Mia lead the way to a burger bar and sat down at the counter top, ordering immediately. “A chicken burger and a diet coke thanks.” She said, looking around. “This is one of the places I visit very rarely.” Mia said to Rose, “Is it any good?”
Rose ordered 2 burgers and a large order of fries with an iced tea before the waiter left. She was starved by the time practice was over. Rose glanced around at the little restaurant, taking in the people it had there as well. They seemed younger, and the service was rumored to be good too. “Well, I guess we’ll find out when we get our food.”
Rose thanked the waiter when he brought their drinks, and took big gulps of her tea before giving Mia a smile. “So. Tell me what’s been going on around here. I’ve been bored… and you’ve been doing…?”
If I haven’t replied to your para, send me a message!
“You two are a match made in heaven. Or somewhere.”

Eddie could not believe how this conversation was turning out. Then again, maybe he couldn’t believe that Rose was already stirring things up after having been here for less than a day.
“I think…it’s really up to Jill.” He said honestly. It was, wasn’t it? It was her life and while she had to do things much more carefully now, it didn’t mean that she couldn’t have a little fun. Even if that did mean he had to watch her have fun with Micah. He couldn’t be bitter about that though, he was her Guardian and it was his responsibility to protect her from danger, not have feelings for her.
“You know Rose, if you keep up all this talking you’ll never get to it.” He said quietly, but he knew she could hear. He was rewarded with a few chuckles of laughter from everyone in the room.
Rose perked her eyebrows up, giving Eddie props. She had excepted this, actually. The fact that he was being so calm in front of everyone, including Jill, wasn’t a surprise to her. Eddie was the picture perfect of calm, and it seemed to be his job was going well with Jill. Rose was sure he would never tell Jill either, but Rose would eventually get around to that.
“You still got it in you, Eddie. So proud. I thought maybe the crowd here would have softened you up.” She gave another smile. “If you know what I mean.”
Only the one in my pants, Hathaway, but that’s only for Liss’s eyes.
Don’t even get me started on your perverted jokes. We all know nothing’s there. Lissa’s just too nice to say so.
Rose had gotten a call from Sydney asking for advice about some publicity that Jill seemed to have gotten herself into. She knew that Sydney was frustrated about the Moroi, mostly because she didn’t want to lose her job or get into trouble. Rose knew that Sydney was the best choice for Jill, and she needed to help her.
Rose had scheduled a trip to Palm Springs in the hopes of meeting up with Jill and the group to discuss what was going on. They couldn’t possible be safe when Jill was flashing her face to paparazzi. Okay, modeling. Whatever. Her flight had taken a few hours, and when she reached the ground she was happier than she could have been. Rose hated planes ever since she was Shadow-Kissed. A major headache planted itself into her head everytime.
She took a cab to Adrian’s apartment, where Sydney said Jill would be.
What the fuck do you want, Hathaway?
Always such a bad attitude. Do you have a decent bone in your flimsy body?
Rose had been up way too late the past few days. She was always taking care of Lissa when Spirit decided to leak through her attitude, and then there was Adrian. She cared for him, she really did, but at the same time, she was so confused with what her heart wanted. In the back of her head, it would always be Dimitri. But he was Strigoi now… and she would never tell Adrian this. He meant too much to her. He comforted her.
Rose was walking—okay, sneaking – to Adrian’s dorm even though it was past curfew. He wouldn’t be expecting her, and she hoped that he’d be awake when she knocked on the door. It was warm and bright outside, since the sun just started to peak out from the mountains looming in the background. She shivered and pulled her small jacket higher on her shoulders, quickening her pace. At last, when she reached Adrian’s dorm, she snuck past the front desk and up the flight of stairs to reach her destination.
The dim lighting in the hall helped Rose to blend in case someone decided to take a small midnight stroll. She knocked lightly on the door as so no-one would hear her. “Come on,” she murmured.
