Beryl my Zombie Girlfriend.

Meet me in the scary café, she had said. Her favourite place.
I was on my second, deep black death coffee, it was delicious and tasted like reconstituted tar. Where was she?
Yea, what a fun place.
Try the putrid burgers, the dried blood is to die for, she had said. Don’t mind the wiggly maggots, they taste sweet with the  sauce.
Where is she?
People are staring, I fill with a desire to hug them, and stroke their soft necks.
My new overwhelming compulsive urge.
Beryl promised to teach me.
Being alive and dead is awesome, she had said.

  1. Putrid burgers sound so UNAPPETIZING! Golly I wouldn’t want to go to this place, Maggots are disgusting. Being live and dead at the same time is – Well, where do you go from this place? Scary and made me think.

  7. A good and well-written story, James, though creepy. She must be stunning even as a zombie to attract him. She may be spread around the outside somewhere by now. Zombies can’t seem to keep themselves held together. 😀 — Suzanne

  11. Ah, the pleasure of the vampyres. Beautifully told though the food makes me slightly nauseous.
