The Vampire’s Bard

While reading old vampire tales I came across an Irish legend, the story of Dearg-Due, the Red Bloodsucker. As the legend goes, she killed was forced to give up a peasant lover to marry her father’s choice. And…since those things never go well, the whole thing ended in tragedy.

Well, in my retelling, it wasn’t actually a crass peasant boy…but a lovely and cultured travelling bard, who happened to be a woman.

The tragedy remains the same, dead husband, dead bard, dead, well, undead Dearg. With a prophesy under her belt, she waits for her love to come again. Finally her travels take her to Hollywood, California and the fabulous Sunset Strip.
