The Wedding (Extra Part 1)
______ always prided herself on having a large and impressive vocabulary.
Nothing could describe the sheer amount of noise, chaos, mass panic and pandemonium going on right before her eyes. She wondered briefly, how this happened.
Ahh, yes. Berwald.
She stood on the landing, a door slightly ajar behind her. She turned away from the wall of noise and retreated into the empty room, not bothering with the door; she walked over to the window, opened it as far as she could and jumped out of it.
"Fwump" She landed on the grass, luckily the room had been on the ground floor otherwise she would never have done something as silly as jump out of a window wearing a wedding dress.
Yes, it was her wedding, the big day, the day every girl dreams of.
She sat in the grass for awhile, picking daises and calmly making a chain, looking for all the world a serene bride.
~*~*~*~Le Flashback 3 Years Ago~*~*~*~
'…Ch'ldr'n c'me n'xt…'
'BERWALD!!' She cried, half scolding, half greatly amused.
Berwald peered down at her, amusement twinkling in his stormy blue eyes.
______ wound her arms around his neck, pulling him closer to say quietly;
'You're not allowed to have children until you meet my parents, we are both out of school and you marry me officially.'
Berwald lent down and kissed ______ softly then drew away.
'I'll w'it as l'ng as y'u l'ke…'
~*~*~*~Le Flashback 2 and a half Years Ago~*~*~*~
'Mum, Dad, this is my…boyfriend, Berwald. Berwald, meet my parents…'
______'s father strode over to Berwald and they clasped hands in a firm handshake.
'N'ce to m''t y'u b'th.'
'I have no idea what you just said but you have a good, firm handshake and I like that.' Said ______'s father loudly.
Cue palm connecting with face.
'He said "Nice to meet you both"…' Came ______'s muffled voice from behind her hand.
He took no notice and kept on smiling at Berwald brightly.
'Just remember son, if you hurt my daughter in any way, shape or form…I'll shoot you.'
'DAD! You promised you wouldn't say stuff like that!!'
'Just protecting my daughter sweetie~'
______'s mother, who had been sitting down, now got up and walked over to Berwald, reaching up and pinching his cheeks.
'Hasn't he got one of the most adorable faces you've ever seen?!' She squealed.
'MUM! STOP MAN-HANDLING MY BOYFRIEND!'
Berwald just stood there and took it like the man he was, amusement shining in his eyes watching his wife die of embarrassment.
~*~*~*~Le Flashback 1 Year Ago~*~*~*~
Berwald and ______ sat side by side on a grassy hill, watching the sunset, ______ shivering slightly because she'd forgotten her coat in her excitement to be with Berwald.
Suddenly she felt a warm weight on her shoulders and, looking sideways, noticed that Berwald had shrugged off his jacket and had draped it round her smaller form. He put his arm around her and drew her close to his side. ______ snuggled up to him happily, earning herself a kiss on the forehead and a deep chuckle. Looking up at him she was struck, not for the first time, by Berwald's good looks. How handsome he looked when his face was bathed in the warm red-orange glow of the departing sun, dark blue eyes almost seeming to glow as they reflected light.
She blushed when he looked down at her.
'______...' He said, in his deep tones. 'I w'nt to m'rry y'u off'c'ally…'
______ looked up at him carefully. Well…they had been out of school a year now…
'Yes. I think it's time too.'
She looked down at her ring on her left hand, it gleamed in the sunset.
~*~*~*~Le Flashback 9 Months Ago~*~*~*~
They had waited 3 months before telling everybody they were officially getting married.
______ wanted a quiet ceremony because she knew Berwald didn't particularly like large crowds of people.
However. Mathias "Big mouth" Køhler spread the word faster than a bullet train and, before either of them knew it, the whole world seemed to know they were getting married. From Alfred to Ivan to Yao to Vash. Everyone knew. And they all wanted to come. Well, Vash was quite neutral about it but his adorable little sister was incredibly excited and ______ just couldn't say no to her.
Julchen and Allison were the first two to know, followed closely by the rest of the Nordic Five.
Even though everyone had left school now, ______ still fondly referred to them as the Nordic Five.
It was a habit.
~*~*~*~Le Present Day~*~*~*~
______ smiled to herself before getting up, making sure her white dress had no grass stains on it and cautiously walking toward a large window, peering in at the chaos going on inside.
Mathias was loudly exclaiming something to her husband-to-be, clapping Berwald on the back, head thrown back in laughter until Lukas's patience snapped and he stepped forward to strangle Mathias with his own tie.
Quickly, Tino stepped in, persuading Lukas to stop choking Mathias, an anxious look on his face whilst Emil simply shook his head at them all, saying something.
Mathias reacted dramatically, jumping around and waving his hands in the air.
Lukas lunged at him again but Emil stopped him by grabbing the back of his blazer, looking exasperated.
Tino looked flustered as he straightened Mathias's Danish-flag tie for him.
______ laughed quietly at there antics, eye's softly focusing on Berwald, who stood there as imposing as ever, tall and quiet. ______ knew better , he loved his deranged, unconventional "family" and enjoyed there constant, sometimes annoying, presence.
Lots of other people milled around, no one having taken there seats yet. ______ could see her mother and father chatting animatedly to the ever-polite Kiku, who looked dashing in his black suit and red tie.
She saw Feli go rushing by, laughing and waving his green tie around in one hand and a white flag on a stick in the other, Ludwig sprinting after him, yelling and looking exasperated.
And there was Alfred with Gilbert, Francis, Antonio and Arthur, all clustered in a corner, thankfully getting along.
Opps, spoke too soon, Alfred did a "hero" pose and said something, causing Gilbert to roar with laughter; Gilbird taking flight to soar around there heads and Francis to remark on something, causing an argument with Arthur.
Antonio just stood, flashing everyone his dazzling smile and slightly adjusting his suit. His tie, ______ noticed, was yellow with little red tomatoes on it.
Yao had taken it upon himself not to let Ivan drink any vodka till after the wedding, even if that meant keeping the slightly scary and very tall man company.
They were standing near the entrance to the big hall everyone was in, Ivan's face looking childishly excited, happy to be apart of this occasion and surrounded by people he knew. He was talking to Yao happily and rather fast, slipping back into his native tongue every now and then as he examined his surroundings, pointing things out.
Yao was happily responding, letting a small grin slip onto his face every now and then because of something Ivan had said, squealing at other cute things and looking excited.
______ glowed at the sight of all her friends, her heart seemed to swell with love for them all.
Then she saw Allison and Julchen hurrying into the hall, looking extremely worried.
They looked around, spotted Berwald and took off; jogging towards him with small difficulty due to the dresses they wore.
Julchen latched onto one side of him, looking up and saying something, looking upset. Allison took hold of the other side, also speaking and looking worried.
The Nordic Five had crowded round to hear what the two distressed girls were saying. Mathias jumped back, looking horror-struck, Tino immediately dissolved into near hysterics, Lukas looked alarmed and Emil started firing off questions.
Berwald stood there, listening intently before swinging round and marching out of the hall, eyes blazing.
______ was in awe, what the hell had happened to cause such panic?!
Then she realised. It was her; she was the one causing panic because no one knew where she was.
'Oh snap!' She whispered to herself, quickly gathering up her dress and fleeing towards the room she was meant to be in.
She was just below the sill when she heard the door bang open and a deep voice call out;
Berwald's voice sounded rough with emotion and ______ couldn't blame him, it totally looked like she'd just dumped him at the altar. She cupped her hands outward over her mouth and called back;
'Berwald! I'm outside!'
Berwald's head and shoulders poked out of the window and he looked down at her, ______ could see relief written all over his face as he gripped the windowsill so hard his knuckles turned white.
'Wh't 're y'u d'ing d'wn th'r'?' He said sternly, scolding her slightly for making him freak out so bad.
______ looked sheepishly up at him, doing her best to look innocent by clasping her hands behind her back and twisting her upper body from side to side, making her white dress rustle with the movement.
'I jumped out.' Came the innocent reply.
Berwald sighed, closing his eyes briefly before opening them again and holding out his hands for her to take.
'T'ke m' h'nds, I'll l'ft y'u up…'
'NOooO~' His bride squealed, jumping back and looking up at him indignantly. 'What if my dress gets dirty?!'
'F'ne, st'y th'r'.' And he withdrew, disappearing from sight.
______ decided to be a good girl and do what her beloved Berwald said. 'Sides, she felt a bit guilty for making the usually stoic man panic.
5 minutes later, Berwald appeared, having just rounded the corner and found ______ sitting down again, humming quietly to herself and making more daisy chains.
He smiled at the sight, committing it to his memory forever before striding over and crouching down to her level. ______ stopped humming and looked up to see Berwald crouching next to her.
He put his large hand on her head, careful not to mess up her hair and laughed gently when she made a noise of delight and attempted to nuzzle him.
'I'm sorry Ber, I hope I didn't cause too much of a panic.' Said ______ guiltily, re-arranging his dark blue tie.
'It's f'ne, y'u 're s'fe 'nd th't's all th't m'tt'rs to me.' Berwald kissed her forehead, kneeling down and hugging her close.
______ felt tears prick the corners of her eyes as she buried her face into his chest and hugged him back, she just couldn't comprehend how she'd ended up with the most perfect man on the planet but it made her so happy to know she had.
______ and Berwald pulled apart to stare over at Mathias, who was holding a camera triumphantly and grinning like a maniac.
Berwald glared his disapproval; ______ just looked on in disbelief before yelling;
'Mathias!! You are SUCH a MOMENT RUINER!!'
