“I am sorry, Charmeine, for so many things it is hard to express them all, but I am going to try.”
He took a big breath, and looked in her eyes. “I am sorry for not supporting you. I am sorry for not believing in you. I am sorry for not having faith in you. I am sorrym Charmeine. If you let me show you, for the rest of my life until the end of time, I will never doubt you again.”
“Tabbruis, I can’t do this now.”
“Please let me finish.” He gently held her chin, looked into her eyes and declared, “Charmeine you are my life. You are my light. If you go back to Long Island…”
She walked to the terrace stone wall. “Tabbruis, it isn’t so easy putting Jack and Jill back together again. I really need to be alone.”
“Look at me this time, Charmeine. I have to say my peace, and I will leave.” He stood beside her.
She turned and faced him with her hands defiantly across her chest and sighed.
“If you go back to Long Island, I will accept it, but let me go and be near you. Let me live close to you. I can buy any kind of house or apartment you wish for your own privacy. You do not need to see me, just let me be proximate to you, for you are the center of my Earth. God knows I cannot live without you. However, you will never have to lay your eyes on me. This is what I ask. Nevertheless, please forgive me, Charmeine. Forgive me enough to let me just be close to you. If you abandon me, I will not survive. Wherever you go, I will go with you. Whatever you want, I will give it to you.”
He unfolded her arms and took her hands which sparked. He unclenched her fists and drew them up in front of them, palm to palm. Her sparks began to go up and down their bodies, enveloping them with light.
“Tabbruis, do you remember the first time this happened? You were trying to convince me not to leave and sacrifice myself to the Elder Council.”
“Yes, I remember, my love.” He drew nearer to her. “I know you cannot lie to me. So answer me this, do you have the strength to be without me?”
I love the part where Tabbruis says that he just wants to be near Charmeine.
It brings a tear to my eye today.
So much love…
Enjoy the video, it’s another song that makes me shiver.
Lots of love, Emily

Okay, I believe I’m a Paranormal Romance Connoisseur.
Others would say I’m freak about the genre.
However, I choose to believe that we all have little quirks. This is mine.
I love Paranormal Romance!
I religiously read novels, watch movies and TV, and even go to plays of the Paranormal Romance genre.
So, with that little bit of embarrassing fact being divulged, I’m going to share with you my experience from watching the new movie, DRACULA UNTOLD.
I really loved the premise of this movie. Instead of the regular, run of mill evil Dracula . . . this Dracula had a mammoth cause to conquer.
The relationship he has with his wife and child is loving and downright heartwarming.
Yes, and I was brought to welling up as the story developed between the family.
This story of Dracula was not of selfishness or wanton evil, it was about being able to protect your home and loved ones.
Being a hero!
I am always puzzled how villianized the Dracula story is, but this was a truly different take.
Okay, now I’m going to tell you the truth!
The main reason why I loved this movie is because of LUKE EVANS! Oh my . . .
I mean, there are roles made for actors, and this was made for him.
He excelled at it. Not only being my perfect vision of Dracula, his speech, actions, and mannerisms were spot on how Dracula would be.
There is a character in The Light-Bearer Series, Dmitri, who the Dracul Legend was made from. Yes, I used the plot in my novels, but with a totally different twist.
Luke Evans would be an excellent Dmitri!
I was thinking during the movie, I wonder if he will play this role in my movie version of The Light-Bearer Series? Oh my . . .
Gary Shore, the Director did a fantastic job as the action was fast-paced and gripping.
The cinematography and special effects were unbelievably good! I know a lot of the effects were CGI, but I couldn’t tell it. Some of my favorite movies have cheesy CGI and/or special effects. It really detracts from the story, these did not. I was suckered into believing a million bats can wage war against a hoard.
The music by Ramin Djawdi is driving and compelled the scenes. It added to the artistry. Now, I watched this movie in IMAX with Surround sound. I realize that may have helped intensify the experience, but it was worth the money I laid down to watch it.
For all this and more, I would say if you are a Paranormal fan, RUN, don’t walk to see this movie, DRACULA UNTOLD!
If you are an action and historical fan, you would like this movie also.
For my very, self-admitted addiction, I found this version of Dracula to be one of the best I’ve seen in a very long time!
I’m adding it to the list right with John Badham’s, Dracula, which is my all-time favorite movie!
See this movie before it leaves the theater, the small screen won’t give you the wonderful majesty this movie provides!
The Trailer is below, but it won’t do DRACULA UNTOLD justice. I don’t think any trailer could!
I will give this movie a rating of a 10 plus out of 10!
Lots of love, Emily
