Five Fingers of Death: The Black Hand and Writing On The Wall

“The moving finger writes and having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
Nor all thy tears wash out a Word of it.”

-The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

. . .

The Turkish diplomat walked the streets of Moscow.

He wrapped his scarf around his face as much to hide himself as to keep out the Russian cold.

It had been a hectic couple of days ever since Turkey had shot down a Russian plane.

The diplomat was struggling to ensure that the incident didn’t lead to the outbreak of war.

He stood looking at the view of the Kremlin from his vantage point.

The diplomat suddenly felt a tapping on his shoe.

He looked down and saw a severed charcoal burnt Black Hand.

The Black Hand crawled up his pants and then up his jacket and then proceeded to strangle him with his scarf.

The diplomat fell to the ground quite dead.

The Black Hand then grabbed a Samsung Galaxy 6 Smart Phone from a shocked tourist (who ran away after the phone was grabbed not wanting to argue with a moving severed hand) and took a photo of the dead Turkish diplomat on the ground with the walls of the Kremlin as a backdrop.

It then posted the photo on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Facebook page with the inscription written in both Turkish and Russian, “Go fuck yourself, you syphilis infested running dog of Turkey.”

And then signed it,
“Yours respectfully,
Vladimir Putin.”

The Black Hand then pulled down the Turkish diplomat’s pants and undershorts.

The hand then interrupted a mugging on a nearby Moscow street corner to grab the mugger’s large butcher knife.

Both would-be mugger and would-be victim fled at the sight of the severed charcoal burnt Black Hand carrying the knife down the street.

The Black Hand then returned to the slain Turkish diplomat and cut off his penis.

It then stuck the penis in the Turkish diplomat’s mouth and once again took another photo with the Samsung Galaxy 6 Smart Phone.

It then posted the photo to Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Twitter account with the message, “Chew on this for awhile you mongrelized motherfucker” adding the hash tag

The hand then grabbed the penis and crawled into a nearby Moscow post office.

It helped itself to some postage stamps, an envelope and some string.

It put the diplomat’s penis in the envelope, grabbed some glue, sealed the envelope, attached the appropriate postage and then grabbed a pen and addressed the envelope to

Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Chief Eunuch
Turkish Presidential Palace
Ankara, Turkey

And then wrote a notation on the back of the envelope in Turkish:

Attention Erdogan:
Now you have one.

It then dropped the appropriately addressed and proper postage stamped envelope into a nearby mail box.

All in all a good day’s work for the severed charcoal burnt Black Hand who had been causing trouble throughout the world ever since the Battle of Kosovo in 1389.

    Very hardcore!
    Anything can start war, isn’t it?
    But where’s the love???
    Not so long ago when war started because of a woman’s love.
    Now, you shoot any plane or vehicle from other countries, revenge is yet began.
    There are wars caused by love for a woman or women like the fights of the Sabine women at the time Romulus ruled, or Anthony gone to war against his own folk for Cleopatra, or for the love of Helen of Troy …

    Where are the love has gone too???? 😛

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, most of my vampire novel chapters where the Black Hand appears as a character are pretty well hardcore horror chapters.

      Not much love in them. 😛

      Yes, there doesn’t seem to be too much love in the world at the moment.

      As Solomon wrote, “There’s a time to love, and a time to hate. A time of war, and a time of peace.”

      Our time seems to be a time of hate and war.

  2. Nicholas C. Rossis said,

    One has to wonder which one is crazier – Putin or Erdogan.

    The irony, of course, is that Turkey shot down an aircraft that violated its airspace for all of 17″. Turkish aircraft violated Greek airspace over 2,000 times last year, something they’ve been doing systematically for as long as I can remember…

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Hm. That’s very interesting, Nicholas.

      I didn’t know that.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        I saw it repeated in a few media this morning. I wonder if that’s Putin’s doing. Let the propaganda wars begin.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, propapaganda always precedes war.

        Goebbels’ speeches preceded the Anschluss, the Sudetenland, Czechoslovskia and Poland.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        I’m guessing Russia will try to push a wedge between NATO members by invoking its traditional alliance with Greece against Turkey. Our Minister of Defense is from the far-right. Our PM, well, you know. He still has Soviet fantasies.

        And while all this is true, Turkey only now let NATO use the country’s air bases to bomb IS (using it as a pretext to bomb the Kurds), while Greece has been doing so all along.

        Putin also suggested that Turkish higher-ups are lining their pockets by buying IS oil through the Turkmen lands. That’s why they wanted yesterday’s bombing to stop and they shot down the plane.

        A topsy-turvy world. Let me know if you can make sense of all this mess.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        That’s why I’ve got a geopolitical vampire novel which has got a royal dynastic feud and rivalry among ancient Egyptian gods (Isis and Osiris vs. Set) as well an animate moving severed charcoal burnt Black Hand with an advanced evil consciousness wreaking havoc everywhere it goes- when you realize this- then the world starts making perfect sense. 😀

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Lol – certainly beats watching the news 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Glad to hear. 😀

  3. anaatcalin said,

    Extremely well written, dear Chris, as always! As macabre as it sounds, I couldn’t stop laughing. I’m not sure I spotted the meaning behind it correctly, so I’m not going to make a fool of myself here, but please consider my wink – I know there’s more to it. I love your symbolism.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you, Ana. 🙂

      As my friend Nicholas recently noted, I still manage to find a way to inject humour into a dark situation.

      Yes, symbolism often plays a part in my writing.

  4. Hyperion said,

    Chris, this is hard hitting and clearly defines what you would like to include in the outcome of the new Caliphate, Ottoman Empire II. If the Balkans and eastern Europe think about it enough they might want to ally with the severed burnt black hand of Kosovo. They might like to parachute the severed burnt black hand of Kosovo behind enemy lines. I can say with fantastical surety, the severed burnt black hand of Kosovo would do a better job of setting things on a correct historical course. Of course, the lack of adroit use of political correctness could result in calls by liberals to arm our enemies so they can bomb free nations and give them something exciting to watch on the evening news. 😉

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, and of course it’s the Balkans and Eastern Europe that are most opposed to militant Islam.

      It’s only those countries that were spared being part of the Ottoman Empire after the West’s victory at the Battle of the Gates of Vienna in 1683 who currently think that dialogue and more condoms and rock music videos in the Middle East will allow the people in those countries to be more accommodating and less bloodthirsty.

      Then they imagine the world will unite in singing one giant global chorus of John Lennon’s song Imagine with Bill Gates lip synching “Imagine no possessions” as he checks his stock market portfolio on-line on his carefully disguised iPhone.

      Barack Obama would wear a Paris t-shirt with the Eiffel Tower as a 1960s hippy peace symbol singing “Imagine no countries” until his aide whispers to him that he’d then be out of a job as President of the U.S.

      He’d quietly walk away saying, “I never did much care for the songs the Beatles wrote after they split up.”

      On the other hand “No Hell below us” would meet with vigourous applause by the charcoal burnt blackened ghosts of Hitler, Josef Stalin and numerous jihadi suicide bombers (who are still wondering when the 70 dark-eyed houri virgins are going to arrive and take them away from the flames to enjoy the eons of endless celestial sex that was promised them).

      So in the meantime, the West will continue to arm its enemies and stay tuned to CNN for exciting news stories 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        You know, you write with amazing clarity of the situation. I actually can’t visualize ot any other way! May the charcoal burnt black hand of Kosovo save us.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        All those aging hippies who stand around hugging one another and singing Kumbaya will be so disappointed they didn’t end up saving the world.

        All those years of smoking pot will have gone to waste.

        Along with their minds.

      • Hyperion said,

        That is a true statement. Rome burned while Nero played fiddle and the world burned while the hippies sang Kumbaya.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Indeed it did.

        Hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving, my friend. 🙂

        And if you need an extra hand to help you eat all those turkey drum sticks, I’ve posted another chapter about the Black Hand just now. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        Thank you Chris! Hope all is well with you and some big bonus is on it’s way for you to publish your Vampire Novels. You are the new sensation waiting to happen. Hairy Plopper doesn’t stand a chance against the Vampire Transhumanists. Fifty Shades of Gray, millions of dollars for very poor writing. Geez Michelangelo blowing his tank apart at the site of Sherrielock Holmes nude will change the next generations view of sexuality and water tanks will explode all over the globe from water borne merry making! Sherrielock Holmes might even get a movie deal with all the Vampire gang in on the act.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thanks, Daniel. 🙂

        Yes, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that all this will happen.

        Michelangelo will become the world’s first lobster poster boy.

        And Hugh Hefner will have a lobster tank brought into the Playboy mansion before he finally keels over himself from major cardiac arrest after gazing on the Modigliani painting
        of Sherrielock Holmes.

        Lobsters and hamsters will be let loose at Hefner’s funeral as the actor who plays the part of Amadeus in the movies plays Mozart’s Die Fledermaus at the organ.

      • Hyperion said,

        Michelangelo will be a big hit with his cork popping and tank cracking act. Sherrielock Holmes should make a guest appearance. to start the festivities.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Michelangelo and Sherrielock Holmes will be very big hits indeed.

        I’ve just posted the vampire novel chapter that shows the relationship between Sherrielock Holmes, Louis Rocher and Michelangelo’s creator Dr. Cadbury Rocher- how they are all connected.

      • Hyperion said,

        I’m there now!
