Phoenix - Owner

d9e54145a2d718aa59dc9899dcddf2b8.gif

The autumn leaves around the town square blew at Vincent’s feet as he sat on the park bench; his eyes fixated on the swirl of golden brown leaves. This season used to be Vincent’s favorite time of year. With the leaves changing and the relief from the harsh summers in Scotland was something he liked and looked forward to every year. However, it felt different to be sitting here in the town square of Tobermory. He had only been back home a handful of times over the last several centuries and each time, it was harder to come back here. Luckily, with time, everything changed. Each time he came back, more things were added and it was almost like a different town all together. However, with everything that happened, he wanted to make it to the festival that they’ve been holding ever since he was a little boy. A tradition that his village established and it must have been successfully passed down each generation. That filled the Phoenix with warmth despite how much he wanted to cut ties with his past. So as he sat there and his brown hues took in the surrounding, there wasn’t that hint of familiarity that creeps up on him. 

Knowing the festivities were starting soon, he sat there waiting until crowds of people were coming from the streets. He had gone to the forest early on, visiting the places where he put little memorials for Greyson and his mother. Small flames inside open tree trunks that were contained and didn’t grow but only remained within the constraints Vincent had made. The trees were deep in the forest where no one could really find them but only those who traveled deep enough. He knew if anyone would find them, they would become some type of urban legend within the town but he knew his secrets were safe for now. 

He sat on the bench, waiting for the festival to start which he wasn’t waiting long for. The music came first and then the dancers. This festival was an all day festival and he knew that the finale of all this would be the lanterns lifting off at the end of the night near the shore would be something that his family started. The festival was a celebration of their town’s beginnings and he remembered the first one quite well. He was just 14 years old and he remembered making a friend that year. A friend who he didn’t know would mean such a great deal to him and end up being his first love. 

TeiP.gifAs he watched the dancers from where he sat, his mind went back to where he shared his first dance with Rebekkah. Them dancing in the firelight with the other couples before he finally got enough nerve to share his first kiss with her after spending the whole festival with her. He remembered how nervous he was asking her if he could accompany her to the festival only for her to agree. He doubted she even knew how much he really liked her back then. It was also a time where he remembered his mother looking happy. The smile that was on his mother’s features was something he remembered because it was rare to see his mother so happy back then. It was a good day that lived freshly in his mind and it caused a small fond smile to form. 

Hearing a familiar song, an old one that he knew well came on and that’s when he got up from his spot and walked over to the circle of people that watched the dancers. It was bringing back good memories being here as that warm feeling settled into him.

The leaves were falling like snow and it just only added to what Vincent liked about the season and the music helped him. As they were done, he clapped like everyone else and the dancers parted. However as they parted, what Vincent saw before him made his blood run cold. First it was the blue eyes that met his and then the feeling of tightness in his chest squeezed at him, taking his breath away. His brown eyes locked with hers as he breathed out her name. “Rebekkah?”

    Rebekkah had always liked Scotland in the autumn. She walked her home village of Tobermory; she came back just time for the festival. It's was her favorite out of all the festivals she had seen all over Europe. She visited the cemetery, and placed flowers on a grave marked Dimare. It was almost nightfall as she made her back to the village. She could hear the music and smelled the food coming from the local tavern. She heard a familiar song that pulled her toward the crowd. She saw the people dancing and whirl around; it reminded her of time before she was a vampire.

    It was this time centuries ago, but it seems like yesterday to Rebekkah. She was 14yrs old, sent to live and help a family named Dimare. Where she met a young man named Vincent. One day as they were watching some villagers set up for the festival. Vincent asked her to go to the festival. Rebekkah was so nervous and excited; it was her first festival and her date with someone she had a crush on.

    They danced and shared food, just as the fireworks went off. Becca and Vincent shared their first kiss. As the music stopped, Rebekkah shook her head to bring her back to reality. She noticed she was touching her lips as she could still feel the kiss. Then she noticed the crowd clearing out. That's when she saw a face that she hadn't seen in centuries. She thought to herself, Vincent, is that you. Then with her vampire hearing, he could hear him say her name as their eyes meet across the crowd.
