Well, I never thought I'd say this, but this is the final chapter of this story. This actually does mean something positive to me at least, this is the very first story (an actual story, not a one shot) that I've completed. It actually makes me wanna cry because I'm so used to updating this story all the time. At least I can do that with the sequel. Thanks for those who read this story and liked it a lot...I'm really glad everyone did. Thanks to all who have been reading since chapter one and I really appreciate it!
Oh yeah, I know I kind of lied about this being done in September but I've been really busy with school and I have a life...soooo yeah...sorry about not updating sooner.
It was now the day before the wedding. Everyone's morning was great...well, everyone's except Luna's. She had to get up early that morning and drive back to the mansion to make sure the set up crew was doing their job, along with making calls and such.
"Gosh, I feel so bad for Luna. She's been up since five this morning." Suzuki said, as the girls were watching a movie.
"The last text she sent me was that while Yusei and I are out with my parents, they should be delivering out dresses to the hotel." Akiza added, anxiously.
"Don't worry, babe, I'll make sure I get the dresses, especially yours." Sam told her, embracing her.
"I know, it's just I'm anxious about the wedding." Akiza groaned, sighing.
"Don't worry your pretty little head off. You go get ready and have fun with your hubby to be." Sam replied, gently shoving her cousin towards the bathroom.
"Oh yeah, I've been meaning to ask you, Sam, how is it that you're a CFC fighter and a wardrobe stylist?" Suzuki asked, curiously.
"I do fashion stuff on the side, when I'm not training." Sam responded, turning her gaze to her other cousin, "Let's talk, Demi."
"Huh?" Demi muttered, softly.
"I saw you and Crow the other night." Sam commented, smirking.
"Okay." Demi mumbled, messing with a strand of her dark hair.
"It seemed you two were having a good time when his hands were on your hips." Sam said, lying on the closet bed next to Demi's.
"Please, Sam, can we not talk about that?" Demi asked, quietly
"No, I'm not gonna let you sweet talk me or yourself out of this. Demi, there are guys, hot ones who aren't your type, that have asked you out over the last few years and you've rejected all of them. Now here's a guy who is your type, and you won't give him the time of day. Everyone else see's that Crow is crushing on you. Why don't you give the guy a chance?" Sam asked, seriously.
"You don't understand, Sam. I really don't know if I want to be in a relationship because I'm...scared...of getting hurt. I've seen you get your heartbroken so many times that I don't want that to happen to me." Demi muttered, looking down at her lap.
"Oh, honey, why didn't you say something? You can't go around thinking every guy is the same as the ones that I dated before. I can tell you that Crow is nothing like guys I've dated. He may be awkward looking, but he's sweet in his own way." Sam explained, trying to comfort Demi.
"I guess. I just wish he'd ask me out already." Demi murmurred, still sounding upset.
"He will. You just have to be patient." Sam said, hearing Akiza come out the bathroom.
"You don't think this sundress is a little too saucy do you?" Akiza asked, messing with her turquoise dress.
"You look hot. Plus, it's just your parents. No need to worry." Sam replied, looking over Akiza's outfit, "The straight hair was a nice touch."
"Thanks. Well, I'm off. Make sure the dresses get up here." Akiza reminded Sam, grabbing her purse and keys before walking out the suite.
"Have fun." Carly said, before she shut the door.
"Hi honey!" Mrs. Izinski chirped, hugging her daughter.
"It's good to see you, dear." Mr. Izinski greeted, hugging her, "It's good to see you too, Yusei."
"A pleasure to see you again, Mr. Izinski." Yusei said, shaking his hand.
"Come, we got a table." Mrs. Izinski added, as the couple followed her, "I can't believe our baby's getting married tomorrow."
"Mom...," Akiza murmurred, sitting down.
"Are you two excited?" Mrs. Izinski asked, just before picking up a menu.
Before answering, Akiza and Yusei looked at each other for a moment. "Actually, I think we're both a little nervous." Akiza replied, shyly.
"Oh don't worry, sweetie, that's normal. I remember the day your father and I got married. I threw up all morning." Mrs. Izinski babbled, smiling.
"Thanks, Mom." Akiza mumbled, holding Yusei's hand under the table.
"Can I get you all anything?" The waitor asked, interrupting the awkward conversation. What Yusei noticed was that the waitor was eyeballing him, in a way that gave the impression that he was attracted to him.
"I'll have the grilled salmon with spicy rice, and a glass of hard lemonade." Mrs. Izinski responded, trying not to laugh at the situation.
"I'll have the parmesean steak sandwich with shrimp, and a glass of coke." Akiza added, handing her menu to the waitor without him noticing her laughter.
"Can I get the gentlemen anything?" The waitor questioned, giving flirty eyes at Yusei.
"I just want a glass of water." Yusei said, quickly.
"I'll have what my wife is having." Mr. Izinski added, not understanding why his wife and daughter were laughing.
"Brb!" The waitor chirped, walking away with a little swirve.
"Oh my God, I can't believe that happened." Akiza laughed, along with her mother.
"What was so funny?" Mr. Izinski asked, sounding clueless.
"You didn't see it? The waitor was completely checking Yusei out." Akiza replied, continuing to laugh.
"That's not funny, it was highly uncomfortable." Yusei muttered, rolling his eyes.
"Awww, I'm sorry." Akiza said, holding his head close to her.
"Here he comes." Mrs. Izinski muttered, as the waitor approached their table.
"Here's the hard lemonade and coke for the ladies, hard lemonade for the elderly man, and water with a slice of lemon for you." The waitor said, smiling, "I'm just dying to know are you single?"
Akiza and everyone else at the table was in shock by his question. Akiza could tell from Yusei's face that he was really pissed off.
"Ummm, actually, I don't date guys." Yusei said, politely.
"I'm his fiance, and we're actually getting married tomorrow." Akiza added, sweetly.
"Oh, really? You're a lucky girl. Congratulations to you both." The waitor replied, leaving quickly.
"I think you two might have hurt his feelings." Mrs. Izinski muttered, sipping her lemonade.
"It's not our fault. At least we were polite. The way he was looking at Yusei, there was no way I was letting go of my man...I mean, my future husband." Akiza said, avoiding her dad's look.
"Are you going to eat, Yusei?" Mr. Izinski asked, trying to change the subject.
"No, I think that guy ruined my appetite." Yusei responded, sipping his water.
"You can have half my steak sandwich." Akiza whispered, kissing his cheek.
Back at the mansion, Luna was busy monitoring set up and such in their huge yard.. So far everything was great. At one end of the yard, all the tables for the reception were properly set up, the white and lavender flower arch the priest would stand over looked fantastic, the white chairs for the wedding were really elegant as well.
"Okay, the caterer is dropping the food off during the wedding, the violin quintet is coming at one, the flowers should get to the mansion in the morning, the guests should arrive from one-thirty to two-forty five at the latest, and Mitch and Tabias should be arriving today in a half hour." Luna listed, mumbling it more to herself. While she was still organizing her list, she got a text from Akiza about her lunch with her parents.
OMG! Yusei got hit on by our waitor! I felt so bad for the waitor :( He was crushed when I told him we were getting married.
(A/N: By the way, I DO NOT have a problem with people who are gay. Most of my friends are gay guys and they are pretty freaking AWESOME!)
Luna smiled to herself. She text back saying...
Awwww, poor Yusei :( Is he okay?
"Hey, chica!" Mitch said, appearing behind Luna.
"Hey!" Luna greeted, hugging her two guy friends.
"We got the stuff out front." Tabias told her, after hugging her.
"Yeah, but you have to bring it up the package lift from the first floor. Don't worry, it holds 4 tons." Luna told them, as the two guys went off to get their equiptment. After a few seconds, she got another text from Akiza...
Yeah, he's fine. We're on our way back to the hotel...are you still at the mansion?
Luna smiled at the question. It made her feel happy that someone was concerned that she was so busy...
Yeah. Everything's great! I can't wait till you guys see it. Mitch and Tabias are setting up band stuff in a little bit. All that I need to do after this is coordinate the wedding. I'll be back at the hotel in about forty-five minutes.
I really need a life, Luna thought, sitting down in one of the chairs.
"Hi, I'm back." Akiza said, opening the door to the girls' suite.
"How was lunch with my aunt and uncle?" Sam asked, popping her head out of the bathroom door.
"It was fun, besides the fact that another guy found my fiance attractive." Akiza replied, taking her shoes off.
"Oh yeah, Luna texted us about that." Suzuki said, smiling.
"I felt so bad for that waitor though. It's like we sabotaged his hope of finding someone." Akiza muttered, trying not to smile.
"Well, at least you guys weren't rude to him." Carly told her, trying to make her feel better.
"Yeah. Luna told me that everything at the mansion is going great." Akiza added, changing the subject.
"That's good. Along with that, the dresses came." Demi added, going to closet and pulled out the box the dresses came in.
"We want you to open it." Sam said, handing Akiza a pair of scissors.
After taking the scissors and opening the package, Akiza was amazed at the sight of her dress. She had seen an exact replica at the bridal shop, but here was her own dress.
"It's so beautiful." Demi gasped, as Akiza held it by the white silk hanger.
"I know, and I get to wear it tomorrow." Akiza smiled, putting her dress in the closet.
"I really like the dark purple bridesmaid dresses." Carly said, handing the other girls the purple dresses.
"I'll get Luna's dress." Suzuki mumbled, taking the hanger that had Luna's tag on it.
"So, how long till the putt putt rehearsal dinner?" Sam asked, lying across her bed.
"Well, it doesn't start until seven, it's only about two and a half hours away." Akiza told her, looking at the digital clock, "And sit up, we don't want to see your boobs."
"You know they're hot." Sam said, sitting up.
"I'm back." Luna groaned, shutting the door to the suite.
"You look exhausted. Good the wedding is tomorrow so you don't have to plan anything else." Akiza told her, before shutting the bathroom door.
"So, what are you wearing to putt putt?" Suzuki asked Luna, eating a bag of Skittles.
"My brown Ugg boots, black leggings, kelly green dress with my cream three-quarter inch shirt, and my peace necklace Dexter got me for Valentine's Day." Luna told her, as she took the clothes she listed out her suitcase.
"One more time...'Demi, will you go out with me?'...," Yusei said, trying to help Crow practice asking Demi out.
"Okay...'Demi...will...you...g...go...'...awww, I can't do it." Crow sighed, lying back on his bed.
"If you keep saying you can't do it, then you'll never be able to. Then she'll find some other attractive, available guy to date." Yusei told him, seeing if it would make him mad.
"Yeah, Yusei may have a point. There are plenty of available men out there who are possibly better looking than you she might be interested in." Jack added, playing along with Yusei.
"What are you trying to say, Jack!" Crow growled, balling his fists.
"He's saying you need to get a move on before she get's snatched up." Leo replied, walking out the bathroom with a towel wrapped around his waist.
"For once, the boy is right." Jack agreed, plainly.
"Can't I just wait until tomorrow to ask her? When we can be alone?" Crow asked, getting annoyed with the guys.
"Fine." The guys agreed, leaving the situation at that.
"Luna! Where did you put my makeup bag?" Suzuki asked, walking around in her hotel bath robe.
"I'm using it, if you didn't mind." Luna said, while putting on charcoal eyeliner.
"Okay." Suzuki mumbled, going back in the bathroom.
"I swear everyday I'm turning into you." Akiza said, brushing her hair. She wore a red plaid dress with a black short sleeve shirt underneath, faded black super skinny jeans, and cute black boots.
"You look cute." Sam cooed, pinching her cousin's cheek.
"Stop, you're messing up my makeup." Akiza whined, flicking Sam.
"Oh, I dressed Demi up. I mean, she has such excellent taste, but she never wears any of the super cute clothes she buys. Her mom makes her wear all those business clothes and super fancy dresses." Sam pointed out, sadly.
"You know Demi doesn't really pay that much attention to her outfit like we do. She's just not used to it." Akiza replied, putting on very thin lines of eyeliner.
"Why do you put so little eyeliner on?" Sam asked, getting Demi from the other room.
"Yusei thinks I look really cute with little makeup on." Akiza told her, smiling.
"You guys are getting married tomorrow, and you act like you're a new couple." Carly pointed out, laughing to herself.
"I know, right?" Suzuki questioned, putting on her lip balm.
"Come on, Demi, show Akiza how cute you look." Sam begged, gently dragging her younger cousin in front of everyone.
"Does my outfit look okay?" Demi asked, shyly. She was wearing a black and grey striped long sleeve shirt with a soft, black vest, a cute flowy black skirt, and black chucks.
"You look really cute." Suzuki admitted, as she finished wrapping her teal, hot pink, and neon yellow around her neck.
"I think Crow has a little eye candy to look at tonight." Luna whispered, making Demi blush.
"I see blushing." Sam teased, hugging her cousin.
"Leave me alone. You guys are so persistent." Demi giggled, rolling her eyes.
"Let's hit it, bitches!" Sam shouted, grabbing her purse.
"Whoa! Are you guys going to a fashion show instead?" Leo asked, checking out the girls.
"No, boo, we're going to kick your asses at putt putt." Suzuki told him, giving him smooch. Behind them, Jack narrowed his eyes at Suzuki and she cut the kiss short.
"Hi, baby." Akiza whispered, kissing her fiance, "This is the last time we get to call each other fiance."
"I know." Yusei told her, rubbing her arm.
"Are you guys gonna make out or play some putt putt?" Luna asked, getting a look from Yusei.
"I'm not gonna even answer that question." Yusei told her, still glaring at her.
"Good, I didn't want an answer." Luna smirked, as everyone went to the booth. Once everyone got putts and balls, everyone started on the first hole.
"Let the master go first." Jack gloated, putting his ball down.
"Yeah, let the master of sucking go first." Leo muttered, as him and Dexter started laughing.
"Can you believe it's been almost three years since we've been together?" Akiza asked, while everyone else went ahead of them, "I feel like we just got together."
"That's exactly how I feel. It's like I just met the vicious version of you, but now I see the real you." Yusei told her, cupping her chin.
"It was because of you that I could be myself. We bring out the best in each other." Akiza agreed, hugging him, "You give me so much unconditional love, that it makes me fall more deeply in love with you."
"The feeling's mutual." Yusei whispered, rubbing her back.
"Really, are you gonna be lovey-dovey or are you gonna play?" Luna asked, sighing.
"We're coming, Queen Luna." Akiza said, rolling her eyes.
"More like Queen Snob." Yusei mumbled, chuckling.
"I heard that." Luna said, taking her turn, "Yay! A hole in one."
"That sounded so wrong." Suzuki told her, popping her gum.
"Why are teenagers so dirty now a days?" Carly asked, taking her turn.
"I'm the wrong person to ask." Jack muttered, sighing.
After going through the putt putt course a couple times, everyone decided to get food and take a break. At this time, Akiza met up with her mother and her grandma.
"Hi, are you having fun?" Mrs. Izinski asked, hugging her daughter.
"Yeah. Yusei, this is my grandma, Maria Cartwright. Grandma, this is my fiance, Yusei Fudo." Akiza said, happily.
"You really are as handsome as Akiza said you were." Mrs. Cartwright told him, making Yusei blush a little, "I can tell how much you make my granddaughter happy."
"That's all I aim to do." Yusei replied, wrapping an arm around Akiza.
"Oh, Yusei, dear, do you mind if we talk to Akiza alone for a moment?" Mrs. Izinski asked, sweetly.
"Of course. We'll be over...somewhere." Yusei responded, following Kalin and the others.
"What did you want to talk about, mom?" Akiza asked, once Yusei was gone.
"I just wanted to tell that your grandma and I have been talking and we're just really proud of you, honey. You've come such a long way from when you were a little girl." Mrs. Izinski said, as her voice started to crack.
"Oh, Momma." Akiza said, watching her mom cry.
"It's just, I'm so happy that you're getting married and getting your life together." Mrs. Izinski added, wiping her eyes.
"What your mother is trying to say, dear, is that it's been a joy to see you grow up and we're really proud of you." Mrs. Cartwright said, patting Akiza's hand.
"Thanks, Grandma." Akiza told her, smiling.
After everyone was tired of playing putt putt and eating endless food, the gang decided to go back to the hotel for the night. No one forgot that the next twelve plus hours were going to be hectic and busy, but yet it was a time of joy and happiness.
"We'll be getting ready for bed. Grandma and your mom are in the room next door." Sam told Akiza, while the girls and the guys parted ways in the lobby. All the guys except Yusei.
Once everyone was gone, Akiza and Yusei embraced each other. It would be the last time until she walked down the isle that they would see each other. Though it wasn't a big deal, it made Akiza sad that she had to part ways from the man she loved.
"I don't wanna let go." Akiza whispered, nuzzling her face on his shoulder.
"We have to. We can't be boyfriend and girlfriend forever. Tomorrow will be the best day of our lives. I'm glad I get to be with you." Yusei said, holding her face in his hands.
"I love you...with every last bit of my heart." Akiza replied, as their lips met. It was passionate. Not in the I-want-to-do-it passionate, but the one that meant I love you so much.
"Te amo, Akiza." Yusei said, sweetly, while embracing a little bit longer.
"Te quiéro, Yusei." Akiza whispered, taking in his warmth before getting on the elevator. She had once last glance of his blue eyes.
Hasta mañana. That was their last thought before the elevator doors shut.
(A/N: This is the last time I'll interrupt the story. I'm taking Spanish in school right now and we did an activity where we used an online translator and I really wanted to use what I learned in this chapter. I'm a little sure that Te amo and Te quiéro both mean I love you...if I'm wrong please correct me.)
The big day finally arrived. A gorgeous Saturday morning in October. It may have been a little chilly outside, but that didn't even remotely stop Luna from getting the wedding together. Again, she woke up earlier than everyone else. She imagined that everyone else was still sleep and her checklist was still far from done.
"Gosh! The lavender pots need to be on both sides of the arch! Okay, please don't knock the chairs over!" Luna barked, shouting orders while answering phone calls, "No, Tabias, we're doing mic check and sound checks before the toast...and please make sure Mitch wears purple. Gotta go, bye."
I hope this is the best wedding ever, Luna thought, sitting in an extra chair.
Around eleven that morning, Akiza woke up with the sun shining through the patio windows of the suite. It was the day she would be a wife.
"Good morning, sunshine!" Sam chirped, smiling at her cousin, "Are you excited?"
"I...think so." Akiza muttered, not understanding why all of a sudden she felt nervous, "Oh no."
"What's wrong?" Sam asked, yawning.
"I'm starting to get nervous. I feel like I'm gonna puke!" Akiza exclaimed, holding her stomach.
"No, you're not. Calm down...breathe, honey." Sam told her, soothingly, "Breakfast is coming in just a few."
"Okay...oh, Sam, I'm scared!" Akiza wailed, burying her face in her cousin's chest.
"Oh, sweetie." Sam replied, patting Akiza's head.
"What's wrong?" Carly questioned, coming out of the bathroom.
"She's getting cold feet." Sam responded, holding her cousin.
"Aww, Akiza." Suzuki muttered, sounding partially sad and happy, "Didn't you say that Jack got a hold of you this morning?"
"Oh, yeah. He told me that...you know who...isn't nervous at all." Carly said, not bringing up Yusei's name for Akiza's sake.
"I can't eat...," Akiza mumbled, sighing.
"Honey, you have to eat something. Once we get to the mansion and get ready, you'll feel a little better." Sam suggested, letting go of her, "Well, let's get all our stuff packed up so we can check out after breakfast."
"Too late, breakfast is already here." Mrs. Izinski said, as two men wheeled in two carts that had their breakfast on it.
"Thank you." Akiza said, quietly. Not touching her breakfast, she continued to put her clothes and such back in her suitcase.
"Honey, you've got to eat." Mrs. Izinski insisted, soothingly.
"I'll eat when I'm done." Akiza replied, while her mom hugged and kissed her. She only hoped that nothing would go wrong later on.
While the guys were just arriving at the mansion, Luna greeted them quickly before going back making sure everything was coordinated and going smoothly.
"I really don't get how you're not nervous. I mean, I wouldn't be in tears, but I'd at least pee my pants before I act all calm like you are." Jack told Yusei, rolling his eyes.
"I'm taking bets to see how long until he cracks." Kalin said, getting a humorous look from Yusei.
"Guys, seriously, I'm fine. I'm marrying someone I love in four hours. There's nothing to be nervous about." Yusei replied, while they located themselves in Yusei's guest room.
"I have ten that he's gonna crack before this shindig starts." Kalin added, getting Yusei's mean glare.
"Shut up, Kalin." Yusei responded, pushing him out of his way.
"Come on, guys, we shouldn't pick on Yusei while he's under the weather. I mean, wouldn't you feel the same if you were getting married?" Dexter asked, making the guys quiet for a minute.
"See, you can't hang out with us. You're too much of a softee for me." Jack said, breaking the silence.
"Don't worry, it's probably Luna rubbing off on him." Leo added, patting Dexter's shoulder.
At about one that afternoon, Akiza and the girls arrived at the mansion. During the ride, Akiza threw up at least three different times, so after the third time Sam took the drivers seat of Akiza's car and got them there without fail.
"Well, this is it." Akiza said, as they shut the car door.
"After today it's no more Akiza Izinski...more like Akiza Fudo." Sam told her, smiling, "You'll be fine, honey, I know you will."
"Yeah, Akiza. This is one of the happiest days of your life...be sure to celebrate it." Demi added, smiling.
"Oh, here comes Luna." Suzuki pointed out, watching Luna walk towards them.
"Good, you're all here...come now, we don't have all day. We're on a tight schedule." Luna said, rushing them inside, while answering calls on her earpiece, "No no no! The violin quartet is on the right where the guys will stand!"
While Luna was rushing them to the master bedroom of the mansion, Akiza thought about what she was about to do. She was going to commit herself to Yusei, the man who loved and adored her for who she is. Was she making the right choice? Of course she was. Did she really love him? With all her heart.
Why am I so nervous though? Akiza thought, sighing. After they were through the door of the master bedroom, Luna quickly shut the door behind her, causing Akiza to snap out of her thoughts.
"Okay, so pretty much I'm assuming you took showers at the hotel. There's makeup and hair stuff on the vanity and the dresses are on the bed. Please do your makeup before you put the dresses on so that they're not ruined. Thanks!" Luna chirped, just before stepping outside.
"How is she going to get ready?" Carly asked, curiously.
"You'll be surprised if you knew how fast Luna can get things done." Suzuki replied, putting her purse down.
"Let's do this, chicas." Sam said, taking her bridesmaid dress off the hanger with her name on it.
"Come on, Akiza, I'll do your hair." Demi offered, grabbing the heated curling iron.
"I guess once I get all beautified, I'll probably feel better." Akiza muttered, as her cousin started curling her hair.
"How are we all doing our hair?" Suzuki asked, taking her street clothes off.
"Ummm, Luna said straight for the bridesmaids and curls for the bride." Carly told her, starting on her makeup.
"Only an hour and a half to go." Sam said, looking at her cell phone.
Meanwhile, Yusei was busy putting on his lavender colored tie with his dark purple dress shirt. Though he particularly didn't like purple, it was Akiza's idea for the wedding to be a purple colored theme, so he didn't mind too much.
"How's the man of the soon to be hour?" Jack asked, slapping Yusei's back.
"Fine, until your hand came in contact with my back." Yusei replied, rubbing his back.
"I still don't believe you're not nervous." Jack said, sighing.
"If you want to know the truth, I am nervous." Yusei muttered, finally fixing his tie the right way, "I love her, but in the back of my head I keep thinking am I making the right decision."
"Not that I'm a softee, but let me ask you this. If you didn't love her, would you be standing here right now?" Jack asked, leaving Yusei in the room by himself.
He makes a good point. I really wouldn't be here if I didn't love her, Yusei thought, letting out a long sigh, Why do wedding's have to be so nerve wrecking?
After putting on his tuxedo jacket, Yusei headed downstairs with the rest of the guys. While he was down there, he saw Luna and Carly carrying the boxes with the flowers. That was the first time he'd seen what the bridesmaid dresses. They were a perfect match to the guys dress shirts.
"Leo, come on, tuck in your shirt." Luna told him, hitting him in the arm as she moved onto Dexter, "You're just perfect."
"Not nearly as perfect as your are." Dexter responded, wrapping his arms around her waist.
"Hey, Dexter, you got a little something on your shoe." Yusei said, pointing at Dexter's face. Before Dexter could look down, Yusei slapped him in the back of his head.
"Ow." Dexter groaned, rubbing his head.
"Stop it." Luna added, glaring at Yusei.
"Don't look at me like that. It's my day today, so your little smooching will have to wait until tomorrow." Yusei told her, narrowing his eyes at her.
"Or until you're gone." Luna mumbled, fixing Dexter's tie, "Oh and this is for your tux."
As he stood still, Luna pinned a white rose to his tuxedo pocket. After stepping back, she sighed to herself, "I can't believe my best friends are getting married."
"I know. I don't believe it either." Yusei admitted, nodding at her, "Are...are you crying, Luna?"
"No...it's a figment of your imagination." Luna replied, letting tears come down her face.
"Ah, Luna." Yusei smiled, hugging the fifteen year old.
"Don't cry, Luna." Carly added, holding her.
"Did I tell you were hot in that bridesmaid dress?" Jack asked, making Luna laugh, "What's so funny? I was dead serious."
"Okay, first, no offense Carly, but no cares if she looks hot in the damn dress. Second, the only person who's supposed to be worth recognizing is Akiza." Yusei told him, smirking at him.
"That is true, but thank you for complimenting my dress." Carly agreed, hugging Jack.
"Oh yeah, here's your guys flowers." Luna interrupted, handing Carly and Jack white roses, "Gotta go do my makeup."
It was just about ten minutes before the wedding, and guests were arriving in huge chunks. While Akiza was looking out the window, she saw some of her relatives and surprisingly, she saw Martha sitting next to her mother and grandma. She knew that Yusei would be happy to see her. As she enjoyed looking at guests arriving, she realized she had to go to the bathroom.
"Oh shit! I have to fucking pee!" Akiza shouted, causing all the girls to turn around.
"What?" Demi asked, sounding shocked.
"Sweetie, we have like ten minutes until you walk...are you sure you can't hold it?" Sam asked, starting to panic.
"No, I can't hold it! Someone unzip me!" Akiza yelled, as Luna rolled over the bed and unzipped Akiza's dress. Within seconds, Akiza rushed into the bathroom, did her business, and dashed back out.
"Are you good?" Suzuki asked, calmly.
"Yup." Akiza muttered, jumping back into her dress.
"Here's your bouquet." Demi mumbled, handing it to her.
"Your dad is downstairs." Luna told her, quietly.
Okay, Akiza, this is your time to shine. Be strong and don't worry, Akiza thought, sighing. After watching Luna and the other girls walk downstairs, she looked out the window. She waiting for Luna to give her the signal. At the moment, she assumed that Carly and Jack and the other pairs were walking down the aisle.
"Okay, come on." Luna whispered, rushing downstairs so that she and Dexter could walk with the others.
As Akiza got to the foot of the stairs, she saw her father standing there. It nearly brought tears to her eyes. She never really had a close relationship with her father and here he was walking her down the aisle.
"I never thought this would happen. I'm just so shocked, but I'm glad because now, I can say that I've walked my daughter down the aisle." Mr. Izinski said, watching his daughter.
"Thank you, Daddy." Akiza cried, hugging her father, despite the tears. Taking a few deep breaths, Akiza intertwined her arm with her father's. As soon as she stepped through the threshold, she noticed everyone stood up.
Okay, I'm walking...walking...and walking. I'm okay..., Akiza thought, calmly while holding her bouquet really tight. She felt like she was going to pass out but as she got closer and closer to the alter.
While Yusei was standing there, he was sweating like no other. He spent the entire time literally dabbing the sweat off his face.
"Do I have to get you a bucket for all that sweat?" Jack whispered, trying not to laugh with Crow.
"Shut the hell up, Jack!" Yusei muttered, just before he felt even more sick, "I think I'm gonna throw up."
"Just breathe." Leo suggested, noticing that Akiza was already at the altar, "Oh, too late now."
Once Akiza was at the altar, she hugged her dad, but she wouldn't let go of his arm. He gently tried to pull his arm away, and to Akiza's displeasure, finally got away from her.
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate this man, and this woman in holy matrimony." The priest said, putting a smile on his face.
Okay...really hurry up buddy! I just want to marry my husband and get on with it so I don't throw up on him, Akiza thought, while gently grasping Yusei's hand.
"Akiza, do you take Yusei to be your lawfully wedded husband?" The priest questioned, looking at her.
"I do." Akiza said, crying at the same time she was putting his wedding band on his finger.
"Yusei, do you take Akiza to be your lawfully wedded wife?" The priest asked, still smiling.
"I do." He answered, putting her ring on. He could hear family members crying and sniffing in the background.
"I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss your bride." The priest said, keeping the same smile.
As the two kissed, everyone shared a mixture of awws, cheers, and crying. After their kiss, all Akiza and Yusei could do was giggle.
"What's so funny?" Jack asked, ruining the moment.
"It's a husband and wife thing." Leo told him, patting his back.
"Mr. and Mrs. Fudo everyone." Luna said, smiling at them.
Two years later...
It was crisp Friday evening in November. The gang was hanging out at Luna and Leo's mansion as usual. Leo and Dexter were doing their homework while Yusei, Jack, Carly, and Suzuki were watching T.V.
"Wow, who knew T.V. could be so boring." Suzuki muttered, sighing.
"Don't you have homework?" Jack asked, staring at her.
"Yeah, but I never said that I'd do it." Suzuki told him, getting his death glare, "Okay, I'll go do it."
"So, how's the packing process going?" Yusei asked Jack, chewing on a piece of watermelon.
"It's fine. I just hope we'll be settled before Carly's birthday." Jack told him, rubbing Carly's back.
"We can only try." Carly said, messing with his hair.
While everyone was randomly doing what they wanted, Akiza was in the kitchen with Luna talking about a subject that could really change her marriage with Yusei.
"Come on, Akiza, don't be scared. Yusei loves you. You two have been married for two years." Luna whispered, putting a comforting arm around her friend.
"I'm not really scared, I'm just anxious because I'm not sure what his reaction would be." Akiza told her, sighing. She casually walked out of the kitchen and into the living room to her husband.
"Hey, what's wrong?" Yusei asked, noticing his wife's facial expression.
"I'll make you a margarita if you want." Suzuki offered, nicely.
"No thanks." Akiza mumbled, sitting in Yusei's lap, "You know I love you."
"Yes, I do. Now tell me what's bothering you." Yusei insisted, holding her.
"I just found out that I'm...pregnant." Akiza said, as the entire room got quiet...dead quiet. However, instead of an arguement like Akiza expected, Yusei's immediate reaction was a kiss.
"Wait, why aren't you...," Akiza started, before Yusei cut her off.
"I love you so much...and I can't believe you thought that I'd be mad." Yusei told her, hugging her tightly.
"Yusei, you're hurting me." Akiza murmurred, patting his back.
"How long have you known?" Yusei asked, happily.
"Since last Monday...after we...," Akiza drifted, shyly.
"Okay, really, now is not the time to talk about how you guys were doing it." Luna said, shuddering, "Anyway, I'm really happy for you guys."
"Yeah, me too. I wonder if it's going to be a boy." Leo added, smiling.
"Or it could be a girl." Carly commented, shrugging, "I'm happy for you guys too."
"I guess it's pretty cool that I'm gonna be an uncle...a little baby Fudo on the way to teach my skills to." Jack said, smirking.
"You're not teaching my baby how to be an ass hole." Yusei told him, rolling his eyes.
"So, what are you hoping it'll be, Akiza?" Suzuki asked, curiously.
"I do really mind the gender because I'll love my baby no matter what." Akiza answered, rubbing her stomach.
"But dude, seriously your ass is gonna like mutate." Luna said, while everyone started laughing.
"Her ass? Her boobs are gonna be huge too." Carly added, laughing with Luna, "I've seen my cousins when they were pregnant and they had to go up at least one or two bra sizes."
"I'm willing to look a little different until my baby gets here." Akiza smiled, cuddling with Yusei.
"I couldn't have said it better." Yusei grinned. Knowing that he'd be a father soon, he couldn't stop grinning the rest of the night.
I know you all are probably awwing about the epilogue right now...it's okay to admit it! There are also some people who are wondering...
Question #1. Will Demi and Crow ever get together?
A. You have to read the sequel. The answer will be in the first chapter.
Question #2: Is it possible that Kalin and Sam will get together?
A. I really doubt that they'll be together...like I said before, Sam already has a boyfriend and Kalin is too much of a playboy.
Question #3: Will the baby be a boy or a girl in the sequel?
A. If anyone asks this, I'm seriously going to ignore you. I'm not telling anyone the sex of Akiza and Yusei's child...not even if you beg me. The answer is still no.
Well, I think that's all the question's that I can think of...if you have any other questions (besides the third one) I'll be happy to answer them. Again, thanks for reading and I hope you're all looking forward to the sequel.
