Anita's Secret
The wedding is near!
Chapter 22

Somewhere in a peaceful part of London, was a charming and a pretty busy Anglican church. It was the church where Victor and Anita were going to get married.

The white cart arrived at the church and Victor stepped out of it. His parents were already in the church, waiting for him. And, if everything was all right, their friends were there already too.
He lifted Hannah out of the cart and placed her onto the snowy ground. "Be good, honey. I'll see you in a few minutes."

Hannah nodded as Victor helped Anita to get out. "Thank you, Victor." she said as she looked at him.

Victor gave her a smile. "I'll see you in a moment." He gave her a kiss on her cheek before he turned around to get to the church. They didn't want to kiss each other on the lips before they would be official husband and wife.

Anita nodded and she turned towards the last car, which approached the church as Victor walked away. The car stopped near her and her parents and sister stepped out of it.
Jocelyn walked to her daughter and gave her a quick hug. "It'll be great." she said once again and she let her daughter go, so she could go to the church.

Stephan looked to Anita. "Well, this is the moment. Are you ready for it?"

"I have no choice if I want to marry the man I love." said Anita with a big smile.

Stephan laughed and he looked to Krista and Hannah. "Are you ready too?" Hannah and Krista nodded. "Let's go, then."

They walked into the church. Krista and Hannah in front and Stephan and Anita followed them.
The 'Bridal March' started to play as Anita and Stephan walked down the aisle. The friends and family were all silent. The only thing you heard was the clicking from Laura's camera.

When Stephan and Anita were near Victor, they stopped and Stephan turned towards Anita. "I love you, my dear daughter." he whispered and he went to his place next to Jocelyn.

Anita smiled and she walked towards Victor. It was finally time to get married to the man she loved.


After some hymns had been sung, the reverend asked for the rings. It was time for Victor and Anita to say their vows and place the rings around each other's fingers. Hannah stood up and she walked towards Victor and Anita.

"It is now time to say your vows." the reverend said and she looked towards Victor. "If you would be so kind to repeat the words after me, Mr. Volt."

Victor nodded and he repeated the words after the reverend. "In the presence of God and these our friends, I, Victor Thomas Jefferson Volt, take you, Anita Guinevere Knight, to be my friend, my lover, the mother of my children and my wife. I will be yours in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of sickness and in times of health, in times of joy and in times of sorrow, in times of failure and in times of triumph. I promise to cherish and respect you, to care and protect you, to comfort and encourage you, and stay with you, for all eternity."

Anita had to gulp down her tears before she could say anything. The reverend was so kind to wait for her to be ready before she read Anita's vows. "In the presence of God and these our friends, I, Anita Guinevere Knight, take you, Victor Thomas Jefferson Volt, to be my friend, my lover, the father of my children and my husband. I will be yours in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of sickness and in times of health, in times of joy and in times of sorrow, in times of failure and in times of triumph. I promise to cherish and respect you, to care and protect you, to comfort and encourage you, and stay with you, for all eternity."

Hannah held out the pillow with the rings after she heard Victor and Anita say their vows. Victor and Anita placed the rings around each other's fingers and they looked to the reverend, because there was just one thing left to do.

The reverend smiled and she looked to Hannah. "Hannah Knight, your Daddy wants to ask you something."

Hannah nodded and she looked to Victor. "In the presence of God and these our friends will you, Hannah Knight, take me, Victor Thomas Jefferson Volt, to be your friend and your father?  I will be there for you in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of sickness and in times of health, in times of joy and in times of sorrow, in times of failure and in times of triumph. I promise to cherish and respect you, to care and protect you, to comfort and encourage you, and stay with you, for all eternity."

The reverend smiled. Victor and Anita had asked her if Victor could say a special vow for Hannah, to, symbolically, ask her permission to be her father for the rest of her live. "What is your answer to that, Hannah?"

"I will, Daddy!" said Hannah with a big smile and Victor gave her a smile back. He placed the ring around her finger and he gave her a hug.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I give you now Mr and Mrs Volt and Hannah Volt." The reverend looked to Victor. "You may now kiss your bride."

Victor looked to Anita and gave her a kiss on her lips. It was a long and romantic kiss and the crowd started to cheer.

The reverend looked to Victor and Anita. "If you would follow me to the vestry, then we can take care of the paperwork."

Victor and Anita nodded and they walked to the vestry. It wasn't really big; it was big enough for a young married couple and a reverend. The reverend walked behind the desk and she looked to Victor and Anita as they signed the papers. It weren't only the wedding papers; there was also the official adoption paper, so Victor would be officially Hannah's father. And there was one which would change Hannah's name legally to 'Hannah Knight Volt'.
"Congratulations, you are now officially Mr and Mrs Volt and Hannah is your legal child now." said the reverend with a big smile. She loved it when a wedding went alright.

The smile on the faces of Victor and Anita couldn't be bigger. They went back into the sanctuary area and walked to the doors of the church. Outside were their friends and family and they threw rice towards the young couple.
They made some pictures with their friends and family before they moved towards the next location to have their wedding breakfast.


Victor, Anita and Hannah were the last ones to arrive at the party location. Since their wedding was completed right after noon, Victor and Anita decided to have a so-called wedding breakfast. There were lots of different things to be eaten. Not only sandwiches, but also roasted chestnuts and they had hot cocoa.

The area was decorated with fake snow, Christmas lights and even some reindeers and snowmen. It was all magical and it looked like a winter-wonderland.

Everyone took their seat and soon they had their lunches. Every guest was enjoying the wonderful lunch. And while everyone was eating, Victor stood up and asked for attention. "Dear friends and family," he started and everyone became quiet, "first of all, I want to thank you for being here. It means a lot to me and Anita that you could come to our wedding. And second, I want to say something and I want to propose a toast. Anita and I know each other for five years now and I have to admit, those were the five most wonderful years of my live. The last year was really magical and I can't wait to share lots and lots of years together with Anita and my daughter Hannah!" Victor grabbed his mug of hot chocolate and held it up. Others followed his example. "A toast to our marriage and our wonderful family and friends."

The word 'cheers' came out of everybody's mouth and they started to drink. Anita stood up as well and she looked to Victor. "I know our marriage will be wonderful, but it was a fantastic speech. Thank you, Victor."

"I love you, Mrs Volt."

Anita laughed and she moved closer to Victor. "I love you too, Mr Volt." she whispered and they gave each other a kiss.


After the lunch, there was more than enough time to party. A lot of people were on the dance floor, while others were talking to either Victor or Anita or just sitting at a table.

"Oh, come on, Dad! It's a wedding and you suppose to dance at a wedding."

Krista looked to her father. For some reason, he didn't want to dance and he started to make up some excuses. "I really don't think I should be dancing, Krista. I hurt..."

"Admit it, Dad. You are just afraid to lose your face once you're on the dance floor."

Stephan looked up. That was one thing you shouldn't say to him. "Alright, you want to dance with the old man? Well, you can dance with the old man." he stood up and he grabbed Krista's hand to take her to the floor.

Jocelyn just laughed as her husband rushed away. "It looks like my father-in-law is eager to dance." sounded next to her and Jocelyn looked up. "Care for a little dance, 'Mum'?"

"Only when you promise me that you will never call me 'Mum'." said Jocelyn and she took Victor's hand.

Victor laughed as they walked to an empty spot to dance. "I'm just teasing you. I don't think I'm ready to call you Mom, or mother or something like that." said Victor as they started to dance.

"Good, because it will be weird to hear you calling me that." Jocelyn looked towards her daughter, who was talking to Marian. "What do you think of your own wedding?" she asked Victor as she looked at him again.

"It's wonderful. Everything went alright and we are wearing our rings around our fingers. And of course, the papers are signed. That's all we need now."

Victor felt a tap on his shoulder and he turned around. In front of him was Stephan. "I think the DJ wants to talk to you."

Victor just nodded and he walked towards Anita. "Dear, I think it's time." he whispered into her ear and Anita smiled.

They walked both to the dance floor and Victor placed his hands onto her hips as Anita placed her arms onto his shoulders. As their first dance song, they had chosen the beautiful and slow song 'Memories' from Enya. For them, it felt as the perfect song.
Throughout the dance, there was silence from the other guests. Anita and Victor looked in each other's eyes and they knew that this love was for ever.

After the song was finished, their friends and family started to clap and Victor walked towards the DJ. He had just one special gift for Anita and their families. Victor grabbed a microphone and looked to the crowd. "I want to ask if my special lady wants to come forward for a special gift." said Victor and Anita gave him a surprised look. She walked towards Victor and Victor grabbed a seat. "I want my loving wife to just sit back and enjoy this special gift."

As Anita sat down, Victor walked towards Hannah and he softly grabbed her hands. "Just like we practiced." he whispered and Hannah nodded. The DJ started to play a different song and Hannah stepped onto Victor's feet. And together they started to dance.

As she saw her daughter and her husband dancing, Anita had to grab a tissue. It was a sweet song called 'Cinderella'. And Anita knew the lyrics. Even though just the first part of the song really applied to their lives now, it did reflect on the relationship between Victor and Hannah. They had a father-daughter relationship already and this wedding would make that relation only stronger and stronger.

The song started to end and Hannah rushed towards Anita. "I love you, Mommy. Please don't cry."

Anita laughed through her tears. "It's alright, honey. And I love you too."

Victor walked towards his favourite girls and he wiped Anita's tears away. "I'm glad you loved it, Mommy." he whispered.

"I couldn't ask for more, Daddy." replied Anita with a small teasing smile. "Thank you."


The party started to end. Most guests were already gone and only the families were left now.

"We will see you soon. But you have to enjoy your honeymoon together." said Mildred and she gave Anita a hug.

"You won't see us for a week." promised Anita. She and Victor had made a deal that they wouldn't go to their parents for a week, during their honeymoon.

"We will take Hannah with us for now." whispered Jocelyn and she looked to her granddaughter, who was already asleep.

Anita nodded and together with Victor, they said goodbye to their families. They stepped into the cab; which would take them home.

"It was truly wonderful." whispered Anita, once the cab started to drive.

Victor smiled and he gave her a kiss onto her temple. "But I only want to do this once."

Anita yawned. "That's fine by me." She looked to her husband. "I can't wait to be home."

"Me neither." said Victor and he grabbed her hand. "I love you, Anita Volt."

Anita started to laugh. "How many times are you going to say that today?"

"A million times, or so I try to do that."

"In that case… I love you too, Victor Volt."
This is the last chapter. I can't promise you that there will be one complete new story after this one about Hannah, but I can promise you that I won't stop writing about Hannah. There will be just some small stories about the little girl and her family.
