Chapter 11:Bittersweet
'What is this?A big cat?What is….?" I looked then very closely,sleepy realizing that it was just Bittersweet,my cat.As I woke up she was licking my face with her little tongue...and then Crystal showed up.
"Uhh and Miss Sleepy Head is awake finally…Bittersweet missed you,so I brought her in to see you.Try to pay her some more attention than you do…because she likes you more…and in a very strange,peculiar way…she knows you found her…honestly you should take more serious care of you pet Justy."
"Meowwwww" said my little fur ball as I was looking at her….in her little green eyes….fluffy paws and soft fur...Hmmm Crystal did raised her well as I can see.
"Aha.Sure leave her with me because I think Karumi won't mind me keeping my little lucky pet."
"No.That is not a problem at all"said Karumi gently looking at Bittersweet.As a matter of fact I was quite expecting her..you see every vampire needs a guide…a soul that would tell him or her what is it right and wrong…well that you will discover later…for now I give you my little Bittersweet this."
And Karumi puts a little shiny necklace around her neck.It was a quarter moon with a cat like figure in it.
"Don't worry.With this she will be protected and protect you as well.Now I must attend to my work.Goodbye Crystal.Take care…and you little missy,I will see you downstairs later this evening."
"Yes sir,sargeant sir." and me and Crystal started laughing.
"Hes cute…I mean in a vampiric way...you know when you see his little fangs coming out and…"said Crystal blushing.
"Crystal I got the point.Now I must get ready because 'Sir' is waiting for me in the lobby.HA-HA-HA." I laughed loudly as I was walking Crystal to the door.
"Now to see if Karumi is ready to show me something more important than how to catch flies with your bare hands." I was saying to myself as walking down to the basement…well "downstairs"as he was calling the practice room.
"Ahhh.Here you are."and hands me a Katana."This will be you friend,your soul and you killing instrument.But first I have to tell youto be carefull:You might cut youself.HA-HA-HA."
"Yeah right…now if you don't mind Karumi I "ould like to start with the thing Bathory sent me here for...you know the part where I practice until my brains fall out and..."
"Patience.I know why you are here.This way.'
And in front of us a door opens and a passage is revealed.That passage led to a place into the forest that was arranged for practice.It was surrounded by trees and it had lots of space.
"Ohh and Bittersweet will watch you.Now Let's begin.You hold your sword like this and hit like this and…"
As Karumi was explaining to me all these new things I kind of felt the energy and the strength of my sword,the power,I was understanding it's origin and I felt very proud to have such a powerful weapon beside me.I learned a few beginner tips and movements and Karumi said that he will show me more tomorrow.I was so excited that I wanted to practice a little more and I asked him if I could stay a little more and practice.he agreed but warned me that it was almost sunrise so I must not stay long outside in open air.
I just stayed a bit longer so I could master a bit my new moves and then went into the house.All that trainment was very exhausting and I needed something to eat.Honestly I could eat a hole cow if you had to put it like that,but I just satisfied my hunger with some fresh blood…I think it was a bird,but I couldn't tell what bird was it…but I was full.
Come on Bittersweet it's time for us to go into the darkness again.By the way did you liked my new moves?I think their awesome,and my new weapon…I wonder what weapon and what will I will learn in Russia…I hope Prince Vladimir is as hot and cute as Karumi,although I wouldn't like leaving here,I like Karumi and the place and the city.Oh well I must do what I must do..and now sleep.Night Bittersweet.
"Meow."I hear from her and sits peacefully in her little bed.
Chapter 12:Let me out of here!!!
Well another day began in the big house of Karumi.Another day trapped here….sooo boring…really I should be going out..but nooo…you stay here because you are a vampire and if people see you they might freak out….sooo…
"I can see that you are unsatisfied that you are in the house..well tonight we are going out…you decide what you want to do." said Karumi relaxed. "I don't read your thoughts…I just guessed." he said smiling at me.
'"Karumi?"
"What is it?"
"SHOPPING." I shouted like a total nut person and rushed through the door in his luxurious,spacious limousine.
"To the mall,please." I said anxiously to the driver.
"Not without me you don't.I don't see you not getting into trouble,so I'm coming,to.."
"Sure.But if you tell me what clothes to buy…I will have to kick you." I said smiling at him.
"Fine.To the mall then." he said to the driver as he turned and gave me a little smirk.
"Yes master."
And we were off to the mall.Well it was kind of a long road…and Karumi told me about the other elders,how can I focalize my power into my weapon and that later I will have a very big surprise and that I will face a lot of dangers in my journey.As he was talking,again I felt like I'm falling in love with him…my heart was beating…at least that's what I thought it was…anyway it didn't matter because when we got to the mall…I got lost into the price tags and all the pretty clothes and shoes and cat food.For Bittersweet of course,I'm on a blood diet.HA-HA-HA.
On our way home I told Karumi that I was feeling this strange presence and that dreadful dream that I had some nights ago…and I had the feeling something worse is going to happen…maybe not tonight.
Well,home,preparations for dinner...well one last look in the mirror:Perfect.I was dressed in a very modern…and transparent night gown..but not that long..and hard make-up on and my usual red lips.
"I'm rea….Oh my….Wow.." that was all that came out from my mouth as I was looking at him like I was obsessed with him because there wasn't anything you wouldn't like…that well shaped body in that suit…with his shirt unbuttoned at the top and hair all messy…and Uffff!!!! Those pants fit him like a glove and….
"Justy are you all right?You seem very concentrated on something.I am ready so shall we go before we miss our restaurant reserations?"
"Yeah." I said almost whispering and followed him to the door and he was opening it.Why was he such a gentleman?I mean wasn't he supposed to be a crueless hunter after all?Like all of the vampires?Those were just questions unanswered.
The night was very delightful,full of lights,fun and physical attraction,at least from my point of view,a little teddy bear that he bought me and other stuff.But unfortunately it was time to go home and start practice.Not that I minded practicing,but the night was so magical that I didn't wanted to end.So we got home and prepared for practice.
Bittersweet was waiting for me,for a while and she started meowing quite loud because she was very hungry and wanted food.After she had her dinner we headed out into the forest.
Chapter 13:My nightmares came true
"Haaaaa!!!!!"
"Nice.Now try and concentrate your hole power as if you are trying to cut me from top to bottom."
"Do you feel that?" I said as I was looking at a pitch black spot in the forest.
"Excuse me? said Karumi like woken up from a dream."No.What to feel?"
"It feels like a stampede but more intense and ..."
"Justy look out!!" said Karumi as he pushed me out of the way of the thing that tried to attack me ."Justy…..run…just run….I can't…"
But before he could finish he was smacked down and dragged away by some beast that was the size of a ten floor building…I couldn't see the beast too well to describe it in detail but I knew I had to help him.
What should I do?I must hurry before that thing kills Karumi…I mean then he will be dead…for real.
"Meow…"
"Not now Bittersweet can't you see I'm trying to help him?" but for my surprise Bittersweet jumped in front of me and began to transform in something else.Her tail was growing and splited in two,her paws were gigantic and the rest of her body and she had a strange glow around her.Maybe from the necklace?
"Come my mistress.Let us save Karumi.No time to think" said Bittersweet.
I was almost on the point of fainting…but I gathered all my strength and went for the beast.
"How can this…I mean you can talk?Is it real?I think I'm just dreaming…or maybe going insane…or maybe that meat from the restaurant was rotten.."
"No mistress.You will get your answeres soon.But for now let us concentrate on helping Master."
"You are right." I said with a murmured voice,as Bittersweet was following the trail left by the beast.
As we were heading far and far into the forest,we finally found that thing by a pond and Karumi near him.
"He's not moving." said as I was this close in crying.
"You go and take him and I will fight the beast." said Bittersweet as she was fighting that thing.
In an glimpse of an eye I took Karumi away from there and returning home.
Fortunately for us when we got home everything was prepared to take Karumi somewhere where he can receive proper medical attention.He was taken into a place where they wouldn't let me go.

"You stay here.Not allowed." told me one of his friends.

I was so sad and worried and finally broke like into a million pieces and started to cry.Little blood drops where dripping from my eyes on the white carpet,making it look like a murder scene...but I didn't care...then from a sudden I heard a scream from outside and in my mind was only one word:Bittersweet! I ran as fast as I could below the house passages in the basement to find Bittersweet back to her original self with a piece of furin her mouth.I assumed that fur was from the beast she fought.

"So are you going to tell me what happened?"

"Meowww,meoww,meow,meoww." she started "telling" me.

"I do not understand...So you can only talk when you are in the gigant form right?" I asked my cat.

"Meow."said shortly Bittersweet looking very sad that she couldn't tell me with words what happened.

Then from all the sudden I started to have a terrible headache and like caught in a trance I was listening to the voices that I was hearing...I didn't knew where they where coming from but I was hearing them in my head as if those persons were near to me.

"Don't leave me Justy...save...me"

That was Karumi..he needs me..I have to find him.wherever he might be.."Bittersweet get ready to track down Karumi...we must help him..He needs us" I said to Bittersweet vey worried and sad.

Some hours later we were in a little clearance in the forest at the edge of the town.Bittersweet stopped and started meowing.

"Bitter stop it...someone might hear us" I said as I wanted to walked forward but bumped into something.

"What the...?What is this...?"I was saying to myself as I was feeling this strange transparent wall that was in front of me.As I was studying this strange thing large door strated to open in front of me and Bittersweet and a little old lady appeared in front of us."

"We were expecting you.Karumi told us you will come.Please come in.Ohh!!What a cute little fellow...." and the little old lady picks up Bittersweet and take a close look at her.

In the next second I thought she will drop my precious kitten,because her face turned white and her cheecks pink as she was sighing in wonder.Then she looked very closely at Bittersweet's necklace and went on like: "Ohh my ,ohh my!",but no other word she said just lead us to the bedroom where Karumi was.I was a bit shocked because I didn't knew what else to say or do,because I didn't knew what this was about and why did the little old lady still sighed.But the moment I entered the room and saw Karumi it was like all my worries and questions dissapeared like through magic.Unfortunately Karumi wasn't able to speak,but he was looking at me very kindly and sweet and I knew he was reliefed to have me there.

Chapter 14:Bakeneko

I stood beside him until he turned his head and looked closely at Bittersweet.He started smiling in content then looked at the old lady that was sitting behind me.She nodded her head and took me away,leaving Bittersweet and Karumi together.I was a bit confused because she took me away from Karumi.What if he needed something? What if he needed me.Although I was two rooms away I was still a bit nervous,then with an revolting frown I opened my mouth and said to the old lady:

"You almost dropped Bittersweet.You could've hurt my little kitten.Why did you took me away…Like what is happening here?Where am I ?What is this place?Is Karumi going to be ok?Is…." but before I could finish the old woman shushed me and told me every last detail of what I wanted to know.

"First of all,here,my dear is a refuge from mankind.That is why you hit that invisible wall when your Bakeneko brought you here.Secondly Karumi is going to be just fine,the only thing is that he lost a lot amount of blood,although unusual for a vampire,but true.Here is a like a hospital,but for vampires.All the "people" here in this house are vampires.We are just like humans.We study our body,invent cures,treat patients and offer them support.We have problems just like humans.We feel,we love,we suffer but our luck is that these are just passing-by feelings.They do not last long,but sometimes they do.That depends.We are almost humans…we are dead,but breathing,we feel hunger,pain,just like them…but we are undead.This is a disease…but when you are not alone living forever is not a curse anymore."

And to answer your main question or to confirm some of your ideas:Yes your cat is a Bakeneko." said the old lady very calmy and very kindly to me.

I stood a second and shrouded in wonder I opened my mouth and said: "What?What is that?I mean I saw her transform and I realized that it wasn't a dream the moment Karumi was hurt…and that amulet he gave her…and…" again she interrupted me.

"Well my dear,here in Japan we have a very rich folklore and lots of stories.I was about to drop Bittersweet because I have never seen her so powerfull before." said the old lady staring at the room Karumi and Bittersweet were in like she didn't wanted someone to hear,but everyone except me knew…at least I thought they knew.And in my head something poped.

"What do you mean you have never seen her so powerfull?She is a special kitten of course,but she was abandoned I think.I mean I found her in the street,scared and lonely." I said this time so very confused.

"Yes.I know.But she was meant for you to be found by you.You see Bittersweet,as you call her now,is in our generation for centuries.Karumi had her,Elisabeth Bathory had her,even Prince Vladimir and many vampires before you and them." she said as she took me into the large hall that had portraits on them with Bittersweet and the vampires she helped and protected.

"Here in Japan,Bakeneko is a monster-cat,a cat with supernatural abilities .A cat may become a Bakeneko in many ways like:it may reach a certain age, be kept for a certain number of years, grow to a certain size, or be allowed to keep a long tail. In the last case, the tail forks in two.Here Bittersweet became a Bakeneko because she is very old and kept in this "family" for many generations.There are many legends about the powers of the monster-cat.It is said that it will haunt the house it lives in,it eats poison etc,but here is a good example of a Bakeneko.I will not tell you her abilities.I want to let you discover Bittersweet's secrets.As you might know until now she can speak and transform into this.Also she can heal and read your thoughts.But enough,you will see." and the lady just disappeared from my sight.

I went back to Karumi that was petting Bittersweet.He looked at me very carefully as he was trying to read my mind and because he could not speak,I started telling him what I had found out.

"So this was all.How stupid I am'I said as I slapped my forehead.'I forget to ask the old lady what was with the monster that attacked you.I mean what was it?" I said looking at him and Bittersweet.

Karumi looked at me in surprise giving me a little shoulder raise then looked at the door.I understood his message so I excused myself.But before I got to the other side of the door,I came back and gave Karumi a little kiss on his cheecks.He looked at me amazed,blushing,and smiled.Then I took my little kitten off his lap and left his room.

I was wondering what should I do next.I was alone and a bit worried so I took the liberty to go a little sight seeing before going back to the house.I stepped out and left the invisible wall behind me and went out into the city lights.

Chapter 15:An old friend.

I was so amazed by the dazzling light of the commercial panels outside on the buildings,The smell of blood surrounded me but thank goodness Karumi tought me how to abstain my self from attacking people while on the street.I saw lots of people,laughing,girls giggling,boys playing games.I saw little boutiques,shops and mostly lights….lots and lots of lights.

Of course I was holding Bittersweet so she wouldn't get lost,but if she did,she would've cam back to me I'm sure.Anyway my little walk was so beautiful and full of lights and dazzle and wonder.

My eyes were hurting a bit from all of those lights,but I was all right.Contented I might say.But not happy,because Karumi was there and I was here,not alone but I just realized I missed him so much.

As my thoughts fluttered in my head, I stood quiet,thinking.As I was walking home,on our way home Bittersweet fell asleep.She was sleeping like a baby…kitten that is.I didn't went throught the forest to get home,just took the other way around.

Still wondering I heard a choir singing.And a very familiar voice sounded in my head.And I said to myself:

"No.Can this be him…after all this time?I missed him so much."

For one second I though my heart was beating again as I was heading towards the church on my left.It was far,but thanks to my vampire ability:super hearing I was able to detect his voice.I was so happy.In my head were rolling images from my childhood,my happy times,the playground in front of my home,my mom,my dad and all of my friends, especially him.My true friend that stood besides me even in my darkest hours…my madness,happiness,the moment I wanted to kill myself and suffered he was there…he was always there for me…Yes,Alan,my confident,my friend,my brother.Well he wasn't really my brother…you know born from my parents…but we were very close one to each other and grew togheter and because of this I considered him-my brother.

I thought my heart was going to rip its self into little tiny pieces as I started walking faster and faster.I haven't noticed that Bittersweet woke up.When she saw the church,she became so agitated and she was goading me to turn away,but I walked closer and closer without paying any attention.

After some time I found my self into the church.It was empty because it was night time,but the choir was rehearsing for something I think.Then I climbed on the wall and started looking for him.Then I spotted him,but I waited him to be alone.He then left the choir and went into his little room to change.Then I made my move.Climbing down from the wall,I followed him into his room ,knocked and entered.He was standing with his back at me and I just jumped and hugged him.

"ALAN….ohhh my goshhh…It's so nice to see you….I thought I will never see you again…How's Lidia and Ady and Alayna….how are they….how is mom and dad…even my stupid brother…how are they…I missed you so much!!!" I started shouting and talking like a mad man to him as I let him go from my big hug.

He slowly turned to me.He looked at me so shocked and his mouth opened a bit.For a few good minutes he stood like this.I thought that it was stupid to surprise him like this and wanted to wake him up from the dream,but he pushed away my hand very hard, and pulled-up a cross.I looked very shocked at him then started laughing.

"Common.You don't fool me silly.Now put that cross down and let's talked.Your still funny.I missed you so much!" I said very enthusiastic,but he looked straight into my eyes,and looked furiously at me.

"I cast you out, unclean spirit, along with every Satanic power of the enemy, every specter from hell, and all your fell companions; in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Begone and stay far from this .." he started saying but didn't stopped even though I started speaking.

"Alan it's me….Justy…Don't you remember me?We used to play togheter brother,we made flower crowns a-and ate seeds in the park,we even smoked pot once in my back yard…don't you remember?"

"You are not her.Justy is dead.You are a demon possessing her mind,body and soul…so with the Holy Power invested in me I cast you out Demon." he continued.

"Listen!" I said to him starting to get angry. "I do not need an exorcism I just need my friend…don't you see…I just need…" but before I could say anything else the others came and grabbed me.

I tried so hard to fight them…but they were too many.They put me down and tied me up with chains.I was screaming my lungs out.Cursing them and begging Alan to release me…or at least to help me….but he refused….In that moment I was so hurt and started crying.Tears of blood were running down my checks, as the other Servants of God were tying me up to a column of the curch.

"Alan please.Unchain me.Don't you see it's me.Why won't you believe me?Let me go!!!" I was screaming as they were showing me their little crosses.

"Be quiet servant of Satan.You shall no longer impure this body…you demon…"

The others looked a bit puzzled at my tears and gathered up.They saw my pointy fangs as I was roaring at them.I heard that they where calling a higher priest to take control of the situation and untill then they will exorcise me and splash me with Holy Water.

Great Justy.Now you arein a real mess,Why didn't I listened to Bittersweet when she mewoed…now it's too late…I mean what tortures will they think off? I was saying in my mind.I was getting angry…but those chains were too heavy and strong to break…so I had to wait.

After long hours of listening to those bambling words of theirs…that obviously had no effect on me,and the long Holy Water "shower" that was supposed to burn me,the one they havebeen expecting came.When I saw him I started shouting:

"Let me go you fool.Let me go you stupid mortals.Look at me.I look like Hell.I'm wet and dirty…and I'm so hungry…that when I will break these chains..I will eat you and suck all of your blood..EVERY LAST DROP!!!" but my struggle was in vain because when the big hot shot came they haven't even glance for a second at me…they just gathered up and talked.

After a few minutes the big hot shot with his big hat turned to me and said:

"I know what you are.And you are right.You do not need and exorcism."he said.

"Finally…so what are you waiting for…you heard the man…now let me go.." I said calmly.

"Let you go?Let you go?The best discovery in centuries…a VAMPIRE,the majestic yet goulish creature of the night…let you go?No my lost soul of Satan.You will be our lab rat.We will study you…we will make our experiments on you.Don't worry you will be just fine." he said devilishly smiling at me,as he was the Demon,not I.

For the first time in my life I started bambling a prayer hoping that maybe help will be here soon.

Chapter 16:Chained

As I was trying desperately to figure out a way to escape these stupid religious fools,they took me away into a room with three unicorn heads.Was this deja-vu? I had a dream about bleeding unicorns some time ago,but this...this was insane...Was this even religious? Wasn't this a satanic practice to sacrifice other animals...and wait..Unicorns? Where the hell did they found unicorns? I was so amazed and completely whiped out that I didn't even realised the "BigBoss" was about to disect me with a bistoury.I goggled my eyes and started to babble:

"Wh-What are you going to do with that?" I said looking scared at him.

"Haven't I told you little vampire? We are going to cut you and study you." he said smiling at me.

Why the Hell was he smiling..I was about this close in being Crispy Fried Vampire Meat...if I didn't found a solution.But how can I find a solution when my mind refuses to think and panics in limit moments? How? Then a brilliant stalling idea came out of my mind.

"You stupid human.If you cut me I won't die..I'm already dead.No matter how many times you hurt me I regenerate very fast.I do not think that this is a very good way to kill me." I grinded superiorly at them.

"Hmm...you have a point there vampire.Well the only method we have left if to put a stake through your heart." and the old priest grabs a stake.

"Ahem." coughs one of them.

"Yes my child?" turns the priest at the crowd and for my astonishment Alan starts to speak.

"I do not think it is a good idea to kill her..if we kill her how can we study her reactions to hunger,disease and others...I know that the church doesn't much approve medicine,but let us face the facts,if we kill her it would be a loss for the world." he said calmy to the others.

I was slapped in the face by an unknown force as my mouth was opened as I looked at Alan speaking.Since I got here this was the greatest thing that I had heard...well wasn't but at least it gave me some time to think at some posssible escape plans.

And again I was carried away,this time in a cell.Well I was alone but at least it was quiet.But the thing that I didn't know was that they were about to leave me there for a long time.

After a few days of starvation,I was a mere skeleton hanging from the chains they had chained my hands with.The things that I had felt in there I wish no one to feel,not even my worst enemies.First day I was good,fine I might say...althought I needed to go to the toilet but no one bothered to take me,so I made a little mess there. Even vampires go to the toilet you know and do stuff that humans do...only in books and stories,authors do not mention this futile aspect because they want to give the vampire a ferocious look and coolness in a way,but it is true vampires do go to the toilet.

Anyway,leaving the toilet matter...after that the hunger and the thirst came.The thought of it was destructive..the thirst was crushing and the hunger fierce.I could feel the sweet taste of blood in my mouth...the warm flow that came from it.But with this insatiable thirst came the pain.The pain that was squashing my mind and my body,the pain that burnt my throat like the fiery pits of Hell,the pain,the thirsts,the hunger that were contusing my last sense of awearness in me.

As I stood there,in the third night of incarceration,I saw a shadow..or in my mind I thought I saw something that looked like a shadow.After three days of torture I was asking my self,how come I am not dead by now.But it was real.In front of me stood a tall man.

"Don't worry.You will be just fine after I break these chains of yours.Don't worry.I will take you home" he said.

But the only word that truly ringed in my mind was home...and I didn't cared who was the one that saved me from there or where was this home he was talking about,I was glad that he was breaking me out of that wretched prison.

I think I blacked out or something because from that moment I haven't remembered not even a single thing that happened.

Chapter 17:Revival of the vampire

I slowly opened my eyes to see that in front of me sat Galahad and Elizabeth (Bathory in case someone forgot).All of the sudden when I opened my eyes everyone there started to ask me if I was all right or if I nedded something or if they could help me with something.

I slowly opened my mouth and let of a whiped out No.I just woke up and my memory was still a blur and my head and hole body was hurting.I just wanted a moment alone,but in my condition I couldn't speak to clear or too much.I was just shaking my head whenever they had something to say.

They let me rest for a bit and after a few hours someone came to see me.Yes! It was Karumi.I was so glad to see him,he was safe and sound and ready to to "roll". He looked better then ever.He had a blood-red shirt with black leather pants and some flip-flops...but besided that he looked so hot like the summer in July.Even though I was incapable of speaking or moving I just opened my mouth a bit and let a little Wow! slip through my lips.

He entered and made a slight move from his hand like telling someone to come in and someone did came in...I mean a few men bringing with them red roses and tulips and orchids and "planting" them in vases in my room.Then after the men left he sat next to me on the bed.He took my hand and kiss it...then he put it on his face.I was so lost in his gestures that even if I would have been able to talk I wouldn't because I was too amazed of his presence and the things that he made in that moment.

Still holding my hand,he raised his gaze on me and started talking.

"Are you all right love? I found out what happened.Please forgive me.I am so unworthy of you.I wasn't even able to protect you.It is all my fault that all of this happened to you my little dark soul.Would your little dark heart ever forgive me for the thing I have done...or I might say haven't done?" he said looking so worried at me and taking both of my hands and carresing his face with them and kissing each of them over and over again.

I was so dizzy and so amazed of all of this I couldn't even open my mouth anymore.I just stood and watch like a total vegetable as Karumi was holding my hands tight and begging for my forgivness.Have Igone mad? I mean no one in my entire life and after life have ever begged forgivness from me.My mind was totally blown out,I couldn't do nothing more than just watch and listen.

"Now I must leave you my love" he standed from next to me."I must go and discuss with the others,but I promise you I will be here as soon as I finish." and he bends kissing my forehead and my cheeks.

He stood a moment and looked at me.Of course I was blushing and I think I was hot enough to cook an egg.

"You are so fragile,so beautiful" then he puts his soft lips on mine." I will be back."

What did just happened? Was I dreaming?Was I drunk? Did Karumi just kissed me? Now I was completely blown away.I started smiling like a complete idiot and asking myself:was Karumi in love with me or was this just his way of reacting to shock? I knew from the moment he touched me I was in love...but I remember the old lady in the vampire hospital that told me that feelings don't last long because they don't define us vampires,but still why won't this feeling go away.In my torment of questions and the tiredness I felt asleep.

Alas I was woken by a strong discusion coming from the meeting room down stairs.I used my sense to latch on to the conversation there.

"No Karumi.This is inacceptable.Galahad brought her here almost dead...she was almost dead Karumi.Why? Because she came to visit you,because she isn't fully vampire and you know that and she has feelings." Elizabeth yelled very hard at Karumi.

"It know that it is my fault to,but I couldn't know that she was in danger...I was in the hospital for Hell's sake." said Karumi angry.

"No.It was everyone's fault:mine,yours,hers for going into the church.Why the hell haven't you told her not to go and interract with humans?It is very dangerous." said Galahad.

"No.She will go to Russia at Prince Vladimir.I had made my decision.You trained her well,but this was a big mistake Karumi...I'm sorry,but she has to go." said Bathory.

"Yes Karumi you clumsy twat..you almost killed her."

"Vladimir.You sure do are something somewhere.:"said Karumi raising his voice in anger.
