…How do you know if you have internal bleeding?
Wh—Oh, yeah, I’m fine.
She is upset that Sophia came to me to help her with the vampire transition, and she has automatically taken the amount of time that Sophia has been spending with me to mean that Sophia is replacing her. She is jealous of something that she will not even listen to every side of. For some reason, in all of her brilliance, she felt the need to tell her daughter that since now that she is immortal, there will come a day where she has to watch the people that are human, and that she loves die. And, then she told her that she would be better off with me, which is unfortunately very true right now, but she brought it on herself. Sophia is afraid and overwhelmed, and instead of helping her like she should be, her mother is being an immature, overgrown child.
Yeah I can do that, no problem. Don’t worry about it.
You don’t mind me asking about…what’s going on with her and her Mom? She won’t really say anything except she thinks her Mom doesn’t want to be her Mom anymore.
…Ben, you have to understand, Vicki Donovan is an immature child with unresolved mommy issues that doesn’t know how to get over herself. And that sounds rude and horrible, and I know that, but it’s true. She’s jealous and petty, and she needs to grow up before she’ll be a decent mother to Sophia, and she knows that. Sophia shouldn’t have…ever heard the things that Vicki said, but she did. And once Vicki grows up, I would hope that she realizes that she needs to take back all of it.
..Well if you need someone to distract her, I don’t mind doing that. Unless you already have someone in mind. I think I have…something that could distract her, long enough, hopefully. But if you need me to get anything, I will.
I can think of a few people, but you were already on the list, so if you think you can keep her occupied for a few hours at some point between today and Wednesday morning, go ahead. And I will keep that in mind, thank you, Ben.
Do you need anything for it?
I don’t know yet. I’m going to have to find someone to distract her at some point between now and then so that I can go and get a present for her and stuff for that night, but I’m not sure when that’s going to happen yet.
It’s her birthday?
Wednesday is her birthday.
Why, what’s Wednesday?
Sophia turns twenty on Wednesday. And, she is getting a perfect birthday if it is the last thing I do.
