A/N This is my first Barnalia fan-fiction. It is based on the 2012 film, not the original television series. Please review. Enjoy
He'd caught her using his blood to make herself immortal. He'd caught her in the middle of the act, and was now walking towards her boasting about his ability to drain the life out of a human being in a mere 5 seconds.
"Please don't kill me. You're a good man, you're a gentleman. Forgive me." Julia whimpered as Barnabas began to trap her against the wall. She could feel the cold stone wall behind her and knew that she had no chance of escape. There was nothing she could do.
"I am not gentle and I do not forgive." Barnabas replied before pulling his head back and revealing is vampire fangs. He was ready to take the death blow and drain Julia of her life. Julia knew she needed to say it, she knew she needed to stop this.
"I love you Barnabas." Julia desperately shouted. She was impressed when Barnabas froze. "I love you, I have ever since you were so kind to me that day. Do you remember you called me beautiful? I really appreciated it, it made me feel…special. I love you, Barnabas. That's why I did this, so I could be like you and live forever. Maybe then you would look at me in a different way.
Barnabas drew back his head, hiding his vampire fangs. He stared at her for what seemed like decades. He didn't say anything, he just looked at her. Julia felt uncomfortable against his stare. She tried to stare back to give the illusion that she was not intimidated by him. However every so often her gaze drifted down to her bare feet, which she shifted uncomfortably.
"I apologise if I've made you think that we could ever be together, but my heart belongs to Victoria. She's the only woman who I could love. I am sorry Julia for any confusion." Barnabas said after the excruciating silence. Julia continued to look down at her feet, feeling more uncomfortable than ever. "You still shouldn't have Julia took this moment to cut him off. She grabbed his face and pulled his lips down to hers. She wrapped her arms around his neck, making it impossible for him to push her away. Julia continued to kiss him, pulling herself closer to him; she felt his arms rest on her waist and was encouraged to carry on. She felt Barnabas deepen their kiss, pulling her closer to him. He began to back up towards the hospital bed that was placed in the centre of the room.
Barnabas sat down on the bed and encouraged Julia to wrap her legs around his waist. While doing this they continued to kiss passionately. Barnabas kept on pulling her closer to him, not allowing her to escape his grasp. They both pulled away at the same time, looking at each other for what seemed like an eternity. Julia looked into Barnabas' eyes while biting her lip. She did not know what he was thinking or what he was going to do next. She took this as her moment to put him in his place.
"Your heart belongs to Victoria does it? Well it doesn't seem like that." She said while pushing herself away from Barnabas and letting her feet rest back in the floor. "I am sorry Barnabas about this whole blood transfusion business.
"It's fine, if you promise to stop this. It's not fair on me or you. You do not want this awful curse inflicted on you." Barnabas said while playing with his hands and trying to avoid eye contact with Julia. "My heart does still belong to Victoria." On these words Julia turned her body back towards Barnabas, she hastily walked towards Barnabas and pushed his head up so that he was looking at her.
"Then why did you kiss me back? That wasn't just a 'pass the time' kiss. Do yourself a favour, and me for that matter, and tell me the truth." Julia said while looking at him, she had to resist the urge to kiss him again. Her heart was pounding loudly against her chest, and she was sure that he could hear it. Barnabas moved his head forward and caught her lips against his. Unlike last time it was a tender kiss, they wasn't a trace of heated passion. It was loving and gentle, nothing more than that.
"You're lying to yourself, Barnabas" Julia said after they pulled away. "Why must you lie to yourself?
"Because I love Victoria." Barnabas replied while walking away from Julia. "I love her, nobody else matters.
"Nobody else matters. Then what was that, what was that kiss? You're the one who kissed me not the other way around." With this she got up and walked over to her table which was littered with bottles filled with different alcohol.
"That was just a kiss." Barnabas said
"Oh fuck you Barnabas. You know what I will carry on with this blood transfusion, because that's what I want to do, I want to be what you are, I want to live for ever; with you." Julia shouted while the drink she had in her hand sloshed about in the glass, spilling over the edges and landing on the floor.
"I will not allow you to do that!" Barnabas yelled before running towards Julia and pushing her against the wall. "I'm going to finish what I started and there is nothing that you can do to stop me." With that Barnabas bit her neck, and began to drain the life out of her body. Julia's lifeless body fell to the floor in a heap. Barnabas stared at her for a while before leaning down and picking her up. He placed her body on the hospital bed that they had only previously been sitting on together.
"I'm sorry Julia, you left me no choice." Barnabas said as he touched Julia's cold cheek with his long finger. He slowly leaned down and kissed her lips softly. "Goodbye Julia." He hastily wrapped her body up, leaving her head outside of the material; it seemed more ethical in his eyes. Barnabas left her body on the bed and went off to find Willie; he needed to dispose of the body as quickly as possible.
Little did he know that when he left the room, Julia's chest began to rise and fall. It wasn't over yet.
