The original vampire

I am finally awake ....after 100 years sleep I was finally woken up . But by who ? Who would be so foolish to wake up a vampire especially one as hungry , evil and heartless as me ? Surely not another vampire ! I laugh at the thought .
My name is Lacey and I am the original vampire .... Well kind of there had been vampires before me but they stayed hidden from the world , cowering away from humans only going out in the middle of the night to feed. Vampires were a dying breed before me ! I should of been worshiped for what I did ! I brought fear apon our enemy ....the humans ,what a pathetic excuse for a being , so weak , vulnerable and unaware of what is lurking around each and every corner of their built up city's . They had no idea such a creature like a vampire existed ! I changed that , I terrorized towns and villages leaving only trails of blood behind and before long the word spread some 'beast' was after them and it was hungry, malicious and non-forgiving . I should explain .

I am finally awake ....after 100 years sleep I was finally woken up. But by whom? Who would be so foolish to wake up a vampire especially one as hungry, evil and heartless as me? Surely not another vampire! I laugh at the thought.

150 years ago....

It was the year 1863. I was a young lady at the time. No older than 18. I was an absolute lady, I followed my orders ... Be seen not heard as my mother had put it. She was also a lady but a powerful one. She had a certain air about her, what she said went and that was final. On my 16th birthday herself and my father handed my over to the son of a wealthy political man. His name was Benjamin. He was Hansom there was no doubt of it, he was charming and mysterious and I quickly found myself fascinated with him. He would always speak to me of this advanced living. Where you had no need for manners or pleasantries, you could move faster than light itself and lift whole buildings with your bare hands .You would never grow old or at all, you would stay young forever. But there was a price, in return for this advanced living you had to give in your appetite for something a little more... Red. I was intrigued and wanted the power. 

"Benjamin...” I called out from behind the large wooden door while knocking 

“Yes my love, please do come in “he sung back, I pushed open the door and walked in holding my gown to prevent it being dirtied or standing on it. I walked up to his desk where he was working on some paperwork and stood waiting for his approval to sit; when he nodded I sat and made myself as comfy as I could in a corset.

“How may I help you dear" Ben said as he looked up from his work at me 

“I was wondering about the plans sir" I reply, it was 5 days until my 18th birthday and the day I would stop ageing forever 

“ah yes!" he replies while standing up and moving from his end of the table to mine he stood behind my chair and leaned over so his mouth was at my ear 

“Well when the time comes and you are .... Of age, I will kiss your neck here “he whisper’s into my ear while running his finger up my neck, stopping at the same place he had every other time, at what he called my jugular vein.

" and then ", he continues softly " I will turn you into the most beautiful creature to every walk this land " I smile up at him and he smiles back .

looking back on it now I should of knew  there was something not quite right , I should of asked how I would be turned and what it would entail but I was too caught up in the idea of such a man wanting me or even acknowledging me 

The days passed quite uneventful , I continued to think about my new life with my love . I being the naive little girl I was imagined myself and Benjamin together forever . happy , smiling .... laughing .

On the unforgettable day of my 18th birthday a party was to be hosted in celebration . the towns wealthy and powerful families where to attend for what they though was my debutante ball and in a way it was but by the time , darkness struck the great walls of myself and Benjamin’s home I was no longer me . I was no longer a lady.

At 4'o clock Benjamin summed me to his office, when I knocked he hastily invited me in and told me to sit of the futon and I obliged. He sat beside me and took in every feature of my body , as if trying to remember my flaws . with a deep breath he leaned over and pressed his lips to my vein ever so softly ,

"Are you ready for greatness?", he asks and I nod 

"Good my love , this will be the start of our forever ", I take and deep breath not yet aware of what was to follow .Benjamin with his lips still close to my neck whispers one more time 

"Don't scream", his hand quickly comes up to cover my mouth and he latches onto my neck, his teeth sinking in. Pain spread through my body at a rapid rate, it travelled through my veins to my heart, brain and limbs. And then.... I blacked out 

When I awoken I was no longer in the study but the master bedroom. I sit up to take in my surroundings. It was light outside so I had either woken up the same day and had only been out an hour or so, or I had slept right through the night. Both at the time seemed plausible.

I was hungry , no , I was starving .I looked around the room one more time before getting out of bed . I quickly walked over to my wardrobe and picked out a gown quickly put it on . i brush my hair i put it up in a tight bun with just a few bits hanging about . only now did i look at my reflection.

I was beautiful. flawless . a goddess . i stared at myself for what seemed like forever. only breaking from it when i heard the door , i quickly turn to face it , just in time to see Benjamin walk in with two glasses full of what i believed to be wine at the time . he looked and me and smiles 

"ah Lacey , you look beautiful", he says while crossing the room to where i was .

"here , take this . you must be starving " he continues while offering me one of the glasses . i take it and we toast before i greedily drank from the glass. When i finally finish , i look up at Benjamin expecting him to have a look of disgust but he was grinning ear to ear , the kind of grin and mad scientist has when he sees one of his inventions succeeding .

" here , drink this " he finally says while handing me his cup while i quickly take and drink.

" now my dear you are finally complete " he says while pulling me too him and capturing me in a kiss.... our first kiss. Bolts of energy exploded through my body .Spreading through my nerves .I lean into the kiss, a noise I have never made nor heard before flows from my mouth. 

Benjamin pulls away and smiles at me.

"Forever my love, forever."
