Ambrosie and I made our way to this Sorceress's home, he explained more to me about her as we traveled. Every step we took my heart grew more hopeful, this woman could really change things for me, help me navigate through all of this insanity and possibly save my brother. I was eager for any piece of information i could get that could aid my in saving my brother. Most of all I was eager to learn about exactly who I am.
" So does this woman have a name or do I just call her O' Great and Powerful Sorceress!" I said trying to lighten up the mood.
At the corner of his mouth I saw a small smirk. That smirk warmed my heart and eased my mind.
" Yes, she does have a name Veneficia, which means exactly what she is in Latin."
" So her name is the word for Sorceress from the language of the dead, how very fitting. Is she a vampire like you and I?"
" Yes, she is but its a bit complicated. Veneficia isn't like you and I she doesn't feed off of humans.....she doesn't need human blood, but she does still need blood."
" Well what exactly does she need? Animal blood." I laughed at this thought, vampires surviving of animal blood was absolutely ridiculous. It didn't harber the same nutrients in Human blood. He laughed with me.
"No, not exactly. She has to feed the visions she has, Veneficia use to be a Venetor which was a group of Latin witches, Venetor means Hunter. The Venetors hunted vampires. They sacrificed our kind to produce their magic, vampire blood has many special qualities, when she was forcefully turned during a hunt her companions couldnt touch her by their laws but she was no longer one of them because she was now a vampire, she felt the same thirst as you and I but her senses rejected the smell of humans but other vampires smelled to her as humans do to us. The nature of her people was still within her so she feeds off of other vampires and their blood nourishes her and gives her the ability to still have her visions."
A shiver claimed my entire body, Veneficia would see us as her food. It was hard to stomach the thought, the hope I had was replaced by fear. What if she didn't want to use her magic to help me, what if she just wanted my blood. Then a thought struck me.
" I thought vampires couldnt be killed but by other vampires? How did the Venetros do it?"
" The Venetors were created of the same blood as ours they just had a few things in their blood we didnt, their teeth are similar to ours but are made only to pierce vampire skin, unlike Veneficia they cannot consume the blood because it will make them sick like if a human were to drink their own blood."
My heart sank so there are two threats to vampire kind.
" But we do not need to worry about venetors my darling no more exist in todays time. Veneficia is the only one of her kind and she is a very good friend of mine. She requires only a little payment for her services."
As he said this we had reached the front of a large spanish looking house that had a sinister feeling to it. I swallowed deeply, this was the home of Venefecia.
" And what payment does she want?"
