‘The wedding will be canceled’ Mark said with great confidence to his wife, while she looked at him sideways ignoring his meaningless comment and not letting it distract her from reading her book.
‘Did you not hear what I just said?’ He said when she did not reply
‘I heard and I refuse to comment on something I don’t understand’ she said still looking at her book.
‘Well, I’ll make it clear to you’ He said faintly smiling
‘I’m listening’ she said putting down the book
‘Simply Sawyer and Kate aren’t going to get married’ He said happily
‘Really?’ She smiled mockingly ‘I know what wedding you were talking about, I just don’t understand why you think it won’t happen’
‘I’ll make it simple to you’ He said sitting on the wooden table in front of her ‘Because, Sara, It’s simply not right!’ He smiled brightly
‘And why is that?’ she looked at him mockingly ‘because marriage is the worst thing that can ever happen to a person?! I don’t think that is your opinion because you would never get married. Or is it because they love each other? That reason would be insanely unreasonable’
‘For god sake Stop pretending that you don’t understand me, while we all know for sure what’s really going on here!’ He said impatiently
‘All we know that Juliet is in love with Sawyer and Jack is so madly in love with Kate since so long!’ She said frankly ‘But we know that Sawyer and Kate are engaged and they love each other without any doubt’
‘No! That what appears to us. But deep inside they are both uncertain whether they really want this or not!’
‘Oh really? How do you know that Mr. Relationships specialized?’
‘Stop mocking me for a second! Sawyer told me about a dream he’s been having ever since they set the date, and he has a bad feeling about that dream!’ He smiled again
‘Of course he’s worried! You men afraid of commitment! The only reason he’s a bad feeling about it is because he won’t be able to go to the bar and pick some blond girl to spend the evening with!’ She rose to her feet and directed her steps to the kitchen while he followed her
‘Come on Sara admit it! It’s an exciting story!’ He said joyfully
‘No it is not an exciting story Mark! It’s a tragic one’ She bent her head sorely while he looked confused and lifted her face to look at him
‘What do you know, Sara?’
She hesitated for a moment then said ‘Well, you know that Jack has been in love with Kate for so long and Juliet is mad about Sawyer but the problem is that neither Sawyer nor Kate senses that thing, not even slightly. Juliet is one of Kate’s bride mates and Jack is Sawyer’s best man. Do you know how painful that would be to watch the one you love the most in this world marrying someone else. Do you know how painful it is to look at him every day and act quiet normally so he wouldn’t know how much you love him and can’t separate your life from his? Do you know how difficult it is to hide those beautiful emotions and to leave those words you want to say unsaid, just suppress them whenever you see him?’ Her eyes formed tears and he looked very touched with her words ‘You don’t know anything, Mark. This isn’t a movie, or a game. Its people’s hearts we are talking about and they could really get hurt. And some wounds can’t be healed easily, some don’t get healed ever’
‘Shooting has been going perfectly this season’ Jack said to Sawyer while they were on their way to Juliet’s hotel. He was smiling slightly though his attractive face seemed very tired
‘Yeah Meredith is a great director’ Sawyer said carelessly
‘Meredith! You mean the creator and one of the writers’s, who happens to be me, is brilliant!’ Jack said laughing
‘Yeah you can boast’ He sighed
In fact he wasn’t in a good mood that day like he’s been most of the times for those past a few days. Sometimes he feels that he doesn’t want to see Kate at all and that he’s really in need to Juliet. He even preferred talking to her than talking to Mark or Jack. There’s something about her, he thought, she’s so beautiful, so caring, her company is so comforting. I forget everything when I talk to her; I forget the whole world and all of my problems when she talks. What am I saying?! It’s Kate who I love not Juliet it’s her who I want to spend my life with not Juliet. He thought that it was true and pretended that he believed her while he had a small part of him saying that it’s not true.
She stood behind the glassy door, to keep herself unnoticed. He’s so charming, she thought sorely. In fact Kate couldn’t help it but to direct her looks towards Jack who was standing discussing a serious matter with Meredith, Sawyer’s sister. Even when he’s serious he looks so irresistibly attractive, she thought. She’d preferred to stay out of the hotel for a while because no one would see her, and she can look at Jack freely without having the fear that someone may see her, or that Sawyer would. Sometimes she feels guilt that she doesn’t love Sawyer as much as she claims, and that he’s being used but just to make Jack jealous. But I really can’t help it but to love him even more each day. She sighed sorely as she stepped into the hotel. She was about to meet Sawyer to consider a few things about the wedding arrangements. It’s a marriage it’s supposed to be joyful and full of laughter not tears and sleepless nights.
‘Hi Kate, how are you?’ Jack heard faintly Sawyer’s voice greeting Kate as she got into the hotel. He turned around and saw the painful scene being rewind in front of him, the sweet smile from Kate’s lips to Sawyer’s happy face, the greeting kiss and hug that has been tormenting him. He wishes if he could be in Sawyer’s place. Would it be so difficult if I was the one that she smiled at this way, that I’m the one who’s free to wrap his arms around her and kiss her? Is it impossible to get the woman who I love the most in this world?
‘Are you ok?’ Mark interrupted Jack and got him out of his thoughts
‘Yes’ Jack said hardly suppressing his tears.
