Holiday in Germany


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

Humans get more holiday these days, so that means I do too.  I badly needed a break from my job so I went to Germany again and took Jane with me.

When Jane became an Old Vampire Servant it meant that whatever her past was, all that mattered now was that she was an Old Vampire Servant.

Despite my assurances Jane has never been sure her past did not matter because it matters for those New Vampires, which she once was.

The Vampire Servants in Germany spoke to Jane about her role as an Old Vampire Servant and have taken that uncertainty away.

I do not ask how; that is Servants’ business.  All that is important is that Jane is now sure of her role in life.

Germany was glorious as usual.  It is one of my favourite countries to live in and I enjoy returning to it time after time.

They have that precision that makes everything easier, while in Britain things may happen or they may not happen.

That precision makes it easier to relax through life, knowing that what is promised will happen, with no unforeseen circumstances getting in the way.

We had a glorious midnight picnic; myself, my hosts, one or two friends and no servants, who were all given the night off.

We relaxed in the darkest and coolest of woods; knowing that we had nothing to fear and everything feared us.

Blood flowed and the hunt was on for any human stupid enough to be in the forest when the sun was down.

We were careful to familiarise ourselves with families who lived in that region and the forest is out of the way of normal tourist routes.  This does not normally pose much of a hunt, but our hosts had found people who could run and wanted to die.
