“Harker,” Dracula smiles, black blood bubbling from his lips. “Good solicitor, bad conversationalist.”
“Do it again Herr John, now!” Van Helsing is shouting, his gout-riddled form hobbling closer through the cellar. “Kill the beast, save us all!” screaming now, the stake trembles in Harker’s grip.
The Count convulses, coughing tar. No not a cough, but low, insidious laughter.
“Monster,” Harker says, positioning the stake. “For Lucy, Mina.” As the mallet descends, thunder reverberates through the castle.
Rank, dying breath, Dracula speaks in a whisper. “Fool, misguided fool. You’re not saving anyone. Helsing, he’s my kin. Just levelling the playing field.”
