“I have a confession to make Nancy.”
“What is it Danny my love?”
“I killed the giant sloth causing all that ruckus over in Lapara. I was *so* thirsty.”
“Did it do you good?” his anime girlfirend asked.
“Oh man. Still draining the carcass over in Yellow Grass.”
Nancy had to ask something else. “Did you (also) kill Renaldo O’Donnell?”
Danny looks straight in her eyes. “There have been 7 carcasses within that grass the past 2 weeks, all animals. Does that answer your question?”
“Vampire or not, I’m just so glad you’re back.” Mouths full of chocolate chip cookies still, they share a crumbly kiss across the table.
Nancy kept forgetting to tell him that her Owls Head ring went missing right after he reappeared in town.
