Unseen written story Essay
The black night which falls over Transylvania conceals many dark mysteries. On the mountain top a legend was born, some say it is a myth but many have fallen beneath it, it is called Count Dracula, a blood sucking animal, but looks no different from you or me.Our story begins in Mexico where a young valiant man named Van Helsing kills vampires for a living. Vampires, they say, are a weaker form of Dracula but still kill the innocent to suck their blood.Van Helsing has set out to vanquish all the blood sucking creatures. Back in Mexico where Van Helsing is on a hunt; jumping and leaping through the town lit by night, chasing a vampire. Van Helsing shot three darts from his crossbow; two hit the creature, dripping blood everywhere. Suddenly, the creature turns snatches the crossbow, rapidly Van Helsing uses hand to hand combat. This bloody battle is getting dangerously close to the end then stab… Van Helsing stood up with his dagger penetrating the vampire’s heart. The vampire slowly died as the blood drained out of its veins.”That’s one less vampire off the face of the earth” announced Van Helsing, to his right hand man Gimbulton. Gimbulton replied “Maybe we should head back”.As they returned to their hideout, they realized they had come back to a war zone, all their priceless inventions scattered everywhere like broken body parts.”Look a note!” said Gimbulton nervously.The note read “Its time to face your fear, you possess something of great value which you will bring back to my possession and just in-case you try to destroy it I have something of yours, a young beautiful woman who you know very dearly”The look on Van Helsing was very uneasy and anxious,”We must go!” exclaimed Van Helsing”But were?” Gimbulton replied,Van Helsing held up the back of the letter where an address was written.Gimbulton managed to find weapons and items that survived the carnage, so they set off for the first boat to Transylvania. On the journey Van Helsing pulled out half of a map, “What is that?” questioned Gimbulton,”It is the one half of a map which leads to the other half of the map, we will find the other half in south of Africa were it’s hidden by an old friend.”That night in their cabin the boat came to an abrupt halt. Van Helsing grabs his Smith ; Weston Pistol Revolver customized to hold twenty silver titanium bullets, he woke Gimbulton and checked out the drama outside.”Everyone stay away from port side.”Suddenly a huge gigantic colony of sharks attacked the boat, the sharks eyes were blood red, they each torpedoed into the side of the boat; Van Helsing jumped to the lower deck and shot a barrage of bullets at the sharks, two of the sharks were pierced but it did not seem to slow the sharks, instead it made them more violent and bad tempered. Gimbulton pulled three circular objects out of his bag and threw them in the water near the blood thirsty sharks,”Van Helsing shot the sticky bangs!” Shouted Gimbulton, Van Helsing, with pin point accuracy, fired at the sticky bangs. The noise of piercing rockets filled the air. The sound was so deafening, the surface of the water vibrated and caused a 30 ft. high tidal wave. Suddenly the sharks darted off and the water settled. The boat took some damage but it was able to last the night.”Well that was unexpected!” Yawned Gimbulton as they both returned to their cabins.’Thump’ the boat struck land, they were in Africa, as they were leaving the boat the captain ordered “Be careful of these shores.”, Gimbulton looked at Van Helsing in a curious way and enquired “What does he mean by that?” Van Helsing shook his shoulders and walked on.Africa was a cold bleak place; everything that was there seemed to have died a long time ago. As Van Helsing and Gimbulton wondered through the early morning fog, they started to hear laughter and music. As they got closer they could see a little town full of brothels and guns. As they walked into a bar Gimbulton had the urge to leave but Van Helsing had none of it. Van Helsing approached the bar when suddenly a broad muscular man stopped him; the broad man grunted “This is my town and I HATE outsiders!!!”Van Helsing replied “I don’t want any trouble; I just need to retrieve an item.”The broad man responded, “And what is that?””You’ll find out!” Van Helsing replied, and tackled the man to the ground. Suddenly there was a big brawl; glasses smashing; woman screaming; people where launched through windows which shattered everywhere; Gimbulton crawled to the second floor whilst chaos was going on around him. Van Helsing was fighting 10 drunken people throwing two over the bar; he grabbed a chair and smashed it over a drunken man’s head. Suddenly a man walked in with a gun aimed to the ceiling and shot three rounds of his gun; everyone stood to a halt. The man wielding the gun was the town’s sheriff. He shouted, “Who was the cause of this drunken riot!!!” then two men lifted a dizzy and bruised Van Helsing from the floor; “Bring him here!” ordered the sheriff. The sheriff knelt down on one knee and lifted the nearly unconscious head of Van Helsing and whispered, “Who are you to come to my town and destroy my local brothel……Aye!!!”Van Helsing pointed at the broad muscular man who lay on the bar half dead, “I thought he owned this town?” The sheriff replied “So we got a joker!” They carried him off to the Sheriffs department, kicking and screaming.In the bitter chilling prison cell Van Helsing laid unconscious with rotting dead corpses; with rats scurrying around the floor nibbling on the corpses. Suddenly a voice came from the shadows gently whispering, “Van Helsing…..Van Helsing”, it was Gimbulton; Gimbulton picked up a little pebble and softly threw it at Van Helsing to wake him up, it took a few throws but eventually Van Helsing woke up.”Where am I?” asked Van Helsing.”Your in a prison cell, but I’m here too break you out,” said Gimbulton. Gimbulton got a tool kit out his bag and worked away at the bars; it took a matter of minutes before he managed to free him. Van Helsing crawled through the little gap in the bars and walked into the night looking for accommodation for the night. Finally they found somewhere to stay for the night, and in their room they were discussing how to get out of town to a village named Kimberly in the South of Africa. Gimbulton asked, “But how are we going to cross the border?””Like we always do!” Van Helsing said with a huge grin on his face; “But you need your rest because we have a big day tomorrow and we need to find some horses.” They both blew out their candles and got some rest.As the early morning dawn broke, Van Helsing was up and ready and was cleaning the components of his guns, and checking ammo.”Get up and get ready,” said Van Helsing, “I’m going down to find some horses.” Gimbulton nodded his head in agreement. As Gimbulton was getting ready he heard shots fired from downstairs he quickly grabbed his crossbow and ran down.When he came down he saw the receptionist kneeling down crying and when he looked up he saw three huge muscular men dead, “Come here Gimbulton!” Van Helsing shouted from outside were he was looking at one of the men’s back which had a message carved into his flesh. The message scripted “Tick tock, tick tock, don’t waste my time slayer or ill be having an early supper”Van Helsing looked up at Gimbulton in despair, “We have to get that other half of the map!!!”Gimbulton nodded his head, “I’ll gather the horses and equipment, and we will kill that evil vindictive beast!” Gimbulton said heroically. As Gimbulton said this a man came out of the hotel, “You won’t be able to do it alone, and I have nothing to live for, there savage men killed all my sons and wife and my daughter needs to get to safety, please can I join your voyage?”Van Helsing looked at the man, “We work alone”, “But we could use an extra hand,” replied Gimbulton,”Plus I have cousins in Kimberly” the man sincerely added,”Ok, what is your name” Van Helsing questioned, “|My name is Diego Sanchez, but I usually get call ‘D’, it is a nickname.” Diego said gratefully. And Diego gathered his things and the set off to the African border were they would meet up with Diego’s cousins.On the journey they had to stop to make camp over night, they each took shifts while the other two people slept. Van Helsing was first, so he grabbed a torch and his guns and watched out; whilst he was doing this Diego joined Van Helsing.”Is it true vampires exist?” questioned Diego,”Unfortunately, yes” answered Van Helsing,”You need your sleep, go to bed” said Van Helsing. Diego went to his make-shift bed to rest. It was coming to the end of Van Helsing shift, until he felt a chilling wind travel up his spine; he could also smell a repulsive stench of dead people. Suddenly he heard a groan from a woman, he sprinted to the direction of were the voice had came from; as he neared the scream he could see it was coming from behind a dead rose bush, he peered his head round the corner to see, a woman with blood stains round her mouth smiling up at him. He realized he had fallen into some kind of trap, he quickly turned his head to see five strange looking woman walking nearer, each creature was disgusting and had a violent look of suffering and death,”You got me,” said Van Helsing and he put his hands up, but without hesitating he whipped out his guns and bullets repeatedly pounded the flesh of each vampire. Fortunately Diego heard all the commotion and grabbed a his rifle, he fired three bullets into the back of the vampires’ head,”We need one of them alive”, shouted Van Helsing, Diego nodded his head; by now there were only two vampires remaining, Van Helsing managed to shoot one of the vampires ankles so much she was unable to walk, and then surprisingly Gimbulton shot a barrage of his darts from his crossbow at the last vampire. Each dead vampire slowly burned into thin air, but Van Helsing knew that Count Dracula saw everything his minion vampires could see.”Get some rest and we will leave at sunrise, they won’t attack again!” insisted Van Helsing to Gimbulton and Diego.As morning came and the world was waking up Van Helsing, Gimbulton and Diego set off heading towards the village were Dracula lay. They approached a grim looking town,”This is the place,” assumed Van Helsing, “Be wary and alert”. They slowly trotted through the village which seemed to be dead,”We need to find somewhere safe before nightfall,” insisted Gimbulton, so they got off their horses and knocked on a nearby resident’s door. The door slowly crept open, “What do you want!” came a voice from behind the door.”We need your help?” asked Van Helsing,”There’s nothing I can do” said the voice and then tried to slam the door. Van Helsing put his foot in the way to stop it.”What are you doing grandpa, let them in” said a much softer voice. She came to the door and let them in, the woman was a young beautiful woman, with a glint in her eye, “You may stay the night said the woman.”And what is your name?” questioned Van Helsing.”Kelly Maroni, you may call me Kelly,”Van Helsing, Gimbulton and Diego walked in and sat at the table, “You’re lucky you weren’t out there at night” said Kelly, “There are many things lurking about at night, and I guess you need your rest. You can stay in the room with the blue door.Later that night Van Helsing had a bad feeling but didn’t listen to his gut feeling because he was thinking of his sister, but as he drifted off he remembered Kelly mixing something with the drinks they had, as he tried to say something it was to late Diego and Gimbulton were in a deep sleep.As Van Helsing eye lids began to open, quickly he realized he could not move his arms or legs; he looked up and saw Gimbulton and Diego tied up and gagged. A while later they all woke and started to smell a horrible stench of death, suddenly a door slammed open and the young woman they were deceived by, Kelly, came to their cell and pulled them to her master. “For a girl she is mighty strong” proposed Gimbulton.”She is no girl,” replied Van Helsing, “She is what we hate, a vampire!” Exclaimed Van Helsing. As they neared the top of the stairs, they heard a woman screaming. Van Helsing eyes shot open. “If you hurt a hair on her head” said Van Helsing anxiously. They were pulled through a room full of coffins and then neared a candle lit room. “What is that?” asked Gimbulton as he saw a shadow on the wall of a huge beast like creature,”You’ll see soon enough” said Kelly. They approached the room not ready for what they were going to see, at the last minute Diego said “I am glad I came and don’t regret anything.””Bring them in!” ordered the beast. They peered round the corner to see a man no different from you or me to transform into a hideous, revolting beast, it had huge fangs, and evil sinister eyes.”I am Dracula, and I believe you posses the other half of my map!,” “Do you have my sister” Van Helsing responded,”Of course” said Dracula, then he pulled a curtain to reveal Van Helsings sister in a cage hanging from the roof top like a caged bird,”Were the map?” Dracula said angrily,”In my coat pocket” Van Helsing replied. Dracula nodded at Kelly, as she approached Van Helsing Diego managed to wriggle free and grab a wooden spike from a table and pierced Kelly’s heart. She roared a mighty scream and slowly dissolved into ashes and blew out the window with the wind.”You shall pay for such treachery!” Dracula shouted as he swooped over to Diego. Diego dived out the way and managed to shuffle along the floor to give Van Helsing a blade to cut them free, but he quickly had to dodge two more attacks. As Gimbulton was freeing himself Dracula threw three knives at him. Diego somersaulted through the air and the three knives punctured his torso slowly killing him. “NOOOO!!!” shouted Gimbulton as he ran over to Diego’s body. With his last few breaths he groaned, “I died for a good cause, defeat Dracula and look after my daughter!”Slowly he passed away. Whilst this took place Van Helsing was having a huge fight with Dracula, “Save my sister, and get her out of here!” yelled Van Helsing. Gimbulton got to work and freed her. ‘Boooom’ a giant fire began as Dracula threw Van Helsing through some chemicals. “GO, GO!!!” Van Helsing cried, Gimbulton and Van Helsing’s sister were on there way out. They ran down the path of the mountain until a huge explosion took place behind them. The castle blew up from the fire and gun powder, debris lay everywhere. “Oh, no” cried Van Helsing’s sister, “Nothing could of survived that horrific explosion.””He will pull through, stay here I will go and check for him” said Gimbulton. Underneath some burning tables Gimbulton heard something coughing violently, Gimbulton gently over turned the table to see Van Helsing battered and bruised, “I don’t die that easily!” grunted Van Helsing.
