Decker laughed lightly. Happiness was evident in his voice. "I understand what you mean." He said and found he very interesting. She'd went from vague to very specific. It tickled him. He smiled a smile that we t straight to his eyes. "I think that's alot of information and very specific." He said nodding. He wanted to kiss her. He would mean it and she'd said it was something she liked but he didn't -wouldn't rather- he didn't think it right to do such an intimate act so soon. He also felt it was terribly rude to do in front of the others. He caught himself admiring her face and blinked and cleared his throat. He looked over to Raven. "What about you, Raven? What do you like?"

Lacey smiled at her other sister wives. They all seemed nice, and she felt like she would get along with all of them. She was relieved she wouldn't have to spend her life with a bunch of mean women. She was younger than all of them, she noticed, and wondered why. She listened and smiled as Decker talked, and was very interested when Valentina said what she liked.

Raven blinked when her name was mentioned and answered, keeping her flushed head down.
"I...I guess, um...I guess I like...The sun...I like how bright it makes everything and how happy it makes people feel, and I like being outside, in gardens like this, especially, and reading novels that just...completely take you into another world. I like sugary things, and listening to music. And feeling, I don't know...Special? Appreciated?" she listed, muttering the last point in a quiet whisper. She amazed herself by, not only being able to list so much, but being able to actually say it in front of people. Though, with all of the others' eyes now glued to her, she felt her heart race within her chest, and she was thankful to have her hands under the table because after that speech, they were trembling like a leaf. After finishing, she lifted her head and gave Decker what was beginning to be her trademark shy smile.

Alyssa watched as the other two wives left.Alex said it was time for single picture but,decided for her to go first.She sat on his lap and wrapped her arms around his neck ,giving the camera fake seductive,flirty smiles."So... Tell me about your-self AlyssaWho you are, what you do and where it is they found you." she heard a slight edge in his voice wichita made her quickly respond."I once was a prostitute,." she said "Uhm one of my customers felt bad for me so he ended up giving me a place to stay.All I had to do was do what he asked."She said in a slight whisper,posing in different positions ."And 'they' found me at his house.They took me away from the scarlet district and....well now I' m here.Nothing else really except both my parents died but,that's about it." she said then quickly kissing Alex's cheek for the photo.

Decker nodded. "Ah the garden. My Study window faces it. It's lovely at the break of dawn. I shall show you sometime." He said thinking of the sight. He smiled at her and began to see a pattern. Both those girls wanted to feel...well wanted. Adored. That would not be hard. He turned to Lacey. "What about you, Sweetheart. What do you like?" He asked her. Oh he was having a hard time seeing her as his wife. He made a mental note of asking Daniels about her.

Shelby Peters


Shelby took the rose from Decker warily but she didn't say anything to him. She waited for him to leave and then breathed a sigh of relief. Part of he wanted to dart from the table she was sitting at but she knew better. She knew that somewhere around this party there were two women in high authority watching her every move. Her sister's life was at stake and she wasn't about to kill off her sister for a moment of selfishness. Finally Decker wanted all his brides to sit at the head table so Shelby made her way up to the table and sat down. She heard the conversations start up. Valentina already seemed to have made friends with Raven, and Decker was asking everyone their story and what they liked.

Telling him anything about herself seemed like an appalling idea. On the flip side, she didn't know what to say. She couldn't tell him the truth. The ladies in waiting made it a point to tell her to keep her personal life...well...personal. She had to figure out her life story, it had to be convincing, and she had to do it fast. Her likes wouldn't have to change, just her life story. She blocked out the other women and started piecing together a life story. When she was finished she gave herself a small nod and folded her hands nicely in her lap. She could see the women watching her from the back of the room. They were giving her a very stern look and she knew what it meant. 'Be civil. Be kind. DON'T tell him where you came from, he doesn't need to know about your poor trashy life, he has better things to do with his time.' she heard the woman's voice ring in her head.

Lacey smiled, and her cheeks blushed pink when he called her sweetheart. "Well I like smiling," she said with a giggle, "and I love to sing. I like being with people and talking with people. I like little kids, and I love animals. And I absolutely love flowers." She grinned at Decker and her sister wives.

Decker smiled at Lacey. God, she was absolutely adorable. He'd decided. He trest her like a sister. Something he'd never had. He didn't care what he was told to do. "You are such a sweetheart." He said with a touch to her face. She was infinitly cheeriful and loved just about everything. "I will you two a room facing the garden. If not. We'll build on." He said and turned his attention to Shebly removing his hand from Lacey's sweet face. "Shebly, What about you? What are your interests?" He said with a smile.

Shelby


Everyone seemed to be so enamored with the man, or at least happy in the moment. Shelby could not force herself to be happy. She could not force herself to like him, though for the life of her sister she'd try. "Reading, cooking, playing piano, children...namely my little sister, rain, listening to music, fresh air, and I like to stay fit." she said emotionlessly. She had no desire to add explanations to the things she liked. She knew if she did she'd probably say something inappropriate, and she sure as hell wasn't going to give him any crucial information to play off of. He was not going to win her favor easily, if at all.

Decker sighed. Shelby was not happy. "Shelby, How can I make you happy?" He asked wanting-needing to know. He knew now that Raven would be happy if he asked her opinion she wanted to feel appreciated. Valentina wanted to feel beautiful, she be happy with him telling her, complementing her daily. Lacey...Lacey would be happy with just about anything but Shelby. She was not enthusiastic about what she said. Sure she may have enjoyed those things but talking about them didn't bring light to her eyes like it did the others. "I'd like to know." He said, his eyes pleading to her.

Shelby


Shelby didn't know what to say back. She sat in silence for a minute. She knew she had to respond somehow but when she opened her mouth, no sound came out. "You'll have to excuse me. I need to use the ladies room" she said, wiping her face and getting up from the table. All the men in the room stood when she did as an act of respect, and they all sat back down once she left the table. Shelby walked swiftly to the bathroom. Once inside she shut and locked the door. 'A moment to myself' she thought. She sighed and tears started pooling in her eyes, but she didn't let them spill over her eyelids. After about 10 minutes she pulled herself together and emerged once again. She sat back down at the table and the women in the back of the room glared at her. Shelby didn't say anything and hoped that Decker had already tried striking up a conversation with his other brides.

Decker sighed. He didn't understand why Shelby was so upset. Was this not her wedding day as well? This should be the happiest day of her life. He scratching the back of his head. He wouldn't go after her. If she wanted space. He wouldn't interrupt. He turned to the other girls. He noticed Raven looked down at her lap. What was wrong with her? He thought. What did he do wrong? He was kind, polite, gentle. Everything he thought a man should be to a wife. He didn't know what else to do. He looked over at her and touched her hand. " Is everything alright?" He asked thinking that the table right now was filled with unexpressed feelings. Like the women were hiding something. They almost look similar to what his Mothers did when his father was around. He didn't like that in the least. "Please if anything is wrong, let me know how to fix it...All of you." He pleaded with the girls.

Decker sighed. "Well, Let us go inside then. This party is dreadfully boring, don't you think?" He said, making sure to ask her opinion. He rose when Valentina stood. He pulled her seat out so she wouldn't trip over it. "Of course, Take your time." He said with a smile. His head was beginning to hurt. He didn't know why. He felt a little stressed but only because the girls seemed to be upset. He wanted desperately to fix that but they don't seem to be willing to tell him what was really wrong. Time. He figured may do some good. Perhaps they were just tried from the party? That didn't make sense even in his head. Something was wrong he just didn't know what.

Decker smiled and stepped away from the table. "Excuse me, Everyone but My bride would like a moment of peace and so C
we will retire for the evening. I'd like to thank you for you're lovely wedding gifts and for attending. Thank you and good night." He said to the guest and after a few moments. It was just Decker, Raven and Lacey. He smiled at the girls. "Lacey, would you like to open our gifts? While I speak to Raven?" He asked her with a smile. He wanted to talk to Raven alone but didn't want Lacey to feel left out.

Decker turned to Raven. He took her hands gingerly. They were so soft. "Raven." He said softly. "I would like very much to please you. To keep you happy but sadly I can not read you're thoughts." He said with pleading eyes then I thought struck him. Maybe she had second thoughts about this marriage. Perhaps, His Last name gave her pause. His father was a tryant. Maybe she thought he was one too. "I am nothing like my father. I will respect you. If you wanted me to stand on my head until my face turn blue, I would. If it would make you happy. So please. What troubles you so that I can put an end to it?"

Decker wanted to pull her into his arms but he thought he should ask. "What can I do to help you relax? Anything you want." He said absentmindedly stroke the back of her hands with his thumbs.

"I...I guess all I need is...Some time to adjust...And a little bit of patience, on your part..." Raven answered quietly, her shy smile still playing at her lips and her cheeks still burning bright pink. What he was doing with his thumbs was distracting, and she felt herself get pulled in by those gentle, rhythmic strokes that brought every nerve in her hand to life. She managed to pull herself away long enough to add. "This place is a lot different from where I was before, and I think I'm still in shock..."

Decker nodded. Patience. "I'll be patient." He said with a smile. "I must say, I like it when you smile. I like to keep it there if you don't mind." He said with a touch to her chin after he let go of her hands. "Please, Go enjoy yourself." He said and gestured toward the house.

Decker smiled but he was a little confused. "Of course, not. " He said. "If you want me to stay with you now, all you have to do is ask. I am yours." He said and then added. "If you want me." Thinking that could be taking in the wrong context. He swore would not force them and he word was true. If they wanted him-aside from Lacey- then they would have him but only then.

Decker smiled at Raven. He walked back up to her. "So, What shall we do together then?" He asked her, offering her his arm. He was glad she was opening up. Perhaps she really was simply uncomfortable. He still felt a small hint of fear in her but he hoped it would soon fade. He also hoped it was be the same for the others. He decided not to think about them at the moment. His focus was on Raven as she requested.

"Yes but I'd like to do whatever it is you want to do." Decker explained with a chuckle in his words."You said you love reading I have a large library. Prehaps we could start there or we could walk around the Garden." He said, thrilled that she took his arm. She seemed to be warming up to him and he was glad for that. He didn't want her to be timid. He wanted to know her.

Decker tilted her head up at him softly with a finger. He looked her in the eyes. "I could never get bored with you." He said softly and before he realized it, he leaned in for a kiss but he stopped just short of her lips. He moved back to a respectable distance while still holding on to her arm. "Let's talk then." He said and let go of her arm. He grabbed them both a chair and waited for her to take a seat.He couldn't believe he'd almost kissed her. He wanted to...badly but if he had, he would have broken his word then what. She'd never trust him. He'd strengthen his reserve. He will not touch her or any of the others without their permission.

Decker cleared his throat. He was surpised she couldn't hear his heart trying to break out of his chest. "Um...Perhaps...Books. What are your favorites?" He asked desperately clawing at something else to think about but he could. He cursed himself mentally for nearly breaking his word.

"No, not at all!" Decker said excitedly. Smiling, he sat more comfortablely in his seat. "Have you ever read Princess of Mars? Oh, it's a wonderful book. I've read it so many times. I have it in my study. I think you'll really enjoy that one." He said with bright smile.

(I'm here, finally!)

When Decker asked Lacey if she wanted to open her presents, she nodded and giggled excitedly. A few moments later, she saw him walk off with Raven. She was a little jealous; so far she was the only one to receive alone time with their new husband. It sounded weird to her when put like that. "Their" husband. Thinking about it, she wasn't sure how she felt about it. About sharing a man with three other people. The three other girls were older than her, and she figured would receive the most attention. Being the youngest, she sighed and figured she'd be treated like a child. She didn't want to be treated to like a child, she wanted to be treated like a wife. "Wife." That word sounded weird too. Was she ready to be someone's wife? She wasn't sure...

For the first time all night, the smile left her face.
