An Interactive Twilight Experience.
Athenodora Volturi has not received any gifts yet
A sit in the sauna, believe it or not, is quite relaxing. The silence, darkness and sound of the water hitting the rocks turning instantly to steam is a sort of comfort for me. Sulpicia awaits me there but I feel the need to pen a few lines before I go.
Caius is off somewhere with some bit of work, I'm sure. He is a dedicated man, always, to his wife, family and his work, though not necessarily in that order. Of course you know I'm just joking. He is, first and foremost, a dedicated husband. I am blessed to be his wife and to stand beside him as we both glide through this existence.
No place makes me happier than to be by his side. Some mistakenly think the wife of Caius is laying in decay wasting away out of boredom but I assure you, there is much to be done both work-wise and recreationally. One of our favourite outings is to head into town just before the pubs close. The scents of alcohol and adrenaline are invigorating and hunting with my husband is one of the most incredible activities that I look forward to. The other being quite a private affair, if you know what I mean.
His rigid and stoic mannerisms cease the moment our chamber door closes. Once alone he lets down his guard and the man I fell in love with takes me into his embrace and the entire world could be crumbling down around us and I'd not so much as notice a single thing. He is my world, my reason to exist and my eternity.
I should tell you a bit about my past, and I shall but I will save that for another day. I'll finish this up for now. I am to meet Sulpicia in the spa and don't wish to be too terribly late.
...the flowers do their courtship dances to entice the bees. The bees oblige, mesmerized and completely captivated by the flower's stunning, colourful display. The grapevines have bright green leaves, still in their infancy, facing the sun and taking in all of it's warmth. Springtime has arrived, fully, in Volterra.
My favourite times are the moments Caius and I share, slowly walking between the rows of grapevines hands…Continue

I contemplate the deepest parts of winter. Temperatures don't matter to us. We neither feel hot nor cold so it's always perfect for us. We do keep the castle at a balmy 17 degrees (celsius), to keep our guests at their happiest.
Caius has a lot of business contacts and entertaining them is something that pleasures him greatly. We have had a few lately that he is so happy with due to his vineyard business being successful. Our grounds are vast and of course we don't tend our own grapes.…

It's unseasonably warm for February which has brought a significant increase of tourism to our small community of Volterra. Most are yearning for a break from their monotonous lives and a peek into an ancient culture with a vast, beautiful landscape, unlike their doldrum views from their kitchen sinks at home.
I take advantage of such breaks in the weather and have spent many a day out in the courtyard listening to Alec and Jane and Demetri and Corin as they chit-chat and laugh about…
