Chapter 36 – Epilogue
Emerging out of the woods, I smiled at the squealing laughter. When I made it to Giselle’s yard, I shook my head. I wasn’t sure who was happier about that living situation: Carlisle, Esme, or me. Having the three gypsy women move back with us a little over seven years prior had been fantastic. They knew what we were – had predicted it, actually – and they needed our help. Carlisle and I had thought about renovating the small cottage at the far northern point of my property for them, but Giselle and Sue insisted they were happy and comfortable where they were. However, we checked on them just about daily.
Everyone was outside, tending Giselle’s small garden. She preferred to grow most of her own vegetables and herbs. Her daughter, Sue, liked growing flowers. But it was the youngest member of the Black family who brought the most joy to all of us.
“Edward!” she squealed, jumping up from the outdoor table where it looked like Esme had been doing school work with her.
