"You ready Zo?" I smile and take the bouquet of red and white roses. "Dad, I've been ready since the day I met Dominic." The curtain parts and I take a step down the gazebo steps. I look up and see the five rows of benches on either side of the white carpet isle. My friends and family and some people I don't recognize fill the seats. I look ahead in front of my Sensei is Dominic in a white suit and a red bow tie. His eyes meet mine and the largest smile I have ever seen is spread across his face. 

Every step I take my heart is beating rapidly in my chest. We meet and dad kisses my temple and hands me off to Dominic. "If you hurt her I swear to god, Destined or not, I will kill you." Dominic's smile doesn’t waver.  

"I would die before I do that." Dad takes his seat beside my mom and I take Dominic's hand and stand in front of him.  

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered her today to unite these two souls in marriage. Binding them to each other forever." My Sensei says to the crowd. "Now, Dominic repeat after me."  

"I, Dominic Reeds, take thee Zoey Lewis, to be my lofty wedded wife to hold and cherish, through good times and bad, through sickness and health until death do us part." Dominic repeats what Sensei John said.  

"Now, Zoey, repeat after me... I, Zoey Lewis, take thee Dominic Reeds, to be my lofty wedded husband to hold and cherish, through good times and bad, through sickness and health until death do us part."  

"Okay, now do you have your own vows?" I nod. "Very well, Dominic go ahead." Dominic takes my hands. 

"Zoey the last few months have been chaotic and dangerous and terrifying and horrible. But it has also been amazing, magical, romantic, and the best time in my life. Before you I was just surviving, sleeping in back alleys and eating at school. When I met you, I knew my life had finally started, with you, I'm not just alive, I'm living. You make me who I am and that is a better person. We fell in love and went through hell and fought for everything we are, and now we are finally here. You have no idea what you mean to me, there are no words to describe it but maybe I can show you every day for the rest of our life together. I will show you what you do for me and make me. Thank you for loving me, for seeing the beauty in me even though I didn't, for bringing me to life and giving me something I didn't know I was missing, my soul. Today isn't our happily ever after, it's just the beginning of the next chapter in our story." Dominic takes the ring in his hand and slides it on my finger.  

"With this ring I bind myself to you in marriage and soul." Sensei John smiles fighting tears. "Okay Zoey." 

"Love, treasure, destiny, perfection, beauty, kind, romantic, eternal, pure. These are the things that come to mind when I think of you. When you touched me that night we met and I wasn’t bombarded by some god-awful vision, I didn't realize how much I missed human touch. I knew in that moment; my world would be different forever. You aren't just in my future, you are my future. I feel like I've known you forever and the more time I spend with you, the more you shine. My Dominic, My Destined, filled with love and beauty and kindness and purity and strength. I don't need to marry you to bind myself to you, because the moment we met I had already given you my heart. You complete me, I can feel it and we have had to fight for our love, to keep our sanity and to be together. And I would do it all over again, if it meant we would end up here. I look forward to starting a life with you. With this ring I bind my soul and life to you in marriage and become yours in every way possible." Sensei John chokes as I slide the ring on Dominic's hand.  

"If anyone has a reason why these two should not be wed then shut the hell up because it won't matter they are getting married today." Everyone in the crowd laughs. "With the power vested in me by god and the internet, I hereby pronounce you man and wife. You may now kiss the bride." Dominic pulls me into a deep long passionate kiss and I hear his thoughts.  

"My Blessed." I open my mind to him. "My Destined." I send him and we kiss like there is no one watching us until my head buzzes. After we part everyone claps. 

"Zoey wake up." My eyes snap open and I see Dominic at the door in his boxers. "Someone is in the house." I focus my senses and hear two heartbeats. Two familiar heartbeats.
