I wait eagerly for Mariana to pick me up constantly peeking out the window every five seconds. "Mariana will show up when she does. Be patient." I groan at Dominic's words. "Patience is a virtue...But it's not one of mine."  

"You think you are cute, don't you?" I smile. "Bitch I'm adorable." Dominic throws his head back laughing. I hear Mariana's car honk out front. "Okay I have to go." I kiss him on the cheek. "I love you and I will see you later." 

I rush out the door and climb into Mariana's car. "Hey you ready?" I nod putting my seat belt on. "Hell yeah I am! We need to pick up my mom first." Mariana pulls onto the road. "Are you sure you two didn't leave in the best terms." I sigh recalling the whole thing 

"I know but I need her to help plan my wedding." I lean against the door and look out the window remembering the dream I had. I want that vision to go right. 

"Hey girls what's going on?" Mom asks as she climbs in an awkward silence falls between us. "Nothing much just running some wedding errands." I say plainly. "How's Dominic?" She just had to touch that nerve didn't she.  

"He's good, it's a lot harder than I thought to block him. Dude is seriously nosy. I had to start reciting the Periodic Table to hide our plans." I run my hands over my face. "Are you okay?"  

"Yeah, I just have been having trouble sleeping that's all." Having that same damn night terror every night tends to do that. "Waking up at two in the morning screaming is exhausting."  

"Yeah that tends to wear you out. How's Dominic handling that?" I smile he's perfection. "Every time he holds me and rubs my back telling me it's okay and I'm safe then we have a quick make out sesh and all is right with the world." Mom cringes in the back seat.  

"Oh, quit it mom I'm not going into detail. You really want to be freaked out I could start talking about our sex life?" Mom's face goes white and her cheeks blush. 

"Please don't." She says like a whisper I smile. I shouldn't get joy out of making her uncomfortable but I don't care I'm getting married and having a baby I can do and say whatever the heck I want. Mariana parks in front of the boutique and we all climb out of the car. Mom grabs my arm. 

"Mariana why don't you go check in, I need to speak to Zoey in private for a moment." Mariana looks to me I nod answer her silent question. I turn to mom as we lean against the car. 

"Speak." I say trying to control my temper. "Zoey, I'm sorry about what I said the other day. I don’t know what came over me. I guess I just wanted to forget what happened and I guess I saw that baby as a result of my failure protecting you. Dominic helped me see that. I acted like a mom not a Blessed I'm sorry and I promise that I will support you any way I can." I clench and unclench my hands then let out a breath relaxing 

"I know. I want to forget too but what happened lead to the most amazing thing in my life." She pulls me into a hug. "Anything you need me to do I will." I smile against her hair.  

"For now, help me plan this wedding." She pulls away and drapes her arms over my neck. "No problem." 

We head into the boutique and follow Mariana to our private dressing room. A middle-aged woman with creamy skin and chocolate brown curly hair. Approaches us.  

"What are you looking for today?" She glances to my mom. "Good to see you Huntress." I look at mom confused. "She's part of our Tribe. Quinn here is our Tribe's Seamstress." She nods to me.  

"Okay, I had a vision about my wedding and I want the dress to be exactly like this." I hand her a sketch I did.  

"A white satin gown, with an A-line silhouette, sweetheart neckline, brush train, lace up back, white ivy design over silk navy blue fabric on the neckline, floral and bead navy blue embroidery along the bottom. Correct?" I nod. "Okay I will return shortly." I take a seat next to mom.  

An hour later Quinn returns with an iPad. "Okay so I have a few base gowns I could do it on." She takes mom's seat and shows me the different dresses. "That one!" I shout when I see the one from my dream.  

"Okay." She puts the iPad down. "Come with me let me get your measurements." She leads me to a small red room after forty-five minutes of measuring we return to mom and Mariana. 

"I will put in the order for the dress and begin working immediately. Can I have your phone number so I can call you when it's ready." I look to mom.  

"Take hers she's the one who's planning it." Mom pays for the dress and we leave. "Okay dress check. Next Cake." We walk down to Wonderland's Bakery. 

"Three tier round cake, 10" Chocolate, 8" Red Velvet and 6" plain Cheesecake, white color cream cheese frosting, with red frosting roses, black paisley design wrapping around the cake and a silhouette cutout wedding topper of bride and groom kissing while groom is holding the bride up with Mr. & Mrs. In a heart behind her." Alice nods and we leave continuing to knock things off the to-do list. After choosing flowers, catering, music and the location we went to lunch.  

"Thank you so much mom for all this. You really are making this so much easier. Now we just need the date and invitations." Mom puts her hand on mine. "No, no, no don't you worry about a thing I have got it covered." The drive home seemed so long. I couldn't wait to get home and curl up in Dominic's arms.  

"What a perfect day." Mariana says pulling into my neighborhood. "Yeah nothing could ruin it." I look over to Mariana and I see a black hummer coming at us at max speed slamming into us the car flips and rolls into a ditch. "Dominic!" I try to reach him but unconsciousness gets me first.
