So, that's it, the final chapter. I must say I feel quite sad that this story has reached his end, but you can't make a story larger than what it's supposed to be. I hope everyone has enjoyed it.
They hated hospitals but well, he saw their mother die in one, so I couldn't blame them. Matty always had been the strong one between he and Jeff, but when he saw the big, white hospital he had the same frightened look in his face.
"Are you sure you want to do this Matty?" I asked.
"Yeah. Yeah." He smiled at me and then at Jeff, who smiled in return.
And now, Jeff and I were outside the surgery room, waiting, dying while Matty, my Matty, was inside that room.
"He'll be okay, Addy." My future brother-in-law said and then sat next to me since he had been pacing for about an hour.
"I know he will, but I can't stop worrying." I said.
We didn't say anything for about twenty minutes; we just stayed there, looking the white wall in front of us. It was then that another doctor passed with a blond woman in a bed. And then I noticed that Jeff was trembling, without a word I gathered him into my arms. I never met her mother, of course, but I had seen her in photographs. No wonder Jeff had reacted to the blond woman.
"You okay?" I asked softly, stroking his hair.
"Y-yeah." He smiled and closed his eyes.
About thirty minutes later a nurse came out. "Matthew Hardy." We stood up. "Are you family of him?"
"I'm his brother. He is his fiancé." Jeff said. "What happened?"
"The operation went awfully well. He is being moved to his room. He is sedated, but if you want to see him, please follow me." We did so, eagerly. "Room 676, here it is. He'll have to stay for two weeks and if everything is fine he'll be cleared to go back home." I opened the door and my breath catch in my throat.
"He looks so…" Jeff didn't finish, he just approach his brother and cupped his cheek.
Fragile. That was what he looked like. His strong aura gone, his tan skin looked so pale, his hair was a complete mess, and he was connected to a couple of machines. I sat on a chair next to the bed and took his hand, kissing it softly. Thank god he wasn't cold at all.
"I'll wait outside. I want to call Randy." Jeff said as he patted my shoulder.
I just stayed there, his hand in mine, kissing it from time to time. I don't know how long I stayed there, I just know that he finally opened his beautiful eyes and looked around, confused.
"Hey baby." I whispered and he smiled when he saw me.
"Adds…" He mumbled, voice husky, so I got up and poured a glass of water.
"There, drink." I held the glass and he drank, slowly, until he finished it. "How are you feeling sweetheart?" I asked, caressing his cheek tenderly.
"Tired." He answered and I chuckled. "Where's Jeff?" My brunette asked, looking around for his brother.
"Outside. I'll get him." I dropped a kiss on his lips and then opened the door. "Jeffrey, Matty's awake." I said to him and he said goodbye to whomever was on the phone with him and hung up.
He entered the room and I followed. "Hey big brother." He said, his accent thick, kissing his cheek softly. "How are ya?"
"Tired." He smiled and caressed his brother's hand. "How are ya feeling?"
"Ah'm fine. The guys say hi and send ya their best wishes." He told him. "And the three rookies say hi too." He explained, stroking Matt's hand with his thumb. "Nurse said ya'll be cleared in two weeks if everything is fine."
"Two weeks? That's to long." Matty whined and I chuckled, sitting on the bed and kissing his hand again.
"I know sweetheart, but they'll go by fast, you'll see." I mumbled. "We'll be with you all the time?"
"Yeah, promise." I whispered. "Plus, you are receiving VIP treatment which means that you'll have good food." I reminded him and he nodded. "You should get some more sleep." I kissed his forehead and smiled against his skin. "I love you."
"I love you too." He answered and then smiled at his brother. "And you too. You two are the best brother and fiancé ever." He said and then closed his eyes, his hands squeezing mine.
It wasn't long until he was sleep again. "Are you staying Adam?"
"Yeah." I nodded and then sat on the chair again, still holding his hand. "You can go back to the hotel if you want to. I know you hate hospitals as much as Matty." He sighed in relief and gave me a quick hug before disappearing.
The two weeks went by quite quickly, actually. Matt was almost recovered and there hadn't been any problems. That very same day he got released we were going back to Tampa and Jeff to Tennessee, which meant that we were taking different planes.
"Call me when you land, okay Jeff?" Matt said, embraced with his brother.
"Of course. Take care."
"Yeah. You too." They kissed each other on the cheeks and then we split ways.
We are already in the plane when he rested his head in my shoulder. "What is the matter, babe?" I asked.
"Nothing. I'm just happy I'm out of that hospital." He replied. "I really wanted to kill that nurse with her accent. Always saying how great is in here." He growled and I laughed.
"You are cute." I mumbled and he growled. I closed my eyes just to snap they open again. "What are you doing?" I whispered when his hand massaged my thigh, way to close to my cock to be something innocent.
That and that the words Matthew Moore Hardy and innocent didn't go together. Never.
"Nothing?" He offered, sitting straight, his back was hurting slightly. He wouldn't tell me, but I could see that he frowned, almost impossible to see if you weren't used to his body language.
"Yeah, sure." I growled and then I saw his mischievous look in his eyes. "Don't even think about it."
"Too late." He mumbled and then threw the blanket over us as he snuggled closer to me, trying to find a position where his back wouldn't hurt at all. Seeing that he wouldn't back out I opened my legs a bit more, giving him more room. "That was easy." He teased and I growled. "I promise you won't regret it."
And damn me if he wasn't right. Two weeks without having any type of intimate moment with Matt wasn't good for me. I felt his fingers opening the fly and I shuddered with anticipation.
Thank god the first class area was almost deserted, only two more couple in the front.
"What are you thinking about?" He asked, whispering in my ear.
"About how lucky we are." I answered, sighing when his hand found his way inside by underwear. "Matty…" I moaned in a whisper.
"Shh… Keep it low." He muttered and I closed my eyes, I knew I couldn't resist the sight of him liking his lips without wanting him to fuck me.
I didn't last long, not when his thumb was running on the head of my cock and having him whispering dirty words on my ear as he nibbled it. He covered the head of my cock with a napkin (where the hell did he get it, by the way?) so I wouldn't stain anything with my seed.
"Matty…" I breathed out, opening my eyes.
"You look so sexy…" He whispered and then kissed my neck.
I chuckled and then kissed him fully on the lips. "Should I return the favour?" I mumbled into his ear and he smiled.
"It would be nice." He said and I closed the curtain so we would have a bit more of privacy. "Adds?" He asked when I dropped to my knees.
"What ya doing?" He asked when I opened the zipper of his pants and pushed it down along the underwear.
"Blow you." I answered and then licked the side of his cock, moaning softly at the taste. His wonderful, amazing, unique taste.
After a few minutes of licking, gently biting and sucking his head I deep throated him, looking at his through my eyelashes; he looked so beautiful, all red and moaning in silence, his mouth open but not a sound coming out of it. He didn't last long either.
"How you feeling?" I asked as I sat onto my seat again and embraced him.
"Fucking amazing." He said and pecked my cheek. "Thank you Addy."
"Not a problem. Not a problem indeed." I replied. "Mind if I sleep?" I questioned and he shook his head. "Love you, darling."
"Love you, too." He sighed and I saw how he looked at his ring.
We stayed two weeks at home and then I went back on the road with Adam, but I still had to wait three more weeks to get back on the ring. What I didn't expect was, the guys to throw a party the day we came back. I had a great time, hearing about what happened while I was out.
It was the morning of the day of my comeback. I smiled at the memory of the party; they were completely crazy. Then Adam's lips pressed on my cheeks, his arm around my waist as he pulled me closer to him.
"G'morning babe." He mumbled. "Are you excited?"
"Hell yeah." I breathed out, kissing his shoulder. "Are you?"
"Of course I am. I'm going to see my soon-to-be-husband going back to the ring, beautiful and radiant as ever." He answered. "I'm just so happy that you are going to be back. With Jeff. With me. In the ring." I smiled and nodded.
"It'll be so great. And we will rule the extreme matches again. Those kids have no idea how to do it." I joked.
"Damn right. And TLC matches will be on the list again." He replied and I laughed. "Matthew?" His tone was serious now. And it worried me.
"What will you say if I'd told you that we are getting married… tonight?" He asked and I blinked.
"We are getting married… tonight. At RAW." He mumbled and I got up. "Honey?"
"But, but… I don't have any suit, and we don't have the rings, and…" I was freaking out, completely, utterly freaking out.
"Matt, Matt, darling… Matthew!" I stopped when he yelled my name, his eyes glowing with amusement. "Here, sit and calm down." I sat next to him and he hugged me, kissing my head. "Everything is settled: your brother has your suit, I picked the rings while you were in the hospital. Everything is find, but I want to know, is it ok with you being a public ceremony?" He brushed my hair out of my face and I leaned to kiss him on the lips.
"More than okay. I don't care if it's just us, I don't care if the whole WWE Universe is there, as long as it is with you, I don't mind where we are getting married." I whispered and kissed his cheek.
"Same goes here." Addy replied and I kissed him on the cheek. "But Vince told me that we only get a week for our honeymoon."
"Everyday I spent with you is like a honeymoon." I responded and shrugged.
"You are so sweet." He kissed my neck and the bit it softly. "Vince also said that we will have to wait a bit before we can go to the honeymoon, though."
"That's fine with me." I mumbled and got up. "I'm going to shower." I said and he nodded.
It wasn't long until we were going down stairs in the restaurant, joining some of the guys that were already there. We sat with Mark and John, who hugged me so hard I felt the air escape from my lungs.
"Hey Johnny. What's up?" I asked, patting his back.
"I'm glad you are back. You had me so worried." The Californian mumbled and I chuckled. "It's just… you are like a big brother for me."
"And you are like a little brother to me Johnny." I said and then we sat down, my hand in top of Adam's.
"So, have you told him?" Mark asked Adam.
"Yeah. He said it was alright." I looked at him questioningly. "About the wedding, love."
"Oh yeah. Wait. You guys knew?" I questioned, looking at them.
"Hell yeah. Everyone knows Matty boy." The older said and then laughed at my face. "C'mon, we had to help Adam out with the planning. He was like a nervous wreck." He teased and he blushed, stuttering and then I kissed his cheek.
"You are the best Addy." I said and he nodded.
"I know." He replied and I rolled my eyes.
Still Matt's PoV:
And now here I am, on the ring, dressed in a full black wedding suit with Adam next to me. Everything is dark, the public on their seats. I can hear the mumbling from the crowd; none of them know why the lights are off. My hands ghost over Adam's arm until I find his hand and I hold it, squeezing it gently. He returns it. I can feel him shaking slightly.
"Hey, babe, everything is going to be great. Don't worry." I whisper and he pecks my cheek.
"I know… But I am still nervous." He mumbles.
"And so I am. I'm getting married, how could we not be nervous." I say and he giggles.
And then, Vince (who was actually licensed to perform marriages) starts talking. "I know that every single one of you is here to see wrestling and that you are eager, but before we have a little surprise for you. Sorry, not little, a huge, surprise for you. You are about to witness the first, real, legal same-sex marriage in the history of WWE." He announces and then the lights turn on, blinding us for a couple of seconds.
And I, we, hear the public, cheering, yelling in ecstasies when they saw us in the ring, Jeff, Jay and Stephanie in one corner, Vince in the ramp and, all around the ring every single wrestler who works in any of the WWE's brand plus the commentators. The rest of the stuff is with the public. Vince gets in position and starts speaking.
"Here we have two very special people," He begins, the crowd, for once, silent. "Very special wrestlers, very crazy too." Everyone chuckles at that. "Very special individuals. That is clear to anyone who watches them on the ring, but also to anyone who meets them off the ring. They had their own ups and downs, as every single one of us knows. I might say that I feel really sorry for what I did to you two, tearing you apart, hurting you without realising." We shake our heads, letting him know that everything is all right. "It surprised everyone when they announced they were going out. Not a very… subtle move to kiss on the street, but it did the work." He jokes and we blush furiously. "Anyway, getting to the point… Have you come here without being coerced Matt, freely and willingly?"
"Yes." We answer at the same time.
"Perfect. Please, join your hands and Matt, if you'd say your vows."
Adam and I had agreed earlier this morning to just go by the Roman-Catholic vows used in the weddings, skipping any part that involved God, because with such short notice I didn't have time to write my own vows and he didn't do it because… because he is Adam.
I turn around and hold his hands in mine, smiling at him before I start talking. "I, Matthew Moore Hardy, take you, Adam Joseph Copeland, to be my… husband, to have and to hold you from this day forward, through good and through bad, through richness and through poorness, through sickness and through healthiness, to love you and respect you, until death do us part. This is my solemn promise." I finish.
"Very well, Adam, if you please."
"I, Adam Joseph Copeland, take you, Matthew Moore Hardy, to be my husband, to have and to hold you from this day forward, through good and through bad, through richness and through poorness, through sickness and through healthiness, to love you and respect you, until death do us part. This is my solemn promise." He recites and then we turn back to face Vince.
"If anyone has an objection why this man and this woman should not be wed, speak now or forever hold your peace." Vince says and, thank god, no one says anything. I kind of was expecting Lita to show up and ruin the wedding. "Please, the rings." We all turn to the side of the ring that has no ropes and we say, how Randy puts Ruby on the floor and she comes to the ring, with both rings on a red cushion. "Thank you sweetheart. Do you all know Ruby?" he asks to the public, who laughs at the interruption. "I'll take as a yes. Anyway, if you take the rings." We do and wait for him to proceed. "Matthew, do you take Adam as your husband, do you promise to love and respect him, protect him, forsaking all others and dedicating yourself only to him?" Vince asks me.
"I do." I reply, staring at him with all the love I have for him.
"Adam, do you take Matthew as your husband, do you promise to love and respect him, protect him, forsaking all others and dedicating yourself only to him?
"Of course I do." He replies.
"Please, exchange your rings." I take his hand and slide his ring on his ring finger and then he does the same. "Great. You may kiss… each other, I guess." Everyone chuckles and then we kiss his hands in my neck, mine in his'. Meanwhile, I see Jeff and Jay signing the wedding paper thing. "Matt, Adam, if you please." We sign the paper and I sigh: we are officially married. I feel myself being pulled and I find myself between Jeff's arms.
"Jeff." I whisper, returning the hug.
"Ah'm so happy for ya." He whispers and then he smiles. "Wait here, Ah have a couple of threats to deliver to yar husband." He says and I blink.
"Whoa, whoa, stop there baby brother. Ya ain't threating my husband!" I said as I lift Ruby, who hugged me.
And suddenly, everyone starts clapping, yelling, cheering and some of them, crying. I give Ruby back to Jeff and I hug Adam, who kisses the top of my head.
"Should we get out of here?" He asks.
"Hell yeah!" We start going back to the backstage area when Vince stops us. "What is it?"
"Don't you have something to announce to the crowd?"
Shit. I almost forget that this was my kind of coming back. "Oh yeah." I take the mic. "So, hum… We just wanted to thank every single one of you to coming over tonight. I also have something to tell you. This was, beside my marriage with Adam my come back to the WWE ring." Two seconds of full silence go by and then everyone starts cheering again. "Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you."
And then we leave the arena, before Vince can stop us one more time, and go to our hotel room.
Once in the room, I start kissing him hungrily, pushing him against the wall.
I believe that everyone can imagine what happened for the next… three hours or so. And now, I'm lying next to my husband, who is breathing fast and unevenly.
"Yes Addy?" I say, trying to regain my normal breathing.
"I love you." He says, kissing my face.
"I… love you too." I reply and I embrace him. "I could never be happier." He chuckles and lets me rest my head on his chest. "I think we should change the bed sheets, Addy." I mumble.
"I'm to tired. We are already soaked in sweat and other things, we'll take a long hot bath tomorrow." He says and I nod, happy that he didn't want to change them. "Good night, love."
"Good night, darling." I reply as I fall sleep.
Yes, this day had been the best day of my life.
I'm sorry there isn't any proper lemon, but I've been having a major writer block when it comes to lemon. I'm sorry. Anyway, I hope you have liked it.
About the wedding, I wrote it following the Spanish customary on both religious (Roman-Catholic, obviously) and civil marriages but his is just because I have no idea how a protestant marriage is.
I want to thank everyone that has supported me through this fic!
