Anita worries about JC and Richard, and complains that she has to put things on a back burner. Wouldn’t want that to happen, would we.
She gets beeped by Dolph and McKinnon because she now needs to go to a new location. There’s a vampire on the way to the hospital, who is probably going to die, but the problem is that he’s the guardian for baby vamps. Without his guidance, the baby vamps are going to go crazy and immediately go eat a bunch of Girl Guides.
You know, the series is trying to present vampires as being interesting and reasonable characters, but all I get is stuff that tells me that vampires are entirely evil and cannot be helped.
“I’m on my way, but frankly, Dolph, I don’t know what you want me to do.”
“You’re the vampire expert, you tell me.” A little hostility there.
Maybe he’s so hostile because you never help him, Anita.
Larry phones her then, to whinge about how he has to help the police and that means he has to refuse to take his pain relief, because he thinks you can just walk off being staked through the fucking chest. Anita has to go pick him up, as he is apparently still working with his serious wound, and this really upsets him. Asking for help from a girl is just so galling.
This should not have been a chapter.
