Living for a hundred years is exhausting and boring.
It was never an exciting life like most of the human believe. Doing the same things again and again. Damn, it's so frustrating!
I was born with a royalty blood flowing in my veins. I can have all the things I wish. With merely a snap of my fingers, I can have everything I asked for.
Being a prince of a big vampire clan is pleasurable, but not formidable enough to keep me entertained. And then there is one night... an unexpected evening that shifted my entire life.
A night with ample of surprises and excitement.
I'm was silently reading a book on the bench in the middle of the park. Humans are everywhere. There were families who dine together on the grass. Children who are happily playing, teenagers who take unlimited pictures of themselves and then post it on social media as if like they want to show the whole world all the angles and curves of their faces.
Humans are entertaining.
Then there was this one girl that has caught my attention. She looks completely intoxicated as she impulsively swiveled side to side while walking. She was carrying a bottle of alcohol and I can sense the sadness which was certainly written all over her lovely face. Her cheeks are flushed in light pink as her eyes are nearly closed.
I just can't take my eyes off her. She seems so... vulnerable.
She stopped in front of a wishing well while holding a piece of coin. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. Suddenly, the world stopped. The commotions in the park melted down, the people became dull and gray and I see nothing except her face; that was so vivid in my eyes.
That exact moment, for the very first time in a hundred years. I saw the genuine definition of the word beautiful.
"Sana magkaroon na ako ng lovelife. Gusto ko iyong pinakagwapo, pwede na ang kamag-anak ni Johnny Depp. Pinaka-seksi, dapat may matitigas na six-packs abs at pumuputok na biceps. Ayoko ng hairy ah, kadiri! Dapat hindi mabuhok ang bulbo—este ang chest! Higit sa lahat bigyan mo ako ng pinakanakakaakit na lalaki sa buong mundo. Iyong kaiingitan ako ng lahat ng bilat, ex bilat at half-bilat sa planet earth!"
I found myself chuckling with her wish... Seriously? She wished that? And what is bilat again? Her words are alien to me.
After that, she sobbed and walked away. And for a record, I found myself following her.
Great Vladimir. You're now a stalker?
There's a young couple who walked towards our way. There were happily talking with each other while the guy was kissing the girl's cheeks.
The sad girl looked at them with a long face. And again, I saw the bitterness on her face. She looks lonely. I wonder who's the bastard who broke this little girl's heart. I feel like punching the guy's nose.
Okay, so where the hell did that came from?
"Mag bi-break din kayo! Walang forever! Sa EDSA lang meron! Sa inyo wala!"
I was shocked to see her shouting at the couples.
"Ang bitter mo! Tulog mo na lang 'yan!" the guy said then the couple walked away.
"Pakshet 'yon! Kapal ng mukha! Sumasagot pa siya kala naman niya ang gwapo niya! Kamukha naman niya si Squidwird. Laki ng ilong niya! Pwe!"
I chuckled again. She's really witty.
She looked towards my direction, maybe she heard me giggled, so I immediately opened my book and pretended that I'm reading.
I glanced sideways to peek at her. She's squinting her eyes to me. Then I heard her cursed under her breath and saying that I'm "chismoso" then she strolled away. She rode a cab and I followed her without hesitation.
The girl's apartment is modest but neat. She was now deadly sleeping on her bed and snoring so loud like a pig. I silently sneered. She really amused me a lot.
I saw some shattered of glasses on the floor together with a broken rectangular brown frame. I scanned the picture inside it and saw a young man and a girl wearing a wedding dress and suit.
"Jonathan.... pakyu ka Jonathan... makakalimutan din kita."
She was sleep talking. I stared at her face for a second, minutes, hours. I don't even know how long. As I stared at her innocent charm, it made me think why is she crying? Why does she look so hurt? Why does she love someone who doesn't love her back? Why do humans were always extra emotional?
I suddenly felt this weird urge of feeling to eliminate all the aches in her heart. That I like to see her happy again...
Yeah... I like to see her happy.
I looked at her closely. My fingers gently caressed her delicate skin as light as dust. Her cheeks were redden. Her eyes were closed and lips were partly open. And I sense a strong desire to taste that lips...
I gulped hardly and put back my self control.
"You like her?" Romeo, my cousin all of a sudden appeared at the corner.
I raised my eyebrow, "What?"
He grinned mischievously , "You're interested in her right?"
"So what if I am? It's none of your bloody business. And why the hell are you following me?"
"I'm not. I just saw you entered this apartment. My current blood donator is on the other side of this wall."
This time I sneered. Blood donator again? He's very greedy, he changed blood donators every week and quickly disposed them when he's done and bored. Tsk, poor humans.
"It's been a while since you have your last blood donator Vladimir, aren't you hungry?"
I stared back to him. Yes. That's true. Blood donator was the source of our food. Humans were signed under a contract to be our blood donator. In that way, loss of humanity will be avoided and our existence will remain a secret.
But it's been more than a decade since the last time I drank a human blood. You can call it a diet, like a vegan diet for mundane words. I'm actually against drinking their blood. I just felt wrong about it. Like it was unfair to use them.
"Come on Vlad, I know you're craving for the fresh blood. Hindi ka pa ba nagsasawa sa dugo ng rabbit? Man... it tastes like dirt," he crinkled his nose.
I rolled my eyes at him. Then look at this girl's sleeping face.
"Her fragrance is all over the place. She smells so sweet... and her scent is like, hmm... strawberry. Isn't your favorite?" He teased me..
He leaned down closer to the girl's face while he sniffed her neck...
I had this impulse to shove him away. I don't like seeing anyone touching her.
"Are you sure you don't like her Vlad?" I didn't respond back. Romeo shrugged his shoulders and grinned to me devilishly.
"Okay... then I'm going to have her as my blood donator—"
I immediately burst out with wrath and grasped him hard on the neck. My eyes were dark and my two mighty and sharp fangs showed up, ready to attack, "No!" I growled lowly.
I won't let him touch her. Never.
"She's mine..." I moaned again gritting my teeth. This time, I'm certain he'll leave her alone.
Romeo snickered in amusement and raised his two hands, surrendering, "Okay bro... chill, she's now all yours."
I put him down and bestowed him a warning gaze. He just taps me on the shoulders and laughed playfully. He whispered something in my ears that I will never forget.
"This is gonna be exciting my cousin," then he transformed into a black bat and flew away.
I glanced back again to girl's slumbering face. From this day forward, I had vow with myself that I will protect her and make her happy.
