“You look great, Ben” Zoey says.

“Are you sure?” I ask.

“Yes! Now, Parker is waiting for you. It’s time for you to go get married” she says.

“Thanks, Zo” I say and give her a small hug.

“I’m gonna go take my place”

“Ok” I say. She gives me one last hug and leaves. A few minutes later I hear the door open and close again.

“Are you ready?” Peggy asks.

“Yeah” I say.

“Are you nervous?”

“A little”

“Just remember, after this you’ll be married to the love of your life”

“Thanks, mom”

“Of course, Ben. Lets go” she says holding out her arm. I lightly chuckle to myself and grab her arm. The music starts playing and someone opens the doors. I look down the isle and see Parker standing with the minister. He smiles when he sees me and I do the same. Peggy and I walk down the isle until we meet Parker. She kisses my cheek and sits with Marcus.

“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to join these two men in holy matrimony. Do you have your own vows?” the old minister asks us. We nod, “Parker” she looks at him expectantly. He fishes a piece of paper out of his jacket pocket.

“I first met you when I was 11. I thought you were really cute and I hated myself for thinking that. When I was 14, I found out you had a boyfriend and I was so confused because I felt hurt. I helped the football team hurt you and for that I am so unbelievably sorry. You are the most amazing person I’ve ever met and I am so incredibly happy that Aubree goes a little crazy when she ships two people. One day I saw you were upset so I asked you to follow me to the woods. Of course you thought I was gonna murder you. That split second decision is one of the best things I’ve done, along with asking you to spend the night for the first time. I want to thank you because without you I never would have accepted myself. I grew up in a family where being gay was a sickness. You showed me that it’s the complete opposite. I’ll never be able to thank you enough for making me realize it’s ok to be happy even if that means some people won’t like you. Benji, I promise to love you everyday for the rest of our lives. I promise to hold you and bring you chocolate cake when you’re sad. I promise to watch Love, Simon with you on repeat. I promise to take care of you when you’re sick. I promise to make you happy until the day I die” he says. I wipe a tear off my cheek.

“Fuck. I knew I shouldn’t have let you go first” I chuckle. I get out my vows from my pocket, “Ok, here we go. So, you were a massive dick when we first met but I think I’ve always been in love with you. A lot of people say that their partner saved them from something but you actually did save my life. I don’t think I ever would have turned my dad in. After my mom died I hadn’t fell love like I do when I’m with you. You make me feel like I could take over the world. You are the best thing to have ever happened to me. I love you so much and I always will no matter what. I promise to take care of you when you’re sick, protect you, kiss away every tear, and make you happy. I promise to listen to your totally not crappy music with you and make the most of life with you. Oh, and before I finish I just want to say, you’re forgiven. You’ve been forgiven for almost 4 years. If you weren’t, I wouldn’t be marrying you. I’ve forgiven you so now it’s your turn to forgive yourself”

“Do we have the rings?” the minister asks. Carson hands the rings to the minister. She puts the our rings in each others hand.

“Parker Johnson, do you take Benjamin to be your husband until death do you part?” she asks.

“I do” Parker says.

“Benjamin Hills, do you take Parker to be your husband until death do you part?” she asks.

“I do” I say.

“Please place the ring on the others finger” she says. Parker slides the ring onto my finger and I do the same to him.

“I now pronounce you husband and husband. You may now kiss the groom” she beams. Parker puts his hand on me cheek and pulls me into him. I press my lips to his. It’s sweet and short, it’s perfect.

“Everyone, Mr. and Mr. Johnson-Hills” she announces when we pull apart. Everyone stands up and claps.

~~~~~~~~~

Parker and I sit at out table and watch everyone dance. Thalia and Tatum are trying but almost 3 year olds don’t really have that many moves.

“Everything looks great, Ben” Parker says. I did most of the planning and decorating.

“Thanks” I smile.

“But the pun, really?”

“What? It’s a fall wedding! I had to!”

“‘Fall In Love’ is cheesy”

“You love my chessy-ness”

“I guess that’s true” he sighs.

“Hey” Soph says and sits with us.

“Hey” we say.

“So, I think I saw Joey and Zoey kiss a few minutes ago. I ship it” she says.

“What?!” I ask.

“Ay! Get it!” Parker laughs.

“Shut up! She’s 13!”

“That’s not the kind of ‘get it’ I meant”

“No boyfriends or girlfriends until she’s 16”

“You had your first boyfriend when you were her age”

“So?”

“If you say no to her and Joey you’re being a hypocrite”

“Fine. But if your brother puts his penis anywhere near her-“

“Ew, Ben. He won’t. And don’t talk about my brothers penis. I’m imagining gross things now” he says. I laugh at his disgusted face.

“I love you” I say and kiss his cheek.

“I love you too, Benji” he smiles.

“C’mon you love birds! Lets dance!” Sophia says and grabs both of our hands. Kiwi by Harry Styles starts playing and we all dance like mad men. Today was perfect, I couldn’t have wished for anything better.
