Allura looked at the prince kneeling before her. She should have seen this coming. Lotor was trying the old take-her-out-to-dinner-and -propose trick. She didn't even see why she should marry him. She saw plenty of reasons why she shouldn't though.
"Why should I?" she asked.
"I haven't been terrorizing anyone," he replied. "I've changed Allura. Honest, I have."
'Well, there's one reason why I should marry him. But should I accept? Maybe I should ask the guys what they think. No, they would tell me to refuse. But, he says he's changed. Maybe I can help him change even more.'
Looking at Lotor, she said, "I will. I will marry you, Lotor."
Lotor blinked in surprise. "You will."
Smiling, Lotor pulled a small box out from behind his back and opened it, showing Allura the diamond engagement ring. Standing up, he took the ring and slipped it on the ring finger on her left hand. "Let me know when you want the wedding."
"Lotor, I don't want the rest of the Voltron Force to get suspicious if we wait. Let's get married right now. Then there's no way they can say anything about it because it will have already happened."
"It makes sense to me. I can have Hagger perform the ceremony."
"Alright. Our honeymoon will have to wait for another time, though."
Allura and Lotor were beamed aboard the Revenge, which was waiting above the restaurant. Hagger and the two space pirates were aboard also. The engaged couple approached Hagger.
"Begin the ceremony Hagger," Lotor ordered.
"She accepted, then?"
"Yes, she did."
"Alright. Lotor, do you take Princess Allura to be your lawfully wedded wife?"
"And do you Princess Allura, take Prince Lotor for your lawfully wedded husband?"
"Then, by the power invested in me, the rings."
The space pirates stepped over and presented the wedding rings to Allura and Lotor. The two of them took the rings and slipped them onto each other's left hands.
"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride."
Lotor leaned toward the princess. Allura did likewise. Their lips met and locked. It was official. Lotor and Allura were married.
The newlyweds were beamed back to the front of The Galaxy Star. Before Allura returned to Blue Lion, she turned to her husband.
"Thank you again for dinner and a legal, albeit, short ceremony."
"You're welcome Allura. But, what will you say when the Voltron Force sees your wedding ring and you tell them what happened?"
"I will tell them that they will have to accept the fact that we're married."
"Don't forget to tell them that now that we're married, there will be peace in the galaxy."
"I will." Allura kissed Lotor once more before getting into her lion and taking off for The Castle of Lions.
Entering, Allura tried to keep her footsteps quiet, certain that everyone was asleep. As she passed the Lounge, she saw the guys in there. Stepping inside, she said, "Hi. Why are you awake?"
"Keith told us about your letter and the date you had tonight," Lance said.
"So, who was this phantom guy?" Hunk asked.
"He asked me to marry him."
"You told him 'no' right?"
"I told him yes."
"You're kidding?" Lance said. Allura shook her head.
"Allura, how could you." Keith scolded.
"You don't understand. He's changed."
"He hasn't been terrorizing the galaxy lately. As a result of our marriage, there will be peace in the galaxy."
"Look, we're married and that's that." Allura turned to leave.
"Allura, wait." She turned around.
"Look, we're sorry. You're right. You're married. It was your decision," Keith apologized.
"I'm glad you finally see that."
"Well, good night princess."
"Good night, everyone." Allura left the lounge and headed for her room to get ready for bed.
