Somewhere It's Always Time for Tea
An A-, dear Alice.

Oh, that’s terribly kind of you. Thank you so much!

Now, see here, couldn’t we discuss this like civilized beings?” Alexia, ever one for form and courtesy, was in favor of negotiations whenever possible.
None of the vampires responded to her request.
Alexia thought this dreadfully boorish. The least they could do was answer with a “No, killing is all we are interested in at the moment, but thank you kindly for the offer all the same.” Alexia had, in part, compensated for a lack of soul through the liberal application of manners. This was rather like donning an outfit consisting entirely of accessories, but Alexia maintained that proper conduct was never a bad thing. These vampires were behaving most improperly.

So far this is my favorite passage in her books.

SOBS LOUDLY ALICE IS SO LOVELY)) Oooh! Splendid idea! Let's go today! I needed sunny vests to show off my merry disposition to welcome in the new season!"

Ooh, I’d very much like to pick up a few nice dresses and pinafores for myself and the little one. And I need to restock my baking supplies! The holiday season ran me positively ragged.

Oh, I am terribly excited! I’ll go and fetch my strolling boots and a parasol. Is Lizzie allowed along with us? She’s a very good girl, and I am sure she’ll feel the need to supervise my choices in wardrobe for her.

"Oh of course she can come! Wot kind of bloke would I be to say no to your own daughter! Plus it would be lovely to see the sorts of things she picks out for you!" He laughs. "You go get her and yourself ready, I’ll bring my car about to pick you two up!"

"Smashing!" She chirped, clasping her hands together. "I’ll go and get her ready, then! See you soon, dearie!"

Oswald nodded eagerly with a happy ‘I’ll be right back!’ as he let Alice and Lizzie prepare for the outing. He made sure to get dressed himself, of course, and sighing at the sight of half of his wardrobe covered in blood. He really had to stop wearing his own clothing instead of his uniform when it came to surgeries. He also quietly mulled over the possibility of buying a bow tie with an eyeball on it. 

After getting dressed in civilian clothing, he quickly jumped into his corvette and drove over to Alice’s home, giving a playful honk before hopping out of the vehicle and going to the door. “Alice! I’m here!”

After several minutes of fussing and perfecting Lizzie’s outerwear, Alice bustled through her front door in a burgundy walking dress with half sleeves and a matching parasol, little Lizzie toddling behind in an equally precious purple jumper, a little black blouse, and a bonnet that was secured with a snug ribbon just beneath her chin. Of course, mama and baby both donned matching striped stockings as they trotted down the front stairs.

"Here we are! I do hope you weren’t kept waiting for too long; Lizzie sometimes throws a fit whilst being fitted with her bonnets."

"Oh don’t you worry even a bit, Alice! You two look lovely! Oh goodness, you’re such a sweet little thing too, Lizzie!" Oswald cooed as he escorted the two to his car. "You’re so very grown up too! I hope my car is suitable to your standards, Lizzie!"

"Well, thank you very much, Oswald! Lizzie, do say hello to Uncle Oswald," She instructed the little girl, who in turn performed a clumsy little curtsey.

"Hello, Uncle Oswald. Mumsy says that you’re very nice, and that we’re going to get dresses with you, so I like you already. And your car is pretty, too!" Lizzie went on rambling to him excitedly (mostly about his bow tie) as she was seated in his automobile.
