Fate of The Unborn ~ Part 1
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, fangirls and all, it is my great pleasure to present to you….
…..a sequel to the beloved photostory series…..
…..an all new epic series….
….following the story of Liesel and Edmund (#liesmund)….
OH ALRIGHT! XD
Fellow friends, I give you:
As the moon rises against the sun,
So does man rise against man.
In 20 year’s time,
When the young bird flees from its nest,
It will fly into a storm and be struck down.
After it has lingered in the shadows a while to sprout its wings,
It will return a strong griffin ready to attack it’s prey.
And the griffin now full of hatred and strength,
Will devour the prey of its wellspring.
For as the moon rises against the sun,
So does man rise against man.
Eight years in prison. Eight years trapped behind bars. Eight years feeding on darkness.
Seven months fearing what would come to be. When Liesel became pregnant for the second time, it didn’t take long for the prophecy to reach Frederic’s ears, even in a place so isolated as a dungeon. But he had made an ally among the prince’s men. One who was very obliging to aid Frederic in any way he could and today was the day that he would prove his loyalty. Today was the day Frederic would put his plan into action…
Looking out the window toward our palace garden, I took in a deep breath and let the air from outside fill my lungs. My life had turned out quite differently than I had expected it to. Ten years ago I never imagined that I would be a princess, married to the love of my life, and blessed with a beautiful little girl.
It was truly a miracle that my life had turned out so amazing and soon another little blessing would be added to it.
“Mommy, have you seen Daddy? I can’t find him anywhere!” My sweet daughter asked as she bounded up to me.
“I haven’t seen him all morning. Let’s see if we can find him together.”
Elsie and I stumbled upon Edmund walking toward us, his eyes fixed on the ground as though something was weighing heavy on his mind.
“Edmund, are you alright?” I asked when he didn’t even stop to look up at us.
“Oh, I’m sorry, I was lost in thought,” he said with a smile, but I knew something was bothering him.
“Daddy, can you walk with me in the garden?” Elsie asked, eyes full of hope.
“I’m sorry, not right now, sweetie,” Edmund said. It wasn’t like him to turn down time spent with his daughter. Something was definitely wrong.
Edmund must have sensed that I knew he was hiding something because he asked Elsie to leave us alone for a moment. “It won’t be for long,” he assured her.
“Go on, Elsie. I’ll walk with you later,” I said.
“Okay, Mommy,” she said right before skipping away.
“Edmund what is it?” I asked as I reached for his hand. Edmund closed his eyes and touched my belly. “It’s a dream I had last night…,” he began.
“I’m afraid to tell you about it,” he said, not even daring to look into my eyes.
“Edmund, I’ve never seen you like this. What is it?” I pressed. He was unsettling me more and more with each word he spoke.
“I dreamed something happened to our child… Someone was after it… and-” Edmund paused. “I can’t bring myself to tell you the rest. It was too real and I don’t want to frighten you unnecessarily if it turns out to be nothing more than a silly nightmare.”
“Edmund, tell me wha-” I stopped my sentence when I heard a familiar sound in the distance…
The alarm bells were ringing for all the kingdom to hear. They meant something bad or even dangerous had occurred. But what frightened me most was when Edmund spoke…
“My dream….it’s happening.”
DUN DUN DUN DUUUUNNNNN!!!! :O :O
What is happening?! :O Yes, I know that I know, but it’s still fun to say. *innocent grin* XD
I don’t know when the next part will be up cause I have VBS all week, but I will get it up just as soon as I can! 😀
I hope you enjoyed the beginning of Fate of The Unborn! 😀
Happy New Year everyone!!
*wonders why no one replied* *realizes why their mouths are hanging open*
Oh! Right! SURPRISE!!! The Masquerade finale is HERE!! 😀
I had really wanted to post this on Christmas as a present to all of you, but the weather wasn’t good for taking pictures on the only days I had available… So I decided to make it for New Years! 😀 I spent over 5 hours just prepping the dolls, setting up, and taking pictures. O_O
Okay, okay, I know you’re all excited, but let me just say thank you all so much for your patience and for loving this series so much!! I can’t tell you how much that means to me <3
Now, without further ramblings, let the show commence! (but just in case you need a refresher, here’s the last part 😉 )
Soon after Jeremiah’s death, Edmund found Frederic and placed him deep in the dungeon where he would spend the remainder of his days. Having Frederic so nearby did make me a little uneasy, but I could hardly worry about such things for I was busy making preparations for the biggest day of my life – marrying the man I truly love.
The music began to play, cuing my entrance. Right when I saw Edmund, I felt tears pricking at the corners of my eyes. Not tears of sadness, but of joy. He looked so incredibly handsome in his suit and smiling broadly at me as he, too, was seeing me for the first time.
Looking into his eyes, I just knew that we were thinking the same thing…
We had come so far and now here we were – about to pledge our hearts to each other for eternity.
My mother watched with a tender heart and tears trickled down her cheeks. I knew this must be an especially meaningful time for her – to at last see her daughter marrying the man she loves.
When I reached Edmund, we both paused, taking in the special moment, each smiling so big our cheeks hurt.
And we faced the pastor, ready to say our vows and be joined as one.
I didn’t once take my eyes off of Edmund – not even to look at the ring. I would have been perfectly satisfied without a ring because I was receiving the most precious gem of all – the heart of the one I love.
“I present to you, your Prince and Princess.”
Edmund and I danced to a song that we both had loved when we were younger and for those few minutes, I felt as though I had traveled back in time, dancing with my beau to an enchanting song as he promised me that one day, he would marry me…
And we would be happier than we could ever comprehend…
Even if we had to live in a stable.
The ceremony went by so quickly and before I knew it, it was time to cut the cake.
“And we walked away together as husband and wife. From that moment on, we would never be separated.”
“And that’s the end of our story…”
“Not quite, Mama, because then you had me!” My daughter said with a gleeful expression.
“That’s right, sweetie. And soon you’ll have a baby brother,” I said with a smile.
“Oh, I can’t wait for him to come out!” Elsie cried as she held onto my belly.
“Or her; it could be a girl, you know,” Edmund said with twinkling eyes. “I’ve been wondering where you were all afternoon. It’s getting late.”
“I was just telling her our story,” I said and motioned for her to run along.
Edmund came up to me and smiled. “We have created a perfect life together, haven’t we?” He asked.
“Yes, we have,” I agreed.
“And soon it will get even better,” Edmund said, placing his hands on my belly. I looked into his eyes as he felt our unborn child moving inside me and my heart was warmed by the pure joy and love behind his eyes.
“I love you, Edmund,” I said. He looked into my eyes tenderly and replied, “I love you, Liesel.”
As we headed back inside, I watched our beautiful little girl skipping through the garden, I felt my baby moving within me, and I felt the love my husband had for me in the gentle touch of his hand. Though my life started out with a rocky beginning, things turned out alright. And I knew without a doubt that we would all live happily ever after – till the end of our days…
P.S. This part made my mom cry! XD
WellieWishers Willa Doll Review
I guess the title gives it away, but YES! I got Willa!!! I’ve had her for a few weeks now and just yesterday got around to taking pictures of her (sorry for my absence by the way. I’ve been having trouble with finding time to take pictures…)
Isn’t she too cute! *heart eyes*
Here is a closeup of Willa’s face. She has ADORABLE freckles sprinkled across her nose and stunning hazel eyes! She has orange feathered eyebrows and a sweet little smile with 2 teeth showing.
Willa comes wearing this red and pink hedgehog shirt that velcros in the back. The face is printed on and two little ears stick up at the corners.
I absolutely love her skirt!! THE HEDGEHOGS ARE SO CHUBBY!! There’s a little knot at the side of her skirt and it is trimmed in red.
Her little bunny ears headband is the same print as the skirt with pink trim to match the shirt. The headband is fabric until it reaches the underneath part where it’s just elastic (and has a humongous tag). It’s easy to slip on and off the doll’s head.
Her Wellies are adorable little ladybugs. They’re a little difficult to get on and off.
Of course I had to show a closeup of its cute little face 🙂
Willa’s hair is strawberry blonde and is the exact same color as Maryellen’s hair.
She has several highlights in her hair.
Okay, so I know this is awkward, but I felt it needed to be shown. When you take off her underwear there’s a little Wellie Wishers logo engraved on her. Also, Willa is all vinyl and has a cute little belly button 😉 There is also “American Girl made in China” and some numbers engraved on the back.
The Wellie Wishers are $60 and I think perhaps slightly overpriced. Normally I say AG’s things are worth the money and while I absolutely ADORE Willa, I don’t think she should be a $60 doll 😉 I think $45 might be a better price for them.
AG says they are for ages 5+ and I feel like that’s accurate 🙂
You knew it was coming, didn’t you? XD Time for a PHOTOSHOOT! 😀
I forgot to mention that her head is always in a tilted up position. I think it’s adorable and will probably work well for when she looks up to the AG dolls 😉
I went into the sunlight and used the gold side of my reflector for a different lighting. What do you think?
I don’t know why, but the reflector didn’t shine a golden light in this photo… My mom really liked this pic, so I decided to post it anyway 🙂
Well, there you are! Willa is simply adorable and quite photogenic! I’d like to take her to a park sometime and get more pictures of her 🙂 And yes, the Wellie Wishers are perfect little sisters for AG dolls 😉
What do you think of the Wellie Wishers? Are any of them on your WISHlist? (Haha, get it? XD)
Have a great day everyone! And I hope to start posting more soon! 🙂
