Tina climbed into bed exhausted and extremely overwhelmed from the events over the last several hours. To think she was shut up here in her apartment mourning the end of a relationship with one woman earlier that day to be thrown straight into a complicated relationship with a vampiress. Tina couldn’t really call it a relationship because she wasn’t technically in one but she couldn’t deny there was truth to what was presented to her tonight. Also her finishing the poem Bette was reciting added further confirmation unless Bette was doing mind tricks on her. Tina giggled at the thought.

Christina nods scanning the crowd and turns back to the woman “Indeed Cora. I’m so glad I was able to get the washing finished for Ms. Newstead so I could join you”

“Cora at least you are clothed, fed, and have a roof over your head. Stop bellyaching” Christina nudges Cora in her side
