The world of vampire horror stories is a dark and mysterious one, filled with suspense and terror. It is also a world filled with survivors. People who have been attacked by vampires and lived to tell their tale.
One such survivor is Sarah Martini, who experienced a terrifying attack while in Romania. After being turned down for a ride by a stranger, Sarah decided to take a shortcut through the woods. That was when she encountered a vampire. Though it was a terrifying experience, Sarah managed to survive. She wrote about her experience and what she learned in the process.
First, Sarah learned that vampires are not invincible. As much as we’d like to think they are, they can be killed like any other creature, although it requires more effort and preparation. You need to be very well-armed, perhaps with a wooden stake, garlic, or holy water.
Second, Sarah discovered that vampires do have some weaknesses. They can’t enter a home without an invitation and can’t cross running water, for example. This means that protecting oneself from vampires is possible if you are aware of these vulnerabilities.
Third, Sarah was shocked to find out that humans can be converted into vampires. If a vampire bites a human and feeds them their blood, the human could become a vampire too. Since vampires need to feed on the living, the only way to stop this from happening is to prevent being bitten in the first place.
