Crazy First Love
Chapter 17 - Final Vows
"WHAT THE HELL DO YOU MEAN THEY SCREWED UP THE ENVELOPES?" Syaoran boomed over the phone as well as making everyone in the room flinch at his sudden outburst.
Sakura sighed and flung one of the envelopes in the trash can. "I hope you guys have ear plugs," she said taking hers out and sticking them in her ears.
"IF YOU DON'T GET IT RIGHT BY THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, YOU WON'T EVEN WANT TO HEAR WHAT I'LL DO TO YOU!" he roared slamming the phone down on his desk.
"Let me guess, they screwed up something?" Eriol said coming in to the room with a tray of coffee.
Tomoyo sighed. "Yeah, apparently they misprinted the invitations," she said taking a cup.
"Oh... so what else is new?" he shrugged putting a cup on Syaoran's desk. They were all in his room where there were quite a number of papers mounted.
"I'm getting stressed because of this," Syaoran grunted. "They screwed up our names on every card. How much more retarded can people get?"
"There are no boundries for things like that. That's what makes life interesting," Eriol joked taking a drink from his coffee.
"Yeah, for YOU maybe."
"Alright boys, you have fun while we go shopping!" Tomoyo said dragging Sakura out of the room.
"Huh? Where?" Syaoran asked.
"Where else? FOR GOWNS!" she squealed. "See you later at dinner!" and they slammed the door shut behind them.
Sakura yawned as they waited by the front gates. "So where are we going to get the gowns?"
"Hmm, let me think for a second," Tomoyo said. "OH! I know the perfect place."
"Where?" she asked as a black limo pulled up. The back seat door flung open and Meilin'g head popped out.
"Alright, if we want to get this done, move it!" she shouted as they both went inside joined her.
-At the place Tomoyo was talking about-
"Eh... 'Florence's Wedding Gown Palace'?" Sakura observed. (a/n: Lame name, yes? lol)
"It's one of the best places I know so c'mon!" Tomoyo said as she and Meilin dragged her inside.
"Welcome dears! How can I help you?" a woman asked as the three came in looking around.
"We're looking for a suitable wedding gown for my friend," Meilin said.
"Ah! Well, I have a rather big collection! Shall we proceed to the back?" the woman asked gesturing them to follow.
"Cool! I'd love to to see your designs!" Tomoyo said with excitement.
Oh damn... I hope I don't have to try out everything, Sakura silently begged.
He rustled through the papers as Eriol helped him manage phone calls so he wouldn't shout because of his stress.
"I see, alright, thank you," Eriol said hanging up the phone.
"Well, what did those idiots say now?" Syaoran sighed.
"They have everything done, surprisingly. It seems they made this order personal because of your earlier outburst," he laughed.
"If you were getting married and called this place, I'd see you doing the same thing. So relative invitations my mother can take care of, right now we need reservations and the tuxedos... oh crap," he groaned. "I forgot about the fitting."
"Relax! We'll go call a tuxedo place so that should be taken care of."
"The due date for the wedding is next week. I want to get this crap over with! Then there's guest listing and the decorations of teh chapel to take care of as well as a rehearsal so we don't screw this up!"
The phone then rang. He sighed dropping his head to the desk. Eriol picked it up. "Hello?"
After several minutes of talking Eriol held the receiver for a moment.
"It's the decorators. They wanted to know if you would rather prefer roses, cherry blossoms, sunflowers, some other types or a combination?"
"I don't believe I should be asked that... only teh girls have a sense of decoration," he sighed. "Alright, uhhh, combination."
"Combination, madam," Eriol replied over teh phone and then set it down. "Alright, decoration is taken care of, so now we just need the clothes, which should be taken care of by the end of the day, if not, tomorrow and then the rehearsal. Happy? Oh yeah, and the food."
"It sounds so simple to you doesn't it?" he grinned.
Sakura groaned as she was shown another gown. They had been there for 2 hours, making her try on practically a dozen dresses and more to come and they didn't find one that suited their taste so far.
"Alright, how about this one? White elegance, strapless, glitter design along with a slit on the long skirt for your legs. I think we have a winner!" Tomoyo said holding up the dress.
Sakura raised an eyebrow. "Does it have to be strapless?"
"There's a non-strapless one too but it makes it look so much better!" Meilin said. "Now go try it on before I go crazy staying in this place."
She laughed and took the dress into the dressing room and then came out several minutes later. Tomoyo screamed joy making some of the other customers stare at her like she was from a mental ward. Meilin rolled her eyes.
"YOU LOOK DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS!" Tomoyo ranted on.
Sakura looked in the mirror to actually notice teh dress wasn't so bad strapless. And it managed to hug every curve of her body bring out her physical features nicely.
"I guess it's alright," she said. "But I'm guessing there's still a few more features to the dress along with the veil."
"Yeah, there's still a long attachment for the dress over there."
"Oh yeah, don't the guys need to get their tuxs fitted?"
"I thought they did that the day before yesterday. Damn it!" Meilin groaned as she took out her cellphone. "I'll check first."
-The Guys, tux fittings-
Syaoran sighed as he lifted his arms as the a man took measurements. Eriol observed from a seat next to the door.
"Alright... and we're finished!" the man exclaimed wiping his forehead. "We'll have the suit ready for you by tomorrow, guaranteed."
"Good," Syaoran groaned. "I'm quite exhausted..."
"Well, that's good but we need to--" Eriol began but was cut off by his cellphone ringing. He takes it out putting it to his ear. "Hello?"
"Oh, right Meilin. Yeah, we're finished here."
"It's black. And we're finishing up the others but we're still going to need the girls' judgements for decorations... uh huh. Alright, later."
He snapped teh phone shut and sighed. "Wel, they're finished.The girls I mean."
"Right, so they're coming back now?"
"Yes but they're also tired so we'll have to wait till tomorrow to get anything else done."
Syaoran sighed and leaned back into the couch closing his eyes. "Right... I need a nap..."
He stirred on the couch, pulling some covers over his head as he heard voices coming from the other room. Immediately he opened his eyes and shot up from his position. "Huh?"
"Awake, I see, sleeping beauty," Sakura laughed as she came in from the next room, closing it behind her.
"Uh, yeah... when did you get back?" he asked scratching the back of his head as she sat next to him.
"About 4 in the afternoon. It's 6:30 so no worries. I still need to get back home," she sighed, leaning against him. He smiled slightly and put his arms around her in which she shifted comfortably in.
"Pretty much... yeah. You try fitting on a dozen gowns within a few hours, why don't you?" she teased.
"I'll pass," he chuckled. His mind then went off back to what she might've been thinking the other night and began to hesitate at the question he wanted to ask her. She might take it the wrong way...
She noticed the sudden silence and closed her eyes. "Something wrong?"
He blinked and looked down at her. "Nothing important I guess... but... I wanted to ask you something," he said hesitantly.
"Sure, ask away."
He sighed. "You don't... regret ever saying yes to marrying me do you?"
No reply came. Just the soft breathing from the two occupants. She then let out a heavy sigh. "Why are you asking now?"
"I... just had to ask. It sort of came up... last night."
Her arms then wrapped themselves around his waist as she snuggled into his chest. "I don't regret anything with you. So I was more than happy when you asked me to marry you although..."
"I don't like to wait for the honeymoon," she teased. He raised an eyebrow at her with a grin.
"Really?" he asked incredulously. "Well, then, I don't see why we would have to, other than the fact of your brother," he laughed.
"True...," she sighed. But a wicked grin showed on her face. "So what's the plan?"
-2 Hours Later-
"I'm telling you, he did something," Touya said through gritted teethas Tomoyo and Eriol led him up the stairs towards Syaoran's work room.
"You should give him more credit, Touya," Tomoyo said with a laugh. "You'll have to get used to him sometime soon or there'll be fueds between you two all the time when they get married."
The older man sighed. "If Sakura likes her that much, I won't care but I just don't like him. And this gaki kept her after her 'curfew'."
Eriol couldn't hold back his laughter.
"What?" Touya asked glaring at him.
"Sorry, just thinking of something funny while you talk," he said quickly.
They reached the door and opened it and the sight they saw was something that could've made Touya go on a killing spree. Tomoyo and Eriol dropped their jaws. Syaoran and Sakura were asleep... together. There they were, under a blanket and you can see that they were probably naked underneath.
"WHAT IN THE BLOODY HELL'S NAME ARE YOU DOING WITH THAT GAKI, KAIJUU!" Touya roared.
The two didn't stir but in return of the outrage, they both burst into hysterical laughter as Sakura pulled the covers off themselves to reveal they were 'fully' clothed. Sakura was wearing short shorts with a tube top while Syaoran was wearing shorts along with his sleeveless undershirt straps pulled to teh side of their arms to make an illusion of them being naked under teh covers.
Sakura couldn't stop laughing. "You should've seen teh look on teh three of you faces," she laughed holding her stomach.
A look of relief came on Touya's face but he threw a menacing glare at the two. "DON'T DO THAT!" Even Syaoran was laughing. Tomoyo and Eriol followed too. Then Sakura stopped and went over to Touya who was still staring at her and then her foot met his and made his jump up and down holding his foot.
"Even after all these years you still call me that," she sighed but with a laugh.
"Oh, it wasn't my fault, she suggested it," Syaoran said waving his hands in front of him innocently.
"SUGGESTED! And you went along with it," Eriol said in disbelief.
"What can I say? It was tempting," he joked earning a slap from his fiancee on the arm.
"Alright, I'll see you guys tomorrow then!" she said giving a last kiss on Syaoran's lips and dragged her brother out of the room quickly before he recovered to get his soon-to-be husband.
Meilin then bursted into teh room. "What did I miss? I was downstairs until I heard something--" she paused looking around the room. "What?"
"You really are late for the fun stuff now, Mei," Syaoran said. "Well, we still have a few days so c'mon, let's eat and get some sleep!"
After that little incident, let's say Touya's dislike for Syaoran was actually DEcreased because of the sense of humor but nonetheless they had arguments over teh next few days of helping with wedding preparations. Everything went smoothly with teh decorations on teh chapel which of course, the girls helped out in due to the guys' lack of imagination of beauty. And the invitations weer finally printed correctly, on time, and the guest list, shall we say, was VERY long due to the Li family relations including the Kinomoto family relatives.
And thus brings us teh promised day... (a/n: i skipped a lot but there's nothing important you needed to know. Lol. and i ran out of pranks ;D)
-Promised day, the wedding, the bride-
Sakura stared at herself in the mirror of the dressing room. Tomoyo then came through the door with Meilin.
"Hey there!" Meilin greeted. "SO how do you feel?"
"Nervous... I mean, this is something I dreamed wouldn't happen for at least another few years but here I am. I'm not even in college yet!" she said in one breath.
"Sakura, calm down and breathe!" Tompoyo laughed as she flushed. "You'll be fine. You and Syaoran love each other right?"
"Yeah... but that's only now! So then what about a few years later?"
Meilin gripped her by the shoulders. "Don't think like that! What happened to the positive Sakura I first met? You'll be fine! And Syaoran won't stop caring about you. He's been talking about you nonstop after he asked you to marry him," she said reassuringly.
"And before," Tomoyo added. "So I don't see what you have to worry about. I think he's lucky to even hear you say yes! And we've all known each other for a long time now!"
Sakura sighed and then smiled. "Sorry, last minute panicking," she laughed. They nodded.
Syaoran sighed as Eriol put a hand on his shoulder. "What's up? Last minute gitters?"
"No, just want to hurry up to my honeymoon," he laughed. "I'm sure everything will be alright from now on."
His friend smiled at him. "Good. You're lucky since Sakura is a really good person... and definitely a soon-to-be good wife."
"Thanks. So when are you planning to ask Tomoyo?" he asked. Eriol flushed.
"Well... about that, I'm not quite sure. But I'm suspecting very soon so you can expect another wedding in the next few months," he laughed.
"That's good. She's a good friend... well, you have my blessings then!" he said patting him on the back.
"Alright, time's up," he said as the organ (a/n: is that what the piano thing was calling in teh churches? lol) began playing.
Sakura walked along side her father with the viel covering her face. Fujitaka smiled as they began walking down teh aisle.
"You know Sakura, I'm very proud to have you as my daughter," he whispered to her.
"And I'm proud to have someone like you as my dad. Thanks for everything," she replied with a smile. "I love you dad."
"I love you too, my cherry blossom."
They made it to the front altar and she let go of his arm, proceeding up to stand next to Syaoran, who looked quite handsome in his black tuxedo. Everyone looked on, Touya smiling at the two as his father sat next to him.
"They make a nice pair, don't they?" he asked. Touya nodded.
The preacher coughed and put on his small glasses on his nose, looking at his book.
"So we are gathered here today to witness this merry couple on this joyous day of bonding in holy matrimony. If anybody here should have any reasons why these two should not be wed, speak now or forever hold your peace."
No one said anything so he continued with another cough. "Your vows..."
(a/n: okay, i just dont remember what ppl did at weddings with the vows so i mixed it up. LOL. no offence to those who like proper weddings? ")
"I, Kinomoto Sakura, take you, Li Syaoran, as my lawfully wedded husband until death do us part, whether in sickess or in health."
"I, Li Syaoran, take you, Kinomoto Sakura, as my lawfully wedded wife until death do us part, whether in sickess or in health."
"The rings..." Eriol then handed them their rings with a smile mouthing, "Congratulations."
"And so I now proclaim you husband and wife. Groom, you may now kiss the bride," the preacher finished. Syaoran smiled as he lifted teh viel to reveal a beautiful face. He leaned in kissing her softly on teh lips and in return, Sakura kissed back but passionately. The hall was then filled with cheers, applause and laughter. They parted and flushed as they looked at their guests.
"Well, I think that walking down the aisle together is so boring..." Syaoran grinned. Sakura was about to ask what until he lifted her int eh air in his arms. "I think this'll do."
"Hey!" she gasped when they slowly walked down the aisle while being greeted by their friends.
"Have a nice time!" they called as the limo pulled up by the gates.
"Well, I think that went pretty well," she said smiling, holding him around his neck.
"I believe so," he replied as the driver opened teh back door for them and they went in, driving off imediately after.
"So, Mrs Li, what shall we do on the dearest time of our wedding day?"
"We'll see when we get to the destination," she said kissing him on the lips. "I love you, Syaoran, my arrogant beast..." she said when she felt her eye lids drop.
He wrapped his arms around her body pulling her close, resting his head against hers. "I love you too, Sakura, my beautiful goddess..." he chuckled, planting a light kiss on her lips.
"When you're here by my side, smiling as bright as the sun, it's all I need to keep going, it's all I need to be near you, together."
