I silently followed Heidi to my bathroom. She smiled at me before allowing me to see myself. I felt my eyes pop and my jaw drop.
I was…beautiful. There was no other word to describe it. I didn’t have the looks Heidi possessed, but mine were close.
I was paler than I had been before. My face was sharper now, somehow. My cheekbones were more defined, and my nose more delicate. My eyelashes were black, and long. My eyes were larger and scarlet red, as I knew they would be. My lips were a rosy red and even fuller. My brown hair lightened slightly, still possessing the red highlights. It was shinier, and had a gently wave to it. My body now was a work of perfection.
Heidi laughed at my expression. “I swear, that is how every newborn reacts when they see themselves for the first time after the transformation,” she said lightly. I smiled in agreement. There was no way to avoid the shock of what your eternal body was.
“I don’t think anyone can help it…” I murmured.
“Oh, I know! You should have seen how I reacted when I first saw myself! I thought an angel was standing in the way of my reflection!” She remarked, frowning slightly. I shook my head.
I shuddered suddenly. I felt like my throat was on fire, like flames were being shoved down me. A large pain clenched my stomach, like someone had squeezed it tight. Heidi looked at me in alarm, and then understanding.
“Oh, you’re hungry! Well, I’m going out in a bit to fish, so if you could wait for maybe an hour, I’m sure I--“
I stopped her. “No,” I wheezed out. “I don’t drink human blood! Only animal blood!”
She stared at me in surprise. “Oh, you want to try that? Well, I guess we could take you outside the city. It would probably be good to train you there anyway. We don’t want you to break the castle now, do we?”
I laughed weakly. She sighed, and put her arm around my shoulder, allowing me to lean into her. She led me down to a dark tunnel, and we walked down it, until we got to a small opening. She opened it and led me outside.
I looked back, and was shocked to see that we were almost two miles from the city. I could see it clearly still, but my mind measured the distance on its own. We must have been going very fast to have gotten that far so soon.
“I don’t really like animal blood, so you go ahead and hunt on your own,” Heidi said, dismissing me. I nodded, and started to run farther into the wilderness. I let my instincts guide me to food.
I stopped. The most delicious aroma I had ever smelled was coming from a few feet away. I looked, and saw two bears there, a mother and her cub. Without thinking, I lunged forward. I snapped the mother’s neck, and drank all of her blood. The cub tried to run, but I was too quick for it. I snapped its neck as well, and drank the sweet nectar of its blood.
I stood up, feeling much better. There was still a faint itch in my throat, but it was perfectly bearable.
I ran back to Heidi, following the scent she had left in the hills. I found her sitting on a rock next to a small stream. When she heard my approach, she looked up at me.
“Are you ready to train?” She asked. I cocked my head, and looked at her in confusion. “I mean, get used to your strengths. Aro is also hoping we will see your gift,” she explained. I nodded. I knew everyone expected me to have a magnificent gift.
She started out with teaching me how to handle things without breaking them. She explained that I needed to handle everything like a clump of sand; if you applied more than the smallest pressure possible, it would break. It took many tries (and several rocks, twigs and branches) until I got it. She said that for the first few months, I would have to avoid contact with humans. They looked similar to vampires to the extent that I may handle them as such.
Next we worked on speed. I didn’t even realize that I was naturally moving at a supernatural pace. We had to work for hours to get me used to going at a human pace, and feeling faster when I moved like a vampire. She said it would take the better part of a few years for that to feel natural.
I never realized how long we had worked until I noticed the full moon coming out. I was slightly surprised at how clearly I could still see without any light. She laughed at all of the confusion so clear on my face.
“Being a vampire is much more fun than it sounds, isn’t it?” She asked, grinning.
