It was an extraordinarily beautiful day; the kind of day that most people would enjoy. Not that I didn’t enjoy the sun, myself; really, I did. But true to my nature, I preferred the evenings to the bright sunny days. Today was different though. I had plans today, and the bright sun and cool breezes were perfect for what I had in mind.
As I stood in the window of my bedroom, the multitude of prisms hanging from almost invisible threads caught my eye, and I smiled as the thousands of tiny fractured rainbows danced across my skin. There were a few things I liked about the day that the night didn’t hold for me. Moments like these always made me smile. The myths humans had about my kind were often misled; this one especially. Not once in my five thousand years had I ever burst into flames just from standing in direct sunlight. The thought made me laugh.
It was a joke amongst my kind. Not that I spent a lot of time with my kind. Vampires were rare in these parts, and those who were close by rarely crossed my path. I was dangerous, even to my own species. Don’t get me wrong. I am not vicious, just dangerous. Being one of the oldest living vampires also makes me one of the most powerful. Even vampires fear what they do not know, and therefore, they stayed away from me as much as possible.
