Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
Hey, that is even more appropriate with this week’s offering!
I have broken a promise to myself.
I confess I do not like vampire tales.
But this is dedicated to Rochelle, who sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
She will understand and, I hope, forgive.
The idea is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below.
I hate being a vampire.
Yeah, I know, it looks dead glamorous in the movies, but there are lots of negatives.
I mean, I live in France, and now I can’t go near garlic.
Crosses are taboo, too.
That really depresses me.
I live on the Côte d’Azur, for goodness sake.
Okay the cloak is pretty cool, all that swishing and swirling.
And the teeth are great.
But I can’t fly like a bat, that is just Hollywood rubbish.
And that is not the worst thing.
All that blood?
In my previous life I was a vegetarian.
