Prized Collection

He stepped back from installing the newest containment units which he had ordered from Russia. His hands covered in oil and grease, he couldn’t help but tingle with anticipation as to how he was going to fill the new containment units. He loved the rush he got from aquring things for his collection.

He looked over to the opposite side of the opulent room, filled witn persian rugs and satin and so many containers for his prized collection. He couldn’t believe that he had only started this a couple years ago.

Even though the room was a bit chilly for his taste it was still his absolute favorite in the whole mansion.

He quickly gathered his yellowing record book and began checking off the ones he had already, as he passed by each container.

“Red hair, brown hair, black hair, blonde. Dyed. Green eyes, blue, brown, hazel. Ranging 5’ to 5’11”. He finally stopped at the last container, to see his newest addition, rubbing away at the frost. The woman with blue hair and a tattooed body was blissfully sleeping.

    AMAZING! I loved it! I was drawn in from the very first line. Oh and if I may say… the last line is absolutely killer.

    It definitely counts as horror in the same vein as Dracula. I’d say it shares many of Dracula’s qualities such as being stylish, psychological, very cultural and… well, really quite unkind.

    Thank you very much. :D

    The concept’s fantastic, and definitely chilling, though I think starting almost every sentence with “he” can make your story a little boring. The last paragraph you vary it up nicely, which makes it the most interesting part of the piece.

    Yeah, but I didn’t want the man to have a name so I kept referring to him as “he”.

    Thanks for the feature, whoever is in charge of that. :P

    I didn’t look at the tags until after I’d read it, though I suspected he was up to something nefarious as I read. I was definitely drawn in by that first line as well.

    Thanks. :D I tried to keep his acts very shady until that very last line.

    I’m picturing the cryo-pods from Futurama as I reread this, by the way… ooh there’s Weird Al.
