May 18, 2009. Rho’s safehouse.

“Come on! Come on! What are you waiting for? Don’t want to get a beat down by a girl?”

Caine shook his head as he heard her feet shuffling back and forth on the mats.  He did a few more one armed push ups before getting to his feet.  “Nah, I was just tiring myself out so we’re on an even keel.”

“I beg your pardon?”

“Just saying.”

“Yeah, yeah! Well, bring it on.” She made a motion with her hands as she danced around.

Caine forced himself not to be distracted by the interesting way her body was bouncing as she moved.  She had gotten cocky over the last few days.  He’d gone easy on her, not wanting to  hurt her but it was time for her to face facts.  He was stronger, faster and smarter than her when it came to fighting…and he wasn’t afraid to play dirty.  Stretching his arms, he cracked his neck as he climbed onto the mats.

“Alright, show me what you got.”

She didn’t need to be told twice.  Grinding her teeth she came at him with everything she had.  Usually she was able to give a few well placed kicks to the his sides but today he kept batting her away.  He could tell it was frustrating her when she growled.  He only smirked and winked back at her then waited for her next move.  It wasn’t long in coming and she telegraphed it with her body before she acted it out.  When her leg swung upward he captured her foot between his side and arm, grabbed her shoulder and flipping her off her feet watched as her face met the mat.

“So, when are you going to bring it on?” he asked casually as he twisted her arms behind her back.  Her body was slick with sweat and she was panting for breathe.  He hadn’t even broken a sweat.

“I think,” she said between big gulps of air, “That I hate you right now.  Seriously.”

His lips twitched.  “No, you don’t princess.  You like me just fine.” Smacking her on her tight ass he released her arms and stood.  After a moment she rolled over onto her back and stared up at him.

“So, you’ve just been handling me with kid gloves for the last few days?”

“Yeah, something like that.”

“Why?”

“I wanted to see what you already knew.  You already told me about your kick boxing classes.”

“And what did you learn?”

“That you’re seriously fucked if you ever get into a fight with a non-human.”

“Wait, don’t hold back.  Tell me how you really feel.”

Reaching down, he yanked her to her feet.  “If something ever happened to you…” He leaned into her palm when she cupped his cheek.

“I know.  So,” she said as she pushed away from him, “Why don’t you show me what you have?”

Hours later Alana snatched the water bottle, the water bottle that he had been about to drink, out of his hands and guzzled it.

“Hey! Slow down before you make yourself sick.” Reaching into the mini fridge he grabbed two more bottles and headed toward her.  He tossed her one when she made a motion with her hand.

“I think…you’re trying…to…kill me,” she panted as she flopped down.  All her muscles ached.  She groaned when he tugged her to a sitting position.

“I’m trying to make sure you stay alive.  You need to do a warm down.”

“Oh shut up! I can’t even move.”

“You’re such a wuss.”

“Am not.”

Cocking an eyebrow he pulled one of her legs into his lap and began to massage it.  He froze when she let out a groan of satisfaction.  “See, now I think you’re trying to kill me,” he muttered. A ghost of a smile played around her mouth.

“Turn about is fair play.” She nudged her foot gently against his erection.

“Okay, are you relaxed?” he asked after they’d been sitting in a comfortable silence for a few minutes.

“Yes.”

“I want you to try again.”

“Caine…”

“Alana, the wolf is a large part of you.  If you get into a fight with a Lycan they sure as hell aren’t going to change back into human just to fight fair.  And even if they did they’d wipe the floor with you.”

“Franklin didn’t.”

“Franklin wasn’t very smart.  Granted, you did handle that fight very well but you have to be prepared.  Those few seconds when you change make you vulnerable.  They give your enemy an opening.  Now try again.”

“Okay, okay Alpha.”

He nudged her leg with his foot and winked.  “Now focus and breathe.  In and out.  In and out…”

In and out…In and out…

“Alana!”

Her eyes snapped open.  “What?”

Caine shook his head.  “You can’t allow yourself to be distracted.  Ignore the noise, the smells and focus!”

Glaring at him for a moment she closed her eyes again.

In and out…In and out…

“Well, well, well.  Aren’t you pretty?”

    You know that if you ever need any specific outfit or anything for your story, you can let me know, right?

    It was nice to see these guys again. I had nearly forgotten about Lycan Tales…but you can blame that on my bad memory from all these stupid meds. |:<

    Oh! Hey thanks Kayleigh! Grin I’ll remember that. I just went on a downloading spree with those pants you released(I waited until my computer was acting right!). Thanks for those!

    I know what you mean. Some of my meds make my loopy! Not fun at all! Frown I hope everything is going alright for you!

    *Happy dance*
    Alana and Caine seem like they are breathing easier with that kiss out of the way. Even more flirtatious..love that!

    Victoria and Ethan… that is gross.

    I was wondering about the city scene. Thanks for passing that on! I know of a quick and easy blood tutorial through Photoshop. I can send it to you if you’d like. Tweet me.

    Great prompt!

    I think they are. They’re over the awkward first kiss and are now a little more comfortable with each other. They’re still doing that slow, shuffle dance. Move forward, move forward then back away!

    Yeah, Victoria and Ethan are just nasty. I can’t even…blah! Big Frown

    No problem! I love Yuxi’s stuff! Ohh…will it convert to Paintshop? Thanks Qui! Will do!

    Qui Reply:

    I don’t know if it will convert but I use Paintshop Pro as well. I’ll look around and see if I can find one for paintshop.

    Aww I missed Caine and Alana. They’re so great together ^_^ His last line made me giggle.

    Ugh, Ethan really is a bit stuck on himself isn’t he? -.- And she’s… kinda eerie and gross. Lol. Where’s a house fire when you need one? =P

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    I did too!! Thanks Yui!! Haha, I’m glad you think so because I do too!Razz

    Yeah, Ethan really is. I think it’s because he knows that he’s really crap and he’s just trying to build himself up. And Victoria is, and will always be, creepy. I know right?? Have them burn and be over it!Razz

    Ahhh, you updated while I was sleeping! Frown

    Caine and Alana are adorable, as always. I get the feeling it’s only a matter of time before she’s going to be able to kick some serious ass.

    As for Ethan and Victoria… ugh. I’m not sure which one is worse. Probably Ethan, but Victoria’s creepy too.

    Great prompt, Phoenix Smile I missed this story!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Sorry Van!! Frown I couldn’t sleep sooo…

    Thanks!!Grin I hope so because she’s going to need to…*whistles innocently*

    I think both of them are even on the disgusting/creepy meter. I hate writing scenes with both of them in it. *shudder*

    Thanks Van! I did too!!

    I LOVE LOVE Caine and Alana!! One of the best couples in any story! The relationship seems to be moving forward, every physical contact a flirtation. Wow sexy and wonderful!!

    Ethan and Victoria can share the prize for overall creepiness. Except they’d probably tear each other apart fighting for it.

    I am so glad you’re writing again! Really missed this story and these characters!!! Fantastic job and keep on going!!

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Wow!! Thanks S.B.Grin That makes me so happy! Especially considering all the great couples on other stories(you and Gayl’s story included of course!). It is moving forward. Slowly but surely but that’s just the kind of person Alana is.

    OMG!! I know right? I don’t know what the deal is with those two. And they fight over everything and that ends of in crazy, weird sex! Blah!

    Me too! I missed it. I really thought it was a computer problem and not a graphics one for a long time.Frown Thanks girl!! I will! I appreciate the support!! Grin

    Ah!! How did I miss this earlier?!! Damn google reader. Anyway, I’ve really missed Caine and Alana (but you know that) and I’m glad to see he’s teaching her to defend herself as something tells me she’s going to need to verys soon. I love the way they challenge each other, such a perfect match.

    And yes, Ethan and Victoria are gross with a capital G. If I didn’tknow what evil looked like before, I do now. That skinny pale blood sucker better keep her fangs off Caine or I’ll help Alana kick her ass. LOL.

    So happy to see these Lycans again; well worth the wait.

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Haha! No worries! I posted it early in the morning! I have yet to try out google reader! Haha! Thanks! I missed them too! It was great getting back into that hood. And yeah…she is. Very soon! Thinking

    LOL!! THEY SO ARE!! I can’t stand either one of them! And she’s so into Caine. Visualizing him is what gets her off with Ethan. He’d have a fit if he realized that. And if Alana knew that?? Oh boy!! LOL!!

    Thanks Muze!! I appreciate it! Glad you enjoyed it!

    I love the connection between Alana and Caine and the way you write it. Like a slow burn until it ignites.

    As for Victoria and Ethan…yeah they are one gross couple and I figured that Ethan was a buffoon but Victoria could eat him for lunch. Sadly.

    This was so missed. Thank you for updating! Graphics looked good!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    Thanks Gayl! Smile I try to strike some sort of balance so glad it comes out right!

    And you’re right! Victoria would so snack on him and not give it a second thought. He’s just an appetizer until she gets Caine.

    Awww! Thanks! I missed it too! Thank you for reading!! Grin Good! I went to computer to computer to check them out!Razz

  8. goodbye_sun says:

    Not a nice lesson for Alana, but she probably needed to know that she can’t just rely on her physical strength in a fight. Good thing she is a bit more forgiving with Caine nowadays, or she would have found some devious way to pay him back for taking it easy on her at first.

    Victoria and Ethan were made for each other

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    No, but it was a realistic one. Winning one fight, albeit against a vamp, does not a champion make. Especially when you’re all alone! LOL! I think she’ll still have some payback for him but she’s exhausted right about now!Razz

    Indeed they are! Ugh!

  9. Yuxi says:

    Yay, your game works again! Welcome back!

    Well, I had to read this when there weren’t people swarming around behind my back, and man, Victoria is one creeeepy bloodsucker. Seems Ethan is finally realising that he sucks though, haaaha.

    (And it makes me happy to see my stuff actually being useful! XD)

    [Reply]

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    YAY!!! Thanks Yuxi! I was going through withdrawal!Razz

    Ugh, I know how that is! And yeah, she really is. She’s always been malicious. Rho was just hoping he could help her out!Frown Ethan still has no idea that he’s a loser. He just thinks people aren’t respecting him enough! Question

    It makes me happy to use your stuff because it’s awesome!! Thank you for sharing!!!Grin

    ~ Ethan deserves everything Victoria dishes out!
    ~ When I first saw him I said YUM! but he is a spineless piece of work! I don’t think many would feel sorry for him!
    ~ I am so loving the dynamics of the relationship between Caine & Alana,I love that he is not babying her,but teaching her to fight for her self!It would be so easy in his situation,to do that to her,but he realizes that she would never stand for that,Rho has been a big help in opening both their eyes,on this,as they both are very new to this thing that is happening between them………love is in the air!
    ~ Whether they know it or not!!!!

    PhoenixFG Reply:

    He does indeed! He got himself into this mess by being greedy!

    I know! Man, he’s so cute but so evil! Frown It makes me sad!

    Oh God! Caine doesn’t believe in babying! LOL!! And Alana would realize that and be annoyed with him. Rho has a way of opening everyone’s eyes. He’s good at that which is one of the reason I ♥ him!

    Thank you Karima! I appreciate you reading and commenting!Grin
