Emily tugs at her father’s shirt, “Daddy, who are you looking for?”

Her father smiles and picks her up, “Hey sweets, I was looking for you, who else? Did you enjoy story time with Ms. Rose?”

“Sure did, daddy.” Emily says then whispers, “Ms. Rose is over there, in case you’re wondering.” She winks.

He gives his daughter a look and wonders. How did my little girl come to know me so well? Before he can ponder further, Miss Rose strides over, “Hi,” she says.

“Uh hi.” He stutters. “I, I…”

“Daddy’s wondering if you wanna have coffee with him.”

Approaching the Mystical Tree, she whispered, “Grandfather?” Slowly, a white, bony hand emerges.

“You’ve come, child.”

“Yes and I brought nourishment.” She handed him the bags of blood. Thirstily, he devoured bag upon bag. “I wish I brought more.”

“You did good, child. I will be satiated for days. Besides, it isn’t as though I have anywhere to be other than this prison.”

“I’m working on getting you out of this horrid place, grandfather. I promise I will get you out.”

He chuckled, “Five centuries of imprisonment and it still feels like yesterday when the old bat cast the spell.”
