Incidents


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

We Old Vampires deal with incidents more physically than you humans.

Recently I had to injure an Old Vampire in the prison where I work because he was trying to corrupt me. I would be lying if I said it was not a pleasant task.

Mere brawling is unusual among Old Vampires, where we settle differences with a fence, but at times I have needed to assert my superiority over someone then and there. I make the lesson quick and painful.

If we meet New Vampires both parties will retire out of the area. Neither would give ground to one another, so this is a safe compromise to avoid exposure of us. Sometimes this is forced to clear an area for a third party.

We often end up brawling with Werewolves, but there is no need for a cover up as it looks like we are fighting a large dog.

Werewolves will search us out for a fight. This is because we Old Vampires pride ourselves on making it a fair fight, unlike New Vampires.

Neither party is obliged to agree to a fight but we do this because it’s fun to let go. Any damage to either party will have healed by the next morning.

Unless humans are prey we avoid fighting them, even to the point where we will turn and run from them, usually disappearing into a cloud of bats when convenient.

If we did fight and it did not end up with the human’s death we would end up in custody, which is embarrassing for them and makes work for me.

We try very hard to avoid contact with the Human police, not just because The Hunters will be slavering at our doors, but because we think it is best to keep the prey away.

It feels very uncomfortable when prey are posing questions to us and demanding answers, even more so when a light is shone in our eyes.
