Party


*** 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 only blot on my party was Michelle.  She is an Old Vampire who has killed prominent humans; not those who would be missed or from self-defence but to see a return to the old ways.

Since she helped catch Michael, the latest Human killer, she has been given my old job in the prison and last night she turned up.

I did not notice her until there was a sudden silence.  I turned around and she was alone in the middle of my living room.  One of my guests must have been playing at footman and let her in.

It was a tricky situation, as I could not turn her out as she had not done anything in my house that I could turn her out for.

So I had to welcome her and play the gracious hostess.  I did so and then informed her that I had given my servant the night off and everyone was taking their turn at being a servant.

I suggested that she take the coats of others and hang them up, as they were lying everywhere.

She drew herself up and opened her mouth, then thought better of it and acquiesced to my plan.  Thankfully that dissolved the atmosphere.

I had to endure murmurs of “this is what happens when you only have one servant” but put them in their place by asking if they were going to invest in one of my financial schemes, so I could afford another servant.

Since I have sunk so low I cannot afford financial schemes they were forced to withdraw rather than admit ignorance.  Of course, this will not endear me to them, but since they were my enemies I will take no further harm than I would have done.

Michelle took the coats with ill grace, flounced off and everyone breathed a sigh of relief.  Someone who has broken our Ruler’s laws is not welcome anywhere.
