The Duty of an Obligatee


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

Adele is not happy with me.  I should be kow-towing to her like a good little Obligatee and here I am, flouting her rules.

Several times I have been unable to give her the information she required from the prison, but there are times when I have had to give in and obtain it.  It annoys me, as I am risking my neck for nothing.

She has given me several lectures on the duties of an Obligatee.  I just stand there and agree and then go and do what I please.

Adele does not realise that while the goal is to have your Obligatees asking your permission before they think of getting up in the evening, this only happens after a few centuries and sometimes not at all.

I have had Obligatees for centuries and now know all about them.  I remember I was so clumsy with my first Obligatee whereas he was clever and bought himself out.

I think that one of the reasons why Adele only uses me to get information from the prison is because if the task was anything else I would simply pass it on to one of my Obligatees.

I know many ways to get an Obligatee to do what you want.  I am not putting them in here in case they are used against me.

With all people, from Obligatees to servants to other Old Vampires, there is only so far you can push people.

Everyone has a limit.  Maybe she or he is having a bad day.  Maybe she or he are really not prepared to do what you are asking of them.  It doesn’t matter, as whatever the reason is you are not getting what you want.

People need their limits to be respected.  They can and will only do so much.

With Obligatees, this is where more questionable methods come into play.  However, it is better not to use them as the person may end up hating and resisting you when you want them compliant and pliable.
