WHO’S AFRAID OF VAMPIRES?
What could me more in tune with October and the Halloween season than a story about gravediggers looking for vampires?
The story is “Vampire Hunt” by Geoff Orens. We promise it’s not scary!
We turned on our flashlights and walked over to the plot. There, Paul Smith’s grave was still a bunch of turned over dirt. Jeremy Sylvester passed out some garlic while Frank and Clarence proceeded to dig up the coffin. I did feel nervous that someone was going to catch us, but I was also excited to see what an actual vampire would look like.
