Hotel Babylon

By Joao_Lopes  
Hotel Babylon is a scary and filty place. Sasha an unscrupulous business man found that this hotel ideal for their shady business. Sasha was a man with aged appearance caused by alcohol and drugs he had to take to stay awake at night. Coming from humble family of Romanian Transylvania, Sasha revealed since childhood to be different, but very diferent from the rest of the children at the Village.
He was born with the fate that his Great Grandmother left him .... a psychic power strange and scary at the same time. Sasha could rise up in spirit when he was asleep. While the body rested, he could walk throught night or day . Watching and guarding secrets, conversations in order to later use on his behalf. Blackmailed many people using his power. Gained a lot of money, influence and easily got rich. Became a business man and start to work in the prostitution, owning several houses where love is paid ... where the soul is sold when there's nothing left to sell. Today Sasha sat at the table in the bar of the Babylon Hotel with another mobster, Mirko. A traffick dealer of women from Russia and South America on a business deal that involved a lot of money ... 2 million U.S. dollars. Nobody wants to lose. After hours trading, Sasha calls for a break, says he is exhausted. Needs to rest. He says "let proceed negotiations at dinner time" ... " i really need to think and rest awhile". Retired to their rooms. Mirko gathers his partenrs to find a way to bring the best in this business deal. Sasha does what he always did and he has served so well throught the years. Falls asleep and leaves his body towards Mirko. He listens carefully and takes note of the Russian plan. "Now we'll see who will be better you russian bastards." His spirit returned to the room and enters his body and there's no response. "What's going on"- he thinks. Something wrong and never happened before. The spirit leaves the body again, when he notice that he was been murdered. There's a small daggar blade of tartar styyle inserted into his throat. Part of his neck had been cuted open. The two million dollars suitcase...vanish. The night was coming, and at the Babylon Hotel there's one more soul lost and begging for justice. The Hotel Babylon is where many souls are lost and others find themselfs...
Well this could be another story, but if there is you who are going to tell.

I'm seeing the freedom of the sky, so near and yet so horribly far away. This has the feeling of a prison. Disturbing image.
