Flora and Helia: A Vampire Love Story

3. A New Curse

Helia's POV

"Looks like Edward Cullen finally met his Bella." Riven teased me on our way to our dorms at RF.

"Dude, how many times do I have to tell you? DON'T CALL ME EDWARD CULLEN! He freaking sparkles in the sun for crying out loud." I said while glaring at him.

"Well you write poems and do art. What's the difference?" Riven said giving me a teasing grin. I give him a death glare.

"Dude, not cool." Sky scolded Riven. He just sighed rolled his eyes.

"Judging by the way Flora was blushing and stammering, I think she likes you." Brandon told me with a smirk. "You really think so?" I asked him.

"Yes, I never seen her act like that before." Brandon replied. I couldn't help but smile.

"Okay, Loverboy, we are our room now." Riven said breaking me out of my trance.

"Well see you guys tomorrow in class." Sky said while he and Brandon head to their room at the end of the hall.

"I'm going to video chat Tecna." Timmy said heading to the single bedroom of our dorm. Riven and I shared a bedroom. Him and Timmy used to share this dorm before I arrived.

"So are you going to stalk Flora again tonight?" Riven asked me while taking off his clothes and leaving his boxers on. Ugh, does this guy have any dignity? I thought. I know we're dudes but still.

"I'm not stalking. I'm just merely watching her sleep." I said offensively.

"Which is basically the same thing. And what are you doing?" He asked me while I'm getting my art supplies out. "Getting my sketchbook and pencils. I'm going to draw her sleeping." I replied putting them in my art satchel. "And that's not freaking creepy at all." Riven said sarcastically. I grab the bottom pillow from my bed and throw it at him aiming for his face. Unfortunately he caught it. "Dude we are not chicks and we are not going to do a pillow fight." He said annoyed. "Who said that we were going to?" I said while getting my satchel and heading out to Flora's balcony.

A few moments later….

Once again I'm watching the love of my life sleeping. Sitting in my usual spot which is her desk chair, I start to draw her. Since her back is to me I start to do that side first. I first do her hair. I love how her hair looks when she is sleeping. "Helia." My heart stops. Oh, crap, she knows I'm here. Now what? I thought worried. Then I realized her back is to me. As quietly as I could I walk around her bed to see if she's still asleep. Thank God she is. "Helia." she said again. Oh my God, she's saying my name in her sleep. Maybe she's dreaming about me. I thought excitedly. I sit down crossed legged and flipping my page I started to do her front side.

A few minutes later….

Whew, finally done. I guess I'll head back and get some sleep. Every month vampires sleep for a week for strength. But then we are good for the rest of the month. I get my satchel, blow her a kiss, and then fly out of the balcony doors.

Later at Red Fountain….

I'm asleep dreaming about Flora until I feet a itching sensation. I start scratching like crazy until I feet something furry. I gasp, shoot straight up and turn on my lamp. "Dude, I was sleeping…WHOA! WHAT THE HELL!?" Riven exclaimed getting out of bed.

"What is it?" I asked scared. He runs and get a mirror and show it to me. I have raven blue hair all over my face, and a snout with large teeth. But I still have my vampire teeth. And my eyes have a little amber in them. They usually turn red in vampire form. But now they are both. I look down at my hands and see fur on them, and my nails turn into claws. I get out of bed and look at my feet. They have fur and claws as well.

"I have to speak to my grandfather." I told Riven and hurry out of the room. "I'm coming with, dude." Riven replied and catch up to me.

In Saladin's office….

"It seems that the witch and the wizard who cursed as a vampire made you into a hybrid." Grandfather explained to me.

"WHAT?!" I exclaimed.

"I'm sorry my grandson. But they must try to get to me through you. I'm so sorry for this." Grandfather said looking really apologetic.

"Don't apologize. It isn't your fault. I'm just wondering how can Flora love me now." I said depressed.

"Dude are you kidding? Chicks dig werewolves, let alone hybrids." Riven said reassuringly.

"I don't know." I said still depressed.

"Well I heard a lot of girls like Klaus from the Vampire Diaries." He informed me.

"Yeah, but Flora's different, she is not like most girls." I said looking up at him. "Exactly, and unlike most girls, I doubt she cares about looks." He said with a smirk on his face.

"He is right, Helia, Flora is a sweet girl. I think she'll love you for who you are in the heart." My grandfather said surprising both at me and Riven. And I instantly blush at the thought of us talking about girls in front of my grandfather. "Thank you, Grandfather. We will be heading to bed now. Goodnight." I said while Riven and I stand up from our chairs. "You are welcome my grandson and goodnight to you also." Grandfather said while heading to his bedroom.
