I have just come back from a holiday paid for by the Ruler.  It turned out that he was so furious with the outcome of the fence he had his Men look into it.

For a few days his Men turned vampire society inside out.  They questioned everyone involved, including myself, my servant Jane and trainer Gerhardt.

Jane was very nervous about it until I told her that as far as any Old Vampires were concerned she was a full Vampire Servant and her origins as a New Vampire did not matter.

I don’t know what they said to her, but she came back relaxed, secure and started bustling around.

Gerhardt went off with the Ruler’s Men and has since disappeared, but my sources have reassured me that he has left the country; I assume he has concluded the business he came to England to do.

The upshot of this was that all three of us came out of it well and both Jane and I were sent on a paid holiday to Venice as a reward.

It is a long time since I have been to Venice and the city has changed.  A lot of repairs have been done.

Venice is still a vampire paradise: it is so easy to hunt with mask and costume on.  Tourists are still such easy prey in Venice.

It was good having Jane with me; seeing the city through a fresh pair of eyes.  She has never been outside England and the splendour of Venice overawed her at times.

Venice is all antique gold, marble, fine bloods, masks, costumes and balls.  I was in my element as I whirled around in ecstasy for the whole week, while Jane often came back flushed and late from consorting with other servants.

All she would tell me is that the Italian Vampire Servants wanted to improve their English.  It seems that sleeping with a dictionary is back in fashion.
