After more than two centuries, the man felt he had endured enough. Born Rudolph Sonthofen and transformed into a vampire at a young age, he adapted to the limitations of his bizarre being. But, his prolonged life was filled with loss, grief, frustration, and deceit. No longer did this cursed person feel it worthwhile to survive. No longer did he want to pass the endless nights hopeless and alone. No longer did he want to be immortal among mortals. Having outlived all who knew him, this vampire recounts his life in a suicide letter which he signs anonymously "Eternally Yours."
