Stray Bullet- Part 34

“I want fish,” Stella-Marie declared.
“That’s good because I have reservations at Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips at The Linq Promenade,” Tina declared, “I think you’ll like this place Stella-Marie. It has old telephone booths to exit and enter the restaurant.”
“What’s a phone booth?” Stella-Marie asked.
“You’ll see,” I replied.
“The younger generation needs more education,” Aunt Louise commented, “Are you sure that this is a good place I smell decaying fish.”
“Your olfactory is off. This place smells wonderful,” I said.
“I think it smells wonderful too. It has a lovely fragrant smell as well,” Tina agreed.
“I like fish. I want fish with fries,” Stella-Marie said.
“I’m going to have shrimp,” Tina stated.
“Can I have that and fish?” Stella-Marie begged.
“Sure,” Tina said.
“What about cake? There’s supposed to be wedding cake,” Stella-Marie complained.
“I ordered a cake,” Aunt Louise stated.
“How did you know I picked Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant?” Tina asked.
“I’m afraid I overheard you making the reservation so I called back and they promised to produce a wedding cake.”

The meal was wonderful and we all had a wonderful celebration. I couldn’t believe me good fortune. Here I was married to the kindest most beautiful doctor in the world. Life was good, everyone was happy so why did I have this bad feeling at the bottom of my stomach? I didn’t carry any embers for my murderous ex-wife so why did I feel so off?  Nerves I thought just left over feelings from the past and my bad marriage. Tina truly loved me and we were going to have a new child to love. I was truly blessed. I smiled at my bride and then my child. It would all be bliss as Aunt Louise always cautioned me I had to quit borrowing trouble, I was a married man with two kids I was lucky! But Tina had been giving me looks all evening like she wanted to say something but didn’t.

We flew home that evening and Aunt Louise took Stella-Marie for the night while we went to honeymoon at Tina’s house.
