The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde Chapter 1

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b408cff_7b3e41a2-1
Ralf Wylde was born into the peasant life and thus he has remained for all of his thirty-four years.  He's accepting of his lot in life and even considers himself lucky. "It could be worst" he says, "I could have been born a female."  
The laws set by those in charge don't make Ralf's life any easier, but they limit women's freedom even more so.  Women can not marry without their parents' permission, they can not own a business without special permission, they can not divorce their husbands, they can not own propety of any kind unless they are a widow and they can not inherit property from their parents if they have any surviving brothers.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b4e5f1e
Ralf lives in a small village called Willow Creek, so named for the beautiful weeping willow trees that stand on the property surrounding the creek.  All homes in the village are two room frame houses where entire families eat, sleep and spend time together.  The houses are either too cold or too hot, depending on the season, but they're always dark and damp.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b3ceae4-1
Ralf's family consists of his wife Sarah, their two sons Raulin and Garath and himself.  Ralf married Sarah when he was sixteen and she was one year younger.  Sarah was rosy-cheeked and full of energy, an even match for her big handsome husband, but every year since their youngest son was born, Sarah's health has declined.

The villagers' daily life is spent trying to grow enough food in their gardens . . .

Or catch enough fish in the creek to survive another day, another week, another month, thus another year.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_7b3e1b1e-1
One summer morning, Ralf ran into his neighbor Anne Fenton.  Anne was a large, good natured woman.  She was married to Ralf's friend Jonathon.  Anne and Jonathon had a daughter Olivia about the same age as his sons.  
"Good morning, Ralf" said Anne, "I'm on my way to your house to ask Sarah if she has any clothes that need washing."  
"You don't need to concern yourself with that.  Me and the lads can do our own wash" said Ralf.
"It's no bother.  What's a few more pairs of underdrawers going to matter" she laughed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb38b2b4
Later that day after Ralf had finished his chores, he saw Sarah coming toward him.  He still got a catch in his throat when ever he saw her.  She had always been beautiful, but even more so now.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b3e18f9
"How are you feeling my love?" he asked, while holding her in his arms.
"I was feeling a little better this morning when I first woke up, but not for long" she said, "I believe I'm go back to bed for awhile."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db3e1a8f
Sarah got into bed and was soon sound asleep. She was getting weaker and weaker every day.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_7b3e216f-1
Ralf saw Anne coming in his direction and went to meet her.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b3f7ea0
"Ralf, can I ask you something?", Anne whispered.
"Yes, we're friends" he said.
"With Sarah being so sick, don't you miss . . . well you know?" she said.
"Sarah is my wife.  I promised to be with her until we die" said Ralf.
"Sarah's the one who's sick, not you" said Anne.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b3f7e28
"Come on in for a spell.  Jonathon won't be home until supper", she said.
"Are you suggesting what I think you are?" asked Ralf.
"Yes, that's what I'm offerering" she answered.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b3f8021
Anne went into the house and Ralf followed her into her and Jonathan's bedroom.  
"Come lay down beside me" she told Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b3f8033
"Are you sure this is what you want?" he asked, "You know we can't go back to just being friends afterwards, don't you?"
"I know and it's alright" she assured him.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b3f80ba
"It's been a long time since I . . . well, you know" said Ralf.
"It's been a long time for me too", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb3b9cf3
"I don't want to wait any longer" said Ralf.
"You don't have to" Anne said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Waves
And he didn't.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b3f8151
Ralf thought about what he had done and was torn between his love for Sarah and his lust for Anne.
Now that the old desires had returned, he would have to struggle everyday with himself to remain faithful, until his beautiful, trusting Sarah was taken away from him forever.

At the end of Part I, Ralf had misbehaved badly with his neighbor Anne Fenton.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b3f8151
After thinking over what he had just done, Ralf was determined to fight his feelings of lust for Anne.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db4ea438
"Anne, that should never have happened", said Ralf, "I love Sarah and I'm going to be faithful to her from now on."
"I understand, Ralf.  It's not Sarah's fault she's sick and can't give you what a healthy man needs", said Anne.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b3ba042-1
"If you change your mind, you know where to find me", she said, "Goodbye, Ralf."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b4d8632
When he got home he gave Sarah extra attention, trying to make up for cheating on her.
"How are you feeling my love?", he asked.
"Actually I feel better since I took that nap", she answered.
"If you feel as good as you look, then you must be feeling better", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb4d85ca
"I've been practicing my painting a little every day.  I think I'm rather good now", she said, "Will you pose tomorrow for a portrait?"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b4d85bc
"You will do yourself a favor by finding yourself a better looking subject", joked Ralf.
"Well since you're  the only one handy, I guess you'll have to do", she said, going along with the joke.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b4d86b9
Before much longer, Sarah fell asleep and Ralf was left alone with his thoughts.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb4d8491
Over at the Fenton's house, Jonathan had returned home.
"I was reading and didn't hear you come in", said Anne, "Did you enjoy yourself at the alehouse?"
"Yes, just the usual", he answered.
"It was lonely here without you", she said.
"Where was Olivia?  She should have been home to keep her mother  company", he said.
"She's staying the night with Bridget Edgar", said Anne.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb4ea69b
"Come lay on the bed", she said..
"It's been a long time since we've done that", said Jonathan.
"Yes, that's just what I was telling . . . myself this afternoon", said Anne.
"So you're talking to yourself now are you?", he joked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb4ea754
"Jonathan do you want to . . .well, you know", asked Anne.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Waves
And Johnathan said, "YES!"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb4ea7fa
A satisfied Jonathan slept soundly and Anne slept peacefully, knowing she had been able to "cover her tracks".

The next morning at breakfast, Matthew Edgars asked, "Ralf, do you need me to go with you to deliver the benevolences* to the landlord?"

[The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb4c9055
"No, I best be going alone as usual.  Lord Vincent don't take too kindly to strangers", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb4d62aa
"There's always talk at the alehouse about that one.  His  odd behavior that is", said Jonathan.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb4c9025
"Lord Vincent stays in that big castle all to himself.  I wonder if he ever comes out", said Raulin.

"Has anyone besides Father ever seen him", said Garath.

"I've heard that he's an exceptionally handsome man", said Isabel Edgar.

What does Lord Vincent look like, Ralf?", asked Anne.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb4d62b3
"Lord Vincent is just a man, like any other with expensive clothes of velvet and silk", said Ralf, "There's nothing odd about that.  If I was as wealthy as him, I'd wear velvet and silk, too."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b5174b7
After breakfast Raulin helped Ralf load the  wagon, which contained the landlord's part of their weekly produce, milk and fish.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_00000004_fb4bc4c5
No matter how many times he had seen Castle Dargan, Ralf was always in awe of its beauty and size.

Lord Vincent was sitting in the courtyard practicing chess.
When Ralf approached, he asked him to join him in a game.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_5b4edbc5
"Ralf, how long have you been coming here?", he asked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_7b48fb93_db4a1096
"Since my father passed away, going on five years now", answered Ralf.
"Your father was a wonderful man.  Did he tell you, we had become good friends?", asked Lord Vincent.
"No, he never mentioned it", said Ralf.
"Won't you join me for dinner", said Lord Vincent.
"Yes, don't mind if I do", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b51763a
"I need to hire a housekeeper.  Do you know a trustworthy lady in the village who might want the position?", asked Lord Dargan.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b517694
"There's a widow lady who might be what you need", said Ralf, "Her name is Rachael Smith."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_5b517671
Bring her around tomorrow, if you will", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db5176ea
"Thank you for the meal", said Ralf, "I must be getting on home."


The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b517702
"Don't forget to ask Rachael about the position", he said.
"No, I won't forget, Lord Vincent", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb515887
As soon as Ralf returned to Willow Creek, he ran into Rachael Smith.
"Rachael, may I speak with you?", he asked.
"Of course", said Rachael, "What is it you want?"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db5158b8
"The landlord is looking for a housekeeper and I recommended you for the position", said Ralf, "I hope that was alright."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b5158f0
"Yes, thank you, Ralf", she said, "I need a way to earn some money."

To be continued . . .

Notes:
Payments to the landlord were called benevolences or aids - expressions of friendship rather than the law.  But were payments one could not refuse.

The title Lord Of the Manor is a titular feudal dignity.  The holder is entitled to call himself  Lord along with his personal name. The landlord's wife may use the title Lady along with her personal name.

The following morning at Willow Creek . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_3b53d9ba
Rachael Smith told her daughters, "I'm going to apply for the position as  Lord Vincent's housekeeper.  Ralf is going to introduce me to him today."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_bb528e20
"You're lucky to have been recomended by Ralf.  Lord Vincent wouldn't hire a complete stranger otherwise", said Matilda Holt.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_7b53d9ab
"What about us?", asked Beautrix.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_1b53db56
"Where are we going to live?", asked Alyson.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_fb53d195
"If I'm lucky enough to get the position, you girls will continue to live here", answered Rachael, "You're both quite capable of taking care of yourselves."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db34e153_1b51f6ab
"I think you will be fortunate to be able to live in a castle", said Sadie Ousby.
"If I were wealthy, I would build you your own castle", said her husband Jasper.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db34e153_7b51f953
"I don't think it's fair for Lord Vincent to be so wealthy and for us to be so poor", said Abra Ousby.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_5b53db15
"Lord Vincent inherited his wealth and position when his father died. He's entitled to it", said Ralf, who had just come in the door.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db34e153_3b51fa1e
"Why didn't we get wealthy when our father died?", asked Lucas Holt.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db34e153_bb51f650
"Because Father was a poor peasant, just like all of us here in Willow Creek", said Ben Holt.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_3b5291d7
"Are you ready, Rachael?", asked Ralf, "We need to be leaving."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_db53dbfa
"Do you think Lord Vincent will like me?", Rachael asked Ralf.
"Don't worry, he'll like you", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_00000004_fb4bc4c5
They walked for several miles until they finally arrived at Castle Dargan.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb53e23f
"The castle is even more beautiful up close", said Rachael.
"Every time I come up here I can never get over how beautiful and imposing it is", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb52ba02
Lord Vincent came out to greet Ralf.
"I presume that woman is the widow lady you spoke of", he said.
"Yes, that's Rachael Smith", answered Ralf.
"She's very beautiful", said Lord Vincent.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db52bb77
"Ralf introduced Rachael to Lord Vincent.
"Since you come highly recomended by Ralf, the position is yours, that is if you want it?"
"Yes, thank you I do."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db52b938
"Thank you for bringing Rachael to me", said Lord Vincent, "She's exactly what I need."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b52bc25
Then Ralf left to go home hoping he hadn't made a mistake by bringing Rachael to meet Lord Vincent.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb52c20e
After Ralf left Rachael followed Lord Vincent into the kitchen.
"Your duties as housekeeper will be quite simple.  There's really not that much to do except keep everything tidy, do the laundry and cook the meals", said Lord Vincent.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_9b52c23c
"That's really quite a lot, but I'm capable of handling it", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db52c22d
"Yes, I suspect you are", Lord Vincent thought to himself.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_00000004_fb4bc4c5
At Castle Dargan, Lord Vincent has hired Rachael Smith, one of the peasant women from Willow Creek to be his live-in housekeeper.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb52c3b2
"I've never in my whole life seen such a huge place", she said.
"It's actually rather small for a castle", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db52d3ae
After showing her the rest of the castle, Lord Vincent showed her to a beautifully furnished bedroom.
"This room, a small setting room and toilet are for your use", he said, "There's some clothes in the trunk at the foot of the bed that should fit you."
"Are you sure the owner won't mind me wearing her clothes?", asked Rachael.
"I'm sure. Join me in the kitchen when you've finished changing", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b52dce0-1
After she changed into one of the dresses from the trunk, Rachael joined Lord Vincent in the kitchen.
"This is delicious.  You're a very good cook", she said.
"I learned out of neccessity", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb52da2a
After they had finished supper, Rachael joined Lord Vincent in the livingroom.
"How long have you been a widow?", he asked.
"My husband Edward died nearly two years ago", she said.
"Did you have childern with him?", he asked.
"I have two daughters who live in the village", she said.
"Will they be alright without you there?", he asked.
"Beautrix and Alyson are quite capable of looking after themselves."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb52da75
"Lord Vincent, I do need to ask if I'm able to have Sundays off?  I'd like to be able to visit my daughters", she said.
"Of course", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b570a04
"Thank you for supper and a lovely evening", said Rachael, "I'll have your breakfast ready in the morning when you get up."
"Yes, I'll see you then", he said, "Goodnight, Rachael."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb570af0
"Goodnight Lord Vincent!", she called as she was leaving the room.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b545641
Rachael was soon sound asleep on the unusually soft comfortable bed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b5348d4
Vincent thought about his conversation with Rachael.  She had been a widow long enough to be pass mourning her husband and just long enough to be wanting male companionship.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_5b58135b
He stood in front of the portrait of a beautiful fair haired woman and began to cry.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b58127d-1
"I know I promised, but I can't do this anymore", he cried, "An eternity is an awfully long time.".

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb52e3b7
Meanwhile over at Willow Creek, Ralf had returned home and Sarah was waiting for him.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b55c260-2
"Do you feel like posing for your portrait now?", she asked.
"Yes, if that's what you want", he said.

Sarah had painted longer than she should and was getting tired.

Anne and Jonathan Fenton were on their way over.  Anne had gotten in the habit of cooking supper for the Wylde family along with her own.
"Jonathan I have something to tell you", said Anne.
"You look serious.  What is it you want to tell me?", he said.
"We're going to be having us another little mouth to feed", she said.
"A baby?", he asked.
"Yes a baby.  What else would you think", she said.

Your pictures are just amazing, Daisy...  extrahappy   I had to chuckle about the appearance of Anne, and she looked like a "Real - Life" Prego person... giggle   strut  

Now tell me hun, are your pics from the online TS2?  They seem to be more clear and sharper. Just wonderful, hun.  goofigirl    Did you build the Castle Dargan? Great Job if you did.  That's awesome...  confetti    Oh, and cool name "Beautrix"   lafflol    Sarah is quite an artist.

Anywho, knowing me, I will be reading these many times  over.

BBdoll,
The pictures are just the ones I take in game. I edit them in Photobucket. The castle is actually The Globe Theatre in Veronaville. The house where the Summerdreams live.
Thank you again my friend.

"Lord Vincent, I've finished the housework.  Supper will be ready in an hour", said Rachael.

"Yes, I need to do the same", she said.

"Rachael, you're doing a good job as my housekeeper", he said, "There's not too much for you to do, is it?"
"No, I like staying busy, Lord Vincent", she said.

"You don't have to call me Lord Vincent when we're alone.  Vincent will be fine", he said.
"Alright, I will", she said.
"It's getting late.  I won't keep you any longer", he said.
"Thank you Vincent.  I intend to get an early start tomorrow", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb5f4a8e
Very early the following morning, Rachael left to go to Willow Creek.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b343ccf_3b5f2482-1
After a long walk, Rachael came to the village.  Nothing had changed, but conpared to Castle Dargan it looks even more shabby than before.  Alyson ran to her mother and gave her a hug.
"I missed you so much", she said.
"I missed you too", said Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b5f2f31
"Ralf, Jonathan suspects that he's not Caleb's father.  It's just a matter of time before he notices that you're the only man in the village that has gray eyes", said Anne.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db5f2ec8
"What do you want me to do about it?", he asked.
"I'll think of something", she said, "If he asks did you and me do . . .well you know.  Tell him no.  Just deny everything."

Ralf ran into Rachael in the barn.
"How's the job as housekeeper working out for you?", he asked.

"You know that's not possible.  I'll come back next Sunday", she said.

Then Rachael left to go back to Castle Dargan.

After a long walk Rachael was able to see the castle in all it's glory.  It was indeed a beautiful place.

She was halfway up the walk when she saw Vincent coming toward her.  He took her breath away.  She didn't think she had ever seen a more beautiful man than him.
"The man and his castle, a perfect match", she thought to herself.

He grabbed her and gave her a hug.
"I was afraid you weren't coming back", he said.

"No I was waiting for you to come home", he said.
"Well I'll have something ready in a little while", she said.

Rachael prepared pork chops for herself and Vincent.
"How are your daughters getting along?", he asked.
"They miss not having me with them all the time, but they're adjusting", she said.
"How old are they?", he asked.
"Beatrix is sixteen and Alyson is fifteen and quite capable of taking care of theirselves.   I was married by the time I was Beatrix's age", she said.

After they finished their meal, Rachael sit with Vincent on the sofa in the study.
"Rachael do you like living here", he asked.
"Yes, this castle is much nicer than anywhere I've ever lived before", she said.
"I'm glad you like it.  Maybe you won't ever want to leave", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db629234
Vincent asked Rachael to come sit closer.  He put his arm around her shoulders.
"Rachael do you know what I am?", he asked.
"Yes, you're the wealthy landlord of Willow Creek", she said, "And a very handsome one at that."
"Yes I'm a landlord and yes I'm wealthy", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b629214
"You forgot to say 'I'm a very handsome man'", she said, while nuzzeling his neck.
"Alright, I'm a very handsome man", he laughed.

At Castle Dargan, Vincent was surprised by the ghost of his deceased wife.

"Vincent, how can you replace me so quickly?  We promised there would never be anyone but each other", said Tess.

"I mourned for you for the past ten years.  I can't mourn forever", he said.

She gave him a passionate kiss, but all Vincent could do was remember how it used to feel.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b6c1e94
"Tess. I want the kind of life we had.  I think I can have that with Rachael.  Please don't interfere", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b6c2a3a
Then Vincent walked out, leaving Tess alone in the dark lonely crypt.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb6a98e7-1
When he saw Rachael in the hall, he said "Rachael I need to talk to you.  Will you join me in the garden?"
"Alright Vincent", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b6a996e-Copy
They walked out into the garden together.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b6a99f0-3
"I need to tell you something.  I'm not a man like the others.  I'm a vampire", he said.
"But I thought vampires couldn't come outside in the sunlight and they drink human blood", she said.
"You're right Rachael.  Most vampires can't tolerate the sunlight and they do drink human blood, but I'm a True Blood.  I'm able to walk in daylight, eat and father childern.  The only difference in me and human men are the gifts of immortality and strength", he explained.
"How did you become a vampire?", she asked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db6a9a1a
"One night I was walking out here in the garden when a beautiful woman came up to me and asked for directions.   We started talking and before I knew what had happened, she bit me on my neck.  That was over nine years ago", he said.
"Does anyone else know?",  asked Rachael.
"No, I didn't tell anybody what happened that night", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_5b6a9a74-3
"Will you still be my housekeeper now that you know what I am?", he asked.
"Yes, I'm not afraid to be here with you.  I trust you Vincent", she said.

Ralf watched his wife as she slept.  His beautiful Sarah was getting paler and weaker every day.

He tried to prepare his sons for the inevitable. He told them  their mother had but a short time left.

While Ralf was dealing with the impending death of his wife, Jonathan was dealing with his own demons.

He told his wife Anne, "I don't feel the same as I did when Olivia was born.  There's just something not right about Caleb having gray eyes.  Are you sure I'm his father?"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b697bec
"Of course you're his father.  As to his eyes being gray, my mother had gray eyes", she  said, "Don't you remember?"
"No I didn't remember.  I'm sorry for doubting you", he said.

A short time later, Caleb grew up looking even more like his father.  Anne was proud to have such a beautiful son and . . .

Although the Fenton's daughter Olivia noticed how much her little brother favored Ralf, she kept her suspicions to herself.

Over at Willow Creek there has been no improvement in Ralf's wife Sarah's condition. It's only a matter of time before she is taken away from him forever.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_7b71373f
When Ralf went in to check on Sarah, she asked him to lay beside her and hold her until she fell asleep.  He did as she asked and soon fell asleep with Sarah in his arms.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b711659
Sometime in the early morning Sarah awoke and sit up in bed.
"Yes, I'm ready to go.  I'm so tired of waiting", she said, talking to someone who only she could see.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b71167e
She stood up, clutched her stomach and called Ralf's name.

Then she fell in a heap to the floor beside the bed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b711714
When Ralf heard Sarah call his name, he woke up but it was too late to say a last goodbye or give her a last kiss.  He mourned for Sarah even though her death was expected.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b61c289
After Ralf buried his wife of nineteen years, he took a bath to wash away the smell of death.

A plain stone headstone was placed on Sarah's grave under one of the weeping willow trees on the furthest part of the lot.

Their friends and neighbors took time from their labors to mourn Sarah and console Ralf.

Olivia Fenton was there to console Raulin and help him deal with his mother's death.

And Olivia's little brother Caleb was unaffected by the death of his neighbor.  All of his attention was on playing with the toy Ark his father had made for him.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b717278
At Castle Dargan Rachael Smith was seemingly unperturbed by Vincent's confession of a few days ago.  He had admitted to being a vampire.  Rachael trusted him and saw no reason to be afraid.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b7157d3
"I'm going on to bed.  I'm rather tired", said Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b715494
"The work here isn't too much for you is it?", asked Vincent, "I could see about hiring someone to come in during the day to help."
"No it's not too much for me", she answered.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b715851
"Goodnight Vincent", she said.
"Goodnight Rachael", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb715a70
Vincent went to bed shortly after Rachael, but the ghost of Tess climbed into bed with him and the chill awakened him. He jumped up out of bed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b715b3d
"Vincent my love what's the matter.  You use to like for me to lay close to you", she said.
"You're not the same as you were", he said.

"Is this better?", she said, becoming visable for a few moments . . .

Finding it impossible to go back to sleep, he went downstairs and started playing the piano.  The music always seemed to relax him.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b715d0d
The piano music had awakened Rachael from her slumber.
"Vincent, are you alright.  It's the middle of the night", she said.
"I'm sorry.  I didn't think.  I'd gotten so use to being alone before you came", he said.

He held her in his arms and kissed her deeply.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_5b715d98
Vincent swooped her up in his strong arms and . . .

Carried her upstairs to his private quarters.  He laid her on the soft velvet covers as gently as he could.  He gave her a long passionate kiss.

"Is it alright?", he asked.
"Yes", she answered.

"You're an incredible lover Vincent.  Ii's never felt that way with any man before", she said.

"Rachael, I'm not a man.  I'm a vampire", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Chapter 9

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb76b8ad
Having woohooed until the wee hours of the morning, Rachael and Vincent slept until noon the following day.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b716018-3
Rachael woke up and turned toward Vincent.
"Good morning", he said.
"Good morning?  It's almost afternoon", she said.
"Time is unimportant.  We can stay in bed all day if we want", he teased.
"Maybe you can, but I've got work to do", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb7160a3-2
"What's so important that you don't have time to give me a kiss?", he asked.
"I have to fix us something to eat.  Aren't you hungry?  I'm starving", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b7160d1-2
Vincent gave her a long lingering kiss.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_9b716ab6-2
"I'm going to take a bath while you're fixing our meal", he said.
"Alright but don't take too long", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b6a87de-2
Vincent took a quick bath, not wanting to displease Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb716f5b-1
"It's ready", she said, "Have a seat and I'll serve it."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb56c241
"Will you be going to visit your daughters tomorrow?", he asked.
"Yes, you know I go every Sunday. They catch me up on the latest gossip", she said.
"And what would that be?", asked Vincent.
"Oh just the usual little things.  Did you know that Jonathan Fenton's wife had a baby boy a few weeks ago?", she asked.
"Really, they must be happy about that.  Is the child healthy?", he asked.
"I guess he's as healthy as can be expected with the conditions being as they are", said Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb717016-2
After they finished their meal, Vincent hugged Rachael and said "It's a beautiful day.  Let's go sit in the garden."
"Vincent I have some cleaning to do today", she said.

There was a knock at the kitchen door.  Rachael looked out and saw her daughter Beatrix standing on the stoop.
"It's my daughter", she told Vincent.
"Well ask her to come in", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b759053
As soon as Beatrix stepped into the kitchen she said "Mother, Sarah Wylde died this morning."
"Oh no", said Rachael, "I had hoped she would get better."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b759225
"Lord Vincent, this is my daughter Beatrix.  She came to tell me Ralf Wylde's wife died this morning", said Rachael.
"Ralf told me she was in bad health", he said, "I didn't realize how bad.".

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b7590d1
"May I go back to Willow Creek with Beatrix?  I'd like to be there for Sarah's family and  my neighbors", she said.
"Yes of course", he said, "Be sure to give Ralf my condolences."
"Why don't you come and deliver them yourself?", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_7b759418-1
Then Lord Vincent, Rachael and Beatrix left to go to the peasant village

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db759770
Over at Willow Creek Ralf was planting some purple flowers on Sarah's grave. Purple had been her favorite color.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db759810
He stood at the grave and mourned for his wife.  Ralf had been a good and faithful husband to Sarah for sixteen years, except for that one time with Anne Fenton.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb759984
Seeing Ralf standing alone by Sarah's grave, Anne came over to chat with him.
"Ralf if you get lonely and want to . . . well you know.  I'm available.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b75993e-1
"Don't you be talking like that right here at Sarah's grave.  Your Jonathan ain't dead.  Try being a good wife to him for a change. You're lucky to have somebody like him who  accepts  Caleb as his own.  I don't know if I could have done it!", shouted Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db7599c8-1
Ralf saw two women and a man approuching.  "I don't believe it", he thought to himself.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b759a81-1
The man with Rachael and Beatrix was none other than Lord Vincent.  He most certainly looked out of place in his silk shirt, velvet suit and fine leather boots.  In all his thirty-four years, Ralf had never known a landlord to come to Willow Creek.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b790051
"Ralf I've come to pay my respects to your Sarah and offer my condolences to you", said Lord Vincent.
"Thank you Lord Vincent", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b759c5e-1
"Ralf I'm sorry Sarah passed away.  I had hoped and prayed that she would get better", said Rachael.
"I guess it just wasn't meant to be", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b759d96-1
Ralf introduced Lord Vincent to his sons Raulin and Gareth.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db759bdf
When Lord Vincent was leaving he gave Ralf a friendly hug.
"I envy you having two fine sons to carry on your name", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b78ffa7
"I'll be home Monday morning the same as usual", said Rachael.
"Good, I don't think I could do without you longer than that", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b759f75
As Vincent was leaving he took a good look around.  He was appalled by the living onditions of the peasants. "I had no idea it was this bad", he thought to himself.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db75b12f
Ralf's oldest son Raulin was out in the yard with the Fenton's daughter Olivia.
"I love you", she said.
"I love you too Olivia", he said, "And I know I ain't got much else to offer you but. . .."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_5b75b1a9-2
"Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?", he asked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb75b1f1
"Oh yes, I was hoping you would ask me", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_db75b237
When Ralf came out into the yard, Raulin told him he wanted to marry Olivia.
"Well you're both old enough to know what you want.  Your mama and me were about your age when we got married", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_bb75b35d-1
"I can't think of a better man for my Olivia than your son", said Jonathan, "I hope they'll be as happy as me and Anne have been."
"I wish my Sarah had lived long enough to see them married", said Ralf.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b75a10c-1
Caleb was outside running around.  He's loved by everybody in the village and doesn't want for attention.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b75ae46
Rachael had gone out to the barn to milk the cow and felt slightly nauseous from the smells.
"Oh no, could I be with child?", she wondered.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Part Chapter 11

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb7ab2f8
On Monday morning Rachael said goodbye to her daughters.  Alyson pleaded with her to stay a little longer, but she had promised Vincent she would return today.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b7ab2d2
Beatrix on the other hand gave her a hug goodbye. She would soon be an adult and understood how important it was for her mother the keep her job.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b7b8c89
Rachael saw Ralf in the yard exercising and waved goodbye to him.  She hoped he would soon be able to put Sarah's death behind him.  Life was too short to spend it mourning for the departed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b7b8e9a
Ralf was an extremely goodlooking man.  There were plenty of single females in the village like Abra Ousby who would jump at the chance to be the next Mrs. Wylde.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_1b7b9499
Abra asked Ralf to give her lessons.  Not that she didn't get enough exercise from just doing chores . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b7b958e
But this gave her an opportunity to have him all to herself.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_fb7ab26a-1
Later that same day Ralf's son Raulin and the Fenton's daughter Olivia grew up into  adults.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_3b7ab217
There was no reason to put off their wedding any longer.  
"I'll go talk to Father Sullivan tomorrow and make arrangements", said Raulin.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_3b7bddcc
After an exhausting walk Rachael finally arrived at Dargan Castle. She was getting too old to be having another baby she guessed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b7bea8e
As soon as Vincent saw her coming he came came out to greet her.
"I've missed you more than you will ever know", he said, "Are you feeling alright?  You look more tired than usual."
"I'm alright, just getting old I guess", she said.
"You're only thirty-three, that's not old", he said, "Come sit down and get off your feet."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db7bde52
"How is Ralf doing?", he asked.
"He still has moments he breaks down and cries, but that's to be expected.  He and Sarah were married to each other almost half their lives", she said.
"Did it take you a long time to get past your husband's death?", he asked.
"Yes and no.  My daughters were still young and I had to be strong for them.  That helped me get over him sooner than I would have thought possible", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb7bdf60-1
"Rachael, I hate thinking of you being unhappy.  Are you happy living here with me?", he asked.
"Yes, I'm happy", she said, "Now I'm going to fix us something to eat. I bet you haven't eaten a thing today, have you?"
"No, I don't like eating alone", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db7be5ad
Rachael got up to go to the kitchen and the ghost of Tess jumped in front of her.
"Oh!", she screamed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_fb7be674-1
The ghost gave Vincent a discussed look and then disappeared.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_5b7beaec
"Vincent who is that . . . well I mean who was that?", she asked.
"Let's eat and I'll tell you all about her while we're having our meal", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db7be749
Rachael prepared the food, served Vincent a portion and joined him at the table.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_db7be851
"Alright, tell me who's ghost was that", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_bb5eef57
"The ghost is my wife Tess.  She died ten years ago.  We had been married less than a year and she was expecting a baby. We were both happy and excited about the prospect of becoming parents."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b815c0a
"But then something went wrong.  Tess started into labor early and she and the baby were taken from me forever."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b815d62
"Vincent I'm sorry.  I had no idea", she said.
"You don't have anything to appologize for Rachael.  It's been ten long years", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b7be94e
All of a sudden Rachael felt her just eaten meal rise into her throat.  She grabbed her belly and moaned.
"What's wrong?", he asked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb815c6c
"Vincent I'm going to have a baby", she said.
"Are you sure?", he asked.
"I've had two babies in the past", she said, "I'm sure."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb815cac
"That's wonderful Rachael!", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Chapter 12

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b853a7c-1
Over at Castle Dargan, Vincent and Rachael are awaiting the birth of their baby.
"Are you sure it's alright with you about the baby?", she asked.
"Yes, I told you I think it's wonderful", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb853a9e
"Our son will have everything I can afford to give him", he said.
"Our son?", she said, "He might be a daughter, since I already have two of them."
"If this one is another daughter, then we'll have to try agin for a son", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b853b09
"Vincent, where are you going?", she asked.
"I'm going to take a bath before I retire for the night", he said, "Don't wait up for me.  Go on to bed."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb853de6-1
Vincent got in the tub and took a warm relaxing bath.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b8773c7
When he finally came to bed, Rachael was already asleep.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b87745b
He lay down beside her and held her in his arms.  He had needs that didn't have anything to do with his being a vampire, but he wasn't about to jeopardize the baby in Rachael's belly by fulfilling them tonight.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b853f98-1
The next morning Ralf arrived to deliver the benevolences to Vincent.  He unloaded the fish, vegetables and milk from the village.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b85401b
Vincent went outside when he saw his friend.
"How are you doing Ralf?", he asked.
"Not too bad.  I still have trouble getting to sleep at night without my Sarah beside me", he said.
"Yes, there's nothing like having a woman in your bed", agreed Vincent.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb853fea-1
"Tell Rachael we want her to come to Raulin and Olivia's wedding this coming Saturday", said Ralf.
"I'll tell her.  I know she'd like to be there, if she can make it", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b8544e0
When Vincent came back inside, Rachael asked "What did Ralf have to say?"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b815bb9
"He said to tell you that Raulin and Olivia want you to come to their wedding next Saturday", said Vincent.
"Oh dear, I can't go looking like this", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b854526
"You look beautiful Rachael", he said, "When are you going to tell your daughters about the baby?"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb8545a1
"I wanted to wait until after it was born.  I can't put it off much longer", she answered.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b8748ce-1
As soon as Rachael went into the other room, she screamed "Vincent, the baby is coming!"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b854702-2
"Rachael, are you alright!", he asked.
"Yes, the pains help the baby to come", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db854bfa-1
"Vincent, we have a son and he has your dark goodlooks."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb857454
Rachael handed the baby to Vincent.
"He's the most beautiful baby I've ever seen.  What do you what to name him?"
"I'd like to name him Gavril.  That was my father's name", he said.
"Then Gavril it is", she agreed.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b857469
"I'll give him a bottle, if you'd like to get some rest", said Vincent.
"Thank you.  I am rather tired", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db854ccf
Vincent fed his son a bottle of milk.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db856e07-2
Then he put Gavril in the crib that had been empty for many many years.
"Sleep well my son", he said.
Then Vincent went to join Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Chapter 13

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b893e33
At Dargan Castle Rachael was getting ready to leave to go to the wedding.
"I fed the baby and put him in his crib.  He should stay asleep until I get back", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b893e05
"Don't worry so much.  I know how to give him a bottle and change his diaper if he wakes up", said Vincent.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b8751aa-1
Then Rachael left to go to the wedding.  All her friends and neighbors would be there.  And her daughters of course.  She hoped they wouldn't be able to tell she had recently had a baby by looking at her.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_1b86695f
By the time Rachael arrived at the church,  Father Sullivan was beginning the ceremony.
"Village!  We are gathered here in the sight of God and His bounty of Angels to join this man and this woman in a binding of life; it is an honorable estate, ordained in Paradise, and into which holy estate these two persons present come now to be bound."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_bb8a5542
The priest's words brought back memories of when she and Edward had gotten married.  It was hard to believe that she had been so young and in love back then.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_bb866b89
As Raulin and Olivia took their vows, Rachael thought about the hopes and plans she had had for her future with Aaron.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_1b8a58f3
She saw Ralf with his plate of food.  The villagers must have all donated their share of food for a week to make the wedding as lavish as possible.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_db8a55a0
Alyson saw her and came over to where Rachael was standing.
She asked "Mother, why didn't you come to visit us last Sunday?"
"I wasn't feeling well and was afraid I might have something you and the others in the village would catch", she explained.
"Will you be coming to visit tomorrow?", asked Alyson.
"Lord Vincent let me miss work today to come to the wedding.  I can't ask him for tomorrow off, too", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_5b8683fa
Ralf came over to thank her for coming.
"I delivered the benevolences to Lord Vincent.  I didn't see you around anywhere", he said.
"Lord Vincent told me you had come.  I was upstairs doing my chores", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_5b8684e5
"Hello Rachael", said Father Sullivan, "How is the position as Lord Vincent's housekeeper working out for you?"
"Just fine your holiness", she said, "There's plenty to do and it pays enough for me to support my girls."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_fb868554
"I was hoping to see the Landlord today at the wedding, but I guess he doen't mingle with the peasants", he said.
"Oh, I'm sure he would have liked to come, but he had more pressing matters that needed  his attention", she said.
She couldn't very well tell the priest that Vincent was a vampire and couldn't step foot inside the church.  And the pressing matter that needed his attention was their infant son.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_3b8a54c0
Rachael was taken aback when she saw Caleb Fenton.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_db8a5422
The boy was the spitting image of Ralf.  Caleb even had those unusual grey eyes like Ralf's.  But who was she to be wondering, if Jonathan accepted him as his own.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_bb8a6952
Raulin and Olivia left to go home.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_5b867207-1
Rachael said her goodbyes and left to go back to Dargan Castle.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b857d18_5b868823
She saw the newlyweds kissing outside.  She hoped their life together would be a happy one.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_db33f639_9b391c0a-1
In the village, Raulin and Olivia were given their own two-room hut.  It wasn't much, but to them it was a castle.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db8b8c3f
After changing into their night clothes, Raulin picked Olivia up in his arms and took her into the bedroom.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_fb8b8cf7
He layed her gently onto the bed and kissed her passionalely.

They cuddled and kissed until Raulin could stand it no longer.

"Can we now Olivia", he asked.
"Yes, we've waited so long", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_1b8b8d96
"It was everything I had imagined it to be", she said.
"Me too", said Raulin.

The next morning Ralf was up early hanging fish.  He liked to get his chores done early so he could have the rest of the afternoon  . . .

"Where you going Garath!", he called.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_3b8ba171
"My back hurts. I'm going back inside", he said.  Garath had never been known to be athletic like his father and Raulin.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_7b8b74de
Ralf went out to the barn and relaxed on the haystack.  The wedding yesterday made him remember when he and Sarah got married.  Those were the happiest times of his life.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db8b759e
"Ralf, would you like some company?", asked Abra Ousby.
"Sure come on over", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_7b8b75dc
"What are you thinking about that's making you so sad looking?", she asked.
"The wedding yesterday made me remember how happy me and Sarah were when we was first married", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_9b8b772f
"I think you should be considering taking you another wife.  Ralf, I could comfort you in your time of need", said Abra.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db8b7675
He held her in his arms and kissed her tenderly.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_9b8b76b2
"Abra, I think I better stop while I can.  I wouldn't want to do anything that we would regret later", he said.
"I wouldn't regret anything I do with you", she said.
"You should go now", said Ralf.
"You know where to find me if you should change your mind", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Chapter 14

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_00000004_fb4bc4c5
At Castle Dargan, Rachael and Vincent's son Gavril has had his first birthday.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b8973b9
He's an adorable little boy who looks a lot like his father.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb89731d
Rachael finished his bath before she cleaned up the kitchen from supper.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db894595
Then Vincent played with him.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb8945f6
Started teaching him to walk.

He changed his diaper and . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db8ce32e-1
Put him in his crib for the night.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb8cee81
Then Vincent lay on his bed and waited for Rachael to join him.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b8cefc2
"I could have put Gavril to bed when I finished in the kitchen", said Rachael.
"I didn't mind doing it", said Vincent, "I really rather enjoy it."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b8cef94
He held her in his arms and gave her a lingering kiss and she kissed him back

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db8cefe2
"Is it alright?", he asked.
"Yes", she answered.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b8cf069
"I love you Vincent", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b8cf030
"Yes, I know Rachael", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b875c3e
Then he turned over and went to sleep and Rachael slid over behind him as close as she could.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b898253
The next day Vincent continued teaching Gavril to walk.
"Come on, come to me", he encouraged, "You can do it!"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb898240
Gavril finally learned to walk.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b897db3
Vincent was as happy as he had ever been in his life. He loved being a father to Gavril.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b897237
Rachael picked up Gavril when Vincent brought him inside.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb89734f
She gave him a much needed bath.
"You're a smart little boy.  Your sisters didn't walk until they were nearly two years old", she told him.
"Sisters?", he asked.
"Yes, you have two of them.  Their names are Beatrix and Alyson", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb89731d
"I'll take you to see them Sunday", she told him.
" Me go Sunday", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db8cec06-1
Gavril discovered the big wooden box filled with toys.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db8cec41-1
He got a wooden painted hourse out of the box.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb8d5957
When he saw Vincent, Gavril asked him to read him a story.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b8d594c

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b8d59d8
The whole time Vincent was reading to him, Gavril stood up to listen.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb8d5a61
The little boy started crying and asking to go to bed, so Vincent put him in his crib.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b8d5475
The next Sunday morning Gavril was up bright and early.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b8d546c
He asked Vincent to read him a story.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b8d53ad
Gavril enjoys being read to as much as Vincent enjoys reading to him.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db8ce765
When he finished reading to his son, Vincent went to practice chess.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb8d07aa
A few minutes later, Rachael called to Vincent, "We're leaving now!  I'll be back tomorrow morning as usual."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b8d09a3
Vincent ran out onto the porch.
"Where do you think you're taking my son!", he asked.
"I'm taking him to the village to meet his sisters", she explained.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b8d0a56
"He's not going to that nasty place!", Vincent yelled.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b8d0a09
"It's alright for the peasants to live there, but it's not good enough for your son to visit overnight?", asked Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb8d0901
"They're use to it!  Do you want Gavril to catch a diease while he's there?", asked Vincent.
"Of course not", she said.
"Well then go on along without him", said Vincent, "You can ask the girls to come here to visit him."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b8d0804
Then Rachael left to go to the village alone.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_9b80b784-1-1
When Rachael arrived at the village . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_7b8d2452
She waved hello to Ralf who was getting out of the creek.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db8b950c
"Hello Rachael", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_3b8d27fe
"How are you doing Ralf?", she asked.
"Not too bad.  I believe it gets a little easier every day", he said.
"I'll talk to you later.  I have something that's waited long enough to tell my girls", said Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_db8d2dcb
Rachael went inside the hut where her daughters lived with the Edgar family.
"Girls I have something very important to tell you", she said.  
"What is it Mother?", asked Alyson.
"I have a son, well you two have a little brother", she said.
"How old is he?  Where does he live?", they asked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_bb8d2e26
"He lives at Castle Dargan. Gavril just had his first birthday a few days ago. Lord Vincent is his father", said Rachael.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_1b8d2e62
"Did Lord Vincent force you to do . . . that?", asked Alyson.
"No!  He wouldn't do that", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_5b8d2eeb
"Mother, you mean you gave your consent!  How could you do such a thing?", asked Beatrix.
"It just happened.  It's too late to worry about it now", said Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_db8d3009
To keep her hands busy and not wanting to answer anymore questions right then, Rachael fixed something for them to eat.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_db8d31d1
"Lord Vincent told me to ask you to come to Castle Dargan to visit your little brother", she told them.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_5b8d318c
"Would you like to go back with me tomorrow?", she asked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Chapter 15

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_9b811387_5b8d318c
"I have to help Mrs. Edgar change the bedcovers and wash them tomorrow", said Beatrix.
"I promised to go swimming with Garath tomorrow after I finish my chores", said Alyson.
"Well next Sunday, you can come to Castle Dargan to visit instead of me coming here", said Rachael, "Will that be alright with you both?"
"Yes!", they both agreed.

Meanwhile over at Castle Dargan . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db97d435
Vincent is discovering how it feels to have sole responsiblity for the care and entertainment of an active toddler.  He played castle with Gavril until the little boy got bored with it.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b97cac2-1
Then Vincent talked to Gavril.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b97cb38-1
He read a story to him when he asked.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db97cb99

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b97cb42-1

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b97cb69-1
Gavril finally started to get tired.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b99e2cf
Being a true blood vampire gave Vincent the gift of unusual physical strength, but even that didn't help when dealing with a spoiled toddler.  He was glad to be able to tuck the little boy in for the night.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb99e438
He wasn't tired physically, just emotionally drained.  Vincent relaxed on his bed and thought about Rachael.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb97cdc5
The ghost of Tess came into the room and lay beside him.
"What are you going to do if Rachael doesn't return?", she asked.
"She'll be back tomorrow", he said.
"Dealing with two spoiled little boys might be more than she can handle", said Tess.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b97cf3f-1
"Now that wouldn't be any problem for me", she said coming closer.
"Leave me alone!", he shouted.


The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db97cf6f
"Please Vincent, give me a chance to be a wife and mother.  You know how much I was looking forward to it", said Tess.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db97cef0
"You've been dead for ten years.  All we had together is gone!  I don't love you anymore!", he shouted.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b97d45d-1

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb99f08a

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b99ef0e

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b99ef16
The ghost of Vincent's wife left his bedroom, went back up to the family crypt and disappeared into her urn.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb875b74-1
All was quiet, at least for now.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db9a07c8
The next morning at the peasant village, Rachael hugs Alyson goodbye.
"I'll see you next Sunday", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db9a0abb
Then Alyson was off to talk to Ralf's son Garath.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db9a0fb7
Rachael waved goodbye to Beatrix who was busy washing clothes.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_3b9a08ec
"My girls are coming to visit me at Dargan Castle next Sunday instead of me coming here", she told Isabel Edgar.
"Oh may, you mean to say that the Lord and master is actually allowing them into his castle?", said Isabel.
"Yes, Lord Vincent told me to invite them", said Rachael.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_bb9a02a6
Rachael waved goodbye to Ralf.  He seemed to be doing alright now.  He definitely wasn't wanting for female companionship.  Abra Ousby and Bridget Edgar were both vying for his attention.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_3b9a01ee
From the looks of things she would guess that Abra had won this round.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_1b9a1f0d
If she wasn't in love with Vincent, she might also be thinking about Ralf as more than just a friend.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db9a0afb
She walked a little faster just thinking about Vincent and their son waiting at home for her.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Chapter 16.1

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_fb4c39f7_1b717278
After a long walk Rachael could see Castle Dargan in the distance.  Never in a million years would she have ever thought she would be living there.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb97d8dd
"Vincent, I'm home!", she called.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b97dae9
"I missed you Rachael", said Vincent.
"I missed you, too", she said, "Where is Gavril?"
"He's still asleep.  I think he likes keeping late hours", laughed Vincent.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b98c8ae
Gavril woke up and started screaming for attention.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b97db46-1
Rachael went upstairs to take him out of his crib.
"Good morning my beautiful boy", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_9b97d377-1
The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b9ca45a-1
When she put him down on the floor, he ran over to his toys and started playing.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb9a74c8-3
While Gavril was amused with his toys Rachael took a bath, changed clothes and fixed her hair.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_3b98cb87
Then she put Gavril in his highchair with a bowl of mush . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b9ca7de
While she fixed something for herself and Vincent to eat.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9ca927
"Did you tell your daughters that they have a little brother?", asked Vincent.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9ca8fd
"Yes, they're coming Sunday morning to visit", she said, "They took the news better than I had imagined."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9ce6ce
That afternoon Vincent caught up on some paperwork at his desk.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b9ce8cf
While Gavril played with his toys . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9cac38
Rachael started painting a portrait of him.  She wanted to be able to remember how he looked as a toddler.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db9cb013-1
The painting was progressing very quickly.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb9caccb-1
She stopped to give Gavril a bottle of milk and put him in his crib for a nap.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db9cae8b
When she went back downstairs Vincent met her in the hall.
"The portrait of Gavril is a wonderful likeness", he said, "You're a very talented artist  Rachael."
"Thank you Vincent.  I'd like to paint one of you, if you don't mind posing?", she said.
"I don't mind, if that's what you want to do", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db9cae39
Then Vincent posed for Rachael to paint his portrait.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb9cab2b-2
Vincent soon tired of posing, went over to the piano and started playing.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b9cae0f-1
Rachael continued to paint.  She wanted to get as much of the portrait done as possible before Gavril woke up.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_9b80b784
Meanwhile at Willow Creek, chores have been done and it's time to enjoy life's little pleasures . . .

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_bb98bbfa
Ralf was taking advantage of one of the last warm days before the winter cold came.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_fb9a563c
Since Ralf enjoyed swimming in the creek so much, Abra decided to make it one of her favorite activities.    

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db9a5782-1
Ralf got out of the creek and lounged on the bench under one of the weeping willow trees.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_5b9df3c8
Abra came over and sit down beside him.
"I hope you don't mind if I join you", she said.
"No I don't mind", he said.
"It's nice and warm today but I'm afraid we won't have many more days left that we can swim in the creek", she said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_fb9df428
Abra was both surprised and pleased when Ralf motioned for her to "Come over here".

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_7b9df75b
"You look different today", he said, giving her a questioning look.
"I took the twine out of my hair so it would dry quicker", she said.
"I like it loose like that", he said, "But there's something else that's different."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_7b9df472
"Do you think it might be that I've grown up since the last time you saw me", she laughed, nuzzeling his neck.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_bb9df4ef
"You know, I believe that's it", he said, "You're even prettier now."
"Thank you for saying that, but I don't consider myself pretty", she said.
"Why is that?", asked Ralf.
"My skin is too dark and my hair is too curly", said Abra.
"You know something, my Sarah use to complain because she was so pale and her hair was so straight", he laughed, "Women are never staisfied with the way they was born."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_1b9df724
Ralf gave her a long and lingering kiss.  She was the only woman except for Sarah that he had kissed with such feelings.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_db9df673
Abra returned his kiss with new found feelings of her own.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_bb9df569
"I think I better be going on home", she said.
"Goodnight Abra", he said.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_1b801348_9b9df7d4
Confused by the feelings she had for Ralf, Abra left to go home to give them more thought.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b9cf47a
The next Sunday morning Rachael looked out the kitchen window and shouted "Vincent, they're here!"

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9cf543
Alyson and Beatrix had arrived to visit Castle Dargan.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_db9cf611
"I'm so glad to see you both", said Rachael, "I thought today would never come."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b9cf605
She gave Alyson a hug.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb9cf5d6
"You've grown up so beautiful", she said, giving a grownup Beatrix a hug.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_7b9cf754
When Vincent came outside, Rachael introduced him as Lord Vincent, not sure what she should call him in front of her daughters. The words sounded strange on her lips now.  

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_5b9cf786
"Pleased to meet you your Lordship", said Alyson.
"I'm glad to meet you", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb9cf85a
"We met before, but you might not remember me", said Beatrix.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9cf8b1
"Yes I remember.  You came to bring the news of Sarah Wylde's death", said Vincent, "You do look somewhat different than you did."

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb9cf79d
"You must be my little brother Gavril", said Beatrix, "I'm your big sister."
"Sister", said Gavril.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9cfc35
Beatrix was watching Gavril.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_bb9cfb46
"My little brother is just as beautiful as you", she told Vincent.
"Well, I am his father.  That sometimes happens with sons", he said.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_1b9ce7b1
About that time, Gavril started laughing excitedly.

The Life and Times Of Ralf Wylde! Snapshot_3b7e8c9a_fb9cfcce
Then he grew up into a child.

He ran to Vincent and was given a birthday hug.

He grabbed a slice of cake that Rachael had baked as a surprise.
