Super sorry guys! I meant to post this the other day, but I didn't have it all typed up. I was busy with a history project and my Latin class :)
So I now present to you the last chapter of Time To Start My New Life.
1 month later
It was the day of the wedding Nellie was in her room getting ready. She didn't have a formal wedding dress, so she used a flowing, white spring dress. She finished her hair and make up, then stood in front of the mirror.
"You look beautiful mum." Toby said shocked in the door way. He knew his mum was very pretty, but today it was different. She liked raidient. He couldn't recall a time when she looked so happy.
"Oh do you really think so Toby?" There was a hint of doubt in her eyes.
"With out a doubt ma'am." He said firmly. "With out a doubt." He put his arm out for her to take, and guided her out to the beach where Sweeney an the minister were waiting. In the month before the wedding Mrs. Lovett, soon to be Todd, taught Toby the correct manners and actions of a true gentleman. He had become quite the young man in that short month and Nellie could not be anymore proud. She loved Toby beyond words, and he was her son.
Toby walked her down the aisle to Sweeney.
Sweeney had reluctantly bonded with Toby, after a lot of pushing, shoving, and screaming from Nellie. She had made then go to town to buy fishing rods and go fishing. That day had consisted of a lot of rather awkward silence. Neither of them had been fishing before, and hasn't a clue what to do. When they came home empty handed Nellie said it was the fact that they did something together. Sweeney. Couldn't fathom why they couldn't just sit at home in silence, instead of having to walk all the way to town and then to the river. When he said this Toby couldn't help but laugh. But the real bonding moment was when Nellie had them play a game of chess. Toby said how he was always interested in the barber's work. Pirelli had not shown him too much, but what he did Toby loved. And so Sweeney offered to teach him. And now every Wednesday the shop is Toby's.
When Nellie got to Sweeney she kissed Toby's cheek and took Sweeney's hands. And the ceremony began.
"I pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss your bride." The minister declared as he closed his book.
They both leaned in with out hesitation for the kiss. It was slow and sweet, the perfect kiss.
They had done it. They had finally gotten married. Nellie had only dreamed of this moment. And now that her dream was finally a reality, she didn't know what her dream was now.
"I love you Nell" he said again as his lips covered hers once more.
"I love you too" he kissed her again. "I'm so glad we're married." His lips fell to hers once more.
"I couldn't be happier" he said as he wrapped her in his arms and kissed her head.
They fell asleep like that early in the morning. After a long night of passion the did not plan on getting up. They were content to lay in each others arms.
Everything was perfect.
His new life had begun.
So I'm super sorry it's short. It actually ended a completely different way then what I thought when I first started this. I always planned for Nellie to die. Even though I love her dearly and was so upset when she died in the movie, it's just the way I pictured it. But the story took on a life of its own.
