A Mysterious Stranger In The Wild West

A Mysterious Stranger In The Wild West

It was a warm autumn evening in October of 1880 when a tall dark stranger arrived in the Wild West town of Hayden Colorado.

He did not arrive in town on horse or by stagecoach like most strangers did.

He just suddenly appeared in the night out of nowhere.

Although seconds before, a bat 🦇 had flown out of the night sky and landed on the main street in town in front of The Wild Tomatoes and Mushroom Saloon.

Where the bat had once flown, a tall distinguished man in elegant European style dress now stood.

The man with top hat and elegant cloak and coat with an elegant walking stick on whose top was the engraved carved head of a black wolf 🐺 entered through the swinging doors of the saloon.

The hustle and bustle of the saloon suddenly stopped when the stranger walked through the door.

All eyes turned on to the elegantly dressed stranger.

Every rough and tough rough and tumble cowboy looked upon the stranger with contempt.

The gunslinger with the meanest reputation in town walked up to the man and knocked off his top hat while laughing, “Well, well, what do we have here? A bit of a dandy eh?”.

The stranger gave the gunslinger a kick that sent the man flying out the door into the street.

The gunslinger’s best friend immediately pulled out his six shooter and fired all 6 bullets into the stranger.

The stranger did not even wince let alone keel over to the floor like any normal man would have done.

“Now, gentlemen,” Belvedere the bartender called out, “you know the Boss doesn’t like guns being fired in the saloon.”

Silence fell in the saloon.

The Boss was a breathtakingly beautiful Englishwoman with a fierce temper.

They didn’t call her the Dominatrix of the Wild West for nothing.

She’d quite literally whip any wrongdoer.

“What happened to the bullets?” Asked the startled 😱 man who fired the shots.

The elegantly dressed stranger calmly opened his right hand (which had been clenched into a fist) and dropped six bullets on to the floor one by one.

Everyone in the saloon immediately looked away from the stranger.

With the exception of Belvedere the bartender.

“Care for a drink, sir?” Belvedere was wondering if his boss Miss Sherrielock Holmes would come running down the stairs from her office wondering what the shots were about.

The elegant stranger took off his hat, cloak, coat and wolf’s head walking stick and laid them on the bar.

“I think I shall,” said the man as he took off his elegant black leather gloves.

“A glass of wine 🍷 perhaps?” Belvedere suggested.

“Yes,” said the man in a heavy Eastern European accent that sounded either Hungarian or Romanian, “I do drink wine 🍷 and I hope someday no one says otherwise.”

    Alright!
    For sure I would love to … I mean, Sherrielock Holmes, my twin sister would love to whip that ghostly man’s bootie till it glistened as red as a fresh tomatoes. The trouble is, he is the Undead … and the undead does not bleed.
    Unless, you stake him at his heart … what really did kill him was a love that died too early in his lifetime … He was looking for that immortal love … whoever that is or was …

      Yes like Luke Evans’ Vlad III character in the 2014 Dracula Untold movie who longs to meet his wife again.

      Or like Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ portrayal of Dracula in that TV series they sadly and stupidly cancelled where Dracula longs to meet his long lost love again and believes he’s found her in Mina Harker.

        That was something the TV firms always did.
        So many of those damn good series were cancelled for some stupid reasons.
        I hate it when that happens.
        That Dracula show was really good.
        It was simply different than the tradition Dracula movie, but it was damn good.
        I felt so close to Jonathan in that show and one can see those pain in his eyes, it was so deep and far away.
        That young man had had been through much in life just as the actor Keanu Reeves did as well.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, a lot of the TV networks are stupid that way.

        I’m still angry at the ABC television network in the U.S. for cancelling the 1998 TV series Cupid where Jeremy Piven played Cupid the Greek god of love sent to Earth in the 1990s and Paula Marshall who plays his psychiatrist Dr. Claire Allen who thinks he’s just delusional.

        Yes, the Dracula TV series with Jonathan Rhys Meyers was excellent.

        It was not as you say the traditional Dracula but it was still an excellent series.

        I liked how Dracula tried to bring in Nikola Tesla’s ideas of free energy and free electricity for all but he, like Tesla, was sabotaged by big business interests who stood to make more money in an energy economy based on petroleum.

        And you’re right, you could see the sadness in Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ eyes while watching him.

        He’s an excellent actor.

        A damned pity they cancelled the series.

        Jonathan Rhys Meyers was also excellent as Henry VIII in the TV series The Tudors.

        Even though he isn’t obese like the real middle aged King Henry was at the time he was making out with Anne Boleyn, I think in terms of the way Jonathan Rhys Meyers captured Henry’s actual personality and character, he was probably the best Henry VIII I’ve ever seen portrayed on screen.

        Every brilliant Tv Series always gets cancelled and especially recently I just watched “The House of Cards” until … Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct. It felt somewhere set a trap on me and I started to admiring them, and BOOM!!! They are monsters from the deep. Damn it! I hate that.

        It was just like those rape/sexual cases that came about with Bill Cosby and I cannot watch my childhood tv series anymore. It had spoiled my whole 20 years of child’s life with it. Gosh … as if I just watched Lucifer in real life, but never knew it was him all along …

        And there are too many of those sexual criminals out there in the tv series and it had me puke! I can mentioned many, but the one that had had me was that TV series where we grew up watching as a teenager – “7th Heaven” with Stephen Collins who was a paedophile for years, molested kids all those times and ONLY his wife knew it and she did nothing …

        Like my whole childhood and teenage life got blown up on purpose by THAT!
        Ugh!
        Ugly, ugly evil people.
        Pan Goatee and Renfield should assassinate ’em all.
        Blah!

        I feel exactly the same way Sherry.

        I remember how crushed I was when I heard that Bill Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted women.

        I had watched the Cosby TV show as well.

        I remember when I was in High School, during noon hour and spare periods, I used to go across the street to the Public Library (which was across from my school) and listen to his Comedy routine records on headphones 🎧.

        I used to enjoy his comedy routines because they were funny and he didn’t use swear words like most other comedians of the time used to do.

        I couldn’t believe it when it turned out that he was a sexual predator and a monster.

        Like you, I felt my childhood had been taken away.

        Yes it’s extremely disturbing how many of the big television and film stars in Hollywood have turned out to be sexual predators, pedophiles and child molestors.

        You’re right.

        Pan Goatee and Renfield should just assassinate them all.
