Robin searched for her "Comfort" programming and found it inadequate for a vampire. She exhaled and lifted her head, putting a hand on Liam's shoulder. Hopefully he wouldn't tear her arm off. "Liam, you've been through some terrible things; whatever is wrong with Alvin won't affect her fully until she's much older. My prognoses are simply on the realistic side; people with various diseases can live much longer than their physicians prescribe and Alvin is no different."
She pulled her hand back after a moment. "However, on the subject of the choice I expect you will be offering, I have sufficient data to suggest she will likely take you up on it in a few years, at least, or when she is twenty-five at most. She doesn't want the ship to fall into the wrong hands; and she has mentioned to Ishmael that she wouldn't mind being on the sea for eternity."
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
