Six Sentence Sunday – Turning on the Theatrics

Here’s a snippet from a short story that was released just last week, “Against Our Better Judgment.” It’s a humorous horror story with a vampire and werewolf being forced to work together against an unexpected enemy.

Setup: Terry is going to have turn on the theatrics in order to throw off these Hunters. His vampire friend is now out for the count, so he’ll have to make this show look good.

Terry flicked his hand into a set of claws, and grimaced as he dragged the edges over his chest, face, and arms. They’d bleed just enough to make them look fresh, and even if the main wounds healed up, the blood would still look authentic. He ruffled his hair out once more before flinging himself out of the cave entrance and onto the ground.

“Oh god,” he moaned, coughing into the dirt.

“Oh my, one of their victims – we must be close!”

This story is now available as part of a collection in the horror anthology, Under the Stairs. If you would like to see another snippet from this piece, check out this older post.
