I love a vampire...
But he is more broken than I. And even through the shards of our fragmented relationship, dangers are always present. My kind were being murdered, by whom, I did not know. And my new masters, the clandestine House of Assassins would not leave me be. Membership is not optional so I can never escape them.
But through it all, I listen to my father, my mentor, and his true words, Master your Flame, and you master your world.
Now I just have to live that long to do that.
