“The kitchen is rustic and about 150 square feet.”
The real estate agent didn’t have to sell any more. Kathy already loved it! She’d always wanted a kitchen like this one. Spotless, it felt like a detergent commercial should be shooting!
“I’ll take it.”
“Thought you might,” purred the agent, and pointed out where Kathy should sign the paperwork.
Later, as Kathy was unpacking, dirty dishes appeared in the sink. The trash bin was overflowing. The kitchen doors and windows were sealed shut.
The agent greatly enjoyed her new vampire abilities, particularly the hypnosis. Trapping fresh meals was ludicrously easy.

LOL – gotta watch out for those vampires! Enjoyed your story. 🙂
Sneaky buggers. I always wondered, if you can mesmerize the maidens…why wait to eat?
Especially if you are a vampire?
Poor Kathy. She couldn’t even see it coming!
I don’t know which one scares me worse: realtors or vampires. Are they synonyms?
This made me laugh. I don’t know if it was supposed to but it did.
Depends what you were laughing at 😛
I was laughing at whatever is acceptable. 😉
Crafty creature. What’s for dinner?
Soccer moms, I guess. Easy to pick up a six-pack at the local Starbucks.
After seeing all those dirty dishes suddenly appear, getting drained by a vampire was probably quite welcome 🙂
Maybe preferable to clean up.
Supposed to be a chilling twist at the end…but I could only laugh. Nice one.
Naw, wasn’t built up for “chilling”. That usually takes more Mood setting than a hundred words allows.
Wow – I wasn’t expecting that! Good job.
NO ONE EXPECTS THE FILTHY DISHES! Mwuhahahaha.
Those poor folks! I was not expecting the vampire twist. A good story Dave! ^..^
I wish I had hypnosis abilities. It might help sell a few more books. 🙂
You are getting sleepy. See that book cover? It’s totally by Stephen King. Dig out your wallet…
Now that’s just plain mean! 😉
Naw, mean would be forcing your meal to clean the dishes first.
I think I’d rather become a vampire than to be tricked into buying a ramshackle house by a vampire. Of course, that’s easy for me to say…I’m not a sun worshiper! 😉
Beware the supernatural realtors!
And the supernatural homes…wait, that’s a different tale.
I’ve wondered to this day how I ended up buying a 100-year-old dump!? I was mesmerized by a vampire/agent. Love it, oh, and I do love my very old house, until the electrical lines, and plumbing needs replaced. And don’t get me started on the uneven floors. 🙂 Truly, it will be a masterpiece when the next buyer is done refurbishing it! LOL
This is a masterpiece too! Loved it!
Those bloodsuckers are just too sneaky!
hehehe Nicely put
That was totally unexpected and a surprise not just for me but those that have just become a meal. Wonder if they got to clean up first.
Very clever vampire here. That’s a great visual from the spotless kitchen to it overflowing with dishes and garbage. Great story, Dave.
I think that hypnosis would be a great ability for an estate agent, but it might suck for the buyer.. (esp the vampire bit)
I knew there was a reason not to trust real estate agents. Very funny story – loved the twist.
Clever stuff – I’ve long suspected many salespeople might be vampires (at heart at least).
Great twist at the end. Made me laugh.
