Chapter 26: Why do you hide behind that mask
Initially, I just wanted to check if I had a weakness to water, like some types of vampires I've seen in movie theaters, but... When I found out I didn't have a running water weakness I started swimming and felt great. I ended up getting carried away and I swam until night fell.
Thankfully there wasn't a swim club class today, so I was able to enjoy the pool by myself.
I was currently in the men's locker room using a towel to dry off.
As I used the towel to dry myself, I spoke out loud, "The only weaknesses I have are the blessed items, and that I need to be invited into a stranger's house."
I look at my reflection in the mirror and can't help but notice something, "Did I get taller"
As I stared at my reflection in the mirror, I could momentarily see the figure of my former self, a thin 21-year-old young adult with pale skin and sapphire blue eyes.
I compare my current body with my old body from my memories and I can't help but say something, "It really feels like I went through an experiment to create super soldiers..."
The previous thin, sickly-looking man suddenly turns into a tall, muscular man...
"The vampire's bite forces the host's body to evolve into its peak state…" I muttered aloud.
I was 175 CM before I turned, and now I'm over 180 CM; I wonder how much I will have grown when I stop evolving. My wife Violet said it all depends on my potential...
I stop thinking about bull** and quickly finish drying myself with the towel that was in my closet; when I'm done drying off, I look in my bag and see the outfit I asked June to prepare for me.
I nod my head satisfied, and I look for the clothes I was wearing; when I'm done dressing, I walk out of the men's locker room and carry my bag behind my back.
The moment I step out of the locker room, I start walking down the silent corridors of the college, "Now that I've stopped to think, shouldn't the building security be patrolling"
I hear someone's footsteps approaching in the distance.
I look back and see a man approaching with my vampire vision.
I turn off my vampire vision, and soon my world goes back to normal, and I look at a man who has a smile on his face. He had blond hair, blue eyes, and he behaved politely; he looked like those average princes.
The man suddenly disappeared and reappears in front of me, he takes my face in his hand and throws me into the wall.
I felt dizzy and felt bits of concrete stuck behind my hair. While confused, and alert at the same time, the man laughed contemptuously and said something:
"Yes, indeed, a little strong, but not enough to be by her side; at least with your little strength. Do you think you deserve to be by her side Especially with you being a mere Plebeian. This will never work, just stay away from her, otherwise, I or someone else will kill you and your family for her. That's a friendly warning, feel honored that you can hear so much from someone noble like me. Next time, I won't be so kind." He laughed out loud and looked at me haughtily; his expression was like a Rottweiler looking at a kitten.
I coughed up blood on the floor, I also felt my head regenerate; I looked at the man with a neutral expression while my eyes changed to red.
Did he just threaten my family... Is he a fool...
My head wasn't working well, but I was sure what I heard.
"What do you say How about you just disappear, if you do, I'll let you live." He spoke with the same smile as if he were the most important being in the world. "When you disappear, I'll be free to conquer her."
I crack my neck, and snap my hands, "That hurt," For the first time I spoke.
My head was clearer now.
He disappears from my vision and reappears beside me again, I couldn't react to him as he held me by the face and punched me in the stomach.
"Hahahahaha, so weak, so weak! Why did she choose you! You are so weak, it should have been me!"
I coughed up blood on the floor and he started hitting me again, as he hit me, I looked at him, seeing his arrogant face and expression that was saying 'I am the king of the world', I can't help but think;
'Disappointing... All I feel about this man is just disappointment... Is that what a noble vampire is'
'A creature that has an ego the size of the planet and thinks they're the center of the world'
I'll be honest, I was excited to fight a noble vampire, I was eager to fight and crush them beneath my feet; I thought I was going to have a good challenge... But this is just disappointing...
Why Why am I like that Why am I so disappointed
I don't know where this pride of mine comes from... I'm just a newborn, it's only been three days since I turned into a vampire, but why Why am I just so disappointed Why am I not angry with him After all, he insulted my family, the most important treasure of my life. Something is wrong with me, if it was with Luan, I would have attacked him already, but why is it that, with this man, all I feel is disappointment
I bite my tongue and refuse to scream in pain as he broke my arms and threw me off the third floor; I feel the glass shatter behind my back, and as I fall from the third floor of the building, I gaze at the full moon with a bored look on my face.
I felt pain all over my body, but for some reason, I felt numb; it was a strange experience, it was like this body wasn't mine.
I look at the blond-haired man, and when I see his face, the clouds of doubt in my mind have cleared a little.
"When an insect insults you, do you feel something" I asked myself the question.
The blond-haired man comes down from the third floor and walks towards me.
Soon my smile grows, "No, you don't feel anything." In my mind, even though he is stronger than me, he didn't deserve my attention; I don't know where my pride comes from, but I've felt that way since when I turned into a vampire...
Same with Luan, I thought he was a worthy opponent, but the moment he lowered his head and backed away like a dog, I lost interest... I hate him, but that's just my sadistic side and ego speaking. I wanted to see him humiliate himself one more time and, in doing so, I would feel satisfied, but I had also lost interest in him when he proved to be just an unwilling servant.
I had understood something new about myself, but I still had questions on my mind...
I don't understand... Why am I like this I don't have the experience of a veteran warrior, I'm not a martial arts genius, but why am I like this Why Why
I questioned myself several times in my mind while looking at the full moon, I felt strange, it was like this body wasn't mine, it was like these emotions weren't mine, I felt trapped...
I felt like a wild animal that was trapped and tamed...
I don't understand... Maybe I'm just freaking out... Yes, since I was turned into a vampire, my emotions are very chaotic: I get angry a lot easier, I get attached a lot easier, I hate easier, I feel sadistic pleasure in defeating my enemies, and I feel happy when I step on them with my feet like insects…
Yes, maybe something is wrong with my head.
As I looked at the Full Moon, I heard the vampire's footsteps approaching me, he looks at me, "Today, you're going to die, and I'm going after what belongs to me."
I ignored this man's words... What was his name again He looked strong, but what was his name
Well, I guess he's not important after all...
Suddenly, I remember the words of my teacher Adam.
"What do you think, Victor Why don't you loosen up a little How long are you going to hide behind this 'mask' that you created yourself"
When I remembered those words, I felt like all the doubts I'd had the moment I faced this man were cleared up.
"Haha..." I felt like laughing, laughing out loud, "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" I laughed madly as I placed my left hand, which at some point regenerated, on my forehead and lifted my hair up; it was the first time I had laughed with all my being, and I finally understood why I was feeling weird. All this time, I was holding back... All this time, I wore this mask because it's the right thing to do, after all, everything that's weird is excluded from society. I wore a mask to hide the real me...
When did I start using this mask I asked myself confused.
"What are you laughing at! Shut up and die!"
Oh, I remember now… It was that incident when I was a kid and I got lost in the woods…
"Hey, Vic… Can I call you @#$%" I heard a child's voice in my ears; the voice sounded like static, and I couldn't remember who it was.
I suddenly feel a warm feeling coming from my stomach, it was such intense heat, and it was furiously asking me to let go; I flash a smile full of sharp teeth and let that heat run wild.
A pillar of flame suddenly came out of Victor's body.
"Ahhhh~!" Violet who was lying in one of the underground rooms she had asked to build moaned aloud.
Sasha, Natalia, and Maria who were in the same room watching television just looked at Violet confused.
Violet twitched her legs and lay down on the bed, her eyes were blood red, her breathing was ragged, and she was mumbling. "Darling~! Darling~! Darling~!" She looked like a broken record that kept saying the same word as she twitched her legs.
"Lady Violet What's going on—…Oh my god," Natalia said as she approached Violet, but the moment she saw the erotic face Violet was making, she was surprised.
Sasha approaches Violet, looks at her friend, and when she sees the liquids that were leaking from Violet, she can't help asking, with her cheeks a little red with embarrassment, "W-What is happening" She stuttered a little.
"Darling~ Darling~ I can feel it inside me!" She responded as she squirmed.
"...Huh" Sasha didn't understand.
"Natalia, do you know something" Sasha asked.
Natalia just shook her head no and continued looking at Violet with the same neutral expression, but Maria who was close to Natalia could see that the maid had a small smile on her face.
"Where is Kaguya" Sasha asked as she looked around.
"She is in the shadow of Lord Victor," Natalia replied, and continued, "She is protecting him."
When Sasha was about to say something, she is suddenly surprised when Violet gets up from the bed, "I need to see my Darling!" She spoke with a slightly red face.
"First, you should change your clothes," Sasha spoke in a tone that didn't allow refusal.
Violet looks down and sees the mess that was her dress, she nods her head and then disappears towards the bathroom.
"I'll go ahead, something must have happened to my husband." Sasha spoke with her cheeks showing a little embarrassment, she wasn't used to saying the word 'husband'.
Soon, she too disappears, the only thing normal people could notice was a silhouette of a woman; Sasha's maid Maria also disappears and follows Sasha.
