I am one of the immortal ones as my dad would say. Well you would call us vampires or monsters nowadays. We mostly lived in the mountains far away from the mortals but every once and awhile we had to move to the city. This story is about how this one city changed everything for the rest of our lives.
Now we didn't always live with dad. I don't remember much from this time nor does my little sister, but I remember that I was hungry and cold. My older brother and sister who are twins on the other hand have terrible nightmares about it almost every night how we almost starved to death in a particularly cold winter and how we wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for dad. My brother Atanas has what you would call a photographic memory: everything he has ever seen, heard, or thought is in his head forever and eternity.
