I learned a long time ago that there was no such thing as enough security. No matter how much I prepare, I would never be able to stop the people who wanted to get to me. No, not thieves and would-be muggers. Not even home invasions. I deal with supernatural threats, and they’re not scared off by an alarm system, bars on the windows, or even a foot-thick sheet of titanium.
Sure, I have the home and office consecrated so they can’t just barge in, but doing anything more than that won’t really stop them. Firepower isn’t a deterrent, either. I could stock up with automatic weapons full of the ammunition that would stop them, gear up with mystical talismans and charms, but it wouldn’t make a difference in the long run. There’s more of them than there are of me, and they’re infinitely more powerful.
How do I stay alive? The same way the ant does. Don’t get noticed, and don’t get underfoot.
