Daily Prompt: didn’t look up a word

Last night, I wrote A LOT in my work in progress. So far this year, I’ve written 6 chapters. At round 2000 words each chapter, usually more, that’s about 12000 words. I wrote a sentence last night that I whole heartedly believe in. Therefore, rather that look up a word and find a passage, I’m just sharing the passage. See if you can figure out what sentence I like the most.

From (working title) Mayoria:

He gave his mother a wide-eyed stare. “Why did that happen to you?”

She did not break his gaze. “For the same reason Amanda became addicted to your blood: because sex with your father was better after I had his blood.”

It was almost impossible for vampires to blush, but Robert felt as if his face were growing warm and red. “Oh.”

“This is actually quite common with a full-blooded vampire and a non-full blood vampire. No one really talks about it as it is usually to help with sex. Parents don’t want to talk about it to their children, though we should.”

Robert looked away and allowed his thoughts to run away from him. He wasn’t too keen on knowing about his parents exploits, but he had to admit, if he had known what could happen, he would not have done what he did. Still, “It would have been better to understand this could happen, but ignorance does not free me of consequences.”

“Then why did you run away to work?”

He ducked his head and shook it. “I was not prepared to face her. What if she hates me for my actions?”

“Then she hates you. But Marla and Mindy did not need to be left alone in these circumstances.”

He looked up sharply at his mother. “Why does Marla know?”

Isabella gave him a quizzical look. “You didn’t tell her?”

“I told Mindy and only because she figured out something was wrong.”

She stared at her son dispassionately. “Oh? I would say you made a series of mistakes with this, Robert. You better hope those women forgive you for being such a dolt.”
