Chapter Twenty - A Happy Ending.
"And do you, Sasuke Uchiha, take Naruto to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do you part?"
"I do." Naruto smiled brilliantly up at him.
"I declare you man and husband. You may now kiss your partner."
Naruto felt his heart to a flip when Sasuke pressed his lips to his lovingly. He gave back as good as he got and the witnessess applauded. They broke apart, happy and radiant - well, at least Naruto was radiant - and looked out over their friends and family. Suigetsu had been Naruto's best man and Itachi had been Sasuke's. Kakashi had walked Naruto down the aisle. Naruto had dressed in a simple off-white tux and Sasuke the traditional black tux with white shirt. They'd both sported a red rose. The ring on Naruto's finger made him feel unbelievably loved as he grinned at a sniffling Iruka. The tux he was wearing had been his and he'd passed it on to Naruto. Naruto had been extremely touched, but he was starting to think that it meant more to Iruka to see him wear than it ever could have to him. His first stop was to hug his parents. After that, with Sasuke glued to his side, he mingled until the DJ started up the dance music. Their first dance as a married couple was to the song that had officially become their song only a few months ago. Can You Feel The Love Tonight by Elton John floated through the speakers as they swayed to the lyrics. It was silly how it had become theirs. They'd been watching The Lion King one day and Sasuke had started singing Simba's part while Naruto had automatically gone to Nala's part. They'd both looked at each other and grinned and that was all it took. They'd chosen Elton John's more practical rendition for the occasion, but they both knew those lyrics as well. Naruto sang the lyrics softly now. Sasuke had been humming the opening verse, so Naruto started in on the chorus.
"And can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are. It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer that we got this far. And can you feel the love tonight? How it's laid to rest. It's enough to make kings and vagabonds believe the very best." He kissed Sasuke tenderly as he finished.
"There's a time for everyone if they only learn, that the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn. There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors, when the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours," Sasuke murmured softly. Naruto pulled him to him with his hand in his hair and they danced the remainder of the song with their lips locked together. The rest of the music was pretty upbeat and everyone was tired by the time the party was over. They both changed into more comfortable clothes, namely sweat pants and T-shirts for sleeping, and caught a ride with his parents to the airport after saying goodbye to Itachi and Suigetsu. Iruka was grinning at them as they walked to their terminal and Kakashi had a happy look about him behind his scarf. When they finally got on their plane they made themselves comfortable for the long flight. For some reason they were flying to Texas first, but after that they were on their way to Florida. Sasuke was out like a light as soon as he was allowed to recline his seat. Naruto cuddled up to him and waited for sleep to claim him too. He couldn't believe they were really married. He kept playing with his ring. Finally he placed his left hand over Sasuke's left hand and drifted off for the time being.
When he woke again they were getting ready to land in Dallas, Texas. Sasuke had a death grip on him in his sleep. Giggling, Naruto poked him in his side until he groggily opened his eyes to glare at him. "The plane's landing Love." Sasuke groaned and sat up, rubbing the sleep from his eyes. The woman next to Naruto muffled a laugh. Naruto grinned unashamedly. The layover was almost an hour long, but surprisingly they only just had enough time to eat before they had to go through security and make their way to boarding. Sasuke resumed his nap on this plane, but Naruto was bored. He pulled out his Sudoku book, one he'd bought especially for this trip, and completed every puzzle before sleep caught up with him. He yawned as he filled in the last number and he realized that his eyes were a little blurry. He put the puzzle book away and once again snuggled up to Sasuke.
"We're here Love," Sasuke was murmuring in his ear. That tickled. Naruto batted him away. Sasuke laughed that throaty laugh and Naruto felt himself getting some morningwood. "Hey, none of that here. Save it for the hotel room," Sasuke said in amusement and Naruto's eyes snapped open. Oh crap he was still on the plane. He blushed and forced himself to calm down while Sasuke chuckled beside him.
"Don't be an ass," Naruto grumbled as he stretched the kinks out. They gathered up their luggage and made their way to the bus that was going to take them to the hotel. Naruto tried to keep his eyes open the entire way there. When they got there and Sasuke checked them in Naruto used the keycard to open the door eagerly, but Sasuke stopped him. The blond looked at his raven questioningly, but before he could utter a single word Sasuke swooped down on him with a devilish grin and carried him over the threshold bridal style. Naruto blushed, but he found he liked it. Sasuke kicked the door shut with his foot and strode purposefully over to the bed. He plopped Naruto down on it and he felt the wind whoosh out of him momentarily. But then Sasuke was on top of him taking his clothes off and he didn't have time to worry about it.
Naruto moaned as Sasuke latched onto his neck and bit roughly. His fingers worked quickly to rid the raven of his clothes. Sasuke had concocted this evil scheme to make Naruto want him more when they finally went on their honeymoon. The jerk hadn't touched him in over two months. The dance today had seemed almost unbearably erotic and the passionate kisses had nearly been his undoing. Sleeping next to someone who refused to relieve the sexual tension was torture. He heard himself whimper and blushed furiously. Sasuke chuckled huskily and kissed down Naruto's bare chest. The blond didn't know how his clothes had disappeared, but he was sincerely glad they had. He arched into the kisses and gasped in pleasure when Sasuke's tongue teased his nipple. Naruto would never admit it, but over the past year or so he'd become a little bit of a sex addict and the abstinence of the last few months had been painful. Most people would have just spent a little extra time in the shower, but Naruto could never get himself off for some reason. There was a little voice in the back of his head that said it was a form of cheating and another part that just couldn't reach completion without assistance. The pleasure just wasn't there no matter what he did. Due to these simple facts meant that at this very moment he was extremely sensitive. So when Sasuke started to stroke him lightly he started cumming. As soon as the world came back into existance and he saw Sasuke's questioning eyes he nearly died of embarrassment.
"Did we get a little over excited for some reason?" Sasuke murmured as he kissed him tenderly. Naruto didn't answer. "Love?"
"I don't want to talk about it," he grumped.
"I'm curious though," Sasuke whispered as he nibbled his earlobe. Naruto crossed his arms and stayed stubbornly silent. "Don't tell me you get this sensitive when you go a few months without me? Don't you touch yourself?" he asked curiously as he continued the comforting and slightly enticing caresses with his tongue and lips. And teeth. Dear God those teeth. He was unintentionally responding.
"No," he whispered as he once again arched into Sasuke's mouth.
The raven pulled back. "Really?" He looked amazed.
"Really. Do you?" Naruto asked as his fingers tangled in Sasuke's hair without his permission.
"Yes. I just assumed you did too. Why didn't you?"
Naruto really didn't want to answer. "I can't," he finally muttered.
Sasuke raised an eyebrow at him. "Can't?"
"I can't cum when I do, so I might as well not even try. Only you have the ability to give me that much pleasure." Naruto was blushing again, but Sasuke was looking at him lovingly and hungrily.
"I'm glad," he breathed into his ear before sliding down to lick up some of the previous excretions before taking the blond into his mouth. Naruto's toes curled as he felt himself growing hard again. As soon as he was fully erect Sasuke started to stretch him out. Naruto pushed himself gratefully onto those penetrating fingers and tried to maneuver so that he would hit his prostate. Sasuke pulled out when he realized what he was doing and Naruto heard a growl rumble from his own throat. He didn't have time to be embarrassed because Sasuke was sliding into him and for the first time in forever he felt entirely complete. He looked up into the onyx eyes that had become so familiar. His husband's eyes. This man had married him, promised to be with him forever. He felt tears sting his eyes as he pulled the pale man into his embrace and held on tightly. Sasuke started moving and Naruto felt himself climing higher and higher. When he finally exploded again it was more intense than it had ever been before. He didn't stop clinging as he settled back down to earth. "I love you Naruto," Sasuke said quietly. He linked his hand with the one that Sasuke wore his ring on and smiled when the raven brought his own ring finger up to his luscious lips and kissed every knuckle.
"I love you too Sasuke." He kissed him happily and snuggled up to him for the time being.
Naruto glanced at the clock lazily after some time had been passed in a wonderful daze. He yawned and sat up as he comprehended the numbers on the little machine. Sasuke looked like he was sleeping. The blond leaned down to kiss him passionately before slipping out of bed. Sasuke opened a bleery eye and stared up at him. "Why are you getting dressed?" He watched as his lover's eyes registered the bathing suit part of his outfit. "Are we going swimming?"
"Nope. Better. We're swimming with the dolphins." He grinned at the confused look on his face. "Don't worry. I know that's not exactly your idea of fun. I booked a scuba diving session for tomorrow afternoon." Sasuke contemplated that for a moment before rolling out of bed with a sigh. Before he did anything though he came up behind Naruto and wrapped his arms around his waist. Naruto sighed happily when the taller man nuzzled his ear.
"Fine. But I get to pick what we do every other day. Just so you know for the most part it's going to include sex."
Naruto laughed at the warning. "Figures. Oh well, I have no objections. Though I do wish you wouldn't use that term anymore. I have nothing against the word 'sex' in general it's just that we've moved beyond sexual partners to lifelong partners and I prefer the term 'making love' at this stage of the game. I'm sure at some point we'll both call it 'falling asleep in funny positions', but for now I'm happy with 'making love'."
Sasuke laughed at that last sentence. When he finally composed himself he said, "Fine. When we get back here tonight I'm going to make love to you until you can't even stand on your own and you're screaming my name in extacy."
Naruto shivered at the thought. "I'm looking forward to it," he murmured. He felt Sasuke grin against his neck and he knew that this new beginning was only a prelude to a life full of wonderful moments like those they'd shared today.
