Erika said in a low tone, “I think the wannabe vampires just cover for the real ones. Stupid to make yourself a target.”
Max nodded. “But the Shifters…”
“I’m not sure I ever met any Shifter.” Even in the lunchroom, especially in the lunchroom, they were whispering.
Six Sentence Sunday excerpts from Erika and the Vampire continue in the month of July. Look for more discussion and reviews of the New Vampire Story (the vampire genre post-Twilight).
Sounds like a strange world to be living in. Great six!
I like the fact that they were whispering, gives the piece tension!
Whispering in the lunchroom – at school? it’s an unfamiliar term to me – and about such peculiar subjects. You’re constructing a very perilous world.
yes, the lunchroom a very scary place. Anything can be frightening given the chance…
And I bet they were overheard, even if they’re whispering.
I imagine if any such vampires, wannabe or not, and Shifters were anywhere nearby, you’d certainly want to whisper. Just in case. Erika makes a good point, wannabe vampires would be great cover for real ones. And when they get taken out, it’s like the warning to be careful. Always love your vampire sixes.
Whispering sounds like a good idea to me.
