A few days passed and I began to regain my strength. I was now strong enough to get out of bed and walk around.
"I see you're up." Said Helios smiling. I smiled back.
"How do you feel?"
"Good. Glad to hear it."
"Not now Erin. There is something I would like to share with you." He said, walking over to me.
"What?" He smiled and bit his wrist; causing it to bleed. When I saw the blood I became somewhat aroused.
"Drink." He said, reaching out his wrist to me. I couldn't help myself. I took his wrist gently in my hand and began to drink his blood. It was so warm and the taste was sweet. When I was finished I licked my lips and sighed.
"You're going to want to sit down." I looked at him confused. Then a sharp pain shot through my body. I dropped to the floor in terrible agony.
"Don’t fight it. It'll only make it more painful. Try to relax. Let it happen. Don't worry. Its only your body dying."
I tried to do what Helios instructed, but the pain was so horrible that I could barely move let alone relax. My heart pounded in my chest so fast it felt like it was going to explode. The... nothing... my breath had ceased. My heart had ceased. I had died my mortal death.
A moment later I took a small breath and blinked my eyes a few times. I looked up at him.
"What was that?!" I asked.
"That was your mortal death. You are now immortal."
"No worries. You shall know in time." He smiled.
Helios was a good looking gentleman. With short dark brown hair and blue gray eyes. He wasn't very tall, about 5ft6in or so. He had an instinctual disposition, but was gentle and very patient with me.
I was beside myself on how he conducted himself. He was confident and intuitive. Very intelligent. Quiet, but vocal when the need called for it. Truthful and decent with a little bit of attitude mixed in with his personality. I admired him and longed to be like him. A few more days passed and I felt better than I had ever felt. Helios was quite impressed and proud of me that I had recovered so quickly. He had told me that it usually took a week or so to recover one's strength fully a I had regained mine in two or three days.
