AN: This was originally entered in A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words (Micro) Holiday Edition, and was the winner of the White Elephant Award. The banner was the image I entered that went along with this thirty-eight word story (contest rules had a max of fifty words). I do intend to write a full length one-shot around this in the future, but I'm not sure when I'll get it done. For those who don't know, Boris was the creator of Laurent per the Official Guide, and was the closest I could find to a male Norwegian vampire.
