The Horror of Shakespeare #19 - The Better Part of Valour is Discretion

A fountain pen with italic writing in the background. Over the top are the words The Horror of Shakespeare and the quote 'The Better Part of Valour
Every day in October I will be posting a horror/paranormal drabble (100 word story) inspired by a Shakespeare Quote. 
Good evening, running late again today, sorry. Today we have vampires again :D

The better part of valour is discretion

The crossbow pointed at her heart made Henrietta think her night was not going to go well.

"Prepare to die, spawn of Satan," the vampire hunter said.

She just about manage not to roll her eyes. These fanatics were all the same.

"I have never had anything to do with Satan in my life," she said, "and that's a very long time."

Just as she was about to move there was a 'schtck' sound and the hunter fell over, looking comically startled. She couldn't really miss the small dart sticking out of his neck.

"You're welcome," said a disembodied voice

If anyone would like to join in, please do!

  1. Satan himself, who grieves at heart,
    So many of his shadows deny his rule
    And not the very devil that protects his own.
