Eternal

An attractive girl sat in a restaurant booth staring moodily at a half empty glass of wine and a picked at bowl of pasta in a tomato and basil sauce It’s not as good as his she thought to herself and sighed deeply, her phone rang and she looked down at the slim lined shape, unknown number.
“Hello?” She answered, her voice was like liquid gold and startled the young waiter who had been about to ask her if she would like a re-fill of her drink.
“Hey Ruby, you have no idea how good it is to hear your voice” She felt her heart melt and jump into her throat when she heard his chioretic voice.
“Zeke?” she croaked
“Yeah babe sorry it’s been so long, I’ve kinda only found out you hadn’t died in anchorage a couple of hours ago.”
“why so long?” she asked Anchorage was over six months ago how could he have only just found out?
“Well when the hunters left you for dead they kinda didn’t stop hounding me until a couple of hours ago.”
“Why did they stop?” when she heard his quiet laughter she knew it was obvious. “You’re strong enough to kill six hunters?”
“Over time, picking them off the edges.” She said nothing for awhile processing all the information.
“When can I see you?” she asked she ached for his presence, he thought for a moment.
“Where are you?” he asked finally.
“Sydney I’m staying in the Dee”
“Two days, meet me at Les Aliments d’Amant at twelve thirty”
“All right, Zeke?”
“Yeah?”
“Do you still love me?” Her heart felt like it was going to jump out her mouth as she asked the question
“Forever my gorgeous girl” he paused “Je t’aime” He finished
“Je t’aime aussi” the line disconnected. Ruby sighed and ate and drank like a human…she laughed as she made the simile

I stare down at the busy footpath three stories below me, the people have huge shadows thanks to the twilight. I see a young couple, both in their early twenties walking hand in hand down the footpath, a brisk draft blows My long black hair over My deep blue eyes and I brush it away with one pale hand. The girl from the couple burrows into the boys side, she looks up and smile at him and he looks down lovingly. This flooded me with memories, memories of candle lit dinners in Paris, kisses under the moonlight in Venice, someone else’s body heat under silken sheets and-. I cut off my train of thought and stand. I am hungry…I am thirsty, but I need to see her. To travel of that distance I was going to need energy. I hit the fire escape running and was at the bottom in seconds.

I got the idea of this while looking down at the footpath from the roof of a shopping centre while packing the car.

    Steve, I was talking to this publisher at this business dinner thing i was dragged along to and she is here in Melbourne and she only publishes short stories.She makes these little double sided pocket books. A short story on either side. Min Words is 9000 each. She is looking to bring out a range soon that target the teenage market. But you have to make sure your stories are not simular (this one not like the Twilight series for example). Also don’t co-write do it all your self….Apparently the royalties are around 40% return. Maybe this will keep you busy over the school holidays remember 9000 words at least. I have a copy of one of the books you can have a look at it you like.

    I love the human element to the vampires, it’s always nice to see that someone hasn’t just gone “vampires = evil, humans = good” for once.
    There’s a real sense of closeness between the two vampires which i like – the vampires still being romantic thing almost similar to Anne Rice, but at the same time being very different.
    After reading the comments aswell, i hope you manage to get some of your stuff into the world – after all, isn’t that the dream? ^^

  • thanks!

    This is good, cute… I was a bit confused as to who was speaking in the first person. Looks like the start of a story, and I too would like to see more! Keep up the good work!
