Hotel Lenore was set to open at the end of the week. Janette had closed up her home in Paris, and officially made the move to London. She'd spent a night and two days, when not sleeping, unpacking and putting the final touches on the suite that would be her home for the next twenty years or more.

It was time, she decided to make herself part of the London community. Others might disagree, or not consider the issue at all, but for Janette, that meant introducing herself to the sheriff. If he'd been in the position before she began work on the hotel, this meeting would have happened then, but he was only recently appointed, so she'd waited until her move was complete.

She chose her dress carefully, aware it was probably better suited to the other main vampire bar in the city than to Blood Diamond, which seemed on the face of things similar to The Raven she'd left in Toronto. But this was also a meeting between sheriff and former sheriff, and she wanted to make an impression. Her hair hung in loose black waves just past her shoulders, and her vampire-pale skin and large blue eyes were made even more dramatic with smoky eyeshadow and blood red lipstick.

Every vampire club Janette had ever frequented had their own rules and customs, and as she entered Blood Diamond, she took in as much as she could with a businesswoman's eye. She asked the bartender for recommendations for 'something red,' and after a brief conversation of burgundies and bordeaux and a zinfandel from California, she ordered a glass of a burgundy she knew Patrick enjoyed, mostly for appearance's sake. She gave the bartender a smile and a generous tip, then pulled a card from her purse and held it out. On the front Hotel Lenore was printed in embossed red letters, and on the back, in her elegant script, simply Janette. "Would you please invite Mr. Northman to join me for a moment, and perhaps a drink. At his convenience, of course."

"Have a good night, Janette," Eric replied with a nod, and watched her thoughtfully as she walked away.
