This was not turning out to be a good day for Joe. The advert he had put in the paper had read, ‘Vampire hunter wanted for extermination job. Pay negotiable.’ But this man before him had evidently read it wrong. He was a vampire hunter, that was true, but he was not a hunter of vampire’s, he was an actual vampire. Joe couldn’t bring himself to correct him, nor turn him away. Also he did not think this man would appreciate him asking him to murder a gang of his fellow vampires. Great, now he had to think of someone to have brutally murdered. Plus he was too scared of the guy to haggle the price and was presently paying triple the price he had expected, all just to have a random person killed. Oh well, maybe he would just have the tax collector killed, and be done with it. November 2004.
