Committee Meeting


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

The last Committee meeting was a quiet one. Sometimes we have nothing to report on non-human activity and this is one of the quiet times.

I suspect it is largely down to the continuing cold weather, especially as the Werewolf Representative was hunkered down in her chair in a thick coat, despite the heating.

I neither commented on nor asked about this as it is not the done thing. We all have peccadilloes common to our species and none of us wants them on show.

Unfortunately we must have a proper meeting for at least an hour without killing or injuring one another, which is much more likely than sharing tea and having a sing-song.

So we let Nosferatu, the New Vampire representative, drone on about his latest pet project. The fool wants to know exactly which New Vampires are in the country.

I openly laughed when he said this fifteen minutes into his speech, as it is a impossible task with beings that can fly.

Our Status Keeper has a good idea of whom is residing in Britain, but does not know about visitors and we Old Vampires have a habit of dropping off the map for a few decades to throw humans off the scent, then surfacing and fitting right back into our lives.

Of course Nosferatu was furious with me and had another brainless rant, which took care of another half an hour.

It would have been shorter, but the Police Representative kept interjecting inflammatory comments to keep things going.

He eventually calmed down and the rest of us thought it a good idea to leave.

It would have been a good idea an hour ago, but someone decided it was the right length for a meeting.
