Memoirs of the Night-Chpt 3The room swam before my eyes; I was unsure whether it was the shock or the poison. Whatever it was left me little time to contemplate this, as I was soon unable to sit up. I collapsed back onto the bed, and Rosaline leant over me. She looked concerned, her face blurred. Everything faded to black.
I awoke; the fire spreading through my blood had returned and I writhed in pain. It was all I could do to prevent myself from screaming aloud. Rosaline rushed over, her eyes wide with empathy. I wanted to soothe her, to tell her it was alright and that I would be fine, but I couldnt find my voice. I forced myself to remain still and she gently caressed my face. Her cool fingers felt like ice against my skin, the temperature increasing as she leant in to kiss me.
She bowed her head, her lips next to my ear.
Im going to bite you again; it will ease the pain a little.
Her face was full of remorse; it was obvious that she didnt want to hurt me. I longed to look out of
Memoirs of the night-Chpt 2I stared blankly at her. What had she just said? My brain attempted to unscramble the words while I could feel a warmth spreading through me. She looked up, anticipating a reply I was unable to voice. I simply smiled at her, my blue eyes analyzing her every movement.
I tried to reply, but my voice was gone. The shock had taken away my last breath leaving me speechless. Rosaline broke the silence.
Im sorry, I understand if you dont feel the same. I just... I needed to tell you. If you dont want to be around me, then Ill leave and find someone to nurse you.
Nurse me? I was confused, and I looked at her questioningly, awaiting explanation.
I turned you into... Into one of us. Youre like me now. Stronger, and youre going to live forever. But while you recover, youre going to be weak. The way I had to change you will be painful; the poison in my saliva will slowly kill all your cells. They will re-animate eventually, but its
Memoirs of the Night-Chpt 1Eurgh. My head! It was agony! I tried to move, expecting to fall out of bed and crawl across the floor until I found ibuprofen. I couldnt move! What happened? Slowly, the recent events crept back into my memory. I wanted to check my neck, to reassure myself it had all been a nightmare, but my hands wouldnt move. They seemed to be restrained; I was handcuffed to the bed!
I finally opened my eyes, watching the ceiling swim before it settled into distinguishable shapes. I seemed to be in Rosalines room. What was going on? Why had she bitten me? I tried to scream, but the noise was muffled. I was gagged! I strained against my bonds, trying to yank myself free. I didnt care how much noise I was making until I realised the rattles had drowned out the tapping of footsteps.
Shhhhh! Emilia, its alright!
Rosalines attempt to sooth me seemed insignificant as I struggled against my bonds. She had attacked me, tied me up and held me hostage, yet she e
Memoirs of the Night-PrologueHer eyes glistened with excitement as she leant in towards me. She had a secret on the tip of her tongue, willing to escape. She wanted to tell me! I leant further in, motioning for her to whisper the secret in my ear. It was then I felt her razor-sharp teeth sink into my neck.
Flashes, like light bulbs popping in front of my eyes. Was I dying? I sincerely hoped so; the pain shooting through my body was excruciating. It felt like my blood was on fire, searing though my veins, intent on burning me from the inside out. I wish it would end! Surely I should be passing out from the pain by now!
