Could Have Been

The bride fixated her eyes on her groom.
Her escort, a good friend of hers, stood right beside her at the back of the entourage.

He leaned towards her and jokingly whispered, “It could have been me.”

She let out a silent laugh.  “It could have been anyone else.”

She looked up and faced him.

He raised his brow, as if expecting for a reply.

She clasped her arm around his.

“Well, it could have been you.” She finally said.

She looked at her groom.  He forced a smile.
They started walking down the aisle.
