Shrike gave us some great information about Mr. Lies Halloween plans. Mr. Lies was indeed going to have a big bash on Halloween night and he had imported some special blood wine for the occasion. It was currently stored in the cellar of his castle in a special area to remain cool until then. I nearly clapped my hands when I found out, but instead started planning the raid. It was going to take a few more people than I had hoped. The thing is one barrel of my Blood Moon Wine could make about ten barrels of Mr. Lies Blood Wine into the Cure. Mr. Lies had ordered and received fifty barrels of Blood Wine and that meant five Barrels of my Blood Moon Wine. There was no way a raiding party of four was going to make it work. I would need at least six more people.
There was also the manner of gain entry to Mr. Lies castle without him knowing and getting back out again without him knowing. There could be no fowl ups or the whole surprise would be lost. I wanted to catch him by surprise like a half-dressed woman when some guy ‘mistakenly’ enters her room. I had only one idea and it was risky as hell.
There were constant deliveries of well ‘chattel’ to the castle. Basically human beings that were sent to the castle to feed upon. I mean warm blood was better than cold to a vampire unless it was Blood Wine. The castle needed a steady supply of victims and with Halloween coming their would be even more for the party. I could disguise myself as a delivery driver with chattel and my five casks of Blood Moon Wine disguised as Blood Wine and maybe I could get in. The problem was that chattel are always transported in a drugged state and are stripped of all their possessions including clothes. This would be a truly naked raid.
That’s when Colonel Gin had a great idea. We would use ten barrels instead and put a divider so only the top half would be full of wine and the bottom half would be full of the ‘chattels’ equipment. They would be chained up but not drugged. The cover story would be that Mr. Lies wanted to have them unload the wine so they would be fully chained and gagged instead. Once inside they could be released, get their equipment and then head out to do the deed. Once done we could just ride out like it was an empty truck.
That would mean I would need ten volunteers who would be willing to strip down to their skin and be basically chained together and gagged until we got into the cellar and then I could release them. Once the deed was done we would be fine to just re-board the truck and leave. These volunteers would be very vulnerable until we got inside. I put out the call and Oni Kim, Miss Wine, Scotch, Margareta, Jade Slade, Brandy, Colonel Gin, Campeche, Professor Bourbon and my own Tequila volunteered. Lots of girls and only three guys. The barrels though were half weight and so each person could handle one. I even made a device that could pump out the Blood Wine and then pump in the Blood Moon Wine very quickly.
We found a delivery truck that would hold all of us and the ten barrels. Using some long chains we devised scheme where people could be chained with two lengths of chain on each side. Five people would be sitting on benches on each side. One length of chain would hold their ankles down to the bottom of the bench. The second chain would be above their head to hold their arms above their head. We found ten ball gags and we were in business.
We communicated our plan to Shrike and she said it was a good one and sent us ten loincloths and ten collars. According to Shrike this would work also long as we made sure the people also had the loincloths and the collars. The loincloths did not cover the backside of course just a small cloth in between the legs to hide things but they also had to be black with Mr. Lies symbol to make that they were ‘His’. That and the collars with his name on them would complete the disguise. They would have to be on everyone or it wouldn’t work.
Once we had everything, we loaded the wine barrels with each persons clothes and equipment. We put in the false bottoms and then filled the top half with my Blood Moon Wine. We loaded them all to the front end of the truck and then we loaded my ten volunteers. Stripped to their skin each with a collar and a loincloth in place. We put on the manacles and cuffs and then open by one slid them onto the chains five on each side. Once they were all thus secured I put ball gags on all of them and snapped the lock behind their head. All ten of them made a fine-looking naked group. Luckily all of us had been together and the beach party in July so we had already seen everything each person had. No surprises for us.
I got into the driver’s seat and drove out the arsenal warehouse. I took the most direct route out Mr. Lies manor. Once I crossed the bridge to the other side of town I knew I was in the bad lands. I kept my wits about me and trusted my disguise. I had disguised myself with a beard and mustache and had darkened my skin. I also had changed my eye color with some contacts. I found a delivery driver’s jumpsuit and old soiled ball cap. I looked very different and I had even put some padding in my cheeks to make my look more like a chipmunk. I drove to the backside of Mr. Lies manor. I had all my paper work ready by the time I reached the back gate. There were two vampire guards dressed in business suits, one on each side of the gate. The one on my side held up his hand to make me stop.
“What’s your business?”
“Delivery for the manor. Blood Wine and a few Party Favors”, I winked at the guard.
“Party favors, huh? Get out and open the back.”
I complied by unlocking the back doors and throwing them open. There were my ten naked people and my barrels at the front the truck. The guard hopped up and walked down the middle of the truck looking side to side. He stopped near the barrels and inspected them closely.
“Why aren’t these chattel drugged?”
“They are supposed to unload the Blood Wine, then off to the pens. Don’t want to wait for them to wake up, I have other deliveries to make.”
The vampire guard nodded and then he stopped in front of Jade Slade.
“Now, you are a cutie.”
He ran his hand down from her neck to the nipple of her left breast. He pinched it between his thumb and forefinger and pulled. I saw Jade grimace and she looked at him defiantly. He released her nipple after a few second and then he pulled his hand away.
“Lots of spirit too. I am sure Mr. Lies will enjoy breaking her.”
He laughed and I laughed with him and then he hopped off the truck. He waved at the other guard to open the gate.
“Are you accepting the delivery? If so, I need you to sign the paperwork.”
I shut the doors of the back of the truck and then had the guard sign my false paperwork after getting back in the driver seat. He waved me through and I took off into the back deliver area of the manor. I drove down the sloped ramp that lead to the cellar and cells of the dungeon. We were in.
