Beautiful Disaster

She warned me she was a vampire. I still invited her in. I thought she would palliate my loneliness. I should have done my research earlier like she did. Instead, I tried to ignore the red flags and let my defenses crack.

Sweet talk, late nights, deep conversation, and inside jokes embedded her in my mind. I thought I was the man of her dreams, but it was just my imagination, running away with me.

She built me up and drew me in, chewed me up and tossed the husk. I was just another specimen in her jar of hearts.

  1. You can’t say she didn’t warn him. Many of us have a morbid fascination with our own demise. Sometimes having yourself turned into a husk and your heart thrown into a jar is worth it.

  2. I love your description of the vampire’s seduction technique: ‘Sweet talk, late nights, deep conversation, and inside jokes embedded her in my mind.’ Yeah, that would do it…

    1. I guess getting sucked dry could be fun if you’re into that kind of thing.

      For every up there’s a down. That’s life. If we’re lucky the ups last longer and are more enjoyable than the downs are painful.

  3. Poor man. Loneliness made him vulnerable, and she was not a good choice of companion, but I think he enjoyed the ride. The ending is great (not for your MC, but for the story 🙂).

    1. Loneliness can be a great motivator to overlook a lot.

      The end is more important than the poor, tortured MC. I’ve tortured and killed many a character for the good of the story. Thank you.

  4. Gotta watch out for those vamps. I have to tell you, you lost me to music with: just my imagination running away with me and then I read build me up and I thought “buttercup” and then jar of hearts. Ah, well, musical vampires. 😀
