Caterers came in with the food as soon as she left. Everyone found a place around the three tables that were set up in the dining room and kitchen. Plates were served. Kyle sat beside me but tried his best not to look in my direction. Frustrated I ate my food. My frustration turned to anger as I thought about the phone call, wondering if he had called Isaac on the day of our wedding. Wondering if he had called Isaac the moment after we had both said “I do”. Me with sincerity, him with a lost look in his eyes. Which left me wondering if he had really wanted to get married in the first place. Before I could wonder anymore one of my sisters stood up to give a toast. It was Layloni, with her beautiful long black hair nearly touching her waist. She smiled at me and nodded at Kyle while she stood with her glass in hand while she tapped the side of it. Everyone stopped talking and looked her way.

Before we cut into that delicious looking cake I think everyone who has to say something should have their chance,” Layloni looked at us, “I'll be the first to admit that I had my doubts this day would ever come. But seeing my little sister all dressed up in white....glowing the way she is, I don't think that there is a chance that she'd rather be anywhere else. Amora has been in love with Kyle since she first laid eyes on him and when you are in love you can go through anything and still come out okay. I know that Kyle has a good heart and will treat my sister right. I wish them all the happiness in the world.” Finishing she sat down, her face slightly red from being the center of attention.

Kyle's father stood up and bent his wine glass toward us. “I don't have much to say,” he said, “I'm proud of my son for doing what is best. I've always liked Amora and her family. If there is anyone that I would like to have as a daughter it would be her. Welcome to the family.”

Everyone chattered their agreements and my cake was wheeled in. I had ordered the cake a week before and when I had seen it arrive earlier that day I had to give the decorator credit. She did a fine job. It wasn't exactly like the picture but the basket weaved white and blue pattern looked almost exactly like a true basket. The small roses that flowed down the one side of the cake nearly looked real enough to not be edible. The crystal M that sat on the cake was something I hadn't seen before. Kyle and I both stood up when the cake was sat in front of us. We did the traditional cutting a piece for each of us and feeding each other a bite. Which resulted in most of my bite being smeared across my cheek. Guests laughed and snapped pictures, all I could think about was that phone call that was so important it couldn't wait.

After everyone had finished the cake Kyle's mother came up to us and told us to go into the living room so we could unwrap our gifts. Kyle smiled at her and grabbed my hand. To me he looked mischievous. Like he knew something I didn't and I started to feel out of the loop. But I followed him into the living room and sat down beside him. His mom hushed the room and she started to hand me gifts. Silverware, crystal wine glasses, silk bed sheets... you get the point. When I opened the last one I was pretty relieved that there wasn't anymore to open. I sat back and smiled at Kyle but he was busy looking at his mom. She shushed everyone again. The room went quiet.

“I don't know if Amora noticed or not but there wasn't a gift from us,” I hadn't been paying attention so I blushed. She smiled at me knowingly. “That's because Kyle's father and I are giving them a week's honeymoon in Hawaii.”

I was floored. Hawaii? Really? My jaw dropped. “What about my work? I can't just go to Hawaii.”

Kyle smiled at me. Sure he could be happy, he probably already arranged for a week off for this but I had no idea. I looked between him and his mom. The whole room was so quiet you could hear people breathing.

“I got you two weeks off,” He leaned over and kissed me on my cheek.

“How?” The phone call, I could smack myself. “When?”

“We leave tomorrow morning,” The whole room started to clap and chatter excitedly and I couldn't help but feel elated myself. Hawaii... wow.

Everyone started to go outside because it looked like it was about time to leave. I was a bit sad that the day was over but ready to go home and go to sleep. Everything had worn me out. Kyle took my hand and led me outside where they showered us with rice. We stepped both got into my car, with the cans dangling off the bumper, and started home to our apartment.
