Carl’s museum tour

Here is a snippet from Talk Of The Town–Carl is showing Craig a portrait that has special significance–

“Lorenzo DeMedici–Lorenzo The Magnificent.”  Carl studied the portrait, even though he could close his eyes and call up the image.  “A name well deserved. He was responsible for many advances in culture and he encouraged the sciences in research.”  He turned to Craig.  “Look at that older man with the scroll next to Lorenzo, the man in physician’s robes, and his assistant standing next to him, holding his teacher’s scrolls and instruments.”  Craig took a closer look.

“That assistant was me.”

Craig’s eyes widened, and he looked at Carl, then back at the painting.  He saw the set of the jaw line, the curly hair.  It was medieval, stylized, but–it was Carl.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 Lorenzo offered to pay for the rest of Carl’s education if he would commit to being one of his personal physicians , so he sailed off to London for study–where he was turned in the library at Oxford 😦

    1. Thank you, that’s what I was aiming for 🙂 This painting serves as one of Carl’s ties to humanity, since it was one of his last actions before he was turned in Oxford 🙂

  6. Oh, I’m sorry, Ed–Carl is a 600 year old vampire :)I do love my nightwalkers; Lorenzo De Medici sent him to school in England, which is where he was turned 🙂
