Six Sentence Sunday

So, here are my Six Sentence Sundays. all at once.

Night takes over the city as Jake Masterson awakens. He verifies with the clock that it really is night and not the heavily draped windows playing a joke on him. He reaches for his shirt and jeans on the dark red carpet, putting them on quickly. He makes his way to the kitchen and to the refrigerator; he rearranges some containers of food and some fruits and vegetables from the front, so he can reach the back. He pulls out a crystal container and gets a wine glass, pouring himself a drink of what looks like red wine. After warming it up in the microwave, he gently swirls the liquid in the glass and then takes a sip, making a disgusted face – he still has a hard time choking it down even after all these years.

Jake sat at his computer desk typing his latest concert review for the magazine, trying very hard to ignore Vaughn, who was blowing up his phone with text messages, desperately trying to get Jake out for the night. Vaughn’s latest was a quickly shot video; Vaughn kissing a pretty young woman and pulling away, revealing his fangs before sinking them into the woman’s neck, making sure to let some of her blood spill down her shoulder.

“Yeah, well, it won’t be all the time, like it used to be.”
“Cindy and Jenna, this is Jake, and we have a rich history together.” Vaughn smiled.

Vaughn watched as Jake scanned the bar; the couple in front of them moving, so Jake had a clearer view. Jake finally sees the bartender from the photo and she is more beautiful to him in person.
She was in the photo I took earlier,” Vaughn said with a huge grin, “She’s the reason you came out tonight.”
She was in the middle of making a drink when she looked up and saw Jake watching her.
