There was a blur figure next to my body. I had been unconscious beside the front door. I was unable to count minutes. My heart was in panic when I saw three incredibly beautiful ladies. They looked unnaturally gorgeous. They were staring at me eagerly. It seemed they were waiting for me. And he was right next to them standing straight and firm. No one could deny their angelic appearances. I tried to stand, one of the ladies came closer swiftly to me grabbing my hand, helping me to stand.
“Don’t be panic. You are safe.” _ Her tone was polite and soft.
“Hey, what’s happening here?” _ I sighed to him as it wasn’t feeling real. I might be dreaming. A dream felt so real or a reality looked like dream!
“Oh Vlad, how could you resist your temptation sensing her maiden blood every second?”. _ She asked him with tricky smile. I was staring at each of them in horror. He remained speechless and unmoved. Finally I got to know his name. His name infused bittersweet tingling in my head.
She was pulling me to an old wooden sofa, other two ladies were delighted, their sparkling eyes were mischievous. I was trying to push her away but her grab was vigorous. She whispered some words glaring viciously at me and my hands had been tied with shackles by invisible force. I was more terrified watching the old painting of four incredible women, three of them were infront of me, but the one who wasn’t here, was wearing same black pearl around her neck. Crows and Ravens were whirling above the castle with eerie noise.
“We have been waiting your arrival for a century. We’ll be grateful for your sacrifice.” _ Her words stricked me with horror.
“What sacrifice you’re telling about?” _ I gulped.
“One of our sister was burnt by the town’s people a century ago. She was the most powerful among us, she had the gift of premonition. She predicted before her death, she would be resurrected in a girl’s body wearing her black pearl on her hundredth death anniversary.” _ The red haired woman gave me another shock wave.
“So you’re going to kill me!” _ My voice was begging.
“You’ll live metaphysically. Only your body will be taken by our sister so that she can relive with us again. For that we need your beating heart but ripped out by a vampire’s claws only when you are alive.” _ The woman who tied my hands spoke out these horror sentences. Now I knew who was the vampire here with blood temptation when Vlad put his hand on my chest before I could notice him coming.
“Why? You don’t need to do this!” _ My eyes were full of tears, my voice was shaken.
“I need to do.. I can be human again.” _ There was sadness in his tone. He was more helpless than me. I was a tiny human among witches and vampire. I couldn’t decide, should I praise his tricky trap? Or to fell for those emerald eyes? My chest was frozen by his touch. The Queens were chanting spells around me,my soul would be glorified if it would be freed by Vlad. His cold hand was still on my chest.
“What are you waiting for?” _ I gasped looking at his godly face.
( I woke up on my bed, I saw my parents having breakfast and they were calling me to join. I was in home and I wasn’t sure, it was a nightmare or a dream!)
