Being a vampire's housekeeper definitely has its downsides. The walls bleed. The ghosts play pranks, and the boss can get murderously angry if his prune juice runs low.
In this hilarious follow-up to Employment Interview With A Vampire, Deidre struggles to keep her sanity and her patience in the face of her boss's many "peculiarities". Nathaniel is unliving proof that tempers don't necessarily sweeten with age; he stubbornly clings to his gramophone, denounces the Internet as witch magic and is still fuming over the passage of the nineteenth amendment.
To Deidre, one thing is clear. Nathaniel needs to get a life...or at least an undead life. When Deidre takes it upon herself to expand her curmudgeon boss's social circle, she has no way of knowing that her efforts will bring a vampire hunter calling.
Armed with a walker, a fanny pack filled with stakes and a 40-year-old quest for vengeance, Silas may just prove Nathaniel's match.
Will the battle between Nathaniel and the vampire hunter be a fight to the death, or will someone break a hip first? And what happens to Deidre if the prune juice runs out? Find out in this satirical short story. (Approximately 6,700 words)
