Count Lucrose realized
ne had slept too long as
le weakly pushed back the
lid of his rotting coffin*
He would have to satisfy
ais hunger with all pos
sible haste.
The almost forgotten
potion ha had drunk had
allowed him to pass an
;^ntire century in sleep,
->ut it had nearly caused
:iim his death by draining
him of energy.
He wondered what things
had changed during his
long sleep. Time would
soon tell,
Lucrose assumed his
all too familiar form. The
sonor hearing of his bat-
body informed him that a
'building was nearby and
he noiselessly flew to it
on leathery wings. He was
exhausted as he flapped
through an open window in
the dark mansion.
The Vampire re-assumed
ais human shape. His pale
as shone in the black-
nt ss as he discovered a
voung female form in bed
sir leep. His hundred-year
:u iger silently screamed
L'o be fed.
Feverishly he glided
M the girl's side. Fangs
j red, he bent to quinch
-h 3 unslaked, unholy
Ci irst.
At that moment a pale
bMm from the moon fell on
-1 3 sleeping figure’s
'hroat and something me-
allic glinted there.
Curious, Lucrose leaned
Torward, and read a word
'hich was followed by a
umber, A horrible dis-
dr gripped his brain and
'ody. He sank to the floor
ith a moan of dread and a
^emor of exhaustion.
With the coming of dawn
the diabolic transformat
ion, asleep for centuries,
expired with an ironic in
scription etched on his
brain. Too weak to seek
blood elsewhere, he real
ized too late this feminine
form could offer him none
of life’s rich red neces
sity. For the damning in
formation stamped on the
metallic tag of the
"sleeping" maidservant de
clared her to be a flesh-
covered automation,
What do you desire most to
