"Agreed love," he grinned covering her body with his own watching her and how content she was. "Though not to night my dear," he kissed her cheek still smiling down at her holding back for kissing her more all over her body. He didn't want to leave but being out side he couldn't get lost in her like he would have liked with out suffering the consequences. "As much as I want to stay here with ye like this and more," he nuzzled into her neck not being able to help him self. "The sun will be coming up soon and I need to get into bed" Nicholas reminded her and smiled and slowly slid off of her.
Avery nodded, stretching for a moment before getting up and pulling her clothes on as she watched the ocean. At least they weren't very far from home and they still had plenty of time, the sky wasn't even growing light yet, she saw in relief. He'd freaked her out for a second there and she pulled her sweater on over her head with a relieved sigh.
Pulling her hair free, she moved over to hug him tightly, nuzzling against him for a moment before looking up at him. "Come on, then, we'll go home so I can tuck you in," she said teasingly, grinning at the idea.
"Ye love tucking me in love," he teased back tucking his shirt into his back pocket as she moved toward him and hugged her. He smiled to her wrapping an arm around her shoulder and nuzzling into her head before kissing the temple. "If we get back in time we can go for a quickie round two" he joked, the sun was coloring the sky yet but it wasn't to far off from rising. Though they could have a little fun before he passed out.
Smirking, the familiar walked back to the house with Nicholas, keeping herself tucked up against him comfortably. It was nice to walk back with the trees and fields around them, instead of the high walls and dark buildings of the city after so long. This was her favorite place by far, although mostly because it was where Nicholas was. She really didn't have very high standards, she though in amusement as she shut the door behind them. Put Nicholas there and she was happy.
"So, think you have time for a quickie before the sun puts you to sleep?" she purred, heading to the bedroom and discarding her clothing along the way. Either way she was going to bed with him, so it was partly out of practicality. And partly because she liked seeing his reaction.
He moaned watching her undress. It didn't take him long to do the same and stepped out of his pants picking her up and placing her around his waist area and kissing her as he did so. "If ye start doing it I do," he purred trying to move his hips but found it a bit difficult while still trying to make it to their room and on to their bed. "Ye move them sexy hips of ye'rs and I'll do the rest" he added with a grin. He'd always have time for her when ever she wanted it. Even if it was just before he passed out, most time against his will since being with Avery.
Humming, Avery was more than happy to do as he said and the rising sun found them already tucked away in the bed, both dead to the world from their long night. Avery woke up after a few hours and got in the shower, washing off and waking up a little more before dressing. Instead of going through the kitchen, she headed back to the pub down the street. She liked the new people, the new scenery, and not having to worry about going outside by herself for once.
She ate an early lunch, spending some time talking to the few people working there, before heading back home. It was nice to be able to take her time and not look over her shoulder constantly. That, and it was a relief to be able to leave Nicholas home without worrying about someone coming in and staking him while she was gone. That thought had haunted her for years but here, even with them meeting his maker, it didn't seem the way things would happen.
Back in the bedroom, she stripped down and slid in the canopied bed, cuddling up next to him and falling back asleep easily. Avery was still getting used to the odd hours, needing at least some daylight time, but napping seemed to work for her so far. Enough she was conscious during the night, at least.
When night feel Nicholas woke and smiled feeling Avery in his arms again. He knew when she was moving about during the day, and would wake with her if he was able to. Though he was still young to rise during the day, and move out into the sun. There was ways he could step out into the sun quicker with out having to wait centuries, but he doubted the council would let him any where near them.
He kissed her cheek and slid out from under her moving to the bathroom and showering taking his time. It'd felt like day's since he last had a shower, not that he cared he liked spending his time with Avery. Though it was also nice being clean.
Avery didn't wake up until she heard the shower running and stretched out lazily. She debated on bothering him and decided against it. Not if they were going to meet his maker tonight and be on time, she thought with a hint of a smirk on her lips. Getting up when he came out, she stretched again and ambled off to the bathroom herself. It was a silly habit, but she had to shower when she woke up, even if she already had. Otherwise her hair just felt icky.
Drying off and using the blow dryer on her hair again - she hated waiting for hours for it to dry - the woman got dressed almost cheerfully, although she was a bit nervous in fact. But being anxious wasn't going to get her anywhere, she figured. "I hope you have an idea where the club is," she remarked. "Or maybe we can just call a taxi and ask them?"
Nicholas knew she wasn't coming near him of the obvious reasons, but that didn't stop him from pouting and admiring her amazing naked body. As she showered and dried her hair he got dressed tying his hair in a low pony tail at the nape of his neck. He smiled as he saw her walk out of the bath room and got dress. "What not even a kiss?" he asked grinning from ear to ear looking at her as he finished dressing.
"I wouldn't worry love, I am sure William has us already covered on how we're getting there." He said looking to her and walking up behind her moving his arms around her waist. "Did ye really expect me to know were we're going?" he teased kissing her cheek.
Snickering a little at his complaint, she slid her pumps on and tilted her head back to oblige him, giving him a solid kiss and smiling. "Of course, I expected you to use some sort of weird vampire power to sense where he's at and fly or something," she said teasingly, laughing at the idea. Elliot and Jianna had filled in most gaps of her knowledge of vampires over the years, but it was still fun to tease him.
Avery paused when she heard a knock on the door and sighed in defeat that he'd been right. "Sounds like our ride's here, mister know-it-all," she remarked, wiggling free of his grip and heading to the door. The familiar in-training from last night was on the other side and gave her a friendly grin. "I get to be a free taxi service tonight," he supplied, gesturing to the car outside.
"I can see that," she replied dryly, ignoring his once-over and looking back at Nicholas as he ambled out.
"Ye know I would never do that to ye my love," he said laughing to the teasing and shaking his head. He would have done so many thing to her and making her forget if he did anything with his vampiric powers. Though what ever she did she wanted it to be her choice to do.
"Just from experience love," he chuckled fallowing to the door and grinning at the familiar. He shook his head amused at the thought of the familiar's once over look, it reminded him so much of Elliot when they'd first met Avery. "I love ye," he coed into her ear offering his hand to lead her out towards the car. Sending some one to pick them up only made sense because it's been a few life times since he was in Ireland and no longer knew what was what. Let alone which club William owned.
"I love you too," she purred back, as their escort walked back to their car. She let Nicholas lead her there and slid in the backseat first. They were off and headed to the next town in a matter of minutes and Avery occupied herself with looking around as the man drove. He was quiet, unlike talkative Elliot, but she didn't mind in the least. She was busy thinking what to do if Nicholas' maker didn't want them staying.
The drive lasted maybe about half an hour, as the towns were spaced fairly-well apart, something else Avery liked. She hated the crowding of the cities and suburbs and everything else. Out here, you got breathing room. Even though the town they pulled into was a bit bigger and busier, it was still a far cry from the city, something she saw with a grin. The nightclub was classier than the name implied, tucked off the main streets and obviously not open to just anyone.
"Just hold on while I park the car and I'll take you in," the familiar in-training told them, dropping them off at the door and going around the corner. Sure enough, he returned a minute later, swiping a keycard to open the door. Avery kept her arm looped through Nicholas' as they followed him in. The place was fairly dark, windowless, with dim lights illuminating the bodies lounging around.
He smiled and nodded his head, he knew she did it was nice to hear her say it to him. He watched her during their drive as she looked out the window at all the sights they drove by.
Once they were in the city and at the club her happily waited with Avery by the door what they waited for the familiar to escort them into the club. "Love don't worry, it'll be fine." he promised kissing her on top of her head and smiling. He wasn't worried about anything he was just meeting an old friend and well once that happened he'd see.
He smiled and led Avery into the building fallowing the familiar in training and kept hold on Avery for how ever long she needed.
Avery wasn't so much nervous as just anxious, which was probably the same thing in the end, but at least her stomach wasn't twisted up into knots. There were a few curious glances sent their way, but most out of honest curiosity rather than the sneaking, suspicious glares they would get at the city. Here were vampires and their familiars, and some humans who wanted to be one or the other gathered, and no one cared who else was there.
They were taken to a back room that had a bit more light in it, where a man who only looked to be in his thirties or forties was waiting for them. Silver hair was combed back neatly, and gray eyes almost the same color watched them carefully. Avery would have known he was old even without knowing who he was, simply from the feeling she got looking at him. It made her bones ache.
"Ah, Nicholas, it's good to see you again," William remarked, just a hint of rebuke in his tone, but nothing more.
"It's been a while," he said offering him his hand while still keeping another arm around Avery. He smiled to the old vampire then looked around the room they were in. he then said looking back at the elder who'd made him centuries ago. "William, how are ye doin'?" he wondered it had been a long time and they hadn't spoke in years, it was only right to start with the small talk right?
