Yes, the Golden Circle superstate would come into existence, Robur Pike reflected.

And Havana, Cuba would be its capital.

But of course something would have to be done about Cuban President Raul Castro.

Fortunately Cuban Revolution senior statesman Fidel Castro had done the Knights of the Golden Circle a favour and kicked the bucket back in November.

But Cuban President Raul Castro was still alive and kicking.

And plotting to establish a Marxist New World Order that would receive the Apostolic Blessing of Pope Francis.

Robur Pike figured he’d better nip that in the bud right away.

He crushed a white rose and a red rose that he had bought from an elderly Cuban woman who was selling roses in the cafe.

Pike already knew how Raul Castro would be killed. And by whom.

. . .

Salaman the Magician was in Caracas, Venezuela.

In addition to being a successful stage magician, Salaman was also a successful hypnotist.

And he had been hired by a certain individual to hypnotize Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Which is what he was currently doing at the moment.

“Nicolas,” Salaman spoke softly, “listen to me. I am the ghost of Comrade Chavez.”

“You are the ghost of Comrade Chavez,” Maduro spoke in a zombie like voice.

You shall do exactly as I say,” Salaman directed.

“I shall do exactly as you say, Comrade Hugo,” Maduro continued his impersonation of American actor Chuck Norris at his dramatic speaking voice best.

. . .

Raul Castro got off the phone.

He looked at his aide Juan Ernesto Garcia.

“I just got the most peculiar phone call from President Maduro of Venezuela,” Castro pushed the Freeze button on the DVD of the movie The Manchurian Candidate that he had been watching.

“Really?” Juan gave his leader his undivided attention.

“Yes, he needs to see me right away for some reason,” Castro frowned, “he says he’s flying to Havana tonight in his private jet.”

Meanwhile at Havana Airport, another private jet was flying out of the country. Headed towards the Middle East. Robur Pike bid the lights of Havana good-bye from his window.

He then lay back in his plane’s hot tub, sipped on a martini and thanked Lucifer that he wasn’t a Syrian refugee.

Qonzilqointec In Post-Fidel Havana

Qonzilqointec In Post-Fidel Havana

The Aztec vampire princess Qonzilqointec walked the streets of Havana in the wake of the death of Fidel Castro- leader of the Cuban Revolution, Prime Minister of Cuba for 17 years and President of Cuba for 30.

He had landed in Cuba with 80 rebels in 1956, was only 32 when he toppled Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959 and he had survived 638 assassination attempts.

His decision to allow the Soviet Union to put nuclear missiles in Cuba in 1962 had brought the world to the brink of nuclear war in October of that year.

Khrushchev blinked and backed down and John F. Kennedy breathed a sigh of relief.

Castro had proclaimed his revolution a Marxist-Leninist one and as a result Cuba had suffered a U.S. led economic embargo that had lasted 56 years.

As a result of course, the great classic American cars of the 1950s and early 1960s still are seen on the streets of Havana.

Castro to his credit had built one of the best health care and education systems in the world.

Thousands of medical practitioners graduate in Cuba every year and Cuba sends them to more than 60 countries across the globe to provide aid and assistance.

The Cuban nation also enjoys a world class biotech industry that is saving millions of lives through dispensing vaccines and drugs to needy countries at a fraction of the cost that large multinationals would charge.

No doubt the money grubbing U.S. pharmaceutical giants were not sorry to see Castro go.

Cuban soldiers had defeated South African troops in Angola in 1988 at Cuito Canivale.

That defeat not only led to South Africa withdrawing from Namibia and Namibian independence but Nelson Mandela himself attributed South Africa’s defeat by Cuban troops to his release from jail and the ultimate defeat of apartheid.

Although Castro had officially proclaimed Cuba an atheistic state, he gave a hero’s welcome to Pope John Paul II when that pontiff visited in 1998, he met with Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 and asked him whatever became of the Latin Tridentine Mass during their talks, and later had a 30-minute meeting with Pope Francis in September of 2015.

And now, thought Qonzilqointec, who would continue Castro’s Revolution now that he was gone?

She walked the streets of Havana in her lavender coloured evening dress and looked up at the stars and pondered the question.
