"I Went to a Funeral That Was Supposed To Be a Wedding" | CreepyPasta Storytime



I was supposed to be my friend's wedding this weekend and the thing is maybe I was there only I'm pretty sure it was canceled I went to the bride's funeral let me let me back up I knew both Alden and Petra from college they met in intro to Shakespeare sophomore year and well well they hit it off pretty much immediately they're both dramatic types so their relationship was pretty entertaining for all of us you know the types I mean right nothing was ever middle-of-the-road things were always either fantastic or ruined nothing between and I guess not everyone finds that stuff entertaining because a bunch of folks cycled in and out of our circle of friends but I thought that it was like a live-action soap opera I loved it they broke up maybe a half dozen times before graduation always with tears and slammed doors and handwritten notes proclaiming betrayal and they got back together a half-dozen times – and when we were all throwing our caps in the air they had their arms around each other smiling and laughing swearing to spend their lives together after graduation I moved out of town and Petra moved in with Alden I would have thought that moving in together where they were going to be in close proximity all the time would have doomed them maybe not having an audience for their drama I guess it calmed him down though maybe yeah maybe I just heard about it less I don't know we still kept any touch online of course but it's it's not the same as having someone right down the hall in the dorm as far as I could tell they both calm down they're doing great together Alden proposed to Petra on their first anniversary of our college graduation this big display it was super cute he took her to the movies and got them to play the proposal right before the trailers the whole theater clapped Petric ride was great saw the video afterward so I got my wedding invitation a few months later and obviously I was coming back for that Petro was was posting about wedding stuff on Facebook and install the time it seemed like she was going a little bit bridezilla Alden was mainly quiet about it but he'd post pictures occasionally to felt like he was involved or excited about it just that the next to Petra he seemed more reserved making Alden look reserved was there was no small feat but Petra was clearly going above and beyond I was pretty pumped for the wedding myself all did in Petra were the first of my college friends getting married which was cool all by itself it also meant that basically everyone was coming back for their ceremony so it was going to be a little mini reunion honestly even Alden I had only seen in person once its graduation and he and I used to be really close I'd meant to go see people more often by the time slips away you know so I came into town early at the beginning of last week figured I'd catch up with the old hangout see people individually as they came into town and then cap it all off with a wedding on Sunday obviously I went to go see Alden and Petra first I knew they wouldn't have a lot of time but I wanted to say hi I was shocked by how Petra looks she was she was always staying in college but like graceful willowy Finn now she looked drawn even frail I gave her a big hug I tried to hide my initial reaction but she clearly noticed so I don't so I don't look good huh she asked Riley no I mean you looked great are you doing okay yeah I'll be fine just came down with something in a couple weeks ago I'm mainly just ticked off I'm gonna be sick at my wedding that'll make up you'll be fine I told her she smiled and even through the illness she looked radiant not worried at all nothing is taking this day away from me it was Monday on Wednesday I got the news that Petra had been rushed to the hospital she'd collapsed at dinner they said that she'd been coughing up blood she was she was unresponsive when I got her to the hospital she hung in there for most of a dang getting steadily weaker I stopped by in the middle of the day to see her Alden was there holding her limp hand he looked like like he'd been there all night how's she doing I asked not good they don't know what's wrong nothing's working I think I'm afraid his voice broke and he clutched her hand for a moment composing himself I'm afraid I'm gonna lose her I stayed for a bit trying to think of helpful things to say or at least be a friendly presence for Alden then one of the Machine started beeping and a nurse came in to fuss with her so I slipped out I thought about catching an early flight home the wedding was clearly not gonna happen Petra Petra died Thursday night Alden was in shock I came to the house as soon as I heard he was there I'm surrounded by family he's staring eyes his pale face he looked he looked almost as bad as Petra had hey you need me to do anything for you I asked him let people know I call things off no no don't don't call anything off but people know definitely but I I hope they'll come anyway they'll still be celebrating your life this weekend no not not how I wanted but they should they should still be here for her most people did still come tickets were already bought after all plans were set they held they held the funeral in the wedding hall since they'd already rented it it was much more somber of an affair than we'd all been expecting the previous week but it would it was still beautiful and it's only a lot of people sharing nice memories of Petra Alden gave a really touching speech everyone's heart broke for him the timing of it all just added to the tragedy of the situation we buried Petra after the ceremony a few of us went out for quiet drinks just to reminisce for a bit and it wasn't much else to say I had a red-eye flight back home after the bar I caught a ride to the airport hopped on my plane settled in for a trip home suddenly I wasn't on the plane anymore I was back in the wedding hall only was actually decorated for a wedding this time Alvin was standing at the altar looking fantastic in his tuxedo his groomsmen were lined up behind him they were all smiling but Alden looks slightly confused but he wasn't quite sure how he'd gotten there the bride's processional started playing and I rose to my feet along with the rest of the guests turning to the back of the hall Petra came walking down the aisle one stately step at a time her gown trailed behind her cascading down like a snowfall her veil covered her face but I could see her eyes fixed straight ahead locked on Alden I heard a strangling Yelp from behind me and half turned to see who made it at the altar Alden was struggling in the grip of his two groomsmen let me go he hissed he was whisper card through the vaulted hall and more heads turned to look guys come on let me go not a chance Alden came an answering whisper I turned back Petro is much closer to me now and I could see I could see details did I have you before the flowers in her bouquet were wilted and drooping the hands that helped them were skeletal thin in places Petra skin was torn revealing desiccated muscle in the occasional glimpse of bone beneath her veil her face was rotted decaying but her eyes burned bright pinning Alden with her gaze you promised me this Alton the whisper carried over the music and she took a measured step forward he proposed to me another step her bridesmaids moved in time smiles locked on their faces their eyes wide with terror Hewlett people Eve step I tried to move and I couldn't all I could do was watch you poisoned me Alden step she was at the foot of the altar now just one small step separating her from Alden he stared in fear still writhing against the iron grip of his groomsmen you killed me step she was in front of him Alden opened his mouth to say something but she placed one thin finger against his lips nothing's taking this day away from me she took the back of his head in one hand with the other she slowly reached up and lifted away her veil I woke with Alden scream echoing in my head apparently I screamed as well as my seatmate was staring at me and a flight attendant was rushing over I apologized I told them I was fine we laughed it off that was Monday I've been trying to reach Alden since then no one's heard from him and yeah maybe maybe he's taking some time alone which would be pretty reasonable except I heard that Petra's parents are having her exhumed for a tox screening and everyone seems a little more worried about him than you'd expect I kind of just want to ask if anyone else had the same dream or if everyone else did but then again I don't know that I really want the answer hey there kids it's me mr. creepypasta and I just wanted to take a quick second to say thank you for listening to tonight's video and quite
