I am kind of embarrassed that you noticed my teeth. I’ve even filed them down a bit so they wouldn’t be so obvious.
But, anyway, to be clear, I am not a vampire. I am actually a vetala. Vetalas are serpent-like vampiric creatures that have adapted to appear human. So that’s why in the photo I’m wearing a cardigan sweater to cover up the serpent scales on my chest.
I sedate my victims with venom and feed off of their blood over a number of days, usually killing them by the fourth feeding. While I am eating, my snake-like eyes and four pointed fangs tend to be exposed. I can’t help it, it’s an involuntary response.
Just, FYI, I can be killed if you stab me in the heart with a silver knife and twist it, at which point I will revert to my true serpent form — whether I’m wearing a cardigan or not.
Just curious, you don’t own a silver knife, do you?
Thanks for reading my post, Atomsk, and also for invoking the city of Zion from the Matrix movies. How awesome was that trilogy?!
