Hey this story just came to me from the top of my head, so i decided to start writing! Hope you like!

I don't own VA! :(

Chapter 1

Rose POV

on pg. 451 of Spirit Bound:

It took me a moment to grasp what happened. In tossing my hair, I'd exposed my neck- and the bite. (just so you know, it was the bite Adrian had given her. sorry... proceed) I tried not to blush again, knowing I had nothing to feel embarrassed about. I pushed the hair back

"That's none of your business" I said, then tossed my hair back to cover it.

"Of course" Dimitri replied. His guardian mask was in place, so I couldn't read his expression.

I stared at him.. no, I glared. He looked at me, concerned, and said, "Rose your are going to pop a vein. Relax."

I did... I don't know why I was that mad at him, but then again.. I was shadow kissed so I tended to have "mad phases".

I started to leave, but as I turned towards the door, thunder boomed, and it was pouring down rain. "Ugh.." I said. How was I going to leave this place? I want to get away from Dimitri! I'm still upset with him!

"Looks like your gonna have to be in here a while longer, Rose" Dimitri's guardian laughed. "Shut up" I replied, throwing my rolled up eclair wrappings at him.

I grabbed a chair, and sat in front of Dimitri. "I heard you did the best in your class on trials" Dimitri stated, trying to make conversation.

"Yeah.. Plus they made my test harder then anyone else" I thought back to that day.. It was easy, but still hard without my mentor there to cheer me on..

"Yeah I was there." Dimitri's other guardian, Peter, said with fascination, "Never seen anything like it. It was amazing!"

Dimitri looked at me with pride,"I knew you would do great... What do you mean they made your test harder then anyone else? Actually, i know why." he smiled, "But how?"

So I told him every detail of how I did my trials. "You know what? I think Christian taped it.. Why? I don't know. But he did. So, if your desperate, ask him and he will lend you the tape." Dimitri nodded.

He was just about to say something, when some random moroi kid came by (drenched with rain), and handed my a soggy letter. I said thanks, but he was kinda in his own world, looking around with a dazed expression. He left and I read the letter.

Dearest Rose,

So you know, my brother and I have decided to go strigoi. Isn't it wonderful? Oh and another thing, we are coming to get you, to turn you.. Even if it means killing anyone you love who gets in the way. you will come by choice, obviously, because if you don't, we have guardians who will take you by force if you don't cooperate. And if you are to be taken by force, those guardians will have the job of killing anyone you love anyways!

Yours Truly,


I folded the paper back up, and stared into empty space, shaking my head. V.D. Victor Dashkov. How could he do this? What was his purpose on turning strigoi? What does he want from me? What is he planning?

"Rose" Dimitri questioned, "Are you okay?"

I didn't answer. I'm so confused.. I let the man out of prison, and now he wants me... dead? Or rather, undead?


I ignored him. I have to talk to Lissa. I promised her I would let her in on everything. No secrets. But I don't want Dimitri to know about this.. And if Lissa knows, then so does Dimitri.


I looked at him. His face had concern written all over it. I made up my mind. I'm going to tell Lissa.. even if it means Dimitri gets to know as well.

"What's wrong? What does the letter say?" He asked. I stared at him for a long time, and handed the letter to him.

He read it. Once. Twice. Three times. Then he locked eyes with me.

"You have to tell Lissa" he said. I nodded.

"Yeah.." my voice was weak, "I will. Right now." But as I got up, Dimitri said, "I won't let that happen to you."

The look on his face reminded me of the old Dimitri. The one that love me.. But then I remembered he didn't anymore. His love faded.

For that second, I believed him. for that second...

Okay, I know it's short, but I want to know if anyone likes it before I write longer chapters.. So, what? Is it great? awful? awesome? garbage? Lemme know! Please review! :)
