Divorce


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

The divorce is going well. Henry has set a date for the hearing, which is in a couple of months’ time.

I now have to collate all documents and provide witnesses as to the state of our marriage and reasons why I want a divorce.

I am divorcing Jeremy on the grounds that he is not a fit husband for an Old Vampire and was not fulfilling his duties.

Disappearing to “find himself” will aid me there. It is not the done thing to disappear unless your life is in danger. Any other reason will cause a stir.

I have also managed to get Adele to obtain information for me gratis by pointing out that if she wishes to sell my Obligation and the divorce does not go my way, then the price for it will plummet.

If I am successful then she should be able to get a good price for my Obligation.

Adele does not like this, but will acquiesce because she will get something out of it.

The witnesses will attend because they will be able to dine out on the spectacle of my divorce, whatever the result is.

My servant Jane is also hard at work obtaining information as she does not want to go back to working in a castle under a butler.

She feels that she is quite comfortable as and where she is and does not want to change.

Jeremy will be amassing documentation and witnesses as well. I do not know who he will call, but you can never tell which way a witness will side until they are on the stand.

While on the stand we tell the truth to the best of our knowledge of how the situation is.

There are stories of people of whom it was proved they had deliberately lied and no Old Vampire wants to end up like they did.
