$h£ was so excited that Darrell’s family have accepted h£r. Th¡s was what $h£ needed. $h£ thought com!ng [email protected]¢k aga!n will create anoth£r war that $h£’ll have to fight.
Wow th¡s is so good,who would’ve thought that th£ Nee’s will accept h£r. But Darrell tw!n broth£rs stay beh!nd and not com!ng to h£r. $h£ wonder if th£y still hate h£r.
But Darrell had mention once that th£y ¢ar£ ab©vt no one except th£mselves.
But th£y ought to grown up from that attitude or as life not taught a lesson by now.
Like $h£ a$$ume th£y went |ns!de and $h£ sigh£d.
” Don’t both£r ab©vt Manuel and Markus th£y only ¢ar£ ab©vt th£mselves ” Amber said ,notic!ng h£r look!ng at that direction.

Th£ cops arrived after a m!nute. Th£y !nformed th£ cops earlier.
Tanya was still unloose. Th£ cops were look!ng for h£r and th£y had !nvestigate Tanya’s two friends. But th£y couldn’t f!nd h£r wh£reab©vt. Th£y had gone to th£ places $h£ would be but to no avail. Th£ cops add have th£ airport closed for a week so $h£ won’t flew to anoth£r country.
Kris was gonna go home tomorrow. h£ had spend extra days. But h£ really got important bus!ness to attend to. h£ felt bad for leav!ng Natalie and Darrell !n th¡s critical time. But h£ got no choice.
Natalie was !n th£ d!nn!ng and was sipp!ng h¡s w!ne. h£ really don’t wanna go and mostly it was because of Judy. h£ wonder what impact $h£ has on h¡m. h£ was braz!ng h¡s h£ad on th£ last thought wh£n h£ h£ard a knock on th£ door.
Would could it be except Judy. h£ went to open th£ door.

” Please don’t go ,please ” $h£ cried.
Kris didn’t say anyth!ng but j√$t rubb£d h£r [email protected]¢k.
” But why? ” h£ asked softly after awhile ,h¡s h£art ach£d for h£r.
” Because I can’t stay with©vt you ” $h£ blurted ©vt.
” But why ? ” h£ asked aga!n.
Th£re is someth!ng m©r£ to that.
” Because I love you ” $h£ confess after much h£sitation.
Kris brought h£r to face h¡m with shock register on h¡s face.
” You what ”
” I’m !n love with you. I know is too early to tell you th¡s. You’ve only short time h£re. I j√$t wanna say it before you go ” $h£ sniffed.
” But you j√$t like a kid sister to me . Am too old for you ” Kris said,but someth!ng !n h¡m was tell!ng h¡m that h£ was ly!ng to h¡mself. $h£ was m©r£ like a kid sister.
” Am twenty one and Natalie told me you’re thirty two. You’re j√$t twelve years older than me ” $h£ stated.
” Is that not much ?” Kris said.
” Is not much. Beside age is j√$t a number ” $h£ frowned, irritated that h£ was referr!ng h£r as a kid.
” I don’t expect you to return my feel!ngs. I j√$t wanna say it at least ” $h£ said sadly .

$h£ gave h¡m a hug aga!n and cried. h¡s h£art ach£d aga!n.
Damn why is $h£ cry!ng.
Darrell had taken Natalie ©vt of a date !n a restaurant. Th£y didn’t want Tanya disappearance affect th£ir realtionship. And Natalie would not let h£r poke ©vt of somewh£re and blackmail h£r aga!n. Darrell was always gonna protect h£r. $h£ was ¢ar£ful with h£r m©v£ments and everyone as well.
After d!nner ,Darrell asked Natalie to close h£r eyes and $h£ did so. Darrell got d©wΠ !n one kneel and th£n brought a r!ng box from h¡s pocket and th£n open it.
” you can now open your eyes ” h£ said softly.
$h£ open h£r eyes and h£r eyes widen !n surprise. $h£ cover h£r m©vth excitedly like oth£r women would do.
” I wanted to do th¡s th£ day you left me. But now I wanna take our relationship to th£ next chapter ” h£ said ,eyes glistens with love.
Natalie felt bad. h£ must have be h£art broken by h£r leav!ng ,h£ thought.
” Am sorry for what I did ” Natalie who was look!ng happy was sad now.
” Is alright. I don’t ¢ar£ ab©vt th£ past anym©r£ . Will you marry me ” h£ requested softly.
” Yes ” a tear left h£r eye.
h£ place th£ r!ng !n h£r f!ng£r and got up and th£n planted a klzz on h£r foreh£ad.
$h£ hugged h¡m and th£n wh£n th£y dis£ngage h£ took h£r l¡ps !n h£rs and Natalie’s tvmmy dance deliciously.
Tanya was sitt!ng sipp!ng a w!ne alone. $h£ t!ghten h£r [email protected] on th£ gla$$. $h£ was so annoyed.
Three days ago $h£ had managed to escape from everyone.
$h£ parked h£r car somewh£re and board a cab because $h£ knew that th£y’ll follow h£r if $h£ keep us!ng h£r car.
And th£n $h£’d went to one of h£r house which $h£ visited wh£never $h£ wanna be alone and clear h£r h£ad. $h£ had that house wh£n $h£ started ch£at!ng on Darrell. $h£ leave mostly !n th£ underground !ncase someone f!nd ©vt ab©vt th¡s place. Th£y won’t know ab©vt th£ underground because it was hidden !n a secure place.
” S!nce I can’t have you anym©r£ I’ll let no one else have you. I won’t let that pauper be happy wh£n am sad. I take you away from h£r so $h£ can experience th£ pa!n am feel!ng ” $h£ gritted slyly.
Everyone was !n th£ church wait!ng for th£ bride to arrive at th£ altar. Darrell was !n th£ altar wait!ng excitedly for h¡s bride Natalie. h£ was ab©vt marry!ng th£ love of h¡s life.
Th£ door of th£ church opened. Natalie walked !n and everyone start clapp!ng. Judy was th£ bridesmaid hold!ng Natalie’s veil. Amber was th£ flower girl and Nora as !nsisted on be a little bride so th£y make h£r a little bride and while Darrell was th£ little groom. Th£y would’ve given Kristen any position if it was possible. $h£ seems okay with Nora been th£ little bride and no spr!ng of jealously was found !n h£r. $h£ was !ndeed a good child. However $h£ made th£m promise that $h£’ll be th£ little bride wh£n Judy wanna get married. Th£ adults th£y all laugh. $h£ would’ve grown by th£n and can’t be a little bride anym©r£.
” If anyone aga!nst th¡s jo!n!ng of th¡s holy matrimony should speak up now oth£rwise rema!n silent forever ” th£ priest said.
h£ repeated it aga!n and j√$t as h£ was ab©vt to say th£ last three words someone sh©vted.
” Me ”
Everyone one turned and saw Tanya. $h£ was dress !n a black ₱v||over and a black trousers. $h£ rem©v£d th£ cap from h£r h£ad and h£r hair bounce d©wΠ.
Natalie [email protected] as $h£ saw h£r and Darrell look at h£r morosely.
Everyone stood up and watch h£r. $h£ smirked at th£m all.
” Did you th!nk I’ll let you get married. No way if i can’t have you Darrell ,th£n I won’t let anyone have you ” $h£ yelled.
” You bitch how dare you show up h£re ” Darrell yelled [email protected]¢k at h£r.
” To kill you and wh£n am done I’ll kill your bride ” $h£ blurted ©vt and th£n $h£ ₱v|| a pistol ©vt of th£ place $h£ tuck th£ pistol and po!nted it at Darrell.
Natalie [email protected] and quickly went to block th£ view so Tanya couldn’t shoot h¡m.
” Okay I’ll kill you first ” Tanya said.
” Someone stop th¡s crazy lady ” Mrs Olivia yelled.
Tanya ₱v|| th£ trigger ,Darrell ₱ush Natalie ©vt of th£ way. Natalie who had fell quickly turn immediately th!nk!ng it was Darrell $h£ sh°t.
But th£ bullet didn’t even hit Darrell. Everyone [email protected] as th£y saw Nora on th£ floor with blood ooz!ng ©vt of h£r.
