The bathroom door opens behind me and Eric and the bridesmaid, Cherise step out. They blush immediately when they see the people that are still standing there and then they look at Trish and her parents.
Trish’s father tenses and he tries to get Trish to release him but her mother steps in.
“No George,” she says firmly. “We’re better than this.” Her words hit home and George listens.
Eric takes off quickly with Cherise heading for the lobby. I watch them go. I want to follow them and scream at them. I have so many obscenities aching to be released from the tip of my tongue but I know that as much as Eric is the villain here, he is also my client and I shouldn’t be taking sides. Or should I?
I bite my tongue as Ashley arrives beside me. Her eyes are filled with tears and I can tell she has already been crying for some time.
I look at her and place my hand on her arm. She doesn’t look at me but looks down at her hands as I quickly steer her away from Trish and her parents.
“Oh God she was right,” Ashley whispers. “She was right and I pressed her to go through with it. Made her go through with it. What have I done?”
