“Kara Unnarsdóttir? In a serious relationship?” She laughed, “The world itself would end, if that ever happened.”
Kara exchanged an amused look with Rose, when Rose reached her side. Then, she slipped her arm around Rose’s waist, casually pulling Rose against her.
Rose smiled nervously, when the woman’s gaze shifted toward her. “Hi.”
“Hi,” the vampire repeated, offering her a baffled smile. “Who are you?”
With a painfully awkward shrug, Rose mumbled, “Serious relationship?”
The vampire’s eyes widened. Her wide, brown eyes shifted toward Kara, who simply smiled. “Oh, no,” she said, blinking. “The world is ending, isn’t it?”
“Well, I mean, yeah,” Rose said dismissively, “but not until tomorrow.”
All of the color drained from the vampire’s face. “Wait. What?”
Kara leaned in and whispered in Rose’s ear, “I hadn’t gotten to that part yet.”
Rose frowned. She turned to face Kara, feeling a little colder when Kara’s hand slipped away from her hip. “You said you’d warn everyone while I packed.”
Kara frowned worriedly. “Ah! I forgot to ask you to grab my battle-axe.”
“I got your battle-axe, Kara,” Rose laughed. “It’s kind of hard to miss.”
Relief washed over Kara’s face. “You’re wonderful,” she said, and then, she leaned in, clearly planning to kiss Rose—only to be stopped by Rose’s finger.
“Focus!” Rose said with a laugh. “You were supposed to warn everyone.”
“I am warning them,” Kara assured her. “I just haven’t had enough time.”
Rose gave her a skeptical look. “You haven’t had time to warn them that they’re all going to die, but you’ve had time to tell them I’m your new girlfriend?”
Kara grinned, her light blue eyes sparkling. “I’m very proud of myself.”
Rose tilted her head, flashing a sassy smile at her. “Aren’t you always?”
“Uhh, hello?!” the vampire interrupted. “You said the world is ending?!”
