A/N Written for inuyashas nekko who requested Shampoo/Ranma with the theme ring.

---

The ring slipped onto her slender finger so easily, as if Fate itself fitted the lovely symbol of love and devotion for her.

She was smiling so wide and so lovely, her gown flowing out like waves of purest opal.

He was smiling back, and there was no mistaking the softness in those metal blue eyes.

"Do you, Ranma Saotome, take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?"

"Yes."

A stray tear fell down her cheek.

"And do you, Akane Tendo-"

Shampoo didn't hear the rest, but she kept smiling even as the tears fell like a heavy rain.
