Boredom


*** 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 seems that boredom is a problem for New Vampires and many kill themselves merely because of ennui.

This is not a reason for ceasing to live. Everyone gets bored from time to time but most do not kill themselves because of it.

Instead we would find new activities, involve ourselves with new allies or make plans for old enemies which may or may not come to fruition.

We walk into the sun because we have had enough of life. I cannot contemplate it myself, but I have talked about it with other Old Vampires who have lived for a long time.

They have walked into the sun because they felt that they had seen and done it all. That is very different from being bored.

We Old Vampires can rise above this as we have things to do and to be. An indolent life is not for us, we live for the fun and the pleasure of it all.

We do not get bored unlike these New Vampires. We have our interests and our passions. We have the hunt, the chase, the thrill of it all; New Vampires spurn this as an old way of life and say it cheapens their race.

Considering how very few of them make any money at all, I do not see how they can get any cheaper.

The problem with New Vampires is that they have nothing to do all night but lie around in their horrible little hovels and drink dirty blood.

As long as they do not go on a rampage through the human population in their boredom, they are not my problem.

If they attacked Old Vampires, the Old Vampire in question would be within their rights to deal with it as they saw fit. I may get a complaint, but it would be filed in the bin.

The other reason for walking into the sun is loss of Status; if you have been in prison and therefore sunk so low that no-one will consort with you.
