Patterns


*** 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 pattern of the killer is finally beginning to emerge and soon I will have some real information on when, where and who the killer strikes.

Unfortunately this is unlikely to endear me to the Human Police Representative, who I am supposed to be working with but unfortunately have not had any contact with for a week.

However, I must persevere as much as I can with this. I know The Ruler is happy with my reports, or I would have heard something from his Men.

Unfortunately Old Vampires are beginning to ask me questions as they fear humans’ interference. Most of us remember the mobs, but it will be a sunny day in our castles when I am unable to deflect questions from a few Old Vampires.

Unfortunately this time I am their Representative and this means I Have to be Seen to Do Something about all this.

So I interrogated a few likely people, which is always fun. Quite a coincidence that they happened to be enemies of those asking me questions.

None of those had any pertinent information as to the matter in hand; although some of them had interesting information of another sort.

Thankfully I do not have to w.o.r.k. while doing this investigation or it would be impossible for me to get anything of this investigation done.

A human would be stringing this investigation out. We fear The Ruler’s Men too much to do this.

All this means that I am invited to more parties than I usually am; people want to know what is going on but unfortunately rarely give me any pertinent information in return.

I doubt that this situation will improve my Status or lack of money but one never knows. An Old Vampire has to make the best of any situation they find themselves in.
