Chapter 12 – An Unexpected Detour

They watched him walk away. “Rather hostile, wasn’t he?” Kathryn said.

Rieko shrugged. “That’s the opinion of a lot of people around here,” she replied. “It’s not a good idea to walk around talking about Forgotten Hollow, the Great Vampire War, or Vladislaus Straud.”

“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to bring up bad memories.”

“It’s not your fault; you didn’t know.”

“Considering how people feel about the…you know, I’m sure someone wrote a book about it.”

“Oh yes, I do have several books on the subject,” she nodded. Tapping the keyboard, she wrote something down and handed it to Kathryn. “Here you go. You’ll find them on the second floor. Just bring them back here when you want to check out.”

Kathryn thanked her and headed upstairs.

She found the books and noticed that there were ten books about the Great Vampire War. Choosing a couple of them, she took them back downstairs, filled out some information for a library card before checking out the books. Thanking Rieko for her help, she went back to get her car.

As she drove home, she passed a sign that said, “Forgotten Hollow 5 miles” with an arrow that pointed to the left. Impulsively, Kathryn hit her turn signal and made the turn.

Maybe it was time she got a look at Forgotten Hollow for herself. She just hoped she wouldn’t run into any vampires.

They don’t come out during the day, right?

I have always loved to read, and carry a book with me wherever I go. I’ve written for several online sites, doing book reviews and author interviews. After graduating in 2000 from West Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s degree, I was a teacher for a while before deciding my destiny was to write, not to mold young minds. Writing for me is like taking an exciting journey, or going on a welty, as my parents say. I don’t know where my stories are going to take me. I just hang on and enjoy the ride.
