or, The Hired Help Gets Time To Shine
Walter: Code name: “Angel of Death.” I have fought in the most dangerous wars humanity has ever waged. I have done battle against the armies of the undead. So if you think you have any chance of surviving now that I have turned my eyes on you… I’m afraid your hopes are sadly misplaced.
Walter: And that’s the last of the spiders! Narration: I’m Walter C. Dornez, retainer to the Van Helsing family. I don’t like cobwebs, or dust bunnies. Walter: A job well done. [SLAM] Ah! Integra’s home! Narration: What I do like: Cleaing, cooking, tea (and crumpets, but mostly tea), dogs, floss…and her. Integra Wingates Van Helsing,… Continue reading Bonus Act Page 2
