“How many times have we been here Dedrick and yet we still get lost!”

Winona shot a glance over her shoulder. “No one likes a backseat driver Dante. Is everything alright Dedrick?”

“Yeah, I just have a lot on my mind right now,” he said as he pulled up to the curb. “It’s nothing Nona.”

“Well, I’m not taking the blame for being late,” Rob piped up from the back seat.

“No one asked you to, you fucking pussy,” Dante snapped.

“Hey!”

Dedrick shared a look with his sister then looked away before they started laughing.

“I hear the car now Vivian.” Jenna looked across the room at the woman who was stretched on the couch half asleep.

“Thank God! I could pass out right here and sleep for hours.”

“Turning into one of those Vamps that you’re always hanging around?” Lloyd drawled.

“I actually do something besides play pool.”

‘Yeah, exactly what do you do? Or should I say who?”

“Bite me!”

“Yeah, I’m pretty sure you’re into that kinky shit now.”

“Oh shut up!”

“Why? Allowing someone to gnaw on your neck wears you out huh?”

“Lloyd. Vivian. Enough.”

Odin finished sketching then slowly picked himself up from the floor.

“You two argue so much it’s a wonder you haven’t popped out a couple of pups.”

“Yeah, that’s not going to happen,” Vivian said around a yawn.

“Nope. Ever since she’s started mingling with the Vamps she looks down on us…what is it they call us? Oh, that’s right.” He lined up a shot. “Mongrels. She’s too good for a lowly Lycan.”

“I’m too good for a lowly Omega who thinks he’s a beta.”

Lloyd slowly put down his pool cue. “What the fuck did you just say?”

“Okay!” Jenna clapped her hands and cleared her throat. “How does everyone like the way I redecorated the place?”

“It looks good babe,” Odin said as he sent a wink her way. “You do know we’re not going to stay here right?”

“But I like the view!”

“It’s just a meeting place. No one-“

Everyone in the room paused and tilted their heads when they heard the sound of footsteps and heavy breathing. A few seconds later the fire escape door bursts up and Dedrick and Rob tried shouldering past each other before tumbling into the room like a couple of pups.

“I beat you fair and square Dedrick.”

“That you did Rob. That you did.” Dedrick and Odin shared a look. As second in command there were few people who could beat him. Apparently he’d felt sorry for the kid. He was younger then the rest of them but he was zealous. They would need that zeal to complete the course they had set for themselves.

“Dedrick. Robert.”

“Alpha,” was said in unison then Robert looked around.

“Where are Dante and Nona?”

Odin cleared his throat when a dark looked crossed Dedrick’s face. Jenna laughed and he made a quick motion with his hand across his throat but, as usual, she ignored him.

“They’re probably somewhere making out. She’s in heat and Dante’s been trying to mate her for forever. He’s probably-“

“Okay…can we not talk about my baby sister’s sex life?”

“Better than talking about your nonexistent one,” Lloyd said as he racked up.

“One of these days Lloyd, I’m going to make you swallow your teeth.”

“But I’m so fond of them.”

Robert walked over to the elevator and pressed the button. The elevator started up with a clank and everyone turned to look when the door slid open. Nona and Dante were locked in a tight embrace and were completely oblivious to anything surrounding them. Dedrick cleared his throat. When that didn’t gain a reaction he coughed loudly. The two slowly pulled apart and he rolled his eyes when Dante’s hand cupped Nona’s ass before he looked up with a shit eating grin.

“Alpha. Jenna. Sorry we’re a little late. Lost track of the time.”

“We can see that,” Odin said with a knowing smile as he walked to stand behind his own mate. “Just don’t become so distracted thinking about sex that you become a liability to the rest of us.”

“Of course not Alpha,” Nona said as she pushed away from Dante and walked into the room. “It won’t happen again.”

“On your time,” Dante said hastily. “It won’t happen on your time right Nona? Nona?”

Robert sat on the edge of the couch until Vivian swung her legs off of the couch then he scooted closer to her. She spared him a glance before she looked across the room at where Dante and Nona were arguing quietly on the couch. Rob sighed then straightened when Jenna stepped into the center of the room. She shared a quick smile with everyone while Odin looked at her indulgently.

“Well, we all know why we’re here right? Of course you all know. It wouldn’t make any sense-“

“Jenna…” Dedrick said with a sigh as he rubbed at his neck. The woman could talk for hours about nothing. She had perfected the whole air head technique she used to gather information that sometimes she slipped into it unknowingly. Odin shot him a glare and Dedrick subsided. Odin and Jenna had been together since they were kids and he was very protective of her.

“Yes Jenna. We all know why we’re here.”

“Excellent. So, Odin’s finished sketching the club that the Vampyres hang at out. What’s it called Viv?”

“The Monastery.”

“Yeah, that place. We’ll hand out copies. If something goes down there we’ll all know the general layout.”

“And why would we need the layout?” Lloyd asked.

Odin motioned to Vivian. “Vivian, please tell us what you’ve discovered.”

Getting up Vivian joined Odin in the middle of the room. She seemed to glide across the room and her skin was as a pale and luminous as the moon that called to them. She had integrated herself into the Vampyre society per Odin’s instructions. She had even went so far as to sharpen her incisors into fangs.

“As you know I am not part of the inner circle,” she said. Her voice had a lyrical cadence to it that seemed almost hypnotic. Lulling. Dedrick caught himself leaning toward her and pulled back.

“However, rumor has it that he has been found. An invitation for a meeting was issued. It’s unknown if he will accept.”

“Is your source reliable Vivian?”

With a languid movement she brushed hair out of her face then covered her mouth as she gave a delicate yawn. “My apologies Alpha. I’m not used to being up at these hours now.”

“I understand. The source Vivian?”

“Yes, she is reliable. Victoria has taken me under her wing and the woman does love to complain. Duncaine Lancaster has been found and certain Vampyres want to join with him to take down Ethan Vanderwall.”

“We all want Ethan taken down…but we do not want Caine Lancaster to rise to power either. You will continue your assignment Vivian.  Try to work yourself into their inner circle.”

“Understood.”

“Whoa, whoa, whoa!” Rob said as he shoved his way between them. “I thought you said the last time was the final time she would go into their den?”

“Uh, wolves have den. Vampyres have clans,” Lloyd said just as Odin started to growl. “Not that that’s important, of course,” he said as he took a slow step back.

“Robert, it’s fine. I knew what I was getting into when I volunteered.” Vivian placed a calming hand on his shoulder but he shrugged it off.

“You keep going back in there and they’re going to realize something is off. Your scent, your family background-“

“All that has been taken care of pup,” Odin growled. “Do you really think that I would send one of my people in without doing everything to ensure they’ll come back out? Jenna was able to figure out a way to suppress her scent-“

“It really was simple. All I had to do-“

“I don’t care!” Rob snapped. Next thing he knew he was flying across the room. His head cracked hard against the wall.

Odin walked across the room and slowly crouched down to where Robert was slouched against the wall.

“If you ever disrespect my mate again I will rip out your throat. And if you question my judgment again I will break your fucking neck. Are we clear?” he asked with a snarl.

“You…clear…apologize,” Robert mumbled. Odin shook his head and stood.

“Help him to a chair so we can continue our meeting.”

“Odin! Look what you did to my wall! Did you have to throw him so hard?”

“He needs to learn. He’ll think twice about disrespecting you and questioning me. And I’ll  have the paneling fixed.”

“You better.”

Brushing his hand over her cheek he watched as Lloyd hefted Robert and dumped him in a chair. Lloyd squatted down and slapped at Robert’s face before holding up a hand.

“How many fingers am I holding up?”

“Eleven?”

Lloyd looked at his hand then back at Robert. “Rest up pup.”

“Does anyone else have any more questions?”

Vivian yawned again. “As we all know Victoria hates Lycans. I have a feeling that she’s playing both sides.”

“Keep a close eye on her. “

“And what of the rumored hybrids?”

Jenna came up behind him and wrapped an arm around his waist. “I’d like a look at them.”

He smiled. “Jenna, that’s you being a scientist but remember that they’re people.”

“But just imagine the possibilities. We’d be able to study their DNA and-“

“Turn them against us. It sounds like something Ethan would do.”

“”Hmm…I see your point. Good thinking Alpha.”

Odin chuckled. “Thanks mate.”

“I think we’re forgetting something here,” Dedrick said.

“And what’s that?”

“Just how are we going to get Caine?”

Odin smiled. “My mother didn’t just named me Odin because she liked the sound of it Dedrick. She said she always knew I was going to be smart and was born to be a leader.”

“Yes Odin but-“

“Rumor has it that he turned a woman. A half breed. And if that is true perhaps they’re mates.”

“Oookay! But-“

Jenna laughed and Odin run his hands through her hair before she walked across the room to stand before Dedrick.

She bent down and pressed a kiss to his forehead as a sign of affection.

“Don’t you know? Find the woman Dedrick. Catch the mate…cripple the man.”

*I added a sister blog for interview type things. It’s called On The Couch. Added a character bio link as well. FINALLY. It’s been sitting unpublished since May! O_o WIP! Links are in the header. Also added unscripted pics and whatnot. Sometimes some pics are too funny not to share!Smile

    Hoooo boy, this can’t be good news… Frown

    Hopefully all of this can get sorted out–I like these guys! They should be friends with the others and all go kick Ethan’s ass!

    …okay, so that’s a little too convenient. But in the meantime… *sits back and watches the drama begin!* Grin

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    No! Not good news at all! Frown But I couldn’t have all the Lycans hailing Caine as the new Alpha! There’s bond to be people who think they can do a better job(and probably can since they’ve been around Lycans all the time.)

    LOL!! The sad thing Van is…I like these guys too!! *rubs forehead* They were supposed to be this funky bunch(LOL @ the rap reference) but when I started writing…meh!

    LOL!! Yeah!! Drama, drama!! Should be good times! I don’t know since it’s not written yet!! LOL!!

    Thanks Van!!Smile

    Have I mentioned how AWESOME your site looks? It’s great!
    I actually read this last night, but had to go back because at 2am there was no way I could pick up who’s who. I’m getting a hang of it now… kind of. Grin It’s a good thing you introduced people who’re not necessarily bad guys, but who still wouldn’t welcome Caine, a kid straight from asylum, with open arms. Like, “hey, kid. how about you come here out of nowhere and be our leader?”, not gonna happen.
    Vivian is playing a very dangerous game there…

    Ups! If the get Alana, I’m not sure who’ll have it worse – she or them Smile.
    And, I’m sad, no Nolan and puppy dream team in this one :'(

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Oh hey thanks!!!Smile I figured this would be easier to navigate and less clutter. I switch layouts WAY to often but I’ll probably keep this one!

    And on the who’s who point…I’ve actually been working on a who’s who! It’s in the edit stage still but I should have that posted up soon. I know! It’s crazy how many people are running around! Blah! Razz Yeah man, that would have been crazy for everyone to welcome him back! Not real at all!
    Yes, she is. And she knows what the repercussions are if she gets caught!Frown

    LOL! I don’t know. At least they keep a tidy place! I know! No Nolan and Julius made me sad too!Frown Thanks for reading!

    [Reply]

    Meralgia Reply:

    See, I almost wish they’d catch Alana. Just for the drama, you know. I bet she’d make their life a living hell. Not to mention it’d be fun seeing them regret taking her, not just because of Caine’s rage, but because she can be quite abnoxious herself! Grin

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL!! I’m pretty sure they are going to catch her…it’ll just big a big old mess on everyone’s end of course!

    I love Alana’s little quirks. There’s nothing major but they’re sooo….her!Razz

  3. Sinclair says:

    Ooo Caine. Just cant catch a break. And are they sure they want to go after his woman? He cant handle her what makes them think they can? I hope theres a beatdown. Like she tore up Caine. FIGHT!!! WHOO

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Ha! He did a mini-break…at the beginning. Sorta!Razz No, I don’t think they realize just what he can do. Everyone thinks that it’s a myth or something but yeah…full on werewolf Caine is sorta scary!

    Hahaha!!! Yeah man!! Don’t forget we don’t know exactly what Alana can do either! Dun, dun, DUN!!!

    Grin

  4. Nora says:

    This bunch seems a little more bad ass than the other ones. I hope their plans of going after Caine doesn’t kick them in the butt…

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    I think it’s because they’ve always lived in a pack where else Caine hasn’t. They have that structure going on.

    We shall have to see!Thinking

    Uhhh time for some serious ass kicking
    I love this story, but I’m still a bit overwhelmed by the inane amount of characters, still trying to catch up with everything happening but I really like the way its heading :3
    And I feel sorry for poor Robert, though he really has a huge mouth confronting the alpha, poor git should know better

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha! yeah man! I don’t know know why I do this to myself! Fight scenes and I have a love/hate relationship.

    Oh man! I know. But wolves have packs. I couldn’t just NOT have packs! It would make me sad!Razz So, I did character bios!! YAY!! Fun times! Even more writing. Grin No worries! The story isn’t going anywhere! Still have a ways to go actually.

    I know! Poor fella. Hopefully that knocked some sense into him. Probably not though!

    And thanks for stopping by and reading! And leaving such a lovely compliment! Smile

    Oh man, I’m not sure they know what they are in for if they go after Alana, even if their place is tidier, it’s still probably not clean enough Razz

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    HA! So true! No place will be clean enough unless Alana scrubs it herself. I love that girl to death but she has some serious issues! O_o

    Shock oh my…. looks like Caine has more enemies!!not only Ethan is searching for him… You better watch your back Caine and your woman!!!

    Really intriguing group!! I can’t wait to find more of this pack… they are really something!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Yeah, we can’t have all the Lycans happy that Caine is back now can we? Besides, I always thought, in the back of my mind, that there had to be more people wanting to take Ethan down and now Caine is screwing up their plans!Razz

    Thanks Sandy!!

    I don’t know if my comment went through!!!
    AWesome chapter!! Very intriguing characters!

  10. S.B. says:

    So Odin thinks he’s destined for greatness…something about this group seems a bit delusional. We’re going to rule the world! delusional. Why exactly are they so keen on getting rid of Caine? Except for the obvious fact that he’s there. Even Odin’s pack members seem sort of clueless about WHY they’re taking on vampires, Ethan and Caine all at the same time.

    Fascinating writing! You really do evoke a growling pack of distracted dogs. Yeah Alpha I hear you LOOK A SQUIRREL what was that again you said?

    And your blog looks great!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Odin’s pack isn’t taking on the Vampyres. He wants to know what they know so he can use it. He’s been planning to take Ethan down for months…and then Caine comes along. He’s a roadblock that Odin is going to try and treat like a speed bump!Razz We’ll see how that goes!

    Caine really doesn’t know how to be in a pack. He’s been out of the loop for YEARS. He can’t just think that everyone wants him to be leader ya know?

    LOL!!! Thanks! That’s what I was going for in this piece. They all crack me up.

    Thanks Beth!Grin

  11. ~Drew says:

    I am finally caught up, only took months!(But I was away all summer, LOL!) But I like where you are going with this, a rival pack, vamps, great way to stir the pot! And Caine looks as though he will have more to worry about than Ethan! Odin seems aggressive!
    Blog looks great too, Phoenix, cheers~

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Gah! No worries Karen! I still have to get caught up on yours! I was so far behind and now even MORE so! *sigh*

    Odin is very aggressive! He doesn’t mess around. Actually he’s what Ethan SHOULD be and aspires to be but just…isn’t!

    Thanks Karen!Smile

    Oh Dear so Alana now not only has pscho Ethan after her but an alternate clan that wants power!!!

    Dante??? is that a version of ty???

    Ok I am so so so so…. On the edge of my seat!!!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Yeah! All Lycans can’t be likable! Sadly! I love me some Lycans!Razz

    Dante is a Sim I made earlier. You must be talking about Dedrick. No, he’s not. He’s just another Sim that I made! LOL!!

    And I’m currently working on another LT update! If I can stop being distracted by CSI: NY that is! Grin

    It looks like more trouble ahead…I feel like saying “why can’t we all just get along?” But there would be no drama.

    Loved the banter and the fabulous lot!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    I don’t think Caine would know what to do with himself if there wasn’t trouble. Ugh! I can’t him going back to just wasting away somewhere! Frown

    Thanks Gayl! That’s a downloaded lot that I just redecorated!

  14. Ning says:

    (OMG? I commented on this like last week or a few weeks ago, and I was wondering why I haven’t gotten a reply from you yet. D8 I don’t where my comment went!)

    Anyway, Odin seemed like a bad leader. Using brute force when someone disagrees with you? His mother must have meant something else when she said he was meant for great thing. o.O And do their pack share mates? I thought Jenna was Odin’s mate, but she showed affection to another male in front of Odin and I thought that was pretty “ugh”. lol.

    I hope Alana realises her full potential and learns to fight back before their pack comes for her! :S

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Oh man!!!! My bad!!! I didn’t see it! Sorry Ning! And OMG! I have to get over to your story! I’ve been behind on everything! *sigh*

    He’s not so much bad as…animalistic. He really embraces the Lycan part of himself and doesn’t take any crap when challenged. And no, they don’t share mates. Well, at least not this pack. Jenna kissing Dedrick was just like if another dog/wolf playfully nuzzles another. A show of affection.

    The Southerland pack is very much in touch with the Lycan part of themselves. That’s what makes them different from the other packs I’ve introduced.

    Umm…haha! I’m working on the next prompt now!

    [Reply]

    Ning Reply:

    lol, I thought it was just my browser giving me problems!

    Oh I see! That clears up a lot for me. Smile

    The next prompt! Grin (*rubs hands gleefully*)

  15. Emily says:

    Oh boy, now a rival pack…and they are playing the vamps, and they want Alana?! This should get seriously interesting now!

    I loved the two making out in the elevator and everyone’s reaction, now that was funny! And the two guys racing to get there first. Grin

    This is getting so good, small victories and even larger challenges ahead, I can’t wait to see where this goes!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Ha! We couldn’t have the Lancasters have ALL the fun now could we?

    That pose was so freakin’ difficult! The elevator is not OMSP friendly! Not at all!! I always think that they enjoy playing more than working whenever they get the chance.

    Thanks Emily!Grin

  16. Mao says:

    Hmmm… so Victoria hates Lycans? Go figure. But that could cause some issues with their deal. I hope Caine knows well enough to be wary of the fangs.

    And another clan, but they don’t want Caine coming to power AND their keeping tabs on the vamps. Yikes. Getting twisted!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    You wouldn’t know it from the way she was all up on Caine huh?

    So very twisted! *rubs forehead* I actually had to start taking notes! The horror!! Frown

    So I definetly just realised I did read this…lol I had no clue. Buttt I still stand by what I said the first time around. They’re playing with fire.

    LOL!! You’re killing me! And this group is about to come into play again so…yeah!

  18. Valpre says:

    This can’t be good, the introduction of a rivalry pack will add a different twist in all of this, especially since Odin’s determined Caine shouldn’t rise to power. I sense another Ethan in Odin, more careful and smarter though. But still ruthless and cunning. I really hope Vivian does come out of The Monastery. There’s no telling what those vampyres can get up to, or if they’re not onto her already. Three more updates and then I’ll be sad Frown What will I do with myself after this Cry

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Oh yes. Odin is a lot more careful and smarter than Ethan. He actually has a pack that(for the most part)is loyal to him. Oh, more of Vivian in upcoming prompts!Razz

    No, there will be more prompts. I just have to decide on the direction of the story!Grin

    Thanks Valpre!
