After the run in with his brothers, Jasper spent the rest of his day strolling around the mansion in a bid to avoid them. At some point, we bumped into each other and spent some time together. He got into an argument and got scolded at. So it's safe to say he was having the best day of his life. As his brothers departed, he knew he also had to leave, especially since Madam Taylor didn't like the idea of me being with one of the Maxwell brothers. "Remember what I told you and please don't cry anymore. He stood upright "See you later Diana." He said with a smile. "Let's meet after the funeral okay."
Strange. I didn't want to cry anymore after all I had made a promise not to, and now, I really didn't feel like breaking it. I had never met someone similar to me in my entire life. Although we had separate lives, we were similar in so many ways and that made me happy.
I really feel like a fool by standing here and doing nothing. I raised my hand to the sky, waving a goodbye to Jasper while he smiled back at me. I continued until he had fully disappeared. I turned to leave and felt like someone was staring right at me, so I look around and spotted Madam Taylor who had been watching the scenario from the balcony. I could tell she wasn't happy to see what just happened. Her hatred for me was the reason, and there was no changing that. But honestly I don't feel worried anymore, I had the support of two people now, I've gotten the encouragement I needed to keep my head high..
"Diana, hurry up." Miss Hailey yelled as she ran around with so many sheets. I carried a set of plates and set them on the table, arranging them accordingly, in good fashion, am sure this was how mother used to set them. "Where did you learn to do that?" I heard her say.
"Huh." I was just about to place the forks when Hailey asked that question. Diana gave a warm smile and put them down nicely. "Oh this, it was something my mother would teach me. I didn't do much so I was thinking this could be a great chance to try it." I said. If only I could speed things up. I wonder if the funeral is over now.
"Okay, but you better hurry, they should be arriving any time now." I looked up at her in shock, she said that on purpose that's for sure. There were mutterings coming from behind the door, it was loud enough for my device to catch it. Almost everyone had stopped their chores half way, Miss Hailey broke out in cold sweat and that made me worry. I wonder who it was that made Miss Hailey this afraid, whatever it is, I don't like it. "Diana. Behind me." Miss Hailey said.
No need to tell me twice.
I didn't hesitate and ran towards her, Miss Hailey shoved me behind and waited patiently for the people about to enter.
Suddenly the place became quiet and the door to the dinning hall opened. Two identical twins stood outside the room, they had three wolves following them around.
With their eyes and nose, they scanned the entire room and everyone inside, until a finger pointed at me. "So. You are Diana." One of them said.
Hailey stepped forward. "Master Derrick, Master Charles. Good that you're back in one piece. Welcome home." I could tell she was trying to change the topic. Not that it worked, it only made everything worse. Derrick seemed to be pissed, seeing that Hailey covered for me, rather than let him finish.
"Shut up I'm talking to the girl." He yelled. The dining became silent and the maids stopped working. "Come." He said. Am not going anywhere. When I resisted the wolves came forward to execute "plan B". They growled angrily at me for refusing.
See, this is why we keep dogs inside and not wolves, you can never argue with them. Derrick walked behind Hailey and forcefully grabbed me. I fought back but when he made an attempt to break my bones I gave up.
"Now Diana, we have a couple of questions we need you to answer for us regarding your family and your true intentions. We need to know why you're here so come with us." The other said. I didn't have a choice. When I looked behind I saw the face of the angry wolves and knew it was best to leave with them.
"The child is naive and sensitive, please don't hurt her Master." Hailey pleaded, but they paid her no mind. They left the kitchen with Hailey watching with fear.
Once we got to the study, Master Derrick threw me to the floor, that I banged my head. I wanted to cry so badly but each time I thought of crying, I could see Jasper's face wiping my tears and asking me not to cry, gosh, was a promise that effective. I could remember my promise and fought back my tears. "Speak will you!" Derrick yelled. He tried to reach me once again but a hand stopped him. The other one, Charles held his shoulder and asked him to stop. He took control of the situation and dragged her up on her feet, throwing me towards the door. I closed my eyes, hoping to fall but was surprised when I felt someone hold her tightly.
"What are you doing big brother. I thought I told you not to go after her." When I heard this, I had only one thought. Jasper.
"You don't have the right to speak, this is my house and we kept her in our house as a maid so stay away." Derrick says.
"Listen big brother. This house was also divided for the seven of us. I have equal rights to this house so she is also my responsibility, and I say stay away from her. Don't hurt her again, can't you see how scared she is."
Derrick was furious. "Hey, stay out of this okay."
"No. I won't. I'm leaving with her." He took my hand and led me out of the room. "Lets go Diana." He was suddenly pulled back. He was lifted from the ground and in the air. Derrick was holding him high like he was nothing but a paper.
"Don't tempt us little brother." Charles said, he was well composed unlike the other but I have a feeling he's equally dangerous.
"Okay, okay calm down guys." A voice said from behind Jasper. The other brothers joined in, walking into the study. "Jasper is Diana's friend, and Diana is his friend, it's very possible that he got angry because you're bullying his friend."
"And who asked you to speak Allen." Derrick asked.
"I'm part of this family too so..."
"Shut up, I never wanted you to be part of this family."
"Well it can't be helped now can it... It's not my fault our father wasn't satisfied with the two if you." That was a wrong thing to say, and Allen paid for it with a powerful punch. from Charles. The more the brothers tried to separate themselves the more they got intertwined.
"Lets go Diana." Jasper whispered as he grabbed my hand, fled the scene.
Both of us gave a sigh of relief after losing them. Soon we burst into laughter, I couldn't hold it any longer, I've been holding it all the way but now it came loose. "I think we lost them." Jasper said. "And I don't think they've noticed we've left yet. Hey Diana." He turned to me, shocked to find my eyes watery. I couldn't even look him straight in the eyes anymore. I was so scared. "Hey ! Why are you crying? I thought I told you not to cry anymore, you promised me." He told me. I could sense anger in his voice while he said so. I thought I could hold back my tears just this once. But I failed in it already.
"I'm sorry. I'm so weak. I couldn't even keep a promise as simple as that."
"Don't say that. Alright. Make me a new promise, that you won't cry from today, this should be the last time you cry. I really don't like it when you cry or blame yourself, or call yourself names so enough of this okay." Staring at him, I was once again fascinated by his simplicity and kindness that it warmed my heart. I quickly nodded and dried my tears.
"I won't cry anymore. I promise." I said. He held his chest and breathed a sigh of relief.
"I honestly thought you won't agree." He said. Although he looked relieved, there was something bothering him, something he had to get off his chest. "Hey Diana. I'm leaving the country and I'll be gone for a while. I have no idea how long, my mother says it's for the best so I have to go. Since she's my only family I can't leave her. I'm afraid today's the last day we'll meet, so I guess this is a goodbye." What.
"A goodbye?" I repeated.
He nodded. "Yes. These two days I've spent with you was something I would never forget. Its been the best holiday ever. I never thought I'd be happy here, I never wanted to be here in the first place. But I don't regret coming here thanks to you. So I guess what I want to say is thank you. For making me smile again." He said.
"No. Thank you. For everything. Am so happy I met you. I might be little but one day I'll repay your kindness okay. By then I'll be grown up, just you wait." I promised.
"Hey don't think I'll ever forget about your promise to me not to cry. No matter what, I'll always remember it. And even if you think of breaking your promise, just close your eyes, am sure you'll remember this face and stop crying in seconds okay." He said.
"Great." He stopped for a while, like he was thinking about something. "Hey, may I hug you." A hug! I nodded and he smiled. "Thanks." He said. Quickly he embraces me in his arms and hugged me tightly, it wasn't like the time in the study. This time it felt nice, it felt like he didn't want to leave. His escorts found us in no time and walked up to him.
"Master, your mother is waiting in the car." He withdrew and waved goodbye at her, the both of us parting separately.
"Diana." I heard someone call, I stopped and turned around. I didn't see much, all J remembered was Jasper saying thank you and running away with his phone in his hand. Did he just steal a picture without my permission. Still I feel hopeful that one day. The both of us will be reunited.
Over the years everyone had left the mansion and went to live separately including Madam Taylor. She moved with her sons, (can't say I wasn't happy though) the only people who didn't move were Dave and Evan. Someone had to keep watch over the mansion since they were all going their separate ways and they volunteered. I was also happy that happened, otherwise I would have had to see the faces of the twins everyday.As I wiped the dishes, Aunt Hailey came over to me, looking over excited and happy. Which I find awkward considering how unpredictable she could be some times. "Guess who's coming over Diana." Aunt Hailey whispered to me, I wasn't really sure about what she was trying to do, considering the fact that I knew no one except her. So who would actually make me overjoyed, or is it someone she knew.I shake my head and reply. "I don't know, can you please tell me." I wouldn't be too bothered except she was blushing a bit too much
Well, I guess that's the last of what I need. [Sigh]. This fool came along to get his watch and ended up paying for everything so I gave it back to him.. I checked my phone and although it's late, I'm happy I got everything on the list. "Hey." He called from behind. I wonder why he's still following me. I gave him his watch. A normal person would be on their way but not this guy. Ignore him Diana, he's just a nuisance. "Hey." The minute he drew me back we bumped into each other again, no one fell, but I definitely dropped something. The world suddenly lost it's sound.Oh no! my hearing aids. No, no, no. Where is it?I bent down to search for it but I couldn't find it, where did it fall to? What will I do now? please come out.After searching for almost twenty minutes, I gave up. There was no point standing there to hear him out because I won't hear him, I'm not sure he understands sign anyway. The
Master Liam smiles broadly at me. "He's going through some stuff, don't let it get to you" He apologized. Just what did he mean by that. Thinking about it is enough to give me a headache.
As I leave, I can feel him bore a hole through me with his eyes. It's so intense that I can't help but shiver. Does he still hate me, or not, please make up your mind Charles.
When I try to leave, his grip just tightens and it doesn't budge at all. How much strength does he have? "What the!" At the sound of that voice, the both of us abortively turned towards the door, to find Jasper staring straight at us. The look on Jasper's face was sharp enough to leave me confused. He didn't say anything, he just stared blankly at us. Well am not to blame here, its his brothers fault for forcing me. I don't know what he wants with me but am a bit fed up. He's been following me for quite a while now, doesn't he have anything else to do lately.
Dang! It's that dream again. Although I can't remember how that dream went, I can tell it was the same one I have almost every night, why? Because no matter what happens I can never remember it. Every single time I have that dream, the moment I wake up I can't even remember the tiniest of details about it. The symbol of a wolf standing proudly gracefully mounted on every single one of the fleet of cars parked in the lot. The Blue Moon pack, The Red Moon pack, The Silver Moon Pack, The White Moon Pack and lastly, The Blood moon pack were present alas. The Powerful Five were a collaboration of the five most fierce Packs, and we just happened to be one of them as the brothers happened to belong to the Blue Moon Pack, so they were pretty much powerful and respected.

The symbol of a wolf standing proudly gracefully mounted on every single one of the fleet of cars parked in the lot. The Blue Moon pack, The Red Moon pack, The Silver Moon Pack, The White Moon Pack and lastly, The Blood moon pack were present alas.

There was no one to save me from dying this time, am filled with so many regrets, I couldn't prove my innocence. I could hear the wolves rush towards me, I could hear their growls, I could feel their hunger. "Stop." I hear someone yell. When I open my eyes, I find that not only had the wolves retreated but Charles is right in front of me, shielding me from harm. What is he doing here. My time in this house was supposed to be a secret right so how he knows I'm here baffles me.Latest chapter
