Our bond will never break, even in a thousand years.

Holding Marie’s lock of hair Melanie looked into Marie’s eyes.


“Quand tu entends toute l'histoire de ma vie; une vie je n'avais pas d'autre choix que de vivre comme il était écrit ma sœur, tu comprendras.” whispered Marie.

{“When you hear the full story of my life; a life I had no choice but to live as it was written my sister, you will understand.”} whispered Marie.

“Dès le début, il a été ordonné que je meurs comme moi.

Je suis mort tous les jours en t'attendant. Nous sommes ensemble Mélanie; toujours ensemble avec un lien que le temps ne peut jamais briser.”

{“From the very start it was ordained that I should die as I did.

I have died everyday waiting for you. We are together Melanie; together always with a bond that time can never break.”}

Marie reached out and kissed Melanie gently on the cheek as she had done on her wedding day in 1789.

“Je suis mort tous les jours en t'attendant, Mélanie ne crains pas de t'aimer depuis mille ans, je t'aimerai pendant mille ans Je savais que je te retrouverais encore. Dors ma sœur jusqu'à demain.”

{“I have died everyday waiting for you, Melanie don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I’ll love you for a thousand more. I knew I would find you again. Sleep my sister until tomorrow.”}

“Our bond will never be broken.” Marie smiled
