New family TG
February 15th 2013:
After realising that the whole reaper thing that happened to me 10 years ago was just my mind going crazy after being ran over I decided to get on with my life, I was on the beach with a few mates and we were all playing some beach volleyball, whilst playing my eye was caught by a really attractive woman, she seemed to be in her early 20's and had lovely short black hair, if I had to say she reminded me a lot of the girl from hotel Transylvania because she seemed somewhat pale and was wondering around lost and confused, I looked to my mates and said "one second I am just going to grab a drink.
I grabbed 2 bottles of coke and walked up to the girl and said "hey how's it going?" she looked back and said in a nervous way, "yeah I'm fine, just getting used to the New Zealand summer." I passed her a bottle of coke and she looked down curious as she sipped it, her eyes lit up and she took a big gulp of the coke and said "Wow! This is amazing! What is it?!" I looked at her confused and said "have you not had coca cola before? You have missed out, my name is Luke by the way, what is yours?" she took another big gulp of the coke and said "my name is Melissa, I just moved here with my family from Romania." I smiled and said "oh cool, I moved here from the United Kingdom 2 years ago, are you enjoying it so far?" she smiled and said "yes it's much more lively than my hometown."
After a good 10 minutes of talking she gave me her number and we went our separate ways, as I went back to my mates they all stopped playing volleyball and just stared at me, I looked back them and said "what?! She was cute!" they all moved to me and said "bro you do know who she is right?" I looked at them and said "yeah, it's Melissa she seems like a nice girl." They all face palmed and said "that is Melissa Dracule her family are from Transylvania" I stood there laughing they looked back and said "just be careful bro for all we know she could be a vampire…" I thought they were just being paranoid or just taking the piss and said "don't worry I will be sure she doesn't suck the blood out of me." I then waked back to my area and lay on my towel to try and get a tan.
A few minutes later I notice a few shadows hanging over me and I open my eyes to see her and her parents, I sit up thinking "oh shit I'm dead meat." As I sit up the Father then says "Hey Luke pleased to meet you, my daughter said you would be happy to baby sit for us this evening." I look at her and she was smiling revealing her canines that where a lot larger than a normal humans and I heard a voice in my head saying, "play along Luke!" I decided to along with it seeing as I liked being alive, the father then went on to explain that I would be caring for 3 children who are fairly relaxed and Melissa would be with me. I found this rather suspicious because why would they need me if she was going to be there.
Later that afternoon I went back to my flat, I looked at my phone and noticed Melissa was calling, I picked up the phone and she said I am coming to your house in a minute to explain everything. Soon after a small cloud of purple smoke rushed at my house from the direction of the beach, for reason I don't know I opened the window and she materialised in my room, she sat on my pc chair and said "as you can guess me and my family are vampires, and no not like them pansies from twilight." I paused and said "why didn't you tell me this over the phone?" she stood up off the chair and walked up to me and said "my dad is a cautious man and I really had to convince him that you're a good person." I stuttered for a second and then said "we only talked for ten minutes how could you tell I was a good person?" she smiled and said "I read your mind, most of the people who I read have a lustful mind, but you were different you don't have any interest in any of that stuff you just love a person for who they are."
After about an hour of talking I noticed 2 more smoke patches coming to my house at an extreme speed and Melissa looked and said "oh my parents are here." They fazed through the wall and materialised, the father looked around the flat and said "this seems pretty small to live in Luke…" I was still in shock at the fact that they fazed straight through my wall, "well, I cannot afford a big place sadly." I said keep my distance from the father who looked at me and then turned to his daughter and said "come on dear we need to prepare the house before me and you mother leave for the night. Melissa handed me a note with their address and said "come at 8.00." and disappeared in a puff of smoke with her parents.
Later that day I got myself ready, I prepared my clothes; I decided to do a smart casual look, I picked my good jeans with a smart top and my best trainers, I jumped in to my shower and had a quick wash, whilst in there I thought I could hear wings batting around, I just put it to birds flying overhead and got ready to leave, I jotted the address in to my phone and it was a 20 minute walk from the house, and because it was still really warm and sunny out I walked there.
Whilst walking down I noticed it was heading in to the forest by the local cemetery, when I was walking through I saw a few small bats following me in the trees, "I am not sure whether they are the kids, or just some curious bats." I muttered to myself before one of them flew right by the side of my head. While I walked through I noticed the bats diverted and flew straight over the trees and headed to this large Victorian styled house, it looked very well kept because it was in perfect condition, I looked at my phone and it said 19:50 so I slowed my pace and had a glance around and enjoyed the peaceful environment. As I knocked on the door, a child about 10 years old she looked up at me and shouted "Melissa your boyfriends here." She then grabbed my hand and walked me inside, I looked around and the house was as magnificent on the inside as it was on the out, it had a marble laminate floor and large wood staircase leading to a landing big enough to land a plane.
I was walked in to the living area which was up the stairs on the landing and was met by the whole family.
The father walked up to me and shook my hand and said "welcome my name is Anthony, but my friends nickname me Drac. The wife then walked up and said in a very posh voice, my name is Elizabeth pleased to meet you." She then gave me a light hug and backed off, the three little kids then bolted in front of me and the first shouted "my name is Jade. The second then hugged me and said "my name is Beverly, but everyone just calls me Bev." The third then dragged off Bev and said "my name is Justin, and no it's not after Justin Beiber I hate that kid!" Melissa then walked up and said "you already know who I am, thank you for coming and help me keep these 3 at bay." I looked at them and said "they don't seem that evil." Melissa laughed and said "just wait they will run us ragged."
Once the parents left Melissa walked up and said "would you like something to eat? We have screaming cheese sandwiches, moose nose on toast and Mouse cheese with a side of bread." I looked and she said "just kidding we are having lamb and panhaggity." I took a sigh of relief and joined her in the kitchen.
After we had something to eat we got the kids and took them to the living area and watched some TV, I was expecting them to watch some sort of special TV shows but it was all normal really, the kids kept looking at me then looking at each other, after a few minutes they all walked away and left me and Melissa to chat I asked her a couple of questions that she was happy to answer.
The first was, if they hate garlic, she laughed and said "nope were not affected by garlic that myth was because someone had garlic breath and the vampire he confronted hated the smell and he backed off and ran." I then asked about the whole does someone who gets bitten by a vampire become one. She looked at me then grabbed my hand and said "well… let's find out." She then quickly bit my hand and I quickly shot back. And said "what the hell?!" she looked at me and said "no when we don't even bite people to make them vampires it's a genetic thing, unless the vampire you love kisses you." I stood there and she said "here let me fix that." She then placed her hand on mine and emitted a small bit of purple smoke which changed to royal blue." I then looked at my hand and it was completely healed, with that I smiled and said thanks.
After an hour I noticed 3 bats fluttering around the house, I nudged Melissa and pointed up at them. She wasn't happy she leaped up about 10ft in the air which for a human is completely impossible and grabbed the 3 of them and threw them on the couch, they all morphed back to human and looked at me and Tristan said "Luke we wish you were in our family your more fun than Melissa." I laughed and said "I am sorry mate but I can't I am not a vampire." At this point Tristan grinned and looked at his siblings and said "that could be arranged" Melissa then glared at the kids and her eyes glowed purple with anger. The three kids walked away and I turned to Melissa and said "what are they up to?" Melissa then placed her hand on her face and said "god knows Luke, but be careful, they will be up to no good and I think you will need to keep an eye on them, for all we know they might try something on you.
After 2 hours I looked at the clock and noticed it was 11pm I went to grab my phone to check to see if any of my mates had messaged me, to my surprise I couldn't find it, I heard it ringing and couldn't see it, then to my shock I look up and see Bev sitting on the banister with it in her hand she waved it in front of me then jumped off the banister and ran off, I panicked and went to chase her but felt something around my legs I looked down to see Tristan clasping my legs and I was shocked to see how strong he was, I couldn't budge my legs at all, I shouted Melissa but she was fast asleep on the couch, then the third sibling ran up to me and knocked me clean out.
When I woke I was in a daze, I tried to place my hand on my head but I couldn't move my arms or legs at all, when I looked around all I could see was smoke around my hands and legs, I then turned to see the 3 siblings standing to my right with Melissa still asleep on the floor by me. "What are you guys playing at?!" I shouted in blind anger. "We want another member of the family, and you are more fun than our older sister, she knows all our tricks." I grinned and said "it's a shame because I cannot become a vampire because-"I was cut off by Tristan who interrupted me "the whole only a love can change is true but they don't have to physically kiss you just the lips have to connect, that's all," I still had my grin and said, well sadly no one in the family is in love with me, Melissa isn't in love with me, were just friends." The 3 kids grinned and said "you don't know? She is madly in love with you, you may have only just met but she had a zing! And you're the only person in her heart that she wants." My face went from a cocky grin to sheer shock, I had never had a girlfriend in my life, not even a valentine's day card off a single person, and Melissa, a girl I met on the beach who seemed lost fell in love with me on the very first sight?! The kids then held my head back and moved Melissa's sleeping body over to me, they then lifted her head and placed her lips on mine, as we touched lips I felt changes happen instantly my hair grew to roughly chest height then the changes crept to my face, it felt like it was being compressed and distorted, then I felt an extreme pain in my mouth as my canines thinned slightly and pushed out, the pain was unbearable and I fainted.
As I awoke I heard Melissa screaming at the kids and when I looked around I was on her bed, she then turned to me and said "oh Luke are you ok?!" sat up and felt a small bounce on my chest, "wh-what was that?" I said to myself hardly recognising my new voice. "well… the thing is, I am deeply in love with you Luke, but I am also Bisexual that's why you changed, I prefer women over men but I still find men attractive." I was still confused as to what happened and Melissa grabbed a small hand mirror and pointed it at me, I looked and saw that my canines where much longer they normally are "Oh my god… I have become a vampire!" I shouted as I backed to the wall on the bed, Melissa then hugged me and said "don't worry Luke I still love you and I will do everything in my power to help you. I felt somewhat calmed but I was scared to think what her parents would say.
After Melissa locked the three kids in their room she came back down to me and said, "right seeing as you're a vampire now I am going to give you some ground rules, number one, don't go around telling every Tom Dick and Harry, trust my you will be classed as insane in no time, number two be careful how you use your abilities if they are seen by normal humans they will freak out, to be honest I when I went to your flat I expected you to freak out more which was disappointing." As she was going to explain number three the doors had opened and Melissa's parents where home as they walked in to the living area the father saw me and glared at me and Melissa and said in a deep evil voice "MELLISA WHO IS THIS MORTAL?!" Melissa stood straight up and said "it was Luke until the triplets knocked him and me out and made us kiss…" The father then diverted his gaze back to me and said "let me see your teeth!" I bared my teeth revealing the enlarged canines, and the father went from being furious to somewhat calm and slightly happy, "so your now one of us Luke, ok then if that's the case then you cannot live in your home again you must live here, it is not that we don't trust you but we don't want you going out screaming to the world our families secret," this was kind of a blow because I wouldn't be able to see my friends again but then again I would see the people I hate again either. The mother then walked to the phone and rang up a friend and started speaking in Romanian. After about 5 minutes a group of vampires appeared at the door and as they were entered I could tell they were friends of the Dracule's. Each one of them walked up and welcomed me to the family and they all seemed to have very good English, I was expecting them to struggle to speak the English language but they spoke it to perfection, we all decided to gather around the dining table and have a drink to this occasion. We opened up a vintage bottle of red wine and started chatting, I noticed Melissa kept glancing out towards the kids bedrooms, I am guessing she was nervous in case they got out again, but aw well the night is still young(ish)
Later that night I was shown to my room, as I was walking up the father said " I am sorry about before, I am just very protective of my family, as we got to the room he said "this is your room Melissa has went and got you some clothes that she thought would fit.
(A little side note! The people who know me in real life should know that I wear mainly darkish clothing it's not because I am Gothic or anything I just think it's easier to maintain!)
As I walked in I gasped at how big it was, "wow! This is bigger than my entire flat!" I said trying to comprehend the size of the room." The father smiled and said "this is actually one of the smaller rooms believe it or not." I turned around and said "thank you very much for accepting me in to the family." The father somewhat blushed and replied "it's just that Melissa looked through your mind a lot and all she could sense was a kind hearted and loveable person, if you where anyone else we would of not even acknowledged your existence, you know about the early 1500's and that vampires where almost extinct because humans feared them right?" I nodded my head and he continued "well my family was almost wiped out by them monsters; I was only a young boy when this happened and we fled to the UK where we lived in the shadows until the late 1800's when we came out of the shadows and tried to blend in with the modern society, by this time I had met my wife, and Melissa was just a baby."
After we parted ways I went in to my new room and had a look around I noticed it looked fairly modern, I looked in the wardrobe to find some clothes as I searched through I found a nice outfit I decided to put it on and look in the mirror, as I looked I noticed I did have a reflection which answered one of my more stupid questions. I then went and sat on the sofa that was in my room, and then heard the sound of fluttering again, this time it was outside the patio, I walked up and opened the window to see a bat carrying a suitcase full of stuff. "Hey Luke I grabbed some of your gear from your house, she then changed back to human and laid it on my bed, thanks Melissa, that saves me a trip back to the flat I said with an innocent smile." As we were randomly chatting a thought came back from when I was back in my flat in the shower and I asked Melissa who was it that was flying around my house earlier today, she blushed and said in an embarrassed voice "m-me, sorry Luke but I wanted to read your mind more, it is just that you're so innocent you have no lust in your heart you only love!" I laughed and said "well do me a favor and don't read my mates minds you will die of shock." We both laughed for ages and after a few minutes, Elizabeth walked in and said " ok you two its bed time." Melissa then kissed me on the cheek and said "goodnight 'Louise' see you tomorrow." I decided to dress down and go to bed but there was a thought that kept me awake, why did she call me Louise?
