A Pint of Blood, by Michael A. Kechula

Frank answered a newspaper ad: “Beautiful Vampire Seeks Male Donors.”

They met in a restaurant.

“You’re cute,” she said. “What’s your blood type?”


“My favorite! Mind losing a pint tonight? Sipping blood gets me incredibly aroused.”

Frank couldn’t wait.

“Dessert?” asked the waiter.

“No.” Squeezing Frank’s thigh, she whispered, “You’re my dessert.”

And he was. But he was also appetizer and main course.

Her ad lied. She was a man-eating zombie, not a vampire.

Newspapers accept ads from vampires, werewolves, ghouls, but not zombies. This despicable discrimination forces honest female zombies to lie when placing WOMEN SEEKING MEN ads.


Michael A. Kechula’s flash and micro-fiction tales have been published by 150 magazines and 50 anthologies in 8 countries. He’s won 1st prize in 12 writing contests and 2nd prize in 8 others.
