Skim Blood and Savage Verse (2017) Angel Martinez (Offbeat Crimes)

Skim Blood and Savage Verse

How could he have even thought about not celebrating his thirty-fifth birthday? Especially if it meant it gave her an excuse to invite all the old money and local officials to the affair. And outside? Of course it had to be outside. The weather in June was glorious and Carrington always exaggerated the symptoms of his ‘illness’ for attention.

“Manda… I’m sorry.”

Amanda stopped in mid-stride on her way out of the room and pinned him with her best glare. “Don’t start. If it’s about your mom, you’re not her keeper and you can’t make her like me. If it’s about getting me to come today, I had some great food. If it’s about not being the world’s best vamp and being a sucky partner again, shut it. Not doing this with you today.”

“Mr. Graham, we’re from the 77th. The paranormal crimes unit.”

“Erasmus, please.” He led them back to a desk and produced enough chairs for everyone to sit. “I do hear about your unit sometimes. My mom’s wife’s cousin is your department commander.”

“Oh, thank freaking jam on toast,” Amanda said. “Explaining us first takes longer than the interview sometimes.”

Horribly cliché, of course, but once his daylight color vision had gone to hell, he had stopped trying to buy any clothes not black, white or gray. Everything else was simply disappointing once he stepped outside.

They spent the rest of the shift running down a report of a phoenix near Penn’s Landing, which turned out to be someone’s escaped macaw, and talking to a man who claimed to have seen pixies around his garbage cans, which were in actuality a combination of rats and too much tequila.
