Training has been kicking my ass this week. Something inside of me shifted after I put Quinn in his place, and I wanted to ignore the feeling until I transformed into Dusk for the first time after.
My entire class looked afraid of me and I quickly realized that my wolf had bulked up more than I was. Dusk's entire aura had changed to be similar to Gideon's - menacing. In first ranks we learn the basics of fighting with your wolf, so that when you reach seconds you'll be prepared to face one another in both forms during the tournament to become a third.
My stomach dropped when I realized just how hard reaching thirds was. If the instructor was to be believed, most c
GIDEONThe first wave of snow hit the ground during the last week of November and it was as if time itself escaped me.We went from making care packages for the rogues escaping the could fall weather to leaving extra blankets and jackets for the unfortunate. My responsibilities lessened and within two weeks most of the people who lingered worriedly about Mordecai's ability to take over had completely stopped coming my way.It was as if my life became almost silent.The only thing anybody let me fret over was our annual yule celebration.

I didn't deserve them. 'Gideon you need to let me take over,' Otto was panicking inside my mind. Meanwhile Philo had long since run into the recesses for safety of what I might hurl their direction. To say I was able to be reasoned with right now was far beyond the truth. The moment the pains set in I knew a day I was dreading inevitably had come. "Gideon," this time it was my grandmother's voice breaking through the loud noise. I knew she wasn't going to take no for an answer. When Sadie set her mind to something she got what she wanted. It was where this retched bloodline's terrible curse of stubborness came from. Fuck. I was passing this onto Kailani as well. Just another fucking thing that was to be added to the mile long list of fuck ups I've made. "Gideon stop resisting and let Ottto take ov
