BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADD SPOILERS
My teaser this week comes from a book iv been waiting for so long to read. Fangs and Lullabies by Kallysten.
“I know it’s been a long time,” Andrew said blankly, “but you’ll need to get back in the habit of listening when I tell you to do something.”
Nicholas bit back a laugh but did nothing to hide his grin. “As you may recall, listening was never the problem. Obeying is.”
Andrew rolled his eyes at Nicholas. “Well, that needs to change. Because if you want to stay, there’s going to be rules. And get rid of that glare, it’s not going to help you in the slightest.”
Crossing his arms in front of him, Nicholas tried to school his features. Rules? What was he, five? It was becoming harder and harder to remember why he had wanted to come back.
“For one thing, you’ve got to stop being a slob. I have no time or desire to pick up after you.”
Andrew’s pointed looks at the dirty glass and blood container on the counter next to Nicholas were clear enough. With a heavy sigh, Nicholas returned the blood to the fridge and set the glass in the dishwasher. Turning back to Andrew, Nicholas raised an eyebrow, waiting for the next ‘rule.’
“Animal blood is your new diet,” Andrew continued, his gaze sharpening when Nicholas started to protest. “I know what you’re going to say, but no, you can’t get human blood. I can procure animal blood easily enough, but human raises too many questions, and I don’t want anyone to know we’re vampires.”
Nicholas’ annoyance quickly turned into confusion. “Don’t tell me your little crew doesn’t know—”
“They do,” Andrew cut in. “But I trust them. They just moved halfway across the country because I asked them to. They’re not going to betray me.”
Nicholas had known about Andrew’s recent move, but he hadn’t wondered what had prompted it until now. Andrew’s statement brought to mind more questions than it answered, but the gleam in his eyes warned that this was not the time for asking about that. Still, Nicholas had other, more basic questions.
“Why don’t you want anyone to know?” He sneered, baring his teeth. “Ashamed of what you are? You’re not just killing vamps, you’re pretending you’re not one now? Playing daddy to a human ki—”
The growl rising from Andrew’s chest stopped Nicholas’ words in his throat. Andrew pushed away from the door and came forward, eyes pure gold and holding Nicholas where he stood like pins in a butterfly.
“I’m not playing,” he snapped when he was standing toe to toe with Nicholas. “I am his father. And if you value your life, you will never question that again.”
Even when Andrew had discovered that Nicholas had killed, even when Andrew had kicked Nicholas out of his house and out of his life, Nicholas had never been afraid of him. Andrew was his Sire, and he might punish him if he felt he had to, but he wouldn’t kill him; or so Nicholas had thought until that instant. Seeing the flames in Andrew’s gaze, however, he had no doubt that this child—Andrew’s child, but how could that even be possible?—would be reason enough for Andrew to kill.
“All right,” Nicholas said, raising both hands in a peaceful gesture. “If you say he’s your kid, he’s yours.”
“He is,” Andrew muttered, his eyes still daring Nicholas to contradict him.
“All right,” Nicholas repeated, just as docile. “But you can’t fault me for wondering how a vampire fathered a child.”
