The name was Devin Alice Smith, but if you called me Devin I could grantee you a black eye, everyone who was sane called me Alice. I had long brown hair, and pale blue eyes. I was not short and I was not tall. I was smart, but not nerdy, strong but not a jock, tuff but not punk, creative but not artsy. There was nothing special about me until I was marked. I was walking to the busses when a guy stepped out of the shadows and said, " Devin Alice Smith! Night has chosen thee; thy death will be thy birth. Night calls to thee; hearken to Her sweet voice. Your destiny awaits you at the House of Night!" I passed out.
I drifted out onto a misty lake. I knew I was dreaming. I was wearing a white silk Greek style dress, it was beautiful. Then I was a woman with a blond French braid and a dress just like mine. " Come fille (French for daughter)," I followed her.
"Who are you?" I called trying to keep up with her.
" I have many names but the one you will know me as is Nyx." She said, her voice sounding like music.
" Why am I here? What happened to me? How can-" I stated babbling.
" You have been marked to become a vampyre ,and you are here so I can give you a message. Remember evil does not equal darkness as goodness does not equal light ( a/n does that sound familiar? I just borrowed it),"She interrupted me. The she kissed my forehead and I began to wake up.
I woke to people calling my name, "Alice, Alice, are you alright?"
"I'm fine," I call out opening my eyes. A few of my friends were looking down on my their mouths hanging open.
" Your goin' to eat flies if you keep your mouths open like that," I said in my full southern accent. It only got real bad when I was mad, or embarrassed. It seemed to snap them out of it.
"Come on Alice, I'll give you a ride home," my neighbor said she had just gotten her licensee but we weren't good friends so this surprised me.
" Sure," I said getting up.
On the way home I pulled down the mirror and almost cussed, which is something I don't do. On the middle of my forehead was a full blue crescent moon with a ribbon like design coming off it. When I got home I rushed in to my dad who was thankfully home. " DAD! What's goin' on?" I yelled as soon as I walked in the door.
" Honey we have to get you to a special school or you'll die," he said a little shaken. After I had packed, and my dad explained what was going on, he drove me to the Nashville house of night, the closest 1 to where I lived. At the door I was greeted by a woman with a red moon and flower marks on her head.
" Greetings, you must be Alice, we've been expecting you. My name is Steve Rae. I'm the High Priestess of all Red Vampyres and this House of Night. However, Judging by your mark you will be transferring to the New York House of Night, it is a place for fledglings who are specially marked by Nyx," she said.
"When do I go?" I asked.
" As soon as your father leaves." I boarded the plane and watched good old Tennessee disappear behind the clouds.
