Dum dum dee dum, dum dum dee dum, here comes the bride, here comes the bride. I would thank all of my reviewers, but there are so many of you, that I'll just write out your names instead:

Disclaimer: I never have and never will own Treasure Planet nor do I own the links I used for the wedding dresses that are posted on my profile page or even the songs I use during the wedding reception (speaking of which, this chapter will seem really long because I plan on including the songs' lyrics, but that does not classify this story as a songfic).

The next few weeks were the busiest of Siria's life. Thankfully, she had Sarah to help her plan out every wedding detail. The venue and catering were the easiest to decide. Jim and Siria had asked Sarah for permission to host the reception at the Benbow Inn, to which the woman wholeheartedly agreed. Ben begged the engaged couple to let him cook for the reception, which was an offer that the young adults couldn't turn down.

Sure enough, the day after the graduation, Sarah took Siria to the best dressmaker on Montressor to choose not only the girl's wedding dress, but also the bridesmaids' dresses and the flower girls' dresses. That first day was mainly about Siria's dress, but the following week, Siria and Sarah brought along the other females in the wedding party: Mary as Siria's maid of honor; Siria's other friend Penelope Torres who was going to be a bridesmaid; and of course, Torelai, Bastet, and Catrine as the flower girls. Thankfully, the three little toddlers were now old enough to be flower girls, and Delbert Jr was just the right age to be the ring bearer.

Siria wanted to incorporate some of the colors of Elementia into the designs, so she could feel like her Elemental background was still part of her life, and Jim couldn't agree more. The dresses, the flowers, pretty much everything was in either red, gold, blue, silver, or purple.

Finally, after what felt like an eternity of fabric swatches, flower bouquets, and cake samples, the day of the wedding arrived. Jim stayed at the front of the church with his best man, Nicholas, and his groomsman, Penelope's twin brother, Antonio. They greeted guests of all alien races along with fellow graduates of the Interstellar Academy.

Jim smiled when he caught sight of Sarah coming out of the bride's room. Jim had never seen his mother look so beautiful. She had on a floor-length purple dress with a short-sleeved button-down purple jacket over it. Her chocolate brown hair was curled and pinned back from her face, giving a clear view of her silver necklace and matching silver dangle earrings. Sarah had a violet corsage tied around her wrist to match her dress.

"So how's to bride-to-be?" Jim asked after he embraced Sarah and gave her a kiss on the cheek.

"Excited mostly, but a little nervous," Sarah answered.

"Oh," Jim responded, feeling a little put off by Siria's anxiety.

"Not to worry, honey," Sarah assured her son, reaching up to fix his tie. Jim and his groomsmen could have worn their military uniforms instead of tuxedos, but Jim wanted this to be more of a wedding than a military mission. "Siria loves you more than anything in the world. I could see it in her eyes. It was the same look you gave her during the graduation. Now, the wedding starts in ten minutes. Get everybody together and seated while I go check on the bride." Sarah rushed back down the hall, which was pretty good for someone in heels.

Jim sighed and looked down as he brushed off anything that was on his tux before he left to go round up his boys.

Soon, the ceremony began. The doctor and the captain were in the front row with a seat saved for Sarah and four seats saved for their children next to Ben and Morph.

Delbert was in a regular suit while Amelia decided to wear something other than her captain uniform. She had on a mint green sleeveless dress with that went down to her knees with cream colored heels.

All the guests were in their seats with theirs necks craned toward the door that the wedding party would enter through in a matter of seconds.

The three little kittens held their flower baskets while their puppy brother gripped on to the pillow carrying the rings like his life depended on it. Behind the quadruplets stood the Torres twins, followed by the best man and maid of honor, and then Sarah and Siria. Since Siria didn't have a parent, or at least a present one, Sarah agreed to have the job of giving away the bride. At least until...

"May I cut in?" asked a familiar gruff voice.

Siria whipped her head around and was about to cry when she saw who it was.

"Silver?! You came to my wedding?!" Siria exclaimed.

"Of course, Siri! I wouldn't miss it for the world!" the cyborg replied. "Now, Mrs. Hawkins, I don't wanna sound rude here but-"

"Of course. Don't give it a second thought! After all, who better to give away the bride than her father."

He had taken a gigantic risk by showing up at a wedding with so many people who could arrest him, but doing his part as a father was worth any consequences that could come from his attendance.

"Oh! I almost forgot!" Silver exclaimed. He reached into his pocket and pulled out the most amazing tiara Siria had ever seen in her life. It was a perfect mix of silver, sapphires, gold, and rubies. Silver placed the tiara on top of Siria's head and then pulled her veil to cover the girl's face.

"But Silver? How were you able to find this? It must have cost you a fortune!" Siria responded.

"I know a guy," Silver answered. "And besides, even if I didn't, I would get it for ya anyway because I would do anything for my little girl."

The father and daughter hugged. Silver hooked his arm around Siria's and took a deep breath as the doors opened.

First entered the quadruplets walking in the shape of a diamond. Torelai led the group in her purple flower girl dress. She had a violet pinned in her short red hair to match the violet petals she tossed out of her white basket.

To Torelai's back right followed Bastet in a dark red dress of the same style and cut as Torelai's, only a different color. A deep red rose lay in Bastet's dark brown hair as she dropped red rose petals from her flower girl basket.

Across from Bastet stood Catrine, the left point of the diamond. She had a dress identical to her sisters', only her's was a pretty blue to match the forget-me-not in her blonde hair and the forget-me-not petals in her basket.

Finishing up the diamond came little Delbert Jr. He had on a little black tuxedo with a silver vest, gold bow tie, and violet boutonnierre. The pillow carrying the rings was white with gold and silver edging.

The guests awwed and cooed at the sight of the toddlers while Jim smiled at his little godchildren. When the quadruplets had been born, the doc had called Jim and Siria at the Academy and asked if they would agree to be the godparents to all four of the children.

Next came Penelope and Antonio.

Penelope's long straight honey-brown hair was styled into a half-up/half-down style with a red rose tied around that section that was pulled up. She had on gold hoop earrings, gold bracelet, and a gold necklace. Her dress was the same deep red color as Bastet's flower girl dress, only Penelope's was a strapless knee-length dress. She finished off the ensemble with sparkly gold heeled sandals. The fiery colors complemented Penelope's sun-kissed skin and latina appearance beautifully. She carried in her free hand a bouquet of red roses with a gold ribbon tied around the stems.

Antonio looked proud to be a groomsman for his friend. His black hair was swept to the side to show off his grin and his tanned skin. He wore his black tux with a gold vest, gold tie, and red rose boutonnierre.

Bastet, Penelope, and Antonio represented the Fire Elementals.

And then entered the maid of honor and best man.

Mary had her shoulder-length wavy blonde hair pulled up like Penelope's except she had a forget-me-not around the ponytail. Her dress was also the same, except the identical shade of blue as Catrine's dress. The watery blue really was the perfect shade to go with Mary's complexion. Her silver hoop earrings, silver necklace, and silver bracelet matched her shining silver heeled sandals and silver ribbon around her bouquet of forget-me-nots.

Nicholas couldn't help but smile as he walked down the aisle with his gorgeous fiancee. He looked pretty sharp himself in his black tuxedo with his silver vest, silver bow tie, and forget-me-not boutonnierre. The silver looked surprisingly good with his dark skin tone.

Catrine, Mary, and Nicholas were the Water Elemental part of the wedding party.

However, people got a little confused when the mother of the groom walked down the aisle by herself. Sarah glanced down and blushed as she approached the altar. Jim felt his heartbeat begin to race in fear, worried that Sarah coming out without Siria meant the worst. But he calmed down when his mother looked up at him and mouthed the words, "She's coming."

Finally came the bride. The guests whispered and gasped about how angelic she looked. Jim's breath hitched up in his throat when he saw how beautiful Siria was... and when he saw whose arm was holding on to her.

Silver?!

The old cyborg was dressed up for the occassion, but not nearly as dressed up as his daughter.

Siria was wearing a white taffeta spaghetti strapped neckline directionally pleated bodice ball gown wedding dress with a silvery gold belt and sparkly white heeled sandals. She had on her necklace (from which her parents' wedding rings no longer hung), her Elemental bands across her forehead, a diamond bracelet that was a graduation gift, and her engagement ring. Siria's veil reached her waist and her blue and red hair was left down in ringlets. Her Elemental marks on her upper arms stood out from the white ensemble, but in a good way.

Jim's brow furrowed in confusion as the sparkle of the tiara caught his eye. When did she get that? A wink from Silver answered Jim's question.

As Silver and Siria reached the end of the aisle, they turned toward each other. Silver grasped the delicate veil covering the bride's face. He lifted the veil, giving Jim and the guests a clear view of Siria's face, from her mismatched silver/gold eyes and her Elemental marks next to them to her gorgeous smile.

Silver kissed the girl's forehead before he gave her away and took a seat next to Sarah.

Siria handed her bouquet of red roses, violets, and forget-me-nots with silver and gold ribbons tied around the stems to Mary and took Jim's hands.

Jim looked incredibly handsome in his black tuxedo with a gold vest, silver bow tie, and violet/rose/forget-me-not boutonnierre. His bluish green eyes shone with excitement, which was easy to see now that his hair didn't cast a shadow over them.

The ceremony proceeded.

Until finally came the most important part... the vows.

"Jim, do you take Miss Siria Pyra Aquellia Silver, to have and to hold, for rich or for poor, in sickness and in health, as long as you both shall live?"

Jim looked straight into Siria's eyes and spoke right from the heart when he answered, "I do."

"Siria, do you take Mister James Pleides Hawkins, to have and to hold, for rich or for poor, in sickness and in health, as long as you both shall live?"

"I do," Siria replied, beaming up at the boy who was minutes away from officially becoming her husband.

"May I have the rings, please?" the priest requested.

Delbert Jr. stood up from his seat and carried over the pillow. Jim picked up Clytie's wedding ring, a silver band with a small diamond in the middle, and Siria picked up Castor's wedding ring, a simple gold band. Delbert Jr. took his cue and sat back down.

Siria wasn't so sure at first about using her parents' rings for her wedding, but she heard their voices in her heart saying that it was the right thing to do. The engaged couple also got the inside of the rings engraved. Siria's now said "My treasure" and Jim's said "My first and only love".

"Now Jim, place this ring on Siria's finger and say 'With this ring, I thee wed.'"

Jim slid the silver band on to Siria's finger and stated, "With this ring, I thee wed."

"And Siria, place this ring on Jim's finger and say 'With this ring, I thee wed.'"

Siria smiled as she put the gold band on Jim's ring finger and recited, "With this ring, I thee wed."

"I now pronounce you husband and wife," the priest proclaimed. "You may now kiss the bride!"

Jim and Siria leaned forward and kissed. Almost every guest in the room could see the love radiating from the happy couple.

After about a minute, the newlyweds turned back toward the guests. Mary returned Siria's bouquet to the bride and picked up her own from its place on the side.

Siria and Jim smiled as they walked back down the aisle and waved at the guests. They were followed by Mary and Nicholas, Penelope and Antonio, the quadruplets, Sarah and Silver, Amelia and Delbert, and then the rest of the guests.

After a few pictures were taken, the guests and the wedding party jumped in their spaceships and took off for the Benbow Inn. Silver, Sarah, Penelope, Antonio, Mary, and Nicholas got in the limo ship, leaving the quadruplets to ride with their parents in the doctor's ship, and the newlywed couple to ride on Jim's solar surfboard.

In less than an hour, the Inn was packed with people, all laughing, dancing, and having fun.

"Attention, everybody!" Ben shouted, catching the attention of the guests immediately. "My name is Ben, best friend of both the bride and the groom, please take a seat and I will introduce the wedding party."

The guests sat down obediently at their tables.

"First, the flower girls: Torelai Doppler!"

Torelai walked out and smiled brightly, waving at all the guests, happy that the spotlight was on her. It was obvious that Torelai would be quite a handful when she grew up with her spunky attitude and love for attention.

"Bastet Doppler!"

Bastet shuffled out, smiling shyly, her cheeks red as she kept her head down. She would clearly be a quiet intellectual in the future.

"And Catrine Doppler!"

Catrine danced out, beaming at the crowd as she waved gracefully. Everyone could tell that little Catrine would be the feminine, kind, and lovely performer of the three girls.

"And now for the ring bearer: Delbert Doppler Jr!"

Delbert Jr. scurried out and ran over to stand next Catrine.

"Next, the bridesmaid and the groomsman: Penelope and Antonio Torres!"

The fiery-colored twins glided out, smiling warmly as they waved and greeted the applauding guests.

"Then we have the maid of honor and the best man, Mary Stone and Nicholas Cambridge!"

The water-themed engaged couple strode into the room, Nicholas giving his fiancee a kiss on the cheek, earning both awws and chuckles from the crowd.

"And finally, the bride and the groom, Mr. and Mrs. Hawkins, Jim and Siria!"

The two of them came into the room and were greeted by cheers. Siria had taken off her veil but had kept the tiara on. Some would say that the tiara in addition to her Elemental bands was too much jewelry, but it just seemed appropriate for Siria.

"Please enjoy your first course while Jimmy and Cici have their first dance as husband and wife. Just a little note, this first dance may seem long because our newlyweds had trouble choosing just one song."

Jim grinned as he looked down at the floor and Siria giggled while the guests all chuckled. He put his hand around her waist while she placed her's on his shoulder, their other hands together with their fingers entwined.

The guitarist of the band started strumming his acoustic instrument gently while the female singer, Mary (italics), picked up the microphone.

Jim and Siria took a deep breath before they locked their eyes on each other.

There I was again tonight

Forcing laughter, faking smiles

Same old tired lonely place

Jim and Siria began dancing from side to side.

Walls of insincerity,

Shifting eyes and vacancy

Vanished when I saw your face

Siria couldn't believe how true those words were.

All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you

Both Jim and Siria's minds flashed back to the day they met.

Your eyes whispered, "Have we met?"

Across the room your silhouette

Starts to make its way to me

The playful conversation starts

Counter all your quick remarks

Like passing notes in secrecy

Another accurate lyric.

And it was enchanting to meet you

All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

The band switched from guitar to piano as they changed to a different song.

How did I get here, I turned around

And there you were

I didn't think twice or rationalize

Cause somehow I knew

That there was more than just chemistry

I mean I knew you were kind of into me

But I figured it's too

Good to be true

Jim did think that when Siria first showed any possible interest in him.

I said pinch me where's the catch this time

Can't find a single cloud in the sky

Help me before I get used to this guy

Siria remembered how scared she was when she started liking Jim for real rather than for her mission.

They say that good things take time

But really great things happen in the blink of an eye

Thought the chances to meet somebody like you were a million to one

I can't believe it, (whoa oh)

You're one in a million

Siria literally was one in a million considering at first she was just a Mixed Elemental, but now she was the last known Elemental alive.

All this time I was looking for love

Trying to make things work

They weren't good enough

Til I thought I'm through

Said I'm done

Then stumbled into the arms of the one

How true that statement was considering that Jim and Siria had fallen on top of each other that first day.

You're making me laugh about the silliest stuff

Say that I'm your diamond in the rough

When I'm mad at you

You come with your velvet touch

Can't believe that I'm so lucky

I have never felt so happy

Every time I see that sparkle in your eyes

A new song started again, this time with a male singer, Nicholas (bold). The drums accompanied the keyboard, followed by the electric guitar.

I am a question to the world,

Not an answer to be heard.

All a moment that's held in your arms.

And what do you think you'd ever say?

I won't listen anyway…

You don't know me,

And I'll never be what you want me to be.

Jim had always liked this song, especially since it seemed to illustrate his life from childhood to teenagerdom.

And what do you think you'd understand?

I'm a boy, no, I'm a man..

You can take me and throw me away.

And how can you learn what's never shown?

Yeah, you stand here on your own.

They don't know me 'cause I'm not here.

Jim and Siria changed positions. Jim put both hands on her waist and Siria moved her arms around his neck.

And I want a moment to be real,

Wanna touch things I don't feel,

Wanna hold on and feel I belong.

And how can the world want me to change,

They're the ones that stay the same.

The don't know me,

'Cause I'm not here.

Siria bit her lip as she glanced down, remembering how Silver originally wanted her to change her beliefs about love when she met Jim.

And you see the things they never see

All you wanted, I could be

Now you know me, and I'm not afraid

And I wanna tell you who I am

Can you help me be a man?

They can't break me

As long as I know who I am

Jim softly lifted Siria's chin up, aligning her eyes with his as pushed a strand of hair out of her face, the emotion in his eyes telling her that it had been hard on him too.

And I want a moment to be real,

Wanna touch things I don't feel,

Wanna hold on and feel I belong.

And how can the world want me to change,

They're the ones that stay the same.

They can't see me,

But I'm still here.

Jim started to tear up in response to the song.

They can't tell me who to be,

'Cause I'm not what they see.

And the world is still sleepin',

While I keep on dreamin' for me.

And their words are just whispers

And lies that I'll never believe.

Siria used one of her hands and gently wiped away the stray tear that had started trickling down Jim's cheek. Jim suddenly felt stronger.

And I want a moment to be real,

Wanna touch things I don't feel,

Wanna hold on and feel I belong.

And how can they say I never change

They're the ones that stay the same.

I'm the one now,

'Cause I'm still here.

Once Siria put her arm back up around Jim, he took one of his hands and cupped her face, thinking how blessed he was to be able to stare at that face and know that she was his for the rest of their lives. He kissed her right on the lips for the rest of that song.

I'm the one,

'Cause I'm still here.

I'm still here.

I'm still here.

I'm still here.

The music changed for one last time to an electric type sound. Mary walked up next to her fiancee, now wearing a wireless mic over her head, singing the first words to the next song (which had always been done as a solo) as a duet (bold italics means together). The engaged singers put their hearts and souls into this song, adding in motions that were like little dance moves.

I still hear your voice, when you sleep next to me.

I still feel your touch in my dreams.

Forgive me my weakness, but I don't know why

Without you it's hard to survive.

Jim winked at his wife before they went jumped apart and dancing in sync.

'Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.

And everytime we kiss I swear I could fly.

Can't you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.

Need you by my side.

'Cause everytime we touch, I feel the static.

And everytime we kiss, I reach for the sky.

Can't you hear my heart beat so...

I can't let you go.

Want you in my life.

The music went lyrical and the guests clapped along in their seats while Siria and Jim started getting a little fancy. They ran back together and Jim started spinning, flipping, and tossing Siria all over the dance floor, all while she was still in her wedding dress. During this part, Nicholas tossed his mic backward and put on a wireless mic, too.

Your arms are my castle, your heart is my sky.

They wipe away tears that I cry.

The good and the bad times, we've been through them all.

You make me rise when I fall.

The guests were in shock at how awesome the two young adults were in their ability to switch from basic slow dancing to, well, this!

'Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.

And everytime we kiss I swear I could fly.

Can't you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.

Need you by my side.

'Cause everytime we touch, I feel the static.

And everytime we kiss, I reach for the sky.

Can't you hear my heart beat so...

I can't let you go.

Want you in my life.

Jim and Siria danced so amazingly that it was incredible. Obviously they had been taking their first dance seriously. They nodded slightly at each other before they started the finale.

'Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.

Jim and Siria clasped their hands together.

And everytime we kiss I swear I could fly.

Jim and Siria locked their arms as Jim lifted her above his head and spun her around for a second.

Can't you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.

Jim quickly lowered Siria to the ground and spun her under his arm.

Need you by my side.

They ended their dance by Jim dipping Siria as a final pose.

The bride and groom took their seats as the crowd roared in applause.

Dinner proceeded for a while before the traditional toasts began.

"First toast will be given by the best man, Nicholas Cambridge," Ben announced.

Nicholas gave a surprised expression before he grapped his glass and stood up to address the guests. "Well, I'm just gonna improvise here, considering that I thought that singing at the reception for free counted as enough and nobody bothered to tell me otherwise." Nicholas gave Jim a pointed look.

Jim gave a fake-innocent shrug.

"I'm just going to run off on a memory of mine. I remember the first day I met Jim and Siria, but Jim came first. It was the first day of our freshman year at the Interstellar Academy and I was cornered by a very flirtatious classmate of ours, Jocelyn Grace. She was throwing herself at me and, not wanting to cause trouble on the first day, I didn't know how to get rid of her. At that moment, Jim was walking down the hallway with his bags so he could move in. He casually told Jocelyn to back off and she instantly latched on to him for the rest of our four years at the Academy. He sacrificed his patience for my sake. We were best friends from that moment on. I saved him from his idiot roommate of freshman year before he and I became roommates sophomore year, later to be joined by Antonio junior year, and he repaid the favor by joining with Siria and the twins in a little matchmaking to get Mary and myself together. I am eternally grateful for your meddling, though, since it got me my beautiful fiancee. Thanks guys!" Nicholas sat back down at the table.

"Next up we have the maid of honor, Mary Stone."

Mary stepped up from her seat to the clapping of the guests.

"My first memory of Siria is pretty similar to Nick's, but I wasn't quite so sure about her at first, which is a huge shocker to most people who know how close the two of us are now. She and I were roommates from the start, but I was really shy at the time and, as embarassing it is to admit it, I was scared by her Elemental marks and hair. I thought she was a punk who had dyed hair and tattoos. Siria would smile at me and seemed friendly, but every time she would come into the room, I would make up an excuse and rush out. It took me a week to finally talk to her. I had been practicing one of my songs for a family gathering that I was going to be performing at. Siria had been outside the door and heard me singing. She came into the room and told me how good I was. I felt flattered and that was when we finally shared formal introductions. She could tell I was curious about her, well, abnormalities. Siria told me her story, all the way from the pirate attack on Elementia up to her journey to Treasure Planet. I was enthralled. I hung on to her every word. We learned a ton from each other. I taught her how to sing and connect with the grace of her Water Elemental side, and she taught me how to be more outgoing and how to stand up for myself. If it wasn't for that, I would not have been able to survive spending four years with Jocelyn, or able to adjust when Penelope became our roommate junior year, or find the courage to approach the boy I liked. I'm forever thankful to you two, and I'm so happy for you. I love you, both!"

"Thank you, Nicky and Mary." The guests clapped. Silver then walked up and whispered something in Ben's ear, or rather the side of his metal head. "It seems like we have a last-minute toast by John Silver, the adoptive father of the bride."

Silver picked up his glass and turned to the main table to face his two favorite kids in the galaxy. "Jimbo, Siri, I'm gonna keep this short, 'cause I know if I try ta go too long, I might actually get emotional, so here't goes. Siri, I've known, loved, and trained ya for over ten years, and I knew you would come ta be an incredible woman someday. Jimbo, I wasn't lyin' when I said that you would rise ta greatness." Silver paused, his voice getting tight as he tried to cover up his crying. "Oh great! I'm gettin' emotional, so I'm gonna wrap this up. I wish I could've been there for every big moment in each of your lives, 'specially these past few years. But I promise ta be there for each and every one in the future... that is, if I don't get arrested first. But this promise is one I don't plan on breakin'."

Siria stood up from her seat and ran over to hug her father. She murmured to him, "As long as I'm a captain of this galaxy, you will never be arrested by my crew."

Ben sniffled as he choked out a response through his tears. "That - that was so beautiful! Now you may all - enjoy the rest of your dinner."

Soon dinner was finished and it was time for the groom to dance with his mother and the bride with her father. Once again, Jim and Siria couldn't pick between more than one song, so it was extended.

Mary and Nicholas picked up their mics as the song started.

You tuck me in,

Turn out the light

kept me safe and sound at night

little girls depend on things like that

Even though the song was about and orignally sung by a girl and her father, it applied to Jim and Sarah's life, too.

Brushed my teeth and combed my hair

had to drive me everywhere

you were always there when I looked back

They were always there, every time Jim got into trouble with the law and every time Siria missed her birth parents.

You had to do it all alone

Make a living, make a home

Must have been as hard as it could be

Both Sarah and Silver pretty much had to raise their children alone, so they did know how hard it was.

And when I couldn't sleep at night

Scared things wouldn't turn out right

you would hold my hand and sing to me

Well Sarah and Silver never really sang, but that was beside the point.

Caterpillar in the tree, how you wonder who you'll be

can't go far but you can always dream

Wish you may and wish you might

Don't you worry, hold on tight.

I promise you there will come a day

Butterfly fly away

However, Clytie used to sing a lullaby to Siria when she couldn't sleep, a song that Siria still carried in her heart and planned to sing to her children one day.

Turned around and you were there

The two of us made quite a pair

Daddy's little girl was here at last

Looked away and back again

Suddenly a year was ten

Don't know how it got so far so fast

That was what it seemed like to Silver. He just couldn't believe his little girl was a married adult now when it felt like he had found her on Elementia just last year.

And yes dear, you don't understand

It's not anything we planned

Kind of makes you think it's meant to be (it's a destiny)

I always knew the day would come

You'd stop crawling, start to run

Beautiful as beautiful can be

It really wasn't Silver's plan to find his Siri, just like it wasn't Sarah's plan to have Jim's father and her husband abandon them, but Jim and Siria still grew up to be wonderful young adults.

Caterpillar in the tree

How you wonder who you'll be

Can't go far but you can always dream

Wish you may and wish you might

Don't you worry, hold on tight

I promise you there will come a day

Butterfly fly away

That day did come. It was the day that Sarah let Jim go out to look for Treasure Planet and the day Silver left Siria with Jim.

Butterfly fly away (butterfly fly away)

Got your wings, now you can't stay

Take those dreams and make them all come true

Those dreams did come true. First their dreams to become important and then their dreams to fall in love.

Butterfly fly away (butterfly fly away)

You've been waiting for this day

All along you've known just what to do

Siria did know just what to do. She just remembered what her parents had told her when her powers came in and never broke her word to them.

Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly

Butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away (I hope you find your way and all the things you wish for, love and care about)

Butterfly fly away (oh, won't you fly away)

Butterfly fly away (oh, won't you fly away)

Butterfly fly away

That part of the song ended and gave way to the other part, written by the same father/daughter singers, but still sung by Mary and Nicholas. The drums started up.

I didn't want to listen to what you were saying

I thought that I knew all I need to know

I didn't realize that somewhere inside me

I knew you were right but I couldn't say so

I can take care of myself

You taught me well

Sarah did teach Jim well. He may have gone through a rough spot during his teenage years, but he was still a good kid at heart.

I learned from you

That I do not crumble

I learned that strength is something you choose

All of the reasons to keep on believing

There is no question that's a lesson

I learned from you

Silver did train Siria not to break, and so many other things that led to her excellence at the Academy.

We always don't agree on what is the best way

To get to a place that we're going from here

But I can really trust you and give you the distance

To make your decisions without any fear

I'm grateful for all the times

You opened my eyes

Both parents knew they could trust their kids, and Sarah and Silver learned just as much from the young adults as Jim and Siria did from the grown-ups.

I learned from you

That I do not crumble

I learned that strength is something you choose

All of the reasons to keep on believing

There is no question that's a lesson

I learned from you

Jim learned how to not crumble, too, all thanks to his mom. She helped him through the time when his father left.

You taught me to stand on my own

And I thank you for that it saved me it made me

And now that I'm looking back I can say

The two couples danced around each other, recalling numerous memories from listening to the song.

I learned from you

That I do not crumble

I learned that strength is something you choose

All of the reasons to keep on believing

There is no question that's a lesson

I learned from you

I learned that strength is something you choose

All of the reasons to keep on believing

There is no question that's a lesson

I learned from you

I learned from you

Silver spun Siria under his arm while Jim gave Sarah a kiss on the cheek. The crowd cheered again while some of the guests cried. Nicholas embraced Mary, thinking how they had learned a few things from the song from each other rather than their parents.

The reception went on until midnight. After the special songs, the band played music with pre-recorded vocals so Mary and Nicholas could have fun.

When the time came for the bride to toss her bouquet, Mary was the one who caught it. She and her fiancee kissed while the guests laughed at the fact that the maid of honor and the best man were already going to be the next couple to get married. Their wedding was set for that December, five and a half months away.

The quadruplets stayed up long enough for the wedding cake, but then dozed off after that. The cake was incredible. It was three tiered with white icing. The first layer had a reddish orange flame pattern with gold edging, the second with bluish green water pattern with silver edging, and the top was purple with gold and silver edging. Siria hated that everything seemed to revolve around her, but Jim had insisted. He felt that Siria deserved a little Elemental attention considering she was the last one.

Finally, everybody went home to rest from the excitement of the day. Siria and Jim went to bed for their first time, now that they were officially husband and wife, and nothing was greater than their love.

That's the wedding. Their first child is next. And I apologize to those of you who wanted me to go into details on their...wedding activities. But that is just not my thing. You better review on this chapter because it took me a week to write. Oh, and the songs are Enchanted by Taylor Swift, One in a Million by Hannah Montana, I'm Still Here by John Rzeznik, Everytime We Touch by Cascada, Butterfly Fly Away by Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus, and I Learned From You by Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus.
