Daily Prompt:

From Protector of the Grey House:

Vincent waited impatiently for the prey to come closer. The man jogged along the path oblivious of any dangers. He wore headphones and looked to be lost in the motion of running. During the day, this path was well used by joggers, bicyclists, and walkers. As it was two in the morning, it was empty of people. The large vampire was surprised there was anyone here. Lorraine informed him this path was rarely used this early in the morning, and generally only by one or two people. Vincent kept himself hidden as he thought of his next steps.

They were in a Nature Preserve. Technically, the park was closed. Technically, neither he nor the man should be here. Lorraine looked for these types of things, to find humans they could use for sport, if it were needed. His sire assured him it was safe. The man lived nearby and snuck into the park every night after work. He was a supervisor at a nearby call center. If he went missing, humans would look for him; Slayers would not.

All this information ran through the large vampire’s head as the man came closer. Satisfied with the situation, Vincent used his full speed and ran at the human. The man didn’t even notice. When Vincent slammed into him hard, the man screamed, but it was cut short. Vincent banged the human against a nearby tree which knocked the air out his lungs. As the man gulped for breath, Vincent laid his hand over the man’s mouth. The man tried to scream again, but Vincent grinned, elongated his fangs, and hissed.
