I bet you can guess who I am..  and.. I bet you are as surprised as I am that the Watcher has chosen me for her Dynaty! If you remember, the last time that the Watcher told a story with me in it.. well let’s just say.. I was not portrayed especially well.  Just in case you still can’t work out who I am, I will give you some hints.. These are my flatmates:

2.jpg
3.jpg
4.jpg

Ok. So are we on the same page now? I’m Dina.. Dina Caliente. But because my Watcher absolutely hates my last name and couldn’t have it for 10 more generations.. she changed it to White.. Which incidently led to this..

5.jpg

I was feeling ashamed. My Mum told me I was not only abandoning this “family” by entering into this ‘foolish escapade’ but by not allowing our name to continue on throughout the generations was selfish and thoughtless. She ended the conversation by telling me that if I do leave this house – she will find it difficult to forgive me, let alone acknowledge me

6.jpg

After some serious soul searching and trying to talk to my sister about this.. with absolutely NO help.. I decided to go ahead. Why not? Nina or my Mum have always been the ones to shine on this forum and I thought that for once I SHOULD be selfish and thoughtless.. so why not annoy Mum completely and decide to begin my Dynasty with a.. well I want to say Man.. well with.. him..

7.jpg

Yep, I know it’s hard to believe. I fell in love. You can say what you like about him, use whatever you think is the correct terminology, but all I know is that he listened to me, he made me smile and more importantly, he made me feel loved.

8.jpg

Our first kiss was a little lack lustre. Yes, hearts were going off all over the place, but he was just so solid. Yes, that is the only word I can think of.. solid. Like a statue

9.jpg

After a few average starts and a number of misses in the flirting and being flirted with game, we finally hit our stride. Maybe it was a Human to Vampire issue.. or maybe we were just one of those couples that needed some time to warm up to each other… well .. romantically.. but we did it. Caleb makes my toes curl and my body shiver – not in fear but in joy and happiness. I have never felt so alive. So our serious dating began

10.jpg

The surprise on Caleb’s face when we went to an experimental restaurant was so funny. I know that he can still eat human food, and he is also a foodie.. what was surprising to him was the lack of Plasma dishes on the menu.. Ok, when I say surprised? I really mean annoyed

11.jpg

However, once the incredible food was delivered he couldn’t help but revel in the taste and the gorgeous way it was presented to us

12.jpg

I am so thankful for his smile

13.jpg

At the end of our meal I asked him to stand with me as I wanted to talk to him about something.. Now, I’m not sure if he knew what was coming or if I just looked up at the wrong time.. I will let you decide

14.jpg

Caleb Vatore, love of my life, man of my dreams and my waking moments. I hold this ring in the hope that you will agree to become my Family. My family that I want to grow and cherish, love and nourish throughout my life. It is also my hope that you will watch over them for all of your eternity. I am trusting you with my heart, my soul and my happiness. Please Caleb.. will you accept this ring and marry me?

15.jpg

*crickets chirping*

16.jpg

My heart was sinking, I could see the next chapter of my life disappearing before my eyes.. but wait.. it wasn’t my life disappearing.. where did my ring go?

17.jpg

“It’s here my love. On my finger. Is this not what you would expect me to do? Have I done the incorrect action in accepting your kind offer?” Caleb said responding to my horrified look

18.jpg

It was the perfect response. I mean the absolute perfect response. I could not have chosen a more perfect being.

19.jpg
Watcher note.. For the first time in 5 year... I have actually finished this story!

So toady is the day. Today I get to marry Caleb and start my new life. I am, well, anxious.. thrilled, terrified, sad, excited.. I am all of those emotions and more. Growing up, I had no idea that when I married, I would be completely alone. Not when I am with Caleb.. but the leading up to it. No one to help me do my hair, pick my dress or even to share a glass of nectar with. But I take a deep breath and go up to meet him.. being alone is NOT my fault.. I was not the one to cut all ties with my family.. they were. So I continued up the stairs with determination and happiness

1.jpg

Of course he is not alone. He is so charming and charismatic, people just flock to him. My he looks handsome in his formal wear

2.jpg

I am so lucky. I just feel the tension from before just fall away.. I am ready

3.jpg

The watcher decides that my museum is not private enough.  Apparently Caleb knows just the place

4.jpg

Of course!!! I have always dreamt of a park like this. It just appeared a few months ago and to be honest, I have not even had the chance to visit it yet. How amazing that the first time I come here, is to Marry my soul mate

5.jpg

Suddenly I am running. I am running as fast as I can. I just can’t get to Caleb fast enough, I can’t wait to be standing next to him, having him hold my hand

6.jpg

I can see him waiting and it warms my heart to see that he is smiling too

7.jpg

8.jpg

“So my beloved” Caleb says “Are you ready to be joined together in matrimony?” Then he leaned towards me and bowed.
“Is this too formal for you?” He says with a twinkle in his eye

9.jpg

I sigh. Such an incredible feeling to have that one being on earth hold you and touch you with so much tenderness and love

10.jpg

If I had any doubts at all about marrying Caleb, they were all wiped away with the way he was looking at me now.

11.jpg

“Do not fear this life my love. I have no concerns for our attachment. Although I will live longer than you, you will be loved long after you have left this plain.” Caleb then wiped my tears and kissed my cheek.

12.jpg

He always knows how to calm me

13.jpg

We then proceeded to exchange our vows

14.jpg
15.jpg
16.jpg

I don’t think this moment could have been any more perfect.

17.jpg
18.jpg

We are married!! I have just moved in with him and the first thing I want to do?

19.jpg

I am nervous and so very excited.. my wedding night. I am sure that he is waiting for me upstairs. I only wish that I was more familiar with my new home.  I now have a sister as well, her name is Lilith and she is younger than Caleb. I have no idea by how much, he just told me she was his little sister.. Wow.. did you feel that gust of wind?

1.jpg
2.jpg

My love was waiting for me upstairs in his bedroom. He promises me that a new bedroom will be set up for us in my favourite colours and style very soon. I cannot quite believe how lucky I am to be here right now.

3.jpg

We giggled and snuggled and committed ourselves to each other all over again. I teased him on his age, and he teased me with his Vampire fangs

4.jpg

This is me trying not to laugh.

5.jpg

I feel, rather than see Lilith enter the bedroom, I begin to say hello, but one look from Caleb makes me stop. I decide that perhaps now is the right time to have a shower.

“I sense that you are not entirely impressed with my betrothed, sister” Caleb says with a smirk

7.jpg

“This is not amusing Caleb. You are putting that young child’s life in danger! Not to mention your own!”

“Child Lilith? She is hardly a child” Caleb narrowed his eyes in warning

“We may still be Young Adults – technically my brother – but that Child..” A hiss from Caleb stopped her short “Yes Caleb.. that CHILD is going to cause problems..mark my words” with the end of that comment, Lilith turned and left.

8.jpg

I thought I would leave the siblings to work out whatever it is that is bothering them and explore my new home. As I think only Caleb and I will be eating human food, I decide to cook. After glow they call it.. this feeling of happiness, contentment and being bullet proof. Then I look up and notice something

9.jpg

Mmm, now I am brought back to reality.. This is really surreal. Cobwebs..

10.jpg

I promise myself that I will clean those up as soon as I can and then I hear my Caleb coming down the stairs. Suddenly I am in his arms and his is kissing me

“My love. I would like to formally introduce you to my Sister. Lilith

11.jpg

“It is lovely to meet you Dina White” Lilith says politely “It is unpleasant, however, that you are now residing here with us” Lilith then looked at Dina with a smile.


12.jpg

I’m stunned! I knew that things were going to be awkward for a little while, but I certainly did not expect such a hostile welcome. I was quite verbal about it too

13.jpg

I was trying to talk with Lilith, ask her why she would talk with me like that, why is it so unpleasant that I moved in, when Caleb interrupted me

“Please my love, calm yourself” Caleb says with infinite patience

14.jpg

“A Child. She is just a child Caleb. Where is her patience, her class, her style?” Lilith put her hands on her hips with clear confusion and disdain. Caleb clenched his eyes and hissed under his breath
“That is ENOUGH”

15.jpg

“You cannot continue with this farce Caleb, I am telling you this Child..” Lilith raised her hand to point “is going to be more trouble in her very short lifetime”

16.jpg

My speech was gone, I just couldn’t think of a response at all. Was this a threat? Was she even actually talking to me? I felt my mouth go slack

17.jpg

Very softly, and controlled Caleb responded “I said enough Lilith. When Dina retires for the evening, you and I will discuss this. Not another word”

Yes, that is my husband


18.jpg

I decide to leave shortly after finishing my dinner. I am hoping that this can be sorted out quickly. It is quite a dampener to my night..

“What is it Lilith? What would cause you to be so rude and abnoxious to my wife?”

“Sit with me Caleb”

Caleb remained standing, staring at his sister.

“Please Caleb” Lilith asks again “Please sit down with me, we have much to discuss” She begins to lower herself in the chair and looks at her brother with a smile.


19.jpg

“I am astonished at your lack of respect. Why Lilith? Why would you start an argument with my wife? Are you threatened? Do you feel that my attention will be diverted from you to her? Is this mortal jealousy?” Caleb’s anger was completely under control, he opened his arms to indicate he was ready to talk


20.jpg

“I understand that you are angry Caleb, I believe that I would have been too. But you must know that this has nothing to do with that Child, is has to do with you and your safety”

21.jpg

“We once lived in such a wide world, full of Vampires, Warewolves, Witches.. even Faries . Taking a Mortal for a wife was tolerated. We are now living in a tiny world where we are a minority.” Lilith leans further towards Caleb “I do not care that you married her, I am delighted that you love her and I can see that she loves you, but if something happens to her there is no one.. and I mean no one else to blame!”


22.jpg

“We have been thrown into a town as an experiment. We have been uprooted and the rules have changed” tears started to well up in her eyes “We are not welcome here Caleb, and I think you know that. I think that you are trying hard to not acknowledge that fact.  No one else was invited to witness your wedding Caleb.. surely that tells you something!”

“We had our reasons Lilith. Reasons that you are not entitled to know. But here is something that you should know” Caleb rises from his chair “I will NOT tolerate your disgraceful behaviour towards my wife, if you force me to choose between you Lilith, you will not like my decision”

“You would choose that Child? That.. girl?” Lilith sneered



23.jpg

“I believe that you already know my answer to that question”

Lilith sighed.. “I will do my best brother”

Caleb left the table, but before he reached the stairs he said “I would expect nothing less from you my sister”

@KTK10 In case I haven't mentioned it before somewhere, I absolutely love the makeovers you give to Townies! It's so "easy" to make a CAS Sim look good, when you can tweak every aspect of them. The true talent, which you have, is in taking an ordinary to slightly more than average looking Townie and turning them into hunks/babes! I would never have recognized Dina, and it took me a minute to recognize Lilith after you showed her outside with her "normal" hair and then the makeover once she was inside. Well done and please let tomorrow come quickly ;-D

@Magpie2012  What a lovely thing to say! Thank you so much. I have always had fun 'tweaking' these incredible Townies!  I appreciate you reading. Next update coming up now:

I feel sad today and I don’t know why? I have heard that after all the wedding celebrations and excitement, comes a low.. but I didn’t really have any celebrations… although I did have some of the excitement .. I guess.

1.jpg

I see Lilith come in and think perhaps now is the time to try and make amends, if not for me, but for my darling Caleb. I begin by opening my arms and clear my face of any negativity and greet her..

2.jpg

“I see what you are doing Child, and I am willing to be more cordial towards you”

3.jpg

“But please be remember.. I have warned you and I will not do it again. Am I making myself clear?”

4.jpg

I left without replying.. I have no idea what she means by “I have warned you”.. Is she going to bite me? Drink my blood?.. Worse.. ? I am so unsure as to what to do.. I do not want to trouble my Caleb, but I do need to talk to someone!

“Hey! How’s it going out there in the big world? Loving the life of the ‘Vamp Queen’? Got a good instant family there huh?? What about your poor Mum? Given any thought to her Ms White”

Oh Gawd.. not now..

5.jpg

This man used to be my friend.. he used to protect me and even for an instant there when I was younger.. I actually thought he cared for me too. After everything that I had been through over the last few days.. I had to set a few records straight

6.jpg

I’m guessing it didn’t go down too well

7.jpg

“Well then.. I’ll just leave you to it. You and all your friends” Don smirked as he walked away. The sad thing was? I looked around and there was no one

8.jpg

I swear I could hear laughter from somewhere

9.jpg

“And then I shall wield my power and control is mine!” Caleb’s eyes grew wide with concentration

10.jpg

“Oh Brother, you do amuse me with your lights and fancy. But must you always recite those bothersome poetry books some old Master Vampire has written” Lilith felt the first feelings of mirth since Dina had moved in, it was refreshing.

11.jpg

“It is a weakness my dear sister! Is it wrong to enjoy some ancient writings?”

12.jpg

“Ancient writings Caleb? Oh my goodness! More like a strolling minstrel if memory serves me correctly?”

“Oh my Lilith! I believe you are correct!” Caleb exclaimed with a laugh

13.jpg

“Come sit with me brother, I have thoughts I would like to share”

“I will NOT discuss this again Lilith.. I am sure that any debate on my wife has been put to rest” Caleb’s warning could not have been clearer

“I will do as you ask brother, please.. just sit with me.” Caleb grabbed a seat

“I think that the Child is sad.. Before you say anything, let me continue.. I think that you need to take her somewhere for some fun.”

“Are you beginning to like her my Sister?” Caleb raised his brow “I am confused by your need to look after her emotional well being”

“If you wish me to reside here with her, then I will insist on at least impersonating some type of..” *cough* “happiness”

14.jpg

 What a change a day can make! I get home and immediately Caleb and his sister decide to take me out.. to the Geek Com! We didn’t even get time to change out of our workout gear! Oh my goodness.. there’s the Super Lama!! Oh.. hang on..I have to turn around.. that’s Mum!

15.jpg

“This was NOT what I had in mind brother” Lilith sneered

“I know” Caleb responds with a chuckle


16.jpg

I was watching Mum talking with Marcus and for a moment I was struck with pangs of homesickness. So much of me wanted to run over and greet her.. I soon realised that I looked AWFUL in my workout stuff.. so I ran quickly to change

17.jpg

By the time I returned they were gone. Part of me was relieved, but also curious.. maybe there is hope? Maybe if I tried? Deciding to shake my head of any thoughts of my ‘old’ family,  I soon  heard that there was a Video Gaming taunament.. why not?? How fun!!

18.jpg

I was soundly thrashed.. not only by some woman with white hair and shockingly green eyebrows, but by Geoffrey himself!!

19.jpg

I think some more practice is in order.. LOL

20.jpg

“Lilith, don’t you think it’s time to perhaps leave?” Caleb asked quietly so only she could here

21.jpg

“Of course my brother.. just after I state my hunger”

22.jpg

I’m getting a bit confused lately.. I can’t hear the watcher. I mean in her Cloudbringer Dynasty she was talking with Alena all the time, giving her encouragement .. isn’t it weird that I haven’t heard a thing? Maybe the rules of this Dynasty are different.. maybe she isn’t allowed to say anything to me?.. And where are all the stats? I swear I have seen Caleb and Lilith break some of the rules.. Oh well.. who am I to complain? I am so lucky just to be with the man that I love

2.jpg

“Oh for goodness sake.. this child is exasperating..” Lilith rolled her eyes at Dina’s perceived stupidity

3.jpg

“I think I’ll go out dancing.. by the look of these two, I would consider it better not to be here” Lilith was peering through the window at her brother and the woman that she calls Child   

4.jpg

“My love, you look troubled. How may I assist?” Caleb stared at his wife with an encouraging smile

5.jpg

“Come to me, let me peer into those luminous eyes. I wish to help you my cherished wife”

6.jpg

I got lost in his embrace and the enthral of his stare. How could anything be wrong when I can see my world in front of me smiling, encouraging and loving me. I am quick to explain that nothing is wrong and that I am so very happy and lucky to be with him

7.jpg

“I can see that my warning has gone unheeded.. I can do nothing but watch this peaceful world that we worked hard to create, fall apart..”

8.jpg

So, just then.. in the bathroom.. Caleb  told me he wanted to start a family! A family??!!  I am just catching my breath about being a wife and losing my first family (that is what I am calling them now.. my first family) I am not sure if I am ready to be a Mum yet.. but seeing as Caleb has already super speeded upstairs.. I have no choice but to follow… although I am a little bit excited in the prospect of cementing my position within this new family so soon.. I mean.. so many generations will have gone by before the end of this challenge, this is my way of being remembered always

9.jpg

Yep.. I think that I have done it!

10.jpg

“It is done”

11.jpg

“.. *sigh* it is done”

12.jpg

OMG!!! I’m pregnant!!!

13.jpg

I am stunned to realise how incredibly excited I am! I rush off to tell my amazing husband! How clever am I?? I was BORN to create this child!

14.jpg

“You are with child? My beautiful Dina, you have made me the happiest entity in this universe” Caleb’s smile showed his bliss and contentment at the news

15.jpg

“Shall we celebrate my wife? Would you care to perhaps go dancing?”

16.jpg

Huh? Oh yes.. already changed and ready to go! It’s like he can read my mind

17.jpg

Wow.. I have walked past this club a number of times, I’ve even been in here with my first family.. but tonight? I feel like I am seeing it for the first time!

18.jpg

“I feel that I may be overdressed for this establishment.. perhaps the lounge may have been a more appropriate venue?”

I Have only 2 complaints... Well, 1 is a complaint, the other is a correction :-)

Caleb just doesn't seem like Caleb without his original hairstyle, although, that could just be because I love that style myself lol (ok, complaint done)

Now for the correction: you said she was beaten by Malcolm, but, it was actually Geoffrey :-)

Ok, the good stuff: I am absolutely loving Lilith! I can't wait to see how she goes in this story. And, I had to giggle when Dina was wondering why the Watcher wasn't talking to her :-) Although, now, I'M wondering why the Watcher isn't talking to her lol

Great chapters and I can't wait for more ;-D

@Magpie2012  First of all.. THANK YOU! I can't believe I wrote Malcolm instead of Geoffrey  :o I have since fixed it. Also.. I know how you feel about Caleb's hair.. he just doesn't look the same. but there is a reason for that later (which you will find out!) I would have changed it just for you, but I have actually written almost all of this story so it's too late to change it now! As for the watcher not talking to Dina.. well.. she isn't actually doing a dynasty/legacy or anything.. she just thinks she is  ;)

I know I have often started stories here and never finished them, so this time I played all the way through to the end and have the story almost completely finished (only 2 chapters left to pre write! But lots more chapters to post)  I had promised myself not to ever post a story again until I had it all written up and ready to go!

I am planning on putting another chapter up soon! I hope everyone is enjoying it and it isn't too heavy or disjointed! Thanks so much for reading. I love getting feedback, it makes me smile.  ;D

Lol no sweat. We all make little oops like those. I'm pretty sure my posts are full of them as spelling is not my strong suit and spellcheck doesn't always like me :-)

I'm glad that there's a legit reason for the change in hair, I would have hated to lose all that hotness unnecessarily :-)

Nope, not too heavy or disjointed. I'm loving it all the way!

@Magpie2012   :)

New post coming up... NOW! hehe


“It is favourable to see you come with us tonight Lilith” Caleb smiles at his sister

“It seems like there was some type of celebration in the air brother, how could I have resisted?” Lilith responded

I was just thrilled to see Lilith and Caleb get along, even more, she wanted to spend some time with us.. dare I say it... as a family! I thought some nice conversation and maybe a dance together might start to build some well needed bridges between us.. and what a way to start!

1.jpg

I suddenly thought it might be nice to talk about fashion. I mean, what girl isn’t obsessed with amazing shoes and incredible dresses?!  I even went so far as to perhaps…suggest.. that possibly.. a party outfit might be more comfortable for Lilith rather than her gorgeous formal dress.. she complied! Although by the look on her face, I think I may have slightly stepped over the new ‘friendship’ boundaries

2.jpg

“Is this where I thank you child for your well meaning but completely unwanted advice?” Lilith said without emotion

I could do nothing but stare.. as I had no idea how to respond to her

3.jpg

“Perhaps you should join your husband for a dance, I will join you in a moment”

4.jpg

“I know you are pregnant Child.. This is not something you should celebrate.. you should be afraid”

5.jpg

What did she just say? Did I hear her correctly?

6.jpg

“You felt it dear Lilith? Did you feel our life force being created?” Lilith could hear the pleasure in Caleb’s voice

“Indeed.  We are walking on such dangerous ground now my brother, these people will not forgive us OR our kind if something should happen to this woman. Have you not seen her friends?  Even if they are few, humans will pull together when disaster strikes.. and believe me.. it will be noticed if something goes wrong. This.. what do you call it?.. Marriage?..is a first of it’s kind in this world, eyes are watching us” Lilith’s concern and disdain was clear

7.jpg

“You will be mindful of your tone Lilith. My marriage to Dina is one made from love and deep affection, I will have you stop alluding to it being otherwise. This talk of something happening to Dina must desist immediately. Am I making myself clear?”

“Perfectly” Lilith responds dutifully

8.jpg

Gosh I am hoping that Caleb is trying to get Lilith out of her mood.. I just couldn’t stand anyone ruining this night for either of us

9.jpg

“Hiya Dina! How’s life treating you over in the dark city?” Jade asks as she wonders up

I explain that although Forgotten Hollow gets darker quicker and stays darker longer.. it’s got some beautiful lakes and loads of wildlife and is in fact quite beautiful

“Huh.. well maybe I should check it out someday.. Oh hey! Isn’t that your sister over there?” Jade says as she keeps walking towards the dance floor

10.jpg

11.jpg

I know it’s silly.. but I think I should go over there and say Hi.. I mean we haven’t really spoken since I left and I just know that once she finds out that I’m pregnant she will be thrilled

12.jpg

But before I could even get up off my stool, Nina is already beside me.. looking at me .. with a smile! I let out a small sigh of relief

13.jpg

We manage to talk for ages, whispering jokes and talking about our past.. my heart lifts! How wonderful to have my sister back in my life. So I decide to share with her my most precious news

14.jpg

“You ..are…WHATt?” Nina snarls

15.jpg

I must have misunderstood her, I am in such a happy bubble I am so sure that she will be as thrilled as I am

16.jpg

“Excuse me Lilith, I expect that I will be needed” Caleb forces a smile on his face as he rushes to his wife’s aide

17.jpg

“I thought you had changed your selfish ways Dina.. How could you do this to our Mother? How could you bring an abomination into this family?”

I feel anger and despair rush through my veins, and those feelings quickly turn to fury. I grit my teeth and remind my sister that our Mother threw me out of the ‘family’.. That I know longer even use the name Caliente.  Her response is a stare that seems to be filled with hatred

18.jpg

“It seems my wife does not need my interference after all” Caleb thinks with some pride

19.jpg

“Although I conclude that a discussion of sorts must be had with that young lady.. and soon”  Caleb stares after Nina with some thought

20.jpg

I am calmer than I thought I would be.. I don’t even watch her walk away.. I take a deep breath and I can feel my Caleb near me.. yes.. I am stronger than I thought.

21.jpg

“Mmmm..” Lilith sighs.. “.. and so it begins”

Oh my gosh... I hope this isn't a foreshadowing of a "Twilight" style birth O_O not that I have anything against those books, but, I really don't want to see Dina get hurt. Especially not by birthing her own child :-(

I really am loving this!

@Magpie2012  Hi! Although I am actually a big fan of the twilight series, I can promise you that there will be no love triangle and Dina DEFINITELY does not turn into a vampire.. and there will be no death by childbirth.. but that is all I will be promising! hahaha  I am very happy that you are loving this!  ;D

Lol ;-D I am very relieved to hear that. I'm secretly a Twilight series fan myself, the books, not so much the movies... Although, that fight scene they added really blew me away! I was watching and thinking, but, I don't remember this... Did I just forget that it was there?

@KTK10

What a wonderful story! I have never, ever seen Dinal look lovelier!
I'm enjoying your twist of Dina being caught up in some humans vs vampire scenario.
Confession: I have really come to dislike Lilith Vatore. In both my first (failed) and second (on hiatus) attempts at a Rival Dynasties Challenge, Lilith clings incessantly and excessively to Caleb. The way Lilith is always following Caleb around and interfering with his relationships in my gameplay, I really think she's got inappropriate feelings for her brother. 
Okay, got that off my chest.

Poor Dina, though! She truly has no one on her team except Caleb!
Can't wait to see how the story unfolds!

@Magpie2012 - I was exactly the same! First of all I was yelling at the screen saying "that didn't happen!!" then I was.. "this is AWESOME!" hahaha

@oshizu - I know what you mean. When I did my Cloudbringer Legacy (abandonded) Dina was ALWAYS around Don. and Don was the spouse of my founder. She never stopped showing up everywhere and I really started to dislike her.. So any game since then, whenever I have seen her or she shows up I'm like "go away!"  The only way I could figure out to tolerate her, was to create a story around her and give her a personality that I could handle.. :P  So I do understand when a Townie annoys you to the point that you can't even read stories with them in it!

Lilith can be.. shall we say.. creepy??  but the more I write about her the more I love her.. I hope you get to see another side of her as the story unfolds!!

As always.. thanks to everyone for reading! ;D

@KTK10 OMG! I know, right! And when they ripped off Carlisle's head, I literally burst into tears! I just... I couldn't! It was waaay too much.

@oshizu I've often thought that Lilith wishes she wasn't related to Caleb. In my head they're like step-siblings lol It makes her clinginess easier to tolerate ;-D

@Magpie2012  - I also cried with Seth and Leah! I always disliked Leah's character in the books (as well as the movie) but in Breaking Dawn 2.. when she gave her life for Esme??? Tears.. great big shoulder heaving tears!!!

Next chapter Guys!

I am woken by the most beautiful music coming from downstairs and I’m shocked to see Lilith playing the pipe organ and smiling with such tranquillity

1.jpg

I turn to see my wonderful husband enjoying a game a chess and ask him if he enjoyed his evening last night as much as I did

2.jpg

“My enjoyment was watching your smile grow each time we danced, it was good that we went” Caleb rushed over for a morning kiss. “I hope that Lilith’s playing did not disturb your slumber”


I couldn’t respond straight away, I was just stunned at the music I was hearing.  How could I have not known about her incredible talent?

3.jpg

“There are many things that are good about my sister, my love..” Caleb says quietly

4.jpg

“But also many that are bad and wicked…”

5.jpg

6.jpg

“For we are Vamp…eye…errrrssss after all!” Caleb throws his arms into the air

7.jpg

I stare at Caleb, waiting for an explanation

“I think they say.. Gotcha!”

8.jpg

“I have been told that I need to relax, was that acceptable jesting?”

9.jpg

*crickets*

10.jpg

“Ahhh.. Perhaps it was a bit much” Caleb looks down to his shoes

I explain that making vampire jokes were indeed funny.. it was just a bit alarming hearing them from him.. he seemed to understand

11.jpg

12.jpg

“ I have an idea” Caleb suddenly blurts out

I am still processing the difference in my husband from the quiet and refined man to this energetic and joking one in front of me

“Let us Honeymoon!”

13.jpg

This is so like my marvellous husband to think of something so special.. but I am remembering this challenge and I am not sure he can initiate a trip, we haven’t even earned 50 points yet!

“I need to tell you something my sweet.. this challenge? Well.. we have failed.. some time ago actually”

14.jpg

“But don’t worry yourself, please. Our story is not over, it is only just beginning! We will carry on as before. I swear to you, our child will never be on it’s own, for as long as I live” Caleb leaned in closer to me “I will honour your name and your life, as was always the plan my love”

15.jpg

“We both will.” Whispered Lilith

16.jpg

I am torn between shock and relief. Shock that I had given up my family and my family’s name for a challenge that we were no longer a part of and relief that I can forget the rules and just freely go about my life with my new family

“Shall we go to our honeymoon my dear Dina?” Caleb asks

All I can think of is.. show me the way my dear man, show me the way

17.jpg

And what a place it is!! I can smell the trees, the grass and even can smell some rain in the air. I had no idea that I was craving these senses, that my mind was in desperate need of stress relief. I turn to thank Caleb once again for doing the perfect thing

“You are my heart, I will constantly refer to your well being”

18.jpg

19.jpg

20.jpg

This is the life

Haha, that was really fun seeing Caleb being goofy!

And good for you, making the decision to continue your story!
We will get to enjoy your story about Dina and Caleb for much longer this way!

Can't wait to see their child, by the way!

@oshizu  - Thank you! Caleb makes me laugh quite a bit, he seems to have a hidden goofy kind of trait in this file, he's always doing something funny! As for the challenge? Well there never actually was one, I just wrote it into the story as a reason for Dina moving.. it was always going to be just a short/medium story! I have played it all the way to then end and I'm not just writing up the story in the background and posting chapters when I can!

As always, thanks so much for reading and commenting  ;D

The weeks flew by. I can’t even tell you when I stopped counting the days. It was such a relief not to worry about points or about getting promotions. I just continued to call in all my vacation days and then moved on to sick days.. Knowing my husband was relaxing and watching out for me was amazing.

1.jpg

2.jpg

3.jpg

I would often walk up our wooden stairs to find him sitting there, just waiting for me

4.jpg

5.jpg

He would sometimes gaze at me, as if he was confused or astounded that I was there

6.jpg

7.jpg

But a whisper in my ear would remind me how much my husband and best friend loved me and needed me

8.jpg

The days continued to roll on.. with many times inappropriate suggestions! Haha

9.jpg

10.jpg

Apparently my pregnancy didn’t stop me from being the ‘blushing bride’ on my honeymoon.. should I feel embarrassed about that? Oh goodness.. I hope not!

After a while Caleb insisted we leave our little sanctuary and explore the beauty of the wilderness

11.jpg

Morning sickness had arrived with a vengeance and I kept finding it difficult to remain smiling. I am sure, however, that I hid it enough that Caleb never noticed

12.jpg

Marshmellows!!! Oh the pure joy or roasting something over an open fire!! And apparently our child has a bit of a hankering for them.

“Keep your stick still my love, you may find that the mellow can easily slip off” Caleb warned

13.jpg

Ummmmmmm

14.jpg

I just love how he is such a gentleman about these things and never says I told you so

15.jpg

Hey! I found one!.. do NOT ask me where! The baby wants what the baby wants..

16.jpg

We had been here for weeks and I was so relaxed, so I was a little surprised when I heard Caleb clear his throat as if he was finding it difficult to approach a subject

“I would like to speak with you about Lilith.. if I may” Caleb asked softly

17.jpg

Of course I was willing to listen to him. But Lilith seems such long way away..

“Do you truly find her so offensive?” He asks bluntly

I am not sure how I am supposed to respond. On one hand I really DO find her so offensive, but on the other hand I do realise that I don’t actually know her at all. So I take a deep breath and tell him that, no… I do not find his sister offensive… most of the time

18.jpg

“ I do understand that she is, or should I say, can be.. a difficulty. But may I be her advocate? I know that.. ….. Holy Mother of…!!!!”

19.jpg

I couldn’t stop laughing.. It was the tiniest of flames,  and my strong and immortal husband started screaming like a girl!

“You may laugh, my love. But may I remind you that fire is one of the three things that can eliminate someone like me?” Caleb solemnly reminded me.

I just looked at him with a smirk.. COME ON!! Haha

20.jpg

We made so many promises to each other, kept our honeymoon completely to ourselves

21.jpg

We created so many memories in those few weeks (which soon turned into months) memories of love and respect. Who would have thought that someone like me.. the least likely to be picked out of all of the townies, would find this much happiness?

I was rather astonished to learn that Caleb is a veteran marshmallow roaster, haha! He never ceases to surprise!

How great that Dina (who just gets lovelier and lovelier) and Caleb can enjoy this time as newlyweds, away from everything and everyone else.
But when Caleb started asking about Lilith, I worried for a moment that he would ask permission to invite her up, lol!

What a romantic, relaxing update!
