I'm sorry if I miss out part of the ceremony but I'm trying! So be patient with me ;D and I went to watch dark knight rises again last night, and watching it I think the story might be short. :S
And i'd like to thank everyone who stuck with me through the whole story. It makes me so happy that there's people who appreciate my work. Anyway here is the last chapter of the beginning of the end. I will probably write One-Shots of Alice and Bruce because i'd miss them both too much if i stopped completely :)
Anyway the long awaited wedding :DD
"Don't let me fall" I whispered nervously to my gramps, He responded only in tightening his iron lock on my elbow.
I closed my eyes, trying to focus on my breathing.
As the wedding march began, we rounded the corner of the white canopy.
We walked slowly down the aisle as I looked around me in wonder. Our childhood garden had been transformed into a paradise.
Lilies and various flowers were placed around the room. My cousins were amazing.
I inhaled deeply and a heavenly aroma of oranges and a strong floral scent hit my nose. It was addictive and gorgeous.
Finally my eyes rose as we neared the end of the brilliant white carpet, I looked into Bruce's handsome face.
His hair was gelled back and he was smiling widely as we stared at each other.
As we neared him, he took a large step towards us. To which everyone smiled.
My grandpa kissed my cheek and placed my hand into Bruce's own larger one.
We walked towards the alter where our hands still joined we stared at each other once again.
If you asked me to recite half of what the priest said; well I couldn't. I went through the ceremony in a daze only comprehending when he asked us to say our vows. Bruce went first
"I, Bruce Wayne take you, Allison Carter to be my lawfully wedded wife, my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honour and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live."
"I Allison Carter, take you Bruce Wayne to be my lawfully wedded husband my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live."
"The rings please" The priest called
Bruce reached to the pillow and took the ring. He then took my hand and slid on the delicate silver band over my finger "With this ring I thee wed. Wear it as a symbol of our love and commitment."
I then handed my flowers to Maddie and took the ring from Pepper.
I repeated Bruce's earlier words "With this ring I thee wed. Wear it as a symbol of our love and commitment." And slid it on his own finger
"Allison and Bruce in the sight of God and this community, you have vowed fidelity to one another in holy matrimony and represented these vows with the exchanging of rings. I now you pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride"
Bruce leaned forward and joined our lips in a searing kiss.
I knew, That no matter how hard life got. I would always have Bruce. So maybe that meant that life would never be necessarily bad. That was enough for me to be reassured for the moment. Little did I know that a storm was brewing.
A storm that would change everything for better or for worst.
