Evening (flash fiction)

Venice by Victoria Frances



“Let’s go out tonight and paint the town red!” exclaimed Zana.

Krystal smiled. When Zana mentioned painting the town red, she sometimes meant it literally, given her proclivities.

“You planning to go out and have fun, or go on a killing spree again?” Krystal asked.

“The two aren’t mutually exclusive.” Zana pointed out.

“Yes, but killing loads of people ends up being rather messy doesn’t it? Maybe we should just stay in and order some room service.” Krystal suggested.

“Now that’s a great idea! The staff here look very tasty!” said Zana enthusiastically.

Krystal rolled her eyes and sighed.

    1. I suppose they could also possibly be werewolves. In my mind they were vampires when I was writing it. The draft I wrote had “as she was a vampire” rather than “given her proclivities”. I changed it as I preferred the line and it gave more mystery to it.
