The Caretaker

A young man, named Simon, swamped in dept and owing big to a gang is desperate for quick, large cash. luck would find him one day in a news paper ad offering the high pay he needs.

"caretaker wanted for house of often away owner. $10,000 a month."

Simon, desperate, had accepted the job meeting the strange owner with even stranger rules. finding out after arriving that the owner has "exotic pets" requiring special care. Simon will soon learn that the owner didn't mean lizards or snakes and that he should have rethought the news ads fine print.

Look on the bright side, at least there was plenty of booze for Rick to drink once he reverted to human form in the morning. Anyone would need it after waking up to a horror show in a bar and being covered in other people's blood.

And is Samuel immortal as well? Or did Rick just roam alone for two centuries until he was found? I can't wait to find out what he says to Rick to convince him to live and work in his mansion. ^_^

@silver_huskey:
it can be quite psychologically damaging being alone all the time. and with any friends you make you wake up to covered in there blood.

That's rough. Poor Rick. Must be hard to not make friends for a VERY LONG time (if ever) for fear of killing them during the full moon. :(

By the way, I love the shadowy style these flashbacks are being told in. The blacks really pop against the colors.

Come for the gold, stay for the werewolf curse!

I'm looking forward to this flashback. :)

Yes! I had a feeling Rick was a werewolf! Though I expected him to be more sinister and less helpful. Eh, maybe he mellowed with age, being immortal and all.

Though I'm not surprised to see him working for Samuel. In fact, Rick fits right in. I'm sure being a werewolf helps him fends off some of the stranger things in the yard at night-- at least during a full moon.

This dude is old! And kind of a dick. Being a werewolf is some pretty important information you wouldn't want to omit. But he was really helpful to Simon so we'll let it slide this time.

I agree with Gaming. Take as much time as needed. But when the semester is over, get back to work! LOL. I kid, I kid.

@TheCrazyPawniardLady:

well its kinda like he should get back to work, but once Simon starts asking questions he knows hes gonna be there a while answering all sorts of questions because this has been done before with so many other caretakers.
