Three Things Challenge 516

Pensitivity101 Rules:

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.

I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.

Your three words are:

GRANTED
CLOTHES
JEALOUSY

“Oh Mr. Zimmerman, aside from the death of my mother, my wishes have been granted. I will miss her dearly and am very sorry she will not be able to be at my wedding, but I knew deep down, she wouldn’t have been there anyhow. She couldn’t remember most of what I told her and some days she even forgot I was getting married and at the end there, well some days she simply didn’t know who I was. It was heartbreaking to watch.”

Thomas said, “There were many days Ginny arrived at my house crying after spending time with her mother. She wanted her opinion on things about the wedding, but her mother wasn’t able to even remember she was getting married. I can only imagine how frustrating that must have been. She was trying to see if her mother could help us with the expenses of the wedding, but we couldn’t get a straight answer from her and she never mentioned the trust funds.”

“Well son, there were medical reasons for that and I know before the stroke she talked about Ginny’s wedding a lot. Especially when we were starting to plan ours. I know she didn’t tell you Ginny because she thought you were still too young. No one expected the first stroke and at such a young age. After the stroke, I just canceled all of her plans. I knew she wasn’t going to be up to marrying me. If she would have let me I would have been happy with a justice of the peace wedding ceremony and be content to live with her as her husband to the end, but she was already at a point that she wasn’t considered of sound mind to give her consent to a marriage and I wasn’t going to push it. I just determined to do my best for the both of you as if I had married her. I hope you are not offended Ginny. I didn’t feel it was my place to tell you anything when your mother may say something either way and I didn’t want to confuse her anymore than she was. Some days she didn’t remember me either, but when she was lucid I was here for her. Like I said, all of this was done on those days and with the nurse, who I hired myself, as the witness.”

Ginny was silent for a moment, “This may sound bad, but I was jealous of my friends and their families. Except for one, they all had their mothers and then while we were saving for our wedding and I had to stop buying unnecessary clothes I was in a constant state of jealousy of my friends and their clothes. Does that make me a bad person?”

“Of course not, Ginny,” both Mr. Zimmerman and Thomas said together.

“Honey you are a teenaged girl. That is perfectly normal,” the lawyer said.

“Actually I am 20 now, but close enough I suppose.”

“Darling you will always be perfect to me,” Thomas smiled tenderly at her, putting his arm around her to hug her close to him.
