Serena Slain

It was the autumn of 1924.

And the wealthy Egyptian vampire Set was showing his fiancee Serena the house he had bought them.

Soviet secret police assassin Leonid Terovsky watched the couple.

He then stepped forward into the moonlight, pulled out a revolver and fired six shots into Set.

Who didn’t die.

Since he was a vampire.

Terrified and confused, Leonid stepped back.

Angered, Set approached the assassin.

Leonid pulled out his other revolver and started firing again.

This time in the direction of Serena.

Who being mortal immediately hit the ground.

Covered in blood.

“No,” Set screamed as he turned around.

He rushed to Serena and held her in his arms where she died.

Terovsky fled down the street.

Set continued to hold the slain Serena in his arms as he wept.

Sherrielock Holmes (who was Sherlock Holmes’ lesser known twin sister) was walking down the street when she saw the scene.

She approached.

Set explained what happened.

“I wish I had the chance to turn her into a vampiress as she lay dying but her death happened too quickly,” Set wept.

“I know what you mean,” Sherrielock said, “My love died before he had the opportunity to make himself immortal.”

She told Set how her husband Dr. Louis Rocher had made an extract from the Lingzhi Supernatural mushroom which when she ate it had made her immortal.

But Dr. Rocher had waited to eat the Lingzhi Supernatural Mushrooms himself.

And before he could do so, he ended up being shot down by the Red Baron during the Great War of 1914-18.

“It’s too bad Louis wasn’t still alive,” Sherrielock said, “he might have been able to bring your fiancee back from the dead.”

“Did you and he have any children?” Set asked.

“Yes, five,” Sherrielock replied, “three boys and two girls.”

“I wonder if any of them or their descendants will have your husband Louis’ genius,” Set reflected.

“Possibly,” Sherrielock answered.

Set resolved to have Serena’s body frozen in the hopes that one of Dr. Louis Rocher’s and Sherrielock Holmes’ descendants would be a scientific genius capable of bringing Serena back from the dead.

In the meantime, Set tracked down the assassin Leonid Terovsky, had him tortured and later killed.

But Set gleaned from Terovksy that Soviet Communist Party General-Secretary Josef Stalin had ordered the assassination.

Set resolved to destroy both the USSR and the worldwide Bolshevik movement.

But as Set surveyed the world stage, there did not seem to him too many politicians who were capable of destroying both the USSR and the worldwide Bolshevik movement.

Until a young Austrian born politician creating a ruckus in Bavaria came into his sights.

The name of the young Austrian born politician in Bavaria making a name for himself?

Adolf Hitler.

His movement the National Socialist German Workers’ Party- the NSDAP- better known as the Nazis.

Set moved to Germany in 1925 in an effort to better promote and finance the movement.

Just like a stone thrown into water creates unforeseen ripple effects, evil like good can create the same ripple effects.

And no one knows where the ripple effects will end.

    History truly is a tapestry where every thread leads to another until all the threads create a picture of time across a millisecond event or eons. One only need to step back to examine the scene depicted or move in to find the single thread and then pull it to see where it leads. Great chapter Chris!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks very much, Daniel. πŸ™‚

      That is a great description of history as a tapestry where every thread leads to another until all the threads create a picture of time.

      That is indeed what history is like.

      • Hyperion said,

        I can spend days pulling threads and each a complete story unto itself. πŸ˜ƒ

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        To say nothing of gathering the nets that bring in mermaids. πŸ™‚

      • Hyperion said,

        Hmmmm, now that you mention it, pulling in nets with mermaids takes priority over everything. πŸ€—πŸ€—

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Indeed. LOL !

  2. Dracul Van Helsing said,

    Reblogged this on Dracul Van Helsing and commented:

    A vampire novel chapter I wrote over a year ago.

    But it ties in with some vampire novel chapters I have written recently.

    Those damn ripples are still effecting…looks what’s happening in the US today!!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, what happened in Nazi Germany is now happening in the U.S. today.

      It’s like that old Vincent Price movie Diary of A Madman based on Guy de Maupassant’s short story The Horla in which the judge (played by Price) who sentences a murderer to death ends up being possessed by the Horla (an evil demonic spirit) that had possessed the murderer he had sentenced.

      The Horla leaves the murderer’s body and enters the judge’s.

      It struck me when I first saw the film as what happened to the U.S. after WWII that whatever evil spirits were present in Germany culminating in the Third Reich had entered the U.S. and were growing in influence,

      It really seems to have culminated and grown to full fruition with the Trump Presidency.

      • George F. said,

        Spooky shit. I think I saw that old movie too…

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        It was quite a good film.

        In addition to Vincent Price with his eloquent speaking voice and magnificent acting ability, there were also a few beautiful looking actresses in the movie I recall.

        I first saw it as a teen-ager.

        No doubt after seeing that film, I went to bed that night and dreamed about making out with them.

    Evil is like a box of chocolates. It tastes great and rots your teeth. This was a poignant scene and in this, Set represents everyman. Our innate nature is evil, the beast within, and often trauma releases the Kraken who seeks revenge-justice. We take what is not ours to enjoy and profit on death and misery. It is our nature and only the most noble and disciplined can rise above what they truly are – a compassionless beast. Like the leopard that eats the warthog alive and screaming, the end always justifies the means. The muslim militant group Eye-Sore knows this and executes their evil with impunity. The two greatest militaries in the world have done little to stop the spread of Eye-Sore because they fail to understand where the well-spring of this evil is born. They do toast quite a few of them but not nearly enough. That’s my over caffienated toilet philosophy of the day. 🧐

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I think your over caffeinated philosophy of the day explains Augustine’s theory of original sin and its further elaboration by British journalist and writer G. K. Chesterton quite nicely, Daniel.

      No doubt when you sat down and had those 10 extra cups of coffee which you really shouldn’t have had (and probably wouldn’t have had if Tiger Mom hadn’t been washing her hair due to Jefferey the otter mischievously putting molasses in her curling rollers the night before which of course explains why Jefferey is currently absent from the house today and is down deep in the river in an effort to save his otter derriere from that dreaded sequel known as Tiger Mom’s revenge), you had no idea you’d end up with a eloquent and easy to understand explanation of the theory that you’d be able to impart to humanity.

      Molasses in curling rollers like a pebble thrown in a tranquil stream likewise has its ripple effects for both good or ill.

      • Hyperion said,

        LoL! I do enjoy the historical references and I have been very busy saving otterly amazing pictures of Jeffery doing inappropriate things for his unexpurgated unauthorized autobiography. Molasses in the hair rollers is a death wish only Jeffery would attempt.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Indeed. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…

        And no doubt your daughter’s and granddaughters when they heard the news are already starting to write the elegies they’ll read aloud at Jefferey’s memorial service.

      • Hyperion said,

        Ha ha haaaa! Poor Jeffery. He has no chance when the Dragon daughters gang up to enforce the discipline they demand of their otter boys.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        ROTFLMFAO !

      • Hyperion said,


  5. David Redpath said,

    My condolences to the Ancient Egyptian Vampire Set. I do hope there is a happy ending in store for those two love birds 🐦.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I hope there’s a happy ending in store for these two love birds as well, David.πŸ’•
