transylvania vampires

-don't look at me. leave me alone!
-what's wrong?
-there's nothing wrong.
-don't lie to me.
-everything's wrong.
-tell me.
-shut up. ok? just shut up! everything's wrong since the first day of my life! and by the way, stop behaving like i'm your little sister. i'm older than you.
-i don't understand... you're not that old...
-no. iulia didn't create me. i created her 110 years ago. you see my dear lorain, i'm 515 years old. without my human years. i was transform when i was 19. you see, Dracula, isn't just a myth. he was my creator, he was my father.
-i didn't...
-shhhh... he did die in 1476, as a human, but that's the year he was born as a vampire, and i was born as a human. i never knew my real parents, he took me away that night. my mom died when she gave me birth. he promised to what was left of his humanity, that he'll protect me and raise me as his own child. he never wanted to transform me, but i got sick of plague at 19, and i asked him to save me.
-how did he manage to show you life? i mean you two were so different...
-i didn't know why dad was sleeping all day long or why was he afraid of sunlight, but when i was 12, he told me. and than i started to bring humans as a breakfast every single night.
-how come? didn't people get suspicious?
-well we were changing places, living in small villages, so we didn't have a home. people were so stupid. i was asking them to help my mother, who was sick, that we needed food and water. no one knew where everyone disappeared. they didn't have a single clue...
-what happened?
-i made a big mistake after he transformed me... i asked him to stay in one place, a village called holbav. he told me it's dangerous, but i promised him i'll go for hunting in other places. i should have known that people would get suspicious if i go out as a brand new person, without plague. but i was so thirsty, so hungry... soon people started to be afraid of me, of us. they said we were satan's children. they came in the middle of the day, into our house. i wasn't home, only dad... they killed him.
-i'm sorry...
-don't be. it was my fault. i was out hunting in a town near by, and i slept there. when i got back, i saw the ash of our house. i felt dad's smell all over the place. i knew who kill him...
-what did you...
-i killed everyone in the village. i left stefan the last one. i played with him 4 days. i tortured him with every single torture dad learned me. and after that, i hung his head in a thorn. people got scared, and soon transylvania knew vlad dracula was back.
-where did you go after?
-i swiched places all over in romania. i lived in transylvania for 20 years, and than i went in other places, in moldova and the southen territory. i heard of elizabeth bathory of hungary. i knew she was one of us.
-heard about her, she used to take baths in virgin's blood.
-indeed lorain, that's what they say. but her aunt klara was a vampire. she transformed her when she was 25. she didn't die as people say. she died when you were 10. people did her the same as my father. they burnt her house down.
-darn. did you live with her?
-of course. she was like a sister and a mother to me. we lived together till the day she was killed. we crated iulia and a few others.
-so are we many?
-not quite.
-how come?
-my father was one of the first vampires of the world. my grandfather transformed him.
-oh and what about mircea the elder?
-he was a fool! maria, his wife, became one of us. he was so in love with her, he didn't even guess what is she. after he found up, he killed her. she didn't die as history says.
-who was the first one?
-i do not know my love. i do not know...
-andreea?
-yes lorain?
-don't cry anymore.
-why?
-it hurts me...
-i'm sorry.
-it's ok.
-lorain, what do you remember of your past?
-i know lorain wasn't my real name...what's wrong?
-i'm sorry... i have to tell you the truth.
-what truth?
- after 236 years of living with elizabeth, i decided i want to find my "other half". elizabeth had a spell... she did use black magic, so that's true too. it wasn't a sure answer, that spell gave us, but elizabeth told me i'll know when the other part will be born. i will know his name and i'll go and do whatever it takes to be with him. after that night i had a name through my head. it was... it was your name. in 1983 i knew you were born. it took me 10 years to find you. i became your shadow.
-i always felt i have been followed...
-never wanted to change you, to transform you. i had your smell in my blood. remember when you found bram stoker's book?
-yes. i found it in the metro station... did you?
-yes. i put it there. i was right behind you.
-why did you?
-i knew you are obsessed by death, and you didn't have any friends, just books... it was a nice way to show you that we are alive, and you're not alone. i love bram stoker... he was the only human that knew about us, without being killed. elizabeth was his other half...
-why didn't you want me to be transformed?
-because i didn't want you to be killed...
-so i'm your other half?
-do you feel i'm your other half?
-i don't know.
-i have to tell you something else...
-what?
-i was the one who kill iulia.
-i... i hate you!
-don't say that. just because i love you, doesn't mean i can't kill you!
-kill me. now. it's against our rules, you'd be punished.
-hahahaha, listen my love, i and elizabeth made those rules. i can kill or create who ever i want.
-why did you kill my mom?
-because she was a mistake. me and elizabeth tryed so hard to make her listen, but she always did what she want. she killed bram, and i bet she's responsable for elizabeth's death. i supposed to be with elizabeth, so she would have kill both of us, but it was the night i found you. so i wasn't there. i hunted and question every single one responsable for her death. a woman called ana, told me about a woman that came last night to her house, and told her and her husband, she'd kill her children if they don't burn our house. she described so well iulia's image. i know it was her.
-why didn't you kill her that night?
-she ran away. i didn't follow her, because i wanted to stay with you all the time... it was hard to stay in sunlight. i was exhausted, i didn't sleep for weeks. i managed to keep you alive ten more years, but when i finally got to the edge of my powers, i lost you... i lost your life. iulia knew about you, and she knew she will destroy me if she... if she changes you. it was one of our rules she stepped on "do not create if you won't save a life". and now... you won't be able to see another sunrise again... to finish your studies, or have a normal family...
-if you do love me, why do you want me to have a normal life?
-because our destiny is a curse.
