Count Dracula Primary

     An eerie gust of wind blew numerous multi-colored leaves away, leaving the students of Count Dracula’s Primary in a painful dismay.

     It was typically a swell day in Count Dracula Primary. The teachers brought up a new subject in school where they were learning how to become bats to spread Covid-19. The students practiced vampiring like usual. Special news awaited them as they received the bloodsome honor award from Count Dracula himself. This meant they could come to the beneficial banquet where they had boiling blood, bone meat, and the ashes of the dead from the local graveyard. The posters that said “Help Increase the Spread of Covid-19” made the students cackle even harder. The students had to drive all the way to a huge dusty barren land in order to attend the celebration, which was right next to the President’s aunt's funeral. The mini vampires enjoyed how feeble the President was after his devastating loss. This was just the beginning to a brutal day that the vampires never expected.
  
     The evening banquet was up to a great start until the servers brought out the food. The appetizer, main course, and desert all had garlic. The atrocious vegetable that every vampire feared! The putrid fumes made each vampire faint in an orderly way. If that wasn’t worse enough, a huge pipe had entered each vampire’s body sucking the blood out. Gruesome fire rose and lit each vampire as a candle! The ashes were fed to the dogs. Now you might be wondering who, why, and what happened? The real culprits were the children of the moon; they were the biggest foes of the vampires after they found out that Count Dracula had one of their members for supper. They disguised themselves as servers and chefs, and pureed 27 whole garlics. They took a broken pipe, stuck it in the vampires’ bodies and left on the burner for a couple of hours to ignite fire. They put the ashes into a portable suitcase and fed it to the stray dogs on the streets. Thus, the children of the moon defeated the vampires once and for all!
