Vampire Layla is awake after sleeping 2,000 years and I’d love to hear your thoughts.
“Who are you?” Nubiti, the golden lady began to kick and scratch at Layla’s hands.
“Doo…not…fee-arrh…meee…” Her vocal cords stilted the strange words even to her ears, with a rasping halt that sounded too deep to be human.
When Nubiti screamed and kicked her in the face, the spiked heel of her sandal lodged in Layla’s eye.
“Nubiti…” The low rumble Layla emitted was meant to sooth but she could not temper the power behind it. Unable to find calming words, she shook her head as the woman’s eyes rolled. Nubiti was keening now, hysterical in fear.
Layla crawled over the woman, rubbing the dark, glittering stones on her garment, like stars in the night, which left most of her body bare. The golden lady looked into the eye she’d ruptured with her shoe, her own blue eyes widening as the fissure closed.
