Returning to Normal


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

Unfortunately things are returning to normal. Invitations to parties are dying down to their normal level and I have returned to w.o.r.k.

At work I have been asked how I am, as my cover is that I was off ill, but we did not specify what my illness was as we did not know how long it would take to track the killer down.

After conferring with Andy, who is the Human Police Representative, we decided to say I had influenza with complications.

Apparently humans never go into details of disease and this has been proved true.

Unfortunately I have a lot to do at w.o.r.k., as of course my colleagues have not covered for me; just let things drift so my desk is currently covered in paper.

My colleagues are solicitous in only the way human women who are really not interested in you are.

I give them two weeks before they return to their usual obstructive and annoying selves.

Thankfully influenza can take a lot of recuperation, so my Human managers are not asking me many questions about my work and will not expect me to be Superwoman for a few weeks yet.

My servant Jane is not going out as much as she used to and seems to be moping because of it.

I have told her to buck up as if she was serving in a castle, as is normal, she would not get the opportunities she currently enjoys as they would be the prerogative of the butler.

Unfortunately this did not seem to work and I will just have to wait until she stops moping.

I am not surprised that none of the Old Vampires associated with the killer have returned. A week is a very short time for Old Vampires. I am still getting many anxious telephone calls about these, but unfortunately there is nothing I can do.
