***Okay so i have to say this story took a complete 180 from
where i planned to take it. But for now this is where it ends,
open to come back to and add to and you know i will ;P***
…………… "Well I think we're going to be busy" Chad smiled as he
lead me back to the table and we sat back down. "Planning a
wedding while touring and getting out the album for you guys"
"You really want a huge Hollywood wedding?"
"Don't you I thought that was every little girl's dream of a huge
"I was a long time ago to much has happened. I've lost to much
and too many people to care about making other people happy for a
day" I picked up the glass and took a drink as Chad poured the
champagne. "My Life if nothing else is one hell of a roller
"I'll give you that" he laughed "So what is your idea of a
"Just the two of us no one else, yes people are going to be
pissed like your band and mine but they'll get over it" I sighed
"We can celebrate when we get home we can throw a huge party but
right now it feels like no one can touch us no one can judge us"
Chad got up "Where are you going?"
"I'll be back in a minute" he kissed me "You amaze me you know
that" he walked away. I looked down at the ring and tried to take
in the fact I was wearing an engagement ring. Chad made me feel
safe and protected and loved without much effort, he knew
everything that had happened to me and he still loved me. "Okay"
I jumped as he walked back over "you want to marry me here
tonight?" I nodded "Good I called the house manager and he's
bringing over someone to marry us" he was grinning like a cat
that had got the cream. "People are going to kill us"
"Lukas knew I was going to ask you because I had to have him keep
the ring" he chuckled "Wait till we get to Australia and they all
find out you're Mrs. Kroeger" I looked at him "Wow that sounded
like I was talking to my Mom" he laughed
"Oh gee thanks" the door opened and the house manager hurried in
with a guy.
"You ready to wing it" Chad grinned
"Yeah" I took a deep breath
"This is my brother" the house manager grinned "he the local
justice he can marry you"
"That's perfect" Chad nodded the house manager turned us to face
each other and his brother draped what looked like an intricately
embroidered piece of silk over our hands. Before he placed his
hand over the top
"Tonight we stand under the stars before Heaven and earth, for
you to commit to each other" the expression on Chad's face
and mine must have been classic the Justice spoke with a flawless
English accent. The house manager saw the look and lent in
"He go to University in Cambridge"
"Okay that explains that" I smiled, I felt Chad squeeze my hands
"Do you both agree to love each other and support each other
in mind body and spirit"
"We do" both of us nodded
"What do you vow to this woman?" he looked at Chad as he
reached under to take the bottom of the silk in his hand. Chad
took a deep breath
"Good job I can think of words to say" he chuckled "I promise to
be there when you need me, to fill your days with sunshine, to
comfort you and encourage you, to help you reach your goals, to
be there and to love you with all my life with all my heart." I
could feel the tears brimming as he smiled at me the justice
wraping the slik over the top
"And what can you vow to this man?" he asked looking at me
and taking the other end of the silk and pulling it up and
holding it. I took a breath and thought of Love song and what it
meant and everything Chad had done for me since meeting him
"Okay…" I opened my eyes "I used to be afraid of falling in love,
of giving my heart away. How could I trust a man to love me, to
give to me all that I wanted to give to him?. Chad, when I met
you, I realized how I could share my pain, and you helped ease
it. You have re written my love song" He smiled at me "All I can
offer is what you see right here and all the love in my heart"
"It's all I need" he whispered as the Justice wrapped the other
end of the silk over our hands
"Under the stars, before heaven and earth, the silk that binds
you together as man and wife tonight is to symbolize that
together you are strong and apart the silk will keep you within
reach. Under the laws if Indonesia and the Island law of Bali I'm
happy to call you man and wife" He bowed deeply to the two of
us "this is where you can kiss her" he grinned at Chad.
Chad pulled me to him and kissed me. Everything happens for a
reason right? All the bad stuff that happens has to turn around
and I think I just got to my full turn round point. The past is
the past and yes I know some will always haunt me and come back
to me but the here and now was perfect and the future… Well the
future is yet to be written……………..
