Chapter Three: The Wedding Ceremony

[In the Royal Church]

Finally, the moment arrived, when Prince Arthur and Princess Morrin had to exchange their vows.

Prince Arthur was standing with Prince Lucas by his side waiting for the bride.

Princess Morrin entered the aisle walking with her Father king Norman carrying a bouquet in her hand.

To tease Prince Arthur, Prince Lucas whispered in his ears “Brother! this is the part where I think you should show some smile on your face. Isn’t it?”

Prince Arthur whispered back “As far as I know, I was only asked to get married”.

Prince Lucas continued “Don’t you think, Princess Morrin is beautiful? You should feel lucky, you are forced to marry a woman like her. It’s not like you are in love with someone. You may start liking her.”

Prince Arthur looked at Azriel and answered prince Lucas “if you like Morrin that much, why don’t you get married to her?”

Prince Lucas smiled, and replied to Prince Arthur while looking at Azriel,” Oh no brother, I have eyes on someone else.”

King Norman handed his daughter’s hand to Prince Arthur and stood by her side.

The minister stated: Dearly Beloveds and Honored Guests: We are gathered here this day in the sight of God and the company assembled to witness the giving and receiving of the marriage vows of Prince Arthur and Princess Morrin.

To the Bride: Do you Princess Morrin take Prince to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, in sickness and health, to love, honor and obey, in good times and woe, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself solely unto him for as long as you both shall live?

Princess Morrin answered, “I do.”

To the Groom: Do you Prince Arthur take Princess Morrin to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, in good times and woe, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself solely unto her for as long as you both shall live?

Prince Arthur remained silent for a few minutes, looked at Azriel who was talking to her father with a big bright smile on her face, took a deep breath and answered, “I do.”

They exchanged the rings.

The minister stated: I now pronounce you husband and wife.
