Dahlia's POV

Note to self: Be nice to the werewolf boy. He can cook.

"God, this is amazing, Hyde!" Ash grumbled with her mouth full.

"Oh, that's ladylike." snorted Lilly, who had a fry in her hand. I made an attempt for it,  but it didn't work. She moved her hand out of the way at lightning speed and slapped my hand. 

"Mine!" she growled.  I pouted. 

"Hyde, hurry up with my food!" I complained, resting my chin on my hand. An irritated... bark came from the kitchen. I looked over at Casey, who has been silent the entire time, which is very unusual for him.

I nudged him lightly. "You okay?" I mouthed. He nodded slightly then went right back to starting blankly at the table. I sighed. There was no getting through to him.

Hyde soon came out with my plate of food, which consisted of several tacos.

"I do not understand your fascination with this food." McKaylia rolled her eyes. I scoffed.

"What's not to understand? They're amazing!" I scrunched my nose at her in distaste, and grabbed my taco.

"You're so weird." Hyde commented, carrying his own plate of food. 

"My mom and dad used to make them for me all the time because they knew I loved them..." I said sadly. Casey looked up at me, his eyes unreadable.

"Is there... Any way to contact my parents, Casey?" I asked. He shook his head furiously.

"No, there isn't. We don't want them mixed up in all this." he said. I furrowed my brows together, trying to come up with an excuse to talk to them.

"What's one little call going to do? Besides, they're probably worried sick! Speaking of... How have they not found me yet? My dad is CHIEF!" I exclaimed. The three girls all of the sudden looked uncomfortable. Casey bit his lip.

"Being a rich vampire has it's perks..." he said uneasily, like he was walking on thin ice. Right now, I'm tempted to smash his face into that ice.

"What did you do?" I said through gritted teeth, squeezing the life out of my taco.

"We... Well, Casey paid a warlock a big wad of cash to hide the house from the human eye." Ash explained. 

"That still doesn't explain how they haven't been looking for me." I pointed out. Casey looked away.

"We also left a stick with magic to disguise as a dead body out near the Interstate. It had one of your shirts." he said quietly. 

"I... YOU WENT INTO MY HOUSE?!" I screamed at him, standing up. He looked at me in annoyance.

"Of course I did! How else do you think your stuff got here?! Not by a fairy!" Casey snorted. 

"Here we go again..." McKaylia said softly. Ash shushed her and looked like she was enjoying a movie. Lilly snorted.

"You two sound like an old married couple." Lilly rolled her eyes. We glared at her.

"I'd murder him if we were ever married." I growled.

"That makes two of us, princess." Casey said through gritted teeth. I turned to him again.

"I want to see my parents!" I whined. Casey stood up, staring at the counter. From the way his forehead was creased, I could tell he was about to explode.

"No. Stop being such a baby about it. It's no, and that's final." He said with a tone of finality. I pushed back my chair and sneered at him before stalking out of the room. That was when I heard the glass breaking.
