Carpe Noctum > Wilderness :: River :: > Dumped and Left There

Dumped and Left There - Posted By Alyssa Phoenix (alyssa) on 4th Jun 12 at 5:18am
Alyssa was already weak enough, but no, she had been bled out and dumped in the wilderness near a town called Carpe Noctum. The last words she had heard were, 'I hope you get eaten by a bear while your lifeless body hopelessly lays there, putrid woman, a waste of space you were..or rather, you still are.' Then she went into a deep sleep for an unknown amount of time before opening her eyes again. Alyssa felt numb, entirely numb, and when she attempted to move her abnormally pale body, she whimpered a bit due to the intense pain. She was finding it hard to breathe, and there was a spot of sun that shone right into her eyes. Alyssa's face would be green if it weren't for the dried blood and dirt smears. Everything hurt. Alyssa had been hoping that she would just die from blood loss, but apparently that wasn't enough to kill her quickly. The last sentence that she had heard kept repeating through her head. Had she really been just, thrown out? After all of that begging from that evil vampire guy, he just, moved on. It was the only thing that made the slightest bit of sense.

Leona had started to patrol earlier than she usually did. Ever since the Duboir twins had started to mess with her mind it had been hard to sleep and she didn't like that Javier used his ability on her to alter her dreams. She knew how it affected him. But the last week she hadn't felt anything and even though it was nice to not have someone roam around in your heads then knowing that they were out there it just unnerved her.

Leona had decided to take a round in wilderness. The forest had been fairly quiet so reaching the lake she followed it until she reached the out spring of the river and followed it. She had walked far before she noticed a figure lie by the river. Picking up the pace she was soon by the woman's side. Leona knelt down and placed a hand on the woman's forehead. She looked around as if to if anyone was around before she turned her attention back to the woman. "Can you hear me?" she asked as she looked down to the woman. Leona had to get the woman some blood, but she felt more secure of doing so back at the chateau.

Even though she had her eyes closed, she could only just sense that somebody had approached her. Then she heard the voice. She hated the fact that somebody had managed to find her, but at the same time, she was thankful.
Taking a moment to respond, she slowly opened her eyes, having to squint from the brightness. Alyssa swallowed before opening her mouth and replying, "Yes." with the huskiest voice there could be. She couldn't help but let a tear roll down the side of her face. Alyssa might as well already be a carcass that had been sitting in the sun and starting to decay, because she certainly felt like she was wasting away.

Leona bit her lower lip as she thought what the best solution would be. She grabbed her cell phone and called Jake and asked him to come and pick her up by the bridge and after she had hung up she looked down to the woman. "Don't worry, you're safe now," she said as she kept her gaze on the fragile vampire. "Now let's see if we can't get you moved," she said and as careful as possible lifted the woman up in her arms and started to head towards the river bridge. Of course Leona could have started to roam around in the woman's brain to figure out what had happened, but the last thing the woman needed was someone picking her brain, especially in the state she was in.

Being lifted up off the ground, it hurt quite a bit, but not for long thankfully. Once she was being carried the pain pretty much faded. Alyssa wasn't even sure if she wanted to be saved, but she didn't have the energy to even think about that at the moment. All she could think about was how much she wasn't wanted any more, and how she was just chucked away. This was so hurtful, and she couldn't get it out of her head. All that time she had been locked up in that dark room of hers, she had thought that it would be amazing to get outside again, and here she was, but now it has turned out to not be so exciting as she had thought it would be. At least she was out of the direct sunlight now.

Reaching the bridge that went over the river, she could see Jake had already arrived. "Help me with her," she said and with Jake's help they got the woman into the back of the landrover. Leona took a seat in the back too and let Jake do the driving. "Don't worry you'll be in a comfortable bed soon and some food in you," Leona found her cell again and this time typed a message back to the chateau to have a large supply of human and animal blood. She knew that she needes something in the woman or she would never get better. Leona thought that maybe a mix of human and animal would do the trick. The human would make her get better while the animal would do the last work of getting her fed up.

Of course, she had no idea who these people were and where they were taking her, but apparently she was going to be laying in bed pretty soon. Alyssa also heard something about food. By food, she hoped that she didn't mean blood, because she hated it, regardless whether or not she needed it to stay alive. Since the woman was a vampire, Alyssa just guessed that she did mean blood. Maybe her cravings would cause her to give in and she would just have to drink the blood. In fact, she was going to have to do so any way, since there was no way that she could communicate properly or move anywhere that she needed to go without becoming healthy again.

There weren't conversed many words between Jake and Leona as he drove back to the chateau. Checking the mirror every now and again to see how the stranger was doing. He had only seen Leona look like that and that hadn't been a pretty sight. Reaching the chateau, he stopped the engine and headed for the back where he lifted the woman out of the car. "Where do you want her, Lea?" he asked as he started to climb the stairs up to the front door where the butler opened it so he could walk into the massive entrance hall. He figured that Leona probably wanted to put the woman in a room in the Lémón wing that way the Head Bellator would be close to the woman.

Leona followed Jake as he headed inside with the woman. "Bring her to the third floor in the Lémón wing," she said and faced the butler. "Do you have everything?" Leona asked the butler who nodded. "Yes Ma'am, everything is up in the guest room," the butler said and made a slight bow. Leona nodded and followed after Jake.

Reaching the room, she opened the door for Jake and watched him place the woman on the bed. "You can leave. Tell Jaja that I don't want to be disturbed," she said and Jake nodded before he left the room, closing the door after him. Leona looked into a cooling box and took a blood bag out. She mixed some animal and human blood in a cup and took a seat next to the woman and placed an arm behind the woman's neck and helped her up a little as Leona held the cup up to the woman's lips. "Drink up, it will make you feel better," she said.

Re: Dumped and Left There - Posted By Alyssa Phoenix (alyssa) on 7th Jun 12 at 7:28am
When she was taken out of the car and brought inside and placed on a bed, once again, it was painful for a moment, but then it was okay. Then when her head was lifted up a bit and a cup with blood in it was lifted to her lips, she attempted to scoff, though, she failed and just tried looking down at the red substance. Alyssa didn't want it, but her body was telling her otherwise. Right now, she couldn't afford to just resist what this woman was doing for her, so she slowly decided to take sip, though she cringed before taking in a bit more. She then sniffled a bit. "I don't want to be a vampire.." Alyssa admitted with a very quiet and upset voice.

Leona looked to the woman when she heard what the stranger said. "I know, but you learn to live with it," she said and held the cup up to the woman's lips again so she could drink some more. "But just because you're a vampire, doesn't mean you're a bad person. It depends on the things you do," Leona said.

She herself didn't want to become a vampire, at least not the way that she did. Of course she had thought about it after she met Javier, but she wanted him to turn her, not Lestat. Right from the start she had defied her Sire, refusing to feed on human blood, it hadn't been easy, but the stubbornness she possessed had helped her through it.

Re: Dumped and Left There - Posted By Alyssa Phoenix (alyssa) on 7th Jun 12 at 9:25am
She managed to shake her head. "No, you don't understand." She said, even though she wasn't sure whether or not those were the right words to use. "I've been a vampire for a long time.. And I still haven't gotten used to it. I hate it, I hate drinking blood." She admits, her voice becoming louder as she speaks. Then a few tears fell down her cheeks. All of this had been too much. Being kept in a dark room for 16 years, drinking the slightest bit of blood once a week, if that. And every time that stupid vampire guy Petruchio tried to coax her into loving him, she would refuse each and every time. She'd rather die that be with him.

Leona felt sorry for the woman, but she wasn't about to ask a lot of questions, instead she shushed a little as the woman raised her voice a little. "I know, it took me centuries before I came to terms with it," she said and now pressed the cup against the woman's lips. "Now drink, it will make you feel better. Then we can move over to strictly animal blood," Leona said, if the woman wouldn't feed then Leona would force it in her, one thing was for sure, the woman get any better if she didn't get some blood in her.

Hopefully when the woman had been stocked up on blood and got some sleep, it could be easier to talk to the woman. Who her Sire was, what had happened to her and most importantly who her name was. "I'm Leona by the way. What's yours?" she asked in a calm voice.

It made her feel ever so slightly better knowing that she wasn't the only one who had trouble for so long just dealing with the fact that they were a vampire. She had felt so alone with all this.
When she was told to drink the blood, she knew she had to, she was just being stubborn. But right now, she decided to just drink it. With each sip becoming larger than the other, she soon finished the cup of blood, cringing once again at the after-taste. She looked up to the woman before letting out a sigh. "Alyssa." She says with droopy eyes. "Thank you, Leona."

Hearing the woman's name, she gave Alyssa a smile, when she looked up at her. It wasn't often Leona smiled, but when she did, she usually meant it. "Why don't you get some sleep, and then you can have some more blood when you wake up," she said as she put Alyssa's head back on her pillow and pulled the covers over her after she had placed the cup on the night stand. She took a seat on the edge of the bed and looked at the woman. Even though she was still looking rather transparent, then it wasn't as bad as when Leona had found her. But she knew that they had to take the blood in small steps. "Do you want me to stay, otherwise I can leave and give you a little bit of peace," she asked, as her eyes not once left the fragile woman.

It also made her feel better when Leona smiled at her, since she hadn't seen a smile for, a very long time, not a friendly one anyway. When she was asked if she wanted her to stay, she had to think for a moment. Alyssa didn't want to keep her from anything, nor did she want to be left alone. She didn't think that she would cope so well if she watched Leona leave the room, then again, she had gotten used to being alone constantly, but now that she wasn't, she would probably feel bad if she was left alone again. "O-only, if you don't have anything to do.." She said with grateful, yet still sad eyes.

Leona gave Alyssa another smile. "Hey I am the boss around here, so I can do what I want," she said with a like chuckle. She knew that little Liora was in safe hands with Javier and Jake would make sure that anything regard the bellators would be taken care of. It was no secret that over the last couple of years he had more and more turned into a substitute when she wasn't around. "Now why don't you try and get some sleep," he said and moved a chair closer to the bed and took a seat. Heck she just might try and catch an hour herself if she could. "I'll just sit here," she said, crossing one leg over the other and folded her hands neatly in her lap.

Alyssa only just smiled when Leona said that she was the boss around this place. She took her advice for getting some rest, she really needed it. Alyssa was aware that Leona had sat down in a chair nearby before she closed her eyes, and they would stay closed for quite some time.

Some large fraction of time had passed before she woke up with a bit of a yelp. Alyssa had experienced an extremely unpleasant dream, which of course, involved Petruchio. Sweat had built up on her forehead, and her eyes stung a bit from the sweat that had managed to make it's way into her eyes.

Leona had been napping a little, but woke up after a little while. So while Alyssa slept, she moved over to the window and glanced out between the curtains. When Alyssa finally woke up, it was starting to get dark outside. Leona moved back to the bed and took a seat on the edge. She grabbed a cloth and dipped it in some water before she started to wipe away the sweat from Alyssa's face. "How are you feeling?" she asked and looked concerned at the young vampire. Leona had had some time to think things through, would she have been like this if she had stayed with Lestat back then....Who knew, after all he had beaten her, the stuff he had done to her in those two years, she was just glad that Javier hadn't been around her while she had sat in the window and looked out. He would have know right away something had been wrong. She had tried so hard to push those years behind her, but now seeing this woman it was like all the bad memories returned.

Alyssa shivered a bit before looking up to Leona, who was wiping away a bit of the sweat on her forehead. "I feel a little ill.." She admitted with still tired and droopy eyes. Of course, Leona was a vampire, like herself, but Alyssa wanted to know why she was going to the effort to helping her. "Why are you looking after me so well?" She asked. "I don't even have a reason to live.." She adds on. Though, she did have a reason to live, it just didn't occur to her. Alyssa had no idea where her daughter was or what has happened for the past 16 years, and she wasn't thinking straight, because her daughter was very much still alive.

Leona briefly paused what she was doing when Alyssa asked why she was doing all this, before Leona finished up what she was doing, not answering right away. After she had put away the cloth, she turned her attention back to Alyssa. "You do have something to live for, you just might haven't found it yet.....I had my twin brother and now, I have my family....My husband and children. This town," she said and looked down to her hands that she rested in her lap, looking thoughtful. "I didn't want this life, at least not in the way that it happened. When my Sire turned me it was to turn me into his bride, he turned my brother too. It was easier to influence my brother, he turned into the perfect killer, where as me.....I refused to do what my Sire wanted me to do. He beat me up until I broke, but there was two things he couldn't break....the relation between me and my brother and then feeding. I swore from the start that I would never touch a drip of human blood. I didn't eat the first couple of days, but in the end I managed to sneak out and found an animal.....When I found out that I could live of animal blood, I knew that I didn't need my Sire," Leona said and looked back at Alyssa, it wasn't often she told about her past, about how she was turned, but Alyssa's story reminded her so much of what Leona went through. "And seeing what my Sire did to my brother, I knew I had to get us both away from him. I didn't want to see my brother ruined forever. I was lucky, I managed to find someone close to Lestat who helped us. I managed to go through two years of hell before I escaped with my brother.....Of course we ended up on the run for centuries after that, but.....," she said and paused, looking down to her hands again. It was clear that it was hard for her to talk about this and the ghosts of the past washing over her. "If it had been me who had ended up like you, I would have wanted someone to help me and it could just as well have been, if I hadn't managed to escape from my Sire," she said and looked back at Alyssa.

Even after Leona and Leo had escaped from Lestat, she had had a hard time, coming to terms with who she was. And to top it all, she always had to stay two steps ahead of her Sire. It hadn't been easy, but the last four years after the Bodouar twins had been killed, it was like she finally could put that part of her behind her. She had a wonderful husband, sure they could be like cat and dog at times, but he kept sticking around, supporting her, being there for her whenever she needed it. And then she had five wonderful children. She lived a privileged life and she knew it, but she also knew that the Alliance was still out there, but she was better at taking one day at the time.

Her gaze moved to the cooler where the blood was stored. "You should have some more blood in you. This time let's settle with animal," she said and got up from the bed and moved over to the cooler where she poured some animal blood into a cup. Taking both bottle and cup with her back to the bed and took a seat on the bed, so she could help Alyssa if needed.

Re: Dumped and Left There - Posted By Alyssa Phoenix (alyssa) on 8th Jun 12 at 1:54pm
Alyssa listened as Leona started to tell her story, which by the way, sounded so very similar to hers. So of course, she felt as though she had some sort of connection with Leona. In fact, her story inspired her and motivated her to not give up now. "I'm sorry you had to go through that." She says, running through Leona's story in her mind. Although both of their stories were similar, Leona's sounded much more painful. When Leona said that she needed more blood, this time just animal, Alyssa slightly nodded before looking at the cup and slowly taking it from her. "Thank you." She says before drinking a bit of the blood. She couldn't help but think of the poor animal that died for the blood, whatever animal is was. Alyssa once again cringed a bit, but before 3 minutes was up, she had finished the blood.

Leona simply sent her a sad smile, when Alyssa said she was sorry for what Leona had been through. "I would probably had ended up as a vampire in one way or another. My husband worked for my Sire at the time and he was sent to get close to me. We ended up falling in love and I did consider the idea of being turned, but I wanted him to do it when I was ready for it and not forced into it and by a completely different man, who I didn't love," she said, but she didn't feel like it was the time or the place to talk about how she met her husband, wasn't really relevant right now.

As Alyssa finished her blood. Leona took the cup and filled it up before she handed it over to Alyssa again. "Drink as much as you can, the more you get in, the faster it'll take for you to get back on your feet," she said. Tilting her head a little she studied the woman. "Are you from around here, I mean do you have any family or friends living here in Carpe Noctum?" she asked curiously. Not that she wanted to pry, but if Alyssa had any loved ones, then they should know she was still alive, sort of.

Alyssa nodded sympathetically in response to Leona before she took the cup that had been re-filled. Before she decided to lift the cup of blood to her mouth, she looked up at Leona and responded first. "I.. No, I don't think I do.." She says with a tired voice. "So, this place is called Carpe Noctum.." Alyssa let out a sigh. Then it had just occurred to her, that maybe her daughter was still alive, and her partner, just maybe. "Well, I have a daughter and a partner, but, that was 16 years ago.. I wouldn't have a clue where they are now." She admits before drinking some of the blood and poking her tongue out a bit at the big swig she had just had.

Leona observed Alyssa for a second. "Well I can help you find them, the guy who picked us up and carried you in here can find anyone, all he needs is a name," she said and sent Alyssa a reassuring smile. "So give me as many information about your daughter and I'm sure Jake will be able to track her down," she said. How he did it, she wasn't hundred percent sure of, but over the years Jake had gotten contacts everywhere.

As soon Alyssa had finished her second cup, Leona filled it again, she wanted as much blood into the woman and it was unbelievable the transformation there was. When she had first found her, Alyssa's skin had been grey and transparent, now it was starting to get a nicer pale tone, but there was till a long way to go, but with a strict diet she was sure she could have Alyssa back on her feet before long.

Alyssa paused and looked down for a moment when Leona mentioned that she could help with finding her daughter and partner. "Uh..I..well, her name should be Meghan Phoenix, but she might have changed her last name by now. She should be around the age of..twenty." Alyssa said, running a bit short of breath. In some way, she didn't want to find her partner, because he had probably gotten over her and moved on, enjoying his life with somebody else. She tried not to think about it, but she would have to prepare to be heart broken. Alyssa then took the cup once again as it was refilled, but she didn't start drinking the contents immediately.

Leona nodded and memorized the name. "I will have Jake look into it," she said and gave Alyssa a smile. "What about I drew you a bath, then you could finish up that cup. Maybe some clean clothes. I'm sure there is something of mine you can fit," she said and got up from the bed and heading for a door that lead to a bathroom.

When she opened the door she moved over to the bathtub and plugged it before she turned on the hot water and put some soothing bubbles into the water. She even found some towels from a small cabinet in the bedroom and carried them back to the bathroom. When she returned to the side of Alyssa's bed, the bath was ready. "Think you can walk or do you want my help?" she asked. Leona hoped that Alyssa could at least stand on her own two feet, but if not, then Leona was still a vampire, so she should be able to help Alyssa to the bathroom with no problems.

Alyssa managed to smile up at Leona thankfully when she said that she would tell Jake to look into it. She then nodded when Leona said that she could finish the drink as she prepared a bath for her. Alyssa was a little overwhelmed at how nice the woman was being, since she had just gone from people hating her and beating and leaving her for death, to a wonderful person's house and being cared for the best she could possibly be cared for. For a little while, Alyssa had been thinking that she was dreaming, but she had realised that she wasn't.
After finishing the cup of blood, she looked to Leona who had returned to the room having prepared the bath for her. Alyssa instantly replied, "I think I can walk." She said before slowly using her elbows to push herself up a bit, then moved her legs over the side of the bed. Alyssa still felt a little numb, but she was certain that she could manage. She sat on the side of the bed for a moment before shifting all her weight to her feet, being careful, she stopped for a moment before slowly shuffling her way in the direction of the bathroom.

Leona walked right next to Alyssa ready to grab her if she suddenly would loose balance. "While you're in the tub, I'll go and find some clean clothes for you," she said as they reached the bathroom. "Think you can manage on your own or do you need some help? There are towels there," she said and pointed to some fluffy blue towels.

It wasn't often Leona paid this much attention to a complete stranger, but maybe it was because she recognized more of herself in the woman than she cared to admit. Sure she might seem as cold and distant to most people, and sure she could perhaps appear as arrogant too, but when that was said then underneath it all she was compassionate and helpful. All the other was just a façade she put up so she wouldn't get hurt. This had meant she had very few close friends, she had trusted the wrong people over the years and that had toughened her up.

As she reached the bathroom, she held onto the door frame for a moment before looking to Leona when she spoke. "Thank you, so much." She began quietly. "I can manage." She smiled softly. Then she shuffled over to the mirror after she had closed the door behind her. Alyssa hadn't seen her face ever since she had been taken, and in her current state, she let out a small sob, then looked away so that she could focus on removing her very old clothes. With that, she managed to hop into the bath, and although she gasped a bit at how warm the water was, she immediately settled into it. Alyssa just sat there for a few minutes. She hadn't felt warm water like this for 16 years.
After a few moments of sitting there, she started to wash her face, and her hair.

While Alyssa took a bath, Leona left the bedroom and walked down the hallway to her own, heading for her closet to find some clothes. Even though Leona was taller than Alyssa, then she was sure she could find something comfortable. She found a t-shirt, a hooded sweater she barely wore and a pair of jeans. And after a little while she left her bedroom and headed back to Alyssa's room. "I found some clothes for you," she said out loud so Alyssa could hear her. She placed the clothes on a chair before she started to changed the sheets on the bed, so there was fresh linen on.

Leona was starting to think if Alyssa might want something else than just blood, but actual food. Moving over to the door she leaned up against the door frame. "If you want human food I can have something sent up," she said through the door. Sure it wouldn't exactly stop hunger, but it could be a nice change from the blood, especially if Alyssa wasn't so fond of it.

Just as Alyssa rubbed her eyes clear of water, she heard Leona's voice sound from the bedroom, saying that she had found some clothes for her to wear. "Thank you." She called out as loud as she could, which wasn't very loud, but it was loud enough for Leona to hear. After she had rinsed out her hair and was satisfied with her cleanliness, Alyssa carefully hopped out of the bath and pulled the plug. The water looked pretty dirty as it went down the drain. When she grabbed the towel and attempted to dry her hair, she cringed a bit due to a bit of pain from using those particular muscles in her arms. Then when Leona asked her if she wanted human food, Alyssa paused for a moment before realising that she also hadn't had real food for a very long time. "Yes. Yes please." She answered, and then continued to dry her hair slowly. After that, she managed to wrap the towel around her and open the bathroom door to see the clothes on the chair.

Leona briefly left the room to go down to the kitchen where she talked to the chef and he reassured her that he would have some food sent up to Alyssa's room. While she was downstairs she managed to find Jake and told him to look up a Meghan Phoenix before she returned to Alyssa's room. Entering the room she gave the young woman a smile. "The food will be sent up when it's finished," she said, moving over to the window and looked out for a second before she took a seat on the window seat. "Hope you can use the clothes, figured it would be nice with some comfortable clothes. When you're up for it, we can go shopping," she said with a soft smile on her face before she turned her attention to the window and peaked out of the window.

Alyssa nodded at Leona when she said that the food will be sent up when it is finished. With that, she sent a smile towards her once again. "Thank you." She then walked back into the bathroom to get dressed. After a few minutes, she walked back into the bedroom and sat down on the edge of the bed, feeling a little drowsy from standing up. Alyssa had to roll up the bottom of the jeans a bit due to the length of her legs. She let out a sigh before laying back on the bed, her legs still hanging over the edge. "Thank you so much.. for being so kind to me." She said to the air up above.

Leona turned her gaze back to Alyssa, shrugging her shoulders a little, even though Alyssa couldn't see it. "Don't mention it," she said and went quiet for a second. Sure she could pick Alyssa's brain for these kind of informations, but she liked the woman from what she could sense there wasn't a bad bone in the woman's body. "Care you tell me who did this to you?" she asked curiously. But she would understand if Alyssa wasn't interested in sharing, but it was Leona's job to protect people and clearly the vampire who had done this to her was not one of the good ones.

Being the Head Bellator, Leona saw it as her mission to keep tap on any potential threats. She was in the belief that vampires could live like normal people, without killing, but as with any other race, vampires weren't flawless, there were bad apples and Leona would fight to the end to get those removed.

When she was asked who had done this to her, she stared up at the ceiling before opening her mouth to answer. "I..I actually don't know. All I know is that his name is Petruchio, and though I could tell that where I was being held was in some sort of fort or small castle of some sort, I have no clue where it might be. But there are a fair few people there, or rather, vampires living there. Throughout my whole time there.." She gulped for a moment, then continued. "I have only been kept in the same room, and occasionally been taken through the hallway to visit Petruchio. And all he was trying to get me to do, was love him, I don't see why he felt the need to do all of this, to me." Alyssa said, her tone of voice starting to sound upset. "And then, he just threw me away like nothing ever happened. What do you even call that?"

Leona listened to Alyssa quietly, but as she did so. Memories of her time with Lestat popped into her head again. "A man who doesn't know what love is. My Sire turned me because he wanted me, mate with me, but when he turned me, I already belonged to someone else. I had imprinted with another vampire, so Lestat didn't have the same control over me, I suppose that was what saved me in the end, gave me the chance to run away," she said quietly. Just then a knock sounded on the door and shortly after a maid entered with a tray. A couple of sandwiches on a plate, a cup of tea, a glass of milk and various fruit had been placed on the tray. The maid moved over to a table and placed the tray there before she curtsied and left the room. "Hope you can use the food, the only reason why we eat is in order to have some sort of family life otherwise we would barely see the kids," she said with a slight smile on her face.

Re: Dumped and Left There - Posted By Alyssa Phoenix (alyssa) on 19th Jun 12 at 11:56am
Alyssa listened to what Leona had to say. It sounded pretty damn similar to what had happened to her. She was going to reply, but she didn't know what to reply with, and before she could speak, the food arrived in the room. Alyssa sat up slowly and looked to the maid who had just delivered the food. She eyed the sandwiches and fruit and tea on the plate as if it were gold. Alyssa wasted no time with moving over to the table to start eating one of the sandwiches and gasping due to the taste of real food. At the moment, Alyssa wasn't concerned if she was coming across as gross for eating so fast, she just wanted to eat it all. But before she picked up the other sandwich, she looked to Leona. "Would you like this one?" She gestured to the sandwich, still working on a bit off food that was in her mouth.

Leona chuckled a little when Alyssa asked if she wanted one of the sandwiches. She shook her head. "No thanks. And you might slow down a bit or you'll just get the hiccough," she said with a chuckle, but it was nice to see that Alyssa had a good appetite. "I don't eat that much human food, it's mainly animal blood I have," she said with a slight smile. She herself was on a strict diet, she needed to have blood on a certain interval or she would get cranky and a cranky Leona was never a good thing. Besides she had managed to take a glass of blood while she had been in the kitchen, so she was all good. No all the food was for Alyssa or at least as much as she could eat. It was Leona's way of cheering Alyssa up.

Re: Dumped and Left There - Posted By Alyssa Phoenix (alyssa) on 19th Jun 12 at 12:25pm
Alyssa smiled at Leona, she was feeling so much better than she did before, and in such a short amount of time too. "I guess, once I get used to blood, if I ever do, I might eat human food less regularly." Alyssa admitted. Nothing can ever quite replace the taste of human food for her, in fact, she still wanted to class herself as a human, because there was no way she'd allow herself to behave like a blood craving demon. Okay, maybe that was a little too harsh, but she was going to try and act as human as possible. She wanted to return to the good old says where she was casting spells and teaching her daughter and practically loving life. Having been treated so well by Leona, it had taught her that not all vampires are terrible, but where she had been kept all locked up, all of the vampires were terrifying.

Leona gave Alyssa a smile. "Well it's up to you, but you still need to drink the blood, it's the only thing that'll keep you going. However human food can just be a way to have some pleasures in life. Just because you are a vampire, doesn't mean you have to be a monster," she said with a soft smile as if she had read the woman's mind. "Everyone in this house a vegans so to speak, we live only on animal blood," she said, okay she knew the Head Lady did drink human from time to time, but it wasn't in Leona's place to dictate how the Head Lady should live, but as long it wasn't done under her roof then she would be okay with it and that Lenard wouldn't be tempted to fall back into his old habits. "Just take your time. You can stay here until you're back on your feet, well more than you are now. We've got plenty of space," she said. It was a large estate and they had plenty of rooms, sure there lived a lot of people under the same roof, but that didn't make it crowded around the place.

Re: Dumped and Left There - Posted By Alyssa Phoenix (alyssa) on 19th Jun 12 at 1:23pm
Alyssa did feel a little sad when Leona pointed out the fact that she would need to keep drinking blood to keep going, but there was nothing she could do about it, and she was going to have to deal with it. But Alyssa hated the fact that the vampire, Petruchio, had forced her to become this. She then looked over to Leona before swallowing a mouthful of food and nodding. "Alright." She said. "I appreciate your help." Alyssa admitted. Who wouldn't appreciate being rescued and looked after like she had been? "I just..I think I feel hate, towards the vampire race, not you, of course, but, to the others, what they did. To all of the bad people.. I don't want to hate, but I do." She admitted at random.
