~Thinking about the past~
I looked at my hands searching for any traces of ashes. Bu I didn’t find any of those. My hands were white like bleached bones and with no scars or marks. Perfect! I could still feel the necks of the two guards breaking in my hands. And then, the stake that went straight through their hearts. That’s the problem with the immortals: When you become a vampire, you are indestructible. But when a wooden stake goes through your heart – Poof! You die and there is nothing you can do about it. I have had my fare share of years living as a vampire and I do not recall the time when I was human. Perhaps I was born this way.
However I still feel something different, strange when I feed on my victims. A feeling I do not wish to think that it is mine but it may be. The same feeling pushed me to turn Galahad into one of us: a vampire. His eternal suffering is suffocating. Not to mention that it is such a great amusement. I am over 800 years old. And, for immortals, power comes with age. The older you are, the stronger you’ll get. I smiled. Because of Galahad, I have not killed a single human in 300 years.
I heard some noises in the Woods to the East. I smiled again, then I started to run at full speed. Two and a half seconds later, I was standing next to Galahad, who was fighting three skeleton guards…again…
“Dear husband, what are you doing?”
“Leave me be, spawn of darkness! I have nothing to say to you!” he said with his voice trembling of anger and exhaustion.
“Your suicide mission won’t work, dear husband. You can’t die…You’re already dead!”
“And I have you to thank for, right? Stole my soul, trick me into marry you only to have me turned into this? I should stake right this instance!” he shouted.
“Don’t be stupid. You can’t possibly stake your maker! Even if you could… If you kill me, all the vampires that I have turned will die along with me. And it so happens that you are the only one that I have turned. That means you’ll die!”
“Better dead than this!”
“How you jest.” I laughed. “Let me help you… And then, you and I need to talk.” I said.
A few minutes later, Galahad destroyed the last skeleton, while I finished ripping mine. The first one ran away. I took the shield and a few arrows that I found lying on the ground.
