An Interactive Twilight Experience.
Being a nomad simply means one has no home and never stays in one place for long. Thats what I was up until a few years ago. I came to Forks, as a friend of Carlisle's, to aid in witnessing to the Volturi. Being opposed to the Volturi, I loved the opportunity to stand up to them, especially to save an innocent child. Soldiers fight for the innocent and protect their freedoms. Little did I know, I'd meet my soul mate.
I was married prior to my change. Martha was my world. We had our first, Thomas, 10 months after our wedding in 1771. We welcomed Mary in 1772 and Anne in 1775. I spent my days working as a blacksmith, just like my father. It was customary for the wife to take care of the house. We also had a little farm. Just after we lost Anne to Pneumonia, I was called away to serve in the Revolutionary War. I was a broken man due to the death of my youngest child and I left, broken. Just like today, if you are called to serve, you couldn't exactly say no. To this day I have never lost the love for my family. Until I met Kate, I was still a broken man because I never really had the chance to mourn Anne and to mourn the fact that I didn't get to go back and be with Martha, Thomas and Mary being that I was bitten.
The day I met Kate, I felt that part of my undead heart heal. I almost feel she was sent to me to fill a void that had been empty for so long. She makes living an immortal life worth living. If I have to spend eternity in this world, I'm glad I get to spend it with her at my side. I told her I'd follow her anywhere and I was serious about that. I was a wanderer, with no place to call home. Now I am home. Home is with Kate.
