Nightmares aren't new for Nick. Even when he feeds he sees his mangled dead wife. This dream is a reminder of reality. For Gwen to stay with him she'll have to be Turned. Nick doesn't like her having to give up her future dreams. Or having children. Is he worth the sacrifice? And is their love strong enough to last for eternity?
A full moon cast silvery light across the lake. Placid waters gently lapped at the shore as frogs and crickets sang songs. Nick stood on the shore’s edge and gazed at the water. As if on cue, a new presence drew his attention. Gwen approached in a flowing red gown with her blonde hair tumbling over her bare shoulders
Happiness filled him as her hand touched his cheek. His lips closed over hers in a kiss that grew more heated. Even in dreams, he wanted her.
But things weren’t right. He pulled back to find Gwen fifty years older. Wrinkles covered her face, and her hair was white now.
“What’s wrong?” Gwen tried to kiss him again. Her fingers turned into claws that dug into his arms. “Don’t you still love me?”
Nick watched in growing revulsion as she continued to age. He tried prying her hands away, but they were hooked too deeply. To his horror, Gwen’s face shriveled and her eyes turned milky white.
“Don’t you find me beautiful?” Gwen’s skin desiccated and her hair flaked off in gray clumps.
Nick pushed Gwen away, leathery fingers broken. She hit the ground, and her body exploded into dust.
