Chapter 1

Ah how I love The Black House, fun and debauchery abound.  Every Friday I come and my dastardly actions always go unheeded until I’m well gone.  I have my own little nook where I secrete myself with a book until some interesting or exotic bird of the female persuasion catches my eye.  I never actually read the book but I find if you frequent any bar book in hand you are left in relative peace except for a few snorts of derision now and again. 

I’m going to stock pile a few whiskies, so I can survey my prey without showing my hand too early.  The bar man is used to my appearance so doesn’t flinch at my pale skin any more.  He doesn’t even attempt the petty small talk just takes my money and nods.  We have a little arrangement where if I see something I like I let him know and he in turn lets me know what the object of my desire’s chosen tipple is.  I often wonder if he knows but he never lets on.

If I just wanted sex it would be so much easier, as that’s what a lot of people come here for, but I have a taste for blood, pumping, flowing, blood.  The exhibitionist in me needs the little scare that this may be it I just might be caught, ah the extra thrill of fellow drinkers breezing by as I indulge my taste-buds.  I have been known to get too excited and have to retire to my little nook to remove skin from my fangs and replace their covering veneers.  No, before you ask I am not a vampire, I paid a fortune in dentistry to get my fangs, just so.  I won’t die if I don’t get my fill just fester in boredom and misery.

Ah, now she looks interesting, nice and petite, I thought the big-boned girls would have a meatier taste at one time, but I was wrong, all that fat and extra flavours just gets in the way of that glorious blood.  I tend not to waste my time so catch the bar mans eye so he’s aware of that she’s drinking.  Ah how ironic it’s a Bloody Mary, love it.  I gesture for him to pour me a double Bloody Mary and it’s sent over.  I pop in my little pill and am ready to go.  It just makes them a little drowsy, I’m not doing any harm, but they never have the will or energy after partaking to stop my suckling.  They’ll explain away their cut in the morning thinking the sex got a wee bit energetic and will be too ashamed to mention to anyone a one-night stand.

She accepts my offering with elegance and we retire to my little nook.  The lump she takes out of my neck is sure to leave a scar and those fangs are real.  The bar man acknowledges my terrified yelp and pops a little pill in my whisky apparently I suckled his niece on his night off.  Revenge is always on the menu in The Black House.

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...

Subzero Dragon: Wow, this is intense! You cranked up the heat from the word go, and kept me wanting more even when the ending tied everything up so well. I read it all in one sitting, and your strong style doesn't falter one bit throughout. I think I liked this even better than some of the "big" authors' works, ...

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view. It would be interesting to read more about these two - and the ghost-busters that inf...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...
