At the same time, the voice of the announcer sounds again.
“We have a match that was arranged in advance. The butcher has got back on his feet. He obviously has not gotten enough after Teis' iron fist, for he has challenged our reigning champion ! Let's see if they can beat the new record, which our young talent Loco set in eighteen seconds! Gentlemen, please bet !”
A stream of betters instantly crowds around the bookmakers.
“We can put a bit on the boss”. Twigs decides and steps over to Hassan.
“OK odds, we got two point three on the boss. Not that wild, but he's also a sure winner, e
*Luca*People are slapping my shoulder and telling me how great I am doing as I flee past them to get outside. I keep my eyes lowered, fearing they might change colour in the middle of thing, walking as fast as I dare until I can feel that I am alone.When I stop I realise that I am out in the middle of a field. I breathe in deeply several times. Even if I can still catch the stench of the barn, out here it is diluted by the fresh night air, and I finally manage to get back in full control. Making my heartbeat go back to normal, for God knows which time tonight.When I open my eyes, my gaze falls upon the silver orb hanging over the field. I have to quickly close my eyes again, breathing in deeply another few times. Not now ! Not now !&
*Soleil*I am on the couch, watching television when my mobile rings.“Hi”. I answer happily.“Hi Baby. Are you home ?” Lefu’s voice sounds on the other end, a bit stressed.“Yeah, I came back a couple of hours ago. Are you okay ?”“Yeah, just a bit of trouble with the club up here. I have to take care of it, so I am sorry but I will be home late tonight”.“That’s fine. I’ll just stay at home”.Actually I am tired a
*Lefu*“I have done everything for you, and now this”. I feel an unknown feeling explode in my temples. Is it jealousy ? Impossible. “Do you know how much I had to fight to get you ? Hmm ?”She pulls away from me.I take a deep breath and control my desire to jump at her. Instead I calmly go to pick up her phone. “Sorry Soleil can’t talk right now. She is too busy dying”. I snarl into it.“Do not touch her. I swear I will hunt you down and rip you to tiny pieces if you as much as put a hair out of place on her head”. It sounds from the other end.“Oh so you are t
*Luca*I roll away from the creep who had been on Soleil. I know I will have to use all the strength and instincts the Wolf have to stop whatever grease hair is. There is no time to Think about what damage I might cause. Without thinking I let the Wolf take over completely. I fly up and right in the man's face.But grease hair is just as fast getting back up. He is ready when I jump him and knocks me to the ground. The air is knocked from my lungs and a rain of fists descend upon me. I am snapping after the hands, but finding no way out.The man has a hard hold on me. A last punch against my ribs makes me howl in pain. But the hit also makes me focused. I manage to rip myself free and jump to my feet, Holding onto the black eyed devil, letting my powe
*Soleil* “Wow, you look amazing in that dress”. Luca laughs softly. “That’s easy for you to say. It’s not the dress that’s the problem, it’s these heels, I am never going to learn how to walk in these”. I sigh. “Ready my love ?” He offers me his arm. “I guess I have no choice”. I mumble, placing my arm on his. We walk towards the doors that has been decorated with branches and balls of hay and a sign saying: ‘Harvest ball’. I stop right outside the doors, remembering something.
Book 3*Luca*I let my eyes glide around the dangy bar, as my nose checks everyone in there. My eyes land on the blonde sitting on a bar stool on the other side of the horseshoe shaped bar.Her eyes meet mine as She lifts her drink to her lips and empties it.“Still no one here ?”Her whisper is so low that no normal human Can hear it, but I am not a normal human and my Wolf senses catch every word like if she was standing beside me.My nose twitches as I once again breathe in the room. Discreetly I shake my head as an answer.“One more d
*Luca*“And the Oscar goes to Soleil Summer!" She laughs.I look down at her with a huff from my wet snout. Then I turn and disappear into the alleyway. I stand for a moment, preparing for the immense pain that comes with the change. No matter how many times I go through it, it never seems to get easier or less painful.“Why did it take you so long to come help me ?” It sounds out from the street.“Argh !” I sner as the last part of the transformation gives me my human form back.“Luca !”“Because I needed to strip
Chapter 3*Soleil*I am reaching for the handle when I notice it. A small box placed on the bench beside the door. I know it’s for me because I recognise the wrapping. My inside freezes to ice and I look around in panicOut on the road I hear Twigs car stars and for a second I contemplate running after it and stop Luca, but I don’t.How has it gotten this close to the house ?the protective spell should still be in effect. I check the salt circle every day.hesitantly I walk over to the box, like it is a bomb that could explode at any moment.Like the last time there is a small card attached and I open it with shaking fingers.<
