Genelle and Wednell’s wedding occurs with Nick and Clarissa in attendance. Not much happens other than Wendall struggles to break the glass under the towel and Clarissa dreads the reception. The wedding beautiful, large, expensive, and absurd.
Clarissa’s fears are realized when Genelle proves that she only invited Clarissa to the wedding to try and embarrass her. She attempts to get under Nick’s skin by mispronouncing his name but he seems unaffected. His inability to get offended, offends Genelle who loses all leverages and fails in her attempt.
Clarissa and Nick plan to leave after coming clean to her parents who are caught up in the wedding line. Once they break free, Clarissa begins to spill the beans right as Dartmoor crashes her group circle. Dartmoor mentions he’s Clarissa’s new boss, and he picks up on her parent’s confusion. Just as Clarissa tries to explain, a server states the bride and groom want Dartmoor in attendance for the first dance. Janet blows Clarissa off, despite Marshall’s attempt to listen. Nick points out that Dartmoor has the hots for Clarissa and her attempt at coming clean has failed. Just as she’s ready to leave, Nick uses the clause in their unofficial wedding date contract and pulls Clarissa on the dance floor.
Chapter twenty-eight was full of information and Nick has made his move! I half expected Sam to show up when all was going to hell for Clarissa.
