Wedding Story

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The early April chill danced around the cherry blossom trees, causing petals to fall lightly on the dry crisp ground. The usual morning sounds of people making breakfast, hurrying off to work and screaming children were also present in the air of Osaka Avenue. All the houses were exceptionally busy, but one house was far more hectic. House number eight was usually quite relaxed. It belonged to Oliver and soon-to-be Maia Winston. It was the morning of their wedding day and so far everything was running smoothly. Following tradition, Oliver was in a separate location to Maia, but this didn't stop him being there mentally. Absolutely everywhere post-it notes and scrap pieces of pink paper read personal messages. On the gold framed mirror, a note read; You needn't care about your hair... "'Cause you look beautiful all of the time." Maia sang with a smile. She barely left her bedroom as she got ready, as the light blue surroundings calmed her nerves. The hours seemed to fly as Maia and her bridesmaids got ready. Make up bags and cans of hairspray where flying in every direction. Everyone but the bride seemed about to explode with sheer stress. Maia stood alone, pulling her dress over her head. She let it fall down her delicate body and pulled her hair out of her face so she could admire her appearance. The dress was amazingly light, and the colour of empty clouds. It was soft to the touch. ...read more.

Middle

He looked around. Not a single person, or vehicle, in sight. The thought of sleep soon overpowered his mind. I'll shut my eyes for a few minutes, while no-ones here, he thought. The quick nap grew to a slumber. His head slowly flopped onto the wheel. His feet subconsciously pushed harder onto the peddles. Soon, his small blue milk float was reaching record speeds of fifteen miles an hour. It was now 10:40 and he was still fast asleep. A white limo had just hit the same road. In the back, celebrations were already taking place, as Maia sped towards her dreams. "Hey girls, I know you're having a good time, but can we calm it down?" asked the driver, as he turned his head to check on the noise. "Sorry Eugene, deepest regards," one of the already tipsy bridesmaids mimicked. The driver rolled his eyes and turned back to the road. In front of him was a speeding milk float. It hit the front of the limo just as the driver had began to turn. Laughter was replaced with screaming as the limo turned over and bounce onto the cold tarmac. 10:43, and Oliver was getting closer and closer to the venue. J had convinced him to take the longer route as it was always empty, even in rush hour. The radio was blurring the latest chart hits, and the men where singing along. The atmosphere in the car was so comfortable. ...read more.

Conclusion

"CAN I HAVE SOME HELP?!" Jay shouted and he ran over to assist Oliver. Together, they lifted Maia out of the car. Oliver was holding her, keeping her head close to his chest. "The ambulance is coming?" asked Oliver. "Yeah, should be here any minute now." J replied. "Good, make sure everyone is okay." Oliver walked over to a near-by bench, and sat down. Maia still seems pretty lifeless, even thought she was blinking more now and breathing heavily against Oliver's chest. "You know you're going to be okay, don't you?" he smiled at her. Somehow, she could still sense the fear in him. "Ollie...I love you. So much." Maia whimpered and began to breath heavy again. He opened his mouth to talk, but she pushed her finger onto his lips. "Just incase...the worst does happen...you need to know...how happy you've made me." she smiled at him. He smiled back and she kissed him. "You're going to be okay," he said more confidently than before. "I'm tired..." Maia's eyes were barely open, and her head suddenly got heavier. "Mai, listen, you HAVE to keep your eyes open. I can hear the ambulance now. You can sleep soon, but not now. Please." * The late April warmth hit hard against the cherry blossom trees, and the fallen petals on the ground. The usual morning sounds of people making breakfast, hurrying off to work and screaming children was absent from the air of Osaka Avenue. All the houses were quiet, and appeared to be empty. House number eight was defiantly the quietest. It belonged to Oliver Winston. His fianc�e died on their wedding day. ...read more.
