Love Halfway Around The World

Skylar and her friends were just trying to enjoy a trip in Australia. She and her three best girls weren't looking for any kind of romance to come their way, and frankly Skylar didn't really want it. What happens when she accidentally knocks over Luke Hemmings in the street and he gets hooked? What about when her friends Mary, Emily, and Claire fall for the other three? Will love work out or cause trouble between best friends?

17. The Wedding

2 years later

 

Luke’s POV

Aiden popped the question to Maya about a year ago and of course she said yes, and finally after a lot of planning and rearranging it was time for the wedding. It was also time for me to ask Skylar. I had the perfect ring and the perfect way to ask her while at the wedding.

I was downstairs waiting for Skylar to come down; when she finally did my jaw dropped ten stories. Skylar had her hair curled to perfection and was wearing a floor length strapless silver dress.

“How do I look?” she asked nervous and looking down. I chuckled and lifted her face to look into my eyes.

“I just hope you don’t outshine the bride.” We had all seen Maya’s dress. It was simple but very beautiful and she looked amazing in it. She had asked Sky to come get the dress with her, and Skylar can always find the perfect dress for anyone. “Come on, let’s go, we can’t have a wedding without the maid of honor.” I smiled and took her hand leading her out the door. The drive there was short and before we knew it we were at a small and beautiful church. Skylar jumped out of the car and ran around to the back as I gave the keys to the valet and ran after her. When I finally caught up her arm was around Aiden’s waist and his arm over Sky’s shoulders. She stood with a smile and they were both talking to Conor who was wearing the exact same suit as me right down to the silver tie, which made sense since we were both groomsman. He also had his arm around a girl with long blonde hair and green eyes standing next to him, wearing the same dress as Sky. I smiled and walked over.

“Hey Conor its been a while.” I said giving him a bro hug, which he returned.

“Good to see you again Luke. It seems you and Skylar are doing good. I’ve never seen her so happy. You should come say hi to everyone else, it’s been a while since they’ve seen you or the guys.” Conor smiled at me as his blue eyes lit up, and then he gestured to the girl next to him. “Oh and this is my girlfriend Chris by the way.” Conor gestured to the girl next to him.

“Hi Chris I’m Luke.” I said shaking her hand. “Actually I need to borrow Conor for a minute.” I walked to another room with Conor, and pulled to ring out of my pocket.

“Dude, you’re proposing to Skylar?” Conor asked excited, “What took you so long?” he laughed and I cracked a smile

“I didn’t want her to run away if I asked too soon, it would kill me, if she left. You’ll think she’ll say yes?” I asked nervous

“Mate she is totally in love with you, like full blown in love. The way Aiden smiles at Maya is just like the way Sky smiles at you. If anything Skylar was probably hinting at you to ask her when she told Aiden to ask Maya. I can’t believe it took you two years. Then again, Aiden wouldn’t be too happy if you asked when you’ve only been dating Sky for five months and living with her for one, but I know she’ll say yes. I also know she’ll love that the diamond is also in the shape of a heart, it’s different, creative, and one of a kind. That ring is meant for Skylar. Congratulations and take good care of my best friend, or I will kill you if Aiden doesn’t do it first.” Conor smiled and gave me a bro hug as Aiden came in and I quickly put the ring back hopping Aiden didn’t see. He gave me a slightly suspicious look but quickly changed his expression back to normal and gave us a smile.

“Hey boys it’s finally show time. Aiden announced looking quite nervous, but excited. “Conor go walk your lovely girl Chris down the aisle and Luke you…” Aiden pointed a finger at me “…go walk my lovely sister down” He winked and then walked out to stand by the priest. Conor and I nodded and left to escort our ladies.

 

Skylar’s POV

The whole ceremony was beautiful I got to walk down the aisle with Luke and had all my friends there. Maya came down the aisle looking like an angel and Aiden couldn’t keep the smile off of his face, I was worried his face would split in half from smiling so much. I was so happy that Aiden finally found someone he wants to be with forever.

Later on I was dancing with Aiden, which I almost never got the chance to do, because he doesn’t dance. He was crap at dancing but I didn’t care. I loved to able to have the chance to dance with him. Someone tapped Aiden’s shoulder and he turned to see Luke.

“Mind if I cut in?” Luke smiled

“Go ahead, my sister is too good of a dancer for me anyway.” Aiden smiled, slightly bowed and returned to Maya who was talking to our parents.

“I hope I didn’t cut your dance too short.” Luke smiled as he pulled me into his arms

“Don’t worry. I actually would rather dance with you because Aiden can’t even dance. You…kind of can” I smirked at Luke, he chuckled and held me close while swaying back and forth just like the night we met.

 

Luke’s POV

 

I held Skylar close and danced for about ten minutes, and then separated from her, she looked up at me confused. I just smiled and led her to the stage where the boys were all standing with their instruments, and Claire, Mary, Maya, and Emily were waiting at the front for Skylar. I left Sky with the girls and hopped up on stage. I grabbed the microphone and started to speak. “Everyone, first I would like to congratulate Aiden and Maya on their marriage.” Everyone clapped before I continued, “I have something important to ask my beautiful girlfriend Skylar.” I smiled and the boys began to play to tune to marry me by Jason Durelo. Everyone began to awe and Skylar started in shock.

 

A hundred and five is the number that comes to my head 
When I think of all the years I wanna be with you 
Wake up every morning with you in my bed
 that's precisely what I plan to do

And you know one of these days when I get my money right 
Buy you everything and show you all the finer things in life
 We'll forever be in love, so there ain't no need to rush
 But one day, I won't be able to ask you loud enough

I'll say will you marry me 
I swear that I will mean it 
I'll say will you marry me
 Singing (Woah oh woah)
(Woah oh woah)
(Woah oh woah oh)

How many girls in the world can make me feel like this? 
Baby I don't ever plan to find out 
The more I look, the more I find the reasons why
 you're the love of my life

You know one of these days when I get my money right 
Buy you everything and show you all the finer things in life
 We'll forever be in love, so there ain't no need to rush
 But one day, I won't be able to ask you loud enough

I'll say will you marry me
 I swear that I will mean it 
I'll say will you marry me

And if I lost everything
In my heart it means nothing
 'Cause I have you, girl I have you
 So get right down on bended knee
Nothing else would ever be
 Better, better 
The day when I say

I'll say will you marry me 
I swear that I will mean it 
I'll say will you marry me

I'll say will you marry me 
I swear that I will mean it 
I'll say will you marry me

Got me singing
(Woah oh woah)
(Woah oh woah)
(Woah oh woah oh)
Got me singing
(Woah oh woah)
(Woah oh woah)
(Woah oh woah oh)

A hundred and five is the number that comes to my head 
When I think of all the years I wanna be with you
 Wake up every morning with you in my bed 
That's precisely what I plan to do.

 

I came to the end of the song and looked at Skylar who looked like she was about the cry. I hopped down from the stage and knelt down on one knee in front of Sky and took out the ring. “Skylar Rose Porter, will you marry me?” I smiled at her with hope.

“Yes, YES” Skylar finally broke down crying tears of joy as she jumped into my arms. I spun her around so many times I got dizzy, before I finally set her down and slid the ring onto her finger. She smiled and was still crying before passionately kissing me and then hugged me again. It all turned into a huge group hug with the boys, all of Sky’s friends, then Aiden and Maya. Skylar’s mother was crying while her father looked a little displeased but accepted it when he saw how happy Skylar and all her friends were. He did like me; he was just protective of his daughter like any father. I was so happy I was finally going to be with Skylar for the rest of my life. I held her close in the middle of that group hug and wanted to hold her in my arms forever. Now I knew I would.

 

Conor’s POV

 

I felt relived and happy when Luke showed me the ring. When he said he finally decided that he was ready to propose to Skylar I was relieved. It took him two years to get up the nerve to do it. In the past two years I’ve kept in close connection with Skylar, just like always, but even more so since she got with Luke and finally had a boyfriend. I kept watch closely because Skylar is my best friend and I had to make sure Luke didn’t hurt her. When she is with Luke she puts on the smile I remember her having when we were little and can light up the world. I can tell that she’s never been happier in her life. Luke has changed her. Before Luke came along it was hard to put the great smile on Skylar’s face and now it’s rare for her not to smile. I really love the girl she is now and it is all thanks to Luke. True I may have been in love with Skylar at one point, but I love being her friend a lot more than having a crush, and she is perfect with Luke.

As soon as Luke asked Skylar to marry him and she said yes I practically sprinted to her and hugged her as everyone else joined in along with Luke’s friends, then Aiden and Maya. All I ever cared about was Sky’s well being and of course my girlfriend Chris. She reminds me a lot of Sky and makes me happy like Sky. My best friend just got engaged to the only guy that could make her feel love and I couldn’t have picked a better guy myself. Congrats Skylar and Luke, I love you both.
