Ships are closed for the time being and requests are closed until I catch up to them (but they will be open probably after this weekend)!

Barry’s head felt like it was spinning out of control as you leaned in before he fainted. The next thing he knew his vison was hazy, hoping he had just awaken from a bad dream. The lanky male fluttered open his eyes only to be met with another skeleton and you right beside it, nope this was all certainly all real not a dream sadly. He noticed that there was more skeletons and corpses like yourself in the room as he couldn’t speak a word, he was still all to paralyzed in fear.
“He must’ve fainted,” You say as you move closer to grasp the back of his neck, “Are you alright?” You ask him.
Barry’s green eyes widen as he scrambles to his feet as a skeleton of a child wearing a sailor uniform started poking him and remarking how he was still soft. The male never thought for once calling himself squishy as he gasps at his surroundings, this didn’t look anything from where he was from and soft jazz music could be heard in the background. Barry moved backwards until he bumped into a counter and looked up at the skeleton who held up a beer mug in his bony hand.
“To the newlyweds!” He shouted as the others cheered as Barry eventually got up off his feet and came to face to face with you.
“N-newlyweds?” The brown haired male shudders in fear as you smiled while putting your, err hands in with his. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing, he couldn’t be married to a corpse. That wasn’t legal, was it? No, it that didn’t sound quite right because he was sure officer Singh would say something about it. “I-I don’t understand.”
You sigh as you move around your newly wedded husband while playing with his crimson red cravat that was tied up around his neck. “Oh, in the woods, you said your vows so perfectly.” You answer to him as you lift up your skeleton hand where the gold band was on your ring finger to show the ring.
Barry couldn’t believe what he was hearing as he shook his head, thinking this was a possible nightmare that he was dreaming as he turned his head to bang on the counter that was near you two. “I did. .Wake up! Wake up Barry!” He exclaims while in between banging his heads until he looked to see a head that was moving with cockroaches. Barry couldn’t help but gasp at the head that spoke in a French accent with that had a bug as a bowtie and a curly moustache who was talking about a wedding fest.
One of your eyes pop out to reveal a maggot coming out, “Ooh wedding feast, I’m salivating.” He says as you quickly cover it with a soft awkward laugh.
“Heh, maggots. What do you got to do with them right?” You say as you push Cisco the maggot back in while Barry gasps as he moves back only to bump into another person, well corpse.
Barry moves away from you and the rest while attempting to pull the sword out of the short skeleton only to have him come along with it, “I-I. .I’ve got a dwarf. .and I’m not afraid to use him!” He says as he looks around everyone, “I-I want some questions! Now!”
The skeleton side glances over at him, “Answers. I think you mean answers.” He says as the light haired male nods and corrects his mistake.
You sigh and take a deep breath as you look at your feet before back at the human, “Well it’s a long story.”
Another skeleton comes up with a red and cream-colored tie wrapped around his neck bones as Barry turns around before the skeleton starts to sing as he danced around with the others as he sang to tell the story of you.
You met Hunter Zoloman although your father and mother would not have approved but you fell hard for the charming lord, but of course Barry didn’t know that it was Hunter since his name was left out in the song that the skeleton was singing. You and Hunter made a plan together as he promised that you two could run away and start your own life together but it had to happen at night. You, of course accepted because you were so madly in love at the time with the charming male that swept you off of your feet. Your mother’s wedding dress had fit you so well as you put on your family jewels and brought some gold to help out with your running away as you walked out that foggy night but it ended when you were murdered by Hunter. You had long forgotten his name but you made a vow under the tree to have someone have your hand in marriage which so happened to Barry.
The red and cream-colored tie wearing skeleton had finished you noticed that the brown haired male had gone off as you went looking for him in the underworld where you lived. “Barry? Barry, where are you?” You call out but no response so far until you hear the voice of the maggot that seemed to echo in your head.
“If you ask me, your boyfriend seems like a jerk.” Cisco says as you kept your head held up high, not minding what the maggot had said.
You smile fondly at the gold band on your skeleton hand, “He’s not my boyfriend, he’s my husband.” You correct him before calling out for Barry once again.
While in the upper world Hunter had told the Wests and Allen families that Barry had run off supposedly with an unnamed mistress. Nora tried to explain that Barry would never do such a thing and was probably just nervous however Joe and Francine was getting tired of waiting for him.
“I’ll be in my room, but do please tell me if I can be in any, any help at all.” Hunter says as Nora turns to Francine.
She pleaded to give Barry just a little more time to the other women as Francine glanced at Joe before turning to Nora. “We will give him until dawn.”
