Chapter 303: A Wedding surmountable to all in bliss for a Burke and Rhapsody.

(Leslie and Blossom’s Spur of the moment Wedding- Take to the skies of Teenage Wedding bliss)

Blossom: *Voice-over* Previously on the Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z!…

“Inside the secret area of home…

On the Bridge…?

Cid: *Walking into the Bridge* Hu desa! Ku, ku ku!

Brother: Drnaa sehidac mavd! (Three minutes left!)

Cid: Rinno, rinno! Oui ryja uha sehida! (Hurry, hurry! You have one minute!)

The fighters and Guardians then arrive on Bridge…

Tidus: *Walking over near Cid* Where’s Yuna?

Serena: You tell us where Yuna is right now. Where are you keeping her?

Cid: Ajanouha uh puynt? (Everyone on board?)

Al Bhed: Ajanouha ymeja!

Tidus: I said, where is she? *Grabbing Cid* Answer me! Answer me, Damn you!

Raven: You better answer us and tell where Yuna is before we come loose. We have been looking all through the desert and through home here for her. Haven’t found her. So either she’s really gone and we don’t know it quite yet or you’ve got her here somewhere.

Paul: Don’t test us. We’re not in a very chipper mood as we just ripped our hearts out over hearing something that we should have been told from the beginning but haven’t till just a moment ago.

Cid: What’ll you do when you find her, eh?

Tidus: I didn’t know anything about what a summoner is supposed to do. And I told her all those things without even knowing. I’ve got to tell her. I’ve got to tell her I’m sorry!

Serena: We told her all about our home back in the city of Metropolis Kansas. Told her all those things without even stopping to ask about what it was that she was meant to be doing… We’ve got to tell her… We need to tell her that we’re sorry.

Cid: Wait a Minute… Metropolis Kansas?! *Turning to look at Serena* You not pulling this Al Bhed’s mind apart with that… are you? You from there?

Raven: Yes. We are. Why?

Cid: Well… color me with a mind blower. How did you all get to Spira to begin with?

Spencer: Through a Portal sir.

Cid: A Portal, eh?

Clint: That’s right Sir. Cid, We came through a portal. An abnormality in the space-time continuum.

Cid: And those Yevon Clods Think that Machina is bad. Try a Portal. You guys came through it? Was it just you young kids and 3 grown men?

Alvin: Not Quite all… there are others, Sir.

Cid: You don’t say. You’ll have to tell me all about it as soon as get ourselves out of here. *Looking at Tidus and Serena* That’s it? You’re gonna tell her you’re sorry? And then you just drag her to Zanarkand and make her fight Sin, huh? You’re all the same — let the summoner die so we can live in peace! *Throws Tidus to the deck and Thumps Serena on the head*

Tidus: No! I’m not gonna let Yuna die! 

Serena: Neither are we. We are not gonna let Yuna bite the dust. We won’t allow it.

Cid: Hah! Words! Show me action!

Tidus: I’m telling you, she won’t die!

Serena: And i mean what i said…

Sapphire: Yuna is considered to be a part of the clan here… we’d protect her with our lives.

Theodore: That’s right. We would. No matter what.

Penny: We Swear on it. We Won’t allow for Yuna to Die!

Cid: Boy, Young Kids… don’t forget those words, ’cause if you do…I’m gonna make you regret it.

Tidus: I won’t. So… You know where she is?

Zoey: Anything?

Cid: ‘Course not. That’s why we’re gonna look! Using this airship!

Wakka: A-Airship?

Paul: Air Ship?!

Amy: Air SHIP?!

Sora: Did he just say Air Ship? *Stammering and stuttering in shock* You m-m-mean that w-w-w-we’re in a a-a-a-air s-s-s-s-ship?

Carly: I think that he did say that. He said it and now… we’re here. We’re in a Air ship.

Sora: Oh god…

Carly: Aren’t we scared of Air Ships?

Sora: I don’t know. We’ve never been on one…

Carly: Well… we’re on one now.

Suddenly the platform shook and let off a Jolt…

Annie: *Falling back and hitting the floor* Whoa!

Amy: *Tumbling over* Whoa! Ouch!

Zoey: *Pausing and Afraid to move* Uh… Are we really… in an Airship?

Avery: I do believe that we are…

Brother: Vydran! Nayto du ku!

Cid: Oaaryy! Y vmekrd 1000 oaync ujantia! (Yeehaa! A flight 1000 years overdue!)

The hangar opened up and sand came in through as the door leading to the outside opened up wide. The Air Ship fired up and started to rise on up… going up out of the hangar. rising from the hangar that happened to be underground from the Al Bhed homestead…

Brother: *Piloting and looking back a second* Whoa! It moves!

Cid: *Within a few steps away from Brother* Risk big, win big!

Brother: Fruy! Ed vmeac! (Whoa! It flies!)

Cid: Haqd, fa ica dryd! (Next, we use that!)

Brother: *Glumly* Frydajan oui cyo.

A second Later…

Brother: *Starting off* Ieyui

Cid: *Turning to face the others while Joining in* Nobomeno *in Unison with the other Al Bhed*

Renmiri

Yojuyogo

Hasatekanae

Kutamae

Brother and several of the crewmembers of the ship sing out the “Hymn of the fayth” in unison as a Dirge…

Wakka: What’s goin’ on?

Sora: What’re you gonna do?

Carly: Is something gonna happen?

Spencer: *Walking over to Rikku and Standing by her* Rikku, What’s happening now?

Rikku: We’re…we’re going to blow up our Home.

Spencer: *Gasps* What?! Huh?! Are you kidding? But… that’s your home. the place that you and your people have considered home. Why would you destroy the thing or place that you all created and made to shelter you and keep upon you with safety and safe harbor?

Cid: It’s infested with Fiends. It has to be done Kiddo. It’s for the best. No telling if those Guado are the ones that were still sending in fiends to take us down… But We can’t let those Fiends bust loose. We must blow up our home.

Lulu: How?

Cid: With one of the forbidden machina! *Commanding Brother to fire the missiles* Nayto? Vena!

Serena: *Feeling the Speed* Come on firestorm… Come and chase us. 6,000 pounds of metal with the Knack for flyin’ You know that you want us…

Sapphire: Serena, This is no pleasure. This is a race to escape that blast. We have to outrun the blast.

Amy: *Holding on to the railing* Everyone… Hold on tight!

Zoey: Don’t worry… We are.

Clint: This is gonna be a high adrenaline rush…

Paul: Oh god… Oh god… *Holding on to the rails*

Serena: Oh god… It’s chasing us. We’re in for it now.

Theodore: We better ride that storm. Beat it before it gets us…

Spencer: *Feeling the heat* Blizzard… Anyone. I am overheating here… Not good. Not Good. *Burning up* AHHHHHH!”

“Elizabeth: Mr. Rhapsody… Curtis… Uh… I think that we got a mutual interest between us.

inday-1552

Curtis: I believe that we do. The fact that we both have a daughter in Chilton. You with Leslie… Me with my daughter Blossom.

Elizabeth: Yeah. But that isn’t the only thing that we have for a mutual interest. It’s actually more than mutual. I’m certain that you are aware of the deep relationship that’s between your daughter Blossom and My daughter Leslie. The romantic relationship that is between them.

Curtis: I wouldn’t really know as Blossom tends to keep a bit of that under the radar. She doesn’t divulge that kind of detail to me. I never ask as i figure… it’s safe. *Grins with a raised eyebrow* Unless you happen to know something more that i don’t. Why?

Elizabeth: I happen to know of it because the signs are there. I can’t begin to believe as to how you weren’t able to catch on to the close attachment between the two of them. Leslie and Blossom have been seen kissing each other on the lips. Passionately. Plus… i overheard them talking once about becoming Intimately involved with each other. Not to say that they have done so… or that they haven’t. However…

Curtis: I really hope that you’re not saying what i think it is that you’re saying.

Elizabeth: I’m afraid so. Blossom and Leslie are Lesbians. The way that they sometimes touch each other. Subtle but enough to give off the alarm that they have something going on between the two of them.

inday-1247

Curtis: *Sighs* I can’t believe this. My darling Princess. *Moans* What is she doing to herself? Leslie’s turned my darling girl into a lesbi. She’s turned my daughter into a lesbian. That’s not what my daughter is about. She’s been known as the most direct. Straight. Romantic to guys. Not to girls. Elizabeth, how could you let your daughter run rampant on the drive for being a lesbian? *Shaking his head* I just want my daughter to be happy. I want her to be happy and full of cheer. But also safe. Not like this.

Elizabeth A. Burke
Elizabeth A. Burke

Elizabeth: *Scoffs* Curtis, I do hope that you’re not trying to pin me as a negligent parent for the fact that my daughter is Lesbian. I didn’t raise her that way. But i am not about to forbid her… the object of her heart. You shouldn’t forbid your’s either. Granted that it’s not the way for our girls to act. I am certain that Blossom’s mother and My Husband wouldn’t want this for them either. However… If this is what truly makes them happy and completes them… I should suggest that we support it and be all for their happiness. Which brings me to ask…

Curtis: Ask what?

Elizabeth: I think that they should be wed. Right away. or as soon as possible.

Curtis: You think that they should be married? A couple of 15-16 year old girls… who are without careers. No place of their own. *Looking over at the group* Okay. *Sighs; Thinking* Maybe we can throw an internal Wedding. Book a small chapel or something and have it set to where only immediate family and close allies and friends are to attend. Nothing too big. Just a casual Wedding. But under the radar of the major population. Something like this is not for the entire town to know about. Plus… that way… if the mean posse from Chilton Like Paris Gellar and That boy Tristan try to sneak a show… There won’t be anything for them to see.

Elizabeth: I agree. But in order to do it… We’re gonna need to do it right away. Where can we hold it?

Curtis: *Thinking* Hmm… I think that i might know of a place that we can hold it where the mean chilton kids won’t catch on to it.

Elizabeth: Where?

Curtis: One of the places that our family has been known to visit numerous times in the past. But you have to keep it secret. This place is not for the opened public to catch on to.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Curtis then presses a Button and gets a hold of an Ally.

Rin
Rin

Rin: Oac? [Rin] rana.

Curtis: Rin? *On the phone* It’s Curtis… Do you have a way to get a hold of Cid and the Airship?

Rin: [Curtis], e tu rybbah du veht drec naymmo ybbymmehk dryd oui’t lymm yht ycg sa cilr y drehk yc dryd yht hud du duilr pycac. Huha uv ic ryja raynt vnus oui kioc eh y frema yht huf… drec? ([Curtis], i do happen to find this really appalling that you’d call and ask me such a thing as that and not to touch bases. None of us have heard from you guys in a while and now… this?)

Curtis: Look… Rin. I know that i haven’t kept in touch with you guys. Nor had the others. But we figured that it would be best and we thought that you’d all like for it to be that way for a while. That’s why. We weren’t ignoring.

Rin: *Understanding* Famm… Ed fuimt ryja paah hela du rayn vnus oui kioc suna. Fa tuh’d rayn silr vnus [Rikku] yht cra ec uha uv ic. (Well… It would have been nice to hear from you guys more. We don’t hear much from [Rikku] and she is one of us.)

Curtis: Most of us had been pretty busy for a while. Things had changed a bit. But none of us forgot about any of you.

Rin: Very well. Apology is accepted. What do you need?

Curtis: We need to get a hold of Cid.

Rin: Cid’s mainly sticking to being an Auto Mechanic. But he still has use of the Airship.

Curtis: See if you can get a hold of him and get him to issue a special rendezvous for two people.

Rin: Who? You and your other half?

Curtis: Ha ha ha ha! That’d be something to remember. But not quite. Try… My daughter Blossom and her friend or soon to be better half… Leslie Burke.

Rin: Huh?! Leslie Burke… You wouldn’t be talking about the same girl who runs a Stadium but was once believed to be this Mob girl known to be Rita the Hammer… would you?

Curtis: That’s the same one. But whatever indiscretions that Leslie might have committed back then… she’s made up for them. Done so every day since she broke from the Mob. She built the Stadium. With all her friends helping too. She gave back to the city. She paid her price. But she and my daughter are in dire romance. Love. And as much as my convictions are trying to tell me to condemn the unity between them and insist that they revere straight. Their hearts are becoming one. Their fate is entwined. I can’t deem to deny them the right to love.

Rin: I see. I’ll give him a call and see what he can do.

Curtis: Thanks.”

Alex: This is the underground Bunker…

Spencer: Rikku’s Brother… and a hefty building team. at least 25 people along with him built this hanger and constructed for there to be at least 70,000 Gigawatts of power flowing through here.

Rikku: My Brother has been working hard and has also been seeking to ensure that everything was intact. Things should be ready in a moment. All doors here are automatic. So it’ll open once it’s time.

Luzzu: The Wedding’s gonna be short lived if we don’t get moving. Time is unfortunately not slowing.

Nicole: Is this really Underground?

Sora: It is. But i think we know what’s behind this door.

Rikku L. Rhapsody: *Overhearing and curious* What do you mean? What’s behind this door?

Kimahri: Al-Bhed Airship. Fahrenheit.

Sheriff Adams: *Jumps in a start* Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat. Who said that?

Blossom: Calm down, Sheriff. That was just our good friend Kimahri. He said it.

While waiting for the doors to open…

Tex Charleston and Samuel Marlborough took a step out and got to the side where they wouldn’t be seen and had a light…

Tex: *Smoking* The secret wedding is gonna be rather special.

Samuel: It is. *Smoking* My only thing is that… how come that it had to be held here… and on some special transport. What’s behind those doors anyway?

Tex: I haven’t any idea as to what it is that’s behind those doors. However… I do believe that we won’t be able to sneak off for a while. not that we feel as though we should.

Samuel: A couple of people are getting wed.

Tex: Yeah. *Looking at all the people* We’re all here to witness it. Watching it and seeing it go on.

Of course…

Over by the one side of the door…

Sora: *Looking at Carly* How exactly are Blossom and Leslie able to have this done? They had to have pulled a lot of strings in order to see this take place.

Carly: That’s the only logical thing. There was a lot of strings pulled in order for it to happen. At least… like this.

Justin: At least it gets us away from the school for a little bit. There’s been a couple of tough guys trying to torment me.

Sora: Really? Why?

Carly: Who’d want to start stuff with you? What could they possibly gain from doing as such?

Laurence: I might have an idea as to who the two guys are that have been trying to mess with him. They’re not exactly the nicest ones around either. Cory Sweeney and Clark Newton. They’re known to be the wannabe tough guys who think that they reign the veins of the High school halls. Looking for anyone they think is inferior to the likes of them and carry out with targeting and tormenting.

Justin: I don’t want to fight them. Fighting is stupid as it doesn’t solve anything. All it does is add to the problem.

Laurence: That is true. It only adds to the problem. But you gotta know when and where to take a stand. If you don’t… They’ll have open season on you. Not that it’s that bad… But do you really seek to be a victim all your life?

Over by the top of the stairs leading down to the underground bunker leading to the Airship…

Zoey: Okay, you guys… we need to get serious here. We have a band and yet… we don’t have any songs made for our band. We have to start getting off the rocks and putting some traction into our band.

Roger Densworth: Zoey, We’ve been trying. But nothing’s coming. No one seems to be in electronica anymore and we are seeking for going either Rock & Roll or Pop. Maybe Country.

Gene Douglas: That would be a rather step up. We need to find someone who’s got the spark… Maybe seek to borrow a few songs from that band Empire of the Sun and put either a Rock and roll or Country feel to it. Maybe make a different version to their songs?

Ridge Mercer: That could help. But we’d have to listen to the songs a few times to get the tempo and then decide how to change the beat into a country feel to it.

Forest Winters: You think that it could be done?

Ken Olivers: We can practice it…

However… one of them had a surprise. Question was… Who was it that had the surprise and was it gonna be their leg up in the right direction?

Zoey: We should Practice a bit. We’ve been waiting long enough.

Paulie Wellington: Well… As soon as the doors down there open… We’ll get at doing some practicing.

Paul Harmon: What do you think is down there behind those doors anyway?

Ian Gavins: Not entirely sure… but the door down there is rather long and really tall.

Ridge Mercer: Where’s our equipment at?

Jeremiah Brown: *Looking to the side* Beats me. Where’s Leslie and her partner Blossom?

Zoey: They brought the Instruments. It’s over by the side gate. But as for where they’re at… I can’t tell. I didn’t see them yet. Leslie and Blossom are likely already inside the hangar and inside whatever’s inside the hangar.

Walking by and heading down the stairs over to the outside of the Hangar…

Doralee Harper

Doralee Harper: *Looking at the young teens* Howdy young men. What’re you doing up here instead of down there with the others?

Zoey: We’re just waiting for the doors down there to open. It’s too crowded down there and it’s kinda gotten packed. We’d never fit through there. So we’re up here waiting and going over some things revolving our band.

Doralee Harper: *Pauses* Band? You have a band?

Zoey: You bet. They’re my band members. I’m the leader… which they appointed and since i happen to be a Mentor to a couple of them… It’s best fitting.

Doralee Harper: What’re their names?

Ridge Mercer: Ridge Mercer. Singing Vocal Prodigy.

Jeremiah Brown: “Rocking Dynamo” Jeremiah Brown.

Roger Densworth: Roger Densworth. Harmonica player and Music Maker. Whistler too.

Paul Harmon: Paul Harmon… Flute Genius. Been playing the flute for 4 years. Since 10 years of age.

Forest Winters: Forest Winters. Synthesizer Piano.

Paulie Wellington: Paulie Wellington. Saxophone.

Ian Gavins: Ian Gavins… Drummer.

Gene Douglas: Gene Douglas. Back-up Vocals.

Ken Olivers: Ken Olivers. Back-Up Vocals.

Zoey: And then there’s me. I’m the leader to the band and am known as Empress Heart.

Doralee H.: Sounds like a rather nice band. Very nice. I do reckon’ that it’d be a rising band someday.

Ridge: You think so?

Doralee H.: Well sure… Things are known to happen just out of nowhere. Plus… you young men are working hard for it. So… there’s no reason as to why it shouldn’t be a reality. If it’s really something that you insist on reaching for… There’s no reason as to why you shouldn’t reach for it and claim your spot in the Music industry. In fact… I happen to reckon’ that with the way things are going and changing… Evolving as they always do with the passing of time… New Talent is always being discovered. If a talent agency rep. Manages to overhear you guys playing and comes a listening… finds you to be good… You could very well be with a career destined to be on the rise.

Jeremiah: Whoa!

Gene: That would be pretty flippin’ awesome.

Donald Nickols: I guess that it’d be something to be a fancy to. I’m a Brit by blood. But getting into American Customs is a jolly fine idea. I am all for bands. Seeing new smashing talent rise their careers to the top.

Jessie Rogers: It’s only starting. But for a band… They’d need an entourage.

Owen Kingsley: I’m a Model. A Teen Model… But could be like a Guard for them.

Tony Ipkiss: A Teen Model? *Looking at Owen* You’re kidding? I’m a Teen Model as well. What kind of Modeling do you do?

Owen: Swimsuit. Just the basic though. Some of the things that they have us do tend to get a little erotic but I stay away from those kinds. Just the casual. Why?

Tony: They nailed me with the Erotic kind. The somewhat Kinky kind. They got me under some bloomin’ contract and if i break it… *Imititating an Axe* I’m done for. It’s a Non-binding one too.

Jessie: Can’t you get out of it?

Tony: I wish that it was even an ounce of something possible to do. But… It isn’t. heck… My father… Stanley. He even asked me if i was able to get out of it. I told him the same thing. He adopted me earlier on this year. Around the second month. The beginning of the second month. His life got turned around quite a lot and he was able to adopt. However… I also got a sister. Cherry Ipkiss. She’s with hot Pink colored hair. She’s a Singer. Not like the normal. But she’s a Barbershop Voice. Singing at Pubs. Barbershops. Malt shops. Burger Joints too. She sings the bubble gum style songs. Doo Wop. Yeah… i know. those are the oldies. But you got to grant her slight of hand with that. She’s making it work and it’s reaching a resurrection. A destined Resurgence a Decade overdue.

Aurora Grantham: It’s getting close to time for the Secret Wedding to begin… At least for the procession part. Meeting and greeting. But the big doors down there aren’t opened yet.

Percy Vaughn: Wonder what’s keeping them from opening the gates.

Ben Angels: No idea.

Suddenly…

A Moment later…

Voice: *From Loud Speaker* Cdyht po vun Puyntehk bnulatinac. Kad nayto vun kyda byndehk… (Stand by for Boarding procedures. Get ready for gate parting…)

Lorelai: The gate’s are starting to open.

Sora: it’d be great to see the Airship again. I wonder what it’s like now.

Justin: i wouldn’t know. But it’s good that the gate is finally gonna open. It was almost starting to feel as though it wouldn’t ever open.

Michelangelo: It sure seemed as though that it was taking quite a long time.

Ricky: I never ridden on a Airship before. So this’ll be like the first time in my life of riding in one.

Ralph: It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. Isn’t it?

Zoey: *From the top of the stairs* Okay, guys… let’s grab the instruments and get started on down. The doors are about to open.

Gene: Okay, Zoey.

Ridge: I guess that it’s showtime… isn’t it?

Jeremiah: Sure is. But not to worry. This is something that we’ve been prepping for.

Ken: Yeah. This will be rather thrilling.

Jessie: Too bad that the new girl in the city can’t join in on the festivities.

Brenda Rhapsody: *Pauses* Huh? New girl… What new girl?

Jessie: What? You mean that none of you know?

Candy: No. We didn’t know. Who’re you talking about?

Jessie: Some girl… is in town. We happened to have seen her while Owen, Percy and Gerald plus me were on the way here. There was this girl. I think that she was talking to that odd Merchant. Said her name… was Joanna.

Rita: The name doesn’t seem to ring a bell. You sure that you saw this girl?

Jessie: Yeah. I mean… it was either that or she sure played a good act.

Tex: *Putting out his light* It had to be some ploy. It must have been. We don’t know of a Joanna. Do we?

Kimahri Ronso: *Suspicious* Kimahri go check out about the girl.

Blossom: Kimahri, No. It’s okay. We shouldn’t worry about this new girl. She’s probably harmless.

Voice: *From the Loud speaker* Puyntehk bnulacc huf eh cacceuh… Bmayca ahdan dra Yencreb yht fa ycg dryd oui du tu fydlr ouin cdab. Dryhg oui. (Boarding process now in session… Please enter the Airship and we ask that you to do watch your step. Thank you.)

It was a moment later that everyone were inside the Airship. All the guests. The band of Zoey’s, Leslie and her mother… Blossom and of course… her father all were inside the Airship. Their friends. a large # of them were there. The event was only starting and already things were getting wild and interesting. There wasn’t any mystery as to what was gonna happen throughout the event. There were surprises aplenty. Surprises and shockers.

Inside the Airship…

The Bridge…

Cid.

Cid: *To Brother* Ugyo, oui ryen pnyehat yen rayt. Bnabyna vun dyga uvv… (Okay, you hair brained air head. Prepare for take off…)

Brother: Bnabynehk vun dygauvv. Paah muhk desa cehla mycd desa Yencreb fyc icat. (Preparing for takeoff. Been long time since last time Airship was used.)

Cid: Well… what do you expect. There wasn’t a need for the airship for quite some time. But it left time for there to be work to be done on it. Fixing it up and getting it all done up anew.

Brother: There’s been new additions to it. New defenses and weapons. In case that there’s anything going on while we are in the air.

Cid: Right.

Once the airship was up in the air…

Main Corridor; outside the Bridge…

Roger Densworth Ridge MercerPaulie WellingtonKen OliversIan GavinsJeremiah BrownPaul HarmonGene DouglasForest Winters

Jeremiah: Well… *Looking at the hall* Here we are. This is where we’re to be till after the event is over.

Ridge: We should rehearse a little. It’d be a good idea for us to get prepared to Jam. When the program officially starts… We’re gonna be expected to rip and put the playing skill to work.

Roger Densworth: I’m always up for a good jam. The Harmonica can do some tunes.

Paul: My Flute is tuned to swing.

Paulie: *Playing his Saxophone* I got a good idea. Let’s play like we’re from the band… the Rock band that’s out there still tearing it up.

Ian: Seriously, Paulie. *Scoffs* Are you quite aware that we can’t play to their particular Magnitude. You are talking as if we should pose as the Demon, Star Child, The Cat, and The Space Ace. Not to forget the Fox. We can’t play as them. It’d never work.

Jeremiah: how is it that you know it wouldn’t work? We never tried it.

Gene: We should try it.

But there was a sneaky surprise in store for them. What the Al-Bhed within the ship didn’t tell anyone was that they secretly managed to contact a Rock band and it just so happened to be the Hottest band in the world. Yeah… Chalk one up for those Al-bhed/Afghani’s. They really pulled in a real deep favor.

Level Two Side corridor…

Gene “The Demon”: *Feeling Floaty* Whoa. That was a hell of a take off. My ears are popping like rockets.

Paul “Star Child”: Easy there, Demon. You’re not the only one with that floaty sensation.

Peter “Catman”: This is a nice ride though. *Looking at the room* We are here of course for a special surprise to a couple of gals who’re getting married.

Ace “Space Ace”: Ah! Yeah. Right. A couple of teen girls who happened to dip the sauce. Young loves in bliss.

Gene “The Demon”: *Nods* Lovers in bliss. Teen girls who seek the tie that binds.

Paul “Star Child”: Who’re the ones getting the bells of Matrimony? Any clue on who’re getting married? We were told that there were two girls. But no one said who they were. We don’t even know their names.

Peter “Catman”: Whoever they are… they’re in love. They say that love’s a gift. Some people happen to forget that.

Gene “The Demon”: I’m sure that they must be a real find for each other.

Paul “Star Child”: Whoever they are. *Thinking* What about that young teen… The one with the snappy looking guitar.

Ace “Space Ace”: Which one you talking about there, Star Child?

Paul “Star Child”: The white one. The girl with the golden brown hair had this White guitar. It wasn’t just any guitar. It happened to be a 1955 Gretsch White Falcon. John Frusciante… one of the 6 lead guitarists of the American Funk band: “The Red hot Chili Peppers” played with that same exact guitar. But that band also genres as alternative rock, Funk Rock, Funk Metal and Rap Rock.

Gene “The Demon”: *Whistles* That’s hot. That’s got to be a heavy playing instrument. How’d she get it? It must have cost a fortune.

Ace “Space Ace”: You really wouldn’t think that she ripped it off from somewhere or someone… would you? She must have gotten it from somewhere. Or someone got it for her. So… here’s the question: How did she get it?

Peter “Catman”: I think that someone might have bought it for her.

Paul “Star Child”: We should ask the girl.

Gene “The Demon”: Good idea. Because the idea that a young teenage girl… Like her having a guitar like that is almost the same as concluding that she’s a Guitarist with skills… Mad skills beyond her years.

Paul “Star Child”: She’s not only a guitarist. She’s also a lead singer. To a band of her own from what some of the hearsay tells. It’s said that she goes by the name “Empress Heart.”

Ace “Space Ace”: Seriously?

Paul “Star Child”: *Holding a hand up swearing* No lie, Man. No lie. That’s what she’s said to go by. She has band members who consist of a Singing Vocal Prodigy. and this one Music savvy 14 year old… Who happens to be a “Rocking Dynamo”.

Gene “The Demon”: Can they really play?

Paul “Star Child”: Oh shit yeah, Demon. They can play. On our way in here… I heard a couple of the patrons who’re also here for the wedding… Talking about them playing a song or two for the soon to be married couple.

Ace “Space Ace”: Now that answers a lot.

Peter “Catman”: Oh yeah. Suppose that we should send for them and you know… meet them?

Gene “The Demon”: That would be a good idea. Only… one problem. We don’t know where they are on this airship.

Suddenly…

*Knock… Knock… Knock!”

Gene “The Demon”: *At the door* Yes?!

The door then opens…

Rin: *Standing before them from outside the door* Knaadehkc! (Greetings)

Paul “Star Child”: Who’re you? You one of the locals of this airship?

Rin: Hud xieda. E ys sanamo y Sanlryhd, Dnyjam Ykahd yht Nekrd huf y Vammuf Bydnuh cilr yc ouincamjac. E’s [Rin]. (Not quite. I am merely a Merchant, Travel Agent and Right now a Fellow Patron such as yourselves. I’m [Rin].)

Peter “Catman”: What’s with the funky language, Rin?

Ace “Space Ace”: Yeah. It sounds kinda trippy.

Gene “The Demon”: *picking up the translation* You said that you were just a Patron currently. Right?

Rin: That is correct. *Pauses* Wait. You understood Al-bhed?

Gene “The Demon: If it happens to sound Middle eastern or Hebrew in any way… then yes. I understood.

Rin: How is it that you understood?

Gene “The Demon” Because underneath this mask or make-up. I’m just Plain old Gene Simmons. Musician, Actor, Entrepreneur and proud father of two kids. This Make-up and outfit… or apparel… is just for show and for the Rock band KISS. It’s not real. Just made real for the followers and fans.

Paul “Star Child”: It’s the truth. This sort of apparel that you see on us is just all part of the whole gimmick of the band. Just a gimmick. We’re just normal working musicians who favor in giving people a show. Us just admiring our craft.

Rin: I see.

Peter “Catman”: Say… Uh, Rin. Would you know where we can find this band of teens with instruments? One of them being a girl with a famous guitar…

Rin: Oh… You mean Zoey T. Rhapsody. She’s on the upper level just outside the hall where it leads to the Bridge. Why might i ask is it that you’re pleading to know?

Gene “The Demon”: We’d like to meet that band. See what they’re like.

Rin: Very well… I shall go and deliver the summons to them.

It was only a minute or two later when…

Zoey “Empress Heart”: *Walking into the room* We’re here. What’s up? *Looking at the 4 guys* Oh god… You’re… you’re… you’re KISS. *In Shock*

Ridge “Singing Voice Prodigy”: Hey there. Nice to meet you.

Jeremiah “Rocking Dynamo”: You guys are here for the special event?

Roger Densworth: *Looking at the apparel on the guys* Pretty far out look you guys got. We like the style.

Paul Harmon: Yeah. You guys definitely got that edge in style. I like that.

Forest: You guys don’t play Synthesizer piano’s. I wouldn’t suppose. But i do. You guys have alot of flair. We like that. two styles… as one.

Paulie Wellington: *Winks* Nice to meet you guys. You guys are KISS, Right? Let’s see… We got Gene, Paul, Peter and Ace. “The Demon”, “Star Child”, “Catman” and “Space Ace”.

Ian: And i’m a drummer. You should maybe hear me tear it up with the Drum solo’s. I am rather amazing.

Gene: Ken and i are the back-up vocals. But we are also harmonizers in the voice.

Ken: Ask us to sing… we’ll prove it.

Zoey: Boys… Boys…. there will be no need for that. We’ll have the chance at doing that soon. Remember… we’re playing here for the two brides.

Paul “Star Child”: Who are the brides?

Ridge: Ease up, cats. you’ll find out soon enough. it’s a couple of doves who’re in the itinerary of getting the marriage jive.

Zoey: They’re my cousin and my good friend. Blossom and Leslie.

Ace “Space Ace”: Ah! So it finally comes out. We learn of it being a couple of girls getting the wedding bliss. Now that is what i call a bombshell surprise.

Jeremiah: Surprises are yet abounding… they just keep getting more consistent… don’t they?

Gene “The Demon”: that there, Kid… is an understatement.

Zoey: *Nods*

A few minutes later…

Airship- Level four.

Justin: I never been on a airship before. I just hope that i don’t get airsick.

Michelangelo: You won’t. I might though. I never really said it to anyone before… but i have a mild weak stomach. If i were to wind up in the air like this… i tend to get queasy.

Donald: *A little cautious* Uh… i think that i’ll just stick to the other side of the room here. Because… if you’re gonna get sick… it’s best if i didn’t get too close. Not that i think that you can help the fact that you tend to get airsick. however… i don’t want to catch the sensation or the feeling and be in the same boat.

Gerald: Oh come on. it’s probably just motion sickness. Some people just tend to have it more than others. and there are some who’d feel sensitive to it. Very sensitive.

Percy: The event is gonna start soon. *Looking at his watch* it’s gonna start in less than an hour.

Sora: *Looking at Justin* It’s gonna start. But there’s something off about all this.

Justin: What do you mean?

Sora: We haven’t seen a sign of Blossom and Leslie since we got on to this Airship. Where do you suppose they are?

Michelangelo: I wish that i knew. But i haven’t really seen Zoey much since we got on to the airship either. I would guess that she’s with her band. But that’s only a wild guess.With our luck… they could just be around to pay their support for the wedding that’s going on today.

Justin: Actually… she is with her band. But the whole question is that… how are they gonna be able to perform on this airship? Where will they be able to set their stuff up… Not only that… But there is also a famous band out on this ship too… Where will they be able to set up and get things all up and prepared to go for a show? There’s too many people here as it is… There won’t be enough room.

Donald: I wouldn’t fancy on worrying any. I am quite sure that it’ll be worked out for everyone… even those bands. Likely the one that they have in one of the other rooms. They’ve got this weird make up on…

Gerald: *With accent* Aye’ Oi wouldn’t worry so much, lass. With our luck… they could just be around to pay their support for the wedding that’s going on today.

Sora: *Sighs* That would be the least of the problems. However… Carly won’t be sitting around with us. Since Johnny’s left… she’s been just anti-social. She and I don’t really hang out much anymore like we used to do in the past.

Justin: Because of her habit. The smoking. Didn’t you even tell your mom about that, Sora?

Sora: What do you think? *Scoffs* Of course i told her and i even explained the whole detail… My mom could only look at me with a look of blank confusion on her face. It’s like she was dazed and not following what i meant.

Justin: What’re you gonna do? You got to get through to her somehow. It’s making her into something that isn’t her at all…

Sora: It’s ever since that Johnny came into her life. I feel bad for Carly because she really took it hard when he left and just vanished. But Carly hates when i try to place any sort of blame of how she is on Johnny or whoever he/she is. Thing is… I don’t care if she likes it or not. She wasn’t like this… till that moment. Since Johnny left… All she can do is just sit around in a slump. A damn slump… moping around like a zombie. She even lights up in the same room that i sleep in as well.

Donald: Your sister might need some very deep help.

Michelangelo: Where is Carly anyway?

Sora: Who knows. I would guess that she might be with some of the other guys, Michelangelo. I don’t have any clue.

Ramp from level three leading to level two.

Some of the side guests… The ones that they met from school were there and speaking amongst one another and waiting for the very moment that the event was said to start. There was no telling as to when it was to begin. But there were tons of anticipation and adrenaline… plus high running pulses flowing throughout the patrons….

In The Observation deck of the Airship…

Two Curtains were put up and made up two small shacks that were to accommodate Blossom and Leslie as they were getting prepared for their wedding. Wakka was the guard for Blossom’s shack and Kimahri was the Guard for Leslie’s Shack.

Blossom: *Sighs* Getting Married is hard work. There is just so much that could happen.

Wakka: It can’t be that bad, ya. This is a special occasion for you and Leslie. You and her have been wanting this for a while now.

Blossom: I know… *Getting changed into her white dress and dress pants* It is true that i have been wanting this for a while and it’s been discussed between both Leslie and I… Then getting our parents involved with the idea and everything… It’s been something we wanted. But it’s just been talk. However… Now… it’s not just talk. It’s now becoming a reality. It’s actually happening.

Wakka: Sounds kinda intense, ya?

Blossom: Seems to be. It just seems as so… That’s for sure. Leslie’s tickled over it. I am the one with the nervousness. The tickling butterflies in my stomach.

Wakka: *Gasps* You’re kidding, ya. Seriously? But you’re the gutsy one. How is it that you have the butterflies inside floating around your stomach?

Blossom: *Scoffs; While finishing getting dressed up for her wedding* Are you serious? Seriously, Wakka?! What the hell do you think that reason is? Huh? Why is it that i have these butterflies floating inside my stomach? I will tell you… It’s because i am nervous and terrified. Terrified about what the hell could all happen while going through the whole mess. I Love Leslie. I want to Marry her… I really do. I just don’t know what’s gonna happen next between her and I. What if she gets cold feet? What if i get cold feet?

Wakka: Whoa… whoa… whoa. Calm down. Blossom, calm down. It’s gonna be okay. You just got to take a deep breath and remain calm, ya. You shouldn’t be so worked up over the wedding. It’s just your happy day. nothing to worry about.

As for Leslie…

Leslie: *Getting dressed and into her wedding dress* God… there’s so much riding on this day. The guys in the bridge are putting a lot on the line for just me and Blossom.

Kimahri Ronso: The Al-bhed know what is at risk. Kimahri knows how important this day is for you, Leslie.

Leslie: How is it that you already know, Kimahri?

Kimahri: Kimahri sense how you and Blossom feel about one another. It is no secret that you and she were meant to be. Were to be pair for many years.

Leslie: Wow… For a guy who’s a hybrid… You sure know quite a lot. I guess that you really do know what’s what. *Putting on the last piece of her wedding dress* I am just concerned about the special occasion? There is still that stigma of people expecting me to be who they feel that i should be in their eyes. But yet no matter what i do… i can’t seem to please everyone. What am i to do, Kimahri?

Kimahri: Kimahri Not know what Leslie should do. But Kimahri think that Leslie should just stay Leslie. Not worry about what those around her say to her and tell her to be. Just be who she is supposed to be. through her eyes.

Leslie: So… you’re saying that i should just follow my own dreams and not worry so much about what those around me feel that i should be and listen to what they think that i should do… Right? Kimahri. I see what you’re suggesting. I do. However there is a lot that i should let out. I got to where i am now because i listened to others. Which helped build my reputation back up and gave me a Stadium out of it. I can’t just go deaf on them and no longer listen.

Kimahri: Following paths of others is good. Following own path…. is greater.

Leslie: I would guess that you seem to be right about it. I… *Groans* I just can’t shake the fact that something is liable to go wrong. There’s that feeling as though something could still go wrong and the more i think about it… the more i feel unease about it.

Kimahri: Kimahri don’t think that Leslie should worry so much about what might go wrong. But just focus on the positive. Thinking about what is gonna happen after the wedding is all said and done. In Times like these… one need to keep positive. In Dark times… we must be positive.

Leslie: Dark Times? *Pauses* What do you mean… by Dark times?

Kimahri wouldn’t say anything more about it. He couldn’t. There wasn’t enough to tell. However…

As for the rest of the Patrons…

Perry Rhapsody: My sister is getting wed. To her best friend Leslie. How trippy and exhilarating is that? *Feeling happy for his sister Blossom*

The Rhapsody Dynasty Family Matriarch

Rikku L. Rhapsody: *With her husband* Nick, This is exciting.

Nick Rhapsody

Nick: Yes. It is. But i also have to stay official for this as i’m supposed to issue out a Legal document to the ones getting wed at a young age. Making the Marriage Binding and Legal even though they’re underage and getting wed. The ones getting wed happen to be the founder of the New Stadium… Leslie. And your Niece Blossom who happens to be the co-Founder. They’re getting wed to each other. Today.

Rikku L. Rhapsody: I can’t say that i am okay with the getting wed at a young age… However when my nephew Spencer… got wed… i was not all that moved to it… I tried to  object in it because i truly didn’t think that he was ready yet to be wed. Plus… I wasn’t sure that it was the right thing at that time. However my daughter Pearl and some of the surrounding witnesses were so adamant in the idea that they were ready and knew as to what they were doing. So… I had to just step aside and allow it to happen. Who was i to stand in the way of my nephew’s happiness?

Nick: Is the same thought with you now; Knowing as though this time it’s your Niece Blossom and the girl Leslie?

Rikku L. Rhapsody: Yes it is. I am just baffled though over the fact that some of my nieces… who’re also your nieces… seek to get wed at such a rather young age. It’s as if they feel that this moment of tying the knot can’t bare to wait any longer than only a very short time.

Nick: *Thinking* Hmm… You know… You may just have a good point there about that. I would find it rather strange. Bizarre even. Why on earth would young girls and/or boys want to get wed at a young age. Possibly while they’re in their Mid teens?

Rikku L. Rhapsody: I don’t know. But… see? That’s what i’m getting at, Nick. They’re getting wed at a young age. During their teenage years and are trying to live too quick.  Too quick into becoming like grown adults.

Perry Rhapsody

Perry: What are you saying? Don’t you realize that this is about the happiness of my sister? Blossom deserves this. She is entitled to have this day.  This day means alot to her and you should know that. I want my sister to be happy. that should be the most important thing to you.

Rikku L. Rhapsody: It is… but Perry, Young teens should not be left allowed to get wed. They’re too young. Plus… Marriage is supposed to be a sacred bond of agreement. It’s binding agreement and form of union between two people who love one another and tie the knot signifying that they are willing to stand by one another through better or for worse. In sickness and in health and for richer or for poorer… Standing by one another no matter what.

Perry: That’s What Blossom and Leslie have. They have that agreement. It’s there. I saw how they behaved around one another and how they show how much they love one another. Blossom is ready. Granted that i shouldn’t step all in on condoning the part of being wed while still only teenagers. But in the honest truth of it all… I won’t condemn my sister for it. It’s not right and it’s hurtful.

Nick: Well… That is all well and we’re all for their happiness. The legalities that are to come as a part of it… That’s gonna make it legal. It might only be legal within this state… but it’s still gonna be legal. Besides that in any marital union… there’s usually a prenup and then the binding clause. Usually Marital licenses are for all states. Not just the one that was with the Wedding event held.

However…

It was only a moment later when the ceremony was about to start. It was time for all the attendees to grab a seat and prepare for the wedding ceremony to commence. The Rock band got ready to listen for their cues to get to the front and put on a show…

But it was not like that for Leslie and Blossom… They were with Pre-wedding jitters as they were a tad nervous. They both wanted this for a while and now that it was finally gonna happen… It was very compelling. Thrilling and Tense. Not tense as in stress and short nerve and tempers. But tense as in anxiety and uncertainty. The Music started and everyone was sitting… awaiting for Blossom and Leslie to come out hand in hand. Turned out that Leslie came out first and stood at the Alter. It was rather odd for them to all be liable to fit on the top deck of the Airship. However… It was managed to be done. Chalk it up to the creativity of the Afghani/Al-bhed…

The Music started and signaled for Blossom to come out…

Blossom’s father came out and walked down the aisle with Blossom. It was a tender but very blessed moment as everyone knew that in just moments from then… Blossom would be a Burke. Or Leslie would become a Rhapsody. Blossom was not able to hide the expression on her face that she was without a doubt tingly and very shook. Terrified about the whole deal. She wanted to be wed to her love. She wanted to finally make it official. But now she was scared of what could come right on after the ceremony.  Playing in the back of her mind was the imminent threat that was threatening to start in just a short time. It was gonna happen in the near future. She felt it and not as if she was to bring it up… She did feel it and felt the presence of something dark getting closer. As she walked down the aisle with her father by her side, she tried hard to put the distressed feeling to the back of her mind as she knew that she couldn’t let out the details to the powers that be to anyone there at the wedding. Because not only were the ones who were part of the powers that be and the Allies there… but there also were ones who had no clearance to be in the know of what was to come. They all had to be in the dark over it. It was for their safety and her team and allies who knew…

Once at the Alter…

Laurence Loomis was the Ringbearer. Laura, Leslie’s Transgender sister was the flower girl. Perry, Blossom’s brother was the Best man.

Reverend Gemstone

Reverend Gemstone: My fellow Brethren of god. We are gathered here today to bear witness to two people… The love of eternal bliss and romance. The fates are funny. Sometimes Fate rejects the purest of heart and unheard circumstances break apart the bond. But the Love that these two have for one another is greater than anything Fate can serve. The Love Between This Young lady… Blossom and her love Leslie… Has been proven to be stronger and fortified among any other. For those who have great cause that these two loving and wholesome people…should not be wed on this day… The very day that in history is the birth of our lord and Savior; Speak now and be heard of or alas… remain silent and thereby forever hold your peace. *Looking at Blossom*  Do you take Leslie to be your lawfully wedded wife, To live together in the holy state of Matrimony? Will you, Love her, Comfort her, Honor her and keep her in sickness and health. Forsaking all others Keeping yourself only unto her… For as long as you shall live?

Blossom: You bet. She’s my other half and nothing is gonna take me from her.

Reverend Gemstone: *Looking at Leslie* Leslie. Do you take Blossom to be your lawfully wedded Wife, To live together in the holy state of Matrimony? Will you, Love her, Comfort her, Honor her and keep her in sickness and health. Forsaking all others Keeping yourself only unto her… For as long as you shall live?

Leslie: Yes. I will.  I Love her and want to be with her for as long as she’ll have me.

Reverend Gemstone: *Reciting a Passage* Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
Love never dies.–I Corinthians 13: 4-8a

A second later…

Reverend Gemstone: *Looking at the couple* Blossom and Leslie may this be the love that you bring into this relationship and may its essence touch all those with whom you come in contact. Love enriches each part of life and marriage enriches love. Your lives, shared in love, can hold more fulfillment and happiness than either life alone. Love is the reason this day was chosen by you to begin your lives together and love is the reason you will give with all your hearts for the good of each other. Love is the reason that together you will become one; one in hope; one in believing; one in sharing the coming years. This is the beginning of your eternal Journey. the path that not all are with the strong heart and the passion to embark. But given since you are here… today with one another. It points that you two are strong in mind, heart and soul and are devoted and dedicated to one another. Fatefully Entwined in one common cause to be together… as one.

Leslie: I do. I love her.

Reverend Gemstone: May i have the Rings please? We shall now do the Exchange of the rings and Vows.

Laurence: *Handing over the Rings to Leslie and Blossom*

Blossom: *Receiving her ring and giving Leslie hers* There you go, My Love.

Leslie: *Smiles*

Reverend Gemstone: Blossom, Place your ring on Leslie’s finger.

Blossom: *Placing the Ring on Leslie’s finger*

Reverend Gemstone: As you place the ring on her finger… Repeat after me. “I Blossom, Place this Ring on the owner of my heart. I make this Vow to honor and respect her. Obey her and be true only to her as she is the soul mate that i give my whole heart and soul to. Proclaim to only love her and be hers forever… till death do us part. I forever give my heart and reasons to live… unto her.”

Blossom: I Blossom, Place this Ring on the owner of my heart. I make this Vow to honor and respect her. Obey her and be true only to her as she is the soul mate that i give my whole heart and soul to. Proclaim to only love her and be hers forever… till death do us part. I forever give my heart and reasons to live… unto her.

Reverend Gemstone: Leslie, Place your ring on Blossom’s finger.

Leslie: *Placing the ring on Blossom’s finger*

Reverend Gemstone: Repeat after me… “I Leslie, Place this Ring on the owner of my heart. I make this Vow to honor and respect her Obey her and be true only to her as she is the soul mate that i give my whole heart and soul to. Proclaim to only love her and be hers forever… till death do us part. I forever give my heart and reasons to live… unto her.”

Leslie: *Repeating* I Leslie, Place this Ring on the owner of my heart. I make this Vow to honor and respect her. Obey her and be true only to her as she is the soul mate that i give my whole heart and soul to. Proclaim to only love her and be hers forever… till death do us part. I forever give my heart and reasons to live… unto her.

Reverend Gemstone: Blossom… Leslie… With the sacred trust of your love and the union of that love for one another. You have Down poured us with the Embrace of your love. Promising each other the joy and the honor of all your days. for the rest of your lives. Done it before God and upon this Company. It gives me great honor and serves this Congregation eternally well as i now with the power invested unto me… to pronounce you…Wife and Wife. You may now kiss the bride…

Leslie: *Kissing Blossom on the Lips as Blossom is kissing her on the lips*

Here is the part where we find out if Leslie’s gonna become with the last name Rhapsody or if Blossom’s gonna become a Burke… or if they’re gonna have one of them hyphening their name…

Reverend Gemstone: *to the Congregation* Ladies and Gentleman… I now present to you… the newly wedded couple. Give a standing ovation to Mrs. and Mrs… Leslie T. Burke and Blossom Cassandra Burke.

Miss Patty: *Deeply Moved*

Dona: *Grins happily* So those two finally tied the knot… Outstanding.

Owen Kingsley: *Standing up and applauding the new married couple*

Donald Nickols: Aye, this scene here sure is making this brit rather teary and quivering. it’s so deeply moving. those two look so mature and grown up. it’s a sheer smashing delight.

Gerald Lands: *With an Irish Accent* I wouldn’t be too weepy over this, my fair lad.  It is just another milestone for them two gals. They be getting a hitched.

Jessie Rogers: They sure do look wonderful and Lovely.

Percy Vaughn: There is said to be a show following this ceremony, right?

Tony Ipkiss: That’s what we hear. I don’t know. I just wish that my father Stanley could’ve been here. He’d like it. I am sure that he would.

Leslie Gaines: It’s gonna be very confusing as now… we don’t know who we’re to be working for. Either Burke or Rhapsody.

Leslie Brent: I think… that it may be both. Now… But i would try to ask and find out. Therefore… we’d know for sure.

Suddenly…

Nick: *Walking over to the newly wedded couple and Presenting an official legal marriage License* Leslie… Blossom… This is for you. It’s an official Legal Marriage License. Which makes your marriage completely Legit and legal. It’s sadly only valid in Metropolis… But still legal for you.

Rin came out to the stage and Spencer with his wife Rikku came only seconds after to announce the introductions of the two music performances that were in store to commemorate the event and to welcome the newly married couple.

Spencer Rhapsody

Spencer: *On Stage with his wife Rikku* Famlusa du dra Vyrnahraed.

This is a wonderful time for us all as we had just witnessed and took part in the union of two girls who you all have known for a long time. But now… for a musical performance… We have two bands. One is known as a rock group that all those who grew up before the current generation and beyond back…listening to. They’re known by their songs: [“Crazy nights, Detroit Rock City, Sure Know something, Shandi, Beth, Heaven’s on fire, All hell’s breaking loose, I was made for loving you, Rock and Roll all nite and Love Gun.”] The other is created by a girl we all knew for all so long…)

Spencer’s Wife Rikku Rhapsody

Rikku: Cra’c ghufh yc [Empress heart] yht ryc lnaydat y pyht ghufh yc [Empire of the heart]. Y Ehcbenat ymdanhydeja po dra Amaldnuhely -Tiu Pyht [Empire of the Sun].

(Without any further or do… We shall start off the musical selection for this occasion. Here’s the band with a #10 set playlist… [The Demon, Star Child, Catman, Space Ace]… Let’s give it up… For [KISS]!)

It was only a mere moment later when the members of the band got all on stage and were prepped with their instruments….

On stage…

Paul: *Speaking through the Mic* Hey Everyone… How’re you doing tonight?!

The crowd cheered…

Paul: We’re here to put on a show for you and to make this day unforgettable as one and all welcome the newly wedded couple. So… Let’s get this show on the road.

Music then begins…

Paul: *With Gene* You wanted the best… You got the best… The Hottest band in the world… KISS!

Paul “Star Child”:  *Singing*

“I feel uptight on a Saturday night
Nine o’ clock, the radio’s the only light
I hear my song and it pulls me through
Comes on strong, tells me what I got to do
I got to

Get up
Everybody’s gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody’s gonna leave their seat

*With Gene* You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City

Get up
Everybody’s gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody’s gonna leave their seat

Getting late
I just can’t wait
Ten o’clock and I know I gotta hit the road
First I drink, then I smoke
Start the car, and I try to make the midnight show

Get up
Everybody’s gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody’s gonna leave their seat

Movin’ fast, doin’ ninety five
Hit top speed but I’m still movin’ much too slow
I feel so good, I’m so alive
I hear my song playin’ on the radio
It goes

Get up
Everybody’s gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody’s gonna leave their seat

Twelve o’clock, I gotta rock
There’s a truck ahead, lights starin’ at my eyes
Oh my God, no time to turn
I got to laugh ’cause I know I’m gonna die
Why

Get up
Everybody’s gonna move their feet
Get up
Everybody’s gonna leave their seat”(x2)”

The Music goes for about a minute and lays out several beats and with that smashed their guitars and Gene “the Demon” started spewing blood and Shook his head screeching and growling. It ended the song with one big bang and when it was done… The crowd went nuts…

But it was minutes later when…

Music started again and chimed with something catchy…

Paul: *Singing* I’ve been up and down, I’ve been all around
I was mystified, almost terrified
But late at night I still hear you call my name

I’ve been on my own, I’ve been all alone
I was hypnotized, I felt paralyzed
But late at night I still want you just the same

I’ve been a gambler, but I’m nobody’s fool
And I sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do
And I sure know something, aha

I was seventeen, you were just a dream
I was mesmerized, I felt scared inside
You broke my heart and I still can feel the pain

I’ve been counted out, I’ve had fear and doubt
I’ve been starry eyed, never satisfied
‘Cause late at night I still need you just the same
Just the same

I’ve been a gambler, but I’m nobody’s fool
And I sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do
And I sure know something, aha

I’ve been counted out, I’ve had fear and doubt
I’ve been starry eyed, never satisfied
‘Cause late at night I still need you just the same
*With Gene* Just the same, yeah

I’ve been a gambler, but I’m nobody’s fool
And I sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can tell me till I hear it from you
And I sure know something, sure know something
I’ve been a gambler, but I’m nobody’s fool
Sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
Sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do… *Music fades*

Paul: Ladies and fellow Members of the crowd… This next one has been sang many times before and it’s one of the greats. But today… This next one is to be sung in a dedication to the newly wedded couple… *Looking towards the couple* Leslie and Blossom Rhapsody… This song… Goes right to you.

Music starts again…

Paul “Star Child”: *Harmonizing with Gene, Peter and Ace* Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Paul: *Singing towards Blossom and Leslie* Tonight I wanna give it all to you
In the darkness
There’s so much I wanna do
And tonight I wanna lay it at your feet
‘Cause girl, I was made for you
And girl, you were made for me

I was made for lovin’ you baby
You were made for lovin’ me
And I can’t get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me

Tonight I wanna see it in your eyes
Feel the magic
There’s something that drives me wild
And tonight we’re gonna make it all come true
‘Cause girl, you were made for me
And girl I was made for you

I was made for lovin’ you baby
You were made for lovin’ me
And I can’t get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me

I was made for lovin’ you baby
You were made for lovin’ me
And I can give it all to you baby
Can you give it all to me

Oh, can’t get enough, oh, oh
I can’t get enough, oh, oh
I can’t get enough
Yeah, ha

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

I was made for lovin’ you baby
You were made for lovin’ me
And I can’t get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me

Oh, I was made, you were made
I can’t get enough
No, I can’t get enough

I was made for lovin’ you baby
You were made for lovin’ me
And I can’t get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me

I was made for lovin’ you baby
You were made for lovin’ me
And I can give it all to you baby”

The band was singing… Harmonizing as one as the song went and Paul was looking the whole time at Leslie. And looking right at Blossom. But Gene was looking at Zoey and eyeing the sick looking guitar that she possessed. He wanted to strike a bargain with her. Which would happen later. The song was moving everyone and it even got to the ears of both Richard and Emily. Now… don’t ask as to how they were able to get there to see the ceremony. But they for some reason managed to slip right on in. In secret. They were moved by it in so many ways.

Gene: *Speaking through the mic* How many people here know about the aches of Love and have moments of being lovesick Yet don’t really give a shit on whether it’s full of Sin or just pure. Just wanting a cure… Or letting oneself get lured and seduced by the power? How Many? *Seeing a few people rise* Quite a few of you have those moments. *Pointing towards Mrs. Gilmore* You… You look like a wild woman… Looking for a cure. Well… for you and all others who happen to feel lovesick and are looking for a cure… This one is gonna be what you need.

Music then plays again and gives a beat to lead into the song…

Gene: *Singing* “You need my love baby, oh so bad
You’re not the only one I’ve ever had
And if I say I wanna set you free
Don’t you know you’ll be in misery
They call me (Dr. Love)
They call me Dr. Love (calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure you’re thinkin’ of (calling Dr. Love)
And even though I’m full of sin
In the end you’ll let me in
You’ll let me through, there’s nothin’ you can do
You need my lovin’, don’t you know it’s true

So if you please get on your knees
There are no bills, there are no fees
Baby, I know what your problem is
The first step of the cure is a kiss
So call me (Dr. Love)
They call me Dr. Love (calling Dr. Love)
I am your doctor of love (calling Dr. Love), ha
They call me (Dr. Love),
they call me Dr. Love (calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure you’re thinkin’ of (calling Dr. Love)

Ooh, they call me (Dr. Love)
I am the doctor of love (calling Dr. Love)

Ooh, they Call me (Dr. Love)
I am your doctor of love (calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure
you’re thinking of (calling Dr. Love), yeah
Yeah, they call me (Dr. Love)
They call me Dr. Love (calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure you’re thinkin’ of (calling Dr. Love)
Love, love, love, (Dr. Love)
Love, love, love, love, (calling Dr. Love) love Dr. Love
(Calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure you’re thinkin’ (Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure you’re thinkin’ (calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure you’re thinkin’ of (calling Dr. Love)
(Dr. Love)
They call me Dr. Love (calling Dr. Love)
I’ve got the cure”

Paul looked at Leslie and Blossom and winked. Gene looked at Zoey again and glanced at her band with intrigue. There was something about them that struck his fancy. Sure… to him they were just beginners and starting. But if the stuff that he and his band heard were valid… There was no mistaking the concept that Empire of the heart would be with the recognition of Gene. Gene had Influence in the music world. There are lots of hearsay that he can come off to be a bit of an ass… but there’s only one thing to ask when that is in play… Would he let that part of him out? Would it ever catch on to Zoey’s attention?

Music started up again with the next #…

Paul: *Singing* “I really love you baby
I love what you’ve got
Let’s get together, we can
Get hot
No more tomorrow, baby
Time is today
Girl, I can make you feel
Okay

No place for hidin’ baby
No place to run
You pull the trigger of my
Love gun, *With Gene, Peter and Ace*(love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun), love gun

You can’t forget me baby
Don’t try to lie
You’ll never leave me, mama
So don’t try
I’ll be a gambler, baby
Lay down the bet
We get together, mama
You’ll sweat

No place for hidin’ baby
No place to run
You pull the trigger of my
Love gun, *With Gene, Peter and Ace*(love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, love gun

Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun)
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun)
Love gun, (love gun)
Love gun, (love gun)
Love gun, (love)”

Paul “Star Child”: *Singing* Like a blade of a sword I am forged in flame
Fiery hot
Tempered steel fire-bright to the night I take
I fear not
Now compelled by something I cannot see
I go forth surrendering to history

Your glory, I swear I ride for thee
Your power, I trust it rides with me
Your servant, I am and ever shall I be

Through a dream
I have a come to an ancient door
Lost in the mist
I have been there a hundred times or more
Pounding my fists
Now inside, the fire of the ancient burns
A boy goes in and suddenly a man returns

I gave my word and gained a key
I gave my heart and set it free
There’s no turning back from this odyssey
Because I feel so alive suddenly
And I wonder, is this really me?”

Peter “The Catman”: *Singing* Beth, I hear you callin’
But I can’t come home right now
Me and the boys are playin’
And we just can’t find the sound

Just a few more hours
And I’ll be right home to you
I think I hear them callin’
Oh, Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do

You say you feel so empty
That our house just ain’t a home
And I’m always somewhere else
And you’re always there alone

Just a few more hours
And I’ll be right home to you
I think I hear them callin’
Oh, Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do

Beth, I know you’re lonely
And I hope you’ll be alright
‘Cause me and the boys will be playin’
All night”

Paul: *Singing* “I just can’t pretend no more, I keep runnin’ out of lies
Lovin’ you is killin’ me inside
Everytime I find the words to end it, something in your eyes won’t let it

Shandi, tonight must last us forever, forever we say goodnight and go home
But you know me very well, and I know you, you can’t tell me goodnight
(say goodnight)

We been holding on so tight, we’re afraid to let it go
Shake it loose, we both could use the ride
Here’s another mess I got myself in, and when you touch me you ain’t helpin’

Shandi, tonight must last us forever, forever we say goodnight and go home
But you know me very well, and I know you, you can’t tell me goodnight
(say goodnight)
Say goodnight when we should say goodbye (say goodbye)

(Shandi, Shandi) Tonight must last us forever and ever
Forever we say goodnight and go home
Shandi, Shandi, tonight must last us forever”

The people in the crowd were deeply moved and happened to enjoy the music performances. But the best of the best was yet to come. And with the Rock band Kiss… There was not gonna be any clue… or any short surprises… But now this was where the last two or three #’s played out… There was possibly gonna be 4 more. But the surprise bracket that was set for the band was 10. So… question was… were they gonna push the envelope?

Paul *Star Child*:  *Holding his fingers up and producing flames for a second* *Harmonizing to kick the beat off* … *Singing with Gene joining with Rhythm and Ambiance* I look at you and my blood boils hot,
I feel my temperature rise
I want it all, give me what you got,
there’s hunger in your eyes
I’m getting closer, baby hear me breathe
You know the way to give me what I need
Just let me love you and you’ll never leave

[Chorus:]
Feel my heat takin’ you higher,
burn with me, Heaven’s on fire
Paint the sky with desire,
angel fly, Heaven’s on fire

I got a fever ragin’ in my heart,
you make me shiver and shake
Baby don’t stop,
take it to the top, eat it like a piece of cake
You’re comin’ closer, I can hear you breathe
You drive me crazy when you start to tease
You could bring the devil to his knees

[chorus]

Feel my heat takin’ you higher,
burn with me, Heaven’s on fire
Paint the sky with desire,
angel fly, Heaven’s on fire
Oho Heaven’s on fire, oho Heaven’s on fire, oho

I’m getting closer, baby hear me breathe
You know the way to give me what I need
Just let me love you and you’ll never leave
[chorus repeats out]Feel my heat takin’ you higher,
burn with me, Heaven’s on fire
Paint the sky with desire,
angel fly, Heaven’s on fire (x3)”

It was then that the lead of the band called out for a 5 minute break. It seemed as though there was something up. But in fact… there wasn’t anything wrong. They were gearing up for the final 2 #’s and they knew what they were gonna be. But they had to get out of make-up first… because it was something that called for them to be in normal look and simple band attire. Some of them knew who they were underneath the make-up and mystique. However… of course with that being in consideration… none of them were about to just blow the cover and expose them… undoing the sense of mystique that was created upon the band and by the band.

Backstage…

Paul: *Sitting on a chair Looking into the mirror and next to Gene* I know what you mean, Gene. Some of the people in the crowd are expecting for a challenge. Want something more than just what they see.

Gene: The people want something great.

Paul: I noticed. *While starting to apply some make-up on his face before thinking* You know… we could go back to just playing at clubs and small gatherings for a while. Without the Make-up.

Gene: What? We can’t do that, Paul. That’s nuts.

Paul: It can be done, Gene. We’re still a rock band. We all can do what we wanna do and feel no shame in it. We can do it.

Gene: You’re nuts. We can’t just do that. That’d confuse the audience out there. Plus… that girl… Zoey… she’s gonna be expecting the mystique. Demon, Star child, Catman and Space Ace.

Paul: That’s just it… they expect that… but not us… out side. Out of our make-up. The real faces. They see us as Rock stars. We are. We’re a rock band that brings them the very best. Leaving with nothing less. Besides that what they don’t seem to realize is that at the end of the day… we are the ones who are in the public eye. They see us. Not the Band persona’s that we possess.

It was then with now their make-up off, They looked as though they were just coming in to get ready with changing into their Band outfits and make-up. The whole shebang. Before they could speak another moment… Music started up and it started with Paul addressing the Crowd…

Paul: *Speaking through the Mic* These are the last #’s before we give it off to the next music performance. From a Band that is New… Innovative and new aged. So… here we go.

Music starts up and playing into a tune…

Paul: *Singing with Gene doing the chorus*

All that style all going to waste
All that beauty, but you never show your face
I’m gonna make my way to you, knock down your door and walk on through
I’m impatient, times a wastin’, girl, if you give me an occasion

[Chorus:]
I’m gonna rise to it, you know I really can do it
I’m gonna rise, I’m gonna rise, I’m gonna rise to it
When you’re lying next to me, baby, I can guarantee, I’m gonna rise to it

I’ll give you fever, I’ll give you chills
Make you a believer, ooh, I’m gonna break your will
A little danger, a little fun, we’re gonna take ’em one by one
Walk the wire of desire, and if you dare to take it higher

[chorus]

Get up, lights, camera, action, it’s getting time for the show
Tonight you’re the main attraction
And if you want a lover who can play the other role, I’m gonna, I’m gonna

[chorus repeats…] [Fades…]

Paul: *Looking to the crowd* This is the last #… You all know the tunes and song. Play along and feel it. Feel it with your heart.

It was only seconds later…

Music plays and gets into the thrill. The crowd moved along to the beat…

 

Paul: *Singing* (Whoow! Here’s a little song for everybody out there)
People try to take my soul away,
but I don’t hear the rap that they all say
They try to tell us we don’t belong,
that’s alright, we’re millions strong
This is my music, it makes me proud,
these are my people and this is my crowd[Chorus:]
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
Sometimes days are so hard to survive,
a million ways to bury you alive
The sun goes down like a bad bad dream
You’re wound up tight, gotta let off steam
They say they can break you again and again,
if life is a radio, turn up to ten

[chorus repeats 2x]

These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights (Paul: *To the crowd* Come on!)
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nightsAnd they try to tell us that we don’t belong
But that’s alright, we’re millions strong
You are my people, you are my crowd,
this is our music, we love it loud
Yeah, and nobody’s gonna change me,
‘cos that’s who I am *Gene’s Guitar shoots off three times before Jamming*
[chorus repeats out] These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights (Paul: *To the crowd* Come on!)
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights
These are crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy nights…..

The Music faded and the crowd went nuts. They ate it all up with the prestige and the fantastic Pulsing excitement that was filling the room. The Audience was full of cheer. They chanted for KISS. The chants went on for at least an hour…

An hour later… It was time for Zoey and her band to get up on stage and play. They were nervous. Jeremiah and Ridge were feeling the tingly feeling which was making them rather queasy. It did pass though however as they had their composure. It was straight on for them.

Zoey was the one to speak and start up the band.

Zoey: *Speaking through the Mic* Hey everyone. I’m as you’ve heard Empress heart and these guys with me are the hearts. Our band is Empire of the Heart. Name inspired by the Electronica Duo Empire of the Sun. We’re gonna play a few songs to celebrate the Marriage of Leslie and Blossom.

Seconds later…

Music started…

Ridge: *Singing With Zoey playing her electric Guitar and Forest Winters playing the Synthesizer Piano* There’s every good reason for letting you go
She’s sneaky and smoked out
And it’s starting to show
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you turn around, your back on each other
That’s a good idea, break a promise to your mother
Turn around, your back on each other
You say that I changed
Well maybe I did
But even if I changed
What’s wrong with it?
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you turn around, your back on each other
That’s a good idea, break a promise to your mother
Turn around, your back on each other
And now our friends are gone, are gone
And all the time moves on and on
And all I know is it’s wrong, it’s wrong
And all I know is it’s wrong, it’s wrong
If there’s a reason, it’s lost on me
Maybe we’ll be friends, I guess we’ll see
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you turn around, your back on each other
That’s a good idea, break a promise to your mother
Turn around, let’s turn on each other
Good idea, break a promise to your mother
Turn around, your back on each other
That’s a good idea, break a promise to your mother
Turn around, your back on each other
What a good idea
I remember the stupid things
The mood rings, the bracelets and the beads
Nickels and dimes, yours and mine
Did you cash in all your dreams
You don’t dream for me no, you don’t dream for me no
But I still feel you pulsing like sonar from the days in the waves
That girl is like a sunburn I would like to save
That girl is like a sunburn I would like to save
She’s like a sunburn, she’s like a sunburn”

Ridge: *Singing With Forest Winters on Synthesizer guitar and Gene Douglas as back-up singer* “I’ve been here all your life
Watching your crying game
You were the heaven in my lonely world
And he was your sun and your rain

I was losing you before I ever held you tight
Before you ever held me in your arms
And I won’t make you blue
And maybe an everlasting love will do

Ah, we got an everlasting love
So tall, so wide, so high above
The rumble of thunder down below
It’s your love I need, it’s the only show

And it’s you want an everlasting dream
Can take us anywhere are the tears
Of yesterday, we killed the pain, we blew away
The memories of the tears we cried
And an everlasting love will never die

Take me out of the cold
Give me what I’ve hungered for
If it’s the pleasure of taking my heart that you need
Then it only makes me love you more

I was yours before the stars were born and you were mine
I could have saved you all the pain you knew
And I won’t make you cry
And maybe an everlasting love can try

Ah, we got an everlasting love
So tall, so wide, so high above
The rumble of thunder down below
It’s your love I need, it’s the only show

And it’s you want an everlasting dream
Can take us anywhere are the tears
Of yesterday, we killed the pain, we blew away
The memories of the tears we cried
And an everlasting love will never die

Ah, we got an everlasting love
So tall, so wide, so high above
The rumble of thunder down below
It’s your love I need, it’s the only show

And it’s you want an everlasting dream
Can take us anywhere are the tears
Of yesterday, we killed the pain, we blew away
The memories of the tears we cried
And an everlasting love will never die

Ah, we got an everlasting love
So tall, so wide, so high above
The rumble of thunder down below
It’s your love I need, it’s the only show

And it’s you want an everlasting dream
Can take us anywhere are the tears
Of yesterday, we killed the pain, we blew away
The memories of the tears we cried
And an everlasting love will never die”

Zoey: *To the crowd* These next songs that we’re gonna do…  Are something that we kinda worked on and yet… don’t have much experience in songwriting. However… we’re gonna play them and see what you all think.

Seconds later…

Music plays…

Zoey: *Playing Guitar* …

Paulie Wellington: *Playing Saxophone*

Ridge: *Singing* “Running through a crowded yard
Trying to catch that bus to you
Girl I had a flashback
Days of fun and us
Stood still on the spot
Frozen in the moment with you.
Looking like a fool
Maybe no-one saw me
Maybe the whole damn school
Sing that song again now
That serenade which sets my heart aflame.
Love will set me free (Love will set me free)
Sing me that song now
That Melody which fills my soul.
It’s got a hold on me.
Your Love shall set me free…
Let’s look back… as you and i Went right back to sunny days
Lying in the woods together
Days when sun always shone
Days when things were good
Where are you now
Where have you gone
Man I need to know
Who lies beside you
in the spot where i once had laid feeling your embrace.
Sing that song again now
That serenade which sets my heart aflame.
Love will set me free (Love will set me free)
Sing me that song now
That Melody which fills my soul.
It’s got a hold on me.
Gotta get myself together
Go and look for you
Don’t care how far I go
Cos of my love for you which knows no limit
And when I find you
And your eyes of flame
I’ll hold you tight to me
And I’ll call your name
Your name that complete me so.
Your name which i can never live without.
Sing that song again now
That serenade which sets my heart aflame.
Love will set me free (Love will set me free)
Sing me that song now
That Melody which fills my soul.
It’s got a hold on me. (2)”

========

Music starts again and plays… With Zoey on guitar, Ian on Drums, Jeremiah on Guitar and Ridge singing.

“You drew a line I rubbed it out
Eliminating fear and doubt
You took a step I took one too
Not knowing what I had to do

No one knows the pain we feel
When love ceases to be real
When the pain outweighs the love
When love at times is not enough

I won’t let go to what we have
Love will find a way to get us back
I won’t let go. In my heart I know
Love will find a way to stay on track

If you’re up front with me
You can’t be too blind to see
We can make this work
And get rid of the hurt inside
(Banish all our foolish pride)

Something has to change today
If we expect us to stay
If we desire common ground
We need to both just be around

I won’t let go to what we have
Love will find a way to get us back
I won’t let go. In my heart I know
Love will find a way to stay on track

If you’re willing, I am to
To shelve the past to start anew
You know that all my heart I’ll give
So we both can really live

If you’re up front with me
You can’t be too blind to see
We can make this work
And get rid of the hurt inside
(Banish all our foolish pride)

I won’t let go to what we have
Love will find a way to get us back
I won’t let go. In my heart I know
Love will find a way to stay on track

You drew a line I rubbed it out
Eliminating fear and doubt
You took a step I took one too
Knowing what we have to do”

Zoey and her band also did a couple songs from Bruno Mars… Something to set the calm for the Wedding. As they played on for the crowd, there was this sense that something was gonna happen. Something that none of them expected. Everything that was going on… happened to be caught by Someone new. Someone that Carly was gonna be in shock to know about… What got her to react in front of everyone was the fact that she could sense who it was. She gasped out the name and it caught the wind of Sora. And it caught the attention of others as well.

From the streets of Metropolis… The music that was being played was heard by this girl… Named Joanna Barlow… But for the most part… no one knew that it was her. No one even could tell that she was once this boy named Johnny.  At least none of the main dwellers of the city. In fact… it didn’t even dawn on them that the girl was him. Or that both Johnny and her were one and the same. To them… The girl was just another city dweller. Nothing more than that. It wasn’t found that on that day… The same day as the wedding… she was in the city and had overheard the strange music. It was Rock Music. It caught her attention and got her to look up to the air… That was where she managed to see the strange object in the air. Not knowing of it to be an airship.

Back up on the Airship…

The festivities were going on and moving in a fast but cheerful manner. When it was time to cut the cake… Blossom was the one to make the first cut and gave it to Leslie. Leslie then made a cut and gave it to Blossom.  It was then that time when they cut the cake and gave everyone a piece.  It was a 5 layer cake with Caramel,Vanilla, Chocolate, Fudge, Amaretto, grape and Strawberry… Well to serve 1000 people easy. Everyone got a piece.

Although…

During the rest of the Wedding event…

Level two side corridor…

Gene S.: *Playing on Zoey’s Guitar* There’s one thing you always remember when playing Music.  An artist is somebody who went to school, who learned music theory, can read and write music, like classical musicians or jazz musicians. Although anyone can read music and thereby write it as well.  *Looking at Zoey* You see… Playing Music. When it becomes a job… it’s not fun. It’s just something that you do for the masses. It has to come from the heart. And from the soul.

Zoey: It does. We have to feel it. Alot of times… we hit a block. Writing Electronica or Pop… Freeform… It’s not as easy as we may have thought.

Gene S.: That’s understandable. Writing music can be hard when you’re just beginning. Because you’re trying to find that niche. That thread of spark that can be the very sound that’d catch a person’s attention. Make them want to stick around for more.

Zoey: So… what’ll we do?

Gene S.: You go back to the basics. Think long and hard on what you want in music. There is something you should keep in mind being in the music business… Rock is about grabbing people’s attention.  To get people to keep coming back for more… You have to play into what they crave. Wow them.

Zoey: Like do something that will distract them from everything else and pull them right in.

Gene S.: You got it. So… when you are out there and are playing with heart and soul… You remember only one thing.  Rock is about finding who you are. You don’t necessarily have to play your instrument very well at all. You can just barely get by and you can be in a rock band. When you are a rock star in front of 20,000 people, you receive instant gratification. A rock star on tour is a king in his domain. *Grinning* You see. Zoey, being a celebrity is one thing… but you also have to know who your real pals are. Because anyone can say that you’re friends but wind up only using. Getting far in the business… It’s only with one simple truth. It’s not about what you know… it’s who you know.

Zoey: *Nods* Got it.

As for the others…

They were all with the crowd and mingling with one another.  Sora and Carly barely spoke with one another… Sora knew that Carly was not gonna stop thinking about Johnny Barlow and yet didn’t come to figure it all in that Johnny Barlow… was Joanna Barlow and had been the whole time in most sense. Carly walked away from Sora and didn’t stop to look at her. To her… Sora was never gonna come to accept Johnny/Joanna. As for Tex Charleston and Samuel Marlborough… They were in the observation level of the ship and stuck to a place where they couldn’t be seen and had a light. They didn’t feel like conversing with anyone. Not with the others.

 Rita and Theodore were on another level and spending some time alone and talking. It was no secret that they had some things to discuss. What it was… Nobody knew. Nobody. Others kinda overheard some of what they were saying. But what ever it was that they were talking about… it was enough to make one wonder. But then again… that would soon be known as we all know Theodore… He wouldn’t be just one to keep the good feelings locked away within. He’d speak up about it.

Now as for the Gilmore gals…

They were just enjoying the throws of the Wedding. The event was fun and exciting for them. Everyone there wanted to be just like them as it had to be no mystery that Leslie and Blossom were a pair of happy and blessed girls. Rory was secretly worrying about what it would do to them if people at Chilton were to catch wind of their new status. That was something to worry over. Even with the given threats of one Paris Gellar.
