Things That Are Shit

I can’t get Hoyt’s words outta my mind. Calling my blood shit.

When I think about my blood, I think about its healing nature. Its way of connecting me to the man that I love. At least that’s how it used to be. But lately, it’s like the little rope tied to him at one end, and me at the other? It’s fraying or unraveling. All the fibers are coming apart and now we’re just a mess of string that used to be something strong.

When I think about things that are shit, I think of my daddy’s beatings. I think of what I did to Hoyt, with that guy at Fantgasia. I think of whoever or whatever beat Jason near to his death.

But my blood? My blood ain’t shit. Hoyt Fortenberry, you could not have been more wrong. My blood just saved someone’s life. Maybe it’s my fault that the rope is coming apart, but it ain’t my blood’s fault.

There are things that are shit, and then there are things that are not shit.

I think Hoyt just dosent want to get addicted. He knows how damaging it can be. I also think he wants you to know thats not the reason hes with you.

You really should have more patience with Hoyt. Hes human, not only that but the boy grew up with one crazy ass momma. Think about that for a second, your both in the same boat. Your learning how to be a vampire and Hoyt is learning how to be a man for the first time in his life. I am not saying hes a 100% right all the time but dang girl ease up a little on the little fleshbag. Concepts like vampire blood are foreign to him, he cant comprehend the true meaning of what the blood is and the power it holds. All he has to go on is what they say on TV that its a new drug and is more addicting than heroin. He still sees the world in black and white terms. So try to be patient, yes I know its sucks (no pun intended) that you have to be the mature one but Jess baby, this boy loves you, truly loves you. He doesn't see you as a conquest or to fulfill some vamp sex fetish, he loves that lovable funny goofy small town red head with the most adorable smile from here to Kentucky. Stop focusing on what you dont have and appreciate what you do have. Its hard but you and Hoyt are meant to be if only for then next 80 years or so.

I think Hoyt just didn't mean to say shit... he didn't find a better way to describe how vampire blood affects him. (The ways a drug does) Because that's what it is to him if he takes too much of it. And the second thing is that I suppose he wants to be a strong man: healing without help, not crying about an injury and maybe he thinks drinking too much of your blood makes him look like a weak whiny boy. That's just how it goes in relationships, men don't understand women, women don't understand men and I think that's not gonna change through the ages, we have to get along with this... ;) By the way, helping Jason was a great thing to do and maybe you and Hoyt will get closer again through this situation.
Best wishes from Germany. :)
