Chapter Twelve: Union

Author's Note: Mas Y Menos make an appearance in this chapter. Along with Batman. Sorry if the Spanish incorrect, but I found out that Mas y Menos only speak Spanish. I used a site called Free Spanish Translation to translate English dialogue into Spanish. So enjoy! One more chappie after this! Then onto the third in the Aftermath Chronicles!

Two Months later...

The scene was similar to the wedding that took place a year earlier as Nightwing, Dick Grayson and Starfire, Kori Ander both recited the wedding vows. Then the preacher said to him, "Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife; for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health?"

Nightwing immediately and firmly answered, "I do."

The man turned and asked her he same question. "Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband; for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health?" Starfire looked at him.

"I do," she answered.

The preacher turned to Dick Grayson. He was the same preacher that had done Raven and Beast Boy's wedding. He was a little shocked and surprised when they had asked him to marry them. He was happy to comply and they were elated that he had time in his busy schedule to squeeze them in for a wedding.

"Then you may kiss your bride." Dick looked a little sheepish in front of the large crowd gathered there. "Well, go on, boy!" Dick and Kori did so with a sweet, loving passion as the crowd cheered and whistled. Turning around, they faced their family and friends.

"Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Mr. and Mrs. Dick Grayson." The cheering was so loud it echoed off the rooftop and reverberated minutes after the crowd went silent. There was much buzz about this wedding for weeks on end. After all, the adopted son of Bruce Wayne was marrying the Princess of Tamaran. Once at the reception, things seemed to die down a little.

Dick Grayson stood proudly beside his wife Kori as they were both congratulated by family and friends. Bruce Wayne made his way towards them, smiling. "Well, I should say, congratulations, Dick, Kori. This is a special day for both of you."

"Thank you, Bruce," Kori replied. "It was nice of you to come."

"You're welcome Kori." Bruce put a hand on his adopted son's shoulder. "Well, Dick, you've finally found someone to spend the rest of your life with. And I'd say that I'm impressed with what you've managed to do here at Jump City. I couldn't do any better if I were here myself."

"Thank you, Bruce. It means a lot to me when you say that."

"I know. It's just...I should have shown you more respect when you were younger. Given you more credit than I did." Bruce gave a sad sigh.

"Ah, that's all water under the bridge now. That's all the past and should be forgotten."

"Thanks. I'll leave you two love birds for now. I actually have to go back to Gotham." Bruce Wayne smiled and left. Cyborg, Beast Boy, Raven, Aqualad, Speedy, and Mas y Menos walked over to them. Bumblebee was there as well.

She was the first to speak, "Congratulations, Dick, Kori! You two look great!"

"Thanks," Dick said as Mas and Menos came forward to speak to him.

"!Felicitaciones! !Es sobre tiempo que usted dos consiguieron casados!" Meños smiled

"He says that it's about time you two got married," Cyborg smiled.

"Sabe siempre que usted dos hizo un par lindo." Mas laughed.

"He says he always knew you two made a cute couple, Cyborg translated.

"Adios, Amigos!" Mas said as he and Menos left their friends to return to their city.

Speedy smiled. "Well, old buddy, this is a big day for you."

"Oh yes, it really is." Nightwing, Dick Grayson smiled. "Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to come. Your city must keep you busy."

"Yeah it does," Tempest replied. "But we wouldn't miss this for the world."

"Thanks," Kori smiled.

The guests slowly trickled out of the church, leaving the five friendstogether. "Well," Beast Boy said happily, "This has been quite a day."

"Yeah, come on Beast Boy, Raven, I'm taking you guys to dinner...We should leave these two love birds to their honeymoon salad."

"Huh?" Beast Boy frowned.

"You know, /let us /alone?" Cyborg said, winking. Beast Boy and Raven caught the joke and both burst out laughing. Dick and Kori also caught onto the meaning and smiled quietly.

"Alright, we'll come," Beast Boy replied. "You two go on back to the Tower. We all won't be back for a /long /time." He gave Dick a sly smile, and then they left.

While Nightwing and Starfire returned to the Tower, Beast Boy, Raven and Cyborg went to a fancy restaurant. Smiling and laughing, they talked of the past, mainly about Nightwing and Starfire and their complex relationship. "So, what do you think they're doing now?" Cyborg asked.

"What do /you /think they're doing?" Raven asked.

"Oh, what married couples /do /on their wedding night," Cyborg laughed. "We all know that's what they've always wanted. To get married and have kids. Now they actually get the chance."

"Yeah, it's a good thing for them." Beast Boy said. He looked at his watch. "Well, it's getting late. We better go home. Little Mark has been asleep since the wedding started. Can you believe it? Two months old and he's kept me awake all night. This is the first time he's actually sleep for hours. Well, I need to get us home. Raven says he needs a diaper changed," he sniffed. "Wow, you /are /right about that smell! Let's get him home" Together, they walked out of the restaurant and drove home.

Cyborg was left alone feeling a little sad on this happy occasion. /When will it be my turn to find love? /He wondered as he drove the T-Car home. He would find that special someone someday, he knew. One day he would walk down that isle too. He just didn't know when.

Dick and Kori went back to the Tower, not saying much. Too overwhelmed by the moment, and the day's events, they were both wondering about the future.

Walking quietly into the living room, Dick Grayson swept his wife up into his arms, carrying her across the threshold. "After all this time," he murmured in her ear as he set her down, "I can /finally /show you how I feel."

"I know. So, where do you want to go?"

"My room's comfortable. Besides, we don't want them to walk in on us in here, do we?"

"No. That would not be good at all." Kori wrapped her arms around him, smiling. "I love you."

"I know," he replied. He began to kiss her, slowly; very gently he began to mover her backwards until they reached the entrance to his room. Dick pulled away, studying his wife.

"Well, tonight is going to be-"

"Absolutely glorious," Kori finished for him.

He pulled her into his arms again. "Couldn't have said it better myself." They resumed their kissing. Dick Grayson couldn't have been a happier man as he lowered his beautiful wife onto his bed. He kissed her deeply, his tongue sliding into her mouth as they quietly embraced each other. Things went from there as they contented themselves with spending the evening intimately for the first time as husband and wife.
