Nosferatu


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

I have had to teach the New Vampire representative, Nosferatu, a lesson he will not forget in a hurry. Pity the bruises will soon fade.

I had a telephone call two nights ago from Michelle, who is doing my old job in the prison.

It seems Nosferatu walked into the Education Department she works in and started ordering her around.

Of course, she refused to follow any of his orders; this resulted in uproar in the Department and Michelle being called in by her human bosses and given a telling off.

Naturally, she was most upset about all this and unable to do anything about this situation as she was worried it would incur my wrath and that of the Kings’ Men, which was quite proper.

First, I reassured her that she had done the correct thing, especially as she could not let Nosferatu walk all over her.

I also reassured her that Nosferatu was acting completely outside his remit as New Vampire Representative and thus he was liable for what he had done.

I added that I would deal with him personally. This achieved several things : it makes Michelle an ally, gives me great personal satisfaction and reminds the prison that while I am, to all extents and purposes gone, they should not forget me.

After teaching Nosferatu a lesson and him shrieking that I would not hear the last of it I marched him to Michelle to apologise for what he had done in private. I would have liked a public apology, but that would have been a step too far.

I talked to Michelle’s employers after Nosferatu had withdrawn what he had done and affirmed that while he was important (I nearly choked on this) he was not responsible in any way, shape or form for Michelle and the only people she is beholden to are themselves and myself.
