#VSS365 May 2019

A bit late, but here are my May #VSS365 posts! I’m linking the original Twitter posts to the prompts so you can see where I actually posted them. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it earlier, so I’ll go back sometime and update my previous posts. Happy reading!

Prompt: Cadence
Date: May 2, 2019

There was a cadence to dying. No matter the melodies preceding the final chords, it always ends abruptly. And he relished in it, enjoying the final measures with his fangs deep in his prey’s neck. Feeling the last heartbeat. The last shuddering pulse.

Prompt: Lithe
Date: May 15, 2019

Not every vampire had a lithe figure like in the movies. They were all shapes and sizes, trapped in the form before their transformation. Normal.

But werewolves changed. They grew muscular and lean, their bodies adopting athletic forms. Always perfecting.

Prompt: Chimera
Date: May 17, 2019

“So if we’re part human, part something else, then what are we? Chimeras?”

“No. I’ve met one of them. Nice bloke. Looked like hell. Knew how to party. You don’t know how to party. You’ve got the looked-like-hell part down though, a different kind of hell.”

Prompt: Susurrus
Date: May 21, 2019

He waited, straining to hear any warning sounds of her approach. A low growl, the susurrus of her fur in the breeze, the sharp crack of a twig beneath her paws. Death was coming, and he planned to be ready for it.

Prompt: Predator
Date: May 24, 2019

“Do I smell different now I’m a vampire?”

“Like death and decay.”

“That’s not fair. You don’t smell like wet dog.”

“I’m your predator. If I smelled vile, you’d know I was hunting you.”

Prompt: Instincts
Date: May 28, 2019

She’d accepted the blood drinking long ago, had come to terms with her predator instincts and gained control of them. Her only regret was watching her loved ones age and pass away into an unknown where she could never follow.

Prompt: Patch
Date: May 30, 2019

“How come vampires never wear eye patches?”

“Another one?”

“They don’t like pirating from other fantasy genres.”

“That’s it. We’re never hunting at open mic nights or comedy bars again.”
