"Admittedly possible, but since I didn't show any super psychopathic tendencies before I became a vampire, and then I did, we should probably keep watch over you anyway, hm?"

Permalink

"You'd already killed a bunch of people when you'd been a vampire this long. And I didn't know you before you were a vampire, maybe you were annoying and psychopathic and bossy then too."

Permalink

"I also didn't have me watching over me to make sure I didn't kill a bunch of people. And from what I hear you tried to kill the guy in the hospital but Matt managed to stop you, so, you can hardly sit on your high-horse for intent."

Permalink

"Oh, come off it, not like you've been dragging me off people left and right, it was one guy and I'd've probably stopped on my own anyhow. And I still haven't killed anybody."

Permalink

"And I stopped despite nobody actually being strong enough to stop me, and having no vampires around to tell me it was bad, and having killed a few people already and therefore knowing I was in the wrong, so I succeeded at actually bringing myself back from being terrible, okay?"

Permalink

"Yeah, and if you'd been wrestling me off people every time I turned around maybe you'd get points for that. Congratu-freaking-lations for figuring out killing people was bad after the first few."

Permalink

"You know what? Fine, whatever, have fun killing whoever the fuck you want, I'm out," he says, moving to leave.

Permalink

"Bye!" She waves at him, then crosses her arms and huffs.

Permalink

He goes home.

He obviously doesn't hope she eats people, because that would result in people death, and that's bad, but if he stayed there any longer he thinks he would have tried to snap her neck, and that is not really a good impulse for him to have nor act on, so, no thanks.

Faith will have lots of fun without him.

Mu is still at the house when he arrives, keeping one eye on Matt while she browses on her laptop. She's got about twenty tabs of JSTOR open.

"Grace is apparently selling lemonade. I think she's spiking it with vampire blood. She objected to me supervising and didn't let me into her house."

Permalink

… Umwhat.

Permalink

"....of course she is. Great. Fantastic."

Permalink

"I don't think I'd be able to keep watch over her without– aggravating her or her aggravating me enough that it wouldn't be overall helpful."

Permalink

"Sooo are we just going to let her feed people blood?"

Permalink

Theo looks at her. "I am not up to arguing with her over whether she can run a lemonade stand, because I expect she will do it no matter what I say or try to do to her, and I'd really rather not try to forcibly restrain her. If you wish to try to go convince her, be my guest."

Permalink

"I mean, yes, granted... but, like, we are in agreement that this is not a good idea, right?"

Permalink

"I'm pretty sure it's not a good idea to dose people with vampire blood on the streets, no, especially if they then die and turn into vampires and we end up with people we need to watch. I mean, it'd be better but probably still not okay if she took down names and planned on watching them, but it's– I doubt she's doing that? She can probably remember the faces but that doesn't help much in finding them."

Permalink

"Ugh. Yeah. There really isn't a good way to stop her. Just what we needed, another complication."

Permalink

He makes a bit of a guilty face. "Yeah." Shrug. "Sorry."

Permalink

"I'd offer to go babysit her and make sure she doesn't chomp on anybody, but, you know, not sure I'm safe."

Permalink

"We can send Reubel over when he gets back from school, I guess, he might have the best chance of talking her out of all this shit, but yeah, not sure adding more volatile vampires to the mix is gonna fix anything."

Permalink

Theo nods and shrugs. "It seems like it's not a great idea to just– let her do it for half the day, but hopefully she won't get that many people anyway."

In the next like five hours, or whatever. Ha. (Ugh.)

Permalink

"Yeah. Well, if you have any brilliant ideas..."
