The GodStuff or Even Things God Might Not Believe: a story of sorts by: GF Willmetts.

I sat patiently waiting for my lord, master and friend nosferatu to finish feeding from the blood from my neck. His lapping giving a tickling but not unpleasant sensation. I knew I would wobble a little when I got up but that would pass with a day or two and he was hungry again. He […]
