"I'll protect you even if it costs my life," That's the line I hated most in my life. I know, I had a very long life-spam plus, they even see me as a useless man-sucking machine that I knew that I was not the kind of vampire who preferred blood most. I hated the idea of sinking my lethal fangs inside their fragile necks and sucked up every bits of their life source which was our food, our source of life. But then would I have to endure starvation with lacks of energy for hunting anymore.
One day, I was summoned before his great one, the lord of all vampires, the Dracula, who owns all the vampire let alone the bats and those wandering were-wolves. If any of us to be found betraying our own kinds, even for a halfer which was recently been bred by a vampire who fell for a He human, would be annihilated leaving no trace of his or her very own existence.
"You called for me, My Lord?" I began to feel the intense atmosphere which was created by his solely stature which was now upon me. I knelt to express my loyalty towards him.
"Yes, I have been expecting you, My Lady. The news I had in mind might be very unpleasant one but this is the least I can do to help you regain your spirit in becoming a perfect vampire," He gestured his fingers touching his beardless chin and was staring sharply towards my lowly figure who was still kneeling before him.
"I could not read what is in your mind, My Lord that I know where I stand and I gain none of those prowess to do so. Please forgive my rudeness for being so stupid not to understand your noble attention," I knew that I started to quiver by that time and so did he noticed my oddly moves which couldn't stay still.
"I'll just have to come clean then. Lady Natalya Ashley, you are the one and only being who failed to be a complete vampire. As to let you be one, we have to send you out to that harsh world and let you survive with your own wits. Will this help you to gain your bravery to suck those filthy human's blood."
As my eyes widened, tears streamed down from my pale cheeks, "Are you saying that I am to be banished for my unwillingness in sucking human's blood?"
He answered with a slight nod and that answered everything. As I covered my mouth and tried my best to hold my tears, it's still futile since that I burst into tears and wailed as much as my heart desired. He said nothing by then and sent me away to the cold outside world of vampire land which was now a foreign place for me to settle in.
With the heavy heart I carried along my journey, not knowing how long had I been walking that was miles away from my former home, being exiled was not a happy thing yet an experience for me to be told to my descendants to have guts when it comes to blood-sucking. Days had passed without me noticing and my strength drained away, leaving a weak body which was still walking. If in the previous day, I had had my parents and my siblings to feed me, now I owned no one in helping me finding my very own meals that I was not so good at it. Even for a slight second, had I thought of yielding to my fate that was not to be existed in this cruel world filled with filth. The breeze from the wind was mocking me and piercing me with its cold maliciousness.
Soon, I began to lose my consciousness and lay still quietly and waited for my body to wilt and died. Dying wasn't that bad if you're a complete useless vampire and I know, I know that after all these years, I had been living under everyone's mercy. Even vampires had no intention in seeing their very own comrades suffer.
"Dad, you said that you'll protect me even if it costs your life," I cried in a weak tone. "Are those bluffing of yours are lies? Am I to be fated this way?" I paused. "Oh, God. Even though I doubted your very own existence, if you're there, please feel pity for me for not sucking one of your beings' blood and had never killed them by any mean."
"I think, the God hears your prayers," A voice reached my ears out of the blue. I raised my head and tried to see the stature but then, the stature began to diminish throughout the horizon and that's where I knew that I was fainted.
To be continued.
