Sun and Judgment are getting married.
Yes, I know, it came as a shock to the rest of us too. But trust me, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
Why and how exactly did they arrive at this particular decision, you ask? According to what I had pieced together from various sources of gossip, the "why" and "how" resulted from a long and twisted chain of events that would put any romance novel to shame. And believe me when I say I've read my share of those. To this day, I resent whichever Storm Knight it was that decided romance novels were a required reading for all Storm Knights-in-training.
Anyhow, back to the main topic. The "why" and "how" really aren't that important right now. For this is not a story about their romance; this is the story of us observers. Yes, we, the underappreciated observers of this whole spectacle who did 99% of the work, and only received a slice of wedding cake in return.
For all you romantics out there, forget about the courtship and proposal and whatnot for a second. There are much more pressing issues at hand. Seriously, do you have any idea how many problems this whole wedding ordeal comes with?!
Simply the fact that the two of them, being the Sun Knight and Judgment Knight, were getting married was a huge deal. Never mind getting married to each other. And noooo, they weren't going to settle for a small and discreet private wedding either. Somewhere along the line the decision was made to have a "proper" wedding.
Which means, it would be public. Which means, it would be the wedding of the century. Which means, my paperwork load had tripled overnight.
I could only thank the God of Light for giving me Roland. Without whom I would not have the time, or any life in me to begin narrating this story. (Adair is much too busy to lend a hand with paperwork. At the moment he and Vidar are conducting some sort of joint training boot camp with their platoons. Apparently it's to promote "family bonding.")
But before we could get to the bulk of all the prep work, one issue was left to the newly engaged couple to debate over.
Who was going to wear the dress?
