Zombies vs Vampires, part 20

The girl was calming down, but there was still something wild in her eyes as she stared past Tom and Danielle. The clown was looking in the direction of the three of them, but didn’t appear to be focussing on them. Nonetheless, it took a couple of steps in their direction. The clown stopped, and […]

Note Just a reminder that this is a first draft, and this and the other bus section are amongst the most first-drafty so far. The final draft will give the driver a name, and suitably eighties-pulp style brief backstory, and try to explain how the earlier mentioned traffic jam has cleared up enough for the […]

Terry had never been a fighter. He got angry often enough, but it had only ever turned him into a flail of arms and legs which rarely landed effective blows. It was more effective than his early childhood defence, of curling up into as small a ball as possible, if only because it was such […]

“Sorry mate, love, hope you find them soon.” the cabbie said as Tom and Danielle stepped out of his taxi. “Me too.” Tom said. He stopped a couple of steps away, and turned back. Pulling the last note from his wallet- a twenty- he handed it, and one of his business cards, through the window. […]

They had caught the couple a short distance from the road, falling on them when their shock made them stumble and trip. As the young lovers died, traffic past metres away, none of the drivers or passengers noticing the horror going on so close by. Sated, Glenn stood over Carl and Karl as they ate. […]

“We seem to have left them behind.” Leech said, the smugness back in his voice. “Ah, very good. Now, where shall we go for Terry’s first kill?” The question was rhetorical, of course. The Mistress didn’t care for Leech’s opinion on the matter. He kept quiet, and she considered the answer to her own question. […]

“Sorry mate, they’ve gone.” The cabbie waved his hands around, taking in the whole of the road ahead of them. “Way he took off, like, I say they saw you. What they done that they’re avoiding you?” “We haven’t done anything to them. We just wanted to ask them some questions.”Danielle said, upset. “Running like […]

Salford University campus was quiet. It was past time for lectures and study, but still too early for crowds at the students’ union. So no-one noticed six dead men staggering around. Glenn led them on whenever he could see any of the three towers that told him which way Manchester was. When the landmarks disappeared […]

He hadn’t been paying attention before, as the Mistress went down on him. But now, Terry was beginning to see the variations in all the humans they drove past. Some of it was body temperature, but he could pick up so many little details beyond that. He could sense their heart rates, tell when they […]

Danielle looked out across tent town from their vantage point at the top of the slope. She looked distressed, and Tom understood why. It was the feeling that had overwhelmed him when he had first realised the extent of the city’s homeless problem. He did what he could to help, but it was always going […]
