Arlo had better be glad he found him when he did. It didn't look like things were going to pan out for him otherwise. He may not have liked Arlo on first glance but he'd come to be protective over the younger vamp, if only because he was important and had skills that were needed. Or wanted, rather. Damon could think of many ways to use those skills. Arlo waved at him and he chuckled. "Luckily for you, I'll help you finish it." About that time, Isolt stepped up and he noted the way Arlo looked at her, like he recognied her. He recalled that Arlo had mentioned her before because he couldn't see how Damon had managed to get her. It was still a mystery to him most of the time, as it were. Isolt put on a good display of prowess, punching the other vampire. Damon caught the whiff of blood, not thinking much of it at first before he realized who it might affect. His gaze swept to Arlo, his hand twitching as he caught his eye, reminding him of their lesson at the club. He didn't want Arlo losing control, not here.
It seemed the display of his own powers would do the trick, though. He sent bodies flying as he threw a wave of energy at them, cringing as one body almost hit Arlo. Whoops. He gave him an apologetic shrug. But a snarl left his lips as he turned, seeing another vampire jumping at Isolt. He sliced the air with his finger, sending the man's head rolling. He barely heard Arlo's exclamation through the heat in his ears. This was what he lived for. He saw Arlo out of the corner of his eyes pressing himself to the wall as if he could disappear right through it. But as Claire started roaring her revenge, he saw a web suddenly spin up seemingly out of nowhere, enveloping her body before electricity sent her into a gasping fit. Damon could sense the energy and his gaze turned to Arlo, one brow raised in amusement. So this was another one of his powers. He watched Claire fall to the ground before turning his attention back on Arlo. Arlo moved to thank them before taking in how they were dressed. He frowned, asking if they were at dinner. "No prob, Arlo. Trouble has a way of finding you, it would seem." His eyes gleamed teasingly.
Then Arlo told him that he'd made his hunting harder because he told him not to eat patrons of the tavern. He tilted his head. "If you let a coven help you, food would be easier to come by. It's a hard world to live in, especially when you hunt alone." Then he asked if this was the whole coven. Damon chuckled when he asked about them coming after him and Isolt. Damon turned to glance back at Isolt then grinned at Arlo. "Let them try." His eyes gleamed daringly. He couldn't be more proud of the leader Isolt had become. He would defend her no matter what. He would never let any harm come to her. When Claire had given the cue to attack, all he could think about was keeping them from her, by whatever means necessary. He would be lying if he said he didn't enjoy harming others as well, but he never took his eyes off of Isolt for long, making sure she was always protected. But the look she gave him when she saw him with the vampire's heart in his hand...he didn't know what to do with that look. She looked horrified.
She whispered to him to stop, her brow furrowing. He let the heart drop from his hand, his face softening as he looked into her eyes. Then her own gae moved to Claire as she went down and she answered Arlo, telling him it wasn't even her coven, but someone called Xavier. She said they needed to get back to the pub and he scowled, raising a brow in surprise. Was she scared of them? Or was it more that she didn't want to see another fight like that? Didn't want to see HIM like that? He was quiet, looking down for a second before he nodded. "Okay, let's go." He glanced up at her, searching her expression. Then he started walking back to the car, waving over his shoulder at Arlo. "Come on, bud."
