“Are you really sure? I told you I have not seen the girl. I saw no one, ”Van said with conviction. I told her about the girl, the new student.
“Who is she? What’s the name? ” Via asked. "There was also a new student in my class earlier, maybe they are the same."
"Cassandra." I plainly said. That’s what I remember when she introduced me after she sat down. The professor told her to sit next to me since it’s the only vacant seat.
“Oh, the girl with the strong blood. Cassy. ”
"Cassy, are you close?" Van asked, wondering.
“Yeah, I was next to her earlier. I even invited her to have lunch with us - oh there she goes. ” Via waved and then shouted Cassy's name.
I didn’t dare to look. I was busy stopping my stomach from circling. I don’t know, I don’t get why I’m suddenly nervous. Is that because I knew she knew about us then my sister is innocently trying to be friends with her.
She loves being friends with strong blooded humans, not that she has the intention to drink their blood. She feels that those kinds of people need protecting because their blood is stronger. Prone to half-bloods because when half-bloods drink their blood, they get stronger.
As for us, we can suppress our desire because we are used to drinking animal blood. But we still need to drink human blood because it makes us strong so sometimes, when we feel like we are weak we buy blood on the red bank and drink it. At least, it wasn’t illegal.
“Hi Cassy, sit beside my brother. Vlad, are you classmates right? ” She smiled as a response to my brother. "And this is Van, my brother too."
Van just waved at him and was silent for a moment.
She really got that blood, the rarest of them all.
She was already busy talking with my sister when I stood up. They both stopped and I just said that I finished eating even though I haven't touched my food yet. I know, the food is just a disguise because we don’t really eat. When I look at her, it seems like she is sad because I am leaving or I was just hallucinating again so I ignored her.
I went outside. I'm irritated. It's easy for me to get bored and irritated. And I get irritated whenever I see that woman. I'm annoyed for reasons I don't know. My stomach kept on circling over and over again and almost vomited. I never felt this feeling before. Am I nervous? I don’t know. I don’t know and I don’t get it, that's why I’m annoyed!
I went to my usual place, the garden which is far away from the cafeteria and our building, though I like spending my time here because it’s quiet. Not many people come here because the garden is too old and in a secluded area of the school. It’s also not very well so a lot of grass grows. There was a rumor that there was a ghost here which for almost a year of my stay here I still haven't seen. Not that I care, I just like sleeping in here because there is no nuisance.
It was after a minute when I smelled her blood. Strange. I don't have to open my eyes just to find out who. I felt her standing in front of me.
"Hi," she greeted me as I kept my eyes closed. "Don't you remember me?"
I do, I thought to myself. I remember very well that you suddenly disappeared in front of me last night. I don’t even know how you did that.
"I saw you last night," she started. I restrained myself from moving and staring. I can’t kill her. We don’t kill people. I would just ask Via to change her memories, after all they’re friends. Good thing, it would be easy for Via. "With your brother, and with a unique creation of God."
I felt that she moved a step forward. I estimated she was only two steps away from where I was lying.
“But that wasn’t it. You see me before that too. ”
I couldn’t hide my frown when she said that. I kept my eyes closed as I tried to remember where else I had seen her but I couldn’t get it out of my memory until she said three familiar words to me.
"One, four, three."
I opened my eyes as soon as she said that.
I still haven’t figured out the magic she used every time she disappeared in front of me.
I went back to the cafeteria, to my surprise she was there with my sister and brother like she never even moved an inch. They were actually enjoying their conversation about something when I approached them.
I raised an eyebrow, I couldn’t hide the disbelief. "Did you just come back?"
They all looked at me.
"Duh, we didn't leave here." Via said, rolling her eyes. “Where did you go? Why did you leave all of a sudden? ”
"I slept," I replied. "I'll go."
I no longer waited for them to answer. I still can’t believe it. It can’t be. I hate it. She didn’t leave here? Am I just dreaming? I know for sure that I am not asleep. I felt her. I even smelled her.
Am I just hallucinating?
I decided not to tell it to my family yet. Not today, I still want to know her whereabouts before I consider her a treat to us. It would be good for her to be my sister's friend so I could watch her, she could watch her. And one more thing, I need to know her. I heard her say those three words. It always appeared in my dream, in my past.
I didn’t grow up as a vampire. I grew up normal or just what I thought. I was a human when I was a kid - real kid. My parents sealed my blood along with my brothers and sisters to save us from the ancient war.
When I was 18, that was the first time I found out about vampires. I remember how scared I was while being chased by a vampire and I thought that was my last day. But the bite actually made me remember who I was when I woke up.
I will never forget that night, because I heard those three words coming from the voice of a girl and it always haunts me every night.
Is she that girl? But that was a long time ago. I can’t even remember the girl and can’t even say the reason why she appears in my dream. Maybe she was a part of me.
I went straight to the admin office where the school's CCTV monitors were located. Stan opened up to me as he focused on the computer, behind him were the large monitors connected to all the CCTV cameras of the entire university. Stan Fear is my cousin. His family and my family always moved together so he also moved here to school with me.
Stan started working as one of the admin and was assigned to guard the school and it was our advantage because we have someone to look at us inside the university. He monitors the CCTV, it was easy for him to manipulate things that flow through current. That’s his gift.
That’s why I asked him to check out the CCTV in the cafeteria. I want to make sure if Cassandra didn't really leave.
"You only visit me when you need something," he said. “Why do you need the footage?” he said as someone pressed the keyboard. I approached the monitor and looked at the footage from the cafeteria after he adjusted the time.
The camera was not focused on the table where we were staying. I watched the entrance, I saw her enter and was waiting if she came out alone but no. My sister is not lying, she did not come out. I only saw her come out when she was with Van and Via. I know she’s with them because I can see two blurry shadows. That’s how we appear on camera, we become blurred shadows.
"Who's the girl?" he asked. "Do you like her?"
"No," he said quickly. "She saw me last night with Van fighting lowkie."
"She's a threat."
I shook my head. “I am not sure. Don’t tell them yet, let me handle it. I still need to know something.”
"What, is it worth lying for?" He eyed me.
“I still can’t figure it out. She disappeared right in front of me. ” I told him all the details.
"You gotta be kidding me!"
“I’m not. So can you please monitor her every day and when you find out that she’s a threat, report her. ”
“One thing, I would like to get her profi ---“
“Done that,” he smirked. “Cassandra Yiel. 18 years old. March 28, 1995, and #000 Heaven Street, oh that’s weird. She was accepted here with just that information. She must be something.”
“There is nothing else and where the hell is heaven street. Does that even exist? ” I said, frustrated.
“That’s all I could find, Vlad. If you want to know, go ask her. ”
Vladimir’s POVI didn’t confront her. I was waiting for the right time so I just observed her. For the last few days, she became close to my sister Via. I warned Via about being too close to her and she told me she would eventually change Cassy’s memories in due time. She just really enjoys her company because she is so smart. She even told me that Cassy didn’t believe all the rumors we spread. Somehow, in the last hundred years she met someone again who she wanted to be friends with."I feel at peace when I am with her, like I've known her before." I remembered Via said in which my other sister Vanna agreed by saying, "Sometimes we meet the reincarnation of the people we've met before."I didn't argue anymore. Usually, when Vanna speaks we just listen to her and we always
Vladimir’s POVWe are in the living room. We were watching a series. Via kept on watching Vampire Diaries telling us how much she loves Damon. She seems to want to meet and write the Vampire Diaries to tell her something true.Mom and Dad kept on laughing at her. They’re both cool. Dad is actually a police detective, he mostly focuses on rare cases like us, the disappearance of people and the corpses found with vampire bites. He tried his best to divert the truth from them. Sounds unfair, but we can’t risk our life. While my Mom is a doctor in a hospital for vampires. She is the head of research that studies vampires and how we can survive the modern world.Van was sipping blood, while I was reading a book when Vanna came out of the kitchen. She brought her sketch pad and then s
Vladimir’s POV"Can you at least pretend just for a while," Cassandra started, as she sat across from the telescope.She was already done naming all the constellations, stars, and galaxies she’d seen through the telescope. She got tired of blabbering while I just watched her.Though, okay that’s a lie.I didn’t just watch her, I talked to her and for the first time we actually found something that we could talk to. I always loved the universe and never found someone who loves it just as much as I do.Earlier, we talked with sense, not that she’s been talking nonsense since the first time I met her but this is the only time we had a topic that we both like. Weird, I’ve felt like I’ve seen through her soul.She even told me all the stories of the constellations, each of them though I already know them.
Vladimir’s POV"She got a tattoo," Via said as she entered my room.It took her days to actually say that. I’ve been waiting like crazy because I’m dying to know. I did nothing but wait and cook for her everyday. I don't know, that woman is getting used to me cooking for her. She even wanted me to cook not only for her. Actually, she always gives the things I cook to the children at church."And," I said impatiently. "What covenant?"Then, she’s a witch—“It’s no symbol of covenant,” Via dropped it. She shook his head. “I’ve searched for it. Stan did and so did Mom. It’s not a symbol of a covenant or anything, not even a symbol of a wolf, ”she sighed. "It's just a tattoo of broken wings."“So, it’s nonsense?” I asked.“Yeah, sh
Vladimir’s POV The people believed the so-called epidemic and some of them even rushed to the nearest hospital to ask for a prescription. There’s no medicine to cure the virus, and no prevention so they also didn’t get it because normal doctors are still studying it - what they thought was a disease when it’s not. Though, there is really a cure and it’s our blood. When bitten by a vampire, using the vampire's blood it will heal but when the virus spreads only the human blood is the cure but that would make the human a vampire. The whole place declared no business for days because of what happened. They were so afraid so they bought a lot of stocks and hid inside their houses. I don't know how long people will do that but it's still a good decision especially and we're not sure when the half-bloods will start. They had better stay in their homes first. Mom and Dad were not yet
Vladimir’s POVI tried calling Mom and Dad but they didn't answer their phone. Van is patrolling the town together with Stan and the other vampires from our house. Via and Vanna are in the living room, talking about her visions. I told her about the shooting star today and the meteor shower next month but she told me that that wasn’t connected to half-bloods.There is something that will happen to the world but they still haven’t figured it out.What they have actually figured out is the war between half-bloods. They already know the hide-outs of the other half-bloods but they are still figuring out where their king’s hide-out is.It will happen in two days, so we started warning the people in the way they would believe.The Ruin already controlled the media, the police and even the palace because hide-outs of half-bloods were scattered all over the country.&
Vladimir’s POVI was spacing out. I can’t clearly think when I’ve reached the council but I’ve tried my best not to think of it for a while to focus on what’s happening.My Dad and Mom were already standing at the front gate waiting for us. We were joined by Stan and his brother as well as their parents who already went inside to lock the system. Vanna was also inside with the other owl.We left some guards outside the area to patrol while we locked the gate. Dad made a barrier out of fire to lock us from the outside and I saw him a while ago putting some fire on the ground. I freeze the inside of the area."Brother," Via reached for the box. When I opened it, it was blood from a human. “Mom bought some from the blood bank. We need it, you need it. ”I nodded and drank a bag of blood from a human. I felt the effect of it on my veins as
Vladimir’s POVAs the snowflakes fall, the half-blood runs towards us. Van and I both run towards the front door. As soon as the door closed, the arrows kept flying outside. We waited for them to come inside but it was only Ashlon who went inside. His companions were left outside, some of them were already lying on the floor. The explosion of planted bombs outside has also begun.I saw Dad draw his sword towards Ashlon. Mom and Van started to fight with the remaining guards while Via and I ran towards the center of the council. I have not been able to see the incident yet.I started freezing my way up to the tower. I know Stan and the others are all standing in the center while I go up the tower. It was my job after all, to go and wait inside the tower. I never used my full power before, I never thought I would use it.But they told me the great risk I will be taking if I will
