Fortunate are those who find life before they find death, and, Lina wasn’t ever really good in anything having to do with luck.
If only will could change destinies, mine would’ve been the most grandiose. She thought in a lazy manner as her paralyzed body lay in a pool of her own blood, unable to change anything, unable to live; before she succumbed to the pitch-black darkness that had always followed her around like a shadow.
“Are you just going to leave like this? Don’t you despise the skies?” she didn't remember who said that or when, the only memory that didn't fade as quickly as she grasped it was of the fear and sheer panic that heavy surreal voice brought her.
“I’ll carry your burdens for you” a single ray of light had broken through the veil.
“I’ll get rid of your life here. So, lead a better one in another world” these were the only words left of a whole lifetime. A monologue that flowed like a butchered incantation in her mind
Not that her life before was worth any space in her mind.
Those were the only flashbacks that occasionally crossed her mind. The only remnants she kept wishing over and over to be cleared away. She didn't need the scrapes of her past. She had a father now, and his friends that treated her as one of their own, a warm home, and meals that came without begging for hours.
The only thing left was this curiosity that came with being a child. That was needed to be disposed of if she wanted to explore her dad’s glass workshop. But damn the beautiful intricate glass works that pulled her attention like magnets. And almost always ended up on the floor.
If Zeke was not a vampire with miraculous healing abilities, he would’ve gone bald by then.
Thank God, healing perks covered hair fall that accompanied frustration, occasionally leading him to pull his scalp out.
Thank God, childhood perks covered all damages with the evolutionary counter attack that was puppy eyes. Highly effective when dealing damages.
She decided that she didn't need to let the scrapes of her past weigh down her fate here. She had a future now. Something her past never offered her.
