Dorian Gray and The Lakota Sioux Princess Tanaka

The Lakota Sioux Princess Tanaka was walking through the Dashwood Forrest Art Gallery in London.

It was a private visit as the Dashwood Forrest Art Gallery still hadn’t been granted permission by the UK government to publicly open during lockdown.

As Dashwood Forrest hurried back to his office because his office phone was ringing, the Lakota Sioux Princess Tanaka continued to walk down the halls of the gallery.

She entered a room marked PRIVATE as Forrest told her to treat the gallery as if it were her own home.

She noticed nothing in the room except for a pair of purple velvet curtains.

She opened the curtains and behind them were two portrait oil paintings. 

One was a portrait of a young man.

And the other was a portrait of a teddy bear.

She recognized the young man in the portrait.

His name was Dorian Gray.

For the Lakota Sioux Princess Tanaka was an immortal.

In the summer of 1878, she had ridden a rare creature- a white buffalo- and as a result of that experience she became immortal.

That autumn, she had gone to London, England where she had lived ever since.

Also that autumn, she had met a dashing young man by the name of Dorian Gray.

After a whirlwind tour of sights and spots throughout England with Dorian, Tanaka thought that she was in love.

Dorian had invited her down to the seaside holiday spot of Brighton with him.

The Lakota Sioux Princess was sure that Dorian was going to ask her to marry him.

Dorian proposes marriage to the Lakota Sioux Princess Tanaka on the seashore at Brighton.

Tanaka said yes.

Later in Dorian’s hotel room, she went into his bedroom as he was out in the hall chatting to the bell boy.

She was shocked to discover a bunch of female human heads – all of them beautiful (for Dorian Gray did not have the exceptionally high IQ of a Pan Goatee) and perfectly preserved stored in jars of formaldehyde.

“Dorian!” She exclaimed when he walked back into the room, “What are these?”.

Dorian looked shocked and bit his lip, “Er… Um… You know how some people like collecting beautiful butterflies or beautiful seashells or beautiful autumn leaves or beautiful pressed flowers, I… um… like collecting heads of beautiful women.”

“But that’s sick!” Tanaka was shocked.

“But I’ve been invited to the Rothschild’s masked ball dinner party every year for the past 18 years!” Dorian protested, “How can you call someone who’s been invited to the Rothschild masked ball dinner party for that long sick?”.

Tanaka left slamming the door behind her.

“Does this mean the engagement is off?” Dorian called out from the balcony of his hotel room as she entered a horse carriage and the carriage drove away.

Dorian and Tanaka never saw one another again.

Later she heard the body of an unknown old man stabbed in the heart was found in Dorian Gray’s house in London.

Dorian himself was never seen again.

    An interesting read indeed.

  2. Kritika said,

    Scary a little. A collection of beautiful heads.
    Tanaka did the right thing.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, Tanaka definitely did the right thing.

      I occasionally write a horror chapter just to show that I can write like Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen King on occasion.

  3. Hyperion said,

    I think Princess Tanaka should have taken Dorian’s scalp and sewed it to his butt cheeks and called the press to expose Dorians hairy butt where it would be presumed he cultivated his wig. That would have been a real yellow journal thriller of a mystery.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      The yellow journal press of the day would have boldly gone where Donald Trump’s wig maker would go in the future.

      • Hyperion said,

        Who knows, maybe a butt comb over will become high fashion.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Even Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Occasional-Cortex will be trying it.

      • Hyperion said,

        Perhaps it would get quite confusing whether to comb the hair, mustache or buttocks first and does one use the same comb for all three? Hmmm. I see a new line of hair care products on the horizon.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Joe Biden’s undoubtedly transgendered running mate could serve as spokesperson on the TV ads.

      • Hyperion said,

        I’m sure that will be the magic bullet that crashes the voting booth gates and a million hanging chads won’t make a difference. Libertine lifestyles and hedonistic sex toys will adorn the Oval Office and department of justice walls creating a surge in the battery industry saving the country from the doom and gloom of a taxpayer’s life in the green minnow beer brewing sector.

      Thank you.

      A very informative post you have on the genocide committed against the Native American First Nations peoples.
