Nadia stood on the platform and waited for the 10:25 to arrive. She was aware of the presence behind her, and felt the eyes taking in her every move.
I just need to keep calm, she thought to herself. Don’t let on that you know you’re being watched.
The 10:05 arrived and an elderly couple disembarked and made their way to the car park.
She gave a sideways glance in that direction as their headlights disappeared into the night. Now the car park was empty, and she knew she was truly alone exept for the watcher.
There was the sound of a throat being cleared in the dark, and while she tensed slightly, she didn’t start. In fact, she did her best to give the impression that she hadn’t heard it.
As the 10:15 express sped past the small station, she reached into her bag and took out a mint which she placed into her mouth and she slowly sucked it allowing its sweet cooling taste to calm her.
At 10:22 she heard the approaching foot steps.
This is it, I guess, she thought as she turned on her heels and bared her fangs.
It was often a challenge being a vampire, but sometimes some of these town boys made getting a meal just a little too easy.
