Daily Prompt: Tie

From Inside the Grey House:

“It arrived today.”

Vincent stared at the invitation, trying not to show any emotion. “He hasn’t had a Red Tie Affair since before Christopher left. This is dangerous.”

“You don’t think it means Christopher is coming back?”

The agitated vampire shook his head. “No.” He paused in thought. “Edwin enjoys pretending to be Captain because it means no one can touch him, but he’s been Acting Captain for almost five years. I have to wonder how long a vampire like him can stand only being the Acting Captain. There are limits to what he can do. There are still too many in the Bay Area who won’t listen to him. It may be that he wants to show his power, show that he has power. We need to be there.”
