straight down the line

Old Photo

“He was supposed to be mine”, “What does she have that I don’t have”, were some of her rants.

The fathers of the couple had agreed to the possibility of a marriage years before. The older sister had it in her head that the groom would be hers. She had a high opinion of herself, thinking less of the youngest sister.

When the groom came to meet the sisters, he took one look at the youngest and new that she was the one for him. She was beautiful, smart, and sweet. He thought that she would be the perfect wife for him.

The oldest sister came of as arrogant, hateful, and condescending. He knew that this would not be good for his shop at home or his family.

Right before the picture was taken, the brides father told the oldest sister that if she made another scene, he was shipping her off to a nunnery. Therefore, when the picture was taken, everyone was trying to get through the pictures.
