Book Snippet from Chapter I: An Unbothered Bride-To-Be.
“Tanya! Hurry up, we’re running late!” Shauna yelled to her best friend.
“I’m coming!” She sighed with aggravation.
Tanya’s concern wasn’t being on time. Instead, she concentrated on her hair in the bathroom mirror.
Shauna suddenly appeared in the doorway with her hand rested on a perched hip. “Tanya! Are you serious!?!? Why are you styling your hair now? We’ll have time to come back and get pretty before the rehearsal.”
“I know. But I wanna be pretty now.” She responded, unbothered by her friend’s urgency. “I’ll be done in a minute.”
“With the way I’m rushing and you slowing around, you’d think I’d be the one getting married. Now COME ON GIRL! Ms. Lucy opened the shop today just for us. We can’t hold her up.”
Shauna moved closer, to hurry the process.
“I said…I’m coming.” Tanya moved away. “Chill. We’ll have enough time to get there. We’re only twenty minutes away Shauna.”
“I’ll be in the car when you’re done!” Shauna stormed away.
Tanya stayed in the mirror, relieved to be left alone. She wanted a peaceful morning before the wedding rehearsal. Determined to move on HER time, not anyone else’s.
Living in the “Heart of Dixie” was only supposed to be a pit stop. Tanya relocated from Miami, to help restructure the finance department for the company’s subsidiary. The move was a big adjustment from having a condo by the beach and a lively nightlife. However, living in the city where she attended college, along with moving closer to her close friends, Shauna and Keena, made it a little easier. An added bonus was meeting Kenneth. After that, her plans of moving out of the country fell away as she fell deeper in love.
Their romance developed on a whim. Tanya hired his company for landscaping for her new townhome. The home, which was initially an investment property while working in Birmingham. Kenneth became captivated by her beauty and drive for success. Over time, he would come back to check up on the yard, free of charge of course. Their friendship quickly turned into love. Two years later he proposed, and six months after that, the wedding day was a little over 24 hours away.
