When darkness and evil comes looking for Jenny, Matt grabs her and runs until they see a motel, but there is no shelter at Cafe Nowhere.
Cathy inherits a small fortune which allows her and her two lovers to live the quiet life in a sheltered cafe and motel. During a stormy evening of creative sex play, they are interrupted by two young people looking for shelter.
Sadly, nothing ends well for either party when the darkest vampire comes knocking and fire metes out a justice that no one could have imagined.
The wind howled around the lonely motel, sending sheets of snow against the windows, the snow piling higher and higher against the walls. Tall pines bent under the weight of the snow, its weight almost too much for the stately trees. Branches snapped and were picked up by the wind as if they were feathers. The motel and neighboring café creaked and groaned. Soft flickering light shone from the windows, the interior obviously lit by candles and maybe a roaring fireplace.
Dim headlights broke through the sheet of snow. A lone car struggled along the deserted road.
“We have to stop,” Jenny yelled. “You can’t see the road anymore.”
“If we stop here we’ll get buried and freeze to death. We’re in the middle of nowhere. It could be days before someone finds us.”
“If you don’t stop, you’ll drive off the side of a cliff.”
“Look, I see a house or something,” Matt said, his nose almost against the windshield.
Jenny leaned forward. “Yes, yes. It’s a motel. We can get a room for the night.”
“What about that bastard who’s chasing us? It’s too dangerous. We can’t stop, honey.”
“Maybe they’ll help us. If we can hide the car, he won’t know we’re there. That’s if he’s even behind us anymore.”
“Sweetheart, he’s a vamp. This storm won’t stop him. And what are we to tell the motel owner? There’s a vamp following us? He’s out to kill us?”
Jenny nodded. “I know. We can’t tell them and if we come up with another excuse to hide the car, they’ll think the cops are after us.”
The car slowed. The engine roared when Matt pushed the gas pedal, the tires spinning like crazy. “It’s no use. We’re stuck now.”
“I told you to stop. You never listen to me,” Jenny whined. “Do you even have any idea where we are?”
“Hell no. Come on, let’s go to the motel before we freeze. Maybe they’ll help us dig the car out.”
“I wish I had my coat.” Jenny shivered and hugged her arms tight around her body after she got out of the car and sank knee deep in the snow.
“Like we had time to grab anything.” Matt rushed to her side as fast as the snow allowed him. He placed his arm around her and pulled her tight against him to try and shield her and keep her warm. Slowly, they plodded through the snow toward what looked like welcoming light. “Look, there’s a café next to the motel. I hope it’s open. I don’t know about you, but I’m starving.”
“Me, too, but we haven’t got much money left. What are we going to do when we’re out of cash? We can’t use our credit cards.”
“Honey, I don’t know. We’ll deal with that later. I’ll steal if I have to. For now, let’s shelter for the night.”
