Diana having freed her minion from the clutches of some sort of possession by fey, she has her minion stay the night, as she herself plays Halo where she is god while awaiting her aunt’s return with answers. After about two in the morning when her aunt messaged her saying that it will take some more time to find out answers, she beats some random n00bs that think they’re all that, puts on a night mask and goes to bed for her “beauty sleep”.
In the morning she hears someone, most likely her minion, in the next room trip and fall out of bed. Ignoring this she continues to sleep. Not being a morning person she sleeps in until 12:31pm, where she gets up, cleans off her face, dresses carefully for the day and looks as if she’s been up for hours. She’s become so well versed in beautification she can look "perfect in 30 minutes or less. This morning she was on a roll at 15 minutes. She then heads to the dining hall to break her fast. At her place of honor, she sits and finds a neatly folded not upon her plate, picking it up she questions the whereabouts of her newspaper and reads the note. The note is from her aunt saying she’ll be sleeping for a while, and perhaps may sleep until the next day. She looks curiously at the note in a daze as she atomically grabs the newspaper. She breaks from her reverie once her meal is placed before her, a lovely breakfast consisting of fruit, cottage cheese, and bacon.
She has the head butler sent in and questions him on the matter of her aunt and the unusual matter of her being exhausted. Finding she over exerted herself, she questions further, and the butler knows nothing more. Questioning to see whether or not if she could visit the butler seems unsure. Giving him the order to send for her once her aunt awakens she delves into her newspaper seeing if there is anything of interest.
She runs across a blurb about homeless men being arrested about rantings of the end of the world and harassing/“attacking” pedestrians within reach, as well as one local college professor. They all seemed to rant almost identically about the end of the world and time coming to a stop. The professor was sent to an asylum to be evaluated. The identity of the professor was withheld to protect the family and college of the professor. She finds that the article was written by a Billy Drago with the London Times.
She sends for her minion and tells her chaufer to prepare the car, they have some investigating to do, she has her butler get the location of Mr. Drago as she prepares traveling clothes. She dresses up in what she deems is a fashionable “Sherlock Holmes”-esk look. Irritated with her minions sudden leave of absence she has her maid put the fashionable “Watson”-esk clothes in the limousine and directs the chaufer, after obtaing Mr. Drago’s location, to take her to minion’s home.
Upon arrival she has the chaufer knock on the door to fetch said minion with the Watson package. After he knocks, the door cracks open a smidge, then immediately slams closed. Irritated she will have her chaufer be more forceful with the fetching. Seeing the man fail miserably, she gets out and pounds angrily upon the door.
“Go away!” says minion. Questioning as to why and what is minion’s problem, she yells through the door, “What do you think you are doing Amelia? We have investigating to do!!! I even have a cute outfit for you!!! Now open this damn door, or I shall have to have it opened by force!!!”
Minion goes on to say things about not wanting to be the subject of magic again, she can’t remember a thing. Exasperated, Diana explains that she was possessed and she exorcised the sprite and that is why she doesn’t remember. And then minion said something about it may be Diana’s doing and Diana said it was because minion was weak willed. Minion said she was not weak willed, then was threatened by Diana with a curse upon her and her family for generations if she does not open that door by the count of 3!!! At 2 1/2 the door was slowly opened, Diana takes the package and hands it over to minion to put on with only a little bit of a fuss from minion, while she herself waits in the “parlor” (living room). After her minion is ready they head out to look for Mr. Drago and she gives minion the clipping to read over.
The limo pulls up in front of shabby townhouses, disgusted by the appearance she questions as to whether this is the accurate address… Finding that it is indeed accurate she tells her chaufer to wait there and lock the doors as she and her minion head out to see Mr. Drago.
At the door she grabs her bubble piper, knocks on the door with it and proceeds to “smoke” it. Seeing an unsavory fellow answer the door after much crashing, she convinces him of her wealth and promises him compensation for answers but only within his home. She pulls out and puts up a “sound proof” charm in his home while she’s there. She hands minion a lint roller to clean off the area that she was offered to sit, minion chooses to stand.
She began questioning the reasons behind writing the article, where she found problems with what he had said. She delves for information of the professor using money and threats as her way to get the information. She tries to alleviate the man’s irritation with her, by expressing her own foul mood muddling things up.
She notices out of the corner of her eye minion glaring at her, confused at the look she tries to think of the cause, but gets distracted by the matter at hand.
She notices that “Billy Drago” is acting quite strange, when she asks for the first name to be “Billy” or “William” he says “William” and mutters “probably”, she catches onto that probably and questions it, he then ‘continues’ with “would probably be best to be formal”.
The newspapers in the room seemingly are only 5 years old or newer. Minion is acting strange, “knowing” things she would not otherwise “know”. She tries to call her out by calling her “Lily”, but minion catches onto it. Yet, by not being happy about it, she is being extra suspicious.
After dropping minion off, Diana notices her giving her a confused look, ignoring that she turns back to her guest and continues their business. After notarizing the contract, and giving a check of 100,000 pounds, she “sound proofs” the back of the limo and confirms its security.
She discovers that the professor is Micheal Pemrose… possibly related to a Lilian Pemrose… His brother is Alfred Pemrose, maybe… Micheal was taken to southern heights sanitarium. After dropping off her contact her phone rings, her aunts awake.
She heads home before continuing in her search. Her aunt appears spiritually drained. There appears to be danger for a witch in the America’s, possibly her sister. She finds out that her minion may have been possessed for years, longer than she’s known her even. She regrets exorcising her at this point. Minion may have lost many many memories. Diana may just have to “re-train” minion. She informs her aunt of her observations through out the day and of her search. She is directed to go back to her minion to try and win her back and question her on her own grounds about her possible uncle. She gets chastised about her new pet and asked to have food sent up on her way down. As she heads back to her chaufer she informs Jeeves of her aunt’s desire.
