The Woman with the Velvet Ribbon around her Neck (Urban Legend) by Drac Von Stoller Summary
Sam Edwards was a wealthy lonely man that lived all alone in his mansion. Sam was in his late forties and tired of not having a companion to share his wealth with. He decided he'd check out the bar scene and see if he could find a lady with the same interests as his. Sam hopped in his Rolls Royce not caring that it was a stormy night. Sam pulled into Mack's tavern, ready to find his dream lady. He grabbed his umbrella popped it open as he stepped out of his car and walked up to the door, shook the rain off of his umbrella underneath the canopy. He stepped inside the tavern that was filled with cigarette smoke, loud music, and laughter all around. Sam approached the bar, sat down, and the bartender said "What can I get for you?" Sam replied "I'll have a scotch whiskey on the rocks." The bartender replied "coming right up." As Sam was drinking his scotch whiskey, he noticed a very beautiful woman sitting alone in a corner table, crying. Sam asked the bartender for an extra glass of scotch whiskey. Sam brought his drinks over to where the woman was sitting, and said "Would it be alright if I sat beside you? I have no one to talk to." The woman replied "Sure, I too could use some company right now." The more Sam and the woman engaged in conversation, they both said "It's like I've known you all my life" and they both laughed and shared a kiss. Sam asked the woman if he could see her again and she said "Yes!" "Can I give you a ride home?" asked Sam. The woman just wept uncontrollably. Sam said "What's the matter?" She wiped the tears from her eyes and said "I don't have a place I call home." Sam said "Come into my arms." They embraced and before she could speak, Sam touched his fingers on her lips and said "If it's really that important to tell me, we can talk about it later." Sam and the woman got up from the table and left the tavern. Sam held his umbrella over her head keeping the rain away from her fragile body. He opened the passenger door so she could get in from the rain. They drove off through the stormy weather anticipating a night of passion. As they were driving Sam asked, "We've laughed and shared a kiss together, but you haven't told me your name?" "I'm sorry, my name is Melissa." "Well, Melissa, since you have no place to stay, it would be my pleasure if you could stay at my mansion, and if things get really serious between us maybe we could get married some day." "That sounds fine to me," replied Melissa. Melissa said "I'll stay, on one condition." "What would that be?" asked Sam. "Under no circumstances are you to remove my ribbon from my neck." Sam laughed and said "Are you serious?" "Yes, I'm dead serious. Now promise me you won't remove the ribbon around neck," said Melissa, in a serious voice. Sam replied, "Okay! Okay! I'll honor your wishes."
