In The Dark Castle
I awoke in a dark room
With the familiar, handsome
Stranger at my side.
He smiled down at me.
He had reached for my hand,
But I pulled it away in fright.
'Do not fear,' he said, kindly.
'I had a doctor check on you.
She says you'll be fine.
I brought you here where it's dry and safe.'
I stared at him as he squeezed my hand.
'I'm David. You are?'
'Sue.' I was reluctant to get my name out.
He smiled, that's when I noticed his fangs. 'Don't let your surroundings frighten you.'
He continued to hold my hand until
He moved his hand over my eyes...
Causing me to drift off.
