A.N.: Hehee, I have a bit of free time, so I will make you all happy by finishing my story. This is the final chapter, so I hope you enjoy the last few moments.

Syai felt lost, and amazed, and happy all at once. She stared into Tiekkyra's eyes and couldn't believe what he just said to her. The only question on her mind was if she was dreaming...

"Y-yes, I'd be honored to," she replied, tears welling up in her joyful eyes. She threw her arms around him as he picked her up and twirled her around. After he put her back down, he gave her the ring and the warmest kiss he'd ever given her. As they hugged again, Syai heard applause from inside. Everyone had seen them! She went a deep red as Tiekkyra led her back into the main room. Cyrus was the first one to meet them.

"Well, you actually pulled this whole thing off," he clucked, a devious grin on his face. Tiekkyra just laughed.

"I really wasn't sure I'd be able to," he answered. They both laughed at each other while Syai stood confused.

"Wait a minute. What do you mean, pull this off?" she asked suspiciously. The two men beside her stared at each other before sending themselves into hysterics all over again.

"The whole thing was a set up," Tiekkyra explained. "I couldn't think of a way to propose, so I went to Cyrus, and he came up with this idea. Everything from the note to your gown was a part of it. Actually, the only thing that didn't go as planned was you getting upset and going outside, but I would have preferred asking you alone."

Syai's mouth fell open so that she looked like a beached fish.

"So, even Mena knew that my gown was for this?"

"Everyone but you knew about the idea," Cyrus chuckled. "I have to admit, this was one of my more brilliant schemes."

"Does Jade know about it?"

"Er... no, she doesn't," Cyrus said. "I just told her I was coming here. I assume you want to tell her?"

"Well, I'd like to, yes."

"Then go contact her," Tiekkyra said, pushing her gently out of the room.

~~~~~*****

Syai ran into her room and quickly dialed up Jade. Jade's sleepy face appeared on the screen of Syai's video pad.

"JADE, GUESS WHAT!" Syai cried excitedly. Jade yawned and scratched her head.

"What?" she asked. Syai put her hand up to the screen to show her the ring, and Jade's eyes went as wide as dinner plates.

"Holy, look at the rock on that thing!" she yelled in shock. Syai groaned.

"No, not that. I'm engaged, you moron!"

"What?!"

"Tiekkyra just asked me to marry him, and I said yes!" Syai was all but bouncing off the walls while Jade was utterly speechless.

The only thing she could say was, "Let me talk to him."

Syai carried her pad down to the main room to find Tiekkyra, who was being congratulated by a few employees.

"Tiekkyra, Jade wants to talk to you," Syai said, handing him the screen pad.

"She probably wants to give you her motherly speech," Cyrus smirked.

"You read my mind, master," said Jade with a mischievous tone. Tiekkyra gulped as Jade went on and on with rather violent threats, some of which contained ideas like, "I'll remove your reason for wearing underwear if you even think of breaking her heart." Cyrus crossed his legs at that statement and coughed.

"Jade, stop it, you're scaring him now," Cyrus intervened finally, switching off the screen. "Honestly, she's a love, but she has her days."

"Well, Tiekkyra, look at it this way," Syai said. Tiekkyra looked at her.

"At least she's not as vicious as my brothers," she mentioned casually, an impish grin spreading across her face. All the color from Tiekkyra's face drained instantly.

"What?! You never told me you had brothers," he burst out nervously. "Why didn't you tell me you had siblings at all?"

"Because it would have been more fun to keep you guessing," she giggled. He ran his hand behind his head anxiously.

"Please tell me you're older than they are," he pleaded, but Syai just smiled and sighed.

"Nope, sorry. The youngest one is your age," she replied nonchalantly. Tiekkyra dropped his head down and almost sobbed.

"And how many do you have?"

"Heh. five."

Now Tiekkyra was afraid. Being followed around by five older men throughout the preparation days was not going to be his idea of a fun time.

"Just please let them know that I'm not a pervert," he begged her. "Please!"

"Don't worry, I will," Syai assured him.

~~~~~*****

After everyone had left that night, Syai went to her room and changed into her nightgown to go to bed. She didn't bother taking her engagement ring off. It felt too good to take it off. As she slipped under her blankets and drifted to sleep, her past experiences flashed through her dreams.

*****

When Syai first met Jade.

"Hey, you new here?"

"Yes."

"I should've known. The name's Jade, what's yours?"

"Syai."

"You seem awfully young to be here, Syai."

"I'm fifteen, doesn't that make me old enough?"

"Well yeah, but you still look like you could use a guide."

"I do?"

"Yup. Consider me your new mother hen."

"Um, alright."

****

When she was first sold to Tiekkyra.

"Wait, Tiekkyra, we haven't heard from you yet. Why haven't you said anything?"

"I usually don't, remember?"

"You are so young. Did you have a price in mind?"

"Yes I do. I doubt anyone would try to beat 9500?"

Silence.

"Does anyone want to try? No? Then she's yours, Tiekkyra."

*****

Syai rolled back over, but soon her dreams were filled with the horrors she had suffered on the way.

*****

What happened in Berylius's room that night.

"Tell me who your master is!"

"OW! Stop it!"

"Tell me!"

"No, I know what you want to hear."

"You little."

"OWW! Please, stop it now!"

"I'll keep this up until you tell me. And I can hold out for a damn long time."

"NO! Leave me alone!"

"It's too late now, you're already mine."

"No, I'll never be yours."

"You're mine, now get over it!"

"NO!"

"I swear, I'll kill you if you don't shut up like a good girl." A long sigh can be heard.

"Get off me, I can't breathe! You're too heavy!"

"Tell me who your master is, and I'll let you breathe."

"Alright, alright. You are."

"Thank you."

*****

Syai's torture under Gisana.

"You've never experienced any pain, have you? You've been too busy being cute and loved by your alleged master to be a true slave. You're nothing but a spoiled brat!"

The sound of a door being locked echoes.

"You'll never ruin my life again."

*****

Syai rolled over again and again until her dreams switched to a gentler feeling.

*****

Tiekkyra's confession.

"I need to tell you something."

"Shoot."

"I love you."

"What?"

"I love you, Syai. I love you more than anything."

*****

"Higher class, hm?"

"That's what I said."

"Well, I don't think they'll have too much of a problem accepting you after this."

"Syai, will you please make me the happiest human being in the world and be my wife?"

"I'd be honored to."

*****

Now Syai fell into a deep and happy slumber, feeling as if she was the most joyful girl in the world.

A.N.: The End. Well, that's all for this story. * starts bawling loudly * I had a good time with all you guys! I'll leave it up to you if I should post their wedding or not. THANK YOU ALL!!! PLEASE R/R!
