FOREVER AND EVER, UNTIL DEATH
I never dreamed my life would be over at the age of twenty three.
I stare back at my empty, dead eyes in my reflection.
The white couture gown fits like a second skin. I don’t know how they
managed it. I never laid eyes on the dress until thirty minutes ago, let alone
tried it on or dealt with alterations. My makeup is heavy, but it looks like
I’m barely wearing anything other than pink gloss on my lips. My hair is
twisted into a complicated updo and whisps tickle my face. It’s youthful,
perfectly imperfect, and appears effortless even though it took over an hour
I’m a work of art.
A team charged into our suite hours ago to work their magic. I’ve never met
any of them, and they didn’t ask what I wanted. In fact, they murmured
amongst themselves in their native language about their project. They only
spoke directly to me when giving me orders in English to sit up straight,
turn, or, the most embarrassing of all, suck it in.
They didn’t care what I wanted. I guess it isn’t their fault. They had their
I look like a dream in the middle of a nightmare.
“Dennis, do something. Anything but this. You’re ruining our lives! It’s
embarrassing. This is your last chance to fix it. Find another way to pay the
debt. Work it off somehow. Do something—just not this. What will people
think when she marries him?”
My father paces back and forth behind me in his smart black tux—in and
out of the reflection like a pendulum. His strides are so violent, he’s sure to
wear a path in the Persian rug. I can’t bear to turn and look him in the eyes.
I haven’t been able to since that dreaded day.
When he stops, the room rumbles around his roar. “You think I have a
choice? I fucking don’t! We’d be dead right now if I hadn’t given into his
demand. Dead, Nellie. All of us!”
And the thing is, I think he’s telling the truth.
“Damn you. I told you to stay away from the Marinos. They’re too
dangerous—Damian especially. He’s evil, and you’re handing our daughter
over to him on a golden platter!” Every muscle in my body tenses when
Mom screams, “Look at what you’ve done!”
It was only five days ago that Dad sat Mom and me down and explained
How Dad fucked up in the worst way with his scariest associate.
I’ll never forget the moment. Dad sat there with his face in his hands,
tension clouding his warm brown eyes as he admitted what he’d done.
A debt—one he can’t begin to repay even if he took out every possible loan
and called in every favor and marker owed to him on the West Coast.
