Anita walked through the rose garden of the castle. There were only two days left to make the last preparations done. Those were the tiny things, so they wouldn't have to rush on the last days. She sat down at a bench. There were only two days left to be Ms. Knight. Within four days, she would wake up as Mrs. Volt.
"Hey, can I sit down next to you?" sounded and Anita smiled.
"Of course. " she said and Mildred sat down next to Anita.
"Just two days left." Mildred said and Anita nodded.
"I just can't wait for it." she said with a smile. She looked to Mildred. "How did you find out that my father was a prince?"
"Well, he told us when he got a letter from home. His father had a serious illness and Arthur needed to find a suitable wife to rule the kingdom with. He went straight back home to learn the latest things of being king and six months later was the ball for finding a suitable wife."
"And mum knew about that?"
"She was the one who told me about the ball. She told our commander that she wanted to quit and she started to pack her bags. When I went to her place, she told me about the ball and she was going to Knightendale to be with Arthur. I knew she loved him enough to do everything for him and she still does. So six months later we got an invitation of them and we went straight to Knightendale."
"Here you are." sounded suddenly and Victor walked to them. "Hi, mum."
"Hi, Victor, what's the rush?" Mildred asked.
"Anita and I need to find a nice picture for the figurines to place on the wedding cake."
"I totally forgot." Anita said and she stood up. "I'm sorry, Mildred."
"Don't be, your wedding is more important right now." Mildred said with a smile and Anita and Victor walked away.
A little bit later, Victor and Anita walked into the bakery. Although they wore casual clothes, the people in the store stopped talking and they looked to Victor and Anita. And suddenly, they start to congratulate them.
"I'll help my customers first, sir, milady." the baker said with a smile.
"It's alright." Victor said and Anita nodded.
"You can wait in the back of the store." the baker said and Victor and Anita walked to the back of the store.
"So, what kind of pictures did you take with you?" Anita asked when they sat down.
"The press pictures." Victor said with a smile and he placed the pictures on the table.
Anita smiled. They had to do some interviews, a news special and a big press conference. She didn't mind, it was nice to be there and to do those things. And Victor didn't mind it as well and that was a good sign, because this wouldn't be the only time that they had to do interviews.
"Well, did you find something?" Victor asked and Anita smiled.
"I think this one is nice." she said and she pointed to a picture. It was made after the press conference in the city hall, Victor and Anita both wore really royal clothes; Victor in suit and Anita in a beautiful, purple dress. It was the plan to walk down the stairs of the city hall on their own, but Victor lifted Anita and he carried her down the stairs. This picture was in every newspaper and they called Victor 'The second king Arthur'.
Victor laughed a little bit. "That one is really nice." he said with a smile. "But, I was thinking about something slightly different."
"Like?" Anita asked.
"Stand up, I'll show you." Victor said when he saw the baker with his daughter coming in. Anita stood up, Victor lifted her up and gave her a kiss on her lips.
The baker smiled. "I think it's a wonderful idea." he said. "I'll start after the orders of today are finished. It'll be finished a day before your marriage."
Anita felt that her cheeks turned a little bit red and Victor placed her back on the ground and gave her a kiss on her cheek.
The daughter smiled. "You two really love each other, right?"
"Anny, please." the baker said.
Anita smiled. "It's alright." she said. "And yes, we really love each other."
Anny looked to Victor "Did you mind it when they called you the second king Arthur?"'she asked.
Victor smiled. "Why should I? It was a great honor to be called like that, I mean, Arthur is a great king."
The baker smiled. "Everyone adores him and the queen. They both did a wonderful job with the country."
Anny looked to Victor and Anita. "I think that you two really get the cutest babies ever." she said.
Victor chuckled and he looked to Anita. She looked a little bit worried. "Thank you." Victor said and he looked to the baker. "I think it's time for us to go, because we have a lot to do."
The baker nodded. "Of course." he said and they said goodbye.
"Anita, is there anything wrong?"
Victor and Anita sat in the car, on their way back home. Anita didn't say a thing after they left the bakery.
"No, everything is fine."
"Anita, I can see it that there is something wrong. Would you tell it to me?"
Anita sighed. "I'm just…Do you think I'll be a good mother?"
Victor looked to her. He didn't expect this question before Anita would be pregnant. "You aren't pregnant, are you?"
"No! Why do you think that?"
"Why do you think you won't be a good mother?"
Anita looked to Victor. "I dunno, I just think I won't be a good mother."
Victor sighed. "You're right." he said and Anita looked to him in a shock. "I know that you'll be a wonderful mother." Victor parked the car near the castle and they both stepped out of the car. "Anita, why do you think you wouldn't be a good mother?"
"I was always terrible with kids and when we'll have one of our own, it would be a nightmare. I would do everything wrong." Anita said while they walked into the castle.
"Trust me, Anita. You wouldn't." Victor said. They walked to the tearoom and they sat down on the couch. "We're together in it and I know that you'll be the most wonderful mother a kid would ever dream of."
Anita placed her head on Victor's shoulder. "Are you sure?" she asked and Victor nodded while he placed his arm around her.
"Hundred percent." Victor whispered in her ear and he gave her a kiss on her forehead. "So stop worrying about it."
"I promise." Anita said with a smile.
It was the day before the wedding of Victor and Anita and Anita was calling with the florist to be sure the flowers were at the right places. "Thank you." Anita said and she hung up.
"Tough day?" Arthur said when Anita sat down in the tearoom.
"I'll be glad when this is all over." Anita sighed when she pour out some tea. "Although I can't wait to tomorrow."
Arthur smiled. The wedding day is supposed to be the most wonderful day in your life. It was for him and Mary Lynn and he knew it would be for Victor and Anita, but the arrangements were horrible to do. "It's the last day today." he said.
"It was the last day. Victor assured me that everything is done." she sighed. "Tomorrow I'll be Mrs. Volt."
"I thought you would be happy about that." sounded and Victor sat down next to her.
Anita chuckled. "I am happy, I just can't wait to be called like that."
Victor gave her a kiss on her lips. "We could already start with it, Mrs. Volt. And besides, we have guests."
"Guests?" Anita gave Victor a strange look. "Who are they?"
"Us." sounded and Ray and Kowalski walked into the room.
"How great to see you again." Anita said with a smile and she gave them a hug before she looked to Victor. "Did you know that they would come to here?"
"Today?" Victor asked and Anita nodded. "No, I just bumped into them when I was going to you."
Anita smiled. "Ray, Kowalski, this is my father; Arthur Knight. Dad, these are our best friends; Special Agent Ray and Agent Kowalski."
"Nice to meet you, sir." Kowalski and Ray said while they gave Arthur a hand.
"It's nice to meet you too." Arthur said.
"It's really wonderful that you two are going to get married." Kowalski said while she sat down in a chair.
Ray smiled. "Although we all knew it would happen once."
"Was it that obvious?" Anita and Victor asked at the same time and Kowalski and Ray nodded.
Arthur laughed. "Apparently knew everyone about it, except the two of you."
"And now we're going to get married." Victor and Anita said at the same time and the others started to laugh while Victor and Anita gave each other a kiss on their lips.
The next day was Anita in her room, together with her mother and her almost mother-in-law. She was wearing a beautiful white dress. All over the dress were lavender roses embroidered and Anita wore a white veil with lavender roses in it.
"Well, how do I look?" Anita asked, a little bit nervous.
"You look wonderful, dear." Mildred said with a smile.
"If he didn't love you for always, he would do it when he saw you coming down the aisle." Mary Lynn smiled. "And maybe now, he would even love you more."
"If that's possible." Anita said.
"Still, you're missing something." Mildred said.
"What?" Anita looked to her dress. James would bring her bouquet and she would put on her jewelry right now.
"There is a phrase;" Mary Lynn started. "Something old, something new…"
"Something borrowed, something blue." Mildred said.
"I thought that was nonsense." Anita said, a little bit confused.
"It isn't." Mary Lynn said. "You have the something new, your dress."
"And you can borrow my silver earrings that I got from Lionel for our marriage." Mildred said and she gave Anita the silver, star-shaped earrings.
"The something old you get is my necklace." Mary Lynn said and she removed her necklace. It was a silver one, with two pearls who separated the three diamonds. "The diamonds stands for family, the pearls for friendship. I got this one from Lionel and Mildred and now I'm giving it to you."
"Thank you." Anita whispered. "But, what's the something blue?"
Mildred and Mary Lynn smiled and Mary Lynn grabbed a little box. "This is the something blue." she said and she gave it to Anita.
Anita opened the box and closed it immediately when she saw what was in it. "There is no way I'm going to wear that!"
Mary Lynn and Mildred laughed. "It's only once in a lifetime." Mildred said and she opened the box again. "And it's blue." she grabbed the garter out of the box.
Anita sighed. "Alright." she said and she placed it around her leg.
A soft knock sounded and James walked into the room. He was carrying a beautiful bouquet. It had lavender and white roses in it and Anita just adored it.
"It's beautiful." she said.
"May I say that you look beautiful, Anita?" James said and Anita smiled.
"Thank you, James." she said. "I presume Victor is already at the church?"
James nodded. "And it's time for you to go to the church now."
Anita smiled. "I'm coming." she said and she looked to Mary Lynn and Mildred. "Thank you, for everything."
"No problem, sweetheart." Mary Lynn said and she gave Anita a hug.
Meanwhile was Victor standing at the altar. He couldn't wait to see Anita in her wedding dress. He just knew that she would look wonderful in it, no matter what color it would have.
Suddenly, the music started to play and everybody turned around to see Anita and Arthur walk down the aisle. Victor dreamt of this view for such a long time and now it was for real. He just couldn't take his eyes off her. Arthur stood still, a few passes away from Victor and he gave Anita a hug. Anita smiled and she walked to Victor.
Moments went by and Victor and Anita had to rise up for the 'I Do' part.
"Do you Victor Thomas Jefferson Volt, take this woman whose hand you now hold, to be your true and wedded wife; and do you solemnly promise to love, cherish, honor and protect her: to forsake all others for her sake; to cleave unto her, and her only, until death shall part you?" the vicar asked and he looked to Victor.
"I do." Victor said while he looked to Anita and gave her a big smile.
"Do you Anita Guinevere Knight, take this man whose hand you now hold, to be your true and wedded husband; and do you solemnly promise to love, cherish, honor and protect him: to forsake all others for his sake; to cleave unto him, and him only, until death shall part you?" the vicar asked and he looked to Anita.
"I do." Anita said with a big smile while she looked to Victor.
"Then will you please, as an expression that your hearts are joined together in love, now please join your hands," the vicar directed.
Anita and Victor looked to each other while they gave their right hands to each other.
"The rings." the vicar said and James walked to them with the rings on a beautiful red pillow. Victor took Anita's ring and placed it around her right ring finger. After that, Anita took Victor's ring and placed it around his right ring finger.
After all of this was said and done, the vicar just had to say one last thing. "Then, by the power vested in me, I pronounce you man and wife. You may now kiss the bride." he said while he looked to Victor.
Victor smiled and he looked to Anita. "I would never let you go." he whispered and he gave her the most passionate kiss Anita ever felt.
The vicar smiled. He was honored to marry this wonderful couple. "Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Mr. and Mrs. Volt. The prince and princess of Knightendale."
"This was it. Our marriage." Victor said while he was searching through his pockets. He and Anita were standing in front of the guest house of Arthur and Mary Lynn. They would spend their honeymoon there, in the 'backyard' of the castle and here in Knightendale. It was late at night and they spent hours at the reception. It was very nice to do it, but again? If it wasn't that exhausting.
"It was great." Anita sighed. Victor placed the key into the lock and he opened the door. Just when Anita wanted to walk into the house, Victor lifted her up and carried her through the door opening. Anita laughed a little bit and Victor placed her on the couch.
"It was a wonderful evening." Victor whispered in her ear and he grabbed the champagne out of the ice bottle. "Champagne?"
"Sure, a glass more or less can't hurt me at this moment." Anita smiled and Victor pour the champagne out for Anita. "It was funny to see Kowalski catch the bouquet. It was a beautiful one, by the way."
"Thank you. I think that she and Ray now need to get married soon." Victor said. He and Anita both knew that Ray and Kowalski loved each other, but they didn't know that.
"Maybe that's the way they thought about us too." Anita said with a smile and Victor chuckled.
"Who knows." he said. "But I know now that I want to spend the rest of my life with you, Anita."
Anita smiled. "I want to spend the rest of my life with you too, Victor." she whispered and Victor gave her a kiss on her lips. "You know, I just can't figure out how the most newlyweds have the strength to have a wonderful wedding night. I'm exhausted."
"Are you sure?" Victor whispered in her ear. "Because I can't wait to be there in the bedroom with you."
Anita felt that her cheeks turned red. Although they were married right now and she was Mrs. Volt, this was something they didn't discuss before.
"Hey, don't be embarrassed." Victor said and he placed his hand on her cheek. "If you don't want to, we won't do it."
Anita smiled. "I'm complaining about nothing." she said. "Race to the bedroom?"
Victor laughed. "It's alright with me." he said and Anita ran off to the bedroom, followed by Victor.
I hope you enjoyed it!
