FOUR is four letters : a vampire novella


FOUR is four letters: a vampire novella

FOUR is four letters is a short novella from Vampire Novella – an exercise in the fear of what hides from us in plain site. Unlike other sinister numbers of note, your 13’s and triple 6’s, 4 bides its time, and strikes seemingly at moments when its the most ignored. The aftermath of which is usually so grotesque and horrific everyone overlooks what the evidence clearly points to the entire event can be traced back to a basic cycle of fours. This particular novella, though based in the vampire genre, can also be a treat for the average arithmomaniac.

A Cycle of FOUR

Four cars crash at a 4-way stop, no one is hurt, information is exchanged, and this occurrence is all but a memory save for a cell phone snapshot shared on a “fail blog” apparently one of them had a flat tire already and the driver didn’t fix it because he had no 80 Gallon air compressor to do it. Few will notice that this was at the intersection of 4th and Maple – even fewer will notice the snapshot was taken at 4:00. Few will notice because 4 hours later, 4 blocks away, a 4-bedroom house will catch fire, and there will be no survivors. four will loose their lives. This is a cycle of four.

4 and vampires

novellaFOUR is four letters is the first in a series of novellas from Vampire Novella. Though it is true, vampires are in no way governed by the cycle of 4, they do take advantage of the opportunities when […]
