The Wedding Day

Yes, We felt in crazy love .. 
And I knew that she is the one ..

  It took me too long to take that decision almost one month since we are officially a couple (How crazy I am??.. wait there are more).

So I asked her for marriage and she said yes.. 
As soon as possible.
I dont know.
 We will do it.

   Two months later we signed the papers of marriage in the ministry of justice in presence of my brother and two friends (all in jeans) and we became husband and wife.

   I never wanted a wedding party but I knew that it will make her happy to wear the white dress. So we started saving and arranging for the wedding day to be held on 21 June 2013. 

   One week before the wedding day, her family and friends arrived from Spain for the big day. and suddenly I find myself living in our flat with 7 Spanish people (Obviously they speak Spanish.. what a coincidence!!) and I dont understand a word the whole day. We spent the week sightseeing Cairo as its their first time to visit.

   The big day comes and the best thing in the whole week is coming. I AM GOING TO SEND THEM ALL TO THE HOTEL AND STAY ALONE AT HOME (We rented a suit in an hotel close to the wedding place to spend the night there and Drew (The bride) wanted to do the make up there) The family was super nice but I just needed my space alone. With a big smile on my face and a waving hand I say goodbye to the bus driving them to the hotel suit to let the bride prepared for the party. Once they are out of sight I run up to the flat, took off my cloths and laid over the living room couch with my Chivas bottle and a cigarette relaxing and enjoying the calm flat again. Later I took the dogs for a walk and I notice that I am half drunk .. OK Great.. I take my suit in my car and drive to my friend H.

    On my way I called another friend MH. telling him to meet me urgently in front of H´s home. Once I arrived I go out of the car in a classy attitude, threw him the car keys, WASH MY CAR, FILL IT WITH GAS, PUT SOME DECORATION AND ... AHH DONT BE LATE (God I love that my wedding day is today, in other situation he would send me to hell but today I can take advantage to the max).

    First thing I received at the door of H. was a glass of Vodka followed by another one.. Now I am really dizzy.. We order Mcdonalds home delivery with another glass of Vodka and here comes best fact of being a guy.. I shower and put my suit on in 30 min. and once MH. retured the car ready I start driving to wedding place crossing lane to lane. OHHH NOW I AM DRUNK.

  Thank God I arrived safly (I dont now how!!). I met the photographer at the parking and started a conversation while smoking a cigarette the bride arrives in a bus in jeans .. no Limo no nothing .. she even refused that I pick her up from the hotel (snap shot of the photographer: Gazing with an open mouth from the shock).

   Drew and her bridesmaids went to her room to put her dress on and I started socializing with the people till she finishes dressing up and the grand entrance of the woman of my life starts. But its not that easy.. One of the bridesmaids comes running to me yelling that I have to go to Drew now.

Whats wrong?
Just GO.. 
   I enter the room and I find a wounded tiger tear apart anyone gets near to her, ROURING and cursing in Spanish (Thank god I dont understand her) I tried to calm her down by every way but it was impossible.. Hardly I understand that there was a musical band in front of her room preparing for another wedding and she is in panic because of them.. I go out side shout at the band and kick them out of the area and went inside the room thinking that she will look at me as the hero of the day ..SURPRISE.. she is still shouting.. what shall I do?? .. she wants to take off her dress and go home .. nothing in the world can calm down a bride under nerve attack.. calmly I tell her: ¨I will outside waiting for you, If you wanna come I will be glad if you dont I will meet you at home¨and I left the room.

   30 Min. later, The big entrance starts and we have an amazing night full with everything that was not what we planned.. but it was fun..

How did I met an Angel in Satan`s head

     Everything begins when I had a vacation I didn’t ask for, my boss just gave it to me after I`ve been so exhausted in work, I didn´t have a vacation for the last 3 years. I work in Tourism, and my position requires me to work 24/7. I love my work but I never enjoy privacy or hanging out with the guys. My phone rings every 5 minutes, it will cause me brain cancer soon. 

     I had a file I was working on for the past 12 days and I can assure I didn’t sleep more than 3 hours a day. Once I finished it, it was the feast, it’s a national holiday but when you work in Tourism you never get vacations when the rest of the world has free days. But for unknown reasons, my boss told me that I have 5 days off (during the feast!!!) and he will be handling everything. Not only that, he also gave me a big bonus and ordered me to travel somewhere, have fun and don’t answer any phone calls. (God I love my boss) 

    So I decided to go to the beach, and I had 2 options: A group was heading to Ain Sokhna and another group was heading to Ras Shitan (Satan`s head). Well I am used to go Sokhna since its only 120 km away but I`ve never been in Ras Shitan. I really wanted to go but it’s a very long distance to do it with my poor car (717 km). At the end both places are on the Red Sea which I love. So I decided to go to Sokhna so I don’t get more exhausted from the road. 

    At 9:00 pm, S. (who was going to Ras Shitan) called me saying that all of them are going to start their way at 3:00 am and he was just asking if I am going or not. It was an automatic reply without thinking “Yes I am in”. Don’t know why I answered that specially when I already had decided to go with the other group and I didn’t prepare anything for this trip. But that´s what happened. I was already in the street, so I went directly to a sports mall, bought a snorkeling gear, reef shoes and a Frisbee, this is going to be my relaxing trip.

    The meeting point was on the high way at the beginning of the travel road (so good I love driving for long ways even if it’s exhausting). I stopped at the road side in the dark waiting for the guys and I was fixing some stuff in the car truck when suddenly S. stops his car beside me. I started to say hello to him and his wife M. who was sitting beside him. And I got surprised when a dog jumped from the back seat. So I looked and I found a girl sitting with a dog, I couldn’t see her because it was so dark so I just said hello and it was enough, we stared the trip. 

     Next stop for fuel was in Suez (130km) it was around 6:00 am. Four cars stopped and I started to say hello to everybody because there were too many people that I didn’t know. But only one was so interesting for me. She was the girl at the back seat with the dog. She had something like magnet pulling my sight to her but I kept fighting against it. 

    As we arrived and started putting the beach clothes and sitting over the sea I knew that this girl was too dangerous for me. I had to avoid her as much as I can. And anyway my intention in this trip was to relax, relax and relax alone over the sand between the mountains and the sea (because there is nothing more there). I spent the first 3 nights with really small chats with everyone I was almost alone (and it was a good way to avoid the mysterious girl without being rude) swimming, snorkeling, playing volleyball and Frisbee (drunk at night). But there was something that makes me look at her and when I realize I just turn my eyes away. 

   At the last night, we were a few waiting for dinner time on the beach and we started to play cards (I have to deal with her!!!) every second I spent with her proved me that I was right. (THIS GIRL IS TOO DANGROUS FOR ME) Something forced me to concentrate on her the whole time and I didn’t want the game to end, but it did. We stood up and she said “We go take a shower and we meet at the restaurant for dinner” “Ok”. It was the fastest shower I took since I was in the army, I ran to the restaurant and waited. 

    She came with her wet hair and sat with me and the guys and suddenly I found out that the conversation became just between the two of us for no reason (I said I want to avoid this girl). We went back to the beach and again we sat next to each other with the guys but I didn’t feel them, I was just with her talking and talking and talking and I started to know the amazing person inside (who said that he wants to avoid who??). That last night ended with “good night”. Next morning we are traveling back to Cairo, back to work and traffic but the worst was that I will not see this girl again. So I had to find a way. 

    In the morning, I started to pack and do the check out and I was thinking how I can keep in contact with her but at the same time I asked myself “Why? Why?? You don’t want to do this!!!. On the way back I drove 717km alone in the car and she was in the car of S. & M. I kept asking myself “why you didn’t ask her to come with you??” but no answer. But the chance came to me. S. was in a hurry to go to a wedding so I will drive her and a friend home when we arrive to Cairo. 

    When we arrived to Cairo, they came into my car and started talking. My only excuse was that I wanted the pictures she made on the beach so I will add her on facebook (so childish). Once I arrived home I was so exhausted like hell from the drive but I went directly to the laptop, logged in on Facebook and added the strongest magnet on earth. Soon we had a chat ending “Keep my number on your phone as an SOS number” pretending that she is the poor foreigner girl that might need me for help while I am dying that she could ask me for anything. At that moment I felt like a High School nerd who is asking the most popular girl at school to go out. 

    Nonstop Whatsapp chats started until the moment I always wanted came “Wanna have a tea??” 

 Well, the idea of avoiding this dangerous girl was already destroyed. Because 4 months later she became my WIFE!!!!!
