Synopsis for "The Vampyre!"

Mr. Aubrey leaves his home of London, England to venture to Greece with an unusual member of society by the name of Lord Ruthven. The trip occurs soon after miller's daughter is said to have killed herself over him. Mr. Aubrey leaves behind his sister Jessica as the two men leave for Greece through Paris, France.

It was in Paris that Aubrey began to question the character of Ruthven after he began solicitating very young women much like his sister Jessica. This caused Aubrey to anger and so he left for Greece ahead of Ruthven. Upon reaching a small inn he was welcomed by the innkeeper and spent much time with the innkeeper's daughter. Ruthven eventually caught up with him and that's when Aubrey decided to look into the ruins of the Parthenon which were said to be an evil place where a vampyre would have their evil orgies of death. The innkeeper tried to stop Aubrey but he didn't listen.

Traveling further into the ruins Aubrey happened upon a small cabin from which he heard a scream. The scream was that of Ianthe the innkeeper's daughter who had come to stop him. When he entered the cabin he was attacked by a shadowy figure. Thankfully in the case of Aubrey the villagers had followed him and were able to scare off the figure before it could kill him, but not before the creature had already slain Ianthe.

Aubrey awoke sometime later during bed rest by Lord Ruthven and the two agreed it'd be best to leave Greece, especially after Ianthe's parents died soon after her death due to heartbreak. During their trip they were ambushed upon by bandits. One of them was able to stab Ruthven with a sliver bladed dagger, but left Aubrey after taking their belongings. Ruthven in his dying breath made Aubrey take an oath to leave his body where it lay to bathe in the light of the moon and to tell no one back in London of his death. Aubrey agreed and Ruthven seemingly passed.

Upon reaching home some time later Aubrey visited is sister whom did not seem surprised by his return instead she relayed that she had already been told of his coming days ago by the man whom saved Aubrey's life Lord Ruthven whom Jessica is now engaged. Ruthven simply stared at Aubrey and told him to remember his sacred vow one he promised to keep for as long as he lived...
