It was very late in the night or very early in the morning, but it didn't seem to bother the citizens of the Emerald City. The celebrations started at noon, and since a celebration was always a good way to spend the time, the citizens of Oz continued singing and dancing for hours and hours.
Things started to calm down after Glinda's speech several weeks before. People started to feel much more comfortable with the truth by now, though it was a difficult truth to accept. Even the ones that didn't want to accept Elphaba as the new Wizard had to admit that the Emerald City never looked better. Most of its citizens adored Glinda and Elphaba. They had every reason for it, too. They were making good, just as they promised.
"I think that everything will be alright after all," said Elphaba with a smile, looking at her husband.
Fiyero returned her smile, and nodded. "Everything will be great," he promised.
"Tired already?" Glinda asked as she and Boq passed by, on their way to the closest dance floor. "Come on, let's dance!" she called in their direction while pulling Boq to the middle of the dance floor. Everyone cheered and started dancing around them. The music got louder, the beat faster.
"So… you wanna dance?" Fiyero asked, looking at Glinda and Boq.
"No," replied Elphaba, slowly shaking her head. Their eyes met. "I just want… to stay here like this, with you, for as long as you're mine."
He heard her in spite of the deafening music, and held her. Then he looked at her wedding dress and smiled. Lavender went pretty good with green. "Don't think I had a chance to tell you how beautiful you look today."
She frowned, looking down at her dress, then back at him. "You don't have to lie to me," she said gently, touching his face.
"It's not lying. It's looking at things… another way," said Fiyero, smiling at her. She gave him a look. "I mean it. This color is not that bad."
"Not that bad? What are you talking about? I look Glindafied," she complained.
"You look beautiful," he said firmly, then gave her a look. "Let other people talk, for a change," he reminded her with that smirk on his face.
"Oh! You are absolutely impo-"
She couldn't end up her protest. Fiyero pulled her closer to him and his lips met hers halfway with a kiss. Around them, everyone kept dancing. Above them, in the darkness of the night, sparkled the most amazing fireworks. Pink and green. Together. Exactly as it should be.
