My servant Jane is learning to hunt. I only found out because I caught her poring over texts she had been given.

This book-learning is a new thing to me as we teach Debutante Vampires by experience, but Jane has her duties and cannot be taken out to hunt for days on end until the basics have been drummed into her.

She explained to me that she is being taught on her days off. I gave her permission that as long as she performs her duties she can attend teaching as and when she wishes.

I have looked at these books of Jane’s and they seem to cover the basics of how to hunt adequately.

They have chapters on hunting in different environments and common problems she may face when hunting.

I asked how she was doing and she said that her teachers were complaining that she had picked up bad habits among New Vampires.

Of course, the teachers are correct as I have noticed bad habits in her before, which I reminded her of and set her squirming.

Unfortunately I cannot contact her teachers and find out how she is doing. I am not supposed to take an interest in a Servant.

I asked her why she was being taught to hunt and she admitted that when she was with friends she was not up to their standards.

I had never before given any thought to how our servants were taught, but if there had been any problems the butler would have taken care of it.

Thankfully another butler seems to have stepped in to educate Jane as to the things an Old Vampire Servant should know and how to behave in various situations.

I have seen much improvement as to her behaviour in recent months, which I am thankful for as I am unable to correct her as it is a butler’s job and not an employer’s.
