Interview with the Vampire
The story begins in San Francisco on the United States where a vampire known as Louis starts to tell a story of two hundred years of life to a very scared interviewer. The vampire, who is very perceptive, tries to calm down the interviewer. After promising to not to hurt him, Louis starts to tell his story. In 1791 Louis was the owner of a plantation on the south of Louisiana. After the tragic death of his brother, Louis starts to fall on a deep depression and begins to question his existence to point of thinking on suicide.
In that moment makes his appearance a vampire known as Lestat, who convinces Louis to be part of a Dark Ritual which was going to convert him into an immortal and sexless creature which will be feed only with blood. Both vampires live for a long time on the plantation, but since Lestat was feeding himself with the blood of slaves, they start to suspect of the mysterious disappearances, so decide to start a riot. Louis and Lestat burn the house and the plantation to erase every trace that can arouse suspicion among residents of the existence of vampires on Louisiana.
Louis, who used to feed only with the blood of small creatures or animals due to his moral predicaments, finally yields to the influence of Lestat and starts to take the blood of human beings, adapting very slowly to his nature of “assassin”. At the same however he starts to feel repulsion for the lack of compassion shown by his partner, Lestat.
One night Louis takes the blood of a girl he finds next to the death body of her mother and who was affected by the plague. When the girl gets to the point between life and death, Lestat transforms her into a vampire including Louis in the ritual. The name of the girl will be Claudia and she will live the next decades with the old couple of vampires. Louis is terrified with the transformation of the little girl, but with the time he falls in love with her and takes care of her a child and as a lover.
Claudia learns, grows and maturates in an amazing way, but at the same time she hates Lestat for having transformed her so prematurely, although she may have the mind and feelings of a very sensual woman her body will always remain as the body of girl of five years old.
