"RAY!" I hear my older sister Caroline shout at me. "Get your ass over to dad NOW!" She stumbles into my room, and walks over to me and Maple.
"Got yourself a weak one, huh?" Caroline is nice, when she wants to be.
"She's scared of me." I tell her, "I don't know what to do."
"Don't worry, everything will work out!" She reassures me, "Now come on. Dad wants all of us."
I walk down to the sitting room. Most of my brothers are already there. Everyone updates Father with what they've done. Then it's my turn.
"Maple is stable, still asleep, but she'll be alright when she wakes up." I don't mention the fact that she doens't even like me, unlike my brothers.
I walk back to my room, and there she is, standing strong against the bed. She is pale but looks healthy, sort of.
"Oh!" I say, "You're awake. How are you feeling?" I walk towards her but stop when she backs away.
"Who are you?" Maple asks, uncertain.
"I'm Ray. I...uh.. you.....um..you're a vampire now." I try to explain but trip over my words immediately.
"What do you mean?" She glares at me.
"I'm a vampire, and I had to change you. I'm so sorry. You didn't have a choice." I tell her unwillingly. "It was either this or you die."
"I'd have probably chosen this." I feel a weight lifted off my frozen heart, I sigh in relief and look into her eyes.
Suddenly, the room goes dark, and I hear Maple running out of the door behind me.
