He smiled a bit when she complimented his place. “Yeah, i was never really a fan of staying with the pack. Now that i got kicked out, the fact that i had my own place actually came in handy!” Blaise had never been in a bad place when it came to money. Both of his grandparents had died leaving their money to his parents and when his parents died the money became his, so naturally he had enough to last him a while. Though he should probably begin thinking about getting a job or something soon seeing how he had been traveling around from place to place for 8 years without any income.
Listening to her speak, Blaise noticed something he had never noticed before; Jayden was a lot like Sara. Not quite as devious and sadistic as Sara but they both spoke of killing as if it werent taking the lives of innocent people. “You could do to learn some humility.” he said barely even hearing the oven go off. He got up and slipped on a mitt before pulling the pie out of the oven and setting it on the counter. “It’s apple, do you like apple?” he asked, not facing her. He sliced two pieces and put them each in the bowl without paying attention to her answer. If she didn’t like it she didn’t need to be here. “Ice cream?” Once again he didn’t wait for an answer before scooping some ice cream into the bowl on top of the pie.
He turned around holding both bowls and brought them to the living room, handing one to Jayden before sitting on the couch beside her. Turning a bit to face her he tried changing the subject so they could maybe have a more civil conversation. He figured if he was going to get any information from her he should probably treat her kindly first. “So you have started going to school at the high school?” He smiled and took a bite of the pie. It was still good, the crust was a little stale but other than that he was proud of his baking skills. “How is that? Made any new friends?”
With his comment being left in the air, Jayden watched him as he moved to the oven. He spoke out every so often, but she wouldn’t reply. She knew he didn’t much care what she thought, nor did he care if she liked anything or not. So there she sat, quiet and waiting for him to make his way back over. The blonde knew, by his reactions, her comment on the sprees had got him a little worked. That was the plan, to get some sort of rise out of him and it had worked. Once he had come back to her area, she lightly took the bowl he was offering to her. Taking a small bite from the ice cream on top, a satisfied smile formed on her facial features. Food was her weakness, well, not literally but in a way.
Hearing his newest question, she nodded in agreement. “It’s High School, same old drama and same old annoying girls fawning over some cute guy. If it wasn’t bad enough when I was sixteen, it’s even worse now.” Lightly rolling her eyes at the thought of the squealing girls and passing of notes about some boy, she took a bite out of her pie. Once the savory flavor of apple hit her tongue, her taste buds went wild. This was some good pie, better than anything they would cook at the house.
“This is delicious, by the way. But, back to your last question, I’ve met one person who is interesting. Scott…..Scott McCall.” Letting his name stay out in the open, she raised her eyebrows up quickly, taking another bite from her pie. After a few seconds, she spoke again. “He wanted to show me around school, I think I’ll let him. Oh, and is there any one I should stay away from? I know you know more people around here than I do currently, so it’d be nice to know.” Setting the bowl on her lap, she leaned slightly against the couch. Wondering what teenagers he knew about and if she mentioned the girl’s name she was looking for.
Sucking on his finger, Blaise walked to the door and opened it. “Hey!” he said, taking his finger out of his mouth and looking down at it. “I umm…Burnt my finger trying to heat up the pie. Turns out microwaves and pie tins dont really agree with each other, who’d have known?” He stepped back, letting Jayden into his apartment. “So uh, the pie is going to take a few minutes to heat up so you can make yourself comfortable on the couch or a chair or something?” He gave her a small, slightly awkward smile.
Blaise was trying to be hospitable but he and Jayden had never even had a conversation so he really didn’t know what to say. He knew a little about her and they had been around each other a few times because they were both in the Alpha pack and sometimes the entire pack would go on a killing spree, but he didnt know much. Yet, it felt like asking her to tell him about herself would be inappropriate because he technically should know her. He walked into the kitchen, which was open to the living room and sat himself on the counter so when the pie was ready he could just reach into the oven and get it out, this time he would remember to use an oven mitt.
“How are things in the Alpha pack?” he asked, knowing he probably wouldn’t get a straight forward answer, but it was still worth a try. “I mean there haven’t been anymore bodies found, does that mean you guys stopped killing so often? Or have you just gotten better at disposing of your dead?” The question came out a little snarky but he didn’t really care, he had always been disgusted with the killings, and now he felt he was allowed to voice his displeasure.
Her puzzled look faded away once he gave her the explanation. A small laugh came from her once he mentioned the microwave and the tin. She knew that wasn’t a good mix, almost everyone knew but it just slipped his mind. “Ahh, so that’s why I heard you exclaim ‘Ouch’. Interesting.” Making her way inside of his apartment, she let her green orbs scan the surroundings. It was a pretty nice place and she could see that he cleaned before she got here. Hearing his statement, she turned to face him, seeing the awkward smile plastered on his face. “That’s fine, good things come to those who wait. Well, at least that’s how I think it goes.” Sending a small smile his way, she began to walk towards the couch. Scanning the room once more, she sat down and crossed her left leg over her right, lightly bobbing her foot up and down as she sat.
“You have a nice place here, much nicer than the home that we all are supposed to share.” Gathering her hands together, she set them on her left knee. Jayden and the rest of the pack were sharing a home, which was cramped to say the least. She almost always had to worry that she could be walked in on while in the shower. And when it did happen, she was almost certain it was on purpose. But that’s what living with a bunch of wolves was like, you learned to deal with it. Letting a few things run in her head, she realized, Blaise hadn’t been to the last few killing sprees. It was obvious he never really liked them, but they did it as a pack. Your pack is your family and the sprees were bonding time.
Hearing his question, she lightly shrugged her shoulders. “They’re the usual.” Short and somewhat sweet, just like normal. He hadn’t been around much so it was obvious he’d ask, but when he continued on about the sprees, her facial features took the form of a devilish grin. “It could be either or. If you were there the last few times, you would know. But, for you, let’s just say we make sure their screams are no longer heard and their remains are no longer found. We don’t want too much attention towards us, now do we?” Letting her tongue run on her bottom lip, she darted her eyes toward the oven. “Ding, ding, I think the pie is done.” Letting her green orbs slowly scan back to him, she titled her head to the left some. She knew the comment would irk him slightly, but she didn’t really care.
Blaise had no idea why he constantly found himself inviting Alphas over to his house, but to be honest last night he had kept himself up wondering what had happened and if he was going to be hated by the only friends he really had, and right now he didn’t really want to be alone. He took down Isaac’s decorations and popped the balloons, which seemed to give him a small amount of joy for some reason, and threw it all away. As he finished cleaning his apartment (for the third day in a row) he thought about Isaac and Camden and wondered to himself what had happened last night. However it was none of his business so he pushed the thoughts aside, choosing to think about this evening instead.
Blaise hadn’t seen Jayden in a while, she had been late to arrive in Beacon Hills so he probably hadn’t seen her in around a month or two, but then they never really spoke much anyway. He knew she wasnt a born killer like Sara and Zain but he also knew she did have it in her to kill and that she had something driving her. she was looking for something, or possibly someone, and though Blaise was curious he never felt it was his business to ask her about it.
Without thinking, Blaise grabbed the entire pie tin and shoved it into the microwave, pressing start. To his utter horror the entire microwave began to spark and pop and he lunged for the door opening it and pulling the tin out as fast as he could, burning his hand in the process. “Ouch! Crap!” he screamed, dropping the tin and had it not been for his werewolf reflexes the pie would have hit the floor and been ruined. Learning from his mistakes, Blaise turned the oven onto warm and put the pie in. He was extremely grateful that nobody had been around to see him make a fool of himself, he seemed to be doing that a lot lately. He then moved to the couch and pulled out his phone, playing on it to pass the time until Jayden arrived.
As Jayden began to type in the address to Blaise’s house into the GPS in her car, a few things ran through her head. She had never really met Blaise, maybe once or twice here and there. But, she never had a full on conversation with him. Until, of course, earlier in the day when she started talking to him about pie. Pie and ice cream, mmm. Having arriving in Beacon Hills only a month or so ago, she had actually only talked to one alpha out of the rest of her pack. That was Camden, and to everyone else around here, that was her older brother. Hell, he acted like one, being a pain in the butt whenever he wanted.
Once the coordinates were set, Jayden backed out of the driveway, into the street and began to make her way to her destination. Blaise had seemed skeptic to let her come over, bad experience with Alphas she guessed. Jayden wasn’t like everyone else, she was just a tad bit nicer. Well, when you didn’t piss her off, then, all hell would break loose. Continuing to drive for a a few more minutes, she found his house and made her way into the driveway. Shutting her car off, her hearing picked up on the exclamations of Blaise. A puzzled look began to form as she stepped out of her car, wondering what he could be saying ouch to.
The look continued to stay on her face as she made her way to the front door. Lifting her right hand, she lightly began to knock, stopping after the third. Letting her hand fall back to her side, she waited to hear his footsteps reach the door and for him to open the door. She could basically taste the pie now and that was almost making her mouth water.
Not under a read more because I’m mobile. I’ll reply to everything when I get home from volleyball later.
I’ll tell you what. I need to get rid of this pie and ice cream or i will eat it all alone, so if you really want it come over. But the first time i feel like you are playing games, you are out of here.
Okay, okay! Sheesh, someone’s touchy about Alphas. Shoot me the address and I’ll be over shortly. Have the food ready!
Umm… The pie is like a day old, does that make a difference?
And, um, no offense but i’m not sure i want another Alpha in my house. Every time i do that (save once) shit tends to hit the fan.
Pie is Pie! A day old is still good enough to eat, no doubt. I can understand, but, then again, I’m not like the other alphas. I won’t bite you…unless it’s needed.
I’m not hungry. Anyone interested? I have ice cream too!
I could definitely go for some pie, and ice cream along with it? That will probably make my night so much better.
