I have new neighbors. I met them a month ago when I was celebrating my birthday and having a huge party at our community venue. They just happened to be strolling by and popped their heads in, and me, being a social butterfly, flew out the door to make new best friends, and enticed them to come back later and join the party.
Since then, I have been convinced more and more that they are, indeed, vampires.
(I’m not going to refer to them by name, I’ll call them Benny and June.)
First, they are very gothic in appearance: pale skin, long dark hair, extremely good looking. Sexy even.
Second, they are
creatures people of the night. Honestly, I have almost never seen them in the light of day. One exception – when I invited them to lunch….I’ll get to that later. There never seems to be any action on their property until at least late in the day; usually after dark. Most of the time I’m just getting home from a class – well after dusk – and they’re pulling out of their yard. They claim it’s because they’re musicians and living the musician lifestyle that they’re up late but…I dunno. Seems to me that many musicians I know venture out into daylight.
Also, Benny has even been doing renos on his huge gothic-looking house….INCLUDING changing a gigantor window – after dark. Who changes a window after dark? In fact, who does house renos after dark?? VAMPIRES!!
In addition – they sometimes disappear for days at a time. Sure, they say they’re on tour, and their social media accounts support this, but even the Cullens had to leave for several days in order to feed.
Third, they are so charming. Especially Benny – and maybe that’s just because he’s a dude and attractive, but they are so charming. When they ventured back to my birthday party last month they were even kind enough to bring a gift. Whatt??? And Benny had his dark hair slicked back and was rocking a black leather jacket. Charm, style, goth = vampire.
Benny is actually kind of mesmerizing. Again, maybe this is because he is a dude.
Not really Benny
June is beautiful, with her pale skin and long black curly locks; but Benny is mesmerizing. I just stare. (And giggle.)
Not quite June
Fourth, I haven’t seen them eat anything. At my party they did not indulge in the food service (and who turns down gummy worms?? My bartenders even indulged in the gummy worms!), and when we went for lunch, June didn’t touch a thing. In addition, we went for sushi and, tho Benny did have a roll, it was a fish roll of some sort…raw fish. Raw. Meat. Vampire. On top of this, the photos I’ve seen of Benny drinking have all been of red wine. Hmm, red wine or…..blood??
Halloween is right around the corner and I am not above popping over there on October 31 to see what.is.up.
*Note:. Although all the above events are accurate, the indication that my new neighbors are vampires is in jest. Somewhat. They are quite lovely. For vampires.
