Incident: I went to a friend's house to pick up some books and to study a bit for an exam. My friend lives in the old part of the city and in the winter there are no students on the streets and no parties. There are many old buildings near the university; some of them are abandoned.
While I was walking alone towards my car I had the feeling that I was being followed. Initially, I assumed it was my friend trying to scare me, so I went into an alley and waited for him to pass by. I waited for five minutes but there was no sign of my friend or anyone else in the street.
I decided it was only my imagination, but on the way back to the car I had that feeling again and them I turned back and stared at the black of the night. It was too dark to see anything, so I called out into the dark to see if someone would come out, but there was nothing. With no response, I kicked the window of an old house and punched a door and said some stuff like we see in the movies, "come and get me punk," stuff like that, and I continued my way.
When I got home I told a friend and he said that it could have been a vampire! I would like to know what do you think? I doubt I would have scared a vampire.
Comments from Dr. Pecos: It's possible you were being sized up by a vampire. The situation has all the trademarks: a person walking alone late at night in a desolate part of a city with abandoned buildings. However, it's not enough to warrant an investigation. If you had shown up at an FVZA office with this story, we would have sought corroborating information (missing persons reports, other incident reports, etc.) before launching a foot investigation. Nevertheless, if you're in this area in the future, exercise caution and don't walk alone at night.
