A man in a black robe observes a pair of twins playing in the garden of their house. Jane, the older twin, seemingly paralyzes a butterfly trapped in a small cage. He then introduces himself to their mother and makes acquaintance with the twins. Jane finds him particularly intriguing. The man disappears without a trace right after, to the horror of their mother.
Years later, the twins have reached adolescence, but the villagers have grown fearful and hostile towards them because of their gifts. One day, Jane and Alec walk home after playing. Jane wanders off alone to pick flowers for their mother, then three local boys brutalize her, causing her to lose control of her power and consciousness. When she comes to, the boys are nowhere to be seen and she is covered in blood, with no recollection of what happened.
The villagers accuse the twins of harming the missing boys and decide that they must rid the village of their wickedness. That night, Jane and Alec are being burned at the stake while their mother is murdered, trying to save them. Jane, consumed by hatred and anger toward the villagers, begins to slip out of consciousness due to the burning pain. An unexpected sound of horrified screams snaps her awake, and she and Alec see all the villagers suddenly slaughtered before them and Aro, the man in black from years before, appears before them. Jane grins at his appearance.
The scene ends with Aro rushing at Jane and biting her. Her eyes, fiery blue before, turn to red as her conversion to vampirism begins.
