Mitsuhide paced back and forth in front of Kiki's room, pausing every so often to hold his fist up by the door. Each time though, his hand just dropped back down to his side and he resumed pacing.
"You've had no problem before!" Mitsuhide thought, "Heck, you kissed her just a few days ago!" He paused in his pacing and realized that it was only a matter of time until-
"Mitsuhide?" Kiki questioned from the doorway.
Said man turned and saw Kiki had already changed out of her sleeping clothes. She walked over to him and gave him a kiss on the cheek. "Why are you here?"
Mitsuhide looked down at his shoes, "Well, you see," he started, glancing upwards, "I was wondering if you wanted to go out for dinner." The last part he blurted out in probably less than one second.
Even though it took Kiki a moment to process what he had just said, she soon shrugged and said, "Sure."
Smiling, Mitsuhide gave Kiki a big hug then left. He had big plans for that night.
As he and Kiki got on their horses and began heading for the restaurant, Mitsuhide asked, "Do you still have the dress you wore at the ball?"
Confused by the question, Kiki responded, "Yeah, why?"
Upon reaching the restaurant, the two entered and got a little round table. While they were looking over the menus, Mitsuhide could feel the gaze of other people. At one point, he could here an elderly woman say, "Look at that cute young couple!"
The table wasn't very far across, so while Kiki was talking about something during the short period of time between dinner and dessert, Mitsuhide grabbed her face and kissed her over the table.
Throughout the building there was an "oooh" of delight. It had been made clear that Mitsuhide and Kiki were the main attraction that night.(1)
Kiki lightly smacked his face, "We're in a restaurant, stupid!" she whispered, glancing away. Mitsuhide was worried that he had really upset her. That was until he noticed the small smile creeping onto her face.
"Do you want to leave now?" he asked, anxious to get back to Wistal. Mitsuhide felt his surprise could wait no longer.
Kiki pulled her napkin from her lap up to the table. "Let's go."
When the couple got back, it was already dark. Mitsuhide told Kiki to go back to her room and change into her dress. Although she was puzzled, Kiki obliged and returned about fifteen minutes later.
What awaited her made her gasp. Candles lit up the grassy court yard, just enough so she could see Mitsuhide standing a couple yards away in his dress clothes.
"What's all this for?" She approached him slowly and took the hand he was offering.
"Since we didn't get to enjoy the ball a while ago, I thought maybe this would work." There was no music, but Mitsuhide and Kiki began to dance anyways.
The two danced for a while, the dim moon shining on them, not speaking as they did so. When they finally stopped, Mitsuhide whispered, "How's that for a night to remember?"
Kiki smiled up at him, "Thank you."
2 Years Later…
Mitsuhide stood with Zen at the alter, chattering excitedly about who-knows-what.
The organist began to play, which shut Mitsuhide up in a heartbeat as he looked at the back of the church.
Kiki came forward, with Obi giving her away. Over the few years, the two had grown close. Her parents weren't there; she had been an orphan since twelve.
Kiki's dress had no straps, with lace lining the bottom. A ribbon was tied around her waist, a couple shades different than the actual dress. One of her mom's old clips was in her hair. Something old. The shoes she was wearing actually weren't hers, they were Shirayuki's dress shoes that Kiki had been allowed to wear especially for this occasion. Something Borrowed. Whoever had made the dress decided to stitch their name at the bottom of the dress in blue thread. Something Blue.
"Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?"
"I do," Kiki said, barely smiling from under her veil.
The minister then turned to Mitsuhide, "And do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?"
Without waiting for the man to say the words 'you may kiss the bride,' Mitsuhide leaned in and kissed Kiki, the first of many for them as a married couple.
It was definitely something new.
The end. How was it? I am so sorry for the delay on this, it's been almost a month but I've been dealing with the death of a family member lately and now my friend is going through a tough time. But this is the last chapter, watch out for new ANS Fics from me! By the way, I know the end is insanely corny, SORRY. Please review, I have anonymous review on so you don't even have to sign in!
