The wedding - a story

It was a huge white Church and the gay gloomy sky crowned it magnificently. Not a good sign on such a busy day.
"Hurry up soon.."
"Where are you running.."
"Rain is sure to come.."
"Everything will be ruined.."
She was sitting there in a chair adjusting her wedding gown amidst all these chaos.The pale pink gown found its perfect match in her pinkish white skin.People cursed the beautifully knitted veil for concealing the angelic face with fluttering eyes.

He was standing alone & looked taller than usual.He was often compared with Brad Pitt ;such was his charisma.He had a small stubble in his face giving him that boy-next-door look.His greenish blue eyes always lingered even in a
stranger's mind. They made the perfect pair & now they were getting married.

The time had come for them to take the dais.He was already standing there with a sensual smile.He had done this a lot of times & knew by heart what is expected of him.
She walked the carpet with flowers all around.She also knew how to do this perfectly & this was like a walk in the cake.

Finally they said "I Do" & the Priest pronounced them Husband & Wife.The huge applause that followed overpowered nature's roaring thunders.

"Cut.. excellent shot madam.. "
"Very well done sir.."
"Tomorrow the schedule is at 10 AM.. and that will be the last shot of the film.."
It was the director who instructed the versatile actors & walked away with a satisfactory smile.Indeed his job was done.

The two actors were standing alone. He took out a paper from his pocket & handed it to her. "Sign it..I will get it tomorrow..& dont forget tomorrow is the last the way you did a great job today.."
"Thanks.. you also did a wonderful shot..dont worry I wont forget our last day.."
she smiled sarcastically.

"Ok bye then.. "
He left as he always did.

She was looking at the divorce papers in her hands. A drop of water touched them. Was that a tear or the rain?She started walking without answering.

good one.. talking abt brad pitt, i donned his role in the " who am I?" competition held in college. People recognised me as jim carrey

i would compare this post with Jeffrey Archer. well written and executed. kudos. Touching but i feel actors and actress change partner more faster than their wardrobe.

@Honey Bee
Hmm..that was for a twist..
Anyway I dont think both of them would care about these..they would be busy with their next WEDDING.

Thanks Chriz..!!btw I agree with the Jim Carrey part :)

Thanks a lot..!!
Hehe I take that as a very good compliment..:D(did u actually mean it..?? )
Yup..I agree with your thoughts on actors..

s4n705h said...

I meant that. the first time i read it and it was a true Archer way of writing.

Consider me a fan of yours if you continue the same way!!
