So…this is my latest obsession. Yep. Hope y'all enjoy! I own nothing.

Vladimir Tod frowned as he stared at the ceiling of his room. He was a little depressed because things hadn't worked out with Meredith like he'd hoped. He had no idea where it went wrong. He was having the time of his life and the next thing he knew Meredith was walking away and he was in shock.

He sighed and got up. Nelly was at work, and he was frankly hungry. He walked downstairs and retrieved a bag of O Positive from the freezer. His fangs elongated and he bit into the bag and sucked it dry. He threw it in the biohazard bucket underneath the sink and, grabbing his jacket and putting it on, walked outside.

As he walked through Bathory streets, he wondered how Otis was faring. It's been a while since he and Vlad had talked. Otis was always busy traveling around the world. It's also been a while since Vlad received a reply from him, so he must be busy.

Henry has also been acting unusual. He's been flirting with less girls and he always seems jumpy when around Vlad. Vlad knew it wasn't because he was half-vampire. Henry's known that for years now and it's never bugged him before now. Vlad felt it was something else. He just wondered what.

And then there was the affair with finding out Joss was a Slayer and had tried to kill him all because of D'Ablo. That really stung. He really considered Joss a friend so that day really hurt. At least he's alive. But that in itself is bad at the same time.

As he neared Henry's house, he heard soft voices coming from the alley. He paused and neared, listening in on the conversation.

"We need to find out now." Vlad was startled when he realized that was Joss' voice.

"Give him time. He just had troubles with Meredith." That was Henry! What was going on? And why were they talking about him?

"We need to find out NOW," Joss said firmly.

Henry sighed. "Look. Give me a few days, and then I'll talk to Vlad and see what he says. He's been depressed and whatnot. Otis hasn't visited in a while, either, so I can't really ask him if he knows what Vlad's thinking."

"Fine." He heard footsteps leaving and a sigh as Henry exited the alley, only to see Vlad standing there.

"V-Vlad!" he said, "How long have you been there?!"

"I just arrived," Vlad lied, "Is something wrong?"

"N-no," Henry said, "Do you need anything?"

Vlad shook his head. "I was just wondering if you wanted to hang out, but if you're busy then-!"

"No!" Henry said, grabbing his sleeve, "let's hang out! I need something to do!"

Vlad looked at his friend weidly. "Okay. Let's go."

As he and his friend walked back to his house, Vlad wondered what Henry and Joss had been talking about.

And what it had to do with him.
