Creatures of the Dark

They saw her walking down the dark street- beautiful, lissome, pale, long-haired….alone.

They looked towards each other with glee, and started following her. Sensing their presence, she immediately quickened her pace….but so did they.

She started running….they followed suit, till finally, she found herself at a cul-de-sac.

“We’re seven, and there’s no one around,” said their leader.

She looked around, and seeing no one….took a superhuman jump towards the first dwarf….and as she buried her fangs into his neck, Snow White said, “And that is why we vampires venture out only in the dark!”

    That was an unexpected twist. Good job.

  3. LOL. You had me ready for a body in the dumpster not a twisted Snow White biting into some dwarves.

    Great twist on the fairy tale elements. I like the results! Well, not the results in the story, but how well you crafted the flash.
