“She’s here.” The whisper goes around the church, and necks strain to glimpse the bride.
The wedding march and I squeeze my clammy hands together, trying to still the butterflies in my gut. Taking a calming breath, I turn to watch the procession make their way down the aisle.
My breath catches when I see Angie. She’s a vision in a floaty white dress that hugs her generous curves. White roses decorate her hair, and a thin veil trails down her back. Her face glows with hope and happiness and her blue eyes scan the church, smiling at the guests as she passes.
Angie moves like an angel floating down the aisle. Her gaze rests on mine and I beam at her, struck dumb by her beauty. My chest constricts and my heart aches at how beautiful she looks today.
She gives me a small smile before her gaze shifts. Her eyes find Paul’s and they light up, her shy smile turning to a broad grin.
My best friend makes a choking sound deep in his throat, and for the first time in my life, I see tears at the corners of his eyes. Love shines out of them, matched only by the radiant glow coming from his bride.
She reaches the front of the church and takes her place next to Paul. I step back into the Best Man’s position while my heart squeezes itself so hard I clutch my chest.
Today I’ll pass the ring and give a speech and make sure the day is special for the two people I love most in this world. And if my heart bleeds onto the floor while I watch my best friend marry the woman of my dreams, then I’ll never let them know. Any suffering will be done quietly.
They stare into each other’s eyes, and I’m the villain for wishing it was me. They’ll be married, I tell myself. I can get over Angie and find someone of my own to love. But even as I try to convince myself, I know I’ll never get over Angie. I could search the entire and no one will ever come close.
My smile is painted on for the rest of the ceremony. I hand over the ring and watch my best friend tie himself to the woman I love.
