Chase grinned. “Alright. I’ll call her now.”

Belinda leaned into Ellinor’s side, clinging to her like a child would to their parent, and murmured, “Ellinor, to be honest, I’m actually pretty nervous.”

Ellinor quirked an eyebrow at her and teased, “Nervous about what? It’s not like this is your first rodeo.”

Belinda jerked her head up as a frown creased her forehead. “Ellinor! Are you really bringing up that mess? That was like living through a horror movie!”

Laughing, Ellinor reached out to pinch her cheek. “Exactly! So why the jitters? Surely, it can’t be worse than the last time. Your groom-to-be might not be Mr. Perfect, but he’s miles ahead of the last one. I’ve got your back, so he wouldn’t dare cause a ruckus.”

Ellinor’s jesting seemed to do the trick, and Belinda visibly relaxed.
