Blood and guts

by Anonymous | Score: 8600

Erica wanted to check out the antique store, so she opened the door and rang the bell attached to the wall. She started looking around and saw old salt shakers and telephones. But she didn't care about those.
The bell of the door rang again and this time Daniel went in. 
"I'm sorry," said Daniel. "I should've listened to you, we can travel into the past together"
"It's ok, just help me find the grandfather clock," said Erica. There was silence...until they found the grandfather clock which was hidden behind some old dressers and mirrors. They twisted the hands of the clock and they traveled into the past.

They arrived in 1922, 100 years back, and the environment was very different  100 years ago.
There were no cars, no cellphones, it was so crazy.
"I will remember this," said Daniel.  
"We need to find George Shapen," said Erica. 
"Where on earth are we going to find him?" asked Daniel.
"I don't know, but we have to find a few people who know him so that we can save Castroville from the vampires," said Erica. "Let's split up." 
"Great idea," said, Daniel. 
Daniel went to a bar, went up to the bar attendant and told him:
"Can i have a beer, on the house?" 
"coming up, have a seat" said the bar attendant.
"So, have you heard about George Shapen?" Daniel asked a person who was sitting at the bar table.
