…I think I’d be a very good one.
I’ve already listed the reasons why I like vampires, but now I’m looking into how things would be if I were a vampire. After all, we can be anything we really want to in our lives, we just have to put a little effort into it. Where we don’t need to put a lot of anything into becoming what we truly desire to be is in our imaginations. There we can be whoever we please – and whenever we please it!
So. I’m now a vampire.
I am a special vampire that isn’t allergic to daylight, but I still prefer the later hours. That actually sounds like the human me anyway, so that isn’t such a far leap for my imagination.
I am quite moody… sultry in fact. That sounds like me too… I’m not doing very good with this imagination thing right now. I’ll keep trying.
I wear absolutely amazing clothes, and my body is stunning. Athletic and toned, and, for a vampire, quite bronzed and tanned. My hair looks perfect no matter what I do with it, and I can move like lightning. There we go… I knew I had a good imagination in me somewhere!
I like being by myself, but I do also like being around others. I enjoy flirting and being on the edge, but am very careful not to go over the edge. I say things to cause mild offence, but not to outright offend. I sometimes listen to other people, but tend to do mostly my own thing. I need to have a mirror to look in, not that I’m vain, but just to see how good I do look. I’ve met myself coming backwards now… I’m imagining that I’m a vampire imagining that I have a mirror that I can see myself in, which I can as me, but not as the vampire… anyway, moving on…
I live in a huge mansion with many rooms, and the rooms are on many different levels. I like living in the upper part of the house, but I am also particularly fond of an old room downstairs that has been decorated in a really old fashioned way. There is an old clock in this room that ticks loudl – hang on a minute! – this is one of my other dreams that I’ve had. I wasn’t a vampire in that dream – but I don’t remember any mirrors. Hmmm. I digress. Back to being a vampire.
I pretend to drink blood, but it is really cranberry juice. It just looks good! Whenever I have my photograph taken, I hold my hands like claws around my face to make me look more vampiric, but I didn’t do that on my passport photo, and I love Halloween.
I can’t fly on my own accord, but have been able to levitate for several seconds at a time which has been noticed by other people. This has actually happened to me in real life too when I played football once – I spent more time flying through the air than I did actually standing up because I kept tripping over the opponents. (I’m sure the few who went to watch thought I was flying.) I’m a better vampire than I am a football player.
When I’ve had too much of a ‘certain kind’ of cranberry juice and slept it off a while, I don’t like bright lights then. My head sometimes feels a bit strange, and I occasionally have a little memory loss. Luckily, that doesn’t happen very often.
I like a nice steak every now and then (had to get that one in… being a vampire I have a great sense of humour- I’ve lost count of the number of times my jokes have been lost on people!), and I love to eat out. I can be a bit of a messy eater, but the people I’m with don’t tend to mind. They haven’t said anything to me anyway!
But most of all, I love to have fun. I can’t be doing with being boring, sitting behind a desk all day looking at a computer screen.
I’m back to being me now – the human me, not the vampire. There isn’t really that much difference in the end, only I like the confidence that comes with being the vampire. I may just borrow that aspect of my vampire personality. In fact, I think I’ll imagine me as something else, and see which aspect of that personality I like, and borrow that too. Bit by bit I’ll improve my own personality, which can’t be bad. I think I’ll try being a werewolf next…
