This piece was originally submitted as a comment to Do Vampires Exist? It was so interesting I thought it should be presented on its own:
Boy have I got a story for you guys!
As a male Witch, I am not one to shy away from taboo subjects and events. I’ve had more than a few experiences that could be called “paranormal”; though, it has become such a part of my life I really stray from such a title.
I vastly enjoy taking very long walks at night. On one particular evening I found myself walking down a path in my town, which is only forty five minutes away from New York City, that I have never actually followed before. In all honesty, I had never actually noticed it, but walked past it many times. So, I decided to take it and see where it leads.
The path runs next to one of the elementary schools and goes down into the woods behind it. There aren’t any houses and many people in the town usually avoid the area because of callous superstition and frankly idiotic judgment. the older members of the community all have these fearful tales of things that have happened to them when they were younger, usually involving the work of Satan and Demonic presence. Since I had traversed parts of these woods already, I decided it would just be another adventure.
About half way down the path, my Ipod cut out. I had charged the battery before I left, but fortunately, not enough because I would have probably missed this incredible experience.
I kept walking, pocketing my Ipod and for a good fifteen minutes started hearing almost a whisper, if you will, in the wind. Every time it blew it just sounded like there was someone behind me. Not footsteps or words, just almost like humming. I took it for granted as well as worked up nerves and just kept my head straight and my eyes alert.
Then I heard a twig snap. Maybe fifteen feet away from me, A shadow emerged on my left hand side. I immediately could tell whatever it was had a human form. ducked down, close to the ground, yet looking the other way so I couldn’t see its eyes. Its head turned as this… creature moved into the patch of moonlight it was now standing in. It was a beautiful masculine face. Long black hair, straight, with purple eyes. Not red like has been described before, but purple, almost favoring the blue more than the red. It looked at me, point blank in the face, and opened its mouth. there was no sound, at least, not at a decibel a human could here if this creature did make a noise. It watched me as I moved closer and cocked its head to the side. I didn't feel any fear, or any anxiety. Just curiosity as I do believe it did too. My initial impression was that of a vampire. In fact, I would stake my life on it (no pun intended). I questioned it, but it ignored me. So I kept walking. and as I got farther away, the wind stopped whispering.
Now, I am not sure if it really was a vampire. I honestly don’t believe the horrendous inaccuracy of them being deviant Demons. Rather, more curious alternative life forms similar to humans. I honestly think they are as curious about us as we are them. In all honesty, I think it was confused by me simply because I do dress in a “Gothic” fashion. On that night I had on a black vest with a white button down, and trousers with a white sash. I looked just as much like death as it did.
I don’t know what I saw. If anyone has any sort of theory that would be wonderful. Though, please don’t tell me what is written above. I highly doubt Vampires have a sensitivity to garlic of all things and I don’t believe in Satan or Christ for that matter. I am a Witch after all. For the matter, there are things posted in the initial post that I do believe to be attributes of vampires. Just none of the affiliations and meaningless things like the garlic. So if you want to, include it in an attempted explanation fine. Just please understand it won’t really answer questions for me.
