“The sun is coming up in a few hours.”

SNAG-0364

“And every vampyre knows that the youngest of our kind can’t withstand the rays of the sun for very long. Tell me, little vamp, what were you doing up here?”

“I-I wasn’t snooping! Please!”

SNAG-0365

Ignoring the hand that was stretching toward her Nikita allowed her own hand to loosen from around the younger vamp’s wrist. “It’s not a long fall but-”

“Nikita, leave it be. Let Rho handle this.”

She stilled at Xavier’s voice. “I thought you had gone with the others.”

“Not yet. Victoria has been acting strange lately. I needed to talk to her for a moment but…she’s disappeared. I’m going now.  Leave this for Rho. Do you understand?”

Nikita smirked as she yanked the younger vampyre back over the balcony. “Oh, he’s going to have fun with you. No more secrets.”

May 5, 2009. Rho’s townhouse. 1715 hrs

SNAG-0366

“Whatcha making? It smells good. Like cookies. Why couldn’t I have more cookies? Those cookies were good. And the soda was too. I’m thirsty. Can I have another one please? I-”

“Kid, you can’t have any more cookies and pop because you’re like a rabbit on speed already. Jesus! And I’m making you some oatmeal. It’s good for you.”

“Okay Mr. Nolan. Then afterwards you’ll take me to see Caine?”

“Nope. Not until you tell me exactly who you are and why you want to speak with him.”

The kid knocked his sneakers against the island while he chewed on his lip. It was the first time he’d stopped talking since Nolan had come downstairs. After rummaging around and finding him some clothes he figured he’d cook the kid something. Maybe once he had food in his stomach he’d be willing to talk.

SNAG-0368 “You’re not eating anything Mr. Nolan?”

“It’s just Nolan kid and no. I’m good.” No way in hell he was going to eat oatmeal. He’d had enough of that shit growing up to last a life  time. Tapping his hands on his thighs Nolan watched the kid shove spoonful after spoonful into his mouth.

“So, are you from around here?” The kid shook his head. “Why are you looking for Caine?”

“Gotsta make my mom happy.”

“And she’d be happy if you found Caine?” A sudden thought struck Nolan. “Fuck me! Are you his kid?”

He received an eye roll and another shake of the head as the kid shoved half a piece of toast in his mouth. “No, I’m not his son. May I have some more Nolan?”

“Sure. You know,” he said as he spooned out more oatmeal. “I can’t help you if you don’t talk.”

“Caine can help me. I know he can. He has to!”

SNAG-0370

“Come on motherfucker! Come on! Die already!”

Julius watched as Nolan mashed buttons on the controller while he yelled at the TV. Twisting his hands in front of him he looked down. He wanted to tell Nolan who he was but what if he didn’t like him and didn’t let him see Caine? Then what would he do? He didn’t know where they where so he couldn’t get back home. And he didn’t think that they’d let him just leave anyways. His dad had always said that he could be used to get to him. What if Nolan did the same thing?

Inching forward he saw Nolan looking at him before something on the screen caught his attention again. Scowling, he muttered a curse under his breath and leaned forward. Nolan sure did curse a lot. More than his dad even. Not more than Caine though. No, Caine cursed a lot!

Trying not to be noticed Julius leaned against the couch before sitting gingerly down on the edge. After a few minutes, when Nolan didn’t say anything, he scooted back some more.

SNAG-0371

Looking down he tapped the foot of his sneakers and heaved a sigh.

“Nolan?”

“Yeah?”

“Do you know who Ethan Vanderwall is?” Julius edged backward when a short growl came from Nolan’s side of the couch.

“Yeah…yeah, I know him. Why?”

“Just askin’. Has there…has there been anything on the news about him?”

“I don’t watch the news. It’s fucking depressing.”

“Oh, okay.” That was good. He didn’t know if his dad would put his picture on the news. He’d seen other missing kids with their pictures on the news but they were different. Human. Scratching at his arm he looked at the TV.

“Whatcha playin’?”

“Warfare.” There was a pause then, “Wanna play?”
SNAG-0372

“Eat that sucka! In your FACE!”

Nolan grinned as the kid rapidly pressed buttons and talked trash to the TV.

“Where’d you learn how to play video games?” he asked.

“Me and my mom play them sometimes when my dad’s not around. He says that only little kids play games. Men don’t ’cause it’s a waste of time playing games. He said I could be out learning real stuff.”

“Hmmm…you seem pretty close to your mom. She’s probably worried about you.”

“Yeah, she probably is.”

“Did you want to call her?”

He shook his head. “No. Not until I do what I said I was gonna do,” he said stubbornly.

SNAG-0373

Nolan didn’t realize how much time had passed until his new cellphone rang. Getting up he checked the screen. His hand hovered over the send button when he saw he name. Clearing his throat he pressed it.

“Hello?”

“Nolan.”

“Caine.”

There was a long pause broken by the sounds of the kid tapping away at the keyboard.

“Oh for heaven’s sake Caine!”

Nolan grinned when he heard Alana’s voice in the background and Caine’s sigh.

“Alana misses the pup. Bring him to the safe house.”

“I miss the pup? I miss him? You-”

The line went dead in his ear and he slid the phone closed. Turning he saw the kid was already looking at him.

“We’re going to see Caine now?”

“It looks that way kid.”

_____________
Dun, dun, dun!!! I didn’t forget about Vivian and Nikita. I just didn’t have a reason to bring them back…until now!Razz Nolan got a mini-make over. I found a new dread hair that I liked that didn’t have the shine. It was more nappy. How dreads REALLY are! It’s not noticeable though but I thought I’d mention it just in case someone else pointed it out!Smile And can I say I ♥ Nolan? I love his facial expressions.

    Nolan and Julius are such a winning combo! Grin

    Heheh… when Julius first asked Nolan what he was cooking, my immediate thought was pot brownies. I have no idea why…

    “Alana misses the pup. Bring him to the safe house.”

    Man, Julius just does not stop, I think Nolan let him have too much sugar or something. It was nice for Nolan to have a buddy for the day though, it obviously helped him keep his mind of things a bit.

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL! He’s look a squirrel or something! He’s super hyper but that’s just my take on Lycan pups!

    And it was. He needed someone to lift him out of his funk!

    awww…Julius reminds me of someone too! He’s adorable!! And already protective. They learn young.

    and Vivian and Nikita. First I love the shots in that scene! That scene with Nikita pulling Vivian up over the wall is fantastic! I feel for Vivian. What an ominous, bitchy remark to make when she was obviously scared.

    This was a wonderful, wonderful chapter! A perfect length, focused and beautiful shots!

    Aw! I’m glad Nolan has Julius, he needs a little kindness and funny in his life. Shame he doesn’t know his mum is safe from his crazy dad.

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha! I ♥ them together! I really do! Nolan is oblivious because he’s not thinking that this chatty kid could be Ethan’s son. Besides Ethan has kept it really hush hush that his kid is missing.
