Drabble: Murphy’s Law by Lizz Shepherd

The vampire saw the slight woman in the alleyway and knew she’d be an easy meal. It wouldn’t take much to overpower her and get his fill. She didn’t seem hesitant or afraid when he got close to her, but many of his marks were intoxicated and didn’t realize the end was coming until it did.

He noticed the hint of a smile on the woman as he grabbed her. She lunged at his neck just as he lunged at hers. Both of them stopped and looked at each other.

“Not again,” he said, shaking his head as he walked away.

Author’s Note: Since vampires look like humans, this probably happens more than they’d care to admit.
