Kitty got up and got ready for school the next morning despite the professor explaining that she could stay home with everyone else. Politely declining, she reminded him that she'd already missed enough school and it would look strange if at least one member of the Institute wasn't there. She promised to pick up everyone's homework for them and just spent extra time in the bathroom concealing the dark bags under her eyes.
Of course, the real reason she wanted to go to school was so that she could see Lance. That is, if he hadn't been shishkabobed by Logan the night before. When she'd asked him about it over breakfast, the man just grunted into his coffee, which, knowing Logan, could mean anything.
The first three classes dragged along with business as usual, as well as review sheets and studying for the upcoming exams. She took the usual notes and raised her hand enough to make her teachers think she was paying attention. One of the best things about being a genius was that it generally wasn't necessary to know what the teacher was talking about to answer them.
It was a pain to stop herself from phasing towards the Health room after the bell rang at the end of third period. He was sitting there in his desk as always, shaggy brown hair falling into his eyes in a way she could only deem as irresistibly cute.
"Hey, you," she greeted him, nuzzling his neck.
He looked up, planting a loving kiss on her lips. "Morning."
"Glad to see you're, like, all in one piece," Kitty smiled, sliding into her own desk. "What did Mr. Logan want to talk to you about anyway?"
"The usual. If I hurt you, I'll have to deal with him. If I cheat on you, I'll have to deal with him. If I knock you up, not even God will be able to save me."
She giggled as the late bell rang. "Good morning, everyone," their teacher greeted them. "I hope you all remember that your projects are due soon. For those of you who are slackers, I'm giving you the entire class period to work on it. As a bit of fun for those who aren't buried in work, I thought it would be fun to have mock weddings for those who want it. Anyone interested?" She sighed as not a single person raised their hand. "You'll get extra credit on the project." Half of the class was now interested.
Kitty and Lance polished off their work, attempting to sneak kisses in whenever Ms. Smith wasn't looking. She had been one of the people who had volunteered, and Jessica handed her the fake bouquet as Lance humored her and stood at the 'alter.'
A CD played the wedding march as Kitty walked down the main aisle of desks from the door to the front of the classroom. She stood with her boyfriend and grinned. "Dearly beloveds we are gathered here today to join Lance Alvers and Kitty Pryde in holy matrimony. If anyone should object, speak now or forever hold your piece," the instructor recited from memory. Of course, almost everyone else was working, so it wasn't entirely necessary, but it added a bit to the fun.
"Ok, then. Lance Alvers, do you take Kitty Pryde to be your wife, to have and to hold, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, till death do you part?"
Lance squeezed Kitty's hand. "I do." To her, he mouthed 'I love you.'
"Great. Kitty, do you take Lance to be your husband, to have and to hold, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, till death do you part?"
"I do," she grinned. 'I love you too,' she mouthed back.
Ms. Smith handed them two plastic rings that probably came from a vending machine, or a cracker jacks box. Regardless, the two slipped them on before facing their teacher again. "By the power vested in me as your health teacher, I now pronounce you mock husband and wife. You may kiss the bride."
While most couples usually gave a pop kiss or a peck on the cheek, Lance bent her backwards, locking lips as the rest of the class clapped or wolf-whistled. He picked her up bridal style and carried her back down the aisle as Ms. Smith called, "This doesn't mean you can have a mock honeymoon!"
Kitty laughed and put her arms around Lance's neck as he asked, "And they all lived happily ever after?"
Both of them knew that it wasn't the case, as they were enemies and mutants and everything was going to continue to be against them. Still, she grinned and kissed him again. "Close enough."
A/N: The finale of my first X-men: Evolution fic. I actually guessed that it would be between fifteen and twenty chapters and I was right. Yay.
I will continue writing Lancitty fics, as they are still my favorite Evo couple. But I'm going to wait a while before I put a new one up. There's another fic that I want to work on and it will have Lancitty in it, though they aren't the main couple. I have two major Lancitty ideas that I'll post, but I don't want to get burned out and then not want to update and end up disappointing everyone.
I hope everyone enjoyed this fic and I thank everyone who read and reviewed. Especially the few who have stuck with me from the very beginning (I love you DOJ!).
