The three of us lay naked and entangled together, with me in the middle. “I can’t believe I am going to be a Dad or an uncle,” Titus says as he strokes my arm.
“I buried never being able to have kids centuries ago,” Felix says with his lips pressed against my temple. “You really are giving us everything,” he whispers.
“I know I’m young, but we will be great parents,” I say as I picture Titus and Felix taking in turns holding the baby. It’s enough to make my heart explode.
Titus rests his hand over my belly, “I promise to keep you both safe, no matter what.”
“I love you both,” I say.
“I love you,” Felix says kissing my head.
“I love you,” Titus bends down and places a soft kiss against my belly. “Both of you,” he smiles into my skin.
I push my hands into his hair, and he begins to start kissing down, but I pull him back up by his hair. “If you start that, we will never make it out of this room.” We had already been in here for hours.
“What’s wrong with that?” Titus asks with a smirk. Felix moves his hand to my nipple.
“You two are impossible!” I jump out of bed away from their greedy hands. “We need to go spend time with Alex and Mabel,” I start dressing myself.
Titus rolls face first into the bed as Felix groans disapprovingly.
“You two are so dramatic! We just had sex enough times to make up for the time apart,” I smile at them.
“Not even close,” Titus smirks.
Felix reaches for me, “let us show you how many more times we need to fuck you.”
“A couple hours with our best friends and then more sex, deal?”
They both sigh loudly and I roll my eyes at them.
As soon as we get back into the lounge room, Mabel runs into my arms. “I’m going to be an aunty!” She yells happily.
Alex hugs both the boys. “Congratulations,” he smiles at all of us.
“Do you have any idea how far along I am?” I ask Mabel.
“A month, maybe a couple days more,” she moves to the boys to hug them both. “Our family is growing!”
Alex grabs a bottle of whiskey and Mabel heats up some tea, before we all sit on the black leather lounges together.
“What was it like?” Felix asks Alex.
“It’s not that bad for us, I mean it’s not as great as Earth, but it’s still okay. For the fay though-” Alex looks away from me. “They are tortured,” he whispers.
Felix’s grip tightens around my hand and Titus looks pale. If that’s even possible for a vampire.
“So we keep her out of hell,” Felix says.
“How are you going to do that?” I ask.
“The only way to keep her like this is if she murders creatures like us,” Mabel reminds everyone.
“We turn her,” Titus says, and everyone looks at him.
“What?” I say.
“When you start to age, which is a long way off, we turn you into a vampire. Then we get you forever.”
“And if you don’t want to be a vampire, we go to hell with you,” Felix adds. “We will protect you no matter what.”
It could be the hormones, but I can’t stop my eyes from welling with tears. “Will you both really feel the same for me if I’m not you know...a fairy? You won’t be drinking my blood,” I whisper.
“You really don’t understand our love for you, do you?” Titus says.
“We will have you forever Cami,” Felix says.
I smile at them both, I was pretty much ready to take them both into the bedroom again. “So what did you guys do when I was gone?”
“Pretty much planned your rescue, that’s why I drew your blood before you left. I had it under my fingernail before putting it into a vile. It meant I could keep track of you,” Mabel says.
“We knew the fay would celebrate the twentieth anniversary since the war, so we planned to bust you out then,” Titus adds.
I smile, “that’s what Carling and I planned too.”
“Carling was the girl we saw at the end?” Titus asks.
I nod my head. “She’s my cousin, my only blood relative left. She wants this war over just like us, she hates violence.”
“Maybe there is hope for the fay yet,” Alex says.
“She believes that if she lives a nonviolent life, that she will be able to return to heaven when she dies.”
Felix shrugs. “It’s possible I guess, no one really knows the rules with this whole shit show.”
“So, what’s our next move then?” Mabel asks.
“Carling wants to fight for peace, I think that we should too.”
“With the fay?” Alex scoffs, and Felix sends him a stern glare. “I mean it’s possible, I guess,” he recovers.
“We haven’t even convinced all the creatures to our side, let alone to peace with the fay,” Mabel says.
“We will find a way to convince them, whatever it takes,” I say.
