It is an odd story. Most people are probably aware by now that I have been involved in metaphysics for quite some time. I also used to sing lead for a
couple of rock bands. I met Christine at the end of my rock and roll phase.
One night I met this girl at my favorite bar hangout, I was there so much I had my own table. She came up, introduced herself and sat down. We talked
for an hour or so and then she invited me back to her place. We spent a couple of nice, but for me anyway, rather average hours together and then I
I saw her the next day (middle of the afternoon which kinda shoots the whole vampire thing) and realized pretty quickly that there was no future in
seeing her again. We just had nothing in common and existed in different worlds to say the least.
That should have been the end to it, right after that I got involved in a relationship that lasted 13 years and got out of the one night stand
business entirely. But it was not the end, it was only the beginning of a very long drama. My friends started to report that she was showing up
looking for me (she had my number but claimed she did not). She made a friend that was looking for someone like me (the MetaTeacher, not the vampire)
and brought him over. We hit it off and within a short time he was living with me as a Student.
This little event was the start of the Stalking phase. For a couple of years thereafter she would call when she knew my girlfriend was at work (knew
because she cruised the parking lot where she worked, and yes by this time I was a little worried about what might happen) and I kept her at bay with
small talk and short conversations.
Along the way she had decided that I was a vampire, and began this whole wierd lifestyle that included sleeping in a coffin (and no I am not kidding,
the pics in the book are quite real). When she arrived with the guy who was to become my Student she walked in with Fangs! Attached by a Dentist, and
quite impressive if you are into that sort of thing. I am sure I disappointed her by not being happy about the fangs, but such is life.
Then all of a sudden it just ended. She made a final play to separate my girlfriend from me (it failed but caused a lot of heartache on both sides)
and that was the end of it, or so I thought.
When the book came out I heard about it rather quickly, it has the names of a half-dozen of my friends in it and they all wanted to know what was
written about them. When I finally read it I came away with mixed emotions. Granted most of it is untrue, but it was not as bad as it could have been.
One of my friends threatned to sue if she had made him my 'bug eating Reinfield', but I told him that job went to someone else and she had not made
any 'bug eating' references.
On a happy note, I did see Christine not that long ago. She walked up and said hello at a movie one day. I chatted with her without asking her name
because I am somewhat used to people I do not really know knowing me. In that sort of case it is not nice to admit you do not know who they are. She
told me she was married with a couple of kids and was happy. I said that was nice to hear and we parted. It was only about 30 minutes later that it
finally clicked with me who she was! She must have had the fangs removed because she no longer has them.
I think what happened was a combination of a couple of things. She had a dull life and wanted to be special, being the 'victim' of a vampire made
her special and she ran with it. She also had no understanding at all of metaphysics so she assumed that when I mentioned it I was talking about big
'spooky' stuff that goes along with vampires, black cats, and the boogyman. I think some of the little psi stuff I sometimes do without thinking
probably got her wondering about me.
90% of her story is untrue, a couple of the events did happen but not at all as she described them. But I think it does show how people can be
attracted to the 'lifestyle' for reasons that are pretty average even if the results are anything but.
