Sangraritual - noun: a custom in which a newly turned vampire chooses their first victim

By Clyde E. DawkinsPublished 4 months ago • 1 min read

"I've never done this before."

Giselle French was seated with her boyfriend of a year, Justin Caldwell, in her living room, and she was quite nervous.

"Giselle, you know I'm here for you," said Justin.

"I know, and I love you for it," said Giselle. "It's just...I had been seen my therapist about this, and she gave me the confidence to do this, but...I don't know."

"Honey, it's OK," said Justin. "Just follow what's in your heart." The couple made out with each other afterwards, with Justin stroking Giselle's hair, and later noticing something that he hadn't seen before.

"That's a pretty interesting neck tattoo," Justin said. "Which tattoo artist gave it to you?"

"Natalia did," replied Giselle. "She's my therapist...and it's not a tattoo." Giselle gave a fiendish smirk towards Justin, before suddenly unveiling a set of fangs and lunging at Justin's throat. Justin's screams were loud, but faded quickly, as Giselle completely drained him of his blood. Afterwards, Giselle heard her doorbell ring, and she rushed to the door with great delight.


Giselle's therapist, Dr. Natalia Rand, made her entrance and wasted no time locking lips with her patient, while revealing her own vampire fangs afterwards.

"I knew you could do it, babe," Natalia said with a sinister smile. "That's why I turned you. That, and you're so sexy."

"Thank you so much!" exclaimed Giselle, before kissing her vampire lover once again. "I couldn't have enjoyed my sangraritual without your help!"
