This discussion... confession, whatever you wanted to call it was going nowhere fast. Baya was only becoming more frustrated and upset, and Reid didn't know how many ways he could explain this before she gave in. He felt like crap as she tore his reasoning apart and made him feel like an ass. It made sense to him, and even if it didn't to her, he'd decided to keep things from her to keep her safe.
"There are only a select number of people who are allowed to really know the details," he offered, keeping it a bit vague for now. "Yes, everyone knows the legends, but only we know everything that goes along with it." He could only imagine how fake this all sounded, and he was starting to realize the consequences of having pulled her along like this. It was going to take some extra effort to make her believe. "I'm not trying to scare you," he added, calmly though he was growing worried. "Or make fun of you. I'm trying to come clean, even if it makes you more upset now. I know I lied before, and I swear, I'm trying to fix that, but what do I gain, really, from lying about something like this?"

Baya still wasn't understanding, or rather maybe she wasnt letting herself understand yet because she wasnt sure if she could believe him that he wasn't lying to her again. But why would he make up a lie like this? How much more pleasure could he possibly get from humiliating her? And why did his eyes look like he was being so honest...
"Why am I allowed to know then? Why pick me to tell if you had to do so much work to become my friend before you felt close enough to actually say it? And how is it that not everyone knows if this is true? I dont really think that no one else in the tribe has figured this out if what you're saying is actually true. I mean I never noticed myself getting furry" She said frustrated with the man in front of her.
She shook her head as he asked what he'd gain from lying to her about something like this. "I dont know, thats the part I cant figure out...but seriously Reid...there are vampires and you turn into a wolf? " She said shaking her head again but looking at him with a hint of curiousity. "That can't really happen..right?"
