Chapter 21: "I do"
"Y--yes!" [Name] stuttered in excitement, "Yes, yes, yes!"
She began bouncing up and down in excitement as Jack gently placed the ring on her finger. She lifted up her hand, her other on her cheek. Her face turned pinkish-red as she inspected the ring.
It was a silver ring engraved with snowflakes, each snowflake had frost filling it to the brim.
[Name] excitedly looked up at Jack and jumped on him, trying to hold back squeals of excitement.
Her mom chuckled at her daughter and jokingly said, "I now pronounce you man and wife." Then she sighed, "Technically, you are." [Name] looked over at her mom in confusion.
"You know you can't have a real wedding, so you might as well be married now." Her mother stood up and walked over to the middle of them, smiling as she spoke their pledge.
"I do," they both said in their turn.
[Name] excitedly bit her lip as she stared at her new husband. It was like a dream come true.
[Name] sat down in her room and laid on her back, staring at the gentle snow falling outside of her house as Jack did his job.
She sighed and smiled, standing up before strolling over to the window to see if she could see her new husband flying around.
She noticed Jack swinging his staff over a group of kids, causing it to snow more in that area so they could start a snowball fight.
[Name] closed her eyes and placed her hand over her heart before sitting down in the window frame. They had only been married for one day, but it felt a lot longer than that.
She opened her eyes and began to think. Would Pitch come after them again now that they're married? [Name]'s eyes widened in fear. She looked up when a shadow passed by her window, accompanied by the whinny of a horse.
Puzzled, she got up and opened the window to look around, but saw nothing.
"Strange..." She muttered as she closed the windows and brushed it off as a snow covered Jack appeared in her room.
She sighed as she walked over and swept the snow off of his shoulders with her palm. "Honestly, Jack. You need to buy a new jacket, it's falling apart! Its like you're not even wearing a shirt."
Jack shook his head, "Sorry, but--"
"--The jacket stays with you. I know," [Name] finished for him, "But almost all of your chest is showing."
"Is that really a bad thing?" Jack asked playfully as he bounded over to the window and sat down to inspect his creation.
[Name] sighed and crossed her arms before sitting next to him. "Jack, I've been thinking..."
"What is going to happen as I get older and you stay the same age? It'd be weird being married to an old woman, not to mention when I die..."
"Hey, now." Jack looked over at her and sat to where he could touch shoulders with her, "that's not for a long time."
"I suppose, sorry." [Name] sighed and looked out the window, "Your job must be great, bringing so much joy to everybody with such a beautiful thing."
Jack smiled, "it's always great when you're making people happy as you do your job, if they can see you or not."
[Name] looked over at Jack sorrowfully. It must be terrible to not be seen.
She sighed again and stood up, stretching. "Well, I'm heading to bed. Good night."
Jack smiled at her, said goodnight, and stared out of the window again.
