The Things One Does For Love
HIGHEST RANK: #151 IN SHORT STORY
[ SECOND PLACE IN 'SHORT STORY' IN THE ICE AWARDS 2017 ]
He was a vampire, who only had one simple wish: to achieve freedom and to gain back the life he had lost.
And she was only a young girl in love for the first time, who was just too kind that day.
A short and completed romance-cum-vampire story in which the significant question of how much one will do for love will be questioned between both parties.
The characters were [...] both memorable individuals from the moment they were introduced. It's a wonder how I never found this story on my own. [...] Such a damn tearjerker, too.
I really really enjoyed it. It's like a Shakespearean tragedy, as it only gives you a small glance of their lives, and then throws in the brutal ending. I can't say a lot, other than the writing style and descriptions were fantastic. Usually vampire stories with bits of romance throw in are cheesy and not all that good, but this was incredible.

Heartbreaking but amazing.
