Sarah Palin: Vampire Hunter


Twinkle, Oregon

Twilight’s last gleaming fell softly through the mist between the trees. Sinuous fingers of fog caressed the upright shafts and trailed teasingly through the underbrush. The sun plunged into the wet darkness of the roiling sea. Above, parting clouds exposed a full, round, ripe, pale moon heaving upward into the night sky. Its tender light groped downward to find a young couple in a forest clearing, clutched in a tight embrace, their lips melded together in a deep and passionate kiss.

They broke apart.

“Oh, Edmund!” said Stella, gasping. “Sometimes I think I’ll suffocate from kissing you! It’s like you never need air.”

“Sorry,” said Edmund. He smiled apologetically. “Sometimes you make me forget to breathe.”

Stella grinned. “When you put it like that, I don’t mind at all. Oh, Edmund, I love you so much!”

“And I love—”

“I mean, I really, really, deeply, completely love you with every single part of me from my head to my toes.”

“I feel the—”

“I mean every single molecule of me loves you! Every atom! Every one of those sub-atomic thingies Mr. Flagg talks about in science class but I don’t really know what they are because I spend the whole class staring at you or passing notes to Callie about how much I love you or writing your name on my notebook.”
