Yes, another story...If you read my old profile info, then you would know that I have had this idea for a while now, but never found the right characters or anything to go with it. Then I recently thought of the characters :D And plugged them into this story, and so far it's going pretty smoothly. I'm still working out the kinks of chapter 1 (I've rewritten it like 3 times now...O.o ugh) but it's finished if I don't change any more of it. Might post it later, probably tomorrow, depending on when my dad's friend decides to get the hell out of my house so I can sleep.

Anywhoo...as I said, I've had this idea for a while now. I'm still working things out in it. I keep changing things and direction, but the prologue is the one thing that never seems to change, haha. So here it is. I will try to get back to Carpe Diem (no promises, though) and Sintax soon, along with Riddle Me This (I have part of the next chapter written but I had to make a decision and I just never got around to it...plus, finding the right riddle and proverbs are hard! Especially the riddles!) hehe. So yeah...

If there is anything you really want me to update, message me or review. Seriously. I only update stuff with reviews. The more the reviews, the more I want to update the story. That's why some stories fizzle and other's done, I'm just not motivated.

And ugh dad's friend needs to leave! UGH.

Oh if I turn this into a series (which, right now, I'm not) I will call the series The Mortal Vampire and the title of this book will probably be changed, haha.

Anywho...

Let's get started, shall we?


The Mortal Vampire

By: Averick

Summary: When the vampires came out of hiding and announced themselves to the world, other supernatural creatures decided it was time to stop hiding as well. Chaos strung through towns and citites. Hundreds and thousands of people were killed. Now, ten years later, scientists have been able to create one miracle, one last, desperate hope for mankind; the mortal vampire, a cross between a human and a vampire after a series of DNA injections and tests and experimentations. All of the test subjects died, except for fifteen-year-old Atty Juniper. Now nineteen, he is the last hope for mankind, using his crafty new abilities to take down vampires whenever he can. Being a vampire killer certainly makes it hard to be dating a vampire, but Atty's doing just that with eighty-three-year-old vampire Mars Montoya. Follow Atty and Mars as they fight their way through death, blood, defeat, and love. (Sorry for the bad summary, haha...I think it sounds okay 'til the end but yeah)


Prologue

"Atty, let go of Mommy's leg, okay, sweetheart?"

Eight-year-old Atty looked up at his mother, his green eyes swimming with unshed tears. "No, Mommy, please," he whimpered, clinging to her leg. "I'll be good, I swear! Please! Don't put me away! Don't let them take me!"

Atty's mom looked down at him sadly. "It's for the best, Atty, please try to understand…" She carefully pried Atty's small yet firm hands away from her pant legs.

"Mommy!" Atty protested, tears spilling down his cheeks. He tried to latch himself onto her again, but strong arms came around him and pulled him away. "Mommy! Daddy!"

His father stood next to his mother, watching with stony eyes. His father had never been a truly emotional man, but Atty could recall many times the two of them had laughed together and had thrown the ball together…so many things, and yet this was happening to him now, and he didn't understand why.

"I'm sorry! Whatever I did, I'm sorry! Please!" he cried, struggling against the firm hold on him.

"We'll take good care of him," a smooth voice reassured the parents. "We thank you for doing this."

"Don't thank us," Atty's father snapped sharply. "We wouldn't do this if we didn't have to. He's our son. You better watch out for him. Don't you dare hurt him."

"We would never do such a foul thing," the person said.

Atty clawed at their hold but his eight-year-old strength was nothing compared to theirs. "No! Mommy, Daddy, please! I'll be good! I love you!"

"We love you too, sweetie," his mother said tearfully, grabbing at his father's arm somewhat shakily. His father was a strong man and he wrapped his arms around her tightly. Atty suddenly wanted to be in the middle of that hug, wanted it with everything he had, but he couldn't break free. Why was this happening? What had he done that was so wrong?

Atty's father grabbed his mother's arm and turned. The two of them began walking away.

And Atty was pulled in the other direction.

"No! Please! Mommy! Daddy! No!"

But if they heard his cries, they didn't show it. They disappeared from view and he was left crying in the hands of a stranger.


Aww poor Atty, I almost feel bad, haha. Can any of you guess what his real name, if Atty is a nickname? I think it's pretty easy, haha. It will show up sometime in the book but I'm not sure where. Can you guess Mars's real name? It's a little harder. Anyway, thank you for reading, and I will try to post chapter 1 sometime tomorrow. Please review!!!! Why bother to read it if you don't review? Seriously, how hard is it? Two clicks! One click to access the review box. You type the message. Then another click to submit the review. Not that complicated, people. The lack of reviews on this site, all around, is stunning. I will return the favor if you tell me what story you want me to review of yours! Thanks again!
