An atheist waving a cross at a vampire was a truly pitiful sight.
Pity is an emotion that can get you killed. The only thing more dangerous is blind hate, and maybe love.
Everything I needed was in my car, even the chickens
That kiss was really nice you know before you...bit me, but it was still nice.
Graves are for the living, not the dead. It gives us something to concentrate on instead of the fact that our loved one is rotting under the ground.
The Catholic Church sees voluntary vampirism as a kind of suicide. I tend to agree. Though the Pope also excommunicated all animators, unless we ceased raising the dead. Fine; I became Episcopalian.
He rewarded me with one of those brilliant smiles. If I had been less professional, it might have melted me into my socks. There was a tinge of evil to it, a lot of sex, but under that was a little boy peeking out, an uncertain little boy. That was it. That was the attraction.

I spend most of my waking hours confronting and destroying things that I fear. A thousand-year-old master vampire was a tall order, but a girl's got to have a goal.
Important safety tip - never look a vampire in the eye.
It is a very natural human trait to destroy that which frightens us.
Methinks we have a clue. Be still, my heart.
Most hatred is based on fear, one way or another. Yeah. I wrapped myself in anger, with a dash of hate, and at the bottom of it all was an icy center of pure terror.
