I wouldn't say that it was a matter of "enjoyment" at all.  Sethra 
may have ways to pass the time, of course, but I would have said that 
Kiera is able to do things and go places that Sethra Lavode can't, 
and doesn't, and that is the reason for Kiera's existence.

Now, Kiera's interest in Vlad is interesting, but I don't think we 
have any evidence of a reason for it at all, just some suppositions 
based on other things we have learned about Vlad.
