Michelle, who is now doing my job at the prison, reports that Michael, the Debutante Vampire who killed humans, is being difficult.

It turns out that ascertaining the nature of this difficulty is in itself a problem.

He is not refusing to talk to Michelle or drink blood or do anything that is requested of him.

Yet things around him keep going wrong. While fights are commonplace in prison, Michelle has identified a cluster around Michael.

Equipment is also breaking down, with the result that Michael has had to be moved three times to secure him.

This last was so worrying I suggested Michelle sit down and write and submit a detailed report to The King’s Men.

She did this with some relief that the problem could be handed over to them.

I suspect Michael is paying human prisoners to disrupt the prison. Michelle disagrees, saying that an Old Vampire, even one who had fallen so low, would not associate with human prisoners.

I would normally agree with her, but I can think of no other explanation, as we Old Vampires possess no supernatural means such as telekinesis which would influence events.

We are stronger and faster than humans and there are some annoying effects such as being unable to appear in photographs, but that is all.

Michelle has no explanation for what is happening with Michael, which is why she sought my advice.

No doubt The King’s Men will take care of him. Undoubtedly he will not enjoy the experience, but it is his own fault for causing disruptions in prison. The human staff will look the other way at what is going on and will be quite happy that a problem not of their making is dealt with by someone else.
