Shadows & Roses


"Excuse me? Can I have everyone's attention?"

I looked up to see Tamaki standing up on the other side of the table. He called out once more but no one but Kyoya, Haruhi and I seemed to hear him. Sighing Tamaki reached down and grabbed his champagne glass and his fork.

Kyoya quickly reached up to try and stop him, foreseeing the outcome just as Haruhi and I did. However before he could even get a hand on Tamaki's wrist to stop him, he had knocked the fork against the glass. To his credit there were 2 soft 'ping' sounds that drew everyone's attention before the glass shattered in his hand.

"Good one Tono!" The twins chorused from the end of the table.

Tamaki shot them a glare before putting what was left of his shattered glass down on the table before looking around, clearing his throat.

"As the best man I believe it is my duty to make a toast the night before the wedding." he said.

"Tamaki you don't have to." Kyoya said looking up at him.

"Nonsense!" Tamaki grinned before looking at the others.

"I have known Kyoya since we were but mere boys in middle school. When I arrived in Japan he gladly took me under his wing and showed me the wonderful sights of this beautiful country. From there we became the best of friends and together started the Ouran Academy Host Club. Thanks to the Host Club we made lifelong friends and I met my gorgeous wife." Tamaki said and smiled at Haruhi who gave a small smile back.

"Kyoya was the only thing that kept our little club floating at times. If it wasn't for him we would've gone bankrupt before we could even get off the ground. However we thrived and a couple of years later a young woman by the name of Sora Nishimura walked through the doors."

"It wasn't long before Kyoya was smitten with her. Though he never admitted it to me I could see the change in my friend. He had a sparkle in his eye that was different from the usual devious one that lurked there and a different aura around him whenever Sora was in the room."

"Over the next few years things were up and down for Kyoya and Sora. I won't go into detail because I'm sure most of you know the complicated story but after we all left Ouran we all believed that Kyoya and Sora were done. However they both proved us wrong, showing us just how strong true love is."

"Now on the eve of the wedding Sora I ask that you do me one favor. I have no siblings to speak of but I consider Kyoya my brother and because of that I ask that you take care of him. Don't let him work too many hours and remind him that the world isn't such a serious place. It doesn't hurt him to laugh once in a while. And to you both I offer my congratulations and all of my love." Tamaki said and picked up the champagne glass that the waiter had replaced and raised it in the air.

Everyone toasted the two of us and I stood up and walked around the table.

"Thank you Tamaki, that was beautiful." Kyoya smiled and hugged his friend.

"It really was. And I promise that I will take care of him. If not I'll manhandle him a little." I winked.

"That's all I ask." Tamaki laughed and pressed kiss to my cheek before I took my seat again.

I had hardly sat down when there was another clink of a glass and I saw Honey stand up, this time everyone turned to look at him.

"Since Tama-Chan gave a speech for the groom I decided that I'd give one for the bride." Honey said and smiled at me.

"I've known Sora-Chan since we were babies. We went to different schools but we spent almost every holiday at each others houses. Other than Takashi, she was my best friend."

"During my last year of school Sora and I found out that we were both going to go to Ouran together. Even though the circumstances weren't the best we were excited. That was where she met Kyo-Chan. They were both really smart and got along great. In fact he even saved her life once when she accidentally ate coconut. After that he even brought her home and took care of her because her parents were out of town and so was I."

I saw Kyoya smile and I felt my face heat up as I remembered when he'd taken me home. It had been the same time we'd gotten back together.

"Things went bad a while after that and it was a long time before Kyo-Chan and Sora-Chan saw each other again. Sora and I got married then but I always knew that she should be with Kyo-Chan. While we were married she gave me the best gift ever…out son Taro and because of that I will always be grateful to her."

"Nearly a year ago Kyo-Chan came back into our lives and I knew it was only a matter of time before they fell in love again. Soon they did and now they're getting married. Tama-Chan asked Sora-Chan to take care of his best friend but I know I don't have to ask that of Kyo-Chan. I know that no matter what he'll take care of her. They've been through so much and they still love one another. And I know that they will be happy together forever. So to Kyo-Chan and Sora-Chan!" Honey smiled and held up his glass.

The toasts went around again and smiled warmly at Honey before getting up and walking over, hugging him tightly.

"Thank you." I smiled.

"It's no problem! I'm glad you liked it!" Honey grinned.

"I did." I smiled and hugged him again.

"Okay everyone! It's getting late! I think the bride needs to get home and get some sleep for her big day!" Noemi yelled suddenly.

I looked at Honey's watch and saw it was nearly 11. I had to be up at 7 and god only knew how much I hated getting up that early. The sooner I got to bed the better.

I said a quick goodbye to Honey, Mori and the twins who were sitting on the other side of the table from them before moving back towards my seat.

"Tamaki, please don't let Kyoya over sleep tomorrow okay? You're the only one who can get him to actually get up without having to resort to physical force." I said as I walked towards where he was saying goodbye to Haruhi. Haruhi and Noemi were my bridesmaids and would be staying the night with me.

"Don't worry. I'll get him awake somehow." Tamaki promised before giving me a hug.

"And you…don't murder your groomsmen tomorrow when they try to get you up. Got it Mr. Shadow King?" I asked.

"As long as they don't take idiotic measures I can keep that promise." Kyoya replied.

I shook my head, "Behave okay? And I'll see you at the end of the aisle."

"And I'll be waiting." he said and with that pressed a final kiss before heading out with the rest of the Host Club and my brother in tow.

Haruhi, Noemi and I headed to the house I still shared with Honey. Kyoya and I had bought a house a couple weeks before and it had just closed the previous week. All of my things were packed up and over there with the exception of what I needed the next day for my wedding.

We were going to have it at a botanical garden under a grove of sakura trees that were in full bloom. The whole of the Host Club would be Kyoya's groomsmen with Tamaki as Best Man and Haruhi would be my Maid Of Honor just as she had been at my first wedding. Kaori and Tamiko would serve as flower girls, Taro and Riku were ring bearers and finally Mattieu would have the job of carrying my train.

My dress was rather simple. Just a white satin dress with a train and a lacy veil. I didn't want the cream puff style gown I'd had the first time I'd gotten married so this time I'd gone the other direction. It didn't matter though. I was marrying Kyoya. I could wear a potato sack for all I cared.

In the morning Haruhi and Noemi would be the only ones that would be helping me get ready. When I had married Honey I hadn't had control over anything and had ended up sitting for hours on end while people poked and prodded at me. I didn't need all of that grooming. As long as I had my friends I would be okay.

We pulled up to the house and the three of us got out. Aoko met us at the door with a smile. She had been taking care of the children while we had dinner since it ran past all of their bed times.

"Masters Taro and Riku went to sleep by themselves, Master Mattieu and Misses Kaori and Tamiko went to bed soon after with very little argument." she said.

"Thank you Aoko. You're dismissed for the night." I said.

"Of course ma'am. Pleasant dreams." she said and headed for her room.

"So are you nervous?" Noemi asked as she walked out of the bathroom, pulling her hair into a bun. I was sitting on the big bed in my old room while Haruhi arranged things for the next morning. As the most organized of the bunch of us other than Kyoya she took up the roll of making things go smoothly and keeping everyone on time.

I shook my head, "Not really. I mean I never thought that I'd ever get to marry Kyoya. But ask me again in the morning. I may be sick to my stomach then." I smiled.

"I'm sure you'll be fine Sora. You love Kyoya and he loves you." Haruhi said as she walked over and climbed into bed.

I smiled, "I know."

Noemi turned off the light and the three of us climbed into the big bed. I had expected that I would have trouble falling asleep but that night the moment my head hit the pillow I was out.

I woke the next morning to the sound of someone knocking on the door. Before I could even open my eyes Noemi was up and answering the door.

"Good morning Mistress Nishimura. I've brought a gift for Mistress Haninozuka. It arrived this morning." Aoko said holding a large white box.

"What is it?" I asked getting out of bed.

"I believe that this is Master Otori's gift. I apologize Ma'am but a few weeks ago he came to me and asked for my help. After I had completed the task he asked that I keep quiet about it until today." Aoko said.

"This must be what Hikaru and Kaoru were hinting at the other day when we had lunch. They said Kyoya had entrusted them with a special task but wouldn't say what." Haruhi said looking at the white box.

I took the box from Aoko and sat it down on the bed before carefully removing the lid. Pulling away the white tissue paper I saw what was underneath and my breath caught in my throat.

With shaking hands I pulled out the white dress that was inside. It had a sweetheart neckline and small rhinestones under the bust just before the skirt fanned out. It was the dress I'd tried on when I'd gone on vacation with the Host Club. The one I'd loved so much.

"Is that the dress from the week we spent at the villa?" Haruhi asked.

I nodded, "I can't believe this. Where did he get this? There is no way that store still had the dress!"

"Look! There's a note!" Noemi said and handed me a folded sheet of paper. I opened it and saw Kyoya's familiar handwriting and began to read it.

I'm sure you recognize the dress that comes with this note. Since the day I saw you in the original one in that tiny shop I haven't forgotten how beautiful you looked in it. That dress was perfect for you but this dress was made for you. Literally. I had the twins and their mother craft this special for you from memory. In keeping with tradition I have not yet set eyes on this dress but I look forward to seeing you in it.

"This is beautiful. It looks exactly like the other one." Haruhi said.

"I love it. C'mon lets get ready. The sooner I'm ready the sooner I can get dressed!" I smiled and hurried for the bathroom.

A few our hours later I stood with my back to the mirror with Haruhi and Noemi behind me. Both wore strapless baby blue dresses with a white band under the bust and skirts that reached the floor. Noemi held my curls up while Haruhi zipped me up. Only then was I permitted to turn around and see myself.

When I did I couldn't help but grin. The dress fit like a glove and every detail was perfect. I made a mental note to thank the twins later. My hair was pulled half up and held back with a pearl hairclip that Noemi had leant me. It had been in her family for ages and she had worn it when she married Isamu. Every woman who had worn it on her wedding day had a long and happy marriage.

"You're beautiful Sora." Noemi smiled softly from behind me.

"Kyoya is going to love you in this dress." Haruhi replied as she smoothed out a winkle in the skirt of my dress.

"Aoko? What do you think?" I asked looking at her.

I turned to see the maid crying silently with a soft smile on her face.

"You look beautiful Ma'am." she said thickly through her tears.

"Thank you but why are you crying?" I asked walking over to her.

"The romance you and Master Otori have had is like a romance novel! This is the wonderful fairy tail ending! It's so beautiful!" she said and broke out into fresh tears.

I smiled and walked over hugging her.

"I'm sorry I'm such a cry baby Ma'am. I just can't help it." she apologized.

"It's okay. Why don't you go make sure the children are ready? We can take care of everything up here." I said.

"Very well." she nodded and headed out of the room.

I was making sure that I had everything was packed to go for the Honeymoon when the doors to my room opened and the kids came running in. Taro, Mattieu and Riku were dressed in matching little black suits with patent leather shoes and baby blue ties. Kaori and Tamiko wore baby blue dresses with a bubble skirt and lace overlay, their hair held back by matching blue headbands and plain little paten leather ballet flats.

Taro came running up to me with a huge grin on his face. I didn't hesitate to scoop him up.

"Mama you're pretty." Taro smiled.

"Thank you baby boy." I smiled and kissed his cheek. He frowned and wiped the kiss away.

"Ew." he frowned.

I laughed and shook my head, "So are you ready for Mama and Kyoya's wedding? Are you going to do a good job of carrying the ring?"

"Yeah! I do good job!" Taro grinned.

"How about you Riku?" I asked.

"Uh-huh!" Riku smiled.

"Aunt Sora! What do you think of our dresses?!" Kaori asked.

"You and Tamiko look beautiful and Mattieu you look very handsome." I smiled at the little boy.

"Of course!" Mattieu replied and shot me a look that pure Tamaki.

"Mattieu stop showing off." Tamiko replied sounding very Haruhi like.

I saw Haruhi roll her eyes at me before she turned to the kids, "Alright everyone it looks like it's time to head to the wedding! Everyone downstairs!"

I looked at the clock and realized that it was time for us to head out. We all piled into the limo that was waiting for us. Normally I didn't like taking limos but today was an exception because it was so special. The kids got in first before Haruhi and Noemi helped me tuck my dress in behind me before getting in the other side.

We drove across town to the garden, the limo stopping just outside of a little building where I could make final touches and wait for the ceremony to start. I was touching up my makeup when Fuyumi came in.

"Oh you look gorgeous!" she gushed as she embraced me.

"Thank you." I grinned.

"I can't believe that in an hour you and my baby brother are going to be married! Are you nervous?" she asked.

I shook my head, "Not a bit."

Fuyumi smiled and shook her head, "Just like Kyo but I should've known. You two love each other so much. I'm sure you'll be happy for a long time."

"I hope so." I smiled.

Fuyumi nodded with warm smile before leaning in and kissing me one more time.

"Alright. I'll see you out there! Good luck!" she said and hurried out.

The door had no sooner shut than Isamu walked in, dressed in a larger version of the boys' suits. Since my parents still didn't approve of the fact that Honey and I had divorced it would be Isamu that would be giving me away today. The moment he saw me a misty expression crossed his face. Wordlessly he walked over and wrapped me in a hug. When I pulled back a few minutes later I saw tears pooling in the corners of his eyes.

"Aww…don't cry. If you do I might too." I said reaching up and wiping the tears from his eyes.

"Sorry…I just realized how grown up you are." he replied.

"I have a kid and you're just realizing I'm an adult?" I asked with a laugh.

"That's different. You still looked like my little sister. Now….in this dress and the hair and the makeup…you're gorgeous Sora." Isamu replied.

"Thank you big brother." I replied and kissed his cheek.

"You're welcome. Now I um….I have a little surprise for you. I don't know how you're going to react to it but well….it's already here." Isamu said.

"What are you talking about?" I asked.

Isamu sighed and held up a hand to tell me to wait a moment before walking out the door. A few moments later he returned and my heart nearly stopped. With him was none other than my mother.

"Mother?" I asked looking at her.

"Misora dear…you look beautiful." she smiled and for the first time in my life I heard her a little nervous.

"Why don't we leave you two alone for a while and let you talk? C'mon kids." Haruhi said and with some help from Noemi, shepherded the kids out of the room.

"Thank you but Mother….what are you doing here? You and Father both made it very clear that you didn't approve of this marriage." I said when the kids were gone.

Mother sighed and took a seat on a small couch that was in the room before patting the space beside her. Walking over I took the spot and joined her.

"I was never the one that disapproved of anything Sora. That was your Father. I know that I may have said my share and done my part but I promise you that. I may not have been happy about you and Mitsukuni getting a divorce but I'd rather you be happy then trapped in a marriage like the one your father and I have. We married young and because of our parent's wishes. We've never been in love. Not the way you and the Otori boy…Kyoya…are." she said.

"If you weren't happy why didn't you leave or stop the marriage?" I asked.

She sighed, "I didn't have the strength. I was afraid of what would happen. I knew my parents would disown me and then I would have nothing. I had lived in nothing but comfort my entire life. How would I have survived outside of it? Then I had Isamu and then you and Kasumi and I knew I would never be able to leave. I made sure you were sent as far away as I could so that you wouldn't have to see a relationship as toxic as the one your father and I have and kept myself distant. I regret doing that everyday. I didn't get to have a bond with you children and now look at where you sister is because of it."

I looked at my mother, "So why now? Why after everything that's happened are you just now coming around?" I asked.

"Because I realized just how bad the damage was. I saw myself alone for the first time in a long time. Isamu was gone and had children I had never seen. Your sister had lost her mind and was locked away. And then you had left as well and were about to get married. I wanted to be here for that. I missed Isamu's wedding because I let your father's prejudices silence me. I wasn't about to let that happen a second time. If you want me to leave then I will gladly leave and understand why but I would enjoy watching you get married for love." she said.

I sat quiet for a moment thinking things over. I had lived my life knowing my mother was distant and now here she was asking for another chance. Did I want her in my life? I had gone this far without her hadn't I? But she seemed honestly sorry for everything. Could I give her one more chance? Finally I had my decision.

"I would love for you to stay Mother." I smiled.

My mother broke out into a smile and hugged me. And for the first time in my life it was a real hug. Not a showy one but a real squeeze-you-tight-to-let-you-know-I-love-you hug. I hugged her back and felt tears prick my eyes. By the time we had pulled apart I was honestly crying.

"Oh sweetheart! You've ruined your makeup! Come here and I'll fix it for you." My mother said and stood up pulling me over towards the makeup table.

I sat down and my mother picked up my makeup, "Misora dear you really should use waterproof makeup on a day like this. Here…we'll use mine." she said and from her purse pulled out a tube of mascara and a eyeliner stick.

Carefully she wiped the smeared makeup from my eyes and applied new. When she stepped back I saw my eyes were as good as new.

"Thank you Mother." I smiled.

"You're welcome sweetheart." she said and a second later Noemi popped into the room.

"Sora it's time to walk!" she said.

"Oh! I'd better go and get a seat! I'll see you in a bit dear." she said and kissed my cheek before hurrying out, smiling at Noemi as she did.

Everyone lined up and got ready. The sakura trees were beautiful over head and the long white runner ran the length of the path between the rows. I was hidden a ways back so that Kyoya couldn't see me and suddenly I was glad of that. I was sure I was bright green as my nerves had finally caught up with me.

"Ready to do this little sister?" Isamu asked as Noemi started down the aisle leaving us with just Mattieu.

I shook my head, "No."

Isamu looked at me, "What's wrong?" he asked.

"I think I might be making a mistake. This is too easy. This whole day has been too perfect. Something is going to go wrong and thanks to my past history with things going wrong it's going to be very, very bad. Get me out of here Isamu." I said clutching my brother's arm as a wave of nausea over took me.

"Sora…just breathe." Isamu said turning towards me.

"I am breathing!" I snapped.

"Okay then listen to me. Nothing is going to go wrong today. Nothing. Okay?" he asked.

"How can you say that? Things always go wrong!" I replied.

Isamu sighed, "Well maybe in the past but I can guarantee you things won't today. You love Kyoya so much Sora and he loves you just as much. Today is your day and things are going to go right. I promise you."

"How can you promise that?" I asked.

"Have I ever lied to you?" he asked.

"Yes. When I was 7 and you told me that the tooth fairy was an evil fairy that came around and ripped teeth out of children's mouths while they were sleeping so all they could eat was old tapioca pudding." I replied glaring at him.

Isamu sighed, "Look I'm your big brother. It's my job to make sure things go right okay?"

I couldn't help but smile back, "Fine but if anything happens it's your fault."

"Deal." he smiled and kissed my forehead.

I opened my mouth to say something when I felt a tug at my dress. Looking down I saw Mattieu looking up at me with a flower in his hand. It was a plain white plum blossom that I couldn't see anywhere around.

"This is for you. Papa says that when a lady is feeling sad that you should give her a flower and tell her how beautiful she is. I think you look like a princess." he said and handed me the flower.

I smiled at the sparkling violet eyes that looked up at me. Shaking my head I accepted the flower and pecked his cheek.

"Thank you Mattieu." I smiled.

"Come here." Isamu said and tucked it into the clip at the back of my head.

"Thank you." I smiled.

"Welcome. Now let's get you married." Isamu said and with that we started down the aisle.

I was still a little nervous but when I saw Kyoya at the end waiting for me it all went away. All that mattered were his eyes on me. In no time we were at the end and Isamu put my hand in Kyoya's.

Everything went by in the blink of an eye. The words of the officiate were just a blur to me as I stood there with Kyoya. Before I knew it we were exchanging rings.

Kyoya smiled at me as he took my hand into his.

"Sora for the longest time now I have known that you are the one woman I wanted to share my life with. Your beauty, heart, and mind inspire me to be the best person I can be. You hold a place in my heart that no one could fill. We have made it through every trial that has been thrown at us. Now that we're standing here I promise to love you for eternity, respecting you, honoring you, being faithful to you, and sharing my life with you. Forever. This is my solemn vow." Kyoya said as he slipped the ring onto my finger.

"Kyoya you were my first love and my true love. You were my true love in good times and in bad, when our lives seemed easy and when they seemed hard, when we had everyone's support and no ones. Now after all of that we stand here today surrounded by our loved ones as you become my husband and I become your wife. I may not be your first just as you are not mine but I know that we will be each others last. You are mine and I am yours forever." I said and carefully put the ring onto his finger.

"With the power invested in me I now pronounce you Husband and Wife. You may kiss your bride." the officiate said and a moment later Kyoya pulled me forward, one hand on my lower back, the other cupping the side of my face.

The kiss was gentle and chaste and everything a first kiss as husband and wife should be. Everyone erupted in cheers and claps. A moment later when we broke away I turned and looked at all of the smiling faces.

My Mother sat in the front dabbing at her eyes with my brother beside her with a wide grin. Haruhi and Noemi were beaming as they clapped and the kids were all smiles. Behind Kyoya I could see Tamaki with a radiant smile, Mori smiling a slight but definitely happy smile, the twins were whistling and yelling as they clapped and Honey was jumping up and down as he clapped.

"For the first time I introduce to you Mr. and Mrs. Kyoya Otori!"

Everyone stood and clapped as Kyoya and I turned and began walking down the aisle. I held tight to Kyoya's hand, my body shaking with excitement. I couldn't believe that we had done this. I couldn't believe that it was real.

"Did that just happen?" I laughed as Kyoya and I stopped a short ways away from the ceremony space.

"I believe so. Officially Mrs. Otori, Mrs. Otori." he smiled and leaned down and gave me another kiss, this one much less innocent than the one that he'd give me at the alter. Where the other had been just lips this was full of heat and tongue.

Suddenly there was a wolf whistle and Kyoya and I broke apart.

"Get it Kyoya!" the twins yelled in unison as they walked over with the rest of the Host Club.

"Starting the Honeymoon a little early are we hmm?" Tamaki asked winking at Kyoya.

Haruhi rolled her eyes at Tamaki before coming over and hugging Kyoya and I.

"Congratulations you two." she smiled.

"Thank you Haruhi." Kyoya smiled.

"So how did you like your surprise this morning?" Kaoru asked looking at me.

"The dress? I loved it. You both did a wonderful job on it. Thank you." I smiled.

"We're glad that you're happy with it. We weren't sure when Kyoya came and asked us to make if we'd be able to but we're glad we could." Hikaru replied.

"Well I'm glad you did. Thank you both." I said and hugged them both.

"And thank you too. I loved the surprise." I smiled and kissed Kyoya.

"You look beautiful Sora-Chan! I'm so happy for you and Kyo-Chan!" Honey smiled and walked over and hugged me.

"Congratulations." Mori replied and patted my head.

A minute later the photographer came up and it was time to take the wedding photos.

We took ones with the entire wedding party, ones of just Kyoya and I, Kyoya and I each with our bridesmaids and groomsmen respectively and then with our family.

"Alright can I get the bride and the groom together? And Mrs. Otori don't you have son? How about him in there as well." the photographer said.

I nodded and picked up Taro and took my place but Kyoya stopped.

"Actually this isn't our whole family, Honey why don't you and Reiko join us?" Kyoya asked.

"Oh no! We couldn't do that!" Honey said.

"Kyoya's right Honey. You're always going to be a part of this family. You're Taro's father." I smiled.

"Okay if you're sure." Honey smiled and him and Reiko joined us.

Once the pictures were taken everyone headed to a separate part of the garden. It was a white rose garden with light blue paper lanterns lighting up the area. Everyone went in first and then Kyoya and I made our entrance when we were announced, going straight into our first dance.

Kyoya pulled me close, one hand resting on my lower back, the other hand clasping my free one, my second one resting on his shoulder. Soft music played from a small orchestral ensemble as we twirled slowly around the dance floor.

"I don't think I've been able to tell you how beautiful you look today." Kyoya whispered bringing his mouth close to my ear.

"Thank you. I have to say that you look quite handsome yourself. Of course I expect nothing less from my husband." I teased, trying out the word on my tongue. I liked it.

"Mhmm…well I expect nothing less but beauty from my wife." he said and I saw the smile curl on his face. He liked the term for me as I did the one for him.

The rest of the night Kyoya and I hardly left the others side. We shared kisses whenever the mood struck us and held hands. I couldn't be happier.

"Bye sweetheart. Be good for Daddy understand? Train hard." I said as I hugged Taro goodbye as Kyoya and I got ready to leave for our Honeymoon. I had already bid goodbye to my Mother, Brother, Sister-In-Law, Niece and Nephew and now we were saying goodbye to the Host Club.

"Okay." he nodded.

"I love you." I smiled and kissed him.

"I love you too Mommy." he said and gave me a kiss that was sticky from cake on my cheek.

I handed him over to Honey who gave me a similarly sticky kiss on my cheek along with a one armed hug.

"Have fun Sora-Chan!" he chirped.

"We will." I smiled and turned to the twins.

"Please don't teach my baby bad things while I'm away will you?" I asked.

"No promises." they chimed and gave me separate hugs before passing me off to Tamaki.

"Bon Voyage dear Sora." he said as he hugged me.

"Thank you Tamaki. And before you ask I will bring you back a souvenir." I smiled.

He smiled and hugged me again, "Thank you. And congratulations again. I can't think of anyone better for Kyoya than you. I don't think I've ever seen him as happy as he is today."

"Well he makes me just as happy. I'll take care of him Tamaki. I promise." I said.

"Good." he smiled and Haruhi walked over and hugged me.

"Have fun on your honeymoon. Don't worry I will watch out for Taro and make sure that Honey makes him eat something other than cake." Haruhi smiled.

"Thank you. I'll see you when we get back." I replied and headed to the car.

"Have fun you two! We love you both!" Tamaki called as he put his arm around Haruhi.

Kyoya and I climbed into the car and with a few final waves to the others we headed for the airport. I curled into Kyoya's side as he draped his arm over me.

"You're mine Mr. Otori. Forever and ever and ever." I smiled.

"As you are mine my dear." he said and pressed a kiss to my head.

We had been waiting years to get here and here we were at last. I was in his arms and everyone knew. We were married and were starting our lives together. I couldn't see anything but happiness on the horizon.
