Outside, the cloying thickness of mouldering food mingled with an almost tangible damp smell all alleyways seemed to have.
As soon as the door to the cafe creaked to a close, I moved fast – so quick, in fact, that she never even had time to look shocked as I clamped my hand over her mouth, pushed back her head and tore a great chunk of flesh from her neck. The smell in the alley masked the coppery stench of blood as I sunk my teeth into Stacey’s throat.
I was almost too greedy as I drank from her. The Hunger overwhelmed any humanity I had left. I would have killed her, I’m sure, had a noise at the other end of the alley not stopped me.
Someone was clearing their throat. Polite, as if it was rude to interrupt.
I couldn’t see the person who stood there. The far end of the alley was all formless shadows and darkness. But the voice was both feminine and familiar.
“Robert,” it said, “this really isn’t appropriate behaviour.”
I’d already guessed the identity of the person who sent that anonymous text and who had agreed to meet me at the Cafe, so a woman’s voice came as no surprise.
I was wrong.
About the Author
I’m Lucy Eldritch and I write paranormal-horror-urban-fantasy-vampire fiction set mainly in Manchester (the one in the UK, not the one in New Hampshire) and London. I also love red wine, but I suspect that’s not really something I should mention. Not professional. Something like that. So, consider it un-mentioned.
