Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)
One of the new threads reminded me of an article I read in the News of the World many years ago, it was headlined “I married a Brazilian Vampire”
All about this 60 year old woman who was left very wealthy when her husband died of a rare incurable disease in his fifties, he was a very successful film producer and she had money to burn, she travelled all over the globe looking for love or whatever and stayed in all the best hotels.
To make a fat story thin, she met and fell for this local lad while she was in Rio, he was 25 and a cook in one of the big hotels there, and his dumplings were to die for.
Anyway they got married and on the first night of the honeymoon she woke up in the wee hours of the morning, her husband was not beside her in the bed so she put on her nightgown to see was he in the bathroom, he was not there but his pyjamas robe and slippers were on the floor.
Fearing foul play she called the hotel manager who then began a search of all the unoccupied rooms and basement, not a sign of yerman anywhere. After a week of no news she went back brokenhearted to her home in Beverly hills.
About a month later when she was asleep she heard scratching on her window pane in the middle of the night, when she went to investigate there was nobody there, the third time she got up and opened the window a large brown Bat rushed in and went for her throat, she fainted with the shock. When her maid came in with her breakfast next morning she saw her mistress still lying on the floor and immediately called the police and the doctor. she was lifted onto the bed still conked out and during the doctors examination the maid noticed that her mistress had two wedding rings on her wedding ring finger, her own and the one she had bought for her missing husband. The poor woman told the police that her husband had turned into a Bat and wanted to bite her in order that she could join him in the land of the undead.
The woman never recovered from her ordeal and lost her mind, she had to have 24hour round the clock observation for the rest of her life.
Very mysterious and sad ain’t it, nobody could ever explain how the missing husbands ring ended up on the woman finger, although it doesn’t surprise me, I’ve heard some strange stories concerning rings in me day.
