*Kent and Holly have written and sent out their wedding invitations.. They both stopped over to visit Holy’s parents.*
Vita: Ohh I am so happy. My little girl is al grown up.
Nick: I am so pleased. Holy you have a good catch. Do not let him go.
Holy: I am pleased that you both approve of Kent.
Kent: I am happy we are all getting along. Please no more interrogations.
Holy: oohh.. Kent hush.
Nick: no no.. Don’t worry about that. Vita and myself trust you Kent. So what are your plans?
Kent: Thank goodness. For the honeymoon Holy and I are going to be visiting sunlight Tides. Then from there we will just enjoy ourselves.
Vita: That is a lovely idea.
Nick: I hope you two have a good income. Perhaps getting your university degree would help with the income.
Vita: I would agree to that too. I want you two to be financially secure before you two start making babies.
Holy: I think It is a great idea to get a degree. Mother, please stop that. I told you and daddy when the time is right we will have babies. Please do not rush us.
*After a while longer of pleasant chatting Holy and Kent decided it was time to leave. They took their time to fay their good byes.*
*Skipping ahead to the day before the wedding.*
*Both Kent and Holy were getting excited about their upcoming wedding. All the planning and prepping was long since finished. Only thing left to do was to wait. Their waiting was cut short by a visit from Holy’s parents.*
A pleasant visit and chatting. The anticipation of the wedding has put everyone in high spirits.*
Nick: Holy We need to be going soon. I will let you have a few minutes.
Holy: What? Daddy what do you mean?
Kent: Now what is going on? Why does Holy have to leave?
Vita: Don’t worry. It is an old wedding custom the Alto family has practiced for generations.
Nick: Vita is right. It is a custom. It is only for one evening. tomorrow you shall see our daughter at the church.
Kent: I.. well.. I do not want her to leave.
Holy: *Hugs Kent close.* Be strong my cuddle bear. Please do this for me. It is only for one night. I know you can do it. *Kisses his cheek.*
Kent: *Hugs Holy as he leans in to whisper in her ear.* I will miss you.
Vita: Good night Kent. Just one night. It will not be long. *Steps outside.*
Nick: Come along now Holy. The sooner we get this bit of unpleasantness done with the sooner you two love birds can be together. *Motions for her daughter to follow him. He too heads outside.*
Holy: Coming daddy. *hugs Kent.* I love you Kent.
Kent: I love you too Holly.
Holy: With a reluctant glance she slides away from his embrace. Be strong my cuddle bear.
Kent: I will. You be strong too my plasma fruit blossom. *Reluctantly he lets her go.*
*Kent slowly follows after Holy. He watches her get into the car. Soon they drive off.*
Kent stays outside watching the car and his girl drive out of sight. He was alone again. He stood there frozen not knowing what to do now. The night seemed darker than usual. Slowly the night chill seeped into his bones. He was feeling chilled he did not want to catch a chill on the night before his wedding, reluctantly he heads inside.*
*Back at the Alto house Holy’s parents were supporting their daughter.*
Vita: My little girl is all grown up. I am so proud of you.
Nick: My girl. I like that Kent fella he is a trustworthy guy. Make sure he treats you well.
Vita: Yes, make sure Kent treats you well. It is getting late it is time to get some sleep. You want to be rested for your big day.
Holy: This is a dream come true. I have no worries about Kent. He is very sweet, but just a bit shy.
Nick: Good night Holy. *Hugs his daughter.* Good night. *Heads out and upstairs to bed.*
Holy: Night daddy.
Vita: Good night Holy. *Hugs her daughter. She too takes her leave. She heads to bed as well.*
Holy: Good night..
*Kent was trying to relax trying to get some rest. He dreams of starting his own family with Holy. He feels giddy like the time he first met Holy. It was lonely for him, but he knew it was just one night.*
*gradually Kent became sleepy and tucked himself into bed. It was odd sleeping alone. He thought the sooner he closes his eyes the sooner he will see Holly, and Holy will see him again.
*Back at the Alto house everyone was in bed. However Holy was finding it hard to sleep without her cuddle bear by her side.*
*Reluctantly she found sleep. Her eyes are closed and she dreams of Kent and their new life together.*
