Disclaimer: If I owned MBAV it wouldn't be on Disney Channel. So yeah…also, I am in no way profiting from writing this story. I wish I was, because I am wayyyy broke right now, but I'm not. So Disney can chill and leave this penny-less, teenage, fan that happens to love writing, alone. That is all.
The feeling of her warm lips as they came in contact with the cool skin of my neck, and the feel of her fangs as they pierced it. I don't believe anything could replicate that feeling of bliss that came over as we laid down on the floor next to each-other. And, oh, what would I give to be trapped in that perfect moment forever. It was everything I could ever wish for. She's everything I could ever wish for. But unfortunately she won't give me the time of day now. She's not the same, she's changed.
I guess I should have known she'd be different once she became a full vampire. Once all of the other vampire's had left to fight Benny, Ethan, and Sarah, she told me about her life. Erica told me everything about her. How in the fifth grade she was called a fugly nerd, because she had to get glasses. How in the seventh grade she tried to ask out Jack Collins (the most popular boy in school at the time and the star soccer goalie of the school) and was brutally rejected. She even told me the exact words he used to reject her. "You? Why would I date you? You're the nerdiest girl in school. No-one likes you, I don't think you even have any friends. God, and that rat's nest you call hair, it's an embarrassment to this school. Why don't you just move away and save yourself the depressing life here that you'll never be able to escape." That's what he told her, a seventh grader, he said those terrible things to such a sweet girl. Apparently she just let it roll off her back, but she was never the same after that. The words had always echoed in her ears, every night before she went to sleep she remembered what he said. Anger kept seething inside of her and she found herself taking it out on her family. It tore them apart, and they stopped talking to each other. Isn't amazing how a few words can ruin a life? In any case she continued to go on about the names she'd been called. All the parties she'd been left out of, everything that had haunted her. Everything that had ever happened to her that killed her confidence. Then she went on to tell me about why she was obsessed with Dusk.
Dusk. For Erica it was a dream world. It was the world where the smart, nerdy girl wasn't ugly. A world where the smart girl won the love of the lifetime. A world where the nerd was chosen over millions of others because someone finally recognized how special she was. It truly was everything Erica had ever wanted and dreamed of, and I guess she thought that once she was a vampire she could get all that. You see, that was the message that dusk had sent to her mind. The message that the only way she was ever going to be happy, the only way that she could have ever get what she wanted, was if she changed herself to do it.
I guess I'm just sorry that no-one recognized how special Erica was before she was turned. I'm sorry that I wasn't around to tell her how beautiful she was before every-one else finally saw how beautiful she is. But what I can't regret that she was the one who turned me. It was the best gift anyone could give me. Who I turned is a bit of a blur. I remember being told to drink all the blood of a girl we saw walking on the street. I took her behind a tree, but when I bit her and saw her limp body, I couldn't bring myself to kill her. I hid her in the bushes and walked away. I don't think I could bring myself to kill anyone, and I truly doubt Erica has. That is something I admire about Erica, she acts tough, but deep down inside she's soft-hearted. I have until the world ends to make her see how she never needed to change to be loved. You know, if she doesn't run away from me first, and we all know how Erica loves to run.
I wish I was good enough for Erica, but one day she'll understand how great she always was, and she'll see who really loved her all along.
