Rebecca gave a slight moan before asking, “Are you hungry, Felix?”
“Ja. As a vampire, I need extra blood when my emotions run high.”
Rebecca giggled, causing Felix to lift his head. Her eyes sparkled with humor as she asked, “Burns extra calories does it?”
“Something like that, I suppose.”
Rebecca silently tipped her head sideways, which gave him access to her neck.
Leaning forward, Felix tangled his hands in her hair as he gently nipped at her neck. When the sound of her pulse caused his fangs to descend, he bit down and fed. Once his beast was satisfied, Felix retracted his fangs and licked the wound shut.
Rebecca gave a contented sigh as she lay her head on his chest, whispering, “I love you, Felix.”
“I love you too, Kitten. So, am I all forgiven? Will you still marry me?” Felix nervously asked.
Rebecca raised her head, a stunned look on her face as she exclaimed, “Of course, you’re forgiven. What gave you the idea that I was no longer going to marry you?”
Felix dropped his eyes to the ground as he answered, “Well, you stormed out saying, “forget you,” and it sounded kind of... like you considered us over.”
“Oh, Felix,” Rebecca whispered. “I’m sorry I made you feel that way.”
Felix lifted his eyes to gaze into hers once more. He soon found himself lost in her eyes and saw nothing but love them. Rebecca and Felix leaned in, simultaneously, allowing him to capture her lips with his. Felix tilted his head, deepening the kiss, as he nipped at her lower lip.
Rebecca opened her lips for his entrance. Felix quickly took advantage and slipped his tongue into her mouth. He tasted every inch of her mouth before backing away to let her breathe. Rebecca’s head dropped back, and she panted for breath. Felix didn’t stop; he just continued by kissing along her jawline. Then he continued down her neck as his hands slipped up under her shirt.
Rebecca moaned, “Felix, we’re in a parking lot.”
Felix grunted but pulled away all the same. Taking a deep breath, he let it out slowly before saying, “I can’t seem to keep my hands off you, Kitten. However, we should go back in before Bruno comes to get us.”
Felix chuckled, answering, “He’d volunteer in hopes of catching us doing something so that he could annoy us with it. He’s such a child.”
“That’s true, he is. Do you know what he wanted me to do?” Rebecca asked as she laughed.
“This is Bruno you’re talking about, so there is just no telling,” was Felix’s reply as he threw his arm around her shoulder. He turned her toward the hospital and encouraged her to walk.
“He told me I should fill your truck with sand,” Rebecca told him. “That was his first idea, but he said he had a better one. Before he could tell me his second idea, your mom cut him off.”
Felix hissed. “He’s done that to me before, annoying Bruder. He knows how much I hate dirt, yet he is always finding ways to get me or my things dirty.”
“Does that mean I’m going to be cleaning house twenty-four seven?” Rebecca questioned as he opened the door to the ER and let her enter first.
Felix just shrugged and replied, “I suppose that depends on if you are a messy person or not. Now that I think about it, I’ve never seen your room, so I really don’t know how neat you are.”
“Oh...well....” Rebecca coughed. “I’m not the neatest person, but I keep my room clean, for the most part. I’m not afraid to get dirty.”
Rebecca and Felix both turned. Bruno. Felix smacked him upside the head.
“Hey! What was that for?” Bruno asked as he rubbed his head.
“That’s for giving her ideas,” Felix hissed softly.
Bruno pouted at Rebecca as he whined, “You weren’t supposed to tell him. You were just supposed to do it.”
“I’m not going to do that, Bruno. It’s mean, and I’d hate to have to clean up a mess like that, so I’m not going to make someone else do it,” Rebecca scolded purposely.
“Eh, fine, be that way,” Bruno said.
“Bruno, leave those two alone and stop scheming of ways to annoy poor Felix,” Veronica said as she walked up.
Bruno opened his mouth to speak just as we heard the door open.
Everyone turned to look and found Tobias standing there with a small bundle in his arms.
“The baby is here!” Mutter exclaimed as she and Vater went to have the first look at her.
“Everyone, I want you to meet Angelika. She’s six pounds, one ounce, and twenty-one inches long,” Tobias said proudly.
Next, to go see the new baby was Leo and Camilla. Then, Bruno and Veronica. After that was Falco and Kimberly’s turn. Finally, it was Felix and Rebecca’s turn to see the baby. He could tell from the first look Rebecca was hooked.
Angelika was tiny and delicate with a head full of dark brown hair, just like her Vater, but her face was pixie-like, just like her Mutter.
“Oh, she is so precious, Tobias, such a pretty little girl,” Rebecca softly said as she ran a finger down the baby’s cheek.
Little Angelika turned her head and opened her big baby-blue eyes.
Rebecca smiled, and the baby reached up to grab her finger. She was startled and exclaimed, “Oh!”
“She likes you, Kitten,” Felix murmured, yet his voice still drew the baby’s gaze.
“I believe she has found her favorites. She slept through the rest of us,” Mutter said. “Although it does not surprise me since Tobias was always Felix’s favorite Bruder.”
“What do you mean?” Felix asked. “I don’t remember that.”
“Ah, how quickly you forget my Sohn,” Mutter tutted. “Leo was too bossy, and you didn’t appreciate his scolding. Of course, Bruno seemed to find ways to annoy you.”
Rebecca snickered, “That hasn’t changed.”
“That is true. Anyway, you didn’t have much in common with Falco, but Tobias?” Mutter nodded. “Ja, in Tobias, you found happiness. If ever I had to hunt you down for something, I always went to him first, and that is where I found you. I remember you would go to ask him something, and when you got there, you would end up picking up his room for him. Then he would politely say, “thank you, Felix, now what may I do for you?”, you would then proceed to tell him the purpose of your visit. It was so sweet.”
“How did you...?” Felix asked, startled his Mutter’s revelations of things long forgotten.
Mutter chuckled a bit. “Because I followed you one day to see why you were always disappearing into his room. It made a Mutter’s heart glad to see it.”
Felix looked down at Rebecca, who continued to coo at the baby as she listened.
“Sir, I need you to take the baby to the nursery now,” a nurse said from the hall.
Tobias gave the nurse a nod and tried to leave, but the baby wouldn’t let go of Rebecca’s finger.
Smiling down at the baby, Rebecca whispered, “You need to let the nurse take care of your sweet cheeks and go see your mommy. I promise I will be back. I think perhaps I will go clean up my face a bit so that I won’t be so scary looking, yeah?” Then she kissed the back of the baby’s hand, and just like that, little Angelika let go.
“Yes, she has picked her favorites,” Mutter repeated.
Rebecca leaned into Felix’s chest and yawned. “I’m surprised she didn’t scream. I know I look pretty scary right now.”
“How about I take you home to clean up a bit, then we can go to breakfast,” Felix suggested.
“How about you take me to breakfast first? I am starving,” Rebecca argued.
Felix raised an eyebrow. “Okay, as you wish.”
Rebecca frowned. “What are you implying, Felix? Don’t you want to be seen with me? It’s partially your fault I look so rough, you know. Keeping me out until all...” Rebecca paused to yawn, “hours.”
“Nein, I am not ashamed to be seen with you, Kitten, but have you looked at what you are wearing?” Felix questioned.
Rebecca looked down, and Felix saw the horrified look on her face. She gave a little bit of a scream before she said, “I can’t believe I walked out of my house dressed like this!”
Rebecca had on a skimpy tank top with the words ‘I’m too sexy!’ on it and a pair of short, hot pink shorts.
“Wow, I truly was half asleep when I dressed in this. Maybe I should go and change before...” Rebecca yawned again, “before going to eat.”
“I fear if we do that, you won’t get breakfast as sleepy as you are,” Felix commented. “Why don’t you call your Mutter and tell her you’re with me? I’ll take you home with me, and after you sleep a bit, I’ll take you to get some breakfast.”
Rebecca sighed and rubbed her eyes. “I believe you’re right. I’ll probably go to sleep the moment I get in the car. I must have different clothes, Felix. My mom would raise cane about me going out in public dressed like this.”
Felix chuckled, knowing she was right. Honestly, he didn’t want men to see those legs of hers anyway, so he was all for a change of clothes. So, he said, “Alright, we’ll go by your house before breakfast. Hopefully, by the time you awaken, your Mutter will be at work and won’t see how you left the house this morning.”
Rebecca nodded as she once more yawned. Taking out her phone, she quickly called her Mutter and told her where she was and why. After hanging up her phone, she said, “Okay, now Mom knows where I am so that she won’t worry.” Holding out her arms, she asked, “Carry me?”
Felix heard the chuckles at that around the room.
“Of course, Kitten,” Felix agreed as he picked her up and carried her to his car.
