Reader Report: I myself is a vampire
"Yes, vampires are real," reports Moka. "No they don't catch on fire in the sun light nor sparkle like a million diamonds. I myself is a vampire. We are just as friendly as humans. I don't go around killing people. I do drink human blood. Iam sensitive to the sun and it does hurt my eyes. Vampires love the night, yes it's true. We don't hate garlic. I eat garlic just fine. There's many of us in the world hidden. So yes. Vampires are real." I reprinted Moka's note, just as I received it. It's surprising to me how all of the "real" vampires I hear from seem to be semi-literate or sound suspiciously like teenage kids.
