Saturday the 13th

Saturday the 13th




At least, it wasn't Friday the 13th, Xander needed to remind himself.

Of course, there were guests on the back lawn, waiting for the wedding to start. It was an 11 o'clock wedding that would become lunch in about twenty minutes. Really, it was quite simple.

There were those he worked with. People Ducky worked with. It was much bigger than Xander imagined. And his father showed up with Nessa. Of course, it was nice to have Simon stand with him, and Simon's girlfriend brought her family along.

Were they really expecting so many?

Ducky's brother got in late last night. And as much as Ducky detested Jamie being his best man, well..Jamie stood by him proud.

It was nice to see Josie and Henry made it, with the baby. Even Sheena brought her boyfriend. It was going to be a good day. Xander promised himself he would find the good in it. But when he turned back, he saw him. It couldn't be. Why in world... would  Gun show up?

It left Xander a little unsettled, but he certainly hadn't ran away from his past. Actually, Xander hadn't even cared what his first love, Gun was up too, these days. He didn't remember inviting him.

But the ceremony went on. There was Simon, next to him. Ducky's brother next to Ducky. Xander couldn't help but notice their resemblance. They even stood the same way.

Jamie, baby-faced and all, was in his twenties, even if he looked to be a high school Freshman. Xander was happy that everyone was here to celebrate with them, even as the humidity lingered...the ceremony went on with questions and vows, that Xander wondered if he'd even remember one day.

The rain came when they kissed in front of the crowd.
