“What the—” Ricky punched a few keys and cursed.

Kalila came and peered over his shoulder. “What seems to be the trouble, human?”

Ricky rebooted the computer, sat back in his chair and folded his arms. “I swear this video is jinxed.” The login screen came up and he typed in his password. “Every time I try to upload it to your website, the computer locks.”

“Oh.” She pursed her lips in bored impatience while startup windows flashed across the screen. “Skip it. It’s not that important.”

“Are you kidding?” He spun his chair around and looked at her. “This is your best quality video yet. You know how hard it is to capture images of you guys.”

“Not my fault the lead singer is a vampire.”

Ricky turned back around and opened the web browser. “Of course it’s your fault. You hired him.”

“Well, what I mean is…what are you doing?”

“Trying again.”


“I’m just stupid that way.”

Kalila failed to pick up on the sarcasm in his voice. “I’ll say. But you know what?” She spun his chair back around so he was facing her. “I like you anyway. Human faults and all.”

“Thanks, but that doesn’t—”

She climbed into his lap, straddling him. “Doesn’t what?”

Her touch was electric and her lips on his sent fire through his body. He wrapped his arms around her as she ground her hips into his. The video could wait. “I guess it doesn’t matter all that much.”

Once your mind is set on a task, it has to be done...unless...

Alice Audrey :

Hey, it's a matter of priorities, you know.

The more I read of this, the more I am enjoying it. Nice work.
