Christoph wiped off the coffee table pausing periodically to spray more Windex. He did this until the table was spotless, brightly showing the reflection of the light on the table top. He sighed and looked up at the news, reading the ticker tape and waiting for the more recent events.

There was a bang at the door drawing the vampire’s attention immediately. His large blue eyes focused on the door, but there was no more noise. When Christoph turns his attention back to the television, the front door swings open, crashing against the wall with a loud clatter. A man dressed in all black storms in, he’s holding a black Smith and Wesson.

“Kommen in die Hölle, und ihnen sagen ‘Ich komme’.” The man says before firing off the gun. The bullet pierces Christoph’s chest and seems to explode upon collision. Christoph falls onto his back and lets out a whimper. Continue reading It Was Someone I Knew

Ryker waits outside Uptown Funk leaning against the wall as the rain pours. There’s a cover over the alleyway, one that was put in after the bar installed their new outdoor speakers.

Mikhail sighed looking at the time, he was supposed to get off from work half an hour ago. Normally, he wouldn’t mind but Ryker and him rented a bunch of one-night movies. He was supposed to be home to watch them. He always felt rude blowing Ryker off, because he always complained about them not doing stuff together.

“Charles, where is my cell phone,” Mikhail asks throwing up his hands in frustration.

Charles pauses his conversation with Jane and looks him up and down for a moment. “Attitude?”

“I was supposed to leave three hours ago… Of course I’m pissed. Serve some of the damn customers!” Mikhail stomps his foot angrily and Charles points at the liquor shelf.

“Your phone is over there,” He drawls before turning back to Jane.

Mikhail sighs before walking to his phone and picking it up. Out of the corner of his eye, he sees a man staring at him. “Can I get a drink?”
