Six Sentence Sunday — My Fair Vampire #2

Welcome to my fourth “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might leave me.

This six, like last week’s, comes from an urban fantasy novel I completed a first draft of last summer, book 1 from The Land Of Enchantment series:  My Fair Vampire.

Our heroine, Dori, is a newly created, but incredibly inept vampire.  Her sire is nearly ready to stake her himself, she’s been so difficult.

In this scene, Dori’s just delivered a tongue-lashing to Donovan, after discovering the despicable truth behind his latest training technique. Donovan responds:

You can just climb right down off your high horse, sweetheart, because guess what?  Whether you like it not, you’re now at the top of the food chain with the rest of us.  There is nothing dishonorable about doing whatever it takes to survive.  My job is to teach you how to do that in a world that doesn’t embrace us with open arms, doesn’t want to know about us, can’t know about us.  There are no fast food joints for our kind.  Hell, there’s not even a 7-11.

Be sure to check out the host site, Six Sentence Sunday, for links to more tantalizing snippets from some very talented writers.

    • Thanks, Angela! I have quite a few nods to the movie sprinkled throughout. The whole series will follow Dori’s transformation into her new supernatural self–it’s gonna take more than one book to accomplish such a tall order. LOL

  1. So Dori’s been “properly reprimanded” this week after her rant last time? I still think she’ll prove to be more than Donovan can handle. Great Six, Claire, as always!

  2. hehehe! omgosh, I totally laughed at the 7-11 line. I love how you incorporated that, because it sets that “real world” tone yet also highlights their plight – there’s no ‘convenience’ to being a vampire (in the food sense) ;D Excellent six, I like your writing style and I would *definitely* read more! ^_^

    • Thanks, Julie. I think I threw up about 7 chapters of the novel on Scribby, and this particular scene in a longer form on my blog before. I’ve always loved Donovan’s little soliloquy of chastisement…especially how it ends, which is not in this six, of course.

    • Thanks! I’m glad you like the name. I was self-conscious about it for the longest time and wanted to change it but could never come up with anything else. Now with the other planned stories, I absolutely won’t change the name.

I'm dying to know what you think?
