I'm taking advantage of these new 'orphans' to raise one up and make him my own child.
In case any of you were confused, I am a vampire. I've lived for, as far as I can tell, about 2,700 years. Every now and then, when we get lonely and can't think of anything to occupy ourselves with, we decide to go out into the world and live under the guise of a mortal and constantly put ourselves around mortals. They're sweet to us, beautiful to look at and marvel...
It's a very dangerous thing to get involved with mortals. Not that we think they pose a danger to us, no, never have I been truly threatened by a mortal- but that my own kind, vampires, pose the greatest threat. And then, when we become so over-come with soft, mortal things, our attentions are not focused on security but on the lovely things around us, and it is then that tragedy can often strike, as it has so many others that have only tried to live in peace. To live in such a way, only really as long as time and deceptions can allow, is the only thing we'd like to do sometimes.
And so, now I'd like to live this life, taking care of this boy I've named 'Alessio'- my 'defender'- and raise him up with everything I can give him. The world is his if he should ask for it. But I've seen into his soul, and there is only goodness and confusion there, but none the less he has much promise in him.
