The door closed softly behind Mark as he left the room. The vampire guard always watched Loren while he rested. All the council had protection. There were five vampires responsible for the vampire leadership. Loren was the leader given the right by hereditary status. The other four were elected. Loren could overrule any decision but he never did without a good reason. If they thought they could vote over his lover they could go soak their heads.
“Shh, don’t worry so much. Sleep.”
Loren opened his mouth to say something but darkness took over and he plunged into rest.

Vin woke from the most amazing dream where he had sex with a gorgeous vampire who he chose as his own. The soft breath against his neck had him wiggling in his semi-sleep. His cock hardened with morning wood and the close connection with a body in his bed.
Opening his eyes, he rubbed them to verify the truth.
It had all been real. He knew that beer allergy would come back and bite him in the ass some day he just hadn’t expected it to happen so soon. Sometimes when he consumed hops it did strange things to his magic. This time it apparently made him lose his ever-loving mind.
The urge to kiss the soft lips temptingly near to his own had Vin clenching his fists against the need. He bit his lip to hold back the whimper. With slow, careful motions he disengaged his body from the sexy vampire holding him cherishingly close.
He could do this. He could escape before whoever the guy was woke up. Glancing around he didn’t spot his clothes.
Oh right. The memory of zapping them off flashed before him like a horror movie rerun.
Gathering his power he imagined his closet at the dorm. Rifling through the clothes he selected a pair of jeans and a faded sweatshirt. A quick pull of power had them tumbling on the floor before him.
Another had his favourite pair of sneakers beside them.
He’d deal with underwear when he got back to the dorm. Right now he needed to escape as quietly as possible. Dressing quickly he headed for the door only to freeze.
He cursed long and silently as he watched the beautiful man slumber. Curling his toes in his sneakers he resisted the siren call of the bed. He’d never had this level of desire with any of his other lovers. Of course he’d never had the compulsion to attack any of them and haul them off to bed either.
Another step to the door had him stalling. He couldn’t leave without a note or anything. He wasn’t that much of a bastard. The guy had given him a great fuck and held him all night.
Vin wasn’t the type of asshole to fuck and run.
Whispering softly he gathered his magic like water in his cupped hands. Concentrating closely a red rose formed, gold lined each petal. A wave of his hand had it floating to the empty pillow Vin left behind.
Satisfied his one night stand wouldn’t feel abandoned, Vin left the room. Closing the door as silently as possible he turned to leave.
“Going somewhere?” A six-foot two behemoth with an extra serving of muscles stood to one side of the door.
“Yeah I’ve got to get back to school now.” Vin nodded to the guy and tried to move past him.
“Go down the stairs a driver will take you and Jessie back to school.”
“Cool,” Vin didn’t ask any questions. He’d ask Jessie about last night on their way back to campus.
When he reached the bottom of the stairs. Jessie silently handed over Vin’s bag and led the way out the front door. To Vin’s surprise Jessie didn’t talk until they were well on their way back to school.
“My uncle, Vin! Really? Why did you have to pick my uncle?”
“What are you talking about?” Vin frowned at Jessie’s outburst.
Jessie’s mouth dropped open. “You really don’t know, do you?”
Vin blew out a breath making his hair float up out of his face. “Are you going to talk in puzzles because I really didn’t get much sleep.”
Jessie held up a hand. “I don’t really want to hear about your little amount of sleep, okay.”
Vin shrugged. “I wasn’t going to share details anyway. He was a hot piece of ass though.”
Smiling at the memory he was completely shocked when his friend punched in him the shoulder. “Ouch, why did you do that?”
“I told you I don’t want to know about you and my uncle!” Jessie shouted.
