The settings were all complete for the Great Bloody Day of the Vampires. All arrangements were already done by the Vampire Bat, the Vampire Owl and the vampire apprentices. Vampire Crocodile was in charge of saying the welcome speech and the Vampire Cat with the vote of thanks. There was an unlimited supply of noodles and blood shake arranged by the Vampire Kung-fu Panda Catering service. The Vampire Cat was busy making sure everything was at the right places.
“Surprise! I am here early” screamed Dracula.
“Who are you? What do you want? What business do you have here?” asked the Vampire Owl.
Dracula was in doubt. It was the first time he seemed unknown in the vampire community. No other vampire had ever asked him that question; not even Louis de Pointe du Lac or Lestat de Lioncourt. A lot of them knew him from even a kilometre away; such was the impact created by him.
“I am your uncle, the great, legendary Dracula” said Dracula.
“No, you are not Dracula. You are just a caveman in a Halloween costume” said the Vampire Crocodile.
“No, I am your most awesome Uncle Dracula. See my fangs?” Dracula said as he showed his teeth.
“No, our uncle is a bloody old man with the looks of a handsome young man. You look like you were wandering in the Carpathians and has now come here to take a free shower” said the Vampire Owl.
“I am Dracula, because my name is Dracula”.
“Yes, you might be a Dracula, but not the Dracula. You were named after our great uncle and teacher?” asked the Vampire Cat.
“What is wrong with you people? This is just the first time that I haven’t shaved”.
“No, Dracula never had the facial hair. Human turned Vampires never have that. You are a fake” remarked Vampire Owl.
“I never had the facial hair because I always shaved, you idiots” yelled an angry Dracula.
“We are not accepting that. We don’t see the vampire gentleman in there. It is too risky to let another person into this secret celebrations” said the Vampire Bat.
“See, this is my visiting card; it says Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, Member of the House of Drăculești, Full time Vampire and part time Count, The Vampire Castle”.
“Anyone can make such a card. Do you have an id?” asked the Vampire Bat.
“What id? I don’t need an id. I am the greatest vampire of all time. Why do I need an id?” asked an aggressive Dracula.
“We need to approve you if you are to enter here. So, go and get your id”.
“But it will take me hours to go back there and by then it will be too late. Do you have a razor?” asked a worried Dracula.
“No, we don’t keep razors here, because we don’t need that. Now, please leave as we wait for our one true uncle with absolutely no hair on his face” said the Vampire Owl.
“Yes, you shall not have any of my noodles with the special ingredient unless you prove that you are the one” yelled the Vampire Kung-fu Panda from a distance.
“What kind of idiots have I trained? I should have trained a coconut tree and it would have done better than these guys” murmured Dracula as he returned to the castle.
*Moral of the story from Count Dracula: Always shave or lose a significant moment or two.
