My wife is a vampire. And I’ve known for some time. Because I know when she is lying. I might be a frat boy turned investment banker, but I’m not stupid.
She was lying the first time we met, that day by the lockers, when she was harassing my sister. Her nose crinkled up and her eyes searched for a believable story. She was beautiful. A beautiful liar.
I’m not mad. I’m not. I’m frustrated. Why do our lives have to be a charade, an act hidden behind a perfectly constructed façade? I’m tired of it. But she never seems to grow weary, at least that I can tell. She goes on, day to day, like everything is a damn 80’s sitcom.
Then there’s her “friend” that keeps coming by. I’m assuming he’s a vampire too. Maybe he’s the one who turned her or maybe he’s just some guy she met at a vampire potluck. Either way I’m not happy about it. But what can I do? I couldn’t control her when she was human. And now I feel even more powerless. Trapped in my own world of lies and now hers.
But I love her. I always will. As long as she lets me. As long as time and circumstance allow me.
We’ll get through this. I know we will. She’s my Libby. She’s the reason I became who I am. She’s the reason I keep fighting. She’s the reason I lie, the reason I keep secrets–mine, hers and ours.
I guess it could be worse. At least she’s not leaving dead bodies everywhere. I already pay Lucille far more than she’s worth to scrub a toilet and mop some floors. I can’t imagine the fee for dead body removal.
I do have a plan though–for Halloween night. Secrets are going to be shared. I’m dead set on it.

The plot thickens! My mind is spinning with possibilities – and I have to wait another week to find out!
Great post 🙂
Thanks. I’m excited to find out what happens too! Evan seems to be a little too composed…
Ohh! I’m liking this!!
Thanks. Evan just decided it was his turn to talk after letting Libby have center stage this whole time 🙂
I like this. Is it an excerpt from your book?
It is actually a serial blog I created for the main character’s best friend, Libby, after she becomes a vampire. She usually posts on Fridays, but this week her husband took over. I figured it would be a cool way to let her tell bits of the story from her perspective, although it really focuses on her adventures more than the plot of the novel. It has been really fun and I’ve discovered much more about her and now her husband, Evan.
It’s nice to hear what her husband think of all this.
Yeah, I think he is still fluctuating between shock, denial, anger, all that stuff. But he feels compelled to keep up appearances and make it look like he has some control of what is going on.
Yes a Halloween post! I must admit I wondered how the husband was/wasn’t dealing with the changes in Libby. Cannot wait to read about the secrets … his, hers, and shared 🙂
Yeah, I think he comes off like he is taking it okay, but I get the sense that he is the type of guy that doesn’t want to appear to be out of control. It’ll be interesting to see what he has planned–even I don’t know yet. And thanks for the suggestion for a Halloween post. It’s funny, I hadn’t even thought about it 🙂
