Just your friendly reminder not to mess with Rose. Because… 1) Rose can rip you apart with her mind, and 2) Kara is REALLY good at killing people. 😂
Kara flashed a dangerous smile at him. “I’ve poisoned sixteen people this week and dismembered twenty-seven. Twenty-eight, if you insult her again.”
Rose stared at Kara, her eyes wide. She slowly returned her gaze to the EXTREMELY rude vampire and offered him an apologetic smile—that he didn’t deserve. “Kara takes her oath to protect me a little TOO seriously,” she explained.
“Clearly,” the vampire snarled.
Kara watched as he turned and disappeared into the living room. “He’s not as useful as he thinks he is. I don’t think anyone would complain if I killed him,” she said thoughtfully. When she noticed that Rose was watching her with both eyebrows raised, her lips twitched upward at the edges. “What?” she said with a guilty smile. She shrugged. “I’m nothing, if not a woman of her word.”
Rose gave her a skeptical look.
“A woman of her word who lies,” Kara amended, “a lot.”
Rose tilted her head to the side, frowning at the paradoxical statement.
“But I’m a spy and an assassin,” Kara added as she led the way toward the kitchen. She leaned forward and opened the door for Rose. “So, it doesn’t count when I lie.”
Rose laughed, “I don’t think it works that way, but…nice try.”
