When There Is Nothing Left But Love Chapter 521
The girl was stunned after I got changed. “No wonder Ms. Moore said your beauty is out of the world. You look so beautiful just by putting on the dress,” she said with astonishment.
I cast a faint smile upon hearing her compliment. “Thank you!”
Although she was exaggerating, her compliment made me feel good.
Right when we were about to leave the villa, we ran into Ashton who just came home. He was wearing a black, tailor-made suit as usual. He was tall and well-built, exuding a powerful aura wherever he was.
“Why are you home?” He should be busy with his work at this time, especially now that it was near the end of the year. The outbreak of the scandal had affected the stock prices. Although the situation was under control now, there was still a lot to deal with.
He walked toward me and sized me up. His lips curled upward into a bright smile. “You look beautiful.”
He’s not answering my question. I pursed my lips and habitually put my arm around his. “I’m attending Emery and Hunter’s wedding. She wants me to be her bridesmaid.”
Indirectly, I was explaining why I was dressed like that.
He nodded. “Let’s go together then.” He turned to the girl and the two men, who were staring at him with shock. “I’ll go there with my wife. Since you came in your car, kindly see yourself out then.”
The three of them nodded. The short-haired girl couldn’t help but stare at Ashton until one of the two men elbowed her. She then got into the car and lowered her voice as she spoke to the two men, “I thought it’s just baseless rumor. I never thought Ms. Stovall really is Mr. Fuller’s wife.”
After sending them off, I turned to Ashton. “Are you sure you don’t have to go back to the company?” Today’s a weekday and now it’s only afternoon. Why does he…
“I’m not that busy. I can still make time for my wife to attend a wedding.” He had a tender smile on his face as he pulled my shawl up a little. I instantly felt warmer.
After we got into the car, he put his coat around me. “The weather’s cold. Don’t catch a cold.”
I nodded with a smile. “Today’s a good day indeed.”
He chuckled, then he started the car.
Emery was a free-spirited, open-minded and bold woman. Therefore, she chose to hold her wedding at a five-star hotel at the outskirts of the city.
There were only winter roses and a limited number of chrysanthemums available in K City since it was December.
The Moore family wanted to give Emery a perfect wedding. Therefore, they shipped all kinds of flowers from different cities to the hotel.
The hotel entrance was decorated with the flowers of all four seasons. The view of the venue for the outdoor wedding was breathtaking as if it was a palace surrounded by blooming flowers.
I was captivated by the beautiful view before I got out of the car. I leaned my head on the window and couldn’t move my gaze away.
Perhaps I was in a good mood, I unwittingly tugged at Ashton’s sleeves. “It’s my first time seeing so many different kinds of flowers. I’ve never seen them before!”
R Province had the most suitable weather to plant flowers. Besides, many kinds of flowers could be found in R Province.
However, the hotel was filled with almost all kinds of flowers on earth. It was eye-opening indeed.
Suddenly, I felt a tinge of warmth on my forehead. I turned to Ashton and met his tender gaze as he placed his palm on my forehead.
It was cold outside, so we kept the car windows closed. My forehead bumped into the glass as I was too excited to admire the scenery through the window.
He was worried that I might get hurt.
Smiling, he pulled me into his embrace. “You can see it from here.”
He had the car parked at the hotel’s nicely decorated parking lot, then he opened the door for me.
The ground was laid with a red carpet. Ashton insisted on keeping the coat on me to keep me warm.
As we walked along the red carpet, a well-dressed hotel staff led us into the hotel.
We were to have our lunch in the hotel first. The wedding ceremony would be held only in the evening.
“I’m looking forward to the wedding ceremony,” I whispered in Ashton’s ear as we walked.
I kept my eyes on the red roses that were placed on both sides of the red carpet. They were evenly speckled with gold glitters which made them sparkle under the sunlight, creating an ambience of passionate love.
We hadn’t even set foot in the hotel yet. Thinking of that, I leaned toward Ashton and said, “The decorations of the red carpet at the wedding must be even more glamorous.”
I suddenly remembered that I was the bridesmaid. Looking into Ashton’s dark eyes, I couldn’t help but grin wider. “I’ll follow right behind the broom and the bride, so I get to enjoy a different view from what you see.”
A bright smile flashed across his handsome face. “There’s a fruit plantation behind the hotel. We can take a stroll there after lunch,” he said softly.
I was surprised. “How do you know?”
However, I didn’t think there were any fruits in winter.
Ashton read my mind. “Those plants are shipped from Sumanthova. We can have some fruits,” he explained.
My eyes widened as I gasped, “How do you know?”
He only replied with a smile, then he took me into the hotel.
There was a huge flower cluster at the hotel’s entrance. It was extraordinarily magnificent. I almost dropped my jaw upon seeing that. However, I didn’t want to behave like a country bumpkin in front of the crowd, so I pretended to be collected.
