Chapter Thirty-Four

Mokuba, Serenity, Seto and Joey led the guests back into the Manor; they went into the Grand Ball Room, then the guests went to the assigned tables and sat down, and Helga said, "I hope that you enjoy the meal, my staff and I prepared it especially for this joyful event."

As they ate their meal, everyone was thinking of what they were going to say when they toasted the happy couples. When everyone was done eating, Solomon stood up and tapped his glass and said, "I want to say of few words, I've known Joseph and Serenity since well since they were born, and I couldn't love them more if they were my own children,

Then there's Amber, well what can I say, I love her with all my heart and she's such a sweet and loving child, Joseph both you and Serenity have done a great job raising her.

Seto and Mokuba I've known you both for a few years and well you're both upstanding young men and I'm proud to say that I know and love each and everyone of you."

Then Roland and Helga stood up and said, "I want to say this, I love my sons, even if they aren't legally mine, Helga and I have raised them since their father died, and they mean the world to both of us.

Then there is Joseph and his sister, well since we've come to know them, we both love them as if they were our own and then there's Amber, well we both think of her as our grandchild, even if she isn't really.

We wish all of you many years of happiness and maybe we can get another grandchild or two out of these unions."

Chester then stood up and said, "Today I'm the happiest and sadness father in the world, I gave my daughter away to this young man, and now their married, in a way I guess I'm not losing a daughter, I'm gaining a son and of course I have the greatest granddaughter in the world.

When I came here and met Serenity's brother, I knew that we would be friends and then I met Mokuba's parents and his brother and I know that my daughter is going to be safe and have lots of love when I'm not here.

I just want to say, I hope that all of you have many many years of happiness and I love all of you."

Everyone stood up and toasted the happy couples and then Amber stood up on her chair and said, "Me talk too, me love my mommy, my new daddy, my Uncle Joey and my Uncle Seto, Roland and Helga and my grandpa Chester, I love all of you." Then she brought her little hand to her lips and blew all of them a kiss and they all caught it and blew on back to her.

The Helga said, "It's time for the happy couples to dance their first dance together, Seto you and Joey and Mokuba and Serenity please come out here and dance you first dance. They danced to this song:

Because You Loved Me lyrics 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 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

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 were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

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 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

I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

After the two couples had been dancing for a little while, Roland held out his hand and asked Helga to dance, then Yami and Yugi, Bakura and Ryou, Marik and Malik, Tristan and Tea and then of course Chester went over and asked Amber to dance.

It was a day of laughter and tears and many wishes for both couples, then Mokuba looked at Rene and she nodded her head and they went over to where Chester was dancing with Amber and Mokie tapped him on the shoulder, and he smiled and Mokie took Amber into his arms and Amber danced with her parents.

As everyone watched, tears of happiness flowed through the room and they all knew that Seto and Joey, Mokuba and Serenity would have years and years of happiness.

Roland touched Mokie on the shoulder and he smiled and Serenity danced with her new father-in-law and Mokie went over and asked his mom to dance, while they were dancing, Mokie whispered, "For a little while can Rene, Amber and I use the guest house until we're ready to move into a place of our own?" Helga smiled through her tears as she kissed his cheek and said, "You know you can, and son I love you and your new family."

So now, we close the doors and let the happy couples enjoy their families and friends and know that they will all live happily ever after....
