Hunting in Cars


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

It has come to my attention that there is a new form of hunting which uses cars.

Only Old Vampires who are keeping up with the latest fads are doing this.

New fads, such as this, may disappear in the next century and the rest of us are waiting to see if they stay.  If the fad stays then we take it up.

I am told that it is very easy to stalk prey with cars.  Most cars look the same, especially if you drive a silver one, so unless the prey is skilled in detecting such things you can get away with the most blatant stalking.

I have not tried this.  I am waiting to see if this fad will last and I cannot afford a car.

Those who hunt like this are usually desperate, so the whole experience is becoming one that People Like Us Don’t Do and in reality everyone’s done it at least once.  A typical English stance.

Other Old Vampires seem to enjoy having a chauffeur who drives them everywhere while they read the newspapers. When it comes time to stalk or hunt prey they simply direct their chauffeur to do all the work.

To catch prey, an Old Vampire will simply run the car off the road and catch prey on foot, where they can outrun them easily.

For many of us this is too easy; we need the challenge of difficult prey unless we are desperate for drink.

Taking the difficult option is a survival strategy : if we only know the easy option we will not survive when the difficult option is the only one we have.

In order to make it difficult the prey would have to have bodyguards or weapons in the car.  Such people are well-connected and easily missed, which makes for an uncomfortable visit from The Ruler’s Men.  I am told that most wounds heal in time.
