The wooden spoon made small clicking sounds against the bowl containing the batter. Otis had been working diligently on his cooking skills once again. He had decided to move away from meals, and focus on desserts. They seemed to be more fun, and easy to make. They also had a less likely chance of burning if he kept watch on the oven the entire time.

Otis’s gaze was glued to the television in his living room. He was standing near the entrance of the kitchen, mixing up eggs, milk, baking powder, and flour for the main batter on the kitchen counter. He had turned it to a cooking show that he had come to love, and was following the steps the chef was doing.
The chef glanced up at the audience from his cooking explaining more instructions. “Now, after your batter is mixed enough so it has a smooth texture.
Otis glanced down into his bowl, and lifted some out with a spoon. It looked smooth enough to him. He glanced back at the screen of the TV anxiously waiting for the next step. He was so excited to be doing this, even if it didn’t seem very vampirish, or ‘manly’. But he enjoyed it; it was fun. Besides, every bi man or woman had to have a little bit of the opposite sex in them. Or more so 'hobbies'. His was cooking. Plus he liked to look at his masterpieces when he was done. So far, the only thing that was a total success was last night’s pudding.
“Now, add your chocolate mix into the batter, and stir until the clumps have disappeared.”
Otis reached over for his chocolate mix in the box beside him. He only felt the coldness of the counter top though. He glanced over beside him, finding that it was no where in sight. He thought a moment, remembering he forgot to buy it. “Oh no…” He muttered.
“Make sure the texture of the batter is still smooth before you pour it into the pan.”
Otis looked back at the TV wincing, and held out his hand in a stop motion. “Oh no, no, no, wait, wait!” He called out at the TV as if to see the program would pause if he pleaded.
“Set the pan in the oven for approximately 35 minutes, at 150 degrees Celsius.”
Otis ran out of the kitchen, and into the living room in a flurry. He skidded to a hault in front of the TV, almost falling after slipping on the carpet a few times from hurrying. “Wait, I don’t have the chocolate MIX!” He cried out.
The chef had gone on and on about how to decorate the cake after it was finished baking. He slumped down onto the couch saddened that he didn’t get to finish the cake. He had all the icing and materials, just not the chocolate mix. He sighed, deciding to re-try making noodles again. He took off his apron, setting it over the back of the couch, and grabbed his house keys, and toque from the small table beside the front door. He went outside of his flat with a small grumble. He set his hands in his pant pockets walking towards the mini store across the streets. Otis headed down the sidewalks reminding himself to re-stock sometime in everything he could cook with.

The clock ticked loudly on the wall, his boots twitched up and down while he waited. The phone didn't ring. He hadn't suspected that the man would call him, they rarely did. A sigh rattled his body, and he stood, moving towards the door. His keys he grabbed, then twisted the door knob and exited the apartment. Turning to lock it, then moving down the hallway to the elevator, he was feeling somewhat let down. But he had things to get, and a few people to meet with. He opened the front doors to the street after leaving the elevator, and looked about at the rough edges of the city, another longing sigh he breathed.

Alex's boots clicked softly on the sidewalk, feet carrying him towards the store on the corner. One hand in the pocket of the rather clingy, stonewashed jeans he wore. The other was swinging at his side. All in all, he seemed rather relaxed, which wasn't like him. The petite man was known among his friends for being 'high maintenance' at times, he was quick to worry, and always tense. For the moment, he was at ease, and needed a few things from the store.

His disposition was not one befitting a vampire, but he gave little thought to the fact that he didn't quite fit the mold. Straightening the small leather jacket worn about his torso, which was open on the front to a tight white shirt. The free hand moved up a moment to run through the silky blonde tendrils spilling haphazardly on his scalp. The store wasn't far form his apartment, and he enjoyed the walk.

Soon after, Otis had come across the store he was looking for. He walked inside, and headed down the isles for some pudding mix, and chocolate ake mix. He might as wall buy those things now so he would be prepared in the near future and not get bummed out again.

Alex entered the store, almost cautiously, the bell attached above ringing faintly. He moved towards the aisle where the bread was, grabbing one loaf. Milk was next, he grabbed a carton, then pudding mix. He moved to the aisle and, not really paying attention, bumped into Otis, dropping his things and cursing softly, before beginning to apologize profusely.
"Oh shit, I'm sorry!"

Otis staggered backwards, dropping his pudding mix. He blinked and picked it up off the ground. "That's okay." He said quietly, giving a small smile of reasurrance before helping him pick up his things.

"Stupid stocking, stupid mortals, stupid boxes of cake mix," muttered a man stocking the shelves with various forms of cake mixes. Although, the term man was used lightly. Muttering about how everything was stupid, up to the point where the muttering became a personal rant, a vampire was stocking the shelves of this mini mart. Now why would a vampire be stocking shelves? Maybe because he had broken his roommates CD player by "accidentally" sticking it in the microwave oven? No, I want a new CD player, and you cant steal it, he said, imitating a girl with a very whiny voice to match. Ah, so the great Zander was reduced to stocking shelves in a mini mark to pay back the damage he had done. Well, great isnt really the word one could use for him; it was only his own ego that made him think he was great.

Brushing a piece of dark ebony hair out of his face, he stood up, taking the empty carton back into the back room to get more cake mix. It seem like the tall vampire had forgotten about the low door entrance, and ended up banging his head. Growl, and muttering various obesities out loud, he returned to his spot stocking more cake mix. Brushing dusk off the blue apron he wore as a uniform over the black jeans and tee shirt she normally wore, he pulled out a price sticker thing, as he often put it, and started to mark the price on each box before placing them on the shelves.

Of all the stupid jobs, why this one, muttered Zander, thinking about how Amara could treat him this way over his little mistake. So what if her CD player was ruined, it wasnt like he hadnt messed in her stuff before, although, she did get mad last time when he tried to experiment on her cat, and the time when he played around with the TV, with it ending up as blown up pieces. In fact, he seemed to get himself into trouble these days, or rather nights. He turned around to notice that two others were down the aisle he was on, and blinked a few times, watching them carefully.

"You know, if I had a penny for every time I pissed off D'Ambrosio just for fun, I would be rich."

Alex was blushing now, from embarassment, or whatever. He stooped down to pick up the bread, which had slid away some distance. Standing up, he bit one corner of his lower lip in a sign of awkwardness. He shuffled a little on his feet and said, "Heh... thanks." And moved as if to go towards the cash register

"No problem.." He said, turning aroudn to grab some cake mix, when he foudn himself almost bumping into Zander. He shifted back, and staggered again. "I'm sorry." He said softly, then blinked looking infront of them, and taking a box of cake mix. This was ironic. The man before had almost fallen. He had almost fallen. He hoped this store man wasn't goignt o fall too, or he;d feel awfully guilty.

"S'okay," Zander muttered, staring at the man before him. He blinked a few times, staring at this man, somewhat enjoying himself. "It happens." He went to place another box on the shelf, before he noticed that the box that Otis had in his hand wasn't marketed yet. "Uh, sir, person, boy," he started, proving that the vampire hadn't had much interaction with other, "That box isn't marked with a price." Bah, he might as well quit and get a job that required no talking.

Alex walked towards the cash register, occasionally castin furtive glances back at the two in the aisle, frowning a little. His stomach was in a bit of a knot at the moment, but he placed his things on the counter, smiling briefly at the checkout girl, who was smacking bubblegum rather loudly. She arched an eyebrow, looking at him a moment. He was rather handsome small, thin framed, flaxen hair an attractive mess. Eyes glitteres slightly in the dim light. Shaking her head, she checked his items and put them in a bag.
"Thank you." He said softly, handing her the amount of money needed.

Vampire. But he didn't say that out loud. Otis blinked looking down at the cake mix. "Oh." He stated still staring at it, before looking back up at Zander. He set it back down on the shelf, and moved over onto Zander's other side to take another box of cake mix, that had a price on it this time.

He gave Otis a small smile, somewhat taken in for an odd reason. Though he didn't know that this man was really a vampire like himself, he just asumed he was mortal. "So, you like, uh, cake mix?" he tried saying, making a small attempt at small talk. He soon found himself done with the stocking.

Alex walked towards the door, but tripped again, cursing loudly this time and saying, "Damnit, Must be the clumsiest vampire ever..." and chuckled, gathering up his items for thesecond time and exiting, but taking a seat on a bench just outside.

Otis hesitated a moment to think this over. "I like to make cake with it." He said, smiling. "I like to cook." He nodded his head, then paused, looking past the isles to where Alex had just tripped. He had faintly heard him speaking and what he said caught his attention. "Did he just say he was a vampire...?" He mumbled quietly to himself with raised eyebrows.

Zander tilted his head to the side, hearing the word vampire twice mow. Ah, so there are others here, he thought, his thoughts racing. Heh, he could have some fun if his work just ended sooner. The CD player could wait, his fun was more important. "I would think so sir," he answered, formulating a plan in his head.

Alex sat where he was, gazing about at the stark, almost barren city. Trees were almost completely absented, but he sait there, bag at his side, and breathed the polluted air. His city, his home, it was good enough for im. So long as there were plenty of mortals when he had a taste for blood.

Otis stood quiet for a moment or two nodding his head. "Oh. Alright." He didn;t carry on then. He didn;t seem effected by what he heard. Any mortal would have been scared but he just let it slide. Until the thought crossed his mind. If he wanted to pretend to be mortal, he would have to act mortally scared. He blinked then put on a fake frightened face.

"Nice act by the way," Zander muttered, then grabbing his empty case or carton, he left to go put it in the back room, as well as take off his so-called uniform. He was very, very happy to get out of the stupid thing. He had ssened the delayed reaction in Otis, and now he realized that there was two vampires, one that had left, in the store. He then walked out, finally glad that he was done with work and made his way over to Otis. "So, I'm Zander by the way," he said, introducing himself to be polite.

Alex tapped his pocket, the cellphone therien still quiet. He had no plce to go at the moment. They would be coming to his house soon, so he couldn't go back. He sighed softly. "Here's as good a place as any I suppose." He leaned back in the seat and stared at the steely sky.

Otis muttered something under his breath. He sighed, nodding. "I'm Otis. I thought it worked..." He said refering to his act. "By your aura I guess your not human either huh?" He asked with a slight tilt of his head.

"Good boy, uh vampire," Zander replied, patting Otis's head for some odd reason. He was like that someimes, doing random things once in a while, or more then a while. "And I wouldn't want the nice lady at the cash register to kzow that, or then we'd be in trouble."

He laid down on the bench, wiping it off first though. His bag he disregarded for the moment, it was nestled in between his legs and the back of the bench. He would have posed an easy target, but he didn't really care. He certainly couldn't go home.

He wrinkled his nnose up, making his normally sarcastic face seem almost cute and child like, while following this other vampire. "I would suppose, but then I could always expose you too," he said, keeping his voice low enog so only Otis could heard his words.

Otis cringed, when his bag was handed to him. He looked back at Zander eyes slightly narrowed. "You wouldn't..." He mumbled looking him over with glazed eyes. He tried to put his best angry face on, but he wasn't really angry.

Alex's ears perked up a bit. He stood and, as though sensing, walked back into the store. it wasn't really a definite sense, just an innate feeling. He saw Otis cringing, fearing the worst.

Otis stared at Zander a minute before his face fell into a grin. He flashed fangs at him. before he turned, and headed out of the door. He paused seeing Alex infront of him blocking the door. He raised his eyebrows. "Forget something?"

"It's okay." Otis replied, and looked back at Zander a final time before leaving completely. He stopped outside the store, looking across the streets, and heaved a heavy sigh.
