Marcus

Oh, my chamber. Nothing has changed here since I built it 2000 years ago. The marble high chair that I was sitting in right now was as delicate as ever. I let myself slump in it as I savoured the blood I enjoyed just a few minutes ago. The feeling was refreshing, renewing my strength like it always did… How I would miss this once I acquirethe immortality that doesn’t depend on blood…

Whilst I was pondering, Caius suddenly entered the room. He was looking at me speculatively. I straightened up to greet him.

“What’s with the look?” I questioned. He was always like that whenever something was troubling him.

“It’s about that girl,” he said indignantly. “She’s really different, Marcus. She’s not like us. She’s much stronger and more powerful than any of us, even if the three of us combined. Can you see what she can do? She can do every ability that she’s aware of!”

“I know,” I said confidently. “I know exactly what she is.”

Caius gave me an inquisitive look, and I suddenly laughed.

“Do you remember the Valdrierie?” I asked him, teasingly.

He looked confused at first and then suddenly shocked.

“You mean… she’s a…” he uttered. He might’ve forgotten the story that I shared to him a thousand years ago, I thought. Well, to share it again would do no harm.

“You see,” I sighed, preparing for a long story, “the Valdrierie is the common ancestor of two kinds of race. One is us, and the other is the spirit warriors. When we and those warriors existed, the Valdrierie suddenly disappeared due to unknown reasons. I can’t believe they disappeared seeing that they are indestructible, with no means whatsoever. We are the lower class compared to them.”

Caius laughed at this.

“Lower c-class? Are you serious, Marcus? They are our ancestors! Certainly we are superior to them.”

"Don't tell me you believe that rubbish humans cite as biology, Caius," I said stiffly

I waited for his response, but when I got nothing I continued.

“You’ve never seen the Valdrierie. I have, once. And they are extremely powerful. They can mimic powers, shape shift, and their powerful instinct is incomparable.”

At this new information, Caius quickly glanced back at me.

“Shape shifters? Just like those stupid mutts in Quileute?” he asked.

“Yes, my friend,” I confirmed. “So to put it simply, that girl, is both vampire and a spirit warrior. I don't think she's a wolf, though we will correct that if she ever shape shifts. But her gift is the most important thing here. Do you ever consider having her strength?” I grimaced.

“Certainly a dream come true, but impossible to achieve,” he answered back.

“Who said it is impossible?” I glared at him.

He glared back, wide eyes eminent from the darkness.

“Valdrierie is indestructible, yes,” I continued. “But everything has a weakness, no matter how powerful you are. In the case of the Valdrierie, during the Full Moon, they become vulnerable, weak. So to gain their powers, all I have to do is kill her while in this situation and eat her rotten heart.”

“Her heart? Marcus! Surely, her heart was dissolved already!” Caius said, clearly scandalized.

“Not for the Valdrierie,” I said impatiently. “And mind you, Full moon is just days away, Cauis, only days away…”

I was satisfied with the mood I created there in that room. But one thing was for sure right now, and that was the end of the Bella girl...
