[size=9]((Taken straight out of the Logs for the White Lotus Pavilion, I won't bother editing as it's long and I can't be asked . Events here take place immediately after Mai and Art left the Red Dragon Inn after a long, drawn out discussion went on about the Mage Registrations. Many thanks to both Muns involved and uber thanks to Ammy-Mun! You'll see why in a sec Enjoy!))
"Slow down!" :He called after Mai, jogging to catch up to her:
Sobbing, doubling over her body shaking
:Catching Mai up, his arms wrapped around her tightly, holding her up: "Mai?! Whats wrong love?" :Looking at her, concern in his eyes as he held her close:
"Im terrified Art! I thought the dragon was you!" wiping her eyes "when I saw the paper and you werent there, I thought it was you"
:Holding Mai, he kissed her gently, holding her close, he stroked her hair: "I thought you'd think that...Oh Mai, I'm sorry. I tride to find you when I read the story, but you weren't at home, the Estate or any of the mansions, I even went to the Academy and Vampire House to find you...I guess you must have been at the Spa still.."
Gripping his shirt "I was with Clover and being guarded, then when I got out I found this under Clovers window wipers on her car"
:Still holding on to her, he kissed her cheek again: "It's alright Mai, I'm fine. Everything is fine, it takes much more than something as mundane as a bullet to kill me, I assure you" :Holding her tight, he kissed her cheek: "Don't worry, please Mai, I'm perfectly safe"
Looking up at him, red streaks down her face, she was crying, but being a vampire she was crying black blood "I cant help it" Her eyes flashing white blue and staying that way
"I know, and I can't help but worry about you ether" :He replied, looking back at her, one of his hands came up to carefully wide away the blood tears as he looked into her eyes: "It'll be okay Mai. I promise, it will be, really. Ten days from now, I'll be going to the GAC and I'll speak to the govoner personally. You'll see, things will be fine after that"
Wiping her eyes "I hope so Art, otherwise, we leave Rhy'din"
:Looking into Mai's eyes for a moment, he blinked slowly, not in surprise or shock, but acceptance: "What ever makes you feel safer Mai. Anything"
Holding him close sobbing
:Kissing the top of her head, he clung onto her tightly, keeping her as close to him as he could with out hurting her: "I love you Mai...And I'll do anything you want, if it makes you feel safe"
Her body shaking less "I dont want those emotions hitting our baby like that Art, its not good for the baby"
:He nodded: "I understand love, it's not good for you ether" :Still holding her, stroking her hair gently to comfort her: "I just want whats best for you both"
"I want to go somewhere quiet where no one else goes" Wiping her eyes "we need peace"
:He nodded with a smile: "I have just the thing my love" :He murmured, kissing her cheel:
"whats that?" Sighing relaxing, absorbing all the peace in to her body
:He smiled at her: "Well, I had wanted to save it for the honeymoon but..What with the baby on the way and all, I figured to move things up" :Projecting comfort, peace and tranquillity from his mind to her's he smiled again: "I had a cottage built out in the Glen, deep in the forest and far away from any and everyone. Theres just room for us....And the baby"
Blinking, looking at him "what?! are you serious?" Thinking "why dont we elope?" Chuckling
:Arthour nodded: "Very serious" :He replied with a smile, kissing her again, he then said: "If you want"
Sighing "I want to be with you always, i want to be your wife, and I want our child happy" Smiling at him
"Everything you just said, I want as well" :He replied, smiling back at her then kissed her deeply: "I want to be your's Mai, your husband and father to our child" :He said after a moment, pressing his forhead against her's, looking into her eyes:
Laughing softly "Soooooo........know any ministers?"
"I know an angle" :He replied with a grin: "Beside you that is"
Smirking "I'm a demon love, not an angel"
"And I love you all the same" :He replied, kissing her again:
Kissing him back "Are they around?" Looking up at him
"Actually...She is...But I don't know if we can get her on such short notice" :He replied with a smile:
"who is it?" tilting her head
"Ammy" :He said after a moment: "She's an angle of Canis, lupe godess"
:After a moment of thinking, he said: "Are you serious about this Mai? Becasue I can contact her right now if you want?" :Looking into her eyes:
Nodding "mhm I'm sure"
"Just a moment then" :He said with a smile: "I'll see if she is availible"
A shimmer of light and Ammy appeared a bit puzzled and a look up to the skies. A tilt of head to the heavens and she nodded after a moment. <I>~Ah, time for angelic duties~</I>
Binking "nice entrance"
:Kissing Mai's cheek, he smiled: "You said you were serious, still sure?" :A hand holding Mai's cheek as he looked at her:
Nodding chuckling "yes, very serious"
Turning, Ammy smiled, her jeans and shirt shifting to flowing robes of cream and trimmed in sparkling lavender silk trim. Robes denoting Canis, Goddess of Lupinossai. "I see and hear two hearts wish to beat as one and two souls wish to join? Is this true?" she looked at them both seriously, golden eyes glowing behind ruby lenses.
:Looking at Ammy, he smiled and he looked like he was fit to burst with happyness: "Very true Ammy. Can you marry us? Please?"
"It is true" Smiling at her, then looking at Art
"Indeed I can and shall if it is the wish of you both. Speaking with the authority of Canis, Goddess of Lupinossai, granted power and authority to be her by the Rhydin Pantheon, I, Ammy Spiritor, Loaa of Canis do perform the marriage rites. May I know the names of those being bound today?"
"Mai silverblood" Smiling at Ammy then at Art
"Arthour Chazore" :He said with a smile at Ammy, before he looked at Mai, that smile didn't go anywhere:
"Arthur Chazore, by the binding power of Canis, Godess who holds the weight of the heart seriously, watches the actions of desire, intent, purity and values faithfulness in the courts of love and intimacy with a sworn mate and soul bond, will you swear to uphold, love, cherish, protect, die for and go to the ends of eternity for Mai Silverblood?"
"I do" :Arthour said, with out a moments hesitation:
Ammy looked to Mai.
"Mai Silverblood, by the binding power of Canis, Godess who holds the weight of the heart seriously, watches the actions of desire, intent, purity and values faithfulness in the courts of love and intimacy with a sworn mate and soul bond, will you swear to uphold, love, cherish, protect, die for and go to the ends of eternity for Arthur Chazore?"
Smiling at him "I do"
"Canis finds your words true and without lies. Do either of you have a symbol of your love to present to me?"
Chewing her lip, making a black shadow ring "I have this ring" showing it to Ammy
Ammy held out her stone paw to Mai and a look to Art.
Placing the ring in her paw, moving back to her original place
:Smiling, he reached into his pocket, pulling out a ring of red. Crystalised fire, like his origami dragons. putting it in Ammy's paw he said: "I made this, the night we proposed to each other" :Standing back beside Mai, he smiled at her:
Smiling up at him, taking his hand
:Holding her hand, he had to tear his eyes away from her to look at Ammy now:
Chuckling, looking back to Ammy
Holding the rings, she closed her paw and close her eyes a moment and raised her head. <I>~Mother of Love and Kindness, Virture and Life, two souls travel alone no longer, upon this realm they are now made whole, trinkets of fire and shadow to hold their vows of love, beyond these trinkets their love hold testament to the stars above. Aviis, aviis, aviis, Blessed Mother of Lupinossai bless Arthur and Mai in their union. May their kith and kin fear no sorrow. May they prosper.~</I>
Opening her paw the rings took on a glow of deity power. From her robes she pulled a crystal needle. "Please approach, Arthur and Mai. To be wed is close at hand."
:Stepping closer, he looked at Mai again, smiling still:
Smiling back at him, moving closer to Ammy
"Present your left hands."
:Unfortunately, that meant letting go of Mai's hand for him, but he did as asked, holding his left hand out to Ammy:
Lifting her left hand to Ammy, a smile on her lips
Ammy would prick the finger tip of the ring finger on each of the presented hands. A drop of Arthour's blood to splash on the fire ring. A drop of Mai's blood to drop on the shadow ring. The blood was absorbed and the glow died to a muted sheen. Holding the rings she nodded to Art and Mai. "Place the rings on speak your vows."
"Or, you may simply put the rings on. Often newly weds are at a loss of words." she smiled softly.
:Reaching forwards to take his ring, he looked up at Ammy with a smile, beofre he picked it up and faced Mai, smiling at her. Taking her hand, he placed the ring of crystallised fire on her ring finger and said: "Mai, this ring...Is a physical representation of every promise I have ever made you. Every time I've said I love you and want to be with you, this ring will be there to remind you, I meant it all"
Smiling, hearing Art, she remained quiet now.
Looking up at him, smiling, taking the shadow ring, placing it on his finger "This ring is a symbol of my love for you, a never ending love, I want it to serve you as a reminder I love you with my soul, and how happy you have made me, and our child" Swallowing hard looking up at him grinning
"Your vows made, rings given. Canis blesses you, your house hold, your children and your futures. The blood upon thy rings will make them glow whenever one or the other is in need. An ever dear reminder of your promises...." she looked up to the heavens a moment a bit surprised then smiled and looked down. "And one more thing..."
Blinking looking at Ammy "Yes?"
:Quirking an eyebrow at the lupe, he waited:
"Canis grants your household protection. A guardian and patron angel to watch over you in times of need and over your children. I, Ammy Spiritor am charged with being guardian of the Chazore-Silverblood line. My duties are your's to command." she bowed politely. Then looked up. "You are now man and wife."
"Now kiss her you dork!" Ammy laughed to Art.
:That's what he wanted to hear, that last bit. Looking at Mai, he tured her so that he could kiss her, and kiss her he did, no encoragement needed!:
Blinking kissing him back happily her arms around his neck, laughing
With a clap of paws, a shower of confetti came down upon them in a rainbow of colours. Several wedding gift baskets with all kinds of baked goodies, alchemy goodies and more were by them. Smiling watching them kiss, Ammy chuckled, her angel wings of neon green spread and she vanished. ~To the newly wed hearts, may you hold fast and firm in your love endearing. New life and new hope dawns this night.~ her voice echoed from nothingness.
Smiling up at him sighing happily "I love you, my husband"
"And I love you, my wife" :He replied, kissing her again:
Kissing him back, smiling "That sounds good, doesnt it?" sighing
"It does, yes" :He replied, holding her nad smiling:
Smiling "Shall we go home?"
