Why was she doing this again? Oh, right. Because Dom had left her, and she was pregnant - and she couldn't attempt raising a baby on her own. How many people actually succeeded in that? There were statistics, of course, but the fact that she [quite literally] lacked anyone nearby that was at least somewhat relatively close to her, she need this: a husband. So Aislinn was once again trying to use The Vow for something they'd promised her twice before - even though they'd failed her previous two times. And this time, she was prepared for whomever she had been matched up with. After all, what could be worse than what she'd already had? It was horrible, actually. Horrible and hurtful and hard - nothing anyone should ever have to go through. And she had had a job as a counselor in Evergreen, but she'd quit her job because Dom didn't mind, and it had allowed her to stay at home and do what she wanted (plus she received more chances to spend time with Dom rather than them having to figure out their schedules and when they would be able to see each other since Dom had worked at night). Aislinn sighed as she looked into the mirror. This time she wasn't going to fancy herself all up for her wedding. It wouldn't be fair. Plus, her feet were much too swollen to try to actually wear heels. In fact, much to Aislinn's disappointment, she couldn't wear half of her wardrobe anymore, so she had spent a bit of time buying new clothes that would actually fit her. And renting a maternity wedding dress seemed rather pointless, especially since she felt more comfortable in darker colored clothes than white - and this one was much more comfortable, anyway. She'd wear flats and her blue dress and her owl necklace. This was so embarrassing, and she looked young... She was twenty-one, after all. And he'd probably assume, right? She groaned in the dressing room at the same time she heard a knock at the door.
"I'll be right out," Aislinn called. She didn't really like standing much. And she didn't have the same confidence she used to have. Now it was all about her and her baby - him coming first
. Who cares if she was happy? It was all about him and making him happy. Aislinn had decided on Dominic
when she and Dom had found out, but she'd never told Dom that. Sighing deeply, she placed a hand on her abdomen. Seeing it and feeling it made it so real, but it also made her want to cry. She turned away and walked out the door, her red hair resting upon her shoulders. I was down and still straight and just plain and, well... boring
. She didn't really have the patience to fix it or anything. It didn't seem worth it. It was kind of pointless now. Who did she need to look nice for? And Dom had liked her red hair and green eyes, even if she didn't have some fancy hairstyle to show off with it.Aislinn
stood before the doors to the chapel. The music would start soon, and then she'd be walking down the isle holding a bouquet of fake flowers - fake because for some reasons the real ones were messing with her allergies and just making her want to vomit anytime she smelled them nowadays. It was nearing time to meet her groom, and she was thankful he wanted to just get this over with rather than meeting beforehand. It meant that things could get going quicker, and they could move on from this... somehow. "Please, please
like kids," she whispered. If he liked them, then he wouldn't mind having them, too, right?
