|Palesa was just strolling through this large building, feeling pulled to it, not sure what it even was yet, since she was still new to town. She had passed a few people, and it clued her in that this was the vampire hideout of the city, and so she would probably start hanging out her more often when Adrian was busy with something that had nothing to do with her. She started to sing a few songs from Evanescence, and she twirled like a ballerina, which earned her a few odd looks as she passed the few vampires that resided there.|
Her mind was formulating a new story idea, since she had been tossing the idea of starting a book of some sort, probably supernatural, since she has such a large knowledge on the supernatural genre, and so her mind was set. Her book would be able a lycanthrope of some sort, probably a wolf or a fox, and it would be their fight to find themselves a life in their new, hectic life. The main character’s name would be Lorna, and she would have one hell of a time trying to get through life without dying.
Palesa’s stomach growled as she thought of the blood that she needed to stay awake for the next day of school, since this day was a Sunday, and she had had the past two weeks off for Christmas break. Her face flushed at the thought of the night of the Christmas party. Adrian and her had had their first kiss at the most perfect night, not mattering that earlier in the night she had gotten in the most embarrassing fight in the world. She still hated that werewolf, and probably always will, but she gave her a small thanks, because if that hadn’t happened, Adrian probably would have never confessed his need for her to be in his life, and she wouldn’t have given it back.
A week later, she had been forced to stand in front of a board of the vampire elders, and had to go through the most humiliating scolding ever, and she had hated every second of it, but she dealt with it, because if she hadn’t, the leader of them would have executed her on the spot in the most bloody and painful of ways. But Esa wouldn’t stand for that, would not leave Adrian alone in the world that he had only just lately found worthy of dealing with, and so she dealt with it, and went back to Meander not long after. Adrian had taken a part of his vacation to go with her, but he hadn’t been allowed in the Chamber of Judgment, since he was a werewolf. And that was a whole new level of scolding.
The Council of Vampires could not believe that one of their own kind had fallen for their worse of enemies, the werewolves. But she couldn’t explain thoroughly enough to say that they may be werewolves, but they were still human, and had the same emotions, and still cared as the ones of the race of the vampire did after they were changed. They all started out human, or, most of them did, and their emotions from their previous life never changed, whether or not other vampires wanted to believe that of their enemies.
They also didn’t get how she could get past the smell of wolf, and to the real scent of them, the scent that everyone else gets whenever close enough to them for it. They didn’t believe it either, but she still explained it to them. She tried her hardest, for she loved Adrian, and would do anything to get him to be understood by more people, and accepted and cared for. He needed more then just her to uphold him through life, and so she tried, but failed miserably.
Palesa left Italy with only a warning and her life. But her name and face was now known as the vampire that loved a wolf, and someone that almost doomed the vampire race to war with their dreadful archenemies the werewolves, and so she had started to be shun by her own kind whenever she was near, but she was able to live with it if Adrian was by her side, as he usually was, except for now.
“What are you doing here you stupid witch?” A voice snapped, stopping Palesa short, mid-twirl and mid note. She stopped and put both feet on the ground strong, and she stood at her full height to look up at the very much taller woman. The woman had screaming crimson red hair, and sea-blue eyes, which were now piercing down into Esa’s eyes unnervingly. This woman hadn’t been a part of the council, but she was there in the room through the three daylong scolding. She had not been on her side on the believing that werewolves were people, and that the fight hadn’t been her fault to begin with, a true enemy of Esa’s.
“I live in Meander, thank very much. So I’ll just move along now so I don’t get in your way,” Palesa said sarcastically and boredly before she pushed her way past the tall woman. She only got a few feet before she was flipped into the wall, and the woman had her knee against Esa’s stomach. “You do not belong here, and neither does your stupid wolf. You need to leave immeditaly; you lame excuse of a vampire. Gabriel should have never changed you when he did. He talks about you all the time, and how good you are in bed. I’m proving him wrong on the point that you are the best he’s had,” the woman said before striking her across the face.
Palesa somehow got her legs up and was able to push the woman away with both feet in the woman’s stomach, and as she dusted herself off, she hissed at the woman. “I don’t give a shit about Gabriel anymore. I left him, not the other way around. You can screw him all you want you stupid mutt of a vampire. Yeah, I was put before the council for almost starting a war, but at least I stood up for myself in the face of a wolf that hated me, and started the fight, not the other way around either.” Esa kicked her in the stomach, and then glared.
“Not only did you fight a werewolf, but your lover of a werewolf was watching, how embarrassing is that? Not only are you in love with a werewolf, but also he’s okay with you fighting his own kind? What’s up with that? You really are a work of art, and pick those with so much trouble,” the woman spat at Esa before standing and imposing over her again.
“Just leave me the hell alone!” Esa yelled at her and turned away, heading towards the exit, but was slammed into the ground, and she started to pass out, since her skin was just punctured and blood was starting to seep out. Her blood count was already low, but this just forced it lower, and she knew if someone didn’t show up with a bloodbag or something of the like, she might fall into a very violent bloodlust, or she would die. Neither would make Adrian happy in anyway, so she tried to make a last movement towards the door to get away from the crazy woman.
The woman stepped on Esa, pushing her heel through the skin of her back and stepped on her twice before walking past, laughing evilly. Palesa somehow managed to get her phone from her pocket, and ignoring the broken screen as she dialed Adrian’s number. The phone rang through, but went to voicemail quickly, meaning he wasn’t able to pick up at the moment, and the sound/vibrations were too distracting for what he was doing. The next number she dialed was Jack’s which, thankfully, rang through and was picked up quickly.
“Jack, please come to the vampire hideout. Damn vampires and their wills to kill me, or try to get me to lose control on my bloodlust. I need some blood Jack, please come here and get it to me. I’m gonna try to leave the building so no one else can have a try at me in closed quarters.” Palesa barely waited for his answer before she flipped the cell closed and pushed herself up against the wall and slowly made her way to standing straight.
When she got there, she was panting and had started to bleed faster, which caused her pupils to dilate with the need for blood as it grew stronger. “Damn redheads and their needs to kill me and or humiliate me,” Esa grumbled as she stood away from the wall, her hand resting on it as she made her slow way down the hall she had only just been twirling down previously. It seemed only too long, but she finally made her way out.
