|Blood Wine and Roses.|
A late summer evening, outside The Vesta, and a crowd of black clad teenagers gathered, waiting for the next showing of Blood Wine and Roses. Some wore cloaks, fake fangs. Others, Victorian cameos tied around their necks with black ribbon.
Elissa and Gabriel came up out of the underground stairwell that led into the lobby of the theatre. Elissa leading the way, her fingers wrapped around Gabriel’s wrist, weaved drunkenly through the crowd.
They passed a girl with her head thrown back so the boy in her arms could bite at her neck and Elissa, grinning, half turned to Gabriel and said,
“So, if you were given immortality, would you share it with me?”
Gabriel and Elissa. Two characters who cropped up in NaNoWriMo ’09. Whose histories I’ve been visiting in snippets for the 31 Words prompt challenge I gave myself on Deviantart. Whose story I need to make a point of getting familiar with.
