The Vampire of The Speakeasy

The vampire of the speakeasy strikes again

It was the 1920s.

Prohibition was in full force in the USA.

And the speakeasy was doing a booming business in cities and towns all over.

Vampire hunter Joseph Van Helsing was sitting in one such speakeasy.

It had come to his attention that in this particular speakeasy there was someone who was drinking more than just alcohol.

As people were coming home from the speakeasy and dying on their doorsteps because their bodies were completely drained of blood.

And the city had seen no recent call from the American Red Cross for blood donations.

So there was something suspicious going on.

Joseph Van Helsing suspected a vampire.

Even though a thoroughly modern modernist Catholic priest in the city had said there were no such things as vampires.

For that matter the thoroughly modern modernist Catholic priest also said there was no God or Devil, Heaven or Hell or angels and demons.

This thoroughly modern modernist Catholic priest later got a job teaching theology at a Jesuit seminary in Argentina for the next 50 years.

But Joseph Van Helsing paid no attention.

He sat drinking a glass of smooth whiskey.

And cast his eyes around the room.

When he saw this:

That appeared to be more than a hickey the man was giving the beautiful brunette woman in the white dress.

“Iago, my violin case,” Joseph Van Helsing called his assistant.

Iago appeared with a violin case.

“What have you got there? A sub-machine gun?” Asked an IRS agent who was looking around for signs of undeclared taxes in the speakeasy.

“No, this,” Van Helsing opened the violin case and pulled out a hawthorn wooden stake.

He rushed up to the man giving the beautiful brunette woman in the white dress a hickey and drove it through his heart.

The man immediately turned into a skeleton and crumbled into dust.

“Whew,” Joseph Van Helsing spoke with relief, “It’s a good thing he did that. Otherwise I might be facing 2nd degree murder or manslaughter charges about now.”

The beautiful brunette woman threw herself into Joseph Van Helsing’s arms and started kissing him passionately.

Joseph Van Helsing went home that night with one heck of a hickey.
