Knight and damsel

 

The first thing one needs to establish is to proceed with caution;

If one does not have a ‘calling’ for this darkest of all Arts

Then one is best to leave well alone.

Do not be fooled by the likes of Twilight or The Vampire Diaries etc,

For there is nothing sexy about this ancient Art.

For it is a basic need and want and cannot easily be controlled

By those unlearned of our ways.

Do not seek a quick thrill in the vampire worlds

But seek life, seek renewal, seek to live and seek to evolve,

Above all seek a teacher, seek a guide, even a sire,

Yet fear not, tread with wariness and caution and everything you desire will come before you when the time is right

Don’t be surprised if we, the old ones seek you out first,

For we know your very thoughts and your innermost feelings; we have known you since the hour of your birth

And we may find you before you find us.

If we invite you in, then graciously accept all that we offer you

For not everyone is offered a door, not everyone is bidden a welcome, a way into our forbidden worlds.

Once accepted in, you are well on your way to learn the ways of the blood.

Forget about the glamour, the mythology or everything you have ever known about our ways

For we have been upon this earthly plain for aeons of time

Yet have always remained hidden within the worlds of men.

Once within our domain you will be invited to partake of the chalice of immortality;

Drink deep and well my friends, savour the red ruby wine of immortality,

Yet do not forget that the chalice; the vessel you lovingly grasp, may be of human form.

Learn not to give in to squeamish thoughts, although one usually finds that at the moment of the rising blood lust this is never a problem.

Once proficient in the basics you will be ready to begin your adventure within the world of humans.

Do not fear for them or be sorry for them; for them it will always be a great honour to be chosen as a life enhancer,

Hence they enter the night time of our desires willingly and with acceptance.

Quest to find your own life enhancer, bond with them and embrace their beautiful gift as often as you need to;

The more you are able to feed; to nourish yourself, the stronger you will become.

Never take the gift of pure energy for granted, drink wisely and learn to cherish and savour every drop of the sacred life force.

Over time you will begin to transcend your human form;

You will be of yourself but so much more so; more advanced and enhanced.

All abilities will become honed to perfection as you embrace our ways;

Your eyes will surely shine with an inner fire and your skin will glow with an ageless radiance.

But think well my friends before you come knocking on our doors;

Our ways are not for the faint hearted,

Or for those kin of humanity.

We have our own ways,

Our own kin,

Our own rules,

Our own houses.

The clans do not take easily to the falsity of outsiders

But once the doors are open and you are proven to be one of the true kin

Then rest assured my friends

You will never ever want again.

Here endeth the first lesson

On becoming Vampire…
