The Legend of Divine Mystics - Chapter 3.1
In the invitations that were sent to all, the reception would be held in an open area.
I had asked Brownie to come with me, but as usual, she was just too lazy to go out. Well, I can’t blame her, after all, she was still an old lady in contrast to her claims.
I was brought out of my reverie by all the chattering coming from the direction of the party.
Reaching there, I saw an elegantly decorated area bustling with people.
While some were singing, others were dancing to celebrate for the happy future of the couple together. People are congratulating the newlywed couple.
I looked towards Michael, who looked absolutely gorgeous. But I fear that she is going to be really angry with me for not attending her marriage ceremony during the daytime.
Well, in my support, I did say that I was busy baking her wedding cake. I hope she understood and wouldn’t be too angry with me. I was grateful that Sam delivered the cake safely.
That’s when I heard the voice of the person in my mind, Michael herself, breaking my series of thoughts.
“Anu, you are finally here,” shouted Michael, calling my nickname.
She moved towards me, excusing herself through the hoard of people. Only to be interrupted by people now and then. At last, after some huffing and puffing, we come face to face.
“Congratulations, Mich,” I said, with great excitement and happiness for her.
“Stop lying, you don’t even consider me as a friend, do you?!?! You didn’t attend my marriage ceremony. You just know one thing and that is work, work, and work!” Michael said with an angry look.
“I’m really really sorry, Mich, I was a little busy. You know, I just couldn’t leave Brown alone at home. Plus, who do you think made such a lovely cake with extra love just for you?” I said, with fake tears and my best puppy dog eyes.
“Ok ok, I get it! No need to give me that look. You know I’m very weak to your puppy eyes.”
On hearing this, I gave her one of my megawatt smiles.
After that, we enjoyed the party and time flew just like a running stream, continuous and with no sign of stopping. We had a fun-filled night.
Soon after the party ended, I decided to take a short detour. As I walked around, I didn’t realise when I nearly reached the shore. It has been a long time since I last came here.
Sitting on the shore, I calmed myself as I felt the night breeze hitting my face, thinking about the dream which has been haunting me these days. It just felt a little too surreal. Sometimes, it felt as if it wasn’t just some dream, it was reality. But at the same time, it felt impossible, giving the same feeling as a premonition. I sometimes had such premonitions in the form of dreams, but never did any of them felt so confusing.
I started to hum the tune of my favourite song, which helped me feel at peace and think properly. All those emotions that I felt when that wolf approached me, like everything that was happening was absolute…
“Splash….splash.” My stream of thoughts were broken when I heard some noises. Something was moving in the water.
And then suddenly, “Boo!” Fiona appeared, trying to surprise me.
“Jess, I nearly got a heart attack! Do you want to kill me or what, huh?!?” I said, trying to calm my erratic heart.
“Ohhh, come on, don’t be such a loser, Ann.” Fiona liked to call me by that nickname.
