How would she have known that this is where her life was gonna go?
A couple of weeks ago she didn’t even know that vampires existed. A myth made by people who didn’t know better. But then she met him. The monster that did this to her.
At the time she thought that he was just a gross creep, until he bared his fangs and dug them into her throat. Even after that she didn’t believe it, she was in denial until this day.
Vampires, how absurd. But the signs just kept piling up. Her appearance changed all so slightly but enough to notice. Her senses sharpened, especially at night and the rising sun was not something she looked forward to anymore. It stung and made her tired. But there was something else.
At the beginning she, of course like everything else, didn’t know what was wrong.
Until one of her classmates cut her finger. And she smelled it, her heart beat faster and she wanted nothing more than to dig her teeth into her.
Disgusting. Melanie was disgusted.
She tried ignoring the feeling but as time went on it only got worse.
She remembers that she was walking home, it was the winter time so the sun had already started to set. Melanie had been more aware of her surroundings since the last time she went home that late.
She saw something in the corner of her eye .And there it was. A dog ! Melanie looked around. Where was it’s owner? She went towards it and kneeled down , calling it. She looked at the tag of that dog and then it came back. The feeling . The feeling ,that she hated so much. And this time she didn’t refuse it.
That was what she was. This was not normal, she didn’t want this. she wanted to move and start anew, without the taunts and loneliness. But now it seemed it would all start again. She did not fit in back then and she would certainly not fit in now. Not such a long time ago when she punched that man, that creature , in the face she was happy that she got away alive. But now she wished that she didn’t.
This entire situation seemed so unreal. How could she? She just killed something and she knew she would have to do this again.
She looked in the mirror and saw her blood stained face.
Melanie prided herself for being strong, but this time she couldn’t be.
She never asked for this
