I Am One
by Jean Jones
It's too late. I already am one. If you hang out too long with a
vampire, you become one or start acting, or thinking like one. Vampires
are all about addiction, you know, or thinking about self only, whether
with heroin, crack, or sex, and I have become one hanging out with a
vampire for over two years and since she needed her blood heroin
addiction, she fed my addiction, and I became one, a vampire, an addict
as well, or acting or thinking like one. You ask me if I can come back
to you, but it’s way too late for that. I've been fed by up to two
vampires at a time, and I can't come back to you, I can't. I enjoy
friends satiating me, transforming me into a complete vampire, with
nothing but an addict left, wanting nothing more than what you can do
for me for my satisfaction; I am a vampire now.
