It had been two years since Carson Cody Albion had had the tantric sex encounter with Semiramis in New Orleans.

A lot had happened since then.

Semiramis tired of stalking the bayous of New Orleans as the Jaguar Woman of New Orleans had returned to her palace along the Euphrates River.

Carson Cody Albion had packed up his private eye business and moved to Los Angeles from New Orleans.

The Golden Age of Hollywood and the shenanigans of film studio executives and their wives and mistresses made for a more lucrative clientele.

One thing that still puzzled Albion about the Semiramis encounter was why the Jaguar Woman (and ex-Queen of Babylon) had suddenly clutched on to Thessalonike of Macedon (the immortal mermaid half-sister of Alexander the Great) and shouted “Mommy.”

He had found the answer while browsing through a Los Angeles rare bookshop.

He had looked up the name Semiramis in an old encyclopedia and discovered that she was the daughter of the Syrian mermaid goddess Atargatis.

No wonder why when Semiramis saw an actual real live mermaid, she mistook her for her own mother.

Albion left the bookshop.

He decided to head over to one of the Hollywood studio backlots looking for customers.

While walking through one of the backlots, he noticed an actress playing a gypsy woman taking a rest from filming.

As he walked by her, she whistled at him.

Albion turned around, smiled and doffed his hat to her.

He continued walking.

Little did he know that the whistling gypsy was in fact the mermaid Atargatis the mother of Semiramis.

    Dracul, I’ve just boarded a plane bound for India, with the Voodoo Gypsy Witch Queen
    of New Caledonia, to make further enquiries
    regarding this Tantric Yoga business
    When I say, bound, I mean she has me kind
    of tied up. For my own good apparently.
    Witch Queen insisted I leave Hong Kong
    immediately as the Chinese regularly
    mistake Australians for Canadians.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      That sounds like quite the trip, David.

      The sort of jet lag that leaves one feeling tied in knots.

      Yes, it’s rather sad that the movie Crocodile Dundee never made quite the impact in Hong Kong movie theatres as it did in Canada and the U.S.

      Otherwise they might have known there was a difference between Australian and Canadian accents.

  2. George F. said,

    A little synchronicity here…the whistling woman was in fact the mother of Semiramis…which once again demonstrates that there are no coincidences, and one must always pay attention!

  3. Dracul Van Helsing said,

    Yes, very true, my friend.

    Synchronicity can show up any time anywhere.
