Clarisse played with her bracelets while waiting for the wedding to start.
She hated that word, wedding.
Especially if it was Trevor and Evan's wedding.
Then, the wedding song started playing. She looked up and saw Evan walking toward Trevor at the altar. They were happy and smiling. Everyone else except Clarisse mirrored the happiness. Taylor and Declan were holding hands and sitting closely together. Vanessa and Taylor were quietly flirting with other wedding guests. The preacher said some words and then uttered the best phrase ever :
"Speak now or forever hold your peace."
Clarisse shakily stood up. All eyes were on her. "Um.uh.....I can't .... I can't do this." And with that, she walked out of her row and left the church. Once she was out the door, she sat out on the steps and started crying. It seemed like hours passed before someone found her.
A pair of arms wrapped around Clarisse from behind. Someone muttered "It's okay. Everything will be all right." Clarisse turned around to see that it was Trevor. She didn't know why he was there, but she just wished this moment could last forever.
