Scotland


*** 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 visit to the Old Vampire in Scotland who had killed important humans in the past was both useful and interesting.

I would have preferred to fly up to Scotland as a bat. However, since myself and Andy, who is the Human Police Representative, are working together we must at least put on an outward show.

Thankfully aeroplanes are comfortable enough to sleep in. I was unable to do so, but Andy snored the whole flight, while I read the dossier on the Old Vampire in question given to me by The King’s Men.

We arrived and were shown into her castle as expected and offered drink. Unfortunately Andy did not realise that it was blood.

While we were making pleasant chat, Andy tried to interrogate the Old Vampire in question.

I had tried to explain that we needed to barter with her, but that is not his way and he ended up with her fangs at his throat.

While it would have been amusing to have him finished off it would have been difficult to explain, so I regretfully called her off, then sent her out of the room so I could once again explain Old Vampires to Andy.

It took quite some time for him to realise that she cannot be threatened and will not give us information out of the goodness of her heart.

Once she came back in the room I was able to use some of the bargaining points which The Ruler had given me to get information out of her.

We are both agreed that she is not perpetrating the current disappearances, but she did have information that has given us several starting points.

Andy will look at the victims, while I will look at the killer and talk to allies and enemies alike, as The Ruler’s name will ensure compliance and truthfulness.
