An Interactive Twilight Experience.
Weddings are joyful. They should be. They're a celebration of unity. The Cullens and the Blacks are the true definition of unity. They were once enemies and now they are family. I wonder what the future will bring. It really is a good day.
However, I cannot help but feel a tinge of sorrow. I could tell Edward was saddened to let go of his daughter, but at the same time proud. So, I couldn't help but think of my children.
I was robbed of them when I was turned. Though I kept tabs on my family as much as a I could, I eventually let go and let them live their lives. A vampire can only do so much and it hurt to be so close, yet so far.
From census records and what not, I found out what the future held for my surviving children.
I know my little Mary married a gentleman from Georgia named Joseph. He was a banker, so made good money, so I know she must have been taken care of. They also had four children. Mary must have felt sadness, with me not being there for her, though her mother did remarry, so she did have a step father around.
Then came the father daughter dance. This brought me back to 1776. We attended a Christmas party. Mary was four at the time. She came over to me and asked if I would dance with her. I could not say no, so I took her in my arms and we danced. I picked her up and swung her around. I remember her little voice telling me not to let her go. I promised I would never let her go. I feel like I had no choice but to, when I was changed.
Kate understands all of this, as she has had her own share of pain in her human life. It reminds us that we are more human than we think.
