Working with 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 ***

Working with humans is absolutely vile.  They find ways to shirk duties and disappear off ostensibly on business, but in reality they waste time talking to friends.

Meanwhile, I am left doing all the drudge tasks at work.  I am here to do my job and end up doing the filing.

It is a good thing there are other Old Vampires to talk to, which unlike what the humans do, is part of my duties.

Old Vampires who are in prison cannot socialise with human prisoners.

If a fight broke out, an Old Vampire is stronger than a human and could easily kill, by accident or design.

If it was self defence, the Old Vampire would not be blamed, but it would take some explaining.

Also Old Vampires do not want to socialise with human criminals, as we see all criminals as beneath us.  If an Old Vampire prisoner did not talk to anyone they would go mad.

Part of the problem in my work is that the humans do not wish to talk to me and I do not wish to talk to the humans.

So I do my duties in silence, listening out for any information that could be useful to me.

Often it is, especially if I am around the corner doing filing.  Old Vampires’ ears hear much better than humans’ do, so it is not difficult to know everything that goes on in the department that I am in.

This is how I survive.  By listening to talk and dropping a word in the ears of those I work for from time to time.

If I did not, they would oust me from my place and ask for another Old Vampire to work at this prison.

I would be happy to give up work, but I need the money, which is how I came to be asked politely by The Ruler’s Men to take up this position in the first place.
