A Vampire quatern

The vampire had another bite; Her victim didn’t wake and scream. She wasn’t hungry on that night, And left him in a pleasant dream. But roaming through the sleepy town, The vampire had another bite - And spat the blood out with a frown: It tasted awful; quite a fright. She hunted swooping from a kite, And landed on a window sill. The vampire had another bite, But wasn’t really hungry still. She’d lost her appetite, she said, And told a shrink about her plight. He shrugged. ‘It’s all inside your head.’ The vampire had another bite… Written 26th April for Andrea’s Quatern contest

hahaha. I just knew this had to be my friend the vampire writer. I LOVED this except I was not crazy for the line where you had her fly in on a kite!! Congrats, Jack. Definitely the funniest of them.

When she felt a little down, she could've just tried a new town. And when she found the need to feed. She would have had more choice to bleed.
