Everyone remembers their first… even if it is the first soul that they destroy.


I’m not 100% how the vampirism works in this story… I get the feeling that the heart is taken from the new vampire. And then they start to suck away people’s souls and potential. That’s at least the gist that I got from this short story. Which is a really cool concept. If I’m correct. And honestly, my biggest issue with this story was the fact that I’m really not sure what was going on and the background behind the story.

Some people have a run of bad luck, but the fact that someone who is just a no hoper and willing to take someone else’s success kind of sucked. Especially when the voice of the story was so annoyingly self centred. As I said, great concept of a story, but didn’t necessarily enjoy the execution of it.
