Chapter 2: He was the light gave me life.

My thoughts kept coming back to the voice that I heard while I was feeding. I could’ve sworn I heard somebody say those words. Riley insisted he didn’t hear anyone talking but me. I kept asking him and he probably got pissed off at me since he has been avoiding me for days. So I spent my time alone thinking over what happened. After some thought, I had to agree with Riley. It couldn’t have been the guy who I was feeding on. When I was luring him into the dark alley, his voice was rough and raspy. The voice I heard was soft and velvety. Almost musical, like a vampire’s. But that can’t be possible. If there was another vampire in the area, I would’ve known. And if there was somebody there, it wouldn’t have made sense at all. What the voice said didn’t make any sense either. How was it that he was no good for me? And how did he know name? Is it possible that my mind is making things up now? Is it possible for vampires to go insane? Is it?

So many questions unanswered, it was making my head hurt. I put my head on my hands and tried to make the pain go away. I was so lost in my thoughts that I didn’t hear anyone approach.

“Bella… Bella!” Someone literally shook me.

I looked up to see two crimson eyes look down at me.

“Victoria. Is anything wrong?”

She raised an eyebrow at me.

“I should be asking you that question. I’ve been calling you for the past five minutes.” She said irritated.

“Oh sorry… I just got … distracted”

She continued to look down at me. Sometimes, I swear there was something more behind the looks that she gives me. Like there’s anger or something that she isn’t telling me. I asked Riley about it before but he told me to just brush it off. That it was nothing. She was just like that. So, I just shrug it off every time she gives me those looks.

She dropped her gaze at me and looked past me.

“Meet us by the river up north. I got another job for you.”

With that, she turned around and left. I sighed. I knew there was going to be another one. Those jobs never ended. I grabbed my stuff and cleared off any trace I might’ve left. After doing a final check, I looked ahead and broke into a run.

The feeling of the wind on my face sent calming waves throughout my body. Running was my therapy. It was the only remedy I have for the gaping hole in my chest. There was this unknown emptiness that sucks everything that was me. Every time the hole opens up, the pain I feel was just too much. Everything else in my body goes numb and the pain takes over. On some occasion, it got so bad that my body would collapse to the ground and start shaking. It scared the hell out of Riley and Victoria even seems concerned at one point. It felt like I was falling apart for some reason. Victoria claimed that something or someone, probably from my past, caused me so much pain that I never got over it. She also claimed I must’ve been hurting before I was changed and when I was changed, the pain didn’t go away. That was her claim. It made sense at some point but I still wanted to know the reason behind it.

I don’t remember anything in my human life. It was a dark, empty space and no one could help me with it. After my change, I woke up in darkness. I didn’t move from where I woke up. Nothing made sense back then. I could hear everything clearly for miles but I couldn’t see anything. It was pitch black and it scared the hell out of me so I stayed. That was when I started to count. I was getting weak as the time passed by. I was about to reach 7,775,869 when I heard a different sound. It sounded like footsteps but I still didn’t see anything so I continued to count. And then I saw it. A tiny dot of light getting bigger and bigger. I stopped counting then and I never counted again. A hand reached out to me and I held on to it. I didn’t let go. I didn’t want to be alone anymore. I didn’t want to go back in the dark. I’ll go wherever he would go.

Riley had been my light ever since then. I found out later that it was Victoria who had initially found me but she ordered him to get me out of the cave. And because of that, I owed my life to them. They told me what I was and taught me how to hunt. They made me stronger. Strong enough to kill newborns even right after their change. I became their pet. Like I said, it gave me purpose. One thing to do in this never ending life.

I started to slow down as soon as I heard water flowing from the river. I immediately saw where Victoria and Riley were standing. They were talking in low voices but stopped as soon as they were aware of my presence. Riley shot me a grin before looking back at Victoria.

“I hope you left your distractions behind” Victoria said.

I nodded looking down.

“Good. We’ll be moving up north from here. There are a few newborns I want you to get rid of but you have to be careful. It’s in a city, so that would mean humans. I know you could control your thirst but my advice is to hunt before going. I’ll give you more information when we get there.”

I simply nodded. I’ve been in cities before so I know what to expect.

“Another thing. There’s a large coven of vampires near that area. You have to make sure they don’t see you or smell you”

I frowned.

“How would I know they’re not the ones that I’m supposed to get rid of” I asked confused.

“You would know they’re different”

“How?”

“First off, they’re not as blood thirsty as you would think them to be. Second, they interact with humans. And lastly, they have golden eyes.

I was confused with the last thing she said but nodded anyway. Vampires with gold eyes? That’s a first.

“Good. Now let’s go. It would take us a day to get there” Victoria said and started to lead the way. Riley followed and I was right behind him.

Maybe I’ll get the chance to observe them from far away.
