Resolve Part 4
I regretted it.
For the first time since I was a child, I pleaded for help.
At the very least, I had returned to my senses after that. The suffering Id endured in here already far surpassed the ordeals the humans put me through. Even if I knew there were creatures stronger than me, nobody could ever imagine the damned monsters that shouldn even be allowed to exist.
Things were slightly put into perspective. My race is fated to fight against humans as long as our blood compels us to feed from them. When I was a child, I didn want to hurt others. That mindset was short-lived. The story of what happened during my upbringing can wait for another time.
By the time I was around 18 years of age, I swore vengeance against the humans. It wasn my blood that was driving me to fight them, just my pure rage. I fought for several years nonstop, claiming thousands of human lives each day. But what is revenge in the grand scheme of things? I don even know how big the world I come from is. In the end, Im just a big fish in a small pond.
Well, I don even know how big I am anymore. Maybe when this is all over, I can journey the faraway lands and experience what life truly has to offer.
Huh? Whos laughing now?
Its obviously me again. But this time, it was a genuine laugh.
Id realized how silly this battle has been.
If vampires don drink human blood, well be driven to insanity followed by death. But the vast majority of us don even fight to save ourselves from going insane. We take pride and enjoyment out of killing and enslaving humans.
This conflict won end until either side is wiped out. Is there a possibility we can coexist? No. Most humans won just allow vampires to suck blood from them so they can stay alive. And the vampires whove found pleasure and become accustomed to fighting humans won stop after all this time.
I spent years thinking. How can I bring this several-century-long battle to a close? A definite solution never came to mind. If I was simply able to think of a way where humans and vampires no longer had to fight each other, this battle wouldve ended long ago. But I did think of a course of action that could someday lead to a solution.
I will join the side of the humans.
To do so, I must be able to forgive them. Without realizing it, I already had.
Being sealed was a blessing.
For the first time in my life, I felt grateful.
I decided to keep hold of my resolve for as long as I lived. There was no way for me to determine when Id be released, but I would wait as long as it could take.
After patiently waiting, the darkness that accompanied me had finally gone away. I found myself in a vast tomb. Somebody broke the seal, who I assumed to be a vampire. To my expectations it was. ”The seal wasn complex at all, it was just impossible to find ”, is what he told me. Apparently someone leaked it to them. I didn care, what mattered was that I was finally freed.
Upon meeting other vampires, I found out I was sealed for over 200 years. I shouldve been surprised but wasn . Just like how I wasn surprised humans and vampires are still fighting.
I notice a captured boy who was undoubtedly brought as an offering. I decided to side with the humans, so I of course planned to save him. Thats when it hit me.
Ive never saved anybody else, not even my own kind. I was so absorbed with revenge while fighting, I never even tried to save those I couldve easily protected.
This would be the first person Ive ever saved. When he suffered a fatal wound, I selfishly decided I wouldn allow him to die. Even if he did want to live and ended up accepting that I turned him into a vampire, this was nothing more than an attempt at my start for atonement.
Nonetheless, I will stay by the boys side now. The moment he established his will to live to me, our fates intertwined.
Instead of using my power to take lives, I finally saved one.
I divulged this to everyone in the courtroom.
I let my resolve be known, so they could in turn trust me.
