I found his jumper 14 || D.H.
A/N: This is a huge jump into the future of Rose and Dan. There is a big chance that next chapter will be the last. (oh no) But now enjoy this one.
“Shortly before Dan started his first year at kindergarten we had the move to the US because of his dad’s job. I was a bit worried that he would have a hard time getting used to the new country and I was afraid that he wouldn’t find new friends. When I picked Dan up after his first day at kindergarten his face was glowing and when I asked him why he answered : “I have found the bestest friend in the world.”
It turned out
that his new friend was actually the little girl who lived next
doors. Her name was Rosie and the two of them spent every free minute
together. They were the loveliest kids and a lot of things have
happened since they were that little. Daniel and Rose are both young
adults now and they grew up so nicely. Looking back I think we all
knew from the start that the two of them shared a very special bond,
but I never actually thought I’d speak at their wedding one day.”
Dan’s mum was close to tearing up, just like my mum and I.
“Are you nervous?” Hayley asked.
She was wearing a pastel pink dress and together with her still green hair she looked like a Monet painting.
“Very.” I admitted and checked my hair and make up for the 15th time. I obviously wanted today to be perfect. In less than a minute I’d walk down the aisle and become Mrs. Howell.
I was curious about how Dan was doing at the moment, but I obviously wasn’t allowed to see him before the ceremony. Phil, his best man, probably had a hard job calming him down. My heart was racing as I waited for the ceremony to start in my dreamy white dress. It fit perfectly and my mum and Hayley, my maid of honour, helped me pick it out.
My hands were trembling when the huge church doors were pushed opened and revealed Dan waiting for me at the end of the aisle. All eyes were glued on me. Our guest awed when I started walking, my dress stopping only centimetres above the marble floor. Hundreds of roses in huge vases bordered the aisle.
Dan’s face was glowing, crinkles had formed around his eyes and his smile was so big that his adorable dimples were showing. The way he looked at me reaffirmed that shouting ‘Yes’ after he proposed was the only right decision. I smiled back at the man I loved since I was a young teen and continued walking until I finally stood next to him. He looked better than ever before in his formal black suit. His hair was the perfect length, not too short and not too long. His face matured a little since we got together in college. Dan gently took my hand in his and squeezed it tightly.
“You are breathtaking.” Dan whispered and was interrupted by words we have only ever heard in movies.
gathered together here to unite this man Daniel James Howell and this
woman Rose Mary Edwards in the bonds of matrimony.
Do you Daniel
James Howell take this woman Rose Mary Edwards to be your lawfully
wedded wife, to have and to hold, in sickness and in heath, in good
times and woe, for richer or poorer, keeping yourself solely unto her
for as long as you both shall live?
If so, answer “I do."”
Dan looked at me in the eyes and then he said 'I do’
His words were loud and clear and filled with love.
I was asked the same question and without having to thinking about it I answered 'I do’.
We then put the rings on each others finger and finally we got to kiss. Our first kiss as a married couple was sweet and way too short for our liking, but we were interrupted by our guest cheering and clapping.
Back in high
school I’d have probably called you a rude name if you had told me
that I was going to marry Dan Howell the person I despised most at
that time. Even in college I would have laughed it off, saying
'nobody knows what’s going to happen.’ But when I was still in
elementary school I fake married Dan in the woods because we thought
it was fun. Actually marrying him now felt like a fairytale come
At the party
after the ceremony Dan’s mum held an amazingly beautiful speech.
After her Phil, Hayley and Caleb rose from their seats.
“I have never seen two people who love each other that much.” Phil smiled, raising his glass. Hayley was stood next to him and although she was quite tall she still looked small next to Phil.
“I have to admit that I didn’t like Dan that much at first but then I noticed the way he looked at Rose and I immediately knew that he loved her. I then saw how Rose hugged his jumper that he gave to her when she couldn’t sleep at night and in that moment I knew that she loved him.” Hayley spoke and made all of our guest swoon. I looked up at Dan as he smiled down at me. He gave me a quick peck on the lips before we returned our attention to Caleb.
“Dan and Rose showed me what love really means.” he said and those words coming from him meant a lot.
We had all come
a long way and ending up with Dan was the best thing that could’ve
We cut our wedding cake and danced the first dance of the evening. Hayley introduced us to her girlfriend and we celebrated all night. We danced and ate and everybody congratulated us.
“Can I steal
the bride for a second?” Dan asked, interrupting my conversation
with Hayley and her girlfriend Gemma.
Both of them smiled at me before nodding their heads.
Dan took my hand in his and lead me away from the ballroom and the celebrating crowd. We ended up on the balcony of the building. The sky was jet black but dotted with stars. It was quite windy and cold especially because my dress was strapless.
“I barely got to talk to you all day because we were always so busy. Did you like today, Mrs Howell?” he asked and my heart started jumping in my chest because he called me that and it was actually true.
“I loved it.” I replied and absolutely meant it like that.
“Good.” he said and started to lean in. Our lips collided. It was slow and soft. His hand rested below my ears, his thumb caressing my cheek as our breaths mingled. I ran my fingers down his spine, pulling him closer until there was no space left between us and I could feel the beating of his heart against my chest.
Our kiss was interrupted by sudden rain drops landing on top of our heads. We broke apart and looked into the night sky.
“I can’t believe it is raining on our wedding day.” I laughed as Dan wrapped his arm around my waist and I rested my head against his warm chest
