James looked at Jesse, a confused look on his face. He knew he should explain. "652 years next week actually. But I was exciled last year. Refusing to fight. I was Omega anyway, just because i'm gay!" A low growl was emitted from his throat. He looked at Jesse and his arm. "An experiment?" He looked at Jesse who obviously wished to drop the subject. So he switched his gaze to Konrad. "Whats his story then?" He whispered, knowing with no doubt the vampire could probably hear him even if he was asleep.
