Caine let out a low growl. “He’s doing it again!”
Alana frowned. “What are you talking about?”
“That pup! He’s staring at me again.”
“Correct me if I’m wrong but can’t he understand you?”
“Yeah, he understands me just fine. He’s just choosing to ignore me.”
“Maybe if you stopped snapping at him and-”
“Look, he’s oozing off the chair again. There he goes! There he goes! Catch him!”
They both reached for the puppy at the same time but were seconds too late as he landed on the floor with a plop. And for the umpteenth time he tried to scrambled back into the chair with little success. Caine watched in silence as Alana reached down and patted the puppy on the head as she made little soothing sounds in the back of her throat.
“Where do you think he came from?”
“Don’t know. And he’s not talking. I’m pretty sure if we leave him outside he can find his way back home.”
“Duncaine!”
Chuckling Caine teasingly pinched her chin. “I was just playing, princess.”

“It’s rude to put your feet up on other people’s furniture.”
“As if they can tell the fucking difference.”
“Caine!” Widening her eyes she motioned toward the puppy who was now sniffing around his boots. Widening his own eyes he copied her movements.
“What the hell are you doing?” Swallowing a chuckle he watched her eyes almost bug out of her head. “Jesus, you’re easy to tease.”
Rolling her eyes she looked down at her hands. Twiddling her thumbs she cleared her throat. “Caine?”
“Yeah?”
“Since I’m a Lycan now will I do the whole changing thing?”
“Uh huh.”
“When?” She looked over at him when her question was met with silence. She gave a start when she saw he was looking at her through slitted eyes. “What?”
“I’m just trying to figure out if you’re going to go ballistic on me or not if I answer the question.”
“Look, I know I haven’t been the most pleasant of people to be around but you have to cut me some slack. All this is unexpected. What I thought I knew about myself is completely skewed. How would you react in the same situation?”
“I’d have killed someone already. And to answer your question,” he replied over the chewing of the pup. Alana had put out some leftovers for him, “I don’t know when you’ll change. I’ve never come into contact with a half-breed before.”
“A half-breed?”
Caine inhaled. Indignation made her scent ripen. As if he needed another reason to want to bury his face in her neck. Shoving up from the couch he headed toward the door.
“Where are you going?”
“To The Monastery.”

SNAG-0253

“I beg your pardon?”
“Oh man princess. It turns me on when you get so prim and proper. You have no freakin’ idea.” Grimacing, he adjusted the front of his pants.
“Caine…you can’t be serious. You can’t go there. At least not by yourself. Take Nolan with you.”
Nolan looked up from strumming the guitar. “What?”
Sighing Alana shook her head before grabbing Caine’s arm. “You can’t go in there by yourself.”
“I can’t take Nolan. Someone has to be here to look after you.”
“I am not a child.”
“No, you’re his-”
Caine snarled causing the puppy, who had been staring intently up at him, to run under the couch and for Nolan to roll his lips in as he went back to playing the guitar. A shiver went through Alana at the sound but she quickly shook it off. Just as Caine gently shook her hand off of his arm.
“Stay in the apartment Alana. Lock the door after me. I’ll be back in a few hours. Alana…” He stared down at her with an unreadable expression before shaking his head. Brushed his hand over her cheek he quickly left.

“Hello Stoney Mcstoner. Did you not hear what was going on? He’s about to go into a den of vampires.”
“That’s vampyres with a y and they don’t have dens, they have clans. And I almost have all the kinks worked out in this melody.”
“Excuse me! Is that man not your alpha?”
“Yep.”
“So, I would think you would be more concerned about-”
“It’s obvious that Caine wants us to stay here Alana. He’s our alpha and he’s given us strict orders to stay in the apartment. As you’re bodyguard I think…Jesus! I was wondering how long he was going to stay on the landing. Listen, we give him a head start and then follow him. I think I know where The Monastery is.”
Alana blinked as he put down the guitar and grabbing her face twisted it to the left and then the right. She slapped at his hands as she wiped at her face.
“What are you doing?” she demanded as he walked down the hall and into the bathroom. His voice drifted back to her.
“You’re going to need a makeover. There’s no way you won’t attract attention as soon as you step in the door but at least it’ll give you some sort of cover. Now,” he said with a huge grin as he waved a liner pencil at her, “let’s paint the canvas.”
“You stay away from me Nolan!”

SNAG-0255

“I look stupid!”
“For the last time you don’t look stupid! I put on makeup all the time when I get on stage with the Shapeshifters. I know what I’m doing. Now, what’s the plan?”
Alana focused on her feet as she recited the plan back to him. The boots were at least a size too big and he had instructed her to leave them unbuckled.
“We go in, keep a low profile and if the fur starts flying I run out of there.”
“See? Simple! What can go wrong right?”
“Sure.” Nolan yanked her back as her foot caught on a loose floorboard. “What can go wrong?”

    “I think just about everyone’s seen my cock.”
    “And what a fine cock it is.”

    *snicker*

    Oh man, Ulrich and Nikita are so much like Caine and Alana… crazy. Sheer crazy. Hmm… can’t wait to see this discussion. And what is going on with Alana and Nolan? It’s the rival pack, isn’t it? Or worse, Ethan *shudders*

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!! Man, I was just thinking that just about everyone has seen his goods! Not that he’s ashamed or anything! LOL!!

    I KNOW!! I was writing them and suddenly I was like: “D’oh!” Discussion should be fun times! I’ve already taken the pics for it so it just has to be written! *rubs hands together*

    Yeah…not fun times for those two…AT ALL!! Frown

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL Azzy! I had to toss that in there! I mean Caine is ALWAYS walking around naked flashing his johnson!

    He makes me happy too! I just want to mush his face! I can’t wait to get him in Nolan together. At least I HOPE to get him and Nolan together!Thinking

    “Stoney Mcstoner” “secret squirrel meetings” *snickers*

    Oh man, where did Alana and Nolan end up?

    The vamp(y)res are very still and formal compared to the Lycan.

    Ack! You can delete the first one, Phoenix- I didn’t think it posted.

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Oh man! I deleted the wrong one! *sigh* But I read it. Everything should be center aligned. What browser are you using? It looks fine in both Firefox and IE. And I do so love this layout! Frown

    LOL!!! I make up stuff like that all the time when I talk. ‘Latey McLate’ for someone who’s always late. ‘Douchey, McDouche’ for someone being a douchebag! I have fun with that! Razz

    Somewhere they SHOULD NOT be! Which makes one wonder why are they there?

    Yeah, yeah they are. I wanted to show that. Aaand I have to get to your story! So behind! Gah!

    I was using Safari (and after a check, it still seems to be askew in Safari) but I’m in Firefox now. I wouldn’t worry about it too much though- If no one has mentioned it by now then you probably don’t have too many readers who use Safari as their default browser. I’ll just have to remember to use Firefox in order to optimize my viewing experience. Grin

    Where did they tell their cab driver that they wanted to go? Was there a miscommunication? OR did the driver recognize them and dump them somewhere shady?

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Huh! I’m gonna have to check out this safari! I heard/read someone else talking about it! Why? Because I’m a geek!Razz This layout probably wasn’t optimized for safari! Bugger! Frown

    They told the cabbie they wanted to go The Monastery…and I’ll take the second statement for two hundred dollars!!Razz

    Not the next prompt but the one after will delve into it. I really have to learn to use headers like you do with times and stuff! Because in my head all this happens around the same time(for the most part).

    Off to catch up on DBL!! YAY!

    Ooo, we’re going to get a timeline? I always just figured that this story happened over the span of a few weeks.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Yeah, I think so because I’m going to start splitting some characters up and hopping back and forth!

    A couple of months…like seriously two! Caine and Alana got to know each other when Caine was pretending to be a ‘dog’ for a couple of weeks!Razz

    Oh that cannot be good for Alana and Stoney McStoner…I loved that scene with Julius! He is so adorable it makes me want sim puppies!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!! Oh god! That nickname is SO going to follow Nolan around! And it doesn’t even faze him!

    I was trying to pose the pup and he just kept moving so I went with it! Gotta love Sim animals!Razz

  5. Kayvon says:

    Good to see you back! I like how you picked ‘Simple’ prompt for this one. As if anything involving Alana and Caine has ever been- LOL! Caine gave them both the simplest of instructions – now what could possibly go wrong with Nolan McStoney the helm and Alana following? I just hope they took the time to find a simple solution to keep the puppy safe! This was great! And with all the trouble the lot was to you (not simple at all I presume) -it was really worth it! The tension is building like a mother!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Thanks Kayvon!Smile It’s good to be back! I missed it! Haha! I had to smile when I picked it myself ’cause yeah…nothing’s EVER been simple with those two. Poor Nolan! Trying to prove himself! *shakes head* It just blew up in his face.

    Julius is safe and sound in the apartment. I think!Razz

    Giiirrrlll…it was a lot I built!! LOL! So it was a bad piece of CC! And every time it crashed I would say: “That’s it! I’m done!” only to go back to rebuilding an hour or so later! *rolls eyes!

    Isn’t it though? Wink And I like how you noticed all the contradictions within the prompt!Razz

    Aw, this was great. I really enjoyed this one, Phoenix! The beginning was cute with wittle puppy! And I’m glad to see Alana and Cane being more and more comfortable with each other. Nice butt shot of Cane, btw! Grin

    Also, I can’t help but feel a little worried for Alana and Nolan. Hope they don’t get in too much trouble! Smile

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Smile Thanks Nora! I enjoyed writing. It felt good coming back to Alana and Caine and actually have them TALK. Hahaha!!! Caine has no shame! None whatsoever! I love it!

    Yeah…good things aren’t going to come of that…or at least I don’t think so!

    Every time I start thinking Nolan is a bit more with it than I thought he was, he goes back to getting himself (and Alana) in a bit of a quandary. I don’t think they are safe to be left alone together any more.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    The thing about Nolan is that he wants so badly to get out of his brother’s shadow…and he feels guilty about that. Poor kid! And no, if they get out of this with limbs intact I don’t think Caine will be leaving Alana with Nolan again.

    What hit me the hardest, and with the most clarity, was Caine’s reaction to the ‘glide’ (did I get that right?) in the club. His anger. Fuck the allure, stop it now. The strange formal atmosphere, decadence, almost prissy in its camoflauge (sp?), set up against his raw energy. And, I’m going to say it, an animal sense of honor. This is what I do and I don’t do that and don’t mess with me.

    Ulrich and Nikita – should I feel sorry for him? I do but I’m not sure I should.

    I love the whole first sequence – puppies get to me!

    Beautiful, evocative writing! This is one of the strangest and most fabulous pieces you have done!

    And yeah…gorgeous, gorgeous GORGEOUS shots!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Thanks Beth. Yeah, that’s pretty much it in a nutshell. He knows if he gets sucked underneath of an allure he’ll have a heck of a time getting back out…and she’s not who he wants anyways so it makes it that much easier. I can just imagine them trying to give him meds when he was in the asylum. Fun times I’m sure!Razz

    I feel sorry for the both of them. Their story will sort of interweave with this one and things will be revealed about their past.

    PUPPIES!!!!Grin

    Oh wow!! *blushes* Thanks! I had a time of it actually since I wanted to get each character just right.

    LOL! Thanks! I really didn’t do anything to the shots. I just uploaded them onto the server instead of photobucket and had some resizing issues.

    Oh!!!
    I hope Alana and Nolan are fine…. something tells me they are in some kind of trouble!!!!

    I can’t wait to see what happens next… I’m off to read next chapter!!!
    Gorgeous pics as usual!!!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Yep! Trouble of the deadly kind. Frown

    Thanks Sandy! I’m just glad to be visiting my Lycans again! I missed them!!

    Any sentance that ends with “What can go wrong?” always means something AWESOMELY BAD will happen Grin yay.

    You have a fine cock, Caine. Be proud. Grin A methadone clinic for vampires. That sounds like it’d be an awesome sitcom.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!! I know right!? But I had to toss it in there!

    I think he was probably a little shocked. No one usually says crap like that to him!Razz It would be like House. But without the doctors, and the hospital but plenty of blood and craziness! Good times!Wink

  11. Emily says:

    Ooooohh! Cliffhanger! I’d like to think that Alana and Nolan will be all right but something tells me otherwise! Grin

    The amount of humor you put into a semi-serious story is just incredible, I mean, this is no joke but I can’t help but laugh! All your characters are so enjoyable, you just never know what the heck they are gonna say next.

    Fabulous update, on to read more!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL! Yeah, something!Razz And you know me and the cliffhangers!Razz

    Thanks Emily! I just go with the flow of the characters. Sometimes they surprise me!

  12. Mao says:

    OMG, that last part with Alana and Nolan is the best. OMG. These two are like those youthful detective novels with the kids always getting into trouble. xD I can’t wait to see how they work their way out of it…

    “Oh man princess. It turns me on when you get so prim and proper. You have no freakin’ idea.” LOL! Caine, really, that’s NOT the way to win her heart. Sheesh! But so funny.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha! I know! Jeez man! Stay he says! And what do they do? Go!! *shakes head* Gotta love them though!

    Caine just pops off with whatever is in his head. He has no filter! NONE!

  13. Sinclair says:

    O.M.G. So Alana and that insanely adorable Nolan are totally going to get chomped down on. Horrible idea. Horrrrrrrible. But that Ulrich guy seems like he’s a pain in the ass.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Insanely adorable Nolan? Ahahaha!!! Oh god! He’d have such a fit if he heard that! But…I agree!Razz

    You don’t like Ulrich? Oh man he’s awesome! More involving him will come!Smile
