"That's probably fair of him. I'll see you."
She heads home and tells Azalea that Real Dinner should happen Thursday. She reads her books. She considers whether she should tell Azalea more and whether she should tell Alex more and whether she should tell -
- she actually has no idea what Zeke would do if she announced that that she's getting serious training in vampire-killing now, and that she has a new trainer-person whose attitude towards not-currently-violent vampires is not really something she feels comfortable gambling on. Probably not try to kill anyone directly, if only because it sounds dangerous. Probably he'll just leave town and make her somewhat sad about that. But he could tell someone else. He could buy a gun. She likewise has no idea what Alex would do if she told him that she's friends with a vampire; probably ask her if she's sure that he's not committing any murders, and given that she actually technically isn't, quite possibly kill him.
She can maybe just not mention either to the other, but this seems unlikely to work very well long-term unless she just never talks to Zeke again, and even then Zeke might worry that she's dead and come check on her.
Why is protecting people not really simple, like just always running into burning buildings to save trapped toddlers?
Possibly she should get some advice. Who does she know who cannot go killing people after being asked for advice on the subject, even if they think that someone really needs to be killed?
She checks her parish bulletin and confirms that St. Mary's very conveniently has 7:30 AM confessions on Tuesdays, and that she can probably make it from there to school by 8:00 AM if she runs the whole way. St. Mary's probably also has other priests who ever do things, but it's worth a shot. Or, like, maybe it's not, maybe confessing that you're scared that your decisions are going to get your confessor's brother killed is a terrible thing to do to someone, but she's going to do it anyway, because maybe she is terrible when she's afraid that she's going to get her friends killed.
She's at the church at 7:10, mostly because she can't very well invite Father Michael to dinner while she's confessing, and can't very well wait until 8:00 and be late for school, so she has to catch him on the way in. If he happens to be the priest on duty today at all.
