In the Chambers of the Elder Vampires, Vampire Bat and Vampire Owl has a discussion. It wasn’t about the wars this time, but it was not a case of peace either. The chambers were listening to a different conversation. It was about the effects of the love at first sight which Vampire Owl had felt for Lady Death.
Vampire Bat: Are you sure you want to do this? Do you think that this is the right decision at this point?
Vampire Owl: Yes, I would do this for Lady Death as you would do that for her evil twin sister.
Vampire Bat: I haven’t really decided about myself. I am sure that I won’t be asked about such strange conditions in love.
Vampire Owl: You don’t understand. This is love at first sight. There is nothing ordinary about it, and instead here we have it as a thing of highest quality.
Vampire Bat: What do you mean by that? Where did you actually see her? You haven’t met Death yet.
Vampire Owl: It is kind of correct in your simple and lifeless terms, considering the fact that you are a layman in love. I am of the standard of a bishop if love is considered a religion.
Vampire Bat: It is indeed a relief that you didn’t say Pope, Lama or Patriarch. Love is not a religion even though people say that their religion is love or God is love; your love with Lady Death is surely not that. You can ask Uncle Dracula for confirmation.
Vampire Owl: This is why you should read books about love from the Imperial Vampire Library. It is about sensing her presence and making an impression. Sight is just a word which translates into sense in after-life.
Vampire Bat: You mean to say that your dearest Lady Death is blind and can only sense your presence.
Vampire Owl: Silly layman. You should be ordained into the guild of love, or you will never find Lady Death’s evil twin sister. This is why you don’t even know her name yet.
Vampire Bat: Actually, none of these is the problem. Your mission is injurious to your health. I can give you a clear warning on that. I can even get certification about the same from our analysts.
Vampire Owl: I am very good at missions. I have accomplished so much in my career with one mission after another.
Vampire Bat: Yes, but not related to returning with an eye of a cyclops. You will be going through hostile territory. To add to that, there are two problems related to the same. One is that you don’t know if the creature exists. The second is that if they do, a cyclops got only one eye and if you take it you are going to make it very angry.
Vampire Owl: There is this area north of the Dark Elf Terrain and west of the Blood Merchant Ports. I will have to go through the Graves of the Undead, but I have a bag of bones and it will be okay to make a passage. The area is called Horn of Cyclops. I will find the creatures there. When I do, it won’t matter if they are angry, happy or depressed.
Vampire Bat: You are not even going to make it through the Free Zombie Territory. Do you know that a mythical cyclops is not supposed to have a horn, and the name could be just because the area is shaped like that? The place is ruled by tribal chieftains. You are going to be caught in the middle of nowhere.
Vampire Owl: May be. But it is love at first sight, or sense. I have to give it a try. This is one of those things to do in order to meet Lady Death; she appears in case of victory and we can get to her in case of a defeat which is death.
Vampire Bat: Of what use is a dead Vampire Owl even to love? And most of all, what is the use to Uncle Dracula? You are not even going to be reborn again as a zombie if you die in the North.
Vampire Owl: You cannot stop my destiny with such strange words. My determination is bigger than all that.
Vampire Bat: You should still inform Uncle Dracula about the same and find the right moment.
Vampire Owl: I shall be doing the same. I will appoint Vampire Alligator in my place when I am not here.
Vampire Bat: But Vampire Crocodile is the third in command and the fourth most experienced person of the team.
Vampire Owl: Yes, but he and his stories of Lake Placid have been getting into my nerves. I am giving punishment transfer for him to the borders around the Werewolf Kingdom.
Vampire Bat: Not a fair decision as usual! I suggest you go through the sea then, around the Old Vampire Isle.
Vampire Owl: I shall give it some thought. The first thing to do is to say good bye to Uncle Dracula and make sure that he agrees to my points enough to grant me leave.
Vampire Bat: So be it then! So much for what follows the love at first sight, sense or whatever.
[The chambers were back to sensing the silence with no vampire presence].
