Forge looked up and smiled when Blair, freshly showered and dressed for work, sat at the kitchen table opposite him.
“We need some ground rules,” Blair said and reached over to snatch one of the sausage links from Forge’s plate.
“Um, I like your new aftershave and you smell nice?” Forge said. From the other side of the table, Lucas snorted. He looked between them before raising the paper he was reading to cover his face.

Lucas shifted in his chair and snickered.

Declan walked into the kitchen, beelining for the coffee pot.
Blair turned and grabbed his arm. “There is no Vampire Code. Declan, is there a Vampire Code?”

Declan looked down at himself then at Lucas. “Do I look that old?”
Lucas was unable to answer, probably because he was too busy giggling.
“Do I look all right? Does my tie say liaison?” Ben burst into the kitchen and started rifling through the cupboards. “Tea. Must have tea.”
Declan reached over and took one of the tea tins from its place on the counter. He set it softly in front of Ben. “Maybe caffeine isn’t the wisest choice.”
