I'm participating in Ali Cross's Flash Fiction Blog fest. So here goes my 250 word story, let me know what you think!
It was the party of the year. Fireworks burst in an explosion of color across the inky black sky and hung in the air. Alyson’s excitement added to the chorus of oohs and aahs surrounding her.
It was the most magical Fourth of July of her entire life, but she hoped the best part wasn't over yet.
Gabe, the hottest guy in school, with his fathomless dark eyes and matching wavy hair invited her to be his date for the night. She pinched her arm once more to be sure it wasn't all a fabulous dream. She was sure she was in love.
“Are you up for a walk?” Gabe asked.
“Sounds fantastic.” Alyson smiled as Gabe reached for her hand and laced his fingers through hers. Electricity pulsed through her body on contact.
Did he feel it too?
The flare of emotion flash across his eyes told her he did. His goofy half smile made him even more adorable.
The only thing left to make this the best night of her life would be if Gabe kissed her. She sent up a silent prayer and crossed her fingers that he would.
He drew her into the shadows of a nearby building.
“Come here.” He said in a soft voice. As Gabe pulled her into the warmth of his embrace Alyson’s heart beat faster. His head leaned slowly toward hers.
This was it.
Her eyes closed in anticipation and screamed as his sharp teeth sank deep into her neck.
