These children have no appreciation for the subtlety of the old ways. They flaunt what they are for the whole world to see, confident in their invulnerability.
Books and movies make them bold. Humans love vampires for the moment. Revere them. Want to be them. But that will change. It always does.
Eventually, the fear will outgrow the worship as the humans realize the true risk they face from us. They will turn on us. The careless will be weeded out. It is only a matter of time.
And for the cautious predator, like myself, there is nothing but time.
