Chapter 1

Character: Vampire

Richard’s POV

I was born into a family of vampires. My parents were two of the most powerful and respected vampires in the world. They were both over a thousand years old and had lived through countless battles and wars.

My mother was a fierce warrior, feared by many. She had fought in some of the most important battles in history and had earned the respect of her enemies. My father, on the other hand, was a diplomat skilled in the art of persuasion and negotiation. He had helped forge alliances between different vampire clans and had prevented many conflicts.

Growing up, I was always in awe of my parents. They were strong, intelligent, and respected. They taught me everything I needed to know about being a vampire, from how to control my thirst to how to use my powers. They were always there for me, supporting and guiding me.

As I grew older, I began to understand the sacrifices my parents had made for me. They had given up so much to ensure my safety and my future. They had lived through centuries of pain and suffering, and yet they never lost their love for each other or for me.

But as much as I loved and respected my parents, there were some things about them that I didn’t understand. They were so powerful and so respected, and yet they never seemed happy. They rarely smiled or laughed, and they always seemed burdened by the weight of their responsibilities.

I remember once asking my father why he didn’t smile more often. He looked at me for a long time before answering.

“My son,” he said, “we vampires have seen and done things that most humans can’t even imagine. We’ve lived through wars, famines, and plagues. We’ve watched civilizations rise and fall. We’ve seen the best and the worst of humanity. And through it all, we’ve learned that there is very little in this world that is truly worth smiling about.”

I didn’t understand what he meant at the time, but as I grew older, I began to see the truth in his words. I saw the pain and suffering in the world, and I saw how my parents had dedicated their lives to protecting me and others like me from that pain.

But even their strength and courage couldn’t protect them from the unforeseen dangers of the human world. One evening, while returning from their daily patrol, they were ambushed by a group of humans who had set a trap for them.

The humans were armed with guns and knives, and my parents had no choice but to defend themselves. Despite their superior strength and combat skills, they were outnumbered and outgunned. The fight was fierce, but in the end, my parents were overpowered and killed by the human attackers.

When I received the news of their death, my heart shattered into a million pieces. I couldn’t believe that my parents, who had always been so strong and capable, were gone forever. The pain was unbearable, and it took me a long time to come to terms with their loss.

In the years that followed, I dedicated myself to carrying on their legacy. I trained harder than ever before, honing my skills to protect and defend the innocent. And while the memory of my parents still haunts me to this day, I know that they would be proud of the work that I am doing in their memory.

The pain of losing my parents never left me, and I vowed to seek revenge for their deaths. I knew that I couldn’t bring my parents back, but I could make sure that those responsible for their deaths paid the ultimate price.

I spent years tracking down the humans who had killed my parents. I scoured the streets, the alleys, and the shadows of the human world, looking for any leads that could bring me closer to my target. I spoke to informants, gathered intel, and abided by my time, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike.

Finally, my patience paid off. I discovered the location of the group of humans responsible for my parents’ deaths. I put together a plan, gathered my allies, and prepared for the final showdown.

The battle was brutal, but I and my team emerged victorious. The humans who had killed my parents were taken down, one by one, and justice was served.

As I stood over the fallen bodies of my parents’ killers, I felt a sense of relief wash over me. I finally avenged my parents, and I knew they could rest in peace.

But as I walked away from the scene, a sense of emptiness consumed me. I had spent so many years seeking revenge, but now that it was over, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I realized that my thirst for vengeance has consumed me and that I needed to find a new purpose in life.

At first, I decided to honor my parents’ memory by dedicating myself to a new cause. I became an advocate for peace and understanding between humans and non-humans, and I worked tirelessly to build bridges between the two worlds. And while the pain of my parents’ loss never fully went away, I knew that their memory would live on through the work that I was doing.

I continued doing the good I was doing until I woke up one day with an insatiable desire for blood.

Human blood!

I wanted to fill my mouth with human blood. I wanted to drink pure human blood until I reached a point where my taste was no longer valid.

At my worst self, I met Jessica. She was standing like an angel in front of me, with her eyes glowing like someone who was ready to spread her wings in front of me.

“Are you okay?” Jessica asked, moving closer to me.

I was terrified that she had seen me in this state, and in my defense, I told her to get out of my sight.
