Thank you for your wonderful reviews! You guys are great! I know that I haven't updated this story in a while (the last time being April 23), but I'll definitely update now.
Elena's Apartment – That Evening...
Mikey tried to be patient as he and Damon waited for Elena to finish getting ready. It wasn't that he didn't want to wait, which he did, but the eagerness to be a vampire was overtaking him at that moment and he couldn't help but excited. Damon noticed how fidgety the boy was.
"Calm down, Mikey," he said. "We can't start the festivities without Elena."
"I'm sorry, Damon," the boy replied. "It's just that I'm really excited about becoming a vampire."
"I see that," said Damon. "It'll happen, I'll make sure of that. It's just that you're not the only one who's going to turn tonight."
No sooner did he say this than the door opened and out stepped Elena, wearing a beautiful white dress. She smiled at both Damon and Mikey, apparently liking their reaction. Damon approached her and took her hands in his, kissing her softly.
Stepping back, he said, "You look beautiful."
"Thank you," said Elena. "I thought maybe I'd treat this like it's a wedding."
"If you put it like that, I guess it could be," said Damon. "I mean, you are going to be joining me for all eternity." He smiled at Mikey. "I know that Mikey is anxious to get this show on the road, so we better not waste any time."
Elena nodded. "So, where are we going to do this exactly? We can't very well do it in here or the neighbors will get suspicious."
"How about the roof?" said Damon. "There will be no one to bother us there."
Elena nodded again. "Doesn't matter to me, as long as I get to be a vampire."
Damon smiled and they went into Elena's room, where Damon saw a fire escape outside of her window. He opened the window and climbed out onto the fire escape, helping Elena and Mikey out. Once they were safely outside, they climbed up the steps until they reached the roof. Damon scanned the area first, to see if they were actually alone up here. Finding no one, he led Elena and Mikey to a place where he could do this, finding a spot in the center of the roof.
"What did I tell you? Nice and private. I doubt anyone will come up here until much later, so we have the roof to ourselves for a while." He looked at Elena and smiled. "Ladies first, amore mia."
Elena stepped forward and then looked at Damon curiously. "One question, though. How will we complete our transitions?"
"I'll find somebody who wouldn't mind donating to a worthy cause." He rolled up his sleeve, exposing his wrist. "You ready?"
Elena nodded and then Damon bit into his wrist and gave it to her. Elena closed her eyes and drank his blood, which tasted surprisingly warm and sweet, like a nectar almost. She didn't expect it to taste this way. To be honest, she was expecting a bitter, metallic taste. Once he was sure she had enough, Damon removed his wrist and took her face in his hands, kissing her passionately before snapping her neck, catching her as she fell and laying her down on the ground gently. He looked at Mikey, who was watching from where he stood.
"Stay here with her. I'll be back in a second."
Mikey nodded and Damon vamp sped to the door to the roof and descended the stairs. A few seconds passed before he arrived, along with a girl he had compelled into thinking that she was going to be attending some wild party. No sooner did he return than Elena took a big gasp and woke up. Damon smiled when he saw that she was awake.
"I brought you a worthy donor," he said. "She's compelled to think that she's attending a wild party."
Elena looked at her victim. She was very pretty, with red hair that hung in curls to her shoulders. Licking her lips as the aroma of her blood reached her nose, causing her new fangs to pop out. Wasting no time, she was at the girl's neck and tasted her warm, sweet blood. Damon watched her as she continued to feed and he thought she had enough, he pulled her off.
"The trick is not to kill them." He then looked at the girl and added, "Forget what just happened here. You were at a party and things got rowdy, and you decided to leave. Now, go home."
The girl nodded and walked away. Elena licked her lips and retracted her fangs as she watched the girl leave. She then looked at Damon, curious as to what that was.
"What was that?"
Damon smiled. "A little something I used called Snatch, Eat, Erase. It's very effective if done properly. I'll teach you how to do it." He looked at Mikey. "Your turn, Mikey."
Mikey nodded and stepped forward. He had overheard what Damon was talking about and was curious what this whole Snatch, Eat, Erase thing was all about. "You think you can show me that technique, Damon?"
"Yes, buddy, I'll show you," said Damon. "You and Elena will learn it together." He used his other wrist because the one he used for Elena wasn't completely healed yet. "Here you go."
Mikey eagerly grabbed his wrist and drank his friend's blood. He found that he liked the taste right away. It had a pleasant taste, not bitter or metallic at all. Once the boy had his fill, Damon took his wrist back, took his face in his hands, and snapped his neck, repeating the same thing he had done with Elena.
"I'll be right back," he said. "Watch him for me, I'm going to find a donor for him."
Elena nodded and watched as he left. She then turned her attention to Mikey, who for the moment was still out cold from having his neck snapped. She was still watching him when Damon returned, with a girl slightly younger than the first, and a blonde. He had compelled this one to think that she was meeting some guy. No sooner did he return than Mikey took a gasp of air, getting to his feet. He saw his victim before him and licked his lips, his fangs extending.
Before Damon could say anything, Mikey was at the girl's neck, drinking hungrily. Elena watched him and then pulled him off of her, which was met with a bit of a protest. Thankfully, she was able to keep him from attacking again.
"Mikey, that's enough," she said. "You don't want to kill her." She then looked at the girl. "Forget what happened here. You came up here to meet someone, but they never showed, so you gave up and left. Now, go home."
The girl nodded and walked away. Damon smiled at this. "Impressive. I think you two are going to get a hang of Snatch, Eat, Erase in no time."
Note: Better late than never, huh? Both Elena and Mikey are vampires now. Stay tuned!
