Chapter 1:I'll show you a sweet dream this night….
In the hospital,a few hours later.
"And how are we feeling this morning? You had quite an episode last night....Let me just pull the courtains.. "
"No don't... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" and went out the door screaming in pain.
"Somewhere to hide...somewhere to hide...dark...dark.....dark....Ohh yes here! Here is perfect!"
And again those wolves staring me...I'm hiding in the cold snow hoping they won't see me...but unfortunately they saw me..I ran but they caught me and bit me and drag me but the only thing I saw was their red eyes and felt the pain from their bites.....But it's just that dream again. Gosh I thought I got rid of that since this but now I have to go and clear things...
"Justy you're back...what?...where?..."
"Now it's not a good time to explain...you cannot stay with me it is to dangerous...you will understand me later.. Now I must go and find some answers'' Ohh and L do not forget I love u and this thing will never change.. Just be happy. .I'll be here if u need me...just think of me and I'll be there for you'
"So like that? Your leaving me?..You...you're not...anymore....Don't you love me anymore?"
"Bye L. Take care and be happy"
"I......will"
But before he finished his sentence I was out.

Chapter 2:This time was different!

It was a sweet night…perfect for a romantic dinner or something .Pfff..ha-ha!! Who am I fooling? It was chaos.. terrible,in my brain it was the end of me,of my soul,How?Why me? I was about to find out.

In about three hours I was at Cachtice Castle in the Carpathian Mountains.in the front of the massive wooden door I shouted:"Countess come out...you...you..."

No answer. "Fine.I'm coming in."..but when I entered no sign of Bathory or her little minion...but where? God now I'm really doomed!!! Geashhh!!! Justy don't panic now...calm...calm...aaaa. I'm alone..and I'm a monster...and alone....and....Aaaarghhhhh......

All of this it's falling away from me...the dreams..my thoughts are all blurry..and dark....I mean I know what I am..and I'm proud and wow but still something's missing.And it always will be amiss.

And again facing the cold mountain air with no place to go...scared.alone...I hide under the cold ground and await another sunset to come.

Chapter 3:Beggining

"Wow.This lake was never here before.Hmmm....Ohh well maybe I wasn't paying attention to the things sorrounding me."

And I dived in the cold,cristal clear water hoping....wishing all of this will go away eventually. But as I was swiming all of the horrors of that damned night came back to me before I could banish them away. God how could this happen? I was just a stupid tourist that came to visit the place of birth and the place of damnation of the virgins....Cachtice Castle the place where Countess Elizabeth Bathory tortured all of those girls..a place that was still a mystery after all these centuries. Well I think that my only mystake was that I...NO!! It was no mystake…she called me intentionally to...to....take me away from the living. My MYSTAKE was that I followed that voice and saw her.My! Wow! She was so beautiful and radiant. And I was like 'You cannot be her!!! She's dead!!!

"No I am not you stupid little girl..You humans with your imagination think that we do not exist anymore .But here we are hiding in the shadows and looking for new....offsprings!" she grinded at me so superiorly.

"But...how..."

"Nonsense!Galahad grab her!!" she said to her minion.

And that buffon grabbed me and tied me to the wall. A rush of adrenaline was running throuhg my vains.I was scared but happy in the same time. My mind was refusing to believe this..but my heart was ready to do this.It just.....

"Now.You listen to me carefully.From this moment on you will not be a human anymore!Tommorow night you will be...IMMORTAL" she laughed so loud that for a second I thought she had deafen me.

"You will not go to your loved ones anymore..you cannot tell anyone what you are..and from now on everyone will believe in us.Right Galahad?"

I cannot describe the pain and the cold that ran through me that moment.Every last drop of blood,life and sanity was slowly dripping away from my body.I knew I was ALMOST dead.

That dream even now wouldn't gave me peace.Those wolves were still haunting me.Maybe they were the sign..to warn me of this..but my stubborness was to strong to see this sign..to NOT GO to her when she called.

As I sat there with my eyes almost open I thougt I saw a little girl with bloody clothes and..and..ohh my!!A heart in her hands?I do not seem to recall correctly this aspect.

"Ahhh you are awake.And now let's finish this because I do not have much time" she wispered in my ears and she gave me her blood..and I drank it because it was so good and strong and I felt that need…the need that I only read of it in books.

After that everything was pitch black and..nothing….

Chapter 4:Facing the truth!

Like as if something stinged me I jumped out of the water at an impressing height from the ground and landed gently on the ground.Wow that was freaky.I have powers!! I have powers..Ha-ha I love being so childish!!! Now I should continue with my journey to nowhere. Ha-ha-ha!!!

Now my only thought was to go back home to my mother..Ohh!! Mother I love you so much! Is she crying for me?Is she worried?Whatever was the answer I was afraid to find out.

Some hours later I was in my city and relieved in a way.I fled through the dense tree branches in the park near my home and entered the apartment house.At my door it was MY Coffin with My NAME on it...I....I...mom...mother was crying her heart out despite the fact that she had never cried for anything.Never!But now....her child was lost...ME. I wanted to enter and hold her in my arms one more time like I never did,but it was too late now to do that so with blood tears in my eyes I left.

And there where my friends standing in grief not knowing what to say,just looking at the empty coffin because they couldn't find my body.Well that is understandable my body is with me ha-ha-ha.

For now I am going to hide a few days and make up a plan so I can get some of my stuff out without being spotted.Well that is easy..just enter grab what you can and get out...well maybe next night..let things rest a bit.

Wuhh!The big night now let me see and test all my powers.Ok I jump,open the window,grab what I can!Done!Gone!....not yet..I go to the big bedroom window and take one last look at my beautifull mother.Now I can go knowing that she is all right.

As I walk alone, thinking, that how a simple vacation could turn into one's greates nightmare,some bullies bump into me.

"Hey watch it" I said full of rage feeling how my fangs are hurting and my unbeating heart craving for blood and feeling their blood running through their vains.

"Look what do we have here guys." the big one said.

"Fresh piece of p***y."

"So baby looking for some fun" said the big one again

"Me?Ohh yeah!!!" and smiled devilish at my opponents.My eyes where glowing bright and they saw that but that was not a scare factor for them.Two I thought.No problem.

"Mark grab her!"

But before Mark could grab me I was in the back of the big one...and with an incredible speed and force I slammed him down on the ground,hearing how it's bones snaped.The other one tried to run but grabbed him and took him on the top of a house and hung him on the drain pipe.And with an insatiable thirst,pulled out my fangs and stucked them into the "poor" guys neck.I felt dizzy but full of life.It felt like my heart started to beat again and that warm blood was in my vanes giving me the power to do it again and again.The other was screaming in fear as he watched his friend being killed slowly by some girl.Although he was screaming and fighting for his insignificant life he ended up like his boss,friend or whoever was that.

Full and glowy,I took the two bodies and burried them in the nearest place I could find in that time of night.Don't know how well I hid them but anyway the police won't do nothing so I can leave this place.

Heading back to Cachtice Castle, because that was the only place I could stay for now,I was thinking that maybe that wicked Countess left me something,although I am a vampire I cannot survive without money.

But for now I have a long way back so I kept my mind and my focus on the road.Hi-hi!

Chapter 5:My new home

Uh!At last I'm home and right on time.The sun is almost up!

I was very tired from the journey back and cost me a lot of energy.My stench was unbearable because of the blood from those two criminals that attacked me.But for now I was forced to sleep like this until dawn.Another day,another dream.In this one I saw a man,guy don't know what it was and he started chasing me.Catching me,he held grip of me and said something that I wasn't able to understand.ButI woke up hearing the night tour.The night tour in the Castle promised to be more scary than the day tour but for someone in particular it was about to become a nightmare.I went up the stairs through the rooms the tour was supposed to goand followed them.In the back of the row was an outstanding solid man.Although he was an innocent,I was very hungy and I didn't knew anywhere else I could go because in a very big range the palace was sorrounded by forest.So with all my power I grabbed him, pulled him to the dungeon and drank all of his sweet innocent blood.In that moment I thought I heard a silent shriek in my mind and stopped right on time not to kill him.

Ohh my...what have I done?Aaaarrrghhh..I killed this man..and I'm so happy about it...What is wrong with me?

As I was lying on the floor crying of what I done I heard a very loud scream coming from upstairs.

"Howard where are you?Where are you honey?"

That poor woman was looking for him.No!No!No!Panic took over me as if I was human again and with a ultimate thought,grabbed my multi-tool that also had a small knife,cut his neck so the two tiny marks that my fangs left couldn't be seen anymore.I picked him up and threw him in the large hall,guided by the steps of the tourists.

"Ahhhh..HOWARD!!!!Nooooo!!!" Screams all over the room.

"Please stay calm because there is probably a wild animal hiding here" thetour guide was telling the others as he was pushing them away.

Wild animal?Ha-ha!!!I'm one hell of an animal.Before they entered the next room I fled through the window heading down to my room in the dungeon.

After all this I had to move again because they would find me and...do horrible things to me!!!Glup!!!!Again felling like a desperate human,telling myself that these feelings would go away soon,I started packing my things to leave almost forgetting why I came back.

"Well there must be something hidden here.I need money.Ok!To the tower.'

As I got in the tower I started searching for anything that might be helpfull in my journey.

"Ohh!!This room is so WOW.I could steal everything but the humans will notice that.Ha-Ha!!!"

So I started looking for gold,books,maps,and precious objects.After a couple of hours of intense search I laid down on the bed angry as I could not find anything.As I laid on the bed saw a mirror inside the canopy(the upper part of the bed).The light was reflecting it's self into the mirror on the wall,and as I oppened the door the light reflected into the mirror in the hall.So followed the light trail from mirror to mirror untill it stopped on a wall.I searched the wall and found a secret compartment with a skull shaped key in it.Pfffff!!!!Now I have to find the room...but where? was my question as I had no point and no idea where to start from.

Chapter 6:The mystery of the Skull Key

Sitting there,perplexed,looking at the strange Key in my hands I thought I'd better look in the Castle's history for some more information that might help me with this mystery.I remembered that in the big hall as you enter the castle was the book with the Castle's history so I went there.Gently removing the glass carcass without being detected by any of the fancy security cameras I took the book and started to read it.Somehow I was glad that I scared the tourists away because now I could read without being disturbed.

Now....I found out that there is a hidden door in the dungeon,after you pass some pillars and stuff.WellI wrote down the paces that I have to follow to get to that room,placed the book,and gone I was.Back in the dungeon:

"Well let's see...1....2....3......and press the stone on the wall near this door...Hmmm....Evrika!!!Uuuu how exciting!An underground tunnel leading where?Hmm let's find out.So I walked along the tunnel that was lead me into a big spacious tomb.Rotate the lamp.....Aaaaaaa.WOW!!! Valuable books,tapestry work,paintings,and some gold coins and jewelery were lying there unprotected."

"Hmmm..smart girl you are.I see you have found my room" I turned and I was so mad at her that I fled at her trying to attack her..but she grabed my neck and threw me away as if I was just a rag doll.

"You stupid child?Have you already forgotten who created you?I came here to tell you that you can have all of this...."

"I thought you were dead." I interrupted her.

"As you can see I am not...hmm gone for good let's say because I AM DEAD!!!HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!" she laughed strongly in my face.

"Why did you do this to me?Couldn't you find someone else to transform?" I said looking like a mad rabbit at her.

"No you silly girl.You are strong even you do not know it,and as I remember you wanted to be one of us so much a few years ago...so how could I refuse such an offer?Good girl,smart,wanting to go on the adventure of her life and now she refuses to accept what has been given to her?This is insane...but you didn't had a choice so...here you are.I see that you havea new power:you can read the thoughts of the people.That is something that most of our kind does not posses...You should improve your abilities and try not to care so much about these pesky mortals."

"Are you an Elder?"

"HA-HA-HA!!!What do you think?" she said climbing on the big window and jumping into the darkness."Remember what I told you silly girl and you'll be just fine."

My hole body was hurting...the pain that I felt the moment I was getting up it was unbarable..she had such a great power..she grabbed me and threw me just like that....

But I had other things to concentrate on.One of them was taking shelter as the dailight slowly penetrated the half collapsed tomb.So I took shelter in the other room,closed the fake door and soon fell asleep on the big pile of books.

Chapter 7:You are not welcome here!!

A sound of wing like woke me up.It was that stupid minion of Bathory,Galahad.

"You'r not welcome here,in case you didn't noticed that.Now I will ask you to leave me alone." I said looking very angry at Galahad.

"Sorry no can do because I have an important message from Elizabeth." said her little puppet.

"What part of LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!don't you understand?" I yelled.

"The part where I am supposed to follow orders..but not from you.Ha-ha-ha!!!!Anyway here." he said throwing a letter at me.

"Yyyyyy get it away!That envelope touched me!!!Yuck!!!"

"I see.You act like a MORTAL,girl!This is a better time to start acting like a REAL vampire!!."

And he was gone.Well that was...Ouch!!My head..hurts....too many thoughts...voices...'Aaa what is this?I asked myself.'Is this some kind of trickery from Elizabeth?'But in short while,after that terrible headache passed I remembered that she told me that I have the power to hear thoughts.This was very blurry..I mean all my life I wanted to know what was in other's mind,but I have never imagined the pain.

Looking at the sealed envelope I picked it up.It said:

~My dear,~

I know that your hate toward me is unseen but I took the liberty to...give you a mission and send you into the world.

All of your mortal life wanted to go see the world.Now I give you this chance.Now read carefully:

Your first location will be to travel to Japan.There you will meet a vampire clan that is stronger than the other clans here.They know me,so I entrust you to them.At the airport Karumi will wait for you.Be carefull because there is not like here in the Carpathians.There are more clans of vampires and many sick people,and you are just a little baby vampire.So watch your back.After you will complete your training there,you will go to the second location:

Russia.There you will meet the charming Prince Vladimir.This will be all for now.Enjoy your stay and be carefull where you go and what you do!!

~E.B~

Pffffff yeah right!Ohh at least I'm going to tra....but before I finish my sentence the envelope bursts in flames and burns.Hmm smart girl you are Bathory.No trail.HA-HA-HA.

The last thing I remembered from my last meeting with the Countess is that I was allowed to take everything I wanted from there.So I started "packing" up almost everything that was in the little secret room in the toomb and the rest...wellI will think about it later.My first thought was to find someone that could manage my goods and keep them safe.Well a bank will do but no....I needed an accountant..someone that could calculate,and keep my money safe in the same time.Arriving in the city I could feel everyone looking at me.HA-HA.Sure they were looking I was dirty and looked like a poor child that was livingin the streets,but I had enough money to keep me safe for a long time.After asking someone where could I find an accountant,a very good one I wanted,I made my way to her office.It was a late hour but thank God for workaholics.

"I am sorry but we do not receive beggars"she said.

''Well that means I looked worse than I imagined.HA-HA!!!'' I thought.

'Well I am looking for someone capable to keep my money and my goods safeand calculate the amount of moneyI win or loose,and also an great attorney,and people recomended you!So will you help me?"

"Ha-ha!!Look at yourself!You must be joking me!!" she murmured.

And with one hand I pulled out a gold necklace and said:"Will this do?"

Cannot describe the expression on her face when she saw that.

"Well in that case..excuse me for being so rude.I did not knew that you have such a great amount of money!"she said as in her eyes I could see that mortal greed,as she was finishing writing some papers.

"Now my conditions:You will ever in your mortal life speak about what happened here not even your life is in danger.

It is not your bussiness on what I spend my money or from where I get it.

When I need you,day,night you will be there and answer to my call.

If you need to contact me this is my number.Do not loose it,show it,or give it to someone else,not even ifthey ask for it.Who wants to talk to me,talks to you first,and then you tell me.

That is enough for now.I have valuable things with me...but do not feel like putting all these things in a bank..so you will have to think somewhere to keep them or sell them for a good price.I have some more things left but you will go there with me and you will never reveal that location to anyone.EVER!!!Understood?You seem a perfectly normal and capable woman and I think you can respect these simple conditions"

"And when do you want to pick the rest of the things up miss...."

"Justy.Call me Justy...and no one knows my name besides you and a few more people and I want to leave it that way"

"Yes I understand perfectly.Oh and my name is Crystal...and nice to meet you to,under the circumstances that we have not been properly introduced.And now let's go to the location because from the looks of it I know you want to get them now."

"Hmm you are a smart girl..."

And off we were.All the way to the toomb I had not said a word,I just put on my headphones andlistened Him-Vampire heart and Distraught Overlord-Carry Dawn because now these were my favourite songs giving my condition.

"And here we are!!" she said with joy in her voice.

An unfamiliar scent hit me when we entered the tomb.As for Crystal,she was terrified,even though she would not show it,and scared in the same time,and a bit clumsy and shaky,but luckly she couldn't sense the scent.Was another vampire here or was it just an wild animal?.That I was about to find out...A couple of hours later we were done gathering and went back to her office.It was almosttwo o'clock when we got back to the office and of course I was hungry...well not that hungry to harm Crystal but enough to leave in a hurry babblying an horrible excuse but she bought it because she just smiled at me and approved thinking that maybe I was tired and wanted to sleep.I was satisfied.She was young,had no children,no responsabilities,no home of her own..but with my help she will soon have somewhere to stay other than her little office with the tiny couch.But now I had to find some fresh blood or else I will starv.Exiting the building I walked allong a very lonely path and I could not see anyone so decided to find trouble.Like never before I was not afraid anymore,by the contrary I WAS LOOKING FOR TROUBLE! and eventually found it.A little punk that tried his best to put me down,but I just teased him for a bit and then caught him by the neck,held him tight and sucked all of his blood,dumping his body into a cemetery not so far from there.Since I had no other place to stay I found myself forced to take shelter another day in the tomb.On my way back to the tomb I found a baby kitten and realised that not even now my love for animals had not dissapeared.That was hard because there were onlytwo hours left untill sunrise and I had to do something with the baby kitty.

"Ufff you little thing now I have to take you back to Crystal." I said looking at the little kitten.

The poor little thing was shaking and probably very hungry.Lucly Crystal was not sleeping so I dropped my kitty, and made my way back to the tomb as fast as I could.Although I could not rest,because that scent from earlier was tormenting me at the thought that someone or something else was here,I put my headphones on and turned on my mp3.

Chapter 8:Time to leave

I was very surprised to see Crystal the next morning very early,giving the fact that; I think, she hadn't got any sleep the previous night…and for her it was very agitated and freaky to see someone sheltering and sleeping in a tomb.

"Good morning sleepy head!" I heard from the other side of the wall.

"Don't you dare open this door Crystal" I shouted loudly at her. "Is it light outside?Because if it is I cannot come out..."

"No silly! It's not light outside.I noticed that you are more of a night person so I came when the light went out!" she said proudly of herself.

"Good girl.Very smart.Now we have to get packing for Japan.I have urgent business there so we must leave right away..but …Where's my cat?"

"Right here." and she pulls out of her bag the little fur ball.

"Mommy missed you so much baby.Isn't she cute?" and I took her rapidly from Crystal's arms into mine."And now off we go!"

In a short while we came back to the office where Crystal packed her bags too.She hadn't had anything fancy…just some clothes and a little small box of letters from her mother.

On our way to the airport a strange feeling of affiliation came to me and started talking to her.."So as we get to Japan I will buy myself a piano..I love music..it's the only close thing I have left…I lost my family…my friends..all that I had have dear..lost in this chasm of desperation….and…"

"Oh my dear…I didn't knew that.I am so sorry…did they died in an accident or something? This is so tragic…it's…"

"HA-HA-HA!! No you silly human..they are not dead…all of them are alive..I am dead…HA-HA-HA!!!"

"HA-HA-HA!!she laughed. "For a moment there I thought you said that you are dead..that was really funny Justy..really funny!"

"I'm not joking.I am dead.Not dead just immortal..but"

"Yeah and I'm filthy rich…living on Hollywood boulevard…Common…you are telling me that you are a vampire?And do you really think I will believe you?"

"Aha.." I said as I showed her my little fangs.

As she saw them in the reflection mirror in front of her…she got scared…pulled quickly the steering wheel and was this close to do an accident.

"Crystal are you insane?You were about to get yourself killed…how…."

"You…you stay away from me…you creep…you are insane…mad.."

"Crystal!! I shouted at her and grabbed her with an impossible strength. "Listen to me.If I was about to kill you…don't you think I might have done it by now?"

"Yeah but I am not convinced that you are a real vampire…how can you…" and before she could finish I grabbed her by the wrist and fled with her likethree-four meters above the ground.She was amazed and quickly put her down as she started to shake.

"That was incredible…you…you are real…you can fly…I had no ideea that vampires still exist..I mean I have read about this in the books…but never imagined that someday.."

"Yeah…yeah...bla-bla…Please spare me….I know…believe me…for me it's even more confusing than I thought it would be.But for now let us concentrate on our flight to Japan, shall we?"

"O-o-ok…s-s-sure" she said very scared.

And finally we were on our way to the airport.In about an hour we took off from Baneasa airport to Tokyo-Japan.The flight was relaxing…the more relaxed I was to see my little minion falling asleep…it was so comfortable..all of this.

When I was almost this close to falling asleep...my cell rings and a very sexy and smooth masculine voice sais:

"Konichiwa! We are waiting for your arrival at the airport.See you both then.Sayonara!"

And he hangs up…Uhh he made me…wow…but nevermind that..it's time to wake up my assistant.I do not know what time it was but thankfully it was still night.Outside at the airport Karumi and another two were waiting for us.Confident he walked towards us and said:

"Konichiwa.Nice to have you here.Countess Bathory told us you are about to come.You will stay with me,in my home,and your friend is going to stay at the hotel.For her sake it is better not to implicate her so much in this little business of ours….since she knows what we are…she fears us…and I do not want to take an innocent soul and unbound it from this earth.So this way please." and we steeped inside the big,black SUV that drove Crystal to the hotel and me home with Karumi.

"Call me if you need something and I will rush over here to you.Relax and take it easy.You had a rough day today.Now it is time for you to rest and think about tomorrow night.Stay and calculate my little fortune and find it a safe place.Enough for now.Good night Crystal and do not hesitate to call me if you need something." and I said my goodbyes to her.

She looked a little less scared now.Just hoping she will be all right,the big car took me and Karumi to his house.Karumi was very beautiful,and he had that anime guy kind of beauty.He was tall,and handsome.He had some big,dark eyes that cought my attention right away as I saw them,some red,perfect lips that I could sunk my teeth into,his hair style was enchanting and outrageous.It suited him like a glove,the kind of hair style any vampire would want.And of course:very pale skin.He was very elegant dressed up in a black cashmere suit,with a red ribbon around his wrists,some high heel boots with metal,silk and leather strips around them.He was fabulous.I could not help looking at him all the way,ignoring the fact that besides what he told me at the airport…now he hasn't said a word.His accent was perfect...and he was so serious when he had spoken to us as if he never smiled in his entire life…and as I was looking at him he turned to me,smiled and said:

"You will love it here.We have a lot to teach you….to become the ultimate vampire…you are a rhinestone and you need to become a diamond…and I will make you MY diamond…huh!!!" he giggled and looked at me with his dark eyes like as if he was trying to melt me….and to tell you the truth…he did melt…but not me…my unbeating heart….

Chapter 9:A new chapter in my life

"And we are here!" he said with a bit of sobriety and resignance in his voice.

I jumped out a bit,out of my seat as if he had woken up me from a long dream and of course I was dreaming of him.Imagining all of the crazy stuff….and you know the rest…HA-HA-HA..

"Here is my home."he said bored.

"WOWWWWW!!!! Is this really your house….?????? It is so big and spacious..this is not a house this is a chateau you are living in…"

"Yes,yes now let us go in so you can relax" and he took my bags into the house.

I cannot describe the beauty of inside the house….I was not wrong.He was filthy rich…he had very expensive paintings…Victorian furniture…a king size hall decorated with original paintings from Rembrandt,Caravaggio,Da Vinci and I also saw a painting from Nicolae Grigorescu-Taranca Din Muscel and I was so pleased to see it.But before I could see all the details in the hallway he took me up the stairs in a little rush.Those stair cases seemed to be endless…and I felt it took us an eternity to climb them…but in time I think I will get used to this fact.With a smile on his face he presented me my room:a gigantic chamber with it's own gigantic bathroom,a big chandelier hanging from the ceeling,a king size bed enough for ten people to sleep there I think.The floor was made from marble and it was splendid….the bathroom with all the arrangements for a young lady like me to take a decent bath there…and there were like a dozen of shower and bath gels,soaps,towels,crèmes,shampoos and roses on the floor….I know that looked like something else but it wasn't.He said that he liked to keep that bathroom in that way for female guests.Well totally reasonable…I purely loved those roses and finally took that most wanted bath. After I got out and dried myself I looked up in the wardrobe to see if I could change into something else,because my clothes were dirty and stinky…..and when I opened it I saw beautiful gowns and nigh dresses and..

"The master awaits you in the dining room.he suggested you to wear this.Good evening miss." and the butler hands me a box.

I took it anxiously to see my dress,because from the butler's sayings that was what the box contained,and I saw a marvelous dress and some superb high-heels and an breath taking diamond necklace.

"Wow! This guy sure knows how to win a girl's heart." I said to myself as I was dressing."And now off I go!"

Again those annoying stairs,and I think it took me like twenty minutes to find someone in the house who could show me the dining room,but fortunately I managed to find it.

"Hmmm..you sure do take your time" he said from behind the newspaper.

"Well you do have a big home and I got a bit confused by all of the rooms." I said smiling like a buffoon at him.

"Yes.I see.Well do not worry I will personally take you on a house tour to show you the sorroundings.But maybe tomorrow night because now we are busy talking about something else..Some blood?"

"HA-HA…yes please do…" I giggled as my eyes were sparkling,looking so thirsty at him.

"You are free to roam wherever you want in the house,whenever you want,you are free to follow me if you wish,to join me…I do not mind you presence.Here you will learn some new things and improve the skills that you already have like:mind-reading wich is very intresting and usefull and also you will learn how to control all of these abilities,skills and be the best of the best of you.But be carefull.Dangers are at all paces you make…so be aware.Now let us enjoy the rest of the evening.I must say you look ravishing in this dress.I could surely bite you." and he smiles at me and looks like he was almost this close in biting me.

"Oh!" I said blushing."Thank you.I'm not used in being so elegant…and this dress is marvelous and it must have cost you a fortune…and all of this…this place is amazing…and these high-heels fit me like a glove…I think this night is getting better and better.Of course I am anxious to start my training and to learn new things from you because you are an elder and you know a lot of things and secrets…and thank you again for allowing me to roam freely through the house.And I would have to ask you…can I have an piano? I mean I want to buy a piano…and I want to know if you would be allright with that.."

"A piano?I already have one…in the music room and you are free to play whenever you want…hmmm..you are very cultured…"

"Well not really.I just love to play the piano,and study and read books and do simple things."

"Hmmm.That's good.Well time goes by very quickly I see and it is almost sunrise so you should go and get some rest and we will talk the rest tomorrow night.Good night."

"Yes.Sure.Good-night!" I kinda shouted because he was moving fast…Was he floating or something?Oh well.To bed now.Tomorrow is a big day.

Chapter 10:What the…..?

Finally now I could get some sleep.Just undressed my self in a hurry to get in bed and there I was away in the land of dreams……but unfortunately my night was disturbed by another madness in my head…..sometimes these kind of dreams…is someone telling me something?...Like a premonition?..Or is it just my mind?....This night was a new more scary dream that I was frightened to death of it…and now to be serious….Who wouldn't be?

"I cannot see anything.Hey!You!Come here!Where are you going..????Come back???Who are you?Do I know you….What..?What the…..?....No…Stop it… You're killing him…stop doing that..No..Where is…?"

"Noooooo.Stop it…stop it…go away…GO AWAY!!!!JUST LEAVE ME ALONE….WHO ARE YOU TORMENTING ME?WHO ARE YOU?WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?"

"Justy?Are you allright?Why are you screaming?Please open the door and let me in." Karumi said as he was knocking very hard at my bedroom door.

I jumped out of the bed right into Karumi's arms.

"Karumi…I'm so glad to see you…she was here….I saw her…she was just hurting him and I tried to stop her and…"

"Justy who were you trying to stop?There's no one here!"

"No you do not understand.In my dream I had a dream…it was soo horrible" I said to him with tears in my eyes.

"Can you tell me what it was about?Or..?" asked Karumi.

"I was in a very dark room and I couldn't see anything and after that I hit something very hard and felt on the floor and as I was getting myself up I saw a little light and a shadow and I shouted and I started to follow that shadow.I followed that shadow in a room with three unicorn heads that were bleeding in some big cups on the floor and I followed it through another room were it stopped.I asked it if it was allright…and when it turned I noticed that it was a woman in a very dark robe but I couldn't see her face.She was holding a baby in her arms and she reached out the baby but when I wanted to hold it the baby let out a horrifying scream that would scare even the dead and started to bleed…and that blood was dripping from him until nothing remained…and that wretched woman started diabolically laughing at me…in my face and she grabbed the baby's cloth and tried o wrap it around my waist …but I pulled myself from her grasp and ran from her but I fell into blood and I was trying to reach out but something was pulling me down and I really felt like I was drowning and suffocating and then I woke up still crying" and gasping I told Karumi without breathing.

He looked at me closely,with his dark eyes,he studied my face,my expressions,the way I was shaking my soul out of my heart,the way I told him my horrific dream without even breathing.

"Well that is quite shaking…Hmmm…why don't you join me?Come and stay in my room for a while until you calm down…and if you will fall asleep I will take you to bed….Hmmm…Akado bring the young lady a cup of fresh blood…Common.Let us go now."

He took my hand,and in that moment I felt that my unbeating heart was melting and…I think I'm in love…but how can it be?Do vampires love?Aren't they cruel and mean?.

As I was walking besides him all kinds of questions were popping into my mind….and I was getting confused..But still,I was hoping that I could get some rest and get this wretched dream out of my head.

I lay on the bed very quietly as Karumi handed me the cup of blood.Obviously I threw the cup away because it reminded me of the nightmare….I know I was rude but I was to scared to think straight.

"Oh my.Hmmm.I'm such…I am very sorry…I had done that without realizing and.."

"No.Stop.Please change the subject."

"You really should get some rest.You are very disturbed."

"Yes you are right…but not until…" and I pulled out a little cigar and smoked it like it was air."Now I can go to sleep.Good night and thank you"

"Yeah sure…sleep." he said grabing my face in his hands and kissing me on the forehead.He slowly went to the door closing it gently behind him like he didn't wanted to disturb me.

I stood there in silence thinking at the kiss he gave me.DId he loved me?Or was it just a little sign of affection?I closed my eyes and hardly tried to think at something beautiful.
