For several moments, the two only eyed each other warily, neither willing to make the first move to break the stalemate. Alarmed faces peeked in from the kitchen, and even the candles seemed to flicker uneasily.
Then Marikir snarled, tossing his mask and hat aside. Fangs glinted as his deathly pale face was revealed. Moirae, suddenly realizing the exact nature of the peril she faced, reached quick as a wink for a wooden stake that lay on the table. It had been meant as decoration, a sort of macabre party favor, but now it served a much more important purpose.
As the vampire lunged for her throat, she braced herself and the stake. The creature of the night had no time to change course, no chance to twist away in mid-lunge.
The next moment, the stake was through Marikir's heart. The last monster was defeated, and Moirae, the Bouncer, stood triumphant.
With the guests all called back in from the kitchen -- carrying plenty of champagne for the celebration -- the party went on into the wee hours, and a grand time was had by all.
