2. The end of the beginning
I start where I finished the last story.
Niall has bitten Lilly and I start the night after, or when she has come to life as a vampire.
I felt so alive. I lay in bed on my back and I looked up at the ceiling. My whole body was like one big high and I felt no concern. I felt no anxiety and I felt ... nothing. I was just happy and I was just happy that I was me. Niall came back to our bed and he had brought with him a bottle with red liquid. He smiled at me and he kissed me lightly on the lips.
"You need to drink." he whispered tenderly, and he made sure I sat up. I looked surprised both him and the bottle.
"Is that blood?"
He nodded and he sat behind my back. He took his legs around me and he hugged me easily with one arm. He placed the bottle in front of me.
"Since you are now a part of me, you must also share my diet, my special diet."
He said it with a twinkle in his eye. I remembered so well the first time he had said that he didn't eat normal food. Direct a thought popped up.
"Will I never be able to eat food again?"
Niall didn't consider that as a problem.
"You can eat whatever you want, but you will notice that there's only blood that gives you satisfaction."
I took the bottle and I wrinkled my nose. It didn't exactly sounded normal to drink blood, but I realized that much would change in my life and I had to get used to it.
"How do I drink?"
He laughed a little bit and I felt his hands caressing my stomach.
"As you drink water."
I took the bottle to my lips and as soon as I felt the blood running into my mouth, I felt even a craving. I felt my whole body came to life and it was a wonderful feeling when I swallowed.
"Drink as much as you want." I heard Niall say. I was barely aware that he was still behind me. I was only aware of the blood, and what pleasure it was to drink it. I almost couldn't get enough and it was as if every part of me cheered with joy. I couldn't describe how I felt and I couldn't even think straight.
Nialls voice sounded like soft velvet against my ears. I obeyed him and I was like crazy. It was as if I had a drug and I wanted everything to me at the same time.
When the bottle was empty, I was almost disappointed. Niall took the bottle from me and he placed it on the bedside table.
"How does it feel?"
I leaned against him and I could do nothing but smile. I felt full of everything and this even changed my senses. I heard how people went to bed for the night and I heard the birds flew between the trees. I heard a dog, far away, but it was as if the dog was standing in front of me.
"Your senses will be sharp!" Niall whispered on my ear. "You will also be able to read my thoughts in a few days."
I loved the new me. I loved what was happening in my body and I felt so strong. I felt more alive now than when I was human.
"Why didn't you tell me that it's wonderful to be vampire?"
Niall hesitated. He hugged me and he kissed my neck.
"Everyone experiences it differently." he whispered. "Maybe you think it's fun, but at the same time, there's much that you need to learn."
I let my hands land on his thigh and I caressed his skin. Even my hands felt things in a new way. I felt the blood running in Nialls legs and it was almost exciting. I pressed myself against him and I groaned lightly.
"You must also be able to be among people." he continued. I couldn't bother, because the whole I was totally perfect.
"How do you mean?"
Niall continued to kiss my neck.
"You have to control yourself and you have to learn to switch off sometimes."
