Chapter 12 - Just Wanna Be Happy
"Dearly beloved were gathered here today to join this man and woman in holy matrimony. No one could've foreseen these two coming together in one heart, one mind and one soul. Right now...Jake and Alexia have something they'd like to say to each other." As the minister turned to Jake and Alexia.
Jake looked down at Alexia in her beautiful wedding dress completely happy he didn't see the dress before today. She was absolutely breath taking, he'd almost forgotten to breathe when he watched her walk down the aisle...Jake took her hand and said, Alexia, I take you to be my wife from this time onward, to join with you and to share all that is to come, to be your faithful husband, to give and to receive, to speak and to listen, to inspire and to respond; a commitment made in love, kept in faith, and eternally made together." Jake slipped the ring on her finger and kissed the back of her hand.
Alexia said, "Jake, I take you to be my husband from this time onward, to join with you and to share all that is to come, to be your faithful wife, to give and to receive, to speak and to listen, to inspire and to respond; a commitment made in love, kept in faith, and eternally made together." She slipped the ring on Jake's finger. The minister pronounced them husband and wife as Jake leaned down and kissed her lips softly...he pulled back and said, "God you're so beautiful today." alexia smirked and said, "Just today?" Jake said, "Absolutely not...Every day since you was born." Alexia said, "Good save...You've been granted a stay of execution." Jake chuckled as he leaned down and kissed her lips again.
As Paul walked down the aisle following Jake and Alexia, he felt a bump against his side, he looked down and cracked a smile as his wife made a face at him. Paul said, "What in the world are you doing?" Mackenzie giggled and said, "Trying to run into this really hot guy who looks like someone I know, but I haven't seen him in a tuxedo for at least a year or so...but that wouldn't be you would it?" Paul smirked and said, "Okay...That might be me." Kenzie smiled up at him as he leaned over and kissed her lips softly, when he pulled back she rubbed her nose against his and he wrapped his arm around her waist. They walked over to the second pew in the church and Embry was holding a sleeping 3 month old Alicia Redson.
Kenzie smiled and said, "How was she during the ceremony?" Embry smiled and said, "She slept like an angel."
It was a complete miracle the night Alicia was born...the doctor checked her out and said she was completely healthy, her lungs and other organs were fully developed...the doctor thought maybe he misdiagnosed her date of conception...whatever the case may have been she was completely healthy with no problems. And she was the most beautiful baby girl Kenzie and Paul had ever seen.
Mackenzie already knew from what Paul had told her about imprinting. When Alicia was 1 month old, Embry imprinted on her...Kenzie knew it meant he would be whatever Alicia needed him to be at each point in her life, a brother, a friend, a protector always, and a lover when she got older...whatever it called for...Embry felt terrible about it afterwards. He couldn't believe he'd imprinted on a month old baby...it felt weird and old and made him feel dirty, he actually felt so bad he stayed away from Paul and Kenzie's place until Mackenzie went looking for him and told him it was okay, she knew what the imprinting meant. He would be there in her life forever...Someone who would always be there even if Paul and Mackenzie weren't...Kenzie told Embry she was proud of him for imprinting on her daughter...It mean she would always have someone in her life who cared for her and loved her. Something Mackenzie didn't get until she married Paul.
Paul and Kenzie walked out of the church watched as Embry was so gentle with their daughter and Paul said, "So, we've got the perfect marriage...The most beautiful daughter in the world...A future son in law, who with love our daughter even when we're not here on earth anymore...What more could we ask for? Or what more do we need?" Kenzie looked up at Paul and said, "Well...I could stand to have a couple more of those things up there that Embry is carrying." Paul said, "Yea me too...Maybe we should work on that tonight."
Kenzie giggled as Paul kissed her ear and he said, "What else?"
Kenzie smiled and said, "I just wanna be happy."
