This is more of an odd occurrence than anything else, but here it goes.
This is Utah, Salt Lake and I doubt it is sighting, but I know of the " sub-culture" linked with vampires that you can find almost anywhere, if you
Anyway, I was at a large multimedia store browsing books, I also happen to play D&D so I was going through that section as well. I was also looking
at at Vampire the Masquerade material as I was planning a possible trip into vampire territory in a game, but the game mechanics are far too much
disimiliar and I abandonded the idea and put the book down after perhaps 30 seconds.
I then went to the other side of the store, about 60-70 meters from where I had been. Also, where I was, was very "out of the way" so to speak.
You couldn't see me, not that I know of, except for security feeds of course. Anyway, as I start looking through the DVDs for a movie to get, the
area "employee" came over and asked if I needed help. But, it was a lot more than just asking if I wanted help
He speaked very haphazardly as though his mind was "caught off guard" all the time. Very anxiety driven, but with intense purpose, and force, He
saw my D&D book and asked if I played, but here's the ;thing. He mentions the Vampire the Masquerade book, of course I don't have it anymore. Now
I know that Vampire the Masquerade has it's own VERY driven community. So much so that the wannabes go to great lengths to make you want to believe
they are vampires (as they play this "little" game), and even more of them that are willing to go to physical altercations and psychological
manipulation to force this perception upon people that get involved in this culture. So I "played" the "game" back with him, perhaps that is why
he stays so long, eventually, as I'll mention further down. But, I assumed he was using me as a pawn in his, "I'm weird, so guess what I'm a
vampire--I also somehow knew secretly about a book you looked at and I'll keep on this topic for awhile, to keep you: off-guard". But, I knew about
the sub-culture and it's dangers, but I've dealt with with people that have pulled guns in or around me, so...
I know these guys are in every major city in the U.S.. If you haven't heard of them don't be surprised, they are actually secretive--unless you
play that game. It's a calling card. If there are real vampires mayhaps they hang around there, as I DO know that these people can be AS dangerous
as the local gangs (remember the part about guns being around me, well that is just part of my experiences) I was around in my teenage years.
BTW,I am a little atypical. Perhaps that may have been a lure as well, I make friends easily--I don't even have to try. Just be myself. Idon't
know if that could be part of this, but as we are sharing, I thought I'd give just a bit of reasoning for maybe why this may have occured if real.
There is a LOT more that could explain it, but that is a HUGE story (when I was 10 I woke up in the middle of a sleep over and I was sleeping on the
floor; I was laying next to the bed and could see under it--I noticed two smal slits, like eyes, looking or pointed in my direction, whatever it was
it was next to the wall about 6' feet away; I thought it was two lights from the warerbed's heater underneath the bed and so I thought nothing of
it--till it blinked at me; I was too scared to really react normally so I rolled my back to it and tried to go back to sleep--I was in a room with
four other people, safety in numbers right; disclaimer, I do get sleep paralysis).
As for the guy that talked to me... He dogged me for 10-15 minutes, I nearly got the manager--that is also when he left. If I had to psychoanalyze
him on the spot, he was schizophrenic. But, I can't get over the way he kept pressing me to join him, and "them" for an outing--he really wanted
me to join them. ...And that he mentions something that I have no idea how he knew about it. He was gone from the store entirely one week later. I
even asked about him, they didn't know who I was talking about.
I can find them RIGHT now, if I wanted to, but I don't. Why? Because, they are dangerous. Human or vampire. When you cross the line from reality
into fantasy and can't see the difference you are destroying the one thing keeping you sane.
As I said an odd tale, but not really a sighting. BTW, I could almost draw a picture of him if I needed to (I'm an artist to boot), I have EXTREMELY
good memory. His speech pattern was consistent with other schizo-types I've met and he may have gotten fired by the time I got back, as he did
pester me for ten minutes.
OR, did he know about the book--the calling card--and for some reason I piqued his curiosity. Then as he realized somehow I would tell his manager,
he cut the conversation. I could seek them, but for now I don't want to, D&D is good enough.
Why is always so weird with the role-play/LARP crowd...?
/long first post, I hope it was worth while...
