It has been two days since Emma woke up from her deep slumber, and Derek had never left her side; always with her, even stopping her by the door of the toilet. Sometimes he carried her; nobody knew why, but she limped sometimes. He didn't let her go to school too.
He had said that she was still feeble and weak for academic stuff, that she should rest more.
But today, she would be going home. And although she was happy to have spent enough time with her new friends, Eva included, and Derek; she still yearned for her the comfort of her own home, her own space.
"Emma.. you're ready?" Derek asked, walking into the room she had stayed in since she woke up in their infirmary.
"Yeah." She replied, standing up from the much bigger bed than the one at
"So Clem, tomorrow is your birthday..Huh?"Emma asked, turning her head to the backseat where the trio sat with Eva. Derek had insisted that she stay with him in the front seats of the car."Yeah." Clem, who had Maya sitting between Shane and he, replied; though still thinking and trying to understand why his sister had come to issue a personal invitation to them all. She had never done it before, well except to Derek, every year.But this that she had done today? There must be something she is planning to do. He hoped it was something that he could get her out of, if it didn't go as she had planned. No matter what, she was still his sister, his twin."Cool. Happy birthday in advance." Emma said, with a smile, happy that they were talkin
Maya smiled as Emma mentioned her birth month; it seemed there would be lot of celebrations this season. She thought. Clem and his twin tomorrow, her brother, the next two days, then her cousin. Funny how they were born days apart, each one of them.Remembering her brother's birthday, got her having mixed feelings. On one hand, she is happy that little Jeremy was adding one year, and on the other hand, she would have to be there for his big day, since he was turning 18, which meant that she would see her mate, Leo."Can't wait." She heard Sia, her wolf say.She shook her head negatively. She didn't think it would end well. She didn't think that the evil effects of the panjyo potion have been wiped out yet. She didn't think that her mate would be able to recognize her still. Rather, what filled her thoughts at the moment was the fact that her ex best friend, Zoe, would be having a good time with her own mate. She wondered if Zoe had found her mate. She wished tha
The car came to a halt finally at the white bungalow; Emma's house.A smiling Emma came out of the car, before Derek could rush over as a gentleman to open up her door.She was home."Finally.." Maya sighed, bringing up Eva from her laps, allowing the little girl to scoot over to the space which Shane's immediate exit out of the car had created, so that she could step down from the car.Together, they all walked away from the car, towards the front porch of the house, with Emma leading the way, since she was the one with the locks of the house.But when Emma got to the door, her eyes widened in shock and disbelief. Her door had been unlocked already, and there was no knob either. Her house has been broken into."Derek.." She called, turning away from the door to her boyfriend."Yes. What happened?" Derek asked, stepping closer to her, noting the look of fright on her face."The door.." She stuttered, pointing towards the
Derek's eyes darted tro and fro the large expanse of the forest, as he stood akimbo, looking for whatever or whomever had broken into his little witch's house; looking for a clue or something that would give him a hint of what had happened at his mate's place. When he and his cousin, with his beta and gamma, had walked into the house which looked disarranged and totally scattered, he had known that someone had been in the home, searching for something. But what could that be? He thought. What possibly can a human have that the queen of witches was searching for her?; and now her house has been ransacked, turned upside down. Did his little witch steal anything? He shook his head negatively. It wasn't possible. She had just moved in here and hadn't even stayed for a month. So what was really the problem? He thought, scratching an itchy spot on his long hair.
With Eva's little help, Emma managed to arrange her books and clothes in order, which had been strewn around earlier.They were picking up her make up kit contents which were lying down idly on the floor, when Derek and Maya stepped into their room. They were back, finally, after more than two hours."Any luck on who did this?" She asked with a blank face, not wanting them to know that she had regained a bit of her memory pack. Since they had chosen to not trust her, and lie to her; she had promised to do the same. Two can play the game. She had thought then."Not really. Must have been some robber or thief." Maya replied, looking around the room, and seeing the improvement in its order."Oh, okay." Emma said. "Am I still safe here?" She asked, wanting to act normally like a person whose house had just been burglarized; she didn't want them go catch on, on her aloofness or perhaps the fact that she d
Emma blinked her eyes repeatedly, as if trying to clear an invisible fog laying idly in her head, as she held unto Derek's shirt, waiting for the pain wracking her brain to subside."Are you okay, Emma?" She heard Eva asked for the hundredth time as the others, and slightly nodded, not wanting to cause the little girl to worry.But it didn't seem like the little girl saw this little action of hers, because in the next second, she, the little beauty told Derek and the others about what had happened earlier, when they had been out searching for the burglar."Derek, would Emma really be okay? This is the second time that this is happening." The little girl had said, causing her older counterparts to gasp in suprise."You don't believe me?" She asked, when she noticed that they were just looking at her like she had muttered an impunity."You can ask her, if you don't believe me." She
The time was 7pm already. The darkening of the sky enlightened Maya that it was time to go back to the pack, since she would be coming back again to sleep over at Emma's house. She wondered if Derek would stay over too. But she was sure Eva wasn't coming back here, at least for tonight. And it was as if the little girl knew; her face was quite withdrawn, not smiley like the usual, she was hungry too, and that was the only way Maya had been able to convince her into going home; that there wasn't much food at Emmas's. The refrigerator in the house needed to be restocked too.The house itself had been arranged totally by the total effort of them all, including Eva. The little girl had refused to be cut out of the cleaning process, and so they had allowed her to help Emma pack up her littered belongings.The sitting room and the other rooms were now in order, the evidence of a burgulary totally erased out.Since It has been decided by Derek that he would stay with E
Emma stared at the woman blankly, her mouth still opened, as the woman crossed her legs, seating on the stool, looking all poise and certain. "You should take a seat." Zipfara said, indicating with her thoroughly decorated white staff that Emma should seat back on her bed. "We have a lot to talk about." She added, tapping her left foot rhythmically on the tiles floor. Emma nodded like a reluctant lizard, before taking a seat, more like dumping herself slowly on the bed. She gulped down her spittle, suddenly thirsty, perhaps due to the drop in temperature in the room. "Do you believe in beings, not entirely humans, existing on the earth?" Zipfara asked, keeping her staff, reclining slightly on the dresser table, then folding her hands together. But Emma was mute. She opened her mouth, then closed it. Her mind still reeling from the scene playing before her eyes. She couldn't believe that she had just watched a beautiful woman metamorphose or ap
