Love the Hard Way

Chapter10: “By the power vested in me…” March 22, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Melp718 @ 11:21 pm

The following months were a blur for Hazel. Colton was growing up fast. It seemed like just yesterday when she was in the hospital holding him for the first time. Now he was walking around, talking and giggling. She watched him as she sat at the table drinking her morning tea. It was a big day…Jenny and Dennis’s wedding.

It  took a while to happen actually. After Colton was born everyone became busy, she with raising Colton and taking care of her gallery, Jenny had been promoted shortly after and was running campaigns, and Dennis had finished his exams and was now a full fledged pediatrics doctor, in fact he was Coltons doctor now.

When it seemed that life was slowing down and getting into a regular pace, Hazel and Jenny both sat down and planned out the details. Jenny had left much of the bulk of decorations up to Hazel, while she fussed over her dress and the who to invite.  Jenny’s choice has always been a beach side wedding…and Hazel had made it come true.

She reserved a private beach across the city and made  up the wedding scheme with the colors pink, red and white. There was a live pianist and the food was all catered, the blue sky sparkled in the sunshine and the wind blew gently, ruffling the table decorations and the flowers. Everything was ready…


Hazel dabbed at the tears in her eyes as she watched Jenny walk down the aisle, Colton was in her arms as she smiled at her friend. Jenny looked radiant, the wedding dress didn’t add to her beauty, it complimented it, everything were just compliments to her smile. Dennis stood at the alter looking dapper in his tuxedo, the look on his face was priceless, the awe at the woman he was about to marry was enough to tell anyone that those two really were in love.

Hazel watched the ceremony through teary eyes until those final words,

“By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife! You may kiss the bride!”

As they kissed, everyone  seated stood and applauded. It was a beautiful ceremony, a beautiful day as well. The pianist left the piano and turned on the stereo, music pounded and everyone moved to congratulate the new couple before heading to eat and begin the reception festivities.

Hazel let Colton wander around, laughing as he began to dance his own dance.

Jenny pulled her aside and hugged her tightly, her voice filled with emotion,

“Hazel..this is…this is more beautiful than I imagined it could be. The flowers…everything is so beautiful..thank you..this wouldn’t of been possible without you..” She said tears filling her eyes.

“Oh Jenny, stop it. You know this deserves no thanks, I love you more than anything. I don’t know how I could ever get through anything without you by my side. I am proud to say you are more than my friend, you are my sister. Im glad that this wedding was what you wanted.” Hazel said with equal amount of emotion in her voice. It was a tear fest that Dennis interrupted,

“Hey, hey! Whats going on here!! No crying girls! It’s a wonderful day!!” He said picking up Jenny and swinging her around before he got tangled in her train and nearly fell.

Hazel laughed with them and smiled as she watched them lovingly,

“Lets get this party started…” She said aiming at the weak amount of dancers .

Jenny laughed and grabbed her hand as well as her new husbands, “Lets show em how its done!”

      Are they going to go to Egypt for their honeymoon? Maybe they could find out what happened to Samir… Although, it’s their honeymoon, they probably have other things on their minds! 😛
