"Run fast, you sleepyhead." Shouted Anna, from the open window of the Bus.
The bus departed with strong jerking as soon as HAZEL entered and her angry friends started attacking her with their words.
"Sorry for being late Anna. Again I missed the alarm. Don't be angry," murmured Hazel.
Ruth annoyingly replied, "We don't even expect your punctuality Hazel. You always do this. But today you have almost missed the bus. It's too much."
After a long effort, she could able to calm them and their party began. The bus was fully crowded with the students of Final year of Prince William Sound College at Valdez in Alaska. The cacophony of the bus was unbearable as every student was busy in shouting, singing and chit chat gossiping. There Hazel was really a mismatch because she was an extreme introvert girl with her voluptuous posture, dark brown wavy hair, beautifully expressive turquoise eyes, longer lashes and thin lips. Though her divine beauty and flawless fair skin couldn't be avoided by a single boy of her college but her mysterious and reserved attitude saved her from numerous proposal.
Although she was talkative with her only two friends of universe Anna and Ruth, both 20 years old like Hazel young, beautiful and energetic.
The bus reached its final destination after long two hours at Boreal forest of Taiga in Northern zone.
The wild dense forest doubled the young group's energy and excitement started over pouring among them seeing their tracking spot, the dense forest and snow covered mountain facing each other and the chirping of billion birds and sometimes the hoarse scouting of unknown wild animals were creating a mysterious atmosphere alike the spooky movies' scenes.
Hazel along with her 25 classmates and 5 Prof. reached their tents. It was already evening and they were already tired so they decided to commence their adventure from the next day morning. With the passing time the cacophony started increasing at the camp. Hazel was roaming alone near the tents with a torch absentmindedly as her friends were sleeping in the tents.
"Come dear, join us. Just one dance please Hazel." Requested Dereck, a tall, handsome and of course daring boy. In spite of being extremely famous among girls, he was mad for Hazel and already got rejected for two times yet a strong optimist. According to him, the bends of her hips and the fullness of her bosom reminiscent of the idea of perfection.
"No Dereck. Not in the mood. By the way don't call me Baby."
"Yups… someone got rejected again." whispered Alec, "Why do you always try to win her? Don't you know she is kind of beyond limits?"
"Not for me. Life is meaningless if I don't get the chance to touch her." Said Dereck in his low voice.
"Such a pervert. He has no shame at all. Don't know when he will be tired. His handsome face has become meaningless due to his repulsive personality," murmured Hazel and started walking again towards the forest.
This side was calm and silent except the monotonous sounds of wild insects as its little far away from their camp. Suddenly Hazel heard a faint growling. She slowly started to walk following the painful cry. Within couple of minutes she noticed a silvery gray wolf with its long bushy tail and golden eyes howling in pain. The front leg of the wolf was covered with fresh blood and it was trapped by a thorny net, maybe spread by the poachers. Though the wolf was healthy and medium in size yet it had no more strength left to fight or attack anyone and there was no chance of its survival from that trap without human or other wolves help. Hazel felt pity seeing its pathetic condition and instantly ran to help. Though she was afraid of its wild nature but its eyes were so humanly and she felt like it was asking for her help. So without any second thought she started to untie the thorny trap, though it was really difficult as it was tangled in a very bad way but her hands were working magically in a smooth way. She was not the only one who heard the growling so as a result of it a small crowd gathered around her along with Ruth, Dereck, Alec, Joey [Dereck's girlfriend], Anna and Prof. Henry. Most of them told Hazel not to untie because it could attack her but of course Hazel was an adamant girl, so their words went in vain.
"At last done. Ooowww! poor pup, I hope you will be alright" murmured Hazel after a long 10 minutes. She untied the whole trap though it was cost some bloody scratch all over her hands. She started cleaning the front leg with her handkerchief and the wolf pup lied silently without showing any sign of attacking. Almost the whole crowd lost its interest and left her except her friends and Prof.
"Ruth, can you please bring some water, some fried meats and piece of cloth? Please return quickly." Anxiously asked Hazel.
"Hazel you are really brave. Don't you scare of it?" asked Prof sweetly.
"Of course I do. But its eyes were asking my help and I couldn't reject that. This poor wolf pup is indeed cute. Don't you think?" excitedly asked Hazel.
Prof. replied, "It's not a pup, it's almost full grown and it's quite huge in size. So be careful."
Ruth came back and Hazel gave the wolf the fried meats. Within few minutes it completed all the meat and water and Hazel tied its wound after completing first aid treatments. The wolf was now in a better condition rather in a proper condition to walk, attack and kill but in spite of those it just came closer to Hazel and laid its head on her lap like a dog and started purring. Hazel patter its head covered with soft gray fur gently then it stood and started walking towards the dense forest. It looked back once again at her with its golden burning eyes from the dark forest. Hazel noticed there were three another pairs of eyes just like waiting for that wounded wolf, all eyes were staring at her gratefully. Then they all vanished in the darkness of the forest and the impenetrate darkness again engulfed the whole surroundings.
Hazel sighed happily and walked towards her tents.
HAZELI woke up with the harsh shouting of Ruth and Anna, exactly near my ears. Annoyingly I asked, "Why the hell you two are shouting like this?" "Because you don't come here to sleep but for having adventure. Right? So time for fun," Ruth shouted again.I dragged myself from the bed to be ready. Within hour we all gathered together in the middle of the camp and we were divided into five groups along with one Prof. as a group head. Our group included Ruth, Anna, Helen, Christi, Nick, me and Prof. Harry. Prof. Harry had really handsome flawless face with his sharp jawline, narrow sky blue eyes and thin eyebrows and he was always very gentle and helpful towards me. We got a task to complete like other teams which team would complete their task first and returned to their camp before others would be considered as winner. We started our journey towards the forest
HAZEL,When I regained my consciousness, I saw a cozy room extremely well furnished in a luxurious way and I lied in a soft and delicate bed and covered with a cherry red silk blanket. There was only Anna and a gorgeous girl in her black hair and grey eyes, looking at me, she shouted in her sweet teen voice, "Damien come fast. She is awake" and left the room hastily.Anna came beside my bed and asked, "Are you all right, Hazel? We were really worried."I replied feebly, "Yes, I am alright. Just my head, it is badly aching and feeling sleepy" and I pouted. She replied firmly, " you then lie down and take rest. If you need anything I am here."I hurriedly, "Where are we? Are we in hospital? But it doesn't seem like that. Who is that girl?"Instead of Anna, a low husky voice replied, "You are in our castle. I am Xander. And this my friend Damien. We have brought you here
HazelA lady in her mid-fifties entered along with Galaxy and a young boy. Xander introduced, "Meet my grandma Mable and this is Liam, Damian's brother," then he looked at his Grandma Mable and added, "She is Hazel, you both have already met her so I think I should leave now, Granny Good Night. Please take her good care, she must be in pain."The lady gently smiled at him and nodded and started arranging the table. The young boy, Liam was standing near the door with a broad smile in his face, looking like he was extremely happy seeing me and knew me from years. His dark hair and topaz eyes were similar with his brother Damian and the other girl Galaxy. But most unbelievable part was that how Xander's Granny was so young and there was no sign of wrinkle at all in her flawless fair skin.Before leaving Xander taking my hand said, "Rest well tonight, I will show you the castle tomorrow," winking at me he placed a soft gentle kiss on my knuckles and whispered,
HAZEL'YOUR HIGHNESS'"What the hell. I was with a king. Such a fool I am a. he must be a king, otherwise how can he own a castle. But why didn't he tell me? I shouldn't call him by his name, I think. I should say him sorry for this."My stream of thoughts were broken by his magnetic voice. He whispered gently, "What happen? You look like in tension. What is bothering you?" I only smiled and replied, "Nothing."He chuckled seeing my expression and then shifted his eyes towards other and said, "As you all know we have very beautiful guest today so today's toast is in her name. I want all of you to respect equally as you respect me. Any kind of disrespect towards her is a punishable offence from now."All seemed quite happy with my presence and in spite of his threatening words they all shouted together with smiles, "Long live Milady." Though I didn't understand that whole incident as I was busy in examining the royal me
HAZEL After lunch, Xander accompanied me to the first floor. There were also numerous rooms like the second floor with their huge decorated doors. He led me to the giant room among all, it was the extravagant room with a giant bed and attached bathroom and a balcony along with a stair leading directly towards that private garden. I exclaimed in wonder, "Wowww... It is beautiful. Your room? Right?" He smiled and nodded. Then he walked towards a piano at the corner of the well-furnished room and asked, "You know how to play?" I nodded right to left. He added, "Umm then be my judge." I took the seat beside him and in a blink of an eye, a melodious sound filled the room. It was soft full of passion, giving a soothing to my soul. I drowned in that sound totally it was so mesmerizing that no word was enough to describe. After a short span, I came back to reality as it ended. I looked at him and said with a little disappointment, "why do you stop soon? It was ex
History of Xander:Many moons ago, there lived a king, named Lycano. He ruled over the land of Arcadia and had thousands of men and women under his command. His palace was filled with gold, fine foods and elaborate art work, but one thing he did not have was love. One day King Lycano was haunting in the forest and he came upon a small lake. As he approached he saw a lady sitting at the edge of the lake, singing. King dismounted from his horse and approached her. When the woman turned to face the king, her incredible beauty struck him. The king had already fallen for this damsel, but the girl was none other than Fortuna the Goddess of Luck and Fate, the daughter of Jupiter. So king decided to prepare the greatest feast in the history of man to impress Jupiter. The king had prepared to host Jupiter over the course of seven days. Each day the king would try to engage the god and impress him with his wealth, great gifts but Jupiter would hardly look at the King. If king had
XanderThe young girl looked like little scared but with her trembling hands, she was treating Liam's wound in a smooth way. For a moment I froze stuck by her beauty.Along with Damien and Rachel, we started noticing her every moments. Then in her silvery tone, she asked her friend for some foods. Her bravery and caring attitude mesmerized me, a terrifying excitement built inside me as I walked few steps closer to her. A strong smell of sweet fruits and cherry filled my heart and my wolf instantly growled, Our Mate.'My Mate!'She was really my fated mate, the moment I came close to her I recognized her. Her scent was lingering all over the place. Her beauty was intoxicating and she was built to drive men wild. Everything about her was simply perfect. It seemed like she was born to be my mate, my queen, my Luna. I couldn't think about anything except for loving her and making love with her. H
HAZELThe night was quite peaceful. When I woke up next morning, I found that snow started to fall and the whole area was already covered with a thin layer of snow. It was a chilled weather outside. I was just peeping from the tent when Ruth asked, "Ohhoo, you are already awake. How are you feeling dear?" I replied with a smile, "Fit and fine." Anna yelled in excitement, "Then spill out what is going on between you and that handsome one with sapphire eyes?"I surprisingly asked, "You mean Xander? Ohho nothing special why?"Anna exclaimed, "Don't lie. I saw the way he was taking care of you, even yesterday he came to leave you." I blushed instantly but strongly denied, "Nothing at all," and left the tent for ignoring further interrogation. I already started missing him and I knew very well I was deeply in love with him, in such a short span of time, no matter the feeling was mutual or not. Soon we were called for breakfast, everyone individually asked about my he
