This Obligation is pulling me in deeper and deeper. Adele is asking for more and more information from me; some of it is not information I wish to give.

The terms she asks for the information with are still fluid enough so I can get around them and give her false information.

Other information she wants is fairly innocuous : information on the vampires held and what facilities they avail themselves of.

Information on vampires is the only information I am freely allowed to take outside the prison, as no-one would ever help a vampire in prison.

I am only involved in the prison as I have to work there and provide information to The Committee on the vampires in its environs.

I have still been unable to find out why Adele wants information on the prison. Apart from the vampires and werewolves housed in it, it is a human concern.

Adele is no longer inviting me to parties, so she must be concerned that I will find out.

She has spread the story that I have asked her for a loan one time too often and we have fallen out.

It worries me that, once again, I am being pulled into something deeper than I wish to be.

I have bled Obligatees deeply for information until they have been unable to give any more; whereupon I have sold their Obligations or used them until they are no longer of any use to me.

However, I will not yet be able to buy myself out of this Obligation and must do the best I can.

I have avoided doing anything that would lower my Status and asked an Obligatee to do it instead.

It seems that whoever we are, from time to time we all find ourselves in a situation that we are unable to escape.
