26 8 9

Flowers littered the clouds as gentle music flowed through the air to give off the beautiful moment. Everything felt so light and airy, not an ounce of sorrow able to ruin this event. The mood was soft and romantic, but also joyful and forgiving.

Ayden placed a small kiss on my forehead, dancing slowly to the harp. "Never did I imagine I would be here." He looked around the scene, watching everyone watching us.

I rested my head against his chest, sighing in contentment. "But aren't you so glad you are? We get to spend forever together now."

He hands held my waist, swaying us to the rhythm of the music. "I wouldn't trade it for a second chance at life." He lifted my head and placed a sweet kiss on my lips.

He pulled away, slowly spinning me around and pulling me back to his chest. This moment couldn't be ruined by a single problem. I was in love and our love was accepted.

He grabbed my hand and kissed my fingers, looking at them. "We finally get to do the dirty."

"Ayden..." I laughed.

"What? It's not wrong to talk about it. We are technically married now, and we are allowed to want sex with each other. And I will proudly admit I am so ready for that tonight." He pushed some hair behind my ear.

"Me too. I've never had it, and I can say I'm excited to finally do it with you and it's not going to be wrong." I giggled and looked up into his green eyes. "I love you, Ayden."

He smiled at me and kissed my nose. "I love you, too, Angel."

"Eliana?" I heard a girl's voice sound behind me.

I looked back and gasped. I was barely able to believe my eyes. Where had she been all this time? "Selene."

Ayden looked at me and nodded his head as I followed Selene to a table. "I can't believe you're here. I haven't seen you all this time."

"I'm sorry. I guess I just got caught up in things after realizing Liam killed me. It's not exactly the best feeling in the world when your boyfriend murders you." She looked at the clouds beneath our feet.

I pulled her into my arms and gave her comfort. "I'm so sorry. I wish I could've done something. I missed you so much after seeing what happened. You were my only friend and I was just lost without you. After your death, I barely found my way back."

She pulled away from our hug and smiled a bit. "It's okay now, Elli. I'm here. I want you to know that."

I wiped a tear from my cheek and nodded. "Of course."

"I heard what happened. Liam killed you, too, huh?"

"He did. He killed you. He killed me. He killed Ayden. It's absolutely horrendous. Justice will never be served."

"Ayden; tell me more about him. I want to know about this boy who captured your heart." She replaced the sorrow on her face with a smile.

I looked back at Ayden who wore a white shirt with white pants. Never had I imagined he would dress in such a way. "He's amazing." I smiled. I looked at Selene again. "This boy was a tough one. I worked hard to change him and save his soul but he refused. I learned so much about him. I've seen his darkest parts and I've seen what makes his face light up with joy. He looks adorable when he's baking."

"Baking, huh?"

"A bad boy who bakes. Who's ever heard of such a thing? Not I. I guess you don't normally expect a man like him to be into something like that. He reunited with his family. He wasn't a good boy but he has become a better person. He never gave up smoking but now that we're dead, he doesn't have to smoke. No smoking, drinking... He gave up sex before dating Sunny. That is a big deal for a man." I chuckled.
