An Interactive Twilight Experience.
During the past few months, I have been wondering a little more about my past and what had happen to my father after my change, so I decided to talk to Master Aro and ask his permition, the first one after all this centuries, to go back to Reims, and to be honest I was surprised when he said yes under the condition to come back as soon as possible or if needed, and of course I agreed.
After a few days of planning and thinking of what I really wanted to find, I left Volterra in the private jet that took me to France and to my past. When arriving I could not recognize much, but since I had done my research I knew exactly where I wanted to be and where I had to go, so after dropping my things at the hotel I got into a rented car and drove to the record hall, since my father had been adviser to King Robert II, I knew I would find what I needed of my father there, I went through hundreds of old books and letters at normal human speed, which got on my nerves to be honest until finally my father’s name came up and with it where I could find what I needed and most important my family tree that sadly ended with me, since I had been an only child because my mother perished when I was little, and something that I had never before seen caught my eyes, my own death was marked under my name 1010- 1029 AD , I paused a little after seeing that , not even imagining what it had been for him, to first loose his wife then his only child, and I could not help but feel guilty for the pain I caused him.
I kept my search throughout the days , reading and trying to find out more about my family, I then traveled to every town that was mentioned in my research ,I was determined to find out about the accident that killed my mother but reaching a dead end, I tried to seek out more about how my disappearance had been dealt with and when they determined that I had died that same year I disappeared which was true I was 19 and forever will be, but I needed to know what happen, it was then I started to regret having waited so long to do this, because there was little for me to find at the moment and I was moving all over France something I did not mind ,and it was then that I found another thing about my father and that was how he died, it was very sad for me to read that Jacques Rosseau had died at the age of 75 laying frozen in the cementery by his wife and daughters grave, it was then the my guilt hit me even more for leaving him the way I did knowing that he died alone. It was in that moment that I stopped my search I could not take it anymore, so I decided it be best to leave it buried in the past and continue with my life after all there was nothing that I could do to change what happen so I left Reims and went back to Paris and stayed there a little more time to clear my head before heading back to Volterra.
One thing was on my mind and I believe it will be there for the rest of my eternal life “Things happen for a reason”.
Grazie Mother, you are to kind to me always have been, indeed they do happen for a reason I understand that now and be sure I will ask you in case I do change my mind.
