Fights


*** 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 been resuming training at fencing, as I have not done anything since my last fence, which showed me that my skills were clearly lacking.

We do not need exercise to keep fit as the humans do; we simply are at our peak of fitness.

However, this does not mean that we have the skills needed if it comes down to a fight.

For example, while training for my last fence I was at first not anticipating my opponent’s moves correctly and it was often a very short fight.

This was the first, but not the only thing that we had to correct; I had to work hard and sleep less for those weeks.

I now understand the reasons for Werewolves and Old Vampires choosing to fight one another.

It is not my style to fight someone else unless it is necessary and since these fights are consensual and no humans are involved I do not get involved.

I understand that the Human Police only get involved when a complaint is made and they simply move them on.

Old Vampires only fight one another in exceptional circumstances; otherwise we would decimate ourselves and The Ruler would have no taxes to collect.

I have occasionally come across or been called out to investigate Old Vampire Servants who are training.

Normally Old Vampires do not go near this sort of thing, but if the Human Police are concerned and have called me I will stay and supervise.

The Old Vampire Servants and I are not happy about this, but neither do we want humans involved.

After a few words with them I usually arrange for a more secluded venue for them to train next time.

Anyone else I would have more than a few words with; however Old Vampire Servants are valuable and not to be wasted.
