7.29: Husband & Wife

Note: Some NSFW screenshots near the end, including nudity.

—————————-

So… Gigi and I got married yesterday.

Holy shit. That is so fucking weird to write.

But pretty freaking amazing too.

I still can’t really believe it though.

That gorgeous, strong, and incredible woman snoring over there in that bed…

Is my wife.

Yesterday still feels like it was a dream or something. I mean, it definitely wasn’t the wedding I’d always imagined I’d have someday.

But it was perfect anyway.

It was just like I said before — the second I looked at Gigi and said “I do”, all that crap I was worrying about before just disappeared. The only thing that mattered was her.

And I’ll be honest… I’d been pretty freaking nervous leading up to the wedding. Mostly because of our families.

Our parents all took the news a little hard, I guess. Including the part about moving to the US (but at least nobody’s heads exploded like I thought they would?). Once the initial shock wore off though, they were a lot more calm about it, thank God. They were even happy for me. And they still have a few more months before they have to worry about the move anyway.

It was the wedding that everybody’s been going on and on about for the past few weeks. I can’t even tell you how many times we’ve gotten the freaking third degree about whether we’re “doing it for the right reasons”. We had to deal with so many lectures from Mama and Dev and Papa and Rubi… They were treating us like we were little kids or something. Mama and I even got in a pretty big fight about it.

Plus Gigi’s parents were pretty damn shocked too. And for some reason, they refused to believe that this was Gigi’s idea. They were making it out like I’m some kind of mustache-twirling villain out to steal their daughter or something. It was really ridiculous. And I’m pretty sure her dad was convinced we were really doing it because I got her pregnant or something. Yeah, that was fun to try and deal with.

I was so scared that our wedding would basically be ruined by all this stupid drama. I felt so sick about it, right up til that morning.

But I dunno what changed. Maybe it was just seeing us up there saying our vows or something. Or maybe they finally realized that this is our life, and it’s what we both want.

No matter what the reason was, in the end, they were all just so happy for us.

And was so happy having them all there for us too. It meant everything to me to see everybody coming together like that and finally supporting us.

Especially Mama and Papa.

I heard them talking after the ceremony about how fast I’ve grown up and how scary this whole thing is… But about how proud they are of me too. All that cheesy stuff. Mama started crying. Then Papa gave her a hug.

I hadn’t seen them do that in a long, long time.

And I guess knowing we’re leaving for the US in just a couple months helped make it all feel even more special. It was like this one last awesome day where all the people we love got to come together and be happy. To celebrate me and Gigi and the next step of our lives together.

I just wish Opi could have been there. He was the only thing missing. I think we could all feel it.

It’s been over a year since he died, but some days still hurt like hell. He was more than just my Opa… He always felt like another Papa too.

With him gone, I’m the last real Rosebrook left in my whole family. It’s all up to me now. I’m the one who gets to carry on his family’s name… his legacy.

I just wanna make him proud.

And I really think he would be, if he could see me now. He’d want me to be happy with Gigi and go after my dream. I mean, he went after HIS all those years ago. He worked his ass off for it! And it totally paid off.

I was really glad we could have dinner at his restaurant after the ceremony. I know it sounds cheesy, but it really felt like we had a piece of him there with us or something.

It helped make yesterday feel even more perfect.

It really ended up being such an amazing day, but it all went by so fast. The whole thing was basically over before we knew it.

We didn’t spend the night at a hotel or anything. Once it was all over, we just came back home to my apartment… Well, our apartment now, I guess. Gigi’s gonna live with me full time now, until we head to the US. As soon as our marriage license gets filed, we’re sending in all the paperwork for my visa.

And then, in less than four months, we’ll be in Brindleton Bay. Together.

And speaking of together, we were both so freaking giddy when we got home last night… I don’t think either of us could really believe we’d done it — we’re married now. Husband and wife. Together. Forever. How freaking awesome is that?!

We decided not to waste any time — I mean, it was our wedding night. That only happens once in your life, right? We were practically ripping each other’s clothes off the second we got through the door.

We didn’t even make it to the bedroom.

Well, not for the first time, anyway.

And then we went to go clean up after, and…

It was seriously one of the best nights of fucking I think we’ve ever had. It was so hot and fun and it just felt… different, somehow. Which I know makes no sense. Signing a piece of paper shouldn’t make sex feel any better or different or anything… But I swear to God, it did.

We’ve both always liked things a little rough… But I was really happy Gigi didn’t ask me to tie her down or make her call me ‘sir’ or any of that other roleplaying stuff we usually do. Not that I don’t love all that… I totally do.

But honestly? I love it the most when we don’t have to pretend. When we can just be ourselves.

It felt real, y’know? We were just Phoenix and Gigi. Husband and wife. Fucking each other’s brains out and just… enjoying each other. It was perfect.

And I just know the rest of our lives together will be too. I don’t know what I was so worried about before.

Leaving my home and my family behind for the next few years is gonna hurt like hell.

But I’m gonna have my beautiful wife right beside me through it all.

And I know we’ll be okay.

  1. Glad Phee isn’t regretting it so far! 🙂 He seems happy and I’ll not ruin the party by being a party pooper. But I think he might regret it a little later because he rushed it. We’ll just wait and see..

  2. Awww. He seems happy. But one thing that struck a chord with me and maybe I’m reading too much into it, is the way he referred to their lovemaking as fucking….he never once said he loved her or that he was making love to her. They always had a pretty wild sex life, but I don’t know. That’s one area where they totally seem to have it together. But maybe it’s just sex and not making love. Maybe that’s why it felt different for him… I hope so. But I fear everyone’s right….and there are rough waters ahead, but aren’t there normally a few bumps in the road for newly married couples? Dang it, why can’t this just be a short gen and he’s already found his HEA!

    1. Interesting observation! I think in the case of Phee’s word choice, it has more to do with his age, and the type of sex he and Gigi usually have. He definitely loves her very much, I can promise you that! ❤️

      And hey, this could still be his HEA romance-wise! Who knows what could wait for him in B.B…

    LOLOLOLOLOL (this is totally gonna get caught in the spam filter isn’t it)

    Famous last words, buddy. Maybe…your first wedding night only happens once? Hmm.

    I really wasn’t expecting Zayne to go so soon. Was he the youngest heir to die? But it was nice they could celebrate at his restaurant after the ceremony.

    And it was also nice to see the whole extended family getting along. But I still agree with Harper (a first?!) about the wedding being way too rushed. I don’t think Squeegee chose to get married for the right reasons…

    1. Shhhh don’t remind Phee that divorce is a thing, okay? 😂😂😂

      Poor Zayne 😦 He was actually fairly old — 79 when he passed! Tobi was the youngest Rosebrook (besides Luc obviously haha) to go. He was like 73 or 74 I think? But yeah, being at the restaurant was a nice way for them to feel like he could be there with them ❤️

      And woah, you agreed with Harper?! 😱 Hehehe You both might have a point here… it’s very fast, and doesn’t seem to be quite for the right reasons 😕 Natural concerns for the families to have, I think! But they all love Phoenix and Gigi enough to not spoil their wedding day with any negativity ❤️ (I’m sure Phoenix’s journal entry would have been a little less happy if he could read minds though 😂)

  4. LOL. He just couldn’t wait to leap out of bed first thing and whip out that journal!
    Journals is like Rosebrook crack, kekekekeke.

    Well, at least, despite the dream explosion, no one actually blew up in THAT BEAUTIFUL LIVING ROOM… shame about the fighting though, but it wouldn’t be a Rosebrook wedding without some family member taking issue with something (at least no one had sex in a closet, Phoenis! #WINNING)

    I mean, they have been dating for four years, even though they’re super young, it’s not like they just met… why can not the people just thwap their heads on their desks and grimace and respect their wishes to ruin their lives as adults? Tsk.

    Oh Phoenis. Oh my. You… okay. /pats
    I’ll let you figure it out on your own :#
    Enjoy your afterglow, boi!

    1. Erik’s addiction continues on in his son… Journal-addiction is very serious too, you know! 😮 😛 And hey, we have no proof one way or another that one of those couples didn’t run off and bang in the restaurant broom closet or something 😉

      I think at the end of the day, their families ultimately did end up going the head-thwap route. Phoenix and Gigi are both adults and can do what they want, and their parents know that. They’re just very nervous about the potential life-ruining part… 😬 But hopefully those fears are unfounded!

      And yes, Phoenix will gladly sit there in the afterglow of his wedding night and ignore the giant cloud of impending doom hanging above his head 😉 😀

  5. Well, yay!!

    Happily ever after!

    (And sexy times…heh.)

    Oh, who am I kidding? Phee IS a Rosebrook. **Pats him on the back, smh** Here’s some kleenex, Phee. You’re gonna need it. 😉

    1. Yes! Happy wedding, great sex… Everything is perfect! No Kleenex necessary!

      Nothing bad will happen now. The next chapter actually ends the gen. Nothing more to see here. Happily Ever After for all! 😀 💯

  6. Can’t really say it was too fast. They have been dating for a few years and known each other even longer. That is plenty of time to know if it is right or not. The speed between engagement and wedding means nothing except how extravagant the wedding will be.

    It may seem all sunshine and roses right now, but he’s a Rosebrook. We all know how things are going to go. Fasten your seat belts, you too. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    1. Yeah, the speed definitely isn’t the problem as much as the reasons behind it. But like you’ve said before, those kinds of marriages can still work out! So there’s definitely hope 😛 But… he IS a Rosebrook, true! Haha

    1. 50 Shades of Rosebrook omg 😂 And yes, he’s very happy right now ❤️❤️❤️ hopefully it will last?

      Thank you so much for reading!

  7. At least for now Phoenix seems to feel fine. Not that I suspected otherwise, but it’s good to know he is not suddenly having a lingering feeling of doom or other deep problems. Would be a family thing to worry a lot about the completely wrong things. But I somehow worry his honesty will bring him in trouble, though he seems to keep his secrets.

    I expected the reaction of Phoenix’ parents, and it’s only logical to bring those points up, but together with Gigis parents and their harsh reaction it must have been a lot of pressure on them. They are getting married, and having to answer the question “is that really the right thing” over and over again and stuff should really tear on them. I hope they will do alright.

    1. Definitely lots of pressure and feelings of annoyance with their families bugging them all the time 😦 it’s true!

      But otherwise, Phee is happy and feeling good about this new chapter of his life that’s beginning. No worry of doom yet! But you never know what will happen down the line…

  8. Ah, the honeymoon. I’m sure harsh reality is not waiting for them in Brindleton Bay.

    The screenshots in this are lovely! And poor Zayne. Such a contentious heir and yet so well remembered. It is kind of weird that Phoenix is the only one with the Rosebrook name left. He and Gigi will have to fix that.

    1. Aw I’m glad you enjoyed my shots! And yes, Zayne 😦 Very controversial but definitely memorable! He’ll always hold a special place in my heart ❤️

      And yes, unless you could Hope and Gigi (Rosebrooks by marriage) he’s the last true rosebrook left! He and Gigi will definitely have to give us some boo boos and fix that, yes!

  9. I have no opinions on their wedding, because again, they do really love and care for each other. I just hope they’re not too young and stupid. Don’t be a doof, Phoenix. You’ve got this. Give us an amazing daughter to be the next heir before you totally ruin everything, Phoenix lol.

    1. Ha! I love it. Just make sure there’s an heir first 😂😂😂 Phoenix might oblige that request! We shall see? 😛

  10. It’s crazy to think Phoenix is the only Rosebrook around, given that a few generations ago, there was a house with so many people, and there was so many relatives!Time flew by fast…

    Anyway, about the wedding, it was great, and things will end just as great as how it started, yep, I’m pretty sure they are going to face some problems in the future,just wondering what these are going to be…

    I’m glad his parents wanted him to be sure he wanted this.You can be biologically an adult, but not be mature, this are two diferent things, not everone’s level of maturity grows with age…Welp, at least they did their part, and tried to help him.

    To think, not long ago, Gigi wasa simple secundary character with nothing to with the story what so ever…

    1. Yeah, things have changed for the family so much! There are still some distant branches of the family tree, but no one with the Rosebrook last name 😱

      Problems are definitely possible… but it remains to be seen what kinds! It’s definitely what his parents were afraid of. And why they tried to talk a little sense into him.

  11. Did you just PRANCE RIGHT OVER ZAYNE’S DEATH?! LIKE WHOA! My heart!!!!

    Anywhoooo. I feel like they’re in the eye of the storm, right? The worst is yet to come. He hasn’t said anything about really loving her (that I’ve noticed at least) and that shows he’s married for the wrong reasons. Maybe love will come. HOWEVER I FEEL LIKE YOU’RE SO GREAT AT GETTING OUR HOPES UP! So I’ll sit back here, cautious af.

  12. Every time he mentions sex, he mentions how he’d rather just do the vanilla stuff. I wish he felt better about his sexual preferences… I’m kinda thinking now that they’ll have issues (because they’re Rosebrooks) because of that.

    1. He’s definitely still adjusting to their new kinkiness haha I think he enjoys it but he wants to have a balance between both types of sex. Gigi is more ready for fill on kink… hopefully it’s something they can both find a compromise on and feel comfortable with!

  13. This reminded me that I forgot to mention I appreciated the little scene with the exploding heads. This generation is definitely giving me Scrubs vives with all of Phee’s little daydreaming. It’s awesome!

    Nice to see that Hope’s still kicking about, though presumably she’ll be joining Zayne soon.

    Maybe their wedding was not super fancy, but with the imdending trip to Brindleton Bay, at least Phee and Gigi get to enjoy a long honeymoon!
