Chapter 5.11

Chapter 5.11 – And so they finally wedded

Saffron continued to be a science geek, who was no doubt going to grow up to become a doctor or a surgeon, much to her parents delight. Screenshot-4221Peach, who was an avid animal lover and no real talents, had managed to talk her parents into getting her a horse, whom she named Milo.  She hoped to train him up to win lots of races and show-jumping competitions so she could make lots of money.Screenshot-4217Shame he did not share her dreams and ambitions.Screenshot-4219‘Ow.’Screenshot-4220Once Peach had near enough recovered from her spinal injuries, Mika and Jameson decided it was time to get married, so organised a lovely late spring wedding.  Mika went for the lovely toilet roll cover look, which she managed to pull off fairly well.Screenshot-4230Being the youngest of the children, poor Frangelico and Cointreau were subjected to wearing matching bridesmaid dresses.Screenshot-4238Screenshot-4239As expected, a lot of familiar faces showed up to the wedding ceremony, including Murphy who was now grey and old.  Prince/King Joffrey from Game of Thrones also made an appearance.  Screenshot-4246Mika and Jameson stood patiently under the arch of tradition, waiting for every to get outside, before they said their vows and what not.Screenshot-4247‘Will you marry me, under the knowledge that we will eventually stop having woohoo altogether and I’ll have to resort to self-woohooing in the shower every morning?’ Jameson asked, a serious look gleaming in his adoring eyes.Screenshot-4248‘Sounds good to me!’ Mika responded, cupping her hands with his.Screenshot-4252And with that, they smooched and stuff, until everyone stopped cheering and throwing confetti at them.Screenshot-4257Of course, not everyone was happy.  Nina, who had only happened to be passing by the house on her bi-weekly run, fell into a state of total dismay when she realised that the celebrations going on in the garden were for Mika’s and Jameson’s marriage.  Screenshot-4259Nina then knew for certain that she had well and truly blown her chance with getting together with Jameson.  Still, she hung around, in hope she would be able to get her hands on a slice of wedding cake.Screenshot-4255‘Bitch ain’t getting any cake,’ thought Mika after clocking onto Nina’s presence.Screenshot-4264She then proceeded to announce to the guests that she would ensure most of them would receive a slice of cake; putting lots of emphasis on the word most.Screenshot-4266Screenshot-4267As the guests queued up for their cakey noms, Earl practiced his duck-face expression for the wedding photographer, whilst Peach peered over unimpressed at their Uncle Murphy, who was drunkenly doing the can-can by the edge of the pool, already drunk on the cocktails Tremayne had made.Screenshot-4276Alas, Jameson and Mika were finally man and wife, after year of putting it off.  That very night, they practiced the start of celibacy by having woohoo many times before realising they were doing it all wrong.  Screenshot-4313They would master things one day, as do most couples approaching their fifties.

True, Jameson (Part 3)

True, Jameson (Part 3)

As soon as the snow had cleared, I was practicing my acrobatic moves as often as I could.  I had several gigs planned, even a couple scheduled in back at Sunlit Tides, so I was determined to keep my skills up scratch in hope I would start making a name for myself.Screenshot-2878I even set up my own blog to promote myself, with the help of Amaretto.   Of course, I  couldn’t resist taking and posting up a few cheeky self-portraits.Screenshot-2991Despite throwing myself into all these distractions, I couldn’t help but think about Mika.  I still wasn’t sure what was happening between us.  We were talking and stuff, but I knew I couldn’t go on pretending that I still didn’t have feelings for her.Screenshot-2882A few days later, I received a call from Steve inviting me to a get together at the town’s hottest nightclub.   I knew what that meant; more pulling girls and comparing them to Mika, that’s why I told Steve that I wasn’t in the mood to go party.

‘Dude, Mika is coming too!’ Steve revealed.Screenshot-2830Well, that changed everything.  Excitement raced through as I ran full pelt, cutting across the University campus so I could reach my destination quicker.Screenshot-2839As my feet hammered against the paving stones, I spied a very familiar girl walking towards me with an inquisitive look on her face.Screenshot-2841I only realised it was Malibu when we were barely feet apart.  Shouting a quick greeting, I had no plans to stop until Malibu demanded to know where I was heading to.  Screenshot-2845Pausing quickly, I gave her the simple answer before I continued on my way to the awaiting dance floor, and of course my darling Mika.Screenshot-2843Stepping into the venue, disappointment instantly set in my stomach when I was greeted to a near enough empty room, besides a couple of cougars (who I instantly avoided making contact with).  With a pout, I basked in my sorrow for a few moments before I shuffled off to the bar, plotting revenge on Steve for his obvious prank.Screenshot-2856Cocktail in hand, I wondered if I was fated to live a loveless existence, or at least end up marrying some boring lass I had nothing in common with and have semi-decent looking children.  The latter didn’t seem too bad.Screenshot-2862‘Delicious!’ A gentle voice chirped above the music.  Spinning around, my heart jumped a beat.  There stood Mika with the exact same cocktail clasped in her hand with her lips curled up into a content smile. Screenshot-2860‘That sneaky bastard,’ my thoughts chuckled, realising that this must have been Steve’s intention all along to get me all alone with Mika.

‘What’s delicious; me or the drink?’ I tried my best to joke, although I’m sure Mika only giggled out of politeness.  Screenshot-2865We stayed at the bar for quite some time, drinking and discussing memories of when we had first started dating and how awesome things had been.  Our conversation growing more risque between every drink we consumed.

‘I miss being with you,’ Mika eventually confessed, arms wrapping around my shoulders.  Placing my hands on her waist, I lent forwards to catch her lips with my own.Screenshot-2863I’d never rushed home so quickly in my life.  Moments after flying through my bedroom door we were on the bed, springs creaking and headboard shaking.  My heart was still racing even afterwards when we were cuddled up together, wondering why we had even split up in the first place. Screenshot-2954Even when Mika got up to use the bathroom, I was unable to prevent myself from grinning.Screenshot-2963And, that morning, before Mika has awoken, I couldn’t resist doing a little celebratory dance in the fitness room.Screenshot-3029Screenshot-3030After that I vowed never to look back and to do all I could to keep Mika happy and by my side.
