Wife of Vladimir
"They say when you're in love, nothing else in the world matters. They say that one can barely function when they're near the one they adore and never seem to know whether it is day or night."
"I was twenty years old when I first laid eyes upon her; The Princess Rosetta Dawn of Invea. We were to be wedded within three days time to prevent war from raging between our two Kingdoms."
"At first, I despised the idea. The thought of settling down only gave me a grave realization; I was to be Count soon for my poor father was dying of disease. I was young. I thought that if I were to not wed, to not become Count, my father would remain on this world and stay with me. He was all I had."
"But when my eyes fell upon her, I felt as though everything within me collapsed. The curls of hair like fire, lips as red as blood, and eyes like perfect emeralds, not to mention her smile. She could make the most darkest of men be delighted."
"We were soon wed three days later and were happy, despite just meeting each other. We were falling in love. As the months passed, our bond grew stronger. I was there for her and she was there for me, especially when I grew ill not more than five months after our wedding."
"Tragedies struck us too many times to count. Yet, we remained strong. We had to. Our time together was limited, but neither of us knew that at the time. We thought we had eternity. We faced every day holding the other's hand, preparing for what lay ahead. We did this for many years, together; strong and able. The events of our lives never broke us."
"But when us became I, I'll admit, I was shattered and broken, like the most precious of glasses."
"There is only one thing in this world that can kill me; the sun. But... I was foolish. I married a woman with the Sun in her name... I always thought the orb of light in the sky would be my demise. But I was wrong... It was Her..."
