Bubble and squeak

18 wedding 755462It was the bubbles in the champagne that got Poppy tipsy after just one glass.

“Well, you’re getting no sympathy from me,” Mark said, slamming the car door making Poppy whine. “Seatbelt,” he ordered, a little too loudly.

He started the engine as Poppy grabbed the belt and brought it in front of her stomach. She was about to click it in place when Mark thrust his foot on the accelerator making the car lurch then cut out.

Poppy put a hand up to her mouth and closed her eyes. “Please, Mark,” she said as he restarted the car.

She opened her eyes again as they drove away from the hotel and headed for the motorway. Pulling at her purple and pink bridesmaid’s dress, she debated what to say to break the silence. “Please don’t be angry with me, Mark.”

“I’m not angry with you, Poppy,” he replied. “I’m angry with myself. I always knew it was you I should have been marrying. Your sister will never forgive us.”
