V is for Vampire

First of all, I have a post up about coming up with writing ideas at the Parallels blog today.  Check it out if you're interested!

Now on to the matter at hand!

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I’m writing drabbles based on words I got from a random word generator.  A drabble is a short piece of fiction of exactly 100 words.



The years accumulate, piling one atop the other.  Sedimentation builds rocks over time.  The process is agonizingly slow.  Stuart wonders how many rocks have formed since he was born all those millennia ago.  How long has it been now?  He’s long since lost track. 
How many names has he taken?  Countless monikers ceased to fit, and he shed them like dry husks.
The faces he’s known have all blurred together.  He used to keep a journal, noting the important ones and the events that made them special, but that kept the wounds of losing them fresh.  
He’s weary of bleeding.
