I sat with my nose happily in my Kindle. My ghoul friend, Alice, flowed silently beside me.
My trap was set. I kept busily turning the pages with the button, apparently not noticing her fidget. I smiled wickedly.
"How do you wiggle without moving?," I couldn't keep from laughing.
"How do you keep on reading with me in this short skirt and low Gothic Lolita top?"
I grinned slyly, "Peripheral vision is a beautiful thing."
Alice snatched Walter's gift from my hands. "Oh, you!"
She smacked me on top of the head with my Kindle. "Ouch! But hey, the eyeful I got was worth it."
Father Renfield was suddenly by Alice's side. He took VAMPIRE IN THE OUTFIELD from Alice.
"Walter gave that to me."
I smiled wide, "I figured you knew all about vampires, Padre."
His sharp canines showing, Father Renfield glowered at me. "Maybe Walter thought I could do with a few laughs?"
Captain Sam smiled at the smoldering Alice, tugging up her Gothic Lolita top. "I think Victor just gave a few to us."
"To you, men, perhaps," murmured Ada Byron.
She curled an arm around my ghoul friend, making me figet as I remembered her, ah, thoughts on what gender was sexy. "Come, Alice. Let us girls put our heads together."
Alice showed her much too sharp teeth at me. "Yes, payback is a terrible thing to waste."
I groaned. I was always too smart for my own good!
Oh, if you guys want to read VAMPIRE IN THE OUTFIELD yourselves, go to :
Oh, Olivia, Alice, Captain Sam, the Padre, and the rest of us at Meilori's wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. And Wendy Tyler Ryan, you enjoy that jazz concert and get better, you hear?!p>
