THE DEAD GAME
The party at Diane's house was taking a turn to the supernatural. It offered a medley of vampires, human vampires, and humans.
After the meeting, Todd led Linda to a quiet corner. “Please return to the dance floor with me.”
As she spun around the room with Todd, Linda searched for the other human vampires from Oasis. If they were on Todd’s side, then where were they? She wasn’t going to say anything to him about them; he had enough to worry about without her raising additional concerns. And what was a human vampire, anyway? Were they any better than regular vampires? According to Todd, human vampires were still human.
Tired of worrying about the town and its strange inhabitants, Linda said to Todd, “For just a moment
I’d like to believe that this evening is magical and beautiful— all that I’d imagined for tonight.” She leaned her head against his shoulder and sighed.
