• first and foremost, and this honestly goes with all verses, erik is NOT dating kinana!! this whole idea happened so quickly. firstly, he doesn’t warm up to relationships quickly, so that alone doesn’t make sense to me. and there’s a lot of other details about this ship that rub me the wrong way, like that fact that she spent most of her life as his snake…. i believe this ship could exist with lots and lots and lots and lots of development and other conditional reasons being met, but i honestly prefer them to be viewed as strictly platonicon this blog. so basically––– don’t assume they’re dating, or that he’d be interested in dating her.
• speaking of “dating”––––––! i’ll also include here that, he won’t be interested in dating anyone during my main verse anyways, because he currently has a secret ( emphasis on the secret ) fondness of a specific natsu ( @ignicity ). so he will not be looking to pursue anyone else romantically in this verse, nor will he pursue any other natsus in different verses!!all other ships with erik will take place is separate, sub-verses.
So can someone explain to me why out of all these tests- including groundbreaking highly specific blood work for blood clots and a heart attack - was the most expensive test a pregnancy test that I could have done for myself for $1?
This isn’t a highly specific pregnancy blood test, no. This was sticking a pregnancy test in a cup of pee. I could get this test for $1, but if I wanted to go all out, I could have picked up two high end pregnancy tests at the drug store for $19. There is no way a hospital that buys these tests in bulk should be charging this much.
And it was more expensive than an EKG or two chest xrays.
And they do this on every woman who comes into the ER. They don’t even ask or tell you they’re doing it, they just do it. So it’s not like this is a rare test.
Summary: Reader has
been in Florida visiting a friend and is on her way home to Lawrence, Kansas,
when a vampire is following her.

So this is a series that I published on Wattpad
like six months ago, but I didn’t like Wattpad so much, that’s why I started my
Tumblr account. I’ve decided to publish the series here too, but I’ve changed
it a little. I don’t know how many parts there is yet, since I’ve changed it,
but there will be over twenty, that I know. Hope you all like it.
I sat at the bus station in Miami, Florida and
waited for the bus that would take me from Florida to Atlanta, Georgia. I had
been in Miami for two weeks at my friend Melanie Springfield place; we went to
medical school together. I had a great time, I had met a lot of old classmates
and we had been out and we had a lot of fun together, but now it was time to go
home to Lawrence, Kansas again.
It was about half past two in the afternoon when the
bus came. I took my two suitcases and put them in the bus luggage compartment
and then I stood in the queue to get going on the bus. When it was my turn, I
showed the ticket and went and sat down next to a window so that I could look
out. After riding for about an hour the bus stopped to pick up more passengers.
“Can I sit here?” asked a tall man with
black hair, green eyes and a mustache.
“Yes.” I answered shortly. I didn’t like
to have someone next to me when I went by bus, but since it was a tour bus and
it was almost full, I had no choice.
“Where are you going?” asked the man
sitting next to you.
“Atlanta.” I responded. I really had no
desire to talk to him; I wasn’t so fond of talking to people I didn’t know.
