I was spacing out. I can’t clearly think when I’ve reached the council but I’ve tried my best not to think of it for a while to focus on what’s happening.
My Dad and Mom were already standing at the front gate waiting for us. We were joined by Stan and his brother as well as their parents who already went inside to lock the system. Vanna was also inside with the other owl.
We left some guards outside the area to patrol while we locked the gate. Dad made a barrier out of fire to lock us from the outside and I saw him a while ago putting some fire on the ground. I freeze the inside of the area.
"Brother," Via reached for the box. When I opened it, it was blood from a human. “Mom bought some from the blood bank. We need it, you need it. ”
I nodded and drank a bag of blood from a human. I felt the effect of it on my veins as
Vladimir’s POVAs the snowflakes fall, the half-blood runs towards us. Van and I both run towards the front door. As soon as the door closed, the arrows kept flying outside. We waited for them to come inside but it was only Ashlon who went inside. His companions were left outside, some of them were already lying on the floor. The explosion of planted bombs outside has also begun.I saw Dad draw his sword towards Ashlon. Mom and Van started to fight with the remaining guards while Via and I ran towards the center of the council. I have not been able to see the incident yet.I started freezing my way up to the tower. I know Stan and the others are all standing in the center while I go up the tower. It was my job after all, to go and wait inside the tower. I never used my full power before, I never thought I would use it.But they told me the great risk I will be taking if I will
Vladimir’s POVI woke up. I saw myself, lying on the ground, dead. After a minute, my eyes opened. It was only when I found myself in our old house that I realized I am dreaming. I am standing inside my dream, or maybe it wasn’t a dream, it was my memories.From our house, I suddenly went to the streets. I found myself standing on the crossroads going home. I noticed the woman walking behind me. She was wearing an ocean blue dress, the same dress I gave to - she’s Cassy. Cassandra, with brown long hair.They were walking towards me, no, they couldn’t see me. I am seeing my memories. Am I already dead? I tried to remember what happened. Is this what it looks like to be dead?Cassy, it’s Cassandra but there was something new about her. She was glowing, the blue light was shining around her. She was wearing a mini glass hour on her neck.
Vladimir’s POVI still had tears in my eyes when the place changed. This time I was standing in front of a church. I had memories of growing up as a human and I remember praying the Lord’s prayer yet I never learned how to pray on my own.The old me stood there for a minute until I walked to the side of the church, where I found myself entering a gift shop, though I wasn’t able to enter because of the strong force that’s keeping me outside.“I mean no harm,” The old me said to a young lady. “I just want to ask something, to know something. People talk, their stories lead me to you, you must be Mira.”“What does a Fear need in me?”"I need ingredients and spells to summon an angel."Summon an angel, I summoned an angel?I haven’t seen how, but the next pictu
Vladimir’s POVI woke up like it was yesterday, with my tears flowing down my cheeks. I can’t explain the pain in my heart. It’s like even the word hurt is not appropriate. I can’t explain it, all I can feel is pain, that I wanted to die with it.It was even a miracle that I woke up. I never thought I would. All I know is I was supposed to die. But I didn’t.I woke up in my own room after days. It was Via that I first saw who told me everything that happened. A lot of half-bloods died or should I say been wiped-out except for the king which to my knowledge was put in the council’s underground area since it wasn’t destroyed. He was there for punishment though I think he actually doesn't need it anymore. His eyes were gone from a burn and he’s been telling us it’s because of angels.I don’t know exactly what happened and I can
Vladimir’s POV“We don’t respond to summons,” he said, laughing a bit. "We listen to prayers."That is what he told me when I asked for ingredients to summon an angel. He said nothing else so I was forced to leave. I don’t usually do this, or let me say I’ve never done that in my whole life. Maybe I did, but wasn’t sincere because I never felt I needed to do this.I went inside the church. First, I thought I would get burned. I thought there would be a strong force that would keep me inside but I was wrong, because I was free to enter inside the church.The town was destroyed, but I figured out that this is the only place that stood still even after everything that happened. Angels must be guarding this place.I stood on the side and thought of what I’m going to say. I still don’t know. I don’t know if h
Vladimir’s POV“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
