Chapter Eighteen

Everyone was up at dawn, and downstairs the staff was busy helping to get everything ready for the Weddings.

Joey was outside watching the sunrise and as he stood there, he heard the door open and he knew that it was Seto. As Seto stood behind Joey, he put his arms around him and drew him against this body and he whispered, "I love you."

Joey turned around and as he put his arms around Seto's neck, he kissed him and said, "I love you too. Isn't the sunrise beautiful?"

Inside they could hear the sounds of people working to get everything done, and Joey said, "We should get inside and help, it's our wedding too and if Mary and Roland can help so can we."

They went inside and they had to laugh, there was Mokie, Daniel and Lisa and they were all there helping and so Seto and Joey went over to Belinda and they asked, "What can we do?"

Soon everything was ready, the Minister had just arrived and as they, all went to their rooms to get ready.

Robert stood beside his wife and he said, "My brother's getting married, I always hoped that he would ask Mary, they are meant to be together and as for Seto, well the day that Joey came back was the best day for this entire family."

Then Belinda said, "You better get upstairs and make sure that Roland, Seto, Joey, Daniel, Mokuba and of course yourself are dressed and ready, I'll go upstairs and make sure that Mary, Lisa and myself are ready." The she kissed his cheek, and they both went upstairs.

Since Mokuba was walking his mom down the stairs to get married, and Lisa was the flower girl, well Daniel felt left out, so he asked Joey, "Can I walk you down the stairs, everyone has something to do except for me."

Joey smiled and held out his hand and when Daniel put his in Joey's, Joey said, "I'd be honored if you walked me down the stairs."

Robert opened the door and he said, "Is everyone about ready?"

Roland tried for the fourth time to tie his tie and he was about to throw it out the window, when Robert went over and he said, "Here, let me do it, before this poor thing meets its death."

Roland laughed and as Robert tied the tie, Roland said, "I've done everything from building a shed to sewing up Seto's eye, but right now I think I'm going to hurl."

Robert laughed and the said, "I remember the feeling, but once you put that ring on Mary's hand, it'll all be worth this, you'll see."

Belinda walked into the room where Mary was getting dressed and as she opened the door, tears filled her eyes, there before her was the most beautiful sight, Mary was dressed in her gown and she was helping Lisa with her hair.

Belinda then walked over to them and she said, "Ladies, I think it's about time." Mary stood up and looked at herself one last time and she said, "I'm ready, I think."

Then there was a knock on the door and when Belinda opened it, there stood Mokuba and he was so handsome. "Is mom ready, it's time." Mokie said.

Belinda and Lisa left the room to get in position, and when Mokie saw Mary, tears filled his eyes. "Mom you're beautiful." He said.

Mary smiled at him and she kissed his cheek and she said, "Thank you kind sir, and may I say that you're very handsome."

Mokie giggled and then he offered her his arm and he said, "Its time."

They went to the head of the stairs and there stood Joey and Daniel and as the music started the four of them descended the stairs and when they got to the bottom, both Mary and Joey were nearly in tears, because there ahead of them were the men they were about to marry.

Mokie escorted Mary to Roland and as he placed her hand in his father's he said, "I love you both."

Roland smiled down at his son and he said, "We love you too."

Daniel escorted Joey to where Seto was and as he put Joey's hand in Seto's, Daniel said, "You're both more like my older brothers then cousins and I love you both."

Both Joey and Seto had tears in their eyes when Daniel said that, and they both told him, "We love you too."

Then the Minister said, "Dearly beloved, we are here to join these four people in holy wedlock. Who gives these people away?"

Everyone from Robert and his family to the entire staff said, "We do."

Then the Minister went on to say, "Each of them have written their own vows, so I'll as Mary to read hers first:

Mary's Vows:

As I stand here looking into the eyes of the man I'm about to marry, I think back to when we first met and how I knew then that we'd be together forever. You've given me your love and now I'm returning it to you.

I Mary Elizabeth Lawrence, take you Roland Douglas O'Brien as my wedded husband to have and to hold until death us do part.

Roland's Vows:

As I stand here looking into the eyes of the woman I'm going to marry, I too remember when we first met, and how I knew that you were the one who would be my love forever.

You are the reason I get up and face everyday, it is your love and strength that has made my life complete and for that I will give you my love.

I Roland Douglas O'Brien take you Mary Elizabeth Lawrence as my wedded wife, to have and to hold until death us do part.

Now it was Joey's turn to read his vows.

Joey's Vows:

When I came back to Domino, I was looking for something to complete my life, and I found it in Seto. A very beautiful angel once told me, "Find the other part of your heart and you'll be happy for the rest of your life."

Well she was right; I found the other part of my heart when I found Seto. He has given me his love, his trust, and most of all he gave me a reason to live.

I Joseph William Wheeler take you Seto Eugene Kaiba as my life mate, to have and to hold until death us do part.

Seto's Vows:

I have been searching for a long time for the one person who could make my life complete, and when Joey came back into my life, I knew that I found that person.

Joey has given me his love, his trust, and most of all the reason for me to believe in miracles.

I Seto Eugene Kaiba take you Joseph William Wheeler as my life mate, to have and to hold until death us do part.

Then the Minister asked for the rings and when Mokie and Robert handed the rings to the Minister, he said, "Repeat after me, "With this ring I thee wed. This is a symbol of my love and I will forever be yours.

After they both repeated the words, the Minister then said, "I now pronounce you husband and wife, and life mates."

Everyone, I want to introduce you to, Roland and Mary O'Brien and Seto and Joseph Kaiba, may your love last till the end of time."

Everyone stood up and cheered, and then Belinda said, "Now it's time to party."

Everyone followed the happy couples to the ball room, where it had been decorated for this very moment.

As they all went and sat down, Belinda said, "Mary has requested a song for her and Roland to dance to and so without further ado, here is the song:

Because You Loved Me by Celion Dion

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through, through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through, through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

When the song ended, and Mary and Roland sat down, Belinda then said, "And now here is the song that Seto requested. So get up you two and dance.

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 Seto and Joey sat down, Robert said, "Both Belinda and I and of course our two kids have loved being here with you, and now that the Wedding is over, we really would like to go home.

Belinda has spoken to both Roland and Mary and Mokuba is coming home with them, because his parents and brother and Joey need time alone, so until the honeymoon is over, the staff, Mokie and all of us are going to leave the four of you alone.

You'll have to do for yourselves, and don't do anything that we wouldn't do."

Everyone laughed, Belinda turned bright red and as for Mokuba, Daniel and Lisa, well it went completely over their heads.

So from a lonely existence for Seto, today is the first day of his life with Joey.

Mary looked at Roland who winked at her and she laughed as they watched the cars pull out of the Manor.

As the door closes, you can bet that everyone is going to have one hell of a great time…
