Nine Months in the Socks of the Motamiya's: Chapter One
(A/N – This story has taught me two valuable lessons. One: to expand my mind to writing beyond what I thought was possible. And two: watch who you trust with your story ideas…THIS is the REAL story that was stolen from me by Happybunnyroxmysox, also known as digimonqueen12. I hope you enjoy the real version of the story!)
"Davis, come on, man. You're sweating like a roast pig at the spit!" Tai said, taking a drink of water. "You're gonna melt away to a puddle by the time you get up to the alter."
"I can't help it, dude. I'm nervous as heck." The brunette said, completing his fifth circuit around the small dressing room, his undone tie flapping around his neck. "I'm about to marry the girl of my dreams. I'm gonna spend the rest of my life with this one girl. My stomach is turning freaking flips."
"Don't worry about it, man," Tai said, clapping Davis on the back. "Those are just butterflies. I had the same thing when I married Sora. They'll go away the second you step into the chapel."
"Well, ummm…" Tai faltered, scratching behind his head. "You see…. What happened…"
A quick knock at the door came as a blessing for Tai as TK stuck his blonde head in the door. "Ten minute warning, guys." He said, looking around. "Ready yet?"
"We're gonna need a few minutes, T." Tai said, taking both ends of Davis' tie. "Tell the priest we'll be on time."
"All right, Tai. But remember, as best man, you and the groom have to be there early at the altar." T.K reminded as he walked in the room, brushing off the arms of his black suit.
"Come on, lets get this tied off, man." Tai sighed, "Chin up. I hope I'm doing this right."
"Are you sure you know what you're doing, Tai?" TK asked, after a minute.
"Of course I do!" Tai said, indignantly, untying his index finger from the loop of fabric. "I tied my own tie at my wedding, remember?"
"First of all, you just got married a few months ago, and second, Matt said he tied it for you because your hands were trembling so bad from nerves!"
"Remind me to kill your brother before the day is out."
"Just pull it tight until I start turning blue and pass away." Davis groaned.
"Oh, no. You're committed to this, Daisuke Motomiya. You're not getting away that easily." Tai warned as he finished tying the tie. "Besides, I refuse to have your blood on my hands. This tux is a rental."
At that, Davis gave a wobbly grin. "It would be a shame to waste all that money you spent. Though…" Davis picked at the material on Tai's suit. "Looking at the material, it wouldn't be a total waste—ACK!"
"There!" Tai said, triumphantly, shooting an evil grin to the brunette as he gave the freshly tied fabric a tight tug. "I think we're ready."
"Yeah. I feel better now, thanks guys." Davis sighed, relieved as he worked a finger in between the tight tie and his neck. "Lets get with it."
Oh boy…here we go, here we go…the game has started…here we go…
Davis stood, palms near sopping with sweat as he watched the bridesmaids marched in with their escorts with the strains of "Clare De Lune" playing softly in the background.
Man, she did a great job picking out the dresses. I guess she really didn't need me hanging around the bridal stores and stuff. Davis thought, as Mimi, Yolei, June and Sora walked to his right on the other side of the alter and Izzy, Matt, Tai and TK walked to his left, up and behind him.
"Go get 'em tiger." Matt muttered under his breath.
"Yeah! Don't screw this up." Izzy mumbled. "I recommend you follow our prodigious example."
"Shut up guys! I got this licked." Davis growled through clenched teeth.
"You're looking a little nervous over there, Davis," Yolei hissed loudly. "Sure you're not scared?"
"Nah! I'm not scared! I'm not scared at all!" Davis hissed back as the music slowly faded.
I'm petrified. I'm scared crap-less! Oh man; here she comes, here she comes.
The congregation stood as one as the familiar strains of the wedding march echoed thorough the chapel. In the doorway at the other end, stood a figure dressed in a flowing white gown, her face hidden in a white, translucent veil.
The other figure standing with her was dressed in a dark tuxedo, his arm wrapped around the white figure's arm, his face bearing a proud smile. On a music cue, the pair slowly started walking down the petal littered aisle.
She looks so beautiful. Davis thought, as the slight trembling in his hands slowly intensified. He fought all urges to put his hands in his pockets. He took a couple deep breaths as he watched the two figures draw closer and closer to the alter where he stood.
The male figure walking with her leaned in slightly, and whispered something out the corner of his mouth, causing a bright smile to shine from underneath the veil covering her face.
That smile still shines through no matter what may block it's way. Davis thought, a small smile working his way on his lips. His hands slowly eased their trembling as the two figures finally made their way to the foot of the alter.
Davis stepped down towards the two and accepted the proffered hand from the male figure. He patted him on the back as he sat down in the empty seat on the front row. "Take care of my baby girl, Daisuke."
Davis gave a small wink as the pair slowly walked up to the altar. "I put my life on it, sir." He whispered.
Whoa. This is…this is really happening! I'm actually standing up here! With her! And we're getting married! I'm getting married to my dream girl! Man! This is so…
All heads in the chapel jerked up and stared at the altar, as Davis stood, frozen with his fist pumped high in the air.
Tai smacked a hand to his forehead, his head shaking from side to side. Why, oh why, oh why…
"Ha…ha…ha…I guess I'm just excited." Davis said, chuckling nervously as he scratched behind his head. "Sorry."
The figure next to him giggled madly. "Oh, Davis," She sighed playfully. "The least you could have done was wait until the end!"
"You know you have that kind of effect on me." Davis said, grinning sheepishly.
Davis and the figure jumped and turned around to face the priest, who had a weary yet warm smile on his face. "If you don't mind, can we please get this show on the road?"
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to witness the joining of Daisuke Motomiya and…"
"By the powers vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss your bride."
Finally! It's about time! Davis thought as he lifted up the veil. I thought that priest would never get around to it.
Davis wrapped his arms around the figure, allowing their foreheads to touch before he gently pressed his lips against hers, enjoying the scent and taste of his new bride. He closed his eyes and saw flashes of light like fireworks in his eyelids as he slowly tightened his comforting grip on her.
After a minute, the pair finally broke apart, the figure opened her eyes and blinked, a wide smile spread on her face along with a dark red flush on her cheeks.
"It is my esteemed pleasure to present to you, Davis and Hik—"
The priest smacked his hand to his forehead as Davis gave a leap, his fist punching through the air. He gave a sigh as he closed his bible. "Daisuke and Hikari Motomiya."
The congregation gave a loud cheer and stood up as Davis and Kari, hand in hand, walked down the aisle towards the doors.
Outside, they were met with a flurry of sunflower seeds, thrown by their cheering friends and family along the path to the waiting vehicle.
"Sunflower seeds?" Davis asked curiously, catching a handful of the seeds. "What, no rice?"
"Silly, raw rice would hurt the birds tummy." Kari explained, batting Davis playfully on the arm. "the birds can eat the seeds without getting sick."
"Always thinking, aren't ya?" Davis said, kissing her on the cheek.
"Well, one of us has to be the brains of this marriage." Kari said, laughing.
As they approached the vehicle, a flock of white doves flew from the bell tower of the chapel, flying over the top of the new couple. A couple of them flew to the ground to eat the fallen sunflower seeds, the remainder few off over the horizon. Kari and Davis looked up in awe as the crowd cheered.
A white dove landed on Kari's shoulder, eating the seeds that landed in the nest of her veil. "I would call that a pretty good sign of things to come." Davis said as he held the door open for Kari.
Kari held out a finger and the dove jumped onto it. She grinned. "Do you wanna come with us little fellow?" she cooed. "Do you want to come with us on our honeymoon?"
The dove gave a soft coo, cocking its head from side to side as it studied Kari and Davis.
"Go fly and be happy, little one," Kari said, holding up her finger, allowing the dove to fly off with the others. "Be as happy as I am now." She continued, turning to Davis with a smile as she climbed in the waiting limo.
"Next stop; Paris, France!" Davis said, as he climbed in the limo next to her, staring into her dark brown eyes.
"And after that…eternity." Kari cooed, pulling him into a sweet, deep kiss.
"Wow." Davis gasped. "If that's what Eternity is going to be like, I think I'm gonna enjoy it!"
