Complaint


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

My New Vampire contact in the prison, Columbine, has made a complaint about me.

Apparently I am not bringing her blood in regularly and letting her go hungry.

This is ridiculous. The Ruler has said I should deliver blood to the New Vampires as well as the Old Vampires in this prison. There is no bending of rules, or of working to the letter and not the spirit as he is The Ruler.

He could literally have my head if I disobeyed him in any way. While Old Vampires do not kill other Old Vampires, I can see several ways that I could be manipulated into this.

The Ruler is better than me, or he would not be The Ruler, so he can probably see several more.

It is a pity I am not suspended over this complaint, as I have a few parties to attend.

Instead, I am now being supervised while I deliver blood. There is a human who now accompanies me and whom I am expected to protect.

Columbine also complained that I was taking too long to deliver blood.

This complaint was quickly dismissed as I have to speak to Old Vampires.

Very few others will pass the time of day with them and they need to be kept abreast of what is happening on the outside.

From my point of view, they could be useful once they have got out, except if they are those rare Old Vampires whose Status has been reduced to zero.

We Old Vampires are used to doing what we want, when we want and this scrutinisation is demeaning.

I don’t do this to my servant, I let her get on with her tasks when she wants, as long as her tasks are done.

I do not know what The Ruler’s attitude to this complaint is. It is likely he is awaiting the outcome of the complaint.
