A/N: Sorry it's been a while since I updated.. Vacation and job interviews got in the way :). Please Read and Review :) Enjoy! Thanks to Pandorama for helping me fix this chapter :)
The day had finally arrived. Abby was getting married. Eric was on leave from his duty to attend his older sister's wedding. Unfortunately their mother had made her yearly comeback and was wreaking havoc on Abby's life.
"Abby, are you sure your hair wouldn't look prettier up instead of down?" Maggie Wyczenski nagged Abby about her hair.
"Mom, I am wearing my hair how I want to. You are going to sit and be silent during this wedding. Please, mom." Abby always hated when her mother popped up in her life. She always reappeared off of her bipolar medicine. She always swore she wouldn't go off her meds again. Then she would disappear, sometimes before she could be hospitalized, and stay away for a while. Then about a year later she would show up and repeat the cycle.
Her mother had been back on her medicine for about a week. She was shocked when she showed up and Abby was in the midst of a wedding.
"Fine. You've done everything else without me. You don't want my input, fine." Maggie stomped off in the direction of where the wedding was being held.
Just then, Eric stuck his head in the door. "Ya ready to go sis?" Eric stuck his arm out for his sister to grab on to.
Abby looked up at her younger brother. "I'm ready."
They walked out of Richard's parents' house to the backyard where the wedding was taking place. Hearing The Wedding March starting to play, Eric walked his sister down the aisle. Abby glanced around at all her family and friends, along with all of Richard's family and friends. She walked toward the altar, where Richard was beaming at her, trying to keep tears from ruining her makeup.
As they walked up to the altar, the pastor asked, "Who gives this woman to this man?"
"I do." Eric smiled over at his sister and gave her a kiss on the cheek. He handed her over to Richard.
Richard and Abby approached the altar. Beaming at each other, the pastor begins the ceremony. "If anyone has any reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now or forever hold your peace."
Abby glared back towards her mother, urging her to stay quiet.
After waiting a few minutes, the pastor continued with the wedding. After reading a few passages from the Bible, he gets down to business. "Do you, Richard Lockhart, take Abigail Wyczenski to be your lawful wedded wife?"
"And do you, Abigail Wyczenski, take Richard Lockhart to be your lawful wedded husband?"
After they exchanged rings, the pastor said, "You may kiss the bride." Richard leaned in and gave Abby a passionate kiss. "Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to present to you Mr. and Mrs. Lockhart."
The newly wedded couple walked down the aisle eager to start their new lives together.
