An: Last chappie! Ok, sorry for the skip in time too, but you all get a happy ending! Love all of you! God Bless!


Ch. 24 – Dreams Come True

Relena beamed as she watched her best friend come toward her. She looks so beautiful.. Then she glanced over at Duo, and she could swear she saw tears in his eyes. And was Heero…smiling? You do have a heart, Heero Yuy, you just don't show it in public very often.

The sound of the wedding march played in Hilde's ears as she marched in time with it on Quatra's arm. He's really the sweetest friend a girl could have, she smiled to herself. Her dress was simple but elegant strapless white dress with a sweetheart neckline. It had glass buttons down the back and silver embroidery and beading around the hem. Until finally she reached the front and let go of Quatra and took Duo's hands with a nervous but all too excited smile.

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today, in the sight of God and all these witnesses to join these two people in holy matrimony. It is truly a blessed miracle each time two people join in union, and each of us here today are blessed by the two of you. Who gives this bride away?"

"Her friends do." Quatra answered, smiling, and sat down on the front pew. The priest smiled back at him, then looked at the happy couple. "Let's begin with your vows. Now, Duo, repeat after me. I Duo."

"I, Duo"

"Take you, Hilde, "

"Take you, Hilde," He grinned.

"To be my lawfully wedded wife,"

"To be my lawfully wedded wife"

"My constant friend,"

"My constant friend"

"My faithful partner,"

"My faithful partner"

"And my love"

He winked. "And my love" Hilde blushed.

"From this day forward."

"From this day forward"

"In the presence of God,"

"In the presence of God"

"Our family and friends,"

"Our family and friends"

"I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner:"

"I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner"

"In sickness and in health,"

"In sickness and in health"

"In good times and in bad,"

He nodded. "In good times and in bad"

"And in joy as well as in sorrow."

"And in joy as well as in sorrow"

"I promise to love you unconditionally,"

"I promise to love you unconditionally" The longer he talked, the softer his smile grew, until it changed from his Cheshire grin to more delicate and sincere.

"To support you in your goals,"

"To support you in your goals"

"To honor and respect you,"

"To honor and respect you"

"To laugh with you and cry with you,"

"To laugh with you." He grinned again. "and cry with you" He poked his bottom lip out, and Hilde couldn't help but giggle at him.

"And to cherish you for as long as we both shall live."

His face returned to that oh-so un-Duo look of sincerity. "And to cherish you for as long as we both shall live."

"Now Hilde. I Hilde."

"I, Hilde"

"Take you, Duo,"

"Take you Duo"

"To be my lawfully wedded husband"

She beamed, "To be my lawfully wedded husband."

"My constant friend,"

"My constant friend"

"My faithful partner,"

"My faithful partner"

"And my love"

"And my love"

"From this day forward."

"From this day forward"

"In the presence of God,"

"In the presence of God"

"Our family and friends,"

She glanced back at Relena for a moment. "Our family and friends"

"I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner:"

She squeezed his hands, as her eyes threatened to spill over with tears. "I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner"

"In sickness and in health,"

"In sickness and in health"

"In good times and in bad,"

"In good times and in bad"

"And in joy as well as in sorrow."

"And in joy as well as in sorrow"

"I promise to love you unconditionally,"

"I promise to love you unconditionally"

"To support you in your goals,"

"To support you in your goals"

"To honor and respect you,"

"To honor and respect you"

"To laugh with you and cry with you,"

"To laugh with you and cry with you"

"And to cherish you for as long as we both shall live."

Now both she and Duo were crying. "And to cherish you for as long as we both shall live." Hilde quickly swooped down into the bust of her dress and pulled out a hankie. The whole church laughed quietly as she began to dab Duo's tears away, then a few of her own.

"Do you have the rings?" Hilde turned to Relena and Duo to Heero. They each produced a matching white gold bands with the inscription "forever" on the inside. Only, the one Duo wad holding had a large princess cut diamond on the top surrounded by two smaller rubies.

"Now Duo, place this ring on Hilde's finger and repeat after me, 'with this ring, I, thee, wed.'"

He slipped it on her finger. "With this ring I, thee, wed."

"Now, Hilde, do the same. 'With this ring, I, thee, wed.'"

She followed suit, "With this ring, I, thee, wed."

"The ring is a symbol of unity into which your two lives are now joined in an unbroken circle, in which, wherever you go, you return to one another." He smiled at the couple. "Now, ever couple's favorite part of the wedding. I now pronounce you husband and wife." The priest winked at Duo, "you can kiss your bride."

And kiss they did…

"I am happy to announce to you for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. Duo Maxwell!" They ran out of the chapel like giddy schoolchildren, holding onto one another for dear life. Heero and Relena followed suit and then the rest of the church exited, behind them they could hear the priest saying "The happy couple invites you to the home of Heero and Relena Yuy for a reception to celebrate their marriage."

Hilde, Duo, Heero, and Relena all had to stay behind a few minutes to take a few more pictures to add to the several thousand they had taken earlier that day.

"So how does it feel to be married to the man of your dreams?" Relena asked, trying not to move her lips too much during the flashing.

"Wonderful!" Hilde didn't exactly follow the same rule, which made the photographer huff for a moment. It's my day, I can talk all I want!

Heero and Relena were able to scurry off a few minutes before Duo and Hilde, so they could have their own pictures of just the two of them. This would also allow them time to get to the party before the two arrived.

At exactly 6:02 they strolled through the door, hand in hand as the announcement blared, "Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. and Mrs. Duo Maxwell!" Then the cheers erupted.

After the first dance and Hilde getting some cake shoved in her face, Quatra tapped his glass a few times. "I would like to make a toast. I could not be more ecstatic that the two of you are finally together forever. You have always been an amazing couple who kept us laughing. The two of you are so unpredictable, but that's what we love about you. You were always happy together, but may you be even happier now that you are wed. May we all finally receive the happiness and joy we deserve, and be able to love and live to the fullest all the days of our lives. Cheers."

"Cheers!" Echoed the crowd.

"Oww…" Relena mumbled, laying a hand on her stomach.

Heero's head snapped to look at her. "What's the matter?"

"It's nothing," she smiled back.

"You're sure?"

"Yes, I just, oww…" She clutched it again.

"We're going to the hospital." He said forcefully.

"We're not leaving." She shot back, glaring.

"If it happens again we are."

"I'm sure the baby's just kicking hard or something. I'm not due for another two weeks." She bit her lip when she felt it again, determined not to give in and leave her best friends wedding reception, but then she felt something sticky. "I think my water just broke…"

"What?"

"We can go now. I think my water just broke…" Heero began rushing her out the door, but she managed to stop him long enough to hug Hilde goodbye. "I'm sorry we can't stay, but I think I'm having a baby."

"What?" Both Hilde and Duo looked at her, stunned."

"Yeah, I'll call you when we find out what it is!" She smiled, and Heero rushed her out.

On a cold Sunday morning, February the 15th at 5:28 am a little girl with blonde hair and Prussian blue eyes was born. A precious little girl named Annabelle Grace Yuy was born to two proud parents and began a whole new chapter in the lives of Heero and Relena.
