I started to travel internationally. First the UK, then the Continent, and, as I mentioned, behind the Iron Curtain, although that wasn't nearly as glamorous or exciting as you might assume. I was relatively scared the entire time. I wanted to get back out as soon as I got in.

I went back to London and met a girl who had escaped from Poland. I understood just enough about her plight and her flight to be a little bit more empathetic than the rest. We hit it off until we didn't.

Later, in Germany, I met her for coffee. She was visiting friends. I was simply vagabonding.

"I feel like things could have worked out between us," I said.

"Yeah?" It was half question, half agreement.

"You gave up on us pretty fast."

"I gave up on you?" It was definitely a question.

"Yes, don't you remember? You said, 'You wouldn't trust me again.' I remember thinking, 'That is not really your judgment call to make.' Besides, I care less about that kind of thing than ever."

"Well, I still do."

"Interesting." We stared at our coffee and changed the subject.

I sometimes wonder what happened to her. Of course, she's dead now. She grew old, I hope, and just like everyone else in this world, succumbed. Now here I am, 124 years later, caring even less about "that kind of thing."

    Wow Just read part 1 through 9 right now. Excited for this series to develop. I don't read things that involve vampires so this is all new to me.

    One thing I do know about the vampire is that they can't be in the sunlight right? Is Kipper immune to this?

      @abrahamKim Thanks! And yes the joy of vampire writing is you can pick and choose what rules apply. I will get to that at some point. :)
