“You do know that she’s a human and not a vampire right, Zayn? You could have killed her tonight.” Harry sighed as he gently dabbed off a few strayed droplets of his blood that stained the corner of Evelyn's lips.

“It’s a good thing that we are vampires isn’t it?” Zayn replied sullenly without looking up at Harry, who was standing on the other side of the enormous red plush bed that Evelyn was laying in.

It was true, the blood of a vampire had extraordinary healing powers over humans, and Zayn was pretty sure that if neither him nor Harry had managed to give Evelyn some of their blood in time, then the chances are that Evelyn may suffer from a serious neck injury for the rest of her life. Deoxygenating of the brain was dangerous as well, and Zayn knew he could have caused some serious mental damage to Evelyn if he didn’t realise what he was doing to her in time…

Harry sighed. “Anyway, why did you call for me? Couldn’t you just give her some of your blood? You’re older than me, I’m pretty sure your blood will heal her faster than mine.” The curly haired vampire asked, curious of the motives of his maker since the moment he called for him.

The King smiled faintly. “Can’t you see how much she hates me? Every second and every day, from the way she act around me to the way she looks at me, it’s clear for everyone to see just how much she despise the idea of being near me… She would be repulsed by the idea of having my blood in her system.”

“Then why did you ask me?”

“Because she doesn’t hate you Harry, you saved her life once, and I can tell that she’s grateful of it. Also, she trusts you.”

Harry chuckled as he inspected Evelyn's neck – like he expected – the dark finger marks were fading. “You do pay a lot of attention to her after all; I can’t remember the last time that you were this considerate about anyone or anything other than the well being of the country.”

Hesitantly, he peaked at his maker and King, and he noticed the way that Zayn was staring at Evelyn. With so much love and so much consideration… it was heart melting just how much the King cared for the fragile human.

But even though Zayn was his maker and it was in Harry’s nature to respect, be loyal and want the highest form of happiness for him, and Harry does, there were times when he couldn’t help but feel a jab of pain in his chest at the thought of Evelyn loving Zayn… Harry knew that what he felt was wrong and it could be considered as treason if anyone ever found out what was going on in his head, but he couldn’t help it.

What he felt was out of his control.

“You’re not old enough to remember the last time I felt like this for a girl,” Zayn replied after a long pause. “Me and her ended before you were even born.”

 “Her name was Venice wasn’t it?” Harry smiled, remembering all of the beautiful tales of the times when the two were together and in love… before tragedy struck that was.

However, even after all those years, Zayn remained in love with Venice like he was all those centuries before. Legend has it that Venice, the so called city of love, in Italy was built by the King himself and named after her because of its beauty. But whether or not that was true was never confronted by the King and no one dared to ask him in case it sparked up the pain of broken heart.
