A/N: Not much to say about this one-shot. Doubt you want to hear it anyway.
Summary: She raised a trembling hand to her pale face, her eyes wide in horror as she realized what kind of monster she had become.
She was cold.
That was the first thing Natalie knew when she woke up from her long sleep.
She had been put into a coma after being struck by a drunk driver, over two months ago. The doctors didn't believe the fifteen year old girl would make it out. They believed her to be doomed to be stuck in an eternal sleep until she died without ever blinking her eyes open to see the world again.
Natalie tried to move her limbs, only for them to scream in protest; the muscles were unfamiliar with the movement, and despite the pain coursing through her body, she felt different from before.
She felt stronger, faster. And as she blinked her eyes to get used to using them again, her skin boiled in the sunlight.
The rays streaking through her room's windows burned, and she wobbled her way over to shut the blinds, shivering. She didn't understand; why was she cold? It was the middle of spring, for goodness sake.
There was another problem, too. She was thirsty.
This thirst was residing in the back of her throat, and it wasn't for water. It was primal, animalistic in nature.
Natalie touched her lips, surprised at the dryness of them, and she walked over to the sink to splash some water on her face. And that's when she saw it.
The mirror above was dusty, with several smears on its surface. But that wasn't what caught her eye. It was her reflection. Or rather, lack thereof.
She didn't have a reflection. She was cold to the touch. Her skin burned in sunlight. She raised a trembling hand to her pale face, her eyes wide in horror as she realized what kind of monster she had become. Natalie really did die.
And in her place was something evil, something that would suck the life out of people in order to survive.
She was now undead.
A/N: I should say that this is actually a preview for something I'm working on next. Just wanted to get this little thing out to see what I'm working with.
