Tabitha-No-Last-Name, young vampiress, is hungry. Not for blood, she ate a deer that morning, but rather for more conventional fare. So, she has picked a house without a decent home security system, and is now rummaging around their fridge. Upon finding some raspberry jam, bread, and margarine, she sets about making herself a sandwich.
Tabby is very amused by Stiles’ reaction.
"Are we supposed to do that?"
"Not yet," he says, eyes still covered.
"When we're older!"
"The grown ups seem to like it!"
Wildcat observes the proceeds with great interest.
"Is it only for boys and girls to do together?"
She wonders if that explains why adults always act so weird about boys and girls playing together.
Claudia certainly doesn't seem to think it's weird. She's having a great time; there's not much room left in her head to notice the children watching.
"Boys and girls need to do it to make babies--which is super important--but anyone can do it with anyone."
"No one should make babies until we're older! Ewww!!!"
"Okay. So should you and I make babies, or me and the one who says 'ewww'?"
“Oh, I’d love to make babies with you. But we should make babies with lots of people.”
"We only have four of us here. Do we need to find more?"
"Oh there's tons of us out there."
He dares a kiss on the cheek.
Sure, a kiss on the cheek is fine. Wildcat turns it into more clinging. She likes cuddling up with vampires. She wants to cuddle up with the girl and the one who hides his eyes too, but she doesn't know how to say that.
Tabby takes the oppurtunity to nuzzle.
Okay sure, he will try to nuzzle without looking at his mom doing mating things with some guy.
And eventually, she will be done with mating things, and will want to make satisfied noises and curl up with this stranger- he doesn't feel like a stranger, now.
Not having someone there to feel close to is mildly disconcerting, but that's alright. She should be checking up on her kid, anyway.
Claudia tries to find Stiles-
He's closer than expected.
"-kids, you can come out now."
Wildcat joins in with the applauding. She thinks this is hilarious, because it upsets the hiding-his-eyes one.
"That's gross. And what about dad?"
These two factors weigh equally on his mind.
"Your dad is a thing of the past, honey."
Claudia puts a hand on her son's shoulder.
"We're vampires now. It's taking...some time...to adjust, but I think you realize just how much better it is, being this way. We can't bring him with us."
"That's not fair! We made you into a vampire."
