Friday Fictioneers: A Tale for Halloween

three_chairs

Come nightfall, I’ll slip into one of those three chairs.

At first, people will think I’m a pretend vampire, outdoors enjoying Halloween. Then some youth dressed as a ghost will say, ‘Hey, cool outfit.’

And his lithe girlfriend, kitted out like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will compliment me further. ‘Spooky makeup and classy fangs.’

These hot-blooded revellers will fit the two empty coffins back at my crypt to perfection.

Would you care to join me?’

In life, I was a gambler; so too, am I in death. The street light. The window. Will they notice too late that I’ve no reflection?

      This is the first complete vampire story I’ve ever written, so I’m really glad you liked it.

      In a lengthier comedy fantasy story of mine, I did mention a vampire on passing. On that occasion, he was a misfit who went out in the sunlight and kept waylaying passers-by, asking them to bite him!

      All the best
      Sarah
