Thanks AislinnMature

Courtney

I could feel a duvet, wrapped around me and when I opened my eyes to find myself in a small chamber in Alexandria's castle. I sat up blearily and rubbed my eyes, how had a got here? I didn't remeber walking all the way home.

The door banged open and Alexandria hurried in, she looked so relieved when she saw me, I looked up at her sheepishly - it hadn't been the first time I had disapeared and not said anything.

"Courtney, thank goodness your alright" she sat on the edge of my bed, "I was so sorry to hear about Bartholemew, a messenger came and told us, but you were found halfway between here and your home, what were you thinking?

I desolved into tear as I spoke, "I didn't want my last memories of my friend to be at his funeral." Alexandria, pulled me into a tight hug and i managed to stifle my sobs. "I can't believe we are getting married tonight"

"Me neither."

"Everything seems to have gone so fast Alexandria."

"Yes, and yet I think there is still more to come."

"Yes."

Evening seemed to take forever to arrive and I was thrilled when Alexandria, Aislinn and I made are way to Alexandria's room to get ready.

My dress was perfect, Intricate flowered pattern work decorated the bodice of the dress. I stared at myself in the mirror, mesmorised at how incredable the dress made me look. Aislinn had taken the pleasure in putting my hair up, twisting it this way and that and placing so many bobby pins in it that I lost count.

I hugged her tight and thanked her for being so incredable then smiled before saying; "We have a surprise for you too!"

"Really?" I said a look of bewilderment on her face.

"Oh yes" Alexandria agreed "You and Lucas didn't get a proper wedding so both Courtney and myself have taken the liberty of arranging a blessing for you both after our weddings."

A single tear splashed onto Aislinn's cheek, "Really?"

"If you look in that wardrobe" I pointed over at the wardrobe, "You will find your wedding dress." She walked slowly over to the wardrobe and opened it. A squeel of delight could be heard as she pulled her wedding dress out of the wardrobe.

Trumpets could be heard from outside, and I turned to Alexandria,  "You ready?"

she nodded and we linked arms and made our way towards the ceremony, both beaming.

The End
