Fatigue


*** 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 currently taking a few days off work because of fatigue. Working in the day and sleeping at night is unnatural for any vampire and I have a social life to maintain on top of that.

We can sustain it for a while; then the effects take their toll and we make mistakes and fall asleep at desk or in the club.

There are some who would condemn me for taking these days off; I take less sick days than most of the humans I work with because vampires do not get sick.

We are not like humans who can adjust to working at night and sleeping in the day; we have to dance to the tune of the night.

The night has other effects on us : we are stronger, faster and our senses are much sharper than in the daytime.

Our hearing and sight are especially increased and most Old Vampires say that blood tastes better after the sun has gone down.

I have been informed that it is the same for New Vampires. It is not surprising as although we would like to deny it they are still the same species as us.

The sun seems to weaken us despite our protection from it. I perform better in Committee meetings which are always held in the evenings, than when I am at work. It is a draining, unnatural force we do not need.

I can sense when the sun goes down even when I cannot see it. I am invigorated at sunset and have the life I need.

We do not know what does this. It cannot be the Moon as it rises in the daytime as well as the night.

Werewolves I have seen and observed seem to be stronger and faster at night as well, so this is not confined to vampires.

A human would do a study on sight in Old Vampires : we know who and what we are and do not need any proof.
