And Ava earned it, Jesse replied, holding out his free hand for the change. I told you, fifty-fifty, plus she gets the car and the condo. Is she asking for more than that?
Is there one? I asked hopefully.There are a few, Ezra shrugged as if none of them were that good. Peter has some, I’m sure.
But there are many problems with a biology book about vampires. Autopsies are impossible, he went on. Whatever kills a vampire tends to destroy everything inside him, making it impossible to dissect it all and see how it differs from a human. But that’s only half the problem.What’s the other half of the problem?Have you heard about the bumblebee? Ezra leaned back against the end of the Peter’s four-post bed, crossing his feet over his ankles.
What are you talking about? I shook my head, confused by the abrupt subject change.According to an aerodynamic study done in the early 20th century, the bumblebee can’t possibly fly, Ezra explained. Its wings are much too small and can’t beat fast enough to carry the weight of its body.
What? I furrowed my brow and decided it must be a riddle. So… What? How do they get around then?
They fly, of course, he smiled at me.Because it’s misleading.
Misleading? I raised an eyebrow, and he leaned back on the couch, relenting.Fine. He sighed and ran a hand through his hair. The thing is, I dated this girl from the time I was 14 until I was 20. I mean, she was the only girl I was with for all of high school. After we broke up, I went out with one other girl for like four months, and that’s it. I mean, as a mortal guy, I had tons of girls that were friends, but like no action at all. So, two girls as a human. That’s it.
When I turned… suddenly hot girls wanted me, and even some hot vampires, which you know, when you’re new to this, vampires look really hot. He scratched at his head and shifted uneasily.You know how we said that in the beginning, you’re hungrier than normal? Like Milo thinks he needs to eat every hour when he really doesn’t? And all your emotions are right at the top? Well… so… He trailed off.
