..exist. Really, they do. In fact they have moved into the flat upstairs.
Some time last year the flat changed hands. After a while, when all seemed reasonably peaceful, an awful lot of building work started to take place.
First we thought they were having a new kitchen or a new bathroom. It seemed they were having new everything. The whole flat was being ripped out. Even the tiled floor was being taken up and we were treated to days on end of an SDS drill hammering away.
But eventually peace reigned and the new people moved in.
The days were quiet and tranquil, but then we realised, when we were going to bed – they were waking up.
And then they stayed awake all night. Chattering, laughing, and – whatever else. Around getting up time ie 6am onwards, they fell
into their coffins quiet.
There was no loud music. Fortunately. There were a few loud banging noises, as though they were moving round their
heavy coffins furniture.
One day Partner saw a group of them in the daylight. Pale skin, and dark hair. Rather like Mortitia although perhaps not quite the same build. They were on one of their rare excursions during the daytime.
Clearly when they ripped out all the previous stuff from the flat they were getting rid of any anti-vampire things. Mouldy garlic, crosses, stakes, whatever else that could possibly damage them.
After all who else gets up at 9/10/11 pm and goes to bed at 5/6 am?
Still, as they don’t play loud music, I don’t care. Quiet vampires are preferable to noisy people.
