We deserved a better ending than the one we were given,
It was Christmas Eve morning. Chris was going to spend Christmas with Mr. and Mrs. Kelton. Mr. Kelton was technically Officer Kelton or just Paul. Everyone had a take on it because two years ago Chris’ father was shot dead by an officer, a white officer. His mother was still alive, but she became a heavy drinker and didn’t talk to Chris much or hardly at all anymore. The Keltons reached out to him and he’s been like family to them ever since.

Anne blinked. Then there it was. It was all surreal. She looked down at her bouquet filled with white flowers of all sorts and then at her hand holding it, no ring. Her father was on her left side, walking her down the grass aisle. His eyes were filled with tears, but he blinked them away. She smiled to herself trying to hold back her own because this was supposed to be a happy day, no one could see her watery eyes through her white veil anyways.
