They ate their meals and (Name) held onto Jet’s hand as she realized they were over the ocean. It freaked her out still. Jet knew this so he made sure she was okay. He pecked her cheek.
“You’re going to love the house; the pictures don’t do it justice.” He assured her, “I saw it and just knew that it was perfect and I was so happy you agreed, I even had one of my friends do a walk through to be sure everything works.”
“Would have been nice if we could have done that ourselves…but we were living in the wrong hemisphere, not just the wrong country.” (Name) softly laughed, “I’m excited about moving here with you…but I’m still nervous about starting over.”
“I know, (Name), but I’ll be with you every step of the way.” He assured her, “If you don’t understand something or need help with anything just let me know.”
“At least I don’t have to learn a new language.” She laughed and smiled at him.
She would never not be nervous about this whole moving across the world to start a new married life, but she knew that with Jet by her side she could handle it. She leaned in and pecked his cheek. She looked at their entwined hands and leaned over nuzzling his shoulder.
“I love you Jet, and I may be nervous, but I’m also excited.” She said.
“Good.” He said and kissed her temple, “I wouldn’t want to just whisk you away completely against your will.”
“No only minorly against my will right?” She teased, “Just against my will enough to be like a taboo running away together plot.”
He laughed, “You’re such a dork.” He said and pecked her nose.
“But I’m your dork.” She said with a smile.
“You got that right.” He said and captured her lips again.
It was moments like this that reminded (Name) of one of the reasons she had fallen in love with him. He got her sense of humor and would even participate sometimes. She made him laugh and he made her laugh and that made up for any nerves either would ever feel. She felt most of her nerves melted away when he kissed her.

The flight was nearing its end and (Name) was taking a deep breath as she put away all her carry on stuff into her handbag. Jet was holding her hand and rubbing the top with his thumb as they began their descent. She squeaked and hid her head in his shoulder, take off and touch down were two parts of flight she doubted she would ever get used to. Thankfully Jet realized this and held her hand tightly and murmured soothing words into her ear. When they finally touched down (Name) released the breath she was holding in as they began to taxi.
“Welcome to Australia.” Jet murmured and kissed her ear playfully.
When they were finally let off the plane Jet led (Name) to baggage claim. He smiled as they walked holding her hand tightly. His joy at being home with her was through the roof and his joy really did rub off on (Name). He carried their bags out to where he had rented a car.
“I’ll be buying a car soon, love.” He said with a smile, “Don’t worry, but you need to test drive so I rented one for a week so that I had time to get my own and we can still get around.”
“You always think of everything.” She giggled softly.
“You’re just now realizing that?” he laughed as she punched his shoulder playfully, “So are you excited?”
“Now that we’re here, yeah.” She said smiling happily.
“Good, now get in the car, let’s go.” He said with a smile making her laugh.

They pulled up in front of a one story home painted white with yellow trim, making (Name) smile, she had told him that she had always imagined a house like this. He turned the rental car off and got out before hurrying to open (Name’s) car door for her and lift her up into his arms. She squealed a laugh.
“What are you doing?” she giggled.
“I figured I would carry you over the threshold.” He laughed and kissed her jawbone playfully.
He did just that carried her through the front door and into their home, plopping her onto a couch. He had told her ahead of time he had asked some of his oldest friends to help move the furniture in. It wasn’t where the couple would want it, but it was at least in the house. She giggled and he hurried to get the stuff out of the car before coming back in and smiling at her.
“Welcome home, my quokka.” He murmured smiling at her as she sat up and looked at him.
“I’m so happy.” She murmured with her own smile.
He lifted her up into his arms and held her close. He kissed her cheek and then kissed all over her face making her squeal and giggle. He smiled and nuzzled her. She looked up at him and kissed his lips.
“Jet, I am so happy I married you.” She said softly.
“I’m happy you married me too.” He laughed softly and pecked her lips.
He walked her through the house still holding her when they reached the master bedroom, where there was already a bed with a mattress on it (Name) noticed his eyes get an all too familiar glint to them.
“We can always unpack later~” she purred.
“You took the words right out of my mouth.” He purred back and lay her on the bed and crawled on top of her, “I love you.” He murmured.
“Prove it~” she teased and kissed him.
He kissed back holding her waist gently, she was the only woman in the world he could ever imagine being with. He kissed her with all the love and passion he held for her. She returned it whole heartedly. She knew that as long as she had him she would be able to weather anything.
