Rita X Raven Fan Fiction
It's been five years since our little adventure. The world's returned to its peaceful state, blah, blah, blah… I'm surprised this ol' Blastia heart of mine's still kickin', but it is. Now lo' and behold, out of the blue, I got me a royal invitation to the wedding of 'Princess Estellise Sidos Heurassein and Sir Yuri Lowell'. Who woulda guessed? Well, that's what got me to the capital city anyway, along with the thought of one certain mage. Gotta admit I sorta developed a 'boyish crush' as Judith likes to refer to it as.
Walking up to the castle gates, the guards part for me. Wonder who the tykes know me as… Schwann of the Schwann Brigade or Raven, one of the heroes who defeated Duke? A puzzle for another day, I suppose…
As I walked towards the throne room, I saw many servants running around attending to what I assume were the details for the wedding. The doors were opened for me, and as I walked into the room I was promptly tackled.
"Raven!" yelled one very excited Estelle as she had rushed me into a hug. Her demeanor hadn't changed one bit, still the same lil' princess we had all come to love.
"Oof! Alright, alright!" I said, holding my hands in mock surrender, "I get it, I've been terribly missed! Ah, to feel so loved…" I cooed, earning myself an assortment of giggles and eye rolls.
"Stand back now; let Ol' Raven here get a good look at ya now darlin',"
Still the same sweet princess…
Her hair had grown since the last time I saw her, reaching almost to her hips now. Eyes, still as bright as ever, were reflecting the shimmering silver and pastel pink of her dress. She'll look like an absolute beauty in her wedding dress… A happy day when she finally marries Yuri, for everyone.
As if on cue, Yuri came to stand beside her.
"Ol' man! So how've you been?" he called sarcastically, "Heard you got yourself kicked out of every bath house north of Nor Harbor," He grinned.
"Same old Yuri, cocky bastard," I muttered under my breath, "And looks like you haven't changed much either, huh Judy?" I added with a lop-sided grin.
"No, not much I suppose," she said with a suppressed laugh, holding her hand up to hide a smile, which was clad with a silver engagement ring.
"Well, I'll be damned," I muttered. It was a beautiful ring, the gem was the same deep blue as Judith's hair, it was a well cut Sapphire. "Who's the lucky bastard!" I called over with a stunned expression. It's not that I was surprised, no not at all actually, but I couldn't think of whom the ring could have come from…
"Well now, former Captain Schwann or should I say Raven, I'm hurt…" Called an oddly familiar voice. I couldn't place it…Turning I saw that belonged to a certain blond soldier.
"Flynn…" My jaw dropped.
"He as surprised as I was, Yuri?" Called another, more familiar, voice.
"Yeah, even more actually…"I heard Yuri mutter as I turned around.
"Well, if it isn't Captain Karol!" I laughed. The kid sure has grown… a couple feet or so taller than before. "And what's this? Kid's got himself a girl too!"
"Oh Ha-Ha! Come on Raven, you remember Nan," He gestured to the girl beside him.
"Charmed…" She stated from behind an icy glare on an other wise impassive face.
Now who does that remind me of…?
"Speaking of Rita!" I blurted out.
Everyone's gaze immediately dropped… What did I say?
"Where's Rita?" I asked, a lump forming in my throat telling me I did not want o hear the answer.
