Sadako Shado Tamashi

The archivist at the British Museum was looking through a bunch of early 20th Century Japanese photographs.

He came across a photo of a very beautiful young Japanese woman wearing a long white dress.

He stopped to look at her.

In fact, he looked at her for quite a while.

To his amazement, a heart ❤️ suddenly appeared in the photograph.

The word Yokubo appeared in the heart.

What the Hell? Archivist Moreau thought to himself.

What does Yokubo mean?

Moreau turned to the next photograph which was of a Japanese print of a Japanese Christ being crucified on the Cross.

That’s interesting, Moreau thought to himself, not too many of those pictures in Japan.

The next photo was of the same beautiful woman he had looked at a few photos earlier.

But now her long black hair was covering her entire face.

And blood (the colour red) actually appeared on her dress in the black and white photograph.

She was pointing a finger at someone (almost as if she was pointing at him from the photo).

Behind her was a word on the wall written in blood (again blood red showed up in the black and white photo).

The word was KAN’IN.

The next morning they found Moreau’s body dead in the photo archives of the British Museum.

His throat had been slashed from ear to ear as if he had just revealed Freemasonic secrets.

All the photos were gone.

Save for one black and white photo showing a woman in a long white dress with long black hair over her face standing over the body and pointing an accusatory finger at him.

The woman had very long sharp fingernails on her accusatory hand.

The nails were blood red (and red actually showed up in the B and W photo).

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      You have the mystery solved, eh, Ortensia. 😂

      • ortensia said,

        I saw the movie and for a while kept doing that to the traveling husband 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You crawled out of the TV set and shouted Boo? 😂

        He must have complained about all the TVs that needed to be replaced afterwards.

      • ortensia said,

        🤣🤣🤣🤣now you gave me an idea…….so far I just put my hair on my face😳

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Now you’re working on trying to fit yourself into the TV 📺. 😂😂😂

      • ortensia said,

        😂😂😂I need a big screen tv🤣

    Freakin’ spooky bro! Really good! (We’re in sync. I have new post up a few minutes before this one of yours. Mine involves a Japanese woman with blood as well…which, in itself, is creepy….)

    A very well written chiller!

  5. Hyperion said,

    A cautionary tale. Never stare at a Japanese girl with long black hair covering her face. She might get offended and put the slasharoni on you. Great scaryness and shudderness here.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks, Daniel. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        Me and George are planning to get together with you and all the vampiresses, Akira, and Alexandra for a Gothic Cirque de Soliel show. We got front row seats and free popcorn.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        That sounds like a wonderful idea, Daniel. 👌👍😀

        If the Akira, Alexandra and Vampiresses Cirque de Soleil Troupe appeared on America’s Got Talent, it would probably give judge Simon Cowell an erection from which he might never recover.

        It won’t be his hand that’s hitting the buzzer. 😂

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, I found Sadako to be the scariest character in any movie I’ve ever seen.

      Even scarier than Nightmare On Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger or Friday the 13th’s Jason the slasher goalie.

      Sorry if I keep you awake tonight.

      What brought back memories of Sadako is that there’s an Indonesian magician and illusionist who calls herself the Sacred Riana who appeared on the America’s Got Talent Show with Simon Cowell last week and she’s adopted the persona of Sadako for her magic act making hers the scariest magic acts I’ve ever seen. 😯

    Poor Moreau. Was it his own
    lustful desire that opened an
    aperture for the Empress,
    with much synthetic bodily fluid?

    Here’s a re-blog of a short story I wrote about a year and a half ago.
