Eternal vampyre: 10 Years Later

They were walking through the grounds of their house where they had spent their honeymoon all those years ago. William had decided to get it back to a habitable state, as the few rooms he had redone were not enough to live in. The moon was casting its glow on their faces, making the pale skin shine even brighter. Rose turned to William and looked into his eyes. It seemed like he had aged several years, when in reality that wasn’t possible. They’d lost a few friends to human hunters and it had taken its toll on the both of them. Now they just wanted to go back in time and enjoy themselves.

William had prepared a surprise for Rose. He had organised a beautiful dinner for just the two of them. He had set up a beautiful table but had left the dining room itself as it was, cobwebs, dusty pictures, everything was untouched. While Rose admired the room, William pulled out a chair for her and guided her into it. William sat in a chair next to her and helped himself to the food. Although they thrived on blood, they still enjoyed the taste of normal food. William had made it all himself because they didn’t want anyone involved in restoring this house.

He had attempted to make some pasta for her. He knew she loved all things Italian, after having spent time there after she had been turned. He had failed terribly though, cooking happened to be the only thing he couldn’t do. She appreciated the thought though and that was all that mattered in that moment. When they had finished off the meal with two blood bags each, which left a nicer taste in their mouths, they got up and made their way into the ballroom to play some old music on the record player.

They sent images to themselves from dances they have been to and also shared their memories from human times.

William had enjoyed life as a human, he had many good memories about it. He was extremely pissed when he found out that he had been turned into a vampire. Now, he loved a life as a vampyre and couldn’t even imagine life as a human. Rose, on the other hand, enjoyed vampyre life better than her human one. She loved the power and other opportunities that came with it. That wasn’t to say she had bad memories of human life, they were just different to her vampyre ones. She felt like she was made for vampyre life, everything she had experienced was so much better as a vampyre.

They both snapped out of their thought process when the song ended. Rose jumped around Williams next and hugged him, William was surprised and didn’t know how to act. Rose sensed that and sent him a message of apology. William shook his head and returned the hug.

There was a knock at the door that made them both jump. William let go of Rose and put his finger to his lips.

“Wait here, I’ll investigate.” Rose nodded and did as she was told, watching him as he left the room. The door flew open and Michael stepped in, he was alone this time and extremely confident: “So, where’s my room?” William was still pissed at him so he replied rudely: “Why do you think you have a room here, in our house?”

“Why shouldn’t I? I’m your brother.”

“You stopped being my brother when you joined them.” Michael was speechless, he didn’t think William would bring it up.

“My dear brother, are you really bringing that up? We all make the wrong choices at some point in our lives.”

“Don’t pretend you’re the victim in this, you have done things no one could forgive.”

“Sorry, I feel bad about this and I’m in trouble right now. Could you please help me?”

“You don’t get it at all, don’t you?” William got mad and was almost screaming at him. Rose heard that and went to see what’s wrong. “Oh, it’s you again,” she said it with that weird power which William last felt at their reception, he sent a thought of worry to Rose. Rose ignored it, she could deal with this herself.

“Why so feisty, dear sister in law?” He didn’t expect what happened next. Rose had him up against the wall in a flash.

“Do not call me that again,” she growled. “I will have your head and you know I’m capable of doing so. We do not care for your problems, don’t bring them into our life.”

Michael looked scared and begged for her to release him. She blocked his thoughts so that she could concentrate. William instead pulled her away from Michael, worried what she could do to him. However troubled his relations were with Michael, he didn’t want him hurt.

Michael ran away but something had happened so William started listening his thoughts again. He sent out a thought to him and said that they should meet tomorrow and that he’ll find a place for him to live. Michael was grateful and promised to tell William everything.

Rose seemed to have cooled down, she was panicking about what had happened. She didn’t mean to hurt Michael and was actually worried about him. William calmed her but didn’t tell her that he’ll meet him tomorrow, he was still worried about that power she got when she was pissed at someone.

He suggested they go back to the ballroom and dance for a bit. Rose agreed and they made their way back. William had his arms tightly around Rose, one round her waist and the other cradling her head to his shoulder. Rose started to cry at the gesture and William felt at a loss of what to do. William sent a thought to her head and then spoke “What’s wrong?”

“I’m just scared and I have no idea what to do about it.”

“It’ll be okay, it’s nothing serious. We’ll go and find my older friends and I’m sure they know how to help.”

It was getting late so they went to their coffin. Rose couldn’t fall asleep and stayed silent until William was sleeping. Then, she burst into tears, she hoped that William won’t hear her but she forgot that William’s hearing was better than any other vampire’s. He woke up and hugged her, “What’s wrong?”

“I don’t know what’s happening to me. Why does it happen every time I’m angry?”

“I’m not sure, dear. I promise we will figure it out tomorrow. Please, try to sleep, for me.” He gave her a hug and settled back down. She nodded to herself and curled into him.

Eternal Vampyre: Honeymoon

It was a beautiful night with a huge thunderstorm. They had picked this kind of weather, it was perfect for their honeymoon. William had chosen the perfect place for them to stay. It was near the place where they first met, Rose had no idea where they were going but she enjoyed the secretive side of William.
“Where are we going?” Rose said, through laughter. William shook his head and kept leading. Rose followed his steps and soon realised where they were. William turned round and saw the smile on her face as she recognised the architecture . He grabbed her hand and led her up the steps of the old building. It was a little run down since they’d last been there, but it added to the magic of the evening. Rose couldn’t hold back her smile, William saw her radiating happiness and he just needed to kiss her but she saw it coming and she ran away from him. William ran to catch her, it looked like two animals playing with each other, they fit so well with the old architecture and they both felt like they were back in the early 1800s. Finally, William caught Rose and gave her a kiss. They both could feel some kind of a sensation going through their bodies and they became as one.
“What was that for?” Rose whispered, her hands pressed against William’s chest.
“So many questions.” William gave a low growl into her ear. “Come on, dear, we must stop with the questions. You’re my wife now.” Rose shuddered at the intimacy, she had never quite gotten used to that.
“You’ve always treated me like you owned me. Such an animal attraction.” Rose looked into his eyes and saw something she couldn’t quite place. Rose had never seen that look before and asked cheekily: “Is this your new husband look?” William was a bit confused and didn’t know what to reply, so he hugged her and replied as cheekily: “Maybe.” Then Rose pushed William over , ending up with her on top of him. She held his arms down and gave a sly grin.
“I’ve gotten stronger.”
“You caught me by surprise, dear.” In a flash he’d flipped them over. “I win.” He leaned down to kiss her, when his lips met the floor. He looked up to see his wife, standing over him, laughing wildly. Her hair was all over the place and the dress she had been wearing was falling off her shoulders slightly. He couldn’t get over her beauty, how lucky he was to have met her that day in the gardens.
He stood up and walked over to her. He grabbed her hand and led her up the stairs, to where he remembered her favourite room was. The room hadn’t changed with time at all. The walls had the same wallpaper as it used to have, it hadn’t even faded a bit. It had a beautiful floral pattern on it and the floor was made of dark wood, it didn’t look like the interior on that time period was. It was very futuristic for that time. William had kept it as it was, he’d bought the place after they’d met because he’d knew this will end with a marriage one day.
He stood by the door frame and let Rose enter the room by herself. She slowly walked into the centre, surveying every inch of the place with wide eyes. All the events that had occurred here came flooding back to her, causing her head to tilt backwards as they hit her. William was by her side to hold her steady.
“Are you alright?” He whispered.
“Yeah, yeah I’m fine. Just a strong connection.” She gave a weak smile to him and moved over to the chair she had once spent so long in. William watched her cautiously, ready to help her if she needed it. There was a lot about that room that William didn’t know, he wouldn’t have kept it the same if he had known the memories Rose did. Soon he noticed that Rose was crying, he was next to her hugging her within a second. He could hear all the emotions and stories through her mind. They both felt the even stronger connection going they now had, you could almost see it. Then there was a complete change of emotions. They both felt happy again and Rose dragged William with her. William didn’t know that but Rose had been visiting this place since they met and worked on a room for William. It was down in the basement because she knew William loved to be underground and in the woods, he liked to be a part of the nature.
As they neared the room, Rose put her hands over his eyes and sent a thought to him: “Mind the rafter.” William ducked and Rose opened the door with her free hand. She removed the hand and pushed him forwards. He opened his eyes and drank in the room. There were a few glass cases around the room, filled with taxidermy. He grinned as he remembered his animal hunting days, before he turned into what he is.
“Do you like it?” Rose asked. William hugged her and nodded.
“Of course I do. I love anything you do.” He replied. There was a moment of silence when William walked around the room and observed every single detail in the room. Then Rose could hear Williams thoughts, memories and emotions rushing through his head. Rose knew only a small bit of it so she listened carefully, intrigued by his thought process. It had been a shocking and emotional day for both of them, so they went for a late night hunt, to bring in more thrill and excitement to run with the time.

Eternal Vampyre: Wedding Reception

 

William and Rose arrived at their reception to thunderous applause from human and vampyre friends alike. They smiled graciously and made their way further into the building, waving a hello to all their friends. They went to the table at the back of the building, which was situated on a platform, overlooking the rest of the room.

“So this is what it’s like to be married…” whispered Rose. William just nodded and replied to her in their thoughts: “Yes, this is what it’s like to be married.” They sat down and their servants started to serve the dinner. Humans got a fancy dinner, it combined the present and the past and everyone really enjoyed it. They served the same for vampyres but they didn’t really eat it, they just drank their “wine”.

After the dinner was over, William tapped the side of his wine glass and stood up.

“I’d like to say a few words,” he announced, looking at his newly wedded wife. “Thank you all for coming here, friends. We’re not usually ones to show emotions-” at this point everyone nodded and laughed “-but obviously it is an emotional time and we’re very happy you were here to share it with us.” Rose disturbed his speech with a random thought: “Most of them seem uncomfortable here.” William made an awkward pause in his speech as they were discussing it with Rose, then he continued: “We hope you’ll enjoy the evening. Now let’s dance!” As he had finished his speech, he asked Rose for a dance. Everyone who knew William, knew that this won’t be a regular reception.

They stepped onto the dance floor. William turned Rose around and held her in his arms. A slow song came over the speakers, one he had specifically picked for the moment. It was a song from the late 1800s. It was a song which William composed when they met with Rose, he had never played it for her and decided now was the right time to play it for her.

People watched as the pair danced and it seemed so magical to them. They thought it was something so pure and raw but at the same time the most beautiful thing they’d ever seen. Once the song had finished, the guests all clapped, bringing William and Rose out of their trance. They shook their heads slightly, before motioning to their friends to join in the merriment.
“I need to talk to you,” Rose sent to William via their thoughts. “It’s important.” William looked over to her and they started walking back to their table.
“What is it?” He whispered to her.
“The guests. They’re not happy. I can sense it.” William glanced over the crowd assembled and tuned into their feelings. You could see and even feel the tension in the air. William got worried, Rose sensed it and sent another thought to William: “Maybe we should end the party here, it’s getting late anyways”. William checked his watch and it was 4 am. “We still have some time, are you sure it’ll end bad?” Rose just looked at him and nodded.
“We have to go now or they will come.” William knew instantly who they were and made his way down the floor.
“If I could have your attention please!” He shouted over the noise. “We feel it is time for this party to end. We have to be heading home soon, anyway. Thank you once again for coming here, it really does mean a lot to us. Take the favours from your tables and enjoy. Good night, friends.” The crowd kept murmuring but made their way to the respective tables. William sent a thought out to Rose, to call her to him. It took a second for Rose to stand next to him. They stood by the doorway and started to send people away but instead of sending people away, more guests came, they came.

“I heard there’s a vampyre wedding with live desserts!” the oldest one of them said. William recognised him and said: “You won’t get your dessert here Michael!”
“Why not dear brother?” the older one gave a sly smile.
“Because these are our friends, and if you touch them I swear I’ll-”
“You swear you’ll do what?” He laughed mercilessly. “We all know how that turned out last time, don’t we?” He turned to his group with a grin on his face, knowing he had shut his brother up.
“Yes, we do. This time I am stronger, brother. I have new blood within me, I have the power of love on my side too.”
“‘The power of love’?! Dear boy, you’ve gone soft. Vampyres do not love, you know we don’t. Whatever . . . feelings,” He turned his nose up at the word. “You have for this woman, are completely made up. You can either let us have a bit of dessert or put up a fight. Which would you rather?” William knew his brother was trying to get to him, trying to manipulate his thoughts as he always did, but he resisted. Rose was sending him calming thoughts to try to keep him under control. Rose was completely in William’s mind but Michael’s words were extremely powerful and hurt him a lot. William knew he probably wouldn’t win Michael even though he seemed to have been starving himself for at least a decade. William was clueless. He didn’t know what to do. All he knew was that he has to fight with his brother again and he told Rose that as well. As William and Michael argued, Rose got all of the vampyres together and were ready for a fight. “Others are ready to fight,” said Rose with a new kind of determination in her voice.
“As long as I can have Michael,” replied WIlliam with a quick thought.

“Come here little brother, lets fight,” said William as he jumped to attack Michael.William grabbed Michael by the shoulders and forced him to the floor. Michael looked slightly concerned at his brother’s new strength, he had not expected him to be right. He gained the strength to get back up on his feet and push William over.
Meanwhile Rose and the other vampyres were attacking Michael’s group. They had managed to pin a couple down, whereas some had decided to retreat. The determination of Rose’s group was clear, they were not going to back down. Rose suddenly got a sharp pain in her stomach and clutched it. She stumbled back slightly, meaning the vampyre she had been tackling had pounced on her. She turned her head towards where William and Michael had been fighting to see that Michael had clawed at William’s stomach. Although vampyres don’t bleed like humans, a red trickle was seen exiting the wound. Rose was worried about it but she kept on fighting. Soon she killed Michael’s last friend and said to Michael: “You’re all alone now, don’t you think the power of love is strong after all?” Michael saw it and realised he had been wrong. He ran off and no-one knew where he went. William was observing Rose the whole time she had said it and he was a bit worried. Rose had looked like an animal, fierce and full of hate. “Are you okay, honey?” William sent a worried message to her. Rose whispered her answer: “Now that he’s gone, yes.” William could see Rose relaxing so he went and kissed her.

Eternal Vampyre: Wedding Special (Rose)

I woke up when the moon rose. My stomach was unsettled and my head was spinning. I got up out of my coffin, trying to stop the nerves. I smiled to myself when I saw the beautiful dress I had laid out the night before. One of my human friends had helped me make it. I had become very fond of it.

I went to the dining room and longed to see William standing there, with the usual two blood bags in his hands, but I was alone. I fetched a blood bag for myself out of the cupboard, as I preferred warmer blood to calm my nerves. After I had finished, I called up one of my human friends to help me get things ready. She came over pretty quickly, or as fast as a human can, I suppose. She smiled at me and packed me off to the bedroom where she sat me at the dressing table.

A few hours later, my hair and make up (I favoured the “goth” style, as you humans would call it) was complete. I rose from my seat and made my way to the dress. It was a royal blue velvet dress. The material had been pretty easy to come by, although I’m sure my human friend had other thoughts on how we obtained it. She helped me get it on and told me I looked beautiful. She positioned me in the front of the mirror – and I hope I don’t sound too vain when I say this but I had to agree with her. The royal blue complemented my pale skin and the make up went well with it. I hugged her and bid her farewell, that I’d see her at the reception afterwards.

It was quarter-past one when I had finally finished getting myself composed. I made my out of the house and towards the beach that we had picked for our wedding. My nerves had come back as I was left to my thoughts. I tried to shoo them out of my mind, but by the time I had done so, I was nearing the beach.

I saw him, sat on the sand. I smiled to myself and walked up to him, knowing he’d be able to hear my footsteps if he was listening out for me. He didn’t move, so I whispered into his ear,
“I’m here.” He turned round at the sound of my voice, hugging me.

We went through the process of the marriage, which in vampyre world is drinking each other’s venom. So if one of us were to die, the other will too. We do get very lonely, if we’re left to our own devices. After we had finished, we turned to walk to our reception.
“Together, forever?” He asked.
“Together, for an eternity.” I replied, a smile still on my face.

Eternal Vampyre: Wedding Special (William)

Woke up as usual. I was so anxious to see my dear Rose. Usually we’d have breakfast together but today I was alone. I didn’t know how to act and what to do. I went for an early hunt but I couldn’t really eat. I knew I had to spend a day amongst humans because me and Rose had made mostly human friends.

I found a hobo, he was possibly drunk because his blood tasted like cheap alcohol. Why can’t people understand the simple quote “You are what you eat?”, it would make life easier for all of us. Found a few more hobos and drunk them as well. I was full but I didn’t want to show up there smelling like cheap alcohol so I went to the blood bank and stole some blood for refreshing my breath.

After I had finished with my breakfast and had a lot of time so I went for a long walk in the forests. I like forests, they calm me and make me understand how quickly time passes. People don’t understand that but if you have seen a tree going through the whole life cycle you understand how short is humans lifespan. Forests always give me the feeling I’m like an alien. Even though I’m one of the oldest vampyres alive I still don’t really know how the very first of our kind came to life. It’s pretty ironical, when you know how to make new vampyres and have made at least a dozen yourself. I try to avoid making them because the teaching process takes time and they usually get killed anyways. Many of them won’t survive their first 100 years and every time one of your own vampyres dies you can feel a part of you die, it doesn’t change anything in your life but as it happens it hurts a lot.

It was noon(midnight for all of the human readers out there) and I had arrived to the other side of the forest. Usually I go through half of the planet with the same time but I needed to think and admire this beautiful landscape. I realised there was a lot to be done and I ran back home. I took out my best suit and changed the clothes. I still had one and a half hours before the wedding so I decided to get going. It was a one hour walk and I didn’t want to risk getting late.

We got married in a beautiful place. It was just the two of us. For vampyres you only need yourself and your future wife (you basically drink each others venom and that seals your love for an eternity, if one dies the other will die too), you can have some guests but we wanted to be alone. I arrived there 15 minutes before 2am, I had taken the longer route just to avoid meeting some old friends of mine. I sat there on the sand when I heard her whisper: “I’m here.” If I had a heart I probably would have had a heart attack, she looked amazing. Went through the process and it was amazing, I couldn’t have been more happier then I was. I felt like I was 100 years old again, my broken soul and heart was fixed again… “Together forever?” I asked her as we walked to our small reception afterwards, “together for an eternity,” replied Rose with a huge smile on her face.
