I never asked for this life. I never asked for every human that I walked by on the sidewalk to shrink back in
fear when they saw the power and strength that radiated from me. I didn’t ask for the vampires and shape shifters and witches to talk behind my back only to grow silent and respectful as I walked
by. I didn’t ask for my adopted parents to be wary of me when I walked through their door every month to check on them. I didn’t ask to turn hard towards emotion because of the years of lack of
love or have fits of anger because of the burrden I carried was sometimes too heavy. I didn’t ask to be half shape shifter half vampire, a mutt. I didn’t ask for any of it.
But it didn’t matter if I didn’t want it because I was stuck with it. I was lucky enough that Nashe, the gentle
and wise goddess of prophecy had taken me under her wing when I had been just a child and had given me a future to look forward to, one where I would play a great deal in protecting a girl
destined to save the world.
I had worked hard to reach that prophecy my entire life. I trained long and hard every morning, working on
getting quicker, stronger, and braver. I learned to shoot a bow and arrow and how to use a bokken, a wooden Japenesse sword, and how to make them. I learned to control my thirst for blood and I
leanred how to shape shift into that of a snow white lioness. I learned to focus my mind, so I could find my power, one that let me see if the person I was protecting was in danger or not. I
never got a good glimpse of her or where she was. I only knew from the time I was sixteen that the girl I was destined to protect was a one with long golden hair and electric blue eyes. A girl
that was the Daughter of Adam and Eve, a human. A girl blessed by Nashe. A girl who when she would speak to the water, it would listen. A girl who saw things that no one else dreamed of. A
It was my destiny to protect her, so that she could gather the other four to defeat the Darkness. If she died,
then there was no hope.
I had to protect her, at all cost. But could I do it?
I didn’t know.
But I was going to die trying.
