Chapter 406: The Grand Finale (2)
Shen Jingbin being beautiful was a well-known fact amongst everyone. It was as if she were God’s finest creation, and she looked perfect from every angle imaginable. Even Abner, who was hailed as a king in the realm of cinematography, didn’t dare to hit the shutter on his camera for fear of not being able to fully capture her beauty.
But now, Shen Jingbin, dressed in her wedding gown, completely shattered everyone’s conception of beauty. Never did they imagine that a woman’s beauty could reach such heights.
Every moment spent looking at her was precious, and spending even a single second blinking was seen as a waste.
Just as everyone was captivated by her beauty, the door to the men’s changing room quietly opened and a man clothed in a white garment stepped out. He silently made his way towards Shen Jingbin and stopped behind her. A smile broke across his face as he gazed at the woman before him. The tender emotion in his eyes caused the hearts of all women present to beat faster and they couldn’t help but blush.
Shen Jingbin had gone past the pinnacle of beauty, and it was hard to think of someone - man or woman - who could withstand the psychological pressure of standing beside such a person. But, such thoughts fled everyone’s minds when they laid eyes on Zhao Chengning.
Yes, it had to be this man. No one other than him was suitable.
When Zhao Chengning made his appearance, Shen Jingbin restrained her aggressive demeanor and slowly replaced it with shyness and gentleness instead. That was what her partner had given her.
On the other hand, Shen Jingbin’s beauty caused Zhao Chengning to become even more eye-catching.
Sensing a presence, Shen Jingbin turned back and spotted Zhao Chengning wearing a white tuxedo. The meticulously crafted suit conformed to his proportions, bringing out his well-built figure. He had handsome features and wore a smile on his face. Not a hair on his head was out of place. Every part of his ensemble was just right; there were no excessive embellishments and nothing was lacking.
Upon seeing her look back, he walked over to her side, bowed, and stretched out his hand.
Shen Jingbin returned his bow with a curtsy of her own and gave him her hand with a look of joy on her face.
Zhao Chengning enveloped her petite hand within his own. The heat transmitted touching one another caused the two of them to break out in smiles.
At that moment, it felt as if sunlight was radiating out, with the two of them at its center. Everyone present couldn’t help but shut their eyes as they felt their heartbeats speed up for some unknown reason.
They’d never forget this scene for the rest of their lives.
Abner reflexively brought up his camera and snapped a picture of that moment. With how close he was to the camera lens, he could feel their love and longing for one another.
“I probably won’t be able to touch my camera for a good long time after this,” he thought to himself.
None of the staff present were able to describe how the rest of the shoot went about after this; their heads were in the clouds the entire time. On the other hand, Abner’s finger never left the camera’s shutter. In fact, he didn’t even bother to get the couple to pose in any particular manner. To him, every single position they were in was perfect.
Only true, raw, emotion was the most realistic, and it was the most beautiful.
Shen Jingbin and Zhao Chengning’s wedding was set for the 1st of October, which was also the nation’s national day.
It not raining on a national day was almost akin to a rule written in stone. Today’s weather was no different from all the other national days. The downcast weather, which persisted for the past few days, had finally dissipated, leaving clear blue skies for miles on end.
When B City’s bell tower was struck, Shen Jingbin made her appearance. She wore a wedding dress that was specially designed by her brother for her. She held a bouquet in one hand, while the other held onto her father’s hand as he led her down the aisle towards a man wearing a white tuxedo who was standing as straight as a pole.
At the urging of the master of ceremony, her father handed over her to the other man.
He wrapped his hand around hers, never to let go ever again.
“Zhao Chengning, do you agree to take Shen Jingbin as your lawfully wedded wife, to love her in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, for now, and forever?”
“Shen Jingbin, do you agree to take Zhao Chengning as your lawfully wedded husband, to love him in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, for now, and forever?”
“In that case, by the power vested in me, I now pronounce you man and wife. You may now kiss the bride.”
Zhao Chengning gazed at the woman wearing a white wedding dress in front of him and felt his spirit, that had unwittingly wandered off for so long finally return to him. Every inch of his face was suffused with joy as he slowly lowered his head and brought it closer to his new wife. As he drew nearer, he saw his own face reflected in his wife’s eyes, a face that looked blessedly content.
When their lips finally brushed against one another, he felt his lips go numb, and he felt the sensation spread throughout the rest of his body. He could smell the faint fragrance wafting off her body, and he felt her body faintly tremble.
He took in every single one of her reactions with unblinking eyes.
Fireworks exploded over the couple’s heads. Beneath them, Zhao Chengning heard periodic sobbing. These weren’t cries of sorrow, but rather tears of joy; tears of joy for himself, for Shen Jingbin, for the two of them.
Following that was applause that grew more intense with every passing moment.
He slowly parted with Shen Jingbin’s lips and mouthed, “I’ve been waiting forever for you. I love you.”
His wife’s only reply was a face filled with tears of joy.
