I apologise for the enforced gap between when I last wrote and now.

An Old Vampire, grateful to myself for removing a problem with the local werewolves, organised a holiday in Russia as a reward.

The problem had been easy enough to remove; I talked to the Werewolf Representative and it turned out that the pack had been a thorn in her side and she was glad of any excuse to discipline them.

Michelle, who took over my job in the prison, was glad to take over my duties and I spent a day briefing her.

Unfortunately, her attitude towards me has worsened; I did not have time to address this before I left, but I will do so soon.

As usual, I had to endure my servant Jane in a heightened state of excitement.  Her taste in music has not improved.

Until she worked for me she did not visit other countries, whereas I have visited all European countries, a few Asian and African ones and I went to the Americas once.

I am pleased to say that my hosts commented favourably on Jane’s behaviour; the lessons she has been receiving from various Old Vampire Butlers have improved her and when I next see them I will tip them over-generously.

She is in an unusual position as she is the only servant to an Old Vampire and they do not want her to let the side down, so according to them and I, her lessons are mandatory.

The holiday itself was most enjoyable and I was able to strengthen connections between British and Russian Old Vampires.

Jane also strengthened connections between British and Russian Old Vampire Servants.  It is not for me to ask why, but I can make an educated guess.

You never know when you will need connections in a tight spot.

Debutante Vampires before Dracula came out, vampires who had been newly turned vampire were taught the rules of society.  They then “came out” when they were deemed presentable to vampire society as debutantes.  They are the only Old Vampires who have a zero level of Status and are acceptable.
