Memories Chapter 11
Two months later…
Hindi mapakali sa loob ng Shrine of St. Therese of the Child Jesus si Richard kahit naka full blast aircon ang loob ng simbahan. Kasi naman 1 oras na delay ang kanyang kasal. Hindi pa dumadating ang bridal car. Nag-aalala si Richard na baka nagbago isip ni Maya.
Maya nasaan ka na. Huag mo sabihin nagbago ang isip mo ulit.
Dad relax baka na traffic lang sina Mama, Lola at Lolo.
Luke what if nagbago isip ng Mama mo magpakasal sa akin. Did you text them na ba?
It wont happen dad. Mama loves you so much. Yes dad pero walang reply pa eh. Di ron sumasagot si Lola Nanay sa tawag ko.
See. Kalma lang Dad. Relax.
Mamaya lumapit ang wedding coordinator nila. Dumating na daw ang bridal car. Nakahinga ng maluwag si Richard.
Told you dad.
Sinimulan na ang wedding march. Si Luke ang tumayong best man ng ama. Lumakad na siya sa aisle followed by his dad. Then parents of the bride and the groom, principal sponsors, secondary sponsors, bridesmaid and groomsmen. Then abby and Rozan are the flowers girl. Akay-akay ni abby si Rozan. Then Cho, Kristofides and Charlie Jr are the Coin bearer, Ring bearer and Bible bearer respectively. Then Nikki as the Maid of Honor.
After Nikki walks down the aisle. The door of the church closes. Kasi papasok na si Maya.
Bago buksan ang door pumailang ang kantang.
May be the face i can’t forget
A trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price i have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
May be the chill that autumn brings
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day.
May be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell
She who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one’s allowed to see them when they cry
She may be the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows of the past
That i’ll remember till the day i die
May be the reason i survive
The why and wherefore i’m alive
The one i’ll care for through the rough and ready years
Me i’ll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes i’ve got to be
The meaning of my life is
She, she, she
Maya was a picture of a beautiful bride. Wearing a Monique Lhurlier creation –
Satin Strapless A-Line Wedding Dress with Lavish Lace Appliques. She walks graciously and all smiles. Her eyes is bleaming and full of love. She only sees her groom standing afar. She cant wait not to be her side. Then when she was in the middle of the aisle, she was join by her parents. They continue walking until they reach the altar.
Richard on the hand is teary-eyed. He cant believe that he will still have a happye-ecer after ending. He thought that he really lost Maya to James. But now, there his Maya walking the aisle and her eyes is just looking at him. He was so happy. Luke gave him a hanky. The one that Maya gave to wipe the tears in his eyes.
Upon reaching the altar. Tatay Arturo, gave Maya’s hand to Richard.
Richard binibigay ko na sa yo ang bunso ko. Ingatan mo siya at mahalin ng boung puso.
Makaka asa kayo tatay aalagaan ko si Maya.
With that they shakes hand. At nagmano naman siya kay Nanay Teresita.
Maya embraces her parents. Pgil ang pag iyak ng mag-ina dahil baka masira ang mga make -up nila.
Then the wedding mass and ceremony started. Then the guest heard their wedding vows
Maya, today I take you foras my wife. I promise to love you without reservation, comfort you in times of distress, encourage you to achieve all of your goals, laugh with you and cry with you, grow with you in mind, and spirit, always be open and honest with you, and cherish you for as long as we both shall live.
Love can never grow in such a shifting hands. It comes to people who are caple of acknowledging their feelings and willing to risk being THEMSELVES?
Richard, from the moment I first saw you, I knew you were the one with whom I wanted to share my life. Your beauty, heart, and mind inspire me to be the best person I can be. I promise to love you for eternity, respecting you, honoring you, being faithful to you, and sharing my life with you. This is my solemn vow.
The heart’s doesn” t count the years and tears. And if romance is grand the first time. There is nothing more precious than your Second chance of Love
Richard and Maya’s vow:
Richard & Maya: when LOVE is challenged it grows more sure. Uniting two hearts with bonds that endures. Fulfilling the promised pledged with gold. To cherish FOREVER….TO HAVEand HOLD.
It’s LOVE that keeps HEARTS young and beautiful
it’s LOVE that makes LIFE fresh and new
It’s LOVE that keeps DREAMS bright and strong
And helps to make those dreams come true.
Kinilig ang mga andun sa simbahan habang nakikinig sila sa wedding vows ng dalawa.
After that romantic vows. The priest declare the newly weds.
Ladies and gentlemen Mr and Mrs Lim.
Palakpakan ang mga tao.
Binulungan ni Richard si Maya.
Princess I thought you’ll backed out again in our wedding. I was so afraid and nervous.
Sorry Mahal, nahilo kasi ako kanina habang inaayusan. Nakangiting sabi ni Maya.
Ha bakit, hindi ka ba kumain muna?
Hindi mahal….nagpa check up kasi ako noon isang araw and…
I’m 6 weeks pregnant.
Napalakas ang sabi ni Richard na ikinagulat ng lahat na nasa loob ng smbahan.
Pasensya na mga mahal namin kaibigan. Masaya lang ako sa ibinalita ni Maya sa akin. Magkaka-anak na ulit kami.
With that everybody clap and congratulate the newly weds and soon to be parents again.
See all at the reception….
