I would like to start out with a thank you to Sims3Fan1986 for this gift from the Sims 3 store. Thank you so much!! I can't wait to use it. :D
Want to gift me? Visit my wishlist here!
Before you start reading I suggest you check out this post from my friend and fellow challenge parent, Logan Fey. Dawn joined his challenge (mentioned it in the previous chapter)and gave birth to two beautiful baby girls. Read and find out their names here.
"I know, I know, I'm sorry. I was suppose to pick up Karen, then she had a dress crisis and we had to run out and get her a new dress and-"
"Dean! When will you be here?"
"Oh, um, not for another hour and a half."
"What! Dean I need you to give me away. I can't have the groomsmen give me away and dad is no longer with us."
"I know, that's why I called in a favor. He will be there to give you away in 45 minutes."
The phone was soon cut off after that. I didn't get the chance to ask who was taking me down the aisle.
"Dawn, is he coming?", Addy asked first.
"Dean wont be here in time, so he sent someone else," I answered, looking at the white wall.
"Who?", Violet asked right away.
"I don't know."
"What do you mean you don't know, Dawn?"
"I mean Dean didn't tell me who it was before he was cut off. I know nothing, besides that he'll be here in 45 minutes, Addy."
There was a short silence before Salline suddenly spoke. "But what if the back up guy is late?"
"You can't get the bride all worried," Violet added in.
When I heard Violet call me a bride I couldn't help but smile on the inside. Knowing that in a couple hours I would be married to the man I love, was the only thing keeping me from screaming.
"Same time it was 5 seconds ago, cool it bro you'll be fine; this is your wedding day," Quinn said, arms crossed and still leaning against the wall beside the couch.
Logan just sat there and watch with amusement. My pacing must be something funny. Obviously he has never been married and wouldn't know the nervousness that I'm feeling at the moment.
"That's my brother. Think positive. Now Logan and I have to get going and see if the other groomsmen are ready. So you can stay here for a little longer if you like, but just be out there in 10 minutes."
I released a large sigh and said Thanks before Quinn nodded and walked out the room, with Logan right behind him.
"Cassidy! What are you doing here?"
"Cassidy, why are you here? Did Dawn invite you?"
"Dawn, every time I hear that name I just wanna, I just wanna..." Cassidy's body stiffed up and she looked like she was holding back anger built up inside her. Soon her face relaxed and she looked back up at me, smiling. "If we hadn't broken up when we did, this would be our wedding."
"Cassidy, no. We were over a long time ago."
"CASSIDY! What are you doing?"
"Newbie what is taking you so long?"
"Sorry, mom. I-"
"We were just chatting. I came to wish Newbie good luck." Cassidy said, looking at my mom.
I looked away and said, "No mom. No need for anyone to worry. Just saying our goodbyes and wishing each other luck in life."
"Well, then are you ready for your wedding?"
I looked at her and smiled brightly, "You bet."
"Where is he?"
"I don't know, Dawn, I don't know. Why don't you have one of your other brothers walk you?"
"Because they won't be able to make it until after the ceremony starts. But if this guy doesn't show up, then I'll have no one to walk me down the aisle. I'm a nervous wreck right now, Addy. Please tell me what to do."
For the first time since that call from my brother, I smiled. She was right, all that matters is that Newbie and I love each other. "Thank you, Addy."
"No problem. Now I'm gonna head out and meet the bridesmaids before the wedding starts. See you out there in a few?"
"Yeah," I said, smiling.
"You look absolutely beautiful in your wedding gown."
"Okay. Then what about my other questions? Why did you leave? And why are you a vampire? I thought you were human last time I seen you."
"Well the vampire cure was still in testing and I offered to be the g and I guess it wasn't strong enough and I changed back..... And for me leaving, well I had to leave. I couldn't stay in Hidden Springs and watch the woman I love start a life with another man. I needed to move on and I only came back because I have moved on, Dawn I met someone and I wanted you to meet her, because your opinion is everything to me."
I smiled on the inside and out. Everything Lerk has said made me want to cry happy tears. I had been feeling a bit of guilt about being with Newbie when Lerk still loved me and now all is well and we both can move on and start new lives and be happy.
"Lerk thank you."
I wanted to thank him for everything: thank him for being in my challenge, protecting me from the evil that was Wei, thank him for loving me when I loved him, thank him for the kids he gave me, consoling me when I had lost my son and he found me in the park, thank him for leaving me that day and opening my eyes and making me finally realize who is the man I truly loved, and thank him for being here today to walk me down that aisle. My brother knew what he was doing when he sent Lerk to that dressing room. Even though I didn't say any of this he knew exactly what I was thanking him for.
**Third Person P.O.V.**
(If you haven't read the post I linked you before the beginning of this chapter, these two girls are Dawn's daughters from Logan Fey's 100 Baby Challenge)
(Deacon Turner is the grandson of Dawn, and fellow challenge mom, Violet Newbie. He is also part of Violet Newbie's legacy which you can read here)
"Newbie you have always been my best friend, ever since the first day I met you. Even though we were just friends towards the beginning of my challenge, I always knew we were gonna be together forever, protecting each other from heartbreak and giving each other a reason to laugh. Have I always loved you? Yes, but that love was nothing more then the love you give a friend. But now I love you more then just a friend. Your my soul mate, my forever. I don't know know why it took me so long to see that the perfect man has always been right here beside me. I was to blind to see it, but I see you now and I'm not letting my one chance of happiness escape my grasp. I love you."
"Dawn. When I first heard that name I was like, she'll have the coolest name ever if she had my surname. It was only a simple joke in my mind then, but now her taking my surname as her own and agreeing to be my wife is no joke. I never imagined that one day she'd be my wife, I hadn't realized I was in love with her until I went ring shopping with Lerk and I couldn't get rid of this little green monster on my back. I was jealous and I didn't understand it. She was all I thought about whenever I wasn't with her. I somehow always knew I loved her but I didn't want to admit it because she was taken. But one day Addy told me that Dawn was in love with me, then she lied and said Dawn decided to date other people, which forced me to confront Dawn and tell her my feelings. And I thank Addy because if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be standing here getting married to the woman that filled my life with joy. And I love you to mom," Newbie added, causing a few giggles and laughs from the audience, "I love you Dawn and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you."
Congratulations to the happy couple!
I hope you enjoyed it cause the wedding is not over. Stay tune because I will be posting a chapter with the reception where you will see all the guests. You can see Lerk's special girl, see how her brother and their family is going, see two people meet for the first time (Could it be love? Maybe!), and maybe meet some of Dawn's family you haven't met yet. ;)
