Author's note: Welcome to another installment of Fluff week. Has everyone recovered from Valentines day yesterday? Are we feeling fluffed out? Or are yall ready for more? I want to apologize in advance that this one might not be as great as others are. I wrote this while dealing with a writers block. And like I have been, I'm killing to birds with one stone with this one. @iirocioii submitted this for my 1500 follower celebration. I am also using this for the square Wedding Day on my Blogiversary Bingo. I do hope that you guys enjoy this either way!
Feedback gives me life and motivation for future things!
Elijah Mikaelson has been many things over the course of a thousand years. A brother, a protector, and a friend. He's been loyal, deemed the noble one, and is a man of his word. Threatening, dangerous and even a killer when needed to be. But there was one thing that Elijah had hardly ever been. And that was nervous.
The feeling itself had only presented itself to him a number of times throughout his existence. But each time it had, centuries had gone by, making the feeling in his gut foreign once more. Sure he had been worried several times, but Elijah Mikaelson was hardly ever nervous. This time, it had been intensified that the calm demeanor he had on the outside was slowly cracking.
Elijah stood there at the altar, with his brother by his side, as he tried not to leave his spot and rush the double doors that were across the room. He hadn't seen Y/N in person in at least half a week thanks to his younger sister. Rebekah took her role as Maid of Honor seriously and ensured he didn’t see her before the wedding.
Phone calls and messages were all that were shared right up until the last minute when Klaus had told him it was time. And now that it had been time, the minutes that ticked by no longer felt like seconds in his life, but hours. And the patience to see his beloved was running thin.
It wasn’t long after that his ears had picked up her footsteps from beyond the door. A small smile pulled at his lips at the sound and even as he heard her heart pick up in pace. Knowing Y/N the nerves were getting to her in that moment.
On the other side of the door, Y/N’s fingers had been tapping against the bouquet of flowers she held. The nervous tick loud in her ears even though the music played around her. And if it hadn’t been for the Vampire standing next to her, she probably would have already bolted past the doors.
The tapping sound, followed by his sister scolding Y/N had caused Elijah’s smile to grow. At least he hadn’t been the only one who had been feeling nervous about the next several minutes.
This simple moment in time was something neither of them had ever expected to happen. His lifetime on this earth had proved time and time again how the women he’d given his heart to had been lost to the actions of his family. He never wanted that for Y/N, but she made it known she was there and she wasn’t going anywhere.
Being a witch, Y/N had her advantages. It was harder to be used as a pawn against the Mikaelsons when she could handle herself. It was only after they argued about her safety did Y/N make clear that she wouldn’t leave his side until he convinced her he didn’t love her or he personally killed her. Elijah couldn’t do either.
And here they were a year later. And as the music changed to signal the beginning of Y/N’s arrival, Elijah had been glad that she had been as stubborn as she was. He couldn’t see himself doing this with anyone else.
Even as he heard her footsteps approaching, he hadn’t turned just yet. He knew she wasn’t in sight just yet. That once she rounded that corner and he’d turn and take her in. And as he saw Klaus’s reaction change, he knew she was there.
And with a turn his eyes finally landed on her for the first time in a week. The first thing he noticed right away was the way she smiled at him when his eyes landed on her. Her eyes light up at the awed expression he had on his face as he took her in.
The way his mouth dropped slightly to the way his eyes seemed to be taking her in the moment he turned. Her dress and accessories only highlighted her beauty. And while he believed she had looked breathtaking in the dress, he couldn’t take his eyes off of her face.
Even as she came to a stop in front of him, he never once had taken his eyes off of her. He didn’t even notice the way her magic played in the air, allowing small bursts of light to dance around the two of them. His hand lifted for her to take and he watched as she grinned. This was it.
“Are you sure this is what you want?” Elijah asked with a small tug of his lips.
“After we leave here, you’re stuck with me, always and forever.” Her words caused him to chuckle as he led her up the few steps of the makeshift altar. And as they turned towards each other and Vincent began speaking, there was one thing that was certain.
If Y/N had never come stumbling into his life, he never would have known true happiness as he had, standing there with her.
