A Little Night Music
“It gets dark so early.” The salesgirl locked the music shop door and turned to her last customer.
“I vould like an electricical pipe-organ.” The pale man spoke with a strange accent. “But I have no electricical.”
“No problem.” She anticipated an easy sale. “These keyboards are battery powered.”
At midnight, organ music shook her awake. A red-eyed window in the upper story of the old house at the end of the street winked.
She went into the night to put a stop to the noise, neglecting to wrap her muffler around her neck. Minutes later, she regretted this oversight.

My first novel, Just Like Gravity, is due to be released at the end of October. It’s a paranormal romance/adventure kind of thing. If you’ve enjoyed any of my Friday fictioneering, please follow this blog for updates.

Poor vampire, struggling with modern times. Nicely written.
Red-eyed window! Great.
Dear Sorchia, OHHHHHH, this is Good! Love it. Creepy Good! Nan 🙂
Oh dear, it’s very very Vlad when dat happens. Great story Sorchia. 🙂 LHN
Aw, bless him, trying to move with the times. He just needs to get some “electricical” hooked up and he’ll be bang up to date!
I don’t think her muffler would have saved her 🙂
But is he a neck biting vampire or a midnight organ player (did that come out wrong?). Either way still an intriguing story.
Uh oh. Sounds like a neck biting vampire on the loose. Red-eyed window caught my eye.
Happy birthday and Shalom,
Oh no. She should have known better than that. I love the accent, and the red-eyed window.
Ah.. those pale fanged men– do not know if mufflers helps though
