"The Problem With Vampires" is a story in "Tales of the Vampires, Part One".
Prague, 1997, Drusilla has been captured by a human "inquisitor" and thrown into a jail. The inquisitor proceeds to torture Drusilla in a unique chair built for that purpose in 1478. He hopes Dru will remember the pain forever, serving as a warning to other vampires to stay away from the people of Prague. Drusilla tries to recount the things that make her happy, including little girls lost at the fair and little boys wandering too far from home, so that she can forget the torture.
Meanwhile, Spike was lying on the ground beneath a bridge he was thrown from by a mob that shoved a stake into his chest, inches from his heart, thus not dusting him, so that he would flee and warn other vampires to stay away from the city. Spikes crosses the city, finds Drusilla, and kills her captor.
The story takes place before "School Hard".
