I like to think my family is pretty normal. I have a mom and a dad. We even had a dog for a while. His name was Bear and he was my best friend. We were together for the better part of eight years until he passed away at the age of 13. He was five when my parents gave him to me.
I was born in the desert town of Oasis Springs, where my dad, Ryan Cole, still works as a Scientist. His job is so crazy that he’s even been abducted by aliens! Or so he says. Yeah, I didn’t believe him either. My mom, Katherine, is the Dean of Admissions at the University of Britechester and it’s because of her that I worked hard to get good grades.
I love my parents but being their only kid got lonely as I grew up, especially after Bear died.
My dad had traveled all the way to Windenberg to buy him from the Cameron’s! Yeah, that’s right. The Blaine Cameron! His music is what got me into joining Drama Club in elementary school. Silly, I know, but I love music and I love acting. My dad wants me to do something more practical, like go to college to become a doctor or an educator, like my mom. *Insert eyeroll here*
I guess growing up with my parents wasn’t all that terrible. We took trips to Sulani, which held a special place in my parents’ hearts, as my dad had proposed there.
Anyways, today was my eighteenth birthday, which means that I finally finished high school! This is what I look like today.
And this is where my story begins.
**Bear the dog was created by The Cameron Saga. Link to her story is in mine. ❤ I like to think the Cole’s gave Bear a good life.

Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.”

Carpe Noctem. For those who don’t know, those two words are Latin for the phrase ‘Seize the Night’. Sounds like a well-known quote, right? Well, it’s not so funny to me anymore. But I’m getting ahead of myself. My name is William Noctem and I’m here to tell you what happened after I met Caleb Vatore.
Caleb seemed like a decent guy at first, until I found out that he and his sister Lilith- I think that’s what her name is- were vampires. Yes: Blood-drinking, powerful creatures of the night!
As I’ve said before, my name is William Noctem and this is the story of my life as a newborn vampire.
**Note: This is a better introduction and I changed his name from Constantine Willoughby to William Noctem.
A friend of mine thought I could start a vampire legacy. Meet Constantine Willoughby. He’s currently mortal but is fast becoming friends with vampire Caleb Vatore. Do you think I should start a story with Constantine once he’s immortal?
Born in Willow Creek and now living in the small town of Forgotten Hallow, Constantine Willoughby wasn’t sure if he’d find someone to settle down with. Will he ever find a partner or will the dark secrets of Forgotten Hollow haunt him for eternity?
