Flash Fiction Friday, Week 7 - Love is Blind

The prompt this week was to write a love story between monsters. It is said that love is blind, and that may not always be a bad thing.

Love is Blind

 “My grandmother says if I marry you, she’ll buy a deck chair and lay out in the sun until she turns to dust.”

“My second cousin asked me if you were a side-show freak with that black veil over your head.”

“My aunt says she can’t stand the thought of you putting your filthy paws on her niece.”

“My sister says you’re nothing but a blood-sucking gold-digger.”

“My brother says you switch at will from being a nice person to a disgusting animal.”

“My grandfather says you’re lying to me about how old you really are.”

“My uncle says he would never feel safe in the same room with you and any of your people.”

“My first cousin says everyone in your whole family is cold as ice.”

“My sister says you’re just a dirty scavenger and only one step above a dog.”

“My grandmother says I shouldn’t marry you because you’re a deadbeat and sleep all day.”

“My father says if he survives to be two million years old, his daughter will never marry a werewolf.”

“My mother says the whole family will turn their backs on me if I marry a vampire.”


“Excuse me, Mr. Amaguk and Ms. Ambrogio. The judge has time for one more couple. Let’s go to his chambers and get you two married.”

“I love you, Pookie.”

“I love you too, Boo.”

“Our eloping was the right thing to do.”

“It sure saved time. When we get home, we can start planning our family vacation.”


  1. I loved this! It was the whole story of their family's reactions to their courtship and their reaction. Priceless!

    1. Thanks, Ginger. This was fun to write. Werewolves and vampires are regarded as natural enemies, so a marriage between the two would not be looked upon too favorably. But, love is stronger than 'family' feuds, and hopefully Pookie and Boo can bring the two together in peace.
