Today I will share just one more excerpt from my unpublished manuscript, The Vampire of Blackpool. This is an exchange between our protagonist, Meredith Hanson, and a vampire hunter she fought with on Blackpool promenade.
“You will not defeat me, hunter,” I said, “I know all of your tricks.”
He stared at me, and I refused to look away under his scrutiny. Instead I stared back, showing him my glowing silver eyes and my gleaming fangs, wet with his blood where I had bitten and nipped him during our fight. He licked his lips, his body tense beneath me. I felt his confusion as his mental barrier began to weaken. My smile widened and I leaned down, my lips a mere inch away from his.
“You want me, hunter,” I purred, “Admit it. You want me to kiss you, and you want to taste your blood on my lips. I know how it works. You are all the same.”
I crushed my lips to his and he struggled to push me away, but not before he opened his mouth for me, and our tongues entwined for a moment. Then he managed to force me back, and I stood up, laughing.
“Mmm,” I murmured, “Delicious. I will leave you to recover. We will meet again.”
Stepping back slowly and licking my lips, I gave him time to scramble to his feet.
