“…beside all that, I will give you centuries of life, free you from the need to sleep, and give you the might of a dozen flaring limbs,” said her lush lips, while her emerald eyes hinted at much, much more.

Yet, her mannerism weren’t like most of the Rittenhouse Square kiddies in the various boarding schools he went to and dated girls from.
