I can smell love.
It’s one of my superpowers.
This wedding is teeming with it. The fragrance. The scent.
It’s freshly cut-flowers, the earth after a rain and the heavy cinnamon
tones of my sister’s chai latte curling through the air like a beckoning
Watching yet another billionaire fall for someone in Deej’s friend group
was not on my bingo card this year, but I’m happy to be on the peripherals
of so many happily ever afters—even if I somewhat disagree with the
capitalist values that produce billionaires in the first place.
My eyes trail the fresh flower bouquets on either side of the aisle. The
pillars are wrapped in a romantic white cloth.
Must cost a fortune.
Not that Cody Bolton’s pockets are hurting for cash.
I glance at the front where Deej and her friends are sitting with their
husbands, cheering the couple on.
Sazuki stands out, being the only Asian guy in the group, but all the
husbands share similar qualities.
How many billionaires even exist in this city?
Or more importantly, how many billionaires are left?
The farmhouse ladies are snagging them up one after another.
A domino effect.
I hope the last domino stops before reaching me.
Clarissa and Cody kiss, and the officiant turns red. He’s yelling
something. I can tell by the veins straining in his neck. Other wedding
guests start shuffling around in their purses or on their seats.
Henry taps me on the shoulder and shoves bubbles at me.

style trumps function. Always.
I reach for the bubbles. Unscrewing the wand, I blow in the newlywed’s
direction. The delicate little bubbles catch the sunlight. Glinting diamonds.
Translucent circles made more beautiful because they’re fragile.
Around me, people are clapping. My hearing aids amplify the noise
almost painfully, but my joy in the moment makes the discomfort easier to
There’s so much energy in the room.
Hands clasped together. Big smiles.
I can feel it.
The happiness. The excitement.
Cody and Clarissa get further down the aisle.
I add my applause as they pass me by.
The air is alive with celebration. Delighted guests, grins stretching wide.
Sweat glistening on their shiny foreheads.
I notice the way the women all lean a little more into their partners. I
can tell which of the men plan on popping the question soon by the way
their eyes soften. I see which guys are definitely never getting married by
the way they gulp and face the ground.
Nothing escapes me.
Like I said, I have superpowers.
The wedding party disappears and Henry gives me a mournful
expression as he signs, “Cute couple. Now where’s the bar?”
I roll my eyes.
Henry stares expectantly at me, waiting for me to sign back
