Story:

A Lion named Murrie and a Unicorn named Mars were the most unusual companions.  While most thought they should be mortal enemies, Mars and Murrie were like a brother and sister.  Growing up together they shared every experience and adventure.  When they were young they did the Pepsi and Coca Cola challenge. Murrie picked Pepsi while Mars pick Coca Cola but they both preferred Tab.  Murrie always chuckled at how Mars said Octopus as “Octothorpe”.

Today was going to be the biggest adventure ever, Mars was getting married to the love of his life, a young Pegasus name Marie. Murrie was thrilled to be their Maid of Honour. They met Marie at a small restaurant called The Minute Hand where they not only learned there was a 100 ways to say hello but a 100 ways to cook an egg.

Mars nervously waited for his bride to be as Murrie helped Marie adjust her veil. The Second hand veil was Marie’s something old and the 700 hummingbirds that were to carry it down the aisle was something new as well as borrowed but she was missing something blue.  Murrie reached in her mane and pulled out 3 small blue Forget-Me-Nots and gently placed them in Marie’s hair.

“You are beautiful and are ready to walk down the aisle to marry Mars.” She said with a slight tear of joy in her eye, and a hug.

Just then the wedding march began. Together they proceeded.
