Big Box Bloodbath : Lampreyhead 2
"The action scenes are fantastic! Wow. The story really pulled me in." - Dona Fox, Amazon authorNed didn't dare turn to look. He burst through the doors and out the back door. Sprayed the threshold.He scooped up the bag he'd left at the door. Ran around the side of the store to the front.Bag bouncing in left hand and squirt gun raised in his right, Ned clenched his jaw and rounded the corner to the side of the store. He slowed as he approached the next corner. He crouched and peered. The glass doors glowed with divine light. Along the door sat several white propane tanks, obviously brought by the Banquet. Hands at his eyes, Bogen snarled. "Let us in!" The other three played with Don like cats with a mouse. The woman seized his face. She lifted him from his feet. She reached under her hem and produced a gleaming knife. She lowered her mouth onto his. Waggled her head in mockery of a passionate kiss as the knife came down onto his face. Don thrashed and kicked.What do I do? I can't let him die!She dropped him, Don's face black with gore. His lips seemed impossibly wide, showing blackened teeth in the blue light. She sliced his lips off.The rest fell upon him. Pieces flew. Something like cloth flipped away then flopped like a wet towel.Don's legs kicked in electric agony.Above the scene, a voice called in their strange, hissing language. Atop the roof, glowing sickly yellow from the Top Tech sign, the Judas in a chef's hat waved a white-clad arm. He thrust a white arm behind him to the roof. The skylights! Ned cursed himself. The roof had a dozen skylights. Each were protected only by a grill of thin iron.I have to shut him up!It was easily twenty feet up to the roof. Ned didn't remember the last time he'd leapt that high.He set down his bag and took out the jug of holy water. He crouched. Hesitated. Took three steps back. Cursed himself and ran to the wall. Stomped with all his strength.Mid-air, his foot as his work shoe went flying. The jug loosened in his grip.For a hysterical moment, the jug gurgled inches from his face. He bobbled it and thrust it above his head. He landed on the roof off balance. His right foot slid from beneath him and he landed on his ass. The plastic jug skittered away against the tar paper. The chef hissed again, joyful and grotesque. His white ass pointed at Ned. Scooping up the jug, Ned removed the cap. A beam of light shot from within. He held the jug at arm's length.Ned crept behind the chef. He threw the plastic bottle and ducked away.The chef's back exploded.The chef screamed. He clawed at his back as the holy water savaged him. Scrabbling and twisting, he lost his footing. The chef tumbled over the edge of the building.Ned gained a lease on his lamprey-themed, vampire-prototype life. His new handler Amanda is ready with fashion advice, business acumen, or her gun. He provides days-long orgasms to now higher-paying clients. Ned wants to bury his selfish past. Thanks to his new magic books, he resolves to fight his family of fellow prototypes, the Formulae.When Amanda finds Evil at a big box electronics store, Ned leaps in ready to fight and get that employee discount. But the best employees disappear. Mysterious customers buy startling amounts of stuff. TVs show visions of cannibal blood-feasts. Spirits say the store is doomed. Are the Formulae involved? In the spirit of Clive Barker and Stephen King, Ned gets fishy. Can he save the missing employees? Save the store from massacre? Or will he just swim away with quality electronics at a low price?
