Ayden just entered the world of the supernatural by becoming a new vampire and had great expectations as to what it holds. However, the appearance of the one person he hoped never to see again is making his immortal existence a living hell.


3. The Company President's Son


I stumbled on the stairs and felt Mason's hand reach across my back.

"Ayden, you are definitely drunk," he laughed.

"Thanks for stating the obvious. I think Nina was enacting some sort of revenge," I sighed, "But the look on her face is worth the unholy hangover I'm going to have tomorrow."

Mason and I burst into laughter as we stepped through the door.

"Do you want me to wake you up for work in the morning?" he asked me.

I shook my head, "You drank as much as I did and you worked a double shift. You're a shifter, not Superman."

"Ouch, I think you wounded my pride," Mason put a hand over his heart and pretended to faint.

"Get up. How old are you, two?" I was smiling and Mason opened one eye. He stuck his tongue out at me and hit me with what I soon realized was a pillow from the couch. I loved times like this. When I'm with Mason I get to unleash my inner kid and any serious conversation deteriorates into either complete silliness or a pillow fight. 

Mason threw another well aimed pillow and it hit me in the face, "You are so going down!"

Mason tries to dodge the onslaught of pillows I hurl at him. After the fourth one hits him in the face he surrenders. I flop onto the couch followed by Mason. I let out a soft groan when he lands on top of me.

"Mase, you're my best friend, which is why I have to tell you this. You are fucking heavy, so get off!" I feel his laughter, but he complies.

"Good night," he chuckled and headed to his room. I nodded and fell asleep, cuddling a pillow like my life depended on it.

I groaned. I still had two hours left at work and the representatives from our sister company were starting to get on my nerves. The effects of last night's party were still lingering, my head felt like an elephant was playing jump rope in it. Finally after what felt like an eternity we came to an agreement. I happily escorted the representatives out of the office before collapsing into my chair. Nina waltzed in looking smug.

"Headache?" she asked with a grin.

"You're evil," I complained.

"It's your own fault. You shouldn't have made fun of me," she laughed and handed me some aspirin, "Here."

I quickly swallowed the small white tablets. Nina was still laughing quietly. I narrowed my eyes at her.

"It wasn't just my fault. You set yourself up for it when you didn't believe me about Mason," I smirked slightly, remembering her expression. Nina laughed again, but she became serious soon after.

"I've been meaning to ask, why did the man that Mason kissed not show any reaction?" she drew her brow together.

"The staff there is used to it. Mason often has to fight off women," I shrugged. I didn't need to explain further.

"What about you? You must have some thought about him being gay," she questioned.

"I doesn't bother me," I answered.

"Really?" Nina was astounded. 

"Why would I care if he's gay when I share the same lifestyle," if it was possible, Nina's eyes grew even wider.

"You're gay, too!" I nodded.

"Why is that all the men I'm attracted to turn out to be gay? I don't care if you are, but seriously first Lukas, then Mason and now you! At this rate I'll be single for the rest of my life," Nina continued to rant and I couldn't stifle the laughed that escaped me. She whirled around and glared at me. I held my hand up as a sign of surrender.

"You," she waved a finger in my face, "Go home. You're work is done and I'm sure that as handsome as you are there is a man waiting to take you on a date." 

I didn't correct her on my relationship status and instead gathered my things to go home. I exited the building. I was around a two miles from my house when I felt that I was being watched. I paused to look around. I didn't see anyone, so I shook it off as being slightly hungover. 

That was only one of many times I felt I was being watched over the next week. Finally the weekend rolled around and it was time for me to make my bimonthly visit to Eclipse for a meal. As I was leaving Nina called out to me.

"Ayden, President Bane wants to see you in his office," I nodded and changed my course.I knocked on his door and opened it, sticking my head in.

"You called for me, sir," I said.

Effron Bane smiled at me, "Ah, Ayden, come in." I sat in one of the chairs in front of his desk.

"It has come to my attention that you have not lived here very long. Is that right?" he asked.

"Yes, I moved here from next city over," I answered. He nodded, clearly expecting this answer. The door opened again and Lukas walked in. I stiffened at the sight of my ex.

"There you are," the president said to Lukas before turning back to me, "This is my son, Lukas, I would like for you to stay with him this weekend. He will show you around. You are now dismissed." I could say nothing as the president turned away. I looked at the man I would be stuck all weekend with. I walked out of the office, not waiting for Lukas to follow.

"Ayden," Lukas called, "Ayden, wait. You have to believe that I didn't know my dad would do this."

I snapped, "Like hell you did! This is probably another attempt to get close to me."

He sighed, "Listen, I didn't want to get roped into this either, so we can go wherever you want without complaint. Okay?"

I thought about his compromised and nodded after a moment, "Fine. Meet me at the club named Eclipse."

I waltzed out of the door, making my way to Mason and my dinner.
