Chapter Fifteen

Serenity called Mai and asked her help in making out the Wedding Invitations and Mai told her "Hon, have Joey bring you over when he has time and tell him that I need to figure out what kind of hair style to do your hair for the Wedding."

Joey dropped Rene over at Mai's and as they sat down at the table Serenity said "I've written something and I want you to tell me if it's alright."

Serenity Wheeler

Would like to invite you to the Wedding of:

Joseph William Wheeler


Tea Marie Gardner

To be held on the 1st of May, 2008

The Wedding will be held in the back yard of the Wheeler residence.

Please R.S.V.P as soon as possible.

Mai listened and when Serenity was through, Mai had tears in her eyes as she said "Hon that's beautiful, now all we have to do is go to the printers and get copies made out and then we need to address envelopes and put the invitations in them and mail them out."

When they got back from the printers, Serenity said "How much do I owe you?" Mai smiled as she told her "Nothing, I wanted to help you and lets just call it even, because you are one hell of a great sister and I'm glad to call you my friend."

While Serenity was at Mai's, Joey and Tea were in different rooms working on their vows and just before Joey had to go pick up Rene they finally got done. When Joey knocked on Mai's door, he prayed that what he had written was going to be alright. Mai opened the door and when Joey came in he was really surprised to see all the envelopes that Rene had in a box and when he asked about what they were, she told him "They are the invitations to you and Tea's Wedding."

Joey smiled and kissed her and then he said "Mai, thank you for all you've done for Tea and Rene you are one really nice friend and then he kissed her cheek and then he and Serenity walked out and went to the car and he drove home.

The back yard was beautiful and everyone that Serenity sent an invitation to had written back that they would be coming to the Wedding. She was so happy and as she got ready she closed her eyes and she said "Mom, Dad today Joey is marrying the most beautiful woman and I love her and I know that you both love her too."

She opened the door when Mai knocked and as Mai fixed her hair she looked in the mirror and she couldn't believe what she saw, there looking back at her was someone who looked like a princess and she turned to Mai and she threw her arms around her and kissed her and said "Thank you for everything." Mai smiled and then she said "I have to go help Tea with her gown and fix her hair, see you later."

Tea was a nervous wreck and when Mai opened the door she nearly burst into tears. "I can't go through with this, I'm not good enough for him." Tea cried.

Mai laughed and said "Tea Marie stop it, you are going to marry Joey and live together forever. Now shall we get your gown on and then I can do your hair."

Joey was just as nervous as he was trying to tie his damn tie and he wasn't having any luck at all, then the door opened and in walked Solomon and he smiled a he walked up behind Joey and he reached around and he tied the tie and then he said "Joseph stop being so nervous, you remind me of your father on his Wedding Day."

Joey laughed and then they heard the music and he wanted to run, but Solomon said "Come on, your lovely bride to be awaits you."

Tristan knocked on the door and when Mai opened it she smiled and said "She's really nervous, but she's ready." Tristan smiled as she saw her in that beautiful gown and he said "You're a vision in white, let's go so that you can marry that man of yours."

Joey stood there beside Solomon and when he saw Tea walking along side of Tristan well he almost couldn't breathe because she was so beautiful in that gown. Tristan placed her hand in Joey's and then he said "You better make her happy, or I'll come back and kick your ass."

Joey smiled as he gently placed her hand in his and they turned towards the Minister and he said "Dearly Beloved, we are gathered her to join these two in holy matrimony. Each of them has written their vows and now I would like to ask Tea to read hers first."

Tea's Vows:

We have been friends for years, but I always loved you but was terrified what it would do to our friendship. Then one day it just happened, I looked your way and something in your glance to me that I might have a chance so I told you that I loved you and you smiled and kissed me and told me that you had always loved me too. Today I'm the happiest woman in the world, because not only do I have a best friend, I'm getting a husband and father of our children. I Tea Marie Gardner take you Joseph William Wheeler as my wedded husband, to have and to hold till death do us part.

"Now I would like Joseph to read his vows." The Minister said.

Joey's Vows:

I've walked around always looking for something but I never knew what it was till you came into my life. At first I thought that I was dreaming that someone as beautiful as you are could ever give me a second look, but you did and I will forever love you for wanting to become my friend, wife and mother of our children. I Joseph William Wheeler take you Tea Marie Gardner as my wedded wife, to have and to hold till death we do part.

When Joey was through the Minister said "Who gives these two people away?" Then everyone stood up and said "WE DO!" The Minister then said "By the power vested in my by the town of Domino, I pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss your bride."

Joey lifted Tea's veil and he kissed her and I mean it was one hell of a kiss. Everyone there cheered and clapped and then they held hands and as they went back inside the house, Serenity was there and she said "Welcome Home, Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Wheeler."

There was cake and ice cream and as everyone stood around they each told both Joey and Tea how glad that they were that they finally got married, including Seto and Mokuba Kaiba. Serenity then said "Alright, Mai says that the newly married couple has to dance the first dance together so Joey and Tea come on over here and dance together please. She then turned on the stereo and the song started and Joey dance with his bride.

The Keeper Of The Stars by Tracy Byrd

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heavens smiling down on me
As I look at you tonight

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doing
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
Ive got all Ill ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Soft moonlight on your face oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I dont deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude

So I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doing
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
Ive got all Ill ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew

When the song was over there wasn't a dry eye anywhere in the room. Then Rene said "My gift to my brother and his new wife is this, I'm staying with Mai for a couple of days so that they can have some privacy to do what married couples do when they first get married."

Both Joey and Tea turned beet red as the others laughed and then Serenity turned to Mai and she said "Did I say something wrong?"

Mai smiled at her and then she said "Hon, I'll explain it to you when you are a little older. Everyone lets all go and leave the happy couple alone." So one by one they all left and they all congratulated both Tea and Joey and when the last person left and they were alone, Tea looked at Joey and she said "I'm kind of scared, I'm a virgin and I don't know what to do."

Joey walked over and took her into his arms and he said "Tea, I'm scared too, but together we can figure out what to do and I bet we'll have lots of fun doing it." So long into the night they did just that, they discovered what it meant to be married and they loved every minute of it. As they laid in each others arms, Joey said "I really think that it was the keeper of the stars that brought us together." Tea kissed him and they fell asleep together.

At Mai's, Serenity said "I'm so glad that Joey and Tea finally got together because they deserve to have happiness and it was because of them that I found the courage to discover my own happiness. It was really the keeper of the stars that brought Tea to Joey and he gave Joey the strength to help me fight and find my way back."
