Holiday at the Caves


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTION OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

The holiday itself was fabulous.  Adele didn’t know I was using her name to gain admittance to my holiday in the caves of Cheddar Gorge until I had come back.  By then it was too late.

The caves of Cheddar Gorge have a human section, a vampire section and a werewolf section, although why they’d want to use the caves is beyond me.

The vampire part is very exclusive.  It was so nice being waited on hand and foot for the first time since I lost my castle.  And by hand and foot, I mean I even had someone to take off my shoes for me.

At the caves they have luxury baths with all the right beauty aids to keep your skin looking smooth, with drinks served by a smooth-skinned waiter who will answer all your calls beside the bath.

Each vampire has one bath in a room full of baths to themselves.  They have willing donors for the blood to fill baths.  There’s always someone poor enough to sell blood.

Vampires as a whole do not use saunas.  We find they dry the skin out too much as we do not have sweat glands or tears.

It is a fantastic location, having baths among stalagmites and stalactites, which reflect the light beautifully.

There are so many beauty treatments at the caves : mud baths, wet wraps, dry wraps, massage – you name it, they had it.  It was heavenly bliss.

Because of my low Status people were surprised I was at the baths.  I merely dropped Adele’s name.  It is no secret that she has given me help in the past and people know I have more than enough information to pay for it.

Adele will not reveal my manipulation of her as if the Status Keeper hears and substantiates the rumour she could lose Status.
