Love Starts in the Opposite Direction

Chapter 25

Normal POV(Lucy's POV)

Dear heavens, today is finally our wedding. I really contain my excitement though I feel nervous at the same time too. I thought I would be fine since me and Natsu are already married on papers so it's just that now, we decided to hold a ceremony to publicly inform our marriage. I was so wrong. My heart can't stop beating so fast right now.

We were currently in one of the rooms in the church as I got ready for my wedding ceremony. I slipped into my wedding gown and after making sure it fits me perfectly, I took a step out from the changing room and there stood my 3 closest ladies, staring at me in awe and even on the verge of tears.

"Oh my god Lu-chan, you look so gorgeous in it!" Levy exclaimed as she rubbed her eyes, trying to contain her tears.

"Juvia agrees too!"

"Oh girls, why are you crying? Please don't cry."

"Lucy, I think you should take a look at yourself in the mirror." Mirajane pointed out.

I obliged to her and decided to take a good look at myself in the mirror and I don't blame my girls for crying. I was even on the verge of tears. I've never felt so beautiful before and I can't wait for Natsu to see me in this.

I smiled and nodded to Mirajane before making my way to my two bridesmaids to give them a hug.

"Alright girls, enough… We need to get ready."

"Lu-chan!"

"Lucy!"

Both girls shouted my name at the same time as they jumped at me and hugged me. I couldn't help but to giggle as my girls were so cute.

"Alright girls, sorry to burst your bubble but we need to get the bride ready for her moment." Mirajane spoke as she came towards us. "We need to make Lucy more splendid than she already is."

Juvia and Levy broke the hug from me to face Mirajane. They nodded at her before they looked at me.

"She's right. Sorry for being for emotional Lu-chan." Levy said as she held my hands.

"Juvia and Levy is just so happy for you." Juvia said as she stood beside Levy.

"Thank you girls…" I nodded and smiled at them though my eyes were glistened with tears. I managed to remove my hand from Levy's grasp as I brought it up to rub my eyes. I turned around and look at Mirajane.

"Please make me a beautiful bride, Mira."

Mira nodded and smiled as she pulled out the chair from the dresser, signaling me to take a seat as she prepare me for my big moment.


Natsu's POV

Today my suit was a bit more than how I usually wear. Usually the normal piece suit was just a shirt, pants and blazer right? This time, my wedding suit was black pants, a white shirt, a brown VEST, and a black blazer for me. Courtesy to the cobra guy who I got to hand it to him, have taste.

Right now, I was adjusting my bowtie as I stood in front of the mirror. It's actually much simpler to wear than a tie but I don't understand why I'm having difficulty to wear it.

"Yo, Natsu." Gray greeted me as I saw from the mirror that he and Gajeel entered the room. Yeah, my bestmen and I were given a room in the church to get ready also.

"Hey guys." I greeted back without looking at them, still frustrated with my bowtie.

"What the hell are you doing?" Gajeel commented as he took a seat beside the door.

"Argh, this is super frustrating." I yanked the bowtie away from my collar and threw it on the dresser table. "I can't even wear such a simple thing."

"Oi, oi, oi, chill flame brains. You get hot headed too fast for your own good some times." Gray said as he walked over.

"I'm getting married and I can't get a simple thing done!"

Gray grabbed my shoulders and made me face him, eye to eye. "Oi, flame brains. Will you just chill? Geez, and I thought you finally got smarter since you're getting married." Gray grabbed the bowtie and placed it around my collar.

"We're here for you bozo. You can ask us for help if you need to." Gray continued as he helped me to wear my bowtie for me.

"Chill Natsu, I know you're stress and nervous but we got your back." Gajeel commented before giving me a thumbs up.

I looked at him before I looked back at Gray. They were right. I chose them as my bestmen for a reason. They are going to be my wall of support as I stand at the pedestal and wait for Lucy.

I think Gray was done fixing my bowtie because he grabbed my shoulders and spun me around to face the mirror. "You're ready now."

And Gray was right. He fixed the bowtie perfectly and now I looked like a man ready to be wedded. "Thanks guys…" Gray and Gajeel just smirked as a form of reply to my thanks to them.

I saw Gajeel was checking the time before he stood up."Natsu, it's time." I looked at Gray before I looked back at Gajeel, nodding as to inform them I was ready.


Normal POV (Lucy's POV)

I now stood behind the main church doors. I could see from the window that the crowd has gathered and were waiting for me to arrive. I was honestly panicking. I was trying to find Natsu to see how he was doing but was unable to. I'm supposed to come out from here and walked down the aisle to the pedestal that's by the big tree.

I didn't have any flower girls. My dad and bridesmaid will be the only ones walking along with me. Mirajane already went to find her brother and settled a seat with him at the front.

"Lucy." I turned around and my dad placed a velvet box on my palm. "Remember I told you that I will get the ring for Natsu?" I nodded so that my dad took that an indication to continue.

"This is the ring that your mother gave during the exchange of vows." I was star struck. "It will be an honor that Natsu can have it-"

"No dad… I can't." I gripped onto the box before continuing. "This is the only thing you have of Mom. I can't."

My dad placed his hand on my right shoulder. "Your mother will be proud." And that just got my tears to start brimming at the corner of my eyes. I nodded and my dad brought me in for a hug.

"I miss her so much dad! How I wish she's here with you to witness my wedding." I was controlling my tears as I hugged my dad back. I didn't want to ruin Mirajane's beautiful work on me.

"I miss her too dear but I know she's watching us from above now." My dad said as he broke the hug. "Now let's get out there and get you wedded." I took a deep breath before nodding and smiling to him.

I turned around and I saw my girls were smiling, bouquet of flowers in their hands as they waited for my cue.

"I'm ready girls." I think my girls had some way to communicate with the band because they started to play the music and the doors swung opened. I locked my elbows with my dad's, bouquet in my hands as well as we started to walk down the aisle. My bridesmaid leading the way while my dress sweep the floor. Though my face was covered by the veil, I could see who was there.

Ezra, Loki, Cana, Macao, Wakaba, Elfman, Mirajane, Gramps and everyone else who helped us to make this wedding ceremony a successful one. I saw my bridesmaids walking to the left clearing the view in front of me and I could see the pedestal now. I have reached my destination so my dad gave me a peck on the forehead before handing me over to Natsu.

"Please take care of her Natsu." I heard my dad said to him before he went to take a seat. I saw Natsu nodding his head as he grabbed my hand and walked towards the pastor. Well before that, I quickly handed over my bouquet of flowers to my girls. The pastor started to preach and I was gripping my hands tightly together, hoping my nervousness will seep away.

"Luce, you're beautiful." Natsu whispered.

"Natsu, we're supposed to stay silent." I whispered back.

"How can I? This type of speech is boring to hear and I just want to get under that dress of yours." I couldn't help but to stifle a giggle because I had to agree with Natsu. Not about getting under my dress but that such preaches actually bores me. That's my husband for you people.

We didn't know we were in our own world that the pastor had to clear his throat to get our attention back to look at him.

"Your vow, sir?"

"Oh yes." Natsu faced me as he dug into his pocket for what I believe my ring because after finding it, he grabbed my left hand.

"I, Natsu Dragneel, take thee, Lucy Heartfillia, to be my lawful wedded Wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part."

After Natsu put the ring on, I couldn't help but realized that it was my mother's so I quickly turned around to look at my dad and he just nodded and smile at me. I was so touched by their actions that I could feel my tears streaming down my face but still I had to make my vow.

"I, Lucy Heartfillia, take thee, Natsu Dragneel, to be my lawful wedded Husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part."

I put dad's ring on Natsu's finger and that is when the pastor announced.

"Now, I pronounce you Man and Wife. You may kiss the bride." Natsu flipped my veil open and I think he noticed the trail of tears that he chucked before kissing me.

I could feel everyone stood up and cheered as they clapped their hands and whistled for us. Natsu and I broke the kiss and we looked at everyone. I couldn't stop smiling and laughing as I held onto Natsu's arms. My happiness within me was overflowing. Levi handed me back my bouquet of flowers which it was an indication for us to walk out.

We walked down the aisle hand in hand but I got Natsu to stop along with me at a certain point so that I could turn around and throw my bouquet of flowers. It was time for the feast but Natsu hinted that he wanted some alone time first so we decided to walk back and rest at one of the church's room instead.

"So Natsu, how did you get my mother's ring?" I asked once we closed the door behind us.

"I talked to your dad."

"Why?"

"Because I want to build that family with you…" Natsu said as he stood in front of me. "Like how your dad and mother did." Natsu continued as he held my face in his hands. "I know you miss and love your mother very much so I hope this will give you the strength to make a family with me, Luce."

I could feel tears were streaming down my cheeks even though Natsu's hands were in the way. I cover his hands over mine and shouted. "I love you Natsu, I love you so much!"

"I love you too." Natsu kissed me on my lips like there was no tomorrow. Though we started to fall in love with each other in the opposite direction, it doesn't matter now because finally, we belonged to each other.

THE END.
