The last few days were incredible. I loved being a vampire, but I still wasn’t used the dry, aching pain in the back of my throat. Will was always there for me whenever I complained about the pain. He told me that I would get used to it and learn to ignore it. I don’t know how he did it, but I don’t think I can get used the never ceasing dryness.
I learned my talent. It took a little while to completely form, but I was so happy when I found out I could do it. Will and were sitting together out in front of the cottage watching the sunset, but I all I could think about was about Will. I didn’t even know I was using my talent when he finally said, “Will you please stay out of my head?”
“I have no idea what you’re talking about,”
“Oh, yes you do,”
“I can assure you that I have no clue as to what you’re complaining about,”
“Well, I guess I assumed you already figured out your power,”
“Your power. When you are transformed into a vampire your biggest human trait is, um, amplified,”
“Okay so...what’s my “power” then?”
“Well, all I can tell you is that you keep putting thoughts into my head that I’m not even thinking,”
“I was only thinking about you...”
“And I guess for your power that’s all you have to do. You focus on a specific person and then you transfer your thoughts to that person.
“That’s my “power”?”
“I guess so. Can you hear what I’m thinking too?”
“I tell you what I’m thinking. I’m thinking that you’re the most beautiful vampire I have ever seen, and that...I love you,”
He kissed me on the lips.
“Alright, who’s up a late night snack?,”
I laughed as I raised my arm, “I am!”
He picked me up and swung me around until I begged him to stop. I laughed, and followed him as he ran off into the woods. I have always loved being in the woods, but now I could smell every wild flower, and hear every little bug scampering along the forest floor. We quickly found a large buck. I motioned for Will to go for it, I may be a vampire, but I’ve never liked killing animals. As I stood there I swore I heard a noise. It sounded like a large animal, maybe more than one, running, and it or they were getting closer. I figured it was nothing, but I would be sadly mistaken.
Will sprung forward to grab the buck, just as the two largest wolves I have ever seen ran into him. I saw the surprise on Will’s face as he quickly regained his bearings. I was glued to my spot, too shocked to move. The wolves charged Will again, but this time he was ready. He grabbed one wolf by the fur and threw him against a tree. The slammed the other wolf into the ground, but three more wolves appeared to help their comrades.
At this I jumped in the fight, and tried to help Will, but five against two is hardly a fair fight. The wolves quickly overpowered us. Three of them pinned Will to the ground while I kicked, jabbed, and bit at the other two. I managed to get the wolves away from long enough just in time to see one of the wolves tear Will’s chest apart with his teeth. I screamed and shoved the two annoying wolves aside. The three wolves continued to rip Will apart. I grabbed one of the stupid wolves who hurt Will and bit him in the neck. The wolf’s body became limp in my hands, and I threw him aside. At this the rest of the pack scattered, and I was left alone with Will...or what was left of him.
Hiis blood gathered in puddles around his body. I knelt down beside him, and overlooked the damage. Every bit of his flesh was either torn, gone, or red and swollen, but his face was perfect, as it always had been.
“No, no you can’t die. You’re eternal,” I choked back the “tears“, and tried to be strong.
“Well, I guess forever will just end sooner for me,” He tried to smile and I grabbed his hand.
“No, you won’t die, and I won’t leave you until you get better. We will get married, and adopt a kid. We’ll live in a small cottage in the woods, and live happily ever after. It’ll be alright, you’ll see,” I looked into his eyes, and saw nothing but pain.
“I’m not sure it will ‘Lise, but I promise that someday we’ll see each other again,” He was fading fast, and there was nothing I could do. I leaned in and kissed him; I lifted my lips just as he became completely still.
“No, no, no, no. This isn’t happening,” I rambled on, barely whispering, “I won’t leave you, it’ll be alright.” I sat back up, trying to force the tears to come. “ARGH! Why can’t I cry!” I screamed, smashing a tree causing it to fall. I turned to my left, and saw the corpse of the wolf-thing. Furious, I tore the carcass to pieces until there was nothing left.
I felt confused; unsure what to do, I ran, and ran until I collapsed in the middle of a forest. I laid there, trying to sleep, trying to escape the pain, but I could not. Memories tortured me, and I swore I heard his voice, but when I looked up there was nothing, but trees. I’m going mad, I told myself. For days, weeks, months, however long it was, I laid there mourning.
Then one day I found I could mourn no more. I was ready to face the future, whatever it held.
