Fairies


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

For the first time in a long while, I saw a fairy. They tend to keep themselves away from everyone these days, although they still do steal children, for what reason I cannot imagine and delight in playing small mischiefs on humans.

We merely exchanged nods and went on our separate ways. As long as I can remember, we do not get involved in their business and they do not get involved in ours.

I suspect it is because we are too close to humans, pretending to be them as we do.

They have been very clever; presenting themselves to the moneyed Victorians as cute, pretty, harmless beings when the peasants knew that they are capable of killing and maiming humans.

In reality, fairies are as harmless as your average cat is to a mouse, although for some reason they do not look on humans as prey.

Since fairies are misunderstood by humans, they can carry on with their mischiefs unhindered, although the local population usually knows how to counteract them.

The killings and maimings have happened when humans have been foolish enough to disturb their dwellings or maim one of their people, which is why it is still bad luck in Ireland to cut a lone thorn tree or disturb a fairy mound.

They protect what is theirs from all comers and practice the art of being unseen, so could be a serious problem to us if they chose.

So we give burial mounds and lone thorn trees a wide berth and are careful not to disturb them.

Fairies are considered a sign of good luck by Old Vampires, especially as sightings of them have gone down in the last century.

We hope that this will be reversed, but since humans now travel by car when they used to travel mainly by foot, I doubt this will happen.
