“I doubt she would...” Clara said. “However... I would be curious to try human again. Just a taste though, not enough to kill.”

Thomas' expression soured as he realized just how long they would be trapped in the stranger's home. He sighed and looked towards his siblings; surely everything would be okay. His uneasiness about Peggy, her home, and the staff was probably nothing. "Well, I am certainly glad we found your home. Thank you for letting us stay," he said. Had they not found shelter, they would have continued to wander in the cold.

"I don't mind the company at all and don't let  any of the staff alarm you. You are under my care. They are under my pay,"  Peggy told them and winked. She then dipped her roll into the broth and ate it. She then looked to Thomas and bowed her head, "You're most welcome. I'm glad you arrived safely and are here safe."

"That's enough, of that." Ralph snapped. "They're her guests, and will be treated as such." He glared at Nico. "And yes as her butler, I do have the authority to talk to you this way."

Her assurances regarding the staff did little to diminish Thomas' concerns, but he said no more on the matter. Instead, he ate the meal in silence, feeling quite satisfied when he was finished.

Nico laughed in his face. "Stop trying to act intimidating. We both know you're a pathetic excuse for a vampire." Honestly, waving his so-called authority around like they weren't all on equal terms under Miss Peggy. He kept walking alongside Clara, a spring in his step as the promise of blood raised his mood.

"There's no need to be like that," Clara scolded. "That goes for both of you. Miss Peggy brought us all in, and we're here together. We should be getting along and enjoying each other's company, not snarking at one another."
