An Interview With Ani (The Vampire Sister)
What's the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?

My sister is the most important thing in my life and I would do anything for her. I was created to serve and protect her and that is what I pledge to do. I love her so much and If I saved her life once I wouldn’t think twice about doing it again. I value my sister and my fellow vampire family members. I’ll do just about anything to make sure they’re being well taken care of. Whoever is in the way…. well I just hope they won’t get into the middle of it.

What do you consider your special talent?

I read minds. You would think it would be a little torturous but it isn’t. Man is it useful! Like right now, I know you nervous reading about me. You want to know what kind of bloody secrets I got for you. Maybe, I’ll share them with you. It is a little hard to read a vampire’s mind because they can easily shut me out. However, getting into the mind of a human is a piece of cake!

How do you fall in love? At first sight? Over a long period?

I’ve only been in love once. I don’t think I can love anyone more than I love Diego. We fell in love instantly after meeting in Spain. I’m not going to lie, after our split I’ve been with plenty of men. They’re drawn to me and what women wouldn’t take advantage of that? I’ve never loved another the way I loved him though. I’m convinced now I never will.

When you walk into a room, what do you expect people to notice about you?

This is going to sound extremely cocky and I don’t mean anything by it but, people usually notice how perfect I am. How smooth and perfect my face is (even with no makeup), my black curls are perfect, my nails are always naturally manicured. It makes some people gravitate toward me however; a lot of people are put off by it. I think they’re aware that I’m anything but normal but they just can’t seem look away. I loooove the attention. It’s a perk of the vampire life.

What do you consider are your weaknesses?
Sweet blood and silver. It is a cruel twist of faith that innocent people have the sweetest blood. I try to only feed off of the scum of the earth but you know, every now and then I slip up. Silver won’t kill me but…. how do I say this? It’s my kryptonite! It will render me weak if I touch it, it will give me permanent scars. I’d be just fine if I never saw silver ever again!

What really moves you, or touches you to the soul?
I love violins! I listen to classical music all of the time and the sound of a whimsical violin never fail to bring me to bloody tears. Although, I am forced to stifle those bloody tears because well, it would make for a strange spectacle.

Thanks so much for having me. These secrets will stay just between you and me right? I wouldn’t want to have to do a follow up interview…
