The eerie howl pierced the still of the cold night. King Vikram did not turn his glance away from the hanging corpse. He stepped up on the peepal tree, bringing his face close to the skull. The Vampire watched him reach for the corpse with a mocking look. Vikram ignored it altogether and put the corpse on his shoulder. Now he began the lonely march to where his soldiers waited for him.
It was not long before the vampire broke the silence. “Oooh King, How hard you work! But why I wonder! Are you doing this because someone goaded you? Don’t your friends ever stop you from coming here every month? By the way, do you have trusted friends? Being a king can be lonely, I’m sure! It must not be easy to know whom to trust.
Let me tell you the story of two friends who had a falling out and got back together again. There may be a lesson there for you.” And the Vampire began to narrate his story.
Listen and enjoy!
