Yasmin’s Love.  Yasmin’s Legacy.  My darling bride.

The first time I met, rather interacted, with Tey, it was in old Stonehaven.  She was almost done with a lengthy timer set by someone else.  I dropped in out of nowhere, saw that her keys were available, added three hours to every timer, flew off.  Never said a word to her, she never said a word to me.

While not talking to my victim was very unusual for me, it was not so for Tey, as I would discover.  Tey had a habit of standing by the entrance to the cage room and being afk.  Many a time I would lock her, block her from environment, set timers and leave her keys.  Many a time she would come back from afk just as I finished.  One day I finally sent her an IM and asked if it was okay to lock her like I did.  After what seemed like an eternity, Tey replied that it was fine with her.  I later found out that she even argued with someone that once tried to unlock her after I had locked her up.

As time went on, I eventually collared Tey.  In fact, our one year anniversary is just a few days away.  By the time I collared her, we had evolved to the point that I could, if lucky, sometimes get two, maybe three sentences out of Tey in a fifteen minute period.  A lot of times, during a scene, Tey would freeze up, or simply log off.  Many would develop quite a complex with this type of behavior, but something told me there was something else at work.

Finally, one day, during a nice arousing scene, Tey froze on me.  Just stopped talking, for about fifteen minutes.  Finally, she apologized and began talking again.  I had had enough at this point, so I bluntly asked her what was wrong.  It was then that Tey explained the reason behind her quiet and shy nature.  In RL, she suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome.

I was stunned.  Not by her admission, but by the fact that she was in a cyber environment at all.  How hard must it have been for her to even go thru being collared by me, much less scene and play with myself as well as her sisters.

By this time, I also owned a lovely girl named DiaperedPet Jewell.  Pet offered to begin meeting with Tey and going thru some roleplay scenarios, to help make her more comfortable during scenes.  I know when Pet left my Family shortly after that, she was still a tad frustrated with Tey, but the work she began went on, and today Tey is quite comfortable in just about any setting within SL.  In fact, Tey tells me she has even fired her therapist in RL as the relationships she has developed in SL give her more therapy.  Pet was very helpful, and I can never thank her enough.

Soon after Pet left the Family, I split with my partner at the time, Shibari Hobble.  Soon after that split, Tey approached me and let me know that if I ever took another partner, she would like it to be her.  I was touched.  In just seven months, Tey had progressed from one that could barely speak to me, to now proposing to me.  In fairness to myself and Shi, as well as Tey, I told Tey it was much too soon.  She accepted this, quite gracefully.

Over the following weeks, I made it a point to get even closer to Tey, and began to see her for the loving supportive sweet soul she is.  Soon, I let her know that the answer to her proposal was yes.  On July 14, we were married.  In my prior partnerships, I had never gone thru the actual marriage ritual in SL.  I recommend it to anyone considering partnering.  For some reason, it just seems to solidify the union.

Today, my partnership with Tey is certainly the strongest relationship I have in SL.  In fact, it ranks very high with my RL relationships as well.  Even I cannot say how long my time in this medium will last, but I am sure my friendship with Tey will far surpass it.  Tey is one of those people that you want to keep in touch with.  Find out who they married, what did they name their babies, what other tribulations do they have, etc.

I gave Teyonas the title of Yasmin’s Legacy because if my time were to end now, and my days in SL were to draw to a close, I would want people to remember me by looking at Tey.  She is my legacy to SL.  I do not take credit for changing her life for the better.  I do not pretend to think I have cured her AS.  I do however think I have assisted her in finding a path to an easier way of communicating with those she loves, here and in RL.  Tey tells me she has even begun speaking up at her place of employment, and been rewarded by being assigned to train new employees.

How incredibly difficult that must be for her at times, and how incredibly brave she must be for persevering.

You are my Legacy Love.  You complete me.  I love you.

But you are still an imp.  ; P
