Jack & BelindaA Star is Born: Jack & Belinda Edition eps. II

A Star is Born: Jack & Belinda Edition eps III

Her heart nearly imploded when her mother whispered in her ear. Belinda continued looking directly into the mirror and although she had never looked more beautiful in her life, all she wanted to do was cry.  Adorned in a beautifully handmade white wedding dress – the color was not only of tradition, but Belinda Michelle Jackson had been untouched. Her mother stood stoic, from the old school, the man that her daughter was to marry, would build her a safe life, and that was important to her. But Mrs. Frances Jackson knew safe was not the choice her daughter would have ever made, if not forced by her father.

When her mother’s hand touched her back, the soothing warmth of a mother’s love could not control the avalanche of emotions of marrying man she did not love, and living a life she did not want. And the news of its arrival, the letter she had long been waiting for; her audition tape had been accepted and she was a finalist for the grand production of A Star is Born, more dreams crushed and destroyed. But when her mother whispered again in her ear “Run.” Belinda started running in her flowing wedding gown. She ran out of the chapel and down the lane, with her father screaming “Belinda, you get  back here!” But all she heard was her mother’s voice. “Run Belinda. Run and make me proud!” Belinda knew it was coming, but all she could do was run. When her mother turned to face her father, Belinda could almost feel the solid blow that staggered her mother backwards… but did not knock her out. to be ccontinued
