The new day
This world would categorize him as a vampire, the blood, the teeth, but the sun wasn't his enemy. Ryuu glanced over his shoulder, smirking at the irony. No, he guarded his human mistress from the sun. She would be tired, and he knew Yuki wouldn't want to start a new day in a fresh city feeling ill rested.
With preternatural ease, he slipped out of the bedroom without making a sound. The door clicked whisper quiet, the carpet barely shifting under his feet. The brightly airy living space greeted him, bright whites and calm creams reflected the sun from the open terrace sliding glass doors. Ryuu studied the gauzy curtains billowing in the soft breeze. The covers on the couch were tossed aside, so he assumed Shawn had been the one to open the doors. He wrapped his arms around himself despite the sun. Ryuu was far more used to the warmer weather of both his home and southern Japan. The breeze blew in, lingering notes of rain on the cool wind.
"How far is your home from here?" Ryuu asked, slinging his jacket over his shoulders as he leaned past the curtains and stepped out to the terrace.
Private residence would be a plus for secrecy as well as a better place to communicate with those they needed to communicate with. Ryuu was anxious to get somewhere where they could start their search.
