lives have begun now
Two hearts become one now
One passion, one dream
One thing forever true
I love you!
Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast.
as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast.
Bella took a few deep breaths to try to distill the extreme butterflies that were attacking her stomach. She shivered slightly as she turned to look at Jane who was her maid of honor and flower girl all built into one. Jane looked gorgeous in a frilly dress of deepest crimson that had been made just for the occasion and carrying on her arm a basket of rose petals the exact same color. Alec stood beside her, one hand on her arm in a tuxedo of black. Behind them, Bella stood, nervously clutching her bouquet. She was gorgeous in Didyme's golden gown and her hair was done in the same style as it had been that night. The ball room in the clock tower was the place and the wedding party now stood at the top of the stairs that led down to the ball room. At the bottom of the stairs in the ballroom in front of the big windows there was a Franciscan priest waiting to marry them and there stood Aro at the front of the aisle. On either side were seats of the roughly 200 friends and family Bella and Aro had invited to share this very special day with them. The wedding had been through together in three weeks, but it didn't matter it was still wonderful.
Jane walked down the aisle with Alec at her side tossing rose petals until she got to the end where Aro and the priest waited. Bella took a deep breath as the music suddenly flared and it was the wedding march. Everyone turned to look. Being that Charlie was still recovering he hadn't been cleared to fly, he would have to settle for seeing the pictures.. but Sue had come and so had Renee who was beaming in the front row and Phil beside her.
Bella turned to the man beside her, "Thanks for lending an arm." She murmured in her traditional wit, smiling up at Marcus.
Marcus graced Bella with a full smile, which had become regular occurrences around her. "It is my pleasure...truly an honor." He lead her into the first step.
Aro beamed as he saw Bella... his Young One. Once again she looked like a princess. He grinned even wider as his surprise began. He had arranged for the pianist to change the music from the Wedding March to the theme from Beauty & the Beast. The change occurred flawlessly.
Bella smiled down at him as she realized what he'd done and she lifted her fingers to her lips and blew a kiss in his direction as Marcus slowly escorted her down the aisle to the front. She turned and grasped Aro's hands gently.
The priest smiled and made the sign of the cross over them before beginning the ceremony. "Do you Aro Volturi take Isabella Marie Swan to be you lawful wedding wife.. to have and to hold from this day forward? To love and to cherish in sickness and in health, for better or for worse?"
Aro's eyes locked on Bella's. "I do..." he said with a warm smile.
She smiled as the priest turned to her. "And do you, Isabella Swan take Aro Volturi to be your lawfully wedding husband to have and to hold from this day forward? To love and to cherish in sickness and in health, for better or for worse?"
"I do." She whispered, smiling at him.
"The rings please, good sir." The priest said, looking down at Alec.
Alec smiled and placed both rings in the priests hand. "I didn't lose them!" he said proudly.
Bella breathed a sigh of relief and chuckled, "Good." She whispered with a smile.
The priest grinned. "These rings are perfect symbols and as such they represent the continue of your love, Aro, for Bella and your love, Bella, for Aro. Aro, please place the ring on Bella's finger and repeat after me. "With this ring, I thee wed."
Aro took the small platinum band that held the most perfect princess cut diamonds, and slid it on Bella's finger. "With this ring, I thee wed..."
She smiled softly up at him, tears shimmering in her eyes.
"Isabella, please take your ring and put it on Aro's finger and repeat after me . "With this ring.. I three wed."
Bella grinned and took the ring, platinum as well, a simple band with their initials and the date carved in the inside, and slipped it onto his finger. "With this ring... I thee.. finally.. wed." Bella murmured with a huge grin.
The priest smiled, "Those whom God has brought together let no man put asunder.. I now pronounce you man and wife.. Aro... you may kiss your bride."
Aro brought his hand up to gently stroke her cheek. He smiled at her. He leaned and gently met her lips with his.
Bella smiled as she lifted her hand to his face and tenderly kissed him back for a long moment as the sun came out from behind a cloud and cast a beautiful rainbow right over them to the wall beside them. She pulled back slowly looking into his eyes as everyone clapped and cheered.
Before long the reception was in full swing and Aro was twirling Bella around the ballroom floor. She smiled up to him when he pulled her close. "There's something I want to tell you." she whispered. "That I've been saving for today."
Aro looked down at her slightly confused. "Alright..." He gently took her waist, and lead her to the balcony, for a moment of quiet.
She smiled and turned and took his hands between the two of them and looked into his eyes. "I want you to turn me." She whispered softly, smiling more.
Aro looked at her, expressionless. "Are you...are you sure?' he asked, searching her eyes.
"Positive." She said softly, looking up at him, "You pick the date.."
Aro contemplated, not removing his eyes from hers. "One year..." he said after a moment.
She smiled softly, "One year?" She asked, surprised.
"I want you to stay human a little longer..." he urged, hoping it was alright.
She smiled softly, understanding.. his curiosity about humans that she had brought about in him.. and time to experience their newlywed period free of newborn complications. "One year then." She said softly with a smile as she leaned in for a kiss and the music swelled again into their song.
Aro kissed her deeply and after a moment pulled away with a smile. "And so it was a happy ending for the Beauty and the Beast..."
"and they lived.. happily ever after.. together.. forever." Bella whispered softly.
And so they did.. live happily ever after *huge grin from Beck and Cassy*. We've had soooo much fun writing this story, and for those that decided to take a risk and read it even though the pairing of Aro and Bella seems so very strange, well, Thanks so much for putting up with us we really hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did!!! - We're also working on a Sequel for this story. It is again based on a Disney movie Lion King II, though it doesn't follow.. quite.. as closely as this one did you'll see the similarities if you should happen to read it. It should be up in a couple of days so be sure to check my author page if you want to read the Sequel :) It'll roughly pick up from where this one left off! I'll be sure to include that it's the sequel to this in the summary so you can find it easily. Anyway, I suppose I've rambled on long enough. I guess we better let Aro and Bella's honeymoon commence. Ahem lol. I think they deserve that much by now don't you? lol.
