God, what had they twisted me into? I wasn’t supposed to be like this. I was a normal guy with parents in Cincinnati, friends, a girlfriend, my own business. I liked ﬂashy clothes, reading dime magazines, and was trying to turn myself into a writer one of these nights. So what that I was also a vampire? Killing people wasn’t part and parcel with the condition. Hell, I didn’t even have to kill to eat, just drain a little blood from cattle that could spare it . . Bad line of thought, that. Head it off.
Strome was revealing new depths. I never thought the man was so musically inclined. “He was that high up? ” “Not that I heard. There was a hell of a mess with Slick and Lebredo suddenly both gone, but Gordy stepped in and kept things smooth, and that’s what the big bosses wanted. No waves. ” So there was a very good possibility that Mitchell remembered me from then, which might better explain his initial reaction. It wasn’t my looking young, but that I was the same Fleming who’d been around when Slick Morelli and Lucky Lebredo killed each other.
And blood. Not a ghost scent from my imaginings, nor the fresh stuff of a ﬂowing wound, but the muted kind that lurked beneath the skin. It was always present, but I wasn’t always aware, like the way you ignore trafﬁc noise. For a few deep and profound seconds it struck me that every one of the tough guys crowding this room, the muscle, the sharps, the thieves, the killers, from Strome to the boss in charge, were all little more than walking bags of blood. I could feed myself sick on any of them.
