Wordzzle #57 - Sean the Vampire, Part 3

These are the words to Raven's Wordzzle game. I have taken the words but changed the rules a little.

To see the directions and other players, visit Raven.

Ten Word Challenge will be: apoplexy, doctor, hummingbird, shallow end of the pool, brigadier general, mustard, greed, parallelogram, slumber party, casual

Mini Challenge: Mount Olympus, arsonist, portraits, birch trees, "that car needs a new muffler"

Part One

Part Two

Sean took a casual look for a map. He looked around and saw portraits of "The Most Wanted" on the mustard colored walls. He decided to approach his search for bad-men-food like a brigadier general on campaign.

He ignored the greed in his veins calling for immediate release. This would be no slumber party. When you hunted a serial killer, rapist or arsonist, there was no need to be careful or kind. He looked forward to causing apoplexy in someone.

Something rushed by his head. At first he thought it was a hummingbird, but he knew no living beings were in the town. An apparition appeared in front of Sean the Vampire. This was the Ghost Toasty he had smelled earlier. Its vapors were singed on the edges.

"Call me Doctor Death," said the specter, "I can help you find all of sinners you can eat." The haunt swooped around Sean's head.

"How did you die?"

"I went for a midnight swim
in my parallelogram shaped natatorium after a day spent snorting cocaine, diving into the shallow end of the pool, hit my head and died."

"Not too bright," said Sean.

Doctor Death turned up the wattage and Sean had to shade his eyes.

"I know the first person on your menu lives in a mansion called Mount Olympus, surrounded by birch trees. You will need to go in with iron to protect yourself from his magic."

"Um, vampire," Sean said, pointing at his chest.

"Can you shape-shift right now or fly?" asked Doctor Death.

"I am weak right now from lack of blood, but I'll manage."

"Follow me."

The phantasm floated through the wall at the back of the store. Sean followed through a door into an alley where a cherry red Mustang sat.

"Get in," said Doctor Death. "Let's go."

Sean the Vampire got behind the wheel.

"Who's car?"


"Why would a ghost need a car?"

"The person before he became a ghost needs a killer car," said Doctor Death. "Start her up."

Sean turned the key. A horrendous rumble and a mean growl erupted from the running motor, shaking every inch of the vehicle. The vibrations made Doctor Death's vapors shift and quiver. Sean turned the car off and got out.

"What are you doing?" asked Doctor Death.

"That car
needs a new muffler," said Sean.

"Begging vampires can't be choosy."


  1. LOL! Hope he finds a meal quick! I'm really NOT into the whole vampire "thing" - but when I was a teenager I love love LOVED Dark Shadows! So I still have a weeeee little bit of it in me! Very clever, you are!

  2. I bet Sean just wanted a couple hits from the exhaust pipe of that good ol' monoxycotton.

  3. Betty loves vampire stories so I'll tell her to be sure to read this.
    Well done. Very well done.

  4. Seamless, if you hadn't highlighted them, I would have never guessed which words were from the challenge. (Apart from the fact that I've read a few Wordazzles today. ;) )

  5. HA! You may have found a way to make me feel sympathetic to a vampire. Do you suppose Dr. Death could take him over to Richard's place to take his serial murderess out before she kills another young girl?

  6. Wonderful story Nessa. Choosy Vampires choose Jiff not some rattle trap. oops that's Mothers...

    hmmmmmm so this vamp
    could choose a tramp
    But the witch is flying
    as her seat mate was spying
    Let's hope he knows
    that wherever she goes
    young women spew blood
    from the hands of Rich's dud
    So get to her quick Sean
    And bite her neck in early dawn
    it will fill your tummy
    and get rid of that dummy

  7. Very entertaining. I love the last line. Looking forward to the next installment.

  8. Nessa, your writing is so smooth and flows together. I really enjoyed your stories and look forward to the third installment.

  9. Wow--Ghost Toasty's past is pretty shady. And all this time I thought he was just a harmless sheet ghost! I wonder just what Mickey Ratt and he may have done together before Mickey "went straight" and started Rattling Bones Undead Musician Magazine.

  10. Oh what fun!

    "I am weak right now from lack of blood, but I'll manage."

    that line made me LOL

  11. Actonbell: Sean is very persnickety.

    Melli: Dark Shadows was great. I watched it everyday when I got home from school.

    Tom: He is a bit stressed.

    Dr. John: I need to get to the sexy stuff soon.

    Cherie: I found this week’s words more difficult than usual.

    Quilly: She does did to be taken down a notch or two.

    Thom: Great poem.

    Raven: Not exactly your “rules” but I am running out of energy and time lately.

    Pam: I’m glad you liked.

    Cheesemeister: I’m sure things will come out.

    Akelamalu: Sean believes in muddling through.

  12. very entertaining. hope sean finds that serial killer soon

  13. Juliana: I think he may stand a chance.
