Love Bites

He’s a bit of a goth is Vinnie, with his skull rings and black eye make-up. I know I’m The One because Saturday he’s taking me to meet his parents.

Clutching his leathers, we ride on his bike up to a huge mansion, all topiary bushes and, inside, marble floors and candles. It’s like a film set waiting for the actors but the wine is real enough.

"Where’s everyone?" I slur.

"They’re here waiting. They’re going to enjoy you."

The dining room is bare, except for two silver coffins.

The lids rise, as my eyelids close.

"Mum! Dad! Dinner’s served."
