One Another

{Normal POV}

(Archian City-Archia Palace)

The drive from the elementary school had been about an hour, and the two newlyweds arrived at the hotel around 9:45 pm. Right away, Hayden parked the car closest to the main entrance and shut the vehicle off.

"Well, here we are, Mrs. Haddock. Ready to start our two-week vacation?" Hayden inquired with a smile.

"I am," Ashley replied with a nod. Hayden got out of the car first, then helped Ashley out. Afterward, the two grabbed one smaller suitcase from the trunk as it was just an overnight bag for them. Inside there was a set of night clothes, a change for tomorrow morning, then a small bag each for their personal care items. Hayden locked up the car, and made sure to alarm it before they strolled into the main entrance of Archia Palace. Astrid was in awe of the grand hotel while Hayden had to lead her over to the desk so she didn't get lost in the excitement.

"Welcome to Archia Palace!" the male greeted. Hayden read his name tag as; Cody.

"Thank you," Ashley responded, still admiring everything around her.

"What can I do for you two this evening?" Cody inquired.

"There should be a top floor suite on reserve under the name Haddock," Hayden stated to the man. Cody began typing a few things into the computer.

"Hayden Haddock?" Cody asked.

"That's me," Hayden informed gently with a nod.

"Yes, I have you right here, Mr. Haddock. A suite on the hundredth floor for one night," Cody smiled softly as he swiped a keycard, then handed it to Hayden in an envelope. "Your room is number one hundred and ten on the left. Check out is at 11 am, and if you should require anything at all, please don't hesitate to call down. Please enjoy your stay!" he added.

"Thank you, my friend," Hayden lifted the bag over his shoulder, then wrapped an arm around Ashley's waist while leading her to the elevator. The doors opened to let them in, and then Ashley pressed the 100 button as the door closed and the object began to move upward.

"Out of curiosity, Hayden; how long have you had this room on reserve?" Ashley wondered.

"Would you believe me if I said since you we picked the wedding date?" Hayden chuckled as she blinked.

"You've had this on reserve since then?" Ashley asked.

"I wanted to make sure we'd get the room," Hayden replied with a small laugh. "I know how much it meant to you to have all this for when you got married, so I was determined to make it perfect, and your dream become a reality,"

"I've got to be the luckiest girl around to have you," Ashley leaned into him.

"Not half as lucky as I am to have you," Hayden said before planting a kiss on her forehead. Finally, they reached the top and the door opened. Hayden held Ashley's hand as they walked to their room, then he handed her the keycard so she could have the honors. Ashley slid the card, then the door opened to let them inside. Ashley flipped on the lights as her eyes lit up at the sight of everything. Hayden set the bag on the dresser while he looked back to see Ashley's shocked but happy face. The room had everything Hayden mentioned, but it was still surreal to take in and see with her own two eyes.

"You haven't even seen the view yet," Hayden took her hand while leading her over to the window. Hayden opened the curtains to reveal the stunning view.

"It's…breathtaking," Ashley whispered while staring in adoration of everything around her. The two of them had a terrific picture of the moon above them, and Ashley couldn't wait to see the sunrise tomorrow morning if they were awake in time. "Thank you, Hayden. Not just for this, but for it all since we've met. You went above and beyond being my best friend, and now as my husband. I don't think I can ever repay you,"

Hayden turned Ashley so she was facing him and his left hand held hers up to place a kiss on the engagement and wedding bands there. Hayden smiled while staring into her shimmering blue eyes. "You binding your life to mine for the rest of our days is payment enough, Ashley. All I've ever wanted since meeting you is to be by your side forever, and you gave me that by saying yes to marrying me. Now all I want to do is love you, and make sure you know, see, and feel it every single day from this night on,"

Ashley could have cried, and Hayden saw the tears beginning to form as he leaned in and kissed her passionately. Ashley melted into the action, her knees going weak as Hayden held her steady in his arms. The kiss broke as Ashley stared into his eyes, stroking his cheek a little. "Do it," Ashley invited.

"Are you sure?" Hayden asked her. "We can still wait if you're not,"

"We've waited long enough, and I've never been surer of anything else in my life, Hayden. I want you as much as you want me; so let's do it. Make love to me," Ashley said softly. Hayden smiled as he sat her down on the edge of the bed, then went to the door to put out a Do Not Disturb sign on the outside handle. Afterward, Hayden locked the door, and dimmed the room lights. Hayden moved towards the window and drew the shades and drapes closed. The room was dark, but there was enough light for Hayden and Ashley to see one another. Ashley stood up to meet Hayden as he walked in front of her.

"I love you, Asty," Hayden said while leaning in to kiss her; his hand cupping her cheek lovingly.

"I love you too, Hic," Ashley replied. After that; Hayden captured her lips with his own in a passionate, sincere, loving kiss.

[HaydenXAshley Lemon]

The one kiss started it all. From the moment their lips met; their bodies were set on fire with an intense need for the other. Hayden's hands moved to rest on Ashley's hips while her arms locked around his neck as the kissing continued. Ashley's hands worked Hayden's tie to loosen, then take it off him. After that, Ashley snaked her hands under his coat to glide it off his shoulders so it would fall to the floor with the tie. Hayden's fingers carefully worked the hook on Ashley's dress to undo it, then pull the zipper down to loosen it on her figure. As the gown slipped off, Hayden realized she was only wearing her underwear.

"The dress had a built-in bra," Ashley informed with a blush.

"Makes it easier for me," Hayden chuckled a bit as he kissed her again. Ashley unbuttoned Hayden's shirt, then took it off of him. Next, Ashley unclipped the belt, unsnapped the pants, pulled the zipper, and let the pants fall down as Hayden stepped out of them so they were out of the way. Hayden laid Ashley down on the king-sized bed gently and crawled over her slow. Hayden's kisses trailed along her jawline, nipping at a sweet spot on her neck that he'd found one time during their sessions to help Ashley past her fear. Ashley moaned softly, enjoying the feeling. Hayden moved his hands to massage he breasts, which elicited a louder moan for him to continue his actions.

The love-making continued for another hour where they engaged in foreplay; all the things they worked on through the last year to prepare for tonight. Hayden started slowly as they had so many times in the past with pleasuring Ashley by sucking and licking her nipples, then moving down more to remove her underwear and eat her out. Hayden learned that Ashley loved how it felt and he was happy to do it as long as she was enjoying herself. That was his goal tonight, show her what it was like to be loved, so she could feel it. Hayden made Ashley orgasm once already by fingering and eating her out at the same time; it drove her mad with pleasure. Afterward, Ashley insisted on getting Hayden to cum too, so he let her give him a hand and blowjob. However, now, the time had come to do the thing they hadn't practiced because they said they wouldn't until tonight. Hayden and Ashley were both naked on the bed, lights still dimmed while they gave were staring into know another's eyes. Hayden was laying over Ashley; his hands on either side of her sides.

"Take me, Hayden," Ashley invited.

"I'll be gentle, okay? Just keep your eyes on me," Hayden told her as she nodded and they both took a deep breath. Ashley spread her legs a bit as Hayden balanced on the one arm while holding his length in the other to guide himself within his wife's core. Hayden knew he likely wouldn't hurt her considering she wasn't a virgin anymore, but still; he didn't want to set her off on a night like this. Even so, he was nervous because he'd never had sex before; this was entirely new for him to do. Hayden pushed his erect length into Ashley's entrance slow, keeping his eyes locked on hers the whole time. Once he was in fully, Hayden stopped to give her a few moments to adjust. "Are you alright?"

"Y-Yeah, it just stings a little," Ashley admitted.

"Let me know when to move," Hayden said lovingly. After more seconds passed, Ashley nodded for him to go ahead. Hayden began to rock his hips back and forth, eliciting minor moans from his wife as her hands rested on his arms. Hayden knew to thrust slowly so he wouldn't hurt her, or bring forward any flashbacks. For Ashley, it wasn't a new feeling, but it was different. Hayden was loving, and gentle; she loved it. This felt good for her, and she didn't want it to stop.

"Oh, Hayden; it feels amazing!" Ashley moaned out.

"Gods," Hayden groaned in pleasure.

"Mm! Faster, please," Ashley asked. Hayden adjusted himself a bit to move at a quicker speed, and subsequently ended up going harder but Ashley didn't seem to mind because her moaning got louder, and breathing more erratic. Hayden and Ashley stayed in the one position because it had been practiced that way; with their clothes on, of course. The newly married couple consummated their marriage tonight, but they had a lifetime together of times they could make love and explore other positions to test out. For tonight, Hayden and Ashley only wanted the one where they could look at one another in the eyes to enjoy it together. The two of them went at it until about 1 am; taking breaks to draw it out longer, but alas, all good things came to an end at some point. Plus, tomorrow they were starting their trip to the mainland, so they would need their sleep.

"Ash, I'm…gonna cum," Hayden revealed through the rough panting of trying to control his breathing. There was a sheen of sweat on both of them, but a slight chill in the room as well.

"Ah, m-me too, Hayden," Ashley moaned, panting as well as she locked her legs around his waist.

"Do it, baby. Cum for me," Hayden urged. Ashley wrapped her arms around his neck, drawing him closer to her for a kiss as her walls tightened around his length. Hayden closed his eyes as he couldn't hold back any longer. Ashley held on to him tightly as she released, then Hayden did the same; both of them cumming at the same time.

"Hayden!"

"Ashley!"

[End Lemon]

At that moment; there was nothing but pleasured bliss for Hayden and Ashley Haddock. The newlyweds laid there in the bed, embraced in one another's arms while they rode out their orgasms.

"I love you," Ashley panted softly.

"I love you, too," Hayden replied with a smile as they kissed. Hayden pulled out of her core, and cleaned himself off as Ashley did the same. A few seconds later, Ashley used the bathroom, and Hayden after her. The lovebirds decided to change into their night clothes because it was a bit cold being September and all. The two turned off the lights entirely as Hayden set his alarm for 6:30 am; the time the sun would rise. Hayden laid down under the covers first before Ashley joined him and cuddled up.

"That was amazing," Ashley said gently, and with a yawn to follow.

"No. It was perfect," Hayden replied as he kissed her forehead. "Rest, Milady. Tomorrow we're on a two-week vacation; just the two of us," he added.

"As it's always been," Ashley began to fall asleep.

"As it always will be," Hayden held her tightly in his arms as he began to drift off to sleep knowing that tonight, he married his best friend and no matter what happened in their lives; they would be together as they had from the start. From then until forever; Hayden and Ashley had one another.

~Author's Note; And so ends How To Heal A Broken Spirit. This story was meant to be a change up from the normal of bad things happening to Hiccup and everyone working together to help him. And I kept the Hicstrid pairing too. And just so it's clear, I stopped it here so that way I could write a sequel later on at another time. Not sure when, but one day. In the meantime, I do hope you'll continue to enjoy the other stories I put out. First, I must finish Change Of Heart, so be on the lookout for those updates! Until next time! -Nightstar.
