#BlogFlash2012 Day 1 Thinking











It's here! #BlogFlash 2012. 30 days of blogs for August, 50-100 words for each one starting with day one; Thinking. I was a bit nervous in signing up as a 100 words a day on a prompt I felt was a challenge too far but then I thought it would be fun and those of you who know me know that I like a challenge. So here it is, my first apprehensive entry in  #BlogFlash 2012. Hope you like and enjoy meeting a character you have recently been introduced to in 'Scarlet.' xx



The First Drink

‘You think too much. This is your new life now.’ Jacob eyed the work Louie had just finished; the neat mark on the woman’s neck as she lay under the tree like she was sleeping. ‘And how did she taste? Better than the filthy rats you feast on?’
‘Forgive me taking my time when taking a life. It does not come easy to me even if I am a vampire. I will contemplate as long as I need.’ He stared at his first human kill, not wanting to admit the thirst he now craved or the conscience he still held. . .

  1. I like the acknowledgment of his conscience, after his first kill. Liked it Lizzie!

    1. Thanks Lisa; i'm sure the conscience won't be around for too long. . . .

  2. Love your name and love this piece.

    I absolutely love working to pic prompts, and freely admit if something doesn't trigger off immediately, I move on to the next one.

    Must say I am starting to get a taste for vampires (no pun intended) and may have a go in the genre when the opportunity presents itself..xx

    1. I got sucked in (again no pun intended) when I wrote Scarlet and wanted to explore the character a bit more. This 30 day flash fiction will give me the opprtunity to do that. Glad you liked. xxx

  3. Now that I've recovered from seeing that beautiful photo (!), let me just say how much I love this piece, and that final bit is perfect! The thirst he craved and the conscience he still held. xo

    1. I think Vampires don't have a conscience so this one may have to continue. Glad you liked and so pleased to have found the photo. xxxx

  5. Fantastic post! I'm so glad you decided to try #BlogFlash2012. Even if you don't post every day, I think it's a great way to get creative and - more importantly for me - connect with new people. Thanks again for taking part!
