Sanguine Lament

You, me and the devil make three

Who the hell would have figured that this would be where it would end. a quiet drizzle poored down over eddies face, last he had remembered he had not put himself to sleep in a six foot hole in the ground. As he stood he heard a quiet chuckle, and then a chorus of growls. Feeling brave he lept up and grabbed onto the ledge. he looked up just in time to be bludgeoned with the head of a shovel. Hoping to be knocked out so he could just let it slip, he flew heavily back onto the soil. He lay back and quietly let his nose and mouth bleed, and his eyes water from the impact. silently he cursed whoever did this to him. He went to breath, but he coughed something up from the back of his throat. He sat up and caught it in his palm. it was his fangs, cracked and broken. He Hissed and stood up once more, ready for what he had assumed would happen. Lightning struck nearby, lighting the air, and it was then that eddie saw who his assailent was.

It smiled and smashed the shovel into Eddies shin. He toppled backward into the pit, and the remaining breath slipped out from between his lips. The hounds lurched over the pit, their eyes glowing the same feint red as the man. The first shovel of dirt landed on his lap, and he winced at the cold touch of it. Eddies voice rang out from above the pit, but it echoed a much deeper, more sinister tone. “Oh, I almost forgot” it said. The man, lept down, and and clasped his fist. the mans hand changed in the blink of an eye, his hand had changed into a spear tip. The man thrust it into his chest. Eddie shot awake, alone in his bed, the moon beaming through the clear sky. no more stail blood before bed…
