Darius, begotten son of Tehrror, forsaken son of Marklon, decided to drive into
town the night his destiny came to claim him. Two weeks before, he had directed
his trusted, elderly doggen, Fritz Perlmutter, to go to the BMW of Caldwell
dealership and accept delivery of a brand-new 735i. The car had been ordered
about six months before, and although vampires did not celebrate the human
Christmas holiday, as its arrival date drew nearer, Darius knew all about
sugarplums dancing in the head.
The sweet anticipation had been an antidote to so much dread and duty in
his life, and the wait had been interminable. There had even been a delay or two,
the production in Germany hitting a snag, and then the cross-Atlantic shipping
taking longer than scheduled. But then, finally, the call had come in, and when
Darius had returned home after a weekend away of ghting, covered in black
blood that smelled like baby powder, with a gunshot wound through the meat
of his upper left arm, Fritz had whipped open the back door and proclaimed
that “she is being prepared and is ready to be gathered tomorrow afternoon!”
Darius had stood there on the kitchen stoop like a big dummy, his sluggish,
exhausted brain failing to process whatever news had made his butler light up
like a streetlamp. And then it had sunk in. Talk about your second wind.
As a doggen, Fritz could go out into the spring sunlight, and given that he was
the most faithful servant on the planet, he had been as excited as his master when
he’d headed o twelve hours later to pick up the new car. The last sixty minutes
or so of patience had been a slog of centuries-long duration, and Darius had
churned through the time pacing in his subterranean bedroom, circling his desk,
his bed, his seating area. The hearth. The bath. Rinse and repeat.
Fritz had come down to report she was safely on the premises as soon as he’d
gotten home, but given that the gracious Federal mansion had a detached garage,
there had been no way to go see the car until the sun was under the horizon.
That it was spring in upstate New York meant there had been another foreverwait, and Darius had wished, even though the nicer weather was more enjoyable,
that the calendar had been closer to December 21.
Hell, in winter, he could have gone to the dealership himself.
And then it was time.
