1 Shade of Amber

Friday Fictioneers entry for the week.

______________________________________

“Really, Naomi, just leave it and someone will return for them.”  Cylene took the ink pen from her mouth, pointed toward the decorated mug and sunglasses. ”  She returned pen to mouth.

Naomi hissed. “I know, for your information, I was more concerned the table is not clean.”  Cylene was unconcerned about such things.

The truck stop door tinkled, both looked as a god entered.  He was about six two, 30ish, flowing hair, and built.  Naomi and Cylene tensed pleasantly.

“Ah, there they are,” he whispered, reaching for forgotten items.  His hand brushed Cylene’s; she blushed; he noticed.

Their eyes met, Cylene let some air escape her mouth, pen falling.  He took her hand, leading toward the bathrooms.  Cylene never glanced at Naomi, but he did, barely.

Naomi saw meadows and starlit pastures.  After a second, shaking her head, reached in her purse, pulling out a small, long,pointed wooden object.

She wasn’t certain those were fangs she saw, but never hurt to be careful.  She headed toward the bathroom as the door finished closing.

A Mere Reflection in a Mirror

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Josef stood in front of the looking glass that was hanging in his living room. First, he felt around the edges, then he got some cleaner and cleaned it thoroughly. When that did not have the desired effect, he sat on the couch and began thinking, hard.

He paced and shook his head, put his fingers on his chin in that proper thinking position. Nothing good came to mind. Tears formed in both eyes.

Finally, he stood up straight looked in the mirror, gathered all the courage he could muster, and said, “No reflection. Guess she was really a vamp!”

“Bits of Life”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

He thought of his collection as he danced with her, holding her close, smelling the blood.  A pink baby bootie to remember the pediatric nurse, Selena, and an etch-a-sketch for Belle, engineering student, were two of the many souvenirs he kept in the large shadow box hanging in his quaint, Victorian kitchen on the West side of town.  People commented on his pieces (by people, of course, he meant other such as him) and he was allowed long discourses on favored ones.

The music stopped.   She said she wanted to be alone with him.  Ah, such a pretty hair pin.

Holiday Feast

By Scott L Vannatter

“Oh, how I hate the holidays!” thought Trevor.

He looked down the street.  The lights bothered his eyes and played with his vision.  Things were not clear.  The halo effect and the shimmering was simply more of a problem now than the rest of the year.  He looked ahead and saw the lone man standing holding a package.  He liked them thinner and younger and, well, female, but…

“Beggars and all that,” he finished the idea almost out loud.
“At least, he’s too big for me to lose!”

He managed to keep his fangs protracted as he began the hunt.
