We first introduced you to Rosa, a goth chick in L.A. who dreams about the romantic, ruffle-shirt-clad vampire lifestyle, in Vulture's exclusive excerpt last month. She hasn't a clue that Dave Marshall — the sweet, nondescript convenience-store clerk — is actually a vampire whose un-life is not so glamorous. Rent must be paid, the annoying boss must be tolerated, and cute girls like Rosa seem to always go after rich jerks rather than him. Will Dave's dead-end job go on for eternity?
