Transcript[edit | edit source]
I failed him. Everything I've done, I did for him. All the pain, all the suffering. All of it. I just wanted him to live a good life, a happy life. But I failed. I was foolish. I never even considered they'd come after us at our home. I should have been smarter.
It happened last week. It seemed like a simple deal at the time. Food for weapons, a fair trade. Of course, things went south. I thought I'd given them the slip, but they followed me home. That's when he got involved.
He should have let me handle it. I can look after myself. Not just myself, I used to be able to look after both of us. I guess it's too late to dwell on what could have been though. The blade must have been poisoned. It barely touched him. Now, after everything, I'm losing the only family I have left. My baby brother is dying and it's all my fault.
I need to get help for him. I can't let him die. No, I won't let him die. They'll be tithing our sector in a couple more weeks and he won't be well enough to cope, if he even survives for that long.
I've heard of a doctor in sector five, maybe they can help. I don't have money, but I can work something out. Everyone has a price. If I've learnt nothing else from this life, I've learnt that.
The doctor was a dead end, literally. Apparently the vampyres took him to Darkmeyer a few weeks ago. He'll never be seen again.
Thing is, just when I thought all hope was lost, things took a strange turn. As I returned home, I was confronted by a strange looking man wearing a large medallion.
The human disguise didn't fool me. He was far too clean to actually live in this place. I knew he was a vampyre. I told him he didn't scare me, but he just laughed.
He came closer and called me by my name. He told me he had an offer, one I wouldn't be able to refuse. It's not the first time I've heard that. I'm no fool.
Hope presents itself in mysterious ways. This strange vampyre claims to have a way to save my brother.
I don't know how he knew about us. Maybe I made too much noise when asking about that doctor. It doesn't matter now.
Now I have a chance to save him. I have to take it, no matter what it costs.
The vampyre visited our home today. He wanted to present his offer to me. I took him down into the basement so we could talk in private.
He spoke of an operation which could cure my brother of his illness. He offered no guarantees, but claimed he was confident it would work. He just needed to ensure my brother is 'compatible.'
Nothing comes free around here, especially when the vampyres are involved. He had no reason to help us. He clearly wanted something in return. I asked him what it was. When he told me, I felt a shiver go down my spine.
For a moment, I questioned if it was worth the cost. Was my brother worth all of that pain? I didn't debate for long. Of course he was. For him, no price is too great.
Not long to go until they take my brother. Apparently, they have a secret lab where the operation will take place. The vampyre says he'll be safe there.
I asked him about my own operation. How much pain would there be? Would I remember anything afterwards? He was honest with me. By the time they're done, they'll be nothing left of the person I am now. I guess that's why I've actually been using this diary for once. Soon it will be all that's left of me.
Today is the day. They'll take my brother first. There's no need for him to know what I'm about to sacrifice.
By the time my operation begins, he'll be fast asleep recovering from his own. I know my brother better than anyone. He'll take a long time to understand my sacrifice. Maybe he never will. I hope one day he has the heart to forgive me.I've asked the vampyre to give this diary to him. Hopefully it will help. Brother, if you are reading this, know that everything I have done has been for you. I'm sorry.
