I’m not really one for vampire 🧛♀️ stories but this is one that embodies some parts of life if you look 👀 deeper. The story of Baital Pachisi, this was a story about a kind who told a 🧙♂️ he would 🧢 capture a Baital (a spirit with vampire 🧛♀️ like qualities). Every time this king would come across this Baital he would never catch it. This Baital enjoyed telling riddles of how to do so though. The catch was if the kind answered correctly the spirit was able to escape, if he knew and lied about not knowing it (his head would explode), and if he simply was unable to answer the baital would be captured. This resulted into 25 times this creature escaped. What I get out of this story is that a lot of times people make things purposely difficult , but that doesn’t mean give up. Telling the truth is important as well , as trying to think of life’s riddles that your thrown and being able to juggle a giant web of lies that you sew ,could quite literally be no different in this story as it is not real life (metaphorically at least your head’s not gonna actually explode, but your mind will be restless and feel like it is). Also if you’re going to make a promise to someone keep it.
