Lila Lovely strolled into Ellistown at 7:00 p.m. on a dismal Friday night. By the time she left Sunday morning 10 people were annihilated, the church razed and the jail burned.
Her first stop was Wagner's Bar & Grill. Narrowed eyes and a fake grin hid her thoughts as she stepped from the dark street into the darker bar.
Pretending to sip her drink, Lila watched the patrons reflected in the mirror behind the bar. A satisfied smile tugged at the corners of her mouth as The Reverend Thomas Greenway approached. This might be easier than she thought.
Reverend Greenway put his hand on the bar. Lila touched it with her little finger. Startled he looked at her. "My Daddy wants to meet you," she said.
She shuddered in pleasure as he looked down, horrified to see a black spot crawling from under her finger and spreading across his hand. In a panic Greenway rushed outside.
As Lila finished her drink the squeal of truck tires from the street emptied the bar. She smiled at her reflection in the bar mirror. "Hellloooo Daddy," she said; then licked the finger that had touched Greenway. She sucked in her breath. Time for a little more hunting.
