Excerpt & More
Savannah stood in front of the mirror, eyeing the wedding gown hanging behind her. She’d spent hours with her best friend Haley searching for the perfect dress. More time online trying to find the ideal undergarments. Her cream silk steel-boned corset fit perfectly. The lace boyshorts were another surprise for Mark. In a few minutes she’d step into the white dress with red trim and train—with a red panel in the center lined with jewels—then walk down the aisle to the man she loved.
“Savannah, sweetie, you need to get dressed.” Haley’s voice came from behind the mirror. She’d gone to change and walked around the full-length mirror wearing the one-shouldered, crinkle-chiffon Grecian-style bridesmaid’s dress. The deep red complimented Haley’s olive skin tone. Her long black locks fell over her shoulders in soft waves. The woman was absolutely stunning.
“I know. I know. It’s just…” Haley stood in front of Savannah, blocking the view of the dress behind her. She wrapped her hand behind Savannah’s neck and pulled her head down so they were eye-to-eye.
“What? Talk to me.”
She took a deep breath. Could she really admit what was wrong? It was just cold feet, right? The butterflies in her stomach were completely normal. Every bride had an overwhelming urge to throw up just thinking about walking down the aisle. Right?
“What if this is a mistake? I love Mark but maybe we shouldn’t get married. We’ve only been dating for a couple of years. Maybe we’re rushing things. My stomach is flipping in circles like I’m on one of those roller coasters that go upside down. The palms of my hands refuse to stay dry. I can hardly catch my breath when I think about putting the dress on and walking down the aisle. I don’t know what to do, Haley. Am I crazy?”
“No. You’re not crazy.” A smile spread across Haley’s lips. “You’re in love and you’re about to take part in an event that will change your life forever. There is nothing wrong with you, sweetie. It’s called cold feet and everyone gets it to some degree. There’s no such thing as moving too quick if you both love each other and are confident that this is what you want.”
“That’s just it. Maybe this isn’t what I want. What if tomorrow morning I wake up and realize Mark isn’t the perfect guy for me? What then? It’s too late to go back. Then there’s our friendship. What happens when I’m married?”
What if I wake up in the morning and you’re the one I look for lying next to me? Savannah shook her head. Every time Haley walked in the room lately, Savannah’s body fluttered with an emotion she wasn’t ready to identify. That had to explain the doubt she’d started feeling when thinking about getting married.
“Savannah, you and I aren’t going anywhere. Mark and I get along. He knows how much we mean to each other. Don’t add a nonexistent concern to your list of worries. Tomorrow morning you are going to wake up wrapped in the arms of the man you love. And he’s going to cart you off to Bora Bora where the two of you will spend hours making love and enjoying being newlyweds. Now take a deep breath for me and release it slowly. We need to get you dressed.”
Haley was right. She wanted this. Loved Mark. Knew he was the man for her. She and Haley were best friends and had been for years. He wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize that relationship. As long as she could get through the service everything would be fine. Her pulse calmed with each deep breath and slow exhale, as did her erratic thoughts and roiling stomach.
She turned and watched Haley pull the strapless dress off the hanger. The bell skirt flared out as she arranged it so Savannah could step into the material and pull it up over her corset. Then she felt the dress tighten around her torso as her best friend pulled on the satin laces of the back.
Savannah took another deep breath and slowly released it. Between her corset and the dress she would have perfect posture. By the end of the night she’d be ready to strip down and give Mark the best wedding present he could imagine. She couldn’t wait to see the surprise on his face when she took her time easing out of the dress, revealing first her corset, then the garter belt and finally the lace boyshorts with a lace-up back.
Her cheeks flushed with heat, imagining his quick intake of breath when she stood in front of him wearing silk stockings and heels. She’d save the best for last—revealing that her panties were crotchless.
“Now that’s the look of a happy bride.” Haley came back around to Savannah’s front and handed her a bouquet of white and red roses. “You look like an angel, Savannah. Mark is a lucky, lucky man. Let’s go get you married so he can unwrap his present.”
