Tenacious (flash fiction)


No one had expected Amelia to survive her death, but here she was standing by the grave she had just dug up from. It had been difficult at first, but her will to endure overcame any problems digging through the earth had posed. She was alive. She was tenacious. She was immortal now.

Amelia walked out of the graveyard. Having overcome death, it was now time to feed, and she was so very hungry.

  1. Excellent flash (and very you)!

    As a philosophical question, are vampires immortal or unmortal? I know unmortal’s not a word, but I think it’s a strange situation and I’m curious as to an expert’s thoughts.
