498

Cosmic justice shall be dealt!  Young Loomis, the pitiful prole, can get nothing done while both cowering from The Lad and fearing the “dream curse.”  Such lapses in character originate, I am certain, from the rather low station of his birth and parentage, neither of which I can resolve.  If he cannot sidestep the curse, then he cannot tend to The Lad, and if he cannot tend to The Lad, then I must, and I am readying my lesson plan for his more advanced stages and not able to brook distraction.  Thus, I must slice off the serpent of the problem at its head — Angelique!  Knowing all too well the strange relationship between portraits and near-immortals (my own seems to be an outstanding conduit for communication), I have obtained the services of Mr. Samuel Evans to age said portrait.  Within hours, Angelique will look her full age.  If only she had magic to reverse that.

Ironic.  Were I still a vampire, I could “cure” her condition in a manner most fitting.  Pity that such a circularity of justice is not possible.

Tonight, age will most certainly go before beauty.
