Goss 2 - Round 23
"This is my place. I bought it with some savings I had."
"It's beautiful Cliff!"
Shocked, she realized they were stopped in front of Quickie Chapel!
"Cliff?" she started to ask.
"I do! I do!" she said, jumping into his arms.
Cliff glanced around, but apparently it was a common enough occurrence outside of the quickie chapel to not draw any attention.
"Not a one," she whispered back as the Statue Pastor began their ceremony.
"I have some unexpected news..." Cliff said nervously, worried his Dad would disapprove.
Amazingly, Gabe responded angrily, "Screw the Potters! They wouldn't know something good if it hit them in the nose! Those little brats made your mother's life a living hell after she left, making her feel guilty for her life after them! Not an ounce of forgiveness, so you tell that sweet little girl that she'll probably never get it from them!"
Gabe was shocked! He'd never heard his Dad talk that way about anyone. He guessed losing his Mom was still too close.
Pulling up a chair, she sat closeby as the family caught up with each other.
"It's good to have you back from college, son," Gabe told Cliff. "And married to boot!"
Cliff pulled Violet into his arms. "I know. It sucks. But, it's their issue, not yours. They'll come around eventually, I'm sure of it!"
Violet sighed. She certainly hoped so. But, Arthur was so mad! And if Arthur said no, then Sabrina & Alan would do whatever he said.
"He hung up!" she cried. "I can't believe he's being like this!"
