Chapter 21: Charlie's Wedding pt.2
Charlie came closer to the podium, where she kissed her father’s cheek. I extended my arm to grab her hand, which she forcefully did. I let go of her hand as she stands up omg the podium.
The priest lowers his hand’s downs s everyone in the chapel will sit down. As they all sit down, the ceremony began:
“We are gathered here to unite these two people in marriage. Their decision to marry has not been entered into lightly, and today they publicly declare their private devotion to each other.” The priest said, looking at everyone in the chapel, using his hands.
“Do you both pledge to share your lives openly with one another, and to speak the truth in love? Do you promise to honor and tenderly care for one another, cherish and encourage each other, stand together, through sorrows and joys, hardship and triumphs for all the days of your lives?” The priest asked us. I looked over at Charlie and saw her nod.
“We do,” I said with a smirk on my face. I look over at Charlie, and I could tell she wasn’t happy where she stands. I sighed and looked back at the priest.
“May these rings be blessed as a symbol of your union. As often as either of you look upon these rings, may you not only be reminded of this moment but also of the vows you made and the strength of your commitment to each other.” The priest gestured the maiden, with was getting up from her seat, and held the pillow with the rings.
“Edgerlord, please repeat after me...I Edgerlord promise to love and support you, Charlie, and live each day with kindness, understanding, truth, humor, and passion. With this ring, I thee wed.” The priest tells me to say.
I repeat exactly what the priest said as I place the ring on Charlie’s finger. She sighs and forcefully makes an effort to smile at me. I kissed her hand, and she gasped from the sudden action I made. As I came back up, I winked at her, making her think.
“Charlie, please repeat after me... I, Charlie, promise to love and support Edgerlord?..and live each day with kindness, understanding, truth, humor, and passion. With this ring, I thee wed.” The priest said, where Charlie repeated the same statement and placed the ring on my finger. She closed her eyes and breathed out a sigh.
“Go now in peace and live in life, sharing the most precious gift you have- the giddy of your lives untrusted. And may your days belong in hell—”
“Before you pronounce us husband and wife, I would like to say a few words to my skin to be wife. May I?” I asked the priest who gladly accepted. I looked into Charlie’s eyes and grabbed her hands. She looked at me with an unpleasant smile, but for the sake of the wedding, she forced a smile on her face.
“Ever since I met you, you have completely changed my life. The dates we had, the arguments we had, that night we had..meant a lot to me. Charlie, I love you, dearly, and I wanted to tell you his before we got married. My darling, I have decided to be with you in sickness and in health. Allow me to let me take care of you. Will you accept me? As your husband and as your best friend?” I say to Charlie, which made her realize what was happening. She smiled and got closer to my ear.
“Alastor?” She whispered at me. She backed away, and I nodded. She gasped and started to tear up.
“You may now proceed priest; I’m finished” I turn and look a the priest. She smiled and continued. I held Charlie’s hands and looked behind her to see Vaggie confused and Dust with two thumbs up.
“I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride.” The priest said to us. We looked at each other, and I placed my hand on her cheek. She put her head into my mine, and I pull her into a kiss. I held my back with my free hand, and she moved her hands around my neck.
Everyone stood up as their hands made noise. The chapel was surrounded by clapping hands wit enjoyment inside them. We part away, and we both smile. She gets closer to my ear and whispers:
“I can’t believe you did this!” She días with a cracking voice from the tears. I smiled at her and kissed her cheek.
“I couldn’t let you get married to someone you didn’t want to~” I smirked at her as she giggled. I carried her Bridal style with laughter in my ears.
We walk out of the chapel with a considerable amount of people cheering us on. We hope in the car, and I told her to drive instead of me. She had a confused look on her face but agreed to anyway.
As we hopped in the car, Lucifer and Lilith came to the vehicle and asked for Charlie to roll down the window.
“I’m so glad you’re finally married! I never saw the day to come, but here we are!” Lucifer said behind his Laughter. Charlie just growled and rolled her eyes.
“The signing will be addressed to you later in the day. Have a nice honeymoon, you two~” Lilith said before we left. She was driving down the road when I started to feel nauseous.
“Why can’t you drive?” She asked me, I turned around, and the only thing I could see was blurry items around me.
“The transformation...it’s my first time trying it out a-and..well, there’re some s-side effects—” I said before letting my body take over. My head bashed against the window, and my hands are turning into my regular hands.
The transformation started to kick off, making me turn into my natural self. I felt my arms ache, my head hurt, my hands clenched, and my eyes bleed. Charlie had a worried face but continued to drive to our house.
I opened my mouth and spouted our blood. Charlie stepped on the breaks, making me fly out of the windshield. She hopped out of the car and rushed over to me. I rolled over, and my face was back to normal. She began to cry as she held my hands. I widened my eyes and got up in an instant.
I grabbed her hands and pulled her up int a hug.
“Don’t worry, sweat heart, daddy’s alright~” I used a seductive voice, making her start to punch me playfully. I hug her tight and twirl her around in mid-air. She started yelling in laughter until I placed her in the car seat. I drive away, and the whole ride to the house, I was holding her hand.
Arriving at the house, I noticed Dust and Vaggie at the front door waiting for us. As we pull up in front of them, Vaggie widens her eyes as she saw me driving the car; meanwhile, Dust couldn’t wait to hug me and say: fuck man, you did it!.
I parked the car and got out first to open Charlie’s door. As soon as I opened Charlie’s door, I felt the right set of arms and legs around me. I chuckled and tapped in his hand to get off, he did.
“You did it! Man, I’m so fucking proud of you!” Dust told me, hugging me once more. I hugged him back and again, tapped on his back so he could back off.
Vaggie approached us and tapped her bottom foot to think about the situation. Charlie rolled her eyes playfully before her jumping on Vaggie a hugging her tightly. Vaggie hugged her back, still in confusion.
“What the hell is happening here? Where Edgerlord? Why is strawberry pimp here? I’m so confused. Hijo de perra dime porque carajos estas aquí!” Se yelled at me with one of her fingers on my chest. She pushed me down on the hood of the car and gave me a death glare.
“Hey, slut! Get over here!” Dust yelled at Vaggie, but she ignored him. Dust growled and walked up to us.
“Sweaty, let go of Al. You don’t want to hurt him, right?” He asked her, placing his hands on her shoulders as he backed her away from me. I got up and brushed off any dust on my tux. Charlie rushed towards me and kissed my cheek; meanwhile, I hugged her side.
“Vaggie, dear, I transformed into Edgerlord to marry Charlie. Edgerlord is back at the chapel unconscious, and my minion is taking care of him...” I say with a devilish laugh. Vaggie widened her eyes and smacked me across the face and grabbed my collar.
“If you hurt her, I will murder you in your sleep. Y lo cumplo...perra.” She told me as she let go of my collar. As she did so, my bow tie unhooked off my tux and fell to the ground, making me grab it and wipe off the dirt.
“Dust, do you have any idea what she told me? You know her better then I do!” I asked Dust. He shook his head at me, telling me he didn’t know. I sighed and grabbed Charlie’s hand.
“Hey, how about we play some poker. Drinks on the house!” I exclaimed. They all smirked and nodded, yes. Dust and Veggie headed inside the house, and Charlie was about to as well when I picked her up bridal style and walked inside. She giggled and gave me a quick kiss on the lips.
“Alright bitches, place your mother fucking bets! Because I’m about to beat your mother fucking asses and eat them for breakfast!” Dust yelled at the top of his lungs. We all laughed and sat at the round table.
I grabbed two decks of cards and some wine from the kitchen. We started to place our bets and started to drink.
This...is my new family. Fuck my old family.
This is where I belong.
