Squad Unit 19: Hey everyone, and welcome to my 8th drabble for this archive. First off, I want to say Happy New Year to all of you. It's been an honor writing stories for you and I've had a total blast writing fics for you. ^.^ Now then, as you may have noticed, I haven't been posting very much lately... Well, that's due to three different reasons... 1: My job. Shift changes from day to night and back can reeaallly mess up your sleeping... O.o 2: Weather and internet. The weather has affected my internet on more than one occasion, and the internet itself has been a problem... Picking random times to go out for no reason and then staying out for a while. And 3: My computer. Up until now I've had to share one computer - an older desktop - with a relative of mine, who just about a year ago suddenly got into a Facebooking frenzy. I tried to deal with it, but I reached my breaking point in December. I decided to get myself a brand new laptop. After saving up some extra cash, I finally got one now. It's new, it's quick (thankfully) and the reason I bought it is to write. Now I can write when I please.

Now then, although I can write with more freedom now than ever before, internet issues and work schedules will still be a factor, those I can't control... But I have my own personal laptop now with which I can write. And now that the new year is here, I hope to jump back out here and post stories you'll all hopefully enjoy. Squad Unit 19 is back! ;D

Now then, this drabble was sort of a request. After posting my last drabbles from Of Love and Blood, I received a review and a pm asking me to write out a story detailing how Minnie became a vampire. Naturally I couldn't turn down a request from a fan, so here is the ficlet detailing that very part. ;D I was gonna surprise ya'll later when this story released, but the people who requested this got me too excited to wait. XD So I want to give a shout out and thanks to Taryn for the review and Squad Unit 16 for the pm. Thank you both and I hope you enjoy this. ;) So without further ado, here is your heart's desire...

Squad Unit 19.


OF LOVE AND BLOOD

It still hurt.

No matter how many times she saw his body, beaten, cut, battered, it still hurt. Even though she knew he was immortal and could heal himself, it still hurt.

It hurt her to see him hurt.

Minnie looked at the rip in his white button front shirt, seeing the ragged edges and the stained red areas, obviously his blood. She had offered to sew the shirt back, but he declined the offer. However, she would anyway.

She held up the shirt, seeing the size of the tear. Four inches in length and one inch wide. She cringed at the thought of how the cut on his body must have looked. It made her sick to her stomach for the thought to cross her mind. She gripped the washing machine for a moment, bracing herself as the thought of what he had endured crossed her mind.

It broke her heart and she felt like crying. Mickey shouldn't have to deal with that. Especially not alone. Sure, he had his brother Oswald, and his sister-in-law Ortensia, but was that really enough? Three vampires alone against hundreds, maybe thousands, of evil beings and creatures that wanted to destroy the world or enslave humanity.

Minnie looked at the shirt, and felt water trickle down her cheeks. She clutched the shirt to her chest as she let out a soft whimper, wiping her eyes. She'd only known Mickey for no more than two weeks, but already she felt such a strong, powerful connection to him, like it was destiny that had drawn them together. She knew she loved him, that she didn't doubt. And she knew already that she'd give up her own life if it meant keeping him safe from harm.

She was mortal. She couldn't live forever like him. He was immortal. That thought gave her some peace of mind, knowing he couldn't be killed by any normal means. But still, there were ways a vampire could be killed. She knew it, and so did he. It was a gamble he took every time he stepped out that door. A gamble she wished with every fiber of her being he didn't have to take.

She'd watched him already almost get killed once, and it was the hardest thing she'd ever witnessed or went through. She made a mental promise right then to help him as much as she could, but...

She looked down at herself. She was mortal. She was limited to what she could do. She hated feeling useless. She hated knowing he was facing the dangers of the world while she was safe from its harm. She hated not being able to help the way Oswald and Ortensia could. She wanted to be able to help, to stand by his side and fight whatever he faced with him. She... She wanted to live with him forever.

She made up her mind. If he was going to take a gamble than so was she.

Taking a deep breath, and smiling to herself, she made her way out of the laundry room, into the living room where she proceeded down the small hallway to the bathroom where he was taking a shower. She still felt guilty, him taking her into his apartment to keep her safe. But she knew as well as him that after the last incident that her own apartment wasn't safe for her anymore. Of course she wasn't living with him permanently, just until this whole ordeal was over, then she was free to move back into her own residence.

However, though she knew this, she secretly was loving the idea of being in his apartment with him 24/7. Call it a guilty pleasure, but she secretly enjoyed it.

Reaching the doorway, Minnie took a deep breath and knocked on the door. "Mickey?"

"Yeah?" she heard the vampire call from inside the room. "Is somethin' wrong?"

She could tell he sounded a tad worried, and jumped a bit when she heard him stumble a bit. If he fell, she wouldn't hesitate to break down the door and rush in just to make sure he was okay, whether he was indecent or not. "No, everything's fine," she assured him with a fond smile, grateful for his attention and focus on her well being. "I, um... I wanted to talk to you about something."

"Hang on a sec, I'm almost done."

Minnie waited patiently outside the door, wondering what he would think of her request. Would he disapprove, would he agree to it? Would he hate her because it made her look selfish? She shook her head. No, she had to remain positive. She had to do this.

She heard him shuffling around and heard him approach the door. As it opened, she was greeted with the warm face of the vampire she'd fallen head over heels for.

"The door was unlocked..." he pointed out with a light grin. She wasn't sure if he was being a pervert now or being protective but she blushed nonetheless.

"I didn't wanna just barge in..." She couldn't look him in the eye now, her face was far too pink.

He stepped out, continuing to dry his hair with a towel. He'd change from his torn clothes into something comfortable for the evening, which happened to be eye candy for her. A pair of camo lounge pants and no shirt, showing off that lightly muscular body of his. Yeah, she stole a glance at his body, so sue her.

"So what didja wanna talk about?" The two made their way back into the living room, where she sat down on the love seat.

"I, uh... I wanted... t-to ask you about something..." She was beginning to get nervous. She knew her request was selfish, but she'd rather be selfish and have him safe and in her life than to lose him.

He sat down next to her, giving her his full attention. "Yeah?"

"Well..." Minnie took a deep breath and just went for it. "For almost two weeks I've watched you fight, I've seen you come back cut, bruised, bleeding... I've seen the dangers you have to face, and I know what you have to deal with everyday..."

Mickey gulped a little. He was afraid she was going to quit because she couldn't handle being with him. Could she not handle being his girlfriend? He didn't blame her, but he couldn't lose her. He may be immortal, be her leaving was the one thing that would surely kill him.

"It's not fair for you to have to go through that."

He sighed, and looked at a picture of him, his brother and their family on the wall. "I know... But it's a decision I made. It's something I have to deal with."

She raised a hand to his cheek, making him look her in the eye. "But you shouldn't have to do it alone."

He quirked a brow. "What're ya sayin'?"

She took another deep breath, and looked into his eyes. What happen with her life from this point on came down to this one moment. "I love you, Mickey." She meant those words with all of her heart and soul, with every fiber of her being. "I love you so much, and I wanna be with you forever. I want us to be together forever." She caressed his cheek with her fingertips. "It's not fair seeing you get hurt and having to just sit back and watch. I'm tired of having to sit on the sidelines and watch you get hurt. It isn't fair. That's why..." She Swallowed the lump in her throat. It was now or never. "...I want you to bite me."

His pupils shrank. Did he hear right? "...What?"

"I want you to make me what you are."

He stood up quickly. "No, no I won't!"

"Please, Mickey..." she pleaded as she stood up.

He turned around to face her. "Do ya even realize what yer askin'?"

She nodded. "I do. I know what I'm doing."

"No ya don't. Ya don't realize what yer askin' me t' do."

She placed her hand on his shoulder. "Yes I do. I know exactly what I'm asking."

He shook his head. "No. I won't put you through that. You've seen what I go through, do ya really wanna do the same?"

"Yes!" she said honestly. There was a silent tension in the air as both remained silent for a few seconds. "I know exactly what I'm asking of you. I've thought about it and this is what I want."

He dropped his head. "I can't... I can't put you through that." He looked at her. "Everyday people reject us. They look at us as monsters, freaks, demons... They want us all dead because they're afraid of us."

"I'm not afraid of you," she said, meaning every word.

He sighed. "You'd be the first... Being a vampire is a burden... The stuff we have to deal with..."

She raised her hand to his cheek. "Then let's share the pain of that burden. Don't lock me out, let me in, let me help you."

"Is this really what ya want?"

"More than anything," was her honest reply. "I know what you have to deal with, and I know you shouldn't have to do it alone." She wrapped her arms around him in a warm embrace. "Not as long as I'm here with you. I want to share your burdens, so you won't have to carry them alone." She pulled away, looking up into his eyes. "Please, Mickey... Bite me. Make me what you are. Make us one in the same. Make me a vampire." She tilted her head, giving him easy access to her neck. "Bite me."

He had to admire her. She had guts, and had to love him to want to give up a mortal life for him. "You'll no longer be a mortal," he reminded her.

"So?" she grinned.

"You'll never have a normal life."

"Don't want one anyway. My life was dull and lifeless before you, and now my life has never been more exciting."

"You'll be immortal, like me."

She smiled dreamily as she moved a hand up to his cheek. "So? I always dreamt we could be together forever. Now we really can."

He chuckled. "Do ya really wanna put up with the same guy for an eternity?"

She giggled. "I wouldn't have it any other way. It'd be a dream come true. An eternity with you... That's my Heaven on earth."

He grinned. "I don't sparkle."

She laughed, and playfully slapped his shoulder. "Stop trying to make me change my mind! It's not gonna work." She stopped laughing and held him close to her. "I want to stay young with you, forever. I want to be with you, forever." She giggled. "And you may not really sparkle, but to me you do."

He quirked a brow. "Really, when?"

She blushed like crazy, adverting her gaze away from his. "...Like when you first get out of the shower..."

"And ya noticed?" he said with a big grin.

She used a finger to draw doodles on his chest. "...How could I not?" She shut up, her face turning red instantly as she realized she spoke aloud. Mickey burst ino laughter and Minnie gave him a light, playful punch in his arm.

"Are you sure you want this?" he asked.

She nodded. "Positive."

"Yer making an awfully big sacrifice..."

"I having nothing to lose but mortality." She wrapped her arms around his neck. "But I have a lot to gain by becoming a vampire like you. I don't want to go back to my old, boring, day-to-day life I had. I want something new, fresh, exciting. I want you. I'm willing to give up my immortality and my dull life for you, for a life with you in it. Please, Mickey... I want you to. I really want this. So... will you do it?"

He looked into her pleading, hopeful eyes, and although he was regretting this, he knew she was serious about her request. "...Okay... I'll do it."

Her eyes shone with brilliance. She squeed, and kissed his cheek. "Thanks, sweetie!" She pulled away a little and tilted her neck. "Will it hurt?"

"I'll make sure it doesn't," he promised.

She turned back to him, smiling warmly. "I trust you." She tilted her head again.

Mickey moved in closer to her neck, his heart beginning to race. Minnie's was also starting to do the same.

"Are you sure about this?"

She nodded, looking up at him. "Positive. I trust you. I trust you with my life, I know you won't hurt me." She leaned up and kissed him softly on his lips. "Have you... ever... bitten anyone before?" she asked curiously.

He shook his head. "Never. You're the first."

She smiled at that. "I'm happy and honored to be your first then." Her cheeks pinkening with her statement. She turned her head and exposed the side of her neck once more. "Do it. Bite me. Make me a vampire, so we can be one."

Mickey moved in close to her neck, taking the opportunity to take in her sweet scent. She smelled of jasmine and lilac. He moved closer and planted a soft kiss on her neck. A soft squeak escaped her lips as she trembled slightly. That felt really good. She sighed in delight as she felt his warm lips caress the left side of her neck. She shivered suddenly in delight as she felt his hot breath flow across her skin, which she was now learning was highly sensitive, either in general or just to him. Though she knew it was just to him.

A soft moan escaped her throat as she felt his lips against her neck and him suck lightly. She braced herself, for what she figured would be some pain. But it would be worth it. So long as she could stay young and live with him forever by her side.

"...Do it..." she urged with a soft, pleading sigh.

Then she tensed a bit when she felt his fangs graze across her skin, not breaking it, but just barely grazing over it. She braced herself. She was ready. She needed this. She wanted this. To be one and complete with him. To be a vampire. Him transforming her into a vampire would seal the deal. She would become his Mistress from that point on, and he her Master. This was it. There was no going back.

Then she felt it. His fangs broke slowly, gently and barely through her soft skin, but there was no pain. There was a slight prick for just a split second, but then nothing. Instead, what she now felt was indescribable. A pleasurable warmth flowed from the area he'd bitten through her body, making her quiver with delight. Her eyes rolled back into her head as she lost herself in the enjoyable sensation. She knew he was injecting the venom into her nessecerry to make her a vampire, but right now she could barely think.

"Oohh... Mickey..." she moaned. Instantly, she couldn't help but wonder what it would feel like for him to bite her elsewhere... If this much pleasure was coming from just one little bite, then how awesome would it feel to feel his love bites all over her body? Her mind was becoming fuzzy. She could barely remember her own name. But his was crystal clear on her mind. Her thoughts being of only him and a life with him. Be it the power of his glorious bite or the venom now coursing through her veins, she didn't know. But she reasoned it was the former.

Minnie was in Heaven. His amazing little bite was doing wonders to her mind and body. Her mind was filled with thoughts of moments of them together, both past and thoughts of the future. Some of her thoughts were simple; images of them holding hands, taking strolls together, waking up together side-by-side... But others were more intimate, more perverted. Thoughts of them making out, and things heating up and turning into much, much more... She knew he wasn't the one making her have those thoughts, in a general sense. It was all her own mind and body. He hadn't the power to control her thoughts, yet he had consumed every one of them unbeknownst to himself. If her mother knew of the thoughts going through her mind right now, she would disown Minnie. Minnie herself wasn't even aware just how perverted her own mind could be, but now she was seeing it in full swing as she lost herself to the power of his love bite. His bite finally took its toll and she passed out, both from the venom and from the pleasure.

After what seemed like forever but was really just fifteen seconds, Mickey pulled away from her, and held her now limp body in his arms. He looked at her carefully, and sighed with relief seeing her still breathing and smiling slightly. Scooping her up, he laid her down gently on the love seat. He smiled warmly at the young girl as he caressed her cheek with the backs of his fingers. He licked his lips. He had tasted her blood, the blood of a virgin. He recalled his grandfather saying that he would know the taste of a virgin's blood, that he would just know. And right now he knew he'd tasted it. He felt guilty, but her blood, as well as her lips and skin, were the sweetest thing he'd ever tasted in his entire life.

He knelt beside the love seat, eyeing her closely. He saw a few slight twitches from her body, indicating the venom was doing its job. She was transforming. He took her hand and held it, letting her know he was there. He leaned down and kissed her softly on the spot he'd bitten, whispering an apology as he did so. Holding one of her delicate small hands, he used his free hand to stroke the top of her head, between her ears. This area, unbeknownst to him, and actually to Minnie herself, was basically a relaxation button.

Her eyes remained closed as the venom now flowing through her veins was making the changes to her body. In her mind, Minnie was still having dreams of her and the vampire boy together, and him holding her hand and massaging her scalp between her ears were simply adding to it. She dreamt of them watching the next vampire romance movie in the theater while secretly being vampires themselves, baring their fangs only to each other, hiding from the rest of the world in the darkness of the room. She dreamt of them flying through the air with their bat wings holding hands as they soared underneath a moonlit sky. And she dreamt of intimate moments with him, things that made her blush even in real time, which Mickey noticed. These dreams even made her moan his name softly in her sleep, which Mickey heard. She dreamt of them making out in the theater, not giving a care about the movie, just each other. This was just one of many thoughts racing through her mind.

Then she stopped twitching. The venom had run its course.

Her eyes gently began to flutter open as she awoke from her sleep-like state. And instantly, the first thing she saw, were the warm eyes of her boyfriend, which made her smile warmly back. "...Mmm... Mickey..." She felt her strength gradually returning.

He smiled, and rubbed between her ears. "Hey, kid... Ya had me worried there for a bit."

She sighed, loving the sensation of him rubbing between her ears. "Mmm... I'm okay, sweetie."

He leaned down and kissed her forehead, making her sigh and blush. "How ya feel?"

She sat up, rubbing the side of her head. "I don't... think I feel any different." She looked at him expectantly. "Did it work? Am I a vampire?"

He could sense the hopefulness and excitement of her tone. "Yep. Yer a vampire."

Her eyes sparkled with excitement as she smiled wide, then lunged at him, glomping him in a hug. "Oh, thank you, Mickey!" She pulled away just enough to kiss his cheek a few times before pulling away. "So I really am a vampire?"

He gestured toward the mirror on the wall. "See for yourself."

Minnie looked at him puzzled. "I thought vampires don't have reflections."

He chuckled. "Old tale. We can if we choose to. Now go look at yerself."

Minnie bounced up from the love seat over to the mirror and looked at herself, but didn't notice any changes. "I don't look any different..."

He walked up behind her. "Oh, yer a vampire alright... Just imagine yourself with fangs."

Minnie looked from his reflection to her own, and did as he instructed. She closed her eyes and imagined herself with fangs. She suddenly felt a tingle in her gums and a sort of stretching sensation. She peeked one eye open to see herself, noting nothing different. Opening her other eye, she looked at him in the mirror. He nodded with a warm smile, and she opened her mouth a little.

There were a pair of fangs. She was a vampire.

Her eyes widened. There were smaller than his own, but she really liked them. She licked over them with her tongue, feeling them. Then an excited squeal erupted from her as she bounced a little. "I have fangs! I'm a vampire!"

He chuckled. "And a cute one too!"

His statement made her blush.

"Yer a fledgling vampire," he stated.

"What's a fledgling?"

"A fledgling is a young vampire, one who has just recently been transformed. Your powers and everythin' aren't in full swing yet."

"Soo... how do I unlock my full power?" she asked.

"Most do when they suck human blood for the first time."

Minnie cringed. "I... have to... drink blood?"

Mickey shook his head. "Not us. I haven't had a drink of it since I was born. Well... until I... tasted yours..." He blushed, and she matched it. "See, my father created somethin' special; he created what he called 'synthetic blood'".

She tilted her head. "'Synthetic blood'?"

"Yeah, it's a special mixture of herbal ingredients that have all the same properties as real blood, but lasts twice as long. One drink will last a whole month! And it's good, too! Once ya drink it, you'll like it."

"Okay..." She gave a smile, actually curious about this special drink he had.

"But until you drink real human blood, you'll probably just remain a fledgling..."

Her ears perked. "Do have as much power as you?"

"As a fledgling, no. Ya still have a lot of power, but not exactly as much."

The little vampire shrugged. "Mm, doesn't matter to me. As long as I still have enough power to help you, I don't mind being a fledgling forever."

"Right now, you're in stage one. Now imagine yerself as a mortal, without fangs."

She did as she was told and thought of it. Her fangs disappeared.

"Now yer in yer normal form. We have four stages of being a vampire; stage one is your regular form. In stage two, yer fangs are present."

She looked back into the mirror. "So what other changes can I do?"

"There's a few more things ya can do. As a vampire yer more flexible. Ya can do things ya couldn't normally do."

"Will you teach me?" she asked hopefully, looking at him through the mirror.

"'A course I will," he answered, much to her beaming enjoyment and excitement.

"So what else can I do?" she asked curiously, excited to learn more about her new powers and abilities. "I've seen your eyes turn red before... Can mine do that too?"

"Sure can. Eye color can change from yer normal color to red depending on the situation."

"Such as?"

"They can turn red at will, you have the ability to change them. But they can also turn red if you get angry or in, um..." He looked down shyly.

Her now increased hearing ability allowed her to hear him say, "...in intimate moments..." She blushed.

"Just imagine that eye color and they'll change. But they can only change color in stage two and three."

Doing as he instructed, Minnie looked at her reflection once more, and imagined red eyes. Instantly, her eyes began to change from dark brown to the same beautiful shade of bright red she'd seen his eyes change to. "Wow!" she squeaked excitedly. "That's so cool!" She turned to face him fully. "How do I look?"

He looked at her. He had never see a more beautiful creature of the night. Her red eyes shimmering with excitement, her little fangs peeking out from under her top lip. Beautiful and cute didn't do her justice. "Absolutely stunning, my dear."

Her cheeks pinkened, and she leaned up to kiss his cheek. Then she thought for a second. "Have you ever... bitten anyone else before? ...Another girl?"

He shook his head. "Yer the first girl I've ever bitten. And you're the most beautiful vampire I've ever seen." His compliment made her blush, then he panicked slightly. "N-Not that I've ever seen any other vampire girls before! O-Or looked at any before!"

She giggled and looked at him cooly. "Nice save." Turning back to the mirror, she tilted her head, seeing the bite marks on the side of her neck.

"You can heal yourself. You can make those marks disappear."

Minnie raised a hand to stroke her fingertips across the marks fondly. She smiled. "I wanna keep 'em."

He quirked a brow. "What? Why?"

She turned to him fully. "As a reminder."

He looked confused. "Of what?"

She circled her arms around his neck. "Of the night my old life ended, and my new life began. I want to keep these bite marks, because you gave them to me, you bit me and made me a vampire. I wanna keep these marks as a reminder of the night I became what you are, the night we became one. This mark will serve as a reminder of this night."

"Of what ya lost?" he asked saddened, feeling guilty for having bitten her.

"No," she assured with a warm smile, "of what I gained." With that, she kissed him deeply, right on his lips, her first kiss as a vampire, as his mistress, their first kiss as vampires. As she kissed him, she realized that she could hold her breath longer, which meant she could remain lip-locked with him longer. The first perk already to being a vampire. A moan escaped her throat into his mouth as she indulged in their kiss, one leg raising behind her she leaned into him. After about seventeen seconds however, her lungs began to burn, and she had to pull away, gasping for breath as her lips pulled away from his with a smack. As her head stopped spinning, she rested her forehead against his. "Thank you. For making me what you are," she said breathlessly. She kissed him lightly once more before pulling away. "So what're the other two forms?"

He smirked. "In stage three, ya get wings."

Her eyes widened. "...Wings?"

"Yep. Just like mine." Entering stage three, Mickey's bat wings spread out from his back, his jet black wings being almost as long as he was tall. His fangs now bared, and his wings in full view, he was a handsome and amazing sight to behold.

"Wow..."Minnie just gawked at him for a moment. A shirtless, handsome and totally hot hunk of a vampire standing in front of her. Vampire or not, it was taking a huge amount of will power not to pounce on him right there. She knew better, but her body didn't care. Wait till we're married! she kept telling herself. She moved closer and gently ran her fingertips across his beautiful wings. Sure they might have a leathery look and feel to them, and they might scare mortals, but to her they were simply beautiful. She'd seen his wings only a time or two before, and wondered why she was so attracted to them. Now she knew.

They were a part of him. And they suited him. Like the rest of him, they were attractive. They were simple in design, yet they held a mighty appearance. They looked powerful and quick, and reminded her of midnight for some reason. As she stroked her fingers over his wings, she watched as they twitched.

"They're k-kinda ticklish..." he chuckled.

She grinned deviously. She'd have to use that to her advantage later... "So I have my own wings?"

"Just imagine yourself with 'em."

Closing her eyes, Minnie imagined a pair of wings, like Mickey's. She felt the changes in her back, her skin tingling, stretching, but like with her gums not uncomfortably so. And right there, out sprang a pair of wings. Opening her eyes, she looked behind her. "I have wings! I have wings! Ha ha!" They were jet black like her lover's, and were similar in design. They were also smaller than his own. She brought one around to touch it, and found it, like his, seemed to be rather ticklish. She grinned sheepishly.

Stroking her fingers over it, she took a moment to admire her new set of wings. They were much smaller than his, and also had leathery look and feel to them.

"How do they look?" she asked, giving them a little flap as she looked at him.

He just stared for a moment. "Yer gonna make me have a heart attack."

"Huh? Why?" she asked curiously.

He grinned goofily. "Because yer so gosh darn cute! Hnngg!" He gripped his chest playfully, and Minnie blushed as she giggled shyly, looking back to her wings as she couldn't dare look him in the eyes right now.

"It could take some getting used to. Go on, give 'em a go," he encouraged.

She found it actually very easy to use them. She gave them a flap, and giggled. She laughed with joy and excitement as she flapped them several more times and found herself hovering off the floor. "I'm flying!" she gasped with surprise. She proceeded to do a loop in the living room, laughing with joy as she did. She landed right in front of him. "Oh, that's so cool! What else can I do?"

"Well, now that yer a vampire, you have increased sight, hearing, speed, strength and agility." He looked over to the loveseat. "Try picking that up."

"Um... Okay..." Minnie walked over and took hold of the edge of it, expecting it to be very heavy. However, she lifted the whole thing up like it only weighed two pounds. She gasped as she realized what had just happened. "Whoa! That's so cool!" Letting it down, she looked back to him.

"Now let's test out yer speed." He sprinted down the hall into the bedroom. "Now run in here!"

Minnie grinned. "Yes, Master." She took off in a blur, stopping nose to nose in front of him, in only a second. "You called?" she grinned playfully.

His face red, he fumbled for the words. "...Speed's good. Now for hearing and sight. Go back into the living room and see if you can hear me."

She nodded. "Got it." She sprinted back into the living room and listened carefully.

"Can you hear this?" she heard him say softly. Wow, she was liking this hearing thing. Mickey suddenly felt a wisp of air behind him.

"Yep, loud and clear," Minnie whispered softly in his ear. She was loving this speed thing more than the hearing thing. She could catch him in so many tickle fights and glomp hugs with this speed deal. Oh, yeah, she was really loving this.

He whipped around, seeing the young mouse standing behind him with a cute smile, her hands behind her back, baring her tiny fangs. His heart thudded.

"G-Good... Now yer sight." Mickey walked over and flipped off the light switch. "Now see if ya can see me."

She could. Clearly. It was as if she had night vision, only things weren't green. "Wow!"

"Can ya see?"

Giggling, she made her way over to him, and pecked his lips. No matter what, she knew her way to his lips. "Foundja."

He switched on the light and she burst into a fit of cute giggles when she saw his red face.

She pecked his nose cutely then turned back to the hallway. "What's next? Agility?" She smirked and proceeded to do a few cartwheels and backflips down the hall, stopping in the living room with her arms raised. "Ta-da!"

He just stared, amazed. "Yer enjoyin' this, aren'tcha?"

She giggled. "How could I not? I feel better than I ever have in my life!"

"Ya don't have to close yer eyes anytime ya want to change into a form, it'll become just as natural as breathing."

"So what's next?"

"Welp, there's jus' one more thing."

"Ooh, tell me, tell me!" She bounced excitedly, her eyes a glitter.

"The final stage, although we very seldom ever use it... The bat stage."

Her ears twitched. "The bat stage? Wait... You mean I can actually turn into a bat?"

"I'll show ya. But don't freak out on me, okay?"

She nodded in agreement.

Mickey breathed deeply, then proceeded to transform into his final form. In a flash and poof of black smoke he transformed before her eyes into...

The cutest little bat she'd ever seen.

He fluttered in front of her, his body now that of a bat, his legs and feet now that of a bat, and his wings that of his own. But his head and face were exactly the same, that of his normal mouse form. A big smile formed on Minnie's face as she squealed in delight.

"I toldja not to freak out," he reminded.

She shook her head quickly. "No, no, it's not that! It's just you're so... cute!" She giggled. He fluttered up to her and she held out her hand, him landed in her palm. His little feet tickled her palm, and she suddenly had a wicked, very intimate idea, though she tried to push it away.

"This is our final form."

"You're just so cute!" She giggled. She couldn't resist the urge and raised her free hand and tickled his tummy with her index finger, making him squirm and laugh. Minnie giggled as she tickled him, unable to contain her own fits of laughter. "I could just stick you in my pocket... you'd be a pocket pet." She held him up to her and kissed his head gently, making him blush. Then she rubbed between his ears with her finger, making his tongue flop out in delight, much to her own amusement and enjoyment, giggling at his goofy expression.

"As fun as that sounds..." He flew up and landed between her ears, behind her bow. "How about this instead?" He nibbled on her ear.

"Oohh..." she moaned at the enjoyable sensation, then giggled as his tiny teeth began to tickle her skin. He flew down and landed in her palm again.

"You're a sneaky little bat..." she grinned, half scolding, half joking, poking his belly gently.

He shrugged. "Eh... Comes with the territory."

"So what can ya do in this form?"

"Basically just fly around unseen, as we're mistaken for normal bats. But we hardly ever use this form. Wanna try it?"

A sudden realization hit her, as her cheeks reddened. "What... happens to your clothes when you change into a bat?"

"That's the magical part about it, my dear," he grinned proudly. "Whatever yer wearin' when ya transform will disappear until you transform back."

"So... I won't be... naked?" Her cheeks were now bright pink.

"Nah, you'll be fine," he assured. "So wouldja like to try?"

"Sure, but... how?"

"Easy. Just imagine yourself as a bat." He made it sound so easy.

Stepping over to the love seat, Minnie held her hand out letting him hop off and onto the cushion, then, standing up straight, she took a deep breath. "Welp...
Here goes..." She closed her eyes and imagined herself as a bat. She felt her body tingle a little, and when she opened her eyes, she was much shorter. Looking at herself, she realized she was, indeed, a bat. "Whoa!" She extended her wings and looked down at her body.

"Like it?"

She looked up at the voice, seeing her boyfriend looking down at her from the love seat. "Yeah!"

"Fly up to the mirror and look at yourself," he said.

Looking at her wings, Minnie assumed it was as easy as flying in her mouse form with the wings. She gave them a flap, then started flapping, and before she knew it, she was hovering in the air. "Oh, my! Hee hee!" She found flying to be much easier than she thought, and flew up to the mirror to see her new appearance.

She had a bat body, legs and her normal wings, but her head and face and ears were the same as her mouse body. Even her bow was still on her head in front of her ears. "Wow..." She done a loop in the air as she giggled gleefully. She flew down to the love seat and landed in front of her lover. Like in their normal mouse forms, she was smaller than him. "How do I look?" She turned her body left and right, showing off the changes.

Mickey grinned. "Hold on, I hafta do this." He transformed back into his stage two appearance and looked down at her from his sitting position. Now she felt much, much tinier. He chuckled as he extended a finger and tickled her little tummy, making the little girl mouse/bat burst into a fit of giggles as she fell onto her back, squirming from his tickles. Then he stopped tickling her and turned over his hand, and she hopped into his palm with hesitation. She began to have devious little ideas for how she could use this form...

"So... How do ya like bein' a bat?"

Minnie extended her wings a little. "I like it. It's fun! But I like just being in my normal form, too."

"These powers are yours now. You can use them however ya want," he said.

Minnie flew up and landed on his head between his ears and planted a soft nibble one of them. "Thank you," she whispered in his ear. She flew back down and landed next to him, transforming back into her second form, all mouse but with her tiny fangs bared, her eyes still their normal dark brown hue. "Thank you, for making me what you are." Her smile was warm as she leaned close to him.

Mickey still felt that pang of guilt in his chest. This girl he'd only known for a couple of weeks was now a vampire, all because of him. He tried to hide his guilt but she saw right through him.

Raising a hand, she cupped his cheek. "Mickey, please don't blame yourself for this. I'm the one that asked you to do it. Don't blame yourself."

"But... Ya coulda had a normal life..."

She nuzzled him reassuringly. "I wouldn't go back to my old life for anything. This is who I am now, and who I want to be. A vampire, your partner, and..." She leaned up to kiss his cheek. "...your lover..." The two young vampires shared a gaze. And Mickey smiled.

"There was no way out of it, either, huh?"

She giggled as she shook her head. "Nope."

Suddenly, something hit Mickey, his eyes widening in terror. "Oh, man, what about yer parents?! When they find out I turned ya they'll-"

"They won't know."

He turned to her, confusion written on his features. "Huh?"

She gave a sure smile. "They don't have to know."

"How ya plan on keeping it a secret from 'em?"

"It was my decision. It's what I wanted."

"Won't they freak out if they find out?"

Minnie couldn't deny this fact. "Well... Yeah, they'll definitely freak out... But we needn't worry about that right now. We can keep it hidden." Minnie placed her hand atop his. "We'll figure it out, together. This'll be our little secret."

Mickey smiled, seeing her reassurance, and turned his hand up to take hers into his. "Yeah..."

Minnie chuckled softy, and leaned up to peck his lips. Pulling away, she cuddled up to him, pulling her legs and feet up onto the cushion as she snuggled into his warm body. He moved one arm around her as he relaxed, everything still sinking into brain. After a moment, she looked up at him, and he seen a twinkle in her eyes and her sly expression.

Her fangs now bared, she smiled up at him devilishly and cooly. "Just one more question..." She lifted a hand to draw little hearts on his chest with her index finger. "What happens if a girl vampire bites a boy vampire that's just bitten her?"
