The night was beautifully filled with bright stars, not a cloud in sight. Even the heavens must of known the Queen would travel to Umbra for this great gathering. Our friend Jonas Callahan had dutifully written his speech and with the assistance of Marius had finished it. He didn’t want it to be too obvious that he was now one of our kind, so Marius helped him adjust his words.
I had spoken myself the eve’ before with Capt. Erikkson in regards to any additional security that may be needed, as our coven is closely tied to Umbra and service as its protectorate. He assured me no additional presence would be needed, so most of our coven opted to forgo the event entirely, leaving only myself and a few other Kindred in attendance. Marius was actually excited to have such an even within the walls of Umbra. Of course, we all know how cultured he is and this was just the opportunity he had wanted to dust off his favorite tuxedo and of course have me on his arm. To escort me to a ball or gala was his favorite mortal pass time.
