Being half human, half vampire really didn’t mean much to Steve, and never had. The pale skin, the irritation from the sun, the alluring voice, and the blood drinking. They were all a part of him, and it wasn’t like he had a way to change that at all. The town he grew up was small enough that everyone knew everyone, and sometimes more than that. The one thing he never wanted anyone to believe was that he was something more than who he actually was. He wasn’t a monster. Nora wasn’t a monster. And their mother most certainly wasn’t a monster. Humanizing himself and his family was the first step, even if they didn’t actually need it. If things went to hell, which they never did, he still had his sister to back him up. She wasn’t going anywhere.
So he made friends with everyone. Utilizing his social skills and his good looks (or so he’s been told), along with a little help of his supposed alluring voice, Steve did his best to fit in, if not, stand out. Showing that they were just like everyone else, despite being half-vampire. Being the center of attention for who he was as a person, instead of what he was, worked. As far as he could tell, there were never issues with him or his family. On the flipside, the luxury of gaining everyone’s attention has proven to be more than what he wants. There are times where he wishes he could disappear without anyone asking him why he was leaving, or for what reason. The sense of obligation to continue with who he needs to be instead of who he wants to be is causing conflicting feelings inside of him, and sometimes he wonders if it would be easier if he either was a full vampire, and persecuted, or a full human and normal like everyone else.
