Behold the Bride

Alone… she was finally alone. Time to exhale…
She turned to face the mirror… every girl dreams of this moment. In wonder, she stared at herself and liked what she saw. She stepped forward and, turning slightly this way and that, examined her reflection to ensure that everything was perfect. Her dress was beautiful, every hair was in place, makeup immaculate… she was ready. All that remained now was the knock on the door to say that it was time. Taking several deep breaths, she stood facing the door, listening for those footsteps… Tick…tick…tick… Are you ready?
