"You're really going to marry Dean?" Bobby asked again for the sixth time looking at Alex.
Alex nodded and smiled at him. "I love him Uncle Bobby," she admitted with a shrug.
"I love the boy too, but he is going to die in five days, Alex," Bobby said trying to reason with her. "You are going to be a widow."
Alex frowned at him. "Uncle Bobby..."
"Don't get me wrong, Alexandra," Bobby said quickly putting his hands up. "I love the both of you and I am happy that you love each other and want to spend the rest of your lives together, but the rest of Dean's life only happens to be five short days."
"That's only if we don't find a way to save him, but we will," Alex reasoned.
"You can't know that for sure, Alex," Bobby said softly shaking his head. "I just don't want to see you heart broken."
Alex's face fell slightly and her eyes dropped. "He is the love of my life, Bobby...and whether he dies as my husband or dies as my boyfriend, it's not going to matter. It's going to hurt just the same...."
Bobby sighed, but nodded. "Then you have my blessing kiddo."
Alex offered a weak smile and turned continue fussing with her hair in the mirror. "Thanks, Uncle Bobby."
Bobby frowned for a moment, but allowed a small smile to spread across his face. Alex was like a daughter to him after all and if she truly loved Dean and this was what she wanted then he would just have to be okay with it. He hadn't heard from Dean, Sam, or Alex for a few weeks; he had been busy trying to find some way to save Dean, and they had been busy dealing with fake ghost hunters who had nearly gotten them all killed, a crocotta with a cell phone, a psychotic doctor who was into taking out body parts and then getting the colt back from Bella and finding out about her own deal. When Bobby had finally gotten a call, he was shocked to hear it was because Dean and Alex were getting married. They wanted to do it at his house, one of the only places both of them could truly call home. They had phoned Bill, an old hunting friend of John's who was also a minister and he had agreed to marry them there. Bobby hesitantly agreed to everything and Dean, Sam, and Alex arrived the next day.
Alex turned to face Bobby after fussing with her hair a bit more and raised her eyebrows. "What do you think?" she asked hesitantly.
She had gone out and bought a white dress, wanting to live up to the cliché at least a little. It wasn't like anything she would normally wear; she was a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl and only happened to own one black miniskirt. The dress was tight, hugging every curve of her body, and short. It came down to the middle of her thighs. She hadn't done anything special with her hair just let it fall down her shoulders. She was nervous even though there wasn't going to be a grand ceremony, just her, Dean, Sam, and Bobby in the living room of Bobby's house, with beer and pizza to eat afterwards. She was still getting married either way, something that she thought would never happen to her, and to the famous Dean Winchester no less. She knew he only had five days left and they had no way of finding Lilith or fighting her off, the chances of saving him were slim, but she didn't want to give up. She wouldn't.
"You look great, Alex," Bobby said suddenly very serious. "Dean is a lucky man…"
Alex smiled. "I'm ready then…"
Bobby extended his arm to her and she took it walking with him down the stairs to the first floor. They found Dean and Sam standing with Bill in the living room, the men chatting quietly with beers in hand. When they heard them coming their set their beers down quickly, and Bill and Sam stepped back from Dean as he watched Alex walk down the stairs in awe. She smiled brightly at him, taking his hand once she reached him and giving it a squeeze.
"Wow…you look…like a million bucks," he said shaking his head as he looked her up and down.
She blushed crimson, her eyes dropping. "Thank you…"
"You guys ready?" Bill asked making them both look at him.
Dean and Alex both nodded at once. "Yeah," he said looking back at Alex. "I am ready."
Alex felt her heart leap in his chest at those words and Bill began the makeshift ceremony. She couldn't believe that she was marrying Dean Winchester and that he actually wanted to marry her in return. She had asked him if this was what he had truly wanted, saying that he didn't have to marry her just because he was dying and didn't want her to find love again. After loving a man like Dean, she doubted she ever would. But he insisted that he wanted to die a happily married man, and she was the key to that. From then on she didn't care that he was dying or that she didn't have a ring. None of it mattered, just hearing Dean say his vows to her made all her dreams come true. Bill breezed through the ceremony quickly like they had asked, glossing over the part about exchanging rings and anyone having objections and finally the grand finale came.
"Then by the power vested in me by the state of South Dakota; I know pronounce you man and wife," Bill finished with a smile. "You can kiss her…." He added nodding at Dean.
Dean smirked and turned to Alex, taking her into his arms and kissing her passionately as Bobby and Sam clapped softly. When he pulled back from the kiss he saw tears rolling down her cheeks and reached a hand up to wipe them away. She smiled at him despite the tears and kissed him quickly once more before withdrawing.
"You are officially a Winchester now," Sam said stepping forward to hug Alex. "Welcome to the dysfunction."
"You want to do it again?"
Alex huffed, wiping sweat from her brow as she pulled the sheets back up over her naked form and looked at Dean who lay beside her. "I don't think I can take another round," she chuckled scooting closer to snuggle into the warmth of him. "Besides I think Sam and Bobby would like to get some sleep now, without having to hear this old bed creak and groan."
They lay in Alex's old room, both of them covered in sweat. They had spent some time with Bobby and Sam after the ceremony, eating pizza and drinking beer as they talked and laughed for the time being, thoughts of demon blood, crossroad deals, and deal momentarily gone. Once the pizza was gone, Dean and Alex headed upstairs to "consummate" their marriage as Dean playfully told her. She was nervous about being in Bobby's house, but once Dean was inside of her everything else just flew out the window, she would just have to apologize to Bobby the next day.
Dean wrapped his arm around her, burying his face into her damp hair. "I don't want this night to end," he whispered into her ear.
She sighed. "Me either."
He lifted his head and looked into her eyes as he caressed her cheek. "I'm sorry that I couldn't give you a ring or a proper wedding," he said softly kissing her bottom lip.
She frowned at him in return. "I don't care about having a ring, Dean. And I think our wedding was perfect," she insisted with a small smile. "Because it was me, you, Sam, and Bobby, together like a family. All the people I care about most were there to see it and most of all I got marry you…what more could I have needed?"
Dean couldn't help the smile that spread across his face, falling more in love with her if it was even possible. Only four days left of this after tonight, Dean, a voice in the back of his mind said. And then you will be gone…and she will be alone to suffer. Just like Sammy. He frowned and shook the thoughts from his head looking down at his hand to gaze at the silver ring he always wore on his finger. It was one of the few possessions he had owned for a long time. He pulled it from his finger and held up to the light watching it reflect off the silver before turning to Alex who was watching him.
"Here," he said taking her hand and placing it in her palm. He knew it would be too big to fit on any of her fingers. "This will be your ring…I want you to have it."
Alex felt her eyes water as she wrapped her hand around the ring and looked into Dean's eyes. When did I get so damn emotional? She thought leaning up too kiss him as she slipped the ring on her thumb, it was still too big, but she didn't care. "Thank you, Dean," she whispered. "It's perfect."
"Alex….look…" he started, his eyes dropping. "If we don't find some way to save me…I don't want you to beat yourself up okay? I knew what I was doing when I made that deal…and now I wish sometimes that I hadn't because I have to lose you, but…losing Sam-."
Alex put her hand up, shaking her head to cut him off. It was her wedding night and she didn't want to hear the "If I die" speech. She already knew everything he was going to say, already knew that he both regretted and feared the decision he had made that day at the crossroads, but she also knew that if had a second chance he would do it again. That was just the kind of man that Dean Winchester was and that's why she loved him so much. She leaned forward to kiss him as he fell silent.
"Shut up, Mr. Winchester," she said after brushing her lips across his. "I don't want to hear that kind of talk right now…you have more important things to attend too."
Dean raised an eyebrow, a smirk sliding across his face. "Oh really, Mrs. Winchester? Like what?"
She wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him down on top of her, nipping his bottom lip. "Me," she answered.
