The Citadel has been graced with a rather ethereal and mysterious presence of late who goes by the name of Candace L Bowser. She is at once, incredibly urbane and charming, but also possesses an aura of the Otherworld that I have not sensed for quite some time - not since the episode with the werewolf in Old Man Wenceslas' garden shed.
I also have the nagging feeling that she might be secretly working for Vlad Dracula so I have sent Boris, my chief spy, to keep an eye on her. However, I think her trail may have gone cold somewhere in the Forest of Confusion.
Before Candace disappeared in a puff of fragrant smoke, she took the time to answer my questions.
ML: I am hoping Ruby does not see this one. She has already cost me a fortune over the centuries.
