the Overlook Hotel

alone in the Overlook Hotel and there was something evil about the place, she had been warned, she knew it was evil and she didn’t care. It was her fate, she was destined to be alone and forever.
The man was not human and he was definitely not a friend. He was a stranger, a vampire and the only way to get out of the hotel was to get into his bed, a bed that was a little more than four-poster.
She knew she was being silly. She should have left the hotel and never come back.
But she didn’t, she didn’t leave, not until the morning, not until after the sun had risen and she had been staked to the floor by the vampire.
In her hand she held a note written on the hotel stationery.
“If you ever come back to the Overlook Hotel, I will see you dead.”
At first she thought it was a joke. It had to be a joke. She was a woman, she was young and she was alive, what kind of monster could be so cruel as to threaten a living woman with death?
But then she saw the symbol, the symbol of the vampire. A skull and crossbones.
It was a threat. It was a death threat.
She read the note again and again and the words would not leave her mind, she could not forget them, they were etched in her brain, in her heart, they were burned into her flesh. “If you ever come back to the Overlook Hotel, I will see you dead.”
The vampire had been good to her, she had only stayed in the hotel for one night. She had been happy there, she had been carefree and young and she had forgotten the warning. Forgotten
