2. And Now

It turns out that, that day when fate destroyed my humanity, I was Christmas shopping. I bought my sister and parents a gift and when I was walking home I heard someone crying for help. Like usual, I was soft at heart and I rushed to the persons help. But what awaited me was my death and my beginning. After I was fully healed and ok, days had past and everyone close to me was looking for me. As for the man who turned me, I killed home and left his corpse in the rotting basement.

Everyone asked what happened to me, and I said that I thought I heard someone yelling for help in the forest and got lost. They all believed it and said that it was a miracle that I was alive. But only if they knew I wasn't, only if they knew that I was a dead murderer. All this happened a month ago and ever since then I was starving for more delicious flesh, I was craving the kill. But I swore to never hurt those I loved. Luckily I did not fall into the hunger yet, and I didn't kill a human.

Fortunately I look like a human. Almost my old self. My hair still grew and it felt soft like usually, it stayed the black colour as before, and my skin was still warm and soft and didn't go any more pale than before. What would give me away as a monster was my left eye changing whenever I was hungry. Unlike the mans eyes, my right one never changed.

"Alice? Can I come in?" Ami's voice interrupted my thoughts. I quickly put on my eye patch to cover the only part that showed I wasn't human, and opened the door.

"Come in." I said and moved out of the way. She sat down on the love seat that was in front of the window. I followed suit and sat down on my bed. "Is there a reason you need to talk to me?" I asked her.

Ami frowned and looked at her folded hands. "You are so distant lately. And moody. I accepted it so far since what happened to you, but you can't allow what happened to you change your full life. We use to talk to much, we were so close. But now you are distant and we barely talk. What happened to change you so much Alice?" She said. I looked away and didn't know what to say.

A minute passed until Ami sighed. "Fine. Don't tell me, but you should tell someone." She said and got up. When she reached the door she turned to look at me. Ami looked just like me, except she was human. "Mom has pizza downstairs. You should at least eat once today. It's not healthy to starve yourself." She said and walked away closing my door.

I wanted to cry after, cry over my death and what it is doing to my family. My parents are always fighting now over what they should do with me, and my sister is hurting and barely making it through the day without breaking down.

My stomach growled and I thought about what Ami said. She is right that I shouldn't starve, but I couldn't bring myself to eat. Human food tasted horrible and made me throw up, it was humans theirselves that I needed to consume. And I didn't was to become a killer, I couldn't bring myself to eat. I was going to die from starvation and that was completely ok with me. I was ready to fully die.

Standing I looked at myself in the mirror that was on my door. It was a full length and I was able to see my full body. What I seen was someone who was very beautiful but dying. In the past couple days I noticed my skin going pale and my body was becoming skin and bones. My hair was limp and my eyes were sunken. "It's not healthy to starve yourself." Her words repeated over and over in my head. Causing my to fall to my knees and start crying.

"What if I can't eat sis? What if I would need to kill humans to live. Would you still love me then, would you still tell me that I need to eat?" I cried and folded into a ball. My stomach growled again and I stood up and went to the widow. I escaped this way dozens of times and decided I should walk to clear my mind. Silently I opened the window and jumped, landing on my feet. Since I turned, I was more strong and flexible and like a Hollywood vampire. That part was the only good part.

Quickly I started to run down the road and to the park that was a couple blocks down. It was getting late and not much people was in the park. I sat down on a swig and looked at all the humans. There was about five there, and they were all teens. The children must have left earlier for supper. My stomach growled again and I clutched it.

"This swing is not taken, is it?" A male voice said. I jumped and looked over my shoulder. Beside me was a god. He had white hair with striking blue eyes and high cheek bones. Muscles were defined by his shirt and jeans were hugging his waist. It was like this man was straight out of a magazine.

"No. Not at all." I said and he sat down.

"May I ask your name?" He asked.

"Alice. What's yours?"

"Mathias. I just moved here and I don't really know anyone." He said then stared at me. Blushing he looked down at his eyes. "What's with the eye patch?" He asked and then looked at me wide eyed. "Not that it's bad or anything. I didn't mean it like that. I'm sorry, you don't need to answer me." He said.

For the first time in weeks I smile and giggled. "I was in an accident and now my eye is messed up." I told him. It was the truth but without a lot of details. Slowly he reached up and took it off. Scared I covered my eye.

"Don't worry let me see. I won't make fun." He said. I stood up, trying to get away from this hot guy.

"I'm sorry I need to go." I said and quickly started to run away. I ended up going into the forest and onto the trail. That's when I smelled something so delicious and enticing. It smelled like chocolate with a hint of heaven.
