The Big Day

The big day had finally arrived. The day that Alex Cahill had waited for her entire life.  In only 10 hours she would be Mrs. Cordell Walker. As she rolled over in her bed, she peered at the clock that read 8:00. Practically leaping from the bed,  Alex ran into the bathroom, quickly showered, and hurriedly went to the kitchen to eat a quick bite before she and Sydney went to pick up her dress. After she picked up Sydney from her apartment, the two women headed to downtown Dallas to run the last errands that had to be done, before the anticipated event. 

Cordell Walker walked anxiously back to the porch. He had risen at 5:00, fed Amigo and Angel, done a heavy workout, and washed the Ram (this being only something that he would do on a special occasion). Walker headed upstairs to take a shower after his morning activities. As he showered, Walker thought about the day that he and Alex first met. She had drilled him in court that day. Alex found it so hard to believe that the Ranger had apprehended so many men alone. Even though he didn’t admit it at first, he knew that he was in love with that woman. He too couldn’t wait to get married today.

When he finished drying off, Walker went into the livingroom and sat on the couch. At the same time the door flew open and in walked Trivette. “Hey partner!

Are you ready?”

“How do you feel? Have you talked to Alex today?” What time do we have  to pick up our tuxes?” Before Trivette could say another word Walker interrupted him and said,  “What is this 20 questions?” Walker answered him by saying, ”Yes I’m  ready, my stomach is in knots, at 11:30, and no I haven’t talked to Alex today. I didn’t sleep much last night, but what do you expect?”

“Alex it looks great on you, will you stop worrying already!”

“I can’t help it Syd, I’m just sooooo nervous! I knew that I would be nervous, but I didn’t think that it would be this bad.”

“Relax Alex.” You are marrying the man you love in 3 hours.”

“3 hours! We have got to get a move on or I’m not going to be ready in time!”

As the clock rolled around to 4 o’clock, the 350 some odd guests began arriving.

In the groom’s room: Trivette, C.D., Gordon, and Walker were all pacing the floor. In the bride’s room: Sydney, Josie, Shelley, and Alex were frantically hustling around the room making sure Alex had everything that she needed.

“Dadgum Cordell, you look like you have been running a marathon!” You sure do look peeked!”

“Well C.D. what do you expect? I AM very nervous!”

The 3 handsome men walked to the altar to wait for the ceremony to start. When the music began to play the bridesmaids made their way up the aisle and then all eyes settled on the back of the room. There she was escorted by her father Gordon. The most beautiful bride that he had ever seen. His Bride. Her baby blue eyes were sparkling against the delicate white fabric of her dress. She was perfect in every way and she would be his wife in just a matter of minutes.

As they shared glances, the reverend announced that they had written their own vows to each other.

Alex, I can’t begin to tell you how much you mean to me. I know that everyone in this room and especially YOU know that I’m not very good at expressing my feelings, but I’m going to tell you here and now in front of all these people that you mean everything to me. You are my life. You are the woman that I have waited for my whole life and the woman that I want to have my children. I give you this ring as a token of my love and affection.

Alex could barely see for the tears that were forming in her deep blue eyes. Those were the words that she longed to hear from her cowboy.

Walker, You are the most stubborn and hard headed man that I have ever met.  That is only one of the reasons why I love you with all my heart. You are the love of my life. I trust you with my life. You are not just my lover, but you are my best friend. Our life together is going to be eventful (so to speak). I Love You. I give you this ring as a token of my love and affection.

“Would you please join hands?” “By the people of Dallas and by the state of Texas, I now  pronounce you husband and wife. Cordell, you may kiss your bride.” FINALLY!!!!!!
