I agree, CG, saying his HEA, mean that he wasn't happy with Wellsie and we know he was. I'm calling her (and I think it is the same one y'all are saying) his HEA-II, as in happiness part-two. Since he was happy before and, hopefully soon, he will be happy again. I hate seeing him hurting..you know?
Not sure about Manny...but then again, the SV owes Payne for keeping her in stasis. Maybe, him becoming will be a gift.
Okay, I've been rereading the BDB and I had a funny thought. What if the SV gave the gift of allowing the vampire side to take over...be predominate, instead of the human side? What if, for Manny and Payne, she kisses him on the forehead and a few days later...the change starts. He goes through the transition, so it is a bit different, a gift, but a gift he must prove his worth and survive....
