76 Years? Seems like yesterday. We’re telling the story of how we began here: http://thebontempsbelle.tumblr.com/ .
This is the story of how we’ve rekindled what we had, lost, regained, lost again, and now have again. Head spinning yet?
@MeeMawBellefleu, MY Caroline Holliday Bellefleur turned 99 just a few days ago. Considering I’m 1,502, she is just a babe in swaddling clothes. For a Human though, she is advanced in age. I know you look at the picture and think, what? She looks barely 20? That’s a combination of my blood, some ancient magicks and the will of Caroline. Yes, she hasn’t realized it, but her basic zest for life and youthful outlook contributes to the magick that keeps her young.
You are all aware of the odyssey that has been my Unlife for the last 9 months. (see prior blog posts). When I learned from my stalwart security man Joseph Di Nicola @MeeMawSecurity1 that Caroline intended to marry that Rogue Vincenzo Molinaro @VincenzoVamp it triggered what I had been denying all along.
Caroline is the one. Yes in the Vampire world she is Mine. But this was more. This was something I had locked deep away for 1,268 years. Since the day I destroyed my maker and closed that part of my life that was Human. Since I decided I would not love again like I loved the wife I lost.
I acted and whisked Caroline away before she could join That Rogue and be lost to me. I brought her to the place where I would have no interference, and where my Humanity had been left behind. Romania, the Carpathian Mountains, and the castle I had recently re-acquired. Caroline is a stubborn stubborn woman! It has taken time, patience, and most of all just being honest with her.
My Caroline values honesty very highly. It took being honest with her, and really, her being honest with herself for us to reconcile. The post title is a bit of a misnomer. Our fire has never needed rekindling. We are explosive together. I feel it and I know she does too. What’s different now?
I am being honest with myself and committing to her like she has to me. Where do we go from here? Stay tuned, it’s sure to be a wild ride and never boring!
