Winners will be announced Monday morning.
If you could be an immortal, which one would it be and why?

Waking up to discover you're dead isn't a gal's idea of fun.

Deb Stein loved to party until she took the hunk dressed as a vampire to her bed. Now she’s one of
the living dead and pissed about it. Plus, she has to find a new identity and WORK!


He studied her for a long moment with his intense black eyes and she had to resist the urge to squirm.  Maybe she didn’t want to know what he was going to tell her. 

“Your condition is the result of…an accident.  My friend didn’t mean to get carried away and turn you into one of the living dead.” 

“The what?”  How did she manage to get hooked up with these weirdoes?  “Are you frigging nuts?”   

His dark glare stopped her from saying more. 

“For your information, I’m saner than you’re going to feel shortly.”  He held up a hand to stop her question.  “Let me finish before you start with your questions.”  His voice teetered on boredom as he went on to explain what happened to her Halloween night.   

The story may have bored him, but by the time he completed his tale, she was boiling mad.  “You’re telling me I’m a vampire.”   

This man was certifiable.  Vampires only existed in horror movies and at costume parties.  “Then what does that make you, if you’re friends with this individual who took a bite out of me?”

“A much older and wiser vampire than you or my young friend who created you.”  He adjusted the collar of his coat.  “Now, do you want to benefit from some of my knowledge or do you wish to continue with your delusion that I’m insane?” 

A little flicker of fear ran down Deb’s spine.  What if he was telling her the truth?  What if she had been turned into a vampire?  That would explain why the doctor pronounced her dead.  She was, what did Daniel call it…one of the living dead.   

“So, did your friend or whatever you call him, need virgin’s blood to survive or what?”  

The Experienced One grimaced.  “I call him Aaron, or sometimes refer to him as my protégé, and yes, he is my friend.  As for the virgin’s blood, if that was the case he’d be in real trouble on the survival issue with his selection of you, wouldn’t he?” 

The smug jerk cocked an eyebrow as he looked at her.  Deb saw red and it wasn’t blood.  Talk about a put-down.  “Well forgive me if I can’t win this year’s Miss Chaste award and for not knowing what is involved in the vampire way of life.  Is waking up one of the living dead like being a little bit pregnant?”

I would definitely be a vampire (my favorite). I like the night, prefer solitude or near solitude, would love to have bad ass powers, and I think fangs are sexy. ;)
