Couple’s Court: Jenna and Caleb Style

A hush falls over the courtroom. Spectators stare. A dark-haired woman holds a baseball bat covered in blood and bits of gore. She faces off against a tall, pale man. An ax rests at the base of the table he stands behind.

“It’s about the bloodlust thing.” Jenna declares from her side of the room. Her ponytail whips as she turns her head to face Caleb. “I get it. You’re a New Racer and can’t really resist, but seriously. I love you and all, but we have to focus on my needs too.”

“I control the urge.” Caleb’s eyes spiral into dark red swirls of blood. “I hunt to find snacks that keep me satiated. Don’t forget you freely offered your wrist after I saved you from those crazy New Racers who wanted to kill you.”

“That was different. You were dying. Now it’s all about your fun.”

“It’s not. That’s the reason we’re here. I had to go hunt that other night because nothing else was available.”

Jenna puts her hand over her heart. “I need my blood to stay in this body.”

“I just asked for a sip. With the zombie apocalypse in full swing, don’t I — I mean we — deserve a little fun?”

“Can’t we go kayaking or something? It’s not like the zombies are going to swim to the middle of the lake to meet us.”

Caleb’s lips twitch into a smile. “Never say never.”

“I want some romance.” Her hand thumps the table. “What about a nice dinner back at the inn now that we’re finally safe?”

Judge Baaart bangs his gavel. “This isn’t couples therapy. It’s court. Let’s get back to the issue at hand.”

Jenna faces the judge. “I demand to be reimbursed for the loss of my favorite weapon. Caleb borrowed it to go hunting and forgot it in the woods after he caught a deer and sucked it dry.”

“I said I’d get you another gun.” Ignoring Judge Baaart, Caleb faces Jenna. “ I love you.”

“Not enough to keep my favorite weapon safe.”

“I’d buy you a million weapons if it means you’re happy.”

“You and I both know money is worthless these days.”

“I was trying to be romantic. How about I scour some empty houses for the perfect engagement ring?”

“Ring?”

“Anything for you.”

Jenna’s smile lights her face. “I’m good with that.”

“Case dismissed.” The judge yells. “And just in time. Those damn zombies are breaking down the door again.”
