Hang on…Hang on.
I was losing conscious.
But then something was put to my lips, and Danny was whispering "Come on babe, take it." He was pressing something harder to my lips, it was soft and smooth. I followed his instructions, I opened my lips and took a big gulp of what ever it was, flowing into my mouth was a delicious, liquid that burst into my mouth as soon as I started to suck. I stopped short when I realized what it was and jerked my head away. Blood. Danny was giving me blood and I liked it. What was happening to me?
I heard Danny's sharp intake of breath, so I whipped my lips off and turned to face him.
"Why the hell did you do that Danny?" I burst out because I didn't know what was happening at all. And I didn't want to know. But I had to find out.
"Isa , listen there's no easy way to say this but-" Shannon was staring but got interrupted by Jacob.
"You were burning up because-" Jacob also couldn't finish either.
"You were cramping because-" Lexi was telling me something but she was interrupted by Nathan.
"Isa you're a -" Nathan couldn't finish.
"You're a Vampire, Iz…
"You need blood to keep alive and if you don't have it you will burn up and have bad cramming, so I cut my wrist and gave you some blood. Because I don't want you to be hurt. I so sorry Izzy, that this is happening." Danny had tears filling up his eyes and rolling silently down his cheeks.
"Are you sure?" I asked because I didn't sound real. They all nodded.
"What else dose it say about my, eh, a vampire diet?" I truly didn't want to drink blood from anyone, but I didn't want to die either. So if I took small samples of human blood or I would take animal blood. Because there was no way that I was killing people just for my own thirst. I was not a murderer and I was not going to change that.
"Well, the legend which you got the information, that Selene has chosen you to be one of her own, also where it says you can control the five elements. It says that two days after the presses of being chosen you will begin the transformation to turn into a Vampire." Nathan was saying with confidence. But none of them looked scared. "The transformation lasts for three hours and in that time, you will be burning, cramping and having the desire to drink. Drink blood. You can eat and drink human food, but you still have to have some blood.
"Well, I am certainly not killing to cure my own needs, so I think going to the woods is the best bet and see if I have enough will power to do a diet like that. Or I really don't know what to do. So in about two and a half hours I will be a vampire. What will I look like?" If I looked like a vampire I would never have the same life again, not that being a vampire was not cool. But if I looked like one I could not act human. Or ever share human emotions, ever again.
"Well, if this is correct, you'll look the exact same as you do now. But prettier if that's possible." Shannon was saying that I was already beautiful as a goddess and could never get prettier but it was true.
"Thanks Shannon." I said blushing, at least I feel myself doing that but I was not sure if I could not blush, scarlet ever again, never feel the burn coming to my cheeks and getting all embarrassed. But there were some side effects. "Only saying what's true." Shannon murmured. I could also tell that my senses were a lot sharper as I could her a cover being fluttered in the cold wind, my eye sight caught things two small or distant to figure out, I could smell that Lexi had used a little impulse, New York, touch was I could feel the tiny cracks in Danny's hand, where I bit him. There was a small scarlet ribbon around his palm.
"How would I look different." I was curious.
"Well, you'll have nearly translucent skin, pure white, you'll have crimson eyes if you drink human blood, but if you have animal blood in your system your eyes will go the same as they are now." Jacob was giving pointers. He was spearing calmly, for what he was saying.
"Your hair will grow faster, so like a millimetre everyday, it will go a few shades darker, but lighten up to the palest gold's when in the sun."
"Talking about the sun, and other traditional things about Vampires are all true. If you go out in the sunlight, you will burn and Holy water and stakes and stuff work. Its good we live in Alaska as there is hardly any sun. " Each vampire was given a special gift, one that no other vampire could ever do. There has been some like manipulating emotions, sharing your thoughts with other people, cutting off peoples scenes or visualizing things and making them come true, so what do you think yours is?"
"I seriously don't know, but what I do know is that I can read minds, burn peoples souls, yeah Nathan I so sorry for what I did to you!" They all looked at me with blank expressions. "You know on my first day, when I looked into your eyes, I was burning your mind, but I think I could do a lot more than that, if I tried because I didn't even know I had powers then."
This is really creepy, but I can't believe that I am friends with a vampire. That would be in a cool way, because Isa's amazing, even without powers. I just wish that I could be one to. Because it sounds awesome, and this is only the start. I really like Isabel, she's a really good friend, but then I hate the way Victoria's messing with her, just because she's pretty. She's dealt with every pretty girl so far to get them out of competition for guys. Danny is her ex, that's how he is with us. A couple of weeks ago, we all found Danny underneath a tree, bloody. His top was scrapes, he was silently crying and when he heard us approaching he looked up startled, by the noise and we could see that he had small cut on his cheek, not to deep though. We helped him, and he became on of our friends and joined our group, making us a bit more popular, he was like the damn hottest thing at any school. Well that was in a friendly way because I was already going out with Nathan. But he would always stand up for girls if Victoria and her gang came over. He really likes Isa even with her being mythological and all. But she is sweet, and fierce when she can be. Shannon's mind had been telling me a lot ,hmm. I would have to say thanks to her, because of all the compliments she gave me.
"Thanks, Shannon." Once again everyone of them had a blank expression. "I read your mind by accident, so I just wanted to say thanks for the stuff you were thinking about me it was really nice." Shannon bowed her head and flushed scarlet, I embarrassed her but it was good that I said it.
"You read her mind?"
"Yes I said I could and I was in Shannon's mind. Let me just tell you something, Shannon you have one of the sweetest minds I've come across so far." As I said that Nathan bent down and softly kissed her on the cheeks, making her skin a lovely appetising colour, I could just imagine…
I tore myself from that thought because I would never hurt them, not dramatic or a small cut, I would not hurt the people I cared about. Nathan was murmuring something into her ear, to low for any human ears to catch, "You're beautiful, and I love you…" I blocked out the rest of it because I would need to give the lovebirds some privacy. I looked at Danny with sad eyes, a shock crossed over his face as my knees collapsed under me and I fell to the ground.
Every thing around me was different, I was outside by a big oak tree, a small river came from the south, it was like somewhere of a postcard, there where three female figures by the big oak, one of them at the front leading, they all had hair like a ravens wing. Opposite them was a smaller girl with the shorter black hair down to her waist, it looked like they where fighting, but I could not be sure, I only caught glimpse of the speech. "What are you doing here!" The blonde one asked, her voice sounded like mine.
I began to put the pieces together. I suddenly got it, I was the blonde girl, the other girls on the opposite side of me where my sister, Gina in the front, Meredith on the right and Jane on the left. Three other figure came into the scene. They where all boys, body builder by the size of their mussels, they where hunky, I saw five other figure huddled in the corner of the field, the first one, the one at the front was Danny, then by his sides Nathan and Jacob, with Shannon and Lexi where behind them out of danger.
While I stood in the middle of it all, the one in the most danger, it was true, my skin was translucent, my hair was a few shades darker than it was before, I couldn't see my eyes because I had some cool shades on. "We came here to do some unfinished business that we didn't finish three years ago."
Gina was saying, things where happening to quickly for me to realize what was happening, but when it stopped I could see that I was on the floor, moving my body weakly, trying to get up to protect myself, but I could see that I was struggling, Gina, Meredith and Jane where laughing and going over the body builders like a rash, always touching them with one part of their body. In the shadows I could see that Danny was trying to get up to help me but he couldn't. Things went like a blur and when it stopped Gina was on top of me holding what looked like a massive, heavy knife, but I knew it was a stake, she raised the blade and…
The vision went black, cutting off everything around me leaving me in a pool of darkness. I stay like that until I could feel in the real world someone was shaking my shoulder and begging me to wake up. Thinking that maybe I was dead, so I slowly opened my heavy eyelids, to see Danny kneeling beside me, shaking my shoulder. He didn't notice I was curious, until I said, "Well, I think I've found what I can do!" His head snapped up and he looked me straight in the eye.
"God, I'm glad your alive, I thought you where dead. Again" As he spoke the world seemed to shimmer and I was lost again.
I was in a beautiful meadow, there was a figure sat on a rock, her hair was platinum blonde like mine only a bit longer, when she turned to look at me I noticed something familiar, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. She had the same figure as me, but was a bit taller, she had the mouth as me, but a bit more peachy, she was wearing a long white dress that showed off her shoulders, there was a pink scar there, just like my mothers.
Now I know why this person was familiar, it was my, "Mum!" I said, filled with love. My mum smiled, as dazzling as a goddess' smile, she gracefully made her way over to me, I met her halfway, stepping into her arms. She squeezed me and I felt like I was in heaven, but we may already be there, in the cloudy meadow. I was trying to figure out what was happening, was it real or not, was I dead or was my mum alive.
"Mum, I missed you so much!" I sobbed as I buried my face in her chest, she held me tighter. "Shh, it's ok, I missed you to Daughter, my favourite Daughter Isabel. You've grown so much in these three years. Where did you get this?" She pointed to the crescent shaped scar on the left side of my face. "Um, you know after you, uh, left us. Gina, Meredith and Jane thought I killed you, so they tormented me a bit, they broke my arm, twisted my ankle, slashed my face and cut my chest, just like Jason did with you!" I lifted my top to show my mum the scar that Meredith formed on my chest, and told her the same story, from where she died to the part where Ian found me. By the end of it my mother looked horrified, her face was full of grief, which got worse as I told her that they where coming on Saturday.
"Mum, why am I here?" I was curious.
"You're here because Selene has chosen you to be one of her own, she has given you the greatest gifts, seeing the future, seeing and speaking to the dead in the after world and the command of the five elements. Unfortunately Selene has also done the same with your sisters, your horrible sisters. I am here because you have come here to look for some answers, I also know that there is great danger ahead Daughter and Selene has given you the responsibility of making things right again. Your sisters have done enough damage to the world without being an immortal and having powers. Selene has gifted you so you can stop this Darkness. There is much of it Daughter, be careful, I would hate it if anything bad happened to you. You have chosen light and by that I mean good. I wish you luck. Bye, Isabel!" My mother gave me one more gentle squeeze before she lightly touched her lips to my forehead, and then she drifted away, soon she was no longer in sight.
