More Talk

Here’s my snippet this week to celebrate Talk Of The Town in paperback 🙂 Carl is dealing with a young, twinky stalker of Craig’s while they’re at a museum function–

“You–your eyes, what’s wrong with them?  And your teeth?  You look like a vampire.  Are you trying to scare me?  Because it’s working.”  His own eyes were blinking rapidly, trying to get the image out of his head. Dr. Fiorentino looked like something out of The Vampire Diaries.

“I‘m glad it‘s working, Charles.  I‘m glad you‘re scared.  But don’t worry, I’m not going to bite you. Vampires are fictional, after all,” he said, smiling.  “I won’t shed one drop of your blood.”  He held out his hand, and Charles took it, standing on his feet.  “You shouldn’t make idle threats. Now go find your grandmother and go home.”

Hmmm–one wonders whether Carl will let him off that easily 🙂 (wink)

    1. Hmmm–maybe not so hard for Carl, perhaps?

  4. I almost feel sorry for poor Charles! 😉


  5. With good reason, I think 🙂


  6. I’m curious about what kind of threat Charles was making…


    1. Okay, I’ll tell you 🙂 Charles had followed Craig into the bathroom and threatened him with reporting him for sexual harassment if he didn’t “date”him–when Craig told Carl, well–let’s just say Carl protects what’s his 🙂


  7. Ooo, there’s a certain amount of steam rising through this intense, yet somehow amiable exchange!


  8. Thanks 🙂 I tried to mix it up a little–Carl’s a crafty being when he needs to be —
