Howling of the Wolves

Posted: 26th March 2019 by Charlotte in Dracula Project

Jonathan leaves his fast, modern train, and joins the diligence coach. Against the advice of the local villagers and the coach driver, Jonathan is left at midnight at a crossroads in the mountains. He is picked up by a driver, who races through the night, chased by wolves. The night landscape is lit up by blue gas flames that mark the site of buried treasure on Walspurgisnacht.

Here I added an invented character – the Angel of Death, who floats above the landscape, and hovers all too closely to the terrified Jonathan.
