"I didn't know if it was dream or reality. With my eyes partially opened, I saw fangs. My sleepy mind didn't register anything; no fear, no alertness... The soothing warmth of love still covered me like a cosy blanket. Thus, I fell asleep beside the girl I love. And I know for a fact, she loves me too."

For most people, folk legends and fairy tales are mere fictions. For others, the legends of their forefathers are historical tales. What we don't realise is that folk legends usually carry some kind of truth to it. There is no wave without wind and there is no smoke without fi re. What does happen is that we exaggerate and mythify events to a point that they become too far fetched to be true.

What is unknown to us, we fear. What is di fferent from us, we reject. Whatever that is 'not completely human', we attempt to demonise. However, the truth is far from what we perceive. Others might live amongst us. Others who are slightly diff erent from us but are still 'human'. Or perhaps even more 'human' than us.

Those others might be able to live like us, work like us, rest like us, entertain like us, hate like us and love like us. It is only through discovery and mutual understanding, we fi nd how similar we actually are. Especially this word, 'love'. Love is a matter of souls. Transcendent beyond all boundaries of morality and rationality. This is the case for us. It is also the case for them.

My name is Andreas (Dre) Raimundez. I am of Hispanic origins though I barely speak any Spanish. My parents migrated from the elegant Spanish capital Madrid to the United States before I was born. They settled in a small (American standard) city named Ontario, east of Los Angeles, California. Unlike the famous Ontario in Canada, this Ontario is literally a remote civilisation in the middle of nowhere (surrounded by desert and mountains). Life is so slow in Ontario that sometimes I feel the city is just one big nursing home for retired folks. Till this date I still don't know why my parents decided to give up the modern and beautiful Madrid for this.

When I was eleven, my parents got divorced and my father moved back to Spain. My mother and I stayed in Ontario and continued our `American dream'. To be honest, although I don't fancy life in Ontario and usually blame it for giving me a boring childhood, I can't imagine myself going back to Spain. After all, I don't even speak fluent Spanish.

I left for college in Los Angeles when I just turned eighteen. Although I have visited other places before but I have never resided in a place other than the ever unchanging Ontario. Facing the exciting city in front of me, it was here I first met her. Unknown to me, my so far boring life was about to take an extremely sharp turn. Here begins my tale.
