AtoZChallenge 2020 - Vampire Drabbles


Greetings fellow AtoZers and other visitors, I hope we are all well for day 3 of this wonderful blog challenge. My word for the vampire drabbles today is 'cure' and this is what popped into my head. I very much hope you like it.

C is for Cure



Lawrence sat and watched as the horizon began to lighten, gaining a golden tint.

"Lawrie."

He did not turn, even though he could hear the distress in the voice.

"Come inside, please."

"I can't, Issie," he replied. "I've tried everything else, this is the only cure left."

She did not reply. Thinking he had won, he returned to watching the dawn.

"This is suicide."

Now he looked up, because she was right beside him.

"Go inside," he insisted.

"You die, I die," was all she said.

He glanced at the fledgling sun once before dragging her through the open door.

Have you ever just sat and watched the dawn?

  2. What a great drabble... 100 words jam-packed with setting, characterization, conflict, and intensity. Well done

    I'm a huge fan of writing/reading micro and flash fiction. Feel free to stop by and check out a few of my tiny 'A to Z' stories at anjelacurtis.com.

  4. It takes such a talent to pack a complete story into so few words. I used to have an inverted sleep cycle, so I was awake as dawn broke many days.

    1. It is a beautiful time of day. When I was a teenager we used to drive down to the west country on holiday once a year and we always went over night. I remember watching the dawns from the back of the car.

  5. Live together and die together...till death do us apart! The cure was too costly, I feel. Wish he could find some other cure and continue rather than accept this fate.

  7. You jump, I jump. The reworded Titanic line! It keeps coming up in my life lately. Funny I'd see it in blogs, too. Very cool. Good luck with your A to Z.

    1. Is this where I have to admit I have never seen Titanic? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Maybe it's making people feel safer to know they are not alone?
