First Sight: The Untimely End

Some people will never truly understand what it means to be happy. So they seek to destroy the happiness of others in any way they can. The Serpent, as he is known in the criminal world, had long since been obsessed with Peyton ever since her career skyrocketed her to fame. One might say he is her number one fan.

When Serpent found out that Peyton was to bed wed, he knew he would have to take matters into his own hands. Sneaking into the ceremony disguised as a bartender would be the easy part but with so many watching and prying eyes it would prove far more difficult to carry out the deed.

With that in mind he put on a show for the bride and groom, and proposed a toast to their undying love. "Till death do you part." He smirked as he held up one glass to Vassar and one for Peyton. Had anyone bothered to look close enough they would notice that the groom's beverage looked very different than his bride's. But with everyone so happy and caught up in the moment it went unnoticed and the couple toasted with their friends and family shortly before cutting the cake.

Things seemed fine for a little while afterwards, the cake was cut and Peyton took the first piece to share with Vassar. With the cake cut the father of the groom cued the music for a first dance. The newlywed walked towards one another and Vassar reached out his hand to take Peyton's into his...but then it him. 

Vassar felt a sharp pain in his chest and by the time he realized what was going on it was far too late. His golden eyes searched Peyton's and he fell to his knees. "VASSAR!"  Peyton rushed towards him as quickly as she could but that glow in his eyes had all but faded.

"No don't speak your brother is calling the for an ambulance."
"I'm dying Pey."
"No don't you dare talk like that!"
"I can feel it...listen. I love you, and today you made me the happiest man."
"But you can't leave...there is something I need to tell you."
Vassar's lips open to ask her what she meant by that but that was when he breathed his last and final breathe. Peyton was beside herself because not only had she lost the love of her life, earlier that day she found out that she was pregnant.
