Witches


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTION OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

I remember the witches in the past.  They could bring the mob down on our heads if they knew we were vampires, shapeshift to hares and make us vampires ill.

We are immune to illnesses, but a witch could produce illness in a vampire via a spell.  Sometimes this was sought after, to allay suspicion that we were not human.  Sometimes this was the result of a curse.

If it was the result of a curse, a friend or spouse would go to the local witch and force the witch to take the curse off while reminding her or him what would happen if a curse was put on that person again.

This was delicate work, as a vampire would have to do this without revealing to the witch that s/he was a vampire.

People used to know and believe about the existence of vampires.

Thankfully, only a few either know or believe in our existence these days.  It makes it so much easier to go unnoticed when anything out of the ordinary is chalked up to “I must have been seeing things” or “I didn’t really hear that” or simply “it’s not possible”.

This lack of belief started in the Age of Reason in the 18th century.  A small group of men in Edinburgh started to reason through why they knew certain things.  For example, I know the fire is hot because I can feel it is.

Anything supernatural does not conform to reason or logic.  There is no reason why we vampires are so strong or why we need to drink blood.

Today belief is an oxymoron : it is ignored and derided, but people still use it.  For example, people believe in things such as the planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

We cannot look up to the skies and see them with the naked eye or with a telescope, we cannot prove that they exist, so we have to believe they do.
