Rhapsody, state of elated bliss or ecstasy. Nereza (Neressa) is a girl who could not understand the meaning behind these words. Being cursed with a drunk father, and a mother who died when she was young, Nereza has known only her dreary existence. Having very little time for fun, or the friends to have it with, the idea of bliss is very foreign. Damon is a vampire who has had lifetimes of grief. Losing every woman he has ever loved, his heart has grown cold and dead. The closest thing to bliss he can find is when he feels the last drop of someone's life sliding down his throat. When their two lives collide, life as they know it shatters. They struggle to move beyond their past and to find love; to finally be able to understand, and to feel rhapsody. This story is rated mature for it's mild cursing, violence, and gory details.
