Winners Announcement:

Honorable Mentions
Sheilagh Lee | @SweetSheil
Scott says: I liked the mystery of what exactly was going on with the male's mind and his alter ego. That was very intriguing to me.

Cara Michaels | @caramichaels
Scott says: Cara's story...Well that's brutally obvious for me, it's about Lycans :) and just the way it was written sounded like it would be a kickass story so far.

Silver James | @SilverJames_
Scott says: Silver James' story was interesting because of how the brunette got the upper hand on the blonde because Roman was one of "hers" and if felt as if she was his controller. Which sounded really cool.
Week 72 Winner

Scott says: I loved this story of the human assassin getting the upper hand on the vampire. I love the vampire mythos as much as the next person, but it is great to see the humans winning the epic battle that always continues till the end of time.

Job's Done

Jen spat blood and tested the links that chained her to the chair. She made a show of running her tongue over her teeth to test their looseness. She looked up to her captor who readied to deliver a second blow.

“You will die tonight,” the vampire spat. The creature made a show of descending her fangs. Jen rolled her eyes.

“Sophie? You know,” Jen said casually, “That trapping me in my own home was a bad idea right?”

“I will feast on your blood. Tomorrow, I’ll bring your corpse to master as a prize,” Sophie purred as she rocked Jen’s body with another punch.

“Your Master?” Jen wheezed as she glanced as the clock and the shuttered windows. “Venari? That’s what this is all about?” Blood dribbling from her nose, she laughed weakly. “Jeez. You’re just jealous! Wow! Look lady, he came to my house to order a hit not hit on me.”

“You’re an assassin?” Sophie asked with a laugh. “A puny human like you?”

Jen joined her in laughter as she watched the clock. A faint alarm went off in another room. Jen continued to laugh as the shutters opened automatically and daylight poured into the room. She giggled as the vampire went up in flames.

Jen twisted her wrist and slipped out of the chains. Getting up, she wiped her nose on her sleeve and dug her cellphone from her purse at the front door. She dialed quickly and smiled when the line connected.

“It’s done.”

Congratulations Theresa, Sheilagh, Cara, and Silver! Don't forget to claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it! :)

  1. Congrats, everyone! I'm doing the happy dance for my honorable mention!

    And thanks for judging, Scott! Roman is doubled over laughing at the thought Sade is his controller. This little scene was set during her college days. A human, Sade grows up to be a FBI agent. Roman has been her bodyguard since Oberon, king of the fae court, first kidnapped her from her godfather, a master vampire. Yeah. Complicated. Fun! But complicated. ;-)

  2. WOW! Thank you! Thank you! I'm over the moon!

  3. wow thank you. I'm doing the happy dance for my Honorable Mention.
    Congratulations I loved your stories @theresabreaux winner and to other honorable mentions @caramichaels @SilverJames_
