The Countess

Updated on September 5, 2012

“Countess! Please hurry, your guests are waiting. What about the new candidates?“ asked her assistant. The Countess motioned to take them to the green room. The Countess slowly walked into the dining room.

She bowed her head and said, “My apologies for my delay.” She gracefully went to take her seat.

She smiled and said, “James, please bring in the food. I am sure our guests are quite famished.”

James replied, “Yes Countess, right away.” The kitchen staff came in with enough food for a glorious feast.

The Countess said, “I hope it’s to your liking.” The guests held up their wine glasses for a toast.

Drinking and laughter filled the room. The room was suddenly silenced, when a blood curling scream filled the air. It was coming from the green room. The Countess motioned for James to take a look. When he returned, he was out of breath.

He said, “Don't go in there. I will summon the authorities." He swiftly walked away.

When the authorities arrived, they immediately went to the green room. The Countess followed. There was a young lifeless woman lying on the floor. It appeared that something sucked the life out of her body.

The Countess put her scarf over her mouth and snobbishly said, “hurry up and get this thing out of my house!”

She then gave a sneaky but seductive smile and said. “Thank you for coming. You know that you will be well rewarded for this.” The officers smiled and carried the body away. She went back into the dining room.

She sighed and said, “I hope that this brief interruption does not detour you from the festivities.”

One of the guests said, “when will it be our turn? You have satisfied our human hosts that we occupy. However, we are weak for the essence of a young soul.

The Countess escorted them to the green room where they found the candidates tied and bound.

She said, “bon appetite!” All of her guests transformed. Their eyes bulged out of their heads and their hair turned into flames.

The Countess sighed and said, “oh how I miss home. Until then, these human life forces will satisfy our real appetite and keep us full."
