    I thought I reviewed before... oops...


    "But Jaina's only two!"

    "Two years is a lifetime to someone like Han. According to Leia, Han thinks Jaina will go to bed two years old and wake up engaged to a man she met halfway across the galaxy."


    Only if your life has suddenly become Big... totally get where Han was coming from, though...

    Awwww! Jaina's cute there with Mara!

    And... Mara found a dress! And Jari'Kyn's making it! Like that!

    Very, very classy invitation.


    Good post. :)

    Daena, TKeira and YodaKenobi: Thanks for reading!

    I know better than to make a promise that includes a SET DATE for a post....but I will do my absolute BEST to get the wedding chapter up by May 8th. I go out of state on May 10th for a trip to WDW with my sister's family, and will not have internet access that week (Well, they have internet, but they charge $ for it.) I just need to really think this chapter through very carefully before I write it.


    I won't be on the computer April 6th - April 10th and will return April 11th (no, not out of town, just a personal no internet/computer decision for that week). I'll probably work on writing the chapter in my writing notebook during that time.

    Chapter 20 The Wedding - Part One of Three


    "I now pronounce you husband and wife?.."

    "You may kiss the bride,"

    Luke started to lean in to kiss Mara when he was interrupted by a loud buzzing noise??.



    Mara was jerked out of her beautiful dream. She realized the loud buzzing noise was coming from her living room. Grumbling about being awoken so early, she swung her legs out of bed; her feet padded over the soft rug that lay beside her bed. She was ready to let whoever had woken her have it when she realized what day it was. On her bedside table, the calendar that Luke had given her as a Winter Fete day gift was blinking a note she had scribbled on this specific date a few weeks ago. "GETTING MARRIED TODAY" it blinked on and off and on and off under the day's date.


    All thoughts of malice left her as she hurriedly threw on a robe and tried to make herself presentable.


    "Are you sure it?s wise to come here this early, Leia?" Iella asked nervously, thinking about what she had once heard about Mara's fiery temper.


    "Iella, trust me. It takes hours to get ready for a wedding. For example, Han claims he'll have Luke to the Embassy two hours before the ceremony, but I bet him fifty credits that he won't arrive there until perhaps 45 minutes before. And If I win, in addition to the credits, he has to cook a nice home cooked meal for me and take charge of 'fresher training Jacen."


    Jaina, in her mommy's arms, reached out for the door buzzer again, just as the door slid open, revealing Mara.


    "Aunt Mawra!" Jaina said, trying to wriggle out of her mother's arms to get down.


    "I hope we didn't wake you, Mara. It?s just that it takes hours to transform someone into a beautiful bride so we thought we'd better arrive early." Leia said, barely holding onto the squirming Jaina.


    "Did you already pick up the dresses?"


    "They?re arriving by special delivery. Wedge asked Inyri Forge to personally escort Jari'kyn's delivery because Leia and I were afraid she would be delayed if she had to deliver them all by herself."


    "That's not a bad idea. The paparazzi could follow her and our private wedding ceremony could get interrupted by those nauseating jerks," Mara said, softly.


    "Aunt Mawra Aunt Mawra!" Jaina cried out, struggling to get down.


    "Hello sweetie, are you ready to wear your special dress today?" Mara asked, patting the girl on her head.


    Jaina nodded, her brown curls bouncing.


    "I have something for you, Jaina." Mara said, retreating to her bedroom to return a few moments later with a small gift bag.


    Leia put Jaina down, who ran to Mara to plant a wet toddler kiss on her cheek. Then she jumped up and down, waiting for Mara to give her the gift bag.


    "You can open it now," Mara said, laughing.


    Jaina ripped apart the bag in typical toddler style and pulled out a flowery head band and two sets of hair ribbons. "Pwetty." She said, trying to place the head band on her head, but failing.


    "What do you say, Jaina?" Leia asked gently.


    "Twank you, Aunt Mawra," Jaina said, hugging Mara.


    "You're welcome."


    "And yes," Mara added, answering Leia's unfinished thought question, "I thought the headband would be perfect for today, since she's the unofficial flower girl,"


    At that moment, Iella's comlink buzzed. Glancing at the code from which the communication was coming from she said, "I have to take this," She stepped into the refresher station and slid the door shut.


    A few minutes later, Iella stepped out, grinning from ear to ear. "Jari'kyn is downstairs waiting for us. Inyri will drive us to the Embassy. Let's get this party started!"

    Aww [face_love] Mara seems excited the day is finally here.

    "Iella, trust me. It takes hours to get ready for a wedding. For example, Han claims he'll have Luke to the Embassy two hours before the ceremony, but I bet him fifty credits that he won't arrive there until perhaps 45 minutes before.

    What does Han get if he wins, because this is sounding like a pretty rotten deal :p

    Jaina ripped apart the bag in typical toddler style and pulled out a flowery head band and two sets of hair ribbons. "Pwetty." She said, trying to place the head band on her head, but failing.

    Hehe. Cute!

    Looks like the craziness is about to begin 8-} Nice post, Liz :D Looking forward to the next one :)

    It may be awhile before I get the 2nd part up. I have been neglecting my writing, but hopefully I'll get out of his slump soon.

    I still plan on two more parts making up chapter 20 for a total of 3 parts (the first which I posted May 8th). Its just easier for me that way.

    I am probably not going to send PMs out anymore because my readership has dropped majorly. Just put the story on the active topic notification (like 150 days) and I always put an updated Date when I update.

    Thanks for your patience.

    no I haven't forgotten this story......just haven't really done any writing lately....I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what to write for the next part. Also, even if I get the next part up before 2010, I don't know when I'll get the next part after that up (the ceremony & reception). I know better than to make promises, but I really am hoping to get inspiration to get the second part written (if I can just sit down and write, its just not that easy.) Anyway, I'm sorry I won't be sending PMs out anymore....its just too much work and I have lost A LOT of readers, so its not worth the effort.

    Hopefully by December, maybe by Christmas.

    I have not given up on this fic, I just have lost my muse (I think it went to Hollywood to get a job). I'll try my best to get a post up before July, but I know better than to make promises about a post by certain month.

    Thanks Jedi QueenBee. I'll try to motivate myself to finish this story. My writers block deals with the ceremony, I want to write it differently this time.....Just have not pushed myself into spending much time on writing this fanfic.

    I started typing up part 2 of this last chapter of the story and if my word processor cooperates I'll get it finished as soon as I can.

    Hi PadmeSkywalker...

    Thanks for the compliment.

    I actually don't really send PMs out anymore (since its been so long since I updated this), but wh3en I get back to this (and now that I have a new desktop computer I will be doing that ASAP) I'll send you a PM. Just need to find my writing muse (I think she fled to Florida or California).

    You need some motivation to finish this.
    If you aren't doing PM"s don't worry about it.
    So what's it gonna take for you to start working on it again?

    Can't wait to see the rest.

    to be honest, I've just taken a break from this cause I am having trouble working out part of the next part (including the vows) and the part at the reception where the Best Men give their speech. Plus, I've got other important things to do that do come first unfortunately.

    It's okay Jedi Liz. Maybe you'll get some inspiration soon. But don't feel rushed even though I like posting on here a lot.

    *looks at where post from almost 2 years ago ended* okay...

    I started writing a little bit for the next post this past week when I was on a Five day internet break....I just need to actually put it into a good format for posting, add some things I still need to add and then check it with a beta and then, hopefully, I can post it.

    I am planning to end this story with the wedding...I do sort of have plans for something that's like a sequel, but I don't want to get ahead of myself.
