Sora Aoi: Renfield’s Heartbreak

The billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire Set sat in the chair of his living room and read a story in The Times of London about how millions of young Chinese males were heartbroken when they heard the news that Japanese porn star Sora Aoi was getting married.

“Can you imagine,” Set remarked to his butler and valet Athelstan who was busy dusting and polishing the furniture, “people becoming heartbroken over a porn star getting married?”.

“It positively boggles the mind, sir,” remarked Athelstan who polished the jar containing Donovan’s brain from the 1953 sci-fi film.

“What is this world coming to?” Set shrugged his shoulders.

“I was pondering the very same thing the other day, sir,” quipped Athelstan who had dropped a glass globe of the world the day before that had smashed into a thousand pieces.

“I think I shall retire to my library and read the works of Virgil in the original Latin,” Set put his paper down and headed upstairs.

“There’s nothing like Dido of Carthage killing herself on a burning funeral pyre to make one forget that a contemporary porn star is getting married, sir,” Athelstan discovered an unopened bag of marshmallows in the fireplace.

As Set entered the second floor of his mansion and walked down the hall, he thought he heard loud crying and sobbing coming from inside Renfield’s bedroom.

“Amadeus,” Set asked his personal concert pianist as he passed him in the hallway, “Is that Renfield I can hear crying through his bedroom door?”.

“Yes, boss,” Amadeus nodded, “Renfield’s been like that since this morning when he heard the news that Japanese porn star Sora Aoi is getting married.”

    What did I just read?! I don’t know what you’re going for here, but for some reason, I thought this was really funny! The comments Set’s servant was making are maybe the best part! 😂

      If this chapter made you laugh, Jessica, that is indeed what I was going for. 😂

      And Athelstan’s comments are always quite good. 👍

      Athelstan is the quintessential English gentleman’s gentleman with that quintessential very dry British sense of humour. 😀

    Btw, have you read Resurrection by Mike Bennet? There’s a whole series which starts with that book. If you haven’t, I suggest you do. I think you’ll really like that series.

    Coffee…and you…great way to start the day. When a porn star gets married, the fantasy ends and you have to find a new imaginary wife for yourself…that explains the tears…

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks very much, George. 🙂

      Yes, it explains Renfield’s tears all right as his fantasy comes to an end.

    Ah, the devastation is complete until one realizes that the Japanese were never subverted by the Puritans nor the Victorians and so she will continue to make films with a new found passion. Renfield need not worry. This was full of great references and symbologies. It was hilarious too.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks very much, Daniel. 🙂

      Yes, those good old style of particular genre Japanese films will keep on rolling out.

      And Canadian vampire hunter Dracul Van Helsing will probably not have the same Renfieldian reaction that Renfield did until he hears the devastating news that Yuu Kawakami is getting married.

      Or at least that’s what I’ve been told by Renfield. 😉

    HA! I snort-laughed! 🙂
    But, AW, my poor Renfield! 😦
    Once again, you weave important ponderful things with some fun things!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks, Carolyn.

      And I imagine Renfield will once again find himself back in the saddle even before he himself knows it. 😉
