This is my own ending to somewhere around the corner. It was for a project at school. I did like the real one, but i personally wished it ended something like this...

Somewhere Around the Corner- 8 years later…..
"Jim O'Reiley, do you take Barbara-"
Barbara shifted over towards the priest, and whispered something quietly into his wrinkly ear. Reverend Dempsey turned back, cleared his throat and started again.
"Oh, okay. Do you take Bubba to be your lawfully wedded wife?" Reverend Dempsey asked, looking at Jim.
"I do" said Jim, his green eyes fixed on Barbara's sparkling blue ones.
"And do you, Bubba take Jim O'Reiley to be your lawfully wedded husband?"
"I do" replied Barbara, longing for the next part of the Reverend's speech.
"And now Jim, you may kiss the bride."
Jim stepped forward, placed one of his calloused hands to the back of Barbara's stunning white dress, and gripped the other behind her long chestnut hair. He moved Barbara's lipstick coated lips to his, and kissed her like he never had before.
The O'Reileys and guests clapped and clapped until their hands turned red. Barbara could hear Thellie jumping about in her yellow, flowing gown and Elaine in her red, checked frock, hooting loudly at Jim. Joey was trying his best to applaud, while fiercely coughing after his fight for survival against polio. Ma had big, salty tears running down her thin face and Dad was wearing his large, jolly smile. Sergeant Ryan had his muscular arm around Dulcie's shoulder, her eyes reflecting her new found happiness. Behind Barbara's family were friends from Poverty Gully, and even people like Old Nicholson who were finally grinning.
Jim and Barbara turned around, and walked happily down the centre aisle, being pulled to a stop by guests trying to hug and kiss them from their seats. As they finally released themselves from the people's grasp, Barbara found herself in front of a shiny, glossed black carriage, with two white horses at the front. A plump little man wearing a tux and a spotty bow tie was sitting at the top holding the orange, leather reins and a dangerous whip. Barbara's face lit up like a sparkler as she let her happy, held back tears run down her face. She was married to her one true love, her savior and her friend.
Jim lifted Barbara off the ground, opened the wooden door and placed his new wife inside. He quickly waved goodbye to the emotional faces behind him, and got into the carriage himself.
"Giddyup, Giddyup!"cried the controller, cracking his whip.
The horses quickly moved their polished hooves, and began to trot away. Barbara opened the window at her side of the cart, and stuck her head outside. She could see everybody waving and smiling, laughing and crying all at the same time. As her family slowly started to become little dots far away from her, Barbara knew that she wouldn't, and that she couldn't ever forget this day.
