Buenos dias. I feel compelled to point out that becoming a vampire is not a blessing. It is a curse. That is why we are called Los Malditos, the Cursed Ones. The girl I love, Jenn Leitner, is not attracted to me because I’m a vampire; she loves me in spite of it. But that is a love I cannot share, as I have dedicated myself to the Catholic priesthood. I believe that my devotion to the Church has kept me from turning back toward evil, like all of my other brothers under the fang. I fight beside Jenn and I love her more than anything else on earth, but I can never hope to be what she needs. Of course, she feels differently. But she’s only 18. While I, of course, am far older than that….
