She is a much more slender version of her mother, with her father's eyes.  She's nowhere near as heavily muscled as her mother is (she takes after her father in that respect, too), but let's just say that certain "attributes" did get passed down.  Yeah, she takes after her mother in more ways than being a vampire lol.

I haven't played with a vampire yet; your story makes me want to try one! I love all the vampire movies and your story has definitely got me looking forward to your next chapter!

First of all:  This thread should probably be moved to the Miscellaneous Stories child board, since that's the category it would really fall under I think.

Presto chango, your wish is my command.  :D

Thanks for the move!

Part V

To co-exist is to suffer.  Two people cannot occupy the same world without eventually causing each other pain…either through intent or by happenstance.  Individuality is both our greatest gift and our darkest curse.  I, myself, have gone out of my way to minimize the damage caused in the wake of me living my life, but sometimes you can’t see your crimes until the harm is done.

You see, Day Walker:  Serena was not an only child.



Much later, Dedrick and I had a son, and we welcomed him with the same exuberance and loved him with the same reckless abandon that we did his sister.  We thought ourselves to be doubly blessed…but nothing could have prepared us for the reality he brought with him.



Serena and Adrian were diametric opposites of one another, almost as if it was cognizant choice made by both of them as their spirits intermingled in the vacuity between life and death prior to their conception.  Where Serena brought joy to those who made her acquaintance, Adrian inflicted sorrow on any who crossed his path.  As Serena was infinite in her capacity for compassion, Adrian’s wrath knew no limits.  My daughter:  the exquisite creator…My son:  the ruthless destroyer. 

And as the days rolled on, he only became more vicious.



Adrian and Serena were as different as the night and the day that they walked in respectively.  This son, you see, parallels his mother in one important respect:  he inherited my gift.  But if traits are truly inherited throughout subsequent generations, it was not I that he truly took after, but his grandmother in darkness:  Elvira.



Before Serena was born, Dedrick and I had been looking at larger houses to accommodate our growing family.  But after I became pregnant, the homes that we had previously decided on suddenly became more expensive or unavailable.  To this day, I do not know the reason with absolute certainty, but I maintain some suspicions.  The only place to live that suited our needs and was still within our budget was a penthouse…directly across the street from Elvira’s.  It was a nice enough place, and Elvira and I were still very close, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that this was not an accident.



Perhaps it was her desire to watch me and my children more closely, but I cannot say as I never posed the question.  And indeed, she did participate in their lives to a great extent and even seemed to care for my daughter, to the extent of which she was capable.  Serena even came to see her as a surrogate grandmother, as my mother was long gone before her birth.



But Adrian took his darkness to extremes that caused even Elvira to come to curse his name.  If my old friend did have a machination, I am well certain that Adrian did not fit into it as she had hoped.   My only comfort is that his father did not live long enough to see his dark son realize his terrible potential. 



Mercifully, it has been a long time since I have seen his face or bore witness to his handiwork, so I can only wonder if this world has been cleansed of his stain.  But as familiar as I am with life, I don’t dare to hope that it fosters any sense of justice.

While on some level, I believe there to be no more serious a wrong than to speak ill of your own flesh and blood, but it is the obligation of every responsible being to maintain ownership of their misdeeds.  Adrian is my sin…and all of the good that I have done cannot make up for this unspeakable crime.  As I do still love my son, it saddens me to no small extent to have to say this:  I have no greater regret than I do for this darkness that I called forth and inflicted on the world.



Do not ask, as I will not speak of his deeds to you.  Even for the likes of the Night Walkers, one is never the same having heard these accounts.  As I told you:  there are some secrets that are best left unspoken.  Indeed, I have shared much with you this evening, but these are not my tales to tell.

And if you are wise, you will pray that you are never in a position to hear them.

I haven't actually created a back story for Adrian...not yet, anyways.  ;)  But if it's something that can cause the likes of the Bridgeport vampires to feel uneasy, it's got to be pretty bad.  They're all evil, and most of them are even in the criminal career (and Elvira's LTW is to be an Empress of Evil, even though she's a doctor).

Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?
