"Hold your horses."
"Alex, can't you get him to move faster?"
"Fox, you know it's no use to yell. That just makes him slow down. He won't be late, and even if he is, Sergei won't start without us there."
The door to the bathroom opened and Walter stood there looking handsome in his dress clothes. Fox smiled as he walked toward them. Walter had recovered well from the hip replacement surgery he'd undergone a few months back. His gait was now almost as sure as when they'd first met.
"Well, let's get with it. Don't want to be late."
Alex drove as he almost always did. Walter no longer really trusted his reactions on the road and Fox just liked to be driven. The small chapel was not far from the hotel. A valet took the car from them and they walked into the church together.
Alexandra and Mai met them just inside the door. Kissing Alex quickly, Alexandra told him, "Go through there to third door on the left, Sergei needs his 'Lex."
Alex hurried off to do as he was told as the girls turned to the other men. Alexandra taking her Grandpa Fox's hand as Mai took Walter's.
"Nervous is he?" Walter asked Mai.
"Wouldn't you be if you were going to be making vows in just a few minutes?"
"I suppose I was the first time. But I wasn't a bit the second."
"That's not what Mom says."
Walter turned to look at Fox as the girls giggled.
"I didn't say a word, Walter. Honest! I think I get blamed for that witch's psychic abilities."
Miranda came sailing out of the hallway Alex had disappeared into, grinning at her fathers-in-law. "He actually tells me very little, Dad. You're just easy to read. Now that you guys are here, we can start. Girls, take your grandfathers in and seat them."
They took their seats by Edward and waited as the mothers were seated. Then the music began and everyone rose. Alex and Sergei came into the auditorium from a side door. They all turned and watched as the doors at the back opened to reveal Belinda and Peter.
The Canadians had once more leapt ahead of the rest of the world and made polygamy legal. Sergei, Belinda and Peter were about to become the first triad married in a formal ceremony under the new laws.
Walter watched as the couple walked down the aisle toward their soon to be legal husband. He knew men aren't supposed to glow but Peter looked as radiant as Belinda. Walter reached for Fox's hand as they settled on the seats to watch the ceremony.
The vows were simple, each speaking of their hearts to the others. Walter smiled when Peter's rings were slipped onto his right hand, Russian style. Belinda had opted to wear hers in the American tradition and Sergei, in his typical swim against the current fashion, had one on each hand. Three mouths pressed together as the crowd cheered.
As they passed down the aisle, Alex came to join them, slipping into his space at their side.
"Got him calmed down I see." Fox said to Alex as they waited for the other guests to exit.
Walter hugged them as the three mothers met in the aisle and walked out arm in arm with the fathers following slowly. Alexandra and Mai waited until the three men were ready to go. Alexandra got impatient and pulled Fox along toward the door.
Walter turned to look at Mai. "What's her hurry?"
"She wants Fox to meet her new boyfriend. She thinks this is the right one for her. But you know if he doesn't pass the grandpa Fox X-Files test, he'd go the way of the dodo."
"And what about you?" Walter asked his red-headed grandchild.
"Me? I holding out for a combo of the three of you."
Alex chuckled, "Never happen, little girl. Walter, I guess we'll be here for Mai's wedding when she finds the right *three* men to marry."
"I'm not sure three could keep up with her."
"Papa, did I remember to thank you for that?"
"Thank me for what?"
"The horny toad sex drive."
Alex howled, ran from the church, Mai hot on his heels, as Walter wondered, not for the first time, when he'd lost control. Oh yeah, the little voice reminded him - it was when he decided to love two men. He hurried to catch up; he didn't want to miss a single minute of the reception, or Fox's test of the new beau.
