The captain of the guard described his encounter with the stranger. ...and they were unloading these fancy long wood crates. He spoke to me in a most commanding hypnotic fashion. ...including heavy "coffin-like" crates.

Sir Zero explains even as they make a discovery! "Yes, it's part of the whole panache of it all." Four coffin-like crates by the wall!

There is a noise from the door at the top of the stairs! "Someone's coming! Quick! Let's hide behind the crates!" Even as the hide, the stairs creak!

I thought I would do something special for Halloween. The result was “Vlad!” I’m breaking it up and posting in small instalments. The plan is that it wraps up by the night of the 31st — at least in the Pacific Daylight Time-zone.

Look for part 4, tomorrow!

I hope you enjoy this and share it around!

Thanks!
