rosalie fleur castellane
[TW/M: Child Molestation, Rape, Severe Depression, Suicidal Thoughts]

------------------------------------- she is indeed most wondrous fair ---

Leah and Stefan Castellane had been on the brink of surrender when they received the joyous news not a moment too soon: Leah was with child! They referred to her (Stefan was sure it was a girl) as their "miracle child", since Stefan had been diagnosed as infertile a year ago when all attempts ended in failure. Doctors had no explanations for her conception other than fate itself; a true miracle. They couldn't have been happier! The only argument the new parents had in the time of their preparations was whether the nursery should be decorated in blue or pink, which they eventually settled for a healthy mixture of both. They had made all the proper arrangements and bought all the best that money could by. After all, with Stefan as acting CEO of Swan Enterprises--an international banking company--and Leah as a renowned lawyer of Paris, the Castellane family have necer been lacking in funds. Their child would want for naught and would receive nothing but the best, they would be sure of it!

Her birth was reveled as a celebration, all family and friends invited to rejoice as the miracle baby was brought into this world. She was named Rosalie after the pale rose-shaped birthmark that colored her skin just below the back of her left ear. It was unmistakable and surprising, yet oddly suiting. "She is as delicate as a rose and just as beautiful," Leah sighed with the fondness of a new mother, caressing the plump cheek of her wailing baby. And so she was named, while taking the middle name of her mother and the last name of her father.

Leah and Stefan doted on their newborn since day one, treasuring every moment onwards as its own gem. From her first smile to her first laugh, her first word, her first steps all the way to her first day of school, her first dress fitting, and so forth. In their eyes, she could do no wrong. She was their picture of perfection and they held her to the highest of standards while even desiring for others to see her as such!

Unfortunately, they got their wish...

---------------------------------------------- gold of sunshine in her hair ---

He watched her grow from infancy to that of a blossoming teenager. He watched as her hair lengthened, her body matured and her curves became enticing. He watched as she developed into a kindhearted girl who glowed with purity. He played the role of support well, never hinting at the desire that lurked beneath only when the two of them were alone. The Castellane parents often requested his assistance in caring for the young Rosalie whenever they required it, what with their busy schedules. The parents preferred their childcare to be by someone they trusted and respected; little did they know that the predator was exactly that. He took any opportunity he could get to play his "secret games" with young Rose, whom was innocent to the atrocious reality he subjected her to with promises that she should never share what they did beyond closed doors with anybody. "They wouldn't understand," he said to her. "The games are just our own and if somebody finds out, I'll be upset." To her, it was confusing yet she trusted him as an "uncle" and didn't wish to upset him, even if he did touch areas of her body that didn't make her feel good like he said it would.

Their "games" never exceeded too far, as he had to restrain himself for fear of discovery. Instead, for sixteen years, he waited and waited and waited, quenching his bridled lust for her wherever he could in the form of booze and similar looking women. None of them could quite compare to Rosalie, however, and his frustration only heightened. He had wanted to wait til she was of consensual age before he allowed himself the pleasures of acquiescence to his dark desires. All of that changed in the span of one night. He had been picking her up from the local theater after she had spent some time with her friends; they never did like him (for good reason) and thus he waited until each one had been picked up by their respective guardians until it was just her. He hadn't meant for it to turn out how it did, but when she glanced up at him beneath those blonde lashes, her brows knitted in concern and plump lips pursed as she asked, "Est-ce que vous va bien?"

Was he okay? No, no he was certainly not. The desire was overwhelming and the barrier he so carefully built failed him. She must have recognized the danger within him based on how her persona quickly morphed to fear. He could see the gears turning in her mind as she tried to process the sudden change of the man she knew her entire life; he imagined she had asked herself. "Who was this stranger that eyed me like a predator with the face of a friend?" He thought her wise as she turned on her heel and ran fast. Unfortunate for her, he was faster.

She never stood a chance.

Once he was finished with her, he knew his lapse in self-control was to be his undoing. She was his undoing. He caressed her cheek, watched as she flinched fearfully away from him, and bid her farewell. Her purity was soiled and the desire he felt no longer substantial; all that he saw now was a battered body and a bruised soul, which is how he left her on the pavement to disappear into the darkness of the night.

-------------------------------------- lips that shame the red, red rose ---

A "catatonic state" was how the doctors explained it to the heartbroken parents as they watched their golden girl fade like a wilting flower. Since she phoned them from a booth that night, after they rescued her from the cold chill, she was immediately brought to the nearest hospital. Doctors and nurses prodded her fair skin with needles and pressed for answers she wasn't providing. She was merely a still statue, having slipped into a catatonic state in a manner of hours. The medical diagnosis was post traumatic stress disorder, as she neither spoke nor fidgeted; merely lay there for hours upon hours. And so she remained for weeks on end. Nobody had heard word of the predator's whereabouts and that wasn't for lack of trying. Investigations were conducted and it all but became a manhunt and a race against time before he vanished.

In stead of his absence, Rosalie became less and less of herself. The glow of her skin dimmed, her body thinned, the sparkle in her eyes grew dull, and it seemed as if the life within was slipping away as the days passed. She was released from the hospital two weeks after the incident to be with her family as a home stay under medical supervision. It was only a matter of time, the doctors said, before she would return to any amount of normalcy. It was a waiting game.

A full year passed with only minor progressions--sitting up and walking around, occasionally responding to questions with a nod or shake of her head. And though her parents hoped for answers and help, it came from one least expected: Stefan's sister, Verna. Verna had been living in America for nearly the entirety of her life and had made it her home, though she remained ever so close to her family and Rose. It devastated her to hear the news of Rose's well being and she instantly came to the rescue. Verna all but demanded Rose come stay with her in New York, determined that a change of environment and a fresh start would be good for the girl. It took quite some persuading yet, when Verna had her mind set on something, it was near impossible to shatter her will and Leah and Stefan were desperate to see their daughter return to the girl she once was. Verna arrived a week later to whisk Rose away on the next flight out of Paris to a new beginning.

----------------------------------- in ageless sleep, she finds repose ---

She hardly remembers the time that faded past since the events of that night that haunted her. The memories plagued her mind like a reoccurring nightmare that never ended; a fitting analogy, she decided, since it felt as if she was slowly returning to reality from a long sleep the moment she left France. Moving to New York with her aunt was only a small step to recovery from the crippling depression yet it seemed to be the proper choice. Aunt Verna insisted that she returned to a semblance of normalcy and offered her the opportunity to mold her life how she pleased. It was a tantalizing offer, though her mind was still corrupted by tragedy. Being away from Paris, from the area he had taken her, was a breath of fresh air though she couldn't erase the past.

Per the insistence of her parents and aunt, Rose attended daily therapist sessions and prescribed the appropriate medications. They helped stabilize any mood swings and a dangerous pitfalls into the clutch of her depression, allowing her a glimpse of the girl she once was. Rose craved the feelings of returning to how she was, but she also realized nothing could return to how it was. She was the one jigsaw piece that was broken and could no longer fit into the puzzle. So instead, she needed to find a new puzzle and she later discovered that at Manhattan Prep.

High school is a time for self-reflection and discovery and Rose was not an exception to the case. It was difficult to assimilate back into the frenzy of high school, yet her status as a foreign transfer student made her nearly the talk of the year. Rose had never been one to shy away from attention nor opportunity, yet since the incident a year ago, she was beginning to realize how broken she truly was. And she didn't want that! She would extend kindness to those that approached her and made the attempt at friendship. Just those connections alone helped to soothe the crippling depression that threatened her as night fell. And then he came along...

Declan Phillips both fascinated and terrified her. Though he held no resemblance to the man that stole her innocence, she had no desire to open herself to the experience of getting close to someone that could hurt her again. But despite resistance on both parts, they were simply attracted to another like ends of a magnet and she fell hard and deep. They were the golden couple of Manhattan Prep and the two couldn't have been happier. Once more, she felt like she was in a dream but instead, this one was pleasant and she wouldn't have minded remaining forever there.

But like all dreams, this one too had to come to an end. Declan had such high hopes and dedication to pursue his own personal dream of becoming a tattoo artist. She was one of his top supporters, if not the very top, and even went so far as to become his very first client! She knew her parents would disapprove, yet despite that, she wanted to be the one to push Declan's dreams further even if by a fraction. Thus she had him tattoo a small rose design in the same area of her faint birthmark. It's a memory Rose looks back on fondly, but it was also a small step towards the end of the beginning.

From then on, Rose still continued to encourage Declan's pursual of his dream--even at the cost of their love. She knew that it wouldn't be right for her to stay by Declan's side as he tossed in the towel and abandoned the path to Harvard. Her parents also encouraged the best for Rose and she was loathe to go against their wishes of her attending Harvard. Harvard offered her the opportunity to better herself and seek opportunity, something she's been wanting to return to since moving to America. That was her destined path, which unfortunately, didn't coincide with Declan's. And so she pinched herself to wake from the dream; she put an end to it. It's both her biggest regret and greatest accomplishment.

Though separating from Declan was excruciatingly painful, it was a martyr act that eventually set her on her own path to independence. Rose continued on to Harvard per the insistence of her family to follow a business degree. It was all she ever knew from her family and they instilled it that it would be her greatest chance of success. It was difficult to once again adapt to a foreign environment, this time without the support of her family, and she reverted back to her damaging thoughts and ways. There would be days where she wouldn't move from her bed and skip classes; there were days when she would be wracked by emotions and sob uncontrollably; there were days where she thought of taking her own life just to simply end the pain of having lost her first, true love. She nearly even took a knife to her thin wrists, but as she hovered the trembling blade above her skin, she knew she couldn't complete the task. The thought of causing her family even more suffering was enough to prevent her from doing so and she knew Declan would be disappointed in her for even thinking the thought. It invoked a triggering thought within her at that point, at the fact that she was disappointed in herself!

Rose expressed her disappointment to her new therapist and just speaking it aloud only reiterated her dissatisfaction for her present state. She wanted to be more than just a pity case and more than just a sleeping beauty! She wanted her dreams and passions back! She wanted her life back! Though she'd like to say it happened over night, there were still days when she would isolate herself in her dorm room to simply be, but she slowly extended herself out of her shell bit by bit. She had accepted that things would never return to how they were, but she needed to build herself back up on her own. She realized she needed to think for herself lest she drown in the imposed interests of others; though it terrified her to be independent after having been dependent for so long, she also knew it was what she needed most if she were to develop her identity again.

With her Bachelors degree in hand, Rose dropped out of the Masters program--much to the dismay of her parents. Instead, she took an opportunity that was presented to her. Since graduation, she had received multiple job offers from all over and one in particular caught her eye: Youth Network Coordinator in San Diego. Instantly, she knew that that was the career for her. It involved working with children and adolescents and utilizing her business degree that she discovered she had an inherent knack for. A family gene, she could envision her father boasting proudly. Rose packed her dorm items and soon was on the next flight to San Diego, California--the place she remembered Declan had disappeared to after his own dreams. What better place for her to do the same? And she was still holding out hope that she still held a place in his heart as he does in her's...

Hey Lyssa dear!

Thank you for your patience. Rosalie has had so many ups and downs. Reading about her attacker was difficult and that was in part in how you wrote him. It was scary and I applaud you for being able to convey that. I am super excited to see where her journey continues and all the interactions she's bound to have now that she's arrived in San Diego!

Congrats and don't forget your claims!
