Chapter 3

  I hear the organ playing, showing that Mum has gotten seated and told them I'm ready. Irena, Maddie and Miran, Rogal's sister, go out behind Rogal's little niece,  Tara, who is our flower girl. They walk escorted by Rogal's older and younger brothers Feros and Tequl and Jerick, Rogal's best friend, respectively. I hear the change in the music, saying it's my turn to go.

We head outside and, under the setting sun, walk towards the alter. The white chairs are attached in rows by white ribbons with yellow and white roses at each chair. The isle itself was a 20x5x2 plank of white wood that has been stained a pale yellow. Above where the minister, Rogal, Irena, Madeline, Feros and Tequl stand is a large white wood overhang covered in more roses.

Dad starts to cry a little as he hands me off to Rogal, so I kiss his cheek.

"I love you, Daddy." I whisper before I walk away.He nods, then sits next to Mum and holds her hand. She is crying, too. Rogal and I hold hands as we repeat the binding words. Tears roll down my face as I smile at my green eyed, blondie. 

"Do you, Rogal, take Glenna as your lawfully wedded wife? To have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until death do you part." Says the minister.

"I do. Forever and longer." Rogal says, squeezing my hands. The minister repeats the words to me but with reversed names.

"I do. Never will we part"

"You may now kiss the Bride" Rogal leans forward to let me throw my arms around his neck. He lifts me up and we kiss passionately.We reluctantly break apart and all our family and friends cheer as we run back down the isle together and off to a white hummer limo, also decorated with ribbon and roses.
