The wedding was beyond Penelope could have ever imagined. She was surrounded by the people she loved the most in the world, and marrying the man she had loved from the moment she laid her eyes on him. It was the fairy tale ending for what began as turmoil filled season of her life. A season she wasn't quite sure she was going to finish, and now she was marrying her best friend. The look of love in his eyes quenched any doubts anyone had about how Derek felt about Penelope, most importantly to Penelope. In the months that they began to restore their friendship, as he stood by her through chemotheraphy and everything else that her illness brought, it only drew them closer together. At her most vulnerable moments, he too shed his walls and revealed so much of himself, that there was no doubt in her mind that she trusted him fully and vice versa. It wasn't just about love, trust and their unique connection, it was more than that, they were soul mates and whatever seasons they had endured to lead them to their wedding day, it was worth it.

As Penelope marched down that aisle in the arm of Adam, beaming with happiness Derek couldn't hold the tears back that threatened to fall nor did he want to. She was finally his, after everything, he was going to be able to live the rest of his life with her, and that's all that mattered. She was beautiful beyond measure, and his love for her only grew by the second.

Penelope gave Derek a grin as she his face light up at the sight of her, as she came closer she could see the tears that welled in his as he quickly wiped them away not wanting for his vision to be blurred as she walked towards him. He mouthed 'I love you' as Adam brought her to him to which she mouthed the same words back. It was a brand new day, and everyone in that room knew it's value and after everything they had been through with Penelope, they knew they would never take it for granted.

THE END

Thank you so much for your patience with me, and my long awaited updates. My life is crazy busy at the moment, and I hardly get a chance to sit still and that iPhone is not Word friendly therefore I can't update from my phone as I used to be able to from my e63. Anyhooo, I thought I'd end it here. Fear not, a sequel may find it's way to surface soon. Thank you for your reviews, I know I haven't been very good at acknowledging them lately, but I truly do appreciate it, and without it, I wouldn't be as spurred on as I am.
