From Phoenix Serenade Scans: A Cinderella story with a twist!Esther Mayfield is a normal sixteen year old girl in 19th Century London. Except, ever since she was a little girl, she could see 'ghosts'. She lives in a small part of town and sells flowers to earn a living. She thought that she would continue to live like this forever. Until, one day, a handsome young Count appears in front of her. And he wants Esther to be his bride? Is he really the Prince Charming she has been waiting for?
A sudden shock---
With this, you will be living as a vampire
Your second life of happiness will begun!
Did he realize that she's done it?
What kind of a thing have you done!
It's because Esther is a very kind girl, so...
I want her to be happy
Hold on yourself!
I'm sorry it's such a late night
She was stabbed
Please save her
There's a separate clinic to be used in case of emergency
Why does it become like this...
I want to borrow your hand as a previous surgeon
I beg you to save her
my own life
Prepare for recovery!
Please ask this to the clinic in the village
search for someone in the village who can offer blood transfusion
I will be the one going for it
Earl, please keep stopping the bleed!
If you don't hurry
it will be a battle against time!
How is it?
...For now, the treatment is already done, but her bleeding is bad
This is the state where we don't know what will happen next
Have you settled things properly with that woman?
It's already daylight
For now, Monica is sleeping
You should kill the vampire who go out of the way without forgiveness, shouldn't you?
If someone kills while thinking of the partner, then it won't be a sin?
This time is a special case
She did it thinking for Esther's sake. So why did she do it...
What's the reason for that
That unsure feelings of egoism, between a human who kills vampire or
the vampire who kills human in order to live
which of it is following a vampire's way?
Think carefully, King
This is the time you should decide
This is Esther's skirt, right?
Even if she doesn't say it
I already thought she would walk around bringing this
I'm very loved, huh
That's something you gave to Esther?
I didn't think I would use this quickly...
I want you to insert this to Esther, though
This is the drug to suppress the change of becoming vampire
You already complete it, huh? Then, why are you...
If Esther die like this, then
Inject this drug
that will be a goodbye for a lifetime
Do you have that preparation?
...If she become a vampire
Esther will be killed by the husband she loves
or she will be living apart from the husband who she should be taking care of. There will be two sad choices
I don't want Esther to be walking on that kind of sorrowful path
I want Esther to live as a human and die
I won't let her to become a vampire
I can't be diverted
For that purpose, I was always researching
I am indeed, don't have preparation
But to wish her living in whatever state
is only my egoism
let Esther to have that kind of face anymore
We don't know if the drug will work or not before she dies. But she won't die easily, I think
I believe that
Esther will surely live
Please live, Esther
Let's live together
This is about that night
That night, I
met an angel---
Did you get hurt?
Esther doesn't become a child too...?
Because my mom is not here anymore...
I will call a doctor
I can't go anymore further
I am "Leon"
Leon! Esther's condition is...
Her heartbeat has stopped
The doctor is giving her treatment right now...
What's arrived, is the scenery on that day--
