“You’re going to save an angel?” Stan asked me with a laugh.
He repeated it as if it was one of the most impossible things he had ever heard in the world. Well, can’t blame him. I’ve been thinking of it too as an impossible one when I’ve read the last piece of her bucket list where she wrote, save me.
“How could you save someone who doesn’t need saving? I mean, Cassy saved us.”
"Maybe, I can look for her cure?" I just answer because even I can't tell how. How am I the only one who could save her?
"Bro, just ask her."
“She won’t tell me. Also, I know she’s listening.” I looked next to me, not just sure where she was sitting. “She told me that she didn’t disappear. I just lost the ability to see her because her blood runn
Vladimir’s POVShe was gone. Or maybe, that’s what I thought because she didn’t see me for a week. I am going crazy thinking about what happened to her.What is she doing?Is she okay? I don’t want to think she’s gone. I want to believe that she’s just too tired so she can’t use her human form. I just want to think that I lost every ability I have to see her because maybe I lost all her blood in my veins.I tried to calm myself because that might hurt her if she’s beside me so I focus on other things. I spent most of my time on the council, helping the other house restore it. I attended a meeting to replace my father’s absence even though it bored me so much.I went to university, listened to lectures that didn't even make sense to me. I tried everything just to stop me from thinking about her. Yet, everytime
Vladimir’s POVI get it now. I understand everything now.One, four, three… that’s not I love you. Yeah, that’s a code. That’s a number. That’s the number of souls and memories she had collected. It should be the number of souls and memories she should have collected way back then.One thousand four hundred three souls, yet she wasn’t able to reach that number because she saved me. She gave her blood to me, making me alive again yet she never thought that would make me come back to my true form… vampire.So, since then I could see her because her blood runs inside my veins. I fell in love. Everything happened. She knew that when she saved me she would lose all those souls and memories she’d collected. The afterlife will be in chaos. She knows. She knew. She knew but she still saved me.Why? Why saved me? I d
Vladimir’s POVI woke up inside the bookshop. Fermine stared at me for a while then he turned his gaze back to the book he was reading.“So, how’s sleep?”“When did I start sleeping and dreaming?”"When you held her hand," he replied simply. "She has that amazing power."I thought for a while what to say but I just can’t find the words I need to express what I am feeling. I was like floating above the clouds and suddenly I fell without anyone catching me. I just don’t know what to feel.Am I too selfish to think I don’t like it? That it wasn't the one I wanted to do. Okay, I don’t know what to do but I felt there’s something to do, not that. We can still make another plan. I mean, there’s always a plan b, right?Wait, I don’t know. I'm confused.
Vladimir’s POV“Kill her !?” I shouted. "Are you crazy?""You're asking." He stood up straight. "That's the easiest way I know.""How is that easy?" I said annoyed. “You can’t just kill someone you love. And, if I kill her, what will happen? ” I shook my head. “Really, seriously, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what is really happening. I don't even know who to listen to. You angels always have different stories to tell. Not even sure if you are lying.”“Just find Syne. Please, just find her.” He disappeared after saying that though he whispered something that sent shivers to my spine.I stood there staring at the painting. I do not know what to do. They’re giving me a headache. Angels speak metaphorically that sometimes I really don’t know what’s real. Am I supposed t
Vanna’s POV“Vlad is in danger and we don’t even know how to save him! We don't even know where he is!” Van yelled, annoyed as he was talking to Via.Earlier they had been arguing about what they should do. I called Mom to help me with these two because I was sure that they would take another step without a plan. I mean, it's just Van.“Chill, okay? You know we can’t afford to go to war against angels,” Via replied.“Yes, I know! But what do we do? It’s Vlad, it’s freaking Vladimir, our brother! ” The glass was about to be shattered by the sheer force of his shout.“How about Cassy, I mean maybe he won't leave Vlad alone? She saved her before, why not now?” Via hoped, if only Cassy could hear us she would hear the pity in Via's voice.They fell silent after that.
Vladimir’s POVI wasn’t sure of the exact time, but I heard the bell ring ten times, making me feel dizzy than I was before. It was a day of torture, or maybe it wasn’t just a day. I think I have stayed at the tower for more than a day. I lost count of the time, it just flies so fast. I wonder if my family is looking for me or maybe they thought I was just playing around, looking for Cassy. Hopefully, so that they won't be involved.My whole body is also very sore. I felt like dying. Funny, but Gabriel didn’t even touch me to begin with yet I felt my whole body burning like hell. I just heard him flicking his hands a lot of times giving me pain, breaking my bones, and tearing my soul apart though I am not sure about having a soul, just metaphor.It went and went until I got tired, and he got tired too, because of frustration. Cassy still didn’t appear. Well, I like it that w
Vladimir’s POVI woke up but I can’t remember when I fell asleep. My last memory is of Uriel kneeling in front of me before Gabriel stabbed the knife in my side. Did I die?Or wait, no. I’m dead? Am I dead?No, maybe? I don’t know anything about heaven or hell, but I am very sure Fermine’s bookshop is neither of the two. How did I get back here?Am I just dreaming all these times? I felt myself. The wound on my body is gone. I am no longer weak.I’m back as if nothing happened.I looked around, called for Fermine, but he’s not around. I decided to go out. It’s still the same place. Other infrastructures are still broken and vampires are still around.It’s like I was dreaming ... so, it was all a dream? The angel Gabriel ... and everything!Ugh! I g
Vladimir’s POVI woke up with tears in my eyes. I immediately felt every wound Gabriel gave me. My whole body was still bleeding. But, no amount of pain can compensate for the pain in my heart.It seemed like I wanted to open my whole body to find out if I had a heart because it was so painful. I can not breathe. This is killing me. I cried silently.It was just a dream. I was dreaming. It was so real that I never even thought it was a dream.She's great. I don’t know if I’ll be happy or annoyed because it’s all just a dream.Where is she?I was brought back to the present when Gabriel hit me with the hard iron. I screamed in pain as it slowly burned my body."Finally, you are awake!" Irritated, he said. "I thought you wouldn't wake up. It's been days! What the hell did you dream about?"&nb
