Recca opened his window and gazed at the stars

Author Notes: For the song, lyrics in bold are James Ingram's parts also know as the men's parts; Italicized are Dolly Parton's part aka womens; Both are the duets.

I got the information for the first meeting of Yanagi and Recca from Raging Fire and Warmth of Hokage and a few other sites. (Thank you.)

This will sorta switch without warning.. the POVs… but it will be easy to figure out.

The Day I Fall In Love

By moonstar aka yume no tenshi

Recca opened his window and gazed at the stars. Tomorrow will be the day… the day that he will marry the one he loves, his princess.

He was reminiscing, thinking how if anyone could have told him before that he would end up marrying his first love, he'd die of laughter…

He then thought about the day he first set eyes on his Hime…

Just an ordinary day
Started out the same old way

It was ordinary day. I went to boring school, Domon challenging me for a match (again, it's actually a daily routine) to decide who's better between the two of us and beating up my "Oyaji" and reprimanding him for smoking while creating fireworks…

Seeing that my dad did not cook any lunch OR he ate all the lunch he cooked, I went out to buy some hotdogs, that's where it all began.

I bought a hotdog and a drink, I sat down happily munching on them when I heard lil kids running (actually, I wasn't really concentrating on the kiddies that time, y'know) and a voice telling them to stop cause they might fall down or trip or something like that… Eventually it happened, one of the kids trip and I averted my attention from my lunch to the kid and the girl helping him up comforting him from the nasty *trip*

Then I look into your eyes and knew
Today would be a first for me
The day I fall in love

The moment I set my eyes on her, she took my breath away… I'm not sure if it was love at first sight for me, I just, she just – she looked so beautiful. Simply amazing…

At about that time, in the Sakoshita residence, Yanagi made her way to her bed and flopped down and looked around her room. This would probably be her last night here in the time being, seeing that she and Recca would be moving to their new home after the wedding.

She picked up the photo album Recca gave her on their 5th year anniversary of meeting, it was full of their pictures, memories captured forever…

She had been thinking about everything lately… like the day they first met, the same day he declared that she will be his "Hime" and he will be her loyal ninja.

On the day I fall in love
Sky will be a perfect blue

I was running after my kindergarten as I tell them not to run for they might get themselves hurt. Today we take an afternoon trip around the park since they always complain that they are confined in the small classroom and need to get out more (Kids and their reasoning these days!). I ran after them and ran and ran… constantly shouting to them to be careful, but of course, the inevitable happens, one trips. I rushed after him and wiped the kid's tears away. As I comforted him, telling him that his pain will soon go away, I felt someone's gaze at me. I looked up and saw Recca Hanabishi, a guy from my school, and I smiled at him.

Soon, me and the children had to move on, we passed by a construction site and the kids (and a few people) were looking up at it in awe. I told them to move along since it's dangerous over there, but as we were moving on ( just my luck!) a machine bumped onto a pile of pipes which were coming right at us. The other kids ran away but one stuck with me and clutched my leg. I really thought I was gonna die right there but Recca, my hero, pushed us away and got hit by them instead of us. He was lying on the floor with a big pool of blood around him and soon people gathered around and started calling for help. Seeing that I had no choice, I decided to save the man who saved me. I leaned over him and started to heal him, using my ability.

And I'll hear my heart forever more
To someone who is just like you

When he woke up he pretty much freaked out and ran away. I saw him in the park later that day and I kinda introduced myself. He said something about me looking like the princess from his dream as he scratched his head. Seeing that he still had a tiny wound or scratch, I quickly grabbed his hand and started to heal him again. I asked if he thought I was weird and he said a little then said stuff about how I got to keep it a secret.

The day I fall in love

He took me to a warehouse after that and showed me some of his fireworks. It was so beautiful and I never really had a private fireworks show before and it was just so awesome. We then met this lady Kagehoushi (who I know now as him mother) and they fought…

People all say love is wonderful
That the bells will ring
The birds will sing
The sky will open
I wonder where's that great big symphony
Roll over Beethoven
Won't you play with me

After that was, my favorite part. I woke up from my being unconscious and discovered that Recca was carrying me on his back. I asked him about the *strange lady* and he said that he already sent her away and that from then on, he'd be my ninja and I'd be his princess. He has made up his mind and up to now, he has kept his promise and never left my side. All I can say is I am so lucky that I have him.

~~~~~~~

I remember my words to her exactly, on the say that started it all… How can I forget?

And I'll never promise to be true to anyone
Unless it's you
Unless it's you
The day I fall in love

"…Oh, by the way, from now on, I'm your ninja, and you're my princess…"

Hime said that it sounded weird but I said that I didn't care if it's weird, I've made up my mind.

~~~~~~~

Yanagi then walked up to her windowsill and layed down on the soft pillows there. Now she was reminiscing the day that he proposed to her…

People all say love is wonderful

"Hime, c'mon here! I told you the view is simply perfect," Recca said as I made my way up to the top beside him. "But of course, you are a better view than this field of flowers and the mountains!"

"Recca-chan!"

"But it is true! I'd rather stare at you the whole day than these!" he pointed at the view.

I tiptoed and pecked him on the lips. He's always so sweet and so adorable… going out of his way just to flatter me. I love him so much.

The afternoon continued on with us setting up the picnic blanket and eating the food I prepared then just peacefully laying down and naming clouds.

It was at about that time he popped the question. He was saying something about how I'd always be his princess and his love for me is bigger than the universe! It suddenly turned quiet and we can both hear each others breath.

"Hime?"

I looked up at him, "Yes, Recca-chan?"

He sat up and I thought I saw him fidgeting with something.

"Recca-chan?"

He took a deep breath, "Hime, Sakoshita Yanagi, will you marry me?"


That the bells will ring
The birds will sing
The sky will open

At first I didn't know what to say, since the fact he just asked for my hand in marriage didn't register in my mind quickly. As soon as it did, I hugged him and started crying. I kissed him over and over again, saying yes over and over, too.


I wonder where's that great big symphony
Roll over Beethoven
Won't you play with me

He had made me so happy, even if I say those 3 words a million times, I still feel I haven't done enough… I love him too much, he made me so happy that I can't even describe it.

~~~~~~

Just an ordinary day
Started out the same old way

I looked at the crowd gathered up in the small church in which I was to marry my ninja. Fuuko and Ganko are assuring me that everything would be fine, nothing would go wrong and it was all perfect. Fuuko and Ganko are one of my Maid of Honor along with my cousin, Akari. Recca also has 3 Best Men, since he can't decide between Domon and Mikagami AND Koganei, saying that he can't possibly choose between his best friends (this is the part where Kurei-san cut in saying how can he not choose his brother?)

I clutched my Dad's hand as the entourage are beginning to walk down the aisle.

"Angel, Yanagi, my baby, it's okay, everything is fine. You are lucky to have Recca. Don't be nervous." My daddy said.

I held on to his hand even more. I walked and when I was near the altar, I locked eyes with Recca…

Then I look into your eyes and knew
Today will be a first for me
A first for me
The day I fall in love

When our gazes locked I felt that I'm falling for her all over again. Today was the big day. OUR big day. Everyday is the same, because everyday I fall in love with her again… deeper and deeper.

I looked at my best men and they all gave me reassuring smiles as if saying "you're the man now recca! Everything fine so CHILL!"

Before her dad gave her away to me he whispered, "Recca, I know you will take care of my angel, seeing that you've taken care of her when I wasn't able to. I trust you. Take care of your princess."

Hime kissed her Dad's cheek and tears slowly trailed down her cheek. Her dad then handed Hime's hand to me and I squeezed it. Today will be a first of me, the day I will marry my Hime, my everything…

I know you'll be there
Ooh....I know...
The day I fall in love

The wedding ceremonies continued. In the background crying can be heard, but you can clearly see that the people are happy to see the couple finally getting married.

They said their vows…

"You may now kiss the bride."

Recca lifted Yanagi's veil, they first gazed at each other's eyes then Recca leaned forward and gave his wife a kiss. A kiss for forever.

Fuuko leaned on Mikagami's shoulder. "Mi-chan, don't they look so cute?"

Mikagami looked on as he nuzzled his head on Fuuko's, "Why? Can't wait for our turn?"

The End.

Should I write a sequel or not? Please read and review and tell me what you think!
