The darkest day of the month was chosen for accomplishing this. It was the biggest mission that the Vampire Team had undertaken during their long journey together. They had fought the Great Pimple Overlord, the Devil’s Shadow, the Minions of the Lich Queen, Devourers of the Shadows and many more, but none of them could match up to this great objective. This was not just for the Vampire World, but for the whole realm and its existence which rested on one thing, as the Vampire Owl switched on the small dynamo torch.
“This thing is not working. What a ridiculous device. I knew that those human salesmen were lying” said the Vampire Owl which shaking the torch.
“Yes, it won’t work until you charge the dynamo. Start turning that lob to charge it” said the Vampire Bat.
“These are ridiculous inventions from the humans. We could have just borrowed that magic wand from the Potato Witch which could have worked without charge. I will get this one charged. Do it, apprentice” Vampire Owl passed the torch to the Vampire Hamster.
“I have a very strong feeling that this is a flawed plan and bring no positive results. Do you really think that this will work?” asked the Vampire Crocodile.
“Yes, why not? We have entered the projection of Mavis Dracula’s mind so that we can bring the inspiration right from within. This is a special personal mission for Uncle Dracula. We can’t fail in this. We will find a solution right inside her mind so that she will feel better and face her future with better confidence” said the Vampire Bat.
“Wait! I sense evil. My crow sense is triggered” said the Vampire Crow.
“Holy Vampire Lords! Everybody stay calm. It is the dangerous Twilight essence! How did it even get in here?” asked the Vampire Raven.
“Take it! Bring it and put it in the Anti-negativity Orb. We don’t want such things wandering around in her mind. It will weaken her true vampire essence” said the Vampire Bat.
“Done! But where is the inspiration? Where is the source?” asked the Vampire Alligator after taking the Twilight away.
“It had to be somewhere around here according to the sources” wondered the Vampire Owl.
“The Great Vampire Oracle is never wrong; it says so in our text books” said the Vampire Crow.
“But there is no inspiration! We had to awaken it and prepare it to be launched from within. This is real shame” said the Vampire Owl.
“Wait! What is that sound getting stronger? I think that we are being teleported back to reality” said the Vampire Bat.
“And, then we were back without accomplishing anything in particular. Note this small leap for the vampire kind, my dear brethren because we are going to forget this forgettable experience very soon” said the Vampire Owl.
“Oh there you are! Hello, Mavis. How are you today? It is good to see you again” they said in one voice.
“It is good to see you all once again. I am feeling pretty good. But I have heard about what you people were doing. Are you completely out of your mind?” asked Mavis.
“I believe that these people are just twenty eight percent sane, madam. I am at around twenty three percent” said the Vampire Hamster.
“What? Why do you need to wander around inside my mind? Don’t you know that you people are my real inspiration? she asked.
“But it was just a few days ago, that Uncle Dracula had asked for…”
“Forget him. He is too worried about everything, and so are you people. I have enough inspiration inside my mind, and what I need here is you people who are my family” she added.
“See, I had told you that the first time this idea came up” said the Vampire Owl.
“Yes, you told the exact opposite and we were forced into this idea” said the Vampire Bat.
“It is okay, people. I am inspired. There is absolutely no problem at all. You can tell that to my dad and have a special blood feast tonight” she said.
The Vampire Team left the room, and Mavis Dracula wondered about what it really meant to be inspired from within. She knew that all that she needed to be inspired was the family. It was her strength and it was the boost to her soul. Meanwhile, Dracula was sitting on the branch of a tree outside the tree and wondering if what she said was true.
