Cal and Kay
His name was Cal, he lived by night. If you met him, you'd get a bite, and wished you had stayed in till light. He met a girl, her name was Kay, but not like him, she lived by day. He sought a witch, and had to pay. The spell did work, his fangs won't grow, and his eyes lost their bright red glow. Cal looked for Kay, she had to know. Where did she go? Cal had no clue. When Cal found Kay her new fangs grew, and her eyes had a bright red hue.
Mist entered the open window and hung in the air, transforming into a vampire with a red-eyed stare. Moonlight shone on the woman lying in the bed. The vampire glided forward and bent over her head. Startled, the woman screamed, then looked at her clock. "You're late," she scolded. "And you forgot to knock."
“Cal and Kay” and “Night Caller” were originally published in The Creativity Magazine in 2020.
