If tradition were a name, so it would be the name of the Mellarks.
The first Mellarks to live in Sunset Valley came to the town in the year of 1905, and it was then when they established the first town Hospital: The Mellark Hospital.
The town’s people could not be more thankful, and it was so how the Mellark family came to be of so much fortune and influence within the people of Sunset Valley. They were one of the most respected families in the town. However, respect was not all they had; their lives were source of much gossip and mockery among the people. Their past history had been so deeply rooted in the mind of the towner’s, it had become tradition to discuss their lives and anyone else who thought it was wrong to do so change their minds once they became aware of the minimal piece of information about the life of the Mellarks.
Like so, it had been for more than 100 years, and it was no different now for Camille and her family, the current Mellarks living in Sunset Ville.
But this story is not about how the Mellarks came to be of fame and fortune… yes, I just put you through all that for fun, ha! 😉
This story will be about Annabelle Mellark, daughter of Riggo and Camille Mellark, granddaughter of Joseph and Sophia Mellar; great-granddaughter off… well, you get the idea! How he life was never the same at the first talk of marriage, and how tradition became more than just a family character in her life.
