"Yep."

And they wait.

"Is he human?" Emmy whispers quietly while they wait. "Only -"

Permalink

"Nah. He is a priest, though."

Permalink

"I'm glad you don't have to be human to be a priest, I didn't know that."

"I don't think the hierarchy's ruled on it, but his holy water works, so I'm taking that as a ruling from God."

She nods fervently. And then sits fairly still rubbing her hands together and looking miserable.

Karen hugs her.

 

Hey Father Michael?

How do they get volunteer vampires for something like this?

Permalink

They offer them extra blood. 

Permalink

Oh. OK.

 

Do they give them enough blood normally?

Permalink

Every one I've seen has been in good health, which starving vampires are not.

Permalink

OK.

Thanks.

Hugs. Hugs hugs hugs.

"Yeah."

            "That was a valid baptism."

"Oh. Oh."

Permalink

Hugs?

Permalink

Yeah she's just going to cry a lot for the next while but hugs are good.

Permalink

This is a pretty sensible reaction. Karen will keep offering hugs for as long as that seems like a good thing to do.

Permalink

She doesn't really stop crying but eventually she sniffles that they should go back to camp.

Permalink

"Yeah. OK."

 

So do you know anything about what one does when one's friend finds out that she's gonna keep having lizard babies every month for who knows how long? Because they didn't cover this in confirmation classes either.
