Thanks to Cherie for the use of Greg.

May 4, 2009. Greg’s residence. 0330 hrs.

Greg drummed his fingers impatiently as the phone rang and rang. Blowing out an impatient breathe when the voicemail clicked on he cleared his throat before the beep.

“Hey Alana. It’s Greg. I got this number from Nolan after he got permission from some guy named Rho. And if it’s the Rho I think it is…what have you gotten involved in since the last time I spoke to  you?” Just what the hell had she gotten into? At least she was with Caine.

“Anyways, I just wanted to check on you and see how you were doing. Also…have you seen a kid? He’s about ten and has blonde hair. If you do see him let me know. I-” There was a soft tap on his front door. Frowning , Greg quickly finished the call. “I have to go. Someone’s knocking on my door. Who the hell-” he muttered as he disconnected the call. Slipping the phone into his pocket he turned and took a cautious sniff then he rushed toward the door and yanked it open.

“Dom? What are you doing here? What’s going on?” Peering around her he was able to see the lights of a taxi fading into the distance.

“Hello Greg. It was easy to find you. You’re in the phone book.”

“Yeah, I need to keep up appearances. But that doesn’t answer my question.” He watched as she twisted her fingers together. His eyes dropped down to the suitcase sitting next to her.

“Uh…”

“May I come in?”

“So, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I left him.”

“You left him?”

“He doesn’t care about Julius. He doesn’t care about me. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself.”

“You left him?”

“Julius has been missing for over two weeks now and Ethan hasn’t lifted a hand to look for him. He’s delegated it to other people as he works toward hunting Caine down.”

“You left him?” Greg pinched his forehead.

“I left him.”

“Dom? Who do you think he’s going to send to look after you?”

Shifting on the couch a small smile crossed her face. “And what better place to hide? He doesn’t come here.”

“But what about when I go to meet him? He’ll smell-”

“I’ll let you in on a little secret. Ethan’s sense of smell has always been weak.” She tapped her own pert nose. “And I have the nose of…well a wolf.”

Greg was uneasy about her being here. He didn’t fully trust her but, to paraphrase Dom, what better place to have her than under his nose?

“Sorry for the way the room looks. I haven’t gotten around to this room yet.”

Sitting down on the edge of the bed Dom looked absently around the room. “It’s fine.”

“Okay, well,” Greg shifted uneasily in the door. “I’m down the hall if you need anything. The fridge is fully stocked and there’s an extra toothbrush in the bathroom down the hall.”

“Thanks.  For everything Greg. Um, have you heard anything about my baby?”

Shaking his head he watched as a sad smile flitted across her face as she wrapped her arms tightly around herself. “I just want my baby back,” she said softly.

“I know Dom. I’m working on it.”

“Thank you. Greg…don’t you have a family of your own?”

He didn’t even blink. “No.”

“So that’s why you do what you do. You have nothing to lose.”

“That’s right. Good night Dom.”

“Good night.”

Closing the door behind him he had taken a few steps away from the door when his pocket vibrated.


Sliding it open he stared down at an unknown number. A new text message flashed at him. Tapping a button he quickly read it. A grin spread across his face. Walking down the hall to his room he laid down on the bed as he reread the message. His thumb absently rubbed across the screen.

I love you.

His hand slid across to the empty side of the bed. A bed that his mate hadn’t had a chance to lay in. He hadn’t been lying when he agreed with Dom. He had everything to lose if they found out about his mate. About his brother. About all the Lycans he had helped. Rubbing a trembling hand over his eyes he laid the phone over his heart.

“I love you too,” he whispered.
______________________
Well, hello there Greg! Long time no see! And just call me Shorty McShort. I had more to this but then decided that it just didn’t flow so that’ll probably be included in the next prompt. Or something like that. Stretching the prompt word again. I was thinking that Dom is getting closer to find Julius. Closer = warm(er). But then Greg just made me feel all warm inside thinking about Rebecca soo…yeah! Prompt might work huh?

    Awww Smile

    It was nice to see Greg again. Hopefully he can do his thing without Dom finding out too much (or if she does, she won’t turn him in?).

    Here’s hoping Julius and his mom find each other again soon! That reminds me, I have my own awkward parent-child meeting to write at some point tonight :S

    I know right? I don’t know where the warm and fuzzy stuff came from in this post!Razz It made me sad for Greg actually. Frown

    It was nice. He’s kinda been a lurker but since I had him in the last prompt I thought: “Why not?”

    Hmm…we shall see if she’s a turn coat or not.

    Oh really?! Do tell Van!Razz

    Through the first half of the prompt, I thought Dom and Greg were an item ‘once upon a time’, I have no idea why… Confused
    Greg and his girl (what’s her name?) are so cute together, all the longing and care and stuff warms my heart. Heart Why do I keep getting this feeling that something really bad will happen to Greg one of these days? Frown

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Ha! That thought didn’t even cross my mind. Dom’s always been with Ethan. He was her first love which is why she put up with his garbage for so long.

    Greg and Becca. They are cute together. When they can steal a moment which makes it sweeter I guess!Frown

    Ohh…I don’t know! *shifty eyes* Since I don’t write anything out before hand I can’t say either way.

    Greg… such a cutie! You mind if I clone him for my story?
    I get such a good feeling off him! Oh yeah, Nolan’s brother.. figures! I agree with Meralgia, I have a feeling something is going to happen to Greg. I hope not.

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Isn’t he though!? I missed him! Unfortunately he’s not mine to share. I got him from Cherie. He’s one reincarnation of Jayden in her story. He’s the guy in the header there. I just tweaked him a bit! Sorry!Frown

    Aww! He’s a good guy! He has to be to be separated from his family for so long. I hope not either…

    ROTFL Your shots Phoenix!! Last time I said Alana looked really pretty but I mean your shots are like crystal clear HD or something but they look really nice Wink Not that they didn’t before but … yeah Smile

    AWW! Greg is a bundle of cuteness. He’s like the good guy. Really where would everyone be without him? 6 ft under most likely Cry

    Shock If Dom is closer to finding Julius that’s a good thing.. but then it means the final showdown between Ethan and Caine is coming closer. Then Caine and Alana must confess their undying love for one another while we see Nolan warming to that.. thing Vivian. Eek!

    Hopefully Ethan ends up dead. That would be nice Silly

    LOL!! Thanks! I don’t do anything extra to them. I take them as PNGs convert to JPEGs(so I can upload via wordpress) lighten them(if necessary) or sharpen just a wee bit. And then upload them! I’m uber lazy when it comes to fiddling with shots.Razz But thanks! I worry that they don’t look the same on other monitors.

    Agreed! He’s adorable! He’s the good guy that gets the girl at the end. Except he already has the girl but ya know what I mean!

    I know! Gah! Just thinking about that fight sequence is enough to make me nervous! Blah!

    Then Caine and Alana must confess their undying love for one another while we see Nolan warming to that.. thing Vivian. <~~ You never fail to crack me up!! Hahaha!!!

    PNG’s? *backs away slowly… computer terms = bleugh!*

    I forgot Greg and Nolan were brothers. Rebecca is one lucky girl! And maybe Vivian. Maybe…

    You’ll pull the fight scene. Remember you did Alana’s transformation and whooping the vampire’s butt a couple of months ago so you can do it. Silly

    I like cracking people up. But then again were not eggs. Mad Razz (lame joke; great meaning Smile )

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    LOL! I convert them! I just like how they look. I used them for awhile at the beginning of the story until my sister said her computer was fail(she didn’t use those exact words!) and then I switched to make load time easier!Razz

    They really can’t talk about each other so I guess that makes sense that no one would remember.Greg is just as lucky.Razz And perhaps Vivian!

    Awww! Thanks!Grin I appreciate that!

    A great sense of humor is good to have! I love to laugh so I know what you mean!Grin

    I swear, I have been reading, or trying to keep up. I love Greg too, great to see him again! Nice bit of info that Ethan’s sense of smell is kinda kaput, that will come in handy, great update!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    No worries!Grin I ♥ him too! I don’t know why I haven’t used him more. I guess he’s more use to blending into the shadows than everyone else!

    That’s the thing about my Lycans. Human conditions can still jack them up! Gotta love it! Thanks Drew!Grin

    I absolutely love that last scene. So sweet, and so lonely. Poor Greg. I just love him too!

    So Ethan has a poor sense of smell…wonder what he’s been sticking his nose into.

    Julius is probably safer where he is than he’d be if Dom tries to collect him. But she’s his mommy, so of course she will.

    I really, really Heart this update!! It’s focused, it’s clear, and the emotions are so strong and so real. Wonderful, wonderful writing!!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Thanks Beth!Grin It was lonely wasn’t it? *sigh* I love him too.

    Ethan should have never been Alpha. In a real pack he’d be Beta. He’s really kinda worthless actually! LOL!!

    He is safer but Dom is his mom and she’s just not going to let him wander the streets…or she thinks he’s wandering the streets when he’s chilling in a penthouse! Ha!

    Thanks Beth! I wasn’t too sure about it but I went with it. I like the direction it took! Big Smile

    Yes!! I’m finally caught up. I’ve been reading for a while now so I can finally comment. First, I’ve never been one for werewolves/lycan. Vampires maybe but not lycan. But you have made me fall in love with these characters. They are so complicated, so tangible, so real. The writing and shots in each have capitvated my imagination and I am completely hooked now. This prompt was no different. I feel bad for Dom. On the one had she seems so lost; everything she believed is a lie and she knows it now. But on the other hand she’s more clear and focused than ever. I really hope she gets her child back soon. She and Greg are sharing the same feeling of disconnection from the only person they love. Very ironic. Anyway just really wanted to let you know how much I enjoy this story and can’t wait for more.

    Hey Muzegoddess! You’re on my TBR list!! I need to get over there before you have me all kinds of backed up!Razz

    Never one for werewolves? The horror!!!Razz And thank you! That’s a big, BIG compliment! I try to write them as real as possible and I’m glad that it draws you in and you’re able to see them as I do. It makes me happy!!Grin

    Totally. Dom is lost but she’s found herself in all of this. And I didn’t even realize the parallel between her and Greg until you pointed it out. Oh wow! That’s so true.

    Thank you SO much!! I’m glad you’re enjoying it! I appreciate your stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment!Smile

    Dom is pretty confident that she is safe there, but I would think it has more to do with taking a risk that might let her in on the info she wants. Better to do that then be completely out of the loop.

    And Greg sounds more than ready for this to all be done with so he can get on with his own life.

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Agreed. Hopefully Greg remembers that she pretty much did all the leg work for Ethan so she’s not going to sit idly by.

    Amen to that. I can’t even imagine. Frown

    Drama!!!!!! Dom better watch out, putting everybody in trouble like that, but you need to bring her son back to her already!!!

    I wonder who his mate is?….

    Oh, completely off topic, but are you ever going to update Ravensworth? I looooove that one, and this one is great too though Grin

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    When isn’t there drama? LOL!! Dom isn’t really trying to cause trouble…at least I don’t think so! Razz

    OH! You met his mate already. She was introduced here.Smile

    I intend to. I just have to get the mojo back after the borked hood!Frown And thank you!Grin

    Lol, whoops! My bad, I totally remember now Smile

    I was happy to see Greg again, I was sad this chapter was so short, lol it took me forever to get here and I was done in over a minute… lol…

    Aww maybe I will read it again…
    I really feels orry for Dom, she does look great with her new hair though!!! She really is a beautiful sim…

    I know Greg is a great guy, always helping others, but I really doubt it was a good idea to accept Dom in his house… what if she is wrong about Ethan’s sense of smell? what if he finds out…he will sure kill Greg… or destroy those he loves… he indeed has everything to lose!!!

    I really enjoyed this short update!!! Grin

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Oh man! How did I miss this comment? Sorry Sandy! Frown

    I missed writing Greg and this prompt seemed fitting for him…sadly enough!Frown

    I feel bad for Dom too. She did get herself into this mess but she’s doing her best to fix it…at least I hope so!Razz And thanks Sandy! Haha! She was made in CAS ages ago!

    Dom already knows too much. But Ethan does know where Greg lives. Greg keeps up appearances and Ethan really isn’t that keen on getting Dom back. Not really!

    Thanks!!Grin

    YAY all caught up!!! at least with LT

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Yep! I don’t know it it’s cool or not though! We shall see! I missed writing about Greg! This prompt made me miss him even more!Frown

    LOL!! LT is the only one I’ve been updating recently! I need to get back into RG! I’ve been saying that for months but seriously!! I have people asking about it!Frown

    YOUR VERSION OF LYCAN IS SIMILAR TO THAT OF
    uNDERWORLD. HAVE YOU READ IT? Shock Question
    Every time I read a story or see a movie-its
    diferent in some way. Same with vampyres(vampires).

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha! No, I haven’t read it. I sorta watched the movie when it first came out but wasn’t really into it! That’s interesting! Maybe I should watch it again!
