I was holding Ryder’s hand tightly, afraid that if I let go of him, I would not be able to support my own weight.
“Honey…” He started. I didn’t respond. I kept on walking and dragging him with me. “Honey!” He called out louder this time around. He actually stopped walking and pulled me towards him.
I was afraid I was going to slip but he caught me spot on, wrapping his arms around my waist and holding me against him.
I closed my eyes as I buried my face on his chest. I felt him hold me tightly. I cried silently in his arms, as he caressed my head gently, whispering soothing words in my ears.
“You're doing great.” He whispered to me.
“I was, until I saw them.” I snorted.
“Even when you saw them.” He said. “He couldn’t take his eyes off you.”
I giggled humorlessly. “He couldn’t believe I had the nerve to show up here tonight.”
“He couldn’t believe he let you go. That’s what I see from the look on his face. Trust me, I'm good at reading people.”
Tears rolled down my cheeks. “Did I do the right thing? Letting him go? He did try to explain himself and get me back, asking for another chance… but I shoved all the wedding details in his face. I didn’t give him a second chance.”
“He doesn’t deserve a second chance. You deserved better.” He said stiffly. I realized, Bryan was somehow getting on Ryder’s nerves.
I couldn’t help feeling… flattered about that.
“I want to forget it all, Ryder.” I whispered to him. “I want to forget them! I want to stop feeling the hurt and the pain.”
He smiled and pinched my nose. “You can’t cheat the healing process.”
“Really? There’s no bypassing this the fastest way possible? I mean, what can take the pain away?”
He sighed. “Time.” He whispered softly, I could swear I heard notes of longing and regret in his dulcet tones.
“There’s no way to fast forward it?”
He shook his head. “You can forget it tonight, but I can’t promise you that you won’t still feel heartbroken in the morning.”
I smiled. “Okay. If only for tonight,Ryder. Help me forget.”
He laughed and put an arm around my shoulders. “Come on then, we have an engagement to celebrate.”
