“No, we are old until everybody we know die. Then we will give ourselves another life or at least that was the initial plan”, Nicolas said.
“You can never see everybody you know die, you always have to met other people”, I said still looking at the stone.
Nicolas might have caught my look because he closed the box and the attraction of the stone on me automatically disappeared. I started to breathe again.
“Now you know what this does?” Nicolas asked with a smile. I wasn’t too sure to know what it meant or what it was or what it actually did to me.
I stood up quickly.
“I need to go back to Transylvania”, I had said it really quickly. Perenelle and Nicolas looked at each other a bit concerned.
“You need to think about it carefully”, Nicolas said looking up at me and pulling his glass of warm cider closer.
But for me it was clear, of course I didn’t thought about it but the thought was turning in my head. But it wasn’t that I needed to go back to Transylvania really. It was more complex than that. It was Sorina, I needed to go back to her, I needed to see her face, to hear her laugh, to just look at her from far away to make sure that everything was alright, to pretend that there was nothing between us in front of the clan and to hold her as tight as if she was going to disappear any minute when I was alone with her. How did I forget that, how could I forget that? Her name was turning in my head, I couldn’t think about anything else, I couldn’t think clearly, I could only think about her with the feeling that something terrible had happened to us and was still happening to her but I didn’t know what and that was killing me.
“There is something I know and I can’t let it this way”, I said. I wanted to mention Sorina to yell my love for her, to make them understand that there was nothing wrong with it but as I started to speak I realized that it wasn’t Nicolas or Perenelle who needed to be told that. It was him, the vampire in my dream, the one who had condemned me to death for what? I couldn’t think about anything else than being in love with a human however stupid that might sound.
