"Alright I know you're the Prince and all, but that doesn't give you the right to freak girls out by telling them that they're pregnant when they can't even remember having sex! It certainly does not give the right to go changing people's names! Further more how the hell are you not human!" I screamed at Prince Ivory as I quickly stood up from his very comfortable floor. I was pissed, I know I shouldn't be; the last time I was, bad things happened. This time wasn't any different from the last time I had lost my temper and as quickly as I stood up, I fell back to the floor. "I also thought you said I could get up!"
"Calm down, before you hurt yourself! You're right about everything! I know it doesn't give me the right to do these things, but I only did them because I love you!" Prince Ivory yelled back at me.
"Love? How can you say you love me when you just met me? How can you say it was love's fault that I got brought here against my will? Is it love's manipulating voice that you took me away from my life? The life that I was trying to make on my own. The life where I was going to be independent. Did love hand you the right to take away my childhood dream of being on my own?" I calmed down as hot tears streamed down my face. An odd feeling was in the air, one that I liked and didn't like at the same time.
"Just because you don't love me doesn't mean I don't love you. Just because you have never met me doesn't mean that I've never met you. I've watched you as a child playing with your brothers as your red hair flew behind you. I knew that your father had been drafted for the army. I even saw the man who murdered your father. I saw that same man come and kill your family. More importantly I saw you get revenge. I watched in amazement as you swiftly killed him with the harvesting sickle. I felt your pain as you were forced to start a new life with the burden of your old one hanging heavily on your fragile shoulders. I have known you, just not personally. I grew to love you without ever meeting with you," the Prince said as he helped me up. I saw his eyes at this point and notices they were the most beautiful color amber I ever saw. They were full of honesty and love. I finally understood.
"How can you have known me that long? How could I have never noticed you in my life until this day?" I asked quietly.
"Because I am a vampire; I've been around a lot longer than it looks. I'm actually a hundred or so years older than I look. How else do you think I was able to watch you for so long without you noticing?" Ivory explained as I thought about how any other day and any other guy telling me this, well, who knows how I would have responded.
"So I basically have to change my name because you're a vampire?"
"Not just because I'm a vampire, but more of the fact that I'm giving you a new life. A life where you don't need your burden. Eri has died, she is no more, and nobody will remember her. From her ashes a new being emerges. One that will allow her to have her dream and more. Eri is no more, her body no longer human. Her body is a vampire and her name is Valentine." his voice sounds so magical. I realize that there is a reason for this. He is actually using magic on me!
