And then there was her —Jason’s stepmom. Jason’s real mother had died when he was very young -- auto accident or something gruesome like that. Emmett had finally remarried relatively recently.
Jason called her Carol, and at first I thought she was his sister -- a secret sibling he never mentioned before -- but she wasn’t. Carol had long brown hair and green eyes. She reminded me of Natalie Wood. Carol was a whole lot younger than Jason’s dad and looked like she had just stepped out of the pages of a fashion magazine, complete with a trim figure that was well formed where it needed to be, and graceful. She kept up the house and did most of the driving. Carol worked as a real estate agent. Carol was nice all right, but nonetheless she made me nervous whenever I was around her for some reason. I never knew quite why—she just did.
She was pretty and always wore attractive outfits. Long slender dresses referred to as pencil style dresses were part of the ensemble for ladies in the fifties and the style looked great on her. Sometimes she also wore that period’s popular pleated swing skirts with coordinating tops. There was never a time when she didn’t look nice. One could spend endless time just watching her walk--all the pieces blended together into one coordinated smooth motion.
A gold chain made of small hearts always adorned her neck. The sides of the chain merged together as they descended to where she buttoned her collar, and then disappeared down inside the front of her dress. She never wore it outside. I always wondered about that mysterious chain. She always smelled good, too. I mentally put her on a pedestal…….
I’ll always remember that first day back at school that autumn. The wind rustled the leaves across the campus of Haywood High, stopped only by the old, red brick building that awaited us all for another semester. It was a bright autumn morning as the returning students gathered on the campus in little groups abuzz with chatter. The wind served us admirably, as if to usher us back to that structured existence again after a summer of mostly unsupervised playfulness.

An unusual emotional vampire story. Torn between love and what must be done, an attorney chases after his former lover to thrust a dagger through her heart after he discovers what she really is--one of an elite breed of vampire that can walk by day and blend in easily with humans.
I could get under the covers with her and taste her, smell her, feel her, and experience her full feminine womanhood. She was sweet, she was soft, she was loving, she was evil……
This decrepit structure seemed like a highly inappropriate place in which a thing of beauty would have to die, but she had chosen the place, not I, and I would do what I had to do to finally bring it to an end. Beauty is not a substitute for humanity and no being can truly live and love without its humanity. My soul would somehow summon up the courage to put out the life force of a beautiful creature that had no soul………
My fingers dug in tighter around the dragon handle of the dagger and I pushed it against her chest a little harder. She took a deep breath as she felt the point against her chest. “Your idea of compassion escapes me Claudia. You relieved them of life,” I said.
Then I pushed it again just a little harder and the point pierced her blouse and I felt the softness of her skin resist it, and once again she took another deep breath but she continued. “Life is what you define it to be,” she said.
