450-448 Saint Wedding

 Me and Prathi are husband and wife.

 We've been living together for a while now, I think.

 We've had a baby now.
 Junior is napping soundly on Prati's lap.

 But we've had a smooth sailing and no fear, and I'm not sure if we're lacking in anything.
 Now I'm wondering, "Should I have done this? And then there are things that come up to look back.

 One of them.

I didn't have a wedding.

 It was.

 I met Prathi and it was more like momentum.

 I was fishing and she caught me.
 Not metaphorically, but verbatim.

 You don't know what I'm talking about, but as it was, Prathi barged in and became my wife and we're still married till today.

 Our marriage was just a flick and a bang, so there were many things we didn't do that we should have normally done but didn't.
 The wedding was one of them.

 If I hadn't noticed, it might have ended without any notice.

 After witnessing Arowana and Puffa's grand wedding the other day, I thought to myself, 'Don't we have to do it too? I've developed a feeling of.
 A sense of mission?
 You mean like an obsession?

 Then these words came out.........

"Do we do it too.......wedding.......?

 The first and strongest to react was Prati.

 I've been absorbed in playing with Queen Puffa until now, but she turns around and looks at me.

'Oh no, we're not having a ceremony, are we? Watching you and your friends' wedding ceremony makes me feel that we should do it too.

 It's soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow.

 Prathi said to me, 'What now! I thought he would be angry with me.

''Master Aaaaahhhh!''

 He came rather fiercely at me.
 Don't be abrupt, Junior was startled awake.

'Good! Okay! Very good! Let's have a wedding! Let's do it now!

 Junior is scurrying around with a "What's this, a hostile attack?" look on his face. Junior is scurrying around with a look of 'What is this, an enemy attack?
 We were in the middle of a nap, but calm down, mother!

"All right, wedding.

 Mr. Arowana is very happy to be there.

He has always done more than we can imagine. I'm sure it will be great when we have a wedding.
Please don't raise the bar.
It's never too late to do it. If you are getting married, my wife and I will be present at the ceremony.

 I just told you I'm going to be busy?

 By the way, Queen Puffa is not here because she has gone to snigger Angel.

 That's right.
 I feel like it's too late to have a child, but still, it shouldn't be too late.

 Let's do it.
 To make this the culmination of the lovemaking that Prati and I have been cultivating till today.

 A wedding that has been delayed in the lapses!


 Prathi throws Junior right over the top with a banzai motion in joy.
 And catch!


 High, high, high for Junior is still too early!

 But anyway, it's a wedding.
 We'll just have to get ready. We have a lot of stuff to do.

 The first thing we need to do is...

    * * * *

...or is it Veerle?

 Why does Veerle's name come up here?

 I was married to Veerle, too.
 It was in the early days of farm development.

 When it was decided that I would marry Prathi, I took advantage of the opportunity to marry Veerle, saying "Well, I'll do it too".

 Has it been already three years since then?

 During that time, I thought I hadn't separated myself from Prati and Veerle, but is it a difference in consciousness?
 The more time Prathi spent with me, the more our marital connection took shape and led to the birth of Junior.

 With Veerle, on the other hand, nothing much happened.
 Well, I've made a lot of memories and I believe we've created a deep bond that is worth the time we spent together.

 However, the form of that bond seems to be a different thing from that of a married couple.

 How does Veerle himself perceive it?

 I felt that since we were going to have a definite ceremony, a wedding with Prathi on the other hand, I couldn't proceed with ambiguity.

 So I went to visit Veer downstairs.
 That guy was now addicted to making ramen noodles.

''........there are still a lot of messy flavors.

 After tasting the slowly simmering soup, Veal said.

 The kitchen was built exclusively for this purpose, and he has been working tirelessly to perfect his own ramen soup.

 He was dressed in a black shirt and hachimaki, a very real outfit, and if he folded his arms over it, it would seem perfect.

 He's going to explore new territory as a gluten jar.

"You want more vegetables to soften the taste? That would also raise the content of the dragon extract from Seadr by 0.2%...?

 I decided to talk to him because I wasn't getting anywhere.
 Veerle noticed me and smiled........

''Oh master! Have you come to watch me make ramen?

 No, sir.
 Well, I suppose we need to keep an eye on you to make sure you don't do anything devastating.

Watch me, master! I'm an original! The Gongkotsu Ramen is almost ready! I'm gonna be there in time for Junior to learn to eat things!
You're gonna make Junior eat this?

 You're going to make him eat this shit?

 Yes, Veerle is fiercely protective of Junior, who was born between me and Prathi.
 It's as if he's a child of his own, so much so that even Prati and I, his immediate family, were sometimes puzzled.

 I wonder how this guy really treats our family.

 Of course, in a broader sense, Veerle is an important family member now.
 I don't want to destroy the bond we've built by touching the ambiguous parts of our relationship until now.
 But if we don't take that risk and move forward, we won't be able to form a stronger bond.

 I decided to take the plunge.

''Hey Veerle........''

 I told Veer.
 I told Veer that he and Prati would be married.

Oh, isn't that what we did at the beach? Isn't it okay?

 So what do you think?
 Is that all right with you, Veerle?

Oh, that's the one I married to my master, isn't it? I didn't know much about marriage at the time either. Anyway, as long as I could get the holy sword away from my master, I would have been fine with anything.


Since then, a lot of things have happened, your father has been destroyed, and there's no need to get the holy sword. All I want to do now is to enjoy living with my masters.


'Master is kind and cooks a lot of good food, and Prathi's guy is petulant, but well, he's never bored with me. And Junior is! Junior is adorable! Protect them forever!

 When the dragon says it, the word 'forever' is not just a metaphor....

'I'm having a blast living here! I'm going to keep this place for Master and the Juniors forever!

 I didn't know you cared that much for me....


 I unconsciously hugged Veerle. With Prathi too.

'Veerle! You're one of the great families we have! Let's live to die together!
'I can't believe you thought that far ahead! Mom is happy! Take care of Junior in the future, neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

 When and where did Prathi spring up from?
 It's a good idea to hold Junior under your arm while you hug Veerle with me to put him in between you and me.

'Gueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! What the hell is that! Master and Prathi are squeezing me from both sides like a sandwich! It's painful! Whoop! It's going to pop out from underneath me!

 Thus, the bond with Veerle is confirmed and without any worries....

 Don't let your wedding to Platy get underway!
