March Drabble Challenge: Saliva

Horror PromptsGillian Church is hosting another horror drabble challenge: 31 prompts for 31 creepy tales throughout March. This time, we can decide on the length of the piece but I’m sticking to the 100-word default.

Can you do it?

The Prompt:
Saliva

The Submission:
Debby jammed the iron pole between her and the ravenous creature trying to clamp his sharp fangs on her neck. His blood red eyes glared malicious and he spat obscenities, furiously swiping at her. Screaming, she rolled aside to avoid being split open, and lost her weapon. She scrambled to her feet, slipping on the wet stone ground, and felt the vampire’s vice-like grip clamp around her ankle. He dragged her across the ground, baring his shining fangs, and loomed over her, his rabid saliva dropping into her teary eyes. Debby whispered a prayer as the vampire began to feed.
