It had been roughly over 2 years since Mura and Mythica exchanged vows… okay, it was heavily one-sided back then given it having been a true shotgun wedding, but the ring was put on way back then. And now, 2 years later, they actually behaved and treated each other like a true couple. Mura had grown affectionate, offering his body and soul to his spouse through all means. Life looked less grim with a loving partner by your side, and Mura’s eyes began to sparkle more and more with each and every day that went by, knowing that Mythica was just as eager to rejoin back at home as he was.
So imagine the speechless look on his face when he read the mail sent to his residence at the outskirts of Magnolia Town…
A new rule persisted that civilians of Fiore were officially registered as married, which - obviously - wasn’t the case for the two M’s. Hell, Mura hadn’t even let his guildmates know of it due to how confusing his marriage was at first. He read the mail in his hands thoroughly, sweated at first, then looked relieved, and at last rejoiced and excited.
If they had to be officially registered, then that meant that they had to get wed by an official priest. To sum it up, they had to hold a second wedding – this would solve a lot of personal issues with his guildmates as some of them held deep grudges against Mura for not having been to his first, albeit short, wedding.
With Mythica’s help, the necessary requirements and preparations were met – they were to hold the wedding in the rebuilt Kardia Cathedral, a walk away from the guild hall. Mura checked the indoors out, finding himself in awe at the size, room and elegance of the furniture, curtains and stage. A few steps up a wide, open staircase led to the pulpit where the two would exchange vows once more. White and black flowers decorated the puts and pillars on each side of the long, red carpets leading up to the stage, and Mura could barely spare half an hour describing all of the decorations.
Mura had gone to great lengths inviting his family in Midi – his father Miki and his cousins, Tsurara, Suzaku, Yuurin, Naga, Shiro- and Kurobina were handed the necessary finances and means of transport to travel to Fiore, to which he planned the wedding day to occur the day after they arrived in Magnolia Town. However, his most honored of guests also included his other family…
Fairy Tail was especially invited to this fancy wedding, along those among the Ten Wizard Saints who were able to show up – and from among them, he had chosen both his Best Man and Maid of Honor. Everyone else – from the newer Bronze Fairies Thost, Saffron and Alby to the veteran Gold Fairies and his delightful Aces as well as a few members returning from long travels and journeys around Earthland – had been sent an invitation via a mail to each one’s iLac. Mura even went the extra mile to write a physical paper for those without the electronic device. The main letter consisted of this invitation:
Mura Kensho & Mythica
request the honor of your presence as we join hands in the Holy Sacrament of Matrimony… (again).
on Thursday 18th X892 at 3:00 pm
at Kardia Cathedral here in the heart of Magnolia Town
Dinner Reception will follow at the back garden of our newly built Guild Hall of Fairy Tail
- Special Sub-Letter To Leonard Dragonbane:
”’Sup, Leo! Hopefully, you’ve received this letter before Thursday. Let this letter be physical proof of the role that I entrust you with. You were there when I first entered the hall of Fairy Tail, and you’re honestly my second Father. If anyone deserves the right to be my Best Man most, it’s you, you old man. I’m counting on you… and thanks for everything. Thanks for fathering all of Fairy Tail, in the open or in secret.
From your 7th successor, Mura.”
- Special Sub-Letter To Nessa Cordelia Lux:
”’Sup, Nessa! I’d let Mythica choose the Maid of Honor, but she doesn’t actually have many relatives, so she entrusted me with that mission. Let this letter be physical proof of the role I entrust you with. I can’t see anyone else make a better Maid of Honor. Sorry for the confusion concerning out ‘first’ wedding, but it was so fast and convoluted that I barely registered it as reality for a long while… but now I know that it’s all real. And people say that love makes you blind… anyway, I’ve already met with you and Leonard in person. I thank both of you. Writing this letter won’t do as a thanks, but I hope you understand. Share some of that vibrant glow of yours with us on this special day.
The main door was opened on this calm day. The sky was dotted with small, white clouds, and the sun was leaning on the western hemisphere. The chairs were prepared for the guests, and the red carpets were laid out.
Mura donned a completely white suit, unorthodox to traditional color themes. His hair was left to hang along his skull, giving him a much more relaxed look in exchange for his classic duck-tail style.
His father, Miki, had already found a seat up front along with the little, brownette girl Yuurin and the black-haired speed-devil Kurobina next to him. While Miki wore his wooden mask as always, he and the rest of Mura’s family donned traditional, Midijin yukatas of white colors for today’s special occasion. Miki, though… it was apparent to any who saw him that tears poured out through the eye sockets of his bird mask.
The hired priest stood ready up on the altar along with the shaman and Guildmaster. Now, the bridesmaids, groomsmen, the Maid of Honor and the Best Man were to walk up, concluding with the entrance of his to-be official spouse Mythica. He was tipping on his leather shoes in slight anxiety, embracing the weight of this event and what it meant to him and all of his friends and family.
Hopefully, they’d forget his little oopsie with the whole first wedding thing.
