Professor Xi is A Woman? - Chapter 2
Wedding bells resounded within the vicinity, welcoming people from all directions.
Flowers fluttered as the winter breeze blew, carrying snow on its way.
The whole scene looked like a fairy tale came true, like an ethereal marriage of a fairy.
Even though the decoration was simple and lacking unlike a wedding of a wealthy family, the winter breeze did its job and left a deep impression.
White roses with beautiful fabric designs created a delicate illusion. The flower embellishments brought the beauty of the church to life. This was the last wedding they would perform hence, they put as much effort as they could with the little money the bride’s family had provided. Regardless, it looked beautiful.
But then again…, the wedding didn’t seem like a multibillionaire heiress’ wedding but of a commoner’s daughter.
This was the Xi family’s eldest daughter’s wedding, but yet they didn’t put in enough effort. The Xi family which was very well-known in the business industry didn’t provide for their daughter’s wedding. What a laughable matter. She would surely be on the front page of the news tomorrow.
Who would ever imagined that this was what the wedding of an heiress looked like?
Some people were jeering at the bride and mocking her for being married away so pathetically, as if the marriage didn’t matter. But the wedding decoration was remarkable for the amount of money used. It might not be extravagant but it looked magical.
“Isn’t this the heiress of Xi family’s wedding?”
“It doesn’t look as extravagant as I thought it will be. Maybe she is a fake princess unlike her sister.”
Some of the guests felt it was disrespectful. It was a wedding, it didn’t matter how much wealth one had as long as the bride received blessings.
One of the guests couldn’t take it. It was a young girl, who looked like she was in her late teens. She glared at those people as if telling them to leave if they were dissatisfied.
Before she could open her mouth to ridicule them, the whispers stopped. The bride walked into the aisle. She looked beautiful yet her naivety and lack of confidence overshadowed her appearance.
Even though she looked shy and timid, the little girl’s face said otherwise, she had no grievances. She was expressionless as if the wedding was just another day. No one noticed the tinge of anticipation in her deep blue eyes, whispering, maybe, just maybe her suffering would end. She too would have someone to rely on.
As she walked down the wedding aisle, the weather changed from bright to gloomy as if a fallen angel was descending to earth. The lightning lit up the sky, thunder rumbled as if announcing the arrival of the queen.
The weather changed rapidly again. It was bright again as if the darkness that engulfed the sky earlier was a figment of their imagination.
Everyone looked at the bride with anticipation and ignored the strange changes in the weather that occurred earlier.
No one noticed a thread of light entered the bride as she walked up the aisle. She felt like she was electrocuted and the pain slowly spread throughout her body. She felt like there were ants crawling on her skin, and yet she paid no attention to it.
As she walked further up the aisle, her mind went blank. She felt a buzz in her head. She couldn’t understand what was happening. She was fine a while ago but now her head suddenly ached as if someone was slowly hammering at it.
“Are you alright? Father should be here soon. I’m sorry that he’s not here to walk you down the aisle,” the bridesmaid beside her whispered.
The little bride was not paying attention to the bridesmaid, who was her little sister as she was overwhelmed by the sudden headache. The little girl continuously talked about their father’s absence as if this was the first time he chose not to participate in something that involved her.
She walked slowly towards the handsome groom and took his hands. Her head which was hurting earlier disappeared as abruptly as it came.
When she became aware of her surroundings, the young girl looked confused. The guests did not notice as they were busy getting acquainted with the both sides of the families, while those who noticed it, thought nothing of it.
“Are you alright?” The handsome groom asked her.
