Rho’s townhouse. May 9, 2009. 0816hrs.


Squinting against the blinding sun coming through the bathroom window, what kind of fucking vamp let the light in, Nolan fumbled for the knobs to the faucet.  Giving them a hard tug he scrubbed water over his face.

“I hate the fucking morning. This is bullshit. Why do I have to babysit?” he muttered as he ran his tongue over his teeth. Grimacing, he grabbed a toothbrush and swiped half-heartedly at his teeth before tossing it aside as his stomach growled.

It wasn’t as if Vivian had woken up by herself.  Rho had to come, shake her awake and shove food into her before she fell back asleep.  Nolan didn’t know what he had done to her but she obeyed Rho like a lost puppy.  Reaching the kitchen he slammed a pan on the stove then cocked his head to listen for any signs of movement.

“Nope.”

Shrugging, he made breakfast for himself.

He loved to cook.  It was a guilty pleasure.  Well, one of them at least.  He loved trying out new recipes and watching his pack mates faces as they enjoyed each bite of food.  Lycans, in general, enjoyed good food.  Sex, food, music and pack were high up on a Lycans list of priorities.  The last two were interchangeable.  Not so much the first two. That being said there was something about eating alone that depressed himself.  The same ingredients but the food just did not taste the same. Regardless, his stomach felt as if it were eating itself, so he dug into his stack of pancakes.

“Fuck, these are great,” Nolan muttered as he licked a drop of syrup from his finger.

“They sure smell good.”

Nolan’s plate clattered onto the counter as his head whipped around. Vivian grinned at him before starting down the stairs.

“Good morning!”

“What the fuck? Is that my shirt?”

Her footsteps faltered at his growl. Fingering the first button on the shirt she shrugged before walking by him.  “I don’t know. I can’t really remember much of anything since last night when Rho brought me here.”

“Try four days ago.  And that is my shirt! What the hell?”

“What do you mean four days?”

“You’ve been sleeping, if that’s what you want to call it, for four days now.”

“Well, no wonder I feel so refreshed.  It’s been awhile since I’ve been up during the day.”

“Yeah, with all the betraying and plotting you’ve been doing I’m sure you’ve been plenty busy.”

As she passed by him Vivian grabbed his plate and headed into the kitchen.

Nolan caught himself looking at her ass as she bent over to place the plate in the dishwasher.  Yanking his eyes away from the temptation, there was not going to be any sleeping with the enemy bullshit going on here, he glanced around idly.

“Are there any pancakes left?”

“Nope.” He had never been so pleased to say such a simple word.

“Oh.” She stood in the middle of the kitchen fiddling with the bottom of her, his, shirt.

“There’s some bran flakes in the cabinet behind you.  No milk though.  I finished that off last night.”

“I see…”

“Well, the pancake mix is behind you if you like that crap.  I made mine from scratch,” he said with relish.  No one fucked with his pack.  No matter how attractive they were.  Not that he found her attractive, he thought hastily.  Fuck no.  She wasn’t wearing any make-up and her hair was a rat’s nest.  No, he didn’t find her attractive at all.

“Thanks for your help…what is your name?”

“Nolan.”

“I’m-”

“I know who you are,” he growled.

“Right.”

Whipping around Vivian grabbed a bowl from the cabinet and proceeded to follow the instructions on the back of the box.  How hard was it to make pancakes? Sure, she wasn’t a great cook, never had been, but pancakes were a snap right? They had to be to become such a staple at breakfast.  As she stirred the ingredients she tried to ignore the eyes trying to burn a hole into her back.  Okay, if she was honest with herself she deserved his animosity.  She, along with the rest of her pack, had been plotting to take down his.  She would want to rip out someone’s throat.  Her lip curled upward into a silent snarl at the very thought.

“You grip that spoon any tighter and you’re going to fucking break it.  Then Rho will be pissed.”

“I’m sure Rho has enough money to buy a replacement spoon.”

“Not the point.  You don’t go around breaking things just because they can be replaced.  And you don’t threaten my family either.”

“I never threatened anyone!”

“No? Oh, that’s right.  You were just sent to gather information so that your alpha could try to destroy my family.”

Trying to put a pleasant expression on her face Vivian walked over to the stove.  “Nolan, haven’t you ever had to follow an order that you didn’t agree with?”

“This isn’t about me,” he snapped.

“Of course not,” she said with a sigh as she dropped a spoonful of batter into the pan.  Flicking on the burner she stood over the pan with a determined look on her face.

“You look different,” he muttered.

“Hmm…I don’t have to be all dolled up now.  Have you noticed that most female vamps don’t know how to dress down? It’s stifling.  Give me jeans and a shirt any day of the week.  And I’m not wearing make-up.  Thank God!”  She looked away from the pan to see him studying her intently.

“Are you going to sit there and stare at me all day?”

“I don’t really have a choice.” A growl had entered his voice.   She understood.  No one trusted her and Nolan was her babysitter.  Her nose twitched and she looked down to see the edges of the pancake turning black.

“Damn it!” Flipping it over to stared down in dismay at the charred mess.  She scowled at him when he chuckled.  There was no way she was eating that.  Scrapping it into the garbage she started over again.

“Here.” He hated to see food go to waste.  At least that’s what he told himself as he walked behind her and grabbed her wrist.  A jolt went through her body and she bumped his chin with her head.  Locking his jaw he placed her hand on the handle.

“If you wait when the edges are a golden brown you can flip the pancake without the spatula.  No splatter and no scraping the cooked side so it’s perfectly golden all over.  See?” With a practice flick he watched the pancake flip several times before landing back in the pan.  “No mess.”

She turned and grinned at him over her shoulder and for the first time he noticed her freckles and the pancake flour on her cheek.  Releasing her wrist he brushed his thumb over her cheek.  Her skin was so soft and her cheek fit just right in the palm of his hand as if…

Jerking away from her he gestured to the stove.  “Turn it off, eat and then go get dressed.  We have to talk.”

Nolan blew smoke from his nose and watched it drift away before taking another drag on his cigarette.  He glanced over at Vivian.  She was staring off into the distance as if she were trying to gather her thoughts.  He went straight for the jugular.

“So, are you gonna tell me why your alpha thinks he has a snowballs chance in hell of murdering mine?”

_____________________________________________

This is for everyone wanting a Nolan fix!!Grin (Myself included since this wasn’t the next prompt planned but I missed him!)And here’s a shot that I was going to use instead of the opening one but I thought he looked so cute looking grumpy that I used that instead! Sun=Vivian finally getting to enjoy it’s rays again out in the open since she was playing the part of the vamp for so long! Also a new day for Nolan.  Not every day he meets a female that gets under his skin since he’s always so laid back! They’re so interesting in game too! Haha! Sorry for any spelling errors(I think I caught them all!) or…anything like that! I wrote it when I was kinda tipsy! Good times! Good times!

    Usually I just glance over the pictures as I read, then go back and look them over but that first picture captured my attention! Nolan’s body… Yes

    I LOVED this prompt! He is always so calm.. so chilled but we got to see a little bit of the beast! Nice!

    Girl, I do the same thing! Haha! I know right? I was staring and wondering where I’d gotten that skin from…Nolan=hot pixels!Razz

    Thank you!Grin I think this whole thing is going to weird him out! Or have him smoking a little more! Who knows with him!?

    Qui Reply:

    Yeah, he has that whole Ken doll thing going on!

    I see him smoking more! Especially if he keeps getting close to her like that!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL! That’s exactly what he is since I didn’t use crammyboy’s hack on him! ROTFL

    True! And then she’ll complain about him smoking so he’ll smoke even more just to get on her nerves. Nolan is nothing if not mature!Razz

    I love Nolan’s insistence about how he didn’t find her attractive, not one bit, not at all. Sure you don’t, Nolan Wink Nice taste in shirts, by the way Razz

    I love the way these two interact. Nice work, Phoenix Smile

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Ha! He’s fooling himself. For how long who knows? Nolan buys pjs and never wears the tops. I don’t know why he got all bent out of shape over that shirt! Wink

    Thanks Van!Grin

    Nolan! He always makes me laugh, he’s a funny guy. Doesn’t find Vivian attractive my fanny. No make-up, rat’s nest hair and he’s still on it. And Vivian, finally getting to be what she really is and not having to pretend anymore. While she doesn’t know him being around Nolan probably feels more like home to her right now. And he clearly feels something around her. Mates maybe? Hmmm, that would definately be interesting to say the least. I can’t wait to see what develops. Smile

    Nolan is good at telling himself things and almost believing them. How long that will last though…And you hit the nail on the head with Vivian. She wore herself out pretending she was someone(something) that she wasn’t and being loyal to her pack. Who knows where her loyalties lay now though! Confused

    As for those two being mates? Who knows? They might just kill each other first! LOL!!

    HAHAHA!! Love this!! And short chapters are great!!

    Love this: “Sex, food, music and pack were high up on a Lycans list of priorities. The last two were interchangeable.”

    sexy SEXY when Nolan takes the spoon away from her (I was wondering if he was going to eat the burned pancakes…I mean, real dogs would LOL).

    Totally wonderful! Thank you!!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Thanks Beth!!Grin LOL! I know you like the short chapters! Kayleigh just wants epic ones!! I have to find a medium! LOL!

    Nolan is a trip isn’t he? I just love the way his mind works. And oh LORD! I can just see the look on his face if someone suggested that he eat the burned pancake!! Hahaha!! Shock

    Thank YOU for reading! Cute

    Heh, my first thought was ‘wait, is he NAKED?’. Despite his claims he’s quite charmed by Vivian, isn’t he? Nolan is interesting when he gets all serious and grumpy. Neutral~

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Nah! He just pulled a Jesse and went shirtless!Razz Haha!

    Totally. I don’t know if it’s because she’s the first female that’s he had any sort of contact with outside the pack for any length of time(groupies don’t count!) or if he’s really into her!

    Isn’t he just? Writing him like this kinda tripped me out since he’s usually all sorts of laid back!

    When angry Nolan just equals Wink

    Oh Vivian is so crushing on him. And Nolan so wants her. Hello, look at Caine and Alana!! She knocked him out with a fire extinguisher and he attacked her (if my memory serves me right) and they are so up on each other!

    OOOH, looks like it’s the war of my alpha is better than yours. *does uh, sports commentary whatever it’s called voice with a glowing torch underneath face as to emphasise scariness or uh, overall greatness* And who will be the winner? (Caine, duh.)

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Hahaha!!! He’s one of those guys who looks good any which way right?

    I don’t know if she’s crushing on him…there’s a lot going on with her that has to be resolved. She’s feeling a bit off since Rho just essential shoved centuries of angst down her throat! As for Nolan…he’ll never admit it…at least not yet! LOL!!! Yeah man! She totally knocked him out! That still cracks me up!

    Bwhaha!! Of course Caine is better! At least I think so!!Razz

  8. goodbye_sun says:

    Poor Nolan, years of smoking weed has obviously trained him to deny everything first and worry about the consequences later Razz

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    So true!! He’s motto is: Admit nothing, deny everything, demand proof!Razz That’s gotten him this far no?

    Can I say I was so damned amused by Nolan’s t-shirt in that last shot?

    What a pair these two are…I agree that they could have an Alana/Caine type of relationship. Very sweet and sexy cooking scene. Your writing always draws me in. More please?

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    I ♥ that shirt so much! I just hadn’t found a Sim to use it on until now! And it’s so him right?

    They’re a pair alright but it remains to be seen if they’re a mated pair or just attracted to each other. It happens! Thank you!Grin Haha! I’ll try! I have the next few pics for the next prompt ready. I just have to go in and take more.

  10. Tessa says:

    Yes! I looked on LJ and saw the link to this and I squealed, I really did. My sister heard me and gave me an odd look, but I didn’t mind, it was update time, score!

    Lol, I love Nolan, he rocks. I love how he had to give the voice in his head excuses as to his real motives for helping Vivianne. “You can’t just let good food go to waste”

    Also, just saying, if that’s his shirt, he sure goes for the hourglass figure form-fitting type of shirt Razz I can’t wait to see what happens between these two. I can totally see Caine’s face now if they got together: Shock

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha!! Thanks!! Blush

    I love Nolan too!! And he knows that he shouldn’t be attracted to her and doesn’t want to be but…yeah…Razz

    That’s one of those tops that come with the pjs and even though he never wears them he doesn’t think that she should just wear his clothes either! It’s his and that’s all that matters in his mind! Haha!!Razz

    Yeahhhh…Caine will not be pleased. Not pleased at ALL!! IDK

    [Reply]

  11. s@ndy says:

    interesting interaction between those too… and Nolan repeating to himself he didn’t find her attractive, yeah sure!! Grin LOL

    I loved when he goes behind her to help her with the pancake! it was sexy!

    I wonder if these two will go anywhere together… I sure hope so… they seemed into each other!

    Great update. sorry I’m soo late!! Grin

    oh by the way, that last shot is hilarious! I love his shirt!
    Seriously I want that shirt… a real one! Grin

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL! Thanks Sandy!Smile Nolan will probably not mention his attraction to her for a long, LONG time…if ever! Not saying that they’re mates or anything like that because who knows…

    Ha! Thanks! He had to get away from her quickly after that!

    No worries!Grin I still have to get to yours!Frown

    Bwahaha!! I wish I had that shirt too!! Seriously! I would rock it! And I did meld your comments together so I could answer!Razz
