He howled,tore his skin open as claws grew,canine longer than usual and those eyes turning dangerously golden yellow.
This was not the Jeremy she knew. Yet she watched under the full moon in the humid darkness of this forest from a distance how her best friend turned a werewolf.
Weren't this monsters supposed to thrive in fantasy novels and folklores?.
This dazzling black wolf sniffed her and without further ado,targeted her as it's prey. It growled,she ran.
Thumping her heels on twigs and dry leaves while her red hair brushed through branches and leaves. She whimpered hearing the trotting paws of a werewolf. Her ankles sprained as she inadvertently fell into a depression and at that moment she concluded she was doomed. Her bones began to shudder,her hearts beating racing loudly and her breaths heavy as they toured out. She tried to move but her pain wouldn't let her. It shot up from her sprained ankles to her ribs, rigidly holding her down to the loamy sands. She exhaled once she was greeted by the terrifying creature preying towards her.
There he was,growling at her,taking stealthy steps as he circled about her. Claws digging into the ground, his furs arising and his canines baring in the under the grace of moonlight.
He was ready to tear her apart.
"J-jeremy," she voiced weakly in a trembly tone while her eyes fixated to his deeply. She hoped some part of him would recognize her but Nay. He barked ferociously in return causing her to whimper and embrace the new wave of fear. Her eyes sealed but tears flowed regardless, she simply hoped for a miracle.
A torrent of wind blew past her hair,a loud groan followed suit. The painful howling of the wolf and thrusting sound forced her to open her eyes.
Tears bathed her cheeks as she watched this young man and her best friend turned werewolf battle roughly with unimaginable speed,strength and their never ending growl.
In a minute,this man had speared his silver knife to the wolf's leg which in turn pitched another howl,whimpering and it's dangerous eyes now yearning for help.
Was she to smile and heave a sigh of relief or let her fear further taunt her?. She was struck in a limbo as she watched Jeremy stagger on his paws and escape from the death grip of her savior.
Her mystery saviour walked gallantly towards her.
"Are you okay?" He extended a hand to pull her up. His voice soothing yet dangerously hoarse.
She looked up only to see monstrous reddish black eyes,canine as long as Jeremy's and sharp claws from the hand he extended. The fear that had relatively lessened gripped her again. Yet she foolishly accepted his hand.
"What are you?" She pronounced in a fear stricken tone.
"A Monster." He answered huskily while he pulled her to a stance.
She exhaled instantly from the pain that coursed through her body. She had also grown weary of his presence. And indeed,his words lived up to it's name. His countenance as dark as his attire.
"If you cherish your life,I'll advice you to run before I rip you apart." He stated lucidly.
If your saviour is meant to save and allay your fears this one was different. Without doubt she believed his warnings and shove all thoughts of worries for Jeremy aside.
"I'll give you thirty minutes to scurry away from this forest, for I can't assure you your life after my limits." He stated in a rather authoritative manner.
The pain in her ankle still blossomed making her wobble
"Run!" He growled.
She squeaked again putting more effort into her legs. She grew worrisome for Jeremy again but given the situation,she couldn't dare to think of saving a savage wolf.
THREE DAYS LATER.
Days passed and still no sign of Jeremy. Of course nobody except her Mother gave a worry about his disappearance; he his an orphan and she's his only family left. The unfortunate night which she kept secret still rang daily in her head but she chose to believe Jeremy was possessed by a demon or something.
School begins today and the thought of starting it alone dampened her. She sighed heavily,jamming her locker with hopeless eyes.
"Easy,darling" Said the young man huskily,whose locker were just beside her. His head were fixed into his locker,apparently fizzling through stuffs.
Her eyebrows danced haphazardly. His voice and stature were a sheer resemblance to her mysterious savior.
"I know that voice somewhere." she responded.
He brought out his head staring uninterestingly at the red haired totally gawking at his handsomeness.
"Hmph.." He whispered to himself;probably one of his one night stands.
"Yes!" Her tone pitched after she had spent minutes examining this newbie in BELGRAVE HIGH. She stepped closer yet fearful of his presence. "You saved me from the Wolf months ago in the forest." She lowered her voice.
He focused purely on his books that he kept arranging. "I've killed many wolves for the past month now. I'm sorry I don't recall."
Taken aback by his bluntness was an understatement!. Nevertheless,all she wanted was to know the status of her best friend. If he survived or died by his hands.
"That you asked me to 'SCURRY' away before 30 minutes elapses." She explained.
He stopped his work,deciding to stare at her till he could get a memory of the red haired.
"Oh....I think I remember now." He answered coldly.
"Well," she spoke again. "I wanna thank you for saving my life."
"Funny," he scoffed. "I recall I wanted to eat you." he played a tiny smile on his lips.
She raised a questioning eyebrow. "Technically, you saved me."
"No. You ran."
"No!." She argued. "You told me to run."
He sighed,returning his gaze to his locker. Although there was still the fear,She gritted her teeth at his pride and rudeness.
"I don't understand why you're still standing here." He uttered, realising she stood there watching him in silence for 10 minutes now.
"Did you kill him?. He's my best friend." She replied. Her face totally optimistic for positive answers.
He scoffed again. "That aggressive beast who wanted to tear you apart is your best friend?" He remarked in an unsurprised fashion. "How adorable."
"Please I just wanna know,if he's still alive." She mentioned in an humbly manner. Her head mentally lecturing her about the monster within him. If anyone had told her this handsome young man was a demon,she wouldn't have believed.
He grinned. "Probably dead. Now if you'll excuse me,I have a class of simpletons to attend." He ordered,slamming his locker and brushed past her.
"Please," she held him by his left hand briskly. Then her hand dropped once he glared at her in an overly intimidating manner.
His face folded into a frown. "The next time you touch me without my consent," his husky voice proclaimed in a sadistic manner. "I will kill you."
She swallowed the saliva retained in her mouth as her eyes twitched.
"Jeremy means a lot to me. I know he isn't a monster. That night, I'm certain something possessed him." Fear enveloped her amidst other questions troubling her mind.
His grin grew devilishly as he stepped closer to her. His eyes could tell purely the actions he was about to take. "I don't care. Stay away from me if you don't want problems."
She watched him leave from her presence in a proud fashion. Although she could have taken his advice but for her love for Jeremy. She was going to do the exact opposite till she finds Jeremy.
The girls in Bella's class may have found themselves totally lost in his charms. His pompadour dark jelly hair, his enchanting grey irises and his Rosy red lips that made his light brown skin unique. But Bella shove all those girlish attraction away. Choosing to digest the fact that the monster is going to be her classmate!. Her fingers trembled recalling his dangerous nature at the locker."Class, Let's welcome our new student. Arthur Middleton." Mr. Alrik grinned wrapping his hands around Arthur's shoulder. "Finally! we have a new hottie in our class." The drama Queen arose from her seat walking like a seductress towards Arthur."Just so you know. The name is Alisha, Belgrave high cheerleader." She bit her lower lip.A tiny smile spread across his lips. Bella frowned; finding his smile so superficial yet sinister. It made her worry."Okay Lisha, please return to your seat." Mr Alrik beckoned. "Now," His grip on Arthur's shoulder tightened. "I trust you'll all do well in giving him a
"And welcome to detention!" Alisha pronounced in a grand gesture amidst themselves in the class. Bella sighed, choosing to delve into her history journals. This was the only way to save herself from Alisha's rants and Arthur's hostility. They were only four that breathed in the class. Her, Alisha, Joe and Arthur. No matter how hard she tried, She couldn't focus. Jeremy's constant worries and Arthur's lukewarm nature was enough to burden her. She thought of his words about her mother. What he meant by a Supernatural species Hunter. Her mother was only a Sheriff and imagining her hunting beasts like Jeremy and Arthur was virtually impossible. On the other hand, Arthur didn't strike her as a liar. Arthur smiled from the back end chair he was seated. His eyes reviewing the Cheerleader of Belgrave high. Dashing gold coloured hair, small and pointed nose, enticing pink lips, nice cleavage and a fairly manageable hip. His smile deepened appreciating her work of art. He had two thoughts sca
Rays of light, birds chirping, twigs, dry leaves, tall trees. Jeremy could feel everything. He rubbed his face against the loamy sands before he realised he was completely naked against the soil. He arose quickly to his feet with his eyes scampering around. Studying the new environment.This place was new, he thought and definitely not in Covington. Where was this place? He asked himself before his eyes fell on a lady. Standing metres away from him and dressed in an all black attire. Her long straightened hair were donning a darker shade of blue and he could smell the scent that reeked off her. His senses were operating on a whole new level. They were heightened; his nose picked scents miles away, his hearing noted even the tiniest sound, his myopic eyes could even see better!. How he arrived here, why he was naked this sunny afternoon and who this lady was greeting him with hostility, were questions that puzzled his fragile mind.The last he remembered was the excruciating pain he fa
The style at which Bella arranged her stuffs which were mostly books, journals, and novels in her locker almost played a smile on her lips. But when she recalled the turbulence she was phasing through, it dampened her. Then she heard her neighbouring locker open noisily and no doubt, it was the most dreadful person's doing. Arthur Middleton.Her heart began to pace and her palm gradually turned cold from shivering and anxiety. Recalling her mother's words, she understood the Vampire wouldn't hesitate in killing her if she pressed the wrong buttons. So rather than indulge in a conversation with a blood sucking being, she decided to scurry away. She closed her locker briskly and was about to pace away when he held her back with his words."Get ready tomorrow. You and I are going to my Witch's abode." He muttered in his usual icy tone. She clutched tightly to her books leaning against her chest. She turned to his Grey coloured irises blooming in an intimidating manner. His hair was neatly
As the police vehicle drove on a silent street of Covington, Arthur had planned various strategies in escaping from the clutches of the law. These ignorant cops were oblivious of his true nature and simply following the orders of Sheriff Cosgrove. He planned on killing them but decided against it as that will be too obvious. It would only worsen the situation. Hence he opted for the other plan. "I need to pee." He pitched innocently from the back. One of the officer smirked at him while the driver pressed on. "Don't worry, you'll have lots of peeing to do when we reach CPD." He said to Arthur's dissatisfaction. "Please, I can't hold it any longer." Arthur grimaced a pleading face in harmony with his polite tone."We'll stop by at the next public toilet. Now shut your mouth!" The driver sounded sonorously in an authoritative mannerism. Arthur relaxed for minutes before the vehicle came to a solemn halt. The Policeman handling the wheels alighted first, opening the rear door cautio
News spread like wildfire upon the sheriff's disappearance neither did another brutal murder stop from happening. The Town of Covington had soon descended to a temporary lockdown with curfew imposed on it's citizens. Fear and uncertainties had started to seep into hearts of the Innocents; for the nights brought deaths and terror. The joy and liveliness that once breathed in this small town now brewed into tension and quietness.Arthur heaved an heavy sigh thinking about the recent changes. To a human, the lockdown was simply imposed to curb deaths and find Sheriff Cosgrove. But to the Supernatural world, this was clearly a declaration of war. A war between the prestigious Hunter Families of Covington and Supernatural creatures. Precisely the Werewolves and Vampires. Most times Witches were spared but the same fate can't be said for the rest. There existed a time, when the Supernatural creatures were in unison with humans of Covington. A past where they all lived in harmony until Nicod
And so, the Lockwood's annual party came to an abrupt terrific end. One could start with the police circling about the bloody scenery or the blaring tone and lights of several ambulance vehicles. Perhaps one could start with the bodies itself. Some had their hearts ripped out of their chest, others had obvious bite marks across their necks. But the main worries were the identities of these people killed. Dan and his clique alongside security guards. Bella would have assumed Arthur did the killings but he was with her during the ugly incident. And for the first time, she chose to believe his words. Whoever was doing this meant more harm than Arthur. "Bella Cosgrove." A tall heavily built man uttered beside her. His appearance formal and in harmony with his dark clothing. It wasn't far-fetched this man was a bodyguard. "Mr. Lockwood requests of your presence. Please follow me."She nodded and was about to depart from the ugly scenery until Arthur held her abruptly. Grinning sinister
The chirping of birds and the heating sensation of sun rays gradually stole Jeremy from his long sleep. He couldn't tell how long he'd passed out nor if he were still held by chains. Suspending him midair and giving him the most gruesome pain he's ever experienced. His eyes awoke lazily and his stomach grumbled. Complaining about the long starvation. His lips were dry and his skin pale from long exposure to air and beatings. Realization dawned on him as he enjoyed the comfort of the small rickety bed. He was in a room designed like an hut and made out of oak wood. The silky brown blanket shielded him from his toe and up to his hips. Leaving his chest bare. How he had gotten here remained a mystery he didn't want to solve. All he thirsted for is to enjoy this comfort while he could. "You're finally awake." Said the stranger who emerged into the hut. His appearance elderly like one in his mid sixties. He had a grin that expressed how grateful he was, his pure Hazel iris glimmering in
