Watching from the distance, there are men bringing in large machines and I count about five. Watching each closely as they place something on the tree's closest to them walking side by side. If they move any closer, I will have no choice but to kill them all.
Noticing the man in bright clothes from earlier, he started speaking to a tall man with dark brown hair. Sitting up slowly, I glide closer towards them as I stay hidden within the trees.
Without making a sound, I listen closely as the man named Gabriel talks about how he knows of me. I didn't know there was word of me existing and the men I killed were looking for me. Good, he is lucky to be alive and spread word about being in my forest.
A laugh erupts from the man and as he turned, my heart fluttered. Why does he look so familiar? Dark brown hair with blue eyes and as he looked into the forest, his face was at peace.
Tyler Chose to walk me home from school today and I was unsure why. We have about twenty kids in the school of all ages but Tyler is the only one of my age and I think he is the best looking one. "Nix, I really like you. I think we should go on a date." Feeling my heart beating out of my chest, I turned away from him to let my cheesy smile grow.
Taking a few deep breaths, I turned back to him and smiled. "You do? Why me?" Waiting for his answer, I notice him placing his hands into the pockets of his jeans. I sure hope he feels just as nervous as I do because this silence might be the death of me.
"Well, I think your cute and when I see you every day my heart starts going really fast. I think you might be my mate and if that is the case, I want to spend each day with you." My cheeks started turning beat red realizing Tyler felt this way about me and I have nothing to say back.
Looking in the distance, my house comes into view. Seeing Tyler stop walking, I turn towards him and smile. "I understand if you don't want to..." He started saying as I took small steps making it back to where he stood. As he rose his head, I placed a quick kiss on his cheek and watched his face light up. Letting out a giggle, I start running towards my house as I yell, "I would Love to!" Just after closing the front door, I place my back against it and start hearing him cheering outside. I'm going on my first date...
That man out there is not Tyler. My Tyler died when the town was murdered and I buried him. There was not much left of the remains from my people but I did count the exact number of bodies. Feeling my anger rise remembering the only one I loved being taken from me, as I gazed upon this man... I start to calm.
Feeling confused, I start to back away just as our eye's connect. Looking over his facial features, he looks so much like him it hurts. Feeling the pain in my heart, I break our glare and head home. I am so tired of feeling this hope my family is alive to being reminded they are not. I buried them all and nothing will take that pain away.
Making it away from the men, I strip my clothes off and place them to the side. I need to run and clear my head. I need to decide on staying in the only home I know or consider leaving. The safest thing for me will be to leave but I don't think I can let them just tear my family from the ground.
"Excuse me ma'am?" Letting out a sigh, I look down and realize I am still standing naked. Shaking my head, I turn and see the man standing behind me in the distance. "Are you alright?" He moved closer towards me as I took a step further away.
"Stop where you are and just leave." Watching his eyes search over my bare back, my heart started to flutter and I just wanted to run away. "My name is Jack and I am here..."
Turning around in a hurry with no care, I cross my arms over my chest and I glare upon this man. "You are here to tear down my forest. You are here to get rid of all this beautiful wildlife and my home? You going to kill me too?" Watching his face turn into shock, I turned as I grabbed hold of my clothes to place them back on. There is no way I will be shifting in front of a human and it looks like he won't be leaving any time soon.
"Sorry for my expression, I was unsure you spoke good English. I don't wish to kill you; I want to help you. We get paid to tear down trees. It's not my choice..." A laugh rumbled from me and as I finished placing my shoes on, I stalked towards the man as he looked towards me in fear.
"You have a choice. Each person has a choice to do better yet man always chooses the bad. Why? Why do you people always want destruction when things are beautiful the way they are? My people never harmed humans and what happened? They were all fucking slaughtered!" A roar erupted from my lips as I watched him back away from me. Good, he should be afraid.
"You're sorry? Sorry doesn't bring my family back. It doesn't fix the fact that I have lived the last ten years alone and fighting for my home and peace! I had to grow up fast because the ones who were needing to raise me died! And you stand here in your nice clothes telling me your sorry? Don't fucking pity me, just leave and never come back." Turning around, I start running as fast as I could to get away from that infuriating man. There is something about him that I love and hate. I love how familiar his face is but hate how naïve they all are.
Turning around, I see him standing in place just watching me as I leave. Why is he not leaving in fear? All I know is the next time I come in contact with him or any other human in my woods, I won't be as kind.
Jacks POV- The pain shows on her bare skin as marks cover her frail body. I have never seen a more beautiful woman but something is drawing me towards her. Towards her stunning gray eyes. I have dreamt about those eyes most of my life but the dream plays on repeat each time. Running throughout the woods in the dark of the night as I feel my heart racing. My heart was racing from excitement, not fear and as I turn around, the same gray eyes follow closely behind me. Picking up pace, heat boils inside of me as my adrenaline races. Hearing a howl in the distance, peace sets inside me as I feel safe. Safe knowing no harm with come to me as I continue my journey. Coming to a stop, fog surrounds me as I place my hands on my knees breathing a much-needed breath.
Jack's POV- Driving down the road, the smell of fresh tree's is something that can calm your soul. A small smile spread to my lips as the memory of her beauty replays in my head. I can't believe she has lived out there for so long while being alone. If the stories are true and her whole town was murdered, I know the last thing I would do is stay. The drive to my father's house was only a couple hours from the forest. My father is an understanding man and once I tell him about what I discovered, I'm sure he won't mind canceling the job. Pulling up to my dad's large house, relief spreads across my face seeing his truck in the driveway. His home is located in his own part of town with a few houses around. He knows all the neighbors and they are quite friendly. As a kid, I have very little memories, only the ones that come to me in dreams but my father said I spent my whole childhood here. I think if I had fond memories of this place, they would be remembered rig
Making it closer to the noise, I notice the familiar man and rush towards him. "Tyler, I am so sorry..." Pausing in mid-sentence, I look up to him and watch as his smile grew. "Sorry Ma'am, my name is not Tyler, Its Jack. Nice to officially meet you." Reaching his hand out, I hesitate at first but then I slowly grab his hand and he shook them. Tingles ran from my fingers down my arm and the fear of what that could have been made me take my hand away as fast as possible. "Sorry." I say as I back away trying to keep the distance between us. Watching him sit up, he grabs hold of his leg and grunts while backing up to lean against the tree. "You have quite the arm miss." Watching the blood drip out, I rip the bottom of my shirt so I can stop the bleeding. "You need help, this is a pretty bad gash." Tying it tight, he grunts at the pain as his heart races. Looking into his eyes, the hazel or
"You going to kill me?" His low husky voice rumbled through me and as I stood above him holding my grip, he was able hold back my strength. Watching him closely, I watch before my eyes as his gash slowly heals before my eyes. Releasing the stick, I jump off the bed and back away from this man before me."What are you." I whisper as my back is met with the wall. The man slowly rose from the bed and gathered on his feet. As he walked towards me, there was no gimp or flaw in his stride. "The real question is, what are you?" Slowing, he continued to walk towards me and just before I was able to feel his breath on my skin, he broke my stick with one hand. "It can't be..." Looking him over, I was unable to sense it in him."Why not, you don't believe you are the last of our kind do you?" Taking one last step towards me as he rose his hand and
Jack's POV-I have never seen a wolf so beautiful. Her coat is this light caramel color with white tips for toes. Her eyes stay the same and each time I look at them, my soul is pulled closer to hers. I wish there was a way I could bring her family back and help her heal but if anyone knows loss, its me.My father hid away what he truly does. The families that live around his house are all wolves in hiding and I only know that by their smell. After hitting my head, my memories came flooding back and my father rescued me. Our town was attacked by the same hunters and as a kid, I was able to hid. The moment I saw him, I knew he was my only chance at survival since my parents told me about a man that helped our kind. A man that was caring and could provide safety.That day, I watche
Silence filled him as I sat in bliss enjoying the first hearty meal I have had in weeks. Hunting is easy but having distractions or your occasional unknown noise scaring the wildlife away is what makes it hard."Then how do you explain the feeling that runs through my fingers as I touch your skin?" Shrugging my shoulders, I grab another piece of meat and shove it in my mouth. I know I wont be able to avoid his questions forever but the longer I eat, the more I am able to stall."Or what about the dreams I've had about you. They must mean something." As he leaned back in the chair, his thoughts were somewhere unknown. I need to admit, the curiosity about his life and what happened to his pack grows the more time I spend with him. I wish there was the perfect man for me and he will take me away from this hell I have been living but I live
As my heart was beating out of my chest, I looked over the figure standing before me looking for one flaw but there was none. This is not possible. He can't be standing here before me. "You died..." I whisper as a small smile made its was to his face. Lowering the hood on his head, I get better view of his face and it feels like I'm seeing a ghost."I thought you died." A chuckle left his lips as he placed his hands inside his dark blue jeans. "Can we go somewhere to talk Nix?" I have never been more confused in my life. I would have expected Jack to have found me since I was his mate but no, the one who found me was in fact Tyler."Um, sure." I turn and watch Tyler catch up to me as we strolled down the sidewalk in town. Silence filled the air as this awkward situation continued. Making it to my apartment, I unlock the door and walk in
After my long walk around town, I stopped to grab some dinner and headed back to my apartment. Working all day and then having to deal with the blast from my past has wore me out. Walking up to the door, things seem quite which I was relieved about.Opening the door, I walk in closing it behind me and the place seemed empty. Making that mistake before, I searched the whole place top to bottom. Finally being able to relax, I lock the door and decided a movie before bed would be perfect. My movie of choice tonight will be Blood and Chocolate. Even though the wolves are completely inaccurate, I admire the love story. A wolf falling for a human but her whole family is against it along with being destined to be with the leader. I would never be with him especially since he was with her aunt and is her cousins dad.Laughing at the thoug
