TITLE: Homeschooling Slayer
GENRE: Adult Vampire Satire
Dee hated getting bitten right before the kids’ math lesson. The vampire had taken her by surprise in the bedroom, and now she felt one fang sink into her neck as cold hands gripped her shoulders. Trapped against the dresser, she leaned back as far as he could to stop the other fang from gaining purchase. Her hand shot up between her blouse and her attacker’s chest, jabbing thumb and forefinger into the soft part of her attacker’s lower jaw—hard enough to damage and hopefully shut down the salivary glands.
It was too late.
The enzyme that vampires released to facilitate blood flow hit her bloodstream, and she felt it shoot up into her brain. Light-headed, she could still make out the kids’ voices in the living room.
“Stop touching me!”
“Mom! She touched me first!”
Not the children. Not ever. The strength she needed flooded her muscles. Dee arched her back, clearing her hips far enough from the top drawer so she could reach down with her left hand and tug it open.
Her fingers plunged past a scarf, dug through thick underwear, then got tangled in the more lacy stuff hidden underneath, searching in vain for the feel of hard metal. The vampire lunged to match her motion, straining to get the second fang in.
Dee squeezed his neck viciously, crushing cartilage and tendons, wondering how much time she had until the trance would start. She felt a tendon snap beneath her finger.
