This is the last chapter in this story, and I hope that you liked it… I am so thankful to all of you that reviewed and told me what you thought… Thank you so much!
The feeling in the pit of Brian's stomach, usually would have been overwhelming, were it not that he was standing under the arch where he was to be married, in only a few minutes. He looked to his left and saw Dom and Rome standing there, giving him the thumbs up. Music started and he looked down the isle.
First Shanara came, in a flowing blue satin dress, carrying a white bouquet of flowers. Then came two other woman, friends of Suki's, both carrying yellow wild flowers, and wearing lighter colored blue dresses. Then Brie came down the isle, her dress the same shade as Shanara's, and carrying the same color bouquet, with different flowers. Next came Emmy, hair in ringlets, a crown of baby's breath on her head. She was wearing a little white dress and sandals, carrying a basket full of all different kinds of petals from wild flowers; tossing them all over the isle; her smile huge as she saw her daddy.
As she finished walking down the isle, she went and sat by Mira, who was sitting in the front row, and waved to Brian. He waved at her, and smiled, seeing her eyes light up. Then the louder music started, and Brian looked up as everyone stood. What he saw made him gasp.
Suki stood at the end of the isle, a veil over her head. Her dress was flowing down, it was tight at the top, two-inch straps of white lace adorned her arms, just below her shoulders. Just above her waist, there was a sash of white silk about an inch and a half wide, before the dress flowed out, small intricate patterns sewn into the fabric. Her hair was done up in a braided bun, with little wisps hanging down around her face, and short curls on the base of her neck, which also contained a necklace with a small diamond tear drop hanging on a gold chain.
She looked up at him from under the veil, and smiled at him. She was being led down the isle by Kell, who looked up at Brian, with an all-knowing brother look, and gave Brian a nod to tell him that it would all be great. He smiled, and nodded back, thanking him with a silent look.
When Suki finally reached Brian, she was smiling so broadly Brian wondered how anyone could be unhappy in the world. Her veil was lifted back, and he took her hands in his own, giving her reassuring smile, and then they turned to the priest. He went on and on, and all Brian could focus on was Suki, until she squeezed his hand, and the priest said; "Brian and Suki wish to share their own vows today, so, they may do so now."
Brian looked up at Suki, and took a deep breath. "Suki, I have loved you since I first saw you. Any normal person would say all of the poetic stuff, but I just don't think it says the right thing." Brian said, and then with one look into Suki's eyes, he said; "There is no other woman that I would rather marry, no other woman that I would, or could love as much as I do you. I asked you to marry me because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you, and nothing would ever change that. I will love you and cherish you until I can no longer draw breath, and I hope that you can do the same." By the time he finished and looked up into her eyes, there were tears threatening to fall from her eyes.
"I will always love you Brian, and when you proposed to me in front of the sunset right here, that day I knew that I could never let you go. I love you Brian, and I promise that I will until I live no longer. You are my heart now, and nothing and no one could ever change that." Suki said, and Brian looked at her struck by the sincerity in her voice.
"And you are my heart and soul." He whispered so that only she could hear. Brian was lost in her eyes until she squeezed his hand and nodded at the priest. "I do." He said, and slipped the golden band that Dom handed him on her finger.
"And Suki, do you promise to love and cherish Brian, through sickness and health till death do you part." The priest asked.
She nodded, and said, "I do." She slipped the ring on Brian's finger, and looked at him, her brown eyes locking with his blue gaze.
"I now pronounce husband and wife, you may kiss the bride." The priest said. Brian took Suki in his arms, and kissed her, twirling her around. "Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Brian O'Connor." The priest said once Brian and Suki were done kissing, and holding arms they turned to everyone. They smiled and everyone cheered, Dom, Rome, and Kell taking turns to hug Suki, shaking hands with Brian. Then the Bridesmaids came, and they hugged both Brian and Suki, sometimes gently kissing Brian on the cheek.
Emmy came running up to her father once everyone else was at the tables set all around, and jumped into his waiting arms. He gave her a kiss on the cheek, and she giggled. "Daddy looks handsome." She said, and Suki winked at her.
"Yes, well my two favorite girls are absolutely gorgeous today." Brian said, pulling Suki into his arms, still holding Emmy.
"Brian!" Dom yelled from out by the dance floor. "Yo, it's time for the first dance." He said, and Brian looked horrified at the prospect of having to dance at all, let alone in front of all the people there.
"You'll do fine." Suki whispered in his ear, and some of the uneasiness went away from his face, but some still remained. He wanted everything to be perfect, and if that meant dancing, which Suki wanted, he would do it, but he would promise no one anything. He had never danced, so he knew nothing of how good he was at the skill.
Taking Suki's hand, he led her over to where Dom was, and deposited Emmy into his waiting arms. He then took Suki out on the dance floor, and she put her arms around his neck, while he wrapped his around her waist.
The song was slow, and they just swayed together, for which Brian was grateful, because there was no way that he could mess that up. When the song ended everyone cheered, and there came a call of, "Throw the bouquet," in a chorus of women's voices. All the men laughed, as all the women lined up behind Suki, who was now standing alone , except for Brian, who had her hand in his squeezing it tightly.
Shanara looked surprised as the bouquet landed in her hands, and looked up at Suki, and shook her head. "You did that on purpose didn't you?" Suki just shook her head and smiled. It came time for the throwing of the guarder and Brian sat Suki down, raising her dress just enough to pull the white lace off of her leg. She remained sitting as Brian turned around, and tossed it over his head to the single men waiting behind him.
The garment landed in Dom's hands, and the big man laughed, going over to Shanara. "I guess that means that we're getting married next." Dom said, his voice low and sensual.
She laughed at him, and then said; "If you're going to stand there, then you might as well ask me to dance." He laughed, and extended his hand. Shanara took it gently in her own, and he pulled her from her chair. As they swayed to the music, Shanara gently laid her head on his masculine chest, and sighed.
A smile came over his face, as he thought about the beautiful woman in his arms. He bent down to her, and whispered; "Would you like to go out to dinner with me tomorrow night, on a date?"
She looked up at him and smiled. "I was hoping that you would ask me that, so my answer is yes." His smile broadened, and she grinned up at him. They heard laughter coming from somewhere to their right, and looked up to find Suki and Brian looking at them, and laughing, as they danced to the music.
Brian was glad to see everyone having a good time, and was relieved that this day had come, and he was now married to the most wonderful woman on the planet. He was driven from his thoughts, as he felt a tug on his pant leg. Looking down, he saw Emmy, and smiled at her.
"Can I dance with you daddy?" She asked, her voice quiet for a change.
He looked at Suki who nodded, and he bent his head to look down at his daughter again. "Of course you can sweetheart, come here." He said, and extended his arms to her. She walked into them, and he picked her up. As she held on tight to her, her head resting on his chest, he moved to the music.
By the end of the song, Emmy was asleep, and he walked over to the table where Suki was sitting with Dom, Shanara, Rome, and Kell. He sat down, Emmy still in his arms, and they all sighed.
"You two look so cute together." Suki said, stroking Emmy hair. Brian moved his chair right next to Suki's, and pulled her under his arm. She leaned in, and he kissed her head. A man with a camera came over.
"Can I take a picture of all of you?" He asked quietly so as not to disturb Emmy. They nodded, and he grinned. Suki took the hand that Brian was holding Emmy with, and entwined her fingers in his. Laying her head on his shoulder, she sighed. The camera went off twice, and Emmy stirred as the flashes met her eyes.
"It's about time for you guys to leave, isn't it?" Dom asked.
"Are you sure you guys will be alright with Emmy?" Brian asked.
"We'll be fine, Bri, stop worrying. Go on your honeymoon, and have some fun." Dom said, smiling as Shanara reached for Emmy. Dom, Rome, and Kell stood up, taking Brian over to the side, and as they were about to say good-bye, a flash went off. They moved in closer without a word, and smiled. Throwing their arms over each other's shoulders, the camera guy focused the camera and took their picture.
The girls were ushered over to them, after having pictures of their own taken, and a huge group picture was taken. Brian went over and kneeled before a half awake Emmy, kissed her on the cheek, and said; "I love you, and I will see you in about a week sweetie." Emmy nodded, and kissed her father back, wrapping her tiny arms around his neck for a minute, before letting go. Dom took her in his arms, and Brian and Suki said their good-byes.
As they walked away, there was a loud cheer, and they smiled. A limo was waiting for them, 'Just Married,' written on the back. They got in, and held each other close as they headed to the airport to begin their new lives.
A/N: I hope that you liked it, and if you want there will be a sequel.
There should be to tell what happens to Rick and Brian, but that will only happen if there are people who want to read it!
Thank you all for all of the reviews! I am glad that you stuck with the story, and love it as much as I did, and do!
