Marybeth

There was a series of events that followed this string of texts.

1- An 'awwwww' at Marybeth reaching out to explain her absence
2- A half written reassurance that it was okay, things happen, and a proposal to meet up some time
3- A curious 'oh?'
4- A large gasp, which broke and spluttered into an ungodly noise that could probably be identified as laughter
5- Tears of absolute joy

It would be several minutes before she responded. Because she watched the video a number of times.

This is the best thing I have ever received.

Honestly, the work put into getting her picture and everything was fucking phenomenally flattering.

Thank you Marybeth! You dont have to worry about missing my party, i understand! we should get together soon so i can thank you in person!!

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Oh good, Safiya wasn't mad!! And in fact she said the funny e-card Marybeth had made was the funniest thing she had ever received!

Sitting at her kitchen table, she curled up into a ball of happiness, hands at cheeks, for a few seconds before she got busy.

oh Good Im so glad !!! did you hear What h appened with Ophelia and the Rogue ???
Marybeth

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Marybeth was honestly so amazing. The question was confusing though!

No, what happened?

Ophelia was...the dark haired girl that had helped with the wolf. The one that seemed hella fucking salty about her flying.
Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Marybeth

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#7

Marybeth

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#8
Her and Osvald.

Thats good. Are you guys together? :) And, no, I don't think it happens all that often. I try and believe most vampires aren't that dumb.

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#9
No i'm At my apartment .
Marybeth

She held her phone in her hands, pressing the tips of her index fingers together, and thinking, and feeling. This level of violence, the attack on Ophelia, what had happened to Cris...it had no place in her view of the world, and yet here it was. It gave her a feeling of...vulnerability, of anxiety, like her front door was left wide open in the middle of a hurricane. She didn't know what to do about it, and the one tough, smart friend she could ask was dead.

The corners of her mouth tucked down, and she typed.

Do You think you could Teach me how to fight ?
Marybeth

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Oh, that wasn't... Anyway. She assumed the answer was definitely no.

The next question was... She blinked at it, then read back over their exchange. Oh. Oh no, Marybeth :(. She hadn't entirely read it as MB being nervous or disturbed by the attack, but with the question before her. Ouch.

I could, if you really want to! I'm not all that good either, but I could use the practice and we can learn togehter

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#11
Thank you . I want to Keep people safe .
When do you want To practice ?
Marybeth

She wiped at her eyes with the back of her hand, mouth still pulled down as if by hooks. At least with texting it was easier to not show you were crying.
Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#12
Oh god her heart. Marybeth was the sweetest woman on earth, Safi was convinced.

Any time you're free. We can do a weekend, if that works for you. I know a park that is always empty at night.

Wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#13
