Fine Dining

A man, middle-aged in appearance but as old as the pyramids of Ancient Egypt, sat before a burning fireplace as the sweet smell of pine wafted in the air. The dark leather comforter he rested in was old and his favorite. The black cup of Nigerian roasted bean coffee he coddled gave off another aroma that tickled his nostrils. He sipped, savoring the delightful taste that rolled over his tongue, and pondered on things most humans would find horrid. Let's take a peek into the mind and dark heart of an immortal:

Most of my brethren and sistern have such shallow palates today, unlike in the old times when we lived to refine our tastes. Hunting was not only about eating for the sake of survival. True hunters display restraint and the mastery of selection.

When I pursue game it is done with the utmost care, patience and skill to ensure I obtain the flavor and texture I desire. I disdain an indiscriminate vampire. To live so long and still chose poorly speaks volumes of one's character.

Sinking my fangs into the throat of a human, I expect a spicy kick, yet look for the substance to be rich and smooth as it mixes with my own blood.

Drink slowly, controlled, and it will revitalize you to the core. Usually there is euphoria, and the new energy acts like a powerful aphrodisiac. However, not all blood is the same. Not all of it has that special "umph" which is why selection is critical. Feeding in the wrong way or on the wrong human can leave us soporific at best, and at worst can exasperate hunger to the point to where gorging takes place and no matter how much blood is consumed, we starve to death.

I hardly stray from devouring intellectuals, or those middle-aged and athletic. They must be bi-sexual, ambitious yet not overbearing. They're even tempered and calculative. The men gray but don't bald. The women haven't a single, silver streak, while their hair does thin.

Really sweet blood comes from those who wear glasses, but not because of a astigmatism or disease. Just slight degeneration due to aging. Blind victims have a butter taste, and clumpy texture.

Those I consume are full of vitality, and are likely to have reached one hundred if not for me or some other ill timed event.

I eat flesh, but not of the ones I prefer to drink from because strangely, their meat is gamy and tort. Predators tend to be the best on the tongue.

The Birth of Cain....the Main Character in "The Novella Series Red Paradise: First Father".

Sitting in my bathtub six years ago, I decided to slink further into the warm water and while there, stare trance-like at the ceiling until I found my self mumbling in a narrative tone.

At first I wasnt even aware of what I was doing. But what was happening was the birth of a character I would personally grow to know as Cain. Cain the trap being beneath the earth. Buried, forgotten, and alive forever to suffer in darkness and despair.

Imagine for a moment the confined state of being buried in a coffin for thousands of years. No, No...consider it for only a single twenty four hour period. The claustrophia, the thoughts of how much time left. The incompacity to move. The musty hot air. Darkness so deep, rich and overbearing, that it absorbs all sound. You are totally alone.

Then consider that twenty four hour period of time, you know it is over but no one comes to free you. Or are they coming? Is the time really up? And you wait, and wait.

Maybe now. Maybe the time is near now. But it never arrives and that is when your descent into lunacy begins.

That day in the tub, that is what came to me, is what I babbled on about.

What exactly makes Red Paradise: First Father, a great Novella is that I break from tradition as far a vampire, engaging in emotionally charged prespectives on sexual preferences and religious views.

Vampire in Red Paradise, also referred to as "kind" for those were of the original race that were turned, developed the religions of the earth to munipulate men and women, and communicate secrets to their kind on how to survive among humans for eternity.

Be of the world but not in the world. They have always been here. They see but are not seen. Hear but are not heard. They are angels to some, demons to most.

They drink from us, eat us, fuck us, all with indifference. Except a few who have a conscious, they hunt those of us considered hunters, killers, rapist, scum.

Cain is the main character, the first son of the first vampire as the story is told. He is misunderstood by others and lost to himself. Alone, afraid, searching, and hateful. Or is he? Why is he?

He is a vampire seeking revenge

Many have asked what has inspired me to write this novella series "Red Paradise"? I can only answer by saying that this project allows me to "Expose the parallel of the Norms". The current state of mankind has developed a quasi perfect society which has been painted in our minds ....We as desire driven beings chase after this perfection as we live in our own parallel worlds. However, little do we know, the perfection we seek is nothing more than a myth that ultimately causes us pain and heartache within. Delete Comment
