The last sunbeams were running fast into the horizon...
Opening the eyes he felt an immense vacuum that seemed to inhabit his feverish mind.
The sticky taste was around his mouth and extended far into the throat, it was primary over all other feelings.
The uncomfortable well being, was a surprise. Everything was there, he was complete but... dissatisfied. Thirst was unbearable.
As a flash an image crossed his mind and disappeared; the beast has attacked so suddenly there was not time to think. Surely it was the memory of a nightmare.
He tried to move the body, and it was so easy that it seemed he was already in the new position when it arrived there.
He moved, or better, he slid into the bathroom, put the light on and looked into the mirror.
The mirror reflected nothing!
The music is a fragment of the Vampire Song "Bloodletting" by Concrete Blonde.
