Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Vampires Will Never Hurt You”!

May 22, 2019

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“In Your Memory”, teased previously as an Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Vampires Will Never Hurt You” (MC MD)!

For this story, I’m stepping aside for the week to allow my parent company, Brighton Broadcast Group, to provide an opinion piece on the recent shocking news regarding the existence of the undead. Brighton Broadcast Group is solely responsible for this content, and its opinions of vampires are its own and do not represent the opinions of this station. Please contact them with your responses. Here’s a taste:

[A vaguely martial fanfare of trumpets plays over the segment’s logo. ‘TALKING POINT’, it says, in stark white letters on a red-and-blue striped background. Below, in smaller letters, it says, ‘with Kelly McDonnell’. The logo fades into a scene of a Caucasian woman sitting behind a walnut-paneled desk. Her golden-blonde, wavy hair is pulled back in a sober ponytail, and her bright blue eyes shine with sincerity. Her blue dress is the perfect shade to convey a sense of seriousness, while not looking funereal. Her expression does the same.]

KELLY: Hello everyone. I’m Kelly McDonnell, and this… is Talking Point. Tonight, we’ll be discussing the startling revelations that occurred last week in the wake of the release of the so-called ‘Rafferty Tape’. Although initially doubted by many experts, this recording has been proven genuine, and its implications are clear. Vampires, long thought to be nothing more than creatures of myth and folklore, are real and do exist among us.

[Kelly turns to Camera Two for a close-up. She gazes soulfully at the audience, her lips glistening with a carefully-chosen shade of red lipstick as she continues speaking. She’s careful to avoid looking like she’s flirting with the camera, but at the same time, she’s careful to lean at exactly the right angle to enhance her impressive cleavage.]

KELLY: We here at Talking Point want you all to know that we understand how you must be feeling. This is a very frightening time for America, and many of you are no doubt deeply concerned about the safety of your loved ones after discovering this startling new information. We want to cut through the rampant misinformation and rumor spread by underinformed liberal politicians and get to the truth about these ‘hidden Americans’. To that end, we’ve undertaken an extraordinary mission. We’ve reached out to the vampire community… and tonight, Talking Point will bring an actual vampire on the air to put an end to the confusion and lies once and for all.

Hope you enjoy it!
