Head priest Albin was in a deep conversation over the phone line, but when Anne entered his quarter he managed to excuse himself and directed his concentration back to her. "Sorry for that. We've been a bit busy at the moment. Anyway, welcome back to Vegas, Sarah Anne Nova. I believe that the journey was a pleasant one? Please, have a seat," he motioned for Anne to take the seat in front of his table.
"That's just a joke, actually. I've heard it from Van Helsing. It's tough...your boy, that is. I don't know much about children, but I can say as much that those monsters are a bad influence to your child," he let out a deep sigh. "I know that you aren't among us anymore, but be sure that you will always be one of us, as we are your brothers and sisters. You don't need to worry about your living here. We'll take care of you and William's expenses until things calmed down."
He stopped a bit when he mentioned William's name. Showing inquisitive eyes, he spoke in a lower voice. "...it's about William, actually. Your boy...Van Helsing didn't want to say anything else. But is it true that his father had died? Anne, you didn't tell us about his father. Who is it actually? Is it...is it actually Alexander?" he chuckled a bit. His last question was a joke, of course.
Joseph couldn't put the boy away from his mind. He seemed a bit...off, as if tired of everything. Smiling, he patted William's back gently. "Now now, don't be too sad. Your mother will be back soon. Let's wait for her and be a good boy, okay?" he stood up and walked a bit farther. When he lifted his hands up, the pigeons started to gather even though he had no food to give. "Hahaha...look at them. Come here, I'll introduce you to my friends," he waved for William to join him. He didn't know if this could cheer the boy, but he hoped so.
