"The view of the sunset always looked beautiful from the Island", Kairi whispered as she sunk deeper against Sora's shirt. "Right, Sora?"
"Yeah", Sora agreed as he wrapped his arms around Kairi's waist. "It's really amazing how the sun always stay like that."
"I hope it stayed like that", Kairi said as she snuggled closer to Sora. "It was a good idea of yours, having our Graduation Picnic here."
Just a few days ago, they have Graduated from Sea Lion High School with their other friends. Sora and Kairi were both 19 years old when they graduated. A platform was built just outside their School and the entire class stood for their graduation photo. After speeches by the Headmaster and the Class President, the students cheered as they tossed their Modem into the air as the song 'Graduation Song by Vitamin C' played. Proud parents cried and hugged their children.
Following the Graduation Ceremony was the Graduation dinner and the prom. Sora and Kairi were at full swing as they led the dance and almost took the whole dance-floor. They danced until midnight when everybody tiredly walked back home.
"Thanks", Sora grinned at her. "I find it difficult that we're on our own."
"As long as we're together", Kairi said, trying to sound positive. "Life will be easy for the both of us."
"But now we're adults", Sora pointed out. "Sooner or later, we have to get separated."
Kairi was silent when he said that and gripped his hand tighter, unwilling to let him go. They let the silence continue to grow until Sora finally said.
"Oh well", Sora said as he gently turned Kairi around to face him. "I don't want to make you more miserable so..."
Kairi raised her eyebrow in question but did not answer. Sora dug into his pocket and took out a small box. He gently pulled open the box and Kairi gasped at its' content. It was a golden ring with a diamond-shape heart.
"I bought this from a traveling Moogle merchant", Sora explained. "I thought that if we're to be together, I thought this was a good way."
"Sora", Kairi said, not daring to say. "You mean..."
"Kairi, will you marry me?"
Kairi's eyes widen. Then she took the ring from the box and slid it through her finger. Tears of joy welled in her eyes. "Sora, yes!"
She hugged Sora tightly and kissed him.
King Mickey's Castle was gayly decorated with ribbons and banners. Counterfeit floated downwards like snow. The Royal Garden was cleaned and trimmed and the Castle have been cleaned by the Magical Broomsticks. Every armor was spotless and the Throne Room was shining. This was where the Wedding Ceremony was being held.
Crowds of people sat on cushioned chairs on both sides of the Throne Room. The crowd not only consisted of the Bride's and the grooms parents but also their friends from High School and from the other Worlds. Goofy, Captain of the Royal Guards, was being the usher while Donald Duck, the Court Magician, was waving his wand casting his 'Fantasia' spell. Colorful flames appeared out of the blues.
King Mickey was standing in front of his throne with a movable pedestal in front of him, with the Book of Ceremony resting on it. On his left was his Queen, Queen Minnie and Donald's girlfriend, Daisy. On his right was his mentor, Yensid, and Merlin.
Sora was standing besides with his best man, Riku. Both of them were wearing black suits; white long-sleeve shirt underneath a black tail-coat and black trousers. In additions was a black bow tie and expensive white gloves. Sora had his hair trimmed; after being nagged by his mother and Kairi. His hair was less spiky than usual. Riku on the other hand cut his hair until shoulder length.
Riku grinned when he noticed that Sora was acting either nervous or excited; he couldn't tell.
"Your dreams have come true", he whispered. "So why are you shaking?"
Sora smiled at his best friend. "For two reasons. One, I'm so excited of being together with Kairi forever. Two, why are they taking so long?"
Riku shrugged. "I don't know. You know, they have to make your wife beautiful and... there they are!"
Sora turned towards the entrance and his jaws dropped and his eyes widen. When Kairi stepped into the Throne Room, everyone present fell silent and admired her beauty. She wore a pearl-white wedding gown with milk-colored gloves. She wore a transparent glass slippers and her hands was a bouquet of red roses. On her head was a diamond diadem decorated with emeralds and rubies. She was like a Goddess of Beauty! Even the title 'Princess of Heart' pale in comparison than her. When she saw Sora, she beamed at him.
Behind her were Selphie and Aerith, her bridesmaids. Selphie wore a yellow-color gown and Aerith wore a red-color gown. They were following Kairi slowly as the Moogle organist and the Moogle choir sang the Wedding Song. When Kairi and her bridesmaids finally reached the pedestal, the music stopped and everybody sat down and remained silent. The only sounds that can be heard were Sora's mother and Kairi's grandmother crying tearfully, the soft explosion of Donald's 'Fantasia' spell and the beating of the hearts of Sora and Kairi.
King Mickey cleared his throat before saying, "Good Afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, friends and special guests! We're here today to unite two people for eternal; Sora and Kairi! These two are brave, responsible and heroic in their own way! I've to say that they make a perfect couple! If there are any objections, please voiced it now!"
There was silence.
"Well then", Mickey continued. "We shall proceed with the ceremony vows! Sora, Kairi, please step closer to the pedestal!"
They did as Mickey said.
"Sora", Mickey said "Do you vow that you will stay loyal to your wife like any other loyal husband and never cheat on her?"
"Do you vow to respect her and provide her support when she needs it?"
"Do you vow to be a loving father when she bear children and not mistreat them?"
"By the light, I do!"
"Kairi", Mickey now speak to Kairi. "Do you vow that you will stay loyal like any other loyal wife and never cheat on him?"
"Do you vow to respect him and provide him with support when he needs it?"
"Do you vow to be a loving mother when you bear children and never mistreat them?"
"By the Light, I do!"
Mickey nodded, satisfied. "Then this lead to the final phrase of the ceremony; do you, Sora, take this woman to be your loving wife?"
"I do", Sora said.
"Do you, Kairi, "take this man to be your loving husband?"
"I do", Kairi breath.
Mickey's smile grew wider. "Present your rings!"
Riku handed Sora the ring and Selphie gave it hers to Kairi. Holding her wrist gently, Sora slid the ring through one of Kairi's fingers. Kairi did the same.
"Then I'm happy to announce you; man and wife!" Mickey declared. "You may kiss the bride!"
Sora kissed Kairi deeply as the crowd erupted with cheers and applause. To his surprise, Kairi swept Sora of his feat until his head was 5 centimeters away from the floor and kissed him. That brought a louder response from the crowd. Kairi and Sora broke their kiss and smiled at each other.
"Now we're forever together", Kairi said, tears of joy welling in her eyes.
"Yes", Sora agreed. "Forever."
"Sora", Kairi said hugging her new husband. "How very thoughtful of you!"
Sora grinned. "As always."
Sora and Kairi decided to spend their first night together in Traverse Town in a 5-star hotel. They drove onto Sora's gummi ship after the Wedding Feast. It was fantastic! They were served the most delicious food and Sora and Kairi danced like they did during their school prom. Kairi's bouquet of roses ended up in the hands of Yuffie.
Leon and Cid had already booked an expensive room for the newly-weds at one of the most popular hotels. The room was made out of marble and gold. The curtains were made out of golden silk and the bed's satin was not only gold in color but its' materials were also gold. The room's carpet was red and gold mingled together. It was indeed a room fit for a king.
Now Sora and Kairi were sharing a bottle of wine between the both of them on the bed.
"Cheers", Sora and Kairi said together clinking their glasses.
"I never taught I'll be drinking wine with you", Kairi said as she sipped her wine.
Sora finished his drink in one gulp. "Yeah." He placed the glass down. "I feel a bit dizzy."
"You drank that wine too fast", Kairi said as she finished hers. "You're drunk."
"You're sexy", Sora grinned at her, taking her into his arms.
Kairi laughed and swatted him gently. "Sora, you're outrageous!" But she allowed Sora to gently tear away her Wedding Gown and she also unbuttoned Sora's suit. Sora kissed Kairi as she pulled the duvet over them. Naked, sweaty and a bit tipsy, they rolled all over the bed; their lips locked together and their bodies glued to each other.
Finally exhausted, their sunk heavily into the pillow facing towards each other; smiling.
"I love you", Kairi whispered.
"I love you too", Sora smiled.
