Set in modern day Thailand, Traipoom is determined to honor his dead father’s request by finding 117 Ming dynasty antiques and returning them to its original spot, upon which, the 400 yr old curse of immortality and drinking red internal bodily fluid will end. The conflict of the story involves Traipoom’s fellow blood sucking vampires and his extended family members who much rather enjoy their immortality, and will do everything in their power to stop him. Traipoom finds help in locating the remaining 7 items with Plaichat, a young and fearless mortal, who specializes in the discovery and preservation of antiques. Unexpectedly on their journey to discover these antique treasures, Traipoom and Plaichat discover something much more dear: love.
The theme of their love is one of selfless, support, and giving, very much in connection to their character’s personality and traits. Traipoom is a strict gentleman; he is wise, generous, confident and sure of himself. He despises drinking blood in order to survive and prefers to keep to himself. But most importantly, he is afraid to love anyone for fear of outliving them. He believes that watching the people he cares about being buried before his eyes is hard enough as it is, but to love and to lose someone would be unbearable. He does not wish his eternal life on anyone. Then comes Plaichat, who is the polar opposite: she is vibrant, lively, and clumsy and wears her heart on her sleeves. She prefers to talk to fill in the void and enjoys spending her time reviving and showcasing antiques. When brought together, they truly supplement each other.
