” If you both agree to the terms, you may sign the papers and officially become man and wife. ”
The lawyer said and David, without hesitation picked the dark inked men and scribbled his signature on it.
He gave me the pen when he was done and I felt undecided all of a sudden.
I felt the heat burn the back of my ear. I could see the fear in Davis eyes.
I was taking too long and the suspense was too much.
” Miss Flaire?.”
I flinched back to reality the moment I heard him drawl out my name.
I stared at him and his eyes kept telling me to sign the papers.
” Miss Flaire. ” He called again.
” Okay. Okay.. ” I exhaled sharply before signing on the documents.
He felt so relaxed from the tension he was feeling moments ago.
I could tell because I was conscious of his eyes
” You’re both joined now as man and wife. ”
“Thank you. ” He thanked the lawyer.
” You may kiss the bride”
I didn’t know when that left my mouth.
” Don’t worry, it’s just a peck on your cheek. ”
Davis replied seeing the way I reacted.
It only made me wonder if I thought about the process of having a child before signing the papers.
He leaned forward and placed a light kiss on my left cheek.
I exhaled sharply and he nodded with a smile.
” Let’s go home Mrs Gregg. ” He held my hand
I flushed at the sound of that.
” Aren’t you making it sound too real?.”
I rolled my eyes.
We were about walking out of the courtroom when a lady stopped us.
“Ohmg! I can’t believe this is real. Davis Gregg is married. ”
” Can… Can I take pictures?.. ” she seemed flushed with too much suprise on her face.
” No ..you..
” Sure.” I grinned. Cutting Davis off.
We took a pose as the pic was taken.
” Can I see?”
She handed me the camera and I looked really pretty on it. With the white gown I had on , It made me wish it was a real court wedding.
Davis on the other hand didn’t have a trace of smile on his face. He was just neutral. I wonder how someone can manage to stay so gloomy for no reason
” Thanks. Can I get the copy?..” I asked.
” That’s enough. Let’s go ”
Davis pulled me by the arm..
” Let go. That hurts!”
I wriggled my arm from his grip when we were already out.
” Why did you have to push me out in such manner?”
I felt offended already.
” Why did you have to let her take us pictures?.huh?’ he waved his hands in the air in demonstration.
” It’s our wedday Davis. Even if it’s fake, at Least, let’s make it a bit real. Pictures aren’t that bad ”
I shook my head.
She doesn’t get any of this, does she?.
” Maybe I didn’t state myself clear before getting you into this. You should be careful okay. Rule Nō 1 , mind the things you do in public. You should be careful Miss Flaire. You don’t just take pictures.. ”
” Why are you making it sound so offensive?. She just wanted to take us a nice picture. At Least don’t make me look stupid. You really don’t have to ruin everybody’s mood because yours is always ruined. I don’t even know why you’re this tight.”
I sighed out. My hand roughing my hair.
” I guess you still have Alot to Know about me . Let’s get out of here. ”
I pulled out my keys and got into the car, she followed suite and j noticed how gloomy she suddenly became.
There’s just more for her to understand.
I ignited the key and revised out of the court premises.
I didn’t drive to my penthouse. Instead I took her to one of my houses in the heart of the city.
” Why are we here?”
” We’ll be staying here for a while. ”
I replied, getting down.
She looked puzzled.
I could see the confusion in her eyes.
” It’s just for a while. ” I added, going over to open her side of the door.
She got down and gulped at the sight of the magnificent building.
” Wow. ”
“You like it?”
I felt a sensation of fulfillment seeing the was she gawked at the beautiful building.
“I love it. Is this your place?.. like you built it?..”
“Yeah. I built it. I knew you’d like the view from here. There’s a beach at the other side of the house. You can visit there at sunset. ”
The bright smile which stretched on get face erased the gloomy expression she wore to this place. A part of me felt,….. Calm she liked the house.
” What about my clothes?.”
” Everything is sorted Mrs Gregg. I fixed that up already. ”
She blushed… The hue on her cheeks were so bold.
She’s easy with words, from my guess.
“And my mom? Jaden? Won’t they come over? Won’t I see them?”
I thought of that already.
” That’s no problem. You’ll see them once we’re done with our honeymoon. ”
” Honey what?…”
Her month dropped open. The unexpected surprise on her face made me wonder how naive she can be sometimes.
” We are newlyweds Mrs Gregg. I shouldn’t fill you into all of these. you know what comes after marriage. I don’t need to tell you that also,..”
I removed the strands of hair that covered a little part of her face.
Then. I leaned forward and placed a soft peck on her cheeks.
” Let’s go in. ”
That was all said before I picked the pace towards the house.
