Lianne frowned. The idea of free running for her was to be alone and feel free. With Victoria trailing her, that was not exactly being accomplished. She stared at Mathias defiantly. "No. Victoria will stay. I've been doing this for a long time and I assure you, I will be safe. What I do when I run is my own business. Now, I you will excuse me, I will go. On. My. Own."
She was stressed and she didn't want anyone dictating her every move. While she put on an outward appearance of being cool about it, she lost it when Mathias stepped in. Perhaps it was because he already knew her childishness or perhaps because the stress had finally cut what control she had over herself, but whatever the reason was, she was not happy with his decision and she was showing it. Sure, she might still be young as a vampire, but she has had enough experience of the world for her to know what she should and should not be doing. Her frustration at being looked at and treated as a child was slowly rubbing her raw. Of course, her parents cared and protected her, but they didn't watch her every move. They didn't always have to say what she could and could not do.
"Look. I don't need you telling me what I should be doing every step of the way. I'm not a mindless bumbling infant. I can think for myself as well as any vampire out in the world," she said more sharply than she intended, partially because she remembered how differently her parents treated her from how she was being treated now. "If I make mistakes, I bear them and learn from them. Yes, I appreciate your concern, but stop. Treating. Me. Like. A stupid. Child!" Her hands formed into fists beside her. Parkour was the one thing her parents never touched and he had absolutely no right to do the same. "If Victoria is going to run, it's because she wanted to, not because she is going to keep an eye on me. It's all pointless if she does!"
