The Ballad of the Damned Chapters 12 and 13Chapter 12: Good Night (The End?)
The town's people immediately tie me to a cross made of oak and drenched in Holy Water, the likes of which are also burning me. I look around, and to my right side, tied up just as I am, my love. They, apparently, took any lively looking corpses to be safe. They, then, thrust stakes into our hearts. Then, they leave us until the sun comes up. I'm dying
"I'll be with you soon, my love."
It is quiet for a moment then, I hear her voice say,
"You already are with me, my love."
Chapter 13: The True End
Soon, the darkness bursts into light. My lover and I both let out cries of pain. With sun rise, we have burst into flames.
"At last an end to this Hell," I say with my last breathe.
No More Suffering. Eternal Love and Peace.
The Ballad of the Damned Chapter 11Chapter 11: Death Is Your New Lover
I must resist the urge to feed. Why is this so difficult? I'm not going to take this for much longer. I just can't the hunger the pain it's all unbearable.
"You know what? If I can't beat it, I should welcome it. Death is my lover now. I am what I am!"
I wandered into back into the town. Soul intent to kill and feed. I break down a door at the first house I see. After entering, I kill and feed upon all of the residents. Men. Women. Elderly. Children. I don't care. I killed and fed on them all. My hunger still wasn't satisfied. I do the same to the next house. And the next, and the next and so on.
Now nearly dawn, the town is almost completely demolished. As I lick the last drop of blood off of my lips, I find I'm surrounded.
The Ballad of the Damned Chapter 10Chapter 10: Outcast
I just need to get away I just need to figure out what to do I take a stroll through the woods. I think of my next move the entire time I do so. Unfortunately, barely and hour into my stroll, the hunger and blood lust return this time harder to control. The sheer sight of nothing to attack is the only thing keeping me at bay I'm not going to take much more of this
The Ballad of the Damned Chapter 9Chapter 9: Dark Romance
I left her body on the grave of her love and, then, walked over to the site of mine. I fall to my knees and begin to weep.
"Why did you do this to me ?" I asked into the darkness, "I-I can't stand it anymore I cannot stand waking at dusk and sleeping at dawn "
As you sleep in your tomb, I am tortured
"My love I will see you again some day. I promise."
Then, the wind blew and rustled the leaves. And in the wind I could have sworn I heard a voice say,
"You had better hurry. I am waiting, my love."
Once the leaves stopped blowing, I looked around. No one must have been my imagination
The Ballad of the Damned Chapter 8Chapter 8: Blood Lust
I walk into a nearby town. The moon is bright and the sky is dark. I find a man passed out in a gutter. I'd use him to satiate my palate but, his inebriated blood wouldn't be of much sustenance. Luckily, though, a young maiden walks toward the cemetery. Probably to visit a passed, loved one alone but, I couldn't care less. All I knew was I needed nourishment and, would obtain it by any means necessary. I followed her, lurking in the shadows. When she knelt down in front of her former love's grave site she uttered,
"I would give anything to be with you again, my love."
I took that as my cue. I jumped out of the shadows and appeared beside her.
"Anything, you say?" I ask her.
She let out a frightened yell and then muffled her mouth with her hands. She nodded yes to my question.
"Well, I can help you with that."
"How so?" she inquired.
"Do you really want to
The Ballad of the Damned Chapter 7Chapter 7: Forsaken
It's finally over. She is now peaceful but, what of me? She had bitten me after all. Am I one of those beasts now? The point was to rid me of my problems and all they did was get worse! Damn it!
"God, why have you forsaken me?"
I fall to my knees in front of my former love's grave sit. I wish I hadn't killed her if I'm going to be undead I'd at least want to be undead with her. My love. That monster. I knew this change wouldn't be without some consequence. I, now, hunger for blood. But, first, I will rebury my love. I still retain respect for the dead.
The Ballad of the Damned Chapter 6Chapter 6: Unholy Kiss
What the hell am I saying? She's a monster. That's not my lover but it's so hard to resist.
"Now, my love. Kiss me," she says with a seductive tone.
I kiss her, as to her demand. It feels so good to kiss her once again despite everything. It could have lasted forever but, I felt her lips start to pull away. I feel a sharp pain in my throat, but don't even realize what is going on. The minute it hit me, I took the stake and thrust it into her heart.
"Why?!" she yelled with a screech.
"You aren't my lover. My lover died. You are just a monster in her flesh."
She, then, fell to the ground dead. Dead for good.
Now, with all silent, I fell strange
The Ballad of the Damned Chapter 5Chapter 5: The Grotesque Beauty
To that voice, chills ran up my spine. I couldn't move. I couldn't scream. I could barely breathe I was completely terrified. Then, she passed right through me and turned to look me in the eyes. As I looked into her eyes and she looked into mine, I was astounded by her beauty. I was falling in love with her all over again, despite knowing how demonic a being she is. She wasn't making it any easier either. She came up very close to me. Her movements were so graceful. Once up close, she whispered into my ear in such a sweet voice,
"My love, join me. Be with me for eternity."
With that she kissed me deeply. I stood silent for a long while. She, then, said,
"What's the matter my love? Don't you love me? Don't you want to be with me in eternity?"
I, again, stood silently. After a m
The Ballad of the Damned Chapters 3 and 4Chapter 3: Purify
I've finally decided to kill the demon, formerly my lover. I must stop this abomination before it gets out and does even more damage. In the last month, about when I started seeing her again, there were over thirty deaths reported could she have been the cause? There's no question. She is the cause and she needs to be purified. This dawn, I go to kill her. Kill her as soon as she returns to her grave.
With it now being, midnight, I await the dawn. Upon her return, I shall thrust the stake into her heart and sever her head. I hope I remain focused for I have not been able to sleep for the past month. I can feel it taking its toll on me no I mustn't fall asleep I must end this tonight!...
Chapter 4: Searching for a Shadow
Damn I must have fallen asleep my watch says it's four in the morning. Am I too late? I dig up her gr
