Three Shades of Blacque

I stood under the watery light of the bathroom, staring at myself in the mirror. My short black hair was a useless mess. Dark circles stood out under my deep black eyes.
Holy Crap!
There were bite marks on my neck; bruises on my wrists.
Upstairs, the phone rang. It was my sister Dru, calling to remind me that I'm supposed to talk to my father or something. I fisted my hands, cracking my grease-stained knuckles.
Looking back at my image in the mirror, I cursed again. I'd never get a comb through that mess.I didn't even have a comb.
Fuck it.
 I picked up the razor, buzzed it all off.
Then I went back to bed, where a tall blue-eyed vamp was still asleep.
He doesn't sparkle.

You're such a tease. Gosh I love them. :) Do you know when your LIAW story will be posted. Can't wait.

Hey K-lee, my LIAW story will probably be at the end, I had to set it aside for a couple deadlines. :) Bad planning on my part. Anyhow, its called "Blood Raine" and as usual, I overdeveloped the story and the world...I will definitely be revisiting this one...
