Letters Column: Tomes to the Tomb!

A vampire named Marianne has come to Dracula asking for him to kill her once and for all. She explains her life story to both Dracula and his wife Domini how she has crossed paths with Dracula many times: The first time was in 1875, when she was only four years old, she was the daughter of Captain Cutlass a pirate that would attempt to rob a French ship. He would have the unfortunate luck of robbing the very one that Dracula was using as a transport ship, and her father would be turned into a vampire by Dracula for his troubles. The next time she would meet Dracula would be in 1903, having moved to Vienna, Italy, she would keep her father bound and steal blood for him so that he may continue living his unlife. After stealing some blood she would just happen to be Dracula's random victim of the night. However, before Dracula could feed upon her, she would drop the bottles of stolen blood, causing them to smash on the ground. This would upset Dracula, and delay his feeding enough for Cutlass to break free. Cutlass would be killed fighting Dracula, who would lose his desire for killing and leave the girl alone to mourn the death of her father. Her next encounter with Dracula would happen in Rome in 1926, Marianne would be married to Count Marcos De La Triana. De La Triana would earn Dracula's ire when he would refuse to help ship coffins to America making him a target for Dracula's revenge. He would attack De La Triana when he is out on a drive with his new bride. Recognizing Marianne, he would spite her by killing her husband. Marcos would return three days later as a vampire to turn her into one as well. They would live happily for years living off stolen blood until Marcos was killed by Blade the vampire hunter days previous. With nothing left to live for, Marianne asks Dracula to put her to rest. Dracula agrees to do so for her, gladly accepting the stake she has prepared to commit the deed.
