The wedding of Lady Bella de la Bones and Baron Von Roach-child was a most spectacular event held at the family castle in Transkullvania. Some say it may have been the wedding of the century.
After their whirlwind courtship and wedding, the newlyweds are eager for a bit of quiet time. They have slipped away to Lady Bella’s country estate. Deep in the Ratskills, Ghoulton Abbey is surrounded by moss draped trees and is guarded by a well trained Squadron of Bats.Grimsonmum, Lady Bella de la Bones’ butler, and his team arrived at Ghoulton Abbey ahead of Lady Bella de la Bones and her dashing new husband. There was much to do to prepare for the newlyweds. Dear old Ratty, the head gardener (and camera shy), whipped his crew into action. The spiders spun massive webs ~ ensuring a good supply of creepy crawlies for Mrs. Cook’s ghoulash, scumbo, and other specialties of the house. Only the best for Lady Bella de la Bones and Baron Von Roach-Child.Mrs. Cook, excited to be back in the Ghoulton Abbey kitchen, prepared a traditional pot of ghoulash over entrails ~ a comforting dish on a brutally wet night.Unfortunately her sous chef had taken ill. A recently hired scullery maid was called in.I fear that was a huge mistake. Bootina looked away while her twin slipped into the kitchen and grabbed Mrs. Cook’s special pot of seasonings. Her most carefully guarded cookie recipe is rumored to be kept deep in that pot. I doubt the thieves know that it is no longer there. The Komtesse de Killmore has promised the rascals big money to steal the recipe? she is definitely going to be furious that they failed to secure it!Each year on October 31, Bella invites the villagers to an open house at the Abbey. This year everyone was just dying to meet her new husband. Did I say he was dashing? And debonair? Oh MY!Arriving late in the midst of a torrential down pour, the couple was travel weary but they graciously greeted each and every guest. All afternoon and into the evening friends and neighbors stopped by to offer their best wishes. Grimsonmum kept a watchful eye as did the couple’s personal guard bats.As the evening drew to a close, Lady Bella de la Bones bid farewell to the lingering guests. “Until next year, RIP.” She and her husband made ready to retire. “Darling, just wait until you taste one of Mrs. Cook’s bedtime cookies~ warm from the oven with a glass of cold Vampire Milk. It will knock your socks off!” Without a doubt it’s the little things,Y’all! Hugs!
