“My advice for girls who are waiting for their Prince Charming is to be open for anything. Be open to new experiences, be open to the idea that it may take longer than you want, but if you’re open to meeting new people and new adventures, then love will come along.”
Oh, thank you. Um, I’m Selene.
You’re welcome. It’s lovely to meet you, Selene. I’m Anastasia.
Someone told me I have the mentality of a seventh grader. I think I at least graduated to ninth grade.
Being mature doesn’t mean you have to completely give up being childlike. I mean, I’ve been alive for a century, and I still have my moments.
“Thank you, Ana. Just.. don’t overreact.”
“It’s been a while since we’ve done anything together. Would you like to go out?”
I would love that, Dimka.
Shit, I haven’t done that either.
Old and weary, mature, same difference.
And here I am acting old and weary.
I’m only 21.
It all depends on what you’ve been through. Some people mature quickly in a short amount of time, given their circumstances.
“And sometimes I forget how skilled you are..”
“If the problem persists, Ana, you will be the first to know. I promise I’ll be fine, love. I promise.”
You better be. This town doesn’t want to know what will happen if you end up not fine.
Have you been a vampire for as long as he has?
Not quite. I’ve only been with Dmitri for a century, give or take a few years.
Well if you need help, then let me know so I can run around with you. He’s a good vampire.
Thank you. I really appreciate that. Let’s just hope he ends up remembering how much he trained me, and doesn’t try to deal with whatever is going on with him alone.
Is he okay? Who hurt him?
I honestly don’t know…I haven’t gotten that out of him yet. He better talk soon, though, before I end up just running around the Cove trying to figure it out for myself.
