A/N: Inspired by listening to 'Dareka no Negai ga Kanau Koro' by Utada Hikaru on loop for 82 times. XD It's such a beautiful but bittersweet song.

When Wishes Come True

I should be happy, shouldn't I?

Today is my wedding day. I am about to be married to the man of my dreams. A person who loves me for who I am. A person who doesn't want me to change. A person that I love. I'm wearing an elegant white wedding dress. The person staring back at me from the mirror is the most beautiful person I have ever seen in my life. I'm almost afraid to believe that person is me.

Isn't this all that I had ever wished for?

This should be the happiest day of my entire life, and I'm not happy. The diamond ring that I will wear sits on the dresser table in front of me. It sparkles and I can see our initials engraved on the inside. The ring lies in a dark black velvet box and I pick it up. I brush my fingertips on the letters engraved there. The cold surface of the ring is smooth and I remember that I can still feel.

Today I am getting married and it was my decision, my decision alone. When I tie that knot today, all of the other choices I could have made will disappear. All of the other doors of opportunity will close today. There will be no going back.

It's that time now.

Today is going to be the happiest day of my life. I wonder why I am not happy yet. I am walking down the aisle and it seems like such a long walk. Right now, I am slowly walking down a path that will lead me to happiness. It's not selfish to want to happy, is it? Everyone is searching for a way to become happy.

"I do." he says.

My groom smiles at me. He is a handsome and wonderful man. I was lucky to find someone like him. He loves me. He needs me. I am sure that I am the only person who can heal his wounds. I understand him. He understands me. He wishes for my happiness as well. This is not a mistake.

"I do." I respond.

The priest says the infamous line, "If anyone here objects to the union of these two please speak now or forever hold your peace."

I look through the pews of seated people and I finally find your face. Part of me is waiting for you to say something. Part of me is wanting you not to say anything. You catch my gaze and smile at me. Your smile is saying, "I want you to be happy," but your eyes are saying, "I want you to be happy with me."

But you say nothing; I guess there is nothing left to say.

He leans and kisses me. I kiss him back because I am happy. I'm honestly truly happy. This was a wish that actually came true. It feels like a dream that finally became real.

We are walking down that aisle. People are cheering and clapping. Today is the happiest day of my life. I don't think I could ever be this happy again. He squeezes my hand tightly and I squeeze his hand back. That beautiful diamond ring is now on my hand and it sparkles.

Walking down the aisle, I pass you. I owe you a lot. You let me open the door to eternal bliss. You gave me that opportunity and you never held me back. I smile at you. I hope my message reaches you. I also want you to be happy. But I want you to be happy without me.

But I can't help but feel a little selfish right now. The more I wish for your happiness, the more I realize what a selfish person I've become. The only way you could be happy is if you were the man holding my hand. And yet, the only way I can be happy is if the person holding my hand is not you.

Today is the happiest day of my life.

All of my wishes have come true.

But everyone's wishes can't be granted at the same time.

When someone's wishes come true, someone else is crying.
