The Party

by Pavi Raman

 

The Dardanellis threw the best Halloween parties in the neighbourhood. They were a charming couple, old school. So of course there were rumours. Everything from unholy rituals to BDSM.

The theme: vampires. Perfect with Paulo’s overbite and Sophia’s pale skin.

Paulo opened the door. Eerie silence filled the house.

“Party downstairs. The basement is soundproofed,” he explained, grinning.

“Kinky.”

“You have no idea.”

“Oh, but I do.”

We both laughed.

I seized him, tore his neck with my fangs.

The body tumbled down the stairs, and Sophia screamed.

I locked the basement door behind me.

This party was just beginning.
