The Newly Vampire and Other Stories
by Neva Teal
Jobelle is a newly made vampire of only seventeen.
In her world humans are slaves to vampires, who keep them as food for many years until they can no longer draw blood from them. Usually they live up to eighteen years.
Jobelle is tired of that life and when she smiles, remembering her liberating death is only a year away - others tell her Master that his slave "has been smiling".
