On vampires in fiction

The Twirl and Swirl of Letters

Sorry Twilight, I think you killed vampires in fiction. At least for the next 10 or so years, until they’re retro. They’re getting very over done, in my opinion.

I think it is time that we find a new mythological being to overexpose.

How ’bout goblins? Not much is written about them. I can see it now:

She glances across the room, her eyes locking onto the pale, yellow green ones of the small man in the corner. She can’t look away. “Who is that?” she asks one of the passing students.

“Oh, that’s Matthias,” replies the student. “But you wouldn’t be interested in him. His family is very, very strange…”

It would be a real Beauty and the Beast type story.

Or come up with your own kind. It worked for Highlander. We’re talking first movie.

So, today’s prompt is to write a story/scene featuring a non-traditional mythological being. No vampires. No werewolves. No weird hybrids.
