The Horror of Shakespeare #15 - Cry “havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war.

A fountain pen with italic writing in the background. Over the top are the words The Horror of Shakespeare and the quote 'Cry 'Havoc!''

Every day in October I will be posting a horror/paranormal drabble (100 word story) inspired by a Shakespeare Quote. 
Hello on this rainy Monday, I hope everyone is well. Today I mixed it up a bit, with vamps and werewolves :)

Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the Dogs of War

It wasn't that Justin had anything against werewolves personally, it was just they made such a mess. Yes, pointing them at a target and telling them they could indulge their basest instincts made a definite point.

But there was no way the blood was ever coming out of his lovely cream carpet.

He looked away as his minions did their work.

Sometimes acting as the law in the supernatural community was so tiresome. Being the eldest vampire in the city, however, it was a responsibility he could not shirk.

He was going to have to redecorate the whole office now.

If anyone would like to join in, please do!


  1. Sounds like he should just put in a red carpet.

  2. Once more unto the breach, dear friends,
    T'is time to misquote the bard and generals muddle.
    Domestic fury and fierce supernatural strife
    Shall cumber all the parts of a carpet.
    But soft, here comes a servant to wash it clean.


Thank you so much for reading. I love to hear from people. Please leave your comments below.
