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.

First Sight: The Wedding

It was a day like no other as the sun rose over the vibrant town of Starlight Shore. Peyton Oliander was on her third appointment of the day, she'd spoke with several prospective record labels about her up coming album. Llama Records signed her almost immediately upon hearing a few sample tracks. Needless to say she was more than thrilled about the news. And stopping by the convenient store to grab a few things, only to find a winning lottery ticket was also something that made today special. But of all the things that could possibly make her day more, getting married was on the top of that short list.

Having picked out their favorite spot in all of Starlight, Vassar and Peyton were more than relieved to find a vacancy during the weekend. With his large family and her growing list of friends there would be more than enough space to accommodate everyone. It was truly perfect. 
"The air here is nice.
"Do you think everyone will like it?
"Pey, they'd be fools not to.It's a dream come true."

Despite Peyton's concerns everyone loved the venue she and Vassar chose, it rekindled old flames and sparked ones anew. The couple allowed one photographer to attend the ceremony, this way her fans were kept up to date without overloading the ceremony with an influx of people. When the couple saw Vassar's parents so loving towards one another they couldn't help but wonder, would they too be that way in their old age? And so it was with his parent;'s blessing that Peyton and Vassar wed.

But nothing is ever truly perfect is it? Weddings are symbolic, they carry meaning and the thought of a fresh start and a new life. However not everyone shared in this sentiment, not all who walk among us are truly happy with themselves or their situation. And thus this day was turned sour by one man with a lust in his eyes. One man who wanted Peyton for his own.
