"- yes, light of my life?"

God, this is going to sound so insane.

"Can you," she begins carefully, "go catch some sort of ocean critter, and then bring it back up here to drain the blood of. Into a cup. So I can, uh. Drink. It."

"I think you skipped some steps there love."

"Well it's just that I think I'm actually really craving blood right now and, a-and. I. It seems like a very cheap test to see if it's just a weird urge that will gross me out if it becomes reality or if it's. Something else. And if it's the something else it might explain what... is going on with me," she says, picking through her words in careful little packages, because she feels more than a little crazy, actually, but she doesn't want to sound like it.

James opens his mouth then closes his mouth. "I do not think people turn into vampires from sufficient exposure but admittedly have not heard of anyone who has been exposed to a single vampire for quite as long as you have without turning," he did carefully.

Permalink

"Iiiiiiii do not think that is what is going on with me," she says, swallowing. Oh, boy. "U-um. James, I uh. I can't help but notice that I have a. A paunch." She motions to her abdomen. "That wasn't there two weeks ago. And I've been having very vampire centric hallucinations, and, and inexplicable dreams about being a mother, and food cravings, and nausea, and, and. How well tested was that sterility of yours, because we tested the everliving shit out of it."

He opens and shuts his mouth several times before saying, "I will be right back," and zipping out of the room.

Yvette waits, and tries not to fret. She can’t be pregnant, right, that’s crazy, and impossible, and. Wow, she really hopes that if she is pregnant that James didn’t sire any children before her. That... would complicate things. A lot. Especially since if she is pregnant, this is way too fast, she shouldn’t be showing after getting knocked up a week ago! ... maybe two weeks ago. Ugh. What does that mean for the child, what does that mean for her, is a half vampire baby even viable? Can a fragile human woman even give birth to a super strong half invincible baby without breaking her entire pelvis?

It’s very inconvenient that she sent her husband away to fetch blood for her to drink, because actually she’d really like it if he could hold her while she freaks out about this impossible thing that is definitely not happening!

He returns anon, still dripping salt water but holding a glass full of... well. That definitely is blood.

Permalink

She expects to find it gross or offputting or something, but. No. No that just looks delicious. Yvette Orland downs the glass of blood in one long series of swallows, without any kind of pause. Then she has the good manners to look embarrassed about it.

".... So, definitely something weird going on," she says a little faintly, handing the empty glass back to her husband.

James takes it back silently, not shaking only by virtue of being a vampire. "Is... this is too early, isn't it?"

Permalink

“For me to be showing for a pregnancy? Oh, yes, yes very much. And you’re definitely the father, I wasn’t - where would I have found the time.

Permalink

"I would have been able to smell it, if you were, it was not in question - how far along would this be?"

Permalink

“God, I don’t know, I’ve never been pregnant before, James. I didn’t even work in a maternity ward. A... month or two? I think? Maybe more? I really hope it was our wedding night sex that did it because this is so much more alarming than it already was if it was just from a, a week ago.”

Permalink

"I think... we should get to America sooner rather than later."

Permalink

“Yep! Fast as this poor boat can go.”

Permalink

"...faster. I think."

Permalink

“Faster? What do you mean?”

Permalink

"I think I can push it faster than it can go."

Permalink

 


“You mean literal pushing,” she snorts. “Okay, sure. But... not all the time, okay? I... I don’t want to be alone for too long. I’m scared.”

Permalink

"- of course. I can do it mostly at night, after you have fallen asleep?"

Permalink

“Sure. I’m sorry, I realize it’s smarter to just throw all our resources in getting to land - we should aim for my brother and our house, he was working on it, if we can - but I. Can’t. Just be here on this boat alone.”

Then, quite reasonably, she starts crying.

Oh oh oh no it is absolutely 100% hugs time damn him and his being cold and vampiric here they have blankets just for appropriate snuggles.

Permalink

Yvette clings to him and sobs.

"W-what are we even going to do, how does this even make any sense, how has no one figured this out before, James how many w-women did you...?" Sniffle. "Without eating, I mean."

"I don't - two. Other than you."
