Allure… The Return

Allure… The Return

“You Think You Can Just Walk Away From Me Girl…” Vincent Said To Me As I Continued To Make My Way Through The Streets Of New Orleans… I Made My Way Into A Dark Alley… Probably Not The Best Thing… But I Didn’t Know What Else To Do. And Once I Was Thirty Or So Feet In, I Turned To Face Him… But He Wasn’t There…

Suddenly He Grabbed Onto Me From Behind, His Mouth An Inch Away From My Neck… “I’ll Drain You Of Your Life’s Essence Right Now…” He Spoke… With This I Relented, And Slanted My Neck In A Way To Fully Expose It… “Just Do It…” I Spoke…

I Could Feel His Cool Breath Upon Me… The Hunger Filled Him… But Some How He Stopped Himself “No… Not Yet” He Spoke, Then Suddenly I Was Air Born… He Was Holding Me Tightly… And We Were… Flying




Out front in the huge, half circled driveway, was Arram’s dark blue old Mustang…

Arram sat alone in the driver’s seat reading her mother’s second book… “Vampire’s Truth”.

Her hair was now a dark purple, as opposed to royal blue, but she still kept it in a ponytail.

She needed a change, and so she dyed it a new color.

She sits the book down, and gets out of the car.



Arram sat in her Uncle Tom’s study as he poured her some tea.

“I must say Arram, I am surprised to see you back home…” he spoke, and then made his way to his chair, using his cane.

“I can’t hunt La Fon anymore…” she spoke, whilst gazing blankly out her uncle’s window, watching the birds in the nearby trees.

“I see…” he replied, as he lit his pipe, and tossed the used match into the nearby fireplace.

She looks at him “You knew that La Fon was my mother’s lover…” she spoke.

Uncle Tom took some puffs off his pipe then “Mmm, hmm”

“Why didn’t you tell me…” she spoke more than asked.

With this he stood and made his way over to the window, looking out through the glass.

“It’s complicated” he spoke without looking back at her.

“Yeah, well I’m done” she spoke as she stood.

With this he turned and faced her “Alright…”

“I’m going back to school… Seth has already returned…” she spoke with a rather weak conviction.

“And Roy Milon?” he asked.

“I don’t want to talk about Roy…” she replied, and started towards the door.

“Arram…” he called after her, and she froze in the doorway.

“What…” she replied without looking at him.

Arram was crying, but her uncle couldn’t see her.

“Oh… Nothing” he continued.

And so she left.



Tears still fill her eyes as she thinks of La Fon behind her in that abandoned building (Back In Episode 15)

“Why can’t I get you out of my head” she thinks to herself.

“You killed my mother… I just know you did”

“I just know it…”



Uncle Tom sits at his desk, writing a note…

“Dear Arram… I know that you will never forgive me for this… But I must tell you the truth… I killed your mother… Not La Fon… It’s difficult to explain exactly what occurred… But suffice it to say, I sought only to protect her from these creatures of the night… And instead, ended her life through my rashness, and rage, meant to be used against La Fon.

I understand why you can no longer hunt La Fon… I would imagine that you, like your mother, feel a very deep connection to him. That is why I shall kill him myself… Though I admit, the last time I tried, ended in your mother’s untimely death… I feel I have no other option.

With this letter I’ve included all the documentation you will need to gain access to your mother’s estate funds…

I’m sorry Arram… I hope someday you can find it in your heart to forgive me… I know that I can never forgive myself…

Love Always… Your Uncle Tom

Uncle Tom places the letter into an envelope holding some other documents… He then hands it to his man Zorin “Mail this right away…” and stands.

He grabs onto a large bag, and his cane, and heads to his front door, where he opens it to exit his house… Standing there is Roy Milon.

“Need some help getten La Fon…” speaks Roy, which surprises uncle Tom.

“If so… I’m your man” Roy finishes.

Zorin pulls around the old Rolls Royce, and Roy and Uncle Tom get into it, and the three of them drive off.

  1. Very good, I can feel the shift in the style when Uncle Tom’s talking, it’s more mature and “refine”. And you always manage to surprise me with an unexpected end for instance! 🙂

    • You’re right, she has grown from all that she’s been through… And from finding about her mother… And from her attractions towards both La Fon, and Roy Milon.

      The change of the Color of her hair is meant to be symbolic… She’s Growing… She will also be 17 years old soon, and as you probably agree, 16 is much different than 17… And 17 is much different than 18, Etc… In the early years of our lives, Each Year is very Impactive on our Personal Growth… At least potentially.

      I’m glad you like it… Things are going to very much change from this point.

      I’ve also spoke to Beth, who reviewed and Line Edited My Novella in preparation for then working with my Sister on it… And she’s not only going to Review and Line Edit My Fantasy Novel which I finished in June, but she’s also signed on for “Allure”, which she very much likes.

      So after My Fantasy Novel is Self Published, I believe I will Self Publish the First Novella of “Allure”… Your Pre-Editing is also much appreciated, in fact yours is the First String of Editing, then Beth, then My Sister or whoever I have Editing for me on that Project.

      Thanks for all of your help, and Feedback… You are one of my Greatest Inspirations in regards to “Allure”, so I will always keep you in the loop in regards to its next step


      • Yes, nice touch with the hair color!

        That’s great news : ) it’s easier to collaborate with someone you “know” in this case. Editing requires indeed a lot of time and focus. My mom is a big help, now my aunt is proof-reading too, then the translator I told you about and I also have a facebook friend & blog follower who agreed to read it, so I get some feedbacks on the content as well as on the form. So it’s great you “use” different persons, it’s amazing the errors one can still find after 2 or 3 editing!

        Thank You James!!! I’m happy to be kept in the loop, I love Allure 🙂

        Have a nice evening/afternoon 😉 XO
