It took exactly ten minutes before the vampires started an uproar. Upstairs Dio rolled is eyes at his mate. “I warned you.”
Varick gave him a sheepish grin. “Just because it’s noisy downstairs doesn’t mean there’s a problem.”
Smiling Dio accepted Varick’s kiss. No reason to punish himself by refusing his mate’s affection. Dio wallowed in Varick’s attention for several minutes before someone banged on their door.
“Alpha, there’s a problem.” A worried voice said from the other side.
Dio raised an eyebrow.
“That doesn’t mean the vampires have started anything,” Varick argued.
Varick pulled open the bedroom door to expose a shifter Dio didn’t know. He had long blond hair and big blue panicked eyes. “The vampires have started a fight in the living room.”
Dio stifled his laughter at the annoyed expression covering his mate’s face. Shrugging he strolled past the wolf shifters and headed downstairs.
In the middle of the living room two of the three triplets were wrestling on the ground knocking things over and rolling around like children.
Dio wondered for a moment what they were fighting over, then he decided he didn’t care. “Stop!” he demanded.
The vampires froze mid roll, released each other and stood up. As Dio approached they shuffled their feet like little children.
“He started it,” they said simultaneously while pointing at the other vamp.
Dio rubbed his forehead as he regarded the vampires. “What are you two doing and where is your third?”
Ceiser and Maerel looked around for Terris but he was nowhere to be seen. “He must’ve gone off with that female werewolf he saw,” Ceiser offered with a smile. “He prefers the ladies.”
“And you two were fighting over?”
“Me.” Gleason stepped forward a blush covering the werewolf’s cheeks. “They were fighting over who got to bite me.”
Varick growled. “They should’ve flipped a coin or something instead of interrupting us.”
“Sorry,” Maerel and Ceiser said together.
“Do you two want to wait for me back home?” Dio asked.
Dio sighed. “Then try to pick out a meal in a peaceful manner or I’ll send you back home hungry. Do we understand each other?”
The vampires nodded.
“Good.” Wrapping his fingers around Varick’s wrist Dio pulled his mate behind him. “They’ll be no trouble at all,” Dio said in a sarcastic voice.
Varick laughed and docilely let Dio drag him away.
