Just One Bite

Zoë is an 16 year old girl...on the surface. She's actually a five century old Vampire queen to be.Her life seems to be doing fine until the current queen of her coven is mysteriously killed and she is shoved into the position, well before she is ready. How will she handle the pressure, AND avoid the Vampire slayers that are coming after her coven?


6. Queen

QUEEN?!?! No, no, no, no. I was just here to get accepted into the coven, not to start ruling it! I’m not even 1000 yet!

            “I’m sorry, there must be some mistake.” I said, rather concerned, I wasn’t ready to be queen. “My meeting is to be entered into the coven, not to start ruling it.”

            the Vampire on my right started talking. “Zoë,” she said, “When we scheduled this meeting 150 years ago for this day, there was a meaning behind it. Our leader, Alexander,” she pointed to the man in the biggest chair, “is a Seer. He Saw that on this day, of this year, at 12:30 this morning, the current queen of your coven would be killed by some of the turned Vampires.”

            Turned Vampires are those who go crazy with blood lust. There are whole covens of them, though they don’t usually last long because they all end up killing each other. They are extremely dangerous and very hard to kill because they are constantly drinking blood, which strengthens them. While I drink in moderation, making sure to only take what I need, they drain people on a daily basis. They are the ones who give all Vampires the reputation we have.

            “What about Jacob? Is he still here?” I asked, rather concerned. Jacob was the lead warrior in our coven, equivalent to a king. I am next in line to be queen because I was the first female he turned. By tradition, the lead warrior chooses the next queen by biting her, but she has to be the first female he’s bitten. And the queen, once she rules the coven, chooses the lead warrior, who will also be her mate. He doesn’t have to be the first she’s turned, but it’s preferred that way.

            “Jacob is still here, but we need a queen, as soon as possible. You will have to take your rightful place as head of your coven. Jacob will stay your head warrior until you find a successor and mate.” I was taken aback. I wasn’t ready for this, at all. But I knew what I had to do.

            “How long do I have to disappear from the human world?” I asked, rather upset. I did like it there. I would miss a lot.

            “We would actually prefer if you stayed there.” one of the men responded. That caught me off guard. Usually the queen was required to live with the coven. “You will be harder to track in the human world, your scent will be masked by the odor they emanate. Of course, we will be assigning body guards to you to make sure you stay safe. We have to take as many precautions as possible, since those who have turned are starting to pose a threat.”

            This was a lot to take in. I was required back in Romania at a week’s time. I was going to have lessons on how to become a proper queen. I would get special time with each of the members of the council, who will each teach me a specific thing. Then In about a month I shall be crowned. Wow…
