((Again, I am posting this story as well. So yeah. Once again, please do NOT steal my work, and claim it as your own. Savvy? Thank you.))
Another love story between two women. So, I apologize if this story disgusts you. However, of course there will be drama, swearing, violence and the use of alcohol. Viewer Discretion is advised.)
The year was 1805, beautiful Victorian Era. The houses were decorated in beauty. But there was one family that stood out from the rest, the Antebellum's, they were rich beyond belief. Their names were: Count Edvard and Countess Erzsebet. They were known as the Hungarians, seeing they hailed from Hungary. And during this time, Countess Erszebet was pregnant. She always wanted a little girl. Her husband wanted a son. But deep down, he couldn't care less of what gender their child was. But they both knew that whomever they had, the child would grow up in a very rich and healthy environment. As the months slowly went by, Erzsebet walked in and saw her husband before the fire place,
"Darling, what has you so bothered?" She asked in a calm voice, "I'm worried, that you and I will not be able to give the life to our unborn child, that we never had." Edvard whispered, Erzsebet looked towards her husband, then sat before him, "My love, our child will grow up in an amazing loving home, our son or daughter will have just that. A life we never had. Edvard, I do have a name if the child is a girl, Amalia." Edvard leaned in and kissed his wife, "I love that name." He mustered. He rested his forehead against his wife's as they sat before the fire.
Erzsebet screamed bloody murder, as she began pushing. Edvard paced back and forth as he watched the doctor try to calm his wife, as well as try and get the baby out, "Erzsebet, please breathe." The doctor tried to calm her down, "I am breathing! Can't you hear me breathe?!" She yelled, "That wasn't lady like." Edvard joked, "Right now, I'll be damned being a lady!" Erzsebet was gripping the sheets as she screamed loudly, "I hate you, Edvard! I HATE YOU!!!" She screamed, Edvard took her outburst like a grain of salt, he knew she was in pain.
Erzsebet was growing weak, as she was about to give up. The room echoed with crying. The doctor was now holding a baby, "Congratulations, its a girl." The doctor cleaned up the baby, and handed the child to Edvard, "Amalia, our little Amalia." He whispered, he walked too Erzsebet, who by now, was breathing normally, "Let me look at her." Edvard slowly handed their daughter over, "She is beautiful." He whispered, "Looks just like her mother." Erzsebet blushed, "Yes, but has your prefect blue eyes."
Erzsebet woke up in the dead of night, hearing Amalia crying, "Bloody hell, she never stops." Erzsebet whispered, "She is a baby, Erzsebet. She'll be like this until she is a lady." Edvard slowly arose, "I shall attend to her, you should try and rest. You've been pushing yourself lately, and rest has become a second priority. Please, love, rest." Edvard leaned down and kissed his wife, and walked towards the bedroom where Amalia was sleeping in, "Why hello, little one." Edvard whispered, as he slowly picked up Amalia. "Ah shhh, shhh, daddy is here. No need to cry, sweetie." Edvard rocked his daughter trying to get her to sleep again. Edvard walked towards the lonely rocking chair, and sat down. He began to rock back and forth. After a few hours, Amalia was asleep, but then again so was Edvard. Erzsebet awoke the next morning and walked towards Amalia's room. She smiled at the cute site that was before her. She slowly walked in, and placed a blanket over them.
Erzsebet noticed that Amalia was rather smart, she had watched her parents go to the outhouse, and use the restroom. So, Amalia assumed that she needed to use the bathroom that way as well. Amalia literally potty trained herself. Erzsebet and Edvard taught her how to walk, and her first words were of course "Dada" then "Mama." Erzsebet and Edvard were so happy to have Amalia in their lives. They couldn't stop praising her, nor could they stop spoiling her. And usually with all of that spoiling comes lots of problems in the future.
-------------------------------------------The Years Passed----------------------
Amalia was now a teenager, and in Edvard and Erzsebet's eyes, she was a lady. "We need to have the talk with our daughter, Erzsebet." Edvard stated, "Yes, how when you mess with fire, the stark comes and drops off a child. Edvard, darling, now is not the time. She is only interested in her school work, please leave at that." Erzsebet whispered, "Fine, we shall, but soon, my love. She needs to know." He whispered. "Oh, mother. Father, alas where could you be?" Amalia called out. She saw her parents coming out of a room, the parlor. "Oh, has you not slept with each other?" Erzsebet laughed, "No, this wasn't of us sleeping together, Amalia. And it would be wise to watch that mouth of yours. You could never know of who would wish to cut it out." Erzsebet smiled eerily.
"Mother, I've hear that so many times before this, and after awhile, you slowly believe that this is a soft tale that parents state, to keep their child from speaking ill with retched ideals." Amalia stated, "Ah, a smart on we have, my darling Edvard." Edvard smiled, "Alas we do. Oh, shite!" Edvard whispered, "Edvard, watch thy tongue!" Erzsebet whispered, "Forgive me, I must run into town." Amalia cocked her head to the side, "Father, may I keep you company? I get rather bored here, and I've yet been to town. Must you leave me to rot within the walls of solitude?" She asked, Erzsebet looked towards her husband, "She has been reading again." Erzsebet mustered, "Well, lets go child. We haven't a moment to waste."
Edvard and Amalia walked to the end of their porch to see their carriage. Their carriage was black with a gold detailing. They were after all rich, "Father, what has mother all bothered?" She asked, he sighed softly, "She worries about you, and of you." Amalia scoffed, "I'm a lady, father. And a lady only shows respect." Amalia smiled, as she let her black gloves brush against her blood red dress. She hummed ever so softly. "My child, are you alright? Lately you've seem rather distant." Edvard whispered, "Oh father, a lady does not speak of secrets. Nor will I share what is upon my mind. For you see, I do not wish to share what has my mind completely cloudy with darkness, and utter betrayal. Why father, that would be utterly absurd if I spoke with an ill tongue." Amalia finally looked out the window of the carriage. She sighed ever so softly, as she smiled as the scenery passed them.
Once they were in town, the driver helped Amalia out. Everyone stopped and stared. Amalia was gorgeous, she was much like a porcelain doll. She wasn't too pale, though. Her bright blue hues, and her long raven locks, made men and even women stop and turn. People murmured to each other, "Do not pay any attention to them, my child." Amalia smirked, "Oh, father." Amalia followed her father to ever shop. But things did change when she saw this gorgeous female walk in. "Who is that, father?" Edvard sighed softly, "Come with me, Amalia." They walked outside, and he looked into her eyes, "Her name is Viktoria Van Buren. And her family is rather rich. Viktoria was born in a household full of boys, so they accepted her as the way she is." Amalia looked at her father, "She is one that lusts for women, and not men." Edvard whispered.
Viktoria walked out, "Now, Mister Antebellum, you wouldn't wish to spread unwise rumors, would you?" Viktoria asked, "Why of course not, milady." Edvard quivered to the voice of Viktoria, she was actually even richer than the Antebellum's. Then again she did come from a very royal blood line, "Hmm, interesting, Mister Antebellum, you speak with an ill tongue of things you do not know, do you not?" Viktoria asked, her beautiful Hungarian accent whispered into the air. Amalia was just stunned by Viktoria's beauty. She too had black hair, but dark, deep, blue hues. She was just like an angel. Her features were just amazing. Viktoria was in a beautiful, yet expensive black dress. She wore black gloves. And even her shoes were made of the finest materials were black as well. Viktoria looked towards the female, "And who is this, Mister Antebellum?" She asked, "My daughter, Amalia." Viktoria smiled briefly, "Mister Antebellum, please tell your daughter, that it is unwise to stare. And as for you, Mister Antebellum, I would suggest keeping your lips sealed before one may cut them away. Do not test me, Mister Antebellum." Viktoria demanded, "Good day to you both." Viktoria walked to her white carriage, much like the Antebellum's carriage, she too had a gold trim design upon her's.
-----------------------------Back Home with the Antebellum's------------------------
"What was her problem?!" Amalia yelled, "Whose problem?" Erzsebet asked confused, "We ran into Viktoria Van Buren." Edvard whispered, "Did you tell her?" Edvard shook his head, and turned to Amalia, "Viktoria is the daughter of the most wealthiest family here. Her parents own every piece of land. In fact, they own our's." Edvard whispered, "She is one woman, you do not mess with. Even if she is only seventeen." Amalia's eyes wide, "She is the same age as me?!" Amalia asked, Edvard nodded, "Yes, she is." Amalia was thrown off guard.
Edvard took the next few days hoping that they didn't piss off Viktoria. Edvard jumped when he heard a knock on the door. He rose from his seat and walked to the door, "Sir, is there a Amalia Antebellum here?" He asked, "Why?! What has she done?!" Edvard was worried, "Nothing sir. Viktoria only wishes for her and her family's presence at the mansion." The male stated, "When?" Edvard asked, "Tonight. You should pack, for you'll be staying a few days." Edvard nodded, "Let me tell them, and let us get ready." He whispered.
Edvard told Erzsebet and Amalia to get ready, and once they did. The male was still there, "You'll be riding with us, sorry, Viktoria's orders." He stated, and helped the females in. Edvard and Erzsebet were worried, and as for Amalia, she was very intrigued. This was a night to remember.
11th Jun 2012, 06:04 AM
As Edvard, Erzsebet, and Amalia approached the home. Their house was more like a castle, the place was huge. HUGE. Amalia's jaw dropped, as well as her father and mother's. "This is where we are staying?!" She asked, as she looked towards her parents, "I would assume so. I never seen a house quite this large before." Edvard whispered, as the carriage stopped they felt a weird jolt. "I guess..." Erzsebet was going to finish until they saw the man open the door, and extended his hand, "We are here, sire and ladies." The male whispered, Erzsebet took his hand, and got out. And who was there to welcome them? Count Lucian and Countess Aiyana. They were pretty much the royal family of the place. Most considered them the King and Queen of the territory. In which would make Viktoria the Princess. Soon, Edvard got out of the carriage, and then Amalia. Amalia was shocked at the house.
The mansion was made of what seemed like the finest granite. But the house wasn't. The house was white, with white and gold pillars. The house had white granite stairs. And gold upon the railings. Too the right of the house there was a beautiful horse stable. And to the left there was five other carriages. The Antebellum family were just star struck, and could speak nor could they move. Lucian coughed softly, until the family looked at him, "Welcome to our home." He stated with a soft smile, "Yes, welcome." Aiyana whispered, their Hungarian accents crisping the air. "Than..Thank you." Amalia stated, Aiyana smiled briefly. She clapped her hands a male servant came to her, and he bowed his head, "These are our honorable guests, please do make them feel at home. And give them the rooms for guests." The male bowed to the female, "Come with me, please." As Amalia walked up the stairs the Countess smiled, "If you wish to see our daughter, Viktoria she is out at the stables with her brother, Viktor." She smiled, Amalia nodded.
As they walked into the house, the foyer alone was as big as their house, "This house...IS HUGE!" Amalia exclaimed, and her voice echoed through the whole foyer. There was the grand stairs in front of them, and to the left there were three rooms. One being a music room, the next was the parlor. Then the dinning room. There was one large room to the right. The ballroom. "Please follow me." The butler stated, he walked up the stairs. Amalia watched the portraits go by. Every single on of them had different people, but she could tell the resemblance. This house was surely passed down generation after generation. He stopped before the room they called the "Crimson Room." The room was decorated in the finest things. Including sheets that seemed so expensive that would put the Antebellum's out on the streets, "This room is the largest, however, this room Viktoria made reserved for, Ms. Amalia Antebellum." Amalia walked in. She couldn't believe her eyes, "W..Wow." She whispered.
The butler took Edvard and Erzsebet to the next bedroom, in which was called the "Ice Room." Everything was decorated in a soft blue. "This is for the both of you, please enjoy. And if you need anything, do not hesitate to ask." He bowed his head and walked back to the Crimson Room, "Please, milady, follow me." The butler escorted her to the stables, were she saw a very handsome man, Viktor. He had very strong features. Black short locks, more like a little shaggy. And she could see the deep blue hues. She slowly walked over, but before she could step any closer, that soothing Angelic voice, like a whisper in the wind spoke, "Ah, well, Lady Amalia Antebellum, has finally arrived." Viktoria turned around, her hues were a soft honey suckle, which had Amalia wanting to walk towards her and kiss her. But she stayed there, "Dear brother, shall you and I go for a long ride, soon?" Viktor smiled, "Of course, my dear sister. I shall get Shadow and Angel ready."
Viktoria walked towards Amalia, "Forgive my behavior a few days before, I was a little, hmm how to put this in simple words, that a noble as yourself would understand. I was under difficult circumstances, or in other words, rather tired." Viktoria smirked as she watched Amalia glare at her, "Is that anyway to look at someone of whom is putting up with you for the next three days?! After all you are MY guest, not the family's. But of my own. It would be wise for the next three days, you shall speak of the highest praise, and your eyes to stay calm. When you return to your shack of home, you can speak ill of me all you wish. But as of now, if you do not wish to be upon the streets, you'll be a good little girl, and listen to me." Viktoria spat out, Amalia coward to the harsh words of Viktoria. Viktor galloped back to them on Angel. Shadow was Viktoria's horse, and her's alone. Anyone caught riding her house, immediately had their fingers cut off. Viktoria slowly mounted her horse, and of course road side saddle. After all she was a lady.
"I shall return, until I've returned be a wise lady, and keep your lips sealed." Amalia nodded, as Viktoria road off, Viktor stopped and looked towards her, "I would do as she says, she alas in the eldest of the siblings, and has the higher power above us all." Viktor smiled, "Wait, siblings?" She asked, Viktor smiled, "There is five of us. Four boys, and one girl. And Viktoria, we listen to her." Viktor smirked, as he road off. Amalia was shocked, she knew women during this time, had to bow to man, instead the family bowed to Viktoria. She was caught off guard. Viktor had finally caught up to Viktoria, of whom wasn't pleased.
"Oh, dear brother. She watched him dismount, and then so did she. She immediately rose her dress a little bit, to make sure the dress didn't curse the ground, "You have no right to talk to the peasant! Do I make myself clear?!" Viktoria hissed, "Yes, sister." Viktor looked away, "I am the eldest, and the only one that..." Viktoria paused, "Well, you know." Viktoria whispered, as she walked towards the bench in front of the lake, "Sister, you mustn't be so hard upon thyself. For that will give your wrinkles." Viktoria rolled her eyes, "I can never get those, and you know it." Viktor nodded, joking with Viktoria when she absolutely pissed off, was never a good idea.
----------------------------------That Night During Dinner------------------------
Lucian, Aiyana, Viktor, Kraven, Marcus, Lestat, and Viktoria sat with the Antebellum family. Viktoria's blue hues scanned the room, and she heard them speak. "Viktoria." She heard her father's voice, "Yes, father?" Viktoria replied, "Do you deny your dinner? You have yet to take a bite." Lucian stated, "Forgive me, father. The sun must have gotten to me. I was a little out of my mind." Viktoria looked at the food in disgust. But ate the food anyway. Lucian and Aiyana looked at each other in concern. Viktoria's brothers ate silently. Viktoria looked up saw their wives walk in, "Ah, yes. The Antebellum family let me introduce you too, Annabella she is Lucian's wife. Marcia, Lestat's wife. Eva, Marcus's wife. And last but not least, Natalia, Viktor's wife." Viktoria made everyone rise as their wives walked in. Once they had seated, everyone else sat. Viktoria gulped hard, "Forgive me, but I shall return." Viktoria quickly arose, and walked out in a rather fast pace.
Once outside, and near the elegant outhouse. She walked in and threw up her dinner. Viktoria gasped as she spat, "Disgusting." She whispered, her mother walked over to her, "I know, but we had to make you eat, for..." Viktoria stopped her, "I'm sorry, mother." Aiyana hugged her daughter, "Do not apologize what you can not control." Aiyana walked her back into the house, were her plate was removed, and a glass of wine was placed there instead. "Forgive my, rudeness." Everyone bowed their head, in saying apology accepted. Once dinner was over, everyone rose and went into the parlor. But Viktoria, Lucian, and Aiyana stayed. Viktoria asked for another glass of wine, "We shouldn't have our guests waiting, father." Lucian nodded.
When Lucian and Aiyana entered the parlor, everyone stay seated. However, when Viktoria walked in, everyone rose, "You may be seated." Viktoria walked towards the only chair that was not to be sat in, only by her. "How was everyone's dinner?" She asked, everyone began to speak, saying the dinner was delicious. Amalia was worried, "Are you alright, milady?" She asked, Viktoria looked towards her, "Quite well. When I ride, I usually get sick from eating. The sun, does bother me so." Amalia nodded towards Viktoria's words. Viktoria rolled her eyes. Everyone talked, joked and laughed. But people were noticing that Viktoria had five glasses of wine, and yet wasn't drunk.
----------------------------------Later That Night---------------------------------
When everyone was asleep, Viktoria was still awake. She sat in the parlor, with a book in one hand, and a wine glass in the other. She could hear the flickering of the flames, which provided enough light so she could see her book. Amalia had gotten up, to get a glass of water. She looked towards the parlor, that was lit. She slowly opened the doors and saw the Angelic woman, Viktoria immediately shut the book, "Who dares disturb me?" She asked in a hiss, "I'm sorry...I was..." Amalia couldn't get out her words, "Why it isn't, Amalia Antebellum. You've got a lot of nerve to even walk into a room that is not of your own." Viktoria arose from her seat, and walked towards Amalia. She grabbed her by the wrist, and dragged her into the room. Viktoria shut the doors quietly.
"I suppose, I should teach you a lesson." Viktoria whispered, she grabbed Amalia by both wrists now, and slammed them against the wall. Amalia struggled, Viktoria just grinned, as she leaned in, and kissed Amalia upon the lips. Amalia's eyes widen, and to only too struggle more. Viktoria didn't stop, her tongue slowly entered Amalia's mouth. Amalia by this time was returning the kiss. Her knees went on her. Viktoria of course didn't stop. She in deed continue. Once Viktoria was done, she picked up Amalia and took Amalia back to her guest room. Viktoria was shocked at how willing Amalia was.
As Viktoria headed back down the stairs, she was stopped by her mother and father. "Viktoria...How could you?!" Lucian asked, Aiyana grabbed her husband's arm, "Not here." She whispered. They all headed to the kitchen. Viktoria just grinned.
"Viktoria, you mustn't expose yourself! You know that you have...Royal Bloodline." Her mother put quotations around the "Royal Bloodline." Viktoria just smirked, "Oh of course mother. I remember! After all, you are the one who put this utter damned curse upon me!" Lucian snarled, "That is no way for a lady to speak!" Viktoria laughed, "Oh, father, if only I was a lady." Lucian sighed, "And after all, father. I am the only one with this "Royal Bloodline." You had to present this wonderful bloodline to the sons. Didn't you?" Viktoria asked, "What was the deal that you asked for, anyway? Oh yes, I remember, for a birth of a daughter. You, your wife, and your daughter shall be cursed! And if you so choose to curse those all around you, you can! Well, guess what you vile man, you've cursed everyone! Included your son's wives."
Viktoria was now more than pissed, "You should hold your tongue, father. Or I will have no other choice to cut your tongue out. Do I make myself clear?" Her father didn't speak, "Do I make myself clear?!" She asked again, and walked to her father, and gripped his ear, and began to pull. Slowly making his ear bleed from the skin ripping, "Yes, yes!" He exclaimed, Viktoria released. "This is what you get for cursing me! I'll never a normal life." Viktoria rolled her eyes. Aiyana lowered her eyes, "We wanted a daughter, and I was told I couldn't bare children. So, when I was granted a daughter. We made a deal. And then we were able to have sons. But they would never be cursed." Viktoria scoffed, "Never make me eat dinner again, is that understood?" Viktoria asked, "Yes." Aiyana whispered.
Aiyana sighed, "I am sorry, that you are stuck with this life. A life stuck as a....." Aiyana was cut off. Viktoria didn't even look at her mother, she knew exactly what she was going to say. Viktoria immediately walked out of the room. And down the hall to the parlor. Lucian looked towards Aiyana, then walked to her, and hugged her tightly.
--------------------------------The Next Morning-------------------------------
Viktoria had already taken off with her horse. Amalia finally awoke. She couldn't stop thinking about last night, she slowly let her fingers roll over her lips. She slowly walked down the stairs, the butler greeted her, "Breakfast is served, milady. Bon Appetite." He said with a smile, "Where is Viktoria?" Amalia asked, "Ah, Lady Viktoria out for a bit, I am sure she will return shortly." He stated, Amalia nodded, and walked to the dining room. Amalia was wondering if Viktoria was alright. And her parents seemed to have concern. In fact when they looked at Amalia, and whispered.
What was going on? And where was Viktoria? Amalia was reeling in questions, questions that would be answered soon. Maybe.
14th Jun 2012, 09:53 PM
Amalia had been walking the grounds hoping to see the woman that had taken away her most precious gift. Amalia hummed softly. As Amalia slowly looked up from the ground, she saw a woman riding a beautiful black steed. Surely enough the woman was Viktoria, Amalia's face lit up, Viktoria rolled her eyes as she rode up to her, "Can I help you?" Viktoria asked, without getting off her horse, "Forgive me, Vikt..." She was immediately cut off, "To you, you'll address me as Viktoria Van Buren or Lady Van Buren. Nothing of any other sort, do I make myself clear?" Viktoria spat, "My apologies, Lady Van Buren. I was quite worried about you." Viktoria glared to Amalia's words, "I am not weak unlike you. Feelings only get your tied up into a web that you'll shall never break free from. Do not worry your little head, Amalia. For I am well. And my well being doesn't concern you, anyway." Viktoria snarled. She rode off, and Viktor sighed as he rode up too Amalia who now was crying.
"What have I done to her?" She asked, "She has too much pride, after all..." He stopped, "After all what?" Amalia asked, "She holds the most power in our family. So, she can be prideful." He whispered, then rode off riding after Viktoria. Viktor knew of Viktoria's secret, more like dark side. She was the only pure blood of the family. Then again, Viktor's parents were different from Viktoria's. Viktor's parent were once, well, human. Until in a blood frenzy, Viktoria ended up changing them. Viktoria, is the Grand Vampire.
Viktoria slowly stopped by the lake, and dismounted from her horse, "Thank you." She whispered to Shadow, "Viktoria! Viktoria!" She turned to see her brother, "Yes, and what do you want?" She asked, with a soft hiss, "You do realize, Amalia is worried of you?" He asked, "And is it any of hers or anyone's concern to worry about me?! I can handle myself. I saved your ass, so many times, dear brother. It is time, you look at me, ten times stronger than you. And resume your position in the family, as a brother, not a bloody father. Do you understand?" She asked, Viktor didn't speak a word, "DO YOU UNDERSTAND?!" She demanded, Viktor nodded, "Yes, sister." Viktoria smiled and walked to her brother and rested her hands upon his cheeks. Her hands were so cold against his, somewhat warm skin, "You got luck, dear brother. Warm skin over cold. But that is what I get for having such a icy heart." She mustered. Viktoria sighed ever so softly.
"I do not get it, why not marry?" Viktor suggested, "Oh, let me see. I would pass down my horrid genes, not to mention, I can not bite the one I love. Was it not I, who gave you immortality?! Was it not I, who gave your wife immortality?! Was it not I, who gave our family a new happy life, not only in wealth but in health as well?!" Viktoria asked, then she sighed once again, "And yet, I, can not even change someone I love. To be stuck with a life with sorrow and misery. That is my parents asked of me." Viktor shook his head, "No..." Viktor was then cut off, "Do we have the same parents? Why of course not, dear brother. For you were not forsaken. However, I had given upon you, a forsaken life. You could never see. But yet, you begged for this. But you and your brothers, and parents. Had gotten off lucky, the ability to satisfy one's thirst with one simple glass of, wine. And you are able to eat food. And what must I eat? Nothing. What must I drink to satisfy just a small portion of my thirst? Eight glasses of wine. I thirst even now." Viktoria stated with her luscious Hungarian accent.
"Then shall we hunt tonight, dear sister?" Viktor asked, "Yes. I suppose we shall. I do want the brothers to come as well. We shall not go without them." Viktoria stated, as she mounted her house, and positioned herself side saddle, "Oh brother, one more thing. If I hear that you've been speaking to MY guest one more time. I suppose we will see what happens when a Vampire gets tortured to were their wounds do not heal right away, and they beg to the mercy of death. But that mercy shall never come. Do I make myself clear, brother?" Viktor nodded, "Good, then have a well spent day." She whispered as she rode off. Viktoria was not the woman people thought she was.
Viktoria was born in 1350, were the Bubonic Plague was happening. People were scared, and dying. Her true mother was named, Bianka and her father's name was, Akos. They were rich and a prominent family. With everything literally handed to them upon a silver platter. They were both of the Royal Bloodline, Vampires in other words. They didn't live their lives in hiding, however, the rather embrace who they truly were. No one ever messed with the Van Buren's because they knew if they did, consequences were great. And they didn't care of whom they hurt, maimed, or killed. A lot of people had tried hurting them, but could never succeed.
Nine months before Viktoria was born, Bianka woke up not feeling too well. She looked to Akos, "Akos, my darling. I do believe that we are of child." Akos's eyes went wide, "Is this even possible? We were told we wouldn't have a child." Bianka sighed, "Akos, I am with child. But I will say that this may be our only child. I wish to give this child everything that would only seem like in a dream, my love." Akos nodded, "Then we shall give our child everything." Akos smiled as he walked to his wife, and rubbed her cheek ever so softly, "What shall we name the child?" Bianka leaned into her husband's hand, "If we have a daughter, I wish to call her Viktoria." Bianka smiled, "And what of a boy?" Akos asked, "If of a boy, I wish to call him Marcell." Akos smiled, "Then those shall be their names." Akos hugged his wife.
During the months, Akos and Bianka would speak to their unborn child. They would even sing their child. They were loving parents even when the child was not yet born. But on October 31st, Bianka screamed in agony, as she giving into labor, "AKOS! AKOS! COME QUICK!" She screamed, Akos looked at his wife, and scared for the doctor that literally lived with them. He ran in, and walked over to Bianka, "Keep breathing." Bianka did just that, she was breathing hard. Akos held onto his wife's hand, "If you need too, squeeze my hand." And Bianka did multiple times. Bianka was close to passing out. She grunted loudly, and a scream echoed the room, then a soft cry. The doctor was holding the baby, "Congratulations, you have given birth to a little girl." Bianka cried, and she was handed the baby once she was cleaned, "Oh, darling look. Look at how beautiful she is." Akos leaned over and saw his daughter, "Viktoria, our precious Viktoria."
Years had passed, Viktoria was now seven, she was smart, knew fourteen different languages. Including sign language. She even knew how to play what most would call a piano. She even wrote her own pieces. She was very smart, and had a very wealthy childhood. She was granted anything, and everything she ever dreamed of, so yes, she was a spoiled little brat. But though she was spoiled she did have good morals. She would give money the people who were less fortunate than herself. Viktoria was sweet, when she was young.
By she was twenty-one. People were noticing something rather odd about the Van Buren's, they were not aging at all. They decided to run, and go into hiding. Years had passed, more or less a hundred and fifty-three years. Bianka knew that Viktoria couldn't stay in hiding forever. Bianka had found a poor family, "We will give you everything you desire, money, a house. Everything. But I ask of only one thing. Please, take care of my daughter. And you'll have the name, Van Buren. Please, this I ask of you." She looked towards the father, Lucian, "We will do this. Just please help us." Bianka nodded, as she handed them a key to her home, "Please take this." Bianka smiled towards her daughter, "My daughter, is only of the age of seventeen." Bianka lied, "She would be the eldest of my children." He stated, Bianka smiled, "For you see, Viktor will be seventeen. Kraven is of sixteen and his twin brother Marcus. And Lestat is thirteen." Lucian stated, Bianka looked towards her daughter, "Please, my child go with them." Viktoria's heart broke, "But what of you and father?" Viktoria asked.
Soon Viktoria saw three men surround her parents. Lucian held her back. "Ah, if it isn't the Van Buren's." Bianka scoffed, "We are not of the Van Buren's, that was a fake name we gave ourselves. They are the Van Buren's. We are the Chevaliers." She stated, "Well, what comes may, will be upon your lies." Bianka rolled her eyes. The man walked over too Bianka, she slowly took in a deep breath. Viktoria watched with wide eyes. The male grabbed Bianka by the throat, and twisted fast and broke her neck. He then decapitated Bianka. "Mother..." Viktoria whispered, as tears rolled down her cheeks. And they did the same with her father, right before her eyes. The men walked over to the family, "You best not tell anyone of this, or you will be next." Lucian nodded and looked to his new daughter, then to his wife Aiyana. "I am..." Viktoria cut Aiyana off, "Please do not say it." Viktoria slowly stood, and walked to her mother and father's body, "Mother, thank you for the best years of my life, and taking care of me. And thank you for nurturing me, and keeping me brave. I love you, mother. And always will." Viktoria slowly turned her head towards her father, "Father, thank you for also bringing the best years of my life. And taking care of me. And thank you for giving me a shoulder to cry on. I love you, father. And always will." Viktoria whispered, she crumbled to her knees, as she rested her face into her cupped hands, and began to cry hard.
Aiyana watched this and looked towards Lucian. "Poor girl." Lucian nodded, and let her be. Aiyana slowly walked towards her, and rested her hand upon her shoulder, "I am here for you." Viktoria nodded, and in a faint whisper Aiyana heard, "Thank you." Viktoria had an amazing childhood.
---------------------------------------Back to 1805------------------------
Viktoria was standing on the balcony and looked over her land. Tears were now hitting the railing. She couldn't believe that only two years ago she lost her parents. When Viktoria gave her new family a gift of immortal lives, she managed to erase that memory of her parents but what she didn't erase was the fact she was the sole owner of this land, and no one else. So, they did believe that she was born into their family. But she is four hundred and fifty-five years older than them. Viktoria didn't care. She was rich. And a royal bitch. Viktoria slowly took in a deep breath, and head down the stairs. She looked towards the maids, "Please get there belongings together. They leave in an hour." The maids nodded, and in unison they said, "Yes, Lady Van Buren." They all went there separate ways.
Edvard walked towards Viktoria, "Milady, why must we leave? Why can we not stay for a few more days? Please, my daughter loves being here. And it is not too often that we get to be in the grace of you, Madam Van Buren." Viktoria stared coldly towards the male, "If..." She cut off Edvard, "I suppose, that you may stay for the remainder of the week, however, Mister Antebellum, you must leave. And never return. For this home is of that of invites only. You're lucky that I even chose you and your family to come." Viktoria began to walk away, "Thank you, milady." He bowed, "That is all." She whispered, Edvard was about to say something else, "That is all." Viktoria repeated, and walked away completely.
Viktoria walked towards one of the maids, "Bring their belongings back to their rooms, if you would. For they shall be staying with us for an addition of four more days." The maid bowed her head, and walked away. Viktoria walked back outside, with a gentle sigh. She looked over at the stables and saw Amalia admiring the horses. But horse she didn't dare touch was Shadow, however, she looked towards the beautiful steed. Viktoria made her way to the stables, "He is gorgeous, is he not?" Amalia jumped to Viktoria's words, "Yes, quite." Viktoria smiled ever so softly. "You and your family are staying for an additional four more days, does this bother you?" She asked, Amalia shook her head slowly, "No Vi...I mean, Lady Van Buren." Viktoria looked towards Amalia.
"Amalia, thank you." Amalia tilted her head, "For what?" Viktoria smiled, "For not pulling back." Amalia blushed, "Do..Do you still think of that day?" She asked, Viktoria went to the doors, and slowly shut them, "Yes." Viktoria approached Amalia, and softly pressed her lips against Amalia's. Amalia slowly let her arms slinky around Viktoria's neck, she slowly lowered Amalia against the hay. Viktoria slowly deepened the kiss, Amalia's fingers were intertwined into Viktoria's hair. Viktoria felt her body heat up, as if that was even possible. Amalia felt her body heat up. Viktoria and Amalia soon were making love within the stables.
----------------------------------A Day Later------------------------------
Amalia was noticing she was starting to grow feelings for, Viktoria. Viktoria slowly rode out of the stables with: Viktor, Kraven, Marcus, and Lestat. Amalia happened to be there. She saw a gun in each other their hands. "Uhm, Lady Van Buren..." Viktoria glared, "My dearest child, please return inside, for we are about to go hunting." Viktoria stated, as they rode off.
Amalia was confused, what exactly were they going to go hunt at almost eight o'clock at night.
15th Jun 2012, 05:38 AM
Amalia paced in the parlor, she didn't get why people would go hunting so late at night. And in the dark. She sighed as she sat down, and remembered not sit in the chair of Lady Van Buren. "Child, are you alright?" A maid asked, "I'm fine, just worried I suppose." Amalia whispered. "Worried of whom?" The maid asked, "Lady Van Buren." The maid shut the doors behind her, "Please do not mind if I barge in, but do have feelings for Madam Van Buren?" The maid asked, Amalia blushed and nodded. The maid nodded, "That is rather cute." The maid hurriedly opened the doors and walked away. She was now worrying for the young woman's life.
"I hope I haven't upset, the Lady." Amalia whispered as she looked up, and saw a rather large portrait of Viktoria Van Buren. Amalia didn't take her eyes off of the painting. She couldn't she felt like her body was paralyzed. The pictured attracted her so. The longer she stared at the portrait, she could have sworn the portrait was moving. Amalia slowly rubbed her eyes, "I must be tired. But I must stay awake until Lady Van Buren returns.
Viktoria and her brothers were in the woods, "Remember why we're here, my dear brothers." Viktoria stated, "So you may feed, dear sister." Lestat spoke, "Ah, well, we have a brave one, don't we." Viktoria spat out. They usually looked for people who seemed to be camping out. Viktoria looked and a saw a fire. She slowly dismounted her horse, and walked slowly to the fire, and saw a man by himself. "Oh, why...Why." He kept repeating the question why. Viktoria smirked, and slowly dropped her gun. The brothers stopped, and waited.
Viktoria in a flash was behind him. She hurriedly grabbed him by the neck, and covered his mouth, sure enough, her abnormally sized incisors sank into his. And she began suck, letting the blood rush into her mouth and down her throat. She continued to feed upon this innocent man, until there was no more blood left. She slowly licked over the wound, and soon the bite marks were gone. Lestat was feeling bold tonight. "Sister, you mustn't do this. People will know." Viktoria's hues were a bright blood red.
"And who are you to speak to me with such a tongue?! Who are you to speak to me thinking you own me?!" She asked, "I was...I was just saying." Lestat was slowly backing away, "Just saying, I found that statement a little ill willing, my dear brother." Viktoria was now behind him, and she grabbed his ear, and began to pull. And soon as he opened his mouth she grabbed his tongue and began to pull. His scream was muffled due to his tongue was being pulled, "Next time, dear brother hold your ill speaking tongue." She let go. Lestat spat up blood, and felt blood running down his neck, "Forgive me, sister." Lestat whispered. Lestat knew better than to speak to his master that way, after all she did grant him immorality.
Once arriving back to the mansion. Viktoria dismounted her horse, and told her brothers to rest. And they did as they were told, "When she is full, Lestat, she will not be so angry." Lestat to Viktor's word, "I know." He whispered. Viktoria began to get the saddles off, when she heard a limb snap, she felt no threat. She knew deep down that person that was near, was Amalia. In fact she began to read her thoughts, "I must tell her. I must tell her, that I l..." Amalia sighed, "No, I can not, she may not have the same feelings as I, and I would look utterly stupid." Amalia sighed again, "But I must tell her! If I do not, then she will never know, and we leave soon. Just be brave." Viktoria smiled, and finally her incisors returned to the normal length, "Hello, Lady Van Buren." Viktoria smiled ever so softly, "Hello, Amalia." Viktoria stated.
"May I ask, why are you out here so late? Do you not grow tired?" Amalia asked, "No, I do not. For I do not sleep, and I can not sleep. I have nightmares, that prevent any thoughts of the simplicity of a dream." Viktoria whispered, "Lady Van Buren..." Amalia began, "I...I lo...Love these horses." Amalia whispered, Viktoria slowly turned around and walked to Amalia, "Is this what you've come to tell me? If so, then please do go back into the mansion, and rest." Viktoria whispered, her right had now was cupping Amalia's cheek, "I..I actually came to say...I..I love...The gorgeous moon." Viktoria laughed softly, "Yes, the moon is quite gorgeous. Please rest, Amalia. I have work that must be done, before morning light." As Viktoria turned to tend to the horses, Amalia turned her around, and their lips met once again. Amalia slowly pulled away, "What I came to tell you, is...." Before Amalia got the words out, Viktoria saw her mother,
"Hello, mother. Amalia go rest." Viktoria stated, "And that is not a request." Amalia nodded, and walked away. Once she in the house, Aiyana looked at Viktoria, "I do not understand, out of all the people, Amalia could ever find. She has her soft eyes upon you. My darling, daughter, did you and her mate?" Aiyana asked, "If we had, there would be no words that I would speak of to you, mother." Viktoria replied, "You know what'll happen if she falls to deep for you, or you fall to deep for her. You can't. You know this." Viktoria sighed, as she finally was face to face with her mother, "Answer me this, mother. Why have you punished me? You say I can not love someone, nor can anyone love me. And yet, to save your wretched mortal life, I have given you and your family, immortality. I have given your son's wives, immortality. But yet when I meet someone that could be someone I could see for all of this blasted Eternity, you speak that I should not! Fine, then so be it. I shall ask them to leave at once. But do know this mother, if you speak with an ill tongue. I'll surely cut your tongue out, and watch you bleed and suffer. Do you understand?" Aiyana sighed, "Yes, Viktoria."
Viktoria sighed softly and turned around, "Viktoria, if you do love her. Your secret will be exposed. And once this has been done, there will be no going back." Aiyana stated, "This I know, mother. Please go inside and rest." Viktoria demanded. Aiyana sighed, and left Viktoria to be alone. Viktoria sighed ever so softly, she knew her mother was right.
------------------------------------The Day The Antebellums Leave---------------------
Viktoria looked towards the family, as they began to pack, seeing they would be leaving soon. The maid went to find Viktoria, "Milady." The maid bowed, as she found her sitting before the fire in the parlor, "Yes?" She asked, "Do you not wish to say goodbye?" The maid asked, "If that was of your concern, I would tell you. But alas what I do, is of what I wish, and I do not wish to say goodbye to them. Please leave." Viktoria stated. "Yes, milady, as you wish." The maid left Viktoria to be. Viktoria rolled her eyes, as she took a sip of her special wine.
Amalia walked towards the parlor, and knocked softly, "Yes?" Viktoria asked, "I just wanted to say, goodbye. And thank you for letting us stay." Amalia stated, "Do come in, Amalia." Viktoria stood, and walked to Amalia. She immediately shut the door behind her, "You have time to tell me, what you wanted too the other night, and do make words fast, for your carriage shall be leaving in less of an hour." Amalia nodded, "I...I thi...Think I love you." Amalia whispered. Viktoria smiled, "Is this a feeling or a thinking feeling?" Viktoria asked, "Tis a feeling, Lady Van Buren. I do not lie." Amalia whispered, "Then this would only mean..." Viktoria stopped, "Was I your first, Amalia?" Viktoria asked, "Yes, Lady Van Buren." Viktoria smiled, as she was now very close to Amalia. "Then may I?"
Before Amalia could answer, she felt Viktoria's lips upon her own. Her body caved into Viktoria's arms. Amalia's arms moved loosely like a snake around Viktoria's neck. Viktoria's arms wrapped around Amalia's thin frame, and their tongues began to make love with each other. A single tear ran down Amalia's perfect features. As did Viktoria. Viktoria heard Amalia's parents calling out for her, "Please have a safe trip home, Amalia." Viktoria turned, and let Amalia leave, before she stepped out the door, "Do you feel the same about me, Lady Van Buren?" Amalia asked, and in a cold voice, Amalia heard, "No." Amalia nodded, and left.
----------------------------------------Back At The Antebellum's House---------------
"That was I must say, an interesting trip. But I did love it so." Erzsebet whispered, "Yes, as did I mother." Amalia walked to her room, her room was so small compared to the one she had stayed in. Amalia slowly walked into her room, and shut the door behind her. Amalia ran fingers over her lips, "How I long for her touch already..." Amalia whispered, as she rolled over, and pulled the covers over her small frame, "Only..." Amalia sighed, and slowly closed her eyes. . .
"Amalia..." A soft whisper spoke to her, "Viktoria?!" Amalia called out, she slowly looked into Viktoria's eyes, "You are so beautiful, Amalia. And I could stare upon you, for as long as these eyes could see." Amalia leaned up and kissed Viktoria hard. Viktoria immediately returned the kiss. They let their tongues meet is a slow dance with a melody of their own. Slowly Viktoria laid Amalia upon the bed, which Amalia was seeing what she believed was Viktoria's bed. She felt the soft bed form to her frame. Amalia pulled Viktoria more into her. Viktoria slowly pulled away and kissed Amalia's neck every so softly.
Amalia took in a desired breath. Viktoria slowly went downward, and soon moans were feeling the night air. "Plea...Please Viktoria...Do..Don't stop." A plead of pleasure rushed away from Amalia's mouth. Viktoria was still pleasing, but she softly kissed Amalia's lips then whispered, "I love you." Amalia smiled widely....
Amalia immediately jolted upward, "Why..Why does this have to be a dream?" Amalia asked, "Why could this not be true? Why does she not love me?" Amalia asked, as she lowered herself back down upon her bed. "I do hope she finds what she is looking for." Amalia whispered.
Viktoria just stood there, with not a single word running from her perfect lips. She just stared at her own portrait. Viktoria didn't know what to think, she had never let anyone get close to her. She had never let someone break her so easily. She didn't know what to think about how she felt. Or did she even feeling anything? Her heart was black as coal, and cold as ice. She was a very dark woman. And she would have to be, she was after all a very powerful being. People would love to be her. She was gorgeous, perfect features. And yet, she herself, believe she was gorgeous.
Viktoria was just full of pride, and didn't want anyone's help, nor did she ask for anyone's help, "Dear sister..." Viktoria took a deep breath, "Ah, Kraven, come." Viktoria sat down upon her chair, and Kraven sat in a chair across from her, "Why do you show signs of disappointment and sorrow?" Kraven asked, "Why do you ask questions that do not concern you?" She asked, "Forgive me, sister, I'm worried about you." Kraven whispered, "Don't be, I'm fine. Just have lots of thoughts coursing through my mind. Do not know were to begin and how to stop some these thoughts that do cloud my every single judgement upon this wretched life, I have, nor do I understand why you and your family were so willing."
"We were willing because you are family, dear sister. And we didn't want you to live alone." Viktoria sighed, "Tell me dear brother, how did you grow to be so old, so fast?" Viktoria asked, "Our father lied of our ages. You do know of this." Viktoria nodded, with a chuckle, "And how pathetic must one be, to lie of his son's ages. If you do not mind, dear brother, I wish to be alone." Kraven nodded, "Well..." Viktoria cut him off, "I will not wish to speak of what is on my mind, dear brother. Please leave." Viktoria mustered. She was once again alone. Viktoria let her eyes wander. Finally she spot something that was out of sorts.
She slowly approached the small item that sparkled, she slowly picked up the chain, and noticed the necklace belonged too Amalia. Viktoria then saw a note. And began to read Amalia's words:
If you are reading this, then the maids did as I had wished. I do know that you and I have only known each other for time I was there, however, dear Viktoria. I had felt a connection, that screamed as our hearts began to beat ever so loudly as we made love. Or how your eyes sparkled when I was around. I do know that you do not share these feelings with me, and wish to no longer speak with me, but alas know that I do love you.
As honesty as told me to speak to you of, my feelings. Please do not hate me for these words, or wish to have me killed. And please forgive me, for calling you Viktoria and not calling you, Lady Van Buren. So, I say these words alas one more time, I love you. I can only wish, that your life is filled with happiness and joy.
Immediately Viktoria fell to her knees, as her right hand clutched the necklace, her left hand clutched the letter. Tears began to roll down her porcelain colored skin. Viktoria slowly brought her knees to her chest, and the tears just didn't stop. And in a very faint whisper, "I love you, Amalia."
16th Jun 2012, 05:25 AM
Weeks had passed, and Viktoria hadn't wrote to Amalia. She didn't know what to say, and inf fact she rather be alone then let some feelings get in the way of who she was. Viktoria wanted to stay a cold ruthless woman, she didn't care who she hurt in the way of gaining the coldness that made her. Viktoria didn't know why she was this way, her brothers believed she was this way because she witnessed her parents death, and they knew this made her a cold being. But they dealt with her cruel ways, because she did after all give them all immortality.
"Viktoria." A soft echoed in the parlor, "Yes, Kraven?" She asked, "How are you doing? You've been in this rooms for weeks." Kraven stated, "And is this of your concern, dear brother?" Viktoria asked, as she continued to read her book, "Well, no, sister. But alas, I worry of your well being." Kraven whispered, Viktoria closed her book, making a loud noise, "Dearest Kraven, if this was any of your concern, I would have told you, however, my well being doesn't concern. Even if you are my brother. We've gone hunting, I no longer thirst at this moment, and as for Amalia. I shall forget her soon, as the ones before her." Viktoria spat out, "But she is different, and you know it! This is the first woman you've opened up too in such a very long time! And yet you wish to throw this away!" Kraven shouldn't have spoken to Viktoria this way,
"Kraven! How dare you speak to me with such a twisted tongue! You must hush your lips, or for I will have too. I do as I please. Amalia is just like the rest. A woman that shall never understand or know of our secret. I am much more powerful than you and your family combined! If you dare to speak to me this way again, I'll make sure the next place you end up is in a coffin for the rest of eternity. Do you understand me?" Viktoria asked, as she was now in Kraven's face, "Yes, dear sister. Forgive me. I just worry." Viktoria sighed, "I know." She whispered, as she walked back to her seat, and sat down. "Please. Leave me at once." Viktoria stated in a cold tone. Kraven immediately left the room. Maybe Kraven was right, maybe Amalia was different from the rest.
Viktoria was very well, and she was a little nicer, not by much. Viktoria was going through her belongings when she stumbled upon a letter:
"My dearest Viktoria,
There is something that we've never told you. You have a brother, Ambrus. Do you remember when you went to train to keep your thirst under control with your father, Akos? My dearest daughter, I had given birth to a boy. Please do not have ill thoughts towards your father and I. When you had returned, we decided that not to have two powerful children in one home. However, my darling daughter, you are much more powerful than your brother. And we haven't the slightest idea of why this is.
Viktoria, I do love you. You are my daughter. However, if you are reading this. Your father and I have departed this world, and started a new journey. We didn't want to leave you behind. But alas, my daughter, we only wanted to protect you and Armand. You two mean more to us than the life, we had given upon you two. You two had brought us happiness. When we had gone a long journeys, we were seeing your brother. So many times we wanted you two to meet, however, we both agreed with would be rather dangerous. Viktoria please do not hate us for keeping this away from you both.
Viktoria, please be strong through life. And continue holding your head up, and never letting yourself look down. For you are my strong daughter, and I do know that you and Armand will meet. Your roads will once cross, my darling daughter. Please remember, your father and I love you.
Viktoria kept her composure, she sighed ever so softly. She hated being lied too, but she knew her parents meant well. Viktoria chewed on her bottom lip, keeping the tears at bay, "Forgive me, mother, for I've failed you. For I've will never find someone to cherish. Nor love. I continue to keep those feelings away from my heart." Viktoria whispered. Viktoria slowly rose, and walked to her wardrobe. She took out the black dress, and the black veil. Once in her dark attire she walked out to the stables. No one talked to her, because they knew where she was going.
Viktoria mounted Shadow, and rode side saddle to the one place her parents had been resting. About two hours went by, when she arrived to their grave site. Viktoira then dismounted her horse, then walked into the dark building where her parents rested. Once inside, Viktoria took in a deep breath, and then placed a black rose upon her mother's grave, then a black rose upon her father's grave,
"Why did you have to leave this world? My flesh is like of porcelain, waiting to crack like a beautiful doll. My heart is cold as ice. And is black as coal. I do not wish to fall for someone. For pain only is too follow. I apologize mother, for not understanding, why you and father had to lie too me. Dangerous or not, I had wish to meet this brother of mine." Viktoria took a moment, as tear slowly rolled away from her cheeks against the red roses that she was holding, the tears dripped away from the roses, and made the roses look as if the pedals were crying, "I do not understand, why you two are gone. I would have protected you two. For you are my flesh and blood." Viktoria whispered ever so softly. Viktoria placed her index finger and middle finger to her lips, and pressed a kiss upon them, and pressed her fingers against her mother's grave, "I love you, Mother." She whispered, and then did the same to her father's grave, "I love you, Father." She whispered, she slowly knelt down, and rested the red roses against each grave.
Viktoria then turned upon her heel, and walked out of the building, with shutting the doors behind her, she walked away. Viktoria had one more rose, slowly she walked to the grave that held her first lover, Eva. A woman that had stolen her heart. But Viktoria refused to change her, and she passed away from old age. Eva did know of Viktoria's secret. She didn't ask to be changed, because she knew this made Viktoria upset. Tears captured Viktoria's cheeks, "Eva, my love. How I miss you so, how I miss your warmth and touch. I had never felt the happiness that you've brought upon me. I had loved you for so long, and yet, you've left this world, and me behind. If I had only changed you, as I know you wanted. Then you would be still with me." Viktoria collapsed to her knees, "I'm so very sorry, my love. Please forgive me. Alas, how do I move on from someone who held my heart to the highest of the plains? How do I move on from someone that knew of my secret and yet took that same secret to the grave?" Viktoria began to cry hard, "I..I love you, Eva." She whispered.
Viktoria's right hand gripped against her black dress. Her left hand gripped the red rose that was in her palm, "I'm so very sorry, my love. Please...Help me mend this heart of mine, and move on. For this is another, whom I've grown to like." Viktoria whispered. She slowly rose, and then rested the rose against her lover's grave. Viktoria leaned over, and rested a kiss upon her lover's grave, "This is not a goodbye, but a memory I must retain. A memory that shall never be forgotten. But my dearest Eva, I must move on." Viktoria whispered.
Viktoria then walked away, and walked towards her horse. Viktoria mounted Shadow, and road back home. Viktoria was still reeling about their death. She loved her parents more than she loved anyone. And she knew she had to move on from Eva.
Amalia sighed ever so softly, "Amalia, what has you so depressed?" Erzsebet asked, "Mother, have you ever loved someone ever so much, that just the thought alone killed you inside?" She asked, Erzsebet slowly shut the door, "Amalia do you love, Viktoria? If you do, I shall not hate you, for this is your life. If loving a woman, makes you happy, then I shall be happy for you." Her mother whispered, "I do, mother. Viktoria, I do love." Amalia slowly turned around, "But alas, I do not see how she could ever love me." Amalia whispered, "Amalia, if Viktoria doesn't love you, then you should move on, and find a lady that could and can love you. Do not wait for someone who doesn't know what to do." Amalia nodded, "I know, mother. But I shall wait, I do not care for how long I must wait, I love her ever so much." Amalia stated. Erzsebet nodded and left the room.
Edvard who had been worried for his daughter's mentality. "Well?" He asked, "She is in love with a woman." Erzsebet stated, Edvard didn't care, "Is she going to be okay? I do not care if I have grandchildren. Amalia's health has me more concern." He stated, "She is in love with a Van Buren." Edvard's eyes widen, "Viktoria?!" He asked, Erzsebet nodded, "But...But she." Erzsebet nodded, "I know. But she loves her. Maybe we should write her a letter, and see if Amalia could visit her again. For I do have a feeling deep down that Viktoria may love her. Did you not see how she looked at our daughter? Did you not see how she always wanted to be alone with Amalia?" Erzsebet asked, "Yes, I did see those things. Then we shall write Viktoria and her family a letter." Edvard whispered.
---------------------------------Later That Night---------------------------------
Viktoria looked towards her brothers, "I'll be back before the morning light. I'll be visiting, Amalia. Do not follow me. And that is not a request." Her brothers bowed their head, and they watched her literally bolt away. In about thirty minutes Viktoria arrived at Amalia's house. She took in a deep breath, and then began to read the thoughts of the Antebellum's until she heard Amalia's loud enough to make Viktoria know what room she was in. Viktoria tapped on her window. She saw that Amalia wasn't waking up. She threw a pebble at the window. She watched Amalia stare awake. Viktoria took a step back. Amalia slowly opened the window, "Vi..Lady Van Buren..." She whispered, "Yes, tis I. Are you going to let me in? For this not such warm weather."
Amalia didn't care how Viktoria got here, she moved away from the window. Viktoria slowly entered Amalia's window, "Why..." Amalia didn't get the rest of her sentence out, she suddenly felt Viktoria's lips against her own. Her body slowly warmed up. Amalia slowly wrapped her arms around Viktoria's neck, before letting her tongue slip in between Viktoria's lips. Viktoria slowly ran her fingers over the curves of Amalia's body. Amalia soon felt her mattress against her back, she then felt Viktoria's lips against her neck. "Viktoria." Amalia whispered, Viktoria stopped and looked at her, "Make love to me. Please." Amalia whispered.
Viktoria slowly removed Amalia's nightgown, Amalia felt the cold air embrace her body. She felt the warm and soft kisses being pressed against her body, as Viktoria slowly moved downward against Amalia's body. About three hours later, Amalia laid their breathless, "That..Was amazing." Amalia whispered, as she rested her head against Viktoria's shoulder, Amalia's hand rested on Viktoria's chest, right in between her breasts, "Viktoria, I do love you." Viktoria smiled ever so softly, "As I love you, Amalia." She whispered, "Please rest, my love." Viktoria whispered, Amalia smiled, and slowly rested her eyes, and soon she was fast asleep. Viktoria slowly slid out of the bed, and got dressed.
Viktoria tucked Amalia in, and pressed a soft kiss to Amalia's lips. And was gone. Viktoria was already back at her home before the sun rose. Amalia slowly awoke the next morning feeling around on the bed, and she didn't see Viktoria. She believed what happened, was a dream. But she then noticed she was completely naked. She was already missing Viktoria, but she knew that Viktoria needed space.
-------------------------------------At The Van Buren Household---------------------
Viktoria looked at her brothers, "I must find someone, that is closer than you'll ever be." Kraven looked at her with a tilt of the neck, "Who?" He asked, "My brother, Ambrus." Viktoria replied.
23rd Jun 2012, 06:55 AM
Viktoria had been preparing to leave. Her brother, Kraven agreed to go with her, "Is there anyone else that wishes to come with Kraven and I?" Viktoria asked in a low whispered, her brothers shook their head, "I am actually surprised Kraven wants to go." Viktor stated, "Ah, brother, I am going to help our sister. After all she gave this gift upon us. And I would like to meet her brother." Kraven smiled ever so softly. They had gotten all of the gear on their horses, "Shall we leave then, Kraven?" Viktoria asked. Kraven nodded, and they rode off.
"You think they'll be okay?" Lucian asked, "Of course, dear." Aiyana whispered, with a sickening feeling in her stomach. Viktoria was of course riding side saddle and her brother looked over at her. Hoping that this Ambrus was worth the trip. Viktoria rode through the night, while her brother was struggling, "Honestly, brother, must I wait for you?" Viktoria asked, as she slowly stopped her horse, "I do need to make a little stop, if that is alright with you, Kraven." Viktoria stated, "Did you want to see, Amalia?" Kraven asked, "More of a goodbye." Viktoria replied, "She'll be in danger, if the elders find that I've found love with a mortal. You do remember who they are, dear brother?" Viktoria asked, "Yes, how could I forget? You almost got in trouble." Kraven replied.
Viktoria pulled the reigns on her horse, and stopped, "This shall only take a moment." Viktoria whispered. As she walked to the window. Viktoria took in a deep breath, as she scratched at the window ever so softly, she watched as Amalia slowly awoke, "Viktoria...What has you here so late?" Amalia asked, "May I enter?" Viktoria asked, and Amalia obliged, Viktoria entered her room. "Amalia, I must take leave." Viktoria tried to capture the knot in her throat, "What do you mean?" Amalia asked, "I need to leave. I shall not be returning, my love." Viktoria whispered.
"Wait...You...You mean this is a goodbye?" Amalia asked, Viktoria only nodded, "But..But you said you loved me! You said that you wouldn't leave! You are nothing but a disgraceful..." Before Amalia could get the other words out, she felt a sting against her cheek, "Get out! Get out!" Amalia exclaimed. Viktoria did as she was told. Viktoria walked to her horse then immediately mounted and rode off. "That was fast, dear sister." Kraven stated, "I hit her, I needed too. So she would forget that I've ever existed." Viktoria said in a dull whispered, "You hit her?! Viktoria, sister, you love her." Kraven whispered, "I did...." Viktoria lied, as she felt the warmth of the liquid that was now building in her eyes, stinging the very core of her hues. Kraven noticed this, yet said nothing. Viktoria flipped her hair, trying to forget what she had done.
Amalia was laying her bed, as she gripped the sheets, and began to cry hard. "She...She took my virtue away. She took everything away including my heart." Amalia whispered into her pillow. Amalia's right hand went to her cheek that Viktoria had slapped rather hard, "Wh...Why can't..." Amalia was trying to forget Viktoria, but she knew that this alone wouldn't happen for a rather long time. Erzsebet softly knocked on Amalia's door, "Darling, is everything alright?" Erzsebet asked.
"No...Mother." Amalia replied, Erzsebet walked in, and sat the candle down, "Talk to me, my daughter." Amalia slowly sat up, "I fell in love with a woman. A woman that has a lot of power, and yet now, she is gone." Amalia whispered, "When you say powerful woman, you mean, Viktoria Van Buren." Erzsebet stated, and Amalia only nodded, "Have I defied you, mother? Have I disappointed you?" Amalia asked, "No, my darling daughter, for you have found love. Which is the most beautiful thing in the world. Do not fret, my love, if Viktoria loves you as you love her. She'll return for you." Erzsebet whispered, then she felt a strong embrace of her daughter, hugging her tightly.
Viktoria and Kraven rode for weeks. Until she caught on the scent of very powerful Vampire, "I think we've found him, dear brother." Viktoria whispered, "Oh, thank goodness." Kraven replied. Viktoria road into the dark town, "Excuse me." Viktoria watched the female bow to her, "Milady, we've been expecting you." The female stated, "This is oddly scary." Viktoria mustered, The female took the reigns of Viktoria's horse, and walked the horse towards the castle, "This place is so much smaller than our mansion back home, Kraven." Viktoria stated, and Kraven snickered and nodded. The female stopped, and Viktoria immediately dismounted her horse. Viktoria was escorted into the castle, "Sire, your sister has arrived."
Ambrus stood immediately, "Viktoria?!" He asked with excitement, he ran to his sister, and hugged her, "Alas, we meet." Ambrus stated, and Viktoria removed herself immediately from her brother's arms, "Forgive me, dear brother. I do not like to be touched." Viktoria hissed, "Ah, so you got, our father's genes. The darkness, and cold heart." Ambrus chuckled, "And I suppose you got, dear mother's stubbornness, and yet, her sweet heart." Viktoria whispered, "Ah, sister, that would be correct. Come. You must be thirsty. And look, you brought a pet." Ambrus smiled, "Yes, that I did." Viktoria replied and followed her brother.
"Dear sister, have you met a man, yet?" Ambrus asked, "I do not partake with men, dear brother." Viktoria replied, "Ah, then you and I have actually something in common." Ambrus turned around, and smiled towards his sister, "What may that be?" Viktoria asked, "I do not partake in women." Amrbus replied, "Then this is good. For we shall not pass this curse down to the abomination, we would have." Viktoria smirked, as she looked towards her brother, who now handed her a glass of wine. "Special wine?" Viktoria asked, "Is there any other kind?" Ambrus asked, "I do not suppose there is." Viktoria replied with a smirk.
"Ah, yes. Kraven this is my brother, Ambrus." Viktoria finally introduced the two, "Ah, yes. Nice to meet you, Kraven." Ambrus stated, "As it is nice to meet you as well, sir." Kraven replied, "He is very loyal to me." Viktoria stated, as they walked towards the parlor, "So, tell me dear sister, have you met someone?" Ambrus asked, "No." Viktoria stated, "And yet you lie, why must you lie to me, dear sister? What is this unholy disgrace that rolls from your lips?" Ambrus asked, "Yes. However, I ended things between her and I." Viktoria stated harshly, "Oh, yes, the elders. I am married to a mere mortal. Well, was a mortal." Ambrus smiled.
Immediately Viktoria stood, "Brother! Have you lost your mind?!" Viktoria asked in disgust, "Dear sister, calm down. He is very loyal to me as well. He cares for me, and treats me rather well. Viktoria, sister, you can not live in the darkness forever. Surely, our parents wouldn't want you to willow away, in memories and regrets. If you do love her, then take her life, and make her, your's forever. This is what I have done to Marcus." Ambrus stated, Viktoria sighed, "What is done, is done. I've ended things." Viktoria whispered, "And yet, your not happy, are you?" Ambrus asked, Viktoria sighed to his question. Kraven remained silent.
"Brother, tell me one thing. Can you die?" Viktoria asked, "No. However, you are still stronger than I. You have more capabilities than I." Ambrus smiled, "You never answered my question, dear sister." Ambrus smiled even more. Viktoria slowly stood, her long black tresses waved just a little bit. "What has your mind working is such a disgraceful way, brother? Why must you know every thought and word that could or couldn't fall from my mind or lips? However, no, I'm not happy." Viktoria mustered, "Ah, then this is the one. The one you wish to change, and stay with forever." Ambrus smiled, "What happens if she gets sick, while you are here with me?" Ambrus asked.
"I do not know." Viktoria replied, "My darling sister, do not fret, I am sure she'll be fine." Ambrus reassured her, "Ah yes, you must take rest. For you must be tired." Ambrus stated, "I do not sleep." Viktoria stated, "Wait. Do you eat? Food." Ambrus stated, "No." Viktoria replied, "How is this? I must eat and sleep. Then alas, you are the pure one." Ambrus stated. "Yes, of course." Viktoria whispered.
Amalia was feeling ill. "Mother..." Amalia whispered as she coughed hard. "Yes, my darling, daughter." Erzsebet asked with worry in her tone, "I..I fell utterly horrible." Amalia tried to laugh, Erzsebet nodded. As she took a cold cloth to her daughter's forehead. Erzsebet watched the doctor walked into the room. "I am sorry, Erzsebet." The doctor whispered, tears immediately ran down Amalia's mother face, "Mother, I'll stay strong. I promise." Amalia whispered, as she once again coughed hard, but this time coughed up blood.
Erzsebet was so deadly worried for her daughter. Edvard walked into the room, "Amalia. How are you feeling?" He asked, "Oh, father, I feel quite fine." She stated, with a warm smile. But deep down she knew she was dying. This was a sickness that had taken a lot of lives. She had the consumption. Erzsebet and Edvard left the room, "We must take heed, and tell Viktoria. She needs to know." Edvard nodded in agreement, "I just hope that she gets here in time." Edvard whispered. Edvard and Erzsebet looked back into their daughter's room, with tears running down both of their faces.
---------------------------------------Two Weeks Later--------------------------
"Dear sister! SISTER!" Kraven ran to her. "What is it, that has you bothering me?" Viktoria asked in a hiss, "Its Amalia. She is dying. She is very sick." Kraven whispered, Viktoria looked at him in disbelief, "What?" Viktoria asked, "Here." Kraven stated, and handed her the letter. Viktoria began to read the letter:
"Dear Viktoria Van Buren,
I hope that this letter finds you well. As this as yet to come too you. Our daughter, Amalia has the consumption. And the doctor has given upon her, the death note. Giving her another month, to live. The doctor doesn't see her living past a month. Please...Viktoria, please come to the aide of my daughter. For she loves you, ever so. Please.
Viktoria felt her heart break, "Ambrus, I must leave." Viktoria whispered, "Let me accompany you, as well as Marcus." Amrbus smiled, and Viktoria nodded. They all ran to their horses, "See, love, sister. Binds us all together." Ambrus stated, "She is dying!" Viktoria exclaimed, and immediately got her horse running fast, "Wait..." Ambrus looked over to Kraven, Ambrus saw that Kraven was really worried not only for Amalia but Viktoria. He knew if Amalia died, Viktoria would die with her.
"Please..Please Amalia, stay strong. I am on my way." Viktoria whispered, "I love you." Viktoria stated, as they all rushed back to the Antebellum Manor.
24th Jun 2012, 05:05 AM
Viktoria, Ambrus, Kraven, and Marcus rode hard to get back to save Amalia, "VIKTORIA! You can't keep riding that horse like that! You will kill him!" Kraven yelled, Viktoria grinned, and stopped her horse, and everyone stopped behind her, "Kraven, is it?" Ambrus asked, "Yes." Kraven replied, "Unlike myself, Viktoria has the ability change any living thing into a creature of the night." Ambrus stated, "Hence why the elders want Viktoria and I. They know of our abilities, and if we fall unto them. They will use our powers, and sometimes, not for good." Ambrus whispered, "Then prove it, dear sister." Kraven stated, Viktoria only smiled, and leaned down, and moved Shadow's mane out of the way, bit into the horses neck. The horse bucked back, but Viktoria held on.
"Only different from humans, they take much faster." Viktoria stated, and when Shadow opened his eyes, Kraven saw that the eyes were a bright blood red, "Ambrus, shall I bite your's? I need to get there quickly." Viktoria stated, "Yes, dear sister." Viktoria immediately dismounted the horse, and walked over to Ambrus, and bit his horse. "Kraven and Marcus, take rest, then come in the morning." Viktoria demanded, "I do..." Marcus was cut off by Ambrus, "I would do what she says. Because...Everything will fall into place soon." Ambrus and Viktoria now were riding fast towards the Antebellum Manor, "Please...Please Amalia hold on." Viktoria whispered, as the horses's hooves pounded against the ground, loud as thunder. "We will get there, dear sister!" Ambrus yelled.
Marcus and Kraven took heed, and rested, "What did Ambrus mean by that statement? Everything will fall into place soon." Kraven stated, Marcus sighed, "You still don't know, do you?" Marcus asked, "No. Obviously." Kraven replied, "Viktoria isn't like any Vampire. The Elders are even weak to her. She carries a very rare genetic of the Vampire blood. In which, she can't die at all. Must be hard for her. To watch everyone that she loves die around her." Marcus whispered, "What you do mean, she can't die?" Kraven asked, "Alright, you know how we must eat and sleep?" Marcus asked, Kraven nodded, "She doesn't. You know that a stake and garlic repels us?" Marcus asked, Kraven once again nodded, "She isn't. You know how if someone were to decapitate us, and we would die instantly? Seeing that stakes and garlic doesn't kill us." Marcus stated, "Yes." Kraven replied, "Viktoria's head could be lopped off, and she would stand there searching for her head. She can't die, not at all." Marcus whispered.
Kraven began to think, and realized something very fast, "Is that why the elders don't want her to fall in love?" Kraven asked, "No, they want her to fall in love with a male, so she can bare a child. You see, Viktoria was cursed. Ambrus doesn't even have the same capabilities as Viktoria has. Ambrus was lucky to be even a Grand Vampire. Viktoria is THE Grand Vampire, anyone that comes her way, dies." Marcus stated, "So, if the Elders get a hold of her?" Kraven asked, "She will kill for them. I have a bad feeling, if Amalia dies. So will Viktoria, on the inside of course. And she will be cold as ice, dark as night. And very very deadly." Marcus whispered, "If that happens...We are dead." Kraven whispered, as they now laid to sleep.
-------------------------------------At The Antebellum Manor------------------------
"Mother..." Amalia whispered with a faint whisper, "Why..Why must I feel so ill?" Amalia chuckled softly, Erzsebet smiled, or at least tried too. As she dampened the cloth and placed the cold cloth against her daughter's forehead. "Shush, darling, you need to take rest." Erzsebet mustered, "Is Viktoria coming, mother?" Amalia asked, as she ran her tongue over her now very chapped lips, "I..I do not know love." Erzsebet whispered. Erzsebet stood to get fresh cold water. Edvard walked in, "How are you holding, my darling daughter?" Edvard asked.
"Besides coughing up blood, and burning up. I'm fine, father." Amalia stated. As she looked towards her father, "Father, please forgive me." Amalia whispered, "For what?" Edvard asked, "For taking leave, before you and mother. And for falling in love with a woman." Amalia mustered, "Shush, shush. Do not speak of these things. And I do not hate you for the person you love. If anyone, I'm glad that you have fallen in love with a Van Buren, they will be able to keep you happy, and a float." Edvard smiled, "Father..." Amalia was about to say something, but she brought the cloth to her lips, and coughed hard. She pulled the cloth away, as she small droplets of blood against the cloth. "Father...If Viktoria asked for my hand..." Amalia was going to say something else, as she softly gasped trying to get air.
"I will say yes. For I know this woman loves you, as well." Edvard smiled ever so softly. Erzsebet walked in, and walked to her daughter, and began to press the damp cloth against her daughter's forehead, "Take rest, Amalia." Erzsebet whispered, "I mustn't mother, for I wish to wait for Viktoria." Amalia stated, Erzsebet looked towards Edvard, "That is fine, sweetheart." Erzsebet whispered, she began to pray, "Please...Please Viktoria hurry." Erzsebet whispered, as tears now began to form into her eyes.
Edvard heard a loud knock at the door. He ran to the door, and saw the woman that had claimed Amalia's heart. She was in a beautiful red and black dress. "May I come in?" Viktoria asked hastily, Edvard moved out of the way. Viktoria picked up her dress and ran through the house, until she came too Amalia's room, "Amalia..." Viktoria whispered, Amalia turned head and saw Viktoria, "Vi..Viktoria..." Amalia whispered, "Tis I." Viktoria walked towards her, "Please, my love hang on. I can't see my life without your existence." Viktoria whispered, as she was now sitting on the edge of Amalia's bed.
Amalia slowly sat up and hugged Viktoria, and Viktoria held back the tears. She knew if people saw her cry, things would become very awkward. "May I take her back to my place? I have upon my grounds a very well sought out doctor. Please." Viktoria stated and in a way demanded, "Of course. Viktoria, keep us in your thoughts." Erzsebet stated, Viktoria nodded, and picked up the weak Amalia. Edvard was shocked, at how strong Viktoria was. Viktoria hurriedly walked to her horse. She mounted as Amalia stayed in her arms, "She'll be fine, Mister and Misses Antebellum." Viktoria state and rode off with Ambrus. "Who was that gentleman?" Edvard asked.
------------------------------------A Race Of Passing Time-------------------------
Amalia was clung too Viktoria, "You...Came back." Amalia whispered as tears lingered in her eyes, "I couldn't bare my life without you, Amalia." Viktoria stated, "But..But you walked away so easily." Amalia whispered into her lover's ear, "You have not the slightest idea how much my heart broke." Viktoria whispered, as she made her horse sprint faster, "I love you." Amalia stated, "As I love you, Amalia." Viktoria replied. She saw her mansion in the horizon, Ambrus was literally star struck, "My my sister, you do have a rather large house." Viktoria only smiled to Ambrus's words.
Once there, Viktoria literally leaped off her horse, and ran Amalia inside. Viktoria ran her to the bedroom that Amalia was in, when she had visited. Viktoria now presented herself downstairs, "You all know what must be done." Viktoria stated with a hiss in her tone, "Viktoria, you do this, your secret will be exposed." Aiyana stated, "I do know this, mother. But I will not lose another!" Viktoria yelled, "Do not stop me this time, mother. Nor you father. I saved your lives, or have you forgotten?! I saved your pathetic son's lives and their wives as well, or have you forgotten?!" Viktoria asked angrily, "If you stop me this time, I suppose this home will get rather quiet." Viktoria hissed and turned on her heal fast.
Viktoria walked up the stairs, were she saw Amalia suffering. "Amalia, do you trust me?" Viktoria asked, "Y...Yes of course." Amalia whispered as she coughed hard, and her cloth was filled with more blood than usual, "Then let me, give you a gift." Viktoria whispered, as she was now sitting on the edge of the bed. "Come, let me hold you." Viktoria softly spoke, Amalia rose. Viktoria abnormally large incisors slowly began to increase in size, "Love me." Viktoria whispered, before sinking her incisors into the nape of Amalia's neck. Amalia gasped as she gripped onto Viktoria, her body immediately felt she was on fire. But Viktoria didn't stop, oh no.
Slowly Viktoria's venom entered Amalia's bloodstream. "I will not lose her." Viktoria thought, as she continued to suck against Amalia's neck, letting the blood flow. Viktoria even removed the illness that was killing Amalia. Ambrus ran into the room, "Stop, Viktoria!" He pulled her away, and Viktoria hissed, as she watched Amalia's lifeless body fell to the bed, "If you had kept going, you would have killed her." Ambrus whispered, "Her blood...Was very intoxicating." Viktoria whispered, "Alas we wait three days."
----------------------------------Three Days Later---------------------------------
Viktoria had been lying to the Antebellum family. Telling them that she was alright, and in truth. There were only two things that would happen. One Amalia would take form as a creature of the night. Or her body wouldn't be able to handle Viktoria's venom, and she would die. Viktoria paced as her heart began to beat even harder, "Sister, calm yourself. I'm sure she shall be fine." Ambrus whispered. Viktoria looked at her brother, "I promise this to you brother. If Amalia dies, I shall be joining the Elders." Viktoria stated, "Sister, you mustn't." Ambrus whispered. By twelve o'clock. Everyone waited in anticipation, hoping that Amalia would walk down the stairs. But by one o'clock. Everyone knew that Amalia didn't take.
Viktoria walked up the stairs alone, and saw Amalia still dead. Viktoria walked into the room, and grasped Amalia into her arms, "Amalia...Amalia..." Viktoria whispered, "Oh, please do not leave me in this world alone, please." Viktoria whispered, "I am so sorry I walked away. That was the most unbearable thing I had ever done in my years of life. Amalia...Please!" Viktoria began to cry over her dead lover, and as Kraven looked in, he saw blood running down Amalia's cheeks from Viktoria's tears, "She...She cries blood?" Kraven asked, Ambrus nodded. They all watched in, as Viktoria only held her. Her tears were caressing Amalia's lips, and even some of the tears slowly ran inside of Amalia's mouth. Letting Viktoria's blood slowly enter her body. "Bring the Antebellum's here." Viktoria stated, "I ...I love you so very much, my dearest Amalia." Viktoria whispered.
----------------------------------The Funeral of Amalia Antebellum--------------------
Everyone is black, as for Viktoria she was in one of the most beautiful dresses. She was in a full black dress, with a black veil that covered her face. Her right hand held onto a black rose bouquet. Viktoria tried to keep herself composed, but she had never felt this much pain since her parents had passed on. She could hear everyone crying. And she even could hear their pain that they were murmuring in their minds. Viktoria now felt the warm stinging sensation of her tears of blood running down her face. Soon the roses were dampened in blood. No one looked at her, thankfully.
Viktoria took in a deep breath, as she continued to listen to the Priest and his words. Viktoria knew what was next, she would join the circle of Elders. Viktoria then heard a knock against the coffin, alas, no one else heard the knock. Until she looked over too Ambrus, he slowly approached her, "What is wrong, sister?" He asked in a very faint whispered, "Use your mind." Viktoria replied within his mind, "Listen, closely." Viktoria stated, and Ambrus's eyes widen as he heard the knock against the coffin. "Listen...Please." Viktoria whispered in his mind, suddenly they heard thoughts, whispering, "Why must it so be dark, within here?" Viktoria's eyes were wide. She thought to the person within the coffin, "Do not knock, we will come get you, soon. I promise."
The knocking stopped. Did this mean that Amalia was still alive? Did this mean the tears of blood saved her? Did this mean, Amalia was now a creature of the night? And did this mean the Elders were to come after Viktoria and Ambrus?
25th Jun 2012, 04:21 AM
Viktoria looked to everyone that was around her. She tried to smile, but she didn't know how much longer Amalia could last within a coffin without feeding. Everyone hugged Erzsebet and Edvard. Viktoria walked over to them, "I do apologize, that there was nothing that I could do." Viktoria whispered, "But you did everything. To bring a smile to her face before her last moments. That is what is important." Edvard whispered, "She loved you, so very much. And she spoke highly of you, Lady Van Buren. And that is what matters. She'll be with us in spirit." Erzsebet leaned in and hugged Viktoria, of course Viktoria rolled her eyes, she didn't really like physical contact, except from one: Amalia.
Viktoria watched everyone leave. She looked towards the grave, that was now filled, "Sister, how will we ever make this grave look the same? If people notice that Amalia has been unearthed, they will go on a hunt to find who had done it." Ambrus whispered, "Then I do suppose we will have to make sure that the Earth's ground is the way it once was. But dear brother, I will not lose another, that had my heart." Viktoria stated, as she walked towards her carriage, "We must come back at night. Amalia knows that she will have to fight until then. Do not test my judgement, dear brother. Or I shall become brother less." Viktoria hissed, she watched the carriage door shut, and then a tug against the carriage and they were off back to her mansion.
----------------------------------------200 Years Ago-------------------------------
Viktoria was just one naive Vampire. She didn't believe in love, nor did she believe in a life that was bared towards men. Viktoria had been walking the lots of each house that she currently owned. She watched how the flickering of the candles, suddenly became smoke. She needed to make sure that everyone that lived among her land, were comfortable. But that is when she met Eva. Not the same Eva that is married to her brother, Marcus. Viktoria sighed ever so softly, for she knew that Eva and her, would never get together. For one was mortal and the other being immortal. And she knew that this would defy the orders of the Elders. But why would she care? They only wanted her because of her powers.
Over time, Viktoria grew more and more interested in Eva. Though Eva didn't want to admit that she too was becoming more into Viktoria. Eva had finally gain the courage to Viktoria, "M...Milady." Eva began, Viktoria turned around and looked upon this Angelic woman, "Yes?" Viktoria asked with her very seductive Hungarian accent, that claimed a lot of hearts. But to only be completely iced away from her own dark and cruel heart. "I..I had wondered, if you and I..Co..Could for a walk." Eva stuttered her words, "Of course." Viktoria smiled.
Eva and Viktoria became very fond of each other over the next three years. Viktoria had fallen in love with Eva, and Eva with Viktoria. They were inseparably. Eva's father didn't like how Eva talked about Viktoria. He knew they were in love, and he didn't want not nothing to with their disgusting love, "I do not wish to hear anymore of your filth!" Eva's father exclaimed, "You disgust me." Eva's father stated. Eva was crushed, and she immediately ran out of the house, and headed for Viktoria's home.
"Viktoria! Viktoria!" Eva yelled, "Please...PLEASE!" Eva pleaded, Viktoria slowly opened her window, and looked down, "Eva, what has brought you here?" She asked softly, "I need to see you, Viktoria, please." Eva pleaded once again. Viktoria hurriedly ran down the stairs and let Eva in, "My darling Eva, what is wrong?" Viktoria asked ever so softly, Eva leaned up, and kissed Viktoria hard, as she let her tongue enter Viktoria's mouth, Viktoria felt hot. Eva wanted to make love to Viktoria. They made their way up the stairs and into Viktoria's bedroom. Where soon the room filled with lust filled moans.
Breathlessly, they laid together, "My father doesn't understand me, Viktoria." Eva whispered as her hand laid against Viktoria's breast. Viktoria's finger softly combed through Eva's hair, "I do believe your father will come around." Viktoria whispered, "As for now, please rest, my love." Viktoria whispered ever so softly, "I love you, Viktoria." Eva whispered as her eyes began to get very heavy, "As I love you, Eva." Viktoria replied. She held Eva through the night, as she watched her lover sleep.
---------------------------------The Night Of Eva's Death----------------------------
Viktoria smiled ever so softly towards Eva. Viktoria decided to bring Eva and her father to her home. Eva didn't have a mother, she had died a few months after giving birth to Eva. "I am sorry, Lady Van Buren. But your love with my daughter is utterly sickening! And I wish to have nothing to do with you or her!" Eva's father stood, and walked out. "Father! Father!" Eva ran out. And Viktoria was soon following them. Eva looked towards her father, and Viktoria's hues were upon Eva's father.
"Father, this love, is not filled with sorrow from the heart! For I love her, why must this be so wrong?!" Eva asked angrily, "Because this isn't right. Both of you know this. I do not care of whom you fell in love with, if that person was a man! But this...This woman has you so obsessed, that this disgusts me! So utterly disgusted!" The male yelled, Viktoria saw in the corner of her eye, her parents running down the stairs, she signaled them to stop and of course they did.
"Father please." Eva approached her father, Eva's father watched his daughter, "Fine, if this is what you wish for. Then I have no other choice to let you go." Eva's father approached his daughter, with a sad smile caressing his lips. Eva gasped softly, as she gripped her father, she stumbled backwards and held the fresh wound her father inflicted. Viktoria smelt the blood, and she watched Eva fall to the ground, as she held the spot where her father had stabbed her. "I'll not let you leave this world alone." Eva's father stated, he took the edge of the blade, and ran the blade against his neck. Literally silting his own throat. Eva's father fell to the ground.
Viktoria dashed to Eva's side, she slowly pulled her dying lover into her arms, "Eva, please stay strong. The doctor is on his way." Viktoria felt tears emerging to the rim of her eyes, Eva tried to smile, but she gasped in pain, "My dearest, Viktoria. You have...Gi..Given me life...And...And ho...Pe. Not one...Mo..Ment was filled with sorrow. I..I lo..Ve you so very much. Pl...Please never forget that." Eva whispered, as her hand covered in her blood rested against Viktoria's cheek, "Don't. Do not say your goodbyes, please, Eva. PLEASE! STAY STRONG!" Viktoria screamed out, hoping that Eva would hold a little longer.
Slowly Viktoria leaned into Eva's hand, and soon her hand caressed Eva's hand, "Please...My love hold on. Please." Viktoria whispered, "H..Hav...ave you...You ever..Wond...ered what...is...on..the....the oth..er side?" Eva asked, Viktoria nodded slowly, "Vik..Viktoria my lov...e, please smile for me." Eva smiled ever so softly, even though she was in pain. Viktoria smiled softly, "I love you so much, Eva. Please do not leave me behind. Please stay strong..." Viktoria whispered. She watched Eva leaned up, "On..One last kiss." Eva whispered before pressing her lips against Viktoria's. Viktoria returned the kiss, and soon, Eva fell limp in Viktoria's arms.
"No...No...Please...Please Eva come back. Please." Viktoria's tears of blood now ran down her cheeks. "Please..." Viktoria cried even harder, and she held Eva ever so close to her. Bianka and Akos looked to the scene. Bianka looked towards her husband, "I hate seeing our daughter like this." She whispered, "As do I. Why must she be cursed so?" Akos asked, as they let Viktoria have her moment with her lover.
Viktoria slowly picked up Eva, "Mother, father." Viktoria called out. Bianka and Akos came to her, "Yes, my daughter?" Bianka asked, "I wish to have their family together, within our grounds. Next to the family crypt." Viktoria stated, they both nodded. They went to get Eva's mother from her resting place. Bianka carried Eva's mother. And Akos carried Eva's father. They walk to the site where they would be buried. Once they had buried Viktoria's lover, and her parents. They said final words. And now Eva's family laid to rest upon Viktoria's land.
Viktoria looked towards her brothers, "You must know what is to be done." All of her brothers nodded to their sister, "We shall help you." Viktoria only smiled towards her brother's words, "Then shall we leave?" Viktoria asked, Aiyana stopped her, "What is this madness?! You can no longer save her." Aiyana stated, and Ambrus shook his head, knowing that Viktoria's fake mother, shouldn't have said anything, "Oh, is that so mother?! Then why don't I cut off your head, and watch your head roll! And then I wouldn't have to worry about a woman who can not keep her damn ill mouth shut!" Viktoria was now right in front of Aiyana, "Shall we test my theory!? Or shall you mind your own damn business?!" Viktoria yelled into her mother's face, "I..I am sorry." Aiyana tried to step back, but since there was no where to go, Aiyana was trapped, "Oh, mother. You make me laugh so." Viktoria moved back, "That wasn't very lady like." Aiyana whispered. Viktoria snickered, "Too bad, I'm not a lady." Viktoria winked towards Aiyana.
Viktoria ran to her horse, as did her brothers. Viktoria looked towards them, and they were off to try and save Amalia. Viktoria wasn't going to lose her. Not now, not ever. The loud sound coming from the hooves, sounded like Thunder. About thirty minutes later, they had arrived. "Remember dear brothers, this ground mustn't be changed." Viktoria stated, and her brother's nodded. They all began to dig at Amalia's grave. Ambrus remembered how the grave looked, and one of his powers was to make things as they were. What a good power for this moment.
Viktoria hit the coffin first, "Hurry!" Viktoria stated loudly, they began to dig at the coffin's dirt with their hands. Until they saw the coffin. Viktoria slowly opened the coffin, she saw Amalia, resting peacefully. "Amalia...Amalia." Viktoria softly slapped her face, there was no response. Viktoria got her up and out of the grave. She rested Amalia in her arms, "Oh...Please, don't do this to me. PLEASE!" Viktoria screamed, the brothers had put the grave back to the way the grave was, when they first got there. Ambrus took the brothers away so Viktoria could be alone.
"Amalia...I can't live my life without you. Just please wake up! Please! I love you! I need you!" Viktoria began to cry over her lover. Viktoria was now shaking hard, as she only cried harder. Viktoria did what she thought would be best. She bit into her own wrist, and put her opened wrist over Amalia's lips, letting her blood enter Amalia's mouth, and now into her whole body. "Amalia...Please..I can't lose you again." Viktoria whispered softly. Soon Viktoria's wound healed, and there was no response from Amalia.
Viktoria held her dead lover, with her eyes closed. Letting the breeze wipe away her tears. Viktoria just held her lover, and soon enough, Amalia's eyes opened, and a soft gasp released from her now living lips.
26th Jun 2012, 05:50 AM
Viktoria took in a deep breath, as she shook her head, "Ano..Another one that I ever loved...Is gone." Viktoria mustered, "I...I..I am so thirsty." Amalia whispered, Viktoria immediately looked towards her lover, with a huge smile caressing her lips, "Oh...My..." Viktoria didn't need to whisper the next words, she immediately hugged her lover, "Viktoria..." Amalia whispered, as she literally clung to Viktoria. Their bodies pressed hard against each other, and tears were soon to follow as they didn't let go of each other. Ambrus and Viktoria's other brothers stood and watched, "Aw, what a happy moment." Ambrus whispered. Kraven was the only one to roll his eyes.
"Viktoria, I am really thirsty." Amalia whispered, Viktoria smiled, "For what, my love?" Viktoria asked, as she slowly moved a strand of hair out of Amalia's face, "Water, my darling." Amalia whispered. Viktoria smiled, then picked her up bridal style. "Let us leave." Viktoria stated to her brothers. They all nodded to her statement, or well demand. Viktoria mounted her horse, without dropping her lover, "Hang on." Viktoria whispered, and Amalia did as she was told. They rode towards her mansion. Viktoria was so very happy that her lover was still alive.
About thirty minutes later they were at Viktoria's mansion. She leaped from her horse, and was still holding Amalia, "How...How did you that?" Amalia asked, "All in due time, you'll know everything, my love." Viktoria stated. Once inside Viktoria slowly lowered Amalia down, and got her a glass of water, "Here, my love." Viktoria handed the glass to Amalia, she began to drink. But didn't think the water was good enough, "I still thirst." Amalia whispered. Viktoria sighed, and grabbed a knife, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" Amalia asked. Viktoria shook her head, "Watch." Viktoria stated, as she slit her wrist.
Immediately Amalia's hues went to a soft honey suckle, "I...I" Amalia stopped, Viktoria's wound healed, "Amalia...There is something in your hair." Viktoria whispered, Amalia immediately walked to the mirror, and saw nothing there, "Am..Am I dead?" Amalia asked, "No. Well." Viktoria stopped, she then again slit her wrist, "Feed." Viktoria stated, she felt Amalia's incisors sink into her flesh, and immediately a lustful moan released from Viktoria's lips. If there was thing that really turned Viktoria on, was being fed on. Viktoria licked over her lips, as her body quaked in pleasure. Soon Viktoria slowly pulled away from Amalia.
"Wh..What has happened to me?" Amalia asked, Viktoria walked her to the parlor. "You must understand I couldn't lose you. When I watched you die. My heart broke. You have no clue what you mean to me, Amalia. You see, I am not normal. Nor am I lady. You see I was born, to what people may call a curse. I call this "curse" a gift really. What you see around you, isn't normal. My brothers, are not my blood brothers. Nor are my parents. Amalia, do you believe in the myth of Vampires?" Viktoria asked, "Well. First back up, I died?" Amalia asked, Viktoria only nodded, "You died from the consumption." Viktoria replied, "And yes, I do believe in the myth." Amalia stated.
"Well, you see. There are a select few, that get this gift at birth. And I am one of them. I am a Pure Blood. Were as my "brothers" are just mortals that have been changed. The only family member that is actually my blood, is my brother, Ambrus. Both him and I were born Vampires. We were never Mortals. We have seen death last around us." Viktoria stated, and immediately Amalia laughed, "Yes, this is correct." Amalia stated, "You do not believe me?" Viktoria asked, "How can I? I am here, am I not? Vampires are dead beings." Amalia stated, in one motion, Viktoria was right in front of Amalia, "You think this is game, do you not?!" Viktoria asked angrily. "N..No. I just don't believe you." Amalia whispered.
"Hmm, how cute." Viktoria stated, as her hues became a very piercing blue, and her incisors grew to an abnormal length, "Do you believe me now, darling?" Viktoria asked, and Amalia's eyes were wide, "Yes...Yes." Amalia whispered, "I had to change you, to keep you in my life. And you were the first woman I had ever done that with." Viktoria stated, "I am, however, so glad that you believe what I had said, was nothing but a pathetic game to you. Please leave me." Viktoria stated, "My love..." Amalia began, "LEAVE!" Viktoria yelled.
----------------------------------Later That Night--------------------------------
Everyone was asleep, even Amalia. Ambrus and Viktoria were the only ones awake, "You do realize what is to come of this?" Ambrus asked, "Why of course, the Elders shall be knocking at my door. Wishing to seal my fate, as one of them." Viktoria stated, with an eerie smile, "How can you smile to this?" Ambrus asked, "They will want you for your powers, nothing more." Ambrus stated, "Ah, yes. But the Elders can die, as for me, I can not. How ironic. I even more powerful than Elders. This honestly, has me laughing within." Viktoria stated with a cold stare, "Sister." Ambrus began, "I do know what you are about to say, Ambrus. They will not harm, my Amalia." Viktoria stated.
"You realize everyone you or I have bitten now belong to us. No one can take them from us. They are forever connected to us, whether they like the idea or not. For instance, you not only fell in love with a man named Marcus. Which oddly, I have a brother named Marcus. I do hope that they know of whom we speak of. Back to what I was saying. Not only is he your lover, but a slave to your darkness. Funny how a lover can also be a slave." Viktoria grinned, "We might as well put something around their necks, claiming them as our's." Ambrus added. They both laughed softly.
"Sister." Ambrus whispered, "Yes, dear brother?" Viktoria asked, "Why did you change, Amalia? This of course being out of curiosity." Ambrus stated, "I had fallen in love with her. However, there was a lover before, that I had a chance to change. However, our parents intervened. And the task could not be done, and her father simply killed her right before me. She is, therefore, in a better place." Viktoria stated, "Did you have a lover before, Marcus, dear brother?" Viktoria asked, "Yes, I did. His name was Andor. But I never had a chance to change him, either. He ended up getting really sick. And I did bite him. Sadly, dear sister, he wasn't strong like Amalia. He didn't come back." Ambrus whispered.
"Can you believe that both of us are not attracted to the opposite gender?" Ambrus asked, "I find women very attractive. Their curves, their lips, the softness of their skin." Viktoria stated, as she now poured another glass of her special wine. "If there is one thing, I do hate. Is that anyone we bite, doesn't need to feed, as much as we do. And even if we had that ability, we would be much weaker." Viktoria stated, before taking a sip of her wine, "Alas, you are right, dear sister." Ambrus stated.
"THAT WENCH!" Gergo yelled, "What is it?" Geza asked, "Viktoria has defied orders. She not only fell in love with a female mortal. She bit her! Viktoria needs to join the Elders, or I shall kill her myself!" Gergo said angrily, "Is that anyway to treat a lady?" A voice in the shadows asked, both Gergo and Geza bowed, Kamilla presented herself, "After all...Oh, we all know the stories. Viktoria can not die, you fools. And even if she could, she wouldn't give up without a fight." Kamilla smirked, "Then shall we kill her lover?" Geza asked, "Of course not. If we did that, then I too would have to kill your wives. And we wouldn't want that, would we?" Kamilla asked, "Gergo, you dear sweet Kata, wouldn't want to die a painful death, would she? After all you two have a son together, do you not?" Kamilla asked, "Well..." Gergo was about to say "yes". But Kamilla stopped him.
"In due time, we will take front and seek Viktoria." Kamilla stated, as she heard another female's voice, "Yes, master, I do believe that time is part of being there at the right moment." Sziilvia stated, "What of, Ambrus, Viktoria's brother?" Geza asked, "Oh, what of him? We need him as well. Both of very strong, and can not die. We will need them for the war that is to be had." Kamilla stated, "Are you going to tell Viktoria the truth?" Gergo asked, "What truth?" Kamilla asked looking towards Gergo, "You know what of I speak of." Gergo replied.
"All in due time, brother. All in due time. This must be sad, however, Viktoria is the strongest of them all. She could kill us all, and we wouldn't even know that we were dead...Until, well, it was too late." Kamilla stated. "In which, where is the fifth?" Kamilla asked, "He is dead." Geza stated, "Always knew Levente would die. He was pathetic and weak." Kamilla stated, "Milady, how shall we go about getting Viktoria and Ambrus?" Szilvia asked, "In due time, sister. All in due time." Kamilla replied with a sinister smile.
Kamilla left as she walked into her bedroom. She looked towards a portrait of her and someone else, "Sadly, this has to be done. I had not wish that things would come to this." Kamilla whispered, as she sat down before her mirror, and only saw the hairbrush moving up and down, as she brushed her hair.
--------------------------------------Back To The Van Buren Household-----------------
"Are you afraid, sister?" Ambrus asked, as he could see that she had some terror in her eyes, "What if the Elders, wish for us to kill the ones we love? Have we not defied their orders? They clearly spoke that you and I were not supposed to fall in love with mortal, more or less, change them. I do not understand why there is Elders. Till this day, they have yet to fulfill, one what they have promised. Nor did they care that I bit my "brothers" but when I fall in love, and bite my lover. All of a sudden they wish to kill not only me, but you as well." Viktoria stated, and then looked towards the fire.
"Sister, we shall not fear what they have to do, what they wish to do unto us. For if we do, then they will get the better of us." Ambrus stated, "I just feel as if there is more to what is going on. I feel a chill against my bones. And as I would like a nice chill. This chill is not so great. For there is something wrong, dear brother." Viktoria stated, "What do you feel, sister?" Ambrus asked, with fear beginning to take over his eyes, "I do not know, brother. But whatever I feel, this can not be good." Viktoria whispered, as she drank her wine again.
Silence was now between Viktoria and Ambrus. They were now both terrified. And they both knew that is exactly how the Elders like to run things. Putting fear into hearts of their Coven. They wanted the members of their Coven to fear them, however, they too had a fear. Viktoria.
27th Jun 2012, 07:45 AM
Kamilla was getting antsy, "I do believe that we should be leaving, my children. For there is no time to spare any longer. Besides I do need Viktoria and Ambrus. And if I do get them, this will be as if a wish had been granted. I do not understand why this must be so hard for you. For you think that they will willingly join the Elders." Kamilla scoffed as the circle listened to her, "Then, dear sister, how will we get them to join us?" Gergo asked, "By any means possible. However, if if their lovers are harmed, then I suppose that we will only need three members." Kamilla hissed. Grego, Geza, and Szilvia stood and walked towards their horses, and got ready to leave.
"I do hope that you know that we are on the way, dearest Viktoria. And I do hope that you are ready to convert to the place where you should be. Where you should be sitting. Next to me, in front of the Elders. We both that they are weak, and this is why I need you." Kamilla whispered, as she turned and head towards her horse, she then mounted her horse, in which she named Vixen. And soon they were riding off towards the Van Buren household.
Viktoria took in a deep breath, "They are coming." Viktoria murmured, "Have you told Marcus of the Elders?" Viktoria asked, Ambrus sighed, "Not yet, I am too terrified to do so." Ambrus stated, as he now released a soft sigh, "What are we to do, dear sister?" Ambrus asked, Viktoria looked towards her brother, "Honestly? This is one subject that I do not have all the answers too. Alas, do I wish I did? Why of course, dear brother. But sadly, I do not." Viktoria looked away, Ambrus looked towards Viktoria, as he watched a single red tear roll down Viktoria's perfect features. He didn't want to say anything, nor did he think of anything. He didn't know what to say.
Viktoria began to sniffle, all she kept seeing her head, was watching Amalia die. And this alone was breaking her heart, but she knew deep down inside that she needed to tell Amalia who the Elders were, and why they needed her lover. Viktoria took in a deep breath, "Brother, tell Marcus, please. As I promise you that I will tell Amalia." Viktoria slowly stood, "As for now, dear brother, join Marcus in bed. As I shall join Amalia." Viktoria stated. She slowly rose her dress, and walked out of the parlor and up the stairs.
She slowly stepped into her room, the one she was now sharing with Amalia. She watched her lover for a few moments. She listened to the soft breaths. Viktoria slowly removed her dress. Amalia heard the fabric slowly fall to the ground, she rolled over. She saw her lover's perfect body soaking up the moonlight. The light from the moon, caressed her perfect curves, "You rest naked?" Amalia asked, with a soft yawn, "Yes, of course. However, I do not rest, I lay." Viktoria replied, as she walked towards her bed. Amalia immediately scooted over, "Why do you not rest?" Amalia asked, as she snuggled up against Viktoria.
"I can't. Even if I had decided to try. I would end up waking within a second. For I do not dream, nor do I have nightmares. Therefore, I do not sleep. For I can't." Viktoria whispered, her fingers slowly combed through Amalia's hair, as she felt Amalia's arm wrap around Viktoria's waist. Viktoria smiled, as she now heard the soft purrs of Amalia sleeping once again. Viktoria sighed ever so softly, she was now thinking of how to tell Amalia of the Elders, and telling Amalia what place Viktoria would have to take, if she did decide to become an Elder.
------------------------------------------The Next Morning-------------------------
Amalia slowly woke up, she felt the sun caressing her body, she looked around and saw Viktoria still was holding her, "Good morning, my love." Amalia whispered, "As too you, darling, good morning." Viktoria stated, "My love, please get ready, I need to talk too upon something that is very important." Viktoria slowly got up, and slid out of the bed. She went to the wardrobe, and grabbed a new dress, and left the room. Amalia was now getting a little nervous. She was hoping that this wasn't a bad talk. Amalia was soon ready, and walked down the stairs, "Wh..." Before Amalia could finish, the maid pointed to the Parlor. Amalia went to the parlor.
Once Amalia was in the parlor, Viktoria shut the doors behind her. Amalia saw Marcus and Ambrus, "Dear sister, you may begin." Ambrus stated. Amalia sat down, and began to listen, "I've asked you to join me here, Amalia because there is something very important that I, we, need to tell you and Marcus. There is a group called the Elders. They are the leaders of our coven. What the say, goes. And they wish to have Ambrus and I added to the Circle. And you may ask, how is this a bad thing? The Elders sometimes take the powers of certain Vampires, and use them for what is not always good. They want to rule the world, even if families and lovers are killed in the process." Viktoria stated.
"Why do they wish for you and Ambrus?" Marcus asked, "Because we are the only Pure Bloods left. And if there were anymore, they would want them too. However, there isn't, Ambrus and I are the only ones left that can change Morals to into Immortals. They want us for our powers. And of course our strong souls. You see, every Vampire has their own Genetics. We can have different powers, or we can have none. Just being Immortal. However, Ambrus and I, are the strongest that they have seen in years. Because we can not die. No matter what happens to us, we can not die. We do not eat, sleep, or even drink anything other than blood. Blood is our source for everything. But him and I could be completely drained dried. We wouldn't die." Viktoria stated.
"So, then they want to kill us?" Amalia asked, Viktoria turned and knelt before her lover. Viktoria's hands were now resting on Amalia's kness, "My love, the Coven can not kill someone's lover. In order to do that, they would have to kill every lover that was in the Elder's Circle. So, they can not kill you, however, then can harm you enough to were Ambrus and I will make a decision of joining them." Viktoria whispered, "They why don't you two want join them?" Marcus asked, "Because if we do, we will end up becoming like them. Heartless, and dead to the world." Ambrus replied.
Amalia turned Viktoria's face towards her own, "I'll stand behind you, no matter what you decide. For this flesh may be cold, but you warm my flesh so. You have given me a second chance at life, even if the heart behind my chest has once died. My love has not." Amalia whispered, Viktoria leaned up and softly kissed Amalia's soft lips. And their foreheads rested against each other.
--------------------------------------The Arrival Of The Elders------------------------
"Milady! Milady!" A maid came running into the Parlor, "They are here." The maid bowed her head, "Forgive..." She was silenced, "You are fine." Viktoria stated, Viktoria and Ambrus walked outside, and saw the four, "Where is the other two?" Viktoria asked, "They..Well, have perished, my darling Viktoria." Kamilla stated, "Wh...Who..." Amalia began, "Who are we?" Kamilla asked, "Why we are the Elders of the Coven you are now partake of, sweet child. I am Kamilla. This here." She pointed to Szilvia, "Is Szilvia." Kamilla smiled, and was about to introduce the other two, but Viktoria said their names first, "And that is Gergo and Geza." Viktoria stated, "Why yes, that is correct." Kamilla replied.
"Sweet child, we are the ones that make sure that newborns are protected, as well the ones that have lived longer than most. Is that correct, Viktoria?" Kamilla asked staring down the female, she wanted so very badly to join the Circle of Elders. "Viktoria. Ambrus. Please join us, we could use you, oh so very badly." Kamilla stated, "You have your pets, Kamilla. You do not need us." Viktoria hissed, "But we do. Viktoria there is a war to be had, and these creatures we can not beat on our own." Kamilla stated, "Yes, Viktoria she is correct. A war that we, alone can not win." Szilvia stated. Viktoria rolled her eyes, as she began to turn.
"Viktoria. Please. We need you, why must you always be stubborn and not help your kind?!" Kamilla asked in an angered tone. Viktoria was now pissed, "WHY?! You and your Circle are pathetic. You have lost how many now?! Six?! You say you are Elders, but you are as weak as a newborn. Whom can not tell what to do with themselves. All you do is put pressure upon the other members of the coven, and make us suffer. And yet you are the reason we are suffering. Alas, you do not see that. You only see what you want to see, even if, you know its not true. Why must you stalk my brother and I? Why must you tell or even ask us to join some pathetic representation of our Coven?!" Viktoria asked angrily.
"Because we are here to protect of whom we love! You do not wish to understand what we do. You do not wish to understand or even grasp the very idea of your destructive nature. For that is what you are, Viktoria. You are a monster. So is your brother, Ambrus. So are we. And so is your new lover. You even had the motive to change, your lover into an Immortal. To be consumed of one thought, blood. And for some, death as well." Kamilla stated, "Why must you and Ambrus lose the sight of what must be done?!" Kamilla asked angrily, "You must see where we are coming from, Viktoria, please." Kamilla pleaded.
"Come, Amalia." Viktoria stated as she now turned around, and was about to go inside, "Viktoria do you ever wonder what happened to your parents, Bianka and Akos?" Kamilla asked, "Always." Viktoria mustered, "They were given a new life. One without pain. One without wondering when they were going to get their next meal of blood. They wanted to die, and get you out of harms way from Vampire Hunters. In which your lover's family for many years, are." Kamilla stated, "Wait...My family are Vampire Hunters?" Amalia asked, "Yes, sweet child. They have been for many years, now. And they will not stop hunting our kind." Kamilla stated.
Viktoria grabbed Amalia's hand went to go further inside, "Do not listen to Kamilla's lies." Viktoria hissed, "Then why don't you ask who you truly are, Viktoria? Or even who your true parents are." Kamilla stated, "My parents are dead because of you! And your stupid circle!" Viktoria spat out as she was now a few feet away from Kamilla. Gergo, Geza and Szilvia went to go defend Kamilla, and Kamilla waved them down, telling them to stop, "No, Viktoria. That is not true." Kamilla simply stated, "Yes it is! I saw this happen with my very own eyes." Viktoria stated, "No, Viktoria. They were never your parents. Just a con family, to keep you raised in a true family orientated home." Kamilla stated.
"I'll bite, Kamilla. If Bianka and Akos were not our parents." Viktoria was cut off, "Oh, no. Bianka and Akos were in deed Ambrus's parents. But not your's." Kamilla replied, "Then if they were not mine. Who was?" Viktoria asked, and in two words, Kamilla replied, "I am." And Viktoria only gasped.
19th Jul 2012, 05:13 PM
Everyone just stood there, and no words rolled down from their lips, "You are saying, that you are my mother, and not Bianka?" Viktoria asked softly, "Ah, yes. That is exactly what I am saying, my darling daughter. But you do know what this will mean for you and the Coven?" Kamilla asked, "I shall take a stab at this question. They'll be after myself and my lover Amalia." Viktoria stated with a hiss, "No. Just you. And if Amalia gets in the way, they will kill her. My precious daughter, I tried to warn you. Year after year, that you shouldn't get involved with a mortal. And you did. Alas, you will not have any protection from us. I am sorry." Viktoria snickered to her mother's reply, "That's fine, I am pretty damn sure, I can handle myself, mother." Viktoria grinned, "You shall speak of as a lady! In front of a lady!" Kamilla was now right in front of Viktoria, and Viktoria laughed, "Oh, if were of ladies, mother. You know as well as I do, we are not living. So, that makes us not ladies." Viktoria rolled her eyes, "Viktoria, my daughter, do you know how old you truly are?" Kamilla asked, "Why of course not mother, because I was presumed to be alas four hundred and fifty-five, shall you tell me otherwise? Viktoria asked in a cold harsh tone,
"Yes, I shall. Try making yourself older by three hundred years. You must had remember the darkest hours of your life, when you watched your parents die. I had to shield you, for I didn't want you to be part of the Elders of the Coven. I had to protect you." Kamilla stated, "PROTECT ME!? By all of your lies?! Great parenting, mother. Terrific and an outstanding production on your part." Viktoria stated, and began to walk away, "Do you know what is out there awaiting for you?!" Kamilla asked, as she grabbed Viktoria's arm, "If anything, somewhere you will not be, dearest mother." Viktoria tugged her arm away.
Levente stood there, "I want her. I need her." He spoke softly, "Who do you seek, my love?" Borbala asked, "Viktoria Van Buren. She will do the elders quite well. And that woman, Kamilla has stuck her nose into our affairs for too long. She will die, by her own daughter's hands. I'll make sure of this." Levente stated, "And if she doesn't?" Etel asked, "Then we will have to make her. Oh, she shall be ours." Levente stated, "Be careful brother, if you attack her family. She will kill you, and you know of this to be true. And if she does indeed kill her mother, then wash away the stains from your hands, because your head will sure roll." Lazar stated, "Yes, and is this of a bad thing, brother?" Levente looked towards Lazar, "Then I presume no. For she will be mother of the Coven, and we will be dead." Lazar only smiled, "But alas this is what our brother wants from us. To try and kill everything around Viktoria." Lazar stated, "And her." Levente smirked, "She can not die, you bloody moron! And if you even try...Well, I presume, it wouldn't be at all a loss." Lazar laughed.
They heard creaking coming from the stairs, and everyone bowed to their knees. As a gorgeous woman came down the stairs, a very powerful Vampire, herself. This would be an amazing fight if she were to take on Viktoria, her name? Maria. "You may arise. Levente, my son." Maria held her hand out, and he leaned up and kissed her knuckle. But before he could move away, "This is the last time we will speak of Viktoria. For, I wish her to be alive not dead. I need her." And with those words, a loud snap echoed through the room, and Levente laid their lifeless. Maria took a torch, and lit his body. "Let this be a lesson to all of you. And due make sure you have taken notes. For tonight we leave for Viktoria's home." Maria looked out the window, with her blood red hues.
"Milady." Etel began, "What is it, my child?" Maria asked, "What of the other problem?" Etel asked, "Those disgusting beasts? Those inhumane animals? That is why we need Viktoria. If she will not help us, we will have to make her help us. And Etel, I will not apologize for killing your husband. He had what was coming to him. And he will not kill my grandchild." Maria stated, "What?" Etel asked softly, "You've heard me correctly, Vitkoria is my grandchild. And Kamilla is my daughter." Maria stated, as she turned around on her heal, and walked passed the shocked Etel.
------------------------------------Back Too Viktoria's Castle------------------------
Viktoria stood there, as she felt a hand against her shoulder, "Hello, mother." Viktoria stated, "How did you know it was of me?" Kamilla asked, "Because I am not stupid, nor am I blind. I saw you in the corner of my eye." Viktoria stated, "They are coming for me, aren't they?" Viktoria asked, "Us." Kamilla replied. "Us? What do you mean, us?" Viktoria looked at her mother, "You and I are the only of our kind. Vampires that can not die. Even with whatever men throw at us. We come from a very powerful blood line." Kamilla sighed, "And seeing I disobeyed the order, our Coven. They will surely wish for my head as well. I wasn't allowed to tell you, that I was, indeed your true mother." Kamilla, "Why all of these lies? Do they think it protects anyone? Do they think that our lives are much better with all of these lies?!" Viktoria asked, and Kamilla sighed, "No. They think what they want us to know, and what we want to know, to us is the truth, and to them, they know of the truth but refused to speak this unto us. And I am certainly, sure we will find out the truth shortly." Kamilla stated.
"Will they hurt Amalia?" Viktoria asked, Kamilla shook her head, "They can not, without hurting you. And they will not do that, for if they do. They will all certainly die. My darling daughter, have you ever heard of Lycans?" Kamilla asked, "Werewolves, you mean?" Viktoria asked, as she was now staring into her mother's glassy blue hues, "Yes, they have now resurfaced, and they want us all dead. Every single one of us. Including the new born." Kamilla stated, "And where are they?" Viktoria asked, "They are coming. And I do know this is why the Elders need us so." Kamilla stated, "Funny, I thought the Elders would be able to handle themselves." Viktoria rolled her eyes, "As I thought this as well. But they will not stop until you and I are one of them." Kamilla stated, "Th..." Viktoria looked at her, "I know, they are here." Viktoria whispered the rest.
As the Elders approached the door, Viktoria was already in front of them, "Look, Viktoria, and her mother, Kamilla." Lazar stated, "Oh look a disgusting form of a Vampire, nice to see you again, Lazar." Viktoria stated with a hiss, "Can I kill her now, mother?!" Lazar stated with an angered tone, "I shall love to see you try." Viktoria winked, Maria nodded her head, and pulled Etel and Borbala back, "Then show her why she should join the elders, Lazar." Maria smiled eagerly, "Borbala, if you wish not to see your husband die, I suggest you turn around. Though does Etel know that you were having an affair with Levente?" Maria asked, and Etel looked towards Borbala, "What? Is this of the truth?!" Etel asked, "I am sorry..." Borbala whispered. Maria only smirked, as she found a chair that was outside, and sat down, "This should be quite of a show." Maria sat like a perfect lady. Borbala was to her left, with her right hand on Maria's left shoulder. Etel stood to Maria's right, with her left hand on Maria's right shoulder, "Enjoy the show, ladies!" Maria clapped, "Well? Shall we?" Maria asked.
--------------------------------------Viktoria and Lazar's Fight------------------------------------
Viktoria looked at Lazar, "Why are you even trying, brother?! We are of in the same Coven, and yet you wish for my head! How pathetic!" Viktoria bared her abnormally large incisors, and her hues began to flicker, "Because I want to be the one who kills you, dear sister!" Lazar ran towards Viktoria. Viktoria felt the jolt of Lazar pushing her against the gravel, she then kneed him in the ribs, Lazar stopped, "Fucking bitch!" Viktoria laughed, "Now is that anyway to speak to a lady?" Viktoria grinned, "Your no lady!" Lazar screamed as he once again dashed towards her. Viktoria smiled, as she dashed towards him. They were now locked together. Viktoria was now hissing at Lazar, "Give it up, brother, you will not be able to kill me! And for you shall see." Viktoria smirked, "See what?" Lazar asked with laughter. But before he could make the next move. Viktoria picked him up by the throat, and slammed him too the ground. Lazar gasped, "Get up, now!" Viktoria yelled, her hues were now pitch black.
Lazar stood, and slowly pulled his sword out of the sheath, "Come sister, shall we dance?" Lazar asked, and Kamilla threw her sword to Viktoria, "Let us shall." Viktoria stated, she took the first swing, and metal connected with Lazar's sword, they began to swing their swords at each other. The swords danced against each other. Viktoria's voice was getting odd, as if two were in here, "Come brother, can you not fight better than this?" Viktoria asked, as her sword slid against Lazar's arm, cutting him deep. Lazar hissed, "You are pathetic!" Lazar stated, "Says the one bleeding." Viktoria winked, as she lunged at him again, and he reversed her move, "Check." Lazar stated, as he went to swing. Viktora lunged him, and thrust the end of the sword into Lazar's chest, she continued to push the sword into him, until she was now next to his ear, "Check mate." Viktoria stated, she grabbed Lazar's body, and dragged him back to Maria.
Lazar was gasping for his life. Borbala went to help her lover, but Maria grabbed, "Do it, if you are so strong, kill him." Maria stated, with a grin, Viktoria turned on her heel, "I knew you were always pathetic." Maria hissed, she saw Viktoria with something in her hand, Viktoria threw the candle against Lazar's body, and soon he caught flame, "Is this what you wanted?" Viktoria asked, as she licked off the blood from her lips. Her hues flickered once again to a deep red, "Is this what you want?! To kill me?!" Viktoria asked, "I WANT TOO!" Borbala screamed. Maria snapped her fingers, "Borbala, go forth, and kill your sister." Maria smiled, Borbala walked towards Viktoria, "Stop! Enough, Maria!" Kamilla stated, "Why have you come here? The truth this time." Kamilla snarled.
Maria arose from her seat. "I want to kill those disgusting beasts that head our way." Maria stated, both Kamilla and Viktoria laughed hysterically, "And yet, you of the strongest, you couldn't do this on your own?" Viktoria asked, "Is that anyway to speak to an Elder?!" Maria asked with anger in her tone, "I didn't know I was staring at an Elder, you let your pawns do your work for you, and that is why Lazar is dead." Viktoria stated. "Oh, the naive, Viktoria. Does she know, Kamilla?" Maria took a step closer, her fingers ran down her daughter's cheek, "Do I know what?" Viktoria asked, as she looked towards her mother, "There is a bigger reason why the Counsel is here, my darling daughter." Kamilla stated, "And what is that?" Viktoria asked.
"To reunite us. My dear grandchild. You see, I am like you. But it'll take more than your mother and I. We all need to fight. I need your help, Viktoria." Maria stated, but in the corner of Maria's eye, she saw Borbala running towards Viktoria. When Borbala got past Maria. Maria grabbed her, and held her by the throat, "I thought I had told you, not to go and try." With a quick twist a loud pop was heard, and flesh being ripped from the body. Maria was now holding Borbala's head, "Etel, do you wish to join her?!" Etel shook her head, "N..No milady." Etel replied as she watched Maria throw Borbala's body and head into the fire.
"Now, you will join me, Viktoria. Your mother has already made up her mind." Maria stated, "I am not of my mother, Maria. And never will be." Viktoria hissed, "So you wish for us to die?" Maria asked, "If you are truly my grandmother, then I quite certain that you two may handle yourselves." Viktoria rolled her eyes, "What of Amalia? Do you not wish to protect her?" Maria asked, and Viktoria looked at her, "You wouldn't." Viktoria spat, "Oh, I would, and believe me, I have that power to do so. So, I ask you again, will you join us?" Maria asked.
Viktoria looked towards the window, of the room that Amalia was in, she slowly turned towards Maria, her hues rested onto the ground. She then took in a deep breath, "Yes. I shall join."
