Well, reading everyone else’s experiences with vampires here (and some that thought that they might be modern vampires) I might as well tell of my reasons for believing that I could be a “modern vampire”. As a side note, I would like to add that this is all 100% true, whether you believe me or not
Several traits of mine are similar or the same as those listed under distinguishing features; I have the dark coloring (pale skin,dark hair and eyes that admittedly go lighter in the summer), My canines are longer than anyone else's that I know, and are sharper with the top canines being more fang-ish than the lower ones.
My skin tone never tans, and yet doesn’t burn, unless under extreme conditions, and even then not that bad (not like I’d want to find out how a horrible sunburn feels. I never really go outside much, although that might be chalked up to laziness, and when it comes to garlic I actually quite enjoy it, when in powder form. In solid garlic, I tend to avoid it in foods.
But, here’s my big thing; Water. I actually have a small phobia of being completely under-water, and have never wanted to learn how to swim, nor do I know how to this very day. The one worst way for me to die, in my opinion, is to drown. Funnily enough, I actually can go into pools and such, but I only go into the shallow end. Anything else and I get scared, and demand to get out of the water at once. I can’t even take showers first thing in the morning because then I’ll feel weak, nauseous, and have my vision start to fail. I have to get out of the shower when this happens or risk passing out. My very lungs start to squeeze in, like a big hand or something is trying to suffocate me (do remember that this is all true. I can understand if you have hesitations trying to believe me, but this is my way of describing things). I can barely even get my thoughts straight.
Blood, in my opinion, isn’t scary at all. It’s not quite the horror feature as some people make it out to be, to me. It’s actually quite pretty, in a way. But I would never drink it by the buckets
As an added side-note, people have been acting as if hypnotized when I speak for extended periods of time, like if I was reading an excerpt from a book. When I finally finish talking, they act dazed for a minute, and then continue on as if they were never dazed at all. Another time, or times, is that I have seemed to display ESP or precognition at times. I correctly guess answers to everything, thougt that could be numerous coincidences, and sometimes, though rarely, have a sort of voice in my head that speaks what the person I’m listening to says a split-second later.
One very strange time, and one of my friends was a witness, was that when I was changing for gym, and horsing around on the benches even though the teacher expressly told us not to, I slipped on the bench and almost fell. I was falling in a manner that might have possibly gotten me injured as I landed, but I then felt a strange twinge in my heart, there is no other way to describe it, and thought desperately ‘Don’t let me fall!’. Immediately, I felt as if time itself had slowed down massively, and my legs folded under me so that I would be falling in a sitting position, with my legs tucked under me, and floated gently down back onto the bench. Me and my friend were staring at each other in mild fright and wonder, before exclaiming loudly how freakish it was. I asked her if she saw it, and it turns out she did as she said she saw me falling, as she said, “Really slowly!” The rest of the day was quite uneventful, ending with no other incidents.
So, what do you all think? Am I or am I not a modern vampire?
