Chapter Seven

I should probably point out that I don't own the song used here.

It belongs to "Platinum Dragon17."

It is called "One Winged Angel."

Jack's heart was beating so hard that it felt as if it would burst from his chest.

Three days had passed since the battle with Fang, and they had all been spent preparing for Jack and Tooth's wedding. Now Jack stood outside at the alter in the North Pole's cathedral, his faded blue hoodie and brown jeans replaced by a crisp blue tuxedo. North stood behind the podium, a warm smile on his face. Bunnymund stood behind Jack, and Sandy behind Bunnymund.

The seats were filled with just about every legendary being known to man. The leprechaun sat beside Cupid, who sighed dreamily. Even the Krampus had been invited, though he was made to sit in the very back.

And then, as one, all of the guests rose from their seats. Jack turned to look as Tooth, the love of his life, slowly walked down the aisle, clothed in a gown of pure white swan feathers. Behind her fluttered her bridesmaids, a cluster of smaller fairies that they had rescued after Fang had left. Jack knew that Tooth was still in pain from her wing, but she had told him that it didn't matter. The pain was nothing compared to her happiness.

When Tooth reached the alter, Jack reached out and lifted the veil from her face, tucking it behind her head. She smiled at him, all the happiness and joy in the world reflected in her eyes. To the side, Jack could hear North speaking, going through the normal speech for the wedding, but he didn't pay attention. He was lost in his bride's gaze, and he never wanted to look away.

"Jack Frost," North said, snapping him out of his trance, "Do you take Toothiana to be your wife, to love her and live with her until the end of time, to protect her and watch over her in times of danger, and to spread her name far and wide so the children of the earth will believe in her?"

"I do," Jack answered.

North turned to Tooth, "Toothiana Tooth Fairy, do you take Jack Frost to be your husband, to love him and live with him until the end of time, to care for and support in everything you do, and to spread his name far and wide so that the children of the earth will believe in him?"

"I do," Tooth answered.

"Then," North concluded, "by the power vested in me, I now pronounce you man and wife. Jack, you may kiss the bride."

Jack leaned forward and gently pressed his lips against Tooth's, sealing their marriage for everyone to see. Applause erupted from the congregation, and Jack pulled back, looking at his new wife with love.

"Well, Toothiana Frost," he said, tasting her new name for the first time, "are you ready to go?"

Tooth nodded at him, and the two took each other's hands and stepped down from the alter, walking down the aisle until they had left the cathedral.

"So, what do you have planned for our honeymoon?" Tooth asked.

"Well, I hear China has some pretty amazing fireworks," Jack answered.

But before they could leave, though, they still had the reception to go to. Soon the two of them were surrounded by legendary figures, congratulations and well-wishes coming from every direction. Suddenly, Jack raised his hands.

"If I could have everyone's attention, please!" The entire area went silent. "I have a song that I would like to dedicate to my new wife, Toothiana Frost!"

"Jack, you never sing!" Tooth said, surprised.

"Trust me on this," Jack winked at her.

Leaving his wife's side for the first time since they had left the cathedral, Jack walked to the front of the room, where everyone could see him. He snapped his fingers, and a tune began to play from thin air. Looking at his wife through the crowd, he began to sing.

"You're like the rising sun,

You're like the falling rain,

You're the one I turn to,

For me to rid the pain,

I look into your eyes,

I get lifted into the skies,

I feel your touch,

It's almost haunting."

Jack sang the chorus in a whisper, his head bowed and eyes closed.

"You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel."

The guests began to clap in time with Jack's song, and happy tears began to run down Tooth's cheeks.

"Your smile is the sweetest thing,

I have ever seen,

You and me, we rid all our fears,

Nothing can ever come between,

You shine like the moon,

Your shine on the water,

The beauty of it all,

Makes me want no other."

Jack began to whisper again,

"You've set me free,

You've let me be me,

You've taken the key that opens my heart,

For I wish that we never be apart,

I would die if I were to lose you,

I would cry if I cannot see you,

I would be lost in a world,

That wouldn't be full without you."

Unable to hold herself back any longer, Tooth ran to her husband and wrapped him in a hug as he continued to sing,

"You're like the rising sun,

You're like the falling rain,

You're the one I turn to,

For me to rid the pain,"

And as Jack repeated the chorus once more, he began to rise into the air, carrying Toothiana with him, as they left the North Pole, no longer as lovers, but as husband and wife. Together now, until the end of time.

"You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel,

You're my one winged angel."
