#SampleSunday Chapter 15 - Patriarch
Again, only the first 300 words or so.
Sasha greeted his brother with a long embrace on the steps of Teodor's house. They went inside with Jimmy and a couple of Teodor's sons.
“Misha?” Teodor asked as he sat down on the steps of his porch. “He never leaves his home.”
“That is why I am concerned,” Steopa said. He reached over and took the bottle of vodka out of Teodor's hand.
“Yeah.” Teodor leaned back on his elbows. “I can tell. What is going on?”
“I cannot put my finger on it. We have a vampire, Adelind, that uses magic. She made a drudge out of a local football player, and he is the one sending the hunters after me. And now the coiree...”
“I never told you about it.”
The screen door opened behind him. The twins, Jamie and Chuck, walked out, followed by Jimmy. Jamie pointed to the old factory.
“We're going across the street,” he said.
“Why?” Teodor asked.
“We want to show Jimmy around.”
“Yeah, they are going to show me some werewolf things,” Jimmy said.
“Really?” Teodor shook his head. “I don't know, are you sure this is a good idea?”
Chuck shrugged. “Nothing is going on in there, except Rebecka and Trucker being computer geeks. And the other two vampires are talking in Russian, ignoring us.”
“Still, be careful.”
They left. Steopa opened the vodka. “Thank you for letting us come here tonight.”
“No problem. It's crowded, but then it's always crowded here.”
A small car pulled into the driveway and its motor shut off. Andi got out of the passenger seat, while Silvia got out of the driver's side. Andi ran over to Chuck and gave him a kiss on his cheek. Then she pulled her handbag's strap over her shoulder and walked up to the porch.
