Disliked


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

I am not liked on The Committee, but that does not matter. We Old Vampires do not need to make friends with people and the other members of The Committee are not even that.

On The Committee we merely tolerate one another, except that fool of a New Vampire representative, who is trying to be friends with the others.

He invited them “down the pub” last time; everyone made excuses to avoid the event. He will read this blog entry and disbelieve that everyone made excuses, saying that it wasn’t like that.

We Committee members spend as little time in one another’s company as possible and merely tolerate one another at meetings.

If Old Vampires are friends with humans it is only to get nearer to the prey, for political reasons or if they are of any use to us.

The Human Police Representative quite rightly gives us vampires the cold shoulder.

He is more sympathetic towards werewolves; after all, they do not kill humans on a daily basis.

Werewolves do not want to socialise with other races; they keep themselves to themselves, but since they have to work with humans must socialise with them at some point.

I have seen them socialising with humans and they are always poised to run or fight.

They do not like us as we are comfortable with killing humans; werewolves vehemently oppose such things.

I wonder if they are trying to be better than humans; from what I have seen it would not take much effort.

There are no political alliances on The Committee. Deals are done between representatives to ensure that what you want to happen does happen.

When a deal is made, everyone keeps their end of the bargain. If not, no-one would make a deal with you again.
