At the age of twenty, she became a prostitute. Needing to keep food in her stomach and a roof over her head, selling her body was the only option.
Almost meeting her demise one night, she is saved by the one man that would use her services often.
Not wanting to see the woman he loves die, he changes her. Olivia is now a demon of the night, Vampire. Demetiri teachers her how to live, feed and love.
And then he abandons her.
