Chapter 1

After all those years I still remember the day I swapped the sun for the moon, the clouds for the stars, the day for the night, mortality for immortality and death for eternal life and on that day I became a vampire. A life without an end has no meaning. A person without family and friends has no meaning. I have no meaning. The day was the 19th of December 1840 I was 18 and was walking around the streets at night, there was no one around or at least that was what I thought. My father didn’t approve of my usual walks around the village at night; he said it was not safe. He explained the usual reasons why it was not safe but he always seemed to be hiding something. I never knew what. Out the corner of my eye I saw someone attacking someone else, I eventually came out of shock to scream and run, like any sane person would. That was when it turned bad, the attacker dropped the corpse of the man he was attacking and started to run towards me. He was extremely fast, it was inhuman. He tackled me and I assume I passed out, because I only remember wakening up on the cold ground of a crypt. The man was sitting in a coffin. ‘Is that any way to treat a lady’ I said and he jumped out the coffin and ran towards me. ‘Listen little girl you don’t know who your messing with’ ‘I wouldn’t talk to me like that my father is a lord and I think I know who I’m messing with; you killed that guy outside and when to kill me’ ‘So I murder someone, go to murder you and you still talk to me like that, think it through’ He was very grumpy and I thought he needed to chill out. ‘Good point so why didn’t you kill me’ ‘You want me to kill you then’ ‘No, I was just asking its called making conversation’ ‘Do you normally talk to murders?’ ‘No, now where am I cause if I don’t come home soon my father will send a lot of people to find me’ ‘You’re not going home’ ‘Want to bet?’ He lifted me up by my neck and threw me half why across the room. I rubbed my neck and he said ‘Don’t push it, or you see them chains over there you’ll be going in them’ I didn’t say anything. ‘Good we have an agreement you stay there whilst I sleep’ He was going to sleep how stupid was he the door was close I would escape with ease. He closed the coffin lid and I waited for a while then went towards the door and opened it and he got up out of the coffin I sprinted out the door and he didn’t follow then some sun came in through the door and hit him and he started smoking. He slammed the door and I ran back into town. When I got in to town a man walked up to me and said ‘Vanessa where have you been your father has been looking for you, you should go home immediately’ ‘I am and I really need to talk to my father’ I got home and my father shouted me. ‘Vanessa where have you been’ ‘I was walking then I saw a murder then he kidnapped me and I was in a crypt and he said I couldn’t go home and he when to sleep in a coffin and I escaped and the sun shone in and he started smoking’ ‘Vanessa you will be guarded at all times, you will not go out. Do you understand?’ ‘Yes I do’

Chapter 2

That night I was sleeping and I woke up and saw him, I screamed and the guards ran in and the man left. ‘Vanessa what is it?’ ‘I...I just saw someone in my room it...it was...him the person who kidnapped me’ I wasn’t going to lie to my father’s guards they would be able to tell if I was lying. What was he doing in here, how did he find me? Who was he? What was he? I woke up the next morning and I got dressed and my father called me. There were a lot of people in there who I had never seen before. ‘Dad who are these people’ ‘They are here to help you’ ‘You must answer our questions truthfully. Tell us ever bit of information you know’ One of the people said I a demanding tone. ‘First question who was he?’ ‘I don’t know and I don’t care’ ‘Vanessa! Tell them what you know!’ He had never spoken to me like that before. ‘I’m going, I can’t take this, the experience was traumatizing enough and I don’t need to relive it.’ I walked out and went to the town and into the tavern and a man walked up to me in there ‘What’s a young girl like you doing in here?’ ‘Leave me alone freak’ he walked away, but that wasn’t the last from him when I was leaving after it got dark, I was walking home and the man from the tavern came up to me and started pushing me, I fell over and then the man who had kidnapped me came over and started fighting with the person who had just attacked me. I couldn’t move or say anything it was like one of them had froze me. ‘You stay away from her Deago’ ‘Why should I Lucian?’ ‘Deago I am warning you, I’m a more powerful vampire than you’ Lucian ripped the head off Deago and I could move again. I stumbled to my feet and started to run but Lucian ran in front of me and took me to the crypt and tied me up. ‘So your name is Lucian, strange name’ ‘Quiet Vanessa’ ‘How do you know my name?’ ‘I have done my research on you Vanessa you’re the star of the town, everyone is talking about you being kidnapped’ ‘I told you that you wouldn’t get away with what you did’ ‘I’m still alive aren’t I, did you ever get news of the body’ He was right I didn’t hear about the body, but why? ‘I didn’t think so because there is a secret society of nobles who make sure the town doesn’t hear about us and your father is part of them’ ‘Secret society’ that would explain who them people were and why they were asking me question ‘what do they do apart from make sure the town doesn’t know about you’ ‘That is normally the last question I get asked, normally it’s what are you and why the town can’t know about you’ he said with laughter in his voice. ‘I want to know that to, so start explaining’ ‘Ok first the society tries to kill vampires’ ‘Vampires they don’t exist’ ‘On the contrary we do’ I remembered everything made sense he burned in sunlight because his skin was UV sensitive and he had super speed and strength. ‘Oh my God, you’re a vampire’ ‘I am’ ‘Well it’s been fun seeing you but I have to go, so untie me’ ‘Vanessa you can’t, you have a choice you can become a vampire or I can kill you’ Let me think this through I become a vampire and be hunted or I can die, not a choice I ever thought I would have to make.

Chapter 3 Well I would have to choose soon. ‘I don’t want to die, so make me a vampire’ ‘Are you sure, there is no cure for vampirism’ ‘I’m sure’ From that night and ever other night from then I have been a vampire, but that is not the end of my story there is more. I woke up in a coffin next to Lucian’s coffin feeling great and hungry. ‘Vanessa we need to talk’ ‘What about’ ‘You can’t stay here Vanessa for your first days as a vampire I will teach you and you can stay here but after that you have to go’ ‘I understand’ Where would I go I’m a newborn teenage vampire, but life must go on even If I was dead. ‘I don’t think I could go back home could I’ ‘No you can’t, you’re dead to them now. That doesn’t matter though because with time you will most likely join a coven. Enough about that I think you might be hungry, stay here I will find someone for you to eat’ ‘Thanks, but shouldn’t I learn this myself’ ‘Fine you can come’ We went and Lucian hid whilst I walked alone. Then a man walked up to me and put a knife to my throat and threatened to kill me. I swiftly turned and slammed him to the ground and bit him and drained the blood from his body. ‘Excellent Vanessa, but how do you get rid of the body, so it can’t be found’ ‘I burn it, and then the wind will blow the ashes away’ ‘Very good or you can just leave it the society will clean it up’ ‘Oh well I want to burn it’ ‘Ok’ We returned back to the crypt and went to sleep but I couldn’t It was at least 2 hours till sunrise so I went for a walk. I passed my house and inside was my dad, my little sister who was 5, my dad’s wife (who I hate) and their newborn baby son. They looked so happy like they didn’t care I was gone. The sun was starting to rise so I quickly ran back to the crypt and went to sleep. The next few days flew by and the thing Lucian taught me where amazing now I could hypnotize people, read their minds, shape shift, fly, do magic like make things move without touching them, but the time came when I had to leave Lucian. I set off into the night. I saw the place where my family had built a crypt for me which meant they thought I was dead but the coffin was nice so until I had enough money to move I stayed there. It wasn’t far away from my old house but it was privet enough. I gathered money of the people I killed and sometimes I would run into Lucian. He went from someone who tried to kill me to a teacher to a friend. I asked him to meet me at the tavern so I could say goodbye to him and then I went off to New Orleans, I rented a room on the sea-front.

Chapter 4

Years later in 1853 out of curiosity I went back to my home town my little sister would be 18 the same age I was when I became a vampire and my half-brother would be 13 and my father and his wife would be old. I was walking the streets like I did years before when I saw my old house in ruins I walked up to someone to ask what happened. ‘Hay what happened to that house’ I didn’t know who it was but they looked familiar. ‘It was my house and it burnt down last night it killed my father his wife and their son, I was at my sisters grave and I fell asleep and woke up this morning to find it burnt down’ I was talking to my sister and she looked so different and grown up. ‘I’m sorry that it killed your family’ ‘Don’t be I hated them they threw me out’ She was sleeping in my crypt so I had to rent a room but I couldn’t leave her to live in a crypt for the rest of her life or until she gets enough money to get a house. I left her and went to see Lucian. ‘Hello Lucian been a long time’ ‘Vanessa how long are you in town for, we should go get a drink’ ‘As appealing as that sounds I need to talk to you’ ‘Is it about your old house burning down and your whole family dyeing?’ ‘First no and second there not all dead my sister is still alive and I was hoping you could help her because I need to go soon I only came back for a night I’m leaving in a few hours’ ‘Fine but you have to come out for someone to eat’ ‘Deal’ We went out and got someone to eat and I had to go I kissed Lucian on the cheek and said goodbye and ran off into the night and rented a room. A few hours later I heard screams coming from my home town. I ran back to find a huge vampire attack. I walked through the streets seeing dead bodies and bodies struggling to survive. ‘Vanessa, you are dead and that means I am’ It was my old friend but we weren’t friends anymore because we had a disagreement before I died. ‘Marcy you’re not dead yet and I'm the un-dead I never die because I’m a vampire’ ‘Vanessa save me, you can you can save everyone, make everyone a vampire’ ‘No, now you need to die’ I stomped on her neck to break it and she died. I ran to Lucian and my sister was there with him but she was dead and Lucian was dying. I was crying because I should have stayed and I could have helped. ‘Lucian what happened’ ‘Vanessa, there was nothing you could do to stop it from happening you couldn’t have saved your sister or me. Vanessa stop crying, you have to leave I don’t want you to get killed now go’ ‘Tell me who did this; I’ll get revenge for you’ ‘Vanessa no, they are too powerful they are a bunch of vampires who want to gain control of the un-dead and then the world. Promise me you will stay away from them.’ ‘I promise I will never join them’ ‘You must stay away from them’ He died and I ran but not before I saw one of them I memorised there face and I would find them and kill them.

Chapter 5

Many more years past and the year was 1891 and I was in London, my powers where more developed and I was stronger, but I still remembered there face the one who I swore I would kill. I studied the myths about my kind there were some stories about my kind that where older than the bible, I travelled the world asking what people knew about vampires, I was asked why I would want to know and people told me stories about Eastern Europe and Arnold pole and many other myths. The one that entertained me the most was a description of a folk law vampire they said that vampires where red faced, had a stubbly beard, had long finger nails and bad breath. I asked a priest about vampires and he said that they drain the blood of the living to regain a resemblance of life and they are driven by one thing, the lust to survive. I started looking for vampire covens there where different types including Nomads, they move from city to city (always on the move is a good way to avoid being caught killing), there where vegetarian covens, they live of the blood of animals (I wouldn’t call it living but if you get caught on a boat for a while it’s a useful trick), there were many covens but none of them would kill off whole towns at once it was too risky. I had done everything I could think of but I could not find them, but that night they found me. I was walking looking for my dinner when I picked up on the scent of another vampire. Then behind me appeared many vampires surrounding me. They grabbed me and dragged me down in to tunnels that where under London. I realised that this was a coven of young vampires who had leader and no democracy they were out of control and needed to be stopped. ‘Who made all of you?’ ‘We made each other’ said one of the older girls in the coven. ‘Well where is the oldest vampire in the coven’ ‘I am’ a boy stepped forward from the shadows he was the one who I swore to kill because he was there when Lucian and my sister died. ‘Who made you?’ ‘Lucian he made me and I made them and they made each other’ Lucian he wouldn’t do that I knew him he wouldn’t make a coven like this he would control it and why would they kill him ‘How old are you.’ ‘2 years and you, you seem to controlled to be a newborn’ ‘I'm am 51 years old and I still look as young as you and I to was made by Lucian, but Lucian is dead and you killed him’ ‘I had to get my revenge he abandoned me, he bit me and left me but he didn’t kill me, he thought he did but he didn’t and he turned me, I found him and he wanted nothing to do with me’ ‘He wouldn’t do that, I knew him, he started off as someone who tried to kill me, to a teacher, to a friend and I know he wouldn’t abandon his own creation because he didn’t abandon me’ ‘Lucian turned many I found a lot of others who were created by him and he didn’t want anything to do with them, think back to when he made you did he want rid of you’ ‘Yes but he taught me the thing I needed to survive’ ‘The way to survive is quite simple kill humans’ ‘You killed a whole town’ ‘It quenches you thirst for a long time’ ‘So what will you do when you are hungry, kill another town, you know there are people who are trying to kill vampire they are called slayers their goal in life is to kill vampires and there are lycans who want vampire dead. You have to be careful in the world and I can’t let you go on how you are and I will put a stop to it’ ‘Are you going to kill us, there are a lot more of us and there I only one of you’ ‘A vampires power grows stronger with age and I older that all of you’ I jumped up and grabbed on to a bar on the roof and swung up and got out of the tunnel. I had to kill all of them, they where to dangerous.

Chapter 6

That night I fed on many humans as I had to be powerful to beat a coven of newborns. I still refused to believe that Lucian would want nothing to do with one of his own creations, but he did want rid of me as soon as possible. I couldn’t believe that my creator could cause the death of a whole town, even if it wasn’t him personally but if he did make the boy it would be his fault. I rented a room and slept all the day and woke up when the sun had set, I wouldn’t strike till later because I had to gather up some weapons. I gathered some knifes and also a crossbow and some ammunition for it and I went towards the tunnels under London. I jumped down and landed to be greeted by two newborns. ‘Let the fight begin’ I ran up to them and slit their throats and ran down the tunnels till I got to a small army of young vampires who were on the lowest part of the tunnels, I loaded my crossbow and shot and kept moving onto different ledges until I ran out of crossbow ammo. There were about 20 vampires left. I jumped of the ledge and landed in front of them and threw the remaining knifes at them, the one who got hit died and there were only 10 left. I ripped their heads off and I finally got to the boy. ‘You are powerful and so am I’ ‘All vampires know that power develops with age and I am older than you little boy’ He ran towards me and I flipped over his head and landed behind him and kicked his leg and knocked him over and then punched him in the face. I leant down and bit him and then cut my wrist and let a drop of my blood fall into his mouth and it killed him instantly. ‘I swore I would kill him Lucian and I did but even thought I killed all of them it doesn’t take away the hurt of losing you and my sister.’ Then I realised that the pain would never go away I would still remember them. ‘Bravo, you killed them and there is not one scratch on you’ a woman in a red cape emerged forward from the shadows ‘I’m sorry, how rude of me I am saffron’ ‘I’m Vanessa and I'm out of here, unless you want me to kill you to’ ‘Vanessa, you couldn’t kill me, I am older than you and you said yourself that power develops with age’ ‘I don’t care, just leave me alone, I don’t care about anything anymore. The people who meant something to me are dead and as I said I’m out of here’ ‘I will leave Vanessa’ she jumped on a ledge and left but there was an echo saying ‘till we meet again Vanessa and we will’ I left the tunnels and just stood in the street looking up into the night sky and the rain falling on my face the perfect mask for my tears. The night sky is a perfect example of a vampire life, Endless.
