 I looked at J.J. and smiled as we waited for everyone to go inside the tent while Mom and Ana made us wait where we couldn’t see inside.
“Thank you” I smiled reaching up and touching the side of his face

“What for?”
“Your vows to me”
“Said what I feel Baby” he bent his head and kissed me his fingers entwined with mine.
“Okay you two, time for you to make your entrance” Ana beamed as she and Mom hurried inside.
“Here we go” J.J. chuckled He took my hand as we heard our names announced and walked in to the tent that was now enclosed. The candles were all lit on the tables casting shadows over the room that was lit buy tiny twinkling lights that were strung across the roof ON the dance floor was a light projecting the Marine corps Emblem. J.J. walked me toward the dance floor, as Brody and Ari started to sing and play amazed for our first dance. Being held in his arms as he danced with me in his blues me in my gown made me feel like a princess, every one surrounded the dance floor watching, taking pictures and crying.
The song came to the end and J.J. stopped and rested his forehead against mine before kissing me. We walked over to the travel and sat down everyone was chatting and talking while we ate. I caught J.J. looking at me out of the corner of my eye.
“You look so beautiful the dress is amazing” he rested his hand on my leg.
“I need to thank you for my wedding present” I moved and pulled up the skirt on my dress so he could see where the ring was attached to the garter on my leg.
“I like where you put it” he grinned looking round before putting his hand on my thigh and kissing my neck.
“Okay we need to stop or this wedding will become XXX rated” I giggled he sat back
“So the gift you sent me I don’t get it a key in a box”
“Well it’s the key to your gift” I smiled “It’ll be waiting when we get home in the garage”
“What is it”
“Well that you’re going to have to wait and see” I winked. He groaned and Took a deep breath before he put his fingers in his mouth and got every ones attention with a whistle
“Guys I want to say a few things…” everyone stopped what they were doing and listened to him “B, do you remember the very first day we met? From the very moment I saw you, I knew damn that’s one tough assed chick, taken down by a freight train known as Flynn playing a crazy game called Lejeune ball” J.J. sighed. “You did something to me that night that made me want more”
“Yeah we know we’ve heard” Flynn groaned I reached over and Gibbs slapped him.
“So I tried to get to know you and I made you cry the first time I took you home because you saw my ID and it made you miss your Dad and Uncle” Dad looked at Logan and smiled “We’ve not had the easiest time since we got together but we’ve made it through and I think we’re stronger than I ever imagined possible. Thank you for chasing my ass to Paris and proposing to me I love you” he bent and kissed me before standing straight “I’d like to raise a toast to my wife… Semper Fi” he winked at me as a chorus of Ooh Rah’s came back. J.J. sat down as Flynn got up grinning.
“Oh god I need Kleenex” Mom sniffed making us all laugh.
“Okay My turn… and I have to step it up following that… But J.J. I love you like a brother and to be honest I wish you were because I wouldn’t have had to deal with growing up with her” he pointed to me J.J. high fived him “But seriously you’re my brother on the battle field and now at home if she gives you crap let me know I know some real good stories that would shut her up”
“I’ll remember that” J.J. chuckled.
“Right You’re all going to see a Marine cry in a minute” I watch as he swallowed hard “For those who don’t know the bride is my baby sister”
“By two Minutes” Dad called out
“Okay she’s my baby twin sister; most kids fight and at some point hate their siblings”
“I’ll vouch for that” Brody laughed
“Well yes we fought but I always knew where to find my best friend, we share everything and have since before we were born. I’m happy that we’ve both found people who don’t think we’re crazy when I’m doubled up every month with periods pains suffering because you are and you don’t kill people who constantly ask you if I’m okay when I’m away… I know you always have my back even when I’m wrong and I’ll have yours whenever you need it and sometimes when you say you don’t, but you really do” I smiled at him “ B I love you. You are my best friend” he looked at Riley “you know what I mean”
“Yes honey I’ve been round the two of you since we were all tiny” she chuckled.
“Now I know this is a little strange but hey we’re a strange family” J.J. got up from next to me and walked over to the dance floor as Brody brought out two stools and a guitar for each of them. “You’ll get your Dance with Dad in a while and you’ve already had your dance with J.J. so…” he offered me his hand “Time to dance with your brother and your Husband helped me out a little finding the song”
“You’ll tread on my feet” I laughed taking his hand.
“No he won’t B he took lessons before we got married” Riley laughed. J.J and Brody both started to play and J.J started to sing. Flynn took my right hand in his and his left hand rested on the small of my back and we started moving round the floor. Mom and Ana and the rest of the women already in tears as they had been when it was me dancing with J.J.
When I think back on these times
And the dreams we left behind
I’ll be glad ‘cause I was blessed to get to have you in my life
When I look back on these days
I look and see your face
You were right there for me.
In my dreams I’ll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart there’ll always be a place for you in my life
I’ll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
You know you showed me how it feels
To feel the sky with in my reach
And I always will remember all the strength you gave me
Your love made me make it through
Oh, I owe so much to you
You were right there for me
In my dreams I’ll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart there’ll always be a place for you in my life
I’ll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
‘Cause I always saw in you my light my strength
And I want to thank you now for all the ways
You were right there for me, you were right there for me always
In my dreams I’ll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart there’ll always be a place for you in my life
I’ll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be
There you’ll be.
I couldn’t help the tears that were streaming down my face as the song ended and Flynn hugged me to him.
