Alexi shrugged, "I honestly can't remember, but I'm sure we did. Everyone lost cargo in the crossing whether it was to pirates or natural causes" He said, nodding to Nick and diving over board.
"Lead the way" He told his son before following him under the water. Once he was close, he noticed his daughter hovering over a large chest.

Diving deeper, Alexi gently moved Serena aside in order to better see the contents of the chest. Eyes widening, he reached down, grasping the ancient wood carefully and began swimming for shore trusting that his kids were following him.

Serena watched her Father in silence, trailing after him as he effortlessly carried the chest to the surface. Once he broke free from the water, Serena swam over and helped him push the chest onto the boat with Maria pulling it up.
"I can't believe this" Alexi said once they were all on board. "I have to ship this to Vlad, he'll know what it is, but it looks pretty serious to me" He told them, stalling any 'what is it' questions.

----

Sami grinned and nodded, heading down the alleyway to check out the large market.
"I've never seen anything like this" Sami said as they walked down the aisles, she was a bit startled at the forwardness of the people as they came forward, touching her trying to get her to come back to their stalls. She so wasn't used to that, but thankfully Carlos was pretty intimidating so she wasn't physically dragged anywhere at least.

Pausing outside a small stall, she grinned as she saw a few of the pretty sun dresses.
"Alayna would love these" She said, reaching up to finger the fabric only to jump about six feet in the air when an arm landed on her's and pulled her forward.
"You like? You want? Here I have your size" The short man said, basically shoving a dress into her arms.

----

Keith sighed, flexing his wings and smiling appreciatively.
"I'm glad to be back as well" He told Alayna, "Yes I have been sleeping fairly well" he chuckled, "I think my body is still trying to recover from everything that happened" He said, he remembered how bad his nights had been before when he had returned from battle last time.

Sighing, he shifted rising to his feet and stretching once again.
"Hungry?' He asked, he hadn't cooked in awhile and he sort of wanted to ease back into the swing of things by doing something he enjoyed. Plus he knew Kristen, Zach and Maddie would probably all want to eat eventually anyway. When they woke up, Keith had yet to see them since they had gotten home the night before, or so he assumed it was the night before.

Maria sucked in a breath, watching as her husband and son disappeared into the cool water. She watched carefully, her hands gripping the metal railing to the point of nearly bending it in her hands. She could see them, swimming further and further down where the water turned from a clear crystal blue, to the dark blue of the night sky. That's when she lost sight of them completely.

Nick led his father down to the ocean floor where Serena was still floating above the chest. He watched as Alexi gathered everything, closed the chest shut and hauled it back up to the surface. Nick gave a grin to his sister and shot up after his father.

Maria was at the end of the ship waiting for them. As Alexi hefted up the chest, Maria pulled it back effortlessly. Nick realized then how large the chest was. It was nearly a trunk.
"Madre de dios." Maria hissed, and Nick blinked as he pulled himself up the ladder back onto the ship.
"What?" Nick asked, because whenever Maria slipped into Spanish, it was never a good thing. But then Alexi was talking about just shipping it back to Vlad, without any explination what so ever.
"Why's it so important?" Nick asked carefully, seeing that Maria was a bit on edge.

----------

"Brace yourself." Carlos muttered to Sami as they started walking around the stalls of the bright and very lively marketplace. He wasn't at all surprised at the many people that came up to Sami, wanting her to buy things, wanting to show her their wares. These merchants lived for the toursits, and they recognized that a person was new to the area by the wide eyes on their faces. They hardly harrassed Carlos because he was a vampire, humans, whether they knew it or not, tended to steer clear of the predators for self-preservation. Secondly, Carlos didn't seem as wide-eyed as Sami. He figured if merchants had a strategy, it was go after the woman and the man would have to pay.

Carlos kept an arm tight around Sami so that she wasn't lost from his side. He kissed her forehead in reassurance that he was with her and no one was going to take her away and make her buy half the merchandise in a store.
"Those are gorgeous." Carlos agreed. Truning to the man trying to shove a dress at Sami, Carlos let his eyes flash in silent warning. "We'll take that one, Senor. For a friend. Thank You." He quickly payed for the dress and tucked the bag tightly under his arm.
"I feel like we're half-way to Christmas shopping." Carlos teased since they had been finding souvenirs for almost everyone.

--------------

Alayna smiled and stepped back to let Keith get up from the bed. "Well, we slept past breakfast." She said, glancing at the clock on her nightstand. It was nearly one in the afternoon. Alayna had underestimated the difficulty of trying to get out of bed when a beauitful angel was sleeping so peacefully and soundly beside her. She honestly hadn't been able to draw herself out of bed for fear of waking Keith, and since she was working from home this week, she allowed herself to fall back asleep.

"So yes, lunch sounds fantastic." Alayna said, glad that she had gone grocery shopping the other day. Now that they were in a new house, Alayna had made sure there would be food for Maddie, as well as Kristen and Zach should they feel the urge for human food. Walking from their side of the house through the hallway let them into the kitchen.

"It's gonna take some getting used to finding things around here." Alayna murmured, still not completely adjusted to the set-up of the new kitchen.
"What do you feel like cooking?" Alayna asked curiously.

Alexi glanced at Nick, "Because this is old, there's coins from Greece and Roman in here, not just Spain. That points to this not just being a regular trip across the Ocean, this is something far more important. Like I said, I don't know what, back then I wasn't to interested in the family business, but I do know Sven and Vlad will want whats in this trunk" Alexi explained to his son, digging inside and pulling out some ancient looking coins. "See these, these are ancient greek, some of the first actually currency used" He handed them to Nick, "Even back then these were worth a fortune, now they're practically priceless" He added as Serena reached out to snag the coin out of Nick's hand.

"Woah" The girl said, shocked and awed that she was holding something so old. She couldn't believe how old they were, this was the money her Uncle had used as a human and that was rather startling.
"Woah indeed" Alexi said with a chuckle. "Either way now we know its not cursed" He said with a grin, winking at his wife.

----

Sami laughed and nodded, huddling closer to Carlos since people didn't seem to bother him.
"Well it can't hurt to get it done early" She said with a laugh as they continued to walk. "Besides who knows when we'll get the oppertunity to Christmas shop once we're both back home and at work again" Sami said with a smirk. Back in Moscow her and Carlos were fairly busy, so maybe getting the shopping done now was a good plan. "Besides our presents will be unique" She added as they stopped once again by another stall, peering inside curiously.

----

Keith shrugged as he walked into the kitchen.
"I dunno, I'll take a peek through the fridge and see whats in there. I was thinking something basic, like club sandwiches" He said opening the fridge.
"That way if Kristen and them want something its easy to reheat" He said, digging about and pulling out the needed ingridents.

Putting the frying pan on the stove and tossing some thick, slices of bacon on it.
"Do you want anything to drink?' He asked as he poured himself fruit juice before putting some bread in the toaster.

Nick's eyes turned to saucers as he listened to his father's explanation and then was handed a coin that looked brittle enough to crumble in his hands. He was holding coins that his uncles had used...when they were human. Nick let that thought sink in slowly, and once it finally hit him, he took a deep breath.
"Whoa." Was the only thing he could muster as he handed his father back the coins. He hardly noticed that Serena said the same thing not too seconds ago.

"We should get this to your brother right away..." Maria murmured. "Did you open it under the water?" she asked.
"Um..." Nick's glance flickered to Serena, and that was enough of an answer for Maria.
"Damn, I hope there was nothing important at the bottom of the chest..." Maria sighed. It seemed to be just a chest of money...but back then, anything could be stored in a chest from money to clothes to important documents and jewelry.

--------------

"Yes they will be extremely unique." Carlos agreed with a small laugh. He mostly followed Sami wherever her interest took her. He enjoyed watching her. Enjoyed seeing the curiosity cross her face, and like an intruige kitten she would wander over to the shop. Carlos chuckled to himself at the thought, but said nothing.
There was a performer just a few shops down. They had a mic and someone else was playing the bongos, another person shaking a maraca. The woman singing had a beautiful voice. Carlos glanced up as the familiar itch of a memory jumped forward. He hardly had a second to warn Sami as it slammed into him.
She was up on the stage, singing her heart out to the music strummed on the guitar. It was a quick song, but she had no trouble keeping pace. Maria was dancing beside her, laughing and clapping along with the music. Carlos was only staring at the singer, mouth slightly agape and struck with absoutle wonder. And it had been a pain to get the singer to come out with them tonight and enjoy the festival.
"I know that look." Carlos glanced side-ways at the vampire next to him. Carlos cleared his throat and pulled his normally laid-back expression back on his face. "She's beautiful. So is your sister."
"Watch it." Carlos muttered. The elder took it as a joke, and Carlos chuckled along with him, but he was mostly serious. Now that they were vampires, Carlos only felt twenty times more protective of his sister. One day she would find her soul mate, and there was no way that Carlos would let it be just any European Vampire that happened to show up.
"What about your girl there?"
Carlos' gaze flickered to the singer as the song ended. Maria hugged the girl, who was now blushing furiously. Maria was saying words of encouragement as they came back over to the table.
"How was it?" the girl asked him, and Carlos ignored his friend's question.
"You were wonderful." Carlos said with a grin, standing from his seat to pull out her chair next to him.


The music stopped. Carlos took a breath out of habit as he regained control of his vision. He was still standing, though he was leaning against a wall. No on was staring at him too oddly and Sami...he sighed in relief, she was still looking around in the shop. Maybe she hadn't noticed. Carlos rubbed his face roughly at the memory, silently willing it to go away. Why...of all the memories...Walking around the corner, Carlos found his mate and wrapped his arms around her, hugging her from behind.
"I love you." he murmured quietly, kissing her shoulder gently.

---------------

"If you start up cooking again, we may need to get you some things." Alayna said, leaning against the sink as Keith rummaged about the kitchen. She didn't want to get in his way, and so she merely smiled lightly as he worked.
"Mmm, sandwiches." Alayna said, smiling in agreement. "I'll have a glass too." She added when Keith asked it she wanted anything to drink. She got herself a glass and it was almost like old times again. Nights spent cooking pasta or steaks or that one time they tried to make home-made-pizza's from scratch with the kids and got flour all over the kitchen.

Alayna found herself lost in the memory, a glass of juice against her lips. She took a sip with a sigh, but there was a pleasant smile on her face. The sizzling smell of bacon must have smelled delicious to the young pup, because the husky came trotting into the kitchen. When she saw Alayna and Keith cooking, Maddie shifted back and rubbed her face.
"Ew...shift-walking..." Maddie groaned and yawned.
"You were asleep just now?" Alayna asked.
"Half-asleep." Maddie answered with a nod. "Mmm...something smells good." she murmured as she started prepping the coffee pot somewhat on auto-pilot.

Alexi waved his hand at Maria, "S'fine, anything important document wise would have detoriated anyway, this has been underwater for gods only knows how long" He said, noting Serena's momentarily crushed look at her mother's words. She hadn't meant to ruin anything valuable, she had just been so excited when she had seen it.
"I'll ship it, express, to Vlad tonight" He added, smiling at the kids reassuringly, Serena looked particularly upset, though she offered him a wry smile in return.

Serena sighed, rubbing her hands over her arms as they sat on the boat. She felt bad after Maria had mentioned any ruined documents, she hadn't even thought of anything like that. She knew Alexi said it was okay but what if she had wrecked something important? Serena always had a stong sense of guilt relating to stuff like this, ever since she was really little and had spilled blood all over her Uncle's important papers. Vlad hadn't cared, but she had cried and cried and to this day she still felt bad about the whole thing.

----

Sami had noticed Carlos' momentary lapse, but she didn't say anything. She knew the vampire was probably bothered enough about it and didn't need her bringing it up.
"I wouldn't mind getting something to drink? Maybe we can find a nice place with a patio? Just have some wine?" She said, turning to look at him. She pressed a kiss to the side of his mouth, a small grin on her face. Maybe getting away from the market and music would help Carlos settle down. If he needed, she didn't mind going back to the boat or even striking of on her own to explore, though she knew there was no way in hell Carlos was going to let her wander around alone, even if she could protect herself.

"Or we could head back, if you want" She offered, smiling serenly so he knew she wasn't bothered either way. She knew visiting places where things were prominent in ones history could bring up both good and bad memories and for the vampires it seemed like they had more bad memories then good. She hoped one day the good would outway the bad for the vampires, Carlos especially.

----

Keith grinned as Maddie came into the kitchen. He was honestly surprised that he didn't a large black wolf following after her.
"Food should be ready soon. You like club sandwiches right? I'm thinking of making some homemade fries as well" Keith added, seeing the seasonings and potatoes nearby, it was super easy to make the fries.

Grinning, he began doing just that, enjoying the simple motion of cutting up the potatoes, dusting them with oil and sprinkling seasoning salt on them before popping them in the oven. As toast popped, he began assembling the sandwiches, putting Zach and Kristen's aside for later. Once the fries were done he added a generous portion to each plate.
"Food" He said, placing a plate in front of each girl. "Enjoy" He said with a grin before sitting down himself, on a stool, and beginning to eat.

Maria sighed. "Good point." She murmured. As Alexi closed up the chest again, Maria rubbed her arms over Serena's. "It's alright love." She said. "It's probably just payment. So coins and the like. It'll be fine." She promised.

"I still can't believe you found the chest." Nick said, glancing from the ancient box to his sister. "I mean we actually found something at the bottom of the ocean on our vacation." He added, giving her his best, crazy happy smile. "And it's from our family too. Like...holy sh-"
"Nicolas." Maria growled gently. Even though she and Alexi swore on ocassion, that was one thing that Maria had pressed against the children doing. At least while she was around.
"Oh come on Mom! This is freaking cool!" Nick said, pointing at the chest. "I think it's awesome! I almost can't wait to get home so Uncle Vlad and Sven can tell us all about it."

----------

"We don't have to go back to the ship just yet." Carlos sighed, still holding Sami to him. Though he loved his mate even more deeply (if that was even possible) because she understood how rattled he was. It wasn't like he showed any outward signs of having experienced a painful-flashback. He wasn't shaking. His face was always a bit pale. He didn't have to breath so his chest wasn't rising and falling heavily. But internally...the memory had shaken him. It had brought back vivid feelings that made Carlos feel extremely guilty, because in his arms was his mate, and no other woman should be in his thoughts.

"Maybe finding a quite place for a drink wouldn't be so bad." Carlos answered after a silent minute. He gave Sami a thankful smile, though his eyes were still a bit dark.

-----------

Maddie's mouth started to water at the single thought of Keith's cooking. It had been so long...but the memories of Keith's food was instantly vivid in her mind as the angel went about the kitchen.
"Yes please." Maddie said, gripping her stomach as it growled like the hungry dog it belonged to. Maddie honestly couldn't remember her last meal. The past few days had been so screwed up, and Maddie was still struggling with what was real and not. Though she kept that quiet. Her hand was fingering with the necklace Keith had charmed, tucked under her shirt gently.

Alayna noticed. Even though she was mostly watching Keith work around the kitchen, she saw Maddie all the same. Over the years, Alayna had become a strong aunt to the children, especially Zach. They always came to her whenever they felt ashamed or embarrassed about something. So much so that Alayna could regonize they were upset just by the way they walked, or the small habbits they had. Zach always shifted in his chair whenever he was upset. Maddie twirled her hair. Or, like now, fiddled with the long chain around her neck as she stirred the sugar about in her coffee. Alayna decided not to say anything though. It had been a trying week. And Keith was done cooking, and the kitchen smelled delicious.

"Mmm." Maddie hummed as she bit into her sandwich. Alayna was right behind her, grinning at Keith thankfully.
"God I missed your cooking Keith." Maddie sighed, her own way of showing how grateful she was that the angel was back. Her mouth was half full from the sandwich though, and that was the last thing she said, aside from humming in contenment as she ate her meal.
"Thank you love." Alayna said after her first bite. As always, Keith's meal was perfect, and it left Alayna full and completely content.

Alexi rolled his eyes playfully at his wife. It always amused him that she was so bothered about the kids swearing, they were basically adults in his mind and he could swear like a sailor when the mood took him. He glanced at Serena who was still a bit withdrawn, despite Nick's enthusiasm.

"You can always skype with Vlad once the chest gets home" Alexi teased his son. "No need to fly home tomorrow" He added, he knew Nick was excited but he wasn't calling this vacation short for anything, even if it was an interesting find. Whatever in the box was important but probably wasn't super important if Vlad hadn't gone looking for it.
Serena nodded at her mother but didn't really respond, she was looking at the box curiousy but not as excited as Nick was.

----

Sami smiled and leaned against Carlos.
"Drink on a patio it is" Sami said, glancing around. "Any idea where we should go?" She asked, she knew Carlos wanted some place quiet so she figured that a side street off the main drag might be a better option.

Seeing a small, yet nice looking restaurant nearby, but in a quieter area, Sami snagged Carlos' hand and led him away.
"Lets try that place" She said, nodding as they walked. As a waiter seated them on the balcony, Sami passed Carlos the wine list while she looked over the menu though she wasn't all that hungry. If she was going to drink she might want a small appitizer so she didn't get to tipsy. Wine did weird things to her.

----

Keith grinned as he nibbled on his own food.
"Well you're both welcome I guess" He said with a small grin as Zach came stumbling down the stairs. Throwing Keith a smile when the angel told him where the food was, grabbing his sandwich and some fries Zach disappeared back upstairs without a word to anyone except a whispered thank you to Keith.

Keith watched Zach go, a bemused expression on his face.
"Er you're welcome?" He called after the fleeing teen boy. "What was that?" He asked curiously, looking from Alayna to Maddie though he didn't want to push. Something was clearly going on but he had no idea what. He was so out of the loop.

"No I don't want to go home yet." Nick agreed, and he smiled at the thought of skyping his uncles once they had the chest. He nudged Serena gently, trying to get her out of the slump she was in.
Don't make me tickle you he warned her gently, though here was a playful growl in his throat when he glanced back at his sister, a devilish grin on his face.

Maria chuckled and she glanced up at the sky. It was late into the afternoon now. They had gotten something of a late start due to the twins sleeping in late after a night of partying. Not that the mother minded.
"Did you guys have any ideas for this evening?" Maria asked gently. "I was telling Serena about this little town your father and I discovered not to far from the villa." Maria explained to Nick.
"Unless you guys want to go night diving?" She added with a smile.

----------------

Carlos merely shook his head gently, looking around curiously as they left the shop. They walked down the street, and Carlos was glad that the music performances had moved in doors with the setting sun. Now the music was more like a buzz and a hum that blaring at him. He let Sami tug him along, and soon they were sitting in a small resturant, over-looking the coastal town, and Carlos could see their ship at the docks.

Sami was handing him the wine list. Carlos gave it a look over once, and grinned when he recognized a name. He ordered the bottle swiftly because that was coming back with them on the ship.
"You'll love this." Carlos said as the waiter poured them each a glass. Carlos held his, swirling the liquid in the glass for a few moments.

-------

Maddie glanced up as Zach walked down to the kitchen. He hardly looked at them. Alayna grew tense, watching the boy merely grab his food and leave. She swallowed down a swig of her juice, turning to glare at Maddie.
The young shifter's mouth fell open under her aunt's accusations. "It's not my fault!" She hissed quietly, and when Keith even questioned her, Maddie sat back on her stool.

"He's leaving." Maddie murmured quietly, almost so quietly Alayna couldn't hear her. "For school. Like you guys did. He wants to go to England or the States." Alayna could see how crest-fallen Maddie was despite the girl's clenched jaw and hard expression. Maddie reached for a few more fries, eating so she didn't have to talk about anything anymore. She just ate quietly, and Alayna didn't press her. She glanced down at the table and started to tidy up the dishes that were empty and put away things they didn't need out anymore.

Serena glared at her twin, though she cracked a small smile as he threatened her. Looking at her parents she glanced between them.
"I think I've had enough diving for today" The blond girl admitted, though she wasn't sure if she wanted to go into town tonight.
"What do you want to do?" She asked Nick as Alexi closed the trunk and secured it below the deck.

"Did you two have plans tonight?" Alexi asked the twins, wondering if they wanted to go back out or if they were doing family stuff tonight.
"Whatever you two want to do is fine" He added, not wanting to pressure his kids into hanging out with them, though he knew the kids would let them know if they needed space.

----

Sami grinned as Carlos ordered the wine.
Once it arrived, she smelled the red coloured liquid appreciatively.
"Mmm" She murmured, taking a small sip of the wine, "Thats incredible" She said softly, taking a bigger sip. Damn that was good wine.
Glancing around, Sami smiled as she saw the boat docked nearby, they really hadn't wandered that far from it.

Giggling, Sami leaned heavily against Carloas as they headed back to the cruise ship.
"Damn that was some strong wine" Sami laughed, letting her mate basically prop her up. She wasn't drunk persay, but she was definitely tipsy.
"Imma need something to eat, soak up some of the booze" She told her mate seriously, ignoring the slightly scandalized look of nearby older couple who was watching them.

----

Keith made a soothing noise.
"I wasn't accusing you of anything Maddie" The angel said, slightly surprised at Alayna's look at the younger teen.
"I was just curious" He added, he had no idea what was going on.

"Thats an awfully big decision" He said, "Zach leaving, no wonder he's not exactly social" He mused, nibbling on a fry. He frowned, it sort of was sad that Zach was leaving but he was sure things would be okay in the long run. If thats what Zach wanted to do then he was sure it was a good decision.

"I'm cool with heading back to the Villa." Nick said with a shrug. He was pretty content with how the day had gone, and now all he actually wanted was to kick back with a drink or two. He grinned at his sister and shrugged again.
"Wouldn't mind a drink or two...." he added.

Maria laughed at Nick quietly and she helped Alexi around the yacht so they could at least head back to the Villa. As the boat sped on, Nick turned his face into the wind and smiled. It was gorgeous here. So much different from Russia. The air was warm and there was a softer smell to it. Back home, things right now were turning cool and crisp. He couldn't get over how different it was.
"Can we just sit outside and chill? I dunno, have a fire or something?" Nick suggested, nudging his twin in curiosity.

-----------

Carlos laughed, holding the bottle of wine in one hand and his other gripping Sami tightly. They're walk back to the ship was taking a bit longer because every now and then, Sami would stumble. Not that he minded. It was actually hilarious.
"My darling, I do believe you're drunk." He told her as they neared the dock. He couldn't help but laugh at her again and he nodded in agreement.

"We'll get back to the room and I'll order you a proper dinner." He promised as they climbed the stairs back onto the ship. Well, mostly Carlos climbed and helped Sami when she stumbled.

Once they were back at the room, Carlos set the bottle of wine down on the table and drew out two glasses.
"Find out want you want from room service love." He told Sami gently as he poured himself a glass and quickly added a few dashes of blood. He took a long sip and sighed contently.
"Do you want another glass?" He asked curiously, holding up his own cup as he watched his mate.

-------------

Maddie didn't say anything. She was merely staring down at her plate.
"Yea." she murmured. "He'll be going away for high school. And I'll be at a University this time next year. Guess that's just the way things go." She sighed, biting into a few more fries before her stomach started to ache that she was full.

"This was a great lunch Keith, thanks." Maddie said, smiling as best she could at the angel and giving Alayna her plate to be washed. She picked up her mug of coffee, which was still a bit warm and she went back up to her new room to finish organizing it to her liking.

"That must have happened last night." Alayna sighed as she dried her hands from the dishes.

Serena grinned, "Sounds fun to me" She said to her twin as they headed back to shore.
"You two are turning into alcoholics" Alexi teased, though he wasn't at all worried about them drinking. "You two can do whatever you want tonight" He glanced at Maria "What would you like to do love? Hang out with the twins or perhaps go dancing in town?" He asked curiously. "Not the clubs the twins went to, but maybe in the town we checked out?" He asked her curiously. He wasn't worried, he was fine with whatever she chose to do.

As they got back to shore, Serena jumped onto the dock, helping Alexi secure the boat. Once that was done, the family headed up to the villa to get ready for the evening.
"We can have a bonfire on the beach" Serena told Nick with a grin, they had a private beach in front of their villa, so it would be perfect for a nice, relaxed night.

----

Sami just laughed as Carlos settled her in the room.
"Sure why not" She said with a smile, accepting another glass of wine. She wasn't super drunk or anything, just jolly. She sipped lightly, letting Carlos take control as he ordered her food. Despite him not liking food, Carlos knew what she liked and what she needed.

As food arrived, Sami beamed. "Mmm" She moaned at the smell.
"For someone who doesn't like food, you sure have fantastic taste" She teased as she finished off her wine and took a big sip of ice cold water. She definitely needed some water after all the wine.

----

"He's probably been thinking about it for awhile" Keith said with a small shrug, he knew Demitri had agonized over the decision before finally springing it on his family.
He finished off his food and handed Alayna his plate.
"Might explaine the tense atmosphere" He added as him and Alayna headed back into their room.

Zach hid in his bedroom, scarfing down his food as his stomach panged with hunger. He couldn't believe how awkward this whole thing was, but he didn't know how else to deal with this. He felt atrocious about how all of this had happened, especially with Maddie being so sick, but he didn't know how else to approach the situation. He knew he had his Uncle's support, but he felt like he was struggling with his family.

Nick laughed at his father's teasing but he didn't answer back. They were on vacation. They were allowed to drink now. And after last night, Nick was so ready to try it all over again. He grinned as Serena agreed to the plan. Yes. Bon fire! They were going to need wood and stuffs that they could probably find around the beach. As Alexi and Serena locked up the yatch, Nick raced about the shore. He moved quickly, hardly visible to Maria in the fading daylight. However, there was a pile of wood and parts of palm trees growing in front of their porch.
"Not too close to the villa Nick." Maria called. Soon, the pile had shifted farther down the shore.

Maria turned to glance at Alexi and smiled. "Bonfire and booze. I haven't had that since my college years." She teased. "Tomorrow we could go dancing though?" Maria asked, passing a hand gently over Alexi's collar, smirking softly.

----------

Carlos laughed gently as Sami praised him for the food. He was sitting next to her on the bed, having set the dinner tray in front of her first.
"I do pay attention to the foods you eat darling." He teased, sipping from his glass. It was content and relaxing. Sipping from the wine, though he'd poured more blood so that the wine didn't burn as much. So now, it was mostly blood and a dash of wine in his glass. Still, it was enough to warm him slightly, but it would take a whole cellar of the wine to actually get him drunk.

Though, Sami's giggles were contagious. He could feel her buzz as though it was his own. So maybe if Sami ended up drunk, Carlos would probably feel the effects. That thought made him laugh softly and he finished his glass, standing to grab the wine bottle for another.

"So did you enjoy our first day on dry land?" Carlos asked. "I apologize for getting distant on you." he added with a sigh as he poured himself a glass.

--------------------

Alayna sighed as she followed after Keith back towards their room. "That's a bit saddening." she admitted, hearing that Zach had most likely been thinking about this for a long time now. Thinking about wanting to get away from the family. Alayna chewed her lip worriedly.
"That definitely explains the tension." Alayna agreed. "But...if it's what he wants..." she trailed off as she sat down on the bed.

Things were going to change if Zach and Maddie were going to be attending school away from home. The house would definitely become more quiet without them....

Alexi laughed, "We can pretend to be young again" He told his wife, winking at her playfully.
"Did you kids want to invite anyone else? Have a bit of a beach party?" He asked the twins. "I can head into town and stock up on enough alcohol for all of us, especially if you guys want to turn this into more of a bash" He said with a grin.

Serena beamed, "That would be fun" She liked the idea of a bonfire beach party. It would be nice and relaxed yet a lot of fun. Besides she was sure they could fund some fun people at the resort that would like to come.
"What do you think?" She asked Nick, not wanting to make any decisions without his input.

----

Sami grinned as she nibbled away at her food, she could tell Carlos was feeling good, not drunk like her, but she was sure that he could feel her buzz.
"Don't apologize" She chastised, "You have nothing to apologize for" She added, "You're entitled to a moment or two occasionally" She added sternly.

Finishing off her meal, Sami felt much more clear headed as she took another sip of her water.
"Well the night is still young" She said with a grin "What shall we do?" She asked curiously, it was a saturday night so the deck would be having a party, if he was up for it.

----

"I know" Keith murmured, "It is a bit sad, but I get the feeling Zach has been feeling distant for awhile. Even before I left" He added, Zach had always been a bit distant with all the family drama.

He sighed, "Clearly something has really bothered the kids" He said, "Besides the stuff with Anna" He added, Maddie seemed all out of sorts, Zach looked miserable and Demitri and Kristen were nowhere to be found.
"While I missed everyone and everything, I didn't miss this" Keith said, letting his head rest on Alayna's shoulder tiredly.

"What are you talking about pretend?" Maria chided teasingly. "I am still young! I don't look a day over nineteen!" She said, going into the house to change out of her bathing suit. Nick rushed past her and Maria laughed while she ran back up to her bedroom.

Outside, Nick was lighting a match when Alexi and Serena caught his attention. The match burned until the wind blew it out while Nick glanced between his sister and Father.
"Uh, sure." Nick said with a shrug. "So long as Nick gets to make fire!" He added, striking another match with a devious grin.

"Careful love, we get burned when we play with fire." Maria called from inside the house. Nick rolled his eyes. Mother would always be a mother, no matter the fact that they were vampire and it took huge ass fire to burn them. A little match and a little bonfire wasn't going to bother him.

-----------------

Carlos sighed in a small bit of relief as Sami told him to stop apologizing. He took another sip from his drink, moving aside Sami's empty dinner tray since she seemed done.
"Well, there are a few clubs across the ship as well as a few deck parties no doubt." Carlos said, nuzzling against Sami's neck softly. He purred contently in the closeness of his mate.

"Unless you've other ideas." Carlos murmured softly, close to Sami's ear. He chuckled gently as he brushed aside a strand of Sami's hair from her neck so he could kiss gently.

-------------

Alayna found herself nodding, and then sighing as Keith rested against her shoulder. She ran her fingers through his hair gently, staying quiet for a few moments as the thoughts seeped into her mind. Yes, she agreed with Keith. She never missed the family drama. There was always something...no wonder Zach wanted to get away from it....

"Wanna just watch movies and relax today?" Alayna asked gently. "I should probably add more balm to your wings..." she mused softly.


Kristen hung up the phone and sighed gently. "The school in the States accepts transfers in the middle of semesters in extreme cases." She said gently, glancing over at Demitri. "However they've implemented a new winter-term program that he can enroll in before the spring semester and that begins at the end of December....so it could be a way for him to adjust to the school before the spring semester starts, and it's after the holidays..." Kristen sighed, rubbing her neck gently. She'd been on the phone all morning, trying to contact the schools to get Zach's transcripts sent out and copied for applications to the new schools he wanted. It had been a long morning, and Kristen was already on her third cup of coffee.

Alexi and Serena both laughed at Nick.
"You're ridiculous" She teased her twin as Alexi headed inside to grab car keys to head into town.
"Why don't you go round up some party goers" Alexi said to his daughter, "Since your twin wants to explore his more pyromaniac ways" He said as he came back outside, dressed to head to the liquor store.

Serena nodded and headed up the path, not bothering to dress as she walked towards the pool. She'd wander around and invite some people, though she'd also ignore others. Grabbing a drink from the bar, Serena set out to make friends, something she was fairly good at.

----

Sami laughed, "You had other ideas in the shower" She rose, "Lets go check out some of these deck parties. I think theres a big pool party going on" She said, grabbing a piece of paper of the bedside table, it told of all the events.
"Yea on deck two theres a pool party" She said, digging in her suitcase for a new swimsuit.

"Do you wanna check it out?" She asked, not wanting to go into the washroom to get ready if Carlos wasn't up for a night out. She wasn't worried either way, but she wouldn't mind going and dancing.

---

Keith grinned, "That sound lovely" He said, letting Alayna pick a movie before showing her his wings and letting her apply the soothing burn balm to the already itching areas.

Demitri rubbed a hand over his face.
"That works, that way he's home for the holidays then he can go and be back not to much later for summer vacation. Might be the easiest way to do this whole thing" The vampire said.
"Go ahead and send everything in" He added, flopping onto a chair next to his wife.
"Have you talked to the kids today?" He asked curiously, he hadn't even seen either of them, though he could hear the TV on in Zach's room.

By the time Nick glanced up again from his small and growing flame, he realized that he was outside alone. Serena was gone and so was Alexi. The small tinge in his chest from their bond wasn't too strained, but now that he noticed it, it became a bit annoying. Normally, it didn't bother him at all...
Nick stroked the fire as Maria came back outside. She was dressed in a long brown skirt and a white belly shirt that covered her shoulder but exposed her lower waist. Nick glanced over as Maria walked closer to the fire.
"Sheesh Mom..." Nick said, shaking his head gently. "Honestly, how does Alexi not have to kill people when you two go out?" he asked.

Maria grinned. "Whoever said he doesn't?" Maria asked curiously and Nick's jaw slipped to the floor. Maria only laughed and Nick chuckled.
"That's sick Mom." He said.
"We're vampires darling. Killing isn't something that makes me squeamish anymore." Maria said, sitting down on the sand while Nick added more woods and palm-froms into the blaze.
"Yea but..." Nick chuckled and shook his head. "Like the other night, this guy came up and wanted to dance with Serena and he grabbed her the wrong way and I wanted to bash his head into the wall." Nick explained, his fangs popping out at the pleasant thought.

"Nick," Maria chided gently. "Don't get into that habit please. If Serena wanted to dance--"
"She didn't." Nick protested.
"But if she did?" Maria questioned gently. "Would you still bash the other man's head into a wall?"
"No..." Nick sighed after a moment. He chucked a log into the fire. "I can't help it sometimes." Nick said.
"I know. You get that from Carlos." Maria said, grinning at her son gently. "He was just as protective over me when we were first turned. Tonight, just try to relax and socialize all right?" Maria said and Nick nodded gently with a smile on his face as the fire blazed up and grew.

--------------

Carlos laughed as Sami managed to push away from him. "You're lucky you're a shifter." he growled gently, falling back against the bed softly. As Sami checked out the party schedule, and discovered there was a pool part up on the deck, Carlos smiled.

"Sure love." He said with a nod. He stood up from the bed and stretched, stripping off his shirt to change into his suit.

----------

Kristen glanced over at her husband and shook her head gently.
"I wanted to get everything taken care of before talking to Zach." She said. "That way he wouldn't have to stress over it or anything." She added, raking her fingers through her hair. It was getting long again. The dirty-blonde strands fell around her shoulders now.
"And I'm giving Maddie at least a day before evening thinking about talking to her..." Kristen murmured, shaking her head gently. With Maddie as an empath, she understood everyone else emotions better than her own, and hardly knew how to deal with them half the time.
Clicking on her laptop, Kristen finalized the emails she had open, waiting for the schools approval. She sighed as everything sent. Now it was just the waiting for the schools to approve Zach's entry and accept his transcript...

Alexi pulled back up to the villa, the entire trunk of the vehicle filled with liquor. He knew it was a lot, but he figured the left overs would last the twins the three weeks. He wasn't at all surprised that the twins were letting loose, they were at that age, he was just glad that they were comfortable enough to hang out and drink around their parents.

Serena grinned, "I'm Serena" She said with a small smile as a tall teen with dark green eyes introduced himself to her as Josh.
"What are you doing tonight?" Josh asked, smiling down at the gorgeous blonde girl in front of him.
"Having a party" She grinned, "Down at our villa, a bonfire on the beach. If you and your friends wanna come" She added, smiling over at the group of about six guys hanging out nearby. She had already invited a gaggle of girls for Nick to flirt with, if he so chose, so now she was finding some eye candy for herself. Josh and his friends were on vacation, no parents, for about a week, it was a group of college friends and about her and Nick's age.
"Sure, we'd love to come" Josh said, glancing at his friends, all of them nodding in agreement as they stared at the gorgeous girl. If there were more girls like her about then of course they'd be there.

----

Sami grinned and disappeared into the washroom to change ino her swimsuit. It was a pool party so there was no pressure to dress up. She did toss on a long tank top to cover herself until they arrived at the pool.

"Shall we go then?" She asked, slipping her feet into her flipflops. She didn't bringing anything else because she knew she'd lose it, once she started drinking she tended to put things down and forget about them. So any necessities were up to Carlos to bring.

----

Demitri nodded in understanding. "Our kids have wonderful timing" He said with a chuckle. "Either way thinks will work out I'm sure of it. Its not like Zach will be gone forever" He added, knowing that woud be the hardest for him and Kristen. They had been mentally preparing for Maddie to go off to University, but neither of them were at all prepared for Zach to leave.
"Well now all we have to do is wait for an acceptance. Though I'm sure Zach will get in, even if its more because of his athletism then his grades"

Maria's head tilted slightly as if she was listening to something in the night that Nick couldn't quite hear. So he stopped for a second and listened. It sounded like a car was pulling up to the villa. Maria grinned.
"Your Father's back, and you've guests to entertain." Maria said, nodding over Nick's shoulder. As Maria left to help Alexi bring in the refreshments, Nick turned around slowly.

One of the girls gasped softly as she caught Nick's eyes. My God he's gorgeous. the girl spoke to one of her friends in Spanish. They all giggled and Nick found himself smirking.
"Welcome ladies." Nick said, his Spanish flawless as he bowed. The girl squealed and ducked behind one of her friends, embarressed that Nick had understood her.
"You are Nicolas?" One of the girls asked in a broken English.
"Yes." Nick answered back with a nod.
"Serena invited us. We did not realize we were so early." Nick smiled at the trio and waved a hand gently.
"No worries. Come inside for a drink?" Nick asked curiously.
"Please." One of the girls nodded. "My name is Hailey. This is my sister, Jessi, and our cousin--"
Nick's eyes darted from the two blondes to the red-head who'd said he was gorgeous.
"Sandra." Hailey introduced.
"Pleasure to meet you all." Nick said as he lead them to the Villa patio where there was already a few handles of alcohol and mixers and ice. "Help yourselves." Nick said, peeking into the house, wondering where his parents were. Now he could hear more people just down the coast and he laughed. Of course, his sister probably invited half of the resort at this point.

----------

Carlos rubbed his face while he waited for Sami to finish changing. Once she came out of the washroom, Carlos smiled at her and nodded.
"Yep. I've got the room key and that's all we need." Carlos said, hugging Sami to him for a moment and before leading them out of the room and up to the deck.

----------------

"Always." Kristen sighed. "They get it from us." She muttered, still holding her head in her hands. She wasn't ready for this. If she was being honest with herself, she had hoped this moment would never come. Not so soon at least. Kristen wasn't ready to think about how it would be without the children in the house....
Tears were starting to form in her eyes and her whole body grew tense. She hadn't let herself think about it at all since Zach brought it up. She hadn't let herself be upset. Kristen took a deep breath, calming her racing heart and she quickly brushed the tears aside.
"Yea." Kristen said weakly with a nod. "You should probably let him know everything went smoothly and stuff." Kristen muttered, because of the two of them, Demitri was much better at keeping himself composed.
"Just like his father." Kristen sighed, glancing at Demitri with a small, sad smile as he mentioned Zach getting into the school for being an amazing athlete.

Alexi grinned as he pulled up to the house. He could already hear voices floating around and he knew Serena had managed to round up some guests.
"Well have to be teenagers tonight love. No one will believe we're Nick and Serena's parents" He said to Maria as she came up to the car and helped him haul the boxes of different liquors into the house.
"Sounds like Serena found some people" He said, watching more teens coming down the path towards the villa. His eyes widened slightly as he saw his daughter walking amongst a group of teenage boys. Chuckling, he let it go, not wanting to stifle Serena, she hadn't even dated yet as far as he knew, and he wasn't about to stop her from having a good night.

Serena smiled as she heard voices.
"My brother" She said, gesturing to Nick, laughing as she saw him with all the different girls.
"Oh wow" Josh said, laughing as his group headed over to the other girls, figuring Josh had already staked a 'claim' on Serena.
"Whats his name?" Josh asked, his mouth close to Serena's ear since Alexi had also managed to get music going.
"Nick" She grinned, glancing over at her parents, "And thats my older brother Alexi and his wife Maria" Serena said, knowing Nick and her parents would hear here and go along with it. Obviously Alexi and Maria wouldn't pass as parents to them in front of humans so therefore they would be siblings.
Alexi snorted into his wine as he heard Serena, "Older brother?" He chuckled, "At least she introduced you as my wife"

----

Sami grinned as she and Carlos headed to the deck. She could hear the music from the hallway and she could practically feel the bass viberating and she grinned.
"We haven't gone dancing in forever" She said with a soft smile at her mate. "At least not club-like dancing" She added as they stepped out onto the deck.

----

"Leave the tough job to me" Demitri teased, dropping a kiss on Kristen's head before disappearing down the hallway to speak to Zach.
Knockng on the door, he entered his son's room, smiling as he sa Zach watching a movie, curled up on his bed.
"Whats up?" Zach asked, sitting up a bit to make room for his Dad.
"Just wanted to tell you that your Mom got everything sent off to our old school. Just waiting to hear back to see if you can get in for the winter semester. So you'll be here for Christmas and probably leaving after, if you get in" He grinned, "Which you will" He added. Zach sighed, smiling at his Dad. "Thanks, I'm glad I'll be here for the holidays" He worried his bottom lip between his teeth.
"You understand why I want to go Dad, right?" Zach asked.
"Of course son" Demitri said, pulling his son against him and sighing. "I did the same thing, even though I wasn't your age when I chose" He grinned, "You're a Draq we all break out on our own at one point" He said, "And no one can blame you for wanting to get away from this drama" He added, hell sometimes he wanted to get away, he couldn't expect a fifteen year old boy to deal with it, and Zach had been dealing with it, admirably.

"Oh I had full intentions of being a flirty teenager tonight." Maria said back to Alexi while they continued to set things up. Pretty soon there was a crowd around the table, and Maria was dishing out cups left and right while the teens helped themselves to the drinks. Nick had already made one and was walking out of the house from adding some blood when Serena came back.

His eyes caught hers from across the crowd. He grinned at her, but then his gaze flickered towards the guy next to her. Maria's words rang in his mind again. Nick took a deep breath and a heavy gulp from his cup. He turned his head sharply as Alexi managed to click on loud music. His grin widened as someone bumped against his side.
"Sorry." It was Sandra, and she looked a bit ruffled. "Someone shoved me." She said, glaring over her shoulder. Nick glanced up in enough time to see the other two girls giggling and running down the shore.
"No worries." Nick said, and he glanced over as he heard his name. Serena was introducing him. He gave the guy a stiff nod, and then tried not to laugh as Serena introduced their parents as their older brother and sister-in-law.
"Oh, you have an older brother too..." Sandra said, her eyes widening at the sight of Alexi.
"Yea...but he's taken." Nick said, as Maria kissed her husband.

"She knows better." Maria teased. "You look more like them then I do. Plus, we wouldn't want to tease all these teenage girls into thinking you're available." She added with a small grin, sipping from her own drink already as some teens started to dance around the fire to the beat of the music.

-------------

"That's because you work at a club." Carlos reminded Sami. The deck was alive with almost everyone who was on this cruise. There was music blaring from speakers scattered all across the pool deck. There were beach volley balls flying all over the place while people splashed around and swam in the pool. The pool bars were lined with people and any empty space was filled with bodies dancing in the warmth of the night.

Carlos grinned and twirled Sami effortessly, drawing her to his chest, pressing his nose to her gently. "We could do it more often if you'd like though." He said, his arms wrapping around her waist softly.

------------

Kristen let her shoulders fall in utter relief as Demitri kissed her head and left the room. She needed a moment to herself. Actually...she should probably just go shower....yea that would be better. Taking a deep breath, Kristen quickly went out of the room and down the hall to the master bedroom.
She started up the shower, turning it to nearly boiling hot. She stripped quickly and slipped under the shower head. The water was hot and it burned, but Kristen hardly felt it as the tears ran down her cheek silently.

Maddie shifted uncomfortably in her bed. She could hear Demitri and Zach talking just a few doors down the hall. She didn't want to listen, but her sensitive hearing wouldn't go away. Maddie picked up her ipod and quickly plugging in her head phones.
Her phone went off at her side and Maddie glanced at it curiously.
Gerry's number flashed as the text appeared. Maddie read it silently and a smile came to her face.
Ice cream? was the single message
You're a God send. Here's the new address. Maddie texted back.
Be there in twenty. Maddie smiled at the answer and quickly lept up from the bed to change and get ready.

Alexi chuckled, "Or for any of those young men to think that you're available" He added, sipping his wine. He wasn't worried about mixing with blood, the taste of alcohol didn't bothter him, but he would drink some blood before he went to bed.
"Looks like the kids are having fun" Alexi said, watching as a tall dark-haired teen took his daughter, though she appeared willing, and lead her onto the beach to dance.

"Want to get a drink?" Josh asked Serena as he glanced over at the table her older brother had set up which was laden with drinks. There was also chips and other goodies though he wasn't interested in any of those.
"Sure" Serena said with a grin as they headed over to get drinks before heading onto the beach where everyone seemed to be dancing.

Winding her arms around Josh's neck, she felt a small shiver of delight course through her as his arms came around her waist. Unlike Jim, Josh was extremely kind to her and well she could tell Josh was attracted to her, he wasn't forward about it. She liked being around the teen and she found herself attracted to him, even if he was a human.

----

Sami laughed, "True, sometimes it might be fun" She said, smiling as he led her onto the makeshift dance floor. She wound her arms around her neck and kissing his cheek.
"Shall we dance or do you want to get in the pool?" She asked, both areas were quite crowded but Sami didn't mind.

She loved the club atmosphere, hence why she worked in one. The dancing and the crowds and just the energy were things she thrived on. She had really come into her own since meeting Carlos and the Draq family, she was a long way off from a girl living in the woods and just surviving.

----

Demitri glanced up as he heard the shower turn on.
"Did you eat?" He asked his son, he could smell the remains of food but he didn't see any.
"Yea Keith cooked" Zach said with a smile.
"Ah lucky boy, I've been hearing raving about Keith's cooking since he started cooking" He teased.
"It was good, I'm glad he's back" Zach said, rubbing his stomach and laughing. The atmosphere was much more relaxed. Demitri had no desire to make things tense again by talking about school.
"Why don't you call some of your friends and go to a movie tonight or something? I'll drive" He offered.
"Really Dad?" Zach asked, eyes wide and hopeful, he hadn't seen his friend in days.
"Yea sure, just let me know when you wanna go" He said with a laugh as Zach dove for his phone. Getting up he left the room, letting his son get ahold of his friends.

"Oh what would you do my good husband, if one of those foolish young men percieved me to be available for his courtship?" Maria asked quietly enough that only Alexi would hear her. She smirked at the edge of her glass, sipping as she glanced at up from under her lashes. God sometimes her husband was a sight she couldn't stop staring at...
At the mention of the children, Maria forced her eyes away to see the twins enjoying the party. "Yes. I told Nick to tone down the protection. He seems to be listening." She added, surprised actually that Serena was drinking with a handsome young man, and Nick was successfully making a young girl blush and laugh. Maria didn't even know what her son was saying, his smile alone was enough to make her chuckle.

"That must have been awesome!" Sandra was saying, leaning back against the table gently to stare up at Nick.
"It was fun." Nick said, sipping from his drink. Sandra did the same. He tilted his head curiously and almost laughed. "You don't have to drink if you don't want to you know."
"I'm starting to get used to it." Sandra said with a shrug. "My cousins have been trying to get me to drink the whole trip since we all just turned eighteen, but whatever you put in this is really good." Sandra said with a small laugh and another sip.
"Well, there's no pressure." Nick said.
"You're sweet Nicolas." Sandra said.
"Okay, a little pressure. Call me Nick." He said, squinting his fingers together to demonstrate the shorter version of his name. Sandra laughed again.
"Nick." She said with a nod. "We should dance." she gasped, hearing the song change and recognizing the fast paced song.
"Sure." Nick said, putting their drinks down together and going with her down to the bonfire. He noticed Serena and the guy dancing and decided to leave it be. She seemed to having a good time, and so long as she was comfortable, Nick could stomach it. Soon though, Sandra had his attention all over again.

---------------

Carlos laughed, swaying gently with Sami in his arms. He couldn't help it.
"That's up to you." He said. "Buuttt, if you don't make a decision quick...we're going to wind up on the dance floor..." Carlos said, making steps slowly towards the nearest dance area, despite the fact that Sami was clinging to his neck.

The music was pounding through the speakers and Carlos was already swaying with the beat of the song and with Sami wrapped in his arms. It was easy for him to fall into the rhymn of the fast songs. It was just like at Maria and Alexi's club.

---------------

Maddie was nearly out of her bedroom door, dressed in jeans, a skin-tight tank top and her denim jacket, bag tossed over her shoulders, hair curled and a splash of makeup, when she ran into Demitri.
"Oh hey! I was just about to find you." Maddie said, smiling lightly. "Gerry and I are going out for ice cream he's--" The doorbell ran and Maddie gave her father a sheepish smile.
"He's here actually. I'll be home for dinner." She added, kissing his cheek and then taking off before he could really say yes or no. She needed to get out of the house for a little while. She felt twenty times better than she had yesterday. She hadn't had an attack since Keith blessed her necklace, and that convinced her Anna wasn't going to be trying anything any time soon at least.

"Hey!" Maddie sighed, opening the door with a grin. Gerry was glancing around and when Maddie walked outside he smiled at her.
"How are you feeling?" He asked and Maddie raised an eye brow curiously.
"Can't you already tell?" she teased.
"You know I don't read you unless I have to." Gerry groaned and Maddie laughed as they walked down to his car. "But you're obviously doing better." He added.
"Yea I slept last night." Maddie skipped, opening the passenger side door and slipping in as Gerry started the car.

Alexi smirked at his wife.
"Wouldn't you like to know" He teased, sipping his drink as he watched the teenagers milling about.
"Who knew our kids could toss together a party in such a short amount of time" He said with a chuckle, glancing back at Maria he nodded in understanding.
"Its good he's toned it down a bit, but I think its mainly because she's okay with whats going on. If she wasn't, he'd probably be right up in there, making sure she was okay" He said with a grin.
"Besides it looks like our son is rather caught up with his own date for this evening" He said, eyeing Sandra curiously for a moment.

Serena leaned on Josh comfortably, they were swaying out of time with the music but neither one of them seemed to care.
"So you're Russian? That's a long way to fly" Josh said, smiling down at the pretty girl.
"Yea, it was a long flight" Serena said with a grin. "So you're from Canada? My aunt is from Canada"
"Oh really? That's awesome. I've never met someone from Russia before" Josh said, cheeks colouring slightly.
Serena just laughed softly, "Its a pretty big country" She said with a grin, eyes shining happily.

----

Sami laughed, "Dance floor it is" She said, letting him pull her along. She didn't mind either way, though she was sure she would end up in the pool at some point.
Moving with the beat, Sami grinned as she felt the crush of people around her. In any other circumstances it would bother her, but when dancing or in a club atmosphere the amount of people didn't bother her.

"Nick would love this DJ" Sami said softly in Carlos' ear, knowing he would hear her over the pounding of the music and the shouts and laughter of the people. She had never used to pay attention to music in clubs beyond being able to dance to it, but Nick was so into it that he had rubbed off on her slightly and she now paid attention to things like that.

----

Demitri smiled as he dropped Zach off at the mall, soon is son was surrounded by his friends and the group of teenage boys was heading into the mall.

Driving back to the house, he was glad that both Maddie and Zach had gotten out of the house with their respective friends, It might take their minds off things.
"I'm home" He said, sticking his head into the bedroom where his wife currently was.
"Maddie's off with Gerry having ice cream and Zach's at the mall with some of his friends for the rest of the afternoon" He added, realizing he hadn't told her before he left.

"Actually I would." Maria sighed, taking another long drink. "Nick was under the impression that if anyone touched me the wrong way, you'd kill them." She kept her voice quiet so that only Alexi would hear her. She grinned, biting on the edge of her cup to reveal her fangs to Alexi for just a moment. She quickly hid them as she turned back around to watch the party.

"Well of course they could throw a party together so quickly! They take after their mother in that aspect." Maria said, grinning as she watched Serena and Nick curiously. She was glad to see them smiling. Glad to see them laughing. She couldn't help but smile as Serena seemed a little off balance. Nick was swaying smoothly with the girl in his arms and Maria sighed.
"And that's what worries me..." Maria murmured. "The instant he gets a trace of distress from her he's all fists and fangs." Maria said, shaking her head gently. "Much too much like Carlos..."

Maria finished her drink with a content sigh. "Shall we going the crowd?" Maria asked, putting down her glass and tugging at Alexi's shorts, swaying towards the large fire that the teens were dancing around to the beat of the music.

--------------

Carlos kept his arms wrapped around Sami's waist while they swayed on the dance floor. He smiled, content to have Sami against him, and he danced with her effortlessly, keeping up to the beat of the music as the crowd slowly grew around them on the dance floor.

Hearing Sami mention the D.J. Carlos refocused on the tunes and he nodded in agreement.
"Nick would. The lad has an ear for the music." Carlos agreed, kissing Sami's temple gently.

------------

Kristen glanced up as Demitri came back into the house. She gave him a gentle smile as she ran a brush through her hair. She had just stepped out of the shower. Her eyes were green and a bit puffy from crying before she washed up. She had heard Maddie and Zach talking to Demitri and had heard Demitri left with their son. As soon as she was alone, Kristen had finally broken down. She'd stayed in the shower until the water ran cold, and finally washed up, dried off and changed into a simple shirt--another one of Demitri's--and a pair of loose black yoga pants.

"I heard you talking to them before leaving." Kristen reassured Demitri, starting to twist her long hair into a braid. She was going to have to cut it against soon...it was trailing down to almost her mid-back.
"It's good that they're out having fun for a while." Kristen sighed, tossing her brush onto the bed after tying off her braid.

Alexi grinned, barring his own fangs for a moment.
"I would kill anyone here who touched you love. You know I have no problem ripping through every single person here" He said with a small grin, smiling at her. "So don't tempt me, or we'll be covering up a very large slaughter" He added with a chuckle.

Alexi watched their children, smiling softly as his wife spoke.
"That may not be a bad thing. Serena's very timid for a vampire, she doesnt seem to have any of the natural aggressin most of us have. The fact that Nck is so protective is probably a good thing" He said softly. He was just as protective as Nick was of his family, he was just better at restraining himself then Nick was.

"I guess" He sighed dramatically, letting his wife drag him towards the fire, though he didn't mind.
"Shall we dance?" He asked wrapping his arms around her waist.

---

Sami laughed, "I've never seen such a music oriented person" She said with a grin, leaning against Carlos comfortably. This felt amazing, she couldn't believe this was her life.

"Is it weird that I feel like we're in a dream?" She asked softly. "I still cant believe that this is my life" She added with a grin, nose wrinkling slightly as she spoke.

---

Demitri nodded in agreement.
"They deserve to have fun. You do know that this isn't for ever. Zach's only going to be gone for two years, not counting the holidays" He said, dropping a kiss on his wife's head.
He knew why she was so upset.

"What do you want to do tonight while our kids are off having fun without us? We could go out, maybe have a nice dinner?" He offered, it had been awhile since he and Kristen had had any time just the two of them.
