Kevin looked at Jerald weighing the
remark that he had just made about Bron’s attire.
Kevin turned to A.J. ignoring the girls who were walking
up the make shift aisle, “Tell me you did not pick
out what she is wearing.”
A.J. smiled, “Nope, Kaos did.”
“Huh?” Kevin leaned over, looking
further down the line at his brothers to see that
they were all wearing very goofy grins. “I swear
if you guys…” Kevin was interrupted by the sound
of the wedding march. Quickly he turned to look back
down the aisle as he heard the chuckling from his
brothers. There she stood at the end of the aisle
with Jake on one arm and Mc on the other. She was
as white as a ghost and it showed because the dress
was cream colored. “Well now!” he exclaimed loud
enough for this brother’s and the girls to here.
Jesus she’s wearing a corset, he screamed in his head.
Where’s the freaking rest of it to of it. It looks
like silk from up here. Oh no, not silk. What is
she wearing under it? Slammed around his mind. Suddenly
he turned to Nick and snarled, “Where’s the rest of
Nick gave Kevin the eyebrows that
Kevin was famous for, “That’s it.”
Kevin looked back to Bron who was
almost frozen in her tracks. She saw Kevin’s reaction
to the dress and became giddy with excitement. Ha-Ha,
gottcha Lurch. Bron clutched the small bouquet of
coral and yellow roses that Gillian had given her.
Damn he’s got that long coat on again, I love that
coat, she whined to herself. He’s not happy about
this dress, she pondered.
“I told you he would go nuts,” Mc
whispered in her ear.
“Well to bad,” Bron answered him.
“It’s my wedding too and I love it. He’s the one
pushing this whole thing.”
Kevin stood there in awe. She looked
beautiful but provocative, not what he had expected
from Bron. A slow smile began to show on his face
and he watched the tension leave Bron. Okay it’s
not the end of the world, he groaned. Nick must have
decided to dress up is favorite fic writer ‘Kaylin’.
Bron hesitated for a second until Kevin raised his
hand and beckoned her join him, with a small wave.
Come on darlin’, you can do this, he said to himself.
Bron gave him a slight smile and
continued to walk towards him. As she joined him,
there were a few “Awws,” from the people behind them.
Kevin was reassuring his bride that it was okay.
As Bron joined Kevin he lightly grabbed
her hand, “Couldn’t decide?” Bron moved her head
back and forth slightly, indicating no. “You look
beautiful,” he whispered as her hand shook in his.
“But I’m surprised that you are ah, revealing so much,”
he leaned over and grumbled. Kevin’s eyes immediately
shot down the bodice of the corset. Oh my God any
lower and they’ll be paying her to take it off.
From the end of the line and out
Nick came, “We like it.”
Kevin’s head darted down the line,
“Why, is this a wedding or are you just setting her
up for a new visual?”
Bron clamped down on her lips with
her teeth to keep the laughter from coming out. Snickers
were heard from everyone in the bridal party, even
Jerald was laughing. The minister was confused and
Tim was not pleased at all. This talk did not belong
at this setting.
Tracy broke the silence as she uttered,
“I can’t wait for that one.” Kevin, Jerald, and Tim
all turned to look at Tracy as Bron actually chuckled
loudly. “Not you too,” Kevin uttered. Tracy’s face
turned red at the comment. Kevin turned back to Bron,
“You stop corrupting my family.”
“She didn’t, mom sent it to me,”
The brothers Richardson were all
astonished at the announcement. Kevin turned to see
his mother sitting directly behind him. She was smiling
at him with a twinkle in her eye. Kevin shook his
head as he made a mental note to speak to his mother
and his wife afterwards. Some people I know are going
to get a new freakin hobby, he whined.
“Are we ready to begin,” Tim focused
all of his energy on the giggling wedding party.
Kevin nodded a yes.
At hearing the words, Bron began
to shake from nerves. Kevin carefully wrapped one
arm around her waist and pulled her closer to him.
He then rested his hand on her lower back. It wasn’t
the traditional bride and groom stance, but it worked
for them. He didn’t want her to run screaming from
the room. The best thing for her right now was physical
contact with him.
Idly he began to finger the strings
of the corset that rested just above her bottom.
Abruptly he felt an unexpected pain in his foot.
He looked down to see that Bron had jammed her foot
into his. What the hell was that for? He wondered,
as the minister was speaking. His hand stopped moving
over her corset and she removed her foot from his.
Oh, didn’t like that did you. Tough, you tease my
ass in front of over a hundred friends and family,
you get what you get, he mused to himself.
Bron turned her head and glared at
him as he smirked back at her. Let’s get this over
with; because I’m going to hit you so hard Master,
you’ll feel it for a week, she groaned in her head.
Neither one of them had heard the words that were
being spoken until it was Tim’s turned to speak.
His voice snapped them both back to attention. Tim
said a small prayer mentioning Kevin’s dad and how
happy he would be today if her were here.
Bron quickly glanced to Kevin and
saw the tear trickle down his face. She slowly reached
up and wiped it away for him. Jerald knew that Kevin
would have wished nothing more than for their dad
to be there today. Bron softly squeezed Kevin’s hand
and tapped her heart with her free hand. Kevin meekly
smiled to her knowing she understood what was going
on in his heart and his head. The pastor began to
recite the ceremony as he saw the knowing exchange
between the two of them.
The minister asked, “Who gives Bronwyn
Lynn to be married to Kevin Scott? The minister focused
his gaze on Bron, “I’m a little old for that,” came
flying out of her in an acid tone. Kevin laughed
quietly, as did the rest of them.
Mc spoke with merriment, loud enough
for the entire room to hear his voice, “I do, again.”
Bron’s bitch switch flipped on and Kevin’s was prepared.
His hand grabbed her left elbow to prevent her from
moving. “Don’t,” he warned her.
The minister watched, boy what a
strange thing that was. “Do you Bronwyn take Kevin
to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to
hold from this day forward?” he asked.
“I do,” Bron answered respectfully.
Do you promise to love, honor, cherish,
and obey Kevin for better or for worse, for richer
or for poorer, in sickness and in health?”
Kevin grinned at her. Oh this should
be good. He watched her face scrunch up as the word
obey was spoken. A snicker came from Nick and A.J.
too. They were both thinking the same thing; you’re
dreaming Kev if you think that will ever happen.
Thank you Tim, he said to himself as Kevin smiled
at his brother.
Bron had thought about opening her
mouth and telling the minister and Tim to stuff it.
She felt pressure on her elbow and turned to Kevin.
Oh look, it’s dark side Kevin. The wordless communication
was simple, shut up and answer the man and you better
not screw up.
“I do,” Bron grumbled as she looked
at Tim. Tim gave her a knowing grin. Yep, you’re
the cause of that one and will talk later Mister,
she hissed to herself. Obey, obey my ass bud, she
continued her rant in her head.
The minister smiled at her, Oh these
young ones always take that out of context, he groaned
internally. “And, forsaking all others, will you
remain only unto Kevin for as long as you both shall
“I will,” Bron replied.
Kevin was grinning from ear to ear
by now. They were half way there and he was almost
home. I got her, she’s mine now, he was yelling to
Kevin repeated the same vows except
for one omission in his. The word obey hadn’t appeared
in his vows. Of course they never did either. Bron
made a mental note to get even with Pastor Tim as
soon as possible.
Kevin began to shift in his shoes.
The hardest part was over with for them; he just wanted
to get it finished before something happened to stop
it. The marriage license was signed and the vows
The minister began speaking again
to them and the gathering behind them. “Traditionally,
the marking of the passage to status of husband and
wife is marked by the exchange of rings. These rings
are a symbol of the unbroken circle of love. Love,
freely given has no beginning and no end, no giver
and no receiver for each is the giver and each is
the receiver. May these rings always remind you of
the vows you have taken.”
Mentally Kevin was chastising himself,
he wouldn’t get a ring as much as he had wanted one.
He was more than happy and proud to call the woman
next to him his wife. However, he hadn’t really given
her the opportunity to get one for him. Gently he
slid the ring on her finger and turned to the minister.
Bron tugged on the arm that had automatically
dropped back to Kevin’s side. She held his large
hand in her’s and gently slid the ring on the second
to last finger of his left hand. The smile that emanated
from Kevin could have lit up Las Vegas by itself.
He didn’t know how or who but he was overwhelmed as
he began to cry again.
The entire room heard the collective
gasp from the wedding party. By Bron producing a
ring for Kevin it had sealed their marriage. It was
an acceptance and admission of the love she held for
the man that stood next to her.
“By the power vested in me I now
pronounce you husband and wife. Ladies and gentlemen
may I present Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Richardson. You
may kiss your bride.”
“Oh darlin’,” he whispered. Kevin’s
hands automatically went to her face as he tilted
her head back. Bron saw the twinkle in his eyes,
“No tongue,” she laughed. He dropped his lips to
her’s and kissed her deeply with tongue and way too
“Back off Kev, let her breathe,”
came from Howie who was laughing loudly with everyone
else at Bron’s comment and Kevin’s conduct.
Kevin did as he was told and stood
up, straight and tall. His mother smiled as she watched
how proud he was of Bron. Kevin began walking back
down the aisle and speaking to his family along the
way. Bron said nothing as she walked beside him.
Once in the back of the room the wedding party joined
them for an impromptu receiving line.
Bron looked down the line, glaring.
She was looking for one person and one person only.
There you are, she grinned to herself. You may be
a Minister but you’re a Richardson first. He was
standing at the end of the wedding party with Tracy.
Bron watched him speak to Brian’s parents and brother.
Bron felt her hand being squeezed as she backed up
and turned to Kevin. “Behave yourself Witch,” he
grinned at her.
“I will Master,” she grinned.
As the receiving line cued up, the
chairs were moved around the room. Tables quickly
joined the chairs. Bron’s face lit up when she saw
the candles and her favorite colored roses being placed
on the table. Bron leaned back almost falling if
Kevin hadn’t grabbed her waist.
“Thanks D, Gillian,” she smiled.
“No problem,” Howie answered for
both of them giving her a wink. Kevin gave Howie
a thumbs up for the smile that had crossed Bron’s
face. As the room was transformed into a reception,
Bron became enchanted and light hearted. Kevin couldn’t
get over everything that his family and friends had
done for them. All of his favorites and Bron’s were
somehow worked into the room down to the smallest
detail. Kevin’s eyes settled on Nick, who flashed
him a grin. Kevin stuck his tongue in his cheek and
gave Nick a grin. “Party ain’t over Little Man,”
he spoke. Nick took it as it was intended. It meant
we’re gonna talk and you’re gonna listen.
Bron was introduced to more people
and family then she ever could remember. She was
getting edgy and Kevin sensed it. He quickly made
introductions to people from the tour that she didn’t
know or hadn’t met. Bron spied Fatima with Margie
and breathed a sigh of relief. They made there way
to her and grinned. “How are you holding up?” Fatima
Bron looked at her, “I want to run
screaming out of here,” she groaned.
“She’s doing fine,” Kevin butted
into the exchange. “
I have a surprise for you later,”
Margie whispered in her ear. Kevin scowled as he
watched but couldn’t hear what was going on.
“Hey Train, does your wife dance?”
Fatima inquired with a big cheesy grin on her face.
“No,” he answered with an acerbic
“Not what I heard,” she giggled as
she walked away with Margie.
Bron took a gulp of air as Kevin
settled his arm around her shoulder. It was his Aunt
Jackie, Uncle Harold, and his cousin Herald. “Relax,
they’ll love you. They’re just like Brian,” he spoke
“Oh great, I really need another
prankster,” she groaned. Kevin smiled as he introduced
them. “Bron it is so nice to finally meet you. I
have heard so much about you,” Jackie spoke sweetly
“Oh I bet you have,” Bron laughed
at her. The woman was easy to talk to.
“Well it’s has been nice things,
honest,” Jackie grinned at her. Kevin smiled, his
aunt had a way for relaxing people into a conversation.
Kevin introduced her to his uncle and cousin. Bron
was extremely restrained and he didn’t know why.
Kevin watched his uncle and cousin survey his bride
from head to toe and then nodded approvingly towards
Kevin. As they walked away Bron turned to Kevin,
“Did I pass the damn inspection,” she groaned.
Kevin snickered, “Listen, they just
want to know who fired their best friend and then
hired him back.” Bron looked at him confused. “Frank,
the contractor,” Kevin uttered.
“I didn’t hire him back,” Bron spoke.
“No but your partner did,” Kevin
said as he raised her eyebrows at her waiting for
the sparks to fly.
Her body jerked and he grabbed on,
“Wait and do it later.” Bron’s eyes were flashing
away and Andre walked up to him. Kevin hadn’t figured
out, but somehow someone had invited Andre to do pictures
for them. Andre called the bride and groom over.
He introduced himself to Bron, who took an immediate
liking to the man. He explained that he would do
a few formal portraits but that he wanted to capture
mostly informal shots. Andre looked at Bron, “He’s
a private man, not a formal one,” he whispered. Bron
chuckled, “Oh I know.”
As Andre motioned the bridal party
together he explained what he wanted. Pictures were
posed for and snapped for the Bridal party. Then
Andre wanted family shots. Bron was placed in the
middle of the Richardson boys and Tim was standing
next to her. Bron was trying hard to control herself.
It was the perfect opportunity. Then Andre said he
wanted the entire family. Bron smiled broadly with
a twinkle in her eye. Andre thought her expression
was priceless and took the picture. Kevin was seriously
worried. Only one thing made Bron smile like that,
she was up to something. Brian and his family joined
the picture. Bron spoke very loudly, “Tim those
vows were priceless. I think I need to thank you
Alarm bells went off in Brian first
as he grabbed Tim’s coat and pulled him out of her
reach. “Whoa!” came out of Kevin as he grabbed both
of her arms. “Don’t you dare, he’s a minister, he’s
married, and he’s my brother.”
Andre continued to take the shots
as Kevin restrained his bride and Brian had horror
written all over his face. Brian looked at Tim, “If
she ever says that again to you, run the other way!”
The picture taking session was being
watched by Kevin’s other brothers and the girls.
Nick was cracking up at the looks plastered on Kevin
and Brian’s face. Bron stood triumphantly in the
center. The pictures were completed and the other
brothers took their spots with the bride and groom.
More pictures were taken. After that all the families
were united for one large group shot. Nick watched
Brian pull Tim and Jerald aside and have a conversation
with them. Brian was pointing to Nick and then Bron.
Bron caught it and flashed Tim a smile. Tim’s face
paled as he looked at Bron. “Stop scaring my brother,”
Kevin coughed as he pretended to clear his throat.
The giggles came from the fellas as they stood next
Once the pictures were over Kevin’s
brothers again joined them. “Bron you can thank me
if Kevin will let you,” Jerald chuckled.
“Forget it,” Kevin spoke as he grabbed
Bron’s hand and walked towards the table up front.
“I’m hungry,” he mumbled.
“That’s a surprise,” Bron said dryly.
Everyone sat for dinner. The food
was wonderful and again both Bron and Kevin realized
how much effort had been put into this affair. Kevin
thought he had died and gone to heaven. Every food
that he had ever stated was one of his favorites was
put before them on tables. Tim said a small prayer
before the meal began, “Get grazing, Lurch,” Bron
chuckled at him.
Once the meal was finished the tables
and chairs were removed while people mingled around
the room. A stage was set up as well as a dance floor.
Bron watched as DJ equipment was moved in. “Kevin,
I don’t like this.”
“Hey they have done wonderful so
far, don’t worry,” he answered her uneasiness. Kevin
was watching the gathering at the back of the bar.
Interesting, must be pay off time. He was upset that
he didn’t have a chance to lay his bet down. I would’ve
cleaned up, he surmised. Jerald was grinning away
with his hand out as Kevin saw members of his group
and the tour walk up to both Nick and him. Looks
like Kaos got in on the action too.
Bron searched the room as Bounce
began running around the room with Tim’s kids. “I’ll
be right back,” she said as she stood up and walked
to her daughter. Kevin watched her skirt swish as
she walked away from him. I wonder what’s under all
that silk, he moaned. Bron was trying to settle down
Bounce with not much luck. He slid his chair back
and ambled over to them. “Behave Kaylin or you can
go to bed right now,” he spoke to her with a tone
not much unlike a father.
Andy joined them quickly, “I’ll take
over now and watch them.” Bounce frowned at Andy
and rolled her eyes. “You heard the man, behave or
you’re going to bed,” Andy reminded her.
Bounce stormed away from both of
them with Tim’s kids right behind her. Andy eyes
quickly followed her. “Andrew go easy on her,” Bron
snapped at him.
“Easy, easy, you go any easier on
her and she’ll be telling you what to do.”
Kevin lightly placed a hand on her
shoulder, “I think he’s doing just fine.”
Bron grimaced at Kevin, “You would,”
and walked away. Kevin followed her. Kevin turned
back and gave Andy an approving nod.
As Bron walked she noticed a suspicious
looking group of people at the bar. Jerald and Nick
were smiling away. Oh, I see. Slowly she made her
way through the crowd casually speaking to everyone.
She pushed her way through and stood next to Mary.
“Wassup?” Bron asked, as cash was discriminately
placed in pockets and such, out of sight.
“Nothing,” Nick grinned.
“Oh, really. How much did you make?”
Bron grinned. The crowd laughed as both Nick and
Jerald reached into their pockets. The money began
to exchange hands until the deals were finished.
Bron glanced to both of them. She quickly reached
out and snagged the cash from both of their hands.
“Some for the ocean and some for JWR. It’s such a
nice donation. I’m sure Kevin will be so happy Jerald.”
A deep laugh could be heard from behind her and she
saw Kevin totally amused with her actions. “Hi honey,
look what your brother has for JWR.” Kevin’s laughter
ensued again. Bron walked away to find Vicky and
Jim, who worked for Kevin’s foundation, to give them
“You better get your bride under
control. Go get my money back!” Jerald demanded.
“Hey messing with Bron and money is not smart. Trust
me.” Kevin laughed even harder as Mc and Stevie joined
Nick grinned, “You won’t miss it
Jerald and it’s for a good cause.” Nick glanced Kevin,
“Are you mad at me?”
Kevin reached over and grabbed Nick.
“Nope. I wanted to say that I love
“Thanks Train,” Nick smiled. “Gotta
go, I have work to do.” They watched Nick saunter
off full of himself knowing that he had made Kevin
happy. Kevin glanced to Brian unsure of what the
statement meant. Brian smiled, “Hey Mr. D.J.,” as
he sang to him.
Kevin chuckled, “Oh great,” as he
left to find his bride.
