Final chapter! Be sure to read clear to the end of the author note at the bottom... you'll be glad you did!
I Wish I Had an Angel
I Wish I Had an Angel
Anna turned away from the clouds that covered the mortal world, moving with her family towards the Paradise that awaited them. Footsteps behind her made her pause and turn, eyes widening as she recognized the black hair and sapphire eyes.
"You?! How dare you! How did you even get here?!" Velkan growled, barely held back by his father and sister. Dracula smiled, brushing off the sleeve of his cream colored silk shirt before clasping his hands behind his back.
"Apparently, there was a loophole in the agreement that my father made... He said his entire line... of which I am a part. He ensured that I would not suffer eternally for my mistakes, though I know I deserve that." His voice had softened, lost the commanding edge it had contained when Anna had seen him before. It reminded her of a dream... Or was it? She frowned and moved toward him, her hand caressing his cheek gently. He leaned down to kiss her; a gentle, loving kiss that he had been incapable of before.
Anna pulled back with a gasp as her memories returned to her in a rush; how he'd been there to comfort her when no one else could, how he'd shown her his inner self as no one alive or dead had seen. "Not everything was a mistake, Vladislaus..." Anna whispered, smiling up to him. "If you can truly love, even after selling your soul to the Devil, you cannot be completely evil." His mouth claimed hers again, wings stretching from both their backs. White feathers gleamed in the sun as they enveloped each other, creating a cocoon that almost glowed with love.
Velkan shook his head and moved on, muttering something about 'filthy hands all over his sister', shushed by his mother. Anna's head rested on Vladislaus' chest, feeling warm and safe for the first time.
"I always wished for an angel... My prayer has been granted, it seems..." he whispered, his voice a low rumble in his chest, vibrating on her cheek. Anna smiled and led him through the gates, her hand in his.
All done! Hope you liked! Now, for why I insisted you read this... In a shameless ploy to get people to review (or just for fun, which ever you want to call it) I've decided to make a little contest out of this. As some of you may have noticed, I enjoy giving chapters and stories titles based on songs. Well, the title of each chapter, End of All Hope, Ever Dream, and I Wish I Had an Angel, are all songs by the same artist. Your job is to figure out what the band is. The first review that I receive that has the right answer will win.
And what's the prize, you may ask? I will write a lemon, not necessarily for here if you don't want, featuring YOU (yes, you) and any of the characters that were used in this story. That's Dracula, Anna, the brides, and Velkan. You will give me a setting, basics of what you want to happen, and a little bit about how you want your character to act, so it's truly you and the sexy vampire/hunter/werewolf of your choice. If I get a good response, I'll do this for other stories I've been planning, meaning opportunities to have a shag with other fictional hotties, like Lucius Malfoy or Indiana Jones.
So, off you go, and good luck!
Alright, so ForeverACharmedOne got it... I'll have to do something a little more challenging next time... I was very tempted to use lines from songs, rather than titles... It was Nightwish, by the way.
Hey, just because there's no more prize doesn't mean I don't want reviews! I still like those, you know!
