I should have known this would happen when I didn't know what day it was. Just before class this morning, Heather gave me a note telling me to stop by the Student Union after class today. I really am starting to hate that Student Union. When I got there Heather, Colleen, Kristine, and Sheila were waiting for me. As I sat down, Colleen pushed a blue duffel bag over to me. I knew what was in it before I even unzipped the bag. They made it really clear that I needed to go in the bathroom and change. I headed to one of the private bathrooms where despite shaking hands I put on a red sweater, black and red plaid skirt, black tights, and a pair of black boots which they must have removed from my closet earlier. I did my best to makeup my face and I went out to find out that the reason I was out in public like this was because we would be going to the bridal shop. When I was ready, Kristine came in and put my hair into a bun.
I really tried to talk my way out of it and started to back away, which didn't go over very well. Heather was on me in a second and I soon found my hands cuffed behind me. However, with 4 girls around me, it would have been pretty hard for anybody to get a view of it. I was helped into the car, which took some doing. I have only ridden in a skirt a few times so getting into a car in a short skirt without use of my hands was not easy. I sat down in the backseat with Heather on one side of me and Colleen on the other. Then Sheila pocked the truck--lucky for me she remembered there was duct tape back there. A large piece soon covered my mouth, which pretty much ended my only means of complaint. I could have gotten the tongue off with my lips and tongue, but it would have just been replaced with a lot more tape.
When we got there, I was asked if I'd behave and when I agreed, I was uncuffed and told to fix my lipstick, which I did. The girls then let me into the bridal shop where were were greeted by two women. One only a little older than us named Chrystal and the other one about 28 name Katherine who was delighted that we had the same name.
They got a real kick out of what was going on and though a bridal party came in while we were leaving and they started acting more professional, before then I was constantly being called Princess. She asked Colleen what they wanted and Colleen said they wanted a few pictures of me modeling wedding dresses. They said that was fine if they didn't name the store or photograph either of them. I tried on several dresses and pictures were taken. Katherine probably talked herself into a sale eventually by showing them bridal corsets. I didn't have to wear one, but Colleen really seemed intrigued.
I'm way behind on comments and questions. I'll try and get to them soon.
