Hello there. My name is Marcella Ivanovich. I' am currently standing in this highly lit church filled with white roses.

I looked at the people around me. I looked at my parents. They were obviously anticipating my answer.

I looked at the priest who was patiently waiting for my answer and I looked at this handsome man standing before me with his blue eyes staring back at me.

"Ahem. I repeat again-" the priest said once more but I cut him off.

I looked at the priest with incredulous eyes. Like I can't believe I'm actually standing here. I'm feeling very stupid for even standing here.

"No! I do not agree with marrying someone I barely know! Much more, someone that I don't love!" I said. I finally got that out of my system. That felt so much better.

I heard the gasped of many people and I didn't look at my parents and quickly stormed out of the church and out of their lives.

I could hear my father shout my name but I didn't look back. I'm tired of this shit.

I want to live my life.

That was me. Marcella Ivanovich. The girl who stormed out of her own wedding which was apparently set up by her parents. Ironic isn't it?

My parents are famous for their numerous fashion lines and industry and they set this wedding up by last minute to the family of Giovanni. They let me marry the heir of the famous Giovanni Airlines.

Psh. Whatever. They didn't really care about me anyway. All they care about is money. Though I do feel sorry for the guy. He looked so hopeful. But unfortunately, I have to run.

So here I' am, running out of the church with an incredibly expensive Gucci wedding dress that I might rip any second now.

The wedding gown had a secret pocket underneath all these layers of satin and tule. That's where I hid my cell phone.

My 3 best friends already knew that I was ditching my own wedding so they prepared for a little road trip.

I got my phone and dialed Julia's number.

"Get over here quick! I'm near the coffee shop." I said as I ran a little bit faster because men were chasing after me. Must be my mother's bodyguards.

"I could see the weird looks that the people gave me as I ran. I don't blame them. It's not everyday you see a girl running in the streets wearing a wedding gown and is being chased by men in suits.

When I saw the familiar red convertible, I quickly jumped in and portions of my dress got ripped and I decided to rip it all the way to my knees and removed the tiara that held my veil.

"Let's rock and roll!" I screamed as we all laughed at how reckless and stupid we were acting.

We passed by the men in black that was chasing me a while ago and with that, Julia sped up like we were in some serious crime and that we needed to get away fast.

We were out of site in less than a minute. No one can track me now since I threw my cell phone on the garbage can on my way.

We don't know where were really going. All we know is that we're gonna have fun.

This all reminds me of the music video of Katy Perry. Hot n' Cold. Well, we were both hot so no question in that.

"That was wicked!" Summer said despite her hair whipping all over her face because of the wind.

Summer Riley is one of my best friends. Her parents own different clothing lines. In fact, I met her on one of my mothers launching of a new lingerie line.

Addison Brown is one of the tough girls I have known over the years. Believe it or not, I met her in Cali. She's a really great friend and fighter. She can especially come in handy when stalkers stalk me.

And last but not least, Julia Forbes. No, she's not the daughter of Forbes but they're as rich as them.

Together, we make one wild group.

"So where are we going?" Addie asked as she tied her brown locks in a bun.
