Unearth the Undead.
If we let him go, maybe he’ll take to scaring away the sparkly ones. #TeamRoddy
Or at least tying their shoelaces together while they’re busy preening.
If he’s going after the sparkly vampires, I’m all on his side! Who would have thought we would ever find someone more detestable than Roddy, and yet sparkly vampires are even worse.
Actually, dear Godfrey, if we let him in, he’d still be free to prey on the countryside after he’s done with us.
Godfrey: “Ah, I see sir. Still shall we invite him inside?”
No. I don’t like that giant, two legged rodent. Too bad we don’t have industrial super-strength pesticide to use on it.
Godfrey: “Very good, sir.”
Once they let him in they can activate the drill, then while he is busy draining the life of the crew, the drill buries itself 100 miles underground, stranding him there. Sure, it will cost the lives of everyone on board, but a small price to pay to save England from Count Rodula!
But, haven’t you heard. Vampires sleep underground in coffins. They will slowly, but surely tunnel their way back up to the surface! And they will be much, much nastier than when the drill dragged him down.
Unless the drill hits a convenient magma pocket and Rodula dies a screaming, burning death.
Sure, they can tunnel through a few feet of loose earth from a coffin, but through 100 miles of granite with his hands? Now, maybe a vampire, with his long lifespan, could tunnel that much with a good set of tools, but he seems to be missing one toolbox’s worth of tools right now. Ooops!
Option A, of course! As in: Every man to himself – and the countryside for others…
This is why you make doors like that open OUT with a wide arc so when you do open the door as they ask they get sent off the walk way where there is no railing to stop such a event.
I would suspect that the door would have been made to open inward for just that reason: the majority of potential entrants would be of the non-vampire type and for safety sake you would want to avoid knocking them to their death.
If it is a vampire, you can always just stab it in the heart with some handy wooden implement from your trusty toolbox – if you had such a thing at hand.
So *that’s* why Roddy burned the toolbox! He knew this day would come!
Roddy is devious, he thinks ahead – he knew what would be at stake.
