2. Chapter 2

Okay, so I didn't ask for this. I know that it sounds amazing, but watching all of your friends die while you are stuck at the age of seventeen for all eternity. Not being able to set foot outside when it gets sunny is torture. And, I can never get a tan again. I'd be crying, but vampires can't cry, so yeah.

My name is Rose. I'm immortal, and stuck at the age of seventeen. I have been for fifty years. I'm lonely, and looking for love. And I can't figure out how to end the torture that is immortality.

Fifty Years Ago

I stared at my reflection in terror. I didn't want this. I was more beautiful than ever before, but I looked like someone who wasn't me. My auburn hair cascaded over my shoulders like a waterfall of blood, and skin was white like snow. I didn't know what had happened at first. All I knew was that some moron bit me, and I collapsed because it hurt so much.

"I have to get out of here." I whispered to myself. A petite blonde girl with pale skin that looked sun-kissed and dark compared to mine, and a black girl who was tall and thin with shockingly green eyes and very curly hair both were looking at me enviously. I guess they wanted to look like me. If only they knew what I went through to look like this.

As I started to leave the filthy city bathroom, I gasped with more pain, and bolted back inside. It was already morning. I had been bitten at around nine.  At night. Now the sun was shining bright, ready to turn my new, delicate skin into a pile of ashes. The only problem with that theory was that my skin wasn't delicate; it was hard as rock.

"What am I?" I said, louder than I should've. The blonde girl gave me an irritated look, while the other girl sighed. I guess I offended them. Stupid mortals. Wait, what am I thinking? What would I give to be mortal again? Everything.
