Disclaimer: I do not own any of the main characters in this story even though I wish I did.
"This circlet of precious metal is justly regarded as a fitting emblem of the purity and perpetuity of the Marriage State. The ancients were reminded by the circle of eternity, as it is so fashioned as to have neither beginning nor end; while gold is so incorruptible that it cannot be tarnished by use or time. So may the union, at this time solemnized, be incorruptible in its purity and more lasting than time itself."
The Minister hands the ring to Miley. "Miley and Lilly have chosen today to write their own vows for one another." Smiling down at the girls he speaks again, "Miley you may begin."
"Lilly, we both know that a great deal of things have happened between us in the past, and that as a result of those things, a lot has changed between us. But the one thing that not even time itself could change, are my feelings for you. As fate would have it, we found our lives crossing once again, and with that, eventually we found our way back to one another. Lilly, I have been in love with you since I was sixteen, and there is not anything in this world that I would not do for you. You are my everything Lilly, you are my best friend, my soul mate, my lover. For me, it's always been you Lilly... it always will be." Miley took a breath before trying to continue. "When everything fell apart between us before, I told my father that I wanted to leave everything so that I could forget and move on with my life. That was a lie. I never wanted to forget what we had, Lilly. Those memories were the only thing that kept me going while it seemed like my life was crumbling right before my own eyes. Those memories, they were the only thing that saved me, and that kept me pushing forward. They were a reminder to me that at one time I had everything I ever wanted… before I let all of that slip away from me. Lilly, you and I, we were meant be in each others life some way or another. I have learned so much from being with. You have made me a better and stronger person, just by having you in my life. My wish for you, is that you are successful, happy and loved. That's all I've ever wanted for you. I need you to be happy, Lilly... nothing in this world would make me happier. But no matter where life takes us, Lilly, I need you to understand something, and I never want you to forget it. I love you, Lilly Truscott." Miley swallowed hard as tears now formed in her eyes. "I will always, always love you, Lilly Alexis Truscott... I'm the greatest fan of your life." Miley felt her heart breaking as she began to finish her vows to the only girl she would ever be able to love in her life... the girl that carried her heart, even if she did not want it.
"Doubt thou the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love. My love for you will always be true; I promise you that. I am yours forever." Miley locked her eyes with Lilly's, finally showing the blond woman in front of her, the storm that raged on between all the love and sadness in side her as she repeated the words that Lilly had spoken to her so long ago when they were both sixteen and they had finally declared their love for one another.
There could not have been a more beautiful day for a wedding as the twenty five year old Lilly Truscott stood on the sands of the beach, eyes lost in the oceans waves as they crashed against one another while listening to the words of Miley's vows for her. As Miley finished the last line of her vows, Lilly felt her heart burst with happiness and yet at the same time, shatter into a million pieces. Just when Lilly had finally begun to feel like she was in control of her life again, everything was suddenly ripped out right from underneath her. Turning her head slightly to the right she looked out into the ocean of heads that belonged to hers and Miley's friends and family. Hearing her name spoken, she turned meeting the sad eyes of her soon to be wife. Feeling the gold ring being slipped onto her finger, she began to feel sick. Things were so perfect... what had happened? Quickly she tugged her eyes away from Miley's stare and faced the minister.
Handing Lilly the ring he spoke, "Lilly, you can now begin your vows."
Taking a deep breathe Lilly began the vows she had written years ago for this very day. "Have you ever heard the expression, "Love is a friendship set on fire."? Well, that is exactly how it is with us. Miley, you are my best friend, my soul mate, and the day I met you was the day I fell in love with you, I knew even then that this is where we would be standing one day. That night in your bedroom when you told me you were in love with me, you set my mind and heart ablaze. Miley, that night you set our friendship on fire. Unknowingly, you challenge me everyday to be a better, stronger, and more caring person. You push me to want to be better... to want to do great things. I might be the only person in this world that knows that you are the greatest woman to ever walk on this Earth. I might be the only one who appreciates just how amazing you are in every single thing that you do, and how you are with everyone else around you. You are perfect Miles, from every single thought that you have, to how you say what you mean, and how you would do anything just to make me smile. I think most people miss that about you, they miss just how kind and caring you are. They miss how you are always putting everyone else before yourself. How hard you work to achieve all the great things you have going for you. They choose to ignore all of that for some reason, and I just watch them, wondering how they can watch you day in and day out, and never get that they just met the greatest woman alive. And Miley, the fact that I get it, that I see you for you, makes me feel good. I love you Miles."
"Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts."
Lilly felt Miley take her hands in her own. Looking up at her momentarily, her light blues met dark and sad ones causing her to look once again at the sand beneath their feet. Just then the minister started speaking again.
"Love has no other desire but to fulfill wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks to another day of rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy; To return home eventide with gratitude, and then sleep with a prayer. For the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips. Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove. It is an ever-fixed mark, That looks on tempests and is never shaken. It is the star to every wandering bark, whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken."
Lilly could feel her face begin to burn and her hands start to shake as she felt herself becoming angry.
"You may now kiss your bride."
Taking her eyes off the ground, her lips were met by Miley's. Feeling her now wife's arms wrap around her neck, Lilly pulled her closer hugging her arms tightly around Miley's waist. Everything suddenly felt right again, it was Miley and Lilly. The way everything was supposed to be. Smiling into the kiss as she thought about how right that sounded, she felt herself slipping away, forgetting everything that had once happened between them. Yet just as fast as those memories escaped her mind, she remembered the look in Miley's eyes just moments before the kiss and suddenly all those nightmarish memories were all swarming back to her. She felt herself sigh into the kiss. Why did Mikayla always have to ruin everything? Why was Miley so upset? Why couldn't they're lives ever be simple again? Feeling Miley pull away from the kiss, Lilly tried to shake her thoughts away as she felt Miley's hot breath on her neck. The feeling causing her eyes to shut in pleasure until she heard the girl spit venomous words in her ear. "I saw you with her last night."
"Love has no other desire but to fulfill wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks to another day of rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy; To return home eventide with gratitude, and then sleep with a prayer. For the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips."
"I now pronounce you wed!"
Lilly looked at Miley in shock. Had she just heard the brunette correctly? Before Lilly could do anything, she felt Miley pulling her down the white isle laid out on the sand. Confetti was falling down on top of them the whole way down the sand until they finally reached the limo. Lilly turned to her wife needing to say something… anything, but was cut off by Miley's lips crashing into hers once again as camera flashes began coming from every direction. "Just fucking perfect." Lilly thought to her self as she realized that once again she had managed to screw everything up.
