Don't Own the Titans
To say I was nervous was an understatement. I was sweating buckets and was about ready to pass out. But why should I be nervous? I mean I was marrying the girl of my dreams. At the thought of Raven I immediately calmed. She was beautiful, and I loved her more than anything. She was the love of my life…
"Garth!" The annoying voice of my best man broke me out of my thoughts.
"What Speedy?!" I yelled clearly agitated.
"You ok? I don't think I've ever seen you this nervous." Speedy exclaimed.
"Yeah man, you sure you're ok? You better not be having second thoughts about marrying my little sister or I WILL KILL YOU!" Cyborg threatened from the back of the room.
All the Titans guys were sitting in a back room getting prepared for the wedding. I can say for one time in my life I was glad to hear Speedy interfere.
"All right guys, Garth is nervous enough without you shoving death threats down his throat. Why don't we all leave and give him some room to breathe?"
The other Titans nodded and left, but not without half of them giving me death glares for marrying their "sister".
Speedy sat down beside me and began to talk.
"You know you're my big brother Garth? If you weren't around, I wouldn't have turned out the way I am today. I would still be that completely irresponsible playboy who never learned to feel. You've been there for me throughout everything. I mean I guess Green Arrow was my technical father, but you've really been there for me. Now I want to be here for you, since Aquaman couldn't be."
To say Aqualad was shocked was an understatement. He replied "Thanks. I was kind of nervous without Aquaman here."
Speedy said "Don't be we're all here for you. For both of you. And Raven loves you more than life, you know it."
"Thanks. We better get out of here. Oh, and Roy, I'm proud of you." Aqualad said.
These words meant more than anything to Speedy. Green Arrow had never told him he was proud of him, but the person that really mattered did.
I don't think I can do this. I've never been this scared in my life. I was the last Titan to get married. I wasn't afraid of my father. I wasn't afraid of Slade. I wasn't even afraid truly during Wicked Scary. I wasn't even afraid to marry him, oh no. It was quite the opposite. I was afraid he'd say no. I sat there crying alone in the corner of the room. The bridesmaids, Bumble Bee, Terra, Jinx and Argent had gone out for final touches to the Church. Jinx walked in and immediately ran to my side and sat down.
"Honey, what's wrong?" She moved my hair out of my face and let me cry on her shoulder as she patted my back.
"I'm scared." I whimpered.
"Of what?" She looked me in the eye.
"What if he says no?" I asked.
"Honey, is this about Robin leaving you at the alter five years ago?" She asked.
I nodded and she sighed. I rested my head on her shoulder as we leaned against the wall.
"Let's get one thing straight, Robin was an ass okay? Second thing you and Garth are in love. The way you two act around each other, it's obvious that you're meant to be together. Three, look at yourself, and I mean really look at yourself." She said.
I looked at myself in the mirror. The girl that stood in front of me. She had black hair, waist length, her skin was tan, and she was wearing a white dress up to her knees. She was strong, she was beautiful. She loved, she was loved. She was not the helpless young girl from five years ago, she was a woman. With that out of the way, I brought up another problem.
"I don't want to walk down the aisle alone." Jinx got up and left the room. A few minutes later someone knocked on the door.
"Come in!" I yelled.
Cyborg stepped through, and said "Hey sis. Jinx said you needed to talk to me."
I really loved Jinx! "Hey Cy. Um, I was wondering, you're more than a big brother, you've been like my father throughout the years. So, would you walk me down the aisle?"
Cyborg looked as if he were about to cry, "Of course I will, Rae."
He offered me his arm and we got into line behind the others.
Music began to play, and the doors opened. First, Beast Boy and Terra came out. Second, came Jericho and Kole. Next was Hotspot and Argent. Next the best man and maid of honor, Jinx and Speedy came out. Next were Mas y Menos who were the ring bearers. Next was Melvin, the flower girl. Finally "Here Comes the Bride" began to play. The doors opened and Cyborg stepped out with Raven beside him. Aqualad's breath caught in his throat. She was beautiful. Looking at her immediately wiped away all of his feeling of doubt, he was ready.
Cyborg left Raven at the altar, and I looked at her eyes (she wasn't wearing a veil). I could tell she was afraid.
"Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?"
"I do." I answered without hesitation.
"Doyou take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?"
The moment I had been waiting for.
"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride."
I immediately kissed her and I could only feel one thing right now.
Complete and utter happiness.
Okay, wedding traditions could have been a bit off, so sorry!
