Daily Prompt: compose

From Protector of the Grey House:

Vincent glared and allowed Joseph to leave. Rebecca looked him in the eye one last time, nodded and left as well. Vincent took a moment to compose himself and left the study. Outside the door stood Anthony.

“When he joined, did you remove traces of his life?”

“Don’t I always?”

Vincent raised an eyebrow.

Anthony gave him a steady look, then added, “We know where more are, if needed.”

Vincent shook his head. “Not yet. We may not stay in the area long enough to need more. Rebecca and Charlie are enough, for the moment.”

Anthony nodded and the men moved toward the library. A human stood outside the closed doors. Vincent frowned. “Yes?”

“Sir, one of your guests from last night stayed up all day and drank from as many of us as possible. He took more than he should have from all of us.”

“Where is he now?”

“In his room.”

Vincent nodded. “Were his actions recorded?”

“Yes, sir.”

“Tell Mierka to kill him.”

The human nodded and walked away. Vincent turned to Anthony and raised an eyebrow at the look on the younger vampire’s face.

“You didn’t ask the vampire’s name.”

Vincent turned his head, walked to the double doors and placed his hands on the knobs. “If that were important, the human would have said his name.”
