A Servant Again


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

I now have a servant again.  I never thought a servant would wish to work anywhere other than a castle, but Jane says she is quite at home here.

She became a New Vampire in the nineteenth century.  When she fell out with her sire she wandered Britain without guidance.

Then she had the good fortune to meet an Old Vampire.  He removed all the myths of Old Vampires she had been told.  When he learnt of her former background as a servant in a house, he offered her a job.

Jane’s master and mistress had been taken by The Hunters and after she had been here a few days, I broached the subject of her becoming my servant permanently.

It turned out to be what she was hoping for.  I had already observed her doing jobs around my dwelling and noted that her standard of work and attitude are both good.

It is so enjoyable to have a servant to clean my house, answer my telephone and do my make-up, which is necessary as we cannot see our faces in a mirror.

Of course, I have to provide for Jane.  Fortunately my house is fully paid for, so I only have to provide drink and clothing, which is a small drain on my resources.

I have not only had to adjust to having a servant again, I have had to adjust to having only one servant.

When I had a castle, I had many servants who each had their own function.  Jane is now performing the functions of all the servants.  Of course she makes some mistakes, but on the whole is performing admirably.

The best part of having a servant is being awoken by her or him first thing in the morning with the drink which constitutes breakfast.

After having to wake myself up, I have supplied Jane with her choice in alarm clocks.
