Palms sweating... Whew! Just under the wire. Don't like to cut things this close, but RL has been a WILD ride lately! Now I proudly present:
This Victorian Beauty is peacefully situated in a highly desirable district of Moonlight Falls, but secrets shroud this property and its owner, the charming and enigmatic Alistair Forsyte. Seriously, what is his deal? And WHY is he so damn handsome?
Built in 1848 by Mr. Forsyte after having made a fortune investing in rail, no expense was spared in the construction of Forsyte Manor. The home features multiple fireplaces, a third-floor Master Suite and a tower with a lovely 180° view of the neighborhood and surrounding wilderness. The garage was added five years ago and the kitchen was recently renovated with high-efficiency retro reproduction appliances. A sizable and priceless wine collection graces the root cellar which also boasts ample storage for the foods produced by the grounds' garden and conservatory. Some of the more... quaint... features of this home include a smallish graveyard and a dungeon. Yes, a dungeon... complete with two cells and a torture chamber. The entrance to this haunting secret is the bookcase in the home's classical library.
Alistair Forsyte was an affluent, business-minded man. With a nose for talent and good ideas, he made a fortune investing. Proposals like interstate railways and a newfangled contraption called a locomotive were not popular in the mainstream. Alistair was bold, he took chances, he took them to the bank and in 1848, he took a bride. Per the advice of his mentor, Thaddeus Peke, he moved to Moonlight Falls and built a stately manor. For years, Thaddeus had offered Alistair sage advice and investment strategies, but in the summer of 1848, he offered Alistair something a little more… substantial. The return on immortality was undeniable, so Alistair took Thaddeus up on his offer and was turned into a vampire…
Years and years went by, and it seemed to Alistair that he had made the ultimate bad business decision. Man was not meant to live forever. With everyone he ever loved dead, some by his own doing, it is no surprise that he turned into a monster. Creating a ripped-from-a-storybook dungeon from unused basement space, Alistair Forsyte made a game of torturing and sustaining the victims he intended to drink. All of them were murderers and rapists, of course.
Sometime in the 1950s, a beautiful young lady touched the heart of this beast.
Penelope was a gentle soul who personified kindness and purity. She was a ripped-from-a-storybook heroin sent to torment Alistair, he was sure of it. He had to keep his secret. He shouldn’t let her get too close.
But he was smitten. So he took her as his wife.
One day, the inevitable happened.
That was it. Alistair could only offer her what Thaddeus had offered him more than a century before…
You finish the story.
