"I do. I really, really do." Sadie said, a fire growing in her eyes that was rare nowadays. "I would ask Dean, or Sam, or Grace, but I know what they’d say. They’d shoot me down. And I’m just- I’m sick of having to hide behind people because I can’t defend myself, you know? I just want to be able to do something. I hate feeling so weak, so defenseless. I just want to be able to protect myself, to not have to rely on other people to do it for me.”
Adrian watched her curiously. He could hear the interest in her voice and he was quite surprised that she willingly wanted to do this. “You know, training isn’t easy.” He warned, pushing himself off the wall and starting to walk slowly down the street. “I understand..” He nodded slightly, shoving his hands in his pockets.
"I’m going out of town for a couple of weeks, but I can still give you my number." He mumbles to the red haired girl in front of him, carefully scribbling down one of his cellphone numbers.
I’m assuming that means “I’m not born here but I’ve been here long enough to be classified a local”
You’re quite right.
Nice to meet you, Adrian. Are you a local around here?
I guess you could say that now..
Erm… I’m Amelia, by the way.
Pleasure. I’m Adrian.
Sorry… where did you learn to play like that? It’s really good.
It doesn’t really matter. It was a long time ago now…
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. I just heard the music and was… curious.
S’alright. I just didn’t expect anyone to come in..
Sadie nodded, reinforcing her statement, grateful that he didn’t try and interrogate her. The fact that she knew he was a hunter seemed to frustrate him, but she wasn’t sure why. “You went on a hunt with Dean that one time. You guys got hurt. That’s how I know.” A thought occurred to her, and she decided it was better to get it over with and ask- after all, the worst he could say was no. “Can you- would you teach me? How to hunt, I mean.” She averted her eyes after asking, as though she were embarrassed.
He clicked his tongue. Maybe Dean told her… He hoped Dean had told her, otherwise he would have a lot of explaining to do. To both her and his father. “Yeah… Right..” He agreed, glancing up at her face as he picked at his jeans trying to figure out how to make sure she didn’t say anything about it. His head snapped up and he looked at her quite shocked. “Teach you?” He echoed; her question rattling in his brain. “To hunt?” He asked again. It was hard to become a hunter. Well, at least it had been for him. His father had been merciless with his training and had told Adrian that he never did anything right when doing an exercise. He didn’t want that for Sadie. “Uh… If you want me to..” He mumbled, shrugging slightly.
