Chapter One: Death's Embrace and Death's Son

I lay awake in my bed. Having nightmares were not good to me. I just don't know what to do anymore since I knew that my life would take a turn for the worst. I hate to sleep every night without knowing what these nightmares are all about. I hate to just not sleep and never understand the source of almost anything in this world.

I slowly got out of my bed. It had the covers of moon, sun and stars all over it. With matching wall paint surrounding me. I am not what some people think I am. I am not a vampire, yet, I act like I am one. I sighed as I stared at my black laptop sitting on the desk... there was a message blinking to tell me that I have email. It did not made any noise, but of course, could explain why I was able to slept through a deep silence in my room.

And people thinks that I am a witch because I have a collection of faeries, wizards, and dragons in my whole home. But I'm not a witch. I am just an 18 year old woman with a lot of money. After, my parents and grandparents had died, I just inherited many things from them. It was my grandmother who had painted the whole house with a different theme for each room. It was unique and I was very much like her.

Of course, I decided to stop staring around my room and just go to my bathroom which the theme took after mermaids. The walls looked like waves, the shower looked like bubbles. The mirror took the shape after a bubble too. I stared into the mirror at my dark green eyes. My face looked tired but it was all because I couldn't sleep right. My black messy hair looked like something went inside and just caused tangles to appear. I sighed gently as I began to brush my hair out. The tangles got loose quickly. I took a long shower, trying to get myself awake.

After the long shower, I went into my walk in closet and just grabbed a long black Lolita dress. I dressed myself into my undergarments and put the dress over me. I gently tied the bows on the back of the dress. I went to the dresser in the back of the closet and grabbed some stockings. The boots were closely by the chair where I sat down and put the stockings on carefully not to untie the bows behind my back. I then slip the boots on and zipped the sides. I walked back into the bathroom to start doing my hair. I tied some bows in my hair and decided to leave it to that. I closed the bathroom door to see the tall mirror hanging. I stared at myself and sighed gently.

I was ready to go to work. I cosplayed for a living. It is what gives me my money for food and some of the bills. I only inherited the rich part but I still have to make a living anyways. I just can't sit around like a rich person would. I just don't like doing anything. Wearing these dresses proved to be worthy to me though. I liked doing this.

I heard the phone ringing and went to answer it. "Hello?" I asked through the receiver.

"Danielle? I hope that this is you on the phone, but I need you to come down the store right now." A voice said on the other said. It could only be my boss at Lolita Tea Cafe.

"Misty, you know that I live on my own." I sighed as I told her. "But, I am just getting ready to head out of the door though. Do you need anything while I'm on the way there?"

"Well, now that you mention... well, could you stop by the jewelry store and pick up my order for me?" Misty, my boss, asked me.

"Sure. If you trust me that much..." I started to make a joke but stopped short.

"Dani, you know that I trust you." Misty sighed. "Stop being a failure to jokes too."

"Alright, Misty. I'll be there, then, along with your pick up order." I sighed gently as I hung up the phone.

I went to get my purse and just locked my doors as I went out to the street. People would always stare at me, both at my dress and where I live. I walked down the street of Hallow's Eve Street. Another thing that my grandmother liked because of the name of the street. Maybe she was a witch back in the day? Oh, well, I thought as I just walked down the street. I was about to turn the corner when I bumped into a man. I heard a gasp and then I looked at the man. He looked like he was in a rush since he ignored me and just walked past me after I rudely bumped into him. I started after him but it was my turn to gasp when I saw him crossing the street, during the busy traffic. I ran after him to stop him but then I turned in time to noticed a car coming at me. I screamed and heard a crash but that was all I heard before I began to feel pain and a darkness started to come over me.

2 days later:

I woke up, but I could still see darkness. I heard voices though. I couldn't understand them at first but slowly, I began to strain to hear what the voices are saying.

"She should be dead..." A voice whispered, which was a woman.

"She is dead." A man's voice whispered now.

"Not that kind of dead! She didn't need to be kidnapped right when that accident happened." The woman's voice said.

"It was my fault for crossing the damn street during a busy traffic time." The man sighed.

"Hmph. Again, she does not need to know about us... It would be best if we could put a stake through her heart now." The woman growled...

Growled? What? Where am I? And a stake? What the hell is this woman talking about? I was scared.

"No! She is not that type of dead... I merely healed her." The man growled back at her.

My body ached a bit... I moaned a bit. I heard some noises and then I opened my eyes, staring at faces. They were staring back at me. "What...?"

"Hush, Danielle... you'll be fine." The man said gently.

"Ok... Wait! How did you know my name?" I asked him.

"I looked in your purse." He said promptly.

Oh... how dumb should I get? I took my purse liked I suppose to do... but something made me think of something else.

"How did I survive that? I felt the pain and the darkness." I said confused.

"I saved you... I revived you from Death's Embrace... he was almost hugging you closer to death, but I made a deal." He said...

"A deal?!" I said with harmony with the woman that was behind the man.

"Before we get to that..." The man sighed. "My name is Phillip de Frezechez. This is my mother, Hope de Frezechez."

"Um... my name is Danielle Cruzen." I merely said in a mumble. "And the deal with death?"

"Well, about that... well... I told him in return that I could find him a better victim. And that you would serve me." Phillip said.

I only stared at him... I began to feel weak but not because of him, but because I was feeling warily around him.

"It's not that hard for me to make a deal with Death..." Phillip stated, "You see... my dad is Death alone."

Then I let darkness consume me since then I fainted with disbelief
