The following Tidbit is from Castle Necros, the sixteenth installment in the Carnal Invasion series. Castle Necros is due for publication on Halloween 2019.
In this Tidbit, Lucifer has been inadvertently summoned to Castle Necros by Lleu Redgrave, a strikingly naive Irish vampire.
“My good fellow, you are a very young soul in a very old body,” Lucifer demurred. “I would not subject you to the Enchanters of Lwiqsyz for all of the wisdom of Heaven and Hell. However, as I am in a generous frame of mind, I will gladly attend your sister’s wedding with you.”
“Begging your pardon, Your Infernal Glory, but my sister has been dead for centuries,” the startled Lleu revealed. “Mate, where did you get the idea that I was summoning a demon to go to my long-dead sister’s wedding with me?”
“Why, that was the foremost thing in your mind, my good fellow. A dreadful worry about not being able to find anyone to accompany you to your sister’s wedding, and her bestowing upon you a most contentious tongue-lashing about being a neer-do-well and a drunkard.”
“My sister was a soulless social climber with a caustic wit and a razor tongue,” Lleu sighed. “It does not surprise me that her demands that I find a companion to bring with me to her wedding lest I shame my questionable family still prey upon my unfortunate mind. I deeply apologize to you, Your Infernal Majesty.”
“It is no trouble at all, my dear boy. Perhaps by revealing this boil on your psyche, you will be free to heal from it.”
