Carol's long white hair flows in the wind as she runs, jumping over fallen limbs and boulders. She is holding a small baby close to her chest protectively. She slows down once she gets to the top of a hill, waiting for her lover to catch up. It isn't long till he meets her, standing next to her. He looks around, his red eyes full of hate, watching for any pursuers.
"They are almost here." He warned her.
"Okay. We must hurry then Lucifer." She replied, tears starting to form.
They both run down the hill to a small town. Awaiting them was a delicate looking woman. Her hazel eyes shown clearly as she held up the lantern. Her pink hair would constantly get blown in her face. It isn't long until Carol and Lucifer meet her. Devastated by what she must do, Carol hands the baby over to the woman but not before she places a heart-shaped locket around the babies neck.
"Elizabeth, please take care of Alexis." Carol said, wiping away the tears that are now flooding her eyes. Elizabeth nodded as Carol and Lucifer ran to the forest, away from the town. Elizabeth holds the baby comfortingly while walking back into the town. An explosion shakes the ground, engulfing most of the forest, where the young parents ran to, in flames. That would be the last time Elizabeth would see them again.
~15 years later~
Alexis has grown up with Elizabeth, her husband Trey, and her son Ethan. Not wanting for Alexis to remember or know about her past, Elizabeth told her nothing about her parents. Instead, she pretended to be Alexis's mother. She told her that she was born into the family and told her that her name is Jolie.
"Jolie! Come on, we need to practice!" Ethan yelled upon greeting Jolie as she left her bedroom. They are both going to sword practice. They ran through town, avoiding kids playing and large puddles from last night's rain. It's early and the sky looks like orange sherbert with a little pink. The now rising sun is greeted by the love songs of birds that fly overhead. As Ethan and Jolie walk into the sparring room, they realize no one is there.
"Should we just start practicing?" Jolie asks. Ethan nods and throws her a wooden sword from the corner of the room. Both began fighting, beads of sweat slowly forming on their foreheads from the vigorous workout. Its only 30 minutes into practice when the town bell sounds. It only rings when there is an emergency so this took both teens by surprise. They both left the practice room to find that the small town was being attacked by vampires. They quickly grabbed real swords and help with fighting off the vampires.
After helping others with fighting, Jolie sees a young girl being chased by a vampire near the Evergreen Forest. She runs over to defend the child, allowing her to escape. Jolie can see the blood lust in the vampires cold gray eyes. He begins backing her into the forest.
"It's nice to see you once again Alexis." Says a monotone voice from behind her. She turns around to be greeted by a tall vampire with dark red eyes. His long black hair is covering half of his face.
"Do you know where your parents are?" He says, smirking now.
