“Yeah..” He sighs, “..it’s not related to her recent behavior though. And it’s nothing like the pills I have to take, hers are more for migraines,” he explains briefly.
“Ah..” After it processes, she apologizes and asks for Peter to continue.
He nods, “Right..so, she’s been..rather..irritable lately, more than usual. And she always seems to be tired..even if she’s slept-in later than I have..” He continues, explaining the other symptoms to his grandmother.
Veronica stands there, intriguingly listening to her grandson while he’s explaining. A faint smile forms on her face, the more he described, the more she narrowed it down to two things.
After explaining all he could, Peter notices her smile, “Veronica..?” He asks, perplexed, “Why..are you smiling like that..?”
“Oh? Ohh, heh..my apologies dear,” she says, smiling more, “It’s just..there are two possibilities to what might actually be happening to miss Darling.”
“Two..? Are they..good?” He asks.
“If they weren’t, would I be smiling?” Veronica asks back. He actually had to think about it and she narrows her eyes, “No. The answer is no, Peter.”
He smiles nervously, “R-Right..so..what exactly are these..possibilities?”
“Well, she has similar symptoms that Binnie had received when she was in her human-to-vampire transitional stage.” She continues, “The vomiting, fatigue, and soreness are all common for a young human’s first experience with vampirism. So, it’s possible she might be turning.”
“Ha..! That’s impossible, Veronica. She’s already a vampire,” he tells her, then mumbles to himself, “And..I think I would’ve remembered turning her..”
“Uhuh..sure she is. Now the other possibility…” She looks over at the door, then back at Peter, “..is that she could be..pregnant.”
Mikayla and Peter freeze as their eyes widen, she looks over at Veronica, “What…?!” She says in unison with Peter.
