Ok, well, my life is
not that simple. I suppose I should start by telling you a bit
about myself…my name is Adriana, but everyone calls me Adri, and
I'm sixteen. I have somewhat curly black hair that falls to my
mid-back, and I will admit, I am on the shorter side. I'm only
5'6 and compared to a lot of people in town, that's pretty short.
My eyes are a bright, almost translucent color. They pretty much
hypnotize anybody who happens to look directly into them. I am
extremely pale, and my skin is icy. My body is perfect, and every
guy wants to get into my pants…(like I'd ever let them…uh,
So…do you get it yet?
Werewolf! NO! Unicorn! No. Fish! What the hell?… Yes, I'm a
vampire. I was bit a year ago, and moved to this small town where
there is barley ever any sun. Ok, yes, when the sun hits me, I
will burst into flames….beep, beep! Wrong-o buddy-o! That is just
a myth, really the sun simply makes me glow, I pretty much shoot
rainbows in every direction, making me look like I attacked a
poor, innocent group of joyful leprechauns.
Anyways, when I was
bit, it wasn't like the normal vampire attack. My best friend,
Daniela, and I were simply enjoying ourselves at the mall one
night, shopping like normal teens, and scavenging for hot men
like normal teenage girls…well, like some of them.
It was later, maybe
around nine-thirty, and at night, that's when the vampires hunt.
Yes, we can go into the sun, but, it will blow our cover, we
can't have these humans running around like maniacs attempting to
stab wooden stakes into our chests, yeah, it doesn't work. Not to
mention, we have night vision, therefore, we can see the prey,
but they can't see us. Like we'd need all these amazing
superpowers though, the super speed, strength, hearing, like we
need them! We all have one weapon. We are extremely gorgeous. Any
person who sees us immediately notices it, and they would do
anything to be near you. Our voices are like bells, and we walk
so gracefully, (good thing, before becoming a vampire, I was a
total klutz). Everything about us would make you stare, and draw
you right into our trap.
Anywhoo, Daniela and
I had finished our shopping, when we went out to the parking lot.
Since it was late, and the mall closes at ten, the parking lot
was practically deserted. We were putting our bags in the trunk,
and when we turned around, there were four guys standing behind
us. Each had black, hooded cloaks on, and we're extremely
gorgeous from what we could see. One in the front removed his
hood, revealing his translucent eyes, and pale skin. He was
absolutely gorgeous and looked about my age. He spoke quietly to
two of the other boys standing beside him. They both darted off
with extreme speed at his order. He nodded to the other boy, who
then removed his hood. Then, the one who seemed to be in charge
"Now, this will hurt
much less if you stay still." With that, the one attacked Daniela
and then the main one came straight for me. He pierced his fangs
into my neck, causing me to scream out in pain.
He would have drained
me then, but something stopped them both. They left us lying on
the ground, and darted off into the distance. Then, I just
I don't know how long
Daniela and I had to stay on that hard ground before being
We woke up lying next
to each other, and a man standing between us. He had the same
eyes, and I immediately noticed. I screamed, and attempted to
back away. He explained to Daniela and me what we had become. We
were both shocked, and terrified, though I must admit; I felt
more comfort in knowing that I wasn't alone. The man explained
also, that drinking the blood of humans was illegal. We were to
live off animals. Then he released us, promising he'd be there
for us no matter what.
So, who, you may ask,
attacked us if it was illegal? That would be a gang of vampires
that are stretched across the U.S. They live off nothing but the
blood of humans, for it tastes much better than the animal's
blood. They are led by an old vampire, who has been around for
nearly four centuries. I can't believe no other vampire or
vampire hunter has killed him yet. That no
When I returned to my
home after that, my parents were extremely happy yet quite angry.
Seriously, my mom was angrier than she was when she got her
monthly gift! Ha, I don't get mine anymore! The joys of death! Of
course, I couldn't tell them the real reason I went missing for
two days. I had to make up some fake story about running of to
Hollywood with Daniela, hoping to meet the actors from Harry
Potter…for some reason, they bought it. I knew for a fact that my
parents would notice my eyes when the whole lecture fit wore off,
and I knew that I needed to get out of there. Of course, I didn't
want to leave my family, but I had to. If I didn't, they were in
more danger than they ever had been, and so was my little sister
Macy. She was only 13 when this happened, I couldn't allow
anything to happen to her.
And, Marcus, the
vampire that saved Daniela and I, told us exactly what would
happen. If we stayed with our parents, the vampire council would
come down and kill them. I couldn't let that happen. They also
would kill any of our closest friends. We were allowed to keep
one person; they knew that we would need someone to go to.
Daniela had a broken family, her father wanted nothing to do with
her, and her mother was dying of cancer. Not to mention, she had
no younger siblings, therefore, she looked to Macy like a little
sister. We kept her, explaining to her what we were and how it
had happened. She was the only one allowed to know.
We fled our hometown,
and moved here to the state of Pennsylvania.
"Adri, I'm starving!"
My little sister Macy yelled to me from the kitchen. She had
turned fourteen since last year when Daniela and I were bit. She
was still human; I refused to change her at such a young age. I
promised her I would change her when she was
I always forgot to
make her food, I didn't need it!
sorry!" I ran down to the kitchen. We lived in a huge three
bedroom house. It was frikin amazing! "Wow, it's not that easy to
remember when Daniela and I don't eat that repulsive stuff." I
said, pulling a frozen pizza from the freezer and throwing it in
"Well, you could
"No, Macy! I told
you, I will, but right now you are way to young. You have to be
fifteen to be changed anyways; do you want me ripped to pieces?"
She sighed, and sat down at the counter.
"I don't get why they
have all these stupid rules! I just want to be a
"They have the rules
because anyone under the age of fifteen has gone completely
insane and had to be destroyed." I turned to her, and sat down by
her. "It's not like I'm lying. I have to change you. Have to! If
I don't then the council will kill both of us, and
"What about me?"
Daniela asked, walking; no scratch that, gliding into the room.
She was tall, about 5'9, and had straight blonde hair a little
past her shoulders. She had the same pale, icy, skin and the
translucent eyes. She planned on becoming the school's star
volleyball player and I planned on being the school's star
dancer! Well, it won't be that hard, we're smexy vampires
"Nothing about you,
Macy is complaining about wanting to be a vampire again." I
replied, glaring at Macy. She flinched, not out of fear, but as
pure human instinct. It was funny!
So, when we moved
into the town last year, we didn't join into the school because
we needed to learn to control ourselves. Macy didn't join either
so that she wouldn't have to make up some story as to why Daniela
and I hadn't joined into the school yet.
Well, guess what??!!
We start school tomorrow! I might be able to avoid the urge to
attack and kill every single innocent human in that room, but I'm
not too sure.
