“GOODBYE, MY FRIEND,” Fiacha Cael whispered as he stood beside the
open grave staring at the closed casket. It was the same routine over the
years and centuries. He hated being alone and longed for his childhood days
when he could simply be at peace with his friends, playing. When the
change had first hit him, he remembered the pain and fear that he had felt.
His friends had become snacks or meals to him. The thought of feeding
from them left him horrified.
It was so long ago that he had said goodbye to his family. He had to say
it to everyone he had ever met or cared for. Thank God for technology. Now
the depression he suffered from wasn’t quite so overwhelming. For years it
felt like darkness was beating at his soul. Had all of this happened because
they were truly awful people deep down on the inside? Had they brought
this hell upon themselves? Maybe he deserved this grief year after year.
Today, Fiacha was burying Paul. When he’d found him on the streets of
Dallas in 1927, the boy had been abandoned and starved. He took him in,
gave him shelter and provided everything Paul would ever need in
exchange for friendship. They played checkers, backgammon, Monopoly,
and Atari over the years together.
Every child Fiacha took in reminded him of himself when he had been
on the run. Each needed a stable home and the friendship that came with it.
The needs were always the same with each person. Helene, Jamie,

Francois all needed shelter, and Fiacha provided it. They were his extended
family and he buried them in a private plot behind his home over the years.
Fiacha never fed on any of them.
The thought of drinking their blood
made him ill. He was a pathetic excuse for a vampire and grew faint at the
sight of blood. As he looked at the glossy black casket, he lay a rose on
each of their graves in remembrance. Their smiles, their laughter, and their
tears over the years had made the bleakness of his situation bearable for a
Now what would he do?
He remembered taking Paul for his first pint when he turned twenty-one
and the pride in his eyes as he got his first car. Fiacha considered them his
friends, but they were more like the children he would never have. He knew
the end was coming near for Paul and had pushed it away from the forefront
of his mind – yet here he was saying goodbye again.
Fiacha tossed the last two roses he held in his hand from the dozen he
had brought to the graveside service. He’d buried eleven friends over the
years and it broke his heart. Things were so different now; times were
Long ago if he wanted to bring another person into his home, he had
only to walk the streets. Hunger, homelessness, and overpopulation for
