Unexpected Prom night


Marilyn stole her mother’s money to buy a red gown because she wanted to impress James at the prom. She knew that she would be in deep trouble once her mother returned from her business trip. However, all Marilyn could think of was to win James’ heart.

When she arrived at the prom, everyone was already dancing. She searched the dance floor, but James was nowhere in sight. Maybe he’s late! She made her way to the restroom hoping to get a final check of herself when she heard some noises coming from a room next to it.

Marilyn peeped through the door, which was ajar. She saw James kissing her best friend! Feeling dejected, Marilyn turned away but was caught off guard by Paul. Paul pushed Marilyn into the room.

“James, you have another meal!”

Licking off his bloodied fangs, James replied, “I won’t mind sharing with you, Paul.”

  1. Reading this interesting take makes me feel that the name “Marilyn” can be replaced by “she” in second or in last paragraph. Please take it as my suggestion as I really admire your narration and can’t resist giving my feedback here πŸ™‚
