“Tell me again why humans like doing this so much,” Kellan Cormac said. He was sitting in his favorite spot, at his favorite restaurant, but neither had improved his mood.
“Doing what?” his friend Liam asked. “Sitting outside with friends, watching the sunset, drinking a beer?” Liam smiled as he settled into the chair across from Kellan and ordered a Shiner beer from the waitress.
“Sunset’s the only time we can sit outside,” Kellan said. It had been one hundred degrees that day. But by seven p.m., the July heat had faded enough to make sitting outside manageable, if not pleasant. “You’ve always been the optimist.”
Liam was the main lawyer in their small town, and despite dealing with divorces and lawsuits all day long, he was the most upbeat person Kellan knew. And Liam was more than a friend. He was Kellan’s brother in every way that counted. Ever since Kellan fled his home country at seventeen years old, Liam had never left his side.
Kellan turned his chair to look at the lake. It was flat. There was no breeze. It was a far cry from the choppy sea where he’d grown up.
Usually, when he found himself in a funk, he concentrated on how lucky he was to even be alive. Thirteen years ago, he’d almost been killed.
Back in Ireland, centuries ago, his ancestors made a pact with the witches that lived outside the nearby town of Lahinch. The pact said the dragons and the witches would always protect each other from threats, no matter what, even if the threats came from the humans who lived nearby, even though the humans were seen as weak, and not worthy of the dragons’ time.
But when Kellan was seventeen years old, the witches became enraged. They felt the humans were encroaching on their fields, and they began to murder the humans, one by one.
Kellan’s parents, the leaders in his clan, were against killing any humans, and they rallied the dragons to try and stop the witches. A battle began, but the witches prevailed. They murdered Kellan’s parents when he was only seventeen.
The vampires had stood by and watched, impervious to the suffering of the humans or the dragons.
With the witches vowing to kill him too, Kellan fled. Quinn, Liam and Brennan went along with him to the States, and they’d been in Texas ever since.
But now was no time for a dark trip down memory lane.
Liam kicked Kellan’s chair. “Someone’s got to be the optimist,” Liam said. “What’s got you so pissed off today?”
Kellan rubbed his face. “I’m not pissed.” He pointed to his five-year-old son who was standing on the low wall that separated the restaurant patio from the lake. “His daycare called. He picked up another child and tossed him off the slide.” Kellan had been in the middle of a meeting with his company’s shareholders when the daycare called. Running out on the shareholders was not a great look on the founder and CEO.
Liam chuckled. “That’s how we played all the time.”
“Yeah, we did, but we aren’t human. And getting thrown around is not great for human kids.”
“You’re not wrong,” Liam said. “Was the kid okay? Am I going to be defending you in a lawsuit soon?”
“God, I hope not,” Kellan replied. “He was fine. This time. But I can’t take any more chances until Declan learns to control himself. I don’t want a kid getting hurt.”
Beside them, their friend Quinn pulled up a chair and sat down. “You’re right,” Quinn said. “Those human bones are fragile.”
Quinn would know about human bones. He was the town’s doctor, and he was just as much of a brother to Kellan as Liam was.
