A vampire girl forgets her human life when she is changed. Now the man she loved in her mortal life is on the look for her.

"Your eyes are gorgeous," The young man told me as he stared into my eyes. "Baby blue swirled together with light purple. So rare to find, only once in my life have I seen real eyes like yours". I smirked at his comment and noticed he looked around the age 22 which is 4 years old than I. He caresses my pale-white cheek bone and touches my long brown hair, then looks up at the stars. "So wild yet tamed," he whispered under his breath. Once more he stares into my eyes hypotized, so i though. He smiles then says aloud "Still so wild yet tamed... like always". I glared at him dazed wondering what he could possibly mean, when clearly I was pretty sure I just meet this man an hour ago. He just so happen to be here at the exact moment and time, by the same small lake as me. I followed his glance back up to the stars. "I know what you are Violet," He said as he watched a small, lost baby duck swim across the open water in front of us quacking for it's mother. I kept my attention on one star trying to comperhein why the name "Violet" sounded so familiar. After a moment of silence he looks over at me, but quickly stares back out at the lake when i don't look back, then says. "It's okay if you don't rememeber me...I didn't think you would". I study he's face of disappointment and gunt out a "What are you talking about?" He doesnt dare to flinch at my cruel tone, then says "Listen Violet. I have been looking for you for almost four years now," my eyes go cold for i was beginning to get frustrated at this man who claims he knows me. "Oh yeah. Then what am i then? Huh? If you know me oh so well". He smiles and touches my cheek bone once again. "It's simple, your skin is cold as ice, what else can you be than a vampire". I jump up real quick and some of the sand blows upward behind me. Then i look up at him watching me as i stare back, so i smile and throw my head back and let out a laugh. "You believe in that nonsense? I'm not a vampire. There's no such thing. It's just really cold out here". He gets up slowly and reaches his hands out for me. "Violet, you dont have to lie. I was there when it happen. You can't hide it from me.... They told me you wouldn't remember anyone from your mortal life but i was insisting i was going to try but as soon as you had changed you left without a warning," he traveled off a little at the end. "If you know what i am. Why are you here? When in a split second you could be dead. Do you have any clue how easy i can kill you with my bare hands". I paused for a minute looking him over and admitting he had some guts. He was a tall slim young man but even then you could clearly see the muscle through his shirt. He had almost haunting blue eyes along with brown hair to his chin that sorta covered his eyes."What is your name," i command. He grins but it doesn't show to his eyes "The name is Jasper," I froze when he said his name. I couldn't completely understand why but there was something about his name that caught my eye but i recovered quick and hope he didnt see. He didn't seem to notice though and he continues "And Does it look like it matters to me? I got nothing to lose. I rather die by you than anything else". I just stare at him , then i say " Oh so now im a thing. Why would you say such a thing. I dont even know who you are" . He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a razor . "I brought this just in case". I watched him, my eyes narrow and thinking oh great i found a crazy person. Next he puts it to his wrist and slides it slowly across, just enough to break skin and bleed , while he says " Well since it's clear you don't remember me and you most likely are never going to.... so like i said it don't matter I got nothing to lose. Im a lost cause now." As the blood drips down his arm, my head thrustes forward with my instincts, quenching my desirer, my thirst. I could smell the blood and feel it run through my veins as i drink. So addictive like a drug. I begin to slow down as memories come into place. I begin to remember all my mortal memories as if all it took for me to rememeber was the taste of his blood. I began to remember he was the one who always protect me, was always by my side and with every sip i can feel how he blames himself for what i am now. It was four years ago when i became this way. It was a friday night, we were both 18, and very much in love, i had my own apartment for my abusive father was changed into a vampire himself and killed my mother one year before. So Jasper had talked me into finally do something fun for myself so we had decided to walk to the club down my road. We lived in New York so there was clubs everywhere. I could see it threw his eyes, when he was talking to someone in front of us in the line something grabbed me and pulled me to alley when he turned around at the last minute he saw what was going on. He decks the man in the face as he's running away. Jasper picks me up and carries me back to my place. He lays me on the couch and is about to close the door when a dark stranger walks in. He tells Jasper what is happening to me, that im not going to die but as soon as i awake im not going to rememeber anything and that there is a good chance i will kill him. But Jasper insistes on staying by my side but when he close the door in front of the strangers face he turns around to find me jumping out of the window. Thats when Jasper started his journey to find me no matter what. As i still drink i can now see all the places he looked including Paris cause he knew i always said i like to visit there some day. And that is exactly where he found me, right at this moment. As im seeing this i snap out of it and stop draining his source of life. But when i look down i see it's much too late. I lay him down with his head on my lapwhilei tryto hold back the tears, wheni hearhis heart pulse once. I smile hoping i was wrong maybe it wasn't to late but that wasall it did, thump once more and die completely. I stay there till the sun came up and i sat and watch it rise for the first time in four years. I could feel me caughting on fire and although it burnt like Hell itself, i didn't care, as long as i made sure he had his last dying wish come true. He would always said when he die he wanted to be cremated so i was seeing to it. So farewell cruel, mean world i guess us immortals aren't so immortals after all.
