Some people say the soul leaves the body when you die. In the end, you’ll be led to an eternal resting place. Given immortal’s blood on my death resulted in an awakening. Now my grave will forever be empty as I walk the earth alive…but dead.
My name is Anna Holden. I’m what legends and myths call a vampire. It’s such a strange thing to know that I will never die in a natural sense. Does that make me eternal? Will I see the end of the world? What will happen to me when the earth no longer exists? It’s frightening to think about.
Sometimes I wonder if Tristan made the right decision by bringing me back. The night my human side died, my spirit rose. I watched him drink from my veins. The farther I ascended, the more I sensed the presence of family. I wanted to join them. I reached for them. But then, I tasted his blood, cold on my lips, bitter on my tongue.
He called me back to my body. So, I turned away from the light. Darkness enveloped me in its arms. Someone, some…thing took over me and it wanted more of his essence, more of him.
