Claire's point of view
I have been sent down again to help Myrnin with something he could do himself. I sigh and walk down the steps to his lab. Inside Myrnin is busily preparing another blue liquid and is bubbling away in a beaker. I have had a very bad experience with that. I have the scar on my neck and a non stop ache to prove it.
"Ah Claire, your job today is to sort out these letters. I can't be bothered to do and Amelie is much too busy. And don't tell me to go and ask Oliver for it. He's a pain. Now come on, hurry up." Myrnin said, going back to his experiment.
I dumped my bag next to the door and started sorting through the letters. They were dusty which indicated that Myrnin probably never opens his mail. If he were where I live – Wolverhampton in England- he wouldn't stay in his house for long… but he'd probably kill the re-possession guys when they try to take his stuff.
I got through about 30 letters. 10 were from Amelie, 3 were weirdly from him and 5 were from complete strangers and the others are hate letters sent to Oliver. I had just got through another 10 from Amelie and Oliver, when one from Amelie caught my eye.
I opened the envelope and pulled out a dog eared letter. It is in French so I could only pick out bits of it. I look up to see what Myrnin's doing. Busy adding stuff to the life threatening blue liquid, I rolled my eyes.
I got out my phone and put in the French on the translator. It translated and I saw it was from when Amelie and Myrnin had first met… which was about 1,500 years ago. (By the way that's Amelie's age I'm guessing.) Waaay before I was born.
"Myrnin how did you and Amelie meet?" I asked curious. Myrnin shrugged. I sighed. Trust him not to know how his only friend and him had met. Myrnin sighed and turned round.
"I met her in 1109 and she was only about 120 years old then. She was sneaking out of the house because Bishop had banned her from drinking blood for a week until she started being nicer to him."
Flashback ... 1109
I was walking through the streets with nothing to do. I had killed 2 women and drained them and left them to rot in the streets. I had terrorized everyone except that seemingly rich place. I heard a sound of footsteps on the ground and turned round. I came a few metres apart from another vampire. I'm thrilled. Finally someone the same as me.
I recognized the female vampire as the beautiful Amelie Bishop (A.N: I'm guessing that's her second name. If you have suggestions for her second name please put them in your review.) Her once ice blue eyes are crimson red and her delicate fangs are down. I had no idea she had become a vampire. I had only met her when he was 14 and she had been human then.
She spotted me and lunged at me. I'm a little stronger than her and held her off off while she tried to get her fangs into my bloodstream. She growled and scratched - that hurt - and struggled. I grabbed a sweet smelling man and bit him. Sweet smelling blood came out, and Amelie stopped growling and scratching and looked at the man. She ran at him and sank hr fangs into his neck.
I dusted myself off and cooled my skin - it stings after the woman scratched me - and drank some of the water.
"Who are you?" a dainty voice said from behind. I turned around and saw the man laying motionless on the ground. Amelie however had calmed down. Her eyes turned back to ice blue and her fangs retracted.
"Myrnin, my lady. And may I ask what your name is?" I asked politely, taking her hand and kissing it.
"Amelie. Your such a gentleman. Unlike my father." she looked ever so sad. I feel for her.
"What's wrong with your father? and I must admit, I never you changed. I thought you were going to stay human." I said. Amelie looked ready to cry and I feared I had said the wrong thing.
"I'm sorry If I upset you. Please don't cry." I said. A tear fell from her eye then more came. Without thinking I hugged her. She wrapped her arms round me and cried.
"I'm so sorry." Amelie said wiping her eyes with a tissue. "Yes I was going to stay human. But after my father killed my mother and my beloved horse, Crystal, he said he was going to kill me. But then he changed his mind and said that he wasn't going to have any family left. So he changed me into this and now he's starving me for a week until I be nicer to him." she finished and started crying again.
I wondered what to say. I didn't want to make her mad and I didn't want to make her cry more. So I hugged her.

"So I gave her my adress and she came round every day. I gave her blood and helped her cope and we became friends. Then Bishop found out about it and it wasn't pretty."
"What happened to her and you?" I asked curious.
"Well Amelie got taken away and locked in a cell. He kept her in there for another week and I went down there few times. She was a right wreck."
Flashback ... 1109
I sneaked quietly down the stairs. Amelie's father had changed a security guard into a vampire so he could hear me. I got in the back entrance and very silently crept towrds Amelie's cell. I peaked round the corner and saw the guard. 3 blood bag lay on the table besides him. I heard a tiny whine and crept towards her cell.
Inside my beautiful friend is a wreck. Her eyes are deep crimson and her fangs are out. She had been biting and drinking her own blood in hope she wouldn't completely starve. The latest bite mark on her wrist had just healed. Amelie is sitting on the floor. She bit herself again. Vampire blood did nothing to quench her thirst.
"Amelie." I said quietly. She looked up and got on her bed. I siliently opened her door and brought out human blood bag I got from the hospital.
"I'm really thirsty Myrnin. I'm going to die I'm sure of it." She said, drinking her blood from her wrist. I pulled it away with ease. I'm a little stronger than her. I bit into the bag and brought it to Amelie lips. After tasting the blood she grabbed it and drained it in seconds.
"I'm still thirsty." She said louder. I put my finger to her lips.
"Shh. I can't be here, you have to be quiet." I said quietly. She relaxed a bit.
"Your a vampire?" she asked, looking at my neck.
"Yes." I nodded. "Your a wreck. I see why you hate your Father so much." I said. Amelie ignored me and picked up the bag and tore it open. Then she licked the blood inside.
"I'm going to get you some more. Don't worry you won't starve." I promised and left.
"Myrnin please don't go. Father comes and I fear what he does when he sees me. He can tell the difference." she said, desperately. I came back and gave her a hug.
"Hide the bag and just act normal. Yes? I promise I won't be long." I said and left. Behind me I heard a tiny whine and a thud. I looked back and saw Amelie licking the now clear bag sitting on the hard floor. I felt really sorry for her.
