Deliaha wakes up with Vincents arm slung around her body and his other arm under her, wrapped in his warm loving embrace. She gently and slowly gets out of bed and heads towards the shower, right as the hot water touches her face, all her worries, fears and torments melt away. When she walks out and looks into the steamed mirror she sees her scar is gone and she is holding her head with a new type of strength and beauty. She looks over every inch of her face and settles on her eyes, the blue speckles seem to sparkle with desire and light and the violet is devestatingly breathtaking, the last time she was so amazed with those strange and glorious eyes was about 117 years ago. 117 years ago when she became a strong, powerful vampire, The night Vincent changed her. She laid on the moist grass outside the mansion where she was attending a grand ball. She had been so excited, this was her big night, the night she would be introduced into the social scene of balls, gowns, and wealth. She wore a deep red gown the covered all of her arms only revealing her delicate, small hands, with her neck completely exposed from the square low cut neckline of the dress. She wore modest face makeup and had her dark curls up in clips. She had been dancing and swaying all night, when a man in all black caught her eye, He had dark eyes but pale white skin and a defined strong body. She knew as a woman in society she would not approach this elegant man, but soon enough he was asking her for her hand to dance after dance. He whispered in her ear to follow him, she knew she should not have but he was so beautiful and charming, she was under his spell. He lead her to the yard where he slowly made his way to her heart with his flatterly and soulful deep eyes. He leaned in to kiss her, she closed her eyes waiting what felt like ages, finally his lips met her, they were cold as ice but soft as pillows and inviting. He slowly pulled away, and looked into her eyes, his expression softened and she saw his mood lighten, when she looked into his eyes and saw desire and lust, but also passion and need. He leaned in once again for a kiss and this time when their lips met his were more desperate as if he needed hers, he trailed down her cheek to her neck slowly kissing up and down her veins, her heart was racing, she could hear it in her ears, then she felt a sharp pinch and all of a sudden she became weak and lost her footing. He quickly, without looking up, scooped her up held her, she was terrified, but in her mind she could hear a voice telling her she was safe, his voice, telling her he would not hurt her, She tried to fight, she shrieked and sqriumed, but after a couple minutes she had no power to move. Then he stopped and laid her on the moist grass, he looked into her eyes, he had slattering of red in his dark eyes around his pupil, his eyes were so alluring she could not look away, this was all she saw. Then she felt dizzy and light-headed, she tried to sit up but it was as if her muscles would not listen, colder with every minute, she started shivering and shaking. What was happening to her? What had he done to her? The next moment She was against him he was looking down at her in concern, he was whispering something she could not hear, but she thought she saw his lip mouth im sorry and please forgive me, it will be over soon. Colder and colder into a freezing abyss, her eyes rolled to the back of her head and she shook violently, then it stopped the pain-staking cold was replaced with a new pain, a burning pain but not in her body in her throat. She couldn't breathe, she couldn't think, hear, or talk, she was so thristy she knew excatly what she needed but would not let herself say it. How could a beautiful young woman want a cruel disgusting substance, no matter how she felt about it she needed it and was lusting over it, it felt as if her life dependent on it. With every minute it got worse and worse the pain was horrible, then two sharp pricks slide from her gums, Canines, she had fangs like an animal, thats when she knew she was no longer human, she was something of a whole different kind. Vincent took his sharp tooth and ran it across his wrist drawing a sweet smelling liquid that dripped from his light skin,he lifted her head to his wrist and she drank and drank, it felt amazing, she drank until she felt she was stuffed beyond belief. When she finally could move her body she sat up and saw a world she never saw before, colors were more vivid, smells more distintive, and she could hear almost everything moving around her. She caught a glimpse in a nearby window and thats when she saw her eyes, the eyes that could stop anyone in their tracks, and that were so strange even she could not believe what she could control with a glance, she always had dangerously beautiful eyes but now they shone like moonlight. She saw a girl that was ravenousing she did not even recongize herself, Vincent looked at her with worry and compassion, she gave him a smile to tell him she was ok, and she was enjoying this change of life so far, his eyes grew happier and he spoke only two words, He said You're Beautiful.
