Justin sighed and took a drink of scotch.
“I am worried she will think I am only doing it because I [i have] to. That it will be for all the wrong reasons.” He explained and took another drink to calm himself a little. “If she thinks I am doing this for the wrong reasons then she would never agree. And I do not think I could handle a rejection from Willow.” He confessed and watched Jobe. He knew he had gone through similar with Anastasia over the years.
“I just... want her to be happy.” He said finally and ran a hand through his hair. He really did just want her to be happy at the end of all of this, but he so hoped it would be with him after everything.
“I’m sorry to be landing this on you on your wedding day.” He laughed a little, his timing was very poor.
“I... haven’t thought about it. He’s still injured and I don’t want to push him, of course.” She was nervous.
“It seems like we dreamt about it for the longest time but- Is it foolish for me to be frightened?” She said and looked to Willow.
“I know he would never harm me and would never push me. I suppose either way I will be glad to wake up in the same bed as him.” She laughed a little. It seemed silly to be so nervous.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow smiled and shook her head. [b “I have to agree with you there. Then, I have never really liked big crowds. I don’t mind them in my lecture theatre but having to socialise…”] She shook her head and feigned a shudder, [b “…I’d rather not.”] Willow smiled and followed him towards the happy couple, glad that they would finally get some time with them. They had purposely kept their distance, so they could enjoy their day but now they would finally get the chance to enjoy their company.
She lowered herself in the chair next to Anastasia and took hold of her hand and smiling when she said that she felt amazing. She shrugged her shoulders and shook her head when she watched the two men walk off. Perhaps he just had enough of female company for now and wanted to surround himself with testosterone. [b “You don’t need to thank me. I’ve been more than happy to do it and I just hope that you have had the special day that you deserve.”]
Willow watched as the woman gave a bottle of wine to the butler and she smiled. She had such a kind heart, it was really no wonder that Jobe had fallen in love with her. Willow nodded, [b “It’s been wonderful. Neither of us have been to a wedding before, never mind a wedding from this time.”] She smiled and looked around the empty room. [b “How do you feel…about sharing your bed with Jobe tonight?”] She wasn’t sure if women talked about such things in this time but she if Anastasia did not want to talk about it she could easily brush off the conversation.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Jobe accepted her kiss willingly, glad to know that he could now steal kisses from her whenever he wished, and this would now be his life. He smiled up at Justin and Willow. [b “There you are. We have not seen much from you today. I have to agree with my dear wife here…it certainly feels amazing.”] He said as he squeezed the hand that Willow kept free. Jobe looked up at Justin a nodded, taking a hint in his voice that suggested he needed to talk to him.
[b “We won’t be long my love.”] He said as he pressed a kiss to her forehead. When they arrived in the study he pulled out two glasses and poured the scotch. He barely had time to finish pouring them before Justin gave up the reason he had asked him in here in the first place. He turned to face him with a raised eyebrow and handed his glass over to him. He listened to the rest of his explanation and took a sip from his scotch.
[b “And what is stopping you?”]
Justin smiled to her and kissed her forehead softly,
“I have to admit, I don’t like having a lot of crowds around.” He said to her, he couldn’t show any affection. Jobe and Anastasia understood of course and allowed it but even holding Willow’s hand sometimes would be against the norm in this era until he was her husband. He smiled to Anastasia and Jobe,
“We should go check in on the newly weds.” He said and kissed her cheek as he went over.
“Well, Mr and Mrs Hughes!” He greeted and smiled to them.
“How does it feel?” He asked them as he sat with them and watched them both. It had been such a busy day but it was worth it to see them both so happy. He looked to Anastasia and Willow as they chatted amongst themselves,
“Perhaps a celebratory scotch? In the study?” He hinted and gestures as he lead Jobe through.
“I need to marry Willow.” He said rather abruptly. He looked to Jobe and laughed a little.
“I uh... I want what you and Anastasia have, but with Willow and not because society tells us it’s what we have to do but because I want her to be my wife. I want to be with her for always.” He explained.
Anastasia watched him and sighed softly, kissing his lips before being interrupted by Willow and Justin and she smiled.
“It feels... amazing.” She said to Justin before watching him hint that he needed Jobe and she raised an eyebrow and looked to Willow, wondering if she knew what that was all about.
“I wanted to thank you, for how much you’ve helped. I know Jobe’s injury meant it’s been difficult for him and that you stepped in.” She said to the other woman. She looked to one of the butlers who came in.
[i “Will that be all, Mrs Hughes?”] He has a funny smile about him and she nodded.
“Oh! Wait a moment, she pressed a bottle of wine into his hands.
“For the staff, to thank them for today.” She said to him and watched him leave. She looked back to Willow with a smile on her lips.
“You and Justin has a good day?” She asked her as she sat back down.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] While Willow never really considered herself to be a dancer, in this moment she enjoyed being in Justin’s arms and she wanted nothing more than for the day to last forever. Willow watched as other couples twirled around on the dance floor and she found herself smiling at each and every one of them.
She wasn’t sure how long she had spent on the dance floor with Justin but the time was irrelevant. She would happily stay there all day with him if that’s what he wanted. The rest of the night seemed to fly by and continued to move forward without a hitch at all. More and more people took their leave but the one thing that remained constant was Justin, not once leaving her side.
When it was more private, he twirled her around and wrapped his arms around her and she laughed deeply. She looked up at him and smiled. [b “It has certainly been quite a day. It’s hard to believe this place was heaving with people a few hours ago.”]
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Even though he wanted the night to last, he was happy when people started to filter out. When they were finally left alone they would officially start their lives together as man and wife and he would share his bed with Anastasia and wake up next to her for the rest of his life. The thought of such brought a smile to his face as he bid goodnight to guests as they started to leave.
His mother approached them just before she left and honestly he was glad that she was there to share the day with them. He knew that she would have regret it if she had stayed away from them. He was so happy to hear her apology and was more than happy to accept the woman into his arms as he embraced her and watched as she then embraced his wife. The exchange between them was beautiful. He watched as she left and glanced over to Justin and Willow. They hadn’t spoke to them much on this day but they had been so busy with guests and they knew that they had all the time in the world to talk. They all lived together after all.
He then turned his attention back to Anastasia and took her cheek in his hand. [b “I’m more than alright my love. I’m ecstatic.”]
Justin rolled his eyes,
“This secret affection thing sure is a real pain.” He he chuckled quietly to her and just relaxed with her. Everyone was in such good spirits and it had been such a wonderful day and he was truly proud to be part of it. He sighed out with relief that today had gone so smoothly and regardless of showing affection or not, he had a beautiful woman in his arms. He had never felt such a strong sense of protection to keep someone safe in all his life.
As the night went on, people left and filtered out. He sighed in relief at being left with more quiet. He looked to Willow and twirled her around when it was finally peaceful.
“What a day.” He said quietly and wrapped his arms around her slender form, just being with her was enough, knowing that by some good grace she was his but he wanted to make it official. He watched her with keen eyes, drinking in all of her features.
Anastasia watched Jobe and returned his kiss softly. She let the night play out, she still seemed in disbelief they were married and didn’t have to hide everything away. She was lost in the moment with Jobe and nothing and no one else mattered.
As the night drew on, people filtered out after giving the new couple their best of course. Anastasia sighed as the night went quiet.
[i “I wish you both all the best.”] Jobe’s mother approached them and Anastasia immediately stood straighter.
[i “My words before were born from ignorance and fear but seeing you both now, I realise I was wrong.”] She said to them and embraced her son and then her daughter in law.
[i “And I always did want a daughter.”] She added with a smile before bustling off.
Anastasia was relieved Jobe’s mother hasn’t excluded Jobe over all this and she looked to him when she left.
“Are you alright?” She asked and glanced to where his injury was.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow smiled and took a seat with Justin. The food was delicious, and she was sure that there was nothing that could have possibly ruined this day for Jobe and Anastasia. The meal was filled with chatter and every now and then she glanced over as the happy couple and she couldn’t help but find herself filled with joy at the happiness that radiated from the two of them.
Later, Justin took it upon himself to raise a toast to their friends. His words were beautiful, and she was more than happy to raise her glass of wine and join in the cheers of the rest of the guests. The celebrations were to move to the ballroom and she followed the four of them where they would witness the first dance between the bride and groom. She watched as the couple moved around the dance floor and she looked up to Justin when he spoke towards her and kissed her forehead. [b “Careful…”] She said quietly, looking around to see if anyone had noticed his show of affection.
She took hold of his hand with a nod of her head and moved towards the floor with him, joining in with the dance as other people started to filter in around them. [b “I am so glad that they have had such a perfect day.”] She said with a smile, wanting nothing more than to be able to rest her head upon his chest as they danced but she resisted the temptation, keeping her arms on his shoulders while they moved with the music.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Jobe couldn’t have been happier with the words Justin spoke and he was excited to be able to share a dance with his wife on the dance floor. As they moved towards the ballroom he leaned down to whisper in Anastasia’s ear. [b “You know, I was never much of a dancer. I will try very hard not to step on your toes.”] He said with a laugh as he held her hand and waited for the music to start.
Surprisingly he did not take much notice of anyone else as they moved to the music, concentrating all of his energy on Anastasia. He was careful not to move too freely that is might cause him discomfort, but he was sure that nothing would be able to cause that now. His mind was completely focused on his wife. [b “I love you too.”] He said before leaning down to press a kiss upon her lips. When he parted and glanced around he noticed that people had joined them on the dance floor. [b “Today has been perfect.”]
Justin raised an eyebrow,
“Oh? Well that’s a lucky turn of events then.” He chuckled and watched her carefully. He sat with her and honestly, it was a really good day. The food was spectacular and he thought to himself that he would ask her to marry him, sooner rather than later and he would ask Jobe. He couldn’t picture himself with anyone else and he wanted what Jobe and Anastasia had.
He took a drink of scotch and supposed a toast to the bride and groom was in order as he stood and waited for silence.
“I think a toast to the good health of the new Mr And Mrs Hughes is in order.” He said,
“May they have many happy years together, it’s so rare a love like this finds itself blooming.” He said and raised his glass as other guests did and took a drink before sitting and listening to the music.
“I’m pretty sure this is the part where you two dance and then me and Willow join in.” He remarked with a laugh to Anastasia and Jobe. Even with the sun setting, Willow looked so beautiful and he took her hand and lead her into the ballroom.
“You know, I’m not sure how I got so lucky?” He said to her and kissed her forehead, stealing a small moment where everyone was watching Jobe and Anastasia.
“Can I have this dance?” He asked and smiled to her as he lead her onto the floor after Anastasia and Jobe had had their moment.
“And I’m very glad, Mr Hughes.” She said to him. She looked to Justin as he offered a toast and she smiled at him. It felt so liberating to not have to hide their emotions or affections anymore. They could be as husband and wife and Anastasia looked to Justin when he spoke.
“Oh.” She said and guests filtered into the ball room. Of course Anastasia and Jobe were to lead the dance and Anastasia didn’t have much experience in dancing but she would give it a good go. Besides, she was dancing with Jobe. It didn’t matter about anything else.
She looked up at him and smiled,
“I love you.” She murmured quietly as they moved on the floor. It wasn’t long until Justin and Willow joined them and others filtered in too after that. She was so relieved and she kept a close eye he wasn’t overdoing himself with his injury. She knew he was putting on a brave face and wouldn’t want anyone to see his weakness.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow glanced around at the guests, noticing that all of them seemed to be genuinely happy to bear witness to such an event. She was glad that there did not seem to be anyone here who wished them anything but happiness, including Jobe’s mother. When they reached the end of the aisle, Willow took her place next to Justin, glancing up at him with a smile for only a second before putting her focus on the ceremony.
It was beautiful, and she could not prevent herself from crying as she witnessed the exchange of vows and their kiss that made their marriage binding for life. What was more, was that Anastasia seemed completely happy and there was nothing more important to her than seeing this woman get everything she deserved. Willow joined in the cheers of the crowd as she wiped away the tears from her eyes.
When it was time for them to descend the aisle, she took hold of Justin’s arm and followed them closely. She looked up at Justin as blushed as his words. [b “You know, it’s tradition for the best man to find himself with a bridesmaid. At least in our time.”] She said quietly and giggled to herself.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] The ceremony was perfect. He repeated the words that were required of him and he turned to face Anastasia when it was time to finalise their vows. Now that the veil was removed from her face he could see the true beauty of her and he could not be happier. Their kiss was one of joy and promises for the future and he smiled at her before they walked back up the aisle, nodding to guests as they congratulated them further.
They took their place at the table and he look to Justin and Willow as they took their seats and then looked back to Anastasia. [b “We did, Mrs Hughes.”] He said with a smile, taking her hand and placing another kiss upon her lips, not worried about showing affection for her now that they were married. It was their wedding day after all.
Justin watched Anastasia and Willow but his eyes were immediately pulled to Willow. He smiled at the sight of her and watched her, mouthing a ‘wow’ to her. She looked beyond beautiful in the sunlight and in that dress. He looked to Jobe and Anastasia and smiled a little to them as the ceremony took place. He could hardly believe it was actually happening!
The ceremony went off without a hitch and he was honestly relieved there were no dramas, the two of them had dealt with quite enough already. He cheered with the crowds and applauded the new Mr and Mrs Hughes as they were allowed to kiss finally and he was absolutely overjoyed at the sight of them together.
He linked his arm with Willow and followed Jobe and Anastasia down the aisle.
“You look wonderful.” He said to her quietly, looking beyond proud to have her on his arm as they walked and sat at the main table with Jobe and Anastasia.
Anastasia was glad the veil was in place because her tears could be masked at seeing Jobe standing there. She went through the ceremony, trembling with nerves and excitement. They’d gone through so much to get to this point.
The priest stepped forwards to shift her veil back and Anastasia looked to Jobe with a smile as they were pronounced man and wife and the priest introduced them as Mr and Mrs Hughes. She leans up and kissed him gently, listening to the applause and congratulatory murmurs. She sat beside Jobe and honestly she didn’t seem to believe that it had finally happened, that they were husband and wife. She looked to Willow and Justin and smiled at them as well, she was sure it wouldn’t be long until it was their turn too!
“We did it.” She said to Jobe quietly and giggled like a giddy school girl. They were actually married!
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow blushed slightly at the woman’s complement. In all honesty she felt nervous about seeing Justin as she was dressed like this. It was far more formal than anything she had yet to wear around him and seeing him dressed just as smart made her heart skip a beat. Willow smiled towards Anastasia, glad that she was happy with her flowers. Honestly, Willow was overwhelmed with emotion at the moment. She was about to watch her best friend, her sister, get married.
She worried for a moment when there was a knock at the door as she wondered who it might be. The last person she expected to see was Jobe’s mother and Willow’s expression looked just as surprised as Anastasia’s as she watched the exchange between the two. When she left she found herself looking at Anastasia with the same confused expression as her. [b “Well that was…unexpected. The necklace really does suit you though.”] She said with a smile and nodded when it was time for her to make way towards the ceremony.
Willow smiled and took hold of the woman’s hand and started towards the garden with her, pausing so that she could take a breath and pull her veil down. [b “You really do look beautiful.”] With that she followed Anastasia down the aisle, focusing on nothing but getting to the end of the aisle without crying.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Jobe laughed in response to Justin and nodded as they made their way down the stairs to the garden where they were greeted by lots of guests. He caught sight of his mother who smiled towards him and nodded before taking her own seat. [b “I knew she would come around.”] He said quietly to Justin as the music started to play, indicating that he should take his place. He smiled towards Justin as he took his place next to him.
His nerves were on the edge and he could tell by the way the priest smiled that Anastasia was on her way down the aisle. He held his breath as he turned to face her, and a smile found her lips and tears wet his eyes. She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen and he could not believe his luck that he would be marrying her today.
He looked towards his mother for a second, who was already crying at the sight of her walking down the aisle and then his attention was back on Anastasia until she was stood next to him. [b “You look beautiful.”] He whispered to her.
Justin laughed a little,
“I think that’s perfectly normal. And you look incredibly smart. We’ll have to make sure ladies aren’t fainting in the aisles at the sight of you!” He laughed a little and nodded,
“I think Willow and Anastasia might well kill us if we bumped into them.” He remarked as he made his way down with Jobe.
People were of course thrilled to see Jobe on his wedding day and he stood to the side as Jobe took his place. Of course there was an air of expectation and excitement as he watched everyone chattering away quietly. There was a string quartet playing some gentle music which Justin found oddly soothing. He drew in a breath and just waited. It seemed like time was standing still as he waited and he supposed this was how it was. Willow had been right though, weddings in this time weren’t about glamour or how much money was spent, it was about the two getting married. And he couldn’t be happier for Jobe and Anastasia.
“Willow! Look at you!” Anastasia smiled and watched the woman. She looked perfect and Anastasia was so pleased to see the dress worked on her. She looked amazing.
“Justin will faint upon seeing you!” She laughed and took the flowers,
“They look beautiful, Willow, thank you-“ she cut off as there was a knock on the door.
“Come in.” Anastasia said and she was shocked to see Jobe’s mother.
The greying woman looked to Anastasia, honestly she was impressed. Anastasia hasn’t expected the woman to make an appearance and given their last interaction.
[i “I do not want to make you late but...”] There was an unspoken apology.
[i “You should have this. It has been my mother’s and hers before her.”] She procured a necklace from a box, placing it around Anastasia’s neck.
[i “It suits you perfectly.”] The woman looked like she might cry as she looked over the two women.
[i “Right- yes, well. I should head down. Do not be late.”] She said and smiled a little before going down to join the guests and she smiled at Jobe as she took her seat.
Anastasia was perplexed as she looked to Willow,
“Shall we?” She murmured, nervously as she headed down and paused a moment to place her veil over her face, such was the tradition in these times. She looked to Willow, nervously before she stepped into the garden and looked down the aisle to see Jobe, her breath hitching at the sight of him as she made her way down to join him.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow awakened nice and early the next morning, moving about the house as quietly as possible so that she did not wake anyone else too early. She wanted to make sure that she took care of some of the arrangements herself. Willow wanted everything to be perfect for Anastasia and Jobe and when she was satisfied that the chairs were in the right place and the flowers were arranged perfectly she finally took herself back up to her room to prepare herself. She pulled the dress on and started to fix her hair in a sophisticated up-do that complemented the dress. She looked at her reflection in the mirror and when she was satisfied with the overall look she gave her reflection a short nod. Anastasia had been right about the colour suiting her complexion.
She made her way towards Anastasia’s room and knocked on the door gently before pushing it open and stepping inside. Willow stopped dead at the door as she took in the woman’s appearance in her dress and her hand rested over her heart. [b “Oh Anastasia. You look absolutely stunning.”] She said as she neared her. With her hair and veil, the dress was more than complete, and she was sure that it was made just for her. [b “Are you ready to become Mrs Hughes?”] She asked softly, taking hold of the woman’s hand rather than pulling her into an embrace. The last thing she wanted to do was ruin one single strand of hair or disturb the dress in anyway.
Willow had been holding the flowers in her other hand and she gave the bride her bouquet. [b “I hope these are alright for you. I did not want you to have anything that distracted too much from your beauty.”] She said with a smile.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] As expected, Jobe did not sleep very well and since her was up early he decided to start getting ready. He needed the extra time anyway as he was finding it difficult to pull on his shirt and jacket as easily as he normally had but in time he managed it and he was working on his hair in front of the mirror when he heard Justin enter the room. He turned towards him and smiled.
[b “Not long at all. Well don’t you look smart!”] He said with another smiled before turning back to the mirror to finish fixing his final bit of hair. He walked over to the window to look outside himself and he sighed with relief. [b “It really does look beautiful out there. I’m impressed.”] He said before looking up at Justin. [b “I have never been so nervous and excited in my entire life. Is that normal?”] He asked with a shake of his head and a nervous laugh. [b “I suppose we better get ourselves down there so we do not bump into the ladies on the corridor.”]
Justin Rose early in the morning, washing and getting changed into the suits Jobe had gotten for them. He made sure he looked completely sharp and not a hair was out of place. He went down towards Jobe’s room, knocking on the door. He knew Anastasia and Willow would be in a room themselves so Jobe couldn’t see Anastasia before she came down the aisle. He went into Jobe’s room.
“Not long now.” He commented as he came in and closed the door. Staff were of course making sure everything was perfect and given all the staff had a great respect and genuine liking of their Master, he was sure they would make it absolutely perfect. He looked out the window and it was a beautiful summer’s day. Flower arrangements and a beautiful arch of roses stood pride of place in the garden and he grinned to Jobe. The man was probably nervous above everything else, but that was what Justin was there for. To calm him down and assure him everything as fine.
A priest in the garden was greeting the guests and making sure they sat in the aisles that had been planned out and the staff were busy cooking up a storm for after the ceremony.
“Everything’s going great.” Justin said to Jobe reassuringly.
Anastasia has barely slept she was so excited! She was up early and changing into her dress, an older woman who had served the house all her life helping her lace up everything. Her hair was fixed beautifully and there was a touch of rouge on her, but nothing overpowering as she didn’t want to look unnatural. She peeked out the window at all the guests and she felt butterflies flutter in her stomach. This was it. She was getting married in a short while.
The garden looked beautiful and everyone seemed to happy, dressed in bright colours for her and Jobe’s wedding ceremony. It was also such a beautiful day, like God himself approved such a thing. There were tables set out for the meal after the ceremony and she smoothed her dress and calmed her nerves.
[i “There, you look a picture of perfection.”] The older woman said with a smile.
[i “Now you must wait.”] She said and Anastasia thanked her quietly as she stood before the mirror. She looked just how she always imagined as she fixed her veil, in her hair, not shielding her face just yet. She was incredibly nervous and excited, it was such a peculiar set of emotions.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] If they were in their own time she was sure that she would have invited him back to her room where they could have a little more privacy but that was not how things were done here and neither of them could risk being dishonour to this household so they would wait. When they parted from their kiss once more she felt Justin’s breath dance across her neck and ear, sending a shudder through her spine. Damn this era and their rules indeed. She smiled towards him, her chest still rising and falling heavily as she recovered from their moment of intimacy. [b “Perhaps we should have chosen our destination more carefully.”] Neither one of them could have predicted that they would end up feeling this way; wanting these things.
Willow nodded when he told her that she should retire to her room although she was unsure of whether she would be able to sleep well that night knowing where this could have gone. Her lips parted to speak but he caught them with his mouth and shared one last kiss before he bid her goodnight. [b “Goodnight Justin.”] She said breathlessly as she watched him walk away from her. After she spent a few seconds catching her breath she made her own way to her room and closed the door behind her, almost giggling at the intimacy hey shared. It was going to be hard for them to keep their hands off each other if every kiss they shared was going to be that intense.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] To say that Jobe was nervous about Anastasia’s reaction was an understatement. The last thing he wanted to do was cause a rift between them the night before they were supposed to get married and he might well have done that. However, when her lips started to turn up into a smile he felt a bit of relief swim through him. It wasn’t until she voiced her forgiveness that he allowed the relief to fully consume him. [b “I’m quite alright Anastasia. You have no need to worry about me.”] He smiled down at her and accepted her kiss willingly.
[b “Goodnight Anastasia.”] He watched her leave and he let out a sigh. Tomorrow would be the greatest day of his life and regardless of the fact that he was exhausted from putting on a brave face and hiding his injury, he knew that he would not be able to get much sleep that night. He retired to his room some minutes later with a glass of scotch, hoping that alcohol might calm his nerves slightly. This time tomorrow he would no longer be going to bed alone.
Justin grinned at her softly as he met her lips with his again. She drove him wild and he was sure she didn’t understand just how wild she made him.
“Damn this era and their rules.” He whispered in Willows ear as his finger traced her jawline. He had also promised Jobe he wouldn’t do anything untoward whilst he and Willow were unmarried. He was regretting that promise now. A lot.
Justin sighed and breathed in Willows scent quietly, standing in the empty hall and he watched her.
“You should go to bed, before this escalates.” He said and smiled at her, pulling her close one last time and kissing her passionately, arms around her waist and a hand to her cheek. He pulled back and smiled,
“Goodnight, Willow.” He said to her and honestly he felt drunk on her, giddy and completely in love right that moment.
Anastasia felt Jobe’s hand stopping her she watched him, looking up at him and reading his expression as he apologised. She couldn’t not forgive him. He had organised all this tonight and they were getting married in the morning. She smiled a little,
“All is forgiven.” She said to him quietly and touched his cheek very gently.
“Be sure and rest properly, your injury is not yet healed completely.” She said, still concerned for his health.
They were alone. And it was quiet. Anastasia looked to Jobe before kissing his lips gently, even though they were engaged, such public shows of affection in front of guests were frowned upon and it felt nice to just seal their bond and their love.
“Good night, Jobe.” It would be the last night they would spend apart and she could not wait to never have to part from him again. She went to her room and smiled a little, she was too excited to sleep.
