Three entries in.  :)

We got five.

Now everybody who's entered should pester another entry out of a friend/enemy.

I hate vampires too! It sometimes seems like half the books being written these days are about them. Aren't we done with that yet?

But I do love a challenge  :D and so I gave it a shot. What better stretch than to compose a story about something you normally wouldn't even think of?

400 words you can pretty much pound out in one sitting. I actually had more trouble with the 17 syllable opener than the story itself.

In the end, my story made me smile. What could be better than that! ;) And for that reason alone it was well worth the effort.
