the hundredth time in ten minutes. She was a total train wreck, but I
understood her, she just wanted everything to be perfect for the big day.
about to get married which was crazy because not so long ago we were just
playing in the backyard imagining getting married to princes and popstars. She
always told me to find someone I want to annoy for the rest of my life. Now she
found her person and I couldn’t be happier for her.
“What if I
trip while walking? Oh my God, I think I’m going to puke,” she started to
breath heavily again. I held onto her shoulder, turned her around and forced
her to look at me.
shut up, you will look like a princess and everything will be okay. I know,
because I will be there to make sure you don’t embarrass yourself.” She smiled
at me thankfully and hugged me tightly.

“I love you
too idiot. Now get ready for getting married,” I told her.

would say no to the bride?
his way in and I got another glimpse of his perfection. He looked so damn good
in his suit, I couldn’t get enough of him. This is why we were almost late in
the morning, because he got dressed and I couldn’t contain myself and we ended
up having a quickie before leaving. Don’t judge me, I needed it!
“How is he?”
Stacy asked him sitting down and poking out her feet. Sam kneeled down and put
on her shoes carefully.
but happy as fuck,” Sam laughed. Stacy shook her head smiling. Sam helped her
get up and we admired her final look. She was so beautiful, I was proud of her.

like little girls, smiling widely into the camera.
Sam commented and then gave back my phone.

Sam and I sneaked out to the hallway.
“Oh God, I
can’t believe my sister is getting married!” I exulted holding on to Sammy.
crazy, I still remember the first time I met her,” he laughed at the memory.
“It was on
my birthday, wasn’t it? We only had been together for a couple of months,” I
laughed remembering that day.
“Yes, and I
was so scared of meeting her, you always told me how she hated your previous

cool too, I’m happy to be here.”
between me and Sam became serious really quickly. I can’t explain why, but we
felt like it was what we needed. After only one and a half year we even moved
together. He became part of my family in no time and I was happy that my
relatives loved him and respected him. I can’t say it was the easiest to be
together because of his career, but we could make things work and I was the
happiest with him.
I gave him
a quick kiss because we didn’t have much time.

true. I was so proud and happy when they finally said ‘I do’ and became husband
and wife. I felt old, because she was twenty-eight, and we were only two years
apart, but I knew that we still had some amazing young years ahead of us.
caught Sammy’s stare at me and we would always smile just for no reason. I
couldn’t help but think that maybe soon enough we will be standing where my
sister was fighting her tears back at that moment.
When it was

never ditch my date on my sister’s wedding.”
everyone took their seat my dad gave a speech that got everyone in tears.
Unfortunately I was the next one to speak and I had to fight with my tears as
well. I talked about the good old times and when I got to know Steve who was
truly and amazing man and I was happy my sister got him. When I was gone I
thought the next one was my sister’s best friend, but then Stacy stood up.
Y/N, for this slightly embarrassing but utterly cute speech,” she laughed still
trying to hold back her tears. “Okay, so now something else is going to come,
and I’m just hoping my sister won’t kill me.” I looked at her with wide eyes
not knowing what she had in mind that had to include me. “I would like to ask
an amazing young man to speak now. Sam?”
turned towards Sam who stood up and didn’t seem to be surprised about the
happening?” I asked confused as he took the mic and turned to me.
Stacy. So firstly I want to congratulate to you, I’m really happy for you guys
and wish the best for you. But I got the approval of the bride to talk about
something else a bit.”
was beating madly in my chest as I started to figure out what was coming next,
but I still couldn’t believe it. “So if there is anyone who doesn’t know it, I’m
Sam Wilkinson, the bride’s sister’s boyfriend, and now let me talk a bit about
how amazing this woman is next to me,” he said pointing to me. “I got to know
her almost five years ago and it took me ten months to win her. Yes, it wasn’t
as easy as anyone would think, she really made me work for it.” Everyone
chuckled on his comment including me. “But finally I won her and it has been
more than four years since we are a couple.” I turned towards Stacy who was
watching Sam with bright eyes and then waved to me to turn back and listen, and
I did so. “When we got together I knew that it would be a long journey, because
it’s never easy with me and I know it, but I want to thank her for never giving
up on me and being there for me when I needed her the most. She is the first
woman I have ever moved in with and she is the first one ever making me do the
dishes but I still managed to continue loving her the same way.” Laughter
again. “Seeing her sister getting married today just made me sure about one
thing. That I also found the person I want to spend the rest of my life, but
no, I didn’t decide it yesterday, I have been knowing it for a while.” He took
a deep breath and with his free hand he tugged into his pocket searching for
something and it put me into shock. “So now I would like to ask the love of my
life a huge question and I just hope that I will get the answer I would die to
got up and as Sam got down to one knee taking a little velvety box out and
popping he held the mic to him so everyone would hear what he was about to say.
love you more than anything and I would love to have you next to me for the
rest of my life. Will you please marry me?”
was holding their breaths back as I was almost unable to answer his question.
Tears run down on my face and I finally managed to nod and then scream: “Yes!”
myself to him feeling like I would just explode. He stood up lifting me with
him and spun me around. Everyone started to clap and cheer around us and I
heard my sister scream out of excitement.
“I love you
so much baby,” Sam murmured into my neck as we continued to cling onto each
“I love you
too,” I sniffed finally pulling away. He took the ring out of the box and slid
it onto my finger. It was so gorgeous I knew I would never take it down ever. I
took his face into my hands and pulled him into a sloppy kiss. Then I felt two
extra hands around us, and when I opened my eyes I saw my sister hugging both
of us crying so badly.

I’m so happy I could help you Sam,” she laughed whipping her tears away.
it all along?” I asked her with amazement.
He asked me the day after we had our date for this day if he could do this.
Obviously I said yes.”
had been planning this since then?” I asked amused. It had been a few months
then, I didn’t even think he would do something like that. It was a total
for my beautiful fiancé,” he said smiling at me. That one word got me by
surprise but it was the best thing hearing him call me his fiancé. I couldn’t be
