Scene 22- To The Bride And Groom

Rachel and Callum's wedding day-28th August- Backworth Household

(Living Room- Danielle and Rachel sitting getting their hair and make up done by Teresa)

Danielle: Don't get mad at me for saying this but are you sure marrying my brother is something you want to do?

Rachel: ( Looks over to Danielle) For once In my life I am sure of it, Just to let you know Lily is coming over in the next five minutes because I have asked her to be my brides maid.

Danielle: That was very kind of you

Rachel: Well i thought it would Be a nice act of kindness you know plus everyone is very close friends with her so i thought that i should try too.

( Tyler walks through the front door with Lily)

Lily: Danielle, It is me and Tyler don't worry alright ( walks into the living room) We brought bubbly ( Puts bottle in the air ) I'll get the glasses.

Tyler: Are you girls ready to party?

Danielle: Hell yeah! 

Rachel: Danielle are you forgetting something?

Danielle: Nope,not that i know on 

Rachel: You are pregnant 

Danielle: One glass isn't going to hurt come one.

Lily: (hands over champagne) Are you excited Rachel?

Rachel: Yeah I think I am.

Lily: How long have you and Callum been together?

Rachel: Hmm about three months or so.

Lily: Been with someone for Three month and you manage to get them to tie the knot, I was with someone for about six years and we never got the chance. Bravo to you.

Callum's household-

( Callum sat in the living room with Ronaldo and James having a pint of beer)

Callum: Ronaldo i just wanted to thank you for deciding to fill in for Steve as my best man. It really does mean a lot to me and Granda i want to thank you for filling in for my dad it sucks at the fact that he isn't here.

( Ronaldo gets a text message and he picks up his phone to look at it) 

James: Please don't tell me something is wrong( Looking at Ronaldo)

Ronaldo Alverez: The only thing that is wrong is the factor my pregnant fiancee is having a glass of champagne while Rachel, Lily and Tyler celebrate.( Pause) Yo dude, ( hits Callum's chest lightly) Did you know Lily is going to be a bridesmaid?

Callum: Yeah She told me yesterday morning.

James: Look Boys, I'm going to give you some advice. Ronaldo , Danielle knows exactly what she is doing. She will just be having one glass to celebrate the fact that both her best friend and her brother are getting married today, She loves that baby inside her and there is no way she would chance harming it. As for you Callum, If you have a problem with Lily being your fiancee's bridesmaid then either you seriously despise the girl or you still love her. Either way you got to figure that out because you are getting married in less than four hours. 

Ronaldo Alverez: James has got a point you know.

Callum: I didn't tell Rachel because I didn't want to hurt her but on one of the days that me and Rachel went into the hospital to visit Sophie, Me and Lily had a moment of passion out side.

James: Well son, You need to decide right now who you want to be with, either way you are going to be hurting someone. ( Pats his shoulder and walks to the kitchen getting another pint.

( Backworth Household)

Danielle: Thank you Teresa for coming here. ( walking Teresa out the door)

Teresa: I hope this wedding will go better for you guys, compared to the last one. ( takes a hold of Danielle's hand) I'm so sorry for your loss.

Danielle: I hope this one goes better too, Thank you

Teresa; ( hands Danielle the letter and walks out the house) If you are ever needing anything just give me a shout alright.

( Danielle smiles and closes the front door)

Tyler: Danielle? Everything alright?

Danielle:Yeah i will be a few minutes.

( woman's voice)Roses are red, Violets are blue, I hear the bells and I'm coming for you! This is not Paul, Beware young one. I am coming for you! Believe it or not Paul actually cares, but for I, well just beware.  To the Bride and Groom, how long will it last. If i remember correctly at the last, 6 hours in and the groom was dead. Roses are red, Violets are blue, Beware Danielle. I'm coming for you!

( Danielle puts the Letter in her pocket and Rachel comes running out living room) 

 Danielle gets a fright) I'm sorry did i just scare you

" Roses are red, Violets are blue, I hear the bells and I'm coming for you! This is not Paul, Beware young one. I am coming for you! Believe it or not Paul actually cares, but for I, well just beware. Danielle, I'm coming for you! To the Bride and Groom, how long will it last.
