“Two minutes, Mr President,” Renfield announced, over the thump-thump of approaching helicopters.
Damned landslide. Stuck in Abe’s Diner all morning.
Renfield smiled warmly as the old man took his mug.
His grand-daughter hovered near the President’s table.
With the thunderous arrival of the Sikorsky, crockery shook and rattled.
Lucy crept closer.
“Is it true?” she whispered. “Are all politicians blood suckers?”
The President flashed a smile – razor sharp.
As the Secret Service scrambled his President onto Marine One, Renfield came back.
“Thanks again, Mr…?”
“Van Helsing,” said the old man, coldly. “Abraham Van Helsing.”

The names in this story are taken from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and it was inspired by Halloween, the Presidential election, and way too much Vampire Diaries on TV. No political bias intended, in my mind the President is neither Obama nor Romney, but rather Timothy Olyphant (with fangs) – which would make my Halloween!

I’ll be a bit late reading other stories and leaving comments, as I have a floor to varnish, so please don’t think I’m ignoring you.
