if everyone will take their places *smiles*Elendabrand:
Right lets get this show on the road *grins*Jasmyn Shayde:
Hello Anyka, El *smiles warmly at each, in turn* you have come before the Gods, your family, and your friends, on this day, to become as one. I thank you, for asking me to be a part of such a noble occasion.
*smiles softly* El, do you stand before the Gods, and all of us, of your own free will, to take this Oath ? Elendabrand:
Most definitely... *looks at Anyka intensely*Jasmyn Shayde:
*nods, still smiling softly* and do you, Anyka, stand before the Gods, and all of us, of your own free will, to take this Oath?Anyka:
*smiles as she looks into El's eyes* yesJasmyn Shayde:
*smiles* please, join hands. *waits, then places her hands on their heads*
** Elendabrand grin seems to get bigger**
** Elendabrand carefully places Anykas hands in his.**Jasmyn Shayde:
*speaking soft, but clearly* We all come into the world, a lost soul, searching, to find that other part of ourselves. To become whole, once again. When two such souls, find each other, it is a sight to behold, indeed. And, when you make this Oath each other, you are binding your souls, back in to one.
*raises her gaze, to those assembled, then looks to El, and Anyka* you join together, and promise, never to sepate this soul again, to keep it strong, through both the good, and the bad, and to keep each other, through the happy times, and the sad.
** Elendabrand can't take his eyes off Anyka...** Jasmyn Shayde:
I believe, that they have written something, they would like to say to each other *takes a small step back*Jasmyn Shayde:
El ? would you go first ?Elendabrand:
*looks at Anyka* Do you mind my love...Anyka:
please do *smiles nervously*Elendabrand
*grins* Then I shall, thank you Jasmyne...
*Looks up and looks at the friends gathered* Where to start...
Anyka, when we first met we were but members of SR and you were quite a handful *grins*
I know I asked a lot of you in the beginning especially testing your patience.
But I little did I know that I had already fallen for you.
I can honestly say now that it was the best thing I ever did. Spending time with you, experiencing everything in Valorn with you and sharing our thoughts together
Gives me the most incredible strength and energy. I love being with you and waking up every day knowing that you are with me in spirit.
All that I am I promise and give to you without question.....
I will always be there for you and will try hard every day to keep you happy through good times and bad..
*looks deeply into Anyka's eyes* I love you, and will forever ! Elendabrand
*smiles at the congregation and nods to Jas*
** Anyka nods and looks at El with tears in her eyes and takes a deep breath*
** Elendabrand holds Anyka's hands tightly.**Anyka
El, the moment I met you, I knew there was something special about you, I knew i felt something, but I never imagined it would ever be this strong, this powerful.
When you asked me for my patience, I didnt think could do it, but my love for you then was already very strong. I wasnt going to let you go. I was going to fight for you, and I will always fight for you. Knowing that you are by my side all the time, wether in person, or in spirit has given me the greatest strength of all
Today, not only do i get to bond the man of my dreams, the love of my life, but also my best friend. I love you El, with all of my heart, all of my body, all of my soul, I will love you forever.
** Anyka feels warm tears running down her cheeks as she nods to Jas**
** Elendabrand smiles and gently lifts a hand and catches the tears.**
** Jasmyn Shayde smiles, wiping her own tears away** Jasmyn Shayde
*smiles, and nods* that was very beautiful *turns to El* El, do you have a ring, for Anyka ? If so, please, place the ring on her finger, and repeat after me ..
"I, El, take thee, Anyka, to be my bond mate, from this day forward, until time takes us away, to sit beside the Gods, joined, once again, in our love for each other.
** Elendabrand carefully places the ring om Anyka's finger**
Elendabrand concentrates intently...

** Sabrina Kinkle uses Johnnys sleve to wipe her eyes and nose**
** Jasmyn Shayde whispers to El, 'you need to repeat the vows'**
** Anyka smiles at El**Elendabrand
Oh my.. getting carried away with the moment..

Elendabrand 's Garnet Ring radiates 'Blessing of Cory`s Brilliant Light' Jasmyn Shayde
*smiles happily* These rings represent their love, and committment to each other, may it always stay strong.
*smiles gently* There is a blessing, where I am from, may I give it, as my bonding gift, to you both ?
*nods, and takes four colored ribbons, entwining them, one by one, around their hands* Let this burgundy ribbon, signfy their hearts, that now beat as one. The white, to represent, the purity, and peace, of their souls. This lavender, their love, and trust, for each other. And may this silver ribbon, bless their union, from this day, forward, for all time. Jasmyn Shayde
Kristian was unable to be here, so he asked me to read this to you *smiles warmly* "Elendabrand, you are my friend. And as such I know you to be a man of honor. I could not give such a woman as
Anyka to anyone less worthy. You know what a wonderful woman gives herself to you this day. But I would share this thought with you: Of all the places you have been, and all the things you have done thus far in your life; you have never been where you are about to enter, nor have you ever experienced what is about to happen. This noble woman is this day giving you entrance into her heart - the most sacred place you will ever tread. My Friend - tread gently. From this day forth you must be a better man than you have ever been - because of her love. You must be a kinder man - because of her gift to you. Never take her for granted, and she will fill your life with greater joy and happiness you have ever known. And that is worth all you can give.
** Anyka feels the tears start running down her cheeks again** Elendabrand
*nods* Thank you my friend I shall remember that ! Jasmyn Shayde
*turns to Anyka* Anyka, dear Anyka. Time does not allow for all I would say to you. You who have watched me grow from an initiate, introduced me to my profession, helped me find a guild family, and officiated at my own bonding. I cannot adequately express all you are to me - and to so many others. You have known sorrow, and now you have joy. You have known trial, and now you feel happiness. You have given so much of yourself to others, and now you have found someone who will give back to you. This day is your reward for all you have been through. This day is for you to feel the love of friends and family. This day is for seeing life, and love, and yourself in a new light - the light of eternity; for love is eternal. This day is yours. Never forget this day. God bless you both. In friendship and love, Kristian.
**Lady Lotus Blossomforth dabs at the tears running down her face** Jasmyn Shayde
Now *smiles warmly* by the powers placed upon me, by the Gods, I bind you both.
You may now kiss, as a newly bonded couple *steps back again, smiling softly*
** Elendabrand wraps both arms around Ankya lowering her slightly and plants a giant kiss right on the lips** Anyka
*takes El's hand and looks around* We want to thank you all for being here, and as a token of our appreciation we have a gift for you all....
El and I are very lucky to have found eachother *smiles at El* and we wanted you all to have these bags for your own luck, so you too may be as happy as we are
** Anyka nudges El gently**
** Elendabrand walks with Anyka to each guest individually and hands them their gift**
(The gifts were cloth pouches, to place on the Good Luck Bos' horns, to bring them as much luck as we feel we have)
Thank you everyone for making this such a wonderful day for us!
