Carly adjusted Akiza's dress a little as Sherry put her veil on and lastly slid her elbow length white gloves on. Finally she looked at herself in the full length mirror she was beautiful. She was wearing a white wedding dress she had designed herself and tailored for her as it was a floor length version of her red dress she wore on her six month anniversary so long ago. Her bangs were gone as she had them cut shorter and kept them pulled back and in place with a red headband. Yusei said he liked her hair this way. Finally Luna put her veil over her face and Lola handed her the bouquet of flowers.
Carly was no longer wearing her trademark glasses as she swapped out for contacts. Everyone liked her with contacts better as it really brought out her eyes. Luna, Carly, Raven, Sherry, and Lola were all in matching red dresses. Akiza made Luna her maid of honor and the other four understood, but Akiza still thought of the other four as her sisters as well, and truly never felt more happy as she finally had people she could call siblings, as she now had four sisters and four brothers. She couldn't believe those eight considered her family.
Yusei was getting ready as well, he was wearing an all black tux with a dark blue tie that matched his old jacket. Only instead of it being a rental tuxedo like the one he wore so long ago, this one was his own. But he was still having trouble with his tie yet again. Jack and Crow were in Tuxedos as well. Jack had a red tie with his and crow was wearing a darker orange one
"Damnit, Jack you think-"
"Honestly Yusei, you still don't know how to tie a tie?" Jack asked him as he tied it properly
"Well that's why I just bought a clip on tie instead." Crow said
"How would you ever survive if I wasn't here for this kind of thing?" Jack asked
"I don't know, we'd probably figure it out... eventually." Crow said
During the planning Yusei couldn't decide who he wanted more to be his best man and he mad them both his best man.
"Okay, you got the ring?" Yusei asked Jack
"Right here." Jack said as he held the small black velvet jewelry box with Akiza's ring in it
They then went to the alter and waited. In the front row were Rally, Blitz, Tank, Nervin, Bolt, Blister, Bruno, Leo, Dexter, Martha, Setsuko, even Yanagi. Filling up the rest of the pews were various relatives from around the world and a number of kids who were now grown up who were at the orphanage with Yusei, Jack, and Crow, even the three kids Crow took care of.
Raven was starting to talk to Crow about maybe adopting them....
Finally they started the song and everyone saw Akiza walking down the aisle in her dress with her father.
"God, she looks amazing!" Yusei thought to himself, he could feel his heart pounding as the one of the greatest days of his life so far was today. As another day would be coming up in a while, as they made the announcement last night, Setsuko was in tears of joy and Hideo was simply wide eyed but hugged his son in law and gave him his congratulations
Akiza was now standing in front of him. The pastor began the speech.
"Dearly beloved. We are gathered here to to bring together these two people in the bonds of holy matrimony. Let's this bond last forever. Let their love never fade. And let whatever future that is in store for them be bright with color. Now the exchanging of the vows. Akiza."
Her heart was racing as she looked into those Royal Blue eyes. "Yusei. Ever since we met eighteen years ago, I knew we were meant to be together. That first day at duel academy when you came in, I knew in my heart you were the one who would make me the happiest person. You freed me of the darkside in me and still wanted to be with me. You are my morning star, Yusei. As when all seems dark, you light up the night and sky and shine like no one I've ever met." Akiza said
"Akiza, I always had a feeling you were the one for me. Others have come and gone but you were the one who the few people in my who never left. I couldn't believe I was dating you for awhile as nobody ever understood how deeply you cared. I never stopped thinking about. It was you who kept me going during the toughest of times. You are my beautiful black Rose, Akiza, while you have your thorns your just as beautiful as one that has just blossomed. I will spend the rest of my days making you happy and putting a smile on your face." Yusei said
"Now the exchanging of the rings."
They each then got the others ring out. Yusei then gently placed her ring with the black gem with the outline of a Rose in the diamond itself on her finger. She then placed his ring which was shaped like one of the wheels on his duel runner with tiny writing engraved on the inside as it said:
"I am your Morning Rose
on his finger.
"Let these rings symbolize the love they share and bonds that run strong." He said
"Now, Akiza repeat after me. I Akiza Izinski, take Yusei Fudo, to be my lawfully wedded husband, in sickness and in health, till death do us part." The pastor recited for Akiza
"I Akiza Izinski, take Yusei Fudo, to be my lawfully wedded husband, in sickness and in health, till death do us part." Akiza recited as well
"Now Yusei, repeat after me. I Yusei Fudo, take Akiza Izinski, to be my Lawfully wedded wife, in sickness and in health, till death do us part." The pastor recited for Yusei
"I Yusei Fudo, take Akiza Izinski, to be my Lawfully wedded wife, in sickness and in health, till death do us part." Yusei recited as he looked deep into her Hazel eyes
"Now do you, Akiza Izinski, take this man to be you lawfully wedded husband?" The pastor asked her
"I do." Akiza answered
"And do you, Yusei Fudo, take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?" The pastor asked him
"I do." Yusei answered
"Then I now pronounce you, husband, and wife. You may kiss the bride."
Yusei then lifted her veil and she wrapped her arms around his neck and leaned in slightly as he placed his hands on the small of her back and pulled her in slightly as well and their lips met. Their eyes closed and their lips locked, the crowd cheered and clapped. Finally they ran outside and headed out to have their honeymoon, and start their new life together at last...
