1. I nodded, trying not to look flustered at the recognition. Then I realized Keith had frozen up beside me. He'd claimed he could "handle" being around Moroi, but apperantely, that meant staring gape-mouthed and not saying a word. Keeping a pleasant smile, I said, "Keith, this is Adrian Ivashkov. Adrian, this is my colleague, Keith Darnell."
Adrian held out his hand, but Keith didn't shake it. Wheter that was because Keith was still shell-shocked or because he simple didn't want to touch a vampire, I couldn't say. Adrian didn't seem to mind. He dropped his hand and took out a lighter, stepping past us as he did. He nodded towards the doorway.
"They're waiting for you. Go on in." Adrian leaned close to Keith's ear and spoke in an ominous voice. "If. You. Dare." He poked Keith's shoulder and gave a "Muahahaha" kind of monster laugh.
2. Keith frowned. "But you don't live here do you?" I was surprised that this, of all things, would draw him out. Maybe he didn't like the idea that his intel was faulty. He was Palm Spring's Alchemist, after all, and he'd believed Clarence was the only Moroi in the ares.
"Nor regurlarly, no," said Lee. "I go to college in L.A., but my schedule's just part-time this semester. So, I want to try to spend more time with Dad."
Abe glanced at Rose. "You see that?" he said. "Now that's devotion." She rolled her eyes at him.
3. "I glanced between them, puzzled. "I was told there'd be a dhampir along... did they decide to send two?
"Rose invited herself along," said Abe. "Just to make sure the rest of us didn't miss anything. Eddie's the one who will be joining you ate Amberwood."
Rose scowled. "I should be the one staying. I should be Jill's roommate. No offense, Sydney. We need you for the paperwork, but I'm the one who's gotta kick anyone's ass who gives Jill trouble."
Alors, êtes-vous impatients de retrouver Rose, Abe et surtout Adrian???
