Friday Fictioneers: A Tale for Halloween


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?

    • Dear Rochelle

      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


  12. ha ha! my kind of creepy!!
