"So you're a vampire."
Clio was once again back in Kryssin's room packing for the trip she didn't want to take with a man she couldn't trust herself to be around. Picking a fight seemed the most reasonable solution to her hormonal problem.
"You have that whole mind thing going."
"You've been around for a million years."
"You've got issues with sunlight."
"Yes but-"
"You can turn all freaky when you want,"
"I suppose you can call it that but-"
"Then you're a vampire."
"No, I'm not."
"But you drink blood, shrink in sunshine and can put a whammy on someone's mind."
"I'm not a damn vampire, woman."
"But you have the whole blood thing going on?"
"That makes you a vampire."
"No, it doesn't."
"Let's try this again," she said ticking off each finger as she spoke. "You drink blood, you have a problem with the sun, you have the pointy teeth thing and you sleep during the day. I say that makes you a vampire." She paused as a new thought occurred to her. "Can you change into a bat?"
"Why would I want to? And I'm not a vampire!"
"It's okay, really, I won't tell anyone, but you can't keep denying it when you don't have a reflection. It's a huge vampire give away."
