e the one who hurt her and stood here to marry me in her place. Am I right? ” Atticus sneered at me. From my spot, he looked like he wanted to tear me into pieces.
”Lisa was injured in an accident. ” I was so flustered that I almost stepped on my wedding dress.
”She can be here today. ”
The priest who presided over the wedding stood in front and read the oath. We should be holding hands as we walk down the red carpet. However, Atticus only took one step forward.
”Don expect me to hold your hand. If you want to complete the ceremony, walk the aisle yourself. ” His voice was filled with anger.

When my uncle-cum-foster father told me that I would marry him in place of my sister, my rationality told me that I should refuse, but my emotions won.
I was a hybrid werewolf-human living in a pack, so the probability of me being able to transform into a wolf was very low. I know that I couldn help Atticus much, and he probably didn like me. So, even though Id had a crush on him for many years, Id always kept my feelings to myself.
This incident gave me a chance to marry Atticus. However, a year had passed, and he rarely appeared in the residence I lived in.
