Strange Days & Dark Nights
By The Original Pippie
Bam stepped back into the shadows of his room as he heard someone enter the house. Even though it was
night, he still had his room extremely dark.
The only light that snuck into the room came in through the cracks of
the door. He stood there with his eyes closed and allowed the darkness to swallow him whole.
Jenn was greeting a guest that they hadn’t seen in a while.
“So Dico what brings you here?”
wanted to see what everyone was up to, maybe we could go out to the bar or something.”
“Well Dunn and
Raab already left for the bar. It’s just me and Bam here right now.”
“Maybe I’ll go look for
them at the bar. Hey would you and Bam like to tag along?”
“Well I’m kind of busy tonight, but you
can go up and
ask Bam if he wants to go.”
“Is he in the bedroom?”
When Bam heard his
name, he went up to the door. He placed his ear against the door and put his hand on the knob ready to turn it.
ears perked and lips curled into a sly smile as he heard footsteps coming up the stairs. Laughing in his throat he dashed
back into his shadows and waited for his prey.
The doorknob turned and the door opened slowly with a creak. Brandon
peeked in, trying to see through the darkness.
“Hey Bam? You in here?” He stepped inside, and pushed the
door behind, leaving it open a little.
“Why is it so dark in here? Bam?”
He felt a chill go up
his spine and sensed the presence of something evil in the room. He could have sworn that he saw something move out of the
corner of his eye.
“Ok Bam, whatever stupid joke you’re trying to pull, it’s over now.”

He felt along the wall for a light switch

sharp teeth pierced the delicate soft skin on the side of Brandon’s neck. Brandon’s body went limp in Bam’s
arms as Bam drained the warm liquid from his veins.
Bam licked up the last couple drops of blood the ran out of the
fang holes on Brandon’s neck, then let the body lie on the floor. He then wiped what blood was left off of his mouth
and stepped into the hall.
Jenn made her way upstairs, shortly after Bam left the house, and she went into the bedroom.
She flipped on the light and stared down in horror.
Brandon’s cold, pale body was lying on the floor with nary
a breath entering or leaving it. Even though Jenn knew what happened she bent down to examine his body just to make sure.
She lifted his head and there on his neck were two fang-sized puncture wounds.
“Oh God. Not Dico!”
ran downstairs to where she left her cell phone and quickly dialed a number.
“Come on, come on. Pick up.”
“Dunn! Thank God. There’s trouble. Get your ass over
“Slow down. What’s going on?”
“Bam got Dico, and left the house. I don’t know
where he went.”
“Wait, what do you mean Bam got… oh mother fucker! Ok hold on Jenn, Raab and I will
be there as soon as we can.”
