Chapter 9: The Big Day
Sunlight streamed in through my window and woke me up. I smiled, remembering that today was the day of my marriage to Mai. I got out of bed and into the bath. After bathing myself, I was putting on my Firelord robes when Aang came in to help. He was wearing his monk robes and a medallion.
"Good morning Aang," I said.
"Morning Zuko," he replied smiling. After tying my robes, I put my hair in its usual topknot with the Firelord headpiece in it. I took a deep breath and walked out.
All the guests had arrived. I could see the bridesmaids wearing matching pink hanboks and their hair done up in a bun with flowers. My groomsmen were standing there too, wearing matching orange robes. Then, I could see Mai's father escorting Mai. I stared in awe. She looked dazzling. She wore a red strapless dress, a golden veil and her face had the right amount of makeup. She carried a bouquet of fire lilies and roses. Her hair was in the Firelady style. Mai had golden jewelry adorning her and had a smile on her face as she approached me.
"You look beautiful," I whispered. Then, Fire Sage Shyu began talking, making us say our wedding vows.
"Firelord Zuko, do you take this lovely woman as your lawfully wedded wife?"
"I do," I replied.
"And do you, Mai, take this man as your lawfully wedded husband?"
"I do," Mai replied.
"You may now kiss the bride," Shyu announced. I lifted the veil and kissed Mai. At the moment my lips touched hers, the crowd cheered and clapped. When my lips left hers, we turned to the crowd.
"This is your cue to kneel down," I whispered. Mai knelt down as the Fire Sages came with the Firelady headpiece.
"All hail Firelord Zuko's new wife Firelady Mai!" they announced. The crowd cheered and clapped. I could see Mom looking proud and Mai's parents looking proud. Once this was done, we headed inside the palace for the reception.
The reception will have some dance programs in it!
