[center [size11 Nerites, the proper term for male Nereids, are extremely rare among Nereids as they have only a 0.0002% chance of appearing. Though gender seems to have little influence on physical attributes of the species.]]
[center [size11 Nereids are Amphibious, retaining the ability to survive within water or on land with sufficient moisture applied to their skin. Unlike their Naiad cousins they possess gills which allow for them to stay under the surface for as long as they require. Their bodies absorb moisture and salt through the skin as a means of combating Hyponatremia, a sodium deficiency in their blood; often times they will eat salt if they cannot reach a saltwater source.]]
[center [size11 These creatures among the select few species that can control their appearance, taking on a biped form for land and retaining a tail covered in smooth cycloid scales for protection. The tail is in it's most natural state a sliver like color but can change to better camouflage with the coloring of the water through a system of hormone releases linked to emotional distress. There are also non-camouflaging variations to color based on other hormonal levels, specifically hormones linked to mating. This process is similar to the one found in Peacock Flounders.]]
[center [size11 Nereids possess lithe bodies riddled with muscles, their tails are particularly strong as they are used as the primary source of propulsion in the water. In their bipedal form they are completely hairless, save for their head, in a manner similar to cetaceans. While in possession of their tails their genitals are located just below their naval, concealed in slits within their bodies. When they mate they will often drag their desired under the water's surface and swim around them, occasionally rubbing against them until the other responds either negatively or positively to their advances.]]
[center [size11 There is no data on the length of their lifespan, the only recorded deaths come from birthing difficulties or unnatural causes.]]
[center [size11 Their culture advocates freedom in all aspects of behavior, this results in high levels of mating oftentimes without the intention of reproduction. They have close family relationships and crave interactions with others. Most possess a carefree attitude and disregard other cultural traditions relating to other species.]]

[center [size11 Druids are a mutated branch of homo-sapiens, possessing higher levels of active brain tissue. Their brains posses the unique ability to process high levels of energy and stimulation as well as produce their own forms of energy outside of their physical bodies.]]
[center [size11 The mutation occurred sporadically throughout human history sometimes resulting in the creation of myths and legends of heroes but the first verifiable line of Druids appeared around 400 BC in the northern areas of Europe, specifically Scotland, Ireland, and Britain.]]
[center [size11 The most notable line of Druids is those few descendants of Merlin Ambrosius also known as Emrys. Legends tell of his inconceivable knowledge, how he was born with the mind of wise and learned man. His power was so great that even his son who was born of two Druids could not match him. Few lines still remain of him.]]
[center [size11 The Druids are not simply a race but also a religion, dedicated to the pursuit of understanding the gift of [i magic], as it was named in the prescientific cultures, and respect of nature and her creatures. Druids have learned how to rejuvenate their cells so as to cease aging and extend their lifespans however the practice of the latter has been reserved for those High Priests.]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/KkAwWgw.jpg]]
[center [size11 Necromancers are a cultural sub grouping of Druids that resulted after the death of Mordred, Son of Merlin, in 537 AD. During that time they were called the Ladies of Mordred as they were composed solely of female Druids who had been prosecuted by the monarchy for witchcraft. However during the Medieval Ages there was a increase in followers that included male Druids causing them to change their name to The Followers of Mordred. This name was later changed once again by the Druid to Necromancers due to some of their practices, the old followers do not call themselves this.]]
[center [size11 In most areas the cultures are similar, though were they differ is vastly so. While Druids believe in the beauty and power of nature the Necromancers do not stop there and believe that their power gives them the right to break natural law. Specifically the natural laws regarding death and murder. Ritualistic sacrifice and torture are customary in many of their ceremonies. Unlike the Druids who believe that true power comes from the balance of light and dark the Necromancers believe that dark is the source of all great power.]]
[center [size11 While the group as a whole is referred to as Necromancers by the Druid most modern culture classifies them different. One of the most popular classifications of Necromancers is that of Satanists. Famous Necromancers include Mary Shelley, David Berkowitz, Jack the Ripper and Jayne Mansfield.]]

[center [size11 Fae, or Fairies as they are more commonly referred to as, are some of the oldest species in existence. Though there are subtle differences based on the region by which they live. Their lives are usually linked to specific flora, intertwined to their lifespan.]]
[center [size11 The most defining characteristic of the Fae is their wings, which like most insects are composed of chitin. Female Fae have one large pair of wings called the primary with a second smaller pair used for directional movement. Male Fae however have two large pair of wings which are noticeably longer than their female counterparts and have more rounded tips. This allows for male Fae to fly faster than females.]]
[center [size11 Another characteristic is the bioluminescence present in their skin, this allows for them glow with color based on hormonal release. This color is not related to camouflage but to emotional display. They posses irises containing tapetum lucidum which reflects the color from their bioluminescence and allows for them to see in the dark.]]
[center [size11 Due to the fact that their lifespans are tied to that of flora they do not reproduce on their own. They do engage in sexual activities but as a means of bonding or recreational pleasure. The males and females lack testes and ovaries respectively. It is also noted that they do no require physical substance such as food and water so long as their flora is in good health.]]
[center [size11 Human expansion has greatly reduced their numbers however many still flourish in groups of wild pockets. The reduction of their population has made them very hostile towards certain groups of other species, specifically humans. A few, very removed groups of the culture live in cities posing as humans and adapting to the new environment; there is a groups of such living in New York whose souls are connected to Central Park.]]
[center [size11 The Fae have a Matriarchy ruled by the chosen Queen who is referred to by her people as [i Mother]. She is chosen at birth to succeed the former Mother. Each group as their own chosen Mother and when a group secedes from another they elect a Mother until one is chosen genetically. This matriarchy is similar to the hierarchical structure that bees have.]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/duQ1cwk.jpg]]
[center [size11 Elves are distant relatives of the Fae which first appeared in separate text sometime during Seven Hundred AD in Scandinavia. They were recorded by Vikings to be exceptionally beautiful, intelligent, and agile; having the ability to move high up in the trees to scout out their prey. Many legends surround their heritage the most popular being the Norse Gods of Old carved them to perfection out of ice.]]
[center [size11 They are humanoid creatures who, like most inhabitants of that geographical region, are extremely tall. The average height being over six feet for both men and women. Their facial structure features strong jaw lines with high cheek bones and slightly angular forehead. Their eyes, which are predominately blue, are almond shaped and deep-set, along with thin lips. Most have dark hair, or either brown or black shades with a few lines having blonde or red.]]
[center [size11 Elves continue to have a Feudalistic structure to their society with a King descent of the Royal Bloodline, or having married into the Royal Bloodline, being ruler of all populations of Elves. Along with other, smaller, bloodlines of Nobles ruling populations of Elves under the titles of [i Roudon].]]
[center [size11 Their culture puts a paramount on tradition and family honor. To dishonor ones family is considered to be the worst of insults.]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/xVCf5ME.jpg]]
[center [size11 The origins of this species is vastly debated. For a long period of time it was believed that the first Lycanthrope was Lycaon the cannibalistic king who served his son to a very powerful creature who turned him into a wolf. Or that the two founders of Rome, Remus and Romulus, who were raised by Lupa the Mother Wolf. However during this same time Native American Tribes were telling stories of how their warriors changed their shape into that of wolves to protect their people. One of the tribes with the strongest ties to this species is that of the Yakima.]]
[center [size11 Modern science has reveled that each subgroup has actually been formed by a unique strain of virus with similar results in symptoms. Many individuals are born with the virus already embedded in their DNA, where as some are no effected hosts and will pass it on to their children. This virus is highly contagious if it gets into the blood stream where it will then cause violent change in genetic makeup of the individual.]]
[center [size11 This combination of genetic gives way to certain personality traits. They lack the normal level of control that other's possess, giving way to their instinctual desires with little concern for what is socially acceptable. Lycanthropes also have a very competitive nature, which can result in deep rooted rivalries.]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/G3Hmnab.jpg]]
[center [size11 Dæmons originated in Ancient Rome under the rule of Nero. It is said that Nero himself was a victim of a Dæmon, being influenced and driven to madness by the possessive and controlling nature of the creature. While they originated in Rome it was believed for a long period of time that they crawled out of the deepest depths of hell being where the word Demon comes from. The legends of Lucifer suggest that he may have been a Dæmon of significant power.]]
[center [size11 Dæmons are commonly confused to be Vampyres as they are both use Hematophagy as a way of consuming nutrients. However Dæmons are far more powerful than Vampyres, they possess the ability to change their shape and have a level of control over other creatures of the night. Along with those powers they posses the power of hypnosis as their voice can reach certain indistinguishable pitches that lure the individual to a malleable state.. They can create another species with their bite by the conscious release of a virus. This other species is actually that by which they are most commonly mistaken as, Vampyres. Those Vampyres then form an allegiance and micro-society surrounding that Dæmon. These micro-societies are called [i "Covens"]. ]]
[center [size11 Vlad III, more commonly known as Vlad the Impaler or Dracula, is still the most famous Dæmon to have ever existed. And Bram Stoker was a Vampyre of his who he chose to write his story for him.]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/g9skvFV.jpg]]
[center [size11 Vampyres are essentially the offspring of Dæmons, the victims that have been chosen to serve and live with their creator till such a time that they die. As much as they are the offspring they are also considered to be less powerful versions of Dæmons.]]

[center [size11 “You really don’t believe in the idea of true love?” The elf asked as he raised an eyebrow in a disbelieving manner.]]
[center [size11 “I believe in love for sure. After all, Nereids are all about loving others and showing love. But I’m not really sure what you mean by true love. If you mean a love that lasts for an entire lifetime, well, doesn’t that seem a bit unreasonable when you live for thousands of years?” The blonde gave a well-meaning shrug, “It’s fine to love someone, people love others all the time, but loves just temporary, eventually you get bored and move on.”]]
[center [size11 “And what about you? Do you believe in true love? I mean, you said yourself that you didn’t marry for love so what if you meet someone that you’d rather be with, someone who you have ‘true love’ with? What then?” Reese asked, a bit more curious about this answer than his previous questions of the night.]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/0O7pV7l.jpg]]
[center [size11 It was hard to keep up with Maricarmen as she ran through the forest, she moved with grace and agility, sprinting towards whatever it was she honing in on while the doctor fumbled and fell every few feet. He was only barely able to keep her retreating back in view of his cracked glasses. This was her environment now, he could see that plainly, her body had completely adapted to this transformation even with her still in a human form. With this knowledge he could only imagine how being kept leashed had felt for her the last few days.]]
[center [size11 Weston followed Maricarmen to a clearing, the girl had thrown herself to the ground and he saw what had compelled her to run all the way out in the forest. A man was lying wounded on the grass. A large gash was along the man’s neck and Maricarmen was desperately pressing against it, putting pressure on the blood vessels around it as she’d been taught in med school no doubt. The metallic scent in the air was something even a human like Weston could smell and the grass was soaked in blood, no doubt the soil had already absorbed the rest.]]
[center [size11 Working in emergency surgeries he’d seen enough wounds to know which ones had a chance to make it and which ones didn’t. This one never had a chance, there wasn’t a large hospital close enough and with how fast he would have been bleeding with torn arteries they wouldn’t have been able to get a transfusion in time regardless. The paleness of the skin was that of a corpse not a patient and already the eyes were glossy.]]
[center [size11 “Help me,” Maricarmen’s voice carried over to him, a desperate plea for him to rescue this man. [i She’s never lost a patient], he thought. Her expression was one he’d seen on enough nurses to know this was her first death.]]
[center [size11 But there was a way for him to help her, he crossed over to where she was kneeling and pulled her hands away from the bloody wound. “He’s gone. We can’t do anything now,” His voice was calm and even, using the word ‘we’ to share the responsibility of the death. “Take a breath,” He instructed. “Are you injured from the crash?” He doubted she was but he still felt the need to check. “I left my cell phone in the car, I need you to run back there and get it while I stay with the body,” There was no way that Weston would be able to find his car, and even if he did there was no way he’d find his way back to the body if he did make it to his car. “Call Greyson when you reach it and tell him everything then come straight back here. You can handle that, right?”]]

[center [size12 Awkward silence filled the car as they drove through the winding roads towards the outer edge of the town. She thought but making small talk, but knowing Weston like she did talking was sure to be more awkward than the silence.]]

[center [size12 Mari opted for watching the forest pass outside her window. Something about the towering trees felt suffocating, like they were closing in to entrap her. Her thoughts went to the world outside her prison of South Hudson. She was lost in thought when the acrid smell hit her like a brick.]]

[center [size12 It was fetid and underneath it was something she couldn't describe, something had never smelled before. Something she never wished to smell again.]]

[center [size12 The suddenness of it caused an unpleasant yelp to escape her as she tried to push herself away from it. Every instinctive bone in her body was screaming run, get away, that would be the smart thing to do.]]

[center [size12 She was aware of the crash and the blow of the airbag against her chest, but none of that mattered, she was running on her bodies flight response. She was halfway out her door and ready to bolt when something stopped her, and with in the matter of milliseconds she was running towards the epicenter of the smell.]]

[center [size14 It was faint, dulled out by the nausea inducing stench, but Mari could smell blood, and it was a lot. So no matter how strongly her body was telling her to run to safety, her morals drove her towards danger.]]

[center [size12 She busted into the center of clearing and was greeted with the source of the blood. A man, not much older then her, his dark hair was caked in blood from a large bleeding neck wound, he was unconscious and clinging to what little life he had left. Mari could hear the faint beating of his heart as it was fading. She kneeled next to him and, on instinct, covered the wound with her hand and pressed. Hoping the pressure would still the bleeding so she could get him stable.]]

[center [size12 A sound behind her alerted her to someone else joining her in the clearing. Looking back she let go of her breath that she hadn't realized she'd been holding when she saw Weston. "Help me," she said. She knew it was futile, his heart had stopped the second Weston showed up, and even with CPR he had just lost too much blood.]]

[center [size12 The clearing was bathed in moonlight, but it was shrouded in the darkness of what had happened here.]]

[center [size11 Weston could hardly understand her worry. Surely since she had come with him here and she was out strolling through the woods unaccompanied it would be perfectly acceptable to Greyson. However it was certainly getting late and it wouldn’t do to be out much longer. Out of curtesy, and the vague knowledge that it was probably best to keep an eye on her whenever possible, he walked Mari out to her truck.]]
[center [size11 The vehicle was old and battered, nearly a decade or more old and made an awful noise that made sure everyone knew when it had arrived at its destination. It was like some beast roaring as it slowly died. Thus it was utterly unsurprising, though highly inconvenient, when Mari turned the key and it didn’t start. The young woman tried it a few more times before she lifted the hood. Fortunately she seemed to have an idea about what was wrong, it was likely a dead battery. Unfortunately she suggested that they attempt to start it, after Weston informed her that it was likely too late for the mechanic to tow or repair the car, an idea which was met by a long stare. Weston was adept at fixing flesh not vehicles. Rather than fumble through some half-hearted and ultimately fruitless attempts to fix the truck Weston decided to just offer a ride and spare himself the endless embarrassment.]]
[center [size11 It wasn’t too far out to Mrs. Gamez’s residence, but the dark of the night made him drive a little more cautiously. The ride was slow as Weston wasn’t much for small talk. As he was driving down one of the slopes Maricarmen let out a loud noise. It was something like a yelp or perhaps more of a bark and she bolted around in her seat. The noise and movement made him lose control of the wheel for just long enough. The combination of the slop gaining speed on his car and his jerk of the wheel sent his Prius barreling into a tree.]]
[center [size11 The airbag nearly knocked him out, dealing more damage than the actual crash. When he opened his eyes he noticed they were cracked. He turned to ask what had happened only to see that Maricarmen was opening the door and dashing out into the night. The bruised and battered doctor quickly tumbled from the car, falling on to the dirt and trying to keep pace with the girl.]]

[center [size12 Arin was aghast that Reese had called him stupid. Maybe a little naive yes, but he had the finest education growing up and had considered himself beyond average intelligence. He studied advanced Physics and not many people could say that.]]

[center [size12 Arin's voice caught in his throat as Reese took a step closer and began to speak. His voice was like honey and Arin wanted to lean in and just soak in everything about. He didn't even realize he was beginning to lean closer until Reese stopped his seduction and his voice went back to the way it always.]]

[center [size12 The elf composed himself and luckily nobody had noticed his little slip up, other the Reese he assumed. Afterall, the younger male knew what he had been doing. "You really don't believe in the idea of true love?" Arin said with a quizzical eyebrow raise.]]

[center [size11 “Maybe you should try hanging out with more married people,” Arin said after a slightly awkward pause in their conversation. “I’m sure you’d be less likely to get those people into bed.”]]
[center [size11 Reese just stared at the elf, wide blue eyes that were almost silver under the party lights and looked remarkably similar to that of a deer in headlights. By the gods. Was this guy really that clueless about him? He sputtered on a laugh, trying to keep his amusement to himself but ultimately couldn’t help but laugh. The laugh was deep, making his stomach ache slightly until he could calm himself again.]]
[center [size11 “You’re cute when you’re being stupid,” He finally said, his voice had a mirthless edge despite his previous laughter. “Marriage hardly matters when people want something enough, haven’t you ever heard of affairs?”]]
[center [size11 “Besides if I really wanted someone I could have them,” And it was true. “If I wanted all I would have to do is get very close to them,” He took a step forward making the distance between them as close as he could without it being uncomfortable for the other male, “and use my most soothing of voices to lull them into complacency, then I would lure them to water, and then all that would be left to do is [i sing]. They’d end up throwing themselves at me.” Reese had gotten progressively quieter as he spoke causing the elf to instinctively lean in to hear him better.]]
[center [size11 Thus it was a bit startling when the blonde returned to his regular tone of voice, “But, I would never do that. Because that’s pretty much sexual assault and not cool even if it is my biological advantage. Besides it’s hardly as much of a thrill if the person I want doesn’t come of their own free will.”]]

[center [size12 Mari stopped skimming the pages of the journal in her hand at the mention of Greyson. It had been a week since he had left and she was positive he should have been back by now. She still wasn't an expert on werewolf life, but she was sure the person in charge wasn't supposed to be gone this long.]]

[center [size12 "He didn't really tell me much before he left, maybe you should ask Danielle the next time you see her," Mari said skimming some more titles Weston had laying around.]]

[center [size12 "I just hope he comes back with good news," Mari said moving to stare longingly out the window. "I just want to be able to go out and see a movie or something, go out on a date again. I never realized how much I loved doing mundane things until I couldn't."]]

[center [size12 Mari shook her head and turned back to Weston. He wasn't therapist, why would he care about her feelings or wants like that. She wasn't going to burden him with the emotional turmoil she had been feeling since she arrived here and had been place on quasi house arrest.]]

[center [size14 "I should get going," she said moving to the leave. "I'm sure you have a lot of the work to do and the sooner I get home the less trouble I'm likely to be in for leaving.]]

[center [pic https://i.imgur.com/vvyXMk7.jpg]]

[center [size12 “Friends is one word for it, flings is a better one,” It was so foreign to Arin that someone would be so nonchalant about sexual encounters. He supposed he shouldn't have been all that surprised, what with seeing the occasional town people hook up from time to time, but none of them had been as open about their bedroom conquests as Reese was. Then again he had never really spent much time with them as he had with Reese. “Trust me, it’s easier to get someone in your bed than it is to get someone to hang out.”]]

[center [size12 He tried not to think how incredibly lonely it must be to keep companions only for intimacy. Instead he focus on the warm bubbly feeling that he felt knowing that he was apparently one of the few people Reese hung out with and didn't try to sleep with.]]

[center [size12 "Maybe you should try hanging out with more married people," Arin suggested. "I'm sure you'd be less likely to get those people into bed."]]

[center [size11 “Well at least you seem to have made friends then,” Arin sipped at his cup before speaking. His eyes darted towards the ground as the words slipped out of his mouth. Reese could see he was rather uncomfortable about the whole bit.]]
[center [size11 “Friends is one word for it, flings is a better one,” The blonde said casually with a slight roll of his shoulders. It was hard to be friends with people he slept with, the whole friends with benefits thing didn’t really work out too well for a species that was evolved to be alluring enough to make their mates risk death to be with them for even one moment. Thus he usually had to make the decision of wanting friendship or sex from someone quite early on. “Trust me, it’s easier to get someone in your bed than it is to get someone to hang out.”]]

[center [size11 “You seem to have massed quite the collection of journals,” Mari said as she poked about the office and began picking up some of the medical journals. “Have you actually read all of them, or?” Her voice trailed off as she turned back to him.]]
[center [size11 “Yes, well, not absolutely every article in the journals but yes I have read them,” He moved towards his desk, placing his papers from the day on top and turned on his computer so he could transfer his notes from the day onto his log, “There’s really not much point in the journals if I’m not reading them.”]]
[center [size11 “Feel free to browse them and take which ever one’s you think might be beneficial. And if you narrow your focus I might be able to email some of my colleagues from the University Hospital for you to speak with. Most of them are used to working with students and will be happy to give you information. And if you do find a specialist for PICA then I suggest contacting them to see if they’re willing to give you any quotes or other useful information for the paper,” He pulled out his chair and sat down. “Have you heard from Greyson at all?”]]

[center [size14 Hooking up was a foreign concept to the elf. Actually, relations of any sort were beyond his area of expertise. Despite having been married for awhile Arin had never actually had relations with his wife. It had been something him and Mariah had agreed on long ago. She knew his preference and he knew she was too concerned with her studies to ever even think about it.]]

[center [size14 The idea of Reese having relations with anyone didn't sit well in Arin's stomach but he didn't voice his opinions. Reese was an adult and, no matter how much Arin wished he wouldn't, was allowed to seek companionship with whoever he wanted. Arin shifted his weight between his feet and took another drink from his cup.]]

[center [size14 "Well at least you seem to have made friends then," Arin said, unsure if the word friends was the right one needed to describe the people Reese had been talking to. Did you people considered their romantic pursuits friends? He was unsure.]]

[center [pic https://i.imgur.com/CVQ6gdO.jpg]]

[center [size14 Mari was a little hesitant to follow Weston to his house. Greyson had stressed that it was important that she not wander too far between her house and the clinic. Coming here in her off time was probably already pushing her limits, but surely Greyson would be understanding if she was with Weston. There wasn't much trouble she could get into with the good.]]

[center [size14 Mari bit her lip uncertainly as she toyed with the decision on whether to go or not. "Sure, okay," she once she finally made up her mind to go. She followed Weston to his home, with the plan to get what she needed and leave. The less time she spent breaking the rules the better. She was hoping to make a home here in South Hudson and she knew that would be impossible if she caused trouble with the pack.]]

[center [size14 Weston led Mari to a quaint little one story house. From the outside it looked cozy, on the inside it looked like a show house. Everything was meticulously clean, not a thing was out of place. When she entered the living room was to her left with a fancy sectional taking up most of the space. To the right was the kitchen, which was more modern then she had expected. A hallway lined with doors stretched out in front of her and she followed Weston down to the end where he opened the door.]]

[center [size14 This room was probably the only one that showed any signs of life. Books covered the shelf lined walls. On one side was a desk, littered with papers and open books, paired with a nice plush chair. Pushed against the wall was a couch that looked worn and comfortable. A blanket draped the back and a pillow pushed against the arm gave her the sense that he probably slept here more then he did his bedroom.]]

[center [size14 Honestly, to her, the whole thing gave her a homey vibe. She felt waves of contentment just taking up space in this study. "You seem to have massed quite a collection of journals," Mari said reading the edges of some of the books nearest her. "Have you actually read all of them or...?"]]

[center [size11 The taller male let out a dry laugh in response to Reese’s statement, “As if there would be anyone interesting enough in this small part of the world to attract you.” Really? Was he seriously [i that] oblivious? Has he never even looked in the mirror? What did the blonde need to do in order for Arin to understand that he was interested in him? Should he try stripping and pouncing on him? Then again the elf would probably still find a way to think that was a misunderstanding or some kind of innocent act. The idiot.]]
[center [size11 Reese was about to say something when Arin was called away by the tall brunette elf who had been speaking with Iildor earlier. “Ah, I’m afraid I must go be diplomatic for a few minutes. Try not to break too many hearts while I’m gone,” The elf gave a little, and slightly awkward wink as he left.]]
[center [size11 “No promises,” Reese tossed back, deciding that even if Arin was oblivious didn’t mean everyone at the party would be. Maybe getting laid would relax him and take the edge off Arin’s stupidity. It didn’t take long before the young Nerites found a crowd to fawn over him. Flirtatious banter did make the evening more enjoyable for him, most of the individuals weren’t too subtle in their interests but at his point Reese would take what he could get. Sure no one was nearly as attractive as the tall elf prince who was continuously casting his gaze back towards the blonde. For being so oblivious to Reese’s flirting he was certainly taking note of the affections others were laying at the younger man’s feet. The elf was barely able to contain the jealous tint of his glances, anytime the two made even the slightest of eye contact the dark haired male would turn away.]]
[center [size11 As the night wore down the elf found his way back to the blonde, “I see you’re enjoying yourself. If I have to talk about this damn meeting coming up one more time I’m going to lose my mind.”]]
[center [size11 “Fortunately for you I have no idea what you’re talking about. It’s too bad you didn’t get to enjoy the party as much as I did, I think I have a few dates or least a few hookups in my immediate future,” Reese feigned a sort of innocence, as if he hadn’t noticed the annoyed posture Arin had taken every time he’d seen someone flirting with Reese that evening.]]

[center [size11 “Pica,” Maricarmen said as she pulled out her laptop and research materials. “I know I could of chose a more common disease but I wanted to do something a little more difficult to make my paper stand out,” The young women allowed for him to scan over some of the paper and notes, they were well organized but a little varied in focus. “Would any of your journals have information on this?”]]
[center [size11 “I’m not certain, my focus has always been on general surgery and since moving here I’ve put more effort in general diagnosis. I’ve not had much experience with abnormal eating disorders, usually abnormal substances in the digestive system came from children or idiotic teenagers performing dares. I suppose it will depend on the narrowing of your focus, do you want to pursue the forms of Pica that are seen in pregnancy or otherwise caused by hormonal or chemical imbalances, or the consumption of nonfood items and their prevalence in developing countries, or if you want to examine the psychological elements involved in treatment for those instances caused by behavioral disorders,” As he spoke it pointed out certain areas of her notes that had been gathered on the general knowledge of the disorder.]]
[center [size11 “If you narrow that it will tell you where you should start looking for more precise research, and honestly if you find an expert in the field they’re usually more than happy to share their own theses or published articles free of charge. Most doctors with narrow specializations are overjoyed to share their expertise. Besides, contacting the authors is a great way to avoid having to pay for full publications when you only need specific pieces,” That particular piece of advice had been given to him by an upperclassman in graduate school while he was working on his own thesis. Of course he didn’t mention the part where his upperclassman said it was because doctors were all narcissist with god complexes. A strange statement for a medical student.]]
[center [size11 “However I do recall a few articles regarding eating disorders, I don’t know which particular issue they were in but you’re welcome to take them and read through to see if they’ll be helpful. Would you like to go now?” Weston handed the papers back towards her, “I can continue reading through your material there while you look.”]]

[center [size14 Arin scoffed at that, so much that it was actually an almost laugh. "As if there would be anyone interesting enough in this small part of the world to attract you." He wasn't saying the people of South Hudson were ugly, on the contrary, there were actually some pretty attractive people, but Arin was sure Reese had higher standards then the simple people around him.]]

[center [size14 Before Arin could say anymore he was called away by his mother. "Ah I'm afraid I must go be diplomatic for a few minutes. Try not to break too many hearts while I'm gone," Arin gave Reese a wink before going to be the friendly prince everyone knew him as.]]

[center [size14 The party pushed on into the later hours of the night. Mariah had left somewhere between the small conversations Arin having with other party goers. Occasionally he would glance over at Reese and see him at the center of a small group. The elf tried not to get jealous of the attention paid to the other but it was hard.]]

[center [size14 "I see you're enjoying yourself," Arin said when he finally broke free for a moment. "If I have to talk about this damn meeting coming up one more time I'm going to lose my mind."]]

[center [size14 Mari shifted and pulled her laptop out of her bag. She was a little uneasy of letting people read her papers since English wasn't her first language, but she would get past that to get help. Plus it was just a rough draft, she could buff out the grammar errors later.]]

[center [size14 "Pica," Mari said as she pulled up what she had already found on the disease. "I know I could of chose a more common disease but I wanted to do something a little more difficult to make my paper stand out."]]

[center [size14 Mari let Weston read over what she had found so far, giving him time to pick through it and digest. "Would any of your journals have information on this?]]

[center [size11 “Just curious,” Arin said while shrugging. “If she’s working at the clinic then the pack would at least know a little something about her. They’re Dr. Weston’s main patients after all,” Somehow the idea of the lycans needing constant medical attention didn’t surprise Reese in the least.]]
[center [size11 “So the pack is the main source for gossip in town? Back home it was the older ladies, they always poked their noses into everyone’s business but if you needed to know anything you just had to ask,” The blonde said with a smile and light laugh.]]
[center [size11 Reese let a bit of silence settle between the two, Arin wasn’t as much for conversation as the blonde was, and took the opportunity to guzzle down some of his water. “Do you always receive copious amounts of attention wherever you go?” Reese arched an eyebrow as he looked over at the taller elf who was looking out in the crowd. His sea blue eyes followed his gaze and noticed that he was being stared at quite a bit. Though to be honest he stood out more here than he had back home, no one here had the sun kissed skin that Reese did. “Or are your obvious good looks less of a distraction back on your island?”]]
[center [size11 “Oh I’m always catching people’s eyes, no matter where I am I tend to stand out. But honestly it doesn’t just have to do with my appearance, I mean it does help, but Nereids and Nerites have pheromones that help us to attract mates. There was a reason sailors used to sink their ships trying to reach us,” The blonde smiled coyly at the elf. “Of course the better question is whether or not someone catches [i my] eye. Wouldn’t you say?”]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/0O7pV7l.jpg]]
[center [size11 “No, everyone is fine,” The doctor felt relieved to hear that but his relief was quickly followed by confusion as to why the young lady was standing in his doorway if medical assistance wasn’t required. “I came to see if you could help me with my thesis but it more so looks like I could help you to bed.”]]
[center [size11 Weston suppressed a yawn at the word bed but his mind was starting to wake up and his interest now focused on Maricarmen and whatever the subject of her thesis was. “I’m more than used to long nights here in the office, I’m sure you’re aware how long shifts can be at hospitals. What exactly is the subject of your thesis? I have a rather extensive collection of medical journals kept at my home, you’re welcome to them if they would be of use to you?”]]
[center [size11 The doctor was subscribed to at least five journals at the moment, he found it best to stay as up to date on medical matters as possible when he was the only doctor in town. Sure most of his patients did not have conditions that would be published in such journals but there were still a few humans in town and even the partial humans could exhibit symptoms of a [i normal] disease.]]

[center [size14 His voice cracked when he spoke, and he looked like he had been asleep at his computer and his hair had been unbrushed. Mari wondered if he had been home at all that day or if he had just planned on spending the night at his desk. She couldn't say she didn't understand, Mari had been there a time or two herself during med school, when writing her papers and preparing to enter the world of residency. This may have been a rewarding field she was going into but it didn't come with it's downsides too. She only wished right now that she was more then just a resident student, that she could do more by herself to relieve the load off his shoulders.]]
[center [size14 "No, everyone is fine," she said moving into the room. She was little concerned now that he was overworking himself and would get sick. Then who would take care of the sick doctor? "I came to see if you could help me with my thesis but it more so looks like I could help you to bed."]]
[center [size14 Almost instantly Mari blushed, thanking the good lord she had chestnut skin that hid most color changes. Hopefully he hadn't noticed the ever slight change in the color of her cheeks. Hopefully he didn't find an innuendo in what she had said and just saw it as a friendly offering to an exhausted doctor.]]

[center [size14 Arin raised an eyebrow at Reese, because as far as Arin knew Reese wasn't exactly Jake's type. But then again Arin could have been wrong. Reese did have a certain charm that Arin was sure could turn the most rigid hetero male a little gay. Especially if he smiled. But Arin wouldn't tell Reese that.]]
[center [size14 "Just curious," Arin said with a shrug. "If she's working at the clinic then The Pack would at least no a little something about her. They're Dr. Weston's main patients after all."]]
[center [size14 It was true, the elves and Fae had their own equivalent of human doctors, they never had a need to seek out medical attention outside their own village. That left Dr. Weston treating The Pack, the small humans who lived in ignorant bliss in their small town, and the odd hunting accident victim or two. It anyone knew anything about the people that worked in the doctor's office it would be them.]]
[center [size14 Arin looked at the party guest and noticed that a good majority of them were shooting curious, some might have been lustful, glances at the druid standing next to him. "Do you always receive copious amounts of attention wherever you go? Or are you obvious good looks less of a distraction back on your island?"]].

[center [size11 Weston’s eyes seemed to swim with the words in front of him, his head hung forward with the weight of sleep that was beginning to win over the doctor’s workaholic nature. There was a vague noise somewhere in the office but Weston’s tired mind was too foggy to register the fact that Claire had left for the evening, not too much later than Maricarmen had. He looked up slowly from the mess of notes he’d been attempting to organize before he began to doze off. Someone had entered the room but his glossy eyes weren’t able to focus quite yet.]]
[center [size11 Turning slightly in his chair he began looking for his coat, assuming that the individual was a patient. Perhaps the celebration of Vadik’s had escalated to some extent and resulted in some form of injury that he need tend to. It wouldn’t have been the first time that a party ended up at his clinic. Still searching for some white cloth Weston began to regain some semblance of realization and slowly moved to face the “patient” in his doorway. Even with his slightly more aware mind he couldn’t quite make out whom it was that was before him. Of course it took a moment to realize his glasses were no longer on his face, they had likely fallen off while he was staring over his notes.]]
[center [size11 Fortunately Weston’s glasses were exactly where he expected them to be. Sliding them into place over his eyes he was finally able to make out the figure. To both his surprise and confusion it was not a patient but Maricarmen. The young woman was looking at him and Weston was quickly becoming aware of how a mess he must have looked. He’d run his hands through his hair quite a few times so it likely more resembled a bird’s nest than an actual hairdo. ]]
[center [size11 “Ah,” Weston cleared his throat as his voice came out with a cracked sound, “I apologize.” To be honest he wasn’t sure what he was apologizing for but it felt like the correct response. He supposed that the apology could have been for his unkempt appearance. “Has something happened? Is everything alright?” He questioned with heavy concern in his voice, believing that there must have been a change in her situation or health that caused her return to the clinic.]]

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/OscJkME.jpg]]
[center [size11 As expected Arin blushed a deep red, his ears tinging pink with embarrassment at Reese’s flirtatious compliment. “You should actually thank Mariah for this,” Arin said, finding his voice after a few moments of floundering. “She dressed me for this.” The blonde had very little desire to thank the handsome elf’s wife for dressing him. Besides he’d much rather see the darker haired male undressed than all dressed up. And honestly it wasn’t the clothes that Reese really found to be sexy, they were just an excuse to flirt. Not that he needed an excuse.]]
[center [size11 “Have you been talking to many people here tonight?” Arin seemed strangely stiff even compared to his blushing bumbles as he tried to make small talk with the younger man. “I saw you talking to Jake and Miranda. Did they have any information on the woman from the office earlier?”]]
[center [size11 “Hm? No, why would they?” He asked pulling his eyebrows together. “Miranda was introducing me to Jake, he seems nice. He should really work on his come-ons though, pick-up lines start to lose their luster when you’ve heard them all before. You know? Luckily for him he’s cute and I’m never turned off by compliments.”]]

[center [size14 No matter how many times Reese unabashedly complimented Arin's opinion the elf would not stop blushing over it. He'd probably spend the rest of his life blushing, if he could be so lucky to keep his new friend that long.]]

[center [size14 "You could actually thank Mariah for this," Arin said pulling at his shirt. "She dressed me for this."]]

[center [size14 Arin had no shame in admitting that someone else picked his clothes out for him. His go to was jeans and a t-shirt, when it came to party dress her was totally clueless. The best he could do was a suit and that seemed a little over the top for something like this.]]

[center [size14 "Have you talked to many people here tonight?" Arin asked making casual conversation. "I saw you talking to Jake and Miranda. Did they have any information on the woman from the office earlier?"]]

[center [size14 If there was one thing that absolutely killed Maricarmen it was forever being stuck inside of a house without going anywhere. She had been the epitome of social activity back at school and now she spent all weekend watching telenovas while her grandma knitted with her. Boredom was slowing bringing her short life to a close.]]

[center [size14 In an effort to release some of her apathy she decided to work on her homework. She had gotten lucky with Dr. Weston in that she could still continue her school work, but working on a thesis without the help of a college library was a little irksome.]]

[center [size14 "God screw this," Mari said slamming her laptop shut and shoving it into her mochilla on the floor. She picked the bag up and headed towards the door.]]

[center [size14 "Adonde vas?" her grandmother asked just as her hand hit the door.]]

[center [size14 "Voy a la clinica. Necesito ayuda con mi tarea." Mari opened the door and closed it behind her, making a beeline for her truck before her grandmother could stop her. Greyson had said she was only allowed at her house and the clinic, but he never said that she could only go there when she was working.]]

[center [size14 Once at the clinic she debated her idea of coming here. Weston wasn't the most social person she knew, and she highly doubted he would want company, much less to help her with her complicated homework. But ruining his evening sounded better then suffering anymore at home.]]

[center [size14 "Weston," she called out as she entered the back door so as not to scare him. "Are you here?"]]

[center [size11 The two boys parted ways at the back door, with Arin heading back towards the Elven village/city/whatever-they-called-it and Reese going up to his bedroom. The blonde was quick to admit that he hated his temporary room was on the second floor, sure he was used to climbing stairs back home seeing as how his own home like most others were sort of carved into the side of the cliffs. But there was a clear difference between dashing up steps under bright Mediterranean sunlight with a salty breeze and hiking up the wooden stairs in Iildor’s house.]]
[center [size11 Once up in his room he stripped down and stepped into the large shower, normally he’d prefer to take a bath or rather just lounge in the saltwater pool that he sometimes slept in. But he didn’t have the time to soak and stretch out his tail if he was going to look as good as he wanted to for the party. Of course he always looked good but he found that Arin’s eyes sometimes trailed over him when he really put effort into it and he enjoyed the flustered reactions he got when Arin realized what he was doing. The blonde sat on the high ledge in the shower, washing his hair and taking his time slowly exfoliating every inch of his skin with the coarse salt scrub Vadik had given to him. The sweet scent of citrus and figs seemed to seep into him. The scrub was great, he loved the way it made his skin so soft and the salt helped to keep him healthy even when it was combined with other components.]]
[center [size11 After a bit more time than he should have actually spent under the hot spray of water he pulled himself away from the shower. He spent a bit of time figuring out what to wear, the party was technically casual but casual was a relative term with the individuals living in South Hudson and more specifically under their roof. Iildor would likely be wearing a suit, probably one his husband picked out since he was a birthday boy, and Vadik could show up in anything from full leather to a ball gown and no one would bat an eyelash. Reese settled on dark, near black jeans with fading along the thighs and knees, a soft silk blend, grey short sleeved tee that fit rather tightly, and beige boots with black accents. And since he was not particularly acclimated to the cold he added a long black cardigan that fell past his hips and had sleeves that reached past his knuckles.]]
[center [size11 The guests had already started to arrive when Reese finally got downstairs, not that he was particularly bothered by that fact. Vadik was in full host mode and dashed about at an inhuman speed, chatting with friends and thanking guests for coming or for their various gifts. Iildor, who was indeed wearing a suit, stood off with a beautiful woman, tall with dark hair pulled up in a bun. Honestly the man looked more comfortable with her than he ever had with Vadik. Reese ended up near the refreshments table, mostly so he could have plenty of water. The waitress Miranda introduced him to a friend of hers named Jake, apparently the two were members of the local pack. Reese ended up talking, or rather flirting with the two of them until Miranda pointed out that Arin was coming over and pulled Jake away with her after telling Reese to “go get him”.]]
[center [size11 Reese turned to look over at the elven prince and nearly gaped at how the other male looked. The blonde didn’t hear a word that the other said, instead he was focusing on the fit of other’s clothes. “Wow, you look sexier than usual,” He said once Arin had stopped speaking. He sighed in a playful manner as the other began to turn red, “It’s a little unfair of you to look so good when you’re already taken.”]]
