Dyan nods his head in understanding. "I understand what you mean. You're a Lycan after all. Your brothers were just trying to protect you."
You scoff absently. "I guess so."
How does feeding you vegetables protect you exactly? Instead of voicing that out, you just shove in another spoonful of this world's yummy delicacy into your mouth.
Yvon nibbles the bottom of her lip before placing another chicken leg on your plate, forcing a smile to show on her face. "Here. Eat more Calla. If you want, I can have the chiefs cook something similar for your midnight snacks."
"Sounds like a plan." You wink at her.
Later That Night.
It was silent and everything that was alive in this realm had finally shut down. Slowly setting the blanket aside, you step out of the bed and slowly approach the window. The eerie silence assures you that maybe tonight, you'd be able to escape.
Luckily there aren't any bars that could hinder your escape. This proves that Yvon's dumb enough to trust that you won't escape. Once you slide the glass up, you bring your foot up and step on the edge of the window before tightening your fingers around the side frame.
And then you gulp.
It's a long way to the ground.
You push yourself forward only to pull yourself back in an instant, biting your bottom lip in debation. Attempting to do it the second time doesn't work either. You let out a strangled groan. Why did it have to be so high?
From there, jumping from a twenty five feet room obviously isn't an option.
You blanch at the height and finally take a step back. The door. You have no choice but to use the door and pray that no one notices or hears you.
That'd be a total nightmare.
You wrap your hair up into a high ponytail using the scrunchie Yvon had given you and begin to inch closer to the door. Pressing your ear against it, you listen closely for any sign of noise.
You hear nothing after thirty seconds and take that as your signal.
As you push the door open, you end up cringing at the creaking noise it makes.
All your life, you were known to possess a photographic memory. You don't bother closing the door behind in order to avoid making more noises. The hallway finally is in your view and you know exactly where to go from here on. The exit should be on the left side of the castle, twenty steps after the kitchen entrance.
As expected, the hallway is silent devoid of people. At least for now, it is. The deeper you get lost in these walls, the more you happen to realize you're actually not alone.
Once, in a while, a guard would pass by. Back when you were on earth, one of your brothers had thought you a little trick in order to hide your smell. A little bit of powder - Yvon had happened to hand you some things to help you fix yourself with- and oil and a secret formula you always have with you had done the trick like always.
After three minutes of roaming the palace, you finally reach the kitchen. The exit should be just around the corner. Playing a victory song inside your head, you look around for any signs of a creature lurking around.
Again, you find none and race towards the door, slipping it open and finally getting exposed t the outside world. The palace's surrounded by a huge wall that strangely resembles the wall of china. Spikes decorate the surface of the wall but in the middle, you can spot a huge gate that will eventually lead you to the outside world.
To avoid getting caught by the guards, you take a left turn and land your back behind the wall. Yoonsi, your brother, always mentioned how you wouldn't get your Lycan powers until you reached a certain age. Little did he know, you had started obtaining twenty percent of it even before he had told you that. Back then, you found it rather repulsive. So much to the point that you kept it a secret from your brothers for two years. The reason why is because you wanted to just be perceived as a normal human being.
At least right now, you have a reason to use it.
You take in a deep breath and watch your hand begin to slowly shift. What was once delicate a pair of delicate hands with feathery fingernails, you watch your claws emerge to replace the once that had existed. A silver bluish fur begins to coat your hands as well, replacing your porcelain hands. And then you stop it.
For months, you've been secretly training yourself to transform on command since there had been situations when you found yourself transforming uncontrollably when you were out in the public.
Especially when you're in school. These transformations are often times triggered whenever you're stressed out. And this happens a lot in school. You eventually lost count of how many times It happened.
So far, the transformation that takes place is only around your hands so you were able to hide it when you were on earth.
Using your claws, you stab it against the wall and begin making your way up. The only downside of the experience is that it's actually painful to transform since you aren't used to it. It also takes the energy right out of you.
Mustering all the strength you can collect, you attempt to fasten up your pace a little faster. Just a little bit more and you'll finally be out of here.
Your claws dig the wall, retracts, and then stabs it again and after one final pull, you reach the peak and jump, landing on your feet professionally.
One of the things you've self learned is that you can skillfully land on your feet even if your body had gone through a twenty percent transformation.
Trees surround your environment but that doesn't stop you from running towards the forest. At this rate, it'll take them until daylight for them to find out you've escaped.
Where do go from here though?
You've thought ahead of that. If a wizard like Lionell exists in this realm, then they're bound to know how to go back to earth.
You give yourself a nod.
Your mission from here on out is to find a wizard.

It's like a wail of a thousand demons.The wind blows harsher, stronger, and it's getting colder. When you look up, it's as if the trees are devouring you. You can't see the moon. There's no light and darkness engulfs you. But you can definitely hear something. And whatever that thing is, it's coming closer.You feel your s
But why does it seem like something's preventing you from recalling the events of last night?Yvon slides her hand up and down your spine as if to comfort you. "I've prepared you varieties of clothes you know. They're in the closet if you wanna check them out."Forcing a smile to display across your lips, you look up to your best friend and say. "After breakfast.-Aziel didn't show up at the break fast table so Yvon ended up explaining that he had to leave to check on the borders.Whatever that meant.Dyan had left afterward saying he had to take care of some things.Breakfast was fantastic as always and you were given the permission to roam around freely after that.But before you could start your journey, your best friend had pulled you back
Yvon faces you. "How did you know that?"Humming, you lean back and reply. "I used to watch a lot of sports with my brothers. Basketball, tennis. But mostly Soccer. ""But Calla. This isn't any of those."As if that information was new to you, you pause a bit before nodding your head. "I guess you're right.""Where are you going?""Back inside." You respond to Yvon before heading in first.Yvon decided to stay and watch the men training for a few more minutes.With a hum vibrating from your throat, you slide your scrunchie down before tying your hair up again. Every now and then, you notice individuals popping up from left to right in the hallway using magic. It amazes you, to be honest. And as a Lycan, you'll probably never had the chance to experience that ability. It's just far beyond y
" I swear to god if I have to look at another flight ofbstaires again I will lose it." For the past ten minutes, you've been complaining non stop. You dont think you can take this anymore. You feel like dying.You feel like you could sleep for five days straight without waking up.The hallway of the castle seem so peaceful. A total contrast to what your feeling inside. After that hectic walk, you had to rely on Yvon for support since you felt like your legs could snap off at any minute. And that's saying something given what you really are. But you guess even your alter couldn't help you out on this one.You think you also ran out of air for a second there.Yvon out of all people should know what physical activities does to you. She should know how they're the one thing you despise. You just didnt really like them. As a matter of fact, she should know that they're a taboo to you. It's what ended you up here in the first place after all. Because you couldn
You woke up an hour later. So as you pull yourself up a bit, the sight of the moon comes into display from the window. With squinted eyes, you drag your gaze around the room like you're searching for something. But in reality, you're really not. Suddenly, your body feels light. Which is a good thing. You groan a little, trying to pull all of your consciousness up into the surface. It feels like you've had enough rest already. With fists planted above the bed, you haul yourself up until you're sitting up. Your hair's a mess and you think there's a patch of dried saliva beside your lips. Now that's disgusting. Either way, there's a bathroom for a reason. Yvon brought you some clothes to use. Might as well put them all into good use. Extending your arms, you let out a little groan as you stretch. After long hours spent on walking around, that's one of the best sleep you've ever had in your life. Using your fingers, you drag the stray strands of your hair away and slide out of the mattr
Dinner time had passed by in a snap for some reason and as soon as Yvon opens the door to your room and ushers you in, she begins pacing around like a person in so much stress. Even from a distant, you can practically see the mess of thoughts swirling inside her mind right now. Whatever she's thinking about, you have a feeling it has something to do with why she had Aziel pinned down to the ground moments ago. There's a hint of sympathy you felt for the person after seeing him in that situation. Although he could have easily swipe Yvon off of him, he chose go stay still and let her have her way. Throughout dinner time, the latter had remained quiet. Dyan however was the total opposite. He went on talking about the activities he accomplished today and it looked like it was a usual thing for him. You settle on your bed, keeping your gaze planted on the pacing girl. If this was a comic book, there would he a ginormous question mark floating on top of your head. You wonder what's got he
That girl wasn't lying when she said give be in the training grounds when you're not busy. The sound of swords clashing against each other and heat radiating off fireballs is all you can see, feel and hear. And you really dont want to be here. Not at all. It was fun watching it from a far but it's a whole different story when you're standing between chaos and havoc that can potentially kill you. Dylan's in the middle observing it all and the looks on his face shows nothing but disappointment. And it's something you can agree with. What even are these so called worriers doing? Although today you were told to watch and observe, you've noticed how their positions and stances were weak. Again. You so it the first time when you were with Yvon sitting up there at the bleachers gazing down, but now that you're here, it's clear as day where they're going room. You've been standing at the side, where theres a bench. And for the past hour of just watching and judging, you've missed gett
