"Angel, what is this pale vampire talking about?" I asked with a confused tone.
"It's true. I can't lie to you." Angel replied with his head down trying to avoid my gaze.
That's another sudden realization after a few years of thinking that Angel is a demon. But he just told me that he's an angel earlier. I guess he's telling the truth. He is indeed an angel...An angel of death!
"So it means that you're with me because I'm already dead?" I asked in a panicked voice.
"Mary, the first time you saw me, I was supposed to be your soul to the afterlife. But I can't just do it!" He explained.
"That's why you have been protecting me all these years. I have been dead since high school!" I can't believe I'm saying that.
"Yeah. But not this time. You died in your sleep and I wasn't able to protect you." Angel informed me sadly.
I'm dead! As in I'm no longer alive. That's why my soul just travels to the other side. I thought I was just astral projecting in my dream. But now that I know who Angel's true self is, I understand now why the shaman tried to close my third eye.
The shaman just wants me to go peacefully and it's not possible since Angel keeps on delaying it. He doesn't want me to die and tried to stop all the incidents that should have caused my death. It's too much for me to deal with because I don't even know that I'm dead!
Dying in my sleep is a peaceful goodbye. That's why the ghosts in the bathroom are telling me that I'm already like them. But my soul goes to the other side so it means that I'm not going to turn into a ghost-like them. It's been twenty years since I was supposed to die. I must accept my fate and go with Angel.
"Fine. Let's go wherever you're taking me." I finally told him.
"Wait! What are you talking about? You will just let the angel of death take your soul?" The vampire asked.
"Who are you? I'm so confused about being dead. Don't add to it anymore!" I asked sarcastically.
"My name is Gregory and I'm a vampire." He introduced himself.
"Greg, we don't have much time. The gate in the afterlife will be closed in ten minutes." Angel interrupted us.
"There's no need to hurry. I'm going to take her with me anyway." Greg declared.
"What are you talking about? I'm already dead so I have to go." I reminded him.
Greg ignored me and continued to talk to Angel. They look like they are arguing but I can't hear their voices even if they are just near me. Maybe they can go on mute so that she can't hear them. They went in for about three minutes and then Angel smiled at me.
"I thought we were almost late. What are you still doing?" I asked him with an irritated tone.
"I'm sorry, Mary. I thought I could protect you until the end. Goodbye now…" Angel told me and just disappeared before I could say anything.
Angel left me with this annoying vampire. What am I supposed to do now? I don't even want to go back to the mortal realm anymore. If I do, I will become a ghost. But without the angel of death, I can't find the gate to the afterlife. I feel more confused now! Why would Angel disappear?
"So, I guess you have to come with me now," Greg informed me.
"Where are we going?" I asked, still irritated with him because Angel just left her.
"You need to go back to your body so that you will wake up now," Greg explained.
"I can't go back to my body. I'm already dead, remember?" I repeated it to him in case he didn't realize why I'm here.
"You're not dead, Mary! I just took a small bite on your neck to taste your blood. But you're not waking up so I followed you here. You can't die anymore because I made you immortal like myself!" Greg informed me.
"What? Why would you do that?" I asked in a very confused manner.
I'm not dead because I'm now immortal. Gregory bit my neck while I was sleeping. But when I regained consciousness, I'm already a ghost. Then Angel tried to bring me to the afterlife but suddenly disappeared after talking to Gregory. It makes more sense now why am I not dead even if I'm on the other side.
"I'm a vampire?" I said out loud.
"Yes, Mary! You're my destined companion. You have to go with me now so we can go home." Greg explained.
"I can't go with you. You're not even my boyfriend! My grandma will be so mad at me…" I reply while saying what I'm thinking out loud.
"Sure, I'm not. But I have chosen you to be my bride and a lifelong companion. That's why I made you immortal!" Greg informed me.
"Common, just leave me alone. I'm very confused now and I need to think!" I snapped at him.
"If you don't go back to your body now, you will die and get stuck in between realms. I guess I don't have a choice but to do this!" Greg explained and decided.
I didn't even have a chance to ask him what he's about to do to me. All he did was stare straight into my eyes and I was out in a trance. I forgot, vampires have a hypnotic gaze. Gregory used it on me and I can't do anything about it anymore.
"Let's have our first kiss now!" Greg whispered and kissed my lips passionately.
Even if I don't like what's happening, I just stood there and let him kiss me. But his lips are more intoxicating than his eyes. Before I knew it, I lost my consciousness. All I can see is darkness and I can also smell the scent of the roses that just made me give in to the sleepy spell the vampire had given me.
I'm still in a dream state because I can see Gregory sneaking inside my dorm room. He's watching me sleep and I can see that my body keeps on tossing and turning from my bed. When Gregory went near my body, he smiled as he looked at my exposed neck. When his fangs show up as he smiles and looks at me before bending over to my sleeping body. He sinks his vampire fangs to my exposed neck and I felt a sharp pain. The skin on my neck stings like hell after he takes away his vampire fangs from me. Gregory just sits beside my body for the longest time as if waiting for me to wake up. But he became impatient and stood up. To my horror, he looked me directly in the eye. Then he was away and just vanished in thin air. That's when I walk to go outside of my room. I s
"Okay, enough drinking for now!" Gregory pushed me away from him slightly.I almost didn't let go of him because his blood made me quench my thirst as well as satisfy my hunger. But I never thought that I would see his memories from my vision from drinking his blood. It's so vivid as a dream but the only difference is that it was his memory.Gregory wiped his blood from my lips clean with his thumb. I feel like a child who needs to be taken care of by an adult. But I like the gesture and I can get used to it. Nobody has taken care of me ever since my grandma passed away. But it's too much to ask from anyone until Gregory."Welcome to my world!" Gregory said to me, smiling sweetly.I wasn't able to take a good look a
It's a surprise marriage and I never thought that Gregory was serious about it. But since we're already in the chapel, I don't have a choice but to play along. There were about six vampires who attended our wedding ceremony. They all look like couples and ready to catch me in case I change my mind about it.I'm not sure if the priest is human though. But he looks stoned the entire time. Maybe Gregory hypnotized him or something. He's not pale to be a vampire so I concluded that he's human. I absent-mindedly touched my neck where Greg bit me while I was asleep from my dorm."Do you, Gregory Duke, take this woman as your lawfully wedded wife?" The priest asked in a robotic tone."I do!" Gregory replied to the priest.
Waiting for a destined lover for 500 years has never crossed my mind when I met Gregory from the other side. That was just yesterday and now, we're already married.I've learned that for vampires, it's more important for them to have a companion. Our marriage is not exactly because of love like humans were trying to accomplish.Vampires don't have to worry about the need to have children. All they have to do is to bite someone and give them their blood. That's how newborn vampires like me were created.After the wedding, Gregory left me by myself inside the room where I woke up earlier. I'm not sure what I have to do now that I was left alone. After becoming a vampire, I already feel bored.I
"Gregory! Don't ever do that again!" I firmly said when I realized that it was him.I can see him smirk with his white teeth and fangs protruding from his luscious lips. It made me think about how those lips will feel on me besides my lips. We already kissed twice before so I have an idea that they taste sweet."What are you doing here? Let's get back outside!" Gregory said and took my hand.My thoughts about how his lips tasted made me feel embarrassed. How come I have to think about that the moment I see him? But I tried to hide my thoughts and just followed him with one hand on his.I have never been so close to a guy before and I can’t help but feel as if I’m blushing. That&rs
Learning how to be a vampire is not easy. I thought that all I needed to know was how to hunt for food. But it’s more than that because there are restrictions now that I'm already a vampire.Gregory is very patient in teaching me and I appreciate that. But there are times that it gets on my nerves. I didn't know that I needed to learn the vampire's way of living.I have to act like a proper lady whenever the vampires gather. I disagree since we are all bloodsuckers there anyway. But Gregory has a status quo to uphold and I have to protect it as well as his wife.There are times that I don't even want to join their grand get-together. Although I'm not sure if Gregory will allow me to avoid it. I don't want to know how he will react if I dec
Gregory approaches me and the "Nuno" steps back right away. I can see the fear in their eyes as they look at my husband."Mary, you have to run, he's a vampire!" One of the "Nuno sa punso" informed me.They are smaller than dwarves but bigger than fairies. Some urban legends say that they have supernatural powers and they are magical by nature."Don't be afraid, he's my husband!" I laughed with their ignorance."Really? You must be a vampire now!" The older Nuno concluded."Yes, I'm a newborn vampire. So don't worry, you know I wouldn't hurt anyone!" I explained. A few days had passed after I saw Gregory talking to Angel. I don't dare to ask my husband about it. He's already too sensitive about my feelings for him. I don't want him getting jealous of the grim reaper.No matter how curious I was, I chose to keep my questions to myself. After all, we are going to Romania in a month. That's where the vampire council is located.Since I'm a newborn vampire, I need to prove myself to the council. Every new vampire needs to show themselves according to Gregory. That's why I have to be there along with him.There was a case before when a lot of newborns emerged. They end up being mindless creatures with a massive thirst for blood. The council was made to take control.
The Other Side Gregory's Ex
