not a jolly old time

"You gave her pig's blood," Ziggy said in distaste as he helped his grand uncle clean up the mess afterwards. That was all he was good for, Ziggy was beginning to think.

"She hardly noticed." Mannie remained on task. It was like he had a plan of some kind. Still, Ziggy wasn't sure where he played into this, other than being boy Friday or some nonsense.

"What is it you want from me, again?" Ziggy hated washing dishes. There wasn't even a dishwasher in the old farm house. How did these people live. Well, they had feasted on Bella's Dad that he'd mixed in with the pigs blood. Mannie was very good at making things appear to be something different from what it really were. But still there was the manual labor to tend to, Ziggy got that part.

"Why, there is Alice, of course." Mannie smile so devilish then.

"Another one?"

"She's a vamp, you twit." Mannie made a face.

"What if I don't like her? Will you use magic on me?" Ziggy gave him a sullen look.

"If I must." Mannie didn't look to happy about it. "Just charm her. That's all I'm asking."


"Well, I'm not saying she'd, eat you. That family very well thinks they can save the vamps of the world. Some shit like that. I just want you to make her forget him. You know, you're fresh meat." Now Mannie was being silly and Ziggy just couldn't get into it. Didn't Mannie know girls, were icky to him?
