Apologies Sir, but could you be more specific? I really didn't see a question, just rhetoricals.
I will however, give you a little snack & wish it appeases your quench at least a bit okay?
When I was 14, I'd still not heard of any kind of Vampire other than Vampire Bats in school.
I had been walking the 1 mile walk from the Curling & Skating Arena. Figure skating. By 10 pm, I reached the local Post Office, the halfway mark.
As well as the 10 minute warm up mark lol!
However, when I pulled out my thermos of tea, I felt the little hairs on the back of my neck.
I honestly felt like prey being stalked & watched. I mean prey as in a possible victim of rape or a kidnap victim. Maybe even a possible victim of
Yet somehow I felt even more creeped out than a possible victim of those 3 things. I still can't seem to find the right way to describe it. I never
wished a place had a customer phone so badly ever before. I locked the glass doors, sat in a corner where I could see out but I wouldn't be seen
from outside. I was drinking my tea wishing an adult I knew & trusted would come to check their P.O. Box. That happened more than you'd think.
I was almost done my whole thermos of tea & sweating under my Snowsuit. I looked at my watch & it was 1020 pm. I figured if I waited another 10
minutes, my now late Mom would send my now late Dad, to come looking for me cause I'd never been more than 10 minutes late & even that was
I admit I was feeling just as sleepy as creeped out by that point.
Now the weirdness.
I awoke. At 1st I thought I'd fallen asleep in the Post office. Till I turned my head & saw my bedside lamp. On. It was 6 am & still dark out. I
thought maybe I dreamt it before the odd dream I woke from which was;
" I dreamt I was walking home from figure skating only I took a shortcut I normally wouldn't have as it was the darkest part of a dying town & most
of the buildings empty & derelict but I didn't want to be late home. Then I saw an odd light in one building that I knew was unlivable. I had to
check it out. I peeked in a window & saw a fire glowing in the old crumbly fireplace, 2 candles at the ends of a long work table, in the center, an
old glass oil lamp. There, was where an odd looking man in a red flannel Plaid shirt sitting on a high wooden stool, wearing a jeweler's eye scope
holding something near the lamp & looking at it very intently. He looked to be 30-35. Sandy looking frazzled hair under that light, cheeks looked
hollow-ish, lips looked big, he had a Roman looking nose but I didn't see his eyes for awhile, his skin looked so pale, kind of yellow & blue light
dancing over his face & long fingers with long nails making him look scary. I felt uncomfortable, thought, " Ok, a loony science old man moved in &
was probably going to be our new Science teacher, who was probably waiting for his electricity, water, gas, etc, to be turned on. I turned to leave
but when I tried to step forward but thought my hood or scarf must've caught on something like a nail. It was the man. He'd grabbed my hood from
the window. He said," Why don't you come in & chat for awhile to warm up & drink your tea with me instead of the at the the Postal Outlet across
It was a statement, not a question or invite. I said okay with the intent to run as soon as he let go of me. Till he told me to hold still so I
wouldn't tear my jacket & he would come out & unhook me from a broken wall hoop meant for electrical cords, hoses, w/e. I wondered how he could even
see it. He was massive. Didn't see that where he'd been sitting.
I was leaving feeling fuzzy warm & sleepy like when I got into my now late Oma's Laudum Brandy. I looked at the ring this old Ian man put on my ring
finger as a gift for chatting with, " A boring old man." I wanted to refuse but he said he'd made it himself, & remember he only moved there for
it's peace while he made one of his jewelry design collection & not hurt his feelings. It was a red as blood, coloured gem shaped into a heart & set
in what I thought was silver. I tried to remove it but it cut me, waking me."
The alarm for school went off at 630 am so I could always have coffee with my now late Dad, in our family business. Dreams already fading...
Until I turned the main light on in my room. My body had on a red flannel plaid shirt on like a nighty. My hand was freshly bleeding, I was wearing
a ruby heart ring on my ring finger, it looked silver. I also had 2 red dots on my neck that were far apart. Not like the movies. I thought they
were pimples as they got bigger , then turned into moles a year later.
My late parents were acting the same as always, not questioning the nighty shirt or ring.
I waited but they never did say a thing so neither did I.
I tried to remove the ring several times over the years & each time it cut & I bled as though the cut was in a tiny vein.
It wasn't removed till 2006 when I broke those 2 fingers by trying to undo a gate clasp & the spring broke.
The ring was cut off. Had it checked. 3.4 K Ruby in a white gold pewter mix.
I gave it to a pawn shop owner friend.
My Grand-mere knew immediately of course & was a tiny bit frightened. Her and Pepe believe because they and their sisters & sisters all claimed to
see real blood Sucking Vampires.
I didn't believe any of them as I guess it's always been illogical to me even though, I'd taken biology & chemistry & was Vegan who tore into one
of my Mom's extremely rare steak, got hives, blisters & wheezing if ate garlic, couldn't tan, just blister, not painfully though, became anemic in
the extreme, & reflection looked slightly transparent , eye colour changed drastically on emotion + few other little gifts, coming back to life a
few times & look 20+ years younger than I am....
I'm not always anemic, no longer allergic to garlic, and have no problem in the bright sun anymore. As long as I wear quality & quantity SPF-UV
blockers , hat, & sun glasses. & no one has run home because my eyes change colour once I got the 1st coloured extended wear contacts....
It is still too illogical that a Vampire is the cause or ring stamp is I.S.I./78.01.
