A haunted house, a mysterious cat, a curious vampire—a lurking evil's about to be disturbed.
Halloween, 1918. An old house by the sea hides a variety of secrets none more terrifying than the event that took place nearly one hundred years before. Thought to be haunted, no one dares to go inside except for one Anne Sullivan; young vampire eager to understand the world around her. But what starts out as a simple excursion of academic proportions quickly escalates to something more sinister. With only a strange group of cats as companions, Anne must determine what’s happened in that aged house before it’s too late.
They made their way past Anne as if she wasn't even there, moving to the bed. The sun was on its way down, descending rapidly as afternoon turned to dusk. Warmth gave way to a chilled sea breeze, but the two lovers didn't seem to notice.
Anne watched with open curiosity as Shawn set Lynette down on the bed. She edged her way toward the pillow with her elbows. Her smile was bright and teasing as she reached the pillow and settled back, beckoning for her husband to join her.
Shawn knelt on the bed, inching forward before dropping a hand on either side of Lynette's hips. Their lips met in a passionate kiss. Anne gasped when they made contact and a chill danced down her spine. It was as if she were in the midst of their embrace-feeling both sides of the excitement-the electricity of their joy.
Shawn's lips were rough to Lynette's smooth-the contrasts continued. The wife's gloved fingers graced a cheek already marred with whiskers. His jaw tightened at the contact as he shifted his weight to the side-a motion that made Anne lose her balance and lean against the wall. It was as if two entities had come to reside in her body and the sensation was absolutely overwhelming.
Minutes passed as the two teased each other with tiny licks and kisses. They escalated to gasp-filled open mouth affairs, tongues mingling amidst audible breaths and inarticulate desperation. Anne felt warmth fill her body in a way that she only ever experienced before feeding. These two beings, alive, dead or otherwise, were providing her with more emotional nourishment than she had ever received at the hands of a lover.
Something snapped. Shawn began to clumsily work at Lynette's garment. Anne could feel his starvation to feel her bare skin-to explore the entirety of her body with thoughts that might have made the vampire blush had she not experienced them so many times before.
