#3 Marcus

| November 3, 2010 | 0 Comments

Aiden’s husband and father to Morgan, Love and Ryan. He is attempting to hold his family together after the loss of his wife. Marcus desperately wants his wife back and struggles to let her go knowing it is what he must do for the children so that they can have closure but Aiden’s death has been more than Marcus is really able to handle. He in general is a strong man both physically and mentally but the emotional aspect of her death has devastated him almost to the point of not being able to function. If it were not for his children he would have all but given up by now. In the back of his mind he knows his ability to cope with this is very weak and the way he has chosen to cope (drinking) is Not good but he feels he has no choice.

Marcus has lived most of his adult life in complete denial of his heritage and background. He is not ashamed of what he is and certainly not who he is now, but he does not want that part of himself anywhere near his children. Aiden could always accept and understand his strange behavior and did not probe too much to find out the secret she knew that he hid from her. She accepted him as he was and always looked to their future, not his past. He could never put into words how much this meant to him, to think of those memories brought so much pain he could hardly bear to remember that time in his life without her.

Marcus knows that Morgan is very sensitive and can “see” things others do not, this causes him concern to his core knowing where her abilities come from and it scares him what might happen to her in the future. When she was very young with Aiden’s help they guided her to close doors in her mind to help protect her from things that may want to harm her – simply by closing part of herself off. He and Aiden had both agreed this was best to protect their daughter since they were not completely educated in what might try to harm her. Marcus quietly did his own research even though it stirred up the painful memories of his past just to be safe in case things did not go as they had hoped. Aiden being Aiden had an entire locked file cabinet full of information she had found on various things that might try to harm their special daughter.

Marcus was relieved as the years passed and Love seemed to be a perfectly normal little girl hoping his curse would indeed skip a generation and she would lead a normal life. At the moment he is missing the signs that things are amiss due to his grief, his drinking and her acting out in morbid ways. Often he rocks Ryan to sleep thinking of Aiden. Sometimes he can even still smell her in Ryan’s room and feels she is near.

He continues to struggle with his duality hearing the voice inside, angry with his recent choices and urging, forever urging him to look for his dead wife.
