*Sigh* This is probably the fastest I've ever written a story. It kind of makes me sad that it's over. But this is where it ends. Enjoy!
We made it to Las Vegas in the middle of the night. We had left Forks at around five, and had made it to Vegas around three the next morning. I had slept in the car for a while, after getting some food from a drive-thru and eating on the go. Edward had gone out to hunt for a few minutes while I had been with Alice after school. He wasn't perfect, but he'd be fine long enough for us to get away.
"Any requests?" Edward asked as we began driving down the main street.
"No Elvis, aliens, or random things like that." I replied with a yawn as I tried to see everything.
"Just you, me, someone licensed to marry us and a witness?"
"That sounds right to me." I smiled.
Twenty minutes later, we were in a small chapel, and saying our vows. We knew some people wouldn't call this the perfect wedding, but it was perfect for us, and that was all that mattered. And, after our first kiss as husband and wife, we began to head for the airport.
"Where do you want to go?" Edward asked.
"Anywhere!" I exclaimed. "Just get us two tickets on the first flight to anywhere. I want to be alone with you for a while." I smiled up at Edward as we walked into the airport.
"I think I can manage that." Edward said, kissing me softly.
After a few minutes talking to the poor woman behind the counter, he did manage it. "Two tickets to anywhere, love."
We headed through security and towards the gates. After passing through, Edward called Alice. He had asked the woman not to tell him where the tickets were for, and he hadn't looked at more than the gate number.
"Alice, I'm sorry you feel that way, but I just want someone to pick my car up from the parking lot here." He paused to let her speak. "Okay, but I'm not sure where we're going. I'll call when we land." He paused again then sighed. "Alice, by the time you get here, we'll be halfway to anywhere." And with that, he hung up. "Are you ready for an adventure, love?" He asked as our gate began loading.
"Yes." I said, and kissed him.
We're leaving here tonight;
There's no need to tell anyone;
They'd only hold us down;
So by the morning's light,
We'll be halfway to anywhere;
Where love is more than just your name.
