You see boys, Vincenzo continued, finally addressing his prisoners. Soulmates in life means soulmates in death. I’d allow you to marry & spend eternity together. All would be peaceful, so long as you followed the rules. Yet you both are partners in another way, aren’t you? You’ve worked together, committing misdeeds & breaking laws in life. The skill set each of you bring with you could be quite useful to myself & the commander. Mr. Lancaster is good with his hands, building explosives & causing destruction merely for the thrill of it. Or should I say, Dr. Lancaster? And Mr. Durant, an expert at computers & security systems, hacking into them to asses the situation & work out the details. You are both so magnificent with your planning while proving you have little regard for others.
That’s not… Matheu started before Lord Fiore turned on his heel to face the younger vampire.
Decisions, decisions, he chuckled. Commander Reyes, any thoughts?
Korey shrugged, a wicked grin pulling at the corners of his full lips. What good is love? I think I can make them loyal & obedient soldiers, Lord. Once I’m done with them, they will make wonderful additions to the militia.
Vincenzo nodded, stepping closer to Korey. Then they are all yours. The king laid an assuring hand on the vampire’s strong shoulder. Leaning in, his voice was much lower. Keep an eye on them, commander. I believe that after your training, they would both be prime candidates as officers. But be mindful. They have a deep & unbreakable bond. While I don’t plan on it being broken, we need to be sure that they are just as loyal to us as they are to each other. Understood?
Yes, my lord.
