Thursday, September 20, 200750: Birthday!!
“Which means?” Lestat asked. Louis told me the answer in his head.
“Fantastic. Great! Merci guys!” I replied cheerfully. I reached to take it off, but they urged me to go to the mirror. Wow, it had some semi precious stones carved in. so sweet.
“Don’t take it off. Your hair’s just right. Please.”
“But my hair is thick though, and hot. I mean, don’t you feel hot, Louis?”
The poet agreed softly. Bratp. came up from behind me and teased out the tangles at the nape of my neck. We looked perfect for each other. I was wearing knee length stockings, a violet scarf, white sleeveless blouse. Lestat sported his hair in a new trendy style, fringe on the left side, sparkling electric blue-violet pupils, high cheekbones of royalty; clothes plain but accentuating his good looks. The white shirt with blue stripes’ sleeves and dark green trousers.
I hugged both of them tightly, without my usual restraint. A present from
“Um I think I’m sleepy now,” I declared, running upstairs. Lestat pouted.
“Ok, then lemme come.” He lay down on his big bed, unfolding the blankets. I sang Anastascia’s Once upon a December. His face suffused with great love.
Hey Louis, I thought it’s dangerous for you guys to let us know your sleeping place.--------- I noted, walking over to my room.
I hesitated. Now I was outside Louis’ door. He had come upstairs. My bro trailed behind, eyes widened. We’d read the third book, the forbidden one. It was on their ancient queen, and all of them almost perished! While looking out for my own novel, that book had tumbled out from its collection. We had been horrified by its implications. Lestat would be so mad at us if he knew this. Louis had heard all this inside, but accepted it. He was not furious or annoyed, even. Why not? “I was shocked myself. My maker was angry, because he went through a
“Which one?” So cute, he selected a Dr Seuss storybook with illustrations.
“Make your voices go up and down please. Now, begin, pg 30.”
Louis, me and my bro took turns to act out, animating them. Complete with movements, sound effects. Louis grumbled how his throat would ache since he had forced it higher than usual.
“Stop whining. You’ve been that---“
“For centuries!” we finished. Lestat guffawed.
“Ok that’s enough excitement.” The dark haired gentleman was kinda pissed. We couldn’t stop though and our laughter continued throughout till the clock struck 1 am.
I won’t forget that happiest birthday of my life.
I slept. Louis had placed himself between us and his maker. When I woke up, it was someone poking me. Lestat slurred, “Go back… it’s almost 6am. Hurry up.” His pupils were so small and face very pale. I obediently (and groggily) stumbled away. The door clicked shut. On second thoughts, I locked up. We had a matron who’d come in to clean in the mornings.
Part 2 was another night out. It was Saturday and I would have my weeklong break. Yay! Usually I just spend more time with my buds, I can’t go overseas or do anything exciting. I used to, but that was when I was six or seven. My folks are too busy to organize things like that now. I wish, wish wish I could travel
My foster parents took me to a café to eat other cakes and puffs. “She really eats a lot!” my super buggy bro complained. I glared at him.
“It’s alright. Just this once,” Lestat defended me. This time, he would use his credit card. I hope he wouldn’t blow it again, once, he felt kind of embarrassed the man informed him it bounced.
“You got enough credit?”
“Yes. I brought about 4 more, in case it bounces. Gotta check the papers.” He rolled his eyes, and smiled happily at some women passing by. I forgot much of what I did on the second day, just that it was simple.
This journal won’t just focus on others, or it’d not be mine. My day activities too. I was chosen to act in Guns and Roses. We used our own costumes----our shapechanging to become the characters. The performance was in the late evening. Yay! I could ask the night people to come. Invited Daniel, Armand, Quinn too. However Quinn messaged me that he could not. Sorry, Krys. I really wanted to watch you, I myself am no actor. But mona said I have to accomp. Her to the house of mayfairs. Got some ghosts to bust… Plus nash needs to discuss finances with me. Tell me how it went,k? break a leg (lots of luck)!!
Stat commented how outstanding we all were. His hair was cut, brushed back neatly and slicked. For the occasion, he wore this golden seamed riding coat, with the flares to the back. The other guy also wore similar attire and glasses covered their irises. The crowds were building. More people streamed in to find their kids, or ask for autographs.
Louis moaned, “Claustro here. Help me.” We tried to clear a path. I stopped a waiter from dropping his tray. Louis apologized, more uncomfortable by the minute. Somehow, the older vampire’s shades got knocked off, exposing them to innocent bystanders. A young girl fainted. Stat’s hand went about her back. She giggled. She had got charmed by his charisma.
“Sorry. Are you alright? Darn, where’re they?” He steadied her, sending her off. My friends helped to look for them. Armand and Daniel were close by. Armand looked so boyish in long sleeved jacket and white slacks, Daniel in tshirt as always. “Got them!” the latter shouted.
Lestat smiled. Phew. Otherwise more people will faint. And this bloodscent is too strong. Need to mooove.
“Hey people. Thanks for coming,” I exclaimed. Armand dipped me a kiss. The shades covered his eyes once more. Then a familiar voice called me. “Hey Neferin!”She was the snow leopard who donated her people’s Chirac for Lestat. Bratprince laughed, taking her aside.
“May we chat then? How was your birthday?” Armand wanted to know. He still sounded like an old man.
“You really are 400 years old. Or add another 100 to that?”
“I am , yes. But I know a lot more about comps than your buddies,” he teased.
“haha, my birthday was fine. Oh thank you!” He had produced a bouquet of violets, and a small box.
Neferin and my teacher talked at length. They still hadn’t wrapped up when I approached. Wow you found out some special things? Making her laugh so much.
Bianca! Expanding my social network. That was a wonderful show. I’m so happy. Thanks so much for inviting us. -------- his smile was very infectious, grinning in the manner of a wildcat. That was the most he told me and nothing more.
Neferin told us she had to go attend to her children. Ok, bye.
We left. Lestat felt peckish in a sea of humans. Actually Louis didn’t want to walk by the crowded place, but to avoid the Vampire hunters, we decided to do that. Much to his dismay.
