  1. There was not a lot that she shared here. She was not supposed to share anything anyway. Not with muggles- which was usually what she dealt with here, with a few notable exceptions. She looked at the young woman and smiled. It was one of those thing he had learned to be coy about. ”I grew up all over Australia. My parents moved quite a bit- we lived in an RV.” She had liked it honestly, they didn’t have too many material things and they were able to enjoy themselves. ”I didn’t go to uni so there was nothing to study really.” She shrugged her pale shoulders before she looked back at the young woman. ”usually I just sleep… since I’m up most of the night doing things.” She said with a smile as she looked at her. ”What about you? What do you usually do around this time?”
  2. His answer surprised her. Stella had not thought he considered outside the walls of the club, but he had not really answered the question, but he had at least given her some information. He was a hard read. She wondered if she read his palm if she would be able to see the information. Or if it would be hidden from her. She was out of practice and being a vampire had changed her perceptions and abilities. It was strange, that and some were simply easier to read than others. She thought about having her aura read… if there was anything left to read. She was not sure how much she had changed. His words made her look down for a moment red hair cascading over her shoulders. She had always been shy and meek, men, and boys didn’t realty look at her. Not the way he looked at her. It was something strange to see someone look at you. To wonder what it was that they saw in you. ”I am blindly loyal most of the time.” She said with a small shrug of her pale shoulders. It was the truth ia well as why she ended up with her heart broken so many times, and not by a boy but her family, her friends, the idea of life. She nodded. ”That is not surprising you are cagey.” she confirmed…. He was rather cagey with himself. His chuckle made her smile as she looked at him, studying his enigmatic face. ”I think you like the status that it seems to give you…” It always did seem to give someone status when they were secretive… they had a reason to be secretive. ”You do not strike me as that type…” She said honestly. There was too much in how he carried himself. ”I may not be able to read your aura but I can tell there is some importance to what you do and who you are.” she said honestly. Yakuza… She was familiar with that word. The violence that surrounded it. ”I think that being around either of us, is good for someone’s longevity.” She countered. ”I can handle myself.” She said, and honestly she could. ”What if I want to know where to find you?”
  3. She nodded. There was plenty of cheap beer. However the club was not one that carried a great deal of it. They liked to at least look a little classy. ”Like microbrew?” she asked as she decided on one for the young woman. ”This one is pretty great, for cheap.” She tilted the glass as she pulled the lever keeping the foam head to a minimum. She was not a fan of it. She set the glass in front of her. ”Its smooth, easy to drink and not as bitter as most pale ales.” she said with a smile. She had gotten pretty well versed in the world of alcohol and she was able to make suggestions. That and she knew how to make most of the common drinks ordered It was a good thing. Especially for her. ”Oh that’s pretty fascinating… I don’t think I would have considered that when I was in school…” Which was pretty accurate. She had never really been interested, she loved animals, she had a small pet mouse when she was on the road with her parents. He was a good friend to her, slept in her pocket mot of the time. She smiled. ”Do you just work with the roos or do you have other things you like?” she questioned.
  4. Looking at him she shrugged. ”How much do you actually consider me at all?” she questioned. Though in reality it was not as though it hurt her to think when he was not at the club. She doubted that she had the presence to make anyone think of her outside of where they encountered her. It was human nature and she didn’t fault anyone for such things. It was not as though she thought about every single patron she saw at the club, just a few. Him for example. ”I didn’t ask for the second chance.” Which was the issue deep down. She didn’t like the way it felt… the lack of her heart beat, the way she sensed things now. As if everything was on 300 and not 10… She looked at him and shrugged. ”Perhaps that is what ha made me seek the danger? I now have a chance to do things others might want to do… like tempt the fates.” That was not her purpose tonight… she was simply lingering… waiting for something maybe? Or maybe she was hoping something would happen and her mind would change. It seemed that Jon had shown up. That alone was enough to derail her for the day anyway. ”People think he’s an ass. And he can be. I wouldn’t take that from him, but he does give a damn still. I don’t know, I guess I am pretty biased.” he didn’t know that he had taken a chance on her but she wouldn’t let anything happen to him or his club while she was around. As much as she could anyway. It was not the easiest task honestly. ”Enigma… is that a definition of yourself you have just given me?” She questioned. It seemed like a good word for him honestly. He was a bit of an enigma in many ways. She leaned into the couch as she looked at him. ”Everyone deserves to have some time for fun” which was the truth honestly. ”But I don’t know if some people have it in them.” She said with a small shrug She had known a few people who were like that. Though she didn’t know if Jon was one of them. ”It doesn’t take enjoyment to feel abandoned you know… sometimes when something that has been there is suddenly not… that can breed such feelings.” She suggested. ”I don’t know if I know enough about you to begin to know where to look for you when you are not at the club.”
  5. Stella shrugged. ”Maybe that is why I keep looking for danger.” She suggested. The fact someone was telling her to have concern for her life was new. It had always seemed as though people want to talk about making sure she did not endanger the life of others. ”I am not sure that it would be such a terrible thing to be dead, dead.” She said. Though she knew what the implications of her words may be. It had taken a while for her to feel as though she could share her feelings about anything to anyone. However, he had been in the club enough times, they held conversations beyond the typical small talk one might use with patrons… He was hard to read, that was all she knew. Her forehead netted and then relaxed as she turned to the door. Pulling the key from her jeans she opened the door to the back entrance, there was a stairway that led up to the apartment. No one was in it… Jack had gone home and the owner was in Norway… or something. He also didn’t usually sleep there, he had a posh place in the suburbs. He had a party there every quarter for the employees which was honestly a great time. leading him up the narrow stairs she led him into the place. The curtains were not as opaque as the ones in her place but they kept the light out save for a few slivers she could easily avoid. ”He keeps it for us to crash when we need it, if we drank too much or are too tired. He treats us like family. He’s a pretty okay guy to work for.” She said. Even if he did a little shady shit on the side. Letting out a small sigh she dropped her body into the couch. She had not been lying when she said she had been tired. ”Is that so?” She questioned him. ”Do not feel like you need to delegate things on account of me… I am hardly worth that trouble.” she said with a sly smile. She knew he needed to keep the man in line ”You sit in my club nightly because you need him to behave himself…” She then paused. ”It would not be the first time someone has abandoned me… and I have found in the past, that people who leave you do not want to be found.” Though she had only been teasing.
  6. It had not been too busy of a night, but Stella preferred the busy honestly, the more she seemed to be occupied the faster things seemed to go. Though, tonight was not too bad, it gave her time to chat with the regulars. They always seemed to have something going on in their live and she enjoyed listening to them honestly. The lives they lived outside of the club had to be absolutely boring but they seemed to make do. Then again that had been the whole point to working in a muggle club, to avoid detection and the mass mob that would then chase her down and throw her into the sun. If she was going to die it would be by her own hand. Looking up she watched the redhead as she stumbled about the bar and she snickered a bit. Poor thing hadn’t had anything to drink, at least not here. The girl sat and Stella moved. Placing a napkin down in front of her she smiled. ”What can I get you?” She asked. ”Rough day?” She questioned. Pulling her long red hair to one shoulder she smiled at the patron. ”This is a good place to be…”
  7. In some ways, she did have a death wish, she was not herself and it was fairly clear that she was a hunted and not so well accepted creature. Not that it mattered too much. She was still impulsive and she worried the urge to do something she shouldn’t be doing would only grow stronger over the years. That she would never mature past 16. Looking up she was relatively surprised to see Kao, he had not come to club, neither had his charge. She had not thought she would see him. It was an interesting thing, their interactions after the beach having been confined to the club. She was confused by him more than she felt as though she understood him. That was not a huge feat though, it was fairly common for her to feel a smidge off. It could very well be the absence of a heartbeat. Looking at the man she casually shrugged. ”I l ike to live a little dangerously, adrenaline is a hell of a drug.” Though that was not the true reason. She didn’t want to get into that just now. Not with him. She did not want to appear weak in front of anyone. She kept her true thoughts and possible intentions to herself. ”It was a long night I suppose I am just moving slow and not too concerned about it.” She shrugged it off as though it was nothing more than a common mistake. However she retreated into the alley-, deeper into the shadows. It was safer and the truth was, she wouldn’t make it home in time. There was a small apartment above the club, it was there for them to use ion case they were too tired or too drunk. ”Shall I show you a little more behind the scenes?” she questioned. Though, for once she was unsure of how he might answer. ”I haven’t seen you or your friend around… I thought you had abandoned me.” Which would not be unheard of, nor would it have been different from any of the number of people who had abandoned her in the past, though now she used it as a cheeky accusation. Funny how time changed things.
  8. The sun was starting to rise and Stella knew if she didn’t hurry she would be stuck… or worse. It was harder to find ways to want to stay here. To want to live like she was living. Maybe it would be better for all if she just stepped into the sun and burned up? Then there was no worry about her losing control. In truth it was very unlikely anyone would miss her if she did… she was a vampire, she was a bloodsucker, the scourge of the earth. She was nothing. She let out a deep sigh. That has always been her biggest fear, that she would amount to nothing. It had been something she thought about with her family, and then she had been given a new life in the magical world… only to have that taken from her. People didn’t like her kind, they didn’t hire her kind and it was becoming impossible to fight some of her deeper urges. She wanted to be able to have a moment in the actual sun. Not only see it from a far… or watch the rays as they moved across the floor in her home. Even there they were dangerous. She let out a deep sigh. The sky was starting to loose the inky blueness of the night and she watched the stars disappear from view, obscured by the sunlight. She thought so much was wrong with her and she had only seen the way people had reacted to her to know that she was right. She was the monster. Her problems all boiled down to her in the long run. Letting out a soft sigh she watched people as they moved about. The early morning movements were not unusual, but they were foreign to her. Especially now. There was a deep sadness inside of her as she his in the dark shadows of the alley way beside her club. At this point she would spend most of the day here, or in the club itself. She had done it before when she had stayed too late to clean up. That had been one hell of a night. Today had only been driven from loneliness. She wrapped her thin arms around herself. With the sun coming up, it wouldn’t be but a simple step out into it. Not into the main drag, more towards the back of the building would be better- less witnesses. If she had a heart, it would be pounding at the adrenaline of the situation. What the hell was Stella doing? What the hell could she possibly think she was doing? She leaned against the brick and took a deep breath as the shadows in the alley moved with the sun’s position. Well… fuck.
  9. The in crowd… even in school she had never believed that about herself. the truth was Stella never felt like she fit in anywhere. She had been lucky she met Kelsey because more often than not Stella had more or less felt as though she was being made fun of. It was not the best feeling that was for sure, but considering she had not left Australia, she wondered if she ever would leave given the fact now seemed like an opportune time. She supposed that she was not quite ready to leave someplace she had made some kind of home out of. She let out a small sigh as she watched as the waves crested a little further out. She had always liked watching it. Looking at him she shrugged. ”Death is also something that has become far more philosophical than I would like to get into.” She countered. Letting out a small sigh she looked at him. ”It is not that dangerous given what I could do to you.” It wouldn’t be the worst thing to deal with though she knew that if she had felt truly threatened she wouldn’t have come. She also felt given the last time she had attempted to make a connection had not gone so well, she needed to at least try it again. At least once or twice anyway. She let out a small smile as she looked back at the water. If nothing else this had proven to be interesting anyway. She looked at him and she wondered for a moment about what could have happened to her. Usually hose who hunted vampires didn’t draw it out. They were more mission oriented than most. Though she had been rather vulnerable with him. ”If it makes you feel better, no one really gets banned without some severe incidents. A woman who overdosed in the bathroom and we had to call triple zero for. Though we had to move her to the sidewalk before we could actually call.” which was a sad comment on the club scene but honestly, it was the same at her club as any of them. Having the police arrive was a rather challenging thing. Not to mention the paperwork. ”So long as he keeps himself from needing emergency services he should be alright. My boss cares about his money, and only when that is threatened doe he ever truly act.” she said with a shrug of her shoulders. Though she found herself a little disappointed. He would handle his friend and that seemed to be the extent of it. ”I will be sure to let the others know to call you if he gets a little rambunctious.” Which seemed like the right word for the man in question. ”The bouncers don’t mind the messy ones, I think they actually like it. Sublimation.” It was her thought anyway. She thought it was anyway. ”Do you choose? Or is it something chosen for you? Shadows over something such as fire, or water?” It seemed like an interesting question, but then again she had no real idea about much of anything as it turned out. She listened to the explanation he gave and she then shrugged at his suggestion. ”I am not so sure I would want my head to be separated from my body either.” She shrugged. ”It will come when the time comes. I suppose I cannot say what method I would choose… or if I would choose the method.” She didn’t want to count anything in, or out at this point.
  10. She held no romantic notions about what she was. She had to admit some literature made it seem like one long gothic Romance but the idea of eternity seemed daunting now. It was possible Stella would choose to die when she had enough… she couldn’t imagine the way so many exist forever. She had a life she wanted to live- there were things she would miss out on, having children and the traditional family certainly… but now what sort of family would she make? Her muggle friend would have one, and each one would die… She hated that idea. The idea of death was not one she was friendly with, even in her current state. One might think otherwise but Stella wondered how much of this lifestyle she would be able to take. Personal worth…another interesting idea. What was a person worth? Would it be any less or more than a vampire? There were those who would put a price on her head, as if to say this creature is worth more or less than this creature. Even among her species she was not one who would fetch a high price. She knew that was not what he meant, but it seemed to beg the question. How much was she actually worth… and how did you label it? She did not want to be the one to assign that sort of thing. She felt it started to muddy the waters a bit. ”Even the outcasts have outcasts.” She said with a small smile. It was something she had heard once before. She had liked it, because it was true… she had seen it in school, in the community and even at the club. ”Right now, different is a death sentence.” she maybe was being dramatic but it was true. She was not in control enough to pass as one who had walked the earth for a long time, and she was something the muggles, and the magical would want to have contained if she happened to step out of line. She Shrugged. ”I could always handle him, he is like you? In that he knows about where we come from?” She questioned. It was not as though she had a good read of him, aside from the fact he seemed to think a petite woman bumping into his boss was a reason to snarl. ”I can always handle him- though not in the most traditional way… If he gets too rowdy he won’t be allowed to come back. The bouncers are pretty strict about the behaviors in the club. The police showing up does not make for good business anywhere.” Especially where she worked. Stella gave a soft hum as she considered. ”I can contact you just to handle your friend?” She questioned. Unsure of herself in the moment. Though not especially unfamiliar she had not quite understood why she asked the question. ”Yes.” She said in response to his question. ”As much as we can be.” There was very rarely complete understanding in her world. ”If nothing else we are headed in the same direction” That was a plus at least. ”That seems frustrating.” She commented. Much like she had found this vampire thing frustrating she imagined he must also be frustrated. It was one thing to know you had the ability and another to figure out how to tap into it. ”Shadow?” No wonder he was intrigued when he noticed she had none. There was nothing to manipulate- from what he had said. She honestly knew little about those things… ”I have become decent at finding them, for me they offer a way out of burning to death, which is not how I would want to go. At least not yet.” She wouldn’t count out someday.
  11. Stella had been used to feeling like a throw away, his words while harsh, had only been true in her world. She had been left for dead, and then left once more by her family. It was not a very good feeling and she hugged herself. She had once been told that she had feelings to big for her body and this seemed like one of those times. It was if she was only trying to keep them from escaping and making a spectacle of her. ”You have no idea” She could hear his heartbeat in his throat, she could hear the creatures as they moved through the sand. At night it could be truly maddening. The club had been an odd choice, however it had been a way to help drown out and focus on the important sounds. Right now she was not sure what would be the important thing. It seemed like there was a lot to listen to, a lot to hear. There was a lot to take into account… She watched the ocean as the waves came in washing in and taking away sands. She looked at him. There was nothing truer than the fact her life had been changed completely. ”Different.” she repeated the word. It was something she had heard so many times since the attack. She was not sure just how different until she had come to fully understand her new lifestyle… though she really didn’t think she had any sort of understanding beyond how to keep others safe from her. It was not something he had put too much thought into…though she figured it was more about some of the other things that would have brought him to the club she worked in. In all honesty she had no idea why the patrons came and she didn’t actually care so long as they kept coming and she kept getting decent tips. She would always be pleasant to them that much she knew but she was not sure that she wanted to know what brought them in. However his presence was one she had taken note of. ”Is he going to be a problem?” She asked. Though she felt she already knew the answer. At least she knew she could handle them. ”That is not what I meant.” She had not meant they were uneven ground still, though in reality she was not sure there was ever truly even ground. ”we are on the same path now at least.” She suggested, it was a better metaphor and by nature a path could be uneven in many places and sometimes footing was different in different places. She let out a soft sigh. ”It seems we are in the same boat so to speak… have you put any thought into how you might uncover that information? Or is it something you don’t wish to know?” She asked him.
  12. Leftovers. That was a rather harsh way to put it. Though she supposed he was not wrong. Even her family had not been willing to take her back in. Much like a baby bird who fell from the nest only to be placed back by a kind hand… The man who had come to the hospital and spoken with her had explained to her, and then to her family what had happened to her. They had then left the hospital and left her things in a suitcase in her room. She did not have many things then, and she still had not collected many things… but then she had not seen the need to start accumulating things. She was as stationary as she had ever been, but she was also not interested in leaving those things behind when she inevitably had to move on. She wouldn’t want to be held up on account of packing. Or just a habit she would never quite shed. It was not just the ears but he seemed to get what she had meant to say with that analogy. She nodded. It was like everything was rushing at you at once and you had no idea how to sort it because the basic things had changed within you. Your heart no longer beat to keep time, the blood that once warmed you no longer did… you were hungry but food no longer held the same thing it once. Which had made her rather sad honestly, she had always loved food. Always. She wondered if the memories of food would also fade from her. Stella had not wanted this. She had never thought she would want something like this… and yet here she was. There had been help from the ministry but there was regimen to it. She supposed that had been one of the things helping her through this process at the moment. The regimen that would keep her from straying too far and venturing into something dangerous, not just for her but for those around her that she could harm if she was not careful. The door, the way she kept herself from making personal connections beyond the regulars at the club where the interaction was always with the bar between them. She looked up at the moon and thought about the way it affected the world even without being visible all the time. The way it pulled the tides in…s he wondered if that was how she would be once he settled herself. ”Of course.” she said at the babysitter comment. She didn’t fully believe him… but then she may eventually come to learn he had not told her a lie. She had wondered often what brought some manner of men into the club, but she never attempted to ask too many questions… she knew what sorts of things may happen if one asked too many questions. She had heard a few things about the club, but she had more or less kept those things to herself. She looked over at him surprised. ’You are a Fae?”[b/] She was surprised he had said anything at all. ‘”I suppose it does in that we both know what the other is… so to speak.” She studied him. "You dont know?"
  13. Complacency had not been something she had ever lived with. Even as a child she knew no such thing. The life of a nomad was one that did not allow for such things, not to mention they had not been the sort of nomads who blended well anywhere. Among the magical, among the non-magical… Con men rarely made real friends. She wondered if that was what she was falling into now, a con. She could spot them- or she should have been able to. The lack of personal details that he provided her. It was no longer just unnerving but familiar enough to put her a bit on edge. The way it may or may not play out- the fact she could be left like so many in the wake of what he had planned. His hands moved and though not unwelcome, she made a choice. Taking a moment her hands sliding to his biceps she pushed away from him. She was not so easily won over. At least she would have to prove to herself she was not. She had spent years without such touch. ”Regardless, I am not looking to encounter them. I am not quite interesting enough to be anyone’s target. So the only option is I was simply meant to be a meal, and not a calculated change… You would think, based on heavily romanticized idea of vampires, that there would be that invisible pull to something…. But in reality… it is just like being put next to the subwoofers at a concert.” She shook her head. Maybe eventually, she would run into them, but she wondered if she would know, or if it would be like meeting any other stranger. She sighed. She figured she would at least be able to tell that they were like her and beyond that… she didn’t think she would be able to make any sort of inference as to who they were. It would be a good vampire strategy. Though she had not thought about asking the ministry to see… she supposed she could ask if there would be someone willing to help. They would at least feel this was a decent idea, to keep her from potentially going crazy and killing indiscriminately. Though it would give her a vast amount of attention, it was not the sort of attention she wanted. She would have preferred something positive but those days were over, she was only seen as the danger she now posed. Stella had not a clue what she would be now had not been for the vampire attack- but she felt she would at least be able to move as she wished to move through the world. It was a strange world she operated in now. The fact she needed certain things to survive where she would have preferred anything else. Watching him for a moment she studied the way he labeled himself. The way he held himself. It was something she had not cared much for before, but she had always been a little more focused on the inside. Of course that was developmentally appropriate- according to one of the healers she had seen after the attack. She had not thought much about what was or was not developmentally appropriate except now she had new definitions for developmentally appropriate. Assault of the psyche- which seemed to make her wonder further if he was a sociopath. Or worse. ”Does that have to do with why you were in the club?” She asked. Though she was not sure he would tell her much more about himself at this point.
  14. It was not something she liked to think about. Someone with no fear. She wondered if this was a sign to leave. Or if he would eventually do what they all have done in the past. It worried her in many ways. It was likely why she had not been this close to someone before. Her secret was not a secret really- she was registered, she just kept her secret among the muggles and those who had not been in her circle of friends at school… though most had known she was the Tally student that had been attacked at the market… She wondered how werewolves felt when they were attacked.. would it have been an interesting topic of conversation since they tended to be attacked and left a well. How did one get along and learn the rules without someone to guide them… ”I am not particularly interested in meeting my sire. They clearly didn’t expect me to live… I doubt they know I did survive.” It was a strange thing. Stella felt no pulls to something anymore. She had not felt the pull to be with her family, or sire… or whoever she was expected to feel that pull towards. She knew her parents were out there but the tether to them had been cut as if by the fates. ”Maybe one would be nice… someone who knows what I am going through, how this whole process feels…” She said as she looked at him. She had wanted to be able to at least talk about the urges she had never had before. The desire to sink her teeth into someone’s flesh… It was not a good feeling for Stella. She had never wanted to harm someone before all of this. He seemed too sophisticated for her. She came from a family of cons. They moved around when they were run out of town. She had studied at school, but she did not have the same world quality to her. She was young, in more ways than one. ”There are rules to what I am and I don’t know them… not all of them really. I know the rules that have been put on me by the Ministry…” They were similar but she did not have the full grasp of her species just yet. She supposed she had plenty of time to figure it out. ”It is not as though there is any central reliable information for new vampires to check out and study… like the way muggles are given a handbook to learn how to drive.” she shrugged. It was what it was she supposed. She looked down. The question made her blush. ”I don’t know.” She said softly. It was a strange thing, to feel this particular desire so strongly. Though she worried what it would mean. He could take his pleasure and never be seen or heard from again. ”Can anyone be defined as one thing? I want to know what you would label yourself. You dodge my questions- I have answered yours.” She said. It was not often she was so demanding of someone but she wanted to know. ”You have me figured out, and it makes me feel exposed.”
  15. Dark brown eyes narrowed as he confirmed there was nothing he feared. ”I don’t believe you.” She said honestly. There was always something. She had seen it many times, but she wondered why he didn’t seem to want to admit it. ”Fear is necessary- unless you are telling me you are a socio path and you feel nothing.” Which would seemed likely given the way Stella’s life seemed to be going. She looked at the man in front of her and wondered what went on in his mind. He seemed to know a lot about this sort of thing for someone who had no fear. Letting out a small sigh she wondered if this was the part where she pushed him away, out of fear that while he said he had no ulterior motives, she rarely took people at their word anymore. She had been promised unconditional love from her parents but they had not stuck by her. She was supposed to be loved by someone and she was loved by no one. That was one of the hardest things to accept. ”I suppose most like me have the one who turned them to turn to when they need guidance. The one who turned me attacked me and left me for dead. I have not heard from them, I have never sensed them… they abandoned me.” Like her parents. This was how one developed a complex about these things. ”I have not been around too many others like me honestly” she had not wanted to give up her humanity in any capacity. Though she supposed she had not hung onto it very well give the life she led, how she hid in the darkness and shadows now. She let out a small sigh. She should push him away and run. Leave before he could hurt her. Leave before she set herself up to get hurt. The man felt no fear… Should that scare her? She bit her lip for a moment. ”I wouldn’t know how to go about exploring…” Which was the truth. She didn’t have someone to show her and she didn’t want to draw attention to herself- more importantly she didn’t want to hurt someone with her abilities. Stella was worried about more things than she felt at ease with. Including this man. Who she was pressed against and she had yet to make a move to leave his grasp. ”As though you are complaining about your hands on my body.” She said as she looked at him for a moment before she took a moment to focus on the way his hands felt on her. ”Though you have been a gentleman about it.” She pointed out. His hands could have wandered to some not so innocent places. She looked at him. ”I hope that is true…” She never wished for things to happen to others and though he was only little more than a stranger she didn’t want to see harm come to him. She listened to him explain why she was a survivor and she was not so sure that he was right but… she was not going to debate that with him. At least not now. Letting out a small sigh she watched him for a moment. Studying his facial features and committing them to memory. ”What are you if I am a survivor?”
