Never Ceese by Sue Dent
Chapter 5 & 6 by Dawn

Mama tries to encourage Ceese to get along with Richard, but Ceese won’t listen. Ceese admits that vampires harmed her brother, who was also named Richard, and that she worries Richard might be one of the men who harmed her brother. We find out that Ceese has come to Mama for help in breaking the “curse”. Mama wants Richard and Ceese to work together to break their curses. Mama believes they can help each other.

Peter Drummond has come to speak to Richard. They exchange insults and Richard pays him for the goats. Mama intrudes, right before Richard decides to eat Peter, and she tells Peter that a wolf has been seen in the area. Peter appears to leave but listens from another room where he over hears Richard commenting about using a silver bullet on the wolves.
