What You'll Find Here
Situated above the daily life of the city, Anacosta Heights is a tucked away suburb featuring extravagant neo-gothic inspired mansions. The inhabitants of this neighborhood often show their overwhelming wealth with sports cars lining their long, circular driveways, large pools, and manicured gardens. The homeowners of Anacosta Heights treasure their privacy as seen by the high iron gates to the security personnel present at every entrance.
Dupont Circle is a small suburban neighborhood settled within the serene portion of the southern portion of town. These four-bedroom, single-family homes feature back yards, porches, garages, and far more breathing space then the Village offers. This neighborhood often is more family orientated and even has organized events for children and the neighborhood as a whole.
Settled in the middle of downtown, Hawthorn Village consists of several victorian inspired row houses just off the main street. Due to it's convenience to just about everything, the village can be a tad expensive to live within. However, the residents of this neighborhood often have two to three-story townhouses, often with a one to two-car garage. Many of the houses feature bay windows and/or rooftop terraces with a small fenced-in 'yard'.
River Dale primarily consists of apartments that, despite their age and industrial appearing interior, still hold to the Victorian history that permeates the town. These apartments are often the cheapest option and sport scuffed, older wooden floors, open floor plans, visible beams, and the occasional brick wall.
Sebastian could deny it all he liked. Yet as far as Arlo was concerned, his coven leader was an Incubus. There was just too much damn evidence to believe otherwise. Hell, even Abby had been pretty sure of it and Ab's rarely went around declaring things like that. Besides, she was like...ab biologist or....something equally impressive. She understood living things and their species. That gave her far more credibility than either of them didn't it? Although, vampires weren't exactly living. Maybe it didn't matter. Arlo shook his head lightly in some effort to dismiss those thoughts all the same. The Crusnik all but convinced of his companions' species even if Sebastian remained determined not to commit to the idea. Arlo lent back within his chair for several moments then. The younger vampire further contemplating all they had spoken about tonight. Sebastian's movie idea was nothing short of a stroke of genius. One Arlo was convinced would work....eventually. Yet, that hardly assisted him with that problem he was facing here and now. It had been two years since he'd had any kind of, well, release in that sexual fashion. Sure, maybe his work was doing well because of it and yet that hardly stopped him thinking about all the things he'd adored to do with Abigail. The very things she had strictly said had to wait until they were married and yet even then, it seemed, Abigail might still not be quite as ready for them as he'd hoped. Maybe he shouldn't think about sex as often as he did and yet really, he was certain he could hardly be blamed for it! Not when he hadn't had any in so damn long.
Cheating on Abby would be....easy. Thoe concerts he played were filled with women. The vast majority of them illing to throw themselves at him and yet the idea of hurting his girlfriend was....awful. Arlo had only ever seen her cry a handful of times and yet he'd hated it every time. God, he couldn't stand to see her sad. Worse, he had no desire to imagine himself as the cause of it. He was...ready to marry her and yet even after they were engaged, presuming she even said yes, they would still have to wait several months for that wedding night. God how fucking hard it was to be ....patiently impatient. Especially while Sebastian was over there having sex every second night. Then again, maybe Sebastian was the veritable, well, key so to speak. Even if Seb denied what he was there was still no denying what his venom did. It wouldn't be cheating on Abby if Seb bit him would it? A bite was hardly the same as kissing or touching or anything sexual. That wasn't cheating was it? The soft utterance of Sebastian's name drew the other vampires' attention towards him as both men reclined, Arlo content to query just exactly how Seb's venom worked. The other vampire's inquiry of why he desired to know was met with a lift of Arlo's shoulders once more. Was it wrong to want to feel....good for just a moment? To give his right hand the night off? It would only take a nip right?
Sebastian seemed to contemplate that very suggestion for several moments before assuring him it would take far more than a nip to reach that...level Arlo desired. Arlo's features twisted ever so slightly into a frown. The idea of Sebastian biting him multiple times was....not exactly pleasant. Would it hurt? He'd been bitten by other vampires before in his efforts to feed from them and yet he'd never willingly let another of his kind sink their teeth into his flesh over and over. Then again....once that venom kicked in, would he even feel it? Sebastian shifted forward to rest his beer on the table before rising smoothly to his feet. Arlo, in that moment, content to insist he'd offer Seb....something in return. If he could. His own venom, for tonight however, had to remain strictly off the table. If that night at Sebastian's house had been anything to go by then Sebastian was awfully...handsey when he was high. Arlo hardly trusted himself to deflect the other man well enough if Sebastian's venom was in his veins in turn the way it had been for Matteo. His very mention of that night seemed to all but halt Sebastian in his tracks. The Englishman suddenly stared towards him as if this was news to him. Surely....someone had told Sebastian about that night right?
Sebastian strode suddenly around that table then to sit on the edge of it and before him, the sudden forceful determination of his companion so momentarily prompted a clear surprise to Arlo's features before the other vampire all but demanded that information with the promise of holding up his end of the bargain if he did. Well this was the weirdest foreplay ever. If it could even be called that.
"Bud, do you really not remember any of it?"
That puzzled look on Sebastian's features was surely indication enough of that. Arlo, in that moment, unable to keep that sudden smug simper from finding his lips. It was finally his turn to have something over Seb. The Incubus, however, hardly appeared in the mood for jokes right now. The clear seriousness on Sebastian's features (and Arlo's own want for that venom) prompted a sudden sigh from the Crusnik as he leant back once more, his own empty beer can tossed onto the table.
"Well. Your father-in-law said he needed venom from you but you didn't want any of the blood he had on hand. He kinda reluctantly offered you his arm and said you could have a taste. Man, you grabbed him and bit him in the neck. The French Dude made me get ready to pull you off him if you wouldn't stop.You did stop though. Long enough to tell your Father In Law to his face.....that you wanted to fuck him."
That laughter rose within Arlo's throat then, the vampire unable to prevent the amusement he found in retelling that story- and the very look on Sebastian's face to learn of exactly what he'd told that other man.
"Pretty sure those were your exact words too, bud. You two were awful close to each other then, speaking in French. I don't speak French but I don't need to understand any of it to know whatever you two were saying wasn't the sort of thing you'd ever tell your husband you said. He pulled away first and you let him. He called some woman then and left to go and meet her because you got him all, you know, excited. You, on the other hand, went and professed your love to one of the couches in your living room. You did say it was the greatest blood you'd ever had in your life though. I kinda wanted to try it but I was also pretty fucking sure you would have fought me over it even while you were in la la land. You're super territorial when you want to be- just saying. That blood though.....it smelled like nothing i've ever smelled before. It was incredible. I can't believe you got to taste it!"
Blood from anything other than another vampire so rarely tasted....pleasant to Arlo in any sense and yet he was almost certain that Fae blood would have. Sebastian had all the luck! Even if he didn't exactly remember it. Maybe a tiny part of Arlo was a little bit smug about that. Maybe.
"Can you imagine if you'd actually cheated on your husband with his Father? That's like Young & The Restless shit right there. I can kinda see where you were coming from though. I don't even like men and that French Dude was....like a hard ten out of ten for looks. Dorian looks a fair bit like him though so you're doing pretty well."
Arlo's own shoulders lifted in a shrug. The Crusnik's blue gaze eyeing his companion then as Sebastian contemplated that information.
"Did that earn me a bite yet? This better not bloody hurt."
