The hotel has just come into view. It is now just on dusk and all these birds are leaving the hotel's tower but as they fly closer they aren't birds they are BATS
We beat a path through the bats to the front entrance of the hotel; once inside all eyes turn our way! It is a bit daunting, I think we must have startled everyone with our entrance.
The young woman behind the front desk is a bewitching beauty, with a porcelain complexion, honey coloured eyes, long dark red ombre hair, dressed in a soft white blouse and tailored black dress pants. On closer inspection, everyone at the hotel has similar features, except some people, have very dark, almost black hypnotic eyes. The effect is very conflicting it makes you want to run but you are compelled to stay. There are posters on the walls advertising the upcoming Halloween Party, it depicts past parties and the costumes are incredibly realistic. The decor is Victorian Gothic in hues of black, purple and red.
I return my attention back to Gabriela, the young woman from the front desk. "Good evening Klainey. You are the first person to arrive from your team, I am sure you will enjoy your stay with us at Hotel Transylvania. Jim has rented out the entire 2nd floor for your investigative team".
Awww thanks, Jim
"Please remember why you are here and don't go outside alone after dark; we wouldn't want you becoming one of the statistics"!
I ask Gabriela about her bat problem and she says "The bats are in the west-wing tower, it is closed off to the public and the investigation. We are getting some professionals out to relocate the colony of bats, so don't be alarmed if you see any movement or lights coming from that direction". That suits me fine as I have, chiroptophobia, a fear of bats.
While having breakfast in the dining room there is a lot of commotion. I see Gabriela and she says another villager is missing, that will be the 5th person. I hope the team will be along soon!
