Turn Around; A Mika/Dwight Drabble
I’m not even sure why I wrote this. It just came to me. :D I know I’m gonna get shot for it though, with all the Day running around. But Jay really annoys me. Dwight deserves true love.
I’m hearing what you say, but I just can’t make a sound
Tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
Tell me that you’re sorry
Didn’t think I’d turn around, and say
That it’s too late to apologize
“Do you, Mika Kogo, take Dwight Houston, in sickness and in health, for rich or for poor, for better and for worse, to be your lawfully wedded husband?”
Mika stood in front of the judge, arms locked with Dwight, smiling in her stunning Vera Wang. “I do.” She said.
“And do you, Dwight Houston, take Mika Kogo, in sickness and in health, for rich or for poor, for better and for worse, to be your lawfully wedded wife?”
Dwight was smiling as well. He and Mika had been going out for three years with an almost flawless relationship. They seemed perfect together, Dwight’s parents loved Mika, and Mika’s parents got along very nicely with Dwight. Their relationship was like a perfect harmony. It seemed almost too good to be true.
But as Dwight gave his answer, the doors to the grand hall burst open. “Dwight, don’t do it!” Jay shrieked, running down the aisle. She looked like a mess with mascara down her cheeks and was holding a bottle of jack in her right hand. She only got about halfway down the aisle when Julian came running in after her, which was when Mika and Dwight turned around to face them fully.
Julian took her arm, trying to pull her back the way they came. “Jay,” he whispered, “why don’t we just—”
“No!” She screamed, pulling her arm away from Julian’s grasp. “Dwight,” she turned to face him again, “please don’t do this—I-I’m sorry. I messed up. I—” She cut herself off, not knowing what else to say.
Julian obviously looked very hurt by this. How Jay who, years ago had left Dwight for Julian, was no begging for Dwight back, and Jules wasn’t able to stop her.
Dwight, who Mika thought might go over and throw them out himself, calmly said, “Please leave.” He paused, staring at them intently. “You’re disrupting my wedding.”
Everyone—even Mika—was shocked at how collected Dwight was being about this. All his friends from Dalton looked at him, back at Jay and Jules, then back to Dwight. It was far too late for Jay; he was in love with Mika now.
Dwight stared at Jay and Julian for a moment until Julian grabbed her by the arm again and began to drag her out. Jay struggled for a moment, but when she looked back to meet Dwight’s gaze, she stopped, and the mascara continued to run down her cheeks. Everyone at the wedding watched the two until they were finally outside, shutting the doors behind them. Mika and the guests then looked at Dwight to see what he would do next. He was staring at the floor, looking a little sad.
“Dwight,” Mika whispered, laying a hand on his arm. “Are you alright?”
He looked up at her, moving a bit closer. “Are you sure we should do this today?” He asked in a soft voice a bit frantically. “It could be a bad omen—”
But Mika didn’t care. She jumped up to Dwight, wrapping her arms around his neck and pulling him close into a kiss. Dwight wrapped his arms around her. As the two pulled away, they each smiled. There wouldn’t be any more disturbances now.
