The day is warm and calm, unlike the sadness buried deep within the heart of Adeline.
Life sometimes takes a cruel and unjust turn and we never really know why these things happen, but you are apt to think there has to be a reason...isn't there?
She looks out onto the sun's reflection on the ripples in the water. Ripples go on till they are blocked by the edge of the pool, but do they end? Are they not bounced back to return whence they came? Feeling tired she retreats to her bedroom. The room once shared with the love of her life. She walks through her lovely home. Childrens laughter an echo in her mind.

We sometimes wonder the cause and effect of our decisions. Adeline has no regrets nor does she carry any grudges. She never has. Full of life and love. I wonder how she could ever forgive me for the things I had done.
Flashes of memories past ease in and out of her daydreams.

I am always with her. The guilt I carry is unforgiving, it is always with me. If I could make it right I would, but I lost that chance a long time ago.

I am Abigail, though you can't see me and nor can she. I will take you on the paths of our lives. Through the shame and humilation to forgiveness and love. Through growth and mending of hearts. I now take you back...back in a place where children lived and grew. Our parents Austin and Georgia were prim and proper. We were told to call them Father and Mother. Affection was something they just did'nt show very often. They didn't hug and kiss, well at least not where we could see them. Father ruled the house which included us and Mother ruled everything else. Our brother Joseph, he and Father didn't seem to get along very much, but we can get back to him in a little bit.. She became heir to Father's business and Estate. This house has been in our family a very long time it was only fitting that it would all been left to her. She never really sought out fame or fortune. She never really wanted unneccessary attention. She did not brag, she stayed true to herself and to her belief system. Flaunting did not belong in her vocabulary. Above all, she loved all those around her, even strangers. Always quick to forgive and always ready to help someone in need. You see Adeline was and is the better of us all. I was always envious of her. Her beauty, her life, her innocence. I wanted it all even what was hers and I was going to get it. Father sat there reading the morning paper in his robes at the head of the table. Mother at the other end, while we all sat around them. I knew as a child we had lots of money. Very old money. I could not understand why Adeline seemed to ignore that fact. What ever I wanted I got. Father may not have been very affectionate, but he did give me what I wanted when ever I wanted it. It just didn't seem to matter to him what the requsest was or from whom he took it and I didn't really care just as long as I got it. Watching the interaction between Father and Adeline. I caught out of the corner of my eye that he had hugged her. In my mind it was clear that he loved her more. It seemed to me that she got more attention from him then I did or even our brother did. She had lots of friends. Her best friend is Madeleine. She had a boyfriend too, Gabriel. She called him Prince Gabriel. I know now why she called him that, but then I know everything now, that I didn't know then. See when you are in the place I am you see everything. You know everything. Father forbade her to see him. It was against his rules. He would be furious if he knew. Our brother Joesph argued alot with Father. Joesph was free spirited and did not want to follow Father's footsteps. He didn't want to run the family business. His dream was art and music. I could hear them shouting at one another often. That night I heard the door slam and it was a very long time before I saw...well I should say before my family saw him again. I am Abagail and this is my story. This is what I once looked like....having had the chance to really see myself apart from the whole...there is a whole new light that shines..... but I have to go now. I am being called...but I will return. See you in a couple of weeks. May your light always shine bright. Love Abagail

I love how you took the house and then turned it into a character and made her the focus of the story with Abigail. \:\) The house totally drew me in. Is it my imagination or is the house decor warmer and more lived-in in the present compared to the past? Love how you slowly introduced Abigail as the narrator (without anyone knowing she was the narrator) and then gradually introducing more of her as a character in the story to the final screenshot where she dominates the scene, the mirror, and the story. Can't wait to read more!! \:rah\:
