done. How does it look?" Mimi said, giving Sora a mirror, so
she could look at herself. Sora looked at her once
just-past-shoulder-length orange hair that was now curled around
her head. Mimi had brought her locks up into a twist that rest
against the back of her head, while leaving a few whisps hanging
down at the front. There were small, blue flowers imbedded in a
crown shape around her head, that matched perfectly. She
inspected her face as well, to make sure everything was alright.
Hey eyelids were coated in a light purple colouring, while she
wore a simple pink gloss that made her lips full.
it's perfect! I love it! Thank you!" Sora said, hugging her
problem, Sora. Your hair is a lot of fun to work with," Mimi
said. "So, is everything ready?"
think so," Sora said, looking down toward her dress. She
walked over to the full-body mirror near the corner, and looked
at herself in full. She wore an ancle-length plain white dress,
that was held up by two thin spaghetti straps at the top. She
spun around once quickly, causing the dress to fly out in all
directions. Suddenly, there was a knock at the door. Both Sora
and Mimi turned their heads to the door, to see Ms. Takenouchi
standing there. The older woman gasped.
You look so beautiful!" she said, walked towards Sora. She
held her arms out, and took her daughter into a hug. She pulled
away again, and smiled. "I can't believe it. My little girl
finally getting married. That's amazing!"
too sweet, mama. And yeah, I can hardly believe it either! Wow,
Mama!" Sora looked to the door, and saw Kitsune running
sweetie. How are you doing?"
Mama, are you almost ready? Daddy said it's time to go!"
did, did he?" Sora said, looking at her hand. The small,
silver and peridot ring was still there, the same one he had
given her so many years ago. "Wow, I just can't believe I
still have this! I usually lose things like this over a 9-year
time span. Oh, well. Never-the-less, I still have to get going!
'Bye everyone! I'll see you out there!" Sora said, taking
Kitsune's hand, and leaving the room.
Sora!" Mimi called after her. "Hey, we'd better go take
our seats, Ms. Takenouchi. Ready to go?"
"I am sure
am, Mimi. Hey, thanks for being such a great help with all of
this. Sora and I really appreciate it."
"Oh, it was
no problem, Ms. Takenouchi. Anything for a friend!" Mimi
said, and the two of them smiled at each other.
outside to where the ceremony was held. She waited down at the
end of the rows, and saw everyone there. All of her friends from
back when she was a teenager were there, as well as Matt's
family, and some of her and Matt's newer friends.
It was a
beautiful ceremony. The sun was shining, and it was a beautiful
spring day. Kitsune had been the flower girl, Mimi, the Maid of
Honour, and Tai, the Best Man. It was a short wedding, but still
perfect. Both Sora and Matt's dream come true.
Yamato Ishida, take Sora Takenouchi to be your lawfully wedded

you, Sora Takenouchi, take Yamato Ishida to be your lawfully
do," Sora said, smiling widely.
"Then I now
pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride," he
told them. Sora stepped forward, and put her mouth to Matt's.
They pressed their lips together, and shared a beautiful kiss.
They pulled away a second later, and turned to face the crowd,
who cheered. Matt and Sora walked down the aisle slowly, holding
hands, and smiling brightly at one another.
do love you, Sora," Matt said to her quietly.
"I love you
more, Matt," Sora said, smiling.

was finished, everyone had moved to the patio to have a
reception. It was again small, but enjoyable. Matt and Sora sat
beside each other at a table, accompanied by Tai, TK, and Kari.
Everyone had been talking about everything. Old times, now, and
more. Tai brought one hand up and scratched his head, as if
This is freaky. So I'm like...related to you now," Tai said.

back at her, just as sweetly. Suddenly, a small voice came out of
Uncle Tai!" Tai looked over to see a little girl running
toward him. He smiled brightly. The little girl came to a stop
right in front of the chair he sat on.
Kitsune. How's my favourite little girl?" he asked the girl.
She smiled brightly at him.
come here! I wanna show you something I just found! Come on,
Uncle Tai! It's really cool!" Kitsune pleaded.

answer for a second, and didn't hesitate when she found one.

she said again. Tai looked over at Sora, who mouthed the words,
'Just go ahead.' Tai nodded, then turned back to his niece.
where is this thing?" he said, standing up from his chair.
Kitsune took Tai's hand, and began to lead him away from Sora and
Matt. Sora smiled widely as Kitsune ran off, with Tai in close
tow. She turned her head to Matt, and let out a small laugh.
"She is too
cute for words," Sora told Matt.
have to say that twice! And, you did a good job, Sora."
She's grown up amazingly."
too sweet, Matt. But it wasn't just me. You know you helped,
so," Matt said, timidly. Sora laughed, then turned her head
back to the crowd. She looked happily at her surroundings, and
smiled contently. Matt watched her until he couldn't bear it.
here, you cutie!" he said, and pulled her over to him. She
laughed brightly, and louder than Matt had heard from her in a
long time. She was truly happy, and he was glad for it. He sat
Sora on his lap, then leaned her over his left shoulder. He then
placed a deep, long kiss on her lips. She pulled away after, and
looked deeply into his eyes.

"I love you
