|Vampire is not a complete change from the usual romantic characters, but it is somehow a different route to love. And the inspiration to this fantasy is the resplendent and enticing 'SURBHI CHAHAR'. I love you Surbhi...|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story “We will reunite Von ...,” and as the sun rises, she falls with me, ash to ash into the dust, leaving behind the only manifest of our co-existence: the metal ring which drowns into the ashes. Part II- Romania “Is she really that beautiful? I have also heard of the pleasant fragrances which environ her. Come on, delineate her for me.” “Her true beauty in not in her face; it is a light in her heart. Her beauty is a total creation. Every touch of her superb soul is a connoisseur's delight offering a rare and exquisite taste with a distinctive flavor. Blended to perfection, her body is born of quality malts produced by the touch of choicest fragrances for unmatched smoothness. Her beauty is a little surprised and it is this emotion that best suits her face filled with grace and good rhythm and simplicity.” “Is she... I now have to see to believe. Where will I find her?” “You will have to travel far south for 3 days. She lives in the village at the foothills of the great White Mountains. But the journey is too dangerous to make alone. Shall I come along Victor?” “I will go the distance and no, you stay here and take care of my mother.” I start off, “Hey, what's her name?” “Suri.” It was not a simple journey I had undertaken. Cruel winter had chilled the bud. In this whole vast dome of living nature, there reigned an open violence, a kind of prescriptive fury which armed all the creatures to their common goal: as soon as you find an alien in this inanimate kingdom you kill to feed, to survive. I could feel the fear settling on my skin. I kept telling myself that I can brave every obstacle, I can go the distance and the more I recalled Suri, a voice kept saying that with her I am meant to be. I kept riding for three days and finally when the fourth morning sun rose I could hear the merry chirping of birds, laughing of the river and glistening green grass told me I was very near the moment of merging with the fragrance. Through the wandering road I kept moving and then my senses turned to a humming sound. I got off my horse, took it by the reins and moved slowly towards the music. And there underneath a cascade I viewed the beauty so perfectly conjugated by the good lord. I was completely captured and not even for a second my eyes blinked and like a hypnotized person I started walking towards her. I could feel each and every thing told about her. It was true. She sensed my arrival and turned to me, “Who are you young man?” “I am Victor. I come from the land of the Seven Cascades. Suri I...” “And how do you know my name?” “Every mortal who knows of beauty and fragrance knows of you Suri.” Her laughter echoes throughout the forest and the pleasantness once again touches me deep. “Suri I have traveled far to see you and now I feel compelled to ask you to marry me.” “Victor, no doubt you are brave and a fine looking young man, but I have a wish. I have heard of a pure metallic ring which is guarded by wild and untamable creatures in a cave dwelling in the great White Mountains. The ring is a true symbol of love and my heart yearns for it. If you could get it for me I swear my soul will forever serve you to the fullest and love you to the core.” “Suri I promise to get what you desire and it may take a lifetime but somehow I'll see it through. And I won't look back, and I'll stay on track. No I won't accept defeat even though it's an uphill slope. I will not lose hope till I go the distance and my journey is complete.” “But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part, for a hero's strength is measured by his heart. I'll wait for you Victor.” It's after two days, close to midnight when I finally arrive at the terminus. Everything is unnatural like an evil lurking in the dark. Under the moonlight the sights almost stop my heart; feels as if horror is looking me right in the eyes. And I don't even know where from the beasts will strike. As I walk past the entrance to embrace my fate, I hear the door slam. I keep moving but all the while I hear the creatures creeping up behind. I know time is of the essence and I hasten because I know I don't stand a chance against forty eyes. Night creatures' call but I keep going and all along the shadows follow. I know I've walked into an ambush but now there's no turning back. I pull out my sword and the attack begins. The demons close in on every side with there jaws wide open. I fight with all my skill and speed and the cave is full of howls and screams as my blade moves in every direction; slicing, dicing and chopping off whatever comes in the way. The foulest stench is in the air and though I fight to stay alive my body starts to shiver. The smell of blood had started churning out an animal in me. I could feel a new strength within me. Fighting and slaying I start moving ahead. The creatures keep tailing but the numbers start running out and as the sounds diminish I know I am close to victory and finally I slash out my blade for one last time. As I move on I feel the pleasant sensation of cool wind on my skin. I realize I am near my goal and also that the cave has another exit. Suddenly a clap of thunder breaks the silence and a voice bursts out, “Young man, the ring which you wish to acquire is cursed and you must know the truth before you take it. You are not Victor, but Von reincarnated and Suri is Sugar. You were to be together in the 15th century and now in the 17th century also your fate is yet to be carved. This ring you had presented to Sugar then was the cause of your death and now the presence of an inmate you feel within is due to the vampire you were. This strength and reflexes are of Von and not yours and the ring which you will give to Suri will also take her to her original self of Sugar. Beware of the consequences as there are certain limitations to a vampire's body.” The voice fades away with a maniacal laugh. “It's been two days since he left Suri. Maybe he...” “No. I know he's alive Twinkle and he'll come back. My heart can never fail me. I will wait for him for all eternity.” As Suri sits waiting for me, my thoughts keep coming; it's just that I am yet to arrive. Her eyes keep searching for me and her heart is full of hope. It's just that her ears are not ready to listen to any distressing news. A loneliness creeps all around as the wind plays with the lantern spark. She waits with tired eyes perched at the window when suddenly she hears wild knocks on her door. It's Twinkle. “Suri he's back. He comes riding and calling your name.” Suri's heart rose and she ran outside to her gate. She could hear me calling her name and coming towards her. She waved at me with all enthusiasm. As I came closer she could see the change in my physical features. “What has happened Victor?” “Suri I'm sorry I return in this form my darling. But I never gave up.” “Oh Victor...” I take out her present and push it up her finger. Suri's fragrance and beauty started fading gradually and the smell of blood is all around. It is all true. The ring is cursed. “This smell, I sense, is so closely related.” “It was on this that we used to feed Sugar.” The morning sun starts to rise; she falls with me, ash to ash into the dust, leaving behind the only manifest of our co-existence: the metal ring which drowns into the ashes but we know we will reunite again to continue the journey.
