Wedding Day

It was currently a Saturday and I was outside... for once. My mom had pretty much kicked out of the house for the day and get some "fresh air." I was minding my own business walking around my apartment complex. The complex was in a square, so I turn the corner and see... something. I didn't really know what to make of it but what I did know was that Adagio, Aria, and Sonata were apart of it.

"Yo! What are you guys doing?" I asked.

"Hi Joshua! We're having a wedding!" Sonata said.

"A wedding?"

"Yeah! You know, the day a man and women get married and-"

"I know what a wedding is. I want to know why your having one. Who's getting married?"

The three sisters look at one another and then look at me with a cheeky smile. I knew that smile and I didn't like it. I start to speed walk away but Aria caught up to me.

"How about you marry one of us." Aria said.

Now I knew what weddings were. I was not ready to get married and spend my whole life with someone. I was 5, well almost 6 but still! The other thing was that I didn't want to marry any of the 3. I mean, I liked them as friends but not as a wife. I then think about my options, what other choice did I have? If I said no, they would make me. I was trapped 3 against 1, so... I did the only thing I could do, RUN!

I had never ran so fast in my life. But sadly, it couldn't save me otherwise this story wouldn't be, being told right now. Adagio, Aria, and Sonata caught up to me and held me down until I said yes. Before, I knew it they were setting up for the wedding. They took out chairs and started to get everything ready. They had two toy rings, all three of them got dresses, and for me, I got a tuxedo. It was a little big but I wasn't going to complain. Now came the hardest part of them all. Choosing which of the three I was going to marry. Now, all three of them had certain aspects to them.

Adagio acted like the leader of the three. She was the oldest, the smartest, and the tallest. Adagio was better at me at everything school related. She was also very nice and helpful towards others. Many people liked her at school and I was almost certain, every boy in our class except me and Flash had a crush on her. If I chose her and word got out that we got married, I would be on everyone's to kill list. Now, I wasn't scared of them but I didn't want to get beat up every day. Adagio was off the list.

Aria was the middle of the three. She was the most violent but she did have a kind heart. If anyone would mess with Adagio or Sonata she would be there for them. Aria was also very competitive, anyone who challenged her at something would most likely lose. She was very good at video games and was even better at sports. But the thing was, she had an anger issue. Personally, I had an anger issue back then as well but she was like a bomb about to go off at any moment. And I didn't want to get yelled at every second for every little mistake I made. Aria was off list.

Sonata was the youngest of the three. She acted like an airhead most of time. Sometimes I couldn't tell if she was just acting or she just had a screw lose in her head. She was silly and really fun to be around. Sonata would always have a smile on her face even if one of her sisters or me and Flash weren't having a good day. She would always try to make others smile or laugh, she was just a good person. Sometimes I wondered if Sonata ever felt an emotion other than happiness. I hated to say it but Sonata was the only one left. I was going to "marry" Sonata.

"I guess I'll marry Sonata."

"Yes! I'm going to get married!!"

Sonata then starts jumping up and down in happiness. I was already starting to regret choosing Sonata, but I couldn't go back. Adagio put me where I was suppose to stand and wait there. I waited for about a minute and Aria walked up next to me, she had a book in her hand and she looked just as confused as me. A minute later and some music starts to play, I turn my head to see Adagio to the left and walking down the middle was Sonata and her dad. Her dad looked at me and it felt as though we had a conversation inside our heads.

'Do you have any idea what's going on?'

'Trust me if I knew I would tell you. I was forced into this and now I have to marry your daughter. I promise to be the best husband I can be!'

'You better or else.'

Me and him both smile, I was cool with their father and I could tell he was just messing around... I at least hoped he was. They get to the front and he takes Sonata right next to me. I look up and she had some sort of flower crown on, I still never knew where she got it from but whatever. Adagio and her dad take a seat while me and Sonata look at each other. Aria then opened the book and started to speak.

"We are gathered here today for the wedding of Sonata and Joshua."

Aria then went on and talked about some random things that I didn't understand. She then told us to say some nice things to one another. I looked at Sonata confused, did Aria mean to say a compliment? Cause I could go about eyes, hair, clothes, you name it. Sonata seemed to be confused as well because she stayed quite.

"How about we just skip that part and go to the exchange of rings." Their father said.

Thankfully, for me they skipped that part and went to the ring exchange. Me and Sonata place the "rings" on each other's fingers. I smile at Sonata and she smiles at me.

'Well this was a fun wedding.'

That was what I told myself in my mind. I though the wedding was over after the man and woman put on the rings. What I didn't expect was for Aria to say these next 6 words.

"You may now kiss the bride."

I turn my head to look at Aria.

'Kiss?! As in putting my lips on her lips?! Nobody said nothing about kissing anyone! I don't want to kiss Sonata, they can't make me, they can't-'

While I was talking to myself in my head, I didn't notice Sonata turn my head to face her. Before I knew it, I was kissing Sonata.

'Oh, I'm kissing Sonata... I'M KISSING SONATA!?!'

Now, I won't lie. The kiss wasn't that bad in fact it was pretty good. I was just surprised that Sonata forced the kiss onto me. After a while Sonata lets go of me and as for me? I just stood there like an idiot, I turn my head to see Adagio and Aria with wide eyes and their mouths agape. Their dad however... he looked calm... too calm. I couldn't tell if he was mad or just didn't care, that's what confused me. No words were spoken but me and their dad both knew, this wedding was officially over.

"Girls, I think it's time for us to go inside. It's getting late, and I think Joshua needs to go home. Right, Joshua."

I look at their dad and he winks at me, I at first got scared because I though he did it in a romantic way. But then I understood, what he really meant. I nod my head.

"Yeah, my mom's probably going to start to wonder where I am. I don't want her calling the police again."

All four of them look at me like I'm crazy, I start to laugh at their reaction.

"It isn't as bad as you think. She's just very... protective of me. Well, I hope you all have a good rest of your day see you girls back at school." I waved as I started to walk back home. I walk wasn't that bad. A three minute walk at the most and if I wanted to take my time then a five minute walk. However, as I'm walking away I hear and I quote.

"Bye husband! See you on Monday!!"

That day when I got home I just told my home I hung out with Adagio, Aria, and Sonata. I never told her about the wedding or about me getting kissed by Sonata. Once I got to my room that night I realized that was my first kiss ever! I didn't know whether to feel happy or upset.

The good thing about the kiss was that now I could brag to Flash about getting a kiss before him. However, that was my first kiss... and having it with Sonata was questionable. I didn't notice it but at that moment a new feeling had entered my body. As a little kid I didn't think nothing of it, but now I can say at that moment I fell for Sonata.

Now I personally don't have much to say about this day. It was a weird one, but it was an interesting one. I don't think most people can say their first kiss was them having a "wedding" with their friend. And to this day my parents still don't know about the wedding. Will I tell them... one day just not any time soon.
