Hunting Humans


*** 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 have cursed humans I have hunted who have evaded me with cunning and the use of their wits.

They were few and far between and I respect those who can do it, but must leave them alone through fear of exposure.

If I could I would hunt them all down as I fear what will happen if they breed humans who can evade us.

I suspect the ones who are able to evade us enter their Police service, who caught me trying to obtain information on them. It was well done and I am now more careful around known Human Police. It is realising who is and who isn’t Human Police that will be the challenge I relish.

While Andy, the Human Police representative, cannot do anything to us about the ones we hunt who get away, if they come to his notice myself and the Old Vampire in question will be given a hard time. We do not relish answering questions in a vampire-proof room.

The restrictions placed on our hunting these days are galling and they have added more and more rules throughout the years. On the other hand, it gives us freedom from the mobs, so it is not too high a price to pay.

We chafe at the lack of freedom to hunt whomever we want whenever we want and answer no questions.

As to the ones who we are successful in hunting, it chafes Andy that he has to cover it up.

We try not to involve him too often and usually take those who would not be missed, but now and then one of us makes a mistake.

It is difficult to judge who the important humans are these days. We still avoid anyone dressed formally as these were important people.

Unfortunately important people these days can also be dressed as riff-raff and since there are more people, it is difficult to keep tabs on whom is whom.
