The night wind angrily brushes my skin and the snowflakes that it brought along, sticks to my midnight black hair like bright stars twinkling in the darkest night. My arms are wrapped around me in a desperate attempt to keep my body warm in this cold night. The constant throbbing of pain continues on the left side of my body. I had to drag my body through the snow due to the injuries that I sustained.
The fact that I am drenched wet isn’t helping me at all and the probability of me suffering from pneumonia is constantly rising every passing minute. Along with angry hushes of the wind and the crushing sound of the snow beneath my feet, the chattering of my teeth echoes in the night.
Goosebumps the size of small thrones adorn my skin which is turning paler every second. My heart threatens to stop beating in my chest and my lungs deny to fill themselves with as much air that I need. I’ve never felt something like this.
Tiredness is taking
NEFRETmeaning:Stunning, beautiful.~-HER-Suddenly, I am being tugged back by my jacket and turned around roughly. I tug my jacket back from his hold before growling at him. He growls at me and black flames ooze off his body. That’s when I come to my senses and realize that I just growled at a god.Well done, Nefret.“Who’re you talking to Nefret?” Mom asks and I could literally feel my grave being dug deeper than six feet.With mom constantly rapping on the door and his presence in my room, I seemed to have lost my ability to conjure any thoughts.I look at Arles. Black flames are oozing off his body and there’s this guttural air to his presence that makes my bones shiver. His head turns towards the door before he lifts his hand and point it towards it. Black fire emits from his hand and hits the door making mom go silent instantly.My eyes grow bigger than saucers and my
- HER-How am I going to do it?This question occupied most of my thoughts as I walked home back through the eerie and dark forest. My mind has been trying to come up with ways to catch that deer.Faster than an arrow. Sacred to Artemis.I cannot kill it or I’ll have to face Artemis. I am already on the bad side of one god, I don’t want to cross another and make this harder for me.My nose wrinkled at the sight of the building I call home. With a deep sigh, I get in. I am greeted with Phoebe and Grace, both lingering in the living room couch, watching tv.“Where were you at?” Phoebe asks as soon as she sees me enter the room. Grace’s attention is bought to me as well.“Friend’s house.” I mutter under my breath as I stalk towards the stairs to go to my room.“But you don’t have any friend!” Grace exclaims behind me and I ignore her as I start to climb the stairs. My mind is set on the second task. I have to complete it,
- HER-“I want your Golden Hind.”Silence follows my words while she continues to look at me passively. She raises an eyebrow at me before scanning me with her piercing eyes.“You want me to give you my Golden Hind?” She asks tilting her head.“I want to have your Golden Hind, yes,” I say nodding.“And why shall I give it to you...” She trails off before I see her put the arrow in the bow and point it towards me, “Nefret?”“Because I will return it to you.” I manage to speak clearly with my heart racing in my chest. My head is throbbing and my mouth is dry as a desert.She keeps the arrow pointed at me while looking down at me pensively. For a moment, I forget to breathe, waiting for her next move. She has all the power to kill me now. It will be all over if she pulls the string.“You, Nefret...” She continues before lowering her bow, “are impressive.” I let out a shaky breath in relief when I see her put down the weap
Vesta:The virgin goddess of hearth~-HER-There’s this unknown force that’s compelling me towards the direction of brightness. I walk through the darkness, the hunger for light and the thirst for power lighting my insides with eternal fire. I am in a forest, walking through the trees, pushing the branches away from my way while my eyes are set on the brightness emerging from the distant bush.Finally, when I reach the bush and push its leaves aside, my eyes find hers. I couldn’t help but step out of the bush and into the clearing in whose middle she stood, waiting for me, watching me.Her vibrant blue eyes gazed into mine. They’re similar to mine in every way.A wolf.Majestic and powerful. Her auburn fur appears to be golden as the light emanates from her. Throwing her head back, she let out a howl before charging towards me. I stood there, unable to move my fe
-HIM-How did she do it? How was she able to survive my deadliest of blows? I have immense power. I have the capability to destroy half the world in just a blink but she survived it, how?How could a mortal like her survive my power? I must find out. I head towards the pack she belongs to. After reaching the Alpha’s house, I climb into her room through the window to find it empty but as soon as I step inside, this particular scent hits my nose that makes my wolf lose control.He’s pacing impatiently inside me to find out the source of this scent. It excites him, it calms him. It’s making him lose control. He wants to take over me and follow the scent to find out its source. I have come to this room before as well, but I didn’t find this scent then.I try to fill my lungs to the brim with it, it’s so addicting. I can’t help myself. I want more of it. If I get the source of this scent then I am going to keep it. Listening to my wolf, I follow i
REYmeaning: King.- HIM-I have committed yet another crime.“You’ll have to suffer for this!” Atropos bellows before the three of them disappear, leaving me behind with my mate.I finally look down at the young she-wolf in my arms. She surprised me from the first time ever I laid eyes on her.I remember peeking through the window and seeing her for the first time. She gave me a rose and called me‘mate’.That day was the first time I felt the emptiness in my life for not being blessed with a mate and now, she is the destined one. She made me realized what I was missing and now, she is the one to fulfill my need.I was angry when she crossed me and I took my anger out on her in the form of physical pain when she outsmarted me. I never wanted to admit it but she is smart. She is powerful for a mortal. She completed the tasks successfully without hesitating for once. My wolf is angry on me
-HER-I woke up feeling drunk. I don't remember anything that happened last night except for me getting dressed for my birthday ceremony before going to the pack house and taking the Calentha Oath.I let out a big yawn as I examine my dress from last night. It's wrinkled because of me sleeping in it. Vesta wakes up along me. She is oddly happy but at the same time sad as if someone has left us. I yawn again and realize that I made it alive through my eighteenth birthday. Let's see how long I'd survive next.I crawl out of the bed and take a shower. Surprisingly, my pale blue eyes have some color in them today. They look vibrant and fresh, unlike other days. For the first time, my eyes aren't red and I look... presentable?I don't know why and how these changes happend. Maybe it's because of Vesta. Who knows? I finish showering and dress up before heading downstairs for breakfast. Several cheerful voices echo in the dining room as I step off t
-HER-“I am the queen,” I say, my voice echoes throughout the ruins as my lips curl into a smirk. Vesta howls inside me in approval. Power, that’s what I want. I want to be powerful.“Indeed you are.” A voice boomS throughout the place and I freeze. Footsteps e
