2.3 - I Do.

  Brendan, Theo, and Cemre all arrived early at the venue to get the place ready. Already, Theo and Cemre had an argument.
  "Boys, calm down, you'll ruin the entire day if you both are annoyed. As for this silly argument, just compromise. You can both play a song for Laura, just choose who goes first. Rock, paper, scissors is a good way to choose that."
  Brendan was silently thanking the gods that he didn't end up with two boys. He didn't think he'd be able to stop these two if they decided to have a fist fight.

  Finally, after the little scene outside, guests started arriving. Poppy Rose (Theo's fiancee) and her brother, Rain. Behind them are Oliver and Tabitha Evan. A few others filters in and took seats as well.

  Brendan and Theo took seats in the front row. Laura wanted everything to be really quick and simple.

  When it came time to cut the cake, Laura was about to suggest something fun, but Cemre put end to that thought before she could voice it.

  First dance as a married couple.

  After the wedding, Laura and Cemre stopped by Isobel's grave to tell her all about it.

  Laura is going to pretend she didn't see a thing.

 So, there is my requirement for a party to remember. Cemre did play some guitar, though he stomped outside to do so. One party guest followed him.

2.2 - The Infinity Council

  "Whose stupid idea was it to even allow them to learn of our town?"
  No one answered.
  While unofficial, Bodhon was the leader of their little council. He was the oldest amongst them, a few hundred years separated him from even his wife. Still though, he wasn't considered very old in his own domain. What was seven hundred years compared to the Elven King's four thousand? His wife, Oriel, was even younger, only three hundred.
  Finally, someone spoke up. "Maybe it wasn't one of ours," Oriel spoke up. She rarely went against her husband's words.

  Izi smirked from across the fire. "When I told you of them, I didn't expect for the Council to actually gather, nor to be blamed for this."
  Though a bit of a trickster (though not as much as the twin faeries that joined them), Izi was not in the habit of trying to piss people off. She just liked loopholes when it came to wishes that foolish mortals would make.

  "Izi has a point, actually. While we all like to have our fun, none of us are willing to risk everything that we've built here."
  Melisandra was usually the voice of reason. She liked a good trick as much as the next faerie, but she was capable of being reasonable sometimes.

  "I haven't even been out of our town's limits in a few decades," Thaddeus felt the need to interject, despite how awkward he felt putting his words out there.
  Faendir sauntered up next to him. "I can vouch for him there. It's been a most fun few years," he said with a cocky look on his face.

  Sapphire turned her face away and yawned. "Are you done blaming us for this yet?"
  Bodhon turned and leveled his glare at the faerie. "For the leaking of our whereabouts? Yes. As for what to do about them. No."

  Saewen, the youngest of the four elves, sighed. "Make your decision. I wish to leave."
  There were several minutes of silence. No one wanted to break the quiet.

  "They are denied," Oriel spoke. "There is a betrayal among them that has yet to happen, if it ever will. Until it is past. They will find no welcome within our realm."
  "So it is decided."

NOTE: More of an interlude than an actual chapter. We will see more of them in the future. They are all immortal after all.

2.1 - Being an Adult Sucks

  When Cemre shows up for his interview at the theatre, he is dismayed to see Theo already standing there. There was only one position open, and Cemre already knew who it would be going to.
  "Sorry," Theo shrugged as he walking inside.
  Cemre didn't bother going in. Instead he turned and walked away.

  Brendan gathered everyone into the living room, he wanted to know how everyone was doing.
  Cemre regretted his seating choice, he was first to tell about how his job interview went. "I, uh, changed my mind on what I'd like to do. I'm still trying to figure it out." Laura gave him a look.
  Brendan just nodded. "Don't take too long, life will pass you by and not let you catch up. Laura?"
  "I got hired as a playground moniter. While the kids are in class, I get to shadow the lower class teachers to learn the ropes."
  Theo glanced at Cemre before turning his attention to his dad. "One day, I'll be a rockstar. The theatre loved my music. And they provide me with my own place too."

  Determined to not let life leave him behind, Cemre invites Laura out on a date. While she runs to the washroom to freshen up, Cemre heads to the arcade. Zara-Lynn, an old classmate who was in the class under Cemre, takes up the only game he happens to like.

  The aquarium probably wasn't the best idea for a date, Cemre thought later. Laura enjoyed looking at the colourful fish, but it was rather boring for himself.

  As Laura moved to the next exhibit, Cemre knelt down behind her. When she turned to him to make a comment, she was confused until he asked her a question.
  "Marry me?"
  She was too surprised to give him a verbal answer.

  He got his physical answer when they got home.

  "I'll miss you, Laura."
  Pulling her twin into a hug, she laughed. "You'll be just down the road, prat. You can visit any time. I'm sure dad doesn't want you to just disappear."
  Theo shrugged. "I think my music will keep me busy. Too busy to have much of a social life."
  "Family is something you make time for."
  They hovered for a moment, too many thoughts running through their minds. Finally, Theo made the motions to leave. His dog was already at the new place, and Theo knew if he didn't get back soon, everything would be all chewed up.
  "I'll see you for Christmas, Theo."

  Laura loved farmer's markets. Everything was much cheaper then the grocery store. That this one happened to be at the fall festival, made Laura even happier. It was Cemre's idea to go, he mostly just wanted out of the house.

  Laura picked up a couple of pies to bring home. Brendan loved pie.

  Cemre picked up some drinks. Though they wouldn't make it home.

  Laura pulled Cemre though the corn maze before they left. Cemre pretended to know where they were headed, and ended up lost. As it started to rain, Cemre pulled Laura in for a kiss.
  "I love you."
  "I love you too."
  A moment passed.
  "I love being dry too."
  Cemre laughed. "Let's go home then."

  Laura glanced one more time at the folder listing her duties. She had read the thing multiple times, and knew it off by heart. But she was still worried for her first day of work.

  Cemre tried to get some tips by playing in the park. Unfortunately, it began to rain.

  Cemre used Laura to practice some spells. Mostly good luck charms. They hadn't worked yet though. At her job, all Laura heard was from teachers saying she did a terrible job.

  After his terrible week, Cemre topped it off by getting abducted. Hopefully they were friendly aliens and didn't mess up this role by getting him pregnant.

I've played enough that I have pictures for two more chapters. I've been mostly playing Skyrim this past bit. My boyfriend decided to try to make me happy by buying Skyrim for the ps4 for me. It worked. Until Final Fantasy was released. Now he's hogging the tv. xD
