Awkward – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS



Thad had been invited to the wedding of an old school friend. They’d been fairly good friends, though not best friends, and they had kept in touch and hung out together some for a while after graduation. But the last couple of years they’d not been in touch much, as they both had gotten good jobs that kept them fairly busy.

Somehow, in that time, Jeremy had managed to get engaged while Thad’s relationships never seemed to last very long. When Thad got the invitation, he decided he would go and bring his current girlfriend, Theresa, with him.

When he arrived at the wedding, Thad was running a few minutes late, and the ceremony was going to start in a few minutes. He greeted Jeremy quickly and Jeremy asked him to meet with him later so he could introduce the bride to him properly. Jeremy agreed, then he and Monica took a seat. There were a lot of guests and the room was packed, so the only space available for them was in a back pew.

The wedding march began playing and the bride entered on her father’s arm. Thad took one look at her and stiffened in his seat. A barely audible gasp escaped his mouth.

“What’s wrong?” Theresa whispered.

“Well, this is awkward,”  Thad muttered back.

“What is?”

“The bride. She’s my ex-girlfriend.”

“What? You didn’t know?”

“No. I mean, I noticed the name on the invitation, but it’s a common name, and I had no idea they knew each other or anything.”

“Do you want to leave?”

“No. I’ll stay. For now, at least. If it gets too weird or anything later, then I might leave. Unless you want to leave?”

“No. I’ll stay if you want to. Besides, it should prove rather entertaining when she finds out you’re here and I’d like to see what happens.”

“Oh, you’re an evil one,” he said with a smirk.

“That’s why you love me,” she replied with a wink.
