Michael, who is the Old Vampire who killed humans, is being released from The King’s Men next week.

This means a meeting with Andy, the Human Police Representative, to arrange interviews with Michael for which I have to be on hand to make sure he behaves.

Curious that these should take place over the Christmas period and my servant Jane is not happy about it, but I have duties to perform and as I told her, The Ruler would not be happy if I didn’t perform these duties.

I have already had one meeting with Andy to underline the fact that no human should attempt to harm Michael.

While it is quite understandable that humans should want him to fall down the stairs, harm caused to humans who attempt to harm Old Vampires is not covered by current law.

This is a good thing, but I draw the line at a criminal such as Michael harming humans, unless they are stupid enough to ignore my warning.

I am also tasked with Michael’s rehabilitation. The Ruler has decided that he could be a productive member of society, as others who have been convicted of killing humans are now.

It would have done me no good to argue against this. Traditionally it is the Old Vampire Representative who deals with such as these.

I have a good track record with Debutante Vampires, of which Michael is one.

His file is being released to me soon and I have been told that even Jane is not allowed to see it.

This probably means one of The Ruler’s Men standing over me as I read it and memorise the pertinent chunks.

It will not be easy to persuade Michael that he cannot go around drinking any human he chooses and must be selective about his prey. They are food, after all.
