The wind blew through my hair, a pleasant welcome on this warm day. The sun was lowering itself in the sky and I knew I’d have to head inside soon.
I was sat just outside our family home, near the river. I smiled gently, my eyes glued to the book in my hand ‘My Future Stepbrother’ By Monroe Thirty. I loved this book. I smiled as I turned the page as I leant back against the tree.
But I didn’t get to lose myself in the book and fantasise about crushing on the male lead Jayce because Liam, my twin brother and future Alpha of The Blood Moon pack ran over.
“Kia, join us. We’re going to go watch a movie.” He said, running his fingers through his hair. I looked up into his cerulean blue eyes, which mirrored dads. He looked a lot like dad actually. The only difference between the two was, Liam had strawberry blond hair like mum’s natural colour.
“I don’t want to go. You lot go.” I replied, turning back to my book. He sighed and snatched it from me, making my eyes flash a brilliant purple. “Liam!”
“Kiara. Enough of this. Come on. You know dad said that the king's coming in two days. Then we’ll be stuck serving the arrogant ass.”
That made me smile. As an Alpha Liam didn’t like to take commands from anyone and having two Alpha parents didn’t help with that. The fact the king was actually coming down… meant he would have another superior around.
“It’s not funny. We’ve all heard he’s more arrogant and cocky than dad and every other Alpha put together.” Liam growled now glaring at me. His deep navy eyes of his wolf showing through.
“It’s a little funny. I actually want to see dad bristle.” I said cheekily. Liam narrowed his eyes
“You are evil. Especially since your daddy’s little girl.” He mocked, he wasn’t wrong. Everyone knew I was dad’s favourite, I was second only to mum.
I stood up and reached for my book. He held it out of my reach. Although I was 5 foot 5, he was over 6 foot.
“Come out with us.” He repeated stubbornly.
I didn’t want to. It would get dark by the time the movie finished and then I was as blind as a bat. Although I was quite good with my senses it wasn’t the same. I hated holding everyone back, no matter how much they said I wasn’t a burden. I was one. I always have been one.
I looked at him and was about to argue when Raven, my feisty sexy temperamental best friend came running over. Raven was a little younger than me and still 17 years old. She had her black hair cut in a bob with bangs with red and plum streaks in it. The most unique thing about her was her mix-matched eyes. The left was an icy blue and the right was a blue-green. Did I mention she was also tiny at 4 feet 9 inches?
“Kia!” she said, wrapping her arms around my waist and hugging me tightly. She was dressed all in black, I don’t think she owned many other colours. Maybe the occasional purple or red.
“Ow ow! You’re crushing me!” I joked
“All I'm crushing are these plushies,” she said, prodding my breasts, making me blush before she let go of me and looked at Liam who towered high above her.
“Raven,” he replied. Their eyes met and I simply stood there. Raven has been my best friend since we were little. But there was something between Liam and her. I even think they might be mates. I can just imagine it, our tiny Luna. But then again I think she had chemistry with someone else too…
“Since you’re here, we were heading out and Kiara here refuses to go. We both know she listens to you.” he said. Raven crossed her arms.
“Even you listen to me.” she remarked, making Liam glare at her as he shoved the book into her arms.
“Don’t get ahead of yourself bitesize.” He growled.
“Ooo I’m terrified.” She mocked, making me laugh. Liam stormed off and we both started laughing.
“I'm not going Raven, don't even try it.” I said stubbornly, taking my book back frowning. This was a signed copy and it meant a lot to me.
“Kia. Liam isn't wrong. Come on and I'm going to be there too. We want you there.”
But I was also the reason Raven stuck by my side when she should be going and doing what she wants. I hated holding everyone back. I always did. Family trips. Mum and dad couldn't even have their full time together because of me. No matter how old I got I was still useless.
“Ok.” I gave in. I didn’t want them to beg me either, knowing this time neither was going to let me get out of it. Worse I knew Liam would take it to dad too. I brushed my fingers through my waist-length sandy blond hair, guess I had no choice.
It was over an hour later and here we were at the movies. Damon Nicholson, the future beta and also Liam’s best friend was with us. The four of us have always hung together. We were now laughing over a comedy, and I was actually enjoying the movie, whilst sipping on my Fanta. We had gone into town, although our pack had grown a lot over the years, we didn’t have our own cinema yet.
“I would have preferred horror.” Raven said tossing popcorn up and catching it in her mouth
“I’m sure there’s a lot you would have preferred.” Damon remarked, making me laugh, taking popcorn and shoving it in Raven's mouth. She bit onto his finger, giving him a mock glare as Liam looked down at the tiny pint of our group.
“Zip it, boys.” Raven said, releasing Damon’s finger. I smiled
“I told you I'm the third wheel. Or should I say the fourth wheel…” I said looking between the two men and Raven. They all stared at me, looking confused.
“What does that even mean?” Liam asked. I shrugged. I often said things without thinking and I knew it irked them. They exchanged baffled looks and I turned back to the movie. I preferred romantic movies like the Titanic but it was hard to choose something we’d all agree on.
“By the way, I love that top Kia!” Damon said teasingly. I raised an eyebrow. I knew what he wanted, an answer to what I meant.
“Hey don’t check her out,” Liam said, frowning at my crop top. I had boobs and an ass and I didn’t mind flaunting them.
“Kia…” Damon pouted
“Don’t Kia me. Figure it out.” I said smugly. Raven was the only one to smirk as the boys frowned at me.
We were halfway through the movie, when I suddenly felt the urge for fresh air.
“I’m stepping out.” I said quietly standing up. Instantly all three stood and I frowned. “Alone.”
“I need the bathroom anyway.” Raven said.
“No. You don’t.” I said firmly. I could see the little blinks at the end of the seats. Humans couldn't really see in the dark either. Didn’t they just follow the little lights?
“I’m taking you.” Liam said firmly, taking my hand and pulling me along. From all three he was the one who dared to piss me off. The other didn’t. I didn’t say anything. He led me to the door and let go of me. “Mind link me when you come back here ok?”
“Fine.” I said. I wasn’t going to, why should I? I hated being treated like an invalid. I stormed off, the familiar spasm of pain up my right ankle to my knee jarring through me.
‘Love you Kia’ Liam mind linked me. My anger faded. I knew what they did was because they loved me.
‘Love you too big brother’
I walked to the bathroom knowing Liam was watching. Entering I looked in the mirror, staring back at me was a pretty young woman. I had a square face, with high defined cheekbones, plump lips and straight long hair. But what I loved the most about my face was my eyes. Sage green with a blue ring, a mix of mum and dads. I gave it a few moments before I left the cinema and walked into the parking lot. My wolf was restless, she wanted me to go further out.
‘Why?’ I asked her, not that I’d get a reply, but I liked to think I could communicate with her, she sometimes sent me emotions as answers. ‘Is there something out there?’ I asked.
The urge to keep walking filled me, and I did, the brightly lit cinema lights becoming fainter as I continued walking. My common sense told me to stop. This wasn’t the first time I’ve done this. Growing up, I followed my impulse and always ended up in danger. But now I had my wolf things would be different right? Although she couldn't see in the dark, she was strong and fast.
Suddenly everything went pitch black. Alarms went off signalling that there had been a power outage. My heart skipped a beat, but I was calm.
‘I don’t think this was a good idea,’ I said to my wolf. I looked around but everything was black
‘Kiara!’ Liam called through the link, panic laced into his voice.
‘Relax I’m safe, I’ll just stay in one place till the lights come on.’ I replied through the link
‘Ok. Raven’s coming’
He didn’t reply and I knew Raven was probably rushing to the bathroom already. I sighed, guess I better head back. I turned to walk inside when I heard a strange unearthly growl. My blood ran cold when I felt something move behind me, the whisper of the wind brushing against me, spurring me into a run…
ALEJANDRO The smell of sex and sweat hung in the air, the sound of skin against skin and moans from the two women who lay on the bed filled the room. They kissed each other as I fucked one of them. I didn’t really feel anything, even as my release rushed through me. I simply pulled out and got off the bed, taking a drag from the cigarette that was between my lips. Not even bothering to cast the two she-wolves I had just fucked a second glance. They won’t be able to walk for a good day or two. They had fulfilled their purpose, and now I didn’t want to see them again. Women were all the same to me. I fucked them and I moved on. I was 34 and I didn’t have a mate, but I'm glad. I am not mate material. I am a fucking twisted freak of nature, I guess not being a werewolf meant I didn’t get one. It’s been over 10 years and I accepted that fact. It just m
KIARAI shifted mid-run, feeling the thing behind me run faster. It wasn’t a rogue I knew that much. I couldn't see where I was going, but I kept running, my ankle screamed at me in protest, and I stumbled a few times.Although my mind screamed at me to turn and look at what was chasing me, a basic instinct. One which was of no use to me I wouldn’t be able to see. I hit a wall and growled, turning I knew I had to fight, or I was done for. I lashed out but I was knocked to the ground. I could hear it approaching as I got up once again. I felt it sniffing me and I tensed, did it not want to kill me. I was wrong, the next thing I felt was something bite into my neck making me howl in pain. The wound stung and I felt my body force itself to shift. My shoulder was aching painfully.A loud growl ri
KIARA"Someone who fucking saved you pup." His deep voice sent shivers up my spine. His scent filled my senses."What’s your name?" I asked softly, feeling the heat from his body sent shivers of pleasure up my spine."Kiara.""Huh?" That’s my name-"Kiara! Kiara!" I frowned. The voice changed to one I recognised rather well. My eyes flew open to see Raven hovering over me. I blushed, realising I had been dreaming. Pushing her back, I sat up.The sun was shining through the curtains and I leaned over, turning my lights off."What were you dreaming about?" Raven asked, curiously staring at me. ALEJANDRO I looked out at the river; I was just outside of Blood Moon Pack territory. Although I had sent the message, I was coming, I couldn't bring myself to enter that pack. The young woman I saved last night flashed through my mind. I was sure she was from that pack. There was something about her. For one, she wasn’t looking at me when she asked who I was. The second was that I hadn't been able to get her voice out of my head. It was slightly husky yet sensual. She was young. I could tell that much from how perfect her skin was. She had her legs crossed, hiding her lower regions, and her arms and hair covered her breasts. For someone who had just been attacked, she still seemed to have cared about her modesty. I've seen more women than I can remember. One more was nothing to it... That was a fucking lie

KIARA Dad was blowing things way out of proportion, blaming Liam for something that wasn’t even his fault. We were in the family lounge, although we were keeping our voices low. Everyone was tense and pissed. "Alright, I get it. I’m sorry!" Liam said closing his eyes, trying to be the calmer one. "Dad enough!" I said frustrated. Mum frowned, placing a hand on dads chest. She was angry we had lied but what did they expect? They always blamed Liam and I hated it. "Elijah. Enough. She’s ok and you need to stop thinking she’s a baby." I gave mum an appreciative smile. If anyone understood it was her, I just wished the others did too. I hated that Liam already blamed himself and now dad was only making matters worse. "I get it, I messed up. I should have stayed with her until she came out of the bathroom." Liam said frowning. I shook my head, hell no. "Dad! Liam! I left the cinema of my own will. If I just returned to the screening room, I
ALEJANDRO "Or What?" Her words surprised me, but I didn’t let it show. Right now controlling my instincts was proving really hard. She lay there on the bed, not even an ounce of fear came from her. That shocked me more than anything. She knew I was stronger; she wasn’t fucking dumb. Her breasts were close to spilling out of her thin-strapped dress and my eyes took in her hardened nipples. I narrowed my eyes at her remark. "You don’t want me to show you what." I said coldly. "Maybe I do?" She challenged, trying to push me off. Her words were tempting me and I was ready to show her exactly what, when suddenly she pinched my nipple hard. I raised an eyebrow, even when her nail had dug into the piercing I didn’t even flinch. Her soft fingers sent a delicious sizzle of pleasure through me. Letting go of her neck, I now pinned both of her arms to the bed on either side of head. "That won't work. Are you really going to resort to such petty tricks?"<
KIARA I shut my door, my heart pounding. What was that...? I felt humiliated and mocked. Why had I even let him touch me? A sting of pain jolted through me. I had made a complete fool of myself, and I had to face him for an entire week. What would dad think if he ever found out? The feel of his fingers down below lingered. I closed my eyes, sliding down the door until I was sitting on the floor. Only my fairy lights were on, all I could see was black and the little glowing drops of light. I felt utterly confused. Sure I have had sex, but to get all worked up over someone so quickly… It confused me. His hurtful comment that I was a slut had really hit me hard. I pursed my lips and stood up, feeling for the light switch. I flipped it on and walked over to my wardrobe. I was going to shower, I didn’t need the feel of his hands on me. I paused, tempted to call my occasional sex partner over. I needed to get that asshole out of my head. Picking up my phone
ALEJANDRO "Why?" Scarlett asked, frowning. "My guess. You." I said, it was the only logical suggestion. Scarlett had abilities a normal wolf didn’t. The couple exchanged looks and Elijah pulled Scarlett into his arms. Kissing her neck, he inhaled deeply. I could sense the possessiveness and concern rolling off him as his mate tried to calm him, stroking his arms. "I’ll be fine." She said softly. "Mm. That would obviously insinuate that someone was sending them and that they are working with a goal." I said, frowning as I remembered how the Wendigo hadn't attacked Kiara either. Did it hesitate because she perhaps had Scarlett’s scent? Or did she have an ability too? "So, someone from the shadows?" Elijah asked, his arms still wrapped around his mate. "There’s definitely somewhere these things are coming from. Whoever they are, they’re smart. I’m still bringing up a fucking blank and I’ve looked. So that’s why I'm here. I will have some
