Ch. 12: Strange CoincidenceLydia slipped out into the rain, forming Obfuscate around her the instant she stepped outside. The second she was hidden, the Nosferatu felt a sudden thirst assail her. Its grip was terrifyingly powerful. She felt like she was was going into withdrawal from some powerful drug. Her throat burned, she felt wobbly. All she was aware of was that she needed blood NOW.
Hurriedly she felt around her for that bag of blood she had saved. As soon as she found it, Lydia pierced the soft plastic and sucked greedily at the bag. But very quickly that was gone and Lydia found herself wanting more.
She stole down a nearby alleyway, sniffing out potential prey. A couple of rats skittered by her feet. In spite of her Clans ability to draw more nutrients from rodent blood, normally Lydia would have wanted to puke at the thought of putting one of those filthy things near her mouth.

Ch. 11: A Dark and Stormy Night
Sebastian sat at his bedroom desk, furiously going through paperwork and hoping to get some of it done before torpor set in. Some of it concerned his prized company, while the rest had to do with vampire society. He pressed his lips tightly together in annoyance at some of the petty problems that managed to make their presence known to him. Lets see... there was that brutal serial killer down in Santa Monica, who had lately torn up some local man and strung him up for all to see on the Pier. It was obviously the work of one of the Kindred, most likely some Caitiff mutt out for revenge against those who had bullied him in high school. Sebastian grimaced in distaste: it was sloppy work, to be sure. Murder no longer disturbed him; he had survived bloody Waterloo, after all. But the least this butcher could do was exercise a bit of self control. With a light exhale, Sebastian signed the report with his brief yet flourishing signatur
A Letter to My Younger SelfDear Younger Self,
There is so much I want to tell you! I want to tell you about all your adventures through elementary and high school, and all the awesome people you are going to meet in college! I also want to tell you about all the mistakes you are going to make, and how to avoid doing the same thing I did. Life is going to become SO exciting in the next few years!
But, as with all things, there are going to be pitfalls along the way, and I assure you they are not going to be easy. So all I'm going to say to you is this:
No matter what happens, you are a loved and loving individual. Stick to your talents and interests, they are what set you apart from the rest. Be fair to yourself, because it's ok to make mistakes. And never, ever even think about giving up.
Your ever loving, ever learning older self.
Crown of ThornsShe wakes up with red staining her pillow
and the taste of blood like iron in her mouth
It stains her teeth and leaks from her lips, and as she
rinses her mouth out, she can’t help thinking that
it’s better than dirt and ashes
it feels like she’s wearing a noose
of broken promises and shattered glass
that tightens around her throat with every day that passes
She nails a smile to her face
and doesn't let herself think the word dying
Keep in Touch!
