A Walk In The Sun

Alderon doesn’t want to bite the woman he loves and turn her into a vampire for all eternity.

ALDERON:  Suck your blood?  (beat) It’s alot more complicated than that Kyra.  (beat) It’s a curse you don’t want.  You think it’s power?  You think being immortal is special?  (beat) I understand that you want to be with me forever and I do love you…deeply, but I have been around a long time and I have had many great loves…sorry to tell you this but I’m telling you because it is the only way I can protect you.

(pause.)

Maybe I’m going about this the wrong way.  It’s never been easy for me.  One would think I would be wiser by now but the heart always blinds the mind.  (beat) I shouldn’t have done this!  I shouldn’t have!  I want you to hate me.  PLEASE, hate me, Kyra…hate me for the rest of your normal life.

(he motions to leave, then stops)

I love you…I’ve always loved you but I won’t make you like me.  The day I do that is the day I take a walk in the sun.

(he leaves)
