The Signboard

“I am not sure but I think Serafino is a vampire name.”

“How could you be so mean? I see you are already jealous of me.”

“You are getting it wrong; I would be the happiest person if he proposes to you.”

“Then why…”

“His name, it gives me a strange feeling…”

“Just shut up and don’t spoil this evening.”

Serafino came; he was an exceedingly handsome person. As they entered, he looked at the signboard hanging above the entrance and turned pale.

“Is that garlic?” he asked in a choked voice.

Her friend looked at her with worried eyes.

  1. I thought Serafino was a sherry!
    Clever idea.

  2. Dear IB,

    Handsome or not, Serafino is a vampire. Time to flee.



  3. That's what friends are for... :)

  4. That seems to be a honest and well meaning friend. I guess it was she who hung up the garlic? Great story.

  5. Sometimes the foolishness of our friends really makes life difficult.
