Chapter 1

My name is Victoria Milford.  According to The Sunset Heat, a local newsletter, I'm "The 24 year old, dark haired, sexy part owner, of the Sunset Strip nightclub; ‘Climaxes’."

We serve drinks and we have live entertainment on the weekends.  On weeknights, 25 year old Harry Edelstein is in the D/J booth.

Around 9 P.M. on a Tuesday night, business was slow.  Less than half the tables were occupied.  The recorded music blared, but not loud enough to drown out any conversation.

I was seated at the bar, going over some paperwork, when a guy sat on the stool beside me.

"Evening Victoria."  He spoke cheerfully.  "Can I buy you something to drink?"

He was Jake; a mean looking dude in his late 20s, wearing a black leather jacket.  He had a firm build and curly, light colored hair.  He'd been showing up almost every night, for the past two weeks, with a ditzy blonde chic named Roxanna.  She also had a mean look to her, but neither of them had caused any trouble.  Tonight he was alone.

"Thank you Jake."  I told him, "Maybe you haven't heard, but I'm part owner of the Club.  I'm the one who buys drinks for customers.  Not the other way around."

"Then I'll have my usual."

I said, "That was slick, but you're the one who has to pay for the drinks first."

Then I asked, "So where's your girlfriend, what's her name?  Roxanna?"

"She's on ice."

"'On ice'?"  I said scornfully, "You mean you haven't broken up with her, but you're now on the prowl?"

"That's partly correct."

"What part?"

"When I said 'She's on ice', I meant that literally.  Right now she's hanging upside down and naked, inside a freezer, with the lights off."

I laughed.  "If that's what dating you leads to, forget it.  I don't mind a little bit kinky, but risking death..."

"That wasn't a joke Vick."

"Yeah.  Right."

"You see, our employer doesn't take any lip, from any of their employees."

"Don't you think that's kind of excessive?  Every now and then, I have to give somebody a good talking to, and that's enough."

"I said I wasn’t joking.  We are employed by the Legal Department of Vidamort Corp.  Our employer enforces Company rules, in a way that we employees never forget."

I said, "Legal Department?  You don't look like a lawyer to me; and Roxanna just doesn't seem like someone who could pass any kind of a bar exam."

"Roxy and I aren't lawyers."  He told me, "She and I enforce company policy, in a way that our clients never forget."

I said, "Enforcers?"

He said, "Vidamort Corp. wants me to explain Company policy to you Ms. Milford, in a way you'll never forget."

I looked at Jake's face.  That night he looked more than mean.  He looked dangerous.

I told him, "You get out of here right now, or I'll call the police."

"Go ahead."  He told me, "I'm sure they'll be interested to learn about the time, when you pretended to be pregnant by a married man, who you had a fling with.  You then got him to pay for a fake abortion, along with hush money.  The law calls that fraud and blackmail, for which you can do an unhealthy amount of jail time."

I told him, "You can't prove that."

"Vidamort Corp. can, along with providing evidence of your involvement in a murder."

"Murder?"

"Maybe more than one."

"What's this all about?"

"We know for a fact, that you allow gambling and drug dealing inside this club, with you getting a percentage of every transaction."

"Oh I see." I said, "And your employer wants a percentage too."

"Meet me outside, in the parking lot, in 15 minutes," he said, "and be sure you come alone."

15 minutes later I was out in the parking lot, with a loaded pistol in my handbag.  Jake stood beside a car, at the dark end of the parking lot, furthest from the street.  I came over to him.

He opened the front door on the passenger side, and told me, "Get in."

"Forget it Mr. Tough Guy.  I'm not getting in a car with you."

"All right cautious lady."  He shut the door. "Stand there."

"Good enough."  I told him.  "Now tell me, what's the deal?"

"You're a very bad girl Victoria."  He said, "I come from Sangreville, which is full of very bad girls."

"Sangreville?  Vampire Town?"

"Now you’ve probably heard the saying, ‘If you’re a bad girl, the ‘something’ will eat you’; and do you know what happens to very bad girls in Sangreville?"

"I've heard that the ‘something’ that kills and eats them is vampires."

He said, "Exactly."

Suddenly his arms were around me.  He pulled me up against himself, and put his cold mouth against my neck.  He had a pair of sharp, heavy fangs, which he stabbed inside my neck.

Then my mind vanished.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

Megan Loan: I've never before had the pleasure to read something so unique. It was so captivating, and so unexpected. I was surprised by the protagonist and the idea of a pizza shop becoming a post apocalyptic delivery system. Good plot and amazing story telling. There could have been many places for the st...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.
