Finally it was time to give her the ring, and Sue didnt hide her disappointment when she saw it.
"Told you," Justin whispered.
Jake simply smiled and slipped it on her finger.
"I now pronounce you man and wife," the preacher said. "You may kiss the bride."
He lifted the veil and was struck that she would wear so little make up and still look stunning. She really does have simple but elegant taste. She"s going to throw a fit when she sees her new wardrobe. He already knew he would be assigning Mrs. Parker and her team of seamstresses with a new wardrobe. This time he would have to let Sue talk to her about what she wanted. He didn"t know whether to be relieved or annoyed.
As he bent to kiss her on the lips, she gave a slight turn of her head so he kissed the side of her mouth instead. "Well honey, aren"t you full of surprises today," he teased. Having managed to catch her off guard, he wrapped her in his arms and gave her a long kiss on the mouth.
She was too stunned to react in time to stop him. Several men chuckled and the single women sighed as if imagining he was kissing them. When Jake let go of her, he shot her a triumphant look. She looked flustered and then furious.
They turned to the people as the preacher announced, "I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Jake Mitchell."
She was reluctant to walk down the aisle with him so he gently led her by the arm. "We don"t want to disappoint the people. Remember, it"s only for six months."
She sighed and started walking with him.
