Caught Killer


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

We have finally caught the killer. Andy, the Human Police Representative, had worked out who was likely to be targeted and where. I had worked out what the killer would do and why.

We put our two viewpoints together and since the killer was targeting only important humans just two humans fitted who would be next.

Andy had the manpower to keep these humans under observation and wait until the killer struck, while The King’s Men waited in the background to take the killer down.

We put him in a cell at the prison to cool down as he was raving solidly and no-one could make any sense of what he was saying.

He is a Debutante Vampire called Michael, who is part way through his training.

Andy wanted me to do something called “background checks” on him. Once he had explained what they were, I explained that I had written a report which The Ruler would read and decide what to do.

He will have reports from his Men, but will want one from me, as it details how Andy and I worked together.

It was decided to let Michael reflect on his position for a while before The King’s Men removed him for questioning.

They will also be questioning his Sire, Parent and anyone else who was involved with him.

It will be amusing to watch this ripple through Old Vampire society while I am not on the receiving end of The Ruler’s Men.

Of course, it is a lot less amusing for those who have had contact with him.

I am getting calls from anxious Old Vampires who are asking my advice on this matter. I always say that it is better to contact The King’s Men yourself than the reverse.
