Anando's Journals - post Living Out of the Box
Virginia is always tense during these calls, and very careful about what she says. She told me her parents were very conservative and would probably be very vocal about their disapproval if she told them she lives with a vampire. I can understand that, and it’s her choice what she wants to tell them, or anyone else for that matter.
Even without trying to eavesdrop, I can easily hear the other side of those conversations, and I can tell how much her mother wants to know more. It’s more than curiosity, I think, when she asks about me or the house. She has guessed there’s something Virginia isn’t telling her and she’s worried about her daughter. What does she imagine Virginia’s secret is? Is ‘my daughter’s boyfriend has fangs’ a possibility that could even cross her mind?
I have a feeling that, one of these days, she’ll tire of Virginia’s evading answers and cross the country to come knock on our door. After all, Virginia did the same thing when I tried to hide from her. The explanation that will ensue will certainly be something memorable, but I’m sure in the end everything will be fine. She sounds like a lovely woman on the phone, and I’ve always been very good at charming ladies when I put a little effort into it.
No, I’m really not worried about Virginia’s mother.
Her father on the other hand…
