I'm back! And with a new story. Try to guess who this is about?
My life wasn't always so bad. I grew up in a house with a loving sister and parents. When I turned fifteen, my world turned upside down. My sister that I grew up with was actually my mom, and my parents had adopted her when she was pregnant with me. My father was a notorious "vampire hunter". I had remembered hearing about him on the news, but then I had thought he was a psychopath. Then my birth mom died leaving me with a heap of information about my father. I tracked him down when I turned eighteen, but talked to his mentor instead. He sent me to stay with his daughter and a couple of her friends. They taught me how to defend myself and how to hunt vampires.
It wasn't long before I met my father. He helped us kill Drake the first vampire ever. But at the time, I pretended to fall for Drake to help bring him down. I started having some feelings for him, but in the end I stayed true to my duty and helped kill him. About a month later, I found out I was caring his child. When my father found out, he wasn't happy. He suggested that I give the child away, but I refused and cut off contact with him. I gave birth to Drina and kept her. She was a great kid. She was sweet, intelligent and had extraordinary powers. Then she was kidnapped, and the familiars used her blood to bring her father back. I found her and tried to kill Drake once more, but Drina was willing to go away with him. They succeeded and I never saw them again.
It's been seven years since I've seen my daughter, and not a day has gone by that I don't miss her. I reported her disappearance to any agency or intelligence available. They had no luck in finding her, so they closed the case with a small sighting warning in many countries. I have given up on finding her. The only way I'll find her is if she or her father wants me to.
Tiamat looked up at the ceiling in her stylish room. Her and her father Drago had just moved to Italy from France a year and a half ago. She was sixteen and in her junior year. In her short year in Italy, she became fluent in Italian very quickly. Her eyes were still the golden-brown they have always been, and her curly hair went all the way down to her waist. She had a slim figure because she worked out a few times a week and was on a healthy diet. Her father had been teaching her how to fight with every weapon possible, and how to defend herself. He had also insisted that she learn ancient languages and the history of the cultures.
Right now she was making out with one of her boyfriends. Then her dad walked in.
"Padre, che cosa state facendo qui? (Dad, what are you doing here?)," she yelled at him. Drago gave the guy a look that could kill.
"You!" he pointed to the guy, "Get out now!" The guy scrambled off the bed and ran out of the room.
"Il mio dio, che cosa ero quello per? (My God, what was that for?)," she asked him.
"What do you mean what was that for! Guys aren't supposed to be on top of my daughter in my house or any other place! You're grounded for a week!"
"Voi e le vostre regole stupid! Sono un adolescente! Non saró una ragazza piccola più! (You and your stupid rules! I'm a teenager! I'm a not a little girl anymore!)," she yelled back.
Drago left and slammed her door without another word.
"I hate this place!" she screamed at no one in particular.
Drake heard the bell ring and headed down the stairs to answer. He looked through the peephole to see who it was. It was her friend Derec. He opened the door.
"Hey, is Tiamat here?" he asked.
"Yes, but you can't see her because she's grounded," Drago answered.
"Again? What did she do this time?"
"Ask her in a week," Drago said and closed the door.
That was rude, but you can you really blame him? Tiamat is a free spirit, Derec thought.
Derec walked over to the side of the house where a large tree was planted. He started climbing the tree until he got to the second floor. Tiamat saw him through her window and opened it.
"What are you doing out here?" she asked.
"Your father said you were grounded, so I came up this way instead," he replied. Tiamat moved back so he could climb through. She helped him inside slowly so he wouldn't land with a thud that would alert her father.
"What did you do this time? Get caught making out on your bed, again?" he asked. He was a little jealous, after all he was in love with her, but she didn't know it.
"So! He has his hobbies," she pretended to be drinking, " and I have mine," she stated simply. Derec had to laugh.
"He's a professional wine-taster not a drunk," he said. Tiamat just shrugged.
"So what do you want to do? I don't want to sneak out and get a longer sentence," she asked.
"I don't know. What were you watching on TV?" he asked.
"Uh, I wasn't watching it, remember?" she answered.
"Oh, sorry I forgot. Hey I know, we can talk about boys, paint each other's finger nails and watch When Harry Met Sally!" he said energetically. Tiamat laughed and knocked him onto her bed. She sat down next to him and laid down.
"Seriously, what should we do? We do have that history final on Wednesday. Wanna study?"
"Nah, that's what Tuesday night is for," she said.
"Bianca's party is that night."
"So, why do you care? She's a skank," she replied.
"Tia, She is not. She's not that bad," he replied.
"She slept around when you two were dating, why should I like her?"
"We decided to put that behind us and stay friends. I wish you could do the same."
"She wasn't there to console when you found out, I was. I don't like her."
"Please. If you can't go for her, atleast do it for me," he pleaded. Tiamat gave him a look, but then realized he was serious.
"Fine, if it means that much to you, then I'll go. But I don't have to like it," she said sternly.
"Thank you, Tia. No, you don't have to like it. You can even get in a fight with her if you wish. I wouldn't mind a good old fashioned catfight."
Tiamat hit him with her pillow, and he tried to wrestle the pillow away from her and ended on top of her. They wrestled for a few more minutes, and then laughed at their situation. When they stopped laughing, Tiamat noticed how close their faces were. He was looking straight into her eyes. Almost if sensing his thoughts, she leaned up and kissed him softly. He kissed her back for a second then broke the kiss. He got off of her and stood on the floor.
Tiamat sat up searching his eyes for what was wrong.
"I gotta go. I'll see you later," he said and left through her window.
"Wait, Derec!" she called after him, but it was too late. He was gone. She leaned back against her bed. She picked up a pillow and screamed into it.
For the next week at school, Derec avoided her. He didn't even come to study with her. He wasn't even at Bianca's party (which she snuck to), so she left earlier. All week, he ignored and she had had enough.
She was waiting for him near his car after school. He stopped when he saw her. He ignored her and unlocked his car door. She walked over to him.
"You've been avoiding me," she said.
"What do you want, Tiamat?" He had called her by her first name, and he never did that.
"Look I know this is about the kiss. Why won't you talk to me?"
"Because of the kiss," he answered. "May I go now?"
"Why are you upset over it?" she asked.
"Because I have feelings for you! Because that kiss meant something to me! Because I love you and I know you don't feel the same and probably never will! And even if there was the slightest chance that you might in the future, I don't feel like waiting for it!" he exploded.
"What makes you think I don't feel the same? What makes you think I don't have feelings for you? If you had stuck around Saturday afternoon, you would have known!" she told him. He looked at her in surprise.
"Hmm, what made me think you weren't interested?" he asked sarcastically. "It might the be that you are currently juggling around three guys! That can send a guy a wrong signal!"
"I don't care about those guys! They mean nothing to me! I care about you!" she said.
"Well, I guess I got the wrong message, didn't I?" he growled and drove off.
"Derec!" she called after him. She leaned against a car. "Damnit!"
She just needed to let him cool off for awhile. He was hurt and she could see why. It's horrible to see somebody you love in the arms of another. That's how she felt when Derec was dating Bianca.
She knew where he was heading. He usually went to the Trevi Fountain when he was upset. She would wait until five o'clock to drive over there. Until then, she had some things she needed to do.
She found Derec sitting on a bench near the fountain. He looked deep in thought. She walked over to him and sat down. He rose but she gently grabbed his arm.
"Please stay and hear me out," she asked him softly. He thought for a moment and sat back down. "Thank you."
"I broke things off with all of my boyfriends. It's over between me and them," she told him. He looked at her.
"Good for you. Are you done?" he said harshly. She looked at him in disbelief.
"Derec, I'm serious. I was serious about what I told you after school. I do have feelings for you."
"Then why didn't you tell me?" he asked.
"Why didn't you tell me?" she responded. He gave her a look. "Never mind."
"Why can't we see if this works between us? We could give it try," she suggested.
"Because I know you, Tia. You don't hold guys for more than a month, and I don't want to be on that list. Ti amo, Tiamat (I love you, Tiamat)."
Tiamat leaned over and kissed him softly on the lips. She broke away and looked him in the eyes.
"Ti amo anche, Derec (I love you too, Derec)."
She kissed him again and he kissed her back. He broke away to trail kisses across her jaw line. Then he kissed her neck and nibbled on it. She moaned softly, and Derec smiled. Then her body froze and her eyes went wide.
"What's wrong?" he asked. She pointed to a blue van that just pulled up across the street.
"That van has been following me around since school let out." The van looked familiar to her, but she couldn't quite place it.
"Are you sure?" he asked.
"I'm dead sure. Let's go." They stood up and started walking.
"Where did you park?" she asked.
"Just a block away." They started walking towards his car, but the blue van pulled up in front of them and two men jumped out and grabbed them.
"Run!" she told Derec as she fought her attacker. She punched him in the solar plexus and he went down. Then she turned to see the other man holding a gun against an unconscious Derec.
"Come with us or he dies," the guy demanded. The man she took down grabbed her from behind and pressed a cloth to her face and she promptly passed out.
Tiamat and Derec woke up in a solitary room. The room was dim and looked like an ordinary room. There were no windows but there was a steel door.
"Where are we?" Derec asked groggily.
"I don't know," she responded.
The only way out was the door, but she knew it was locked.
"We're trapped in this place. We have no way of getting out," she said.
Just then the door opened, and a man stepped in. He was dressed in a business.
"Hello, Tiamat. It's been awhile, but I bet you don't remember me," he said.
"Who are you and what do you want with us?" Derec asked.
"Who are you? I told them to only bring Tiamat. Oh well, you will prove to be useful in your own way," the man said.
"What do you want with us?" Derec repeated.
"Who said I want anything to do with you? It's Tiamat I want. You're just a casualty." The man took out a gun from his pocket.
Derec went pale at that. This was not a good thing. Tiamat put herself in front of him.
"If you hurt him or kill him, I'll kill myself so that you won't be able to use me for one of your experiments," Tiamat said through gritted teeth.
The man lowered the gun and laughed.
"So you do remember."
Dr. Dennis Morrison turned his attention to the little girl on the hospital bed. He prepped a needle and pushed into a vein on her arm. He watched as the bag started to fill with blood. He didn't notice that her eyes flickered open. He felt like someone was watching him. He looked at the girl again, but her eyes were closed.
An Hour Later
Dr. Morrison looked at the camera feeds. The little girl had taken out many guards simply by looking at them. She was proving to be a great subject. He had time to study her later, but now he was focusing on bringing her father back.
She and her father had escaped from the familiars after they tried to experiment on her. Now they kidnapped her again for the same purpose.
"Yes, I remember you Dr. Morrison," she growled.
"Very well, I shall be going now. I'll give you some time to adjust to your new home." With that, the man left.
"Tiamat, what were you two talking about?" Derec asked.
Tiamat turned to face him. She told him everything. When she was done, he looked at her in shock.
"Oh my God. You went through all of that?" he asked. She nodded sadly.
"But you were just a kid," he said.
"I know, but some of it was my decision remember and sometimes I regret my decision." Tears started rolling down her cheeks. She hated her life.
Derec kissed her tears away. He held her while she cried. When she stopped crying she kissed him passionately on the lips.
"What was that for?" he asked.
"For being there and loving me," she replied and kissed him passionately. They tumbled onto the bed and started making out. She started taking off his shirt, but he stopped her.
"We shouldn't do this. Especially not here," he said.
"Derec, there's no better place. And from the looks of it, we're not leaving here anytime soon." He opened his mouth to argue, but she stopped him with a kiss. "I love you, Derec and you love me. Let's prove it to each other." She started kissing him again and he rolled her over onto her back. They made love for the first time and fell asleep in each other's arms.
Tiamat awoke in Derec's arms. She quietly slipped out of the bed and headed to the bathroom. She took a shower and dressed in some clothes she found in a cabinet. When she came out Derec was awake and in his underwear. She also noticed that Dr. Morrison had a gun to his head, and he didn't look happy.
"You slept with this guy! You could have contracted something, you dirty whore!" She walked towards and he clicked the safety off on the gun, which made her stop.
"What I do with my boyfriend is none of your business!" she yelled. Dr. Morrison's face got darker.
"It is when I need your blood pure, but now this guy might have ruined my project! Well there's only one way to make sure that never happens again." He pulled the trigger and Tiamat reached out with her power to stop it, but for some reason couldn't. Derec's body toppled to the ground.
Tiamat was numb. The man she loved had just been killed and she didn't do anything about it. She fell to her knees and felt her world go black.
She awoke in a hospital. Dr. Morrison stood over her with a syringe filled with some liquid.
"Getting ready to introduce the subject to the prototype homines nocturna virus." With that, he injected her with the fluid. She felt intense build up at the injection site. Then the pain quickly spread through her whole body. She felt her muscles reshape, her canines elongate, her vision enhance, and a hunger she never felt before appear. She screamed in agony.
Then there was an explosion. Tiamat looked over her shoulder to see her father, fully armed, through a huge hole in the wall. He destroyed the monitors and took the needles out of her body. He knocked Dr. Morrison to the ground and picked up Tiamat.
"What have you done to her, you bastards!" he demanded to know.
"Drina, welcome to vampirism," Dr. Morrison said before passing out.
Drago escaped with his daughter from the building and took her home. He laid her down on her bed. She stared up at hi with tears.
"Quello piccolo, che cosa hanno fatto a voi? (Little one, what did they do to you?)," he asked her.
"Hanno ucciso Derec e lo hanno iniettato con la loro propria versione del virus del vampire. Lo amavo, padre (They killed Derec and injected me with their own version of the vampire virus. I loved him, Dad)," she whispered to him. He cradled her.
"It's going to be okay. We'll get them back for what they did. I can teach you how not to feel, so it won't hurt anymore. I can you teach how to get revenge on them. But first we'll need to step up your training. We'll make sure this never happens again, okay?" he said soothingly.
Tiamat nodded. She wanted to learn. She never wanted to feel this way again.
What do you think? R&R plz! Good start huh!
