Who knew walking out at night was so fun. The stars the moon the life in the dark, It made her feel alive to work the night shifts as a security guard. Or it was until she got fired because of one mistake she didn’t even make but just because it was her shift she got booted to the curb. Now teaching self-defense classes she settles in. Or till she comes across a kidnapping in process on one of her nightly jogs and jumps in to save the poor guy. When everyone refuses to let you out of the house, you tend to get restless and naive about the world outside the walls of your home. Like how taking blood from humans who clearly are not who they say they are is not a smart idea. So he gets tossed in a van or they try to and along comes a human who saves his ass. Oh did I mention his parents are asses and he just realized his savior is his mate? Name: Alyxander (Alyx) Lessard Gender: Male Age: Looks= early college, 18 or 19; actual= about 30 Looks: (brown eyes and black hair) ~~~ 'I should have stayed home.' All Alyxander wanted was a peaceful walk around town. Especially since he hadn't been out of the confines of his own home for almost 25 years; or so. After a while, he just lost count. Perhaps stopping for a drink from a passer-by hadn't been such a good idea, but when that's what someone has grown up with, that's what they consider to status quo. The humans in his home had never minded. Then again, they also didn't happen to be vampire slayers. Curiosity really does kill, and not just cats. He wasn't dead yet, but if things continued the way they were, there was little doubt of that. Especially not after Alyx saw the wooden stakes sitting in a box against the wall of the van. He tested the ropes that bound his wrists behind him, but the bindings didn't budge. Probably laced with silver. This was just his luck. 'How was I supposed to know? Humans all smell the same. I guess my parents should have paid more attention to that aspect of my education.' They never would have expected him to sneak out though. But how could he not want to, with them bringing in picture after picture, woman after woman, to find him a 'suitable wife'? It was suffocating and ridiculous. He wasn't that old. And he didn't want to marry someone who he barely knew, just because his parents thought she was 'the one'. Marriage was a game to them. What was better? Putting up with the endless visits and lectures; or being trapped in the back of a vampire slayer's van?
