 Finally I decided to write a story that is a little different from my usual nonsense. Just that I’d like to know and foreign opinion. Usually the main character in my stories is a girl based on my imaginary ‘me’, i.e. What am I in my mind. I decided this time the protagonist is a boy (like in the manga). He will be very cool and likes girls and boys (this idea came to me while reading the stories, and I think that would be interesting). The problem is that I want to know more about how guys think. Somewhat I understand it, but I’m not a boy and I cannot recreate it. For this I would like if someone can decide to write a post about it. Yet for me this is the first time when my main character is not a girl.

Chapter 1

 

Being the youngest in the family is pretty nasty. I say this because I am the youngest in my clan. Oh yeah! I’d forgotten. I’m pureblood vampire. But I’ll talk about that later. People think that being a vampire is easy. That we can do whatever we want. To kill and drink blood and have fun. Yes, but it is not true. We have a lot rules. Especially us who are called “aristocrats”. We had to have an example of ordinary vampires. I don’t like such a responsibility. I don’t like to communicate with anyone (or more precisely a certain kind of people). But on its merits.

     We live in a world in which there is no need to hide. People still admire on my rice and fear. But now we don’t accept anything like… unusual. Sometimes they want to be photographed with us. We were such an attraction. There was only one thing that was trying to compete with us – werewolves. Those annoying, hairy savages. Most of them were a bunch of crude idiots who just wondering how to tease us. We had a contract or an alliance depends on perspective. And according this… contract, we should not attack each other. Vampires are better behaved and we tried to stay away from them. But they… They annoyed us at every opportunity. So I avoid going out alone. Let say that under certain conditions I can not tolerate them and may become one… incident. For this reason, my father asked my older twin brother Soren accompanied me everywhere. With him are very close. He was older than me a few minutes. They called us a “Double S” because of our names – Soren and Sylvie.  We both were born with silver hair and eyes… Oh yeah! Our eyes were interesting. Changed their color according to light (but most of the time were blue). Of course, we are done with light blue or red eyes, reveal our true nature. Here was our difference. My eyes became blue, and my brother – red.

     We were both 17 years old. And we walk to school. People take us well, but wolves we created a few problems. Soren always defended me and if I must be honest, he was a little jealous. This is normal. I’m his younger sister, and we are twins. But I knew one thing for sure: I can count on him. He would always protect me and I would protect him. As our parents and all adults in the clan, were quite serious most of the time, we had to be more careful. Sure, they organized and lavish banquets. We never attended… officially. I remember once my brother is curious insert in one of the halls. Then we were probably 12 or 13 years. Since I could not leave him alone, I followed him. There was an old shaft in which the slip. Soren sees something of that party. And I wanted to look, but he did not allow me. He said that it will be better. Our parents knew about it and they were quite angry with us. The shaft was sealed.

     I never understood what he had seen. Even now, after we were grown, he still refused to tell me. I respect his decision and do not raise the topic again. Whatever had happened in that room… would remain secret.

     The school year has begun and as always we had to get up early. Pureblood vampires and most of the ordinary vamps we can walk freely in daylight. This broken a lot of myths that we turn into dust. Well, yes. In ancient times it was so, but they say that with time came a mystical flavor that is mixed with the blood of vampires and werewolves, and so we changed. Now we are more advanced than our ancestors. Anyway.

     Soren was always more excited to go to a human school than I am. He was earlier than usual and woke me up. However I repeated that it is annoying, but he never heard me. Out mom was making breakfast (which was not blood) and send us to the car. We had many servants, but they're small gestures make her happy. Who are we to take it from her? And it lacked in her. We had two older brothers, but they don’t live with us. For that she bombarded us with care.

     We had a personal driver – Alfred. He was quite old, although it’s not obvious. I’m sure that he was about 500 years old. He was tall and muscular. He had short black hair and dark eyes. Always wore a uniform and more like a bodyguard. Alfred drove us to school. There the yard still was not very full, because it was earlier. The weather was gloomy and would rain, but Soren was in a good mood. He out of the car spread his arms and took a deep breath. I went after him. I shook my head over his good mood. I smiled to him. His good mood was generally contagious. At least so say his friends. They said to us that we are most mysterious vampires who have come across. I accept is as a compliment. And why not? We were unique.

 

Chapter 2

 

     Really it started to rain. This made everyone in the class a little distracted. Some were even asleep. I looked through the window how it rains. Not that I have anything against the teacher Mrs. Parker, but math is one of the subjects which I hated most. So does my best friend Liz love this boring subject. She loved to learn. She was very excited. At that she and Soren alike. Moreover, she was in love with my brother since we were five years ago. She thinks I do not know. She is too shy to tell me. And she is a human. Although she does not distinguish between her and me. I was her best friend, not a vampire that can do things with inhuman abilities. Well, she likes that.

     And as I said, just Liz closely followed the words of the teacher. Or almost careful. I noticed how out of her notebook were written “S + E” surrounded by hearts. (Liz is short for Elizabeth). This made me smile slightly. Even happier I was when the bell announced the end of mathematics. I got notebooks in the bag with both Liz came out in a crowded corridor. There we caught up with Avery Swan. He was third in the group. He was a werewolf and I think he was gay. And he thought so. But he was my best friend. So I did not care who he is. And I do not care for his sexual orientation.

     He and Liz was talking about something and I did not hear them. Then someone stopped us. I realized it when I heard the voice of Liz. She looked more angry than usual. It is no surprise to the cause of her anger was. His name is Jet and his band still fretted Avery and Liz.

-Let's see, who was here! Little bitch Avery. – Jet grinned.

-Why not get out? – Yelled Liz. – Go to chasing your tail, fool.

     Then Jet looked at me. I replied to his look. I did not like this guy. He was tedious and arrogant.

-And if this is not little vampire… Do you drink someone’s blood today, bloodsucker? – He loved to get stuck.

     I was about to answer him when my brother came. He stood between me and Jet. He looked serious.

-You got a problem? – Soren growled. – Leave my sister alone, if you do not want to crush you.

-You again? Maybe she can not to protect herself. Useless vampire. – Jet grinned.

     My brother was going to hit him, but I stopped him because I saw that in the hall is assigned deputy director. Not that I don’t want Soren to break the face of that dog, but I would not let my brother suffer. I got Soren in his hand and led him away through the crowd. Liz and Avery go out with us. I felt the tension in the body of my brother. He was furious. So I grabbed him to the back of the school where almost nobody went. There he was able to pour all his rage on a tree. He hit it while his hands were covered with blood and wounds. Then I stopped him. We were only two, because Liz and Avery went in a class. I grabbed his hands and began to clean the blood.

-Sorry, brother!

     He looked at me.

-Why be sorry? It’s not your fault, and on that idiot.

-You had to leave me alone to do it.

-I’m your brother. I will always protect you. I know you can do it yourself but I can not sit back and watch indifferently.

-But I don’t want to be hurt because of me. – I almost cried.

     It is unusual for a vampire to have such emotion. No… I mean to show emotions. But it was painful to watch how my brother suffers. So I hugged him hard. He kissed me on the forehead and hugged me too. Now we were both more relaxed.

 

Chapter 3

 

     Jet received only verbal notice by the Deputy Director. But he did not like that only he and his friends were rebuked. Although they were guilty. But this is not decreasing their anger. So after they left school they went to the stadium to run. They had their rules on hunting and even running in the woods. It was too dangerous because of the so-called ‘poachers’. There were still people who kill vampires and werewolves, and then for fun. Police chased them, but either found so sufficient evidence or failed to identify criminals.

      So they went to run the stadium. Only there they were allowed to walk alone. And there had guards to protect them. Jet was furious. His eyes burned with anger.

-It’s not fair! Why these bloodsuckers were not punished?

-Calm down, dude! They’ll pay for this. – Leo told him, and he was among his best friends.

     He looked nice… at least compared to Jet. He has short brown hair and warm brown eyes. Like most of their kind, he was with the well designed body. One should be recognized for the werewolves – they were athletic.

-Who and what will pay?

     The voice flew out from behind a corner near the central benches. From the shadows came out a boy. Hardly was older those 20 years. But surely he looks more than that. He was tall and muscular. He had long brown hair and golden eyes. His back, shoulders and his hands were painted with a large tattoo. It was not any particular shape, but it certainly gave the impression. He was wearing leather pants and black jerseys. His belt buckle was in the shape of the skull. His shoes… I mean his boots were almost to the knees and were also black. On his wrists wearing leather bracelets with studs. This kind of looked like a rocker, but I don’t think he was. But he was extremely sexy. All the girls were crazy about him, though he had a nasty character.

-Vince? – Jet exclaimed.

     Exactly. His name is Vincent, but everyone called him Vince. Alpha male in his pack. Furthermore, he was the older brother of Jet. Obviously filthy character is family train.

-Well? Who pissed you off this time? – Vince asked.

-That idiot Soren.

-Yeah… We spoke with his sister and he was pissed off.  – Max said.

-His sister, huh? What was her name?

-Sylvie. – Cassie said. – She does not talk to anyone except…

-Avery… - Jet growled. – This a traitor.

     Vince was not the meek… people. He loved to behave badly with Avery and tease my brother and his friends. He did not offend me… yet. But after what happened with me today became the topic of conversation, he thinks about it. Why not make Soren’s sister his victim? Well, he did not even suspect what this means. He would know the hard way.

 

Chapter 4

 

     Soren stood alone in his room and listened to music on his iPod.  But something else was engrossed his thoughts. Something he did not want to share with his own sister. Actually it was harder for him to think about it.

‘Damn! How do I protect her?’

     He stood alone in his room and was going to go crazy. He did not want wolves to deal with his sister. He could not be with me throughout the school. How would hide his feeling from me? I always knew when he feels bad. How would he tell her this? How would keep me save there?

     He sighed and finally threw iPod the other end of his bed. He could not concentrate. He could not to learn. Then the door knocked. The boy did not notice that his mother entered.

-What is it, my boy?

-Nothing, mom.

-Don’t lie to me. I know you.

-Today Jet again harassed Sylvie and her friends.

-And you worry about her. I know that you adore your sister , but you must leave her alone to solve her problems.

-But Mom…

     She sat beside him on the bed and stroked his hair.

-There once she would be without you.

-Never! – He insisted.

-She would be able to defend herself. If you do everything for her, she will become powerless. And we both know that this is painful for any vampire.

     Soren knew. He understands what his mother trying to say. This would be the hardest thing he ever did. Of course, he would not leave me completely, and would just give me more freedom. Or so promise on our mother.

 

@@@

 

     I tried to learn. Not received. I was sad and angry. I don’t understand. What is their problem to those wolves? Why harass us all the time? And Avery is a wolf too. That badass bullies the weak, just because they like to do it. Bastards. I was so angry that I jumped from my chair and threw my book in English to the wall. What is thinking? I’m not weak. I’m a vampire. Damn! My body was shaking with anger. The next moment in my room invaded Soren. He looked at me a little confused. Mom stood beside him.

-What happened, darling? – She asked me.

-Sylvie? Are you okay? – Soren sounded more worried by mom. But he always overdoes.

-Yeah, I’m fine. – I tried to sound convincing.

-What’s up, Sylvie? Your brother told me about what happened. That is why you are mad? – Mom asked.

-It’s not fair. These jerks deserve a good lesson.

-Don’t do shit, kids.

     Soren and I looked at each other. To do shit? Who? Are we? Of course we will not do anything. We are not hooligans. But we would not let them do what they want.

‘What do you say, bro?’

‘Let’s give them a lesson!’ – Soren smiled on without saying anything.

     Mom put her hand on her hips and looked at us. She knew that we were up to something. She easily reveals us even to talk about telepathy.

-Hey, you!  No shenanigans!

-Upon my word! – Both said in unison.

-Mom?

-Yes, dear!

-Where’s Dad? He still busy with the Elders?

-As always. After that he will examine how the company goes.

-He will meet with Matt and Kelan?  - My voice was filled with joy, and this led Soren makes wry grimace.

-Yes.

-And they will come? So are they so busy, that they do not come to see me and my brother?

-They will come soon to see you both. Don’t worry, Sylvie. Now I should go and check how it goes the dinner.

     Mom left the room, and Soren lay on my bed. He was silent. It seemed to me that he was angry about something. I was afraid to ask. I just lay down beside him and took his hand. We always did this when one of us was angry. I watched him.

-Sylvie?

-What?

-I promise that I will be with you always, but I will let you to solve your problems alone.

-Are you serious?

-Mom was right. My excessive love possesses you. I don’t want someday to hate me for this.

-This will never happen. You know that you always be my favorite brother.

-More than Matt and Kelan?

-Yep. However, we are twins.

-Only for that? – He seemed a little sad.

-Of course not. But I do not join this topic again. You become melodramatic.

     Soren smiled.

-You’re right. Sylvie?

-Yes.

-Someday I’ll tell you the truth.

-What truth? – I gently lifted and I looked at him serious.

-For what I saw that night at the party.

-Do you tell me?

-Sure. I don’t want to have secrets. If there is something that bothers you… tell me.

     I nodded in token of consent. With this call retired. Until it is time for dinner, my brother helped me with math homework. Soren was a real genius. I envied him a lot about it. Often teased him, but he was not mad at me.

 

@@@

 

     At night I slept restlessly. For some reason I had a bad feeling. As if something had happened. Not a family member and a friend of mine. I woke up and my brother looked at me frightened. He had felt my fear and had responded. Sometimes I think he stands and lurks in the darkness, waiting to be called. It is not that. We just had a strong psychological connection. Telepathy, perhaps? He tried to reassure me. I asked him to leave me alone. I loved it and knew that he was concerned about me, but I did not want to saddle him with everything. He asked to stay, but my strong view him to accept my decision. He left me alone.

     I got out of bed and went to the window. Outside it rained. But even awake, I could not get rid of bad feeling.

 

@@@

 

     That’s right. My hunch was correct. Avery came home from work (part-time working in a pizzeria as courier), when fell into an ambush. A group of punks, who were werewolves, attacked him. Pushed him, but only the beginning. Then they broke him… like a dog. They abandoned him lying in a puddle; the whole was covered in blood. He thought he would die. Only that would not happen. He gets help from the last person he expected.

-V-Vince?

     Yeah… Freaky and nasty wolf, which has plagued Avery since they were children. Now, however, helped him. Why?

-Why… you… helped… me?

-I don’t do it for you. Just will not allow intruders to attack my wolves. – He growled.

     Vince picked up the wounded wolf and takes him at his home (Avery’s home). Brief explanation of his parents and left. Once picked, immediately called his father, who was going to tell the Elders. However, Vince loved to harass the weakest of the pack, but hated the others doing it. Especially if it was an intruder.

 

Chapter 5

 

     On the way to school, Soren was unusually silent. He did not want to talk with me. I felt guilty about it. Does he not understand that I do not want to worry him? It’s nice to have older brothers, but sometimes it’s annoying. When I was little, my brothers Matt, Kelan and Soren still went after me and kept me safe. I could hide from them if it was not my twin brother. He always knew where I was. Dad always said that the older brothers must keep their younger sisters. This is true, but they do overdo it. Now, when I asked Soren to give me a little freedom, he thought that I no longer love him. But that was nonsense.

      Alfred drove us. I went ahead because I felt a little… angry. This prompted my brother to notice the hint. He caught me and grabbed my hand. I stopped and both looked at each other. One look was fully sufficient to stop with such disputes. Then Soren noticed something behind me.

-Hey, Avery! What happened to you? – He asked and I turned.

     When I saw him, all my body froze in place. Instinctively I put a hand on my lips. I separated from my brother and went to my best friends.  I touched the face of Avery and he moaned in pain, so I immediately stepped. I felt a little strange. I felt the blood or at least smell it, although it was gone… visible. Then I realized. That’s why I was restless all night.

-What happened? – I asked uncertainly.

-Someone attacked me. – The boy answered.

-You know who that was? Vampires? Or werewolves? – I hope that is not from my kind.

-They were werewolves. There were not local.

-How do you get out? – Soren intervened in the conversation.

-They left me. I felt bad.

-Then how…?

-Vince took me home.

     I don’t remember to have heard about him. Or at least I do not remember the name. But the reaction of my brother, I realized that he knows him.

-Who is he? – I asked.

-The elder brother of Jet. – Liz said.

-Is he?

-You know him? – My brother asked.

-Not personally. I’ve heard that the older brother of Jet is pretty… popular. I have not seen him.

-It’s better for you. – Avery said. – He is a true badass.

-But he helped you.

-Just because my strikers are not local, and they are without invitation in his territory.

     Someone called us and reminded us that we should enter in class. Hooray! We had literature. I love this subject, and Miss Palmer is cool. Yet I felt lousy for Avery. And my brother was worried about intruders. To immediately call to my dad and told him. And he told me that I should not go home alone. Not I ever did.  But now we had a problem.

      The literature class went well, but all of my classmates were a little nervous about what happened to Avery. All liked him because he was cool and funny. But the facts that hanging around a gang of werewolves do not improve things. The truth is that throughout the day at school were all nervous and restless. On top Soren called me that he had to go home earlier and I must wait Alfred. I bet he is called by the “Council”. They gathered as always had a problem. Fully understand the situation.

      As soon as classes ended, all of my classmates departed. In practice here was stayed only me, Liz and Avery. But they came to take them. Liz offered to drive me home, but I declined. I told her that they would come to take me. She told me to be very careful. I nodded and waved her hand while the car away. I stayed alone in the parking lot.  Would still have rain, and I wore not my umbrella. Furthermore, there was wind. It suggested me that the approaching danger. Here they are. Avery’s strikers.

      They were five. Definitely looked like criminals. They walked towards me. I quickly showed them who I was or exactly what I am. This led them to stop for a moment.

-What have we here? Vampire. – Said one of them.

-Who are you? What do you want? – Desperately I tried to hide my fear.

-Soon you will know… personal.

-I don’t think so! – The voice came from behind my back.

     There was a boy who resembled the attackers, but was not. He stood before me.

-Out of my territory. – Said the newcomer.

-So what? You protect this stupid bloodsucker?

-No. But you’re here without permission and have attacked a member of my pack.

     This was supposed to be Vince. Indeed, he seemed perfect, but his character was not a lie. Moreover, I felt humiliated.

-Hey, wait a minute! I’m still here. – They looked at me with fury.

-Shut up, you bloodsucker!

     This melted glass. This territory was not only the wolves. And no one to hold me likes that.

-Listen, dog!  Get out of here!

     My eyes now shone as destructive lightning. The energy dancing around me and I hid my sharp canines. My voice was a little different. Something mixed between human speech and animal growl.

-Don’t provoke me, geeks! – I said and I was really angry.

     They were ready to attack, but something interrupted us. The phone rang. It was the phone with him a fool who played the boss. He raised and obviously he did not like what he heard. A minute later he recalled his comrades. They disappeared as they were occurring. Remained in the parking lot just me and the wolf. Again I was normal and I fell to the ground. My legs were shaking. I breathe deeply to calm down.

-Look at you! And I thought you were absolutely useless. – He said.

-Get away!  - I tried to sound convincing.

     He handed me a hand stand.  I do not fumble. I stood up alone. I did not trust on this… I do not even know how to call him.

-My brother is right. You are ungrateful.

-I didn’t need from your help. – I said. - And I was alone to deal with them.

-Yeah! You cannot handle even one of them. And they had no intention to kill you. Rather, they would…

-Enough! I won’t to thank you.

     But this sudden burst of anger and energy played me a nasty trick. Pain pierced my whole body. I missed the bag and fell on my knees. I breathed hard. I felt that the boy came up to me.

-Now what? Are you afraid?

-Get… out. Damn… it hurt.

     Then Alfred came. He made the wolf to step back. The driver thought that he attacked me. Hardly could I tell him that he was wrong. I rose from the ground, although difficult. After this sudden pain, I thought now I’m fine. However, I stand up. But I was wrong. The face of the wolf was the last thing I saw before me losing consciousness.

                                                                                     

Chapter 6

                                                                                                           

     Before my eyes darkness reigned. But I heard voices. I heard alarmed voices of my parents and voices of my two older brothers, but mostly I heard the voice of Soren. He does not stop to repeat: ‘I should not leave her alone! I’m guilty.’ But he wasn’t. Nobody was guilty. It has been just one… incident. The vampire in me was awakened. What’s like the first ‘shift’ on werewolves. I know that Soren has a real vampire. He had gone through, almost imperceptibly. Well, he was stronger than me. Probably ‘awakening’ has passed unnoticed by him. I guess this is why he does not recognize what is happening to me. And the pain? It was not only because of the process. I was close to a wolf when it happened. Maybe my blood was adopted him as the enemy. I cannot say. While I still was not finished with this process. This was only the beginning.

     Daddy tried to calm everyone. Although still could not focus and saw nothing I though I could speak.

-Calm… down!

-Sylvie! Sylvie! – Soren took my hand.

-You okay, kid? – It was the voice of Kelan.

-Apart from that I do not see anything… yeah, I’m fine.

-What happened? Who did this, sis? – Matt asked.

-None. Just…

     I told them everything. For attackers. For Vince. Everything. And while I did, my eyes brighten up. I rose from bed and looked around the faces of the audience one by one. I smiled. This little surprised them. Then I remembered something.

-Dad! I remembered something.

-What, dear? – He came and sat on the bed.

-Well, they were preparing to attack us, when someone calls them. They walked, albeit unwillingly.

     My father thought for a moment. Then he looked at my brothers. All of them left the room… without me, of course. I heard Dad ordered Alfred to follow me like a shadow. I could not take it and get out of bed. I ran to the door and opened it with the intention to oppose, but… There was no one. However, I hear them. One of the servants went past me and I asked her where they are. She said: in the cabinet. She bowed and disappeared like a shadow in the dark corridor. I stayed silent. I returned to the room, close the door and leaning back on it. I really would become a real vampire. I got excited, but I was pretty scared. The cost to become a worthy member of the clan paid a lot of pain. Could I do it? Could I pay the price?

 

@@@

 

     Vince stood in the main hall with his family and members of the pack. Of course, he was reported what happened, and intentionally missed the part in which I received and Alfred attacks nearly killed him. The members of the pack were not charmed by the intervention of a vampire, because attackers werewolves, though from another pack. Avery was also here. He gathered the courage to express his views.

-It is logical that she intervened. They attacked her. Surely they knew that she is a vampire.

-This time I agree with him. – Jet intervened, and his speech surprised everyone. – They obviously do not attack randomly.

-Like our cause. – Join Max.

     Then the Elder Garland Faust has smoothed his black beard and went into a little reflection. ‘Maybe the boy is right. They want… war.’ Then just dissolved the council. Gave no explanation and said nothing.

     Jet and Vince went to a parked car on Vince. Then saw Avery, Vince gave the keys to his brother and told him to leave without him. The boy was surprised but he did not dare to argue with his brother. He was gone. Vince caught Avery and with a few words he convinces him to drive him. Were not actually words, but growl. Avery had no choice.

     They got into the car with my friend. As soon as they leave the area of ‘building for meetings’ Vince spoke.

-You are a friend of that vampire, right? So to speak.

-Yes! – The boy said uncertainly.

-What do you know about her?

-What? I… She is my friend. I do not want to

-Avery… - Vince growled. – I just want to talk to her.

-Why?

-Because of what happened today. Give me her phone number.

-She will kill me!

-If you do not do it, I will kill you.

     Avery was caught between hammer and anvil. But he feared more that his Alpha, rather than his vampire friend. So he dictated the number. Then leave him outside a bar. It was a place where ordinary people would not go. It was dangerous.

 

@@@

 

     I lay in the bed. I could not sleep. The last time I looked at my watch, it showed almost three o’clock in the morning. I sighed as I thought about what happened. Then, quite unexpectedly, my mobile phone rang. I took it from the nightstand beside the bed and looked at the display. Unknown number? Who could it be? Moreover, only two people outside the clan knew this number. No way. I replied.

-Hello? Who is this?

‘Would you close the phone if I tell you?’

-I will close if you do not tell me.

‘Vince. Remember me?’

     Damn! I closed before I knew it. But after a few seconds, the phone rang again.

-What do you want? Who gave you the number?

‘Cannot you guess? We need to talk about what happened earlier.’

-I have nothing to talk with you.

‘Why do you hate me? You do not even know me.’

-But I know your glory. Moreover you bother Avery.

‘So do you care about this… fool?’

-Don’t talk that about him.

‘It will stop only if you do what I wanted.’

       I was angry. Really angry. This badass blackmail me, but if this game will make him to leave Avery peace, I would make compromises.

-Damn you! Where and when?

     I heard him to laugh.

‘I will find you. Don’t worry.’

     He closed this time. If ever I could not sleep, the chances to do it now were more than zero. The problem was not only that this cretin will call. I had to be alone. And how to get out from Soren and Alfred? Think, Sylvie, think! I jumped out of bed and walked into the shower. Washed and changed my clothes. I do not stand in the room and so I decided to walk around the house. It was quite simply because there was nobody. Perhaps only Soren. He was sleeping and I heard it. I did not want to wake him, so I stepped from the door of his room. But it opened and a hand pulled me inside. It was dark, but I knew it was my brother. He hugged me.

-Why don’t you sleep, sis?

-I don’t want to sleep. I did not want to wake you up. Sorry.

-Made me afraid today. And now… It is still early, so came to sleep.

-Like when we were young?

-Yes.

     I lay down in his bed and he covered me with his blanket. I huddled in my brother.  Strange. Now I feel much more relaxed. I really fell asleep. I do not know how it happened. Or I felt safer with him. Soren and I were like two bodies and one soul. Not literally, of course.

 

@@@

 

     The alarm rang at half past six in the morning. I was scared.

-God! I must have fallen asleep.

-You were, sleepyhead. – My brother smiled.

-Soren… - I am contemplating whether to tell him the truth.

-What is it, Sylvie? Something bad had happened?

-Well, I’m not sure.

-Speak! You scare me.

-Vince calls me.

-What!?

-He wants to talk with me.

-No! I do not want this dog to approach you.

-Me too, but…

-Wait a minute! Don’t tell me that you want to see him?

-Of course not! But he said that if I talk with him only this time, he will not harass Avery. The deal sounded good.

-Sylvie! You know what they say about him.

-Yes, I know! This is just one call. I will not let him get close to me.

-Then I come will with you.  I will not leave you alone with him.

     I wanted to say something, but I could not. Lately, I too isolated him and this hurts us both. Furthermore, I did not know either where or when I will meet with the wolf. But other troubled me. Soren’s words. Am I sure that I want to meet that guy? I do not like him. Right? Damn! It is true that he is sexy and dangerous, but he was the biggest loser I know.

 

@@@

 

      All day at school I was on tenterhooks. Soren did not stop to watch me. Avery just apologized and Liz begged me to help her with literature homework. I was bored by it all. For this reason I used my imagination and I managed to get out from my bodyguards. The only place where I went without bothering me was the library. There really was no one. Only the librarian, but he slept in his office. I hid between the shelves. I sat on the ground and took the first book that I found. It was of poems.

      Before I knew it, I already had company. I do not look at him.

-How did you get here?

-Easy.

-I thought that this will remain my stash. Well? Speak! I’m listening.

-You’re direct. Incidentally, your brother and his friends as they look for you like crazy.

-Do not waste my time, Vince.

-What happened when those jerks go?

-The attack? What you care? – This time I looked at him.

     I think that he did not like my attitude because he looked pretty… fierce. I do not be afraid, and perhaps I should have. I am coughing and continued to pretend to read.

-Come on! We’ll talk about something or I can go? Soren will soon find me.

-He holds too protectable with you, huh?

-It’s annoying sometimes. You want to hear what happened? Okay. It’s like your first ‘shift’. Only that with us is different. Or more precisely, to me.

      Vince sat down opposite me and stared at my face, as if hi trying to read my mind. I was glad that he can’t. And why I was so… kindly to him?

-Why have you been different? Are all bloodsuckers are not the same?

-Are you the same with those who attack people around?

      He rose slightly, but his golden eyes gleamed a little spooky.

-No, right? So stop puts all vampires under one denominator.

      He calms down. But how long? I think cause I liked him. All would say it’s crazy, but for me it is just a game.

-For me it’s different because in my observation Soren not felt so much pain. But he was only surrounded by vampires, but this is also a factor. And I was…

-With me?

-Not my will. It that is all… goodbye.

      I left the book and stood up. I put my bag over my shoulder and almost walked away when the guy grabbed me and pushed me to the massive wooden shelves. He held my hands high above my head. That he uses only one hand. His eyes were inches from mine. He smiled.

-Let me go, you bastard! How dare you?

-Shh… You do not want to hear us, right? Or perhaps you want?

      I pull up in an attempt to escape. Complete waste of time. He really was much stronger. I was terribly angry and scared. I have no doubt that this badass felt those feelings and he has fun.

-Let me go! What are you doing?

-What I want? Let’s see…

      Then I heard the cries of my brother. This scatter Vince and I took advantage. Got out and run. I run until I felt his eyes on my back. I hate him. I hate this arrogant bastard. Not only have that, but my whole body (usually clothes) smelled of this dog. It certainly would make my brother crazy.

     I found Soren before he found my hiding. He and Alfred immediately the wolf smell on my clothes. For the first time my brother did not want to hug me. He not even comes close to me. That hurt me. Such a wound is deep.

-Soren? – My eyes filled with tears.

-Is he… touches you? – His voice trembled with anger.

     I know what he thought. What was that? I can not believe that he asks me this. I thought that he knows me much better.

      I was crying and run away from there. Liz and Avery could not stop me. Even Alfred failed. I should have clarified my mind. Before no one treat me in such a humiliating way. I did not know where to go. So I was traveling around the city.  It’s not enough these problems, but it also started to rain in torrents.  However, I did not stop to wander. I got wet, but at least my tears blend with the rain. When I looked was already dark.

     As if not reached it, and came and Jet and his pals.

-God, Sylvie! You look like a wet bat. – Jet laughed.

     I watched him angrily and I overlooked. But he didn’t stop. Grabbed my hand.

-Hey! You can not run this time.

     I pulled my hand.

-Do not be a family trait to harass me?

-What? – He was definitely an idiot.

-Tell to your filthy brother to stay away from me or he will regret.

-Vince? – His eyes widened.

     No attempt to recite it. Just went on the road. I walked quickly to leave the damn wolves. But where the hell am I going?

 

@@@

 

      Jet went home. He seemed more pensive than usual. This prompted his family to be surprised. The boy went to his brother’s room and knocked. He obtains permission and entered. He noticed that his older brother calmly watching TV. For a moment he looked it Jet, and then went back to his work.

-What do you want this time? – Vince asked.

-Did you really harassing the vampire… today?

-Why? Are you worried about her?

-So is it true?

-I would not say that it’s harassment. But why you ask me?

-I just saw her wandering around town. She not even wears an umbrella. She seemed… well, how to say… bad. As a beaten animal.

      This attracted the attention of the golden eyes wolf.

-Poorly?

-Well, that idiot Soren never leaves her alone. He is like her shadow, but now…

     Vince remembered the assault for the attack, which was witnessed. Generally he does not care what happens to vampires, but this time they would accuse him. The last thing he wanted was to accuse him that something had happened to the vampire. He did not want to help but he does not want to have unnecessary problems. So he pretended to be angry and go out. He himself knew what was going on.

     He climbs into his car (SUV) and drove off. Well, at least had a clue. He still remembers my scent. So the wolf in him would have found me. Went around the city and angry that I’m gone. It remained only one thing: parking the car and walked away.

 

@@@

 

      In my house chaos reigned. My father was furious. He did not stop shouting at Soren. And my twin brother was horrible. He could not forgive himself for what he was told. He wanted himself to go out and look for me, but this work was entrusted to Kelan and Matt, and a group of guards.

     Mom and Soren stood in my room.

-How could I think such a thing for her? I’m guilty, that she ran.

-No blame yourself, my boy. Your brothers will find her.

-You were not there, Mom. You do not see her eyes… her tears… If something happens to her… I… I will die. I swear I will die.

     Mom could not tell him anything. She very well knew that my brother is able to do what he promised. That her frightened.

 

@@@

 

      I sat on a bench in the darkest part of the ‘Stone Park’. I was crying and trembling because of the cold wind. Moreover, the rain had not stopped. I had no intention of going home. I did not want to see a glimpse of Soren indictment. Did he hate me? I hope not. For a moment I thought that I would faint. I nodded dropped to the bench when I am leaning on something. More precisely, someone. I know the smell of wet dog (not literally). Then he spoke.

-Vampires are not you sick?

-No! Just bad luck. And mine is just terrible. What the hell you doing here? Do not you reach? It’s your entire fault.

-And what did I do? We just talk.

-And that was enough. Now go.

-And if I don’t want?

     I tried to get up but my legs do not hold me. Most sucks is that I got help from the culprit for my affliction. Vince kept me… too close. I must admit that it was warm. I was going to get out of his clutches, but I had no strength. I was trembling and just stood there. Slowly I raised my head and looked at him.

-Why are you doing this? You hate me and no doubt about it. Then why are you here and why you help me?

-I don’t know. Maybe I do not want to be accused without reason. Anyway, I have enough problems.

     Before I say a word, he lifted me in his arms. This time I tried to escape, but he held me too tight. I do not think that it was necessary to do so. I told him. I told him that I can do it myself. He said nothing, but would not let me. He takes me to his car and put me in the place next to the driver. Even put my seat belt. I do not stop to wonder why he is doing it. Vince did not speak to me. That’s why I stopped to ask.

Chapter 1

 

     Where am I? I feel the earth beneath me in a firm and moist. The air carried the smell of the forest. Forest? How? Why am I in the woods? Why do I feel so dizzy? My eyes were opened. Yes, I lay on the ground. Barely see the sky. It was dark. Soon would be dark. I tried to stand. Slowly I am gripped in the earth, but when I tried to stand I was dizzy again and found myself in the dust. I touched my head and felt something wet and sticky. I looked at my hand. Blood. Blood? Oh yeah!  I remember. I was running and trip over a branch. I hit my head. Why I was running? I don’t know. I remember being in school. On the parking. Something frightened me and I ran. My house is on the other side of the park, at the beginning of the forest. I had to wait for my brother Hunter, but he was late. Thus I was there.

     Sticky darkness crept among the trees. It’s become cold and was going to rain. I didn’t know this place. We were new in town. I was scared and confused. I crept up to a large tree. Oak, maybe. It became even colder, and I was wearing jeans, shirt and thin jacket. I turned into a ball. I was tired and hungry. I could not cry. I had no strength. My eyes began to close. I fell asleep. The darkness that surrounds me crept into my mind.

     I relaxed and silent up there… to that tree. I made a cold autumn day than to slip into my body and my soul. I felt so helpless and alone… For a moment I felt something warm and somewhat soft. Something strange. Then… nothing. Only deep and impenetrable darkness. I thought: ‘Is this my end? Will I die?’ I prayed for someone to find me. I wanted someone to save me. But I could not believe someone cares. Here… Hunter is probably still with his girlfriend, Molly. My younger sister Megan was too… “good” to speak or go out with me. I think that she thought that I am loser. Well, yes! However, she is 15 years old teen. And my parents… My father, Dean Reed, works to late. I do not know what exactly he was doing. Perhaps there is a company that dealt with different things. I’m not interested. My mother, Sarah, was a reporter at a local newspaper.

     Everyone is so busy with your life that hardly will notice the lack of an outsider. I would not say that I am exactly that, but I’m not a very social person. And yet… I felt something… somebody… But I was so tired that I had not the strength to open my eyes. I was relaxed in this heat. Heat? In this cold day? Strange… very strange

 

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 2

 

     I woke up at home. In my bed. It was warm and soothing. I looked out the window and saw that it was still dark. Then I looked at the electronic clock on the nightstand. 4:17 am. Everyone was asleep. I got out of the bed and saw the clothes I had in the woods. I raised my shirt and pressed it to my face. It smells different. With a sharp but enticing smell. It was not mine. I still had headaches. I put clothes on the floor again. I left the room. I got in the kitchen because I was very hungry. In the fridge had a plate of food. It was obvious for me. I took it and stuck it in the microwave. I waited about 2 minutes. The bell rang. I took the plate and put it on the kitchen counter. There were lighted only a small lamp that illuminated a part of the countertop and kitchen. I pulled a chair and sat down. I started to eat.

     I do not hear the footsteps. For this I almost choked when my brother came. He poured a glass of orange juice and sat down opposite me. I was angry at him. All this happened due to his fault.

-Are you okay, sis? You frighten us.

-Yeah right!

-What do you mean, Drea?

-What? Let’s see… You had to collect me from the parking lot.

     In my eyes there was something… Anger? I don’t know. But I knew he loved me. He felt guilty and I see it. Always hold nice when screw up something.

-Look… I’m sorry. They slowed me down.

-Of course. No doubt. You do not care for me especially. So everything is more urgent than me. I understand you.

     I was not hungry anymore. I am throwing the remnants and washed the dish. I went to the stairs, but I stopped for a moment.

-Hunter?

-What is it, baby?

-How I got back home?

-One boy led you. Well, he was more like a man. He was found you in unconscious.

     I climb the stairs and went into my room. Again I looked at my clothes. So is his smell there? Interesting… I really wanted to meet the man who saved me. Who was he? Why was there? How did he know where to get me back? I had many questions… One of which is why my brother lied to me, that he do not know who the man was? I mean… the boy. My brother had a squealer. Well, he does not know that I know about it.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 3

 

     The alarm never rang. When my younger sister, Megan burst into my room to wake me up, I saw that it is almost noon. More precisely 11:45. I groaned and got out of the bed. She watched me. My answer to her eyes. She didn’t move from her post by the door. I entered in the small bathroom. I took a shower, washed my teeth and I felt better. I went back into the room, and Megan was still there. This time she was sitting on the bed.

-Well? What do you want? – I asked sharply.

     I know that this is not very nice of me speaking to my sister in that way, but she never had a similar concern. I have been just suspicious.

-Yesterday you worried us all. – She said with her melodious voice.

-Really? And ask me? It is not fun to lay in unconscious in the middle of the woods.

     She jumped out of bed visibly annoys by my words.

-I am here to see, but you keep nasty, Drea.

-Well, I’m not used in your care.

     I started to dress. Outside it looked hot, but I did not want to risk. Therefore put on a thin black blouse and jeans. My feet were bare. Indeed, for a moment I felt guilty about the way I talked to Megan. For this I apologized. She accepted my apology and both went down in the kitchen.

     Besides my family and there was someone else. Megan and I went with them. Mom looked at me; she rose from her chair and hugged me. She looked really worried. My brother also stood, but he do not daring to embrace me. Just saying:

-Are you still angry with me, baby?

-I don’t know. But I hope that you will not do it again.

-I promise. Honestly. – He smiled, feeling relieved.

-Well… I… I want to ask… How do I end up here? – I feel stupid for asking that question where, but I think it was logical to want to know.

     Nobody answers. Unknown man smiled and stood up. He proceeds to me. My heart almost stopped. He was so… unnatural beauty. There was something different in his broadcasting.

-I am guilty of this. – He extended his hand to me. – My name is Kahlan Stevens. I am a friend of your brother. Pleased to meet you when you’re awake.

     Slightly and insecure I grabbed his hand. Then I looked at my brother. Just as I expected… He is a bad liar. But if this man… Kahlan… returned me at home, this means that unusual flavor which was permeated in my clothes… was his. Interesting, huh? When he smiled at me, I really troubled. It seemed to me that he knows that I find him fascinating. Therefore I hurried to get out of there. I justified that I should go to the bookstore, because I need books and pencils. Nobody objected.

     I went in my room. I put on my socks and shoes and grabbed my purse, along with some money. I ran downstairs and came to the door when my dad stopped me. He told me that it is better not to go alone. He told me that Kahlan will go to town and can take me. I wanted to refuse. Almost I did it, but… The feeling was quite strong. I was worried. However, I got in his car.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Chapter 4

 

Drea POV’s

 

     Indeed, it was cold outside. But in the car was hot as hell. My heart was beating like crazy. I don’t know. I feel discomfort. Although I always feel uncomfortable in the company of the boys, especially if they are beautiful. For this I looked out the window and said nothing. This is the end of my try to escape. And yet… He saved me. For this…

-Well, I…

-Hmm?

     Definitely he pretended that he does not notice my embarrassment.

-Thanks for the help.

-No problem. But why were you there, baby? – His voice was so manly and masterful… a particularly attractive way.

-In principle I should not be in the woods, but…

-But?

 -My brother never came to pick me up, and there was something… I was scared and started to run. I tripped and… This is basically.

-I understand. Next time… just call me and I’ll come. – He smiled and I almost stopped breathing.

     Damn! I do not know why this man makes me feel that way. He makes me nervous and I did not understand why. But why he suggested me to take me home from school? Strange… Nobody was so kind to me. I mean nobody outside my family. Only this one. For some reason, he was nice to me.

     Suddenly Kahlan got serious and stopped the car. I thought I said or did something wrong. But quickly realized that it is not like that. In front of us happened something. There were a barricade and police cars. There was an ambulance. Kahlan took his seat belt and got out. Quickly I followed him. Very quietly, he told me to stand beside him. It was not necessary to repeat. We got closer to the center of the event. Someone was hurt. No… He was dead. The cops told us not to get closer. We do not say anything. I saw that my mother is there. She does not look at me, she looked at my… companion. He nodded. Like they said something just by sight. Then he grabbed my hand and gently led me back to the car. I tried to escape but he was quite strong. No sense to fight. But I definitely was angry.

     Once we reached the car, Kahlan let me go. I do not get in the car. I grabbed my bag and went in the opposite direction. I mean at home. I was trembling with anger. What is that, damn it? Why everyone treats me like that? It sucks.

-Wait! Drea, wait! – He screamed.

     I heard his footsteps behind me. He grabbed my arm and forced me to stop.

-What? Let me go! – I cried, but not particularly strong, because my throat had shrunk by anger.

-Come and get into the car. You went to the bookstore, right?

-It’s not true. This was just an excuse to get out.

-What?

-Let us be clear. You make me nervous. I am grateful to you for helping me, but for me you are a stranger. So stop commanded me. Find something else to do.

     I think that I caught him off guard. For this I was able to escape from his grip. I kept walking down the street when I was almost under the wheels of a motorcycle. The whistling heard the tires pretty hard. I was scared to death. I sat on the ground trembling. The driver was not injured. He was angry and came up to me, but when he looks at me… He calms down. I looked at him. He was tall with blond hair and blue eyes. He squatted beside me.

-Are you okay? I did not see you. You jump so… suddenly.

     I nodded.

-I’m fine. And you?

-No problem. I’m Devlin. You?

-Drea Reed. – I grabbed his arm when I pass it.

     He radiated intense heat. Handsome. Then Kahlan comes. He was not only worried, but somehow… the defensive.

-Drea…

     I looked at him. Then Devlin looked at him in the eyes. They look each other challenging and looked as if they studied each other. Presented to each other, then Kahlan helped me to stand up. He held me, because I still trembling because the little… incident. I rode in his car and he drove off towards the town. I think he was afraid. I noticed that his hands trembled with… anger. I did not ask what it is. Just stay quietly.


 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drea POV’s

 

     The car stopped at a bookstore. I got out and walked inside… alone. In fact, I don't look for anything specific. I just walk around between the shelves. From time to time I was looking through the window. Yeah… My guard was there… Continually from his post. He makes me feel stupid.

     The seller watching me. He was a man about 40 years, but his hair was already graying. I was not surprised by that he stared me. Always is like that when you are new. Although it is annoying and somewhat stupid.

     I am browsing through a book and remembered the incident. Not for me, and for this with the dead man. I was curious. But if I ask a friend of my brother, he is hardly going to tell me. My life is totally wrong. While I was back to the door, I heard the bell above the door rang. I did not turn, because I thought that it is Kahlan. Well, he was not. I heard a strange voice that spoke to the man behind the counter.

-Hi, Pierce! – Said the newcomer.

     Pierce is the name of the seller. A man who had entered was a cop. I remained in my place, pretending to read. The truth is that I was trying to hear the conversation.

-What’s happening, Harry? The police cars flying like crazy down the street.

-New dead body. It looks like an attack by wild animals, but…

-You don’t think so…

-Exactly. I have not seen an animal that can do similar damages. And the location… It was not in the woods but on the street. Strange, don’t you think?

     The seller does not respond. Simply submit something to the cop and he went out. Damn! Murder? Here? Well, this is something interesting. Instinctively I looked through the window. Outside Kahlan spoke with a woman. I have never seen her better, but I think that she is beautiful. She revolved around him. She coquet and smiling. It was annoying. I do not know why I am so annoyed by this. That’s why I got the brilliant idea to get out of there unnoticed. That’s why I asked the man behind the counter where the toilet is. He pointed out a side door. I nodded and crossed the distance between me and the door. I went inside. I must admit, there was cleaner that I expected. Luckily for me there was a window. I smiled.

 

Kahlan POV’s

 

     I lean on the side door of the car while listening to Jennifer’s bullshit. She was part of a pack… like me. We were many in this town, although people did not know. She was younger than me, but she was trying to impose her will. It was stupid on her side to think that she can command me. She has always revolved around me. I knew that she likes me, but the feelings were not shared.

     I do not stop to watch the window. I kept an eye on the girl. The reason was not only the request of her family. I found her helpless in the woods. She lay there among the leaves. I could smell her blood. Actually this was the reason which drew me there. My hunger was strong, but when I approached her… I couldn’t hurt her. And her smell was familiar to me… friendly, although slightly different. She looked so helpless. I saved her.

     Jennifer noticed that I do not hear her and she was angry. But then I noticed something. Or rather lack of it. I leaved Jennifer there and walked into the bookstore.

-Hi, Pierce! Where’s the girl?

-She is in the toilet.

     I sniff the air and realized that she was not there. Damn! She was escaped while I distracted by Jennifer. I ran outside and walked around the bookstore. As I expected… the window was open. I sniff the air again to smell her and I did, although the city is more difficult because of the exhaust gases from cars. I followed the smell to the beginning of the park. I realized that she was in the woods. But why? Why she was back there? Are not she afraid? I do not waste my time to thinking about possible caused, just went after her.

 

Drea POV’s

 

     This time I walked slowly, because I do not want to suffer again. The forest is quite calm, although I had a feeling that thousands of eyes watching me. However, I did not waver. Proceed slowly. I heard a pop and felt dry twigs on the ground. I felt the leaves. The scent of the woods filled my lungs. I felt a strange calm. I do not know how long I walked, but I was tired and sat down to rest under a tree. I leaned back in the massive trunk. The air was cold. It was already afternoon and soon probably would be dark.

     We were new in the town, but Megan and Hunter already had friends. Mom and Dad worked constantly and I was left alone. My only variation was in school, but now they let us, because there were any damage or power drains. Maybe both. For this I was free and bored. Well, I could walk through the forest, if do not come across any wild beast.

     I was standing there when a noise caught my attention. I rose and started looking. Maybe it was the wind? I sure hope so because last time when something frightened me so I found myself in quite a disadvantage. I was about to get up when I saw it. A huge wolf. His fur was gray-brown, and his eyes – like gold. He stood a few meters from me. Watching me. I was… shocked, scared and somewhat excited. I was wondering… Will he hurt me? Was he killed the man? I thought… ‘RUN!’ But my body did not move. Usually, if you run it gets worse. At least those working with the dogs.

      My heart was beating very fast. I could barely breathe. I froze in place when the animal began to close. I could not move. I closed my eyes and prayed to just leave. Only he did not. I felt his breath on my face. His wet nose touched my cheek. I felt his fur. It was hard and rough, but gentle and kind in their own way. This beast is not afraid of me. I opened my eyes. The wolf behaved more like a dog. Despite my fear, I felt a strong need to touch him. I could not refrain. I stroked it. He was not pulled. I felt safe. But how can I feel safe in the company of the wild beast?

Chapter 6

 

Drea POV’s

 

     I went home shortly before dawn to be completely impenetrable. All I smelled a wolf, I like it. It was sort of… primary. And now I had a friend who did not think that I am crazy. I had to bathe before dinner. The water affects me quite well. Of course, whole family discussed the incident. My mother was very excited and anxious. Dad, as is always listening to her carefully. Megan was scattered and send messages from her phone. My brother did the same. I just sat and listened to them. They do not mind me. And it was good for me. Well, at least until my brother said something that made everybody look at me.

-Drea?

-What?

-Kahlan call.

-Really? Why?

-He said that you ran away. And mentioned something about a motorcycle accident.

-Nothing serious, bro! – I refer to everyone there. – Honestly. Everything is fine.

-Motorcycle? – Megan seemed intrigued. – Maya told me that in the city has some very cool rider. With blond hair and…

-Blue eyes? –I finished her sentence.

-Have you seen him?

-Yeah. His name is Devlin. I had a problem with him, but he looks nice guy.

-Ok, ok! – Our brother interrupted us. – I want from you to apologize to Kahlan. He is my friend and he is worried about you.

     I don’t know why he so much wanted to apologize, but maybe there was some reason for it. For this reason I agreed to do it. Therefore I asked my brother to give me the phone number of his friend.

 

&

 

     I lie in my bed and keep my phone. Finally, I just dialed the number. Wait a few calls. I hesitate and I was ready to close when I heard his voice.

‘Hello?’

-Hey! It’s Drea.

‘Drea? Where were you been?’

     Although he asked this question, there was something strange in his voice. As if he knew something.

-In the woods. My brother urged to call you.

‘Don’t do it if you don’t want.’

-I… I am not accustomed to people are nice to me. And you’re strange.

‘What do you mean? How… strange?’

-Let’s talk another time. I’m tired. Today there were things that happened.

‘Really? I hope to tell me.’

-Okay. If you want. But why you want to be friend with me? Because Hunter?

‘No. You’re interesting. Now go to sleep. We’ll talk tomorrow.’

-Ok. Bye!

     Wait a minute! We have not a date, right? No, no… Just a friendly date. And I had not many friends. Actually none. If we do not count the wolf, of course.

 

Kahlan POV’s

 

     I found her. She stood alone in the middle of the woods. She was frightened when she saw me. But there was something else. I could hear her heart beating so fast that if it was bird would fly away. I began to converge. Slowly, so as not to scare her more. I approached. I couldn’t resist. I behaved as if I am petting. I hugged her. I touched her face and she hugged me. I felt good. Even don’t know why. Ever since I saw her for the first time I feel like that. And when I saw her on the street with… him. I felt my blood boil. I was afraid not to hurt her. Otherwise I would kill him.

     By the end of the day I was with her. She was so sweet and gentle with me. Or rather a wolf. And while I was human… Perhaps she had the right to be angry. She probably was confused by my behavior. Probably for this… her escape.

     When I got home… Her smell was on my body. I want to keep it. But I couldn’t. I took a shower. I made my dinner and I eat it. I was alone. I do not go with my friends from the pack. I had already spent the day out in the woods. I wondered what to do when the phone rang. It was the home of the Reed family. I thought it was Hunter. I do not want to answer, but I did it. I was surprised when I heard the voice of Drea. My heart beating so fast as when I run into the woods. I had to put considerable effort not to betray myself. She wanted to apologize. It was nice to hear her voice. Not only that. We even arranged a meeting.

     I don’t know why I am so excited. We do not even know well. And if she understand what I am, she really… freaked out or will hate me. Furthermore, she is not part of the pack. She is not even like us. But I cannot do anything. I am powerless against this haunting feeling. And this intruder… The thought that he was close to her… I am going mad. And the reason is not just that he wants my girl. He taught in my territory. This will not happen.

Chapter 7

 

Drea POV’s

 

      I was awakened by gunshots. My heart pounding in my chest. My head was pulsating. I sat terrified in the bed, when Megan came over to my room and cuddle with me. She was trembling just like me.

-What is this, damn? – I said.

     Hunter came to us. He was in his pajamas. Obviously, he was waking up soon like us.  He sat on the edge of the bed.

-Are you okay? – He asked. – These idiots started early.

-What? Why shoot? By whom?

-I don’t know. They said that would make poses. Because of the incident.

-They will kill someone? – Megan asked. – Are they the wolves?

     At the mention of wolves, my blood froze. I could not imagine how will killed my sweet wolf that I saw in the woods. This is a terrible thought.

-I don’t think that they are wolves.

-Really? – My brother asked.

-Yes. A veterinarian or specialist said that it was not the wolf’s job. Maybe jackals or something bigger, but not wolves. Although for me is like. – Maybe I sounded more enthusiastic that it’s necessary.

-And mom and dad?

-Gone. As usual… - He said wearily. – Well? Any plans for today?

-I will go with Maya and others. We can see the cool rider? – Megan said.

-How about you, Drea?

-Well,… I promised to go with your friend… Kahlan.

     Both looked at me puzzled. I away my eyes because their eyes troubled me. They were not accustomed to hear this from me. Well, I was not accustomed to say it. My brother looked at me with that look that says: ‘If you touch my sister I will kill you!’ And Megan – she is excited. Even muttered something like: ‘Finally you get normal!’ Such a fuss over a friendly meeting. Maybe was an error that I told them.

 

*

 

    Since I had not chosen the right time for so-called meeting, I had to wait for Kahlan to come. I was nervous. He makes me feel it. Excites me in some way. I stayed alone at lunch because Hunter and Megan came out as always. I worried that I was rude last day. But someone knock on the door. I went and opened. Kahlan stood in front me. I smiled and I asked him to come in. It seemed so unreal that I could hardly believe it happened.

     I followed him into the living room.

-Well? What’s so interesting happened?

-Well, I… It’s crazy… even for me. Will you sit? Something to drink?

-Don’t worry, baby.

     Then I saw something in his eyes. They… they… were not human’s eyes. I remember that I lost consciousness. Complete darkness. A silence that can make anyone crazy. I struggled, but if I were tied. Suddenly I heard something from somewhere. Hum. Some repeating: ‘You’re going to make it, Drea!’ And then I opened my eyes… And I was definitely not in my house.

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 8

 

     I don’t remember what happened. I rubbed my eyes and opened them. Kahlan stood constantly around me. He looked very worried. I wanted to ask him what was going on but I could not. My mouth was dry. I was thirsty. He handed me a glass of water. I drank it in one go. I felt much better. I looked around. I was in something like clinic. I was surprised by this.

 

-Where am I? Why am I here?

 -Calm down. You just fainted. – He said.

 

     I wonder why I did not believe him. He hides something from me. I would ask him, but then came in a man. He was skinny and wore glasses. Chapter 7

I struggled, but if I were tied. Suddenly I heard something from somewhere. Hum. Some repeating: ‘You’re going to make it, Drea!’ And then I opened my eyes… And I was definitely not in my house.

 

 He had gray hair and a straight nose. He was tall and wore a white coat and stethoscope. He had a nice smile. And yet… There was the  same mysterious aura like Kahlan. He smiled at me.

 

-Glad you’re feeling better. Kahlan was very scared. How do you feel, Drea Reed?

-Good. I guess I’m overtired. Recently, I witnessed a lot of things. Not to mention the posse, which are organized… I was awakened by gunfire.

 

     I saw that they were worried about that. I tried to get up but Kahlan’s hand stopped me. I looked at him and narrowed my eyes. I pushed his hand and stood up.

 

-Doctor? Can I go? Now I’m okay.

-Well… - He hesitated. – Sorry! I forgot to introduce myself. I’m Leon Daniels. Nice to meet you.

 

     He stretched his weak bony hand that had more power than it seems. I smiled at him. He seemed a nice guy. I was about to say something when someone enters. Because the clinic was not very large the visitor comes to us in the office. I was surprised when it turned out that boy… Devlin. He was surprised to see me, but he smiled.

 

-However, we meet in the strangest places. Drea,… right?

-Yeah, we are met.

-Are you all right? You look pale. – He asked.

-Yes. I need a break. How about you? You got in the news.

-Really? – He raised his eyebrows and a slight smile playing on his lips.

-Yeah. My sister and her friends think that you’re cool.

 

     He laughed. He has a nice and infectious smile. And I smiled too. But I don’t think that Kahlan like this situation. And the doctor hopping from foot to foot.

 

-What do you think, Drea? Am I cool?

-I don’t know. I’m not that shallow.

-Amazing escape response.

 

     He tried to get closer, but Kahlan stood near me. Like he said it was not safe for him to get close to me. This obsession with its proprietary annoyed me. I do not even know me well enough, and now he commanded me like we are very close.

 

-What brings you here? Are you okay? – I asked with genuine concern.

-Nothing special. Do the service of Mrs. Peterson. She said she needed aspirin.

-And you, as a good Samaritan came to get some for her

-Mock me? – He asked jokingly.

-How could I?

 

     And we both laughed. Maybe it would be good to have some friends here. But that does not appeal to Kahlan. His face was marked that it is not tolerated. Finally he just grabbed my hand and forced me out of there. The doctor had to shouted instructions after us. So I was already in the car. I was really embarrassed by his actions. How are you allowed to behave this way? I knew he was a friend of my brother, but it gave him no right to dispose of.

 

&

 

     We were silent throughout. At least until we reached the forest and there Kahlan did not stop the car. He got out of the car and walked away. His gait betrayed him. He was tense and angry. I did not want to stand in front of him now. And he expressly forbade me to get off the car. Not that I was going to hear it…

 

Kahlan POV’s

 

     I cannot! Am I lost my mind? What’s wrong with me? I could not stand this idiot. Let stand while he smiles to her and want to be close to her blatantly in front of me… I wanted to rip his head. Though Drea was good to have friends. Always so lonely, my heart breaks. But that does not change the fact, that this wolf invaded my territory and wants to charm my girl. Well, unofficially. She does not know… Damn!  

     I knew that I had no right to be jealous. We were not a couple. Even if we were not and just friends. I don’t know what our relationship is, but I could not even think that someone else can have her. Selfish, I know it. I can’t get over this feeling, no matter how hard I want it.

     Well, yes. I saw her when she arrived here. She was dark and lonely. Even her family ignores her. Well, maybe without Hunter. He cared about her. She had dark hair. Dark as night. And now she seemed different. Her hair was lighter and even her eyes were a lighter color. I remembered that sometimes she wears contact lenses. Not that she needs. I think Drea just wanted to not be herself. I understand how she feels. Maybe it was one of the things that attracted me in her.

     I had to get out of the damn car. I can’t breathe. I needed to stretch my legs. Actually I needed to run while stuck without power. To fight and kill… But I could not. I did not want her to see me like that. She would be terrified, but I did not want to lose her. Especially now, when at least I stand near her, without having to look at her from a distance.

     I told her to wait for me in the car. Of course, I knew she would not listen to me. And I was right. She got out and took a few tentative steps in my direction. Then she stopped. Hesitating. She was afraid. I sniffed her frustration. I felt her own fragrance that drives me crazy. She smelled of wild flowers and on a summer forest. I loved that smell. I had to make great efforts to control myself in her presence.

     She dared to approach. I could hear her heart beating. Thump… thump… thump…

 

Drea POV’s

 

     I moved. Kahlan was still standing with his back to me, but now his stand was more calm and relaxed. I do not understand. I guess there’s a reason that he don’t want to share. I know from experience how annoying was to ask you questions when you don’t want to speak.

 

-Are you all right? – I asked timidly, and trying not to get too.

-Yes.

-I know you told me to sit in the car, but… It’s made me nervous.

 

     He turned again, and I noticed a strange shadow that lay behind his eyes. Like is hiding someone other that himself. It was interesting. Unconsciously I looked into his eyes, trying to find the mysterious presence. I guess that troubled him a little.

 

-Is everything okay, Drea? You looked at me strangely.

-Sorry. I thought that… Forget it. It does not matter.

-You can tell me.

-No. You’ll think I’m crazy. Come on.

 

     Then we heard steps that led us both to listen carefully. From the bushes came a few men. They were kind of psychopaths.

 

-Not going anywhere! – Said one of them with a gloating smile.

 

    Kahlan stood in front of me, almost obscuring the whole picture. I caught a… growling. It came from him. His muscles tensed. Shudder. I do not even listen to what lines they exchanged. My heart was beating fast with fear. No doubt these men were going to hurt us.

 

-What’s wrong, wolf? Don’t let us play? Come on. Share this human with us. She seems… juicy.

 

     He said it seemed to discuss food and not human. Simmer not run.

 

-If you get close to her, I’ll kill you, you scum!

-Oh! – Laughed the other one. – Is that your… bitch? How nice. We would not be very rude to her. Just have some fun.

 

     I wanted to scream. Panting. It looks that they are making fun of me while they brought me to the edge of terror. Fucking bastards! I gripped in Kahlan’s shirt and pressed my forehead against his back. I did not want to watch them. I did not. And if my fear fueled the anger of man to me. Some strange energy emanating from his body. Magical energy. Strong and powerful.

 

-It’s over for you! – Kahlan growled.

 

     It was not a human voice. When I moved I saw that his eyes are now on the amber color. There was a look of a predator. He ordered me to get out of there. He pushed me gently. I backed and hid behind a tree, but did not escape. Whatever happens there, I needed to know. And the secret was spectacular. I heard that Kahlan mentioned something about the murders. Looks like it was not a single case. But the way he spoke… Definitely not that of a human. They hardly pay attention that I watch them. They were engrossed in what was about to happen.

     I could not believe to my eyes when for a moment at the people there stood beasts. Jackals. And against them… Oh my God! I could not go wrong. My wolf. No! Kahlan is… Impossible! Such things do not happen. And before I take a breath again… The battle had already begun.



 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=Chapter 9=

 

     I was terrified, but for a moment I could not gaze away from what is happening. The Jackals were breaking one after another by the wolf. Hurting each other. The air was filled with growling, whining, plaintive wail… But most felt the energy. I did not know what it is, but electrifying the air. As I watched, not even noticed how much I clung to the tree. My knuckles were white and my fingers were sore. The tears just streamed down my face. There were no sobs. They fell just one after another. I was afraid for myself and for Kahlan. No matter whether he is human or not. He’s trying to protect me. Take care of me in the woods. He made me company when I was alone.

     The tension too much for me. Before my eyes danced black dots. I began to feel dizzy and my knees softened. I fainted. I sound like a fool, but no sane person cannot handle this pressure.

      I’m not sure if I was in that condition minutes or hours. I only know that I was warm and cozy. This seemed odd, given that I was in the woods. I moaned and opened my eyes slowly. Oh! My head was resting on the Kahlan’s chest. He held me in his arms while sitting next to the tree where I was hiding. He was bleeding, but he did not care much. He held me carefully. He stroked my hair. There was something else. He shivered. Definitely was not cold, because he was so hot, it seems as though burned.

     I looked up to look at him.

 

-What is it? What happened?

-Nothing, little one. They are gone.

-You’re hurt! My God! – I tried to get away from him, but he would not let me.

-I’m okay! Do not worry about me. I… - He looked down.

 

     He was ashamed of something. I was not sure. But I remembered. The wolf!

 

-You are the wolf! I… I saw…

-Yeah… You saw me. I… I did not you to know… This is…

-Unusual? Incredible? Definitely. Tell me… How could you close to me as a wolf, but to tolerate my bad behavior as a human?

-I could not bear to stay away from you no matter how angry you are. Trust me… I don’t understand why.

 

     I laughed. He is right. I noticed that he behaves oddly to me without good reason. Well, it is not very easy to win me even though I already liked him. Of course, I cannot deny that a little frightened me his true self. He was a wolf. Although he is very nice to me, he was still a wild animal. If he feels in danger he will go to attack. I knew that.

     Slowly I began to stand. This surprised him, but I felt weird. I felt cool being away from him, but it was better. In the end, I do not know him well. He was a friend of my brother and so had to stay. For this I tried to look as serious.

-Can you just get me home? It’s cold, and soon will be dark. I do not want Hunter to be worried about me. You’ll be surprised how jealous brother he is.

-So you both are close?

-Well, yes. Although he does not carry the same blood.

 

     The words shocked him and he cannot manage to keep his expression.

 

-What do you mean? Why do not carry the same blood?

-Well, you have to ask him. But I’ll only say that for me he does not matter. I will always love him.

 

     Maybe I should not have to tell him. I’m not sure. I don’t know if my brother will let me angry that I mentioned that. Well, I’m a fool… This, of course, spoils my mood. I became sad. I waited for him to get up. Then I went to the car. Suddenly my enamored with him surprised him. His face showed that worried him. I got into the car and waited for him to get dressed in the clothes that he wore as a spare. I watched him in the rearview mirror and the view definitely was good. He was muscular and damn sexy. Kahlan knew because I saw he looked at me and smiling. I blushed from embarrassment.

     He got in his car and drove off.

 

 

Kahlan’s POV

 

     I felt weird when I held her in my arms. I felt… right. I felt good. I heard her calm breathing. That calmed me down after the battle. Of course, I took care of the bodies of the damned jackals. I knew I had to tell about it. These attacks began to frequent. People would start digging where they shouldn’t. For me it was not a problem that I was attacked. I’m not a moron who cannot cope with the number of such carrion. But they threatened her. It made me crazy. I could have killed many more. But now I was calmed down. Holding her in my arms, I felt better.

     Drea was awake. Initially she adopted my nature normally. Then she becomes cold. And when she said that Hunter was not her real brother… I don’t know why it bothered me. I felt like I have to defend my territory. I don’t know how I can stand if there have another man around her. While I thought that he is her brother was all right. But now I’ll think just how he looked at her during the day and night. How he hugged her, even brotherly. Damn! Where did this jealousy come from?

     She got into the car without a word. But I said nothing too. I left her there to warm while I take out the spare clothes that usually wear in the trunk of my car. Before I had not this habit, but when you wake up naked in the woods with blood on him and torn clothes… Things change. Not that this is a problem for my family. We are all wolves in one pack. The truth is that many residents of the city and its surroundings are like us. Maybe two quarters of the population. For now we guarded the secret well. There were only a few carefully selected people who we trust that secret. Well, yes! I screwed up. Drea saw me. But for some reason I knew she would not betray me.

     So… Where was I? Ah, yes… As I dress, I noticed that she was looking at me in the rearview mirror. What she saw… she liked it. I could not help but smile contentedly, and she saw me. She was embarrassed. I was very happy that she still be interested in me. Only if my friends hear me… I, who am always serious and does not go out with any woman my way…, I’m head over heels crushing this girl and frankly I do not mind. She hardly knows how beautiful and sexy. But for me she was just… perfect.

 

Drea’s POV

 

     When I got home I went immediately to my room. I took off my clothes and stepped into the shower. I left the water running down me and wash away the fear of the experience. But I could not stop thinking about Kahlan. The memories were stuck in my mind. I touch the places where he had touched me. No dirty thoughts, of course. Well, not much.

     I stopped the water and dried with my favorite red towel. I wrapped myself with it and walked out of the bathroom. I got dressed and went downstairs. It was time for dinner. I was surprised to see that my whole family is there. Even Megan. They embark on a live chat. Discussed the attacks. Incidentally I learned that my father deals with investigations on unusual cases. It becomes clear to me what it was about and I was worried. I said nothing.  Never showed it. Just listening to what information a media and investigators have. I heard nothing interesting because I already know what it is.

     I ate quickly. I was tired of too many events that took place. I tried to sleep, but it was difficult since my brother crept up to me to talk.

 

-You were with Kahlan, right?

-Yes.

-How did it go? He really likes you, I guess.

-I know that, Hunter. I… I did something.

-What did you do?

-Well, I told him that you and I are not…

-We are not blood brother and sister? Sooner or later he would understand.

-You know, brother? I think he’s jealous.

 

     He laughed. He kissed my forehead and left the room. And I… I was trapped in a blissful dream.
