I've always looked at my life as a great blessed nightmare. I look back on it and wonder whether or not I'm glad it was.
I suppose we could go back to when I was eight and got kicked out by my vampire father after my witch mom died, or even after I left the orphanage, when I turned fourteen. But all of that doesn't really interest me.
For starters, I should probably tell you my name, although it is also uninteresting. I am Lindsay Bellmoore, and this is my story. I was born in a town called Kimbershire, though that's likely to be viewed as irrelevant. I walked the streets at age fourteen, going to school, working, and living in a small apartment I payed for myself. Life would have been alright, but I was often chased by the creatures men call "werewolves". I was often forced to use my magic at a young age, only assisted by the wand my mother left me. But enough of all this whining.
One day, believe it or not, I was in the Kimbershire Public Library when I found a book. But this was a special book. "The Book Of Vampiric Knowledge: Everything You need To Know," I read aloud after removing the mountains of dust from the cover.
I went home and read vigorously, choking on bits of unbelievable information. The book said some amazing things like "Vampires shimmer in sunlight." That was a flat out lie. If you're full breed, you burn and if you're half breed you get sunburnt really easy. And worse "Vampires don't have fangs." We have fangs, they just don't protrude our mouths like walrus tusks! how much beauty can a creature sustain if they have huge tooth-like things jabbing out from their upper jaw?
The next year I was chocked full of information(I was able to sort out truths from lies) and I was ready to look for "The Caverns Of The Half-Bloods". Apparently this was a place where mix breeds could go if they were chased.
One night I set out as usual, for my evening search for the caverns. I looked out from the top of the tallest building in town, and saw only dark. I sat on the edge of the roof, letting my legs dangle. I saw a shadow in the light behind me, turned, and was pushed off by big, hairy arms.[like the cliffhanger? *taunts*]
