I opened my eyes. Everything I had once known had changed. My surroundings were crystal
clear. I could hear hoof beats from carriages miles away. I turned to see William’s face.
“Will?” I was surprised at how my voice sounded, “Wait what? What’s happening? Where am I? Who is John? What did he do to me?” The questions flowed out of me in my state of confusion.
“Slow down,” he said with a chuckle, but then his face grew serious, “John was a vampire. I am a vampire. You’re now a vampire. John was the one who attacked me. John was the person that helped me get through my first years being a vampire. I was never away on a business trip. It was just that I couldn’t be near you until I learned to control myself, but now it is so much easier. Elise, you and I can live forever together now.”
“Forever… Wait, forever? Will, you make no sense.”
“Of course I don’t,” he muttered to himself, “Let me say it slowly. You...are...a...vampire. That means you will live forever. Got it? Get it. Good.”
“Okay,” I said slowly.
“Alright, come on, Elise. It’s time to get you a snack.”
He offered me his hand, but I stood up quickly enough without his help. I was really liking this new vampire thing, but I then felt it. It grew like a wildfire across my throat. It itched and burned for something I didn’t know. I smelled the blood from where I had once laid in pain. It smelled so sweet, so good. Will saw me look at my own blood, and laughed.
“You’re quite the emo vampire, aren’t you?” His smile showed off his white teeth.
“Come on. We’ll go get you some food. You might not like it as much as the real thing, but it will numb that burning feeling for awhile.”
I slowly followed him, but stopped as soon as I passed by a mirror. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I was more beautiful than I ever thought possible. If I was good-looking before than I have no idea what I was now. The one thing that stuck out was my red eyes. They were so ugly. Will looked back as me and laughed.
“I know, you’re face is just so messed up. And I thought I couldn’t stand it before,” he smirked.
“Shut up, Will,” I retorted.
“Oh Elise, have a laugh. You were the most beautiful girl before, and now you’re the most beautiful, well, vampire, and that’s hard to be,” he said with a grin on his face.
I followed him outside into a large forest. The cabin looked small compared to all the towering trees around it. Will motioned for me to follow him as he started off into the forest. I felt like I was flying as I ran through the forest. I easily passed Will, but as soon as I did he grabbed me, and made me stop.
“Elise, there’s something you need to know. When you first become a vampire you will not be able to control yourself around humans. For most newborn vampires it doesn’t matter to them if they kill a human because it’s what we were made to do, but to me that’s just wrong. So I only drink animal’s blood. It’s not as satisfying as human blood, but it helps me get by. I don’t know if you care about drinking human blood, I will still love you even if you do chose to drink human blood, but please consider this carefully,” he looked at me in concern. Obviously I had a choice to make. Hmm, be fully satisfied and kill innocent people or be just OK and only drink animal blood?
“You honestly think I’m that horrible of a person, I mean vampire, as to kill a poor human?” I laughed at my own joke.
“I don’t know, you can be pretty mean, and you’re not a “person” anymore” He smiled. He was obviously happy with my decision, “Okay well, make sure you stay close to me in case a human is nearby. OK?”
“Alright, will do,” I replied.
