To add to my problems at work, my New Vampire informant Columbine has had her cell spun.
A “cell spin” is when the officers search an offender’s cell for contraband materials.
She has been caught with two mobile phones, a quantity of drugs and has been moved to the Seg, which is short for Segregation Area, which she will not be allowed out of until at least her case has been heard.
According to her it’s all my fault that she is down the Seg. She, like other young offenders do not see that it is their actions that have put them inside or got their cell spun. It’s always someone else’s fault.
According to her I was talking to the officers after seeing her and I grassed her up. I was talking to the officers after seeing Columbine, but it was about a totally different offender and I did not know about the contraband.
She is fuming about this in only the way a vampire can, by trying to knock chunks out of the walls.
This is why each prison has a few cells designated for vampires. Each cell has walls which look normal, but are in fact padding.
The padding is treated in chemicals which make it sticky if pierced, so an enraged vampire who sinks their hands in it will be caught in the padding and spend a lot of time extricating themselves.
A human prisoner can trash her or his cell, but a vampire can completely destroy it, which would be difficult to explain.
Hopefully she will cool down in a few months when she misses the information I give her about the vampire world and we will be back to our normal relationship.
All I can do is wait until she’s desperate for blood and hand it over then. If I hand it over any sooner I risk being attacked and I would respond as a vampire.
