Drabble: The Snickerdoodle War by Antonio Urias

by specklit

It was at the Annual Bakers’ Convention that The Great Vampire War on Snickerdoodles, formerly waged secretly in the hearts, minds and stomachs of people everywhere, first came to light.

Contrary to popular belief, the vampires’ greatest weakness was not a stake, or cross, or sunlight, but, in fact, the snickerdoodle. Perhaps the combination of white sugar and cinnamon in all its sweet sugary goodness was somehow anathema to whatever dark unholy art animated the dead. Perhaps the universe simply had a twisted sense of humor.

But on that tragic day the vampires came, and they ate all the bakers.

Author’s Note: This one came from a random sentence about vampires and snickerdoodles. Because why not?
