Ava grumbled something under her breath, but he ignored it and headed toward town, trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. It was difficult without the Veil, but that was something Tiernan had sworn off long ago, along with the ridiculous contact lenses that the majority of his people favored. They wanted to fit in with humans. He had no such desire. 

Still, when they approached a motel set back off the highway outside of town, he figured it wouldn’t hurt to be a little less intimidating. He was a bit out of practice, but managed to pull the Veil over him a bit—just enough to smooth his scar and make him seem a little smaller, a little more forgettable. In that moment, he envied Katherine’s gift of near-invisibility but figured this was better than nothing. 

“Whoa,” Ava murmured.

“Shut up.” 

“You look kind of like Michael Cera.” 

“I said, shut up.” He peered at her sidelong. “Is that the guy from Zombieland?”

“No, that’s Jesse Eisenberg,” she said, tilting her head. “Although, now that you mention it, you kind of look a little like him, too.” Her eyes widened. “Wait a second. You saw Zombieland?” She seemed stunned that he would ever watch a movie. 

“I do have a day off once in a while, you know.” He strode toward the motel office without looking back. 

“But Zombieland? It’s not very, well . . . you, is it?”

He stopped in his tracks. “Not me? Who doesn’t like zombies?” 

“Oh.” Ava blinked at him. “Of course you’d root for the zombies. Makes perfect sense now.”

“It’s not their fault they’re zombies.”

As if Tiernan couldn’t be more adorable! Of course he’s right! Who would want to be a zombie voluntarily , right? Totally not their fault!
