Water poured down King Vikram’s face, blurring his sight. He felt his way around the peepal tree, trying to remember how far he had to climb to reach the hanging corpse. Then, a flash of lightning lit up the sky, and he saw the toothy grin of the corpse welcoming him. Over his shoulder went the corpse with the Vampire, and Vikram began to march through the slush. It seemed like the Vampire got used to this ride.
As the rain abated, the Vampire began to speak to King Vikram. “Adventure, and the need to keep your word seems to be your nature, King Vikrama! Now, do you believe that one can change their nature at all? Some people believe that it is impossible to change one’s nature, and that you are stuck with being who you are. Others believe that you can change your nature. Listen to my story and tell me what you think.”
Listen and Enjoy!
