A hard apple cider in her hand, she moved toward the back of the house. People lounged on the couches and chairs. She said hello and waved to people she knew as she made it out the back door. Maybe someone would let her bum a cigarette. She'd given up smoking years ago, but still craved one when she drank.
She'd always love the backyard patio. They had paved it with bricks that crisscrossed the entire length of the house. Someone had started a fire in the fireplace at one end and buckets full of ice and beer sat at the other.
Gabby took a swig of the tart tangy cider. She spotted a pack of smokes on the table. "Hey, does anyone mind if I bum a cigarette?" she asked the group of guys standing by the beer.
A low husky male voice responded at her ear. "No. Help yourself."
She turned to see a man dressed as Dracula standing behind her. Well, now her night was complete. She'd always had a thing for vampires and this guy was no exception. Wavy dark hair curled around his high pointed collar and green eyes smiled at her from a pale face that would have given a movie star a run for their money.
"Do I know you?" she asked.
He blinked slowly and purposefully licked his lips. He opened his eyes and then very slowly perused her body from her chest down to her high heels and back up again. "You look delectable."
