“All in due time.  You’re one of the most impatient creatures I’ve ever met. It takes time to make preparations.” His face became serious. “I can’t just go on spur of the moment trips anymore.  Between luggage x-ray and security checks it’s very hard to travel with a vampire in a trunk.

Be sure to check out Six Sentence Sunday for some great excerpts!
