An Unreported Affect

As I stared at my own reflection in the window, I took pity on him. Of course, he didn’t reflect anything at all.

“It must be frustrating,” I said. “Stuck like that.”

“You have no idea,” said the cloud of vapor. “I cannot feed at all, yet I can still feel the hunger.”

At one time, the thing would have killed me, but it remained harmless while still sick. “It’s a shame no one knows how your kind are affected. How long are you stuck as vapor?”

“No one knows. It’s not like scientists are studying how COVID-19 affects vampires.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    I’m afraid the vampires will be last in line for the vaccine.

    No reflection, no vaccine. Besides, I doubt vampires would be able to pronounce the name of the vaccine… Bamlanivimab.

      I thought so. I mean, drinking somebody’s blood is a sure fire way to get whatever they got. Who knows how they are affected by humans diseases. Thanks for stopping in!

  6. Hah! Maybe the vampire could eat real food while it’s stuck as vapour? (Except steak. That gives vampires heartburn).

  7. Dear Eric,

    By golly, maybe it’s not a cure for the virus but certainly a way to render vampires ineffective. Well done. ROFL (Nope, wasn’t drinking…no spew 😉 )

    Shalom,

    It’s not truly funny, I suppose, but I had to smile at the idea of someone feeling sorry for a sick vampire :). Clever take on this prompt.

  12. Surely they’ll get vaccinated if they feed on a vaccinated person. Unless of course there are side effects. Nice piece

    I wondered when you said it cast no reflection but thought naw it’s a vapor. Little did I know that even the undead are affected by it!
