Robb found Rachel,thinking alone.
He thought that she was really an amazing woman. She was brilliant, beautiful. She was the perfect woman he had been looking for. She was a Lannister,yes,but it didn’t matter. He wanted to be with her,and he would do everything to keep her with him. They had this common point : when they wanted something,they were ready to stand and fight for it. No matter the price,no matter the consequences. And Robb was ready to stand and fight for Rachel,no matter the price,no matter the consequences.
When Rachel noticed he was behind her,she smiled. And that smile consolidated Robb’s decision.
"Hey " he said.
"Hey,are you okay ? You seem weird. "
"Yes,yes,I’m fine. I just want to ask you a question… "
" Well,ask ! " she replied,smiling.
" What do you think of us ? Of our future ?"
" I think that could work. I’m pretty sure about that. But it depends on you,not me. "
" Yeah,I know…actually that’s why I came here.. " Robb announced, quite confused.
"Oh,you made a decision ? "
" Yeah… "
" About what’s going to happen in King’s Landing ? "
" Yes. It was not easy Rach,but I had no choice… "
"Oh,I see. Okay. It’s your decision. I cannot do anything about that. "
She turned over,and a tear rolled on her cheek.
" But you don’t even know my decision ! " Robb said.
" I think it’s pretty clear.. " she sighed.
Robb took a deep breath. He had never been so stressed in his entire life. But he had never been so excited either.
He took Rachel’s hand,and stood in front of her.
"Rachel Lannister, would you accept to share your life with me,forever ? "
Rachel giggled at first, it was a compulsive laugh. And then,when she realized that Robb was asking her to marry him,she couldn’t help but to cry. He took her in his arms,and Rachel knew that she was definitely the happiest woman on Earth.
"I thought you wanted to leave me in King's Landing." she told him.
"How could you think about such a stupid thing !" Robb said.
"I don't know !"
" Could you just tell me if it’s a yes or a no ?" Robb asked her,a little stressed.
"Of course it’s a YES idiot ! " she said,smiling and crying again.
"You officially made me the happiest man on Earth. " Robb told her.
"And you made me the happiest woman on Earth, " Rachel replied.
Robb smiled to Rachel,and kissed her as he never did before. She was going to become his wife.
She was going to become a part of him. Forever.
She was going to become a part of him. Forever.
Inés and Daario were standing on deck of the ship, watching the sunset when Robb and Rachel walked over to them with smiles on their faces, holding hands.
"What's going on?" Inés asked with a smile on her face.
"We're getting married", Rachel smiled, looking at her future husband, who smiled back at her.
"What? That's amazing!" Inés laughed, rushing over to hug them. "When did this happen?"
"Just now", Robb said. "I don't have a ring yet, I'm going to get one, but-"
"That doesn't matter", Rachel rushed to say. "I don't care about the ring."
"The first woman to ever say that", Daario joked as he walked over to congratulate them. "We have to celebrate this! Let's have dinner tonight", Inés smirked.
And so they had dinner at the candlelit table with the best food the cooks could make and the best wine they had.
"So, what is your plan?" Inés asked eagerly.
"We'll get married as soon as we reach Westeros", Robb said. "So our families can be there."
"And you think the Starks and the Lannisters will just stop fighting?"
"We don't know", Rachel said. "But my brother wants me to be happy, and it's up to him now. And Robb promised that he would try to negotiate a peace with him."
"I did", Robb nodded, smiling at Rachel. "For you, anything."
"So I guess the Lannister became a Stark", Inés teased. "I never expected that."
"Rachel Stark, I like that", Rachel said, turning to look at Robb.
"I love that. And I love you", he replied before kissing her.
"I love you, too", Rachel whispered between kisses.
"Maybe we should give them some privacy", Inés smirked and gestured for Daario to follow her out of the room. They walked through the corridors back to the deck.
"What are you thinking, my queen?" Daario asked with a smile on his face.
"I'm thinking that maybe we'll finally get a chance to be happy now. We'll see my close friend get married to the man she loves. We might even see Westeros at peace for once", Inés smiled. "And then we'll go home, you and me."
"You and me?" Daario smiled.
"Yes. As my captain of the guard.... or as my lover, if that's what you want."
Daario raised his eyebrows. "What are you saying?"
"I'm saying is that I'm tired of waiting to be happy. I want this, I want you. I don't care what anyone says, I want to be with you", Inés said, walking over to him. "Do you want to be with me, too?"
Daario smiled before walking closer and placing a hand on her cheek. "Of course I do", with that he leaned closer and kissed her, pulling her closer, wrapping his arms around her. And with that the two couples finally found their happy endings. Rachel and Robb did get married in Westeros, Jaime and Robb negotiated a peace, Robb and Rachel became the King and Queen in the North, and Inés and Daario watched all this happen before returning back to Meereen, to their home. And a few years later they got married as well, and of course invited their friends to celebrate with them.
