Francesca was a past lover of Claudius’. When she gave birth to Alice, he was the first one to hold her. Her father took off when he got the news that he was having a child. For some reason, Claudius was attracted to the newborn. There was a connection. Something told him she was be something big one day and he wanted part in it. Turning Francesca into a vampire, he believed it would keep Alice in his sight and life.
Fortunately, Francesca escaped and disappeared. Never seen again, only rumors were spread about how she had another child before Alice. They were identical. But, Claudius had never seen her. Or had he? They were said to be roaming about in Europe. Beautiful girls. Just like their mother who Claudius loved but the love was not returned.
Claudius called a secret meeting that he assumed, Alice knew nothing about but you cannot hide anything from Alice. She knew everything, heard everything, saw everything. She listened as she perched on a tall rock on the mountain that they accompanied.
“Listen, we are going to have to, somehow, capture her. Seduce her. Turn her. She will be powerful to us. We can overcome Aparatus if we have her.” Claudius announced to his fellow vamps.
“Why? What is so valuable about her?” Felix asked in a hushed tone. Felix was a darken. This meant that he could stop anyone in their tracks and make their mind go blank. Put them in a deep sleep while they turned someone. They will feel pain but they will not squirm. He will become more useful in war. Claudius chuckled and walked over to a mound of dirt and sat on it.
“She is one of my brothers.” A gasp leaped out of everyones mouth.
“She is a spy then!” Some said. “Why do you want her here? She could be dangerous?” Others said.
“But she isn’t. She has a witch who turned her more powerful than Asparatus and I together. She is a shapeshifter as you saw as she walked out. She has every power I have except the vampire part. But, she has another secret. I can sense it but I do not know what it is. Once we turn her, I can control her if it was by my venom.” Looking into everyone’s eyes he waited for nods. Finally they came. Slowly, everyone agreed. Claudius sent a visual message to his messengers who sent it to everyone else. It was the plan to get her.
His most appealing vampire, Luke, would somehow persuade her to fall for him, which he is good at for he had done it plenty of times before. He would bring her to his abode and give her a cup of tea that had Claudius’ venom in it. This would make her fall asleep and paralyze her so he could release more into her veins. As the message ran through everyones mind, a charming smile appeared on Luke’s face.
A shrieking, cackle burst into the air, causing some to cover their ears.
“So, you think that would work when I can read minds, control actions, emotion, and read the future? Maybe if you talked to me, you would find out my secret. The secret that I wish to be a vampire. I would give anything for it.” The words chimed out of her mouth. She had found a snapback hat that she wore backwards. Jumping off of the cliff, she landed gently on the ground in front of Luke. She looked him in his eyes, as they turned red, he placed his hand on her hips and pulled her into him, his lips landing on hers. As she kissed him with what seemed to be passion, Luke’s eyes shot open and a deafening scream moved out of him. As he squirmed and tried to pull back, everyone noticed that she had latched down on his lip. Turning her head slightly, she looked at Claudius.
“What exactly are you trying to prove?” He asked. She smiled while her teeth were still pounded down on his lip. As she bit a teensy bit harder, a little dribble of blood started to come from the wound. Claudius’ eyes instantly turn blood red. The blood that he craved and could not hold back from was spilling from one of his vampire’s lip. She pulled her tooth through his lip, ripping it into two and threw him onto the ground. All of the vampires, not being able to hold back, pounced onto him tearing him into a billion little pieces, sucking up every drop of blood even if it meant eating his flesh.
“How is that possible? I thought we turned him?!” Claudius screamed as Alice walked back over to him.
“Or maybe, he killed your vampire that you have been looking for for the past three years. Your brother has found a way to create humans into a more supernatural creature. The smell of blood does not affect you because you cannot smell it for it has no odor until it meets oxygen. Your not that smart but with me, you can be the most powerful clan there is in the world. You know those two females that went missing not too long ago? They moved to Paris and started their own clans who also started their own clans. They are everywhere and you do not know. You would not have known unless I appeared.” Alice pulled Claudius to her. Their faces almost touching. “Change me.” She said.
Claudius could not control his emotion towards her. His lips crashed into hers. Moving in sync, he could feel his feelings toward her turn into furry. Into desperation. When their lips departed, he grabbed her wrist and plunged his razor-sharp teeth into her delicate flesh.
Leaning her head back, she moaned as he discovered she also had blood. He sucked for a minute but then, there was nothing left. It stopped. She giggled.
“That tickles Claudius. Just do it. Release your venom into me.” She cooed. He smiled and let droplets of venom into her veins which seemed to not have blood left. Alice collapsed onto the floor. The venom flood her body. Fire ripping through it.
Her back arched and her bones cracked. Her eyes went black. A piercing, deafening shriek lurched out of her throat. The windows shook. Her teeth became razor-sharp. Her body went limp. The others huddled closer to examine the new creature they had manufactured. A smile creeped onto her face. Her eyes flashed open. A low growl rose in her throat and slowly escaped. Her eyes were hungry for blood. On all faces were charmed grins. They laughed and whooped at the new member of the crowd. The new, most strong, most powerful member of Monstrous.
