Under an Obligation


I have spent the last week toeing the line and being a good girl, which I hate.  I’m a vampire and definition of being a vampire is being very, very bad.

Adele has been tracking my movements, which has been very annoying.  I haven’t been able to go out for the last week or so without her turning up.

Yesterday she even posed as a visitor to the prison.  We currently have one Old Vampire in prison, and as Old Vampires don’t usually get visitors they are pleased to see anyone.

However, I was Not Pleased to see her and Had Words with her when we got outside the prison.

Actually, it was more like a screaming argument.  I may have an obligation to Adele, but I do not have to put up with my movements being scrutinised.

Honestly, it was like being human all over again.  Having to get my father’s permission to do anything, to even go outside the castle, when all I wanted to do was to roam the fields and be free.

Adele says that she’s not bailing me out again.  Now I’m under an obligation to her, she doesn’t have to.  She now owns me.

I did point out that she needs my co-operation to keep our Obligation a secret, so she has now stopped watching me.  A minor victory.

If a vampire is Obligated to you then you naturally wish to keep it secret.

If people find out that there is an Obligation going on between you then people who know about the Obligation will be able not only to work around the Obligation but to make sure false information is passed to you, so your use as an Obligatee starts to fade and diminish.

So for the moment I have some freedom but am still Adele’s bitch.


Debutante Vampires before Dracula came out, vampires who had been newly turned vampire were taught the rules of society.  They then “came out” when they were deemed presentable to vampire society as debutantes.

The Committee see The Committee to Regulate Non-Human Activity

The Committee to Regulate Non-Human Activity a committee that meets monthly and talks about affairs to do with werewolves, vampires and humans

The Hunters see Vampire Hunters

New Vampires vampires who do not want to be Old Vampires, often live as Goths and hold down jobs.  This started after Dracula came out.

Obligation when one vampire is under an obligation from another s/he has to do as they say

Old Vampires vampires who are polite society.  Either turned vampire before Dracula came out or were turned after by an Old Vampire and decided to join the Old Vampires.

Parent the vampire who brought you up (if you are an Old Vampire) in polite society

Sire the vampire who made you a vampire

Vampire Hunters New vampires who hunt down those vampires who have committed crimes

Vampire Servants servants who are vampires themselves.  Mostly Old Vampires, one of their functions is to repeat gossip to the Old Vampires they serve
