Charming Tatiana 

Thank you Rochelle for keeping the Friday Fictioneers community inspired to write our set of flash fiction. The variety of stories presented indicates the wide imagination that prevails among us. Click HERE for more stories.

This week’s photo-prompt of a rusted grill in front of a door has sinister implications for me.

Photo Prompt by – Brenda Cox for Friday Fictioneers.

Charming Tatiana 

Tatiana is beautiful only at night, since the sunlight burns her skin.

In the Brecht Bar, her melancholy melodies inflame the passion in the minds of lustful drunks.
It is with these hypnotic charms she turns strangers into raging rampant beasts, who with a puckered invitation follow into the dark alley.
There, Tatiana embraces their aroma of sweaty testosterone and clasps her mouth on their neck, and sucks to leave a hickey.
Strangers disappear every week.

The rusted grill protects Tatiana, so she may sleep throughout the day. She does not fear the garlic breathed villagers who carry sharpened stakes.

  8. “puckered invitation” is a great term. Aha in your story the gate keeps the villagers out, and in mine it keeps the monsters out.

  10. Ooooo creepy story. She sounds like she is no victim that’s for sure. Her hunting ground may eventually get down but I think she will take care of herself quite well

  11. I like the description in this story. ‘Garlic breathed’ is good; ‘Sweaty testosterone’ is particularly graphic. I can imagine Tatiana’s clients all too clearly!

  13. Some really good images here. She’s a clever vampire – she chooses drunks to entice and attack. Easy pickings.

  14. Dear James,

    Tatiana sounds like quite the threat. Blood curdling vampire tale. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
