Daily Prompt: occasionally

From Protector of the Grey House:

He crossed his arms and smiled. “Last time you needed your strongest to stay and look after your new mate. Now, your mate can take care of herself. Who else do you take?”

“Anthony and Ben.”

“Should we call Owen and Kim back?”

He considered. The pair was on vacation. Occasionally, Vincent’s loyal vampires needed to get away and do as they saw fit. If there were too many rules chaining his vampires to his side, it chafed against their nature and made them ornery. When they asked for a vacation, Vincent granted it, as long as nothing was linked back to him. He was loath to call them back, as he understood how much the time away was needed. Vincent started tapping his fingers on the desk, getting his thoughts back to the situation at hand. He leaned forward in agitation. “This is really bad timing. Morgan’s close to finding Edwin but there is still too much dissension in the ranks.”

“But your sire needs you.”

“Yes.”

“And you will go to her.”

“Yes.”

“And you will help her.”

“Yes.”

“And you will sleep in her bed.”

“Yes.”

“And this bothers you because you’re with Natalia.”

“Yes.” He leaned back, then stood to pace, needing to release his anxiety.
