"Did you call the paper?"

'About what"

"About the ad"

"What ad?"

"To find us a roommate, you dumbass!"

"Hey finding a roommate was your idea, you call the paper."

"I haven't been able to make a phone call for the last two weeks because someone chewed through the phone cord"

"It was an accident! You stole my squeaky toy! You know what happens to me during a full moon – "

"I did not take your goddamn squeaky toy! You're obsessed with that thing. Besides, we are talking about how you forgot to put an ad in the paper, again."

"Like I said, your ad, your phone call"

"And how am I meant to call them, when the closest phone is down the street? It's the middle of the freaking day – it's not like I can just waltz over there without turning into a pile of ash!"

"Stop exaggerating. You won't turn into ash."

"So – I'll…I'll…I'll sunburn rather badly"

Dane snorted and turned back to his cereal. "You know Vlad, you have got to be the worst vampire ever. If you weren't so good at cooking I would so have staked your ass already."

His roommate sniffed theatrically. "And if I wasn't an avid supporter of the RSPCA, my friend, I would have shot you with a silver bullet."

They stared at each other, expressions deadpan, before bursting into laughter.

"Look" Dane began, "I'm sorry about the phone line - "

"Don't worry about it." Vlad sighed. "Let's just get the ad posted and call a repairman – It's no big deal"

"Thanks Vlad. Umm, what do you want put in the ad?"

"Oh" The pale man looked surprised "I hadn't really given in much thought – something along the lines of 'looking for a non-smoking housemate for two males, rent 250 a month." He grinned "Something simple, don't you think?"

Dane groaned. "Vlad, don't you think it's a good idea to remember that we aren't exactly normal? Don't you think we need a roommate who won't be bothered by the fact that I'm a werewolf and you're a vampire?"

"Well we can't put that in the ad Dane; people will think we're mad. Nope, We'll just have to pretend to be normal while we interview applicants. With any luck we'll find another Vamp or Were looking for a place to rent."

"I hope so. Because I don't think a human would accept my turning into a wolf every full moon and your sucking of blood as 'quirks'"

"Just call the paper"
