“Becca, I don't feel comfortable doing this!”
“I know. But wewe hated my flirting idea. And if wewe really want Wally back, this is the only thing I can think of to get his attention. Cause wewe will not become a slut because of him!”
“...Wally was right. wewe ARE protective.”
“Thanks hon! upendo wewe too!”
Willow smiled as Becca dragged her into a store. The two looked around a little bit before Willow spoke up.
“You do know this isn't a bridal shop, right?”
“Yes. But wewe wouldn't wear a real wedding dress even if I asked wewe to. So we'll find a dress and spice it up.”
“You really want me to do this?”
Becca turned to her sister.
“Willow, it's a fake marriage. I want to see the look on Wally's face when wewe say you're getting married. Plus, this might just be the kick he needs.”
“I'll need a ring,” Willow pointed out.
“Have no fear, I am here!”
Willow turned, startling at the voice.
“Billy! wewe scared me!”
He hugged her and Willow felt immediate comfort wash over her. Becca smiled and then aliiba a hug of her own.
“Good to see wewe Billy.”
“Same to wewe Becca.”
“Okay. So apparently we're getting married,” Willow said. “And Billy's helping pick the dress?”
“No. Becca forbid it-”he gave Becca a glare-“but I'm helping with everything else. This is my wedding too.”
“Alright. I just...what are we trying to do? For the wedding thing? I've never had to deal with this so I am absolutely clueless!”
“Same here, hon.”
“I'm your wedding planner for a reason. I know what I'm doing.”
“Becca, what do wewe know about weddings? You're thirteen!”
Becca became very silent as she looked through several racks of clothing. Willow watched her intently, sensing a hidden secret. Becca sighed.
“I just know. Can we please leave it at that?”
Becca's voice was vulnerable and Willow felt a small stab of pain. Becca looked at her, her brown eyes hinting at a darkened blue. Willow nodded and Becca went back to work.
“I'll see wewe two later,” Billy said, pecking Willow's cheek before walking away.
Willow looked back at her sister, joining her in the hunt.
“So did wewe guys find something?” Billy asked the girls over lunch.
“Yes! And I can't wait to get started on it!”
Becca smiled at her sister.
“I told you, Willow! You've warmed to the idea! It's fun even if it's not real!”
“You're right Becca. I was just too obsessed with how Wally would feel. But I don't care any more. He never cares when he flirts so why should I?”
“That's the spirit Willow. Too bad it's fake though. I think wewe and Billy would make a lovely couple.”
“You and me both,” Billy said.
Willow just smiled. Becca looked at her sister. She was glowing and looked very happy as the three of them sat in the shade.
“Oh! I have something for you,” Billy said.
He pulled a silver ring with blue sapphires embedded inside. A diamond sat in the center.
“Oh Billy! It's beautiful.”
“I thought so! And I paid a fortune for it! Twenty dollars doesn't go as far as it used to!”
Willow laughed, holding her hand out. Billy slid it on her ring finger, kissing it after. Becca smiled and hugged her sister.
“I feel like you're really getting married!” Becca said.
“But wewe came up with the plan!”
“I know. But...it seems real! And, to me, it seems like it was destined. Meant to be!”
“Becca, you're a hopeless romantic!”
Becca fell into her sister's lap, swooning dramatically. Willow laughed, shaking her head.
“Oh Becca. I upendo you.”
“Same at you, Willow!” Becca exclaimed with a smile.
She wrapped her arms around Willow's waist, burying her head in Willow's stomach. She took a deep breath. The siku had progressed nicely, but Becca still heard Willow's earlier question. Oh Willow. I want to tell wewe how I know what I'm doing. But I can't. I just can't.
