Taking A Photo of A Vampiress

Genetically modified super soldiers were in London England awaiting their deployment to the Persian Gulf and the Middle East.

The super soldiers had been created by DARPA scientist Dr. Faustus Imhotep.

Among the many things they had been injected with was a youth serum to keep them young.

This mission to the Middle East was to be their first.

A chance for Imhotep to test their ability.

The DARPA doctor had booked the soldiers into a swanky London hotel.

Faustus Imhotep was sure the super soldiers would enjoy a little R and R before heading out on their mission.

And to stay in one of the best London hotels- surely nothing could possibly go wrong.

. . .

Selznick Foret was an aspiring photographer looking for his big break.

He sent an email to Vanity Fair magazine showing some of his work.

One of the editors answered saying that he was impressed with the photos and that if Foret sent them photos of a very unique and interesting subject, they might publish his photos.

Where, Foret wondered, would he find an interesting subject?

. . .

It just so happened that Foret ran into British MP Renfield R. Renfield now a member of the new British cabinet.

Foret had taken the photo for Renfield’s official parliamentary portrait and the MP loved his work.

Foret told Renfield his predicament.

It just so happened that the Canadian vampire hunter Dracul Van Helsing was with Renfield at the time.

Van Helsing told Foret that his girlfriend the Aztec vampire princess Qonzilqointec was on her way to London.

She would probably agree to pose for a bunch of photos.

Foret was ecstatic.

And so was the editor at Vanity Fair.

Photographs of a vampiress would definitely sell a lot of copies of the magazine.

. . .

Qonzilqointec agreed to pose for the photos.

She would pose for them in her hotel room in a swanky London hotel.

When she arrived at the London hotel, she was looking very tired and haggard after a long flight.

The Aztec vampiress apologized for her appearance.

“Once I’ve drank blood, I should look really young again,” she smiled at him bearing her lovely teeth.

Selznick Foret suddenly felt troubled.

Would he have to make the ultimate sacrifice for getting the perfect picture?

Would he have to offer his neck and his blood to her in order to get her looking young and fresh for the photo session?

“It’s all right,” the vampiress smiled again as if she could read his thoughts, “I’ve got a suitcase of synthetic blood in my room. When I drink that, I should be fine.”

Selznick Foret went back to his own room to get his camera equipment while Qonzilqointec partook of her life giving refreshment.

The vampiress went to her room and when she checked her suitcases, she was horrified to discover that the hotel had misplaced her suitcase containing bottles of synthetic blood.

The blood had been delivered to the room of an American Internal Revenue Service auditor staying at the hotel along with a suitcase full of stones (that should have been sent to the room of a geologist staying at the hotel).

Qonzilqointec realized she’d have to break her promise to Dracul Van Helsing and drink real human blood in order to survive the night.

The vampiress walked around the hotel wondering who she should attack.

Meanwhile the genetically modified super soldiers were in their hotel room having a wild party.

The Aztec vampiress opened the unlocked door of the hotel room.

She recognized the men as genetically modified super soldiers from photos in a tweet that Donald Trump had published on his Twitter account in which he had boasted about American military superiority and intelligence.

Being Mexican, Qonzilqointec was not a big fan of Donald Trump to say the least.

And as it turned out, despite DARPA’s best efforts, the genetically modified super soldiers were no match for a good old fashioned vampiress.

After drinking all the blood of the genetically modified super soldiers, Qonzilqointec looked very young indeed.

    Très bonne journée.

    Super soldiers met their match and the vampires is invited to my house…while satiated, of course.

  3. ESP said,

    Between genetically modified soldiers blood and synthetic blood, one would assume synthetic comes in different flavors, and also there would be completion between manufacturing companies which usually leads to better products.

    Sometimes when I’m reading the newspaper, stories arise that I feel are closer to Dracul’s reality than to the world I think I live in.

    Here’s one from today’s New York Times.


    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks for the link, Annie.

      Yes, I was watching a news clip on YouTube today where they briefly mentioned that Jeffrey Epstein was hoping to seed the DNA of humanity by impregnating 20 different women at a time on his New Mexico ranch.

      Thanks for the link.

      The New York Times article really went in-depth on this subject.

      Epstein certainly managed to put together a leading group of scientists – Murray Gell-Mann, Stephen Hawking, Stephen Jay Gould, Frank Wilczek and others to attend his conferences.

      And Epstein’s fascination with Transhumanism.

      I first came across the term Transhumanism in 2001- back when most people had never heard of it.

      I remember thinking at the time, this philosophy is going to be huge someday so I started studying and researching it on my own.

      In 2004, when I started writing my series of vampire novels, I wrote a lot about it.

      Some of my dad’s friends at the time asked him, “Christopher seems to spend a lot of time researching Transhumanism. Don’t you think that’s a waste of time?”.

      And my dad replied, “I’m sure Christopher has his reasons for it.”

      • annieasksyou said,

        You’re a visionary—I knew that, and it looks like your dad did too.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thank you, Annie.

        Yes, it looks like he knew that. ❤

    So can I buy some of this “youth” serum? I’ve drank blood and have eaten flesh.

    All things can work together …
    to provide a wholesome meal for a
    veracious voluptuous bloodsuckers! 😎

    That reminds me …
    I pan for gold as a hobby.
    Sometimes I only get eggs 🍳
    But that doesn’t bother me 😎

  8. Wm. Allen said,

    I can’t picture anyone being a match for a good old fashioned vampiress.

  9. Robert Smith said,

    she is very pretty. I love the shot
