Serena a time traveler (from the future) and the mortal fiancee of the wealthy ancient Egyptian vampire Set typing up an Ernest Hemingway manuscript for the Church Times

Serena would soon be marrying her love the wealthy Egyptian vampire Sol Invictus Set.

Tomorrow Set would be showing Serena the mansion he had bought the both of them.

In the meantime, Serena was typing up a manuscript for Ernest Hemingway (whom she had met in Paris earlier this year)- a freelance article that Hemingway was submitting to the Church Times newspaper in London.

Hemingway had recently met a member of the White Russian community in Harbin, China who had recently moved to Paris.

The White Russian emigre claimed to have met Charles Sydney Gibbes the Englishman who served as English language tutor to the children of Russia’s last Czar Nicholas II from 1908 to 1918 including accompanying the Imperial Family into exile at Tobolsk in Siberia.

In May 1918, Nicholas II had told Gibbes before the Imperial Family was moved on the Bolshevik regime’s orders to Ipatiev House in Yekatirinbug that he had personally come to believe in the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of Jesus to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal the year before and had prophecied correctly about evil diabolic errors arising in Russia that would spread throughout the world unless Russia was consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart by the Bishop of Rome acting in concert with all the bishops of the world.

“Would that include all the bishops of the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Churches together?” Serena wondered as she read Hemingway’s own hastily typed and much in need of correction of typos original manuscript.

Hemingway’s source did not say.

What was said was that Nicholas II had told Gibbes that both him and his family would be murdered by the Bolsheviks as revealed in a dream to him.

As such, Nicholas II had told Gibbes that he was writing a letter and he would be putting this letter in a small metal chest sealed shut and marked with the Romanov double headed phoenix insignia and Gibbes must return to England with the sealed chest and put it in the Oxford University archives with the instructions that it must be opened and read on the exact date of the 100th anniversary of their deaths by whoever was the heir to the Romanov Russian Imperial throne in the year 2018.

Hemingway had asked Serena in a note he wrote her to go to Oxford and check if the chest with the letter inside was ever deposited in the University archives.

“You look lovely, my dear,” Sol Invictus Set said as he gazed at his fiancee.

Serena looked back at him and crossed her legs as she sat at the typewriter.

Meanwhile in a dance hall not far away, the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet was performing.

Watching her perform was the Egyptian god Anubis the son of Set.

Anubis had betrayed the location of Set’s new mansion to Soviet assassin Leonid Terovsky who had been ordered by Josef Stalin to kill Set.

Terovsky would be on scene when Sol Invictus Set showed Serena the mansion tomorrow.

Anubis’ betrayal of his father Set was vengeance on Set for betraying his mother and Set’s first wife Nepthys.

Set totally oblivious to family betrayal by his offspring and the intrigue and machinations of the Soviet emerging Stalinist state.

Several years after these events, British MP Renfield R. Renfield had been invited to attend the opening of the Gibbes box in the Oxford University Archives by the Romanov heir to the Russian Imperial Throne on the evening of July 16th/17th 2018.

And the ghost of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin (granted dispensational leave from Tartarus by Hades the god of the Underworld) was now advising Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Meanwhile the fierce ghost rider Muerte Noir (who might just possibly be one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse) was riding his horse Equus Beelzebar out of his haunts in the American Wild West and heading straight towards a church in Sweden.

The girl who was playing Saint Lucy in the church candlelight procession in Saint Lucia’s Church in this small Swedish village on the night of Santa Lucia’s Day was unaware that she was going to come face to face with terror (in the form of a dark rider on a dark horse) after the service.

    Oops, better save Lucia! Serena looks familiar. I wonder if she is one of Hemingway’s wives? 🙂

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, Hemingway had 4 of them.

      The photo I used for Serena is a photo of Golden Age of Hollywood actress Tallulah Bankhead.

      That may be why she looks familiar to you if you’re a classic film buff like I am.

      • Christine Valentor said,

        Oh yes, I am a classic film buff! Tallulah is a huge talent! I had read a bit about Hemingway’s wives — she does look like she could be one of them, haha. Intriguing post indeed! 🙂

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, that’s probably why Hemingway approached her.☺

        He did seem to be attracted to a particular look in the women he chose.

    Edward Gee!
    But then Set would be no
    Robinson Crusoe when it
    comes to family intrigue.
    I guess what goes around
    comes around. I heard that
    Set, as a stauch anti Bolshevik,
    was a stool pigeon for the
    House Un-American Activities
    under the code name, ‘Dirty Rat’.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I believe that’s correct.

      You’d often see Set on Scarlet Street gazing at the woman in the window as he was busy putting putting on the Fritz for old times’ sake or as the Scots would say for auld Lang syne.

      • David Redpath said,

        Yes Chris, I miss the golden
        ‘times long past’. Before the
        best of Hollywood fled to
        Europe due to McCarthyism.
        But John Wayne & Ronald
        Reagan did just fine.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Particularly in the case of all’s welles that doesn’t end welles.

        While America was horsin’ around, Europe was Orson around.

      • David Redpath said,

        With a snort of Citizen Cocaine.
        And then a Martian Invasion of
        the French quarter … just 4 fun.
