This week, from L. A. Witt, six sentences from A Chip In His Shoulder, my cyberpunk/vampire work-in-progress:
Want to play along? It’s fun and easy!
One day I was living in luxury in a place just like this, and the next I was on my knees in the Gutter, choking on the haze and begging for…for anything I could get. A bed, shelter from the sun, just one neck from which to feed. While Daniel carried on living like a king, I whored myself out in exchange for alcohol-saturated blood from the near-dead who could barely work up the energy to collect their halves of our bargains.
I forced back the nostalgia and fondness that tried to tell me I’d regret this. Oh, no. I only regretted it had taken me this long to come to this door with a gun.
