"And he's not in the picture any more?"

"She left him, afterwards. It was a big thing. He's still living in LA."

Permalink

"-That isn't on you, Khloe. Regardless of what happened, it's not on you that their relationship couldn't handle it. Trust me. I know a lot about relationships handling pressure."

Permalink

"Me being a teenage delinquent, telling them that vampires exist and then them institutionalising me didn't help, I'm sure."

Permalink

"Still not on you," Henri says with a slight shrug. "You weren't lying. You weren't a deliquent."

Permalink

She nods.

"It's nice to be believed. My brother knows everything, which helped a lot. He's a good kid."

Permalink

"I'm glad you had him. I assume he understands not to make this...public beyond your family? And also that he is happy to wear a crucifix?"

Permalink

"He's been spaying holy water on himself every morning like it's fancy cologne."

Permalink

Henri laughs. "I appreciate the inventiveness. And yeah, that works too."

Permalink

"He's the brains, I'm the brawn. We make a good team."

Permalink

"Do we need to find an excuse for him to come and join us?"

Permalink

She laughs.

"I think he'd like that a lot. Maybe in a few years when he's a little less my baby brother."

Permalink

"Whenever you think best. The Slayers are... I respect greatly what you do, and yet. Your age is... a bone of contention. Sometimes."

Permalink

"There's no way to pick who gets chosen, or when, rather?"

Permalink

"Not that we've been able to find. It seems to be fairly random. There's a way to track down potentials, but that... doesn't necessarily mean that potential will be the next Slayer."

Permalink

"So there's no intelligence guiding it? Merrick spoke of Fate."

Permalink

"Maybe. But we've never been able to figure it out. Talia always likes to say that our Fate is what we make it."

Permalink

She nods and finishes closing up.

"I'm glad I have your help for that, at least. Maybe we can figure it out together."

Permalink

"Maybe we can. But for starters: I intend to make sure you live long enough that we don't need to worry about another Slayer being called for a while. That sound good to you?"

Henri starts walking towards where he knows there will be other people.

Permalink

"It's a good plan."

She follows along, swinging around her backpack and taking out a stake to conceal in her jacket.

Permalink

"Oh, here," Henri pulls a small aerosol out of his pocket. "CS gas laced with holy water. Good on random attackers and vampires."

Permalink

Khloe looks inpressed and takes it, putting it in her pocket.

"Do you have more of them? I could give them to a bunch of people. My mum, Alain, my new friends at school... the entire student body."

Permalink

"We can make more. Or make friends with a priest and get him to just straight up consecrate the CS gas. If that's even possible..."

Permalink

"I can be friendly. I'm very friendshaped."

Permalink

"I'll start looking around and seeing if there's actually any ordained priests in town."
