All Hail the Lord Protractor

Vampire Hamster: All Hail the Lord Protractor, the greatest of our times, and the undisputed ruler of the New Vampire World!

Vampire Bat: It is Lord Protector! Stop reminding me of my terrible Mathematics teacher.

Vampire Hamster: Oh! My bad. I am still getting closer to it. Last time I had said Lord Potato. Don’t you remember? Please notice the improvement and give a recommendation to Lord Dracula to reward me.

Vampire Owl: I think he passed the tenth exams when free A+ were given by the government, forget the memory problems – he can remember his mistakes, but not the corrections. This is also the reason why one should have passed the tenth a lot earlier. Even the cat who came into the examination hall to catch a lizard managed to get out with full A+. What is wrong with the humans these days?

Vampire Bat: Well, things could get much worse with humans and their politics. It is actually nice that we have our own realm here. And what is that smell? Is it from the graveyard which is below the house or is the smell from the house itself? There is belief that there are souls trapped inside the walls of this castle house.

Vampire Hamster: I had discovered the source very early, but forgot that exactly fifty four seconds ago, sir. I even recorded my loss of memory on my new tablet phone. Can we take a selfie right now? I haven’t updated my Facebook profile picture for the last five years or so.

Vampire Bat: Who put him on duty here? Where is the Vampire Crocodile? And the Vampire Alligator? He is supposed to be in charge of the internal duties. This is not the place for him.

Vampire Owl: I think that everyone is on leave due to the after-effects of the grand party. The program was too huge, and vampires are not known to be people of parties. You don’t even want to know what the Vampire Penguin has been doing.

Vampire Bat: No, I don’t want to know that at all. But we have to find where that foul smell is coming from. Our life depends on it. What if Uncle Dracula gets that smell and faints? We don’t even have an adult heir to the throne yet. We immediately need to go from #SmellyToSmiley.

Vampire Hamster: There was a party? Did I miss a blood bath? I am going to sue my phone – there was supposed to be a reminder there.

Vampire Owl: I am more worried about making this place better for the vampire elders. It is a mess. They are not going to like this at all.

Vampire Bat: Is that smell from the kitchen? It is not good.

Vampire Owl: I think that it is from the bathroom, or the bedroom attached with the bathroom.

Vampire Bat: It is from that fish which the Vampire Cat had brought here and left without finishing. How many times do I have to tell him? He has to think about the good of the whole vampire community instead of being so selfish.

Vampire Owl: I don’t think that it was ever part of his plan.

Vampire Hamster: I have sprayed Ambi Pur everywhere, sir. I even got rid of the garbage as the trash van had arrived.

Vampire Owl: I don’t believe this. He is not supposed to have done things correctly. Something is not right here.

Vampire Bat: Are you sure you did what was needed and not something else which puts us directly into trouble? I have my doubts.

Vampire Hamster: I don’t even remember the thing called trouble; I don’t know the meaning, sir.

Vampire Owl: See! The memory problem is working positively. He is a strong fighter against odour. We should officially give him some title related to his special skills. What about the Defender of the Fragrance Reloaded?

Vampire Bat: That was not really the role in which I expected him. Is it truly you or the Vampire Panda in disguise?

Vampire Hamster: Ambi Pur worked like a dream, sir. It was easy to get rid of the odour. I even remember that name this time. It has easily gone #SmellyToSmiley.

Vampire Bat: Yes, this is getting better. You knew that he could do better, didn’t you, Mr. Owl? Wait! What is the cricket bat for? I thought you hated cricket. You even led a movement against Cricket World Cup and fought to get it banned in the New Vampire World, and it was even somewhat successful.

Vampire Owl: This is for the Vampire Cat. I am going to deal with his fishy love with the fish. I have to make use of this bat in one way or the other. After all, vampires don’t play cricket any more, not with the new rules for sure.

Vampire Hamster: All Hail the Lord Potato!

Vampire Owl: What? No! Here goes the improvement, all the way down the abyss. Not a good sign for substitute guards and caretakers.

Vampire Hamster: All Hail the Lord Protractor!

Vampire Bat: Never mind. Nothing has been said, and there is nothing to be done. At least we got the Ambi Pur with us and it did work so well. And the foul smell has disappeared, and it was what mattered the most. Just get rid of the incense sticks and flowers. They were never really suiting the castle house architecture.

Odours of the House

A house has many odours. If you take a list of all kinds of smell which you come against, it can go on and on with no end. If you ask me about my favourite fragrance, it would be related to tea. A few of my friends had given me that kind of tea which I could smell and feel; one from Kenya and Tanzania; the other from Assam and the Middle East. My cousin had earlier provided me with Yorkshire tea which had that beautiful aroma which I still miss.

Tea has always been my favourite fragrance at home. The kitchen has been also a source of the best smell for a long time, despite us eating from outside quite a lot. Mostly, they have been the ones which cannot be defeated, and you just have to fall into the pit of temptation to eat your favourite dish. Simona the Kitty knows that better as she knows which house in the locality has fish, beef or chicken. We are mostly vegetarian and buy separate food for her, but she knows the houses where fish is prepared and stares at that direction.

Talking about Simona the Kitty or the most valiant one, she is the one who knows what everybody is cooking! You can fool many people, but not her with the smell and the hearing ability as she listens to each footstep and knows each and every odour around. If I could ask someone about the odours of home, it would be her, but she is not interested in sharing the skills of her nose with the inferior humans, and so I have to deal with this, at least until she changes her decision.

ambipur-

Still in other cases, there is the bad smell which competes with the good ones. The former gives us that big challenge which we have to overcome. Often, it is not an easy task. Simona the Kitty used to do something that she should have done outside in the soil, inside the home occasionally. But with more time spent outside, and as we kept her there for a longer time, that problem was solved forever, and she has turned into the extra smart kitten.

The smell of fish has been the biggest challenge, and even when not having fish ourselves, the odour of the special fish food gravy bought for Simona the Kitty has been pretty bad. Thank God for the facility provided by Municipality for the waste disposal, it has been mostly solved. Our garden does have some flowers to help with the problem, but it is still an “upcoming garden” with not enough to deal with the same – still, we adjust with what we have.

We also have the air freshener to deal with the same and hope that the fragrance stays. We haven’t had many visitors in the last few months, but when they do, there is the need to keep them away from any possible bad odour. We have that bad feeling about smell when we visit some houses, and lets not have the others to feel the same about our home – it is surely not a proud thing.

When it is a wonderful day and something smells dreadful, the day is not that thing of wonder any more. When the house looks clean and awesome and still the bad odour stays, home is not that good as you expect it to be. For this, there is the need for the #SmellytoSmiley effect with the Ambi Pur Air Effects. The monsoon season has started, even though it doesn’t look that convincing the amount of rain received. Lets just make sure that nothing wet makes it smell bad!

What Lady Death is Cooking

Vampire Alligator: I am actually very surprised that we haven’t found the Vampire Owl for quite some time. He was there for the Mad Max: Fury Road review with you, but haven’t seen him after that. I was wondering about his absence and so were the rest of the members of the Vampire Team. Vampire Crocodile even came to the conclusion that he was dead. Did he contact you or Uncle Dracula?

Vampire Bat: Yes, it is a long story, rather too long to write down as one blog post.

Vampire Alligator: Okay, just remove those parts where you talk about those philosophical things and come up with the rest. It will be so short then, and you can even add a few other things to exaggerate the tale.

Vampire Bat: There is this one-sided love story between the Vampire Owl and Lady Death.

Vampire Alligator: One side? Like Lady Death loved him and he didn’t want to die?

Vampire Bat: No, its the other way around. He was looking for Lady Death. He was even digging the graveyard to find a shortcut to reach her.

Vampire Alligator: Oh, yes. I even heard that rumour that you were searching for Lady Death’s evil twin sister.

Vampire Bat: That is rather different. She is educated outside the realms of death, and won’t inherit the realm. Even in the absence of a husband or an heir, it will only pass on to her prodigal brother who has recently returned from the world tour. It means that she will be free.

Vampire Alligator: Still you don’t know her name yet. Oh forget that! Tell more about the missing Vampire Owl instead.

Vampire Bat: You can call a rose by any name, my dear apprentice. So better you forget that part. About the Vampire Owl, my secret sources say that he finally met Lady Death at the bottom of the Bottomless Sea.

Vampire Alligator: How can he go to the bottom of a sea which has no bottom?

Vampire Bat: That is just the name. You know that we vampires always hated sea. Every sea actually has a bottom except when there is a portal open there, but we will know about that if such an incident occurs.

Vampire Alligator: So, he met her and is ruling the Realm of Death with Lady Death?

Vampire Bat: No, according to the Dark Elf News Channel, he fainted when he got the smell of death from Lady Death, and is now at the Great Elf Mountains Healthcare Centre – they say that he is not ready to leave even after they have discharged him and offered free treatment for one full vampire year.

Vampire Alligator: Is the odour problem that bad? I thought that the vampire situation was rather better.

Vampire Bat: Yes, people have all kinds of perfumes and scents these days, and so everyone is expecting the other person to smell better. It is more like a necessity these days. This is why there is no more official vampire smell.

Vampire Alligator: So Uncle Dracula doesn’t smell like a vampire?

Vampire Bat: Absolutely not. These days, everyone wants to smell better, and they use the best of perfumes even if they are just going to sleep after taking a shower. It just comes naturally to them as part of their daily routine. Everyone takes care of the smell. Even the first impressions are made from the sense of smell. It doesn’t matter how good you are if you smell unpleasant, as the society these days tend to go towards better smelling people.

Vampire Alligator: What about those people who smell terrible from the soul?

Vampire Bat: Yes, such people are there too. They smell terrible inside and pretend to be fair – along with all these getting better, there is no solution to those people who are terrible at heart. But we can work with what we can manage, and smell is something that we can make better.

Vampire Alligator: Evil always finds one way or the other. Let’s at least hope to make the smell feel better.

Vampire Bat: That is the point. Let’s hope that at least the smell gets better if not the minds of men.

Vampire Alligator: Let’s take this further when the Vampire Owl returns to us whenever he decides to.

Vampire Bat: Yes, people need to know!

Vampire Alligator: I am actually going to put this on Facebook and Twitter!

*Just a short story explaining the disappearance of the Vampire Owl even though I was not short-listed for a particular activity 😀
