Jadzia's Wedding Dress (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Jadzia Dax
I'm currently in the the Starfleet Mall shop Wedding Dresses by Alanis with my friend Ro Laren. We are trying to find a suitable dress that I can wear for my forthcoming marriage to Worf. So far, we've had little success, with the range varying from the boring to the downright outrageous.
"We're not going to get anything here, Jadzia." Ro gloomily tells me, "Let's look elsewhere."
"Just a moment, ladies." Alanis says desperately, "I've never had a customer leave here without one of my dresses, and you're not going to be the first. Stay a little while, as I'm sure we'll find you something suitable, Miss Dax."
We agree, and a model comes in, wearing another dress.
"This one isn't bad." muses Ro.
"I agree." I tell her, "It woild be fime if I were marrying a prince in his vastle, but it's Worf I'm getting hitched to, and we want everything to be in a Klingon design. I'm looking forward to Worf breaking my clavicle on our wedding night. It's a sign of good luck for the marriage,"
Ro looks at me oddly, and Alanis approaches.
"I'm sorry, Miss Dax." she says, "I couldn't help overhearing. Is it true that you are marrying a Klingon, and want rhe ceremony to be in the proper Klingon manner?"
"Ah, well I have the answer to your problems!" Alanis smiles, as she brings us a huge book with the Klingon symbol on it. The book says Klingon Wedding Dresses
I smile, and open the book.
"Now THIS is more like it!" I exclaim to Ro as I leaf through the pages. Suddenly I stop.
"This is it!" I say, "I want to get married in this dress."
"It's a good one, Jadzia." Ro agrees.
"Excellent, Miss Dax." Alanis beams, somewhat relieved that I have at last found a dress that I like, "I'll measure you and have it made."
Ro and I leave the shop, both happy that a major choice in my wedding has been decided.
