Mondays Finish the Story

Finish the story begins with:  “The Mayor and the town manager waved as their next victim approached.”


Horrors in town

The Mayor and the town manager waved as their next victim approached.


I moved out from the shadows to stop the young girl from going into the slaughterhouse. She stopped and took a step back from the mayor.

“Young lady, you need to mind your own business,” the man on the left said. The mayor grabbed the girl’s wrist, ready to pull her in. “You best be on your way.”

I pulled my gym bag closer, and took out my silver sword. The men stepped back as it gleamed. They pulled the girl inside, locking the door behind them.

Then there was the scream.

She was already sedated when I kicked the door down. The mayor held her neck at an angle, ready to bite. The town manager turned and screamed. In his true form he had a flat ribbed nose, fangs and ashen skin.

I lifted the sword.


“You saved my life.”

I wiped off the blood. “Just go before I burn city hall down.”


I based the true forms of the mayor and town manager on Skyrim‘s vampires. It’s the only vampire I know.

  1. “Here I come to save the day…” This went through my head as I read the story. Well done! Thank you for writing again for the MFtS challenge and be well… ^..^


  2. I’m glad the girl was saved – I hope burning down City Hall does the trick, though I suspect the vampires within have an escape route…

    I got turned into a vampire once, though I think it was in “Oblivion” rather than Skyrim 🙂

    1. You never know 😉 I never really saw vampires in Oblivion. I only did the dark brotherhood quests. But in Skyrim you do get the disease if you mess around with them. Lets hope the heroine didn’t get anything from them!


  3. I guess he cut off their heads before buring the City Hall with them in it. I’ve seen that sometimes done to kill vampires. I guess it depends what the story includes. Good thing the girl was saved. That was a close call. I love it when a sword is pulled out. That’s real class. Well done, WC. 🙂 — Suzanne
