"Keep the secret." Rose nudged me forward and my heart started booming uncontrollably. I took slow paces, one foot in front of the other, that's it.
"Excuse me, are you Miss Katherina Delino?"
Mamma looked up and said, "Why yes I--A-allegra?" I nodded. Mamma could always recognize my face. Even if it was slightly different. I went up to her and hugged her lightly, making sure my strength was in control.
Mamma begin to sob and I wanted to too, but I couldn't. I just held there for as long as I could.
"A-a-allegra, Papa` and I have missed you so much, Allegra what happened mia cuore?
What happened? Are you still with Albie, are you--"
"Yes I'm still with Albie. We're getting married just like you said when I was just a bambina.
I love him so much Mamma..I'm fine. Nothing happened, I--I lost touch. I'm so sorry. Please forgive me."
"I don't care about before. As long as you're with me now. And I'm not gonna ask about--well yea. I always knew my little Allegra would marry Alberto. Now let me help me find the dress I knew you've always wanted. Come with me darling."
Mamma took my hand and dragged me towards the vault. I gasped. How could I forget?! Mamma's dress was there. She put in the code and led me in. And there it was
. The dress I'd wanted my whole life.
I hugged my Mamma tightly again.
"Thank you thank you thank you!" I screeched. "Let's go try it on! And I want you to meet my bridesmaids and my very best friend who happens to be my maid of honor."
I thought about Matilda again and I missed her. Where was my other bridesmaid? (By the way Allegra controls thoughts, she doesn't block them. Or does someone already have that power, I'm not sure?)
