Summary: Wedding. Marines. Pirates.
Koby waited at the middle
of the aisle as the vision in white floated
towards him, soon to join him in loving, holy matrimony for as long as
they both would live.
"Last chance to run," Helmeppo
muttered in his ear, surrepticiously checking the distance to the side
"Shut up, I'm trying to remember
"I'm just saying."
Koby hissed and allowed the sparkly pastels to cloud his vision again
as his fiancee, escorted by her cousin on her father's side with the
ridiculously large mustache, came even with him and wrapped a tiny,
gloved hand around his proffered forearm. Her two attendants fussed
briefly with her veil and train and then settled in behind them as the
group made their way towards the waiting priest.
"Too late now," Helmeppo observed.
"I'm ignooooooring you."
His fiancee bent her head towards
him, "Is Helmeppo STILL trying to convince you to change your mind?"
"Eh heh," Koby smiled a little
harder. "Don't worry, I'm ignoring him."
smiled sneakily. "That's a relief. You might want to let him know that
as Best Man, if you make a run for it, he has to marry me instead."
There was a loud swallow and
Helmeppo gripped Koby's arm tightly. "You're not going anywhere."
bridesmaids giggled. Koby risked a look back at them, hoping to
recognise them from the village, but they were both heavily veiled as
"Yes, Rika?" Koby flushed at the
endearment and turned his gaze back to his soon-to-be wife. As he did
so his gaze flickered across Admiral Garp, his first commanding
officer, and the man who taught him what it really meant to be a
marine. The two men exchanged nods, and then Koby devoted his attention
to Rika. "What is it?"
"You love me, don't you?"
Koby blushed. "With all my heart."
good," Rika's head dipped slightly. "Because, well, I made one teeny
tiny little change to the wedding plans. I hope you don't mind."
you want, it's YOUR day, after all." Koby felt on top of the world. He
was finally marrying the girl of his dreams. Nothing could beat this
The group had finally made their
way past the marine
honour guard and Helmeppo released his grip on Koby's arm as the two of
them prepared to go up the steps for the vows. Koby turned with a grin
to help Rika up the last few steps and paused. Her cousin was still
hanging on to her arm.
"You're supposed to give the bride away now, stupid!" One of the bridesmaids
hissed. Koby looked up at the man and felt the world fall away from him.
"I'm thinking about it," Roronoa Zoro said, his false
mustache slipping slightly.
They made a beautiful pair,
kneeling before the priest.
"You invited ZORO?? And asked him to
GIVE YOU AWAY???"
"But... if it weren't for him, we would never have met, darling."
"Rika, half the marine high command is SITTING IN THE CHURCH!!"
"But they're on the Groom's side, so it's okay."
"... Rika, please tell me that the Bride's side is full of members of
"Well, they're practically family."
The priest looked at the groom
funny as he apparently suffered a loud fit of coughing.
"Are you actually telling me that you
invited a bunch of PIRATES to our WEDDING?!"
couldn't help it, it seemed rude to leave them out. And I needed
bridesmaids anyway and Nami and Robin were so eager, and Sanji made the
most beautiful cake. Usopp and Tony were so helpful too, with
their comments about what to do tonight, although I'm not sure about
some of the things Usopp said."
"And Luffy's your friend too."
The groom surged to his feet and
looked around the Church wildly, before he was sharply tugged down by
"I don't see him on your side."
"Well no, he said he was YOUR friend, so he should sit on the groom's

onto his knees.

groom began to shake from the emotion of the moment. The crowd smiled
at this fondly, except for the bride's cousin, who growled.
does it really matter if they're pirates? They're friends, and they
want to wish you well on this happy day. Isn't that enough?"
As the priest pronounced them man
and wife, Koby sighed and embraced married life.
They kissed, and a great cheer went
up from the assembled family and friends.
It just drowned out the first yell of "PIRATES!"
Afterwards, it was widely agreed
that the reception was the most exciting part of the evening.
Fortunately, there was enough cake
notes: No, I don't know why I wrote this fic, except that I always
wanted to pair those two and have Zoro secretly give Rika away. It just
makes me go awww...
The ending is too sudden and too
my FMA story "Wedding Belles", but oh well. I kind of ran out of ideas,
and there's only so many ways one can end a wedding, really.
