Tina ran her thumb over the printing.
Computer generated invitations. Not embossed like they should be. She never would have allowed cheap crap for her wedding.
Her wedding! What a joke.
This was the second ex-boyfriend who found someone after they finished with her.
A bitter taste formed in her mouth.
She was a better choice than Samantha would ever be. She could get Greg invited to important events to help his career. What did Samantha offer that she couldn’t?
Tina threw the invitation on her bed.
She was going, no matter what. Walking over to her closet she started moving the hangers, looking for a dress, The perfect dress. Her hand paused on the light pink cold shoulder sheath dress. Her hand lingered on the fabric, it was a delicious dress that looked fabulous on her, but the color would make the old biddies in attendance chatter on and on about ‘only the bride should wear white’ it was pink, but barely.
She pushed the dress aside with a vengeance.
She didn’t want ugly comments, she wanted attention. Several hangers away, the perfect dress awaited. Tina yanked the hanger off the rod. Yes. It was perfect.
Red silk would cling to her body like a second glove. Everyone would be looking at her. That’s what she craved. Attention. She deserved it.
Wait until she walked into the church. Every head would turn in her direction. The thought made her smile.
It wasn’t pretty.
