Queen of Twilight chapter 3Chapter Three • First Blood
The next week passed swiftly, occupied by Elsabett's exploration of the massive castle as well as her training and outfitting by her new family. Vlad was surprised to find how well she could handle a sword, and was even more impressed when she produced a handful of throwing knives and demonstrated her well-practised aim. Revelations seemed to come more often but were usually incomprehensible, slipping away from her consciousness like water between her fingers, and were sometimes accompanied by a sickness-like malaise.
'I can't be ill,' she thought, pressing her hands to her aching stomach, 'because I'm a vampire now. Vampires don't become ill. It must be homesickness. I do miss Mutti and my little brothers and sisters…but I can't visit them. Not yet, anyway.'
"When was it you last fed?" Marishka asked, quietly entering the room. "Vampires do not need to eat as often as humans do, but you should go hunting at least once a week

"Aleera, Marishka, Verona!" Vlad called as he and Elsabett landed on the rough-hewn balcony of a black spire sticking into the sky. "Come and meet your new sister!"
Shrieks of mixed joy and shock echoed from the depths of the tower as Vlad took Elsabett by the hand and led her down narrow spiral stairs. In a tiny yet lavish hall, she was greeted by the sight of three pale and slender women, one blonde, one red-haired, and one with hair as black as midnight.

The orange gas light blinked mockingly at the woman behind the wheel. It was making fun of her; she knew it was making fun of her. Grabbing the black cellular phone on the passenger seat, she looked at it with full intention of calling somebody to come help her.
“Oh, what the hell?!”
The “no service” sign was mocking her at the same exact time. The horn beeped loudly as she slammed her head against it once again. The day was out to get her in general. She had arrived at all her classes late, and her son was sick with the flu. The babysitter was able to watch him as she went to her late night classes. Giving a heavy sigh, she lifted her head off the wheel to look out the window. Drops of water pooled on the windshield as rain started to fall in a pitter-patter pattern. She didn’t quite understand the message th
