Welcome to my self-indulgent location for the stories (good and bad) that I can't prevent myself from writing. All comments and criticisms welcome. I post on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

A Slayer, a Vampire, and a Zombie Walk Into a Bar...

Janet Reid's running a contest until about midnight tonight (time zone? not sure).  The entry must be 115 word story beginning with "A monster-slaying governess, a vampire librarian, and a professorial zombie walk into a bar..."

The prizes?

Are we sensing a theme?  Gee, I wonder why all these folks walk into the bar together.

Well, who doesn't love Zombies and Vampires and Slayers, oh my?  So, I thought I'd give it a shot.  I'm not in love with what I wrote, but... *shrug* I had to try.

For your entertainment:

A monster-slaying governess, a vampire librarian, and a professorial zombie walk into a bar, taking a booth by the door.

The governess sipped her wine.  “I can’t allow you to pursue your plan.”

Bored, the librarian stirred her bloody Mary—extra bloody—with the finger skewer, an olive stuck to the nail.

With a slurp of braiña colada, the zombie replied, “Aw, loosen up Janey-baby.  When we work together, we eat half the people.  We’re economizing.”

“I don’t know why you come along,” the librarian said, “when all you do is criticize.”

“It’s my job to protect…”  The slayer slumped over.

“Wow.”  The zombie checked her watch. “That took forever.”

“Let’s get started.”

Thanks, Michele. This was fun.

Boonsong, all good stories need a little extra alcohol :)

LTM, you're gonna give me a big head! Thanks :)

Jules, glad you enjoyed it. I need to make my way over there myself.

Michelle, thanks. I really enjoyed working on it.

Summer, thanks. But if you could imagine an incapacitated slayer, plus a vamp and a zombie in a populated bar on Friday night... well, I'm SURE they're there just to go dancing :) LOL

You didn't give the name of the bar. It sounds like a place to avoid ... for us normals. Well, I am kinda normal ... for a writer that is.

You did a great job, Roland

Roland, ha! Sorry. I'll have to do some further investigating so I can warn the general populace :)

Jemi, thanks. I hope so :)

DEZ, yeah, the only thing that sparkled about this vamp is her personality!
