Inside the entrance of our ranch, I was transported in a different world entirely that I had to re-enter just to make sure that I was in the right lot.
There were beautifully hanging roses and lanterns on every tree, and at the path inside leading to our ranch house, there was an enchanting blur of white – like a cave.
I still followed the laid out bundled of white roses, thinking along the way on how many roses had been plucked just for this day.
I really couldn’t fathom on how did Cain plan out all of this.
When did he even arranged it?
The blur of white was getting closer now, and a gasp escaped my lips when I had gotten a clear view of it.
It was like an entrance you see in those fairy tales. Flowers hanging down from trees made you feel like it was raining snow as soft white rose petals carpeted the ground where blossoms and lights were strategically positioned at the sides and backgrounds to complete the whole appeal that would surely captured once emotions.
It was magical!
I continued to follow the path laid out for me, and when I reached a turn where I could almost see the end – I lost it.
I literary cried when my eyes found his.
There he was in his all-white tuxedo, dashing and handsome in all his glory bathe under the warm rays of the sun. His frosty eyes now thawed and flashes of emotions glint on it – so fast that I couldn’t catch up. Happiness. Love. Adoration. Joy. Contentment.
His usual cold, expressionless face now warm and was holding a smile.
I didn’t know what happened next. Everything was a blur as I tried desperately to see beyond the tears.
Everything was in slow motion.
Before I knew what was happening, my father had already guided me to walked towards the man.
Along the way, there were people present. People that are important to me and love.
My family who couldn’t stop the tears from their eyes.
My mother who howled like a mad woman.
The twins who also have tears in their eyes – for a whole new different reason.
Zhane with his usual boyish grin together with Clyde and Fin.
Vic and Michael, their eyes smiling, yet held an ‘I couldn’t believe you’ kind of face.
Uncle Luke with his usual intimidating self now held a warm smile. I could even see his eyes glistened.
Eva Hart, with her usual, ever-changing stylish hair, looking all proud and smug at me with a silly grin on her face.
Zoe who was waving at me like crazy. She seemed to be laughing in tears and shouting at the same time, but I was too overwhelmed to even understand what she was saying.
Estela who like me was also crying non-stop as she tried desperately to take every shot, every angle she could master while Zhander had a wry smile on his lips, trying to calm his girlfriend down.
Then my in-laws with Hynes and Lily Fay embracing each other, their mouth moving uttering the words ‘thank you’ and other words that I could no longer decipher.
I blinked my tears, and when my eyes regained its clearness, I was in front of him – holding his hand.
My father kissed my forehead and tapped Cain’s shoulder, and with a flushed face and reddened eyes – he went to my mother’s side.
And now, there was a man dress in all white in front of us, saying things that didn’t make any sense to me.
Cain squeezed my hand, and I was pulled back from the trance.
“Are you alright?”
“I still seemed to be dreaming,” I said in a daze.
“You’re not dreaming my love.”
Then he rubbed his thumb on my palm.
“We’re really getting married.”
“How is that possible? I’m still a minor.” I mumbled, still somewhat confused from all of this.
“Well, the truth is… I wanted to wait for you. Wanted to slowly show you my world… but that incident had to happen. And when you still stayed with me – all restrains left me.”
He softly whispered while the person in white in front of us continued to chant words I didn’t understand.
“It still didn’t answer my question.”
I squeezed back his hand as my eyes didn’t leave his.
“Leanna, there are plenty of ways to get married even when you’re not of legal age yet. All I had to do was pull some strings, then have your parents signed some papers. And that’s it.” He winked at me with his boyish grin that I couldn’t help but chuckle.
I took a quick glanced at my parents, and like they knew what we’re talking about – flashed some papers in their hands with their silly grin.
“You’re incorrigibly outrageous.”
“Yet, you still love me nevertheless.”
The music changed and the people cheered, making me turned around.
Little Pluffy, with our three other dogs behind him, complete with vest, shoes and bow tie, slowly walked on the carpet of white rose petals with a tiny basket, which I presume were our rings, in his mouth.
“Oh my god!! Sooo cute!!”
I squealed and pet little Pluffy while our other dogs instantly set off towards my mother when they saw her, little Pluffy sat like a good obedient little pup behind us – wagging his tail.
Cain was holding my hand now, and I started to sob again – like uncontrollably.
His whole person radiated warmth.
His once frosty eyes were smiling.
His once cold, expressionless face now gone and replaced by many emotions of love.
“Leanna, since the moment I met you, I felt that my soul had loved you since the beginning of everything. In your eyes, I found heaven. In your lips, I found happiness. In your soul, I found peace. In your heart, I found love. With you, I am home… and with this ring, I give you my heart, body, and soul. I vow from this day forth, I will love you no matter what we go through, come thunder, hail or snow. Rich or Poor, I won’t ever let you go. Even if the world turns cruel, the rivers run dry, the earth burned scorched. I guarantee, you’ll always have me, each day, each month, each year. Even if distance will separate us. Time will drift us. Death will end us. I will, until the end of time, forever continue to love loving you.”
I cried while smiling and weakly hit his chest.
“You’ve prepared…. *sob…. your lines…. *sob… This is so…. *hiccup…. sudden to me. You’re unfair.”
Cain coyly grinned as he tilted his head to the side.
“Just say that you’ll love me forever.”
I gazed at his challenging stare and sniffled to calm myself.
Then I held his hand and lost myself in his eyes.
“Cain, the moment I met you, I wanted to run away.”
*chuckling and laughter
“In your eyes, I found coldness. In your voice, I found fear. In your actions, I found indifference. In your soul, I found loneliness. In your heart, I found cruelty…… Yet, your every stare made me warm. With every vibration of your voice filled me with courage. With your touch, I feel love. In your embrace, I feel safe. With every beat of your heart, I feel peace. Every second, every minute, every hour, you made me happy. With you, I found parts of me that I didn’t even knew existed. In you, I found a love that I no longer believe was real… And with this ring, I give you my heart, my body, and soul. Even though I’m unsure of the future, I’m certain that I love you and I will continue to love you forever. Beyond eternity. Across reincarnations. Until the end of time.
