UNTITLEDWhen leaning over the cool metal of a barrier, into dark trees and darker water, things seem dismal.
In looking down an expanse of disconnection, being stranded, everything seems hopeful.
People standing in their groups while I stood in isolation.
Cool air nipping at my naked heels, up my exposed legs. Shivering slightly in a well-fitting sweater and perfectly worn down skirt.
My face bright yet downtrodden by fatigue.
With warm ears and a cold nose.
Something I never cared to take note of before.
Sounds like being alone, over an ocean, walking out to sea or such.
And singing througn the darkness.
Wandering under street lamps and waiting for a savior that was coming through the night.
Broken vehicles and yawning companions.
But feeling like in one moment, the cold pavement could take anyone anywhere.
And that I needed to pay more attention to the things surrounding.
Everything so beautiful, a great pair of eyes in the sky.
For once wanting to feel the same.
My Vampire Romance 7My cheeks flushed, honestly, this behavior was very sudden. We only met yesterday.My Vampire Romance 78 years ago in Teen More Like This
"We should start," I mumbled, sitting back onto the bed and pulled out my books and paper.
He smiled, sitting next to me.
And he began his lesson.
The lesson lasted till dinnertime, which was at six o'clock. That's when my grandmother called my cell phone.
"It's dinner time now, Kristine." She seemed angry.
"Sorry, Grandma, We were really cracking down on the books today. He's a real big help! He's like so smart, he helps me understand it!" I smiled proudly, happy that I actually understood something in math.
"Well, you really should get home for dinner," Grandma carried on.
"But we already have invited her to dinner, Mrs. Trest." Mark kidnapped my cell phone.
"Oh, ok." She sounded less angry.
"What time would you like her home? We'll finish the last of her homework here so she won't have to work on anything when she gets home. I promise."
She stayed silent for a long moment as she
My Vampire Romance 3I kept the camera suction cupped to my face as I took as many pictures as I could before someone told Mark and I, I couldn't anymore, just in case.My Vampire Romance 38 years ago in Teen More Like This
"You really do like this place, dont you?" Mark questioned, chuckling a bit to himself and I looked up to him from behind my camera and smiled sheepishly.
"Sorry. Yes, I really do. It's my dream house." I smiled before taking another picture as we left the dinning room and headed up the stairs. I stopped at the bottom and aimed my camera to capture the whole staircase and took a picture, only to pull down my camera and realize someone was standing at the top of the staircase to the left.
I blinked before looking back down at my reviewed pictures and Mark started up the stairs to find no one was in my picture. I blinked a bit confused, but left it at that before starting up the stairs.
The man was dressed in a tux and had slicked back brunette hair with very pale skin and bright golden brown eyes. He was an older man, and I expected him to b

I looked around, still in disbelief that I was even in this situation. The house was just as I thought; Beautiful.
"Wow." I muttered to myself as I looked around. It truly was everything I have envisioned to be.
"Are you alright?" The angels voice cooed once more as he entered the room with a glass of ice water and set it down on the table before me.
I just stared up to him and all of his beauty, nodding faintly as I seemingly lost myself in his ocean blue eyes.
He smiled gently to me as I nodded slightly, still just staring up to him before he placed the glass of water in my hands.

Elizabeth screamed as she climbed out of the limo.
My parents werent all that horrible, they instantly made luscious pull over once I fell out of the car and they saw Kristine lying in the street.
I quickly ran over and kneeled down next to her. It was obvious that her arms and legs were broken, and her lower stomach was completely destroyed from shards of bone shattering in all of her organs.
Tears slipped down my cheeks freely as I pulled her body close to me.
Bloody stained her back and I could feel the red liquid drench my arms, and some of my clothes. If I wasnt mourning, I would be amazed that I wasnt getting any urges.
I couldnt hear anything else around me but the silence of her heartbeat. Even if I was to change her now, she wouldnt make it; she was already gone.
I shook my head gently. No, this couldnt be it. She can't just die, no.
I had to do something. I had to. No matter what the cost it was to me, I couldnt let her die. I needed her. I love her.
I gently lai
My Vampire Romance 6The next day when I was at school, I was so excited to see Mark after school.My Vampire Romance 68 years ago in Teen More Like This
I always couldn't wait till school ended, but now it'll become more unbearable.
Last period I sat anxiously in my seat, letting my fishnet covered leg bounce as I stared longingly at the clock.
"Ms. Curtin, Please pay attention. I know you hate this class," Mrs. Peter's hissed from her seat.
"I don't hate this class," I lied, looking back to the TV.
My eyes still couldn't help but stray. I did hate this class. I always found science to be boring, so chemistry was just horrible for me.
My eyes flickered back to the clock; five more minutes.
I smiled brightly. I was going to see Mark soon, and that was exciting.
I suddenly blinked, thinking of something.
What is he going to pick me up in? I thought, trying to remember if there were any cars out front yesterday, but I thought of nothing.
The bell finally rang and I was instantly up and running out the door before anyone was completely o

"I finished your present, Kristine!" She smiled and tugged at my arm. "Come on!" I giggled and nodded, letting her pull me down the hall to her room with Mark following behind, just smiling at the two of us.
I really made Elizabeth happy, even Mark.
This was probably the best thing that happened to me. The people who live in my dream home are so nice, and are now my friends. This was turning out better for me than I thought ever possible.
We reached Elizabeth's room and she smiled, letting go of my hand and walked into her room before running back out with a small box in her hand. She held it out for me.
"Here!" She smiled. "This is for you!"
I blinked and looked down at the small black box with pink ribbon.
Everything was pink and black with her, wasnt it?
I smiled, taking the box in my hand and gently opening it, and to my surprise, th

"Elizabeth," He stared down at his sister. Elizabeth sighed, nodding a bit before smiling up at me.
"I should probably head home soon..." I trailed off, not really wanting to leave. "But I could come back tomorrow." I smiled.
Mark and Elizabeth both nodded, smiling a bit.
"Tomorrow's my last day though, I have to go back to grandmother's to go to school."
"That's not a problem. Luscious could come pick you up from school and you could come over to my house. You having problems in any of your subjects?" Mark asked.
I hung my head, nodding a bit.
"Yea. Algebra II."
"Not a math kid?" He teased.
"No! I hate math with a burning passion that burns like the fiery flames of hell!" I yelled, getting into my little explanation.
Mark busted out laughing and I looked up to him, smiling sheepishly.

"I'm so sorry," He hissed, his skin paler than usual. He covered his face with his hand, not sure of what to do before he was suddenly gone.
"Mark!" I cried, turning to his bedroom door as it slammed shut and I quickly ran to it and knocked a bit, trying not to be too loud.
If Mark was a vampire, then the rest of his family must be too.
"Mark, Please! Please, open the door!"
"Leave, Kristine! Leave and never come back!" He cried from the other side of the door. But how could I? How could I just leave him? Leave every one of them? They were family to me now, and I couldnt just up and leave Mark. I couldnt.
It was impossible.
"I'm not going to do that, Mark!"
"You're in danger because of me, Kristine! I said leave!"
"I'm in danger when I go to school too! Doesnt mean I can stop
My Vampire Romance 10How Romantic are vampires? Very romantic.

That's the type of thing that I've started to get accustom too with Mark now. And only two days have gone by, yea sure, of course we do other stuff, not just lay around or anything, but I do enjoy the praise.
I honestly didnt want to be in this hellhole called school, but there was nothing else I could do; only one more year. ONE. Then I was finally free from high school, and I could spend more time with Mark.
P.E class started as normal as always, just doing stretches, then the ten minute run around the basketball court, then off to do some game or some sort. How I loathe P.E. It is the most ridiculous class EVER. It's not like we honestly need to take P.E. If you exercise out of school, then why do

My Vampire Romance 1"Kristine! Grab Hailey for me!" My mother called from the living room and I sighed agitatedly.My Vampire Romance 18 years ago in Teen More Like This
"Yes, Mom!" I rolled my eyes as I stood up from my seat in front of the computer. My Black hair bounced slightly as I started down the hallway and walked into the mess of a living room. My mother sat on the couch, holding Samantha, my other little sister, as she cried and screamed, while Hailey, the littlest one, sat in her "jump-a-roo", as we called it, just staring at my mother and Samantha.
I smiled as I walked over. Yea sure it seemed like I hated being the oldest out of three, but in reality I loved my little sister's with all my heart.
Hailey was only 6 months old, but was already beginning to speak and sitting up on her own. It was quite cool actually, having a genius for a little sister. Samantha, on the other hand, was about 3 years old, and a very easy-going kid. You could sit her out in the living room with "Noggin" and some toys and she'd be good for hours until she got hungry.
My Vampire Romance 16"So you 'fell in love at first sight' with this Maikala girl?" I questioned and Will smiled a bit and nodded.My Vampire Romance 168 years ago in Teen More Like This
"She was my everything from the first day we met," He trailed off, standing up from the table and he walked over to a piece of magenta velvet hanging on the wall. He removed it to reveal a painting of a beautiful woman. She had long brunette hair and beautiful shinning green eyes. Her skin was pallor, and she had a hint of pink in her cheeks.
She was dressed in the same dress I was wearing. I blinked.
"What happened?" Obviously something happened if he still had the dress, and not the woman.
Will's smile saddened before he paced the dinning room, his arms folded behind his back. He stopped and stared out one of the windows, his back was to me.
"She died. About 3 years ago to this day,"
"I see. I'm sorry." Hey, I couldnt help but feel sorry for this guy.
"I remember the day I met her like it was yesterday," He began to tell the story, so I got myself comfortable. I could tell th

I couldnt help but think the worst. Was I dead? Had I finally reached my 'happy ending', which wasnt so happy? Oh God, please dont tell me this is what I have before me for all eternity. It was nothing but black and silence.
I wouldnt be able to stand it.
Mark, I tried speaking, but I couldnt move my lips. I heard myself speaking as I thought of everything that wished to escape my lips. Victor? Mark? God?
Where was I? Why couldnt I hear anything? Why was it so dark?
I tried to sigh, but ended up stopping myself. I could feel the air thinning. Oh God, I wasnt dead, but I was soon to be suffocated. Where was I? What happened with Victor and Joan? Did Joan win?

Mark's eye twitched.
"When is it?"
"Tomorrow evening. He's taking me to the fair."
Mark blinked and looked to me almost shocked.
"That place is crowded with people. He wont be able to find a place to even TRY and bite you."
"Exactly why I agreed." I smiled. "And Shelbi's going with me too."
"I'm coming too."
I blinked and looked at him.
"I'll be your date."
I nodded, smiling.
"He did only say it was friend wise."
"Good. He can be shelbi's 'date'." He snickered and took my face into his hands and kissed me deeply.
I closed my eyes, letting myself slip into a world of bliss. He took my breath away.
"Come on; let's get you home before your mother freaks out because you're not home."
Five o'clock rolled around and there I stood with both Ma
My Vampire Romance 15I stayed silent and just thought to myself as time slowly began to go by, only to have a man come into the room. He was obviously part of the crew and he walked over and handed me a beautiful black dress; old Victorian too.My Vampire Romance 158 years ago in Teen More Like This
"What's this for?" I questioned, both with a chock from crying, but angrily.
My eye twitched.
"I'm not going to dinner with that pompous, bloody sucking, cold-hearted, fool!" I spat back, throwing him back the dress.
He sighed slightly, handing it back to me.
"The more clothes you have on, Ma'am, the less likely he is to take advantage of you."
I blinked slightly and looked down at what I was wearing; Jeans, and a T-shirt, that wasnt all that wonderful, and I'm sure it was dirty and smelly. I sighed.
"Fine." I ripped the dress out of his hands and waited for him to leave the room before I began to strip down and I unfolded the dress out on the bed, only to find black lace undergarments as well. I snarled slightly. The bastard was a pervert, bu

Would I have to give up my family I have now? I dont know if I could do that. After everything that I have done, it's been for my little sisters, I couldnt leave them. Everything that I've worked for would become nothing to me.
I couldnt allow that. I would have to talk to Mark more about this later, not when his family was there.
"Good evening," I heard a sweet voice coo from behind me and I turned to find an older woman, she looked to be in her early twenties with long black hair with a blue tint.
I blinked, staring at her. She looked a lot like Victor.
"Good evening." I smiled to her.
"You're Kristine, right?" She smiled, gently pulling me to the front door.
"I am. And you are?" I stopped, becoming suspicious of her intentions. I didnt like the smile on her face. It was

I finally awoke when the limo came to a stop and my eyes snapped open and I looked around.
"Where are we?" I looked around, but Joan wasnt there.
I tried getting out, but all the doors were locked and I couldnt get them undone. I began to worry. It was just like me to have an imagination and just totally imagine the limo blowing up with me inside.
"Joan! WITCH!! Where are you-"
"No need to scream," Joan spat as she sat back down in the limo, tossing me something.
I blinked as a thing of chocolate milk and some cookies landed in my lap, or at least near it, then looked up.
"I couldnt every well starve you, and since I didnt know what you wanted, I just figured you had a sweet tooth."

"How? Why do you say that?"
Mark stayed silent as I climbed into the car and he parked the viper in the parking lot to talk.
"Mom and dad have begun to notice my comfort level has been irregularly high. That happened the last time someone found out."
I nodded slightly.
"So, you had a girlfriend before me?"
Mark blinked and looked at me almost in shock.
Can you say confusing much?
"No, actually. That first person I told was my Guardian in Romania. Turned out he was a werewolf type being; loup Garoux. My parents didnt know this, of course, so they panicked and we moved out of Romania to America."
"So what makes you think they know?"
Mark looked to me worriedly.
"Because they said you couldnt come over today. They told me that I was only allowed to pick you up and drop you off at home. For all I know, we could be leaving today,"
I blinked and stared at him.
Mark might be leaving? All because of me?
Tears began to fill my eyes. This couldnt be hap

I never knew Mark could fly, let alone in a human form, but it turns out 'Special Ability' vampires dont have the ability to change into bats, so Victor and William could, I guessed.
"I like bats," I murmured softly to myself.
Mark chuckled a bit.
"I like bats, too."
"I always wanted a bat as a pet, like a fruit bat, so I could have something cute, and I just love them." I smiled, hugging Mark around his neck loosely as we flew.
It was interesting how I wasnt screaming my head off, being afraid of heights and everything, or even getting motion sickness from the speed that he was going, but I was very calm, and very comfortable.
"Guess I know what to get you for your birthday." Mark smiled before gently landing on the church's lawn, only down the road from my house, and next door to

I screamed and ran to the side to find him landing in the harbor. William chuckled slightly before lowering the plank and he walked over, throwing me over his shoulder.
I kicked and screamed and struggling as much as I could and kept thinking that perhaps Victor would be coming up to 'rescue' me once again, but to my surprise, Victor was no where to be seen.
"Oh my God! Victor's drowning! You a$$! Let go so someone can save him!"
"He isn't drowning." Will stated bluntly. "He just ran back onto the boat for his belt. I locked it in my room. It's a family thing, so he's just having problems getting it out, promise."
"I hate you, damn't!" I screeched and began kicking again, struggling more violently. "Let me go!"

"Mark?" I tried calling out, but nothing responded. "Mar-" I stopped as light began to fill in the black. I slowly opened my eyes, letting them adjust to the sudden burst of light.
"Where am I?" My eyes finally adjusted to the light and I sat up, only to find myself in a beautiful room and tucked under warm sheets. The windows were covered in black paint, not allowing the sunlight to shine through, but all the lights in the room were on, strangely enough.
"Where am I-"
"So, You're finally awake?" A smooth voice cooed to me from the other side of the room, and I turned to find a man with bright orange hair and beautiful golden eyes, one eye-his left- covered by an eye patch, with the ends of a long scare shown from under the patch on his cheek.
Besides that, he seemed very gentle.
"Where am I?" I questioned
My Vampire Romance 18It was difficult at first with the realization of living forever. William had a hard time also with the newest blood infatuation. It was difficult for him to deny blood, especially if someone was cut.

Maikala became worried for her love. If only the house hold knew that he was now a vampire, then that meant he'd be alright in society, but if this information managed to slip out, this could be the end of the McGregor family.

She wanted to comfort him, but she knew very well that if she did, she'd be risking her life, and if William ended up killing her on accident, she knew he'd be on his way to hell very quickly afterwards; she couldn't allow herself to be the cause of his suicide.

Tabitha didnt speak much still, but it was better than nothing at all.
The family was finally smiling me at and Jasper wasnt being a royal pain- like he was earlier.
I smiled as I hung onto Mark's arm as we walked around the room, socializing with the family. It was funny, seeing as I didnt even socialize much around my own family. I was always on the computer writing my own vampire stories. It was ironic that I happened to now be in one of my own.
"I'll be right back," I mumbled to Mark before starting to the bathroom. Nature was calling.
I walked up the stairs towards the bathroom, only to feel a hand on my shoulder. Good thing it wasnt calling too much.

Tonight was a moonlit dinner out in William's family garden. Everything was in full bloom, and he thought it would be the perfect date.

"I hope you're hungry." He smiled, showing her all the wonderful food that he, himself, had prepared for this special occasion.

"Yes, to us."
Dinner was fantastic, and with both of them content, they decided to go for a walk through the gardens. Oh how God was smiling upon these two n
