When James aged up into a young adult he asked his mom if he could renovate his room a little and make it big enough for a double bed. Of course she obliged and this is what the house looks like now.
The days had slipped by with no one really talking to each other after Camilos death. James was the first one to get over it so he tried really hard to cheer his mother up but it just wasn't working. Violet had lost her best friend, her husband, and her soulmate. Nothing could make her feel any better right now, I guess you could say time heals all wounds.
Violet wasn't the only one taking it harshly, Sunny would pick at her food and just leave it there even if she wasn't full. She moped around the house and at night you could hear her crying in her room. She was a daddys girl through and through and it had hurt her more than anything.
James decided to sit his mom and sister down to try and let them talk out their feelings, but things didn't go exactly the way he had planned,
James: So guys I want you to talk about how you feel so we can all feel happy again! There has just been a really dark cloud that has been hanging over this house.
Sunny: No plum James. Our dad is DEAD how are you even okay right now?
James: Well because dad wouldn't want us moping around. Sunny!
Violet: Kids please...I can't handle you two arguing right now..
James: But mom listen, you really need to get better or your going to put yourself in an early grave!
That comment struck a nerve with Violet that she hadn't been expecting and her face got red hot with anger,
Violet: Now you listen to me James Belle, I want you to leave this house and go take a walk and calm down. You're to heated right now to talk correctly.
James stomped out of the house and slammed the door behind him, he needed time to cool off so he headed over to Lucys house.
When James got into the house he gathered Lucy into his arms and hugged her tightly to him. Without saying a word he let her go and looked her directly in the eyes.
James: I'm going to do something now that I've been promising you for a while. I need some happiness in my life right now, so I'm looking to you for that.
Lucy: Omygod James what are you doing?
James: Like I've said many times before, I have loved you since I was a child and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I want to have a bunch of little babies with you and be able to wake up in the morning and see your beautiful face right beside mine. So, will you do me the honor of marrying me?
Lucy: Of course! You handsome, charming man!
James: I don't think my mom is going to live much longer so I think we should get married as soon as possible so she can be there.
- Back at the Belle House -
Violet was still upset so she wanted to call her friend Liberty, but things were just not going well for Violet recently. When she tried calling her she got a disconnected message so she called Travis, Liberty's husband, and found out that Liberty had passed away a couple days ago.
Holding back her tears Violet raced to the bathroom to try and calm herself down. She didn't want Sunny to be upset that she was crying again. But she couldn't hold it back the floodgates opened again and she couldn't control it this time.
After all the drama was over and a few days had passed, Lucy moved in. The first thing she did was tell Violet that her and James were having a wedding, today.
Lucy: Soooo yea! Me and James are getting married today!
Violet: Wait like, right now today?
Violet: Oh my goodness! I have to go bake a cake, there is a new wedding venue that just opened up and we have enough money for a big wedding!
Lucy: Awesome! I'll go make the preperations!
The gangs all here! Non other than Bob Pancakes is the caterer and the only people that were invited was everyone they knew, which wasn't that many.
After the wedding ceremony was over it was time to cut the cake! Violet used her best gourmet skills to whip up a white tiered wedding cake. Everybody loved it, especially Lucy.
Lucy: WOOOO YEA, CAKE.
James: Okay babe I think your a little juiced calm down.
After the cake had been served and everyone was busy dancing, the entire family sat down together to talk. The first one to speak was Violet,
Violet: I'm so glad you can be apart of our family Lucy, I just knew you and James had something special ever since you were kids!
Lucy: Thanks Mrs.Violet I really hope we do well.
Violet: Oh hunny please, you're part of the family call me mom!
Violet: Sweetheart I know you're thinking of your mom and I have been too. We both miss her very much but I feel it's time we all move on with our lives. For good.
Sunny: Well said momma!
James: We all love you mom.
Violet: And I love all of you too.
Violet went down to where the arch was and tears started to well up in her eyes, happy tears though. She got her wish, she always wanted for her children to have a big wedding and she was actually able to attend one. She couldn't be more happy, the only thing she was missing was Camilo.
Violet: Cam baby, if you can hear me, I know you would have loved to be at this wedding. Everyone is so happy and smiling but we're all thinking of you baby. I'll see you soon.
When they all got home Lucy and James went into their new room they shared and had a blissful honeymoon night.
For Violet and Sunny it was not so blissful.
Sunny: Hey mom I was wondering if I could- MOM? OMYGOD NO NOT YOU TOO.
Before Violet could get her words out she lost the breath in her lungs.
Sunny: No momma, no! I won't let this happen!
In her fear of losing her last parent Sunny plead with the Reaper to spare her mother just for now.
Sunny: Please you don't understand! She's the last person I have! Please don't take her away from me!
The Reaper chuckled to himself maliciously,
Reaper: I will spare your mother for now, my pretty. But I will come back for your soul and I will keep it with me for all eternity, my sweet.
Sunny: Anything! Just bring her back!
Still slightly numb from her near death experience Violet had to go sit down on the sofa. Sunny rushed in right behind her and helped her stand up. She gave her the biggest hug possible.
Sunny: Momma I'm so glad that you are still alive! I did it, I brought you back!
Violet: Sweetheart...I appreciate it but I'll only live a few more days. I'll be gone, but I will be happy. I will be with your father, you have to remember that.
Sunny: I know momma...but I just wanted you around a little bit longer.
Violet: I know babygirl...I know...
With everyone in bed and asleep, with the nights fiasco over, an unexpected visitor had been looming around the halls of the Belle house.
Camilo: I'll still wait for you V, I'll always be waiting. I won't move on without you...
Thank you for reading this chapter and I hope you enjoyed it! I can't tell you how happy I was to keep Violet around a little bit longer!
