took a deep breath as I looked at the small dress store in front
of me. Oh how I didn't want to be here looking for dresses. But
Mom would kill me if I bail now. Let's just hope that it won't
take too long to find the perfect dress. I turned off the car
grabbing my purse that I just started to carry since I had the
twins. I walked into the small store to look for mom. I spotted
her talking to a sales woman standing next to three people. I
held back a groan as I saw who was there. Standing next to Mom
was a semi short, about 5'3, woman with pin straight blonde hair.
She was wearing a blue v neck that went to about mid thigh. I
could see the bulge on her hips were her baby is growing. She was
chomping on her gum twirling her hair around her finger zoning
out. I rolled my eyes at her. I had lost almost all my baby
weight, only really a couple of pounds left but I didn't care. It
just showed that I had my babies and I am proud of it. All my
stretch marks were almost gone or gone thanks to my magical
cream. And when 'Candy' saw that I looked fine she flipped out
screaming at me. I swear I cannot stand her. I looked over
thanking god that Emmy and Audrey are here or I would just walk
right back out of the door. I felt a hand on my shoulder making
me look over. Aunt Kirsty smiled at me. "I know, I didn't want
her to come either but Logan said that we had to get used to her
because she is part of this family if we liked it or not." She
sighed shaking her head at the thought.
"He doesn't see that once she has the kid
she is going to gone faster than beer at Christmas yet does he?"
I asked as we started to slowly walk over to
"No, my son is an idiot. If he just stayed
home like he should have we would not be in this mess and that
poor thing would not have to be here?" I raised my
"Wait she is a poor thing? Since when?" I
asked looking at where Mom and 'Candy' stood. Audrey helped Emmy
up as they both started to walk over. Aunt Kirsty looked at me
before she pulled a face.
"Her, god no. I mean that poor baby! Think
of the therapy we will have to get him so he isn't traumatized
from just coming out of her." I started to laugh as the two
"What are you two talking about?" Emmy
asked with her hand on her belly.
"Nothing." Both of us smirked. Audrey
rolled her eyes before dragging me over to my mom.
"Patty, Ryan is here." She smiled. Mom
looked over at me and smiled.
"You're late." She said.
"Blame Dad. He was the one who took forever
to come over to watch the twins. I was ready to just put them in
their car seats and bring them here with me." I smiled at her.
'Candy' looked at me with a disgusted look as she looked me up
and down. She always hated what I wore. For example today I was
wearing a pair of dark jeans and a blue loose fitting
"What are you wearing?" She asked with
disgust clear in her voice. I looked at her. I started to wonder
how gravity was not affecting her and making those things fall
out of her shirt.
shirt and pants?" I asked raising my eyes brows. She looked down
"Well you look bad." She said lifting her
nose in the air.
don't think I look that bad but I guess I'm not a prissy bitch
like you, who only want a guy to look at your chest. But then
again I work when you only work the corners." I said smugly
before walking over to the others who were looking at dresses.
Mom pulled out dress after dress for me to try on before she
shoved me over to the dressing room.
"Put this on." She said handing me a big
"No way." I said handing it back. She
"Aw come on. We need to have a little fun."
She said pushing me in the room and closing the door. I sighed
and undressed to pull on the dress. I looked at myself in the
mirror and started to laugh. I walked out to them to see them all
looking at a pissed off 'Candy'.
"So what do you think?" I asked ignoring
her. Everyone started to laugh as I stood there in the 40 pounds
of extra weight.
"You look like you just life a fabric store
wearing nothing but Velcro." Emmy said laughing. I turned
know." I giggled before walking back into the dressing room to
try on another dress. I looked through all of the dresses Mom
picked and tried on every single one. It was about the hour and a
half mark when I got to the last one. I looked at the pink sash
on it and pulled a face. "Mom do I have to try this one on I hate
pink." I groaned out to her form the dressing room.
"Yes you have too. You never know which
dress is perfect for you. Now the sales woman also said she has
the sash in different colors if you didn't like the pink." She
called back over the door. I sighed slipped into the dress. I
looked at myself in the mirror. I looked amazing. I felt
Goosebumps forming on my arms as I looked at myself. "Well did
you put it on?" She asked again knocking on the
"Yeah Mom." I whispered coming out of the
door. "It's perfect." I looked at all of my families
"It would look perfect for you and the
wedding if it was either blue like the dress blues of the red
from the stripe on his pants…." Aunt Kirsty said trailing off.
Mom told the sales ladies and she came over with a red sash and
took the pick away. I looked at myself and smiled.
"This is it." I
