A/N: Tonight's episode makes me want to slap Vincent but I'd lying if I say I didn't see that one coming.
Another gibberish in Cattherine's POV.
Growing up you dream of happily ever after, that one day prince charming will sweep you off your feet. You'll ride on his white horse and head to the sunset. Forever, you two will be happy.
No one ever tells you about the heart break you will suffer along the way and that before prince charming there are a few dark knights. Happily ever only exists if you believe in it and as far as I know it's up there on the list with unicorns.
I love him.
In some ways I've always known while some parts of me still denied it. The fear of being that close to someone while knowing that at any given moment he could be taken away was heart wrenching. What I didn't know was how much it would hurt to finally admit it and not have him reciprocate the feeling, or at least have him dream up of another life with someone else, let alone that was long gone and a complete lie.
Every part of me wanted to scream and shout, be angry and cry but I understood where he was coming from. We all want that old life when everything was good and okay. Everyday I still dream off my mom being alive and I have the one person that knew me best. I'd go to her with all my problems and we'll talk about it over ice cream and cake. She'll listen when a guy breaks my heart and will tell me to give it time. I'll cry on her shoulder and wish for times when pain meant a boo boo on your knee.
I've turned him down more than once and used complications as an excuse but the truth of it all was I'm the one who is complicated. I didn't know how to let someone in without pushing them away. I don't know what hurts the most, losing him or knowing that it was my own fault.
All the pain in the world does not matter if you have someone to share that burden with. Who chooses to be with you despite of your faults and flaws. Who will help you climb out of that dark hole and guide you back to the light. He is that person and despite of the obstacles that he and I will have to go through I know that he is the one that I want to be with.
Fairy tales tells you to always believe that some day, when all is said and done, that in the end you will find happiness. It may not be now or anytime in the near future but I refuse to give up on him and on us. I'll fight for him even if it means letting go for awhile because I've learned that loving someone meant putting their happiness before yours and unconditionally means through good and bad. What I know now is that he isn't the prince charming in fairy tales but he is the one that I'd like to see the sunset with because in the end all that matters is that I love him.
Just wanted to put a positive twist to tonighit's episode.
